MEEKER, - - • COLORADO. The world seldom had a jist elation of the people who save Its money. Skilfully drawn contracts make u.e about two-thirds of the fun there is i” the world. People who try to help their friend? are never without employment that testa their capacity. The less people know, the more cer tain they are concerning the truth o' what they imagine. The lazier a man Is the more apt he la to spend time complaining because his salary is not large. It seems almoct Impossible for tal ent and sense to become joint tenants of the same human brain. All people are not so foolish as they look when members of a gaping crowd watch the moving of a safe. The boy who is not taught how to use a Jackknife is seriously handi capped in the race of life. It is a good thing to remember in the giving out of offices that appetite is not a sure sign of capacity. While a woman is only as old as she looks, a man's age is about equal to that of the company he keeps. The woman who finds no fault with her fellow woman is as near a saint as 't is possible for man to Imagine. The man who tries to make his sur roundings fit him has lots of trouble, but generally wins if he perseveres. It is reported that New York has discarded diamonds entirely. Gotham may regret this in some future hour of need. A Methodist clergyman in Larabee, la., has shot and killed a local tough named Harry McWhirter, but it ap pears that he acted in self-defense and the universal opinion is that the shoot ing was entirely justifiable. Still, it is a rather novel role for the clergy. The United States has finally suc ceeded In purchasing the house in which Lincoln died in Washington. It is directly opposite Ford’s theater and the wounded president was carried thither directly after the fatal shot was fired. Of late years the house has been used as a Lincoln museum, and for the purpose of perpetuating this museum the last congress appropriated the Rum of 930,000 for its purchase from the present owner, Louis Schade, proprietor and editor of the Washing ton Sentinel. Recently ten little children were sold at auction in the Chicago head quarters of the Salvation Army. Brig adier Fleming conducted the auction and received bids from various people impersonating severally Fame, Art, War, Wealth, Education, Pleasure, Ease, Selfishness and other attributes, the highest bid. naturally, being made by Wealth. Then Mrs. Fleming, im personating Christianity. outbid Wealth and bought the children. This is prqbably the most novel meanß of propagating religious ideas yet at tempted by this enthusiastic organiza tion. The release of Mrs. Castle was to be expected. In fact, the only real in justice done this unfortunate woman was the enormous amount of bail de manded. Since the change in the laws regarding verdicts in England two years ago, the former verdict of "not guilty owing to Insanity" is dispensed with and the verdict "guilty but in sane” takes Its place. Therefore, in the case of such a verdict a judge would have no choice but to send the prisoner to an Insane asylum. This is the reason why Mrs. Castle was rec ommended to offer a straight plea of guilty, and then trust to just what has happened, a "discharge for medical grounds.” The law of increase is reiterated in the history of the potato crop of the Hudson Bay region, as related by the Rev. Edgerton 3. Young. He carried with him to that distant land a few potatoes, the size of walnuts, wrapped them in cotton, and hung them near a stove to keep them from freezing. In the spring they had shrunk to the size of peas; but they were planted and carefully nurtured. A pailful of fine potatoes was dug in the autumn. The crop the second year was six bushels the third year one hundred and twen ty-five bushels, which were divided . mong the natives; until now thou sands of bushels annually vary the hitherto exclusive diet of fish and game of the people of northern Canada. The Japanese have adopted more modern methods in committing sui cide. and instead of disemboweling as formerly nearly 80 per cent of the peo ple who resort to the "happy dis patch” now hang themselves. Out of 8.000 suicides in Japan last year only twenty resorted to the use of the pis tol. A Tacoma man killed his doctor be cause he said his patient was not sick, bnt the majority of practitioners arc tolerably safe from violence p r?T*p**4 by the delivery of such opinions THE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE. NO RADICAL ACTION TOWARD SPAIN. Cleveland Thinks Autonomy Should be Granted Cuba-—Turkish Claim* Will Be Pußhe<J-—Recommends That the Government Go Out of the Banking Business—Still Mas Faith in the Wilson Law—Strongly Opposed to Trusts. Washington, D. C\, Doc. 7,-Following is the message of President Cleveland read to congress at noon today: "To the Congress of the I’nlted States: “As representatives of the people in tl»o legislative branch of tlieir government you have assembled at a time when the strength and