President' MoKinle'y's lna«gr«ral ad- ttntmt, delivered Immediately after he had tak«n the oath of ofllc^, Is as follows; .•'•-•' Fellow Cltijsens:—In obedience to tfce Will of the people atxl In their in-esence, by the authority vested in me by this oath, I assume the arduous and respon* slble duties of President of jthe United Stales, relying on ifre support of my countrymen and Invoking the guidance ot Almighty God. Out faith teaches that there is no eaf'er reliance than upon the God of our fathers, ''•who hag so singularly favored the American people In every national trial and who •will riot forsake Ma so long as-we obey Ills commandments and walk humbly in His footsteps. The responsibilities of the hlgrh trust to which I have been called—always of •grave Importance—are augmented by the prevailing business conditions, entailing Idleness upon willing labor and loss to useful enterprises. The country is suffering from industrial dlsturb- . anccs from which speedy relief .must be revision; our money Is all good now, but Its value must not further be threatened. It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor Us stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency should continue under the supervision of the government. The several forms of our 'paper money offer, fh my Judgment, a constant embarrassment to the government and a safe, balance In the treasury. Therefore, I -believe it necessary to devise a system which, without diminishing the circulating 1 medium or offering a premium for its contraction, will presenta remedy for these arrangements, _whlch, temporary -In their nature, might well in the years of our ' prosperity have been displaced by wiser provisions. • With adequate revenue secured, but nwt until then,' can We enter upon such changes In our nscal laws as will, while insuring safety and volume to our money,' no longer impose upon the government the necessity of maintaining so large a gold reserve, with Its attend-ant and Inevitable temptations to apec- ulaUone^ilQatrfif -=rou rrrfl n anei atrlawa; the outgrowth of experience ancF trial and should not be ajnended wlth- -out investigation and demonstration of the wisdom of the proposed changes. "\Ve must be sure we are right and ""make haste elowly." : If, therefore, congress in its-. wisdom , ehall deem It expedient to create a commission to take under early eonsldera- tion the revision of <our coinage, banking and currency laws, end give them that exhaustive, careful and dispassionate examination that their importance demands, I shall cordially concur in such action. If such power Is vested in the President It Is my purpose 'to appoint a commission of prominent, _ well-informed .citizens of different parties who will command 'public con- :fldence, both on account of their ability «n<l special-fitness for the work. Busl- .ness experience and public training _'3nay thus be combined and the patriotic zeal of the friends of the country be so xllrected that such a report will be anode as to receive the support of all (parties and our finances cease-to-be -the subject of mere partisan contention. Tie experiment Is, at all events, worth a trial, and, in my opinion. It can but prove beneficial to the entire^ country. 7- International" lUtaetallUtu. ; The question of international bimetallism will have ear"ly and .earnest .attention. It will be my constant endeavor to secure it by co-operation •with the other great commercial pow. • IB realized when the parity between our gold and . silver money . springs, from and 'is supported by the relatlvfe .value of the two metals the value of the silver already coined and of that which znay hereafter be coined must be kept constantly at par with gold by every resource at our command. The credit of the government, the integrity of its currency and the inviolability of its obligations must' be preserved. This waa . the commanding verdict of the , people, and it will not be unheeded. ^ Economy is demanded In every ,' branch of the government at all times,, .but especially in periods like the present depression' of business and distress among the people. The severest econ- omy:mustbe observed in all public expenditures, and extravagance . stopped wherever it is found and prevented wherever in the future it may be developed. If the revenues are to remain as now, theionly relief that can come muet'be from decreased expenditures. 'But the present must not become the . permanent condition. of the government. It 'has been our. uniform practice to re• tire, not increase, our outstanding obligations, and this policy must again be resumed and vigorously enforced. Our •revenues should always be large .enough to meet with ease and prompt- nesa not only our current needs and the principal and Interest of the public •debt, but to mako proper and liberal provisions for that most deserving "body "of public creditors, the soldiers , sind sailors, and the widows and orphans who the pensioners of the 'United States. , The government should^ not be per- •mltted to. run ' behind, or" Increase ita •debt, In times like the present'. Suitably to provide against this is the man•date of duty'; the certain and easy remedy for most of our financial difficulties. A' deficiency is Inevitable so long as the expenditures of the government exceeds ita 'receipts. It can only be met 'by loans or an increased revemie.' While a large annual surplus of revenue may invite waste and extravagance, inadequate revenue ere- Mes distrust and undermines public a-nd private crodlt. Neither should be T «ncouragedr Between 'wore loans and •more revenue, there ought to be but one opinion. We should have more , revenue, and tijat without 'delay, hin- drawee or postponement. A surplus In the treasury created, by Joana is not a ' permanent or 8j|tfe reliance, Jt will suffice while it lasts, but it cannot last Jong while the outlays -of the govern- jaaent. ar.e greater, than. its receipts, as lias been the case during the last two years. , Nor must forgotten that however much such loans may temporarily relieve the (situation the gov- ernraenj is still indebted , for the amount of the surplus thue accrued, Tsfatch it saust ultimately pay, while its ability to pay is not etrengthened, but weakened, by a continued deficit.

