The Gor emment of Corea has generously aided the efforts of the United states minister to secure Saita ble premises for the use of the legation As the conditions of our diplomatic inter course with Eastern nations demand that the legation premises be owned by the represented Poneto.

Tho negotiation of this Coli nation has for a Timo postponed the prom cution to certain claims of our chm suf which were deca Fox to be Witlip omit Ali is at present powerless to organize a per it Oer repro mentation of our vast National interests in this direction. I have in several previous messages referred to this subject. It seems to me that a statute giving to Tho executive general discretionary authority to accept such invitations and to appoint honorary commissioners without salary and placing at the disposal of the Secretary of state a Small fund for defraying their reasonable expenses would be of great Public Utility. Imok National maritime. This government has received an official note that the revised International Reainu Ioas for preventing collisions at sea Bas been accepted by All the leading maritime Powers except the unit of states and came into Force on the is of september last for the due Protection of our Shippen a interests. The provisions of our statutes should at once be brought into conformity with those Rega lations. Copyright. Tho i Estton of securing to authors composers and trusts copyright privileges in this country in return for rec Ioro Cai rights abroad a one that May justly Challenge your attention. It is True that a convention will be necessary for fully accomplishing this result but until Oon Greis shall by statute no the extent to which foreign holders of copy igbo shall be Here privileged it Bias been deemed inadvisable to negotiate through Stich conventions. For this reason the duped states was not represented at the recent conference at Berne i recommend that the scope of the neutrality Laws of the United states be so enlarged As to Over All paint acts of hostility committed in our territory and aimed against the peace of a Friendly nation. The existing statutes prohibit the fitting out of armed expeditious and restrict the shipment of , though the enactments in the latter respect were not framed with regard to International obligations. But simply for the Protection of ass sender travel. All these statutes were intended to meet special emergencies that had already Arisen. Other emergencies have Arisen since and modern ingenuity supplies Means for the organization of hostilities without open a Cort to armed vessels or to filibuster no parties. I see no reason Why overt preparations in this country for who commission of criminal acts such As Are Here under a Side ration should not to alike punishable whet Lier such acts Are intended to be committed la our own country or in a foreign country with which we Are at peace. Tho prompt and thorough treatment of this question is one which intimately concerns the National Honor. Naturalization Laws. Our existing naturalization Law also need revision. Those sections relating to persons r within the limits of the United Duites in 179 Audij is have not Only a historical interest Bat Section 3,1 2 the quiz Waship of Trio children of naturalized parents is ambiguous in its terms and partly obsolete. There Are special provisions of Law favouring the natural Zirion of those who serve in the army or in merchant vesels while no similar privileges Are granted those who serve in Tho Navy or Marine corps Quot an uniform Rule of naturalization such As the Constitution . Elioud among other things clearly Detine the status of per Lotsbom within the United states subject to a Orein Power Section l,93iand of minor children of fathers who have declared their intention of Bce minor Cit Zoas but a Avo Ftp a Euto perfect their and it Mig tit be Wise to provide for a Central Bureau of registry wherein to Lould be file Ltd authenticated Tran scripts of every record of naturalization in the several Federal and state courts and to make provision also for the or cancellation of such record in cases where fraud had been Praet iced upon the court by the applicant himself or where to bad or forfeited his acquired citizenship. A just and us Forni Law in this respect would Fatien Gyben the hands of the govern meet in protecting its c it zeus abroad and would Pavo the Way tor the conclusion of treaties of natural leation with foreign countries. and consular service. Tho legislation of last session Ert acted in the diplomatic and consular service certain changes Aud reductions which have been productive of embarrassment. The population and commercial activity of our country Are steadily on the increase and Are giving Rise to now varying and often delicate relationships with other court Rio a. Our foreign establishment now embraces nearly double tue area of operations that it did Twenty years go. The conf lament of such a service within the limits of the expenditures then established is not. It seems to me in a x Danco with True Economy. A Community of 60,000,000 of people should he adequately represented in its inter co dose with foreign nations. A project. For the reorganization of the consular service and forecasting the scheme of extra territorial jurisdiction is now before you. If Tho limits of a Short session will not allow its full Oon Siderati i1 Trust you will not fail to Mike suitable provision for the present needs of the service. It has been customary to define in the appropriation acts the rank of Paoti diplomatic Osce to which a salary be Atti Icho l.

