Their meeting occurs under felicitous conditions, justifying sincere congratulation and calling for our grateful acknowledgement to a beneficient Providence •which has so signally blessed and prospered us as a nation. Peace and good •will with all the nations of the earth continue unbroken. A matter of genuine satisfaction is the growing feeling of fraternal regard and unification of all sections of our country, the incompleteness of which has too long delayed realization of the highest blessings of the Union. The spirit of patriotism is universal and is ever increasing in fervor. The public questions which now most engross us are lifted far above either partisanship, prejudice or former sectional differences. They affect every part of our common country alike, and permit of no division on ancient lines. Questions of foreign policy, of revenue, the soundness of the currency, the inviolability of national obligations, the Improvement of the public service, appeal to the Individual conscience of every earnest citizen, to whatever party he belongs or In whatever section of the country he rna.y reside. The extra session of this congress, which closed during July last, enacted important legislation, and while its full effect has not yet been realized, what it has already accomplished assures us of its timeliness and wisdom. To test its permanent value further time will be required, and the people, satisfied with its operation and results thus far, are in no mind to withhold from It a fair trial. CURRENCY THE MAIN QUESTION. is had and the policy of selling is to be continued, then congress mrould give the secretary of the treasury authority to sell bonds at long or short periods bearing a less rate of interest than is now authorized by law. I earnestly recommend, as soon as the receipts of the government are quite sufficient to pay all the exepenses of the government, that when any of the United States notes are presented for redemption In gold and are redeemed in gold such notes shall be kept and set apart, and only paid out in exchange for gold. This is an obvious duty. If the holder of the United States note prefers the gold and gets it from the It was not civilized warfare. It was ! ej-pnessssns oi! the sentiment of the extermination. Against this abuse of , islatJvebranch it behooves the executive the rights of war I have felt constrained | to soberly consider the conditions under whinh so important a measure must neecls rest for justification. It is to be seriously considered whether the Cuban insun-ection possesses beyond dispute the attributes of statehood which alone can demand the recognition of belligerency in its favor. Possession, in short, of the essential qualifications of sovereignty by the insurgents and the conduct of the war by them according to on repeated occasions to enter the firm and earnest protest of this government. * * « I felt it my first duty to make in^'int demand for the release or speedy trial of all American citizens under arrest. The instructions given to our m.nister to Sp;un before his departure for his post directed him to impress upon that government the sincere wish of the United States to lend its aid toward the ending of the war in Cuba by reaching a peaceful and M ^ __. _ lasting result, just and honorable alike government he should 'not receive back j to Spain and to the Cuban people, from a United States note without pay- [Those instructions recited the character ing- gold in exchange for it.

Surely it should not pay them out again except .in demand and for gold. If they are put out in any other way they may return again to be followed by another bond issue to redeem them—another interest-bearing debt to redeem a non- Interest bearing debt. In my view it is of the utmost importance that the government should be relieved from the burden of providing all the gold required for exchanges and export. This responsibility is alone borne by the government without any of the usual and necessary banking powers to help Itself. The banks do not feel the strain of gold redemption. The whole strain rests upon the government, and the size of the gold reserve in the treasury has come to be, with or without reason, the signal of danger or of security. This ought to be stopped. If we are to have an era of prosperity in the country with sufficient receipts for ests. and the injury resulting from an indefinite continuance of this state of things.