Jftt- . : t popular tittorftBce to the system of t<--!ft taxation. There can be no misunderstanding, £i;her, about the principle upon which ''is tariff taxation shall be levied. Xothlrig has ever been made plainer at '. general election than that the con- .rolling principle in the raising of rev- "nue on Imports Is zealous care for the American interests and American labor. The people have declared «that such legislation should be had as* will give ample protection and encouragement to the Industries and the development of our country. It is, therefore, earnestly-hoped and expectedjthat congress will, at the earliest practicable moment, enact revenue legislation that shall be fair, reasonable, conservative, and Just, and which, while supplying sufficient revenue for public purposes, will still be signally beneficial and helpful to every section and every enterprise of the people. To this policy we 'are all, of whatever party, firmly bound by the V«lce of the people—a power vastly more potential than the expression of any political platform. The. paramount duty of congress Is to stop deficiencies by the restoration of that protective legislation which has always ; been the firmest prop of the treasury. The passage -of _euch.a law- or-lawi*—would- :str*n jflfienf- the—ered It—of -the -govern^ ment both at home and abroad, and go far toward stopping the drain upon the gold reserve held for the redemption of our currency which has been heavy and well-nigh constant for several years. Reciprocity. , • In the revision of the. tariff especial attention should be given to the re-en-, actment and extension of the reciprocity principle of the law of 1890, under which so great a stimulus was given to pur foreign trade in new and advantageous markets, for pur surplus agricultural and manufactured products. The briefLtrlal given this legislation amply justifies a further experiment and additional discretionary power in the making of commercial treaties, the end in view always to be the opening up of new markets for the products of our country by granting concessions to the products of other lands that we need and cannot produce ourselves, and which do not involve any loss of labor to our own people, but tend to increase their employment. The depression of the last four years the great body of the country, and upon none more than .the holders of small farms. Agriculture has languished and labor suffered. The" revival of manufacturing: will be a relief to both. No portion of our population is more "devoted to the institutions of free government nor more loyal in their support, while none bears more cheerfully or fully its proper share In the maintenance of the government or is better,entitled to its wise and liberal care and protection. Legislation helpful to the producer Is beneficial to all. The depj-essed condition of Industry on the farm and in the mine and factory .has lessened the ability of the people to meet the, demands upon them, and they rightfully expect that not only a system of revenue shall be established that will secure the largest Income with the least burden, but that every means will be taken to decrease rather than Increase our public expenditures. Bus!-, ness ^conditions are not the most promising. It will take time to -restore the prosperity of former years. If we cannot promptly attain It, we can resolutely turn our faces irf that direction and ^However troublesome 'the situation may apepar, congress will not, I am sure, be found lacking in disposition or ability to relieve it, so far as legislation can do 'so. The restoration of confidence and the revival of business, sire, depend more largely upon "the" prompt, energetic and Intelligent action of congress than upon any other single agency affecting the situation. Duties of Citizenship. It is inspiring, too, to remember that no great emergency in the one hundred and eight years of our eventful national life has ever arisen that has not been met with wisdom and courage by the American people, with fidelity to their best interests and highest destiny and to the honor of the American name. These years of glorious history have exalted -mankind -' and 1 advanced the cause of freedom throughout the. world and immeasurably etrengthened the precious free, institutions which we enjoy; The people love and will 'sustain these institutions. The great essential to our happiness and prosperity is that we adhere to the principle^ upon which the government was established and insist upon their faithful observance. Equality of rights must prevail and our laws be always and everywhere respected and obeyed. "We may have failed in the discharge of our full duty as citizens of the great republic, but it is consoling and encouraging to realize that free speech, a free press, free thought, free schools,- the free and unmolested right of religious liberty and worship and free and fair elections are dearer and more universally enjoyed today than ever before. These guarantie/3 must be sacredly preserved and wisely strengthened. The constituted authorities must fee cheerfully and vigorously upheld. IJynchings must not be tolerated in a great 1 and civilized country like th'e United States; courts—not mobs—must execute the penalties of the law. The preservation, of public 'order, the right of discussion, the integrity of courts and the orderly administration of justice must continue forever the rock of eafety upon which our'government securely rests. One of the lessons taught by the late election, which all can rejoice in, is that the citizens of the United States are both law-respecting and law-abiding people, not easily swerved from the path of patriotism and honor. This is in entire accord with the genius of our Institutions, and but emphasizes the advantages -of inculcating even a greater love *or law and order In