Tiik Meridian , the International Meridian Cou Ferencak. Lately convened in Washington upon the invitation of the government of the United states was com ponied of representatives o Twenty ave nations. The conference concluded its labors on the list of november having with substantial unanimity agreed upon the Meridian of Greenwich As the starting Point whence Longitude is to be computed through 180 degrees eastward and Westward and upon the adoption for All purposes for which it May lie found convenient of a Universal Day which shall begin at Midnight on the Inillar Meridian and whose hours shall be counted from Zero up to 24. The formal report of the Tranada Otsons of the coffer once will be hereafter transmitted to Congress International expositions. This government is in frequent receipt of invitations from foreign states to participate in International exhibitions often of great interest and importance. Occupying a a we do. An advanced position in the world s production and aiming to secure a profitable share tor our industries la the general competitive markets it is a matter of serious concern that the want of Means i for participation in these exhibit should so often exclude our products from Tho advantages enjoyed by those of other countries. During the past year the attention of Congress was drawn to Tho formal invitation in this regard tendered by Tho governments of England Houaard Belgium Germany and Austria.

Suspension of Silver co Inak a commented 1 concur with the Secretary of the Treasury in recommending the immediate suspension of the coinage of Silver dollars Aud of the issuance of Silver certificates. This is a matter to which in former communications i have More than once the attention of the National Siegl stature. It appears annually for the past six years there have been coined in compliance with the requirements of the act of february 28,1878. More than 27,000.030 Silver dollars. The number now outstanding is reported by the Secretary to be nearly 185,000,000, whereof but Little More than 44,000,000, or Liss than 22 per cent., Are in actual circulation. The Mere Exi Armce of this fact Beems to me to furnish of itself 8 cogent argument for the repeal of the statute Bleb Tias made such a fact possible but there Are Graver and other could rations that ten in the same direction the Secretary avows his a Kut Icelon that unless this coinage and the in Nancv of ii Ilver Cert lloy i e8 be suspended Silver is Likely at no Distant Day. To become our sole metallic Standard. The commercial disturbance and the impairment of National credit that would be thus occasioned can scarcely be overestimated i Hope that the Secretary s suggestions resp Setlur the withdrawal from circulation of tie one Dollar and two Dollar notes will receive your approval. It is Likely that a considerable portion of the Silver now encumbering the vaults of the Treasury might find its Way into the Curr nay. While Trade dollars have ceased for the present at least to be an element of Active disturbance in our cd Reney system some provision should remade for their surrender to the govern meat in View of to Circum stances under we Sci they were coined and of the fact that they have never had a Legal tender Quality there should be offered for them Only a slight Advance Over their Bullion value. The Secretary in the course of his report considers the propriety of a edifying the designs of our sub Sldary Silver coins of so increasing their weight that they May Bear their due ratio of value of the Standard Dollar. Hia conclusions in this regard Are cordially approved. Internal Hev Kontje Tarut duties. In my annual message of 1832 i recommended the abolition of All excise tariffs except those re Ling to distilled spirits. I Nis ii Noi renewed. Incas these taxes should be abolished the revenues that will remain to the government will in my opinion not Only suffice to meet its reasonable expenditures but will afford a surplus Large enough to pc nit such a Tariff reduction As May seem to be advisable when the results of recent Revenue Laws and commercial treaties Snail have shown in what quarters these red colons can be most judiciously i fleeced. Another to opposed. One of he gravest of the problems which Appeal to the Wisdom of Congress for solution is the ascertainment of the most effective Means of increasing a or foreign Trade and Titus relieving the depression under Wii cd our industries Are now Langu Shing. The Secretary of Tho Treasury advises that the duty of this subject be entrusted in the first instance to a competent commission. While fully recognize la the considerations that May be urged against this course 1 am nevertheless of the opinion that upon the Sthole no other would be skely to effect Spoer Ier or better results. Our carrying Trade the portion of the Secretary s Robirt which con a rns the condition of our Shipp Lui merest i in not fall to command your attention.

