WASHINGTON, Dec. 3. President McKJnlev this morning sent his message to congress. The document Is an exhaustive review of the country's progress and It deals In a liberal and Intelligent way with the questions of national importance now before the people of the United States. To tho Senate and House of With tho outgoing of the old and the Incoming of the new century yon begin the last sosslon of the congress with evidences on every hand of individual and national prosperity and with proof of the growing strength and Increasing power for good of republican institutions. Your will join with you In felicitation that American liberty Is more firmly established than ever before and that love for It and the determination to preserve it are more universal than at any former period of our history. The republic was never so strong, never so strongly entrenched in , tho hearts of the people as now. The constitution, with few amendments, exists as It left the hands of Us authors. Foreign Relations. An our foreign intercourse the dominant question has been the treatment of the Chinese problem. Apart from this our relations with the powers have been happy. ... Ak has boon snld, "the policy of the government of the United States is to seek a solution which may bring-about . pornutnent safety and peace to China, nreeerv Chinese territorial and administrative entity, protect all rights guaranteed to friendly powers by treaty and International law. and safeguard for the world the principle of the equal and impartial trade with all parts of the Chinese empire." Good will prevails in our relations with the Gorman empire. An amicable ndjustmclt of the long pending question of the admission of our life Insurance companies to do business In Prussia has been reached. . . The settlement of the Samoan problem, to which I adverted In my last message, has accomplished good results. Peace and contentment prevail hi the islands, especially in Tutulli. whore a convenient adminlstratlonthat has von the confidence and esteem of the kludlv disposed natives has been organised under the direction of the commander of the United States -naval station at Pago Pago. nnr friendly relations with Great Britain continue. Tho war In Southern Africa introduced important questions. Vexatious questions arose through Great Britain's action in respect to neutral cargoes, not contraband In their own nature, shipped to Portuguese South Africa, on the score of probable or suspected ultimate destination to the Boer states. Nicaragua Canal. An important matter of an canal has assumed a new phase. Adhering to Its refusal to reopen the question of the forfeiture of the contract of the Maritime Canal Company, which was terminated for alleged non-execution in October. 1S90, the government of Nicaragua has since supplemented that action by declaring the option void for nonpayment of the stipulated advance. Protests in relation to these acts have been Mod in the state department and are .. ,?.. u,nciiiamttnn DfvpTiiiriiT itself re- lievqd from existing engagements, thej jf !.Nlcarasuan government suui a to deal freely with the canal question either In the way of negotiations with the United States or by taking measures to promote the waterway. Overtures for a convention to effvt J. the building of a canal under the of the United States are under consideration; In the meantime the " views of congress upon the subject in the light of the report of the committee appointed to examine the comparative merits of the various translsthmlam ship canal projects may be awaited. 1 commend to the early attention of the senate the convention with Great Britain to facilitate the construction of such a canal and to remove any objection which might arise out of the con- vention commonly called the treaty. Financial Condition, it ?e rratifvinir to be able to state that the surplus revenues for the fiscal vear ended June 30. 1W0, were For the six preceding years we had onlv deficits, the aggregate of which from 1S94 to 1SS9. Inclusive, amounted to KS3.022.991.U. Receipts for the year from all cources exclusive of postal revenues aggregated S367.240.S5LS9. and expenditures for all purposes except for the administration of the postal department aggregated $457,713 791-71. The receipts from customs wero 5233.1 64.S71 16. an Increase over the preceding year of $27,036.-359.41. Receipts from Internal revenue were 5295,327.926.76, ai? increase of 521 over 1S99. The receipts from miscellaneous sources were as against 556.394.975.92 for the preceding year. It Is gratifying also to during the year a considerable reduction is shown in the expenditures of tho government The war department expendi tures for the fiscal year 1909 were 5134.-774,767.75, a reduction of 535,(VW.4S6.69 OTer those of In the navy department the expenditures were 555.953.-077.72 for the year 1900. as against $63.