Y ^^ Report of His Third Annual Address to Congress, Sfteclait President Me-' message to the LVlth eoh'- gress tvaS one of the lengthiest ever submitted to the senate add house ot representatives ot the United States, flie death of Vice-president Hobart, vho parsed from this life on the inortt- Ing of Nor. 21 last, is mentioned as an event congress is called to mourn at the threshold of its deliberations. The president pronounces a high enconium tipon a private life Which was pure and elevated and a public! career distinguished by large capacity, stainless in- tegrMy and exalted motives. In beginning his review of national and international relations and questions the president calls attention to the present conditions of unusual prosperity, of universal good will among the people at home and the relations of peace and friendship that exist with every government of the world. As an element of this unusual prosperity our foreign commerce, it is stated, has shown great increase in volume and value, the combined imports and exports for the twelvemonth being the greatest ever recorded in a single year of our history. It is mentioned as a noteworthy fact that the only years in all our history when t-x.-. products our manufactories sold abroad exceeded those bought abroad were 1898 and 1899. Government receipts from all sources for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1899, aggregated $610,982,004.35; expenditures were 1700,093,56102, leaving a deficit of $89,111,559.67. The estimated receipts for the current year aggregated $40,958,112; estimated expenditures, $600,958,112, leaving a surplus of $40,000,000. The strength of the treasury is gratifying. On Dec. 1, 1899, the available cash balance was $278,004,537.72, of •which $239.744,905.36 was in gold coin and bullion. Customs receipts are now almost entirely paid in gold. Owing to this favorable condition of the treasury with respect to the cash on hand compliance with the provisions of the sinking fund, disregarded for eight years on account of deficiencies In the revenues, was resumed, the treasury department purchasing during November $18,408,500 of the 5 per cent loan of 1904, thus making a net saving of about $2,885,000 in interest. The government will continue to pur- . chase bonds to the extent of $25,000,000 in all provided these are offered and purchased up to and including Dec. 23. Increased activity in industry and agriculture and consequent larger employment of labor at higher wages adds to the capacity of the people to absorb the circulating medium. These changed and Changing conditions have impaired the national banking act as to making the needful addition to the circulation. The attention of congress is therefore invited to this subject with a view to making this act more responsive to the people's needs. The president again urges, therefore, that national banks be authorized to organize with a capital of $25,000. He also recommends that the secretary of the treasury be given additional power and charged with the duty to sell United States bonds and to employ such other effective means as may be necessary to maintain the parity in value of the two metals, gold and silver, and the equal power of every dollar at all times in the market and in the payment of debts. Gold now seeks the treasury, but adequate provision should be made to insure the continuance of the gold standard and of public confidence in the ability of the gov- .e»nment to meet all its obligations in the money which the civilized world recognizes as the best. In this connection the president repeats his former recommendation that a portion of the gold holdings shall be placed in a trust fund from which greenbacks shall be redeemed upon presentation but when once redeemed shall not thereafter be paid out except in gold. Relating to American merchant marine it is recommended that legislation should be enacted which w'ill give to the country maritime strength commensurate with its industrial achievements and its rank among the nations of the earth. Only in this way can we secure our share in the valuable carrying trade of the world. The. present situation in this respect, the president, eays, is regarded with humiliation at home and with surprise.abroad. , ,,tb§ A subJect of trusts the presl- 'put>lle ~ discussion and should claim the attention of congress. The industrial 'commission, created by act of congress June * g, 1898, has not yet completed Its Investigations of this subject. Whatever power congress hfts i,n the wijty of controlling or check- Jnjr t .thepe, monopolies should v bo 'promptly ascertained and asserted. At- Aejmon is cauea to me recommenda- jtions of president Hwrison In hie an* Jniuvl message of Dec. 3, 1889, and to that of President Cleveland in his annual message of Pec, 7, J.898, as well as to the act of July, 1890, bearing Upon this subject It Is noted that the .jj|aj£ legislation to which President Cleveland looked Jpr relief from the evil Of trjipts has failed fully £o acconiT plljjh th^i object, owing principally to the fi^et that different (?tates take dif- Jtereftt ytem <*s to the proper way 41spr|n?Jnaie between evil ^nd Wipne $ad those ets#ocl^ ar e beneficlaj a_»4 oecest sary to the business prosperity of the country. The president adds that uniformity in- state legislation on this subject is much to be desired and expresses the hope that means may be found for congress within the limitations of constitutional power BO to supplement an effective code of state legislation as to make a complete system of laws and compel a general observance of the salutary rules to which he refers. In his view of our relations to foreign states the president notes the settlement of the long-pending boundary dispute between the Argentine republic and Chile, In which the United States minister