excelleuece of our free in stitutions and the capacity of <*ur citizens to enjoy popular rule has been again made manifest. A jKtlitical contest In volving monientotiM consequences, fraught with feverish apprehension, and creating an aggressivem ss so Intense as to ap proach bitterness'and passion, has been waged throughout our land, and deter mined by the decree of free and Independ ent suffrage, without disturbance of our tranquility or tin* least sign of weakness in our national structure. “When we consider these Incidents and contemplate the peaceful obedience and manly submission which have succeeded a heated clash of jiolitical opinions, we discover .abundant evidence of a deter mination on the part of our countrymen to abide by every verdict of the popular will, and to be controlled at all times by an abiding faith in the agencies estab- j lisbed for the direction of the affairs of ; their government. Thus our people ex hibit a patriotic dhqiosition, which entitles them to demand of those who undertake to make and execute their laws such faith ful and unselfish service in their behalf as can only be prompted by serious ap preciations of the trust and confidence which the acceptance of public duty in vited. "In obedience to a constitutional require ment. I hereby submit to the Congress certain information concerning national affairs with the suggestion of such legisla tion as in my judgment is necessary and expedient. To secure brevity and avoid tiresome narration 1 shall omit many de tails concerning matters within federal control, which by no means unimi>ortunt are more profitably discussed in depart mental rejHirts. I shall also further cur tail tills communication by omitting a minute recital of any minor incidents connected with our foreign relations which have heretofore foumi a place in executive messages, but are now contain ed in a report of the secretary of state which Is herewith submitted. Condition* In Turkey. “At the outset in reference to the more InifNirtant matters affecting our relations with foreign I lowers, it would afford me satisfaction if I could assure the Con gress that the disturbed condition in Asiatic Turkey had during the past year assumed a less hideous and bloody as l>ect and that either as a consequence of the awakening of the Turkish govern ment to the demand of humane civiliza tion or as the result of a decisive action on the part of the groat nations hnvin*r the right by treaty to Interfere for the protection of those excised to the rage of mad bigotry and cruel fanaticism, the shocking features of the situation at least had been mitigated. “Instead, however, of welcoming a soft ened disposition or protective interven tion, we have liecn atllicted by continued and not (infrequent reports of the wan ton destruction of homes and the bloody butchers of men. women and children, made martyrs to their profession of Christian faith. While none of our citi zens iii Turkey have thus far been killed or wounded, though often in the midst of dreadful scenes of danger, safety in the future is by no means assured. Our gov ernment at home and our minister at Constantinople have left nothing undone to protect our missionaries in Ottoman territory, who constitute nearly all the in dividuals residing there who have a rlgli. to claim our protection on the score of American citizenship. “Our efforts in tills direction will not lie relaxed, but the deep feeling and sympathy that have been aroused among our people-ought not to so far blind their reason and judgment as to lend them to demand impossible things. The outbreaks of blind fury which lend to murder and pillage In Turkey occur suddenly and without notice, and an attempt on our part to force such n hostile presence there as might Ik? effective for prevention or protection would not only be resisted by the Ottoman government, but would Ik? regarded as an Interruption of tlieir plans by the great nations who assert their decisive right to intervene In their own time and method for the security of life and property in Turkey. “Several naval vessels are station**! in tin? Mediterranean as a measure of caution nml to furnish nil p«>ssible re lief and refuge In case of emergency. We have made claims against the Turk ish government for the pillage ami de struction of missionary prpperty at Harpoot and Mnmsh during' uprisings at these places. Thus far the validity of these demands has not*lK?en admit ted, though our minister, prior to such outrages ami in anticipation of danger, demanded protection for the persons and property of our missionary citi zens in the localities mentioned, and. notwithstanding that strong evidence exists of actual complicity of Turkish soldiers in the work of destruction and robbery, the facts as they now appear do not permit us to doubt the justice of these claims, and nothing will is? omit ted to bring about tlieir prompt settle ment. "A number of Armenian refugees having arrived at our port*, and order