One please of this subject is no especially prominent in Vieve of the Rascai by the a t of june 26, 1881, of All statutory provisions Art i trally compelling american vessels to carry mails to and from the United states. Am it is Nece it siry to make provision to the o veers of such vessels for performing tha service afer april. 1875, it is hoped the whole subject will receive Early consideration that Vdell Lead to the enactment of such measures for the revival of our merchant Marine As Tho Wisdom 0. Congress May devise cur Kyncy and Kosdi. The 3 per cent Bonds of the go Erna Cut to the amount of More thaa $100,000,003 Piave since my last annual message been redeemed by the Treasury. The Boud-3 of that Issue 3 ill outstanding amount to Little Over s200,d0,030, about one fourth of which will to retired through Tae operation of the sinking Iund during tha coming year. As these Bonds still Continuo the chief basis Lor the circulation of the banns the question How to Avert the contraction of the currency caused by their retirement is Onu of constantly increasing importance. It is eras to be generally concede 1 that the la.

The funds with which Tho works for the in Provo Mentor Rivers and harbours were prosecuted during the past year were derived from the appropriations of the act of August 2. 18i2, together with such Lew balances As were on Bend from previous appropriations. The balance in the Treasury sub-1ect to requisition july 1,1883, was �10,011,619.55, the amont appropriated during the fiscal year 1384 was. 81.319,631.627, and the amour t drawn from tue Treasury during the fiscal year was i 88, 228.70 ,51, leaving a balance of 831,125,806 in the Treasury subject to requisition july 1, 1881, coast Dei Ense a , the so rotary of War submit the report of the chief of engineers As to the practicability of protecting our important cities of the Seaboard by fortifications Aud other defontes Able to repel modern methods of attack. Tae time has now come when such defense can be prepared with Confidence that they will not prove abortive and when the possible result of delay in making such preparation if seriously Coni adored delay seems inexcusable for the most important cities those whose destruction or capture would be a National humiliation. Adequate defences inclusive of guns May be made by the gradual expenditure of 860,000,000, a sum much less than a victorious enemy a Oula Levy As a contribution. An appropriation of about one tenth of that amount is asked to begin the work Quot and i concur with the Secretary of War in urging that it to granted. The War department a proceeding with the Jou version of Usu Inch Smoothbore guns in eight Inch rifles by the tining of the former with tubes of forged or of coiled wrought Iron. Fifty guns will be thus converted within the year. This however does not obviate the be Cen Ity of providing Means for the a of traction of guns of the highest Power both for the purpose of coast defense and for the armament of War vessels. Ordnance Matt us. Itie report of the gun foundry Board appointed april 2.1883, in pursuance of the act of March 8, 1888, was transmitted to Congress in a special message of february 8. 1884. In my message of March 26, 1884, i called attention to the recommendation of the Board tha it the government should encourage the production of private steel works of the required material for heavy Canyon and that two government factories one for the army and one for the Navy should be established Lor the fabrication of guns from Euch material. No action having been taken the Board was sub sequently reconvened to determine More fully the plans and estimates necessary for i trying out its recommendations. It has received information which that there Are responsible steel manufacturers in this country who although not provided at present with the necessary Plant Are filling to construct the same Aud to make bids for 50dtrac .8 with the government for the Supply of the requisite material for the heaviest guns adapted to Modem warfare if a guaranteed order of sufficient magnitude accompanied by a positive appropriation extending to a series of years shill be made by Congress All doubts As to the feasibility of the plan toeing removed i renew my reach emendation that such action be taken by Congress As will air Able tie government to construct its own ordnance upon its own territory and so to provide the armaments demanded by considerations of National safety and Honor. A Strong word for lib Navy. The report of the Secretary of the Navy exhibits the Progress Bieh has been made on the new steel cruisers authorized by like sets of August 5, 1882, and March 3. 