It should all be put upon an <§n<Jurlng baala, not subject to easy attack, nor Its stability tb doubt or dispute.

Therefore. 1" believe It necessary to devise a system which, without dl- tiMnttthing the circulating- medium or < offering a premium for Its contraction, will present a remedy for these arrangement*, which, -temporary In their nature, -mlgh't well In the years of our prosperity have been displaced by wiser ta from ta**8 tipyft foftsifh the United States fof s«6 Aftd a^oldlnf fdr lh* ritoSt Jjfttt every form 6t direct llxft- tidfi, ext«fit ih tiftie tst war, the' coiift- try is c»aMy op'pbasd to any tiS&HSss addftioM to th« *ufajeet9 of Ifttefti&l t4$fttl6h, &M is eo«fnltte-d by ill 1«- cst popular utterance to the system of tariff taxation. thefe can be no, misuhdei'standing, flthef, about the principle up*oh which this tariff taxation «hali be levied. Nothing Has ever been made piaifler at a general election than that the controlling principle in thp raising: of rev- shiie on Imports Is ZeftloiiS care for the American Interests and American la^ bof. The • people nave declared thftt such legislation Should be had as will give ample protection and rnent to tH« influSlMes ahd ttte of ofir dmjilitry. It Is, thefefOt*. earnestly hoped And expected that congress will, at the earliest practicable mottifittt, enact revenue legislation that shall be falf, reasoftable. cohservattVc* and just, and which, while supplying sufficient revenue fdr 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 voice 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 beeti the firmest prop of the treasury. The passage of such a law or laws would strengthen the credit of the government both at home and abroad, anil 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. itw* tihmtH fct f«rtf»«¥ improtsd to the constant pfomotleti of a sftfef, t Belief and a rilthet- cttitenshif).

Illiteracy must be banished from the land If we shall attain that high destiny as the foremdst of the en- i*if. j Adequate revenue secured, but uot-Until then, can .we outer upon such changes In our fiscal laws as will, while Insuring, safety and volume to our money, no longer impose upon the government the necessity of maintaining BO large a gold reserve; with 'its attend- unt-and Inevitable temptations to speculation. Most of our financial laws tae> the outgrowth of experience and T trial and .should 1 not be amended without Investigation and demonstration of the Wisdom of the proposed changes. We must be sure wo are right and "make haste slowly." . If, therefore, congress In Its' wisdom shall deem It expedient to create a coin- mission to take under early 'consideration tho revision of our.colnia.ire, bank- Ing and currency laws, «nd i?lve them that exhaustive, careful ,-'• and dlspas- eionatq examination that their Importance demands. T shall cordially concur In sunn action. If such power Is vested in the Pipslclent it Is my purpose to appoint -a commission 'of, prominent, ' well-informed citizens of different parties -who will command public confidence, both on account of their ability and special fitness for the work. Business experience and' public training may,thus b& combined and the patriotic »eaj of tho friends of the country'be so directed that such a "report- .will be ' made,as to receive the support of all' lufllttt arid our finance's cease to b.e the subject of mere partisan contention. The experiment Is, at all events, worth a trial, and, hi my opinion, it. can but provq beneficial to the entire country. International Illuiufiillifim. The question of international bl- . metalllfim will Imvfi early and earnest attention. It will be my constant endeavor to secure It by ..'co-operation with the other great: commercial powers of the world. Until that condition Js.realized when the parity between our gold and silver money spring's from and is supported by the relative value of the two metals the value of the silver already coined and of that which may hereafter be coined must be kept constantly at par .with gold by every resource at our bommand. The credit of the government, the integrity of its currency and the inviolability of its obligations must' be preserved. -This •was the commanding- verdict of the people, and It will not be unheeded. Economy Is demanded' in »>very branch of the government at all times, but especially in periods like Uie present-depression of business and distress among- the people, Tim severest 'econ- ,omy must be observed in all public expenditures, and extravagance stopped , wjioreyer, It .Is. found, *nnd '• prevented. ,where,yerjn the future it may be de-" ,_Ye(pged. If U}p rev&ftics'are'to reVnalji In the revision of the tariff especial attention shoul:! be given to the re-enactment' and' extension of the. reciprocity 'principle* of' tho 'law of i 1890, under which so great a stimulus was given tb our foreign trade In new and advantageous markets, for our surplus agricultural and manufactured products. The brief trial 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 now 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 lost four years has fallen with especial severity upon 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 bo a relief to both. No portion of, our population is more, devoted, to the Institutions of free g-overnment 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 ail. The depressed condition of Industry on the farm and in the mine «nd 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 he taken to' decrease rather than Increase our public 'expenditures: Business, conditions are, not th^.most prom-, th.e only relief that can come must be from decreased expenditures. . the present must not become tlie permanent condition of the government, It' Jigs been our uniform practice to retire, not Increase, our outstanding obligations, and this policy must again be resumed and vigorously enforced. Our revenues should always be large enough tq meet with e»»e and promptness not, only our current, needs and th« principal and. interest of the public debt, but to make proper and liberal provisions for that jnost. deserving- bpfly, of t public, creditors, the soldiers , and the widows and or- ho ave pie pensioners of the It 'will take time to restore the -'prosperity of former years. If we cannot promptly attain it, we can resolutely turn our faces In that direction and aid its return by friendly legislation. However troublesome the situation may apepar, congress will not, I am sure, be found lacking In disposition :>r ability to relieve it, ao far 'as legislation tan do so. V,rhe restoration of confidence and the revival of business, which mnri of all .parties so much desire, depend more largely upon the prompt, energetic and Intelligent action .of; congress than .upon any other single agency affecting the situation. Dutlen of CUizeii8hl|i, ; It JH Inspiring, too, to remember that no great emergency In -the one hundred and plght years of our eventful national life has evcjr -arisen that lias not been met . with wisdom anfl courage by the American' people, with fidelity to their, best interests &nd-;hlgheBt destiny and to the honor of th« American name. These years of glorious history have exalted mankind and advanced the- pause of freedom throughout the worlti and Immeasurably strengthened the precious free Institutions which we enjoy. The people love anil will sustain the<je institutions.