has lately been obtained from the Turkish goverrment permitting the wives and children of such refugees to join them here. It Is IioikmI that here after no olwtaclf will Ik* interimsed to I»re vent the escape of nil those? who seek to avoid the jktIIs which threaten them in Turkish dominions. “Onr recently appointed consul to Krzemom is at liis post and discharg ing the duties of office, though for some unaccountable reason his formal exequator from the sultan has not lieen Issued. I don't believe the som ber present prospect In Turkey will lie King permitted to offend the sight of Chrl«temlofn. It «o mars the humane and enlighten**! civilization that lie long* to the clone of the nineteenth century that It seems hardly possible that the earnest demand of good people throughout the Christian world for its corrective treatment will remain un answered. Tin* Cuban Question. “The Insurrection In Cuba still con tinues with nil its perplexities. It is difficult to perceive that nay progress has thus far beeu made towards the pacification of the island, or that the situation <»f affairs as depicted In my last animal message has In the least improved. If Spain still holds Ha vana and the sea ports and all the con siderable towns, the insurgent* still roam at will over at least two-thlr*ls of the inland country. If tin* determina tion of Spain to put down the Insurrec tions seems but t<» strengthen with the laps*? of time, and Is evinced l«r tier tih hesitntlng devotion of largely increased military and naval forces to the task, there is much reason to believe that the insurgents have gained In point of numbers and character aid resources and are none the less infloxlhle in tlieir resolve not to succumb without practi cally securing the great object for which they took up nrmi. If Spain has not yet re-established her authority, neither have the insirgents yet made good their title to be regarded a* an In dependent state. Indeed, as the con test has gone on, the pretense that civil government exists on the island, except so far as Spain is able to main tain It, has been practically abandoned. Spain does keep on f*ot such a gov ernment, more or less Imperfectly, in the large towns and their immediate suburbs. Hut, that exception being made, the entire country Is either given over to anarchy or k subject to the military occupation of one or the other party. It is reported, indeed, on reli able authority, that nt the demand of the cotnmnnder-lnchkf of the Insur gent army, the putative Cuban govern ment has now given up all attempt to exercise its functions, leaving that government confessedly (what there is the best reason for sipposing It always to have been in fad) a government merely on paper. Were the Spanish armies aide to meet their antagonists in tin? open or in pitched 1 tattle prompt and decisive results might be looked for. and the immense superiority of the Spanish forces In nuaihers, discipline ami equipment, could lardly fail to tell greatly to their advantage. “But they are called apon to face a foe that shuns general engagements, that can choose and dots choose Its own ground, that from the nature of the country Is visible or invisible nt pleasure, and that fights only from am buscade and when all the advantages of position and numbers are on\ Its side. In —n |«, in dispensable to life In the way of food, clothing nml shelter is so easily ob tainable. esiK*clally by those born and bred on tin* soli, it is obvious that tit?re is hardly a limit to the time during which hostilities of this sort may be prolonged. Meanwhile In all eases of protract<*1 civil strife, the passions of the combatants grow more lnflaiied nml excess*** on both sides become more frequent and more deplorable. ‘They are also participated in by hands of marauders who now In the name of one party and now in the name of the other ns may best »uit the occasion, harms* tin* country nt will and plunder the wretched inhab itants for tlieir own advantage, tfich a condition of things would inevitably entail immense destruction of pro;»er ty even if it were the policy of loth parties to prevent it as far as prseti cnble. Hut while such seemed to be tin* original policy of the Spanish pov erument It has now apparently been abandoned by it and is acting upon tlie same theory as the insurgents, name ly. the exigencies of the contest re quire the wholesale annihilation of property that it may not prove of any use and advantage to tire enemy. It is to the same end that in pursuance of general orders, tin* Spanish garri sons are now Indng withdrawn from plantations and the rural population required to concentrate itself in the towns. The sure result would seem to Ik* that the Industrial value of the Island is fast diminishing, and that un less there is a speedy# and radical change iu existing circumstances it will soon disappear altogether. That value consists largely, of course, In its capacity to produce sugar, a capac ity already much reduced