LoDg winter nights are dreary enough
unless the home is well lighted. The
bright rays of a handsome lamp make
every member of the household look and
feel cheerful. If onr parlor lamps are
sot the handsomest in Santa Fe, then we

though, but settle the matter yourself by
personal inspection and comparison. Onr

THI TBIATMINT Or JOHN L. W1XLEB,
formorly U. S. consul at Tamativa, Mada
gascar, remains to be made. Mr. Waller
remained in Madagascar after his term of
offioe expired, having prooured business
concessions of value, and, upon the de
claration of martial law by the French,
he was arrested .npon various charges,
tried and convicted by a military tribunal
and sentenced to twenty years in prison.
This government requested the records
of that tribunal. The reeord of the court
proceedings and the charges have been
procured, but the evidenoe is still miss
ing. Meanwhile it appears that Mr. Wal
ler's confinement was not onerous.
The president recommends the accept
ance of the Frenoh invitation to par
Mdipate'in the Paris exposition of 1900.
He especially commends the reoent reso
lution of the French chamber of deputies-
favoring a permanent treaty of arbitra
tion between the two countries.
The influenoe of the delusive doc
trine that the internal development
of a nation is promoted and its wealth
incrsssed by a policy whioh is undertak
ing to reserve its home markets for the
exclusive use of its own producers, neces
sarily obstruots their
SILKS IN VOBIION HABKITS
and prevents free aooess to the produots
of the world, is the president's summary
of the trade conditions with Germany.
The exports affected are largely Ameri
oan eattle and products.
The president suggests retaliatory
measures, should fen examination
warrant them, while declaring that
the polioy of this country as a produoing
nation should be marked with national
good faith and reoiprooal forbearance.
An appropriation lor the survey of the
Alaskan boundary is recommended, as is
also the sum of 14.28,000 in full settle
ment of the British sealing elaims. A
commission to settle the boundary with
Canada is nrged.
Iu reference to the Venezuela boundary
dispute, the prssident maintains the Mon
roe doctrine in opposing a (oroible in
crease by any European power of its ter
ritorial power on this oontlnent, and sug
gests that Great Britain submit its elaims
The president touches briefly on the
Hawaiiaa question, ending by saying that
Mr. Thurston, the Hawaiian minister, fur
nished abundant reason for this govern
ment asking that he be recalled.
A change in the alien laws is suggested
which will eheek the vicious system whieh
at present overcomes the immigration
and contract labor laws. " -

ful settlement with suoh consideration
and indulgence toward Nicaragua as are

Special attention is called to the situ

sentimental sympathy and adventurous

of ornelty and the natural love of liberty.
Military arrests of American citizens, the
rights of the American oonsnlar officers
to proteot the property of Americans,
and the Alliance incident have been rec
ognized and are explained.
Regarding occurences in Turkey, while
exoiting oonoern, information is hard to
obtain. But our consul at Sivas has been
instructed to investigate. It is not the
intention of this government to become
entangled in the eastern question, bat
simply to oare for those entitled to its
protection. Ships have been sent to
points of actual disturbance, and,

