Favored in a Special Message to Congress by President Cleveland. Long Term Bonds, DrawingThree Per Cant, Should Be Issued to Cover All Reserve Demands. WASHINGTO.V, Jan. 28.—The president sent to both houses of congress Monday a message on the financial situation, substantially withdrawing his support from the plan outlined in the Carlisle bill, and outlining- the only policy which seems to him now possible to maintain the gold reserve. Following is the main portion of the message: TIKI Mf!fMll£<>. In thoopenlng of the message the president refers to bis recommendations on the currency question to congress in his nnuual message and their unfiivoriiblo reception, the changed con- "ition of affairs and tho present ex- coscernins. tno .extent to which silver ouijbt to be ooined or/used in our currency should interfere 1 with the counsel* of those whose duty it Is to.-rectify cvlJs cow apparent IB our llnaii'cial situation. They have to consider the Question of national credit And tho consequences that will, follow from iu collapse. While I am not unfriendly to silver and while I desire toj>ee it recognized to such an extent as Is consistent with. tinancUl safety and the preservation of national honor and credit, I am not willing to sec gold entirely banished from our currency and finances. To avert such a consequence 1 believe thorough and radical remedial legislation should be promptly passed. I therefore beg the congress to give the subject Immediate attention, • • ': . -,- tVwnts More Bnnda Isnued. In my opinion the secretary of the treasury ihould be authorised to issue bonds of the utuinttuhliig a sufficient gold reserve and the redemption and cancellation of the United States legal-tender notes and the treasury notes issued for the purchase of silver under the Inwof July H, 1800 relieved from the humiliating process of issii Inc bonds to procure gold to be Immediately and repouu'diy dnnvn out ou theso obligations for purposes not related to the beaollt of our govrnimcni or our peoplo. The principal and luterest of these bonds should be payable on their faro in sold, bn WITHIN OUfi BORDERS. Telegrams from Towns and in Indiana.

The secretary o] tin 1 treasury might well bo permitted at his discretion to receive on tlie salo of bouds tho lejrul tender anil treasury notes to be retired mid of course when they are thus retired or redeemed In gold they should bo canceled. These bonds, under existing luws. could - bo deposited by national banks as security for circulation, and such banks should bo allowed to Issue circul.-itlon up to the face value of these or any other bonds so deposited, except bonds outstanding bearing only 2 per cent. Interest, nnd which sell In the maritet at less than par. National b;inlts should not be allowed to take out circulating notes of a less denomination than $10, and when such as nru now outstanding reach tho treasury, except for redemption anil retirement, they should bo canceled and notes or the denomination O f $10 nnd upward issued In their siead. Silver ccr- tillciites of the denomination of «!0 aud up- wan', should bo replaced by certificates of denominations under $10. As a constant meany for tho maintenance of a reasonable supply of gold In tho treasury our duties on Imports should be p.ildlngold, allowing all other duos to the government to be paid in any other form of money.

Sh*. lay for three mouths without taking any heed of what w:^ giving on about her. She took a decided change for the worse Monday, and is now in a sadly demented condition without any hopes of recovery.

