Immediately associated with tho flnnn

question, what legislation is needed regarding
the national currency! Tho aggregate

Is about tBM.OOO.OOO. Nearly

Tho objections' which ho urges against the

seem to mo insurmountable For averting

havo been suggested, eithor of which if

now, of tlio faeo value, of their deposited

At i OUlt UNPnOTEOTKD COARTrt.
. The President calls the attention of Cout
Cress to the presont condition of
oiif extended sea coast, upon which
are w many largo cities, whose
wealth and, importance to thu country
voiiid" in tlmo of war Invito attack from
modern armored ships, against which our
existing dofcnslvo works could glvo no adequate
protection, and suggests that, If
thoso works aro not put in un efllcient condition,
we may easily bo subjected to
humiliation by hostile ixiwers greatly inferior
to ourselves. Suitnblo facilities for
the manufacture of heavy ordnance
adapted to modern warfare, and the perfection
of our torpedo defenses
re also lecommcnded.
THE STATE MILITIA.
The oncouragoment of Btnto militia
organizations by tho National
Government, the President believes
would lie followed by very
gratifying results, and would afford, in
Budden emergencies, the aid of a largo
"body of volunteers educated in tho
of military duties.
oun nnr.uxfATia navy.
Tho Prcsldont endeavors to impress upon
tho attontlon of Congress tho nocossity of
continued progress in tho reconstruction of
tho Navy. Tho condition of tho Treasury
makes .tho present an auspicious tlmo for
putting this branch of the service in a
slaU of efficiency. Whllo it is no part of
our policy to and maintain a Navy
ablo to cope with thoso of the other great
powers of tho world, and whllo we have no
wish for foreign conquest, nnd tho peace
which wo have long enjoyed is in
no seeming danger of interruption, still our
naval force should bo adequate for tho do-
'fence of our harbors, tho protection of our
commercial interests, nnd the
of our national honor.
AT TO OOVEIINMENT TELEOnAIMI.
On tho subject of Government telegraph,
tho President says, that such reflection ns
ho hns been ablo to givo to it, since his Inst
annual message, has not led him to change
the views thon expressed, in dissenting
from the recommendation of tho then
Postmaster General, that tho Government
nssumo tho same control over the tele
graph which it has alwuyu exercised
over the mall. Admitting that
the Government's authority In t'e
pioralscs is as nmplo as has over been
claimed, it would not, in his judgment, be
a wise use of thut authoi Ity to purchaso or
assume control of existing linos, or to construct
others with a view of cntorlng into
general competition with a private enterprise.
He dismisses the subject by now
ing tlio belief, however, that thu Goern
ment should exorcise souio sort of sujiervls
ion over telegraphic conimunl
THE EDUCATION QUESTION
Hcfcrringto the alarming state of illltor
hey in certain portions of the country, the
President suggests Federal nld to public
primnry education wherever adequate
has uot already been made.
Concerning tho extlrpatianof P'ilbiny,
tho President is convinced that .he ell has
become so strongly intrenched in Utah that
it is profitless to attack it with any hut the
stoutest weapons which constitutional Je'is
lation can fashion. He therefore favors
the repeal of the act upon which the exist
tug Government depends, the
ay the National legislature ot the en tin
political control of tho Territory, nnd the
establishment of a commission with such
I towers mid duties as shnll bo delegated
to it bjr law.
s, 11AILIIOAD rniVILKOES.
Tho President's conclusions on the subject
of governmental interference, sujicrvlsion,
of railroad commerce Is doses
ibed as .follows: Tho right of these
allwny corporations to u fair nnd
return upon their Investments nnd to
reasonable freedom in the regulations must
bo rocoguUed, but it seems only just, that,
ns far as its constitutional authority will
ptruilt, Congress should
at large in their traillo against
ads of In jnstieo which" tho state governments
are powerless to prevent.
The effect of tho new system of civd
scrvico tho President liclloves have thus far
proved bentfloial. It'a practical methods
-appear to bo adequato ior the ends proposed,
and there hnsbcen no serious
dilllculty in carrying them into effect.
Un tho subject of Presidential succession
nnd the propor interpretation of tho constitutional
phrase "Inability to discharge
tho powers and duties of said olllce," the
President expresses tho hopo that these
quostions will find speedy solution, lost an
emergency arises when longer delay will
bo impossible, and auy determination
furnish cause for anxioty and ularin.
THE CIVIL niailTS MATTER.
Tho mossago closes with the following
allusion and suggestion respecting the
Mvit rights of the colored race: "Tho Fourteenth
Amendment of the Constitution coders
the right of citizenship upon all persons
.orn, or naturalized, in tho United States
inil subject to tho jurisdiction thereof. It
.vus tho special purpose of this amend-
ne.nt to insuro tho colored race tho full
their civil and political rights.
'ertniu statutory provisions, intended to
ecure tho luforcoment of thoso rights, have
een recently decided unconstitutional by
ho Bupremo Court. Any legislation
thereby Congress may lawfully supplement
the guarantees which the Constitution
affords for tho oquul enjoyment by all
ho citizens of the United titates of every
right, privilege, and immunity of

heavily the dav before. He refused her.
Other words followed, and he threw her on
tho floor and put his foot ou her breast.
Hlio never spoke, and soon died. He felt
mad and discouraged, but had not thought
of killing her. Ho then went about the
house bewildered not knowing what to do
with himself. Ho tried to put her into a
box but it was too sinall. Ho thin took a
trunk uud cut her knees to get her in. Hhe
did not bleed any and he did not wash the
axe. He then went down street, re tinned,
and in nn hour dragged the trunk
down stairs, put It on a wheelbarrow
and started off, Intending to dispose of the
body and drown himself. On the road it
occurred to him to go to Buddy's house, to
which ho oxpectod to move lit a day or two,
He had no thought of harming 'them. On
reaching there he left the trunk outsldo,
had some conversation with Mrs. Buddy,
went tlown town, went back to Ford's, carried
some things over to Ruddy's in a pall,
and thought he would get up in the morn
ing nnd bury the trunk somewhere. Then
he took the trunk into the house. He nte
supjier with the Buddys, then took off his
coat and vest and laid down in the room
with the trunk, while the Buddys went to
bed in tho front room. Ho could not sleep
and grew constantly worse. Couldn't sit
down or walk, and didn't know what to do
with himself; would go out, come in, and
wnlk around In the house. Buddy's folks
finally got up between twelve nnd one
o'clock. Mrs. Buddy made him
some tea. Buddy sat up with him.
Ho did not intimate to Buddy
what the trouble wns. About throe o'clock
it occurred to him thut ho might kill
them nnd then burn the house. That
very moment ho seized a hatchet and
struck Buddy, killing him instantly. Mrs.
Buddy ran out. Ho grabbed at her and
struck her with the hatchet and she
screamed. Tho child was Bcreamlng also.
Ho took it out of bed but did not remember
cutting it. Tho child was found dead
wltll his head nearly severed from his
body. He chopped open the trunk,
turned Mrs. Ford's body out on the floor,
pullod the body around, poured on
set it on fire, and ran into tho street.
Ho then went to Ford's but found the door
bolted and then staited for Plymouth. He
did uot hear the fire bolls and never
knew the house wns burned nntll Jewell
told him. Ho had no hard feelings against
Mrs. Ford Or tho Ruddys. Tho murderer
dcni'.d making the incision in Mrs. Fonl's
leg, which appeared to havo been made for
tho pui pose of bleeding, ond denied throw
ing tho hatchot Into tho river. Ho said ho
iut tho hatchot where ho found It. The
