"Manifestly nothing is more vital to our supreineacy as a nation and to the beneficent purposes of government than a sound and stable currency.Its exposure to degradation should at once arouse to activity the most enlightened statesmanship; and the danger of do pi-eolation in the purchasing power of wages being paid to all should furnish the strongest incentive to prompt and conservative precaution. Indeed, with our present embarrassing situation as ra.ited to this subject, we Avill be Aviso if Ave will temper confidence and faith In our national strength and resources, with the frank consession that even those will not permit us to defy Avith Impunity the inexorable laws of finance and trade. At the same time,, in our efforts to adjust differences of opinion, AVO should be free from iutolerauce or passion and our judgment should be unmoved by alluring phrases, and un- vexod by selfish interests. 1 am confident such an approach to the subject; will result hi prudent and effective remedial legislation. In the meantime,, so far as the executive branch of government can intervene, none of the poAvers Avith Avhich it is invested Avill be Avlthhcld when their exercise Is deemed necessary to mantain our national credit or avert liuacial disaster. "Closely related to the exaggerated confidence in our country's greatness which leads to tho disregards of rules of national safety, another danger confronts us not less serious.

The lessons of paternalism ought to be unlearned. Honor still, the lesson should be tau-ht that while the people should patrlotlc-lly and cheerfully support, their government, its functions do not include t he- support of the people. The acceptance of this principle leads-to tho 'refusal of bounties and subsidies Avhich burden the- labor'and- the thrift of languishing enterprises in impulse to their country's mauds equality before the l&Vr, which it guarantees every citizen. The enjoyment, of this right follows the badge of citizenship, wherever found, and,' unimpaired by race or color, it appeals for recognition to American manliness and fairness. Our relations with the Indians located within our borders impose upon us responsibilities we cannot escape. Humanity and consistency require us to treat them with forbearance, and.-in our dealings with them to honestly and con- sldcdatoly regard their lights and interests. Every effort should be made to load them through the- paths of civilization and education to self-supporting and hidepeiidenti citizenship. In the meantime as the nation's wards thoy should be promptly defended against ihe cupidity of designing men and shielded from every influence or temptation that retards their advancement. "The people of tho '"United States have decreed that ou this day tho control of their government in its legislative and executive branches. shall be given to the political party AA'hich pledges Itself hi the most positive terms to the accomplishment of tariff reform. They have thus determined iu favoi of a more just and equitable system of federal taxation. The agents may have chosen to cany out their purposes are bound by their promises to devote themselves unremittingly to this service. While there should bo no surrender of principle our task must be undertaken Aviscly and Aviihout vindictiveiio.ss. Our mission is not punishment but the righting of Avi-ong. • If to lighten the bunions from the daily life of our people \ve reduce the Inordinate and unequal advantages long enjoyed, this is but a necessary incident of our return to right and justice. If AVG exact from unAvlll- ing minds acquiescence in the theory of honest distribution, of the fund of governmental beneficence treasured up for all, AVO but insist upon tho principle which underlies our free Institutions. When AVO tear aside the delusions and misconceptions AA'hich have blinded our countrymen to their condition under vicious tariff laws, AVC but show them how far thoy have boon led away from thy paths of contentment and prosperity. When we proclaim that: necessary for revenue to support the government furnishes the only justification for taxing tho people AVO announce truth plainly, and Its denial Avould seem to indicate the extent to which judgment may bo influenced by familiarity with pervasions of tho lax- ing power; and when we seek to reinstate self-confident business enterprise of our citizens .-by discrediting abject! dependence upon governmental favor! we strive to stimulate those elements of American character Avhich support tho hojjo ur American achievement.

Wliile every American citizen must contemplate with the utmost; pride the groAvth and expansion of our country and the sulli- cion;-y of our Institutions to stand against the shocks of violence, the wonderful thrift and enterprise of our people and the demonstrated superiority of our free government, it behooves us constantly to Avatoh for every symptom of Insidious infirmity, that thief of national vigor. The strong man whose .•onlidonco of sturdy health courts the stornowt activities or man and rejoices n the Hardihood of constant: labor.' may still have lurking near his vitals an .mhcpded disease that dooms him to sudden colapso. It Cannot be doubted hat our stupendous achievements as courages prodigality and .extravagance in the home life of our countrymen Under our scheme of government a waste of public money is a crime contempt in our epople and frugality hi their personal affairs deplorably saps the strength and star- dmess of our national character. It is a plain dictate of honest and good government that public: expenditure* should be limited by public measured by rules of strict and it is equally clear necessity economy; that frugality among the people is tho best guaranty of a contented, strong support of free institutions. "One mode of misappropriation of awarded to promises a fair the purification "The existence public funds is avoided when appointments to office, instead of being rewards of partisan activity, are those whose efficiency return of work for the compensation paid them. To secure fitness and competency of appointees to office, and relieve from political action the demorali- sing madness for spoils, civil service reform has found a place in our public policy and laws. Tho benefits alreadv galned through this instrument and further usefulness promised entitles it to (lie hearty support and encouragement of all who desire our public service weU perfoi-ined, or who hope for the elevation of political sentiment and of political methods. of Immense aggregations of kindred enterprises and combinations of business interests formed for the purpose of limiting production, and fixing prices is inconsistent with tho fair field which ought to be open to every independent activity. Legitimate strife iu business should not be superseded by enforced concession to the demands of combinations that have the power to destroy, nor should the people to bo served lose the benefit of the cheapness which usually results from wholesome competition. Thoso aggregations and combinations frequently constitute conspiracy against the interests of the people, and in all their phases thoy are unnatural and opposed to our American sense of fairness, To the extent that they can be reached and restrained by federal power the general government should relieve our citizens from their interference and exactions. 10 a swift and "Tho oath i now take to preserve, protect and defend the constitution of tho United States not only impressively defines the great responsibility i assume, but suggests obedience to constitutional commands as the rule by which my official conduct must be guid- 1 shall to tho best of my ability and reservations and tho people. and Art-thin my sphere of duty preserve the constitution by loyally protecting ovory grant; of federal power it contains, by defending all its restraints when attacked by Impatience and restlessness, and by enforcing Its limitations h > favor of the states _ _ Fully impressed Avith the gravily of the duties that confront me, mindful of my weakness, 1 should be appalled if it wore my lot to bear unaided, the responsibilities Avhich await mo. 1 am, however, saved from discouragement Avhim i remember I shall have the support, counsel and cooperation of wise and patriotic men who will stand at my side in cabinet places, or represent the people in their legislative halls.