-942.104.25 for the preceding year, a decrease of 57.9S9.026.53. In the expenditures on account of Indians there was a decrease in 1900 over 1S59 of and In the civil and miscellaneous expenses for 1900 there was a reduction of 513.41S.055.74. Our Foreign Trade. Our foreign trade show3 a remarkable record of commercial and Industrial progress. The total of Imports and exports for the first time In the history of our country exceeded 52,000,-000.000. The exports are greater than thev have ever been before, the toMl for" the fiscal year 1900 being an Increase .over 1SS9 of an Increase over 1S9S of $163.-000.752, over 1S97 of 5343.4S9.526 and greater than 1S95 by 5511.S76.144. The growth of manufactures in the United States is evidenced by the fact that exports of manufactured products largelv exceed those of any previous vear. their value for 1900 being against 5339.592.146. Shipbuilding Industry. American vessel during the past three years have carried about 9 per cent of our exports and imports. Foreign ships should carry the least not the greatest part of American trade. Besides realizing a proper national aspiration, the placing of the United stnfis in the first, rank of commercial nowers will mean the ( Hshment and healthy growth along our mictt nf n rtioifnpttvplv national indus try, expanding the field for profitable employment of labor and capital It will increase the transportation facilities and reduce freight charges on the vast volume of products brought from the Interior to the seaboard for export, and will strengthen an arm of the national defense upon which the founders of the government and their successors have relied. In again urging Immediate action by congress on measures to promote American shipping and foreign trade, I direct attention to the recommendations on the subject in previous messages, and particularly to the opinion expressed In the message of 1S99: "I am satisfied tne juugmem, oi uie country favors the policy of aid to our merchant marine, which will broaden our commerce and markets and upbuild our sea carrying capacity for the products of agriculture and manufacture-, which, with the increase of our navv, means more work and wages to our countrymen, as well as a safeguard to American Interests In every part of tho world." Hawaiian Cable. I renew the recommendation made in my message of February 10. 1S99, as to the necessity for cable communication between the United States and Hawaii, with extension to Manila. Since then circumstances have striking ly emphasized this need, burveys nave shown the entire feasibility of a chain of cables which at each stopping, so shall touch on American territory. o that the system shall be under our own complete control, juanila once within telegraphic reach, connection with the svstems of the Asiatic coast would be increased and profitable opportunities for a more direct cable route from our shores to the Orient than is now afforded bv the continental and lines. I urge attention to this important matter. Hawaiian Development. Much interesting information is given in the report of the Governor of Hawaii as to the progress and development of the Islands during the period from July 7. 1S9S. the date of the approval of the joint resolution of the congress providing for their annexation, up to Annl 30, 1900. the date of the approval of the act providing a government for the territory, and thereafter. The last Hawaiian census, taken in the vear 1S9G. gtves a total population of 109.020. of which 31,019 were native Hawallans. The number of Americans reported was S.4S5. The results of the federal census taken this year show the islands to have a total population of 154,001, showing an increase over that reported In 1S96 of 44.9S1. or 41.2 pt?r cent There has been marked progress in educational, agricultural "and railroad development of the islands. In the Territorial Act of April 30, 1900, Section 7 of said act repeats Chapter 34 of the Civil Laws Of Hawaii, whereby the government was to assist in encouraging and developing the agricultural resources of the republic, especially Irrigation. The Governor of Hawaii recommends legislation looking to the development of such water simply as may exist on the public lands. with a view or promoting iana The earnest consideration of congress is invited to this important recommendation and others, as embodied In the rcrort of the secretary of the Interior. TT- DR. EMERSON'S PAPER. Historical Society Hold an Interesting Session Evening of Reminiscence. Dr. N. B. Emerson was listened to with wrapt attention in the reading of his highly entertainlns paper on the old Honolulu Fort, which was enjoyed by the members of the Hawaiian Historical Society last evening in the auditorium of the Young Men's Christian Association. Dr. Emerson's paper treated upon not on ly the old fort In particular but the early history of the city. The subject was one that brought oat many points of earl' history that proved instruc tive as well as profitable to all preset After the reading ot the paper, a general discussion, was next in or der. and was participated in by sev eral including Governor Dole. Messrs. Pratt Parke. Brown and Allen, and Mrs. Nakulna. Each added much, tc the enjoyment of the evening by a timely reminiscence.