at Buenos Ayres served as umpire. A convention of extradition between Argentina and the United States awaits some slight changes in the text before exchange. Reference is made to the claim of the Austro-Himgarian government for the killing of certain Austrian and Hungarian subjects at Lattimer, Pa., Sept. 10, 1S97. As the sheriff and his deputies tried for their murder were acquitted by the courts this government, after due consideration, declined to indemnify the sufferers. Note is made of various minor difficulties and insurrections in certain South American and Central American republics and the changes resulting. The Blueflelds controversy is still unsettled. The events of the past year lookins to an isthmian canal are recapitiuacuu and reasons for early action in the matter are urged. Events in China as far as concerns American interests are recounted and the extension of the area, opened to foreign settlement is referred to. The significant statement is made on this subject that our commercial rights in China under existing treaties have been everywhere maintained during the past year, as they will be in the future. A commission to study the commercial and industrial conditions in the Chinese empire is recommended. No time should be lost in studying for ourselves the resources of this great field for American trade and enterprise. The Paris exposition and the preparations of this country to take part In it are related at length, and the importance of a representative display is urged. The United States government building, now approaching completion, will be worthy in beauty of architectural plan and in completeness of display to represent this nation. There will be over 7,000 exhibitors for every state of our country, not including exhibits from Cuba, Porto Rico and Hawaii, for which arrangements have been made. Our relations with Germany continue to be most cordial and the statement is made that in all the promises closer relations of intercourse and commerce and a better understanding between two races having so many traits in common, Germany can be assured of the most cordial co-operation of this government ana people. Various matters pertaining to certain restrictions of trade between the two countries and also the satisfactory settlement of most of them and a recommendation for a joint commission of experts and practical men of affairs for the investigation of production and exportation in both countries is urged. As to affairs with Great Britain the work of the joint high commission is recapitulated and the arrival at a harmonious modus Vivendi in the Alaskan boundary dispute gives hope of a permanent satisfactory settlement. In other matters the relations between the United States and Canada and Great Britain remain most friendly. In the unfortunate contest between the Boer states of Africa and Great Britain this government has maintained an attitude of neutrality. In the exercise of customary good offices of a neutral for the care of British interests opportunity has been afforded to show the impartiality of this government toward both combatants. As to the deplorable events at Tallulah, La., when five Italians were taken from Jail and hanged, the president states that a satisfactory solution of the dispute between the two governments in regard to the matter will doubtless be reached. The recurrence of such events leads the president to recommend the conferring upon the federal courts Jurisdiction in this class of cases. ..• . < Mention is made in speaking of our relations with Japan of the treaty of commerce and navigation between the United States and Japan on Nov. 23, 1894, which became operative in July last. It is also stated that Japan is taking a. lively Interest In the proposition of the Paciflc c»bte company to add to Us projected cable lines to Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines a branch connection with the coast of Japan, whereby the latter would be brought intp direct communication with this country. Without repeating his previous recommendations on this subject the president respectfully calls Che attention of congress to them and recommends that the postmaster-general be authorized to invite compete tlve bids for the establishment of such cable. A review of our relations with Mexico shows a gratifying record of mutual food wjil, one Qf the latest in- Stances, belnj; the ajcceptaace of Prosl- Pisw pi w» invitation. t» vlpH OW- fast October, bu£ the illness oTa member of his family prevented hi* attendance. • Claims growing out of the seizure of American sealing vessels In Bering sea by Russia have been under discussion for several years with the recent happy result of an agreement to submit them to the decision of a single arbitrator. the important events leading to the dissolution of the tripartite agreement as regards the Samoan islands are recounted and also the satisfactory partition of the islands between Germany and the United States, Great Britain being given by Get-many an equivalent elsewhere. A convention has been made by the three powers to which the attention of the senate will be invited, Concerning events and conditions growing out of the recent war with Spain the message treats very fully. As to Cuba, held by us in trust for the inhabitants with the intent of realizing me high purpose proclaimed in the joint resolution adopted by the congress on the 19th of April, 1898, the president states that the pledge contained in this resolution is of the highest honorable obligation and must be kept. All the administration measures adopted heretofore In Cuba by this government have aimed to fit it for a regenerated existence and for self-government within Its own sphere. Free Cuba, however, must be a reality, not a name. A loosely-framed commonwealth is not to be turned adrift to