"We have thus made the depletion of our gold easy, and have tempted other and more appreciative nations to add it to their stock. That the opportunity we have offered has not been neglected, is shown by the large amounts of gold which have been recently withdrawn from our treasury and exported to increase the financial strength of foreign nations. The excess of exports of gold over Its imports for the year ending June 30,1893, amounted to more than .$87,500,000. Between the first day of July, 1SOO, and the 15th day of July, 1803, the gold coin and bullion in our treasury decreased more than $132,000,000, while during the same period the silver coin and bullion in the treasury increased more than $147,000,000.

Rockwell. ing to about $150,000,000 on account raent, it is obvious that the United States will not be in a position to gain a hearing in favor of such an arrangement so long as we are willing to continue our attempt to accomplish the result single handed. "The knowledge in business circles, among our own people, that our government cannot make its flat equivalent to intrinsic value, nor keep inferior money on a parity with superior money by its own indepenclnnt efforts, has resulted in such a lack of confidence at home in the stability of currency values that capital refuses its aid to new enterprises while the millions are actually withdrawn from the channels of trade and commerce to become idle land unproductive in the hands of timid owners. Foreign investors, equally alert, not only decline to purchase American securities, but make haste to sacrifice those which they already have. "It does not meet the situation to say that apprehension in regard to the future of our finances is groundless and that there is no reason for lack of confidence in the purposes or power of the government in the promises. The very existence of this apprehension and lack of confidence, however, is a menace which ought not for a moment to be disregarded. Posibly if tho undertaking we have in hand were the maintenance of a specific known quantity of silver at a parity with gold; our ability to do so might be estimated and gauged, and perhaps iu view of our unparalleled growth and resources, might be favorably passed upon. But when our avowed endeavor is to maintain such parity in regard to an amount of silver increasing at a rate of $50,000,000 yearly, with no fixed termination to such increase, it can hardly be said ttiat a problem is presented whose solution is free from doubt. from which the busineSP of the country,, is suffering arise as i».. u i'-om the evils apprehended as iio^j iuose actually existing., We may hope, too, that calm counsels will prevail and that neitjher the capin.isis nor the wage-earners will ghu ,way to \m- reasonlng panic and sacrifice their property or their interests under the influence of exaggerated fear*. N'ever- theless every day's delay in removing one of the plain and principal causes of the present state of things enlarges the mischief already d<uio aud increases the responsibility of the government for Its existence. Whatever else the people have a rteht to expect from congress, they may certainly demand that legislation condemned by the ordeal of three years disastrous experience shall be removed from the statute books as soon as liielr representatives can legitimately deal with it, "It was my purpose to summon congress in special session early in the coming September, that we might enter promptly upon tho work of tariff reform, which the true Interests of ••, the country clearly demand, which s' / large a majority of the people as show! / by their suffrages, desire and expect, and to the accomplishment of which every effort of the present administration Is pledged. But while tariff reform has lost nothing of its immediate and permanent importance, and must iu the near future engage the attention of congress, it has seemed to me that the financial condition of the country should at once and before all other subjects be considered by your honorable body. , "I earnestly recommend the prompt repeal of the provisions of the act passed Juljy 14, 1890, authorizing the purcliase of silver bullion, and that other legislative action may put bo- youd all doubt or mistake the intention and the ability of the government to fulfill its pecuniary obligations in money universally recognized by all civilized countries.