THEY ARE MOT MEMCiHS IT ALL HmWAIIAN NATURALIZATION WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR THIS CLASS OF PEOPLE. If Any Such Have Been Permitted To Vote In Hawaii It Would Seem To Have Been Wholly Illegal-Instructions Received. There is a new phase to the Chinese Hawaiian-American citizenship mat is to be looked Into at an early date. Since the ruling of the Solicitor of the Treasury that tne Organic Act did not give Chinese who had been naturalized as Hawaiian citizens the rights of American citizenship by virtue of section four of the Act, it has oeen deemed by Collector Stackable that Chinese may not sign as surety on a" bond gtvgn by consignees making entry of good's at the Custom House. The blank for the ''surety's oath" is in form as follows: "I . residing at No street, in State of a surety on the within bond, do solemnly that I am a and citizen of the United States, and that I am worth the sum ot Dollars, over and above all debts, claims and liaDilities of every nature whatsoever, and aside from propertj exempt by law from execution." The first general inkling had here that the Chinese who were naturalized and became citizens of the Repub lie of Hawaii had not become citizens of the United States by virtue of the Organic Act was last week when Attornow W. A. Henshall called upon Collector Stackable to procure for -a client papers entitling him to enter the State of California and vouching for his citizenship. The Collector pulled a ruling by the Solicitor of the Treasury on the auorney which was rendered in September this year. Following is the opinion, of the Solicitor: Department of Justice, Office of the Solicitor of the Treasury. Washington; D. C, Sept 1st, 1900. "The Secretary, of the Treasury: "Sir: Commissioner-General by reference of August IS, 1900, endorsed on a communication from Hind, Rolph & Co., of San Francisco. Cal.. desires to be informed whether a Chinese laborer who produces and exhibits to the Collector $1,000 in cash on the eve of his departure from the United States, intending to take such money with him. is entitled to return to the United States as having 'property therein of the value of one thousand dollars.' I answer this question in the The language of the Treaty of 1S94 (2S Stat. 1210 Art 11) is: "T.e preceeding article shall not apply to the return to the United States of any registered Chinese 'is borer who has a lawful wife, child, or parent in the United States, or property therein of the value of one thousand- dollars, or debts of like amount due him and pending settlement" All other departing Chinese laborers are absolutely barred from ,-e-entry into this country, and the only reason for exceptions made is the prevention of hardship ana injustices !r denying a man access to his family and property, or an opportunity to collect his deots. The treaty has, in my opinion, no application to the case of a laborer who takes his 'property out of the country, and desires to with it. The Commissioner-General also desires to be informed whether Chinese merchants in Honolulu, H. I., who be came citizens of the Republic of Hawaii, under the laws of that country prior to June 14, 1900, are entitled to come and go as American citizens. Section 4 of the Act of Congress, April 30. 1900, (Stat p. 141), provides as follows: "That all persons who were citizens of the Republic of Hawaii on August twelfth, 1S9S, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States, and citizens of the Territory of Hawaii." This language, standing alone, would seem to confer upon Chinese persons who had become citizens of Hawaii on or before August 12, 1S9S. the status of citizens of the j&nited States. Tills would include not only the rigfet to enter and re-enter the Territory of Hawaii at will, but the right to enter the United States proper, and to exercise all the rights .f citizenship, including the right to vote and to hold office. J am that it was not the intent tf congress to make citizens ot this class ot Chinese persons, and I assign the following reasons for my conclusion: 1 The convention of 1S94 with China, Art 4, provides that Chinese persons ia the United States shall not have the right to become naturalized, citizens, and, 'Sec 14 of- the Act of May 1SS2. (22 Stat. 5S). provides that no state or federal court shall admit Chinese to citizenship. It is hardly 1 to be conceived that congress intend- ed to admit to the fun rights of benship a class of persons in a dis tant land, who if they had Been domiciled in our midst, could, under no circumstances, ever become citizens the United States. 2 Not only are the naturalization laws of the United States extended to the Territory of Hawaii by Sec. 5 of the Organic Act of April 30. ISuO. as being not "locally inapplicable" there, but Sec 100 of that Act expressly provides that those laws shall apply to persons in the Hawaiian Islandsr which is as much as to say that no Chinese persons shall be naturalized in that Territory. It is hardly to be supposed that congress intended by Sec. 4 of the Act of April 30, 1900, to "naturalize" in effect a class of Chinese in. those Islands, who, under the general laws, coulu never attain to citizenship. 