by the inters ruption to tillage, which has taken place during the Inst two years. It is reliably asserted that should these In terruptions continue during the cur rent year, aud practically extend, us Is now threatened, to the entire sugar producing territory of the island, so much time and so much money will Ik* required to restore the land to Its normal productiveness that it Is ex tremely doubtful if capital can be In duced even to make the attempt. The spectacle of the utter ruin of an ad joining country, by nature one of the most fertile aud charming on the whole globe, would engage the serious attention of the government and the people of the I'nited States In any circumstances. In point of fact, they have a concern with It which la by no means of a wholly sentimental or phi lanthropic character. It lies so near to us as to Ik? hardly separated from our territory. “Onr actual pecuniary interest in It i* second only to that of the [n-ople and government of Spain. It is reasonably estimated that at least from $30,000,000 to $30,000,000 of American capital are In vested in plantations and in raltraads, mining and oilier business enterprises on the island. The volnine of trade between the Unlt»*d States and Cnba. which in 1880 amounted to about fOl.tmo.OOO. rose in 1803 to about $103,000,000, and in 182M. the year before the present tasur recrion broke our. amount'd to nearly $2(0.000.000. Besides this large pH —Isry stake in the fortunes of Cuba, tbs United States fin,i itself inextricably involved in the ••resent contest in o;ber ways* both vexatious ami costly. “Many Cubans reside in this country and indirectly promote the insurrection ] through the preaa, by public meeting*, by ] toe purchase and shipment of arm* by < toe raising of funds, and by other means, i which the spirit of our institutions and : the tenor of our laws da not permit to : be made the subject of criminal prosecu tions. Some of them, though Cubans at heart and In all their feelings and in terests, have taken out papers as nat- ■ urn Used citizens of the United States, a : proceeding restored to with a view to pos sible protection by this government and not unnaturally regarded with much in dignation by the country of their origin. The Insurgents are undoubtedly encour aged and supported by the widespread sympathy the people of this country al ways and instinctively feel for every straggle for better and freer government and which In the case of the more ad venturous and restless elements of our population leads only In too many in stances to active and personal participa tion In the contest. “The result is that this government is constantly called upon to protect Ameri can citizens, to claim damages for in juries to persons and property now estim ated at many millions of dollars and to ask explanation* and apologies for the acts of Spanish officials whose zeal for the repression of rebellion sometimes blinds them to the Immunities belonging to the unoffending citizen of a friendly power. It follow** from the same causes that the United States is compelled to act ively police a long line of sea coast against unlawful expeditions, the escape of which the utmost vigilance will not al ways suffice to prevent. These Inevit able entanglements of the United States with the rebellion In Cuba, the large American jtroiterty interests affected and considerations of philanthropy and hu manity in general have led to a vehement demand in various quarters for some sort of positive intervention on the part of the United States. “It was at first proposed that belliger ent rights should be accorded the insur gents—a proiiosltion no longer weighed because untimely and in practical opera tion clearly perilous nnd injurious to our own Interests. It lias since been and is now sometimes contended that the Inde pendence of the Insurgents should be recognized. But Imperfect and restricted os the Spanish government of the island, may be, no other exist there—unless the will of the military officer in temporary command of a particular district can be dignified as a species of government. It is now also suggested that the United States should buy the island—a sugges tion possibl}’ worthy of consideration If there was any evidence of a desire or will ingness on the part of Spain to entertain such a proposal. It is urged, finally, that all other methods failing, tjje existing internecine strife in Cuba should be ter minated by our intervention even at the cost of a war between the United States nnd Spain—a war which its advocates confidently prophecy could be neither large in its porportions nor doubtful In its issue. ‘The correctness of this forecast need be neither affirmed nor denied. The United States has nevertheless a character to maintain as a nation, which plainly dic tates that right and not might should be the rule of Its conduct.” The president nt this point goes on at some length to comment upon our friend ship for Spain and on the