Attention to What %V e Hav« Don and What Is To lie Done. Tariff legislation having been settle by the extra session of congress th question next pressing for consideration is that of the currency. The work of putting our finances up on a sound basis, difficult as it mas seem, will appear easier when we recal the finacial operations of the govern ment since I860. [The president then gives a review of the financial operatior of the government since the war.] The brief review of what was accomplishet from the close of the war to 1S93 make: unreasonable and groundless any dis trust either of our financial ability o soundness; while the situation fron 1893 to 1897 must admonish congress o the immediate necessity of so legislat ing as to make the return of the condi tions then prevailing impossible. There are many plans proposed ;is a reined} for the evil. Before we can find the true remedy we must appreciate the real evil. It is not that our currency o every kind is not good, for every dollar of it is good: good because the government's pledge will not be broken. However, the guaranty of our purpose to keep the pledge will be best shown b> advancing towards its- fulfillment. Theevll of the present system is founc In the great cost to the government of maintaining the parity of our dift'eren forms of money; that is, keeping all of them at par with gold. \\"e surely cannot longer be heedless of the burden this imposes upon the people even under fairly prosperous conditions, while the past four years have demonstrated that it is not only an expensive charge upon the government but a dangerous jpenace of the national credit. It is manifest that we must devise some plan to protect the government against bond issues for repeated redemptions. We must either curtail the opportunity for speculation, made easy by the multiplied redemptions of our demand obligations, or increase the gold reserve for their redemption. We have $900,000,000 of currency which the government by solemn enactment has undertaken to keep at par with gxild. Nobody is obliged to redeem in gold but the government. The banks are not required to redeem in gold. The government is obliged to keep equal with gold all its outstanding currency and gold obligations, while its receipts are not required to be paid in gold. They are paid in every kind of money but gold, and the only means by which the government can with certainty get gold is by borrowing. It can get it in no other way when it most needs it. The government without any fixed gold revenue is plei ged to maintain gold re demption. which it has steadily and faithfully done and which under the authority now given it will continue to do so. The law -which requires the government after having redeemed its United States notes to pay them out again as current funds demands a constant replenishment of the gold reserve. This Is especially so in times of business panic and when the revenues are insufficient to meet the expenses of the government. At such tims the government has no other way to supply its deficit and maintain redemption, but through the increase of its bonded debt, as during the administration of ray predecessor, when J262.315.400 of 4% per cent, bonds were issued and sold and the proceeds used to pay the expenses of the government in excess of the revenues and sustain the gold reserve. While It is true that the greater part of the proceeds of these bond? •were used to supply deficient revenues. a considerable portion was required to maintain th.- gold reserve. Without revenues equal to our expenses there •would bo no deficit requiring the is- nianc of bonds. But if the sold reserve falls below $100.000.000 how will it be replenished except by selling more bonds? Is there any other way practicable under existing law? 8EKIOCS N PKOPOU^DED. •hall TV« Continent th* Present Policy T— Recommendation as to Greenbacks. The serious question then is, shall we continue' the policy that has been pur- •ued in the past; that is, when the «old reserve reaches the point of dan- fir, issue more bonds and supply the gold, or shall we provide other to prevent these recurring drains reserve? If no further leg- outlined a plan in great detail for the j assassin, and although the cabinet of purpose of removing the threatened the late premier still held office and recurrence of a depleted gold reserve received from our envoy the proposals and saveus from future embarrassment! he bore that cabinet gave place within on that account. To this plan I invite j a few days thereafter to a new adminis- your careful consideration. I concur tration under the leadership of Sagasta. with the secretary of the treasury in his recommendation that national banks be allowed to issue notes to the fact \ T a!ue of the bonds which they have deposited for ciruculation, and that the tax on circulating notes secured by deposit of such bonds be reduced to one- half of 1 per cent, per annum. I also joinhim in reeommeiidingthatauthority be given for the establishment of national banks with a minimum capital of $25,000. This will enable the smaller villages and agricultural regions of the country to be supplied with currency to meet their needs. I recommend that the issue of national bank notes be restricted to the denomination of $10 and upwards. If the suggestions I have herein made shall have the approval of congress, then I would recommend that national banks be required to redeem gold. CONSIDERS TH13 CUBAN* PROBLEM. Tells the Story of the Island's Years of Unrest and Discontent. The most important problem with which this government is now called upon to deal pertaining to its foreign relations concerns its duty toward Spain and the Cuban insurrection. Problems and condition? more or less in common with those now existing have confronted this government at various times in the past. The story of Cuba for many years has been one of unrest; growing discontent; an effort toward a larger enjoyment of liberty and self-control; of organized resistance to the mother country; of depression after distress and warfare, and of ineffectual settlement to be followed by renewed revolt. For no enduring period =ince the enfranchisement of the continental possessions of Spain' in the western continent has the condition of Cuba or the policy of Spain toward Cuba not caused concern to the United States. The prospect from time to time that the weakness .of Spain's hold upon the island and the political vicissitudes and embarrassments of the home government might lead to the transfer of Cuba to a continental power called