1883. Of the four vessels under contract one the Chicago of 4,500 tons is More Thon half Unia hed the at Luita 3,000 tons Hafi been successfully launched and ber machinery is now fitting the Boston also of 3,000 tons is ready for launching and the Dolphin Adisi Attoh Steamer of ton la ready for Dell Ery. Certain Adverse criticisms upon the designs of these cruisers Are discussed by the 8e try who insists that the correctness of thed Occlusions reached by the advisory braid and by the department has been demonstrate i by int develop ment in ship building abroad. The machinery of the Doi Ihle turreted monitors Quot Puritan Quot Quot terror Quot and Quot amp Hinte Quot contracted for under the act of March 3. 1883, was in process of construction. No work has been done during the past year on their Armor for Lack of necessary appropriation a fourth Monitor the Quot Monadnock Quot still remains Una Nisbet at the Navy Yard a California. It is recommended that Early Steps be taken to Complete these vessel and to provide also an Aram iii for the Monitor the recommendations of the naval advisory Bohtz approved by the department comprise the code traction of one steel Cruiser of 4.500 Tonia one Cruiser 01 3,000 ton two heavily armed gun boat one dispatch boat armed with Hotchkiss Cannon one aim died ram and three torpedo Boatti. The general designs All of which Are Calculi de to meet the existing wants of the service Are now Well advanced and the constr action of Tho vessels can be undertaken As soon As you shall or it the necessary authority. The set of Congress approved August 7, 1832. the removal to the United so ates of the bodies of lieutenant commander George w. Delong and his companion a of the Jeannette expedition. This removal Baa been Succes Lully by lieutenants Barber and . The remains were Tasen from their Graven in the Lena Delta in March 1883, and were retained at Yakutsk until the following Winter the season being Loo far advanced to admit of their immediate Tian port Avion. They arrived at new Yolk february 20,1884, where they were received with honors. In pursuance of the joint Reso Lution of Congress approved february 13,18s4, a a Vai expedition was fitted tit for the Relief of Lientje Jiant a. W. Greely United states army and of be part who bad been engaged under ids Kjin Mand in scientific observations at lady Franklin Bay. The Fleet consisted of the steam sealer thetis purchased in England the b�3ar, purchased at st. Johns n. A. And Tho Alert which was gear Only provided by the British government. Preparations for the expedition were promptly made by the Secretary of the Navy with the Active co operation of the Secreti iry of War. Commander George w. Coli in was placed in command of the Alert and lieutenant w. H. Emery in cd Jammand of the Bear. The thetis was entrusted to commander win held 8. Copley to whom also was assigned the of the entire expedition. Immediately upon its arrival at upe Navik the Fleet be an tie drag pious navigation of Melville Ray and in spite of every ohs tto Cle reached Littleton Island on june a a a a a for Dight earlier than any vessel had before attained that Point. On toe same Day i crossed Over to Cape Sabine where a lieutenant Greely and the other survivors of his party were discovered. After taking on Board the living and the Bodiee of the dead the Relief ships failed Forst Johns where tue arrived on july 17. They were appropriately at Portsmouth n. Hon August 1, and at now York on ingest h. One of the bodies was landed at the former place the others were put on Shore at governor s Island and with the except Lon of one which was interred in the National cemetery were forwarded thence to the destination indicated by friends. The organization and conduct of this Relief expedition reflects great credit Upu All who x it rebated to it Success. In i if the left to the stated messages that i shall have the Honor to transmit to the Congress of the United states i can not too strongly urge on Ita attention Tho duty of re.3toring our Navy As rapidly As possible to the High state of Elf Cliency which formerly characterized it. As the Long peace that has lulled is into a sense of fancied Security May at any time be disturbed it is Plain that the policy of strengthening this Arm of Tho service is dictated by considerations of use eco omy of just regard for our in tire Tranquility and 01 True appreciation of tha dignity and Honor of the Republic. Post office affairs. Tho report of the postmaster general acquaints you with the present condition and needs of the postal service. It discloses the Gratis flu. Fact that the loss of Revenue from the reduction in the rate of letter postage As recommended in Luy message of december 1s82, and effected by the act of March 3.188i. Has been much less Thau was generally anticipated. My of this reduction was based upon the belief that the actual falling off in receipts from letter postage for the year immediately succeeding the change of rate would he 83,000,000. It has proved to be Only 82,275,000. This is a trustworthy Iudica Tiou that the Revenue will soon be restored to its former volume by the natural increases of sealed correspondence. I confidently repeat therefore tha recommendation of my last annual message single rate postage upon drop tetters be reduced to one cent wherever the payment of two cents la now required by Law. The double rate is Only exacted at offices where the Carrier system a in operation and it appears that at the offices the increase in tax upon local letters the Cost not Only of its own collection and Cle livery but of the collection and delivery of All other mall matter. This is an inequality that out no longer to exist. 