The Pretident'i Menage. The Proaldoni'o measago, which we publish today, is a calm, dispassionate recital of tbo events occurring during tbe paet year. The largest portion o! tbe meaaage is a historical review o the events in iho war between Hpaln and America. It la a moat interesting dJcumenl, prepared in President Me Klnley'H lucid and Instructive style Its reading In both liouaea of Oonur was listened to with earnest attention It wlJ be read by Iho general public In a similar manner. The President, In Ibe message, does not givu hi: views as to tbe government for the Philippines or Porto Hico, preferring to wait until tho treaty o poaco la signed, hinting that then ho may give Oougresa and tho country tho benefit of his (.thoughts. President MoKln ley does not thrust hlmsolf up jn Congress. He IH too far-sighted uud cle ver. lie recognizes that to Congress belongs tbe right of nuking such terms ao are neooss&ry to rogul ite tbo new colonies or dependencieu. He plainly states that until Oongresx makes aucli regulations tho oolonlos must ba bfcld by military occupation In reference to Ouba tbo Prualdent suys that American troops will remain in Ouba to such tlmo as tho Cubans can organize a government for thnm solves, and that the Americana w'ill aid them to that end, in accordance with tho plodgei inado whon tho war was begun. Those arc tho most in taroBtlng foaturoa of I/ho Proaldoni'd messaKo. It Is one of tbo longoat, If not the longest, tnosaagea over sent to OongrosH, and nil aubjocts In coiinec tlon with the government of thu conn try are treated. There w.ta little crit k'lim passed on the mesmigd by ullhor Democrats or Republicans, Nimrly all tbe Congressmen recognlxud It aa a wise aiid conservative document- the words of a man who w&i careful In nil bis acts, and sought only the best good of tbe entire nation. That Indictment of the Governor. Auent tho Indictment of Governor Tanner by the Macouplu county grand jury, the Chicago Ititer-deean takes tbe same position on tho question as was taken by the Tisi.uiiitAi'U on tbo d«y after tbo indictment, as follows: Tbe "failure and refuial" to send troops Into Maooupln county, which was the offense) uhurgad, \tuu oleurly the exorcise of that uutborlty which Che dt'ite ezprest>ly puts Into tho bauds 01 tbe Governor, lit) may err in its exercise, for no ono IH Infallible, but tbe constitution and tha IHWB ol the atntn exprcesly olotliu the Governor wllb uutuorlly to exercise, without 'ear or favor, power to refuse or comply with such calls.

If for no other reason than lo secure the release of prisoners and the restoration of trade between Spain and the United State*. There has been no evidence of any friction between the American commissioners. It Is supposed. In fact It is known, that In tht-Ir own sessions they have differed about some points and have discussed the?* at length, but whenever It came to the point of action In the Joint commission the Americans were united. The last report received from them at the state department was unanimous, bearing the signature of every member of the commission. _ _ DEMANDED *85O,OOO. Captain General of Cuba Failed to Get It from a Bank. Havana. Dec. 6.— The straits of the Spanish authorities for nv.ncy gave rls» to a sensational episode last week Captain CaBtellanoa went in person In Hie Spanish Bank of Cuba and demanded 1850.000. He was accompanied by subordinate officials. After making the demand the captain general offered a receipt or due bill of the government. The president of th» bank declared that It had not the casn ft> meet the demand. The captain general directed the cash drawers to be opened by his subordinates. This was done but no money was obtained. A meeting of the directors was then called. Instead of finding means to satisfy the government, they Indorsed the rufusal of the president to supply funds. Other financial Institutions support Its position. The Spaniards and Cubans continue to clash. The other day a Cuban child. who was singing a Cuban hymn, was beaten to death in Genois street by a Spaniard. Some persons interfered and Captain Call, an American officer, arrested the Spaniard and delivered him to the police. The Spaniard was discharged shortly afterward by District Judge Balen. The report spread that the Judge had been bribed, and a crowd of Cubans gathered to lynch the Span- lard. The police saved him. after a long struggle. _ ANNEXATION OF CUBA. Subject Crops Oat at a Banquet Given by Hobert B. Porter. Santiago de Cuba, Dec. 6.— Robert B Porter, the spsclal commissioner of the United States to Cuba and Porto Rico, gave a forewell luncheon at the Venus cafe at which twenty-five guests were present, Including representatives of the army and navy, commercial and mining Industries, etc., and the British and French consuls. The affair was not Intended to be anything more than a social gathering but the party speeches made- It apparent that twenty-one of the guests were In favor of Cuba being annexed to the United States. Robert Mason, the British consul, and who represented large business Interests, spoke In favor of the continuance of the present good government of tha Island by the American officials. Mr. Porter waa diplomatic In his utterances and refused to be drawn Into any direct statement on the subject under discussion. but the enthusiasm with which every Indirect allusion to the subject of annexation was greeted plainly showed the sentiment of the party. Mr. Porter received Impressions while here which caused him to cable to Washington a request that no action be taken for the present on the recommendations which he had made In regard to proposed changes and an answer was received that the matter would be held In abey ance. Mart Change Ihe fonntltutlon. Ann Arbor, Mich., Dec. 6. -Andrew C. McLaughlin, professor of constitutional law In the literary department of the University of Michigan, recently said In speaking of the Philippines: "If the United States undertakes to do for the Philippines what England has done for her colonies, It will require a change of the American constitution, for good, substantial government can be maintained only through military rule. Thin would only be possible by vastly In creasing the constitutional powers of the president." _ Huppljr of Tent* Atlcc|unte. Washington.