forth, between 1823 and 1S60, various emphatic declarations of the policy of the United States to permit no disturbance of Cuba's connection with Spain unless in the direction of independence or acquisition by us through purchase, nor has there been any change of this declared policy since upon the part of the government. The revolution which began in 1S6S lasted for ten years, despite the strenuous efforts of the successive peninsular governments to suppress it. Then as now the government of the United States testified its grave concern and offered its aid to put an end to bloodshed in Cuba. The overtures made by General Grant were refused and the war dragged on. entailing great loss of life and treasure and increased injury to American interests, besides throwing enhanced burdens of neutrality on the government. In 1STS peace was brought about by the truce of Zanjon. obtained by negotiations between the Spanish commander, Martinez de Campos, and the insurgent leaders. The present insurrection broke out in February. 1S93. It is not my purpose at this time to recall its remarkable increase or to characterize its tenacious resistance against the enormous forces massed against it by Spain. The revolt and the efforts to subdue it have carried destruction to every quarter of the island, developing wide proportions and defying the efforts of Spain for its suppression. The civilized code of war has been disregarded; no less so by i:he Spaniards than by the Cubans. The existing- conditions cannot but fill this government and the American people with the gravest apprehension. There is no desire on the part of our people to prof.t by the misfortunes of Spain. We have only the desire to see the Cubans prosperous and contented, enjoying that measure of self-control which is the inalienable right of man. protected in their right to reap the benefit of the exhaustless treasures of their country. CONCENTRATION- IS A FAILURE. Ackknowledges Our Interest and Outlines » 'Jfew Policy. The reply to our note was received on the 23d day of October. It is in the di- ra?tion of a better understanding. It appreciates the friendly purposes of this government. It admits that our country is deeply affected by the war in Cuba and that its desires for peace are just It declares that the present Spanish government is bound by every consideration to a change of policy that should satisfy the United States and pacify Cuba within a reasonable time. To this end Spain has decided to put into effect the polictical reforms heretofore advocated by the present premier, without halting for any consideration their notes in in the path which in its judgment leads to peace. The military operations, it is said, will continue, but will be humane and conducted with all regard for private rights, being accompanied by political action leading to the autonomy of Cuba while guarding Spanish sovereignty. This, it is claimed, will result in investing Cuba with a distinct personality; the island to be governed by an executive and by a local council or chamber, reserving to Spain the control of the foreign relations, the..army and navy and the judicial administration. To accomplish this the present government proposes to modify exist ing legislation by decrees, leaving the Spanish cortes, with the aid Of Cuban senators and deputies, to solve the economic problem and properly distribute the existing debt. In the absence of a declaration of the measures that this government proposes to take in carrying out its proffer of good offices it suggests that Spain be left free to conduct military operations and grant political reforms; while the United States, for its part, shall enforce its neutral obligations and cut off the assistance which it is asserted the insurgents receive from this country. The supposition of an indefinite prolongation of the war is denied. It is asserted that the western provinces are already well nigh reclaimed; that the planting of cane and tobacco therein has teen resumed, and that by force of arms and new and ample reforms very early and complete pacification is hoped for. The immediate amelioration of existing conditions under the new administration of Cuban affairs is predicted, and therewithal the disturbance and all occasion for any change of attitude on the part of the United States. Discussion of the question of the international duties and responsibilities of the United States as Spain understands them is presented with an apparent disposition to charge us with failure in this regard. This charge is without any basis in fact. It could not have been made if Spain had been cognizant of the constant efforts this government has made at the cost of millions and by the employment of the administrative machinery of the nation at command to perform its full duty according to the law of nations. That it has successfully prevented the departure of a single military expedition or armed vessel from our shores in violation of our laws would seem to be a sufficient answer. But of this aspect of the Spanish note it is not necessary to speak further now. Firm in the conviction of a wholly performed obligation, due response to this charge has '. been made in diplomatic course. I Throughout all these horrors and I dangers to our own peace this government has never broken over or in any way abrogated its sovereign prerogative of reserving to itself the determination of its policy and course according to its own high sense of right and in consonance with the dearest interests and convictions of our own people, should the prolongation of the war so demand. dition of belligerency as its motive. I announces a domestic law of neutralit in the declaring state. It assumes th international obligations of a neutral the presence of a public state of war It warns all citizens and others withi the jurisdiction of the proclaimant tha they violate those righteous obligation at their own peril, and cannot expec to be shielded from the consequences. The right of visit and search on th seas and seizures of vessels and car goes as contraband of war and goo< prize under admiralty law must unde international law be admitted as a le Eitimate consequence of a proclama tion of belligerency. While accordin the equal belligerent rights defined bj public law to each party in our ports disfavors would be imposed on botl which, while nominally equal, woul weigh heavily in behalf of Spain her self. Possessing a navy and controlling the ports of Cuba her maritime right! could be asserted not only for the mili tary investment of the island but up