1 approve the recommendation of the postmaster general that the unit of weight in Tho rating of first class matter should be one ounce i Mead of one half ounce As it now is. In View of Mio statistics furnished by the department in May Well be doubt id whether the change would result in any loss of Revenue. That it would greatly promote the convenience of the Public is beyond dispute. The free delivery system has lately been applied to five cities Aud the toil number of offices in which it is now in operation is 159. shows that its adoption under proper Oon editions in equally an accommodation to the Public and an advantage to Tho ads Al ii ervice. It in More than self sustaining Aud for the reasons urged by the postmaster general Mav properly be extended. It is the opinion of that officer that it is proper to provide Means whereby it def Patch in dealing wit i letters in free delivery ocl Ces maybe secured by payment of Exira Ordin Ary postage. Tais scheme might be made eff calve by the employment of a special stamp whose Cost should be a mme curate with Tho expense of the extra service in siae of Large cities. Private express m>mpauie3 have undertaken to outstrip the government mail carriers by Afler Dong for the prompt Traus to ii Ion of letters better facilities than have hitherto been at the command of the Postof Tieje it has always been the policy of the government to discourage such enterprises and in no Tietter Way can that policy be niacin tailed than in. Supplying the Public with the most efficient mail service that with due regard to its own Best Intermix can be furnished for its a k Ommo Daviou. The witness and juror fee Eil the attorney general Renews the recommendation contained in his report of last year touching the fees of Witney sgt and jurors. He favors Radical changes in the fee Bill the adoption of a system by which attorneys and marshals of the United states should be compensated solely by salaries end the erection by the government of a Penitentiary for the confinement of attend Eric against its Laws. Of the varied governmental concerns in charge of the Interior department the report of its Secretary Pray ends an interesting summary. Among the topics deserving particular attention. 1 refer to his Obaer Vatious respecting our Indian affaire the Preemption of Timber culture acts the Iai Luro 01 Railroad companies to Lake title to lands granted by the government and the operations of the pension office the Patent office the census Bureau end the Bureau of education. Allusion has been made Alre Evjy to the circumstance that both As Between different Indian tribe and As Between indians and Whites the past year has been of unbroken peace. In this Cire Stince the president is glad to find Jubal fiction for the policy of the government in dealing with the Indian Neshon and in confirmation of views which were fully expressed in his first communication to the forty i it events Congress the Secretary urges anew the enactment of a statute for the punishment of crime committed on Indian reservations and recommends the pub be of the Bill now pending in the Bouse of representatives for the Purchase of a tract of 18,000 Square Miles from the Sioux reservation. Both these measures axe worthy of approval polygamy. I concur with him Al it in advising the repeal of the Preemption Law the enactment of statutes resolving the present Leeal complications touching lapsed Grants to Railroad companies and the funding of the debt of the of everal Pacific railroads under such guaranty As shall effectually insure us ultimate payment. The report of the Utah Comuni Ivision will be read with interest. It discloses results of recent a isolation looking to the prevention and punishment of polygamy in that territory. I still believe that if that abominable practice can be suppressed by Law it can Only be done by the most Radical legislation consistent with the restraints of the comte Tulou. I again recommend that Congress 8,s8ume absolute political control of the Terry wry of Utah and provide for the appointment of a commission with such governmental Powers As in its judgment May justly and wisely to put into their hands. A great schk5ie of Huici Predty. In the course of this communication reference has