Ifiquality 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 re- pub)le, but It is consoling -and tsncour- aglng to realize that free speech, a free press, free thought, free schools, the frfie ami unmolested right of religious liberty and worship and free and fair elections are clearer and more universally onjpyeit today than ever before. These guaranties must, be sacredly preserved and wisely strengthened, lightened nations of the World, Which, tinder Providence, We ought to achieve, Reform's. In the civil service must go on, but the change should be real and genuine, hot perfundory or prompted by a zeal In behalf of any T>art.y;, simply because It happens to be in power; As a member of congress I Voted and spoke in favor of the present law', and t shall attempt its enforcement in the spirit Iti which It Was enacted.' The purpose In view was to secure the most efficient service of the best ttum-.-tt.ho •would i accept appointment under the ffovernment, 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 It has been thus administered. Congress should give prompt attention to the restoration of our American merchant marine, once tlie pride of the seas In all the great ocean highways of commerce. To niy mind, few more Important subjects HO Imperatively demand Its Intelligent consideration. Tlie United States lias progressed with marvelous rapidity In every field of enterprise and endeavor, until we have' become foremost in nearly all the great linen of Inland trade, commerce and industry. Yet, while this Is true, our American merchant marine has been steadily.••declining"until It ,1s now lower, both > I n tli e" ilercBSitttiec oP .tonn age < and tho number of vessels employed; than it was prior to the civil war. Commendable progress lias been made of late years In tho 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- Ing trade to foreign countries. The question Is one that appeals both to our business necessities and tlu> patriotic aspirations of a great people. Foreign Policy. It lias been the policy of .the .United. States since the foundation of the ffov- ernment to cultivate relations of peace and amity with all the nations of the world, and this accords my conception of our duty now. We have cherished the policy of non-interference with the affairs of foreign governments, wisely inaugurated by Washington, keeping ourselves free from en- tangloment either as allies or foes, content to leave undisturbed with them tho settlement of their own domestic concerns. Tt will be our aim to pursue ti firm anil 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 as:well as lo. cal : or 'individual difference. ' '. ,tUe shouM not bo per»"un bejiinfl, or Increase its , >n tlmes^ .like- the present'.

The latter resolution was accepted as the basis of negotiations with us by the British house of .commons in :IS98, and upon our Invitation a treaty of arbitration between th* United States . • and -Great.

AgaJn, whatever action congress may take will be given a fair pportunlty for trial before the peopl* re celled to pass judgment upon it, and this t consider a great essential to the rightful nhd lasting settlement of the tjueAtloh. In View of these considerations I shall deem It my duty as President to convene congress in extraordinary session ofl Monday, the 16th day of March. IS97. lit conclusion, 1 congratulate the uutilrjr upoh the fraternal spirit of the people nnd the manifestation of good Will, everywhere so apttAjfent. The fe* cent election hot only most fortunately demonstrated the obliteration of sectional or geogra-phlcai Jlnes, but to some extent also the iifejudlces 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 of 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 surely every lover of the country can find cause for true felicitation. Let us rejoice In and cultivate this spirit; It Is ennobling and wlllb* both a gain and blessing to our beloved country. 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 anil 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-chlef justice, which',-in their respective spheres, so far as applicable, I would have all my countrymen observe: ' "I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will, to the best 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 dln- charg-e of my solemn; responsibilities.