face the vicissitudes of weaker states, but wise preparation must be made for eventual self-government of responsible character. In the Turkish empire the situation of our citizens remains unsatisfactory and claims of many years' standing have not yet been collected, though our government is hopeful in this regard. Attention Is called to the arrangements made for collecting official and economic data under the international union of American republics and also to the commercial museum of Philadelphia in furtherance of this idea and the Pan-American exposition of 1901 '. on the Niagara frontier. : | The president- gives a resume of the Hague conference and its results in the amelioration of the laws and customs of war and says that the historic position of the United States as to entanglements with foreign nations was duly observed. In regard to the army, especially in- tee Philippines, the message gives figures and facts showing the actua!j number returned, -nc. Mr. McKinleyf recommends a special medal of honor, for volunteers, regulars, sailors and: marines on duty in the Philippines who remained in service after their terms of enlistment expired. The total! number of troops now in the Philippines and those on the way comprise 2,051 officers and 63,483 men. The development of the postal system in Porto Rico and the Philippines is stated to have been rapid and successful and to be growing with extraordinary popularity in the domestic service or in the United States proper. As to the navy high praise is givea it for its efficiency and recommendations are made for necessary legislation and aid in the matter of naval construction as suggested by the secretary of the navy. The statements of the message as to the future of the Philippines are clear and unequivocal. The rebellion must be put down and civil government restored. Free public schools must be established and the burden of government equally distributed. Already hundreds of schools are open and filled with children. Religious freedom is sacredly assured and enjoyed. The courts are dispensing justice and business Is beginning to circulate in its accustomed channels. The future government of the islands rests with the congress of the United States, and the president adds that a few graver responsibilties have ever been confided to us. If we accept them in a spirit worthy our race and traditions a great opportunity comes with them. The islands lie under our flag. They are ours by every title of law and equity. They cannot be abandoned. If we desert them we leave them at once to anarchy and finally to barbarism. No specific or final form of government for the islands is recommended. When peace is restored it will be the duty of congress to construct a plan of government which shall establish freedom and order in the Philippines. Until congress makes known the final expression of its will the president must use the authority vested in him to uphold the sovereignty of the United States in the Islands. When the insurrection ends it will be the hour of peace and'clemency, The text of the message, referring to the Philippines, is in full; On Dec. 10, J898, the treaty of peace between the United States and Spain was signed. It provided, among other things, that Spain should cede to the United States the archipelago known as the Philippine islands, that the .United States should pay tp Spain the gum of |20,. 000,000, and that the civil rights and political status of the native Inhabitants of the territpries thus ceded to the United States should be determined by the congress. The treaty was ratified by the senate on the 6th of February, 1899, and by the government of Spain on March 19 following. The ratifications were exchanged on April 11, and the treaty publicly proclaimed. On March 2 the congress voted the ?um contemplated by the treaty and v the amount was paid over te the Spanish government pn May 1st. In this manner the Philippines came to the United States. The islands were ceded by the government of "Spain, which ht«j been In undisputed ppsseslon of them for centuries. They were accepted not jnerely by pur author^ed commissioners in Paris, under the direction of $he ex ecutive, but by the #mstU«tlo,n ft l wellrconeWerea ftp$ton pf the ;lyef 9* (he pepnle, af Uje, i fn tiotfi honseV 6T congress, t" Bad "ever; reason to believe, anfl I still believe, tha this transfer of sovereignty was in ac eordanee with the wishes and the aspir ations of the great mass ot the Filipino people. Prow the earliest moment no opportunity was lost of assuring the people of the Islands of our ardent desire for their welfare and of the Intention of thlt government to do everything possible to advance their Interests. In my order of the 19th of May. 1S98. the commander of the military expedition dispatched to the Philippines was Instructed to declare that we came not to make war upon the people of that country, "nor upon any party of faction among them, but to protect them In their homes. In their employments and In their personal and religious rights." That there should be ho doubt as to the paramount authority there, on the 17th of August It was directed that "there must be no joint occupation with the Insurgents;" that the United States must preserve the peace and protect persons and property within the territory occupied by their military and naval forces: that the Insurgents* and all others must recognMo the military occupation and authority of the United States. As early as December 4, before the cess'on. and In anticipation of that event, the commander in Manila was urg-etl to restore peace and tranquil- lity and to undertake the establishment of a beneficent government, which should afford the fullest security for life and property. On the 21s=t of December, after the treaty was signed, the commander of the