Mote than once been made to the policy of this government As regards the Extension of our fore tin Trade. It seems proper to declare the that should in my opinion underlie our National efforts in that direction Nie main conditions of the problem my be thus stated we Are a people of Mechai Clcil pursuits and Fertile in invention we cover a vast extent in territory Rich in Asri cultural pro clots and nearly All the a material necessary for manufacture we have a system of protective establishments More than Buffi Lieut to Supply our own demands the wages 0/labor Are also great the scale of living of our Artl Slan classes is Sulla As tends to secure their personal Comfort. And the developments of those higher morals find intellectual qualities that go to the making of citizens out system of tax and Tariff legislation is yielding a Revenue which is in excess of the present it jews of the government. These Are elements from which it is sought to devise a scheme by which without unfavourably changing the condition of the workingmen. Our Merchan t Marine shall be ranged from its enfeebled condition and new rms Keta provided for the Sale beyond our Borders of the manifold fruits of our Industrial enterprises. The problem is Complex and in be solved by no single measure of innovation for Reform. The countries of the american continent and the Adja sent islands Are for the United states the Nat iral markets of Supply and demand. It is from them that we should obtain what we do not product or do not produce in sufficiency and it is to them that the surplus productions of our Fields our Mills and our workshops should flow under conditions As will equalize or favor there in comparison with foreign Competition. Four paths of policy seem to Point to this end first a series of reciprocal commercial tra Tiei with the countries of America which shall Foster Between us Aud then an unhampered movement of Trade the condition of these treaties should be the free admission of such merchandise .13 this country does not produce. In return for Almi a Ion free or under a favored Schomo of duties of our Ovra products the benefits of such Enchant to apply on these goods carried under the Flag of the parties to the contract the removal on both a ides from Yessel so privileged of All tonnage dues Aud National imports so that their vessels May ply unhindered Between our ports Aud the other contracting Patles though without infringing on the reserved Home coasting Trade the removal or reduction of burdens on the exported products of those countries coming within the benefits of the treaties and the avoidance of technical restrictions and penalties by which our Intercourse with Hoie countries is at present hampered Sei oddly the establishment of the consular service of the United states on a salaried Ioc Ting. Per Mung the relinquishment of consular fees not Only its respects vessels under the National bag but Al Kas re�pect9 vessels of the treaty nations carrying goods entitled to the benefits of the treaties. Thirdly the enactment of measures to favor the construction and Moln tenancy of a steam car lying Marine under the Flag of Tho United . Fourthly the establishment of a uniform currency basis for the countries of America so that the coined products of our mines May Currula a on equal terms throughout the whole system of commonwealths. This would require a Raoul tary Union of America whereby the output of Tho Bullion producing countries and the circulation of those which yield neither Gold nor Silver could be adjusted in conformity with the Popup it Lon wealth and commercial needs of each. As Many of the countries furnish no Bullion to the common Stock the surplus production of our mines and mints might thus be utilized and a step taken toward the general re monetization of diver. To the accomplishment of these ends so far As they can be attained by separate treaties the nogo tons already concluded and now in Progress have been directed and the favor with which this enlarged policy has thus far been received warrants the belief that its operations will Era Long embrace All or nearly All the countries of this hemisphere. It is by no Means desirable however to tattle policy under consideration should be applied to these countries alone. The he Ashful Enlar area of our Trade with Europe Asia and Africa Nho Aid be sought by reducing Tariff burdens on Sincu of their wares As neither we nor the other american states Are fitted to produce and thus a Nabling ourselves to obtain in return a better Mart of for our supplies of food of raw materials and of the manufacturer in which we Excel. It seems that Many of the embarrassing elements in the great National conflict Bette 3n Protection and free Trade May this a get turned to Good account that the Revenue May be reduced so As no longer to overtax the people that protective duties May be