3 After having in Sec 100, above referred to, provided generally for the admission of foreigners to citizenship in the Hawaiian Territory, congress, by the next section, provides that "Chinese in the Hawaiian Islands" may, within one year, obtain the certificate of residence provided by the Acts of May 5, 1S92. and Nov. 3, 1S93, (27 Stat 2a; 2S Stat 7). This is the only section -of the Organic Act which relates to tne Chinese. Congress seems to have assumed that the entire body of cninese exclusion laws was in force in the Territory of Hawaii under Sec. 5 of the same act, and being not locally inapplicable "to Hawaii." There would have been no .necessity for this provision but for the fact that the time in which Chinese might register under the Acts of 1S92 and 1S93 had expired. Congress may have intended by this section to dispose of the whole Chinese question, so far as it related to the Hawaiian Islands. 4 Sec. 10L of the Organic. Act, so far as it imposes upon a Chinese laborer who had become a citizen of tho Republic of Hawaii prior to August 12, 1S9S, the duty of registering as a laborer and ootaining a certificate of residence, and so far as ... denies such a laborer the right to enter the Unit ed States from the Hawaiian Islands is inconsistent with and repugnant to Sec. 4 of the same Act, " the latter section is to be construed as admitting Chinese .citizens of Hawaii to niti7nchin nf tbp United States lor those restrictions are incompatible with the idea of citizenship. If congress had intended or apprehended such a construction of Sec. 4, it is hardly probable that it would have allowed Sec. 101 to stand in its present shape. It is true that Sec. 4 is not in every respect inconsistent with, and repugnant to, Sec. 101, for there may be a class of Chinese persons to whom Sec 101 would alone apply, namely, those who had not become citizens of the Republic of Hawaii prior to August 12, 1S9S. But the inconsistency anu the repugnancy in the respects mentioned, when considered In connection with the well-known Chinese exclusion policy of the United States, and the general tenor of legislation en caat subjects, are. in my opinion, sufficient to show that congress intended by Sec. 101, to provide for all questions relating to the statue of Chinese residents of the Hawaiian Islands, and that it was not intended that any class of such residents should be converted into citizens of the United States. In this connection I may call attention to the fact that the "Chinese exclusion" legislation of the United States has been directed against the Chinese as a race, wherever born oi residing, and not merely against the subjects of the Chinese Emperor. Those laws apply to all Chinese per sons not born in the United States, though citizens of nations other than China. They are the only people who are excluded from the United States as a race, and they are the only race of foreign-born people who can never become citizens of the United States. These considerations .should have great weight in the construction of Sec. 4 ot the Act creating the-Territory of Hawaii. I cannot for one moment suppose it possible that Con gress meant that a race of people who are expressly and exceptionably prohibited from the privileges of naturalization in the United States, although residing and ving business interests here, might with propriety, be admitted en masse as citizens of our country because they were citizens of a country annexed to ours. In my opinion Sec 4. of said Act has no reference to Chinese and relates only to races of people who are not excluded fro mthe privileges of citizenship in the United States. I must nold. therefore, that the Chinese citizens of the Republic of Hawaii acquired no status or rights as citizens of tho United States by virtue ot the Act of April. 30, 1900." Collector Stackable is of opinion that as the Treasury Department has been advised that the .Organic Act did not give the Chinese in question rights as American citizens they are precluded from acting as sureties on bonds given on entering goods at the Customs House.

MAY ABOLISH BOUNTIES FOR BEET SUGAR GROWERS France, Germany and Austria Said to Have Reached Such an Agreement Effect on Island Cane. NEW YORK. Dec. 3. The news that France. Germany and Austria nave reached a tentative agreement for abandoning the export bounty on sugar is attracting quite a little attention at the moment in local sugar circles and somewhat diverse ries are current regarding the effect of such a change if made in refiners supplies here. There seems general agreement, however, that a very Important effect would be an immediate and large increase in the exports of American preserved fruits and jellies at the expense of the business of the great English and Scotch preserves. ( The effect of the removal of the .Eu ropean bounties would also, it is argued, be to increase the consumption and restrict production of sugars In the continental countries of production. Beet sugar growing is carried on, on such a close margin that it is not profitable unless the growers get a bounty. Thl3 decreases competition. This in turn will encourage the production of cane sugars and will thus benefit directly Hawaii, Cuba and Porto Rico. "I believe," said one of the closest students of the raw sugar supply, "that with the development of Cuba under the trade relations which will probably be sought by that Island i with this country, Cuha will in a few years be producing sufficient cane siv gar to completely shut out the beet . sugars of Europe. Cuba's last crop will amount to 200.000 tons. This crop will run about 500,000 tons and the next crop will probably 750,000 to 1,000.000 tons." Judge Wilcox had sixty-five arraignments in the police court yesterday.

