President Harrison's Annual Delivered to Congress. * THE BUSINESS ADKIMSTRATION Show* a OratifjrlnK State of AfTairB- The Fiimncos of the Country in a Sat-lifaotory Condition-Tlio Federal ISlec-tlon taw. BANIB OF THE SEASON AT Close, Money-Ba%g; P^jc^s. Washington, Dec. 3.-The second session of the F ifty-first congress met at noon. A nnmber of new members of the house were sworn in. The president's annual message was read: A review of oar foreign relationsv shows cordial terms with all countries. Reviewing the business administration the president s&ys: The vast and incieusing business of the government has been transivcted by the several departments during the year with faithfulness, energy and success. The revenues, amounting to above $45i),000,000, have been collected, and disbursed without revealing, so far as I can ascertain, a single case of defalcation or embezzlement. An earn-est effort has been made to stimulate a sense of responsibility and public duty in all officers and employes of every grade, and the work done by tilt m has almost wholly escaped unfavorable criticism. The revenues of the government from all sources for the fiscal year ending June 80, 1890, were $41(3,908,080.55, and the total expenditures for the same period were $i}f58,fll8.684;52. The postal receipts, have not heretofore been included in the statement of these aggregates, and for the purpose of comparison, the sum of $60,882,097.93 should be deducted from both sides of the account. The surplus for the year, including the amount applied to the sinking fuud, was $105,344,496.03. The receipts for 1890 were $16,030,9;J.S. 79 and the expenditures $15,7!i9i871 in excess of those of 1889. The customs receipts increased $.\ 8:^5,842.88 and the receipts from internal revenue $n,72i>,l91.8i), while on the side of expenditures that for pensions was $19,-811^,075.90 in excess of the preceding year; The treasury statement for the current fiscal year, partly- actual and .partly estimated, is as follows:- Receipts from all sources, '$406,000,-000; total expenditures, $354,000,(*00; leaving a surplus of $.12,000,000 not taking the postal receipts into the account of either side. The loss of -revenue from customs for the last quarter is $25,000,000, but from this is deducted a gain of about $16,000,000 realized during the last four months of the year. For the year. 1802 the local esti-. mated receipts of $87-t,000,000 and the estimated expenditures $3U7,852,209.4iJ, leaving an estimated surplus of $1.5,-147,700.58, which, with a cash balance of $52,000,000 at the beginning of the year, will give $67,147,790.58 as the sum available for the redemption of outstanding bonds or other uses. The act directing coinage of silver bullion and issue of treasury notes thereon, approved July 14, 1S90, has been administered by the secretary of the treasury with an earnest purpose to get into circulation at the earliest possible dates the full monthly amounts of treasury notes contemplated by its provisions, and at the same time to give, to the market for silver bullion such support as the law contemplates. The recent depreciaticm in the price of silver has been observed with regret. The rapid rise in price which anticipated and followed the passage of the act was influenced in some degree, and was fol-lowed by speculation; and the reaction is part of the result of the same cause and part of the recent monetary disturbances. The increase of money in circulation duriug the nineteen months has been, in the aggregate $08,886,813, or about $1.50 per capita, and of the increase ouly'f7,100,0i)0 was due to the. recent silver legislation. That .this substantial and needed aid given to commerce resulted in. an enormous redaction of the public debt and of the annual interest charge is a matter of increased satisfaction. There have been nur-chased and redeemed since March 4, 1889, 4 and 4J per cent, bonds to the amount of $ill,833,450, at- a cost of ta46,6?0,741, resulting in thereduction of the annnal interest charge of $8,967,-6(M), and a total saving of interest of $51,570,706. The report of the secretary of war exhibits several' gratifying resulta attained during ; the f yearwise'and nnostentatious methods.^ I concur in the recommeadations of the Beoretarjr that ;radequate :and�!regarf lar'' apprbi>riationa ' be>'oon^inaed for coast defense works,aitd''/ordn'anca' {dans have been' practically^'' agreed 1890, has been received withg�atan� deserved poimlaf favor. i Since March 4, HJ89, fcine new vessels have been put i'in commission and during thip Ajintei four more, including one monitor, will be added. The construction of the other vessels authorized is being pubhed, both in the government and private yards, with energy and watched; with the most scrupulous care., The eiliperiments conducted during the year fd test the relative resisting lower of armor plates have been so valuable as to attract great attention in Europe. { The several acts of congress looking to the' reduction of the larger Indian reservations, to the ntore rapid settlement of the Indians upon individual allotments and the restoration to the public domaia of lands in' excess oi their needs, have been largely carried into effect, so far as the work was confided to the executive. , Agreements have been concluded since March 4, 1889, involving the cession to the United States of abot(t 14,726,-000 acres of land. j i The policy outlined in my lo^t annual messaoe in relation to the pafcunting of lands to settlers upon the publico domain has been carried out in the administration of the land ofiice.  -f. The disability pension acfc.v^hioh was approved on the �.^7th of Jun4 last, has been put into operation as. rapidly as was practicable. The increased clerical force provided was selected and assigned to work, and a considerable part of tne force ennaged in the examinations in the field was recalled and added to the working force of the oiBce. The examination and adjudication of claims have by reason of improved methods beea more rapid than ever before. The anticipated .expenditure, while very large, will not, it is believed, be in excess of the estimates made before the enactment of .the law. The increasing numbers and influence of the non-Mormon poiiulation in Utah are observed with satisfaction. The recent letter of WilfOrd Woodruff, president of the Mormon church, in which he advised his people "to retrain from contracting any marriage forbidden by the laws of the lalad,'' has attracted wide attention, and it is hoped that its ioflaence will ife highly beneficial in restraining infractions of the laws of the United Stafcps. But the fact should not be overlooked that the doctrine or belief of the church that polygamous marriages are rightful and supported by divine revelation, remains unchanged. ; The admission of the states ' of Wyoming and Idaho to the Union are events full of interest and concrratula-tion, not only to the people of those states now happily endawed with a full participation in our. privileges and responsibilities, but to all our, irpeople. The work of the patent oflfico has won from all sources very high, com? mendation. .' The information given by the secretary o� agriculture of th� progress and prospects of the beet sugar industry is full of interest. It has already passed the experimental stage and is a commei> cial success. The area over wliichthe. sugar beet can be s'uccessruny- cultivated- is very large, and another field crop of great value is offered to the choice of the farmers.

The case of T. J. Middagh of Patterso.i, Pa., was the first case considered. Middagh bought from a man by the name of Doty of Minneapolis the bay mare Lady Capoul and under the name of Lady Upton she was entered in several races and won. Middagh pleads that at the time he was ignorant of the fiiot and now confesses to his guilt and offers to re fund the money as well as to pay all expenses incurred by the association. Decision reserved. A. J. Libby of Gardiner, Me,, who was expelled from the association for entering the mare So Long under various names in certain races in the vicinity of Boston, asked that he be readmitted to tlie association, pleading ignorance in extenuation of liis offense.

Robinson was taken out dead. Coughlin was taken out alive but died at the hospital. Lieut. DeMay and Pipeman Cullen were also caught by the wall, but their injuries wore not fatal. Four hundred hands are thrown out of employment. Maneled by a Saw. HuNTmaTON, Ind., Dec. 4. - A frightful accident occurred at Ireland, about eight miles from here. While Thomas Hudson, a young man, was sawing wood with a cut-off saw, the saw struck him below the left shoulder, ranging downward, and inflicting a wound twelve or thirteen inches in length that may prove fatal" The saw severed five ribs. ^ and opened his ab dominal cavities so that a portion of his intestines and stomach as large as a man's head protruded. The younir man, after being hurt, walked a short distance, holding his intestines in his hand. Haas $c Huebsch, -BEALEllS in- HARDWARE, h STOVES, TiN>vaue, CuTLEKYj Ambiunition, Etc., Etc.

MUTUAL 3|||AL� poin'tment in the clas5ified service wi fidelity and impartiality, and the service has been increasingly satisfactory. I congratulate the congress and tne country upon the passage at the first session of the Fifty-first congress of an unusual number of laws of very high importance; that the results of this legislation will be the quickening and enlargement of our manufactaring industries, larger and better markets for our bread stuffs and provisions, both at home and abroad, more constant em-Dloyment and better wages for our working people, and an increased snp-')ly of a safe currency for the transac-ion of biisiness, I donot doubt. There is neither wisaom nor Justice in the suggestion. that the subject of lariff revision shall be oiiened before this law has had a fair trial The reciprocity clause of the tariff act wisely and in effect opens the way to secure a large reciprocal trade in exchange for the: free i admission to our ports of certain products. I desire, to repeat with added urgency the recom.mondations contained m my last annuMj message in relation to the development of American steamship lines. I earnestlv: renew my recommendation tuat the salaries of the j udges of the United States district courts be so readjusted that none of them shall receive less than $5,000 per annum. The enactment of a national: bankr ruptlaw I still regard as verydesirable. I also renew xay recommendation in favor of legislatioi^affording just copyright protection, for foreign, authors on-afooting of reciprocal advantage for authors abroad. It may still be possible for this congress to inaugurate by suitable legisla-tioui a movement: looking - to iunitorm-i ityand increased isafetyr in the use of couplers and brakes upon freight trains engaged ip inter-state, commerce. ^ The subject of the couRervation and ieqnal distribution of the.>/water:,supply 6i-the,;'arid. law ha8,m?ipi(fe8ted"itself in n^anyf-tiarts "of the comity "and itswhplesqroo iestraintsK!
