RECOMMENDATIONS
TO CONGRESS
Covering all the Various Needs of
the Nation—Our Policy in China
and the Philippines Reviewed.
Washington, Dec. 3- —The message of
the president as read to both houses of
congress today is as follows:
To the Senate and House of Representa
tives:—
With the outgoing of the old and the
incoming of the new century, you begin
the last session of the fifty-sixth congress
with evidences on every hand of individ
ual and national prosperity and with
proof of the growing strength and in
creasing power for the good qf republi
can institutions. Your countrymen will
join with you in felicitation that Ameri
can 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 be
cause never so strongly entrenched in
the hearts of the people as now. The
co stitution with few amendments exists
as it left the hands of the authors. The
additions which have been made to it
proclaim larger freedom and more ex
tended citizenship. Popular government
lias demonstrated in its 124 years of trial
here its stability and security and its ef
ficiency as the best instrumAt of nation
al development and the best safeguard to
human rights. When the sixth congress
assembled November, 1800, the popula
tion of the United States was 5,308,383.
It is now 76,304.799- Thui we had six
teen states. Now we have forty-five.
Then our territory consisted of 909,059
square miles. It is now 3,846,595 square
miles. Education, religion and morality
have kept pace with our advancement in
other directions and while extending its
(lower the government has adhered to its
foundation principles and abated none of
them fn dealing with our new peoples
aud possessions. A nation so preserved
and blessed gives reverent thanks to Ood
and invokes His guidance and the con
tinuance of His care and favor.

OUR POLICY IN CHINA.
In our foreign intercourse the domi
nant question has beeu the treatment of
the Chinese problem Apart from this
our relations with the powers have been
happy.
The recent troubles in China spring
from the anti-forigu agitation which ior
the past three years has gaiued strength
in the northern provinces. Their origin
lies deep in the character of the Chinese
races and in the traditions of their gov
eminent. The Tai Ping rebellion and
the opening of Chinese pons to foreign
trade and settlement disturbed alike the
homogenity and the seclusion of China.
The policy of the United States through
all the late trying period was clearly an
nounced and scrupulously carried out.
circular note to the powers, dated July
3d, proclaimed our attitude on the con
ditions in the north as one of virtual an
archy, in which the great provinces of the
south and southeast had no share. We
regard the local authority in the latter
quarters as representing the Chinese peo
ple with whom we mean to retain friend
ship. Our declared aims involved nc|war
against the Chinese nation. We adher
red to the ligitimate office of rescuing the
imperiled legation, obtaining redress for
wrongs already suffered, securing wher
ever possible the safety of American life
aud property in China and preventing a
spread of the disorders of their recur
rence. As was then said—"The policy
of the government of the United States is
PRESID'NT'S
MESSAGE
A Strong State Paper
From the Chief Ex*
ecutive of the Nation.
THK TRUSTS.
In my last annual message to congress
I called attention to the necessity for
early action to remedy such evil* as might
be found to exist in connection with com
binations of capital organized Into trusta,
and again invite attention to my discussion
on the subject at that time which con*
eluded with these words: "It is apparent
that uniformity of legislation upon this
subject in the various states is much to be
desired. It is to be hoped that such uni
formity founded in a wise and juat dis
elimination between what is injurious had
what is useful and necessary in business
operations may be obtained and that
means may be found for congress within
the limitations of its constitutional power
so to supplement an effective code of state
legislation as to make a complete system
of laws throughout the United States ade
quate to compel a general observance of
the salutory laws to which I have re
ferred. The whole question is so import
ant and far-reaching that I am sure no
part will be lightly considered, but every
phase will have the studied deliberation
of congress, resulting in wise and judic
ious actiou."
Restraiut upon such combi nations as are
injurious and which are within federal
jurisdiction should l>e promptly applied
by congress.
to seek a solution which may bring about
permanent safety and peace to China,
preserve Chinese territorial administra
tive entity, protect all rights guaranteed
to friendly powers by treaty and interna
tional law, aud safeguard for the world
the principle of equal and impartial trade
with all patrs of the Chinese empire."
