Phil Lookwood, of Chicago, a graud- aon of Mrs. £. H.

In tho opinion of the CHRONICLE tbe lights are first class, superior to many that we have seen in 04. her cities and competent judges say they are all right. We think the commissioners have worked for the best interests of tho city from the beginning and have sue cueded in providing the city with an electric light plant that is second to none of the size in tbe state.

The teratment'bf the ruH|#ou#aTi(l -educational establishments of American citizens: In Turkey hSs of lattf called for more than usual share of attention. A tendency to,curtail the toleration which has so beneficially prevailed' is discernible and has called forth thi* •earnest romobstranoes'of this gof ornmont. Harassing regulations in regard to/schools and churches have beoii attempted in certain localities, but not without due protest and the assertion of the Inherent and conventional rights-of our; countrymen. Violations of domicile and search of tbe jiorsons and effects of "citizens of tbe United States by apparently irresponsible officials in tho Asiatio,tilagets have from time 'to time been reported. An aggravated instance of injury to the property of the American missionary at Bourdeur in. the province of Konia, called forth aft urgent claim for reparation, which I am. pleased to say was .promptly .needed by tho-government of Porto, interference witn the wading ventures of our citizens' in Asia illnor ia also reported, and the lack of consular, representation in that regjqn is a serious drawback to instant and '• effective protec* tibn, 1 cannot boliovo thut those incidents represent a settled policy and. shall not ccaao to urgetho adoption of proper remedies. International copyright has been extended to Jtaly by proclamation in conformity with tne act of March 3' 1801, <upon -assurance being given that the Italian law permits tbe citizens of the United State* the benefit: of copyright on substantially the same basis as to subjects of Italy. By a special convention,, proclaimed Jan. 16,1863, reciprocal provisions of copyright have been applied between tho United States and Germany Negotiations are in progress with.other countries to the same. end. ' •I repeat with great earnestness the recommendation which I have made in several pre vious messages that prompt and adequate support bo given to the American company en gaged in the construction of tbe Nicaragua ship' canal. It^"impossible to overstate tbe value from every standpoint of this great en terprise, and rhope that there may be time even in this congress, to give toil an impetn that will insure the .early completion of tbr canal and secure to the United States its prope: .relation-to it when completed. •: The Silver Conference. ' The congress has been already advised tha the'invitations of this government for tho as sembling of an- international monetary confer enceto consider the question of an enlargec issue of silver waa accepted by the natibna to which they were issued. The conference a* sembled at Brussels on tbe 2£d of November and has* entered upon the consideration of this great question. I nave not doubted, apd have taken occasion to express that belief, as* well in the invitations issued for thia conference as in fny public messages., that the free coinage of silver upon an agreed'International ratio would greatly promote the interests.of our people and'equally those of other nations. It is too early to predict what result may be accomplished by the conference., If any temporary check or delay intervenes I believe that very soon commercial conditions w-ill compepthe now reluctant governments to unite with us in this movement to secure the enlargement of tile volume of money needed tor the tranae tion 01 the business of the worn.

The report'of* tbe secretary jpf the treasury will attract especial attention in view of tha many misleading statements that have been made as to the state of the public revenues. Three preliminary facts should not ouly ba stated but emphasized before looking, uato details: First, that tbe public debt has been reduced since March 4, ItW, $259,071,200 ana W annual interest charge 811,664,4tW; second, thai there have been paid out for pensions duno« tEE adminiatration up to Nov. 1,1802, $433,501, 178.70, *nLtffiCMs of »nMa8,886.W over the Bum expended duflag tbe period from March 1,1885, to March 1, 1889; a,n<i third, tb,at under tiw existing tariff up to Dec. 1 about .$93,000.000 <ti revenue, which -would have been collected upon imported sugars if tbe tariff bad been •nSStained, ha* gon» into, the pockets ot tb» people &nd not into the public treasury, as before.

In.view bf the fact that a.general revision of .our revenue laws kr the near future seems to be probable, it would, be better that any changes should be a part x>f that revision ^-.r.-.-ij.vjr- -" a temporaryiiature. ' v ' ., r __ ist fiscal year the secretary purchased under the a<Jt of July 14, 18BO, &4,856,748 ounces of silver, and issued in payment thero- fore ^51,UHt.a08 in notes. The total purchases since the passage of the apt have been 120,479,- . 981 ounces, and the .aggregate of. notes issued S116,788,80p. The average price paid for. silver during the year was 94 cents per ounce, the : highest price bolug Sl.lKVi, July 1,1891, and tho •» lowest $0.83 Marcli %l,im. In view of the fact that the .monetary conference is now titling and that no cenulusloh has as-yet been reached, •. I withhold any recommendation as to the logis^ lation'npon thta subject. .' .,.•.-;,': •••:'.. .,• •*'• • :Sccirtittii'y' of "Vf|»rJ« Rep'prt.-. : '•''/" . The; report 'at tho secretary, of. war brings again to the attention of congress some important to the reorganization nf tfho'- Infantry and artillery arms of. the service, which his predecessors have before urged that • they be pressed. > Our army is small, but its organization should all the more bej>utupon, the most approved modern .basis. The condi- . •: tions upon what, we have called the frontier have <heretofor.e required- the maintenance of many small posts, but now the policy of concentration is obviously the right one. The new posts should have the properstfateglorelation* to the only 1 , frontiers we now have, those of the sea coast and of the northern and part Of our southern boundary. 1 do not think that atiy question of advantage in localities or states should determine the location of the new posts. The organization and the enlargement of the bureau of, mill- tary information which the Secretary .has ' effected is a work the. usefulness of which will become every year more apparent. The work of building heavy guns and the construction of coast defenses has been well begun,- and should be carried on without check. . "\The report of the attorney-general is'by law- submitted directly to congress, but I cannot refrain from saying that be.ha»-conducted the increasing work of the department of justice with great professional skill. He has in several directions secured.from the courts decisions giving increased protection to the officers of the United '-States and bringing soina classes of crime that escaped local cognizance and punishment into tbe tribunals of the United States whore they could be tried impartially. The numerous applications for executive clemency presented in hohalf of persons convicted, in the United status courts and given , lenitentiary sentences 1 have called my atten- ion to'.a fact referred to' by the«attorney-gen- ral in his report, namely: -That a time allowance for good behavior for such >rison«ra is prescribed by tbe federal tatutes only where the state in which peni- entiary is located had made no such provision, •risouers are gl-v«n the benefit of tnu provis- ons of- the state law regulating the peoiteu,- iary to which they may be sent.