retained without becoming burdensome that our shipping interests May be judiciously encouraged the currency fixed on a firm basis and above All such a Unity of interests is Tablit hed among the states of the american syst Enri As will be of great and Ever increasing advantage to them All. All treaties in the line of this policy which hive been negotiated or Are in process of Nago Patlon contain a provision deemed to be requisite under the clause of the Contti Sutlon limiting to the House of representatives the authority to orig in ate Bill for raising Revenue. Civil service Reform. On the 29th of february last i transmitted to Congress Tho first annual report of the civil Sor Tiee Comra Ision together with communications from the Heads of several executive departments of the government respecting the practical Workings of the Law under which the com Mialon has been acting. The Good results therein foreshadowed have been More than realized. The syst tra h to fully Tho expectations of its Friori is in Fec Curldy competent and faithful Public servants and in protecting the appoint ing of fincers of the government from tie pressure of personal Importunity and Iro n the labor of examining Tho claims and pretensions of rival candidates for Public employ Reut. The Law has had the unqualified support of t in president and of the beads of the several departments and the members of the commission have performed their duty with Zeal and Fidelity. Their report v ill shortly be sub tatted. And by such recommendations for enlarging the scope of the existing statute As shall commend themselves to the executive Aud t be com missioners charged with its administration. Wardino a bankrupt Law. To viev of the several and persistent demands throughout the commercial Community for a National bankrupt Law i Hope that Tho differences of sentiment which have hit Norto prove need Ita enactment May not outlast the present session. Asiatic cholera the pestilence which for the past two Yaar Flaa been racing in the cd untrue in of the East recently made its appearance in european poits with which we Aie in constant communication. The then Secretary of the Treasury in in Guance of a proclamation of Tho i Rosl Deno issued certain regulations restricting and for a time prohibiting the importation of rags and Tho admission of baggage of emigrants and of travel Era arriving from infected quarters. I it this course May have been without strict warrant of Law i approve the recommendation of the Secretary that Congress take action in the premises and 1 Albo Sci commend the Adon ton of 8uch me inures a will be Likely to Ward off the dreaded epidemic and to i Togato its severity in Case it shall unhappily extend to our shores. District of Columbia. The annual report of the commission edit of the District of Columbia reviews of the operations of the several departments of the music opel government. 1 ask your careful consideration of its suggestions in respect to legislation especially commending such As relate to a revision of the civil and criminal code the performance of labor by persons sentenced to imprisonment in the jail the construction and occupation of wharves along the River front and the erection of a suitable building for District offices. I recommend that in recognition of the eminent services of Ulysses s. Grant late of the armies of the United states and twice president of the nation that Congress Confer upon him a suitable pension. I am certain of the a Neasure. A that seem to me Necee Saiy and expedient i have cow in abeyance to the Constitution recoup a needed for your adoption. As respects others of no less import an 3e. I shall Content myself with renewing Tho recommendations already made to the Congress without restating the grounds upon which such recommendations were based. The preservation of forests in the Public Domain the granting of government lanes for popular education the amendment of fhe Fei Loral Constitution so a to make effective Tho disapproval by the president of particular items in appropriating Bills the enactment of statutes in regard to the filling of vacancies in the presidential office and the determining of vexed questions respecting presidential inability Are measures which May justly receive your serious considerations. As Tho time draws nigh when i am to retire from the Public service i can nor refrain from expressing to Tho members of the National legislature with whom i have been brought into personal and of Ial Intercourse my sincere appreciation of their Una Allong Courtesy and of their harmonious cd operation with the executive in so Many Raea aures calculated to promote the Best interests of the nation and to my fellow citizens generally i acknowledge a deep sense of obligation for the support which they have accorded me in my administration of the executive department of the government.
