they expect to he able to return them

enough to elect the member at large. There

Since the war the cost of the public

The government printing oilico has growu
to be the greatest establishment of the

less waste, hot the main reason tort he
enormous outlay lies in the fact of the
practice of Congress in constantly ordering

to reiluce so much' the revenflfcs of the {

is willing to afford the whisky interest any t
reasonable measure of relief, and will re- \
port an amendment extending the time in

ilateinent of a manufacturer that the post-,

>v the iron workers was duo to dissensions
n the ranks of the Amalgamated associaion
here, and to the statement that the
reasury of the association is empty, i'resilent

'irst district was directed to have the wages
luestion settled by May 1, in order that
ither districts might be able to settle in the
lext thirty days, but in postponing
iction no law was violated,
['he > postponement was decided
ipon in order that every member of the
ssociation might have time to think
ahnlv over llio whola nitimtion. In ri>
:urd to the Cincinnati strike, instead of the
ost being $10,000 it was $00,000. Every
'cnt of this was paid, and at no time lias
my debt been contracted; consequently it
l oulil bo folly to collect a $5,000 assessnent
now to sunply a want that never exsted.
It is not for mo to say how much or
iow little money we may have inthetrensiry,
but it is not empty. 1 could throw a

Washington, May 'j.?Tlio correspond'
ence, respecting tho condition of Imivl
in Itussia, sunt to Congress to*dny, is very
voluminous and includes all tliu correspondence
ou the subject during the past
ten years.
Tho last letter writfen by tlio Secretary
()[ Statu tn till! .A fiicnc.'iM M intafoi* ?e Sit*
Petersburg, under date of tho 15tl? ultimo)
is ns follows:
"J'rejudico of nice and creed having, in
our day, given way to tho claims of our
common humanity, tho people of the
United States have heard, with great re*
Bret, tho stories of tho suflorings of the
Jow8 in Kussiu. It may bo that the accounts
in tho newspapers nro exaggerated,
and tho same may bo trno of some of the
private reports. Making, however, duo nl*
lowanco for misrepresention, it can scarcely
be doubted that much has been don'o
which tho humane and just person must
condemn.
ino rrcsiuent,oi course, tcets that ino
government of Russia should not be hold
morally responsible for acts, which it eon*
siilers wrong but which it may be power*
less to prevent. If that bo true in this case,
it would bo worse than useless for mo to ,
direct you, as instructed by the President
of tbo United .States, to give an oiiicial ex*
pression to the feeling which this treatmentof
the Jews calls forth in this countrv.
Should, however, the attitude of the Kifs*
sian government bo different, and should
you be of the opinion that more vigorous
efforts might be put forth (or the proven- i
tion of this groat wrong, you will, if a favorable
opportunity affords, suite,with all prop- ,
er deference, that the feeling of friendship,
which the United States entertains for
Russia, prompts this, government to oxnruss !
the hope that the imperial will find means
to cause the persecution of these unfortunate
fellow beings to cease.
"This instruction devolves a delicate duty
upon you, and wide discretion is given you
in its execution. However much this Republic
may disapprove of affairs in other
nations, it does not conceive that it is its
right or its province officiously or offensively
to intermeddle. If, however, it
should come to vour knowledge that any
citizens of the United States are made victims
of persecution, you will feel it your
duty to omit no effort to protect them and
to report the awes to this department"
It appeals, from the correspondence between
Minister Foster and Secretary
Blaine, that the action of the Russian
authorities towards American citizens is of
two kinds:
First, absolute prohibition of residence
in St. Petersburg and other cities of the
Empire on the ground of a Russian law,
nuiuu (luninio nu liiiiivu JBff IOJJVC IU(TO. i
ami that the treaty between Kussia and ?
the United States gives to our citizens in
Russian jurisdiction no other rights or
privileges than i3 accorded to native
Russians,
Second, permission of residence and
commerce, conditioned on belonging to tho
tirst guild of liUssian merchants and taking
out license.
In si letter from Secretary Blaine to Minister
Foster, under date of July 211, 1SS1,
the former says:
"On the case arising, this Government
would bold tlmt the treaty of 1S:;*2 conferred
specific rights on all American citizens,
in the matter of the disposition of their
personal property and their residence
abroad, irrespective of any conditions save
those which the treaty expressly creates.
"I need hardly enlarge on the point that
the Gowmnieni. nf tho ?
eludes its treaties with foreign states, with ;
provisions for the equal protection of nil <
American citizens. 1 win make absolutely i
no discrimination between them, whatever t
their origin or creed, so that they abide by
tfie laws, at home or abroad. It must give
them due protection and expect like protection
from them. Any unfriendly or i
discriminatory act against them on the part <
of a foreign power, with which we are i
at peace, would call for our earnest remon- '
strance, whether a treaty existed or not. (
It is therefore a source of unfeigned regret \
to us when a Government, to which we i
are allied by so many historical ties as to ;
that of Russia, shows a disposition, in '
regard to dealing with us,to take advantage i
of technicalities." j
In response to*this communication Mr.
Hoffman, secretary uf thy legation, wrote
to Secretary lilaine.
'The Knssinn Minister of Foreign.Affairs i
still maintain.1? view that, in the treaty of i
1834 the words "on condition of their i
submitting to the laws ami ordinances \
then prevailing," subjected American* I
Jews to the treatment of native Jews; that
these views had also been given to the 1
representatives of other foreign power??. 1
The Russian Minister said that, as regards
the moral side of the question, he, personally,
would he glad to see an important i
modification in the laws regarding the condition
of Jews in Russia, but that they had
brought much of the harshness of those
laws upon themselves."
The President's message is informal,
merely transmitting the documents and
making no comment or recommendation.