qualities of that nation. “It would seem that if Spain should offer to Cuba genuine autonomy—a meas ure of home rule which, while preserving the sovereignty of Spain, would satisfy an rational requirement of her Spanish subjects—there should be no just reason why the pacification of the Island might not lx* effected on that bask*. Such a re sult would appear to be in the true Inter est of all concerned. It would at once stop the conflict which Is now consuming the resources of the Island, and making It worthless for whichever party may ultim ately prevail. It would keep intact the possessions of Spain without touching her honor, which wifi be consulted rather titan Impugned by the adequate redress of ad mitted grievances. “It would put the prosperity of the Is land and the fortunes of its inhabitants within their own control, without sever ing the natural and ancient ties which bind them to tlie mother country, and would yet enable them to test their ca pacity for self-government under the most . favorable <*onditfons. It has been object . ed on the one side that Spain w’ould not . promise autonomy until her insurgent i subjects lay down their arms; on the . other side, the promised autonomy, how . ever liberal, is insufficient because with . out assurance of the promise being ful ■ filled. “But the reasonableness of the re t qulrement by Spain of the nncondl . tional surrender on the part of the In . surgent Cubans before their nuton , omy is conceded is not altogether i apparent. It ignores Important fea » tures of the situation—the stability i two years’ duration has given to the > Insurrection; the feasibility of Its In . definite prolongation iu the nature of I things and ns shown by past experi t ence; the utter and imminent rain of l the island unless the present strife Is i speedily composed; above all, the rank . abuses which nil parties in Spain, all l branches of her government, and all i her leading public men concede to ex i Ist and profess a desire to remove. Facing such circumstances to wltb * hold the proffer of needed reforms un i til the parties demanding them to put r themselves at mercy by laying down > their arms has the appearance of ne -1 glecting the gravest perils and lnvlt » ing suspicion as to the sincerity of - any professed willingness to grant re forms. The objection on behalf of ? the insurgents—that promised reforms - cannot be relied upon—must of course » Ik? considered, though we have no ? right to assume and no reason for as i suming that anything Spain undere ? takes to do for the relief of Cnba will r not Ik* done according to both the splr r It and the letter of the undertaking. > “Nevertheless, realizing that snspl - cions and precautions on the part of r the weaker of the two combatants are i always natural and not always unjusti fiable—being sincerely desirous in the * interest of both as well as on its own 1 account that the Caban problem r should be solved with the least possi ) Me delay—lt was intimated by this * government to the government of i. Spain some months ago that if satls ? factory measure of home rale were ? tender**! the Caban Insurgents and ? would be accepted by them upon a p guarantee of its execution, the United ® ed States would endeavor to find a way not objectionable to Spain of fnr r Dishing such a guaranty. r “While no definite response to this I intimation has yet been received from * the Spanish government, it is believed 1 to be not altogether unwelcome, while as already suggested, no reason la f perceived why it should not be ap prored b r the inmirgenli Neither party can fall to see the Inqprtance of •lily action and both most itaiize that to prolong the present ■tali! of thing* for even ■ abort period wlllj»dd enor nv»n«iy to the time and lal*>r and ex wndlture necessary to bring ndnstrial recuperation of thfe island. It la therefore evidently boifcd on ail grounds that earnest effort* for heal ing the breach between Spain and the Insurgent Cabans upon the lines above indicated may at once be liaugurated and pushed to an immediate and suc cessful Issue. The friendly offices or the United States either in the man ner above outlined or in any other way conslatent with our constitution and laws will always be at the disposal of either party. “Whatever circumstances may arise, onr policy and our interest would con strain us to object to the acquisition of the Island or an interference with its control by any other power. “It should be added that it cannot be reasonably assumed that the hitherto expectant attitude of the United State* will be indefinitely maintained. .While we are anxious to accord all due re spect to the sovereignty of Spain, we cannot view the pending conflict in all its feature* aDd properly apprehend our Inevitably close relations to it and its possible results without considering that by the course of events we may be drawn into such an unusual and un precedented condition ns will fix a limit to our patient waiting