is earnestly hoped that prompt and effeo

Owing to the growth of American in
terests in foreign countries .the improve
ment of the consular service is urged. In
accordance with the reoommendntion of
the seoretary of state, it has been deoided
to fill oonsnlar positions paying from
$600 to $2,500 annually by promotion
or transfer from some other position in
the department of state. These promo
tions are to be made by examination and
are to inolnde 196 plaoes. Legislation is
needed for oonsul inspection.
The president recommends that am
bassadors and ministers at foreign oourts
be provided with official residences. He
suggests that, while avoiding the glitter
and show of foreign nations, this country
should not suffer by comparison through
the shahbiness and parsimony of its
NATIONAL FINANCIAL SITUATION.
As we tnrn from a review of our for
eign relations to the contemplation of
our national finanoial situation, we are
immediately aware that we approaoh a
subject of domostio oonoern more im
portant than any other that oan engage
our attention and one at present in snoh
a delicate and precarious predioament as
to require prompt and wise treatment.
We may well be encouraged to earnest
effort in this direction when we reoall the
efforts already taken toward improving
our eoonomio and finanoial situation and
when we appreoiate how well the way has
been prepared for further progress by
an aroused and intelligent popular in
terest in the subjeote.
By the command of the people a cus
toms revenue system, designed for the
protection and benefit of the favored
classes at the expense of the great mBss
of our countrymen, and whioh, while in
efficient for the purpose of revenues, cur
tailed our trade relations and impaired
oar entrance to the markets of the
world, has been superseded by a tariff
polioy whioh in prinoiple is based npon
a denial of the right to tax the' many for
the benefit of the few. f
THK S0BJICT OF CUBBENOT.
The compulsory purchase and coinage
of silver by the government, unchecked
and regulated by business conditions and
heedless of our currenoy needs, whioh for
more than fifteen years debased onr cir
culating medium, undermined confidence
abroad in our finanoial ability, and at
last culminated in distress and panio at
home, has been reoently stopped by the
repeal of the laws whioh forced this reok
less soheme npon the country.
The things thus accomplished, not
withstanding their extreme importance
and benefioent effects, fall far short of
ouring the monetary evils from whioh we
suffer as a result of ' long indulgence in
ill advised financial expedients.
After explaining the resumption of
specie payments and the creation of a
reserve gold fund of $100,000,000, the
president gives a brief monetary history
of the United Ststes, quoting the fsot
that in July, 1890, congress provided for
the issuance of silver bullion, bnt decided
that gold and silver must be kept at a
WHAT DEPLETED THE OOLD BBSKBVB.
The redeemed treasury notes, treated
as gold obligations, in 1898 amounted to
$165,000,000, with $500,000,000 outstand
ing. This served to deplete the gold re
serve in April, 1893, to $97,011,830; and
the president ascribes its further de
pletion to the high tariff laws in vogue
until the passage of the Wilson bill, to
gether with the infusion of silver into the
oountry and the increasing agitation for
its free coinage.
In oonseqnenoe of these conditions the
reserve had fallen in February, 1891, to
$65,428,877, a loss of $31,000,000 in nine
months. To relieve this state of affairs
$162,000,000 of bocds were issued in three
periods under the redemption aot of 1890.
President Cleveland explains the neces
sity for the Morgan syndicate oontraot,
and declares that if, at its session in July,
congress had authorized the issue of 8
per cent bonds, $16,000,000 wonld have
been saved. ,
Despite these efforts the gold reserve
is now about in the same condition, there
being but $79,330,906 on hand at present.
CONDITION Or THE OOLD BBSKBVB.
Between 1889 and 1890 bnt $28,000,000
of gold was withdrawn, while between
1890 and 1895 the amount was $375,000,
000. This is attributed to the increased
purchase of silver.
The government has paid in gold nine
tenths of the notes and owes them all.
It has inonrred a bonded indebtedness of
$96,500,000 in establishing the gold re
serve and expended $162,816,600 in an ef
fort to maintain it, besides annual in
terest of $11,000,000.
Immediate legislative relief is asked.
Greenbacks and treasury notes should be
retired by exchanging them for bonds
with small terminations. Tho secreMry
of the treasury should be empowered to
sell bonds abroad - for gold in order to
oanoel these notes. The amonnt of our
retcy thus withdrawn would not be over
$186,000,000, whioh would be supplied by
The president suggests as a relief to
the circulation that the banks be allowed
to issue notes to the full amonnt of the
bonds deposited and that the tax oo their
oiroulation be reduoed to one-fourth of
1 per cent.
As a further relief, it is suggested that
the revenue collections be made payable
TBB FABITT BETWEEN TUB METALS.
Not to pay out United States and treas
ury notes on demand, and to insist on
I ayiog silver notes, the president declares
wonld injure the parity between gold and
silver, which the government is hound to
An excess of revenue receipts would not
alter the question of national solvency,
as in the struggle to maintain the gold
reBbrve, the treasury gold could not pay
debts with the money it bad, but only
with gold, and that, to the foreign invest
ors, is the only oonoern, as the withdrawal
of gold is a direot result of fright.
There is nothing to alleviate the situa
tion so much as legislation which will
lessen the desire for gold. It is not clear
how an increase in revenue, unless it be
in gold, oan satisfy those whose only de
sire is to draw gold from the government
store. Therefore, a revenue increase is
BATIO or 16 TO 1 PRONOUNCED IMPOSSIBLE.
Speaking of the proposition to relieve
the financial situation by the free coinage
of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, the presi
dent declares that no government, no
human contrivance, no aot of legislation
has ever been made able to hold the two
metals together in free coinage at a ratio
of appreciable difference from that whioh
is established in the markets of the world.
A change in the standard to silver mono
metallism would bring a oollaose to our
entire credit system.

stand for the consonance of the govern

while not advocating an aggressive policy
of interference will insist on the mainte

express sympathy for Cuba, and in re