ti the margin of our own territorial wa. ters, and a condition Of things would exist for which the Cubans within the! own domain could not hope to creat' a parallel, while its creation through aid or sympathy from within our do main would be even more impossibli than now, with the additional obliga tions of international neutrality w would perforce assume. The enforcement of this enlarged and onerous code of neutrality would only be influential within our own jurisdiction by .land and sea and applicable by our own instrumentalities. It couh impart to the United States no jurisdiction between Spain and the Insurgents. It would give the United Slates no right of intervention to enforce the conduct of the strife within the paramount authority of Spain according- to the international code of war. Por these reasons I regard the recognition of the belligerency of the Cuban insurgents as now unwise and therefore inadmis- sable. Should that step hereafter be deemed wise as a measure of right and duty the executive will take it. AS TO HUMANITARIAN' GKOUXD. Was Xot Civilized "Warfare—Instructions Given to Minister IToodfonL The offer made by my predecessor in April, 1S96, tendering- the friendly offices of this government failed. Any media- Jon on our part was not accepted. In brief the answer said: "There is no effectual way to pacify Cuba unless it Mgins with the actual submission of the rebels to the mother country." Then only could Spain act in the premised direction of her own motion, ajid after her own plans. The cruel policy of concentration was initiated Feb. 16, 1S96. The productive districts controlled by :he Spanish armies were depopulated, e agricultural inhabitants were lerded in and about the g-arrison .owns, their lands laid waste and their d-w elllng* destroyed. This policy the late cabinet of Spain justified as a necessary measure of war and as a means of cutting off supplies from the insurgents. It ha* utterly failed a* & war measure. MEASURES AS YET UN-TRIED. Refers to Congressional Actions and Recognition of Cuban E«;llijrerency. Of the' untried measures there remain only: Recognition of the insurgents as belligerents; recognition of the independence of Cuba: neutral intervention to end the war by imposing a rational compromise between the insurgents, and intervention in favor of one or the other party. I speak not of forcible annexation, for that cannot be thought of. That by Our code of morality would be criminal aggression. Recognition of the belligerency of the Cuban insurgents has often been canvassed as a. possible if not inevitable step, both in regard to the previous ten years' struggle and during ;the present war. I am not unmindful that the two houses of congress in the spring- of 1S96 expressed the opinion by concurrent resolution that a condition of public war existed requiring or Justifying the recognition of the state of belligerency in Cuba, and during the extra session the senate voted a joint resolution of like import, which, however, •was not brought to si vote in the house of representatives. In the presence of these significant Reasons Advanced Why the United States Should Hold Its Hand. Intervention upon humanitarian g""ounds has been frequently suggested and has not failed to receive my :mos1 anxious and earnest consideration. But should such a step be now taken when it is apparent that a hopeful change lias supervened in the policy of Spain toward Cuba? A new government has taken office in the mother country. It is pledged in advance to the declaration that all the effort in the world cannot suffice to maintain peace in Cuba by the bayonet: that vague promises of reform after subjugation afford no solution of the insular problem; that with a substitution of commanders must come a change of the past system of warfare for one in harmony with a n-ew policy which shall no longer aim to drive the Cubans to the "horrible alternative of taking to the thicket or succumbing- in misery;" that reforms must be instituted in accordance with the needs and circumstances of the time, and that these reforms, while designed to give full autonomy to the colony and to create a virtual entity and self-contrclled administration, shall yet assert and affirm the sovereignty of Spain by a just distribution of powers and burdens upon a ba?:s of mutual interest untainted by methods of selfish expediency. The first acts of the new government lie in these honorable paths. The policy of cruel rapine and extermination that so long shocked the universal sentiment of humanity has been reversed. Under the new military commander a broad clemency is proffered. Measures save already been set on foot to relieve the horrors of starvation. The power of the Spanish armies, it is asserted, is to be used not to spread ruin and desolation, but to protect the resumption of peaceful agricultural pursuits and productive industries. That past methods are futile to force a peace by subjugation is freely admitted, and that ruin without conciliation must inevitably fail to win for Spain the fidelity of a contented dependency. Decrees in application of the foreshadowed reforms have already been promulgated. The full text of these decrees has not been received, but as furnished in a telegraphic summary from our minister are: [The president here summarizes the scheme of autonomy, which has been already widely printed in the press.] That the government of Sagasta has entered upon a course from which recession with honor is impossible can hardly be questioned; that in the few weeks that it has existed it ha.s made earnest of the sincerity of its professions is undeniable. I shall not impugn its sincereiry, nor should impatience be suffered to embarrass it in the task it has undertaken. It is honestly due to Spain and to our friendly relations with Spain that she should be given a reasonable chance to realize her expectations and to prove the asserted efficacy of the new order of things to which she stands irrevocably committed. She has recalled the commander whose brutal orders inflamed the American mind and shocked the civilized world. She has modified the horrible order of concentration, and has undertiken to care for the helpless and permit those who desire to resume the cultivation of their fields to do so, and assures of them of the protection of the Spanish government in their lawful occupations. She has just released the Competitor prisoners heretofore sentenced to death, and who have been the subject of repeated diplomatic correspondence during both this and the preceding administration.