for Spain to end the contest, either alone and In her own way, or with our frendly co-opera tion. “When the inability of Spain to deal successfully with the Insurgents has become manifest, and It Is demonstrat ed that her sovereignty Is extinct In Cuba, for all the purposes of Its right ful existence and when a hopeless struggle for Its re-establishment has degenerated Into n strife which means nothing more than the useless sacrifice of human life and the utter destruction of the very subject matter of the con flict, a situation will be presented In which our obligations to the sovereign ty of Spain will be superceded by higher obligations, which we can hard ly hesitate to recognize and discharge. “Deferring choice of ways and meth ods until the time for action arrives, we st juld make them depend upon the precise conditions then existing; nml they should not be determined upon without giving careful heed to every consideration. Involving our honor nml interest, or the international duty we owe to Spain. Until we face the con tingencies suggested, or the situation is by other Incidents imperatively changed, we should continue in the line of conduct heretofore pursued, thus in all circumstances exhibiting our obe dience to the requirements of public law and our regard for the duty en joined upon us by the position we oc cupy In the family of nations. “A contemplation of emergencies that may arise should plainly lead us to avoid their creation either through n careless disregard of present duty or even an undue stimulation and ill timed expression of feeling. But 1 have deemed it not amiss to remind the Congress that a time rtiay arrive when a correct policy and care for our Inter ests as well as a regard for the Inter ests of other nations and their citizens, joined by considerations of humanity and a desire to see a rich aud fertile country, intimately related to us. saved from complete devastation, will con strain our government to such action as will subserve the Interest thus in volved and at the same time promise to Cnba and Its inhabitants nn oppor tunity to enjoy the blessings of peace. Th® Venezuelan Question. "The Venezuelan boundary question has ceased to be a matter of difference between Great Britain and the United States, their respective government* having agreed upon the substantial provisions of a treaty between Great Britain and Venezuela, submitting the whole controversy to arbitration. The provisions of the treaty are so emi nently just and fair that the assent of Venezuela thereto may confidently be anticipated. An Arbitration Treaty, “Negotiations for a treaty of general ar bitration for all differences between Great Britain aud the United States are far advanced and promise to reach a suc cessful consummation at an early date.” Department Report* Discussed. President Cleveland then goes on at length to quote from the reports of the various departments and comments brief ly upon them. In speaking of the postoffice department he criticises the law which allows adver tising sheets, serial libraries, etc., to be carried at second class rates, and ad vises closer inspection of the carrier ser vice. Greater care is urged in the disposal of public lands. Concerning the Indian bur eau he says: “I Indorse the recommendation made by the present secretary of the Interior as well as his predecessor, that a permanent commission consisting of three members, one of whom shall be an army officer, be created to perform the duties now devolv ing upon the commissioner and assistant commissioner of Indian'affairs. The man agement of the bureau involves such num erous and diverse details and the advant ages of an uninterrupted policy are so ap parent that I hope the change suggested ; will meet the approval of Congress.” In speaking of the pension roll the president denounces the abuses that have been allowed to creep into tbe administra tion of the work of the bureau. He ex presses tbe opinion that unless Congress acts speedily in relation to the Pacific railroads, the executive will be obliged to enforce tbe claims of the government when further obligations mature next March. He recommends the discontinu ance of seed distribution. It is recom mended that the fourth-class postmasters be Included under the civil service law. Concerning tbe Wilson tariff law the president reiterates his former opinion that the deficit under tbe law was due chiefly to the unsettled political situation, and expresses the belief that “onr pres 1 ent tariff law If allowed a fair opportun ity, will in the near future yield a rev enue which, with reasonably economical .expenditures will overcome all deficien cies. “In the meantffbe,” he goes on to say, ‘*00 deficit that has occurred or may occur need excite or disturb us. j .“It hi immeasurably better to appropri > ate onr surplus to tbe payment of just ill i able expenses than to allow U to become an invitation to reckless appropriations and extravagant expenditure*.