the future. Immunity should be, granted to none who vlolates'the laws", whether individuals, corporations or communl-' ties; and as the constitution imposes upon the President the duty of both Us own execution end of the-statutes enacted in pursuance of its provisions, I shall enieavor carefully to carry them into effect. The declaration of the party now restored to power has been in the paat that of "opposition to all combinations of capital organized in trusts or otherwise to control arbitrarily the condition of trade among our citizotia." and It has supported "such legislation, as will prevent ' the execution of all iraes -to oppress the people by un- eharges on their supplies or by unjust rates tor the transportation of their products to market/' This purpose will lm steadily pursued, • both by the enforcement of the laws now. in ~ .the recommendation and support of *uch statutes as may it |nto ~ " rf ft fn T!Bf'!"-r<:*'>n>1 or ton vi nt-' fl-p gT-if vnrift nff aatuni4toM:kin and tr. i *<•>•» 8,Tv1 arain"!' ftll TV ho ronr" 4 hTs* to wnr upon th«m nnr gatfs m«i,*t be promptlj? und tfshtly clopiMj. Nor must we be unmindful at the nf»ed o? Improvement among our eitlzoTjf. bnt with the zeal of our forefathers "enconraga the spread of knowledge and free education. Illiteracy must be banished from the,-land If we shall attahn that high destiny as the foremost of the enlightened nations of the world, which, under Providence, we ought to achieve. Reforms In the civil service must go on, but the chango should be real and genuine, not perfunctory tir prompted by a zeal in behalf of any party, simply because It happens to be In power. _As.ttijmenibertol-.eonErt&fea.t-voted and spoke In favor of the present law, and 1> shall attempt its enforcement In the spirit In which it was enacted. The purpose in x view waa to sevure the most efficient service of the best men who would accept appointment under the government, retaining faithful and devoted public servants In office, but shielding none under the authority of any rule or custom who is inefficient, Incompetent or unworthy. The best Interests of the country demand this, and the people heartily approve: the law wherever and whenever II has been thus administered. Congress should give prompt attention to the restoration of our American merchant tnarlng^nnce'thc' prldgjof'the' Bea3~ln~all tKe~lfreal ocearThTgfiwayB o commerce. To my mind, few more Important subjects so imperatively" demand its Intelligent consideration.' The United States has progressed with marvelous rapidity In every field of enterprise and endeavor, until we have became foremost in nearly all the great lines of inland trade, commerce and Industry. Yet, while this Is true,-our American merchant marine has been steadily declining Until It Is now lower, both In the percentage of tonnage and the number of vessels employed, than It was prior to the civil war. Commendable progress -has been made of late years In the upbuilding of the American navy, but we • must supplement these efforts .by providing as a proper consort for It a merchant marine amply sufficient for our carry- Irig trade to foreign countries. The question is one that appeals both to our business necessities and the patriotic aspirations of a great people.' • Foreign To! Icy. It has been the policy of the United States since the foundation of the gov- £rnment-tQ-cuItlvatc_relatlpna.of- ; p|ace = 'BTnd RMiily Vi wlUr~&ll~ ; lire naiiohs of the world, and this accords with my conception of our duty now. \Ve have cherished the policy of non-Interference with the affairs of foreign governments, wisely Inaugurated by Washington, keeping dur'selves free from entanglement either as allies or foes, content to leave undisturbed with them the settlement of their own domestic concerns. It will be our aim to pursue a firm and dignified foreign policy, which shall be just, impartial, ever watchful of our national honor and always insisting upon the enforcement of the lawful rights of American citizens everywhere. Our diplomacy should seek nothing more and accept nothing less; we-must avoid the temptation of. territorial aggression. War should never be entered upon until every agency of peace has failed; peace is preferable to war in almost every contingency. . , Arbitration is the true method of settlement of international as well as local or Individual. • difference. It was recognized'...aa .the' best means *f adjustment of•" differences between employers and employes ;by - the forty- ninth congress, in 18S6, .and ' its appll- catlomwas-extended-to our diplomatic, relations ~by ~the~unanlmoun~~concur-" rence of the senate, and house of the fifty-first congress, in. 1890. The latter resolution was accepted as the* basis of negotiations 'with us 'by the British house of commons in 1893, and upon our InvltaUon-a.^treatV—of—arbltration_be^. tween™the~unlted—States and~Great~ Britain was signed at Washington and, transmitted to the senate for its ratification in January last. Since, this treaty is clearly the result of our ,own Initiative; since it has been recognized as the leading feature of our foreign policy throughout our entirenatlonal history— the adjustment of difficulties by Judicial methods rather than by force of arms—and since It presents to the world the glorious example of reason and peace, not .passion and war, controlling the relations between two of the greatest nations of the world, an example certain to be followed by oth- |rs, I respectfully urge the early action of the senate thereon, not merely ,aa a jnatter ot pol|cy,jbut a8_a_duty_to_man- kind. . <• The Importance and moral influence bf the ratification of such a treaty can hardly be-pverestlmated in the cause of advancing civilization. It. may well engage the best thought of the statesmen and people and every country, and