THE MESS AGE An Able Paper from Pf esident Harrison. UPON OUR FOREIGN RELATION. The policy outlined in my lost an- nual message in relation to the PATENTING OK LAXDK TO SETTLERS Upon the public domain baa been car- ried out in the administration of the Land Office. The purpose has been to perfect the titles of honest settlers with such promptness that the value of entry might nut lw swallowed up by the expense and extortions to which delay subjects the claimant. The examination and adjudication of pension claims have by reason of improved methods been more rapid than ever Increasing numbers and influence of the non-Mormon population in coat of, living. Still there is a largely increased foreign trade open to u without bartering our home marke for such products as onr people can supply. THE RECIPROCITY- CLAUSE, Of the Tariff Act wisely and in effec' opens the way to sec...e a large recip- rocal trade in exchange for the fiee admission to our ports of certain pro ducts. The right of an independent nation to make reciprocal trade con- cessions is established, and does not impair the comity that is due other or what is known as the favoied nation clause so gener ally found in commercial treaties. The Tariff Fully and Discussed. Ably Federal Election Bill Favored by the President. Utah are observed with j What is given to one for an adequate The recent letter of the President o agreed consideration cannot be claimed tiie Mormon Church, in which he ad The FreHident'M Stensmge. The following is a liberal synopfis of President Harrison's "message, de- livered to Congress at noon to-day. It is an able document and should be carefully read by everybody WASHINGTON, December t, 1890. To the Senate and House of Rep- The vast and increas- ing business of the Government has been transacted by the several depart- ineots during the year with faithful- ness, energy and success. The reve- nues amounting to about four hundred and fifty million dollars have been collected and disbursed without re- vealing a single case of defalcation or embezzlement. Of the Pan-American conference the President says: This important con- vocation marks the most interesting and continental epoch in the history of the Western Hemisphere. The killing of General linrundia on board the Puciflc Mail steamer Acapulco, while anchored in transit in the port of San Jose de Guatemala, demanded careful inquiry. Tr.e consent of the representatives of' the United States was sought to effect his seizure. The captain refused to give up his passen- ger without a written order fiom the U. S. Minister. The latter forwarded the desired letter, on condition that General Barundia's life should be spared. General Burundia resisted capture and was killed. It being evi- dent that Minister Mizner had ex- ceeded the bounds of his authority in intervening in compliance with the demands of the Guatemalan authori- ties, in violation of precedent, this Government was constrained to dis- avow Mr. Mizner's act, and recalled him from hid post. The Nicaragua canal project is making most encour- aging progress. OUR HKLATTONB WITH CHINA Have been the subject of much corres- pondence. A proposal has been made to Mexico and Great Britain to con- sider the regulation of the passage of Chinese laborers across our Southern and Northern frontiers. The differences between the United States and Great Britain, touching the fur-seal question in Uehring sea, is not yet adjusted, as will bo seen by the correspondence which will soon be put before Congress. It is sincerely hoped that before the opeuing of an- other sealing season some arrange- ment may be effected which will us- tnire to the United Slates the property right derived Irom Russia, which was not disregarded by any nation for more than eighty years preceding the outbreak of the present troubles. The questions Involved in a revision of the treaty relations with Japan are grave and aelicute, and it is hoped the present friendly relations between Japan and the United States will not be affected. The friendship between our country and Mexico has never been more con- genial than now. The Mexican rail- way system will be enhanced to u de- gree almost impossible to forecast, if it should become a link in the projected inter-continental railway. I recom- mend that our mis-don to the City of Mexico be rai.scd to a first-class one. REGARDING RECIPROCITY, The President says: Sp3cial ar- rangements in regard to commerce, based upon the reciprocity provision of the recent tariff Act, would operate most beneficially for the United States and Spain. Some months' further trial will be necessary to determine the permanent effect of the recent legislation on silver values, but it is gratifying to know that an increased circulation has ex- erted a most beneficial influence upon business. Our very largo supply of gold will, if not lost by impulsive leg- islation in the supