I a thursday december 6, 1000 it it said that up to within a year the residents of the quiet Little town of Mcconnelsville had to Send a Telegram whenever they wanted to Nee something go fast. Within the last few months however a a bucket shop dignified by the App probative title a aboard of Exchange a has been established and so rapidly has it swept the hard saved earnings of its patrons into its capacious maw the Telegraph office has been boycotted by the ambitious citizen who wanted to see a things go the name a aboard of Exchange was a Lucky hit for the management As it is sufficiently comprehensive for the moral citizen who does not believe in gambling to hide behind hence some of the Best citizen of the town Are number among the patrons of the president s message. The president s message was delivered to Congress at two o clock monday. It is an instrument of about 20,000 word and is a Complete history of the momentous times this country has passed through since the president s last message. The chinese trouble is taken up first and is exhaustively treated from the beginning to the present. In conclusion of the chinese matter the message says a the matter of indemnity for our wronged citizens is a question of of rave concern. Measured in Money alone a sufficient reparation May prove to be beyond the ability of China to meet. All the pokers concur in emphatic disclaimers of any purpose of aggrandizement through the dismemberment of the Empire. I am disposed to think that due compensation May be made in part by increased guarantees of Security for foreign rights and immunities and most important of All by the opening of China to the equal Commerce of ail the world. These views have bean and will be earnestly advocated by our in foreign affairs it is recited that our country Matie an enviable showing at the Paris exposition. The administration is in favor of restricting the Sale of liquor to All uncivilized Peoples especially in the Western Pacific. Good will prevail in Germany and our life insurance companies May now operate in Prussia. Our Friendly relations continue with great Britain. Japan has decidedly strengthened its relations with us and other countries by its co opera Tion in the chinese affair. The nicaraguan government shows a disposition to Deal freely with the canal question either in the Way of Neotia Lions with the United states or by taking measures to promote the waterway. Satisfactory Progress has been made toward the conclusion of general treaty of peace with Spain. A commercial arrangement will Likely follow. Our claims upon the government of Turkey for injuries suf feted by american citizens gives Promise of satisfactory settlement the consular service is commended for obtaining a wide Range of in formation As to the industries and Commerce of other countries and the opportunities there afforded for introducing the sate of our goods. The surplus revenues of the government for the year ending june 30 were a tardy eighty millions a pleasing contrast to the six preceding years when an aggregate deficit 2h4 millions is noted. Our foreign Trade shows a remarkable increase. A reduction of the internal Revenue tax is recommended. Congress is again urged to take immediate action on measures to promote american shipping and foreign Trade. It is again recommended that Congress take Early action to remedy such evils As might be found to exist in connection with combinations of capital organized into trusts. Former recommendations in regard to the Philippines Are reiterated. Civil government Bas been established in Porte Rico and a similar government is being provided for Cuba. A Cable is recommended to connect this country with Hawaii and on to Manila. It is believed that tie president should be Given Power to increase the army to 100,0p0 so Long As the affairs in Cuba and the Philippines remain As they Are. The government justly appreciates the services of its soldiers and sailors by making pension payments Liberal beyond precedent to them their widows and orphans As is shown by the increase payment of 1107,077.70 during the past year. The closing paragraph is As follows a in our great Prosperity we must guard against the danger it invites of extravagance in government expenditures and appropriations and the chosen representatives of the people i doubt not furnish an example in their legislation of that Wise Economy which in a season of plenty husbands for the future. In this Era of great business activity and Opportunity caution is not untimely. It will not Abate but strengthen Confidence. It will not retard but promote legitimate Industrial and commercial expansion. Our growing Flower brings with it temptations and perils requiring constant vigilance to avoid. It must not be used to invite conflicts nor for oppression but for the More effective maintenance of these principles of Equality and Justice upon which our institutions and Hap Pinea depend. Let us keep always in mind that the foundation of our government is Liberty its superstructure peace a Washington letter Washington. Dec. 3.�?it was an extraordinary event for Congress to adjourn immediately after assembling on the first Day of the session but the cause was also extraordinary. In the deaths within a few months of senator Davis of Minnesota and senator Grear of Iowa Congress and the country met with an extraordinary loss and it was fitting that Congress representing the country should take advantage of the first Opportunity to publicly Honor their memory. Time is precious at this session of Congress which has so much important work that it ought to and that it Hopes to do but time can never be too precious for some of it to be used in honouring the memory of patriotic statesmen. This action on the part of Congress was in Accord with the wishes of president Mckinley. A a a naturally there Are differences of opinion among Republican leaders As to the legislative programme of the session but they Are mostly minor differences and All agree that it must be a session of hard work and the conferences now going on will result in an agreement upon a programme and in United Effort to carry it out with no unnecessary delay. A a a senator Platt of new York said of the probable legislation of the session a i think the ship subsidy Bill the army reorganization Bill the War Revenue reduction measure and the Isthmian canal Bill will All pass. Personally i favor the Nicaragua canal Bill. I consider the Nicaragua route he Only practical one and i believe it will be one of the obstacles in the Way of Nicaragua canal legislation was removed when Secretary Hay and the no Carugan minister signed a treaty for their respective governments which concedes to the United states All necessary rights and privileges for the construction of the Nicaragua canal and negotiations for a similar treaty with Costa Rica Are now under Way. The Nicaragua treaty will at once be sent to the Senate for ratification As will the Costa Rica treaty As soon As it is signed. An Effort will also be made to get immediate action on the treaty with England popularly known As the Hay effete treaty which deals with the same subject. A a a senator Elkins thus briefed his ideas of what he hoped Congress would do a the first Bill i want to see passed is the Isthmian canal Bill. I want to see the canal built by american capital and controlled by the United states. I am not in favor of any treaty that will obstruct its passage. The canal is necessary for our Protection. Congress i believe will pass the ship subsidy Bill. The country needs More ships and i understand that it has been impossible for american shippers to secure vessels to carry abroad the goods actually engaged to fill out of town news Contini to Shou Kiu Hill Paus.
