BakTmC POWDER Absolutely Pure. Celebrated for Its creat leaveiiinp strength and aaltbfulnc(i(i. Astute* the food against alum and all forma of Adulteration common to the tifacap brands. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., New York. IT IS NOW A LAW Senate Adopts the Conference Report on the Tariff Bill, 40 to 30. Bill Immediately Signed by Pre siding Officers and President McKinley. Resolution Authorizing a Cur rency Commission Passed by the House. WASHINGTON, July 2(5.—'The senate at v3 p. m. adopted the conference report on the tariff bill by a vote of 40 to 30, thus ending another memorable chapter in tariff legislation. As soon as the vote had baen announced the president's ex ecutive clerk appeared and presented a yiessage to congress recommending the appointment of a currency commission. The bill was sipned by the presiding officers of the two houses at once, the Signature of Speaker Reed being affixed tit 3:31. It was then sent to the presi dent and his signature affixed at 4:07. The committee on rules of the house then brought in a rule for the considera tion of the Stone currency commission bill and a resolution for adjournment at 9 p. m., both of which were adopted. THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. Document Sent to Congress Just Before Adjournment. WASHINGTON, July 2.—The message which the president sent to congress just before adjournment was as follows: To the Congress of the United States: In my message convening the con gress in extraordinary session, I called attention to a single subject—that of providing revenue adequate to meet the reasonable and proper expenses of the government. I believed that to be the most pressing subject for settlement then. A bill to provide the necessary revenues for the government has already passed the house of representatives and the senate, and awaits executive action Another question of very great impor tanoe is that of the establishment of our currency and banking system on a bet ter basis, which I commented upon in my inauguration address in the follow ing words: "Our financial system needs some re vision our money is all good, but its value must not further be threatened. It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor its stability to doubt or dispute. The sev eral forms of our paper money offer, in my judgment, a constant, emburrass meiit to the government and imperil a safe balance in the treasury." Nothing was settled more clearly at the late national election than the deter munition upon the part of the people to keep their currency stable in value and equal to that of the most advanced na tions of the world. The soundness of currency is no where questioned. No loss can occur to its holders. It is the system which should be simplified and strengthened, y keeping our money just as good as it now is, with less expense to the govern xnent and the people. The sentiment of the country is strongly in favor of early action by con gress in this direction, to revive our currency laws and remove them from partisan contention. A notable assem bly of business men with delegates from 29 states and territories was held at Indianapolis in January of this year The financial situation commanded their earnest attention and after a two days' session the convention recom mended to congress the appointment of a monetary commission. I commend this report to the consid eration of cougress. The authors of the report recommend a commis sion "to make a thorough in vestigation of the monetary affairs and needs of this convention, in all re lations and aspects and to make proper suggestions as to any evils found to exist, and the remedies therefor." This subject should receive the atten tion of congress at the special session. It ought not to be postponed until the regular session. I therefore urgently recommend that a special commission be created, non partisan in its character, to be composed of well-informed citizens of different parties who will command the con fidence of congress, and the country because of their special fitness for the work, whose duty it shall be to make recommendations of whatever changes in our present banking and currency laws may be found necessary, and ex pedient, and to report their conclusions on or before the first day of November next, in order that the same may be transmitted to congress for its consider ation at its first regular session. It is to be hoped that the report thus made will be so comprehensive and sound as to receive the support of all parties and the favorable action of con gress. At all events, such a report can not fail to be of value to the executive branch of the government, as well as to those charged with public legislation, and to greatly assist in the establish ment of an improved system of finance.

INTEMPERANCE OP SOCIETY. flad Commentary on Cinlit!onM During the Season in London.
