December 13, 1SS3.
The President's Message submitted to Con
gress on Tuesday of last week opens with a ci
tat >n of our friendly Foreign relations, the ma
king of e>>nsu!ar and commercial treaties with
Servia. Uoumauia, Corea and Madagascar, a
boundary survey treaty w ith Mexico and an ex
tradition one with Spain. A Commission is
suggested to consider our interest in British
North American fisheries—as the fisheries arti.
dot in the Treaty of Washington will termi
nate July 1, 'So. Revision of legislation is urg.
ed touching the deportation of paupers hither
from England—as present application of the
law is ineffectual. Congress is urged to recotu
j*ense the expert commission appointed to in
vestigate, especially for Germany’s enlighten
ment, the alleged injuriousness of American
swine products. France has repealed its legis
lation against American swine. A new marine
treaty to remedy the present hardships of A
merican ships in Mexican waters is (tending.—
The re-survey of the Rio Grande— Pacific boun
dary has been completed and Congress should
prepare for re-locating the boundary tyonu- |
uients. The appointment of a consul-general
at each of the South American capitals i> re
commended. The Bolivia-Chili-Peru contest
has changed to one <>f negotiation wherein our
counsels are prevailing. The modification of
the Hawaiian reciprocity treaty is urged. Le
gations have been established in Persia, Siam
and Corea. The Chin esc-restrict ion law has
been violated by the Chinese in their duties of
certifying that immigrants thither belong to
accepted classes. Provision is urged upon
Congress for exercising discretionary Executive '
power in appointing delegates to chance Euro- I
pcau congresses. The Treasury surplus has !
hitherto been used in reducing the national
«leht and hence the 3 (>er cent, bonds (amount
ing to 305 millions) are the only outstanding
bunds redeemable at the mv mment’s ideas
ure. The 41 and 4 j*cr its. are not payable till
ls‘.*l and l'J07. If the Treasury surplus contin
ues large the 3 per cents, may be redeemed in
1487. The 41 per cents, may be paid at matu
rity and the funds for 1 per cents, be in the
Treasury years before it i- needed. This rapi l
extinguishment oftht debt, however, is unwise 1
beeatueof the high taxation it renders neces
sary. In view of recent statutes decreasing the
tax revenue fifty or sixty millions its further
ditninishment at this si --ion is unadvi.-able. A
part of the present surplus revenue might be
applied to rebuilding our navy. Important
changes are urges! in the law controlling the
circulation of national bank currency, as the
probable effect of such an extensive retirement
of those securities which'are the basis of this
circulation would be to contract its volume and
produce embarrassments. The enactment is
recommended of a law repealing tax on circu
lation and permitting banks to issue notes for
an amount equal to 90 per cent, of the market
value. It is urged that the Trade Dollar be ta
ken at the Treasury and at the mints as bul
lion at a small percent, above the current rates.
The 12*5 internal revenue collection districts
have been reduced by consolidation to 83. The
reduction is urged of local letter postage to one
cent. Executive objection is noted to any
scheme for placing the country’s telegraphic
lines under Post Office control, while govern
ment supervision over inter-state line is recom
mended. The law fixing the fees of jurors,
witnesses, district attorneys and marshals in
Federal courts sh >uld bo revi d—the latter
being given 'itone. Congress is asked to
consider the feasibility of Fislcrol aid to public
primary education. The repeal of the act fash
ioning Utah’s present government is urged, the
territorial control then f to he given to»'.>n
gress, which should appoint a special commis
sion to rule. The placing of Alaska under the
Federal law's protection is strongly urged.—
Congress should protes t the people in their in
tor-State traffic against injustice from railway
cor* rations. The protection of fori*sts on the
public domain is recommended. The efforts of
the civil service commission have thus far prov
ed beneficial. An early interpretation by Con
gress of the constitution's ctau-c rt gulatingthe
presidential sue* cssion is urged. Legislation is
askcii to supplement the guarantees given the
colored man in the 11th amendment—recently
held void by the Courts.