forces of occupation was instructed "to announce and proclaim in the most public manner that we come not ns Invaders and conquerors but as friends to protect the natives? in their homes, in their employments and In the personal and religious rights." On the same day, while ordering Gen. Otis to see that the pea-ce should be preserved in Hollo, ho was admonished that: "It is most Important that there should be no conflict with the insurgents." On the first day of January, 1S09, urgent orders were reiterated that the kindly intent:ons of this government should be in every possible way communicated to the Insurgents. On the 21st of January I announced my intention of dispatching to Manila a commission composed of three gentlemen of the highest character and distinction thoroughly acquainted with the orient, who, in association with Admiral Dewey and Major-General Otis, were instructed to "facilitate the most humane and effective extension of authority throughout the islands and to secure with the least possible delay the benefits of a wise and generous protection of life and property to the inhabitants." These gentlemen were Dr. Jacob Gould Schurman. president of Cornell university: the Hon. Charles Denby, for many years minister to China, and Prof. Dean C. Worcester of the University of Michigan, who had made a most careful study of life In the Philippines. But before their arrival at Manila the sin:ster ambition of a few leaders of the Filipinos had created a situation full of embarrassments for us and most grievous in its consequences to themselves. The clear and impartial preliminary report of the commissioners gives so lucid and comprehensive a. history of the present insurrectionary movement that the story need not be here repeated. It is enough to say that the claim of the rebel leader that he was promised independence by any officer of the United States in return for his assistance has no foundation in fact and is categorically denied by tha very witnesses who were called to prove it. The most the insurgent leader hoped for when he came back to Manila was the liberation of the islands from the Spanish control, which they had been laboring for years without success to throw off. The prompt accomplishment of this work by the American army and navy gave him other ideas and ambitions and insidious suggestions from various 'quarters perverted the purposes and intentions with which he had taken up arms. x No sooner had our army captured Manila than the Filipino forces began to assume an attitude of suspicion and hostility, which the utmost efforts of our officers and troops were unable to disarm or modify. Their kindness and forbearance were taken as a proof of cowardice. The aggressions of the Filipinos continually increased until finally, just before the time set by the senate of the United States for a vote upon the treaty, an attack, evidently prepared In advance, was mado nil alone the Amfirle'in lines, wnicn resulted In a terribly destructive and sanguinary repulse of the Insurgents. Ten days later an order of the Insurgent government was Issued to Its ad- he . r1e " tl L wl>0 had remained in Manila, of which Gen. Otis justly observes that "for barbarous Intent It Is unequaled in modern times." It directs that at 8 o'clock on the night of the JSth of February the territorial militia shall come together In the streets of San Pedro, armed with their bplos, with guns and ammunition where convenient: that Filipino families only shall be respected; but that all other individuals, of whatever race they ma-y be, shall be exterminated without any compassion, after the extermination of ^the army of occupation, and adds: "Brothers, we must avenge ourselves on the Americans and exterminate them, that me may take out revenge for the infamies and treacheries which they have committed upon us. Have no compassion upon them; attack with vigor." A copy of this fell by good fortune Into the hands of our officers and they were able to take measures to control the rising, which was actually attempted on the night of Feb. 22, a week later than was originally contemplated. Considerable numbers of armed insurgents entered the city by waterways and swamps and In concert with confederates Inside attempted to destroy Manila by fire. They were kept in check during the night and the next day driven out of the city with heavy loss. This was the'unhappy condition of affairs which confronted our commissioners on their arrival In Manila. They had come with the hope and intention of cooperating with Admiral Dewey and Major-Gen, Otis in establishing peace and order In the archipelago and the largest measure of self-government compatible with the true welfare of the people. What they actually found can best be set forth In their own words: "Deplorable as war Is, the one In which we are now engaged was unavoidable by us. We were attacked by a bold, adventurous and enthuiastio army. No alternative was left tp us, except ignominous retreat "It la not to be conceived of that any American would have sanctioned the surrender of Manila to the Insurgents. Our obligations to other nations and to the friendly Filipinos and tp' our selves and pur nag demanded that force should be met by force. Whatever the future Pf the Philippines may be, there la no course open to us now except the prosecution of the war untij the Insurgents are reduced to submission. The commission is pf the opinion that there has been no time since the destruction pf the Spanish squadron by Admiral Pewey when it was possible to withdraw our forces frpm the Islands, either with, honor tp purselyes pr with safety tP the Inhabitants." The course thus clearly indicated has been unflinchingly pursued, The rebel- IIPO roust be put down. Civil gpyern. ment cannpt be thorpughly established vntil prd.er is restored.