IN THR PHIMPPFINK.S
In my last annual message I dwelt at
some length upon the condition of af
fairs in the Philippines.
By the spring of this year the effective
opposition of the dissatisfied Tagala to
the authority of the United States was
virtually ended, thus opening the door
for the extension of a stable administra
tion over much territory of the archi
pelago. Desiring to bring this about
appointed in March laat a civil commis
sion composed of Hon. W. H, Taft, of
Ohio; Professor I lean C. Worcester, of
Michigan; Hon. Lake E. Wright, of Ten
nessee; Hon. Henry C. Lie, of Vermont,
and Professor Bernard Mosea, of Cali
ornia.
The aim of tbt-ir mission and the
scope of their authority are clearly set
forth in instruction of April 7 , 1900, ad
dressed to the secretary of war to be
transmitted to them.
The commission was instructed that
upon every division and branch of the
government of the Philippines, therefore
must be imposed three inviolable rules—
That no person shall be deprived of life,
liberty or property without due process
of law; that private property shall not be
taken for public use without just com
pensation; that in all criminal prosecu
tions the accused shall enjoy the right to
a speedy and public trial, to be informed
of the nature and cause of the accusation,
to be confronted with the witnesses
against him, to have compulsory process
for obtaining witnesses in bis favor, and
to have the assistance of counsel for his
defense; that excessive bail shall not be re
quired, nor excessive fines imposed, nor
cruel or unusual punishment inflicted; that
no person shall be put twice in jeopardy
for the same offense, or lie compelled in
any criminal case to be a witness against
himself; that the right to security against
unreasonable searches and seizures shall
not be violated; that neither slavery nor
nvoluntary servitude shall exist, except
as a punishment for crime; that no bill of
attainder or exposto facto law shall be
passed ; that no law shall be passed abridg
ing tbe freedom of speech or of the press
or of the rights of people to peaceably
assemble and petition tbe government
for a redress of grievances; that no law
shall be made respecting tbe establish
ment of religion or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof, and that the free exercise
and enjoyment of religious profession
and worship without discrimination or
preference shall forever be allowed.

Bkrun, Dec. 4.—The emperor has In
timated to the persevering president of
the Transvaal republic, officially, that he
would be unable to receive him. A tele
gram to thia effect was wired Mr. Kruger
Sunday afternoon. 'TIs mid that thia
declaration waa accompanied with re-,
proachea in which tbe Boer president ie
charged with "having encouraged a use
lem guerilla wsrefare aud having dis
regarded Germany's advice when
might have still followed it."
The Cologne Gazette, in commenting
on the matter says:
Mr. lCruger'a visit is not agreeable to
Germany, hit aim being to obtain inter
vention in South Africa. It would be
grave political mistake, it would be even
e great crime, to allow him to entertain
even a spark of hope that Germany will
render him any practical support."
Mr. Kruger will remain at Cologne un
til tomorrow, when he will leave for Hol
land.
Report on Creed Revision.
Washington, Dec. 4.—The committee
appointed by the last general assembly
to consider the revision of the creed of
the Presbyterian church met today in the
New York Avenue Presbyterian church
to tabulate tbe returns of the presbyteries
and to formulate a recommendation on
the subject for actiou at tbe next general
assembly in May. There has so far been
no official announcement of the regard
ing the status of the vote cast and conse
quently the final actiou to be token re
mains in doubt. The advocates of revis
ion declared that a large majority of the
presbyteries have voted in favor of a
change. On the other hand the opponents
of revision say that in view of the great
variety of opinion expressed by the pres
byteries the committee will not dare to
do otherwise than to report for dismissal
Several days' discussion will probably be
required before the committee decides
upon the action it will take.