Van Dyke was the subject ; under discussion, and the paper by Miss Johnson which was postponed from the last meeting was read and added much to the pleasure of the evening. MIMS THE PROVINCE OF SHAH-SI BERLIN, Dec 3. A special from China to the Volks Zeitung reports a fearful mission slaughter in the province of Shan-si. The first victims, the despatch says, were a Catholic bishop and his coadjutors and four European priests, Franciscans, Italian and French. The Governor invited them to his house, pretending to give them better protection, but when they arrived their hands were Ued. Then the Governor himself poinarded them all. Next the Governor went to the Bishop's residence with a number of soldiers and seized six Marseilles sisters. He promised them money and oistingulshed husbands If thr would renounce Christianity, which offer they unanimously rejected. Thereupon the Governor poinarded them and also a number of Chinese priests and' thirty Chinese sisters, and 200 orphans from 3 to 10 years of age. Fifteen seminarists who had hidden. 31 r. and Mrs. Atwater and their two little children; Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Price an their son. all ot the American Board; ilr. and Mrs. Lagren. of the Swedisfi, and Miss Idred. an English woman, were butchered. The story of theat; murderers directly Implicated Yu Hsien, the Governor of Shan-si. As announced in the Peking despatch of the Association Press of Saturday last, members ot Li Hung Chang's staff say the Chinese Emperor will probably send Yu-Hsien a silk cord, which is an intimation that he must hang himself. A number cf the reports have bean published of the June massacres chi enma of rh riptp.ils blns too horrible for publication. Men, women and children were butcherei. Fifteen seminarists, who had hidden themselves in a cistern, wereth despatch says, ued to stakes and forced to drink the bleed of the first victims.

Vlorni said they were playmates from boyhood and that Correa often came to see him. His sister conducted herslt properly so far as he know. Mrs. Andrade had reported that her husband had used her violently from jealousy, of having spoken to Correa and other men on the street and there were marks on her throat Adelaide Andrade.

On cross-examination by Mr. Mc- Clanahan. she said she and Correa were ordinary friends. She had other gentlemen friends quite on the same standing whose names she did not care to montion. She refused to examine a parcel of letters written by Correa to her In 1S96. Correa had klssea her but once and she mado hlni stop. Once Correa came to her like the scene of Romeo aud Juliet, for she said she was not attired In her night robe. It being early 'n the evening and she did not toll hr husband of it. She had ceased to love her husband long ago. Ho did not love her, so as a conclusion, thora was no love lost Mr. McCianahan read extracts from the letters of Correa and asked the, witness the why and wherefore jt their being written. One started out with "Dearest and only love". Never any present of pol and fish was glvn. Another letter said in part: "I wish there was a place where you and I could meet How about the' place next door?

A letter of Correa spoke of her as the "jewel of my heart" and said. "Don't tell me to marry some oai else. How unfortunate that you did not listen to my pleadings years ago when you were yet single." Another extract said. "Dearest A." and "You also accuse me of being false to you. I have always been faithful.'. She said she told him to stop writing. Never thought of marrying Correa. At Walalua. Correa addressed nr In a letter as "Dearest and loving A." The husband was referred to in a letter as "Nlbbs" and that was not a term of endearment Correspondence ceased at her request In 1S96. A. G. Correa had his say: Said ho never committed adultery with defendant as charged. Once had some regard for Mrs. Andrade. Kissed her once. Andradc's testimony, according to Correa, Is a He and he knows It Witness never had any hope cf marrying the woman. He said tfce letters were "pau" long ago. Had no more purpose In walking with the woman than Mr McCianahan would have. "You don't know what purpose I might have." said Mr. 3IcCIanahan. The court allowed the divorce holding that while the letters were remote thev tended to show the relationship and the acquaintance had been kept up and adultery had been committed. The woman having no affection for the husband it showed guilt. The custody of the child was awarded to the tather.