Although their operations have been somewhat Interrupted and checked by a rainy Season of unusual violence and duration, t they, have gained ground steadily in every direction and now look forwar confidently to a speedy completion o their task. As to Porto Rico the message states the time is ripe for the adoption of a temporary form of government for th island. Many of the suggestions mad. with reference to Alaska, it Is stated are applicable also to Porto Rico Changes in the latter, however, shoulc hot be made abruptly and racial pe culiarities must be given due Weight The message closes with some pertinent suggestions as to lynchings in the south, the proposed memorial bridge over the Potomac and a statement ol the purposes of the executive order relating to civil service of May 6, 1896, and a reference to the coming 14th ol December, the 100th anniversary of the death of Washington, and the patriotic reflections naturally arising therefrom and concludes with these words: "Never has this nation had more abundant cause than during the past year for thankfulness to God for manifold blessings and mercies, for which we make reverent acknowledgment." 1/aurence Qrnnland. write* *ho died a feV » New York, Vas a thorough One evening after he had the modern industrial terms, a friend Mlhrnukee Invites Dewey, Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 5.—The Judiciary committee of the common council at last night's meeting offered a resolution, which was passed unanimously, in lieu ol the one submitted )y Mayor Rose, extending to Admiral Dewey a cordial and hearty Invitation to visit the city of Milwaukee Immediately following his visit to Chicago n May next. A ROMANCE COUNTED OUT. Enulgn 1'ouell and Wife Had Alwayi Ileen Sn-eethearti. Ensign "Joe" Powell, who followed after Hobson In a steam launch on the light the latter blew up the Merrlmao n the narrows of Santiago harbor, vas married recently at Oswego, N. Y., tc Miss Bertha Allen Osterhout. Both were born and reared in Oswego, but Pretty much all northern New York took an Interest in the event. Some months ago one of the New York Sunday papers printed a story about Ensign Powell being nursed back to life by Miss Osterhout in one of the military hospitals after the Santiago campaign, and founded the romance on this experience. This tale gave just and serious offense to the many friends of both parties, because it was untrue and grossly irreconcilable with the character of either the ensign or his bride. They were children together, and just belonged, like Dick and Maisie, in Kipling's story. At least, that is all the world knows about their romance, or is likely ever to know, for neither party has any sympathy with grandstand plays. Indeed, Powell's modesty Is his strongest weakness. He has refused several offers from magazines to-write the story of his experience on the night the Merrimac was sunk. The only authentic story yet published of that daring performance—more daring, some naval men have said, than Hobsqn's own—was incomplete, and it was wrung from the ensign almost without his consent.cer- tainly without any encouragement from him. Ensign Powell belongs to the construction corps, having gradu- j ated number three in his class at An- j napolis in 1898. He volunteered for ! the line when the war broke out, but has now gone back to his own department. Thus he will be able to spend his honeymoon in Glasgow, having been detailed for construction 'work on the Clyde for six months. One of the open secrets of the navy is that England and France, just before the war, withdrew from American naval graduates the ancient privilege of studying at their shipyards, for the reason that the Yankee boys had got into the habit of winning all the prizes. Lately, in pursuance of her friendly policy toward Uncle Sam, England has restored the courtesy, and Ensign Powell is one of the first Americans to profit by this freak of International comity,—Satun day Evening Post.

The duke and duchess of Connaught on their visit to Egypt, met with sev-' era! humorous experiences. One of them shows that even the Egyptians are not free from an unhappy weakness for saying just the wrong thing at a critical moment. After an inspection of the troops by the duke, outside of Omdurman, to which the duchess had accompanied him on horseback, the girths ot her saddle suddenly gave way. There was no way of repairing them, and to enable her royal highness to get back with the least possible Inconvenience a sort of sedan chair was improvised from a gun-carriage, On this she was carried by Egyptian gunners, who were in charge of A native officer. On the way the duchess sajd: "I hope your men will not be tired carrying me," and was surprised and sunuaed to re* celve the iingallant reply: "Indeed, no, madame; you are no heavier than the gun they are accustomed to carry!"