The progress of a people whoso Internal resources nro so limited and energies so vigorousshouldnot,bo checked by "a false Unanchil policy and heedless disregard of sound monetary la,ws." The president then emphasi/.es the duty of our lawmakers, ''untrammelled by the prejudice of partisanship," to "sincerely attempt to relieve the situation." JUitii to Luck of Confidence. The real trouble which confronts us consists In a lack of confidence widespread and con tilaruiy Increasing In the continuing ability o: disposition o the government to pay Its ob JlfutioQS In gold. This lack of contldeuce grows to sonic extent out of the palpable and apparent embarrassment attending the efforts of the £overninent under existing laws to procure gold and to a greater extent out o: tbu impossibility of either keeping it in the treasury or canceling obligations by its expenditure after it is obtained. The only way left opua to tho government for procuring gold is by tho issue and salo of bonds. The only bonds- that can be issued wore authorized nearly twenty-five years ago and are not well calculated to meet our present needy. Among other dig- advantages, they are made payable In coin inste.id or specillcally In gold, which, In eilstlng conditions, detracts largely and In an increasing ratio from their desirability as investments. It is by no means certain that bonds of this doscrlptloncan much longer be disposed of at a price creditable to the financial character of our government. A Mottt Duufferoua Feature. Tho most dangerous and Irritating feature of the situation, however, remains to be mentioned. It Is found in tho m?nn.s Dy which the treasury is despoiled or the gold thus obtained without canceling a single government obligation and solely for the benefit of those who flnd profit in shipping It abroad or whose fears induce them to hoard It at tome. Wo have outstanding about $3!>J.O<X).000 of currency notes of the government, for *h!ch gold ra»7 be demanded, and curiously enough the law require* that when presented and. in fact, redeemed and paid in gold they •hall bo reissued. Thus the same notes may do duty many times in drawing gold from the treasury, nor can the process be arrested as long as private parties profit or otherwise see an advantage In repeating the operation. lixdeomed Hut Nut Retired, More than $300,000.003 in these notes have already been redeemed In gold and notwithstanding such redemption they are all Btlll outstanding. Since tho 17th day of January, ISM, our bonded Interest-bearing; debt has been Increased SiOO.OOO.OOo for the por- pose of obtaining gold, to replenish our coin reserve. Two issues were made, amounting to 850,000,003 each—one In January and tho other in November. As a result of the first Issue there was realized something more than 168.000,000 in gold. Between that Issue and tho •uCL-eoding 0:10 in November, comprising a period of about ten months, nearly 4103.000,000 In gold was drawn from tho treasury. This made the second Issue necessary, and upon that more than £56,000 030 In gold waa aguln realized. Between the date of thU second issue and tho present time, cover- Ing a period of only about two months, more than $60.000,000 In gold baa been drawn from tho treasury These large sums of gold were expended without any cancellation of government obligations or in any permanent way boncflting people or Improving our pecuniary situation. The Hnnnctal events of tho last year suggest facts and conditions which should certainly arrest attention. More than $172,OoO,003in gold has been drawn ou» of the treasury during the year for the purpose of shipping abroad or hoarding at home. While nearly 8103,000.000 of the same was drown out during the first ten months of the year, Kouml ttio Murderer IUKHIIV. KOKOSIO, hid., Jan. 23.—Tho ITorac* Loomis murder trinl has come to an end. Loomis was accused of assassinating his cousin, James Gregory,-on the night, of Au-ust 31, 1SU4, while, the lat> tor was nt the sick bed of the prisoner'* aged mother administering a dose oj medicine.

Disappearance Accouatml For. FORT WAYNE, Ind., Jan. 28.—Twenty; five years ago John Cortrey, a prosper; us and well known Fort Wayno citl- en, suddenly disappeared. He had been employed by the Wabash railroad, and no motive could be attributed fojf his unaccountable absence. Recently tho mystery was solved by the receipt of a letter by C. L. Schrader. of Broadway, stating that Cortrey had just died at Pilot Point, Tex., of pneumonia, and had been buried by the county. Hi* family are still living in Fort Waynej Counterfeiter* Loeatod.

Judging from the experience of tho last year, the more expensive they will become. In conclusion. I desire to frankly confess my reluctance to Issuing more bonds In present circumstance* and with no better results than.have lately followed that course. I cannot, however, refrain from adding to an assurance of my anxiety to cooperate with the present congress in any reasonable measure of relief an expression of my determination, to leave nothing undone which furnishes a hope of improving tho situation or chocking a suspicion of our disinclination or Inability to meet with the strictest honor every national obligation.

Simple Frocntl of Looting. The obligations upon which this gold has I been drawn from the treasury are still outstanding and are available for use In repeat Ing the exhausting operation with shorte Intervals as our perplexities accumulate. Two more bodies of negroes, supposed •o have been drowned in the wreck of he steamer State of Missouri, hart be«n recovered near Wolf Creek, Ky. to make the .bonds which may be issued to replenish our gold less useful for that purpose. An adequate gold reserve Is In all circumstances absolutely essential to the upholding of our public credit and to the maintenance of our high national character. Our gold reserve has agiUn reached such a stage of diminution as to require its speedy reinforcement. The aggravations that must inevitably follow present conditions and method-s will certaicly lead to misfortune and loss not only to our national credit and prosperity and., to financial enterprise, but to those of our people who seek employment as a means of livelihood and to those whose only capital U th«ir dally labor. It will hardly do to say that a simple Increase of revenue will cure onr troubles. I The apprehension now existing and constantly increasing as to our Unanclil ability ! does not rest upon a calculation of our rev- I enue.

PAKIB, Jan. 88. — President Faure's message was read in the senate and chamber of deputies Monday, in the former body by M. Trarieux, the new minister of justice, and in the chamber by Premier Ribot. The president says: "By raising me to the first office of the re- I public, this notional asxmbly chose for this j high function one of the humblest servants of the country. I should Imperfectly express tha profound gratitude which 1 feel if J did not attribute my entire honor to the laborious democracy, to which I belong." The president proceeded to declare that he will always endeavor to maintain order and unite alJ of the people for the good of the country, being animated by that love for peace through which France Is acquiring the sympathies of the world- The message concludes with an allusion to the exposition to be held in 1900.