t cannot but consider 'It fortunate that It was reserved to the United States to have the leadership In eo grand a, work.' extra Session of Congress. It has been the uniform practice of each President to avoid, so far as pos- plble, the convening of congress in extraordinary session, i It is an example which, under orsdinary circumstances and In the absence of a public necessity, is to be commended. But a failure to convene the representatives of. the people in congress in extra session 1 when it involves neglect of a public duty places the responsibility of such neglect upon the executive . himself. The condition of the public treasury, as has been indicated, demands the immediate consideration of congress., It alone has the power to provide revenues for the government. Not to convene it under such circumstances I -pan view In no other sense than the neglect of a plain duty. ' v I do not sympathize with the sentiment that- congress In session is dangerous .to our general business Interests. Its members are the agents of the people, and their presence at the seat of government in the execution of the sovereign will should not operate as an Injury, but a benefit. There could be no better time to put the government upon a eound financial and economic basis than now. The people have only recently^ voted that" thla should be done, and nothing is more binding upon the agents of their will than the obligation of immediate action. It has always warned to roe that the postponement.,of the meeting of congress until more than a year after it haa been chosen deprives congress tod" often of the Inspiration of the popular will and the country of the corresponding benefits. It ,is evident, therefore, that to postpone action in the presence of so greaA a necessity would be unwise on the part bf the executive because unjust tpxthe interests of the people. Our arfuons now will be freer, from mere/partisan consideration that if the Question of tariff revision waa postponed!) until the regular eesaion of -eon- greasy We are nearly two years from a' congressional election, *nd politics cannot s\? greatly distract us as if such contest was Immediately pending. We can approach the problem calmly an<$ patriotically, without fearing n.% gt~ feet upon tut early election. Our wfa.o may f t-irr frrn-t f. further »inr'>rt'»fnt K!ifc-«i.

In view of these considerations I 9h»H deem It my duty AS Prenld*nt to •x>nvene congress In extraordinary session on Monday, the 15th day of March, 1897. In conclusion, I congratulate the lountry upon ttfe fraternal spirit of the people and the manifestation of good will everywhere so apparent, The re- oen-t elestkm not oriiymost fortunately demonstrated the obliteration of sectional or geographical lines, but to some extent also the prejudices which for years have distracted our councils and marred .our true greatness as a nation. The triumph of the people, whose verdict Is carried into effect today, is not the triumph bf one section, nor wholly of one party, but of all sections and all the people. The north and south no longer divide on the old lines, but upon principles and policies; and In this fact eurely every lover of the country can find cause for true felicitation. Let us rejoice In and cultivate this spirit; it is ennobling and will be both_a gain and^_ blessing^ toi^our be- It will be my constant aim to do nothing and permit' nothing to be done that will arrest or disturb this growing sentiment of unity and co-operation, this revival of esteem and affiliation which now animates so many thousands In both the old and the antagonistic sections, but I shall cheerfully do everything possible to promote and Increase It. Let me again repeat the words of the oath administered by the chief Justice, which, In their respective spheres, BO far as applicable, 1 would have all my countrymen.observe: "I will faithfully execute the office of President of th<* United States, and will, to the boot of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States." This is the obligation I have reverently taken before the Lord most high. To keep it will be my single purpose; my constant prayer—and I shall confidently rely upon the forbearance and assistance of all the people In the discharge of my solemn responsibilities.' 1 As'the chaplain closed Vice-President Hobart addressed the senate for the first time, speaking in strong, well- modulated tones. He said: Senators: To have been elected to preside over the senate, of the United State's is a distinction which any citizen would prize, and the manifestation of confidence which it implies'is an honor which I sincerely appreciate. My gratitude and loyalty to the people of the country to whom I owe this honor and my .duty to you as well demand Buch a conservative, equitable and con- eclentlous construction and enforcement of your rules as shall promote the well-being and prosperity of the people, and at the same time conserve the time-honored precedents and established traditions which have contributed to make this tribunal the.most distinguished of the legislative bodies of the world. .-. , ' In entering upon, the duties of the office to which" I have been fchosen I feel . a' peculiar delicacy, for I- am aware that your oody, with whom for a time I will be "associated, has had but a small voice In the selection of its presiding officer, and -that-I-am~ca.lled T upO!nuta.^ conduct .your- 'deliberations,-while not perhaps your choice in point of either merit or fitness. . - , It will be my constant effort to aid you, so far- as I may, in all reasonable expedition of the business of the senate, r, ~belle~f that such expedition is the. hope of the countr A All the Interests of good government and the, advancement to-' ward a and better condition of things call for prompt and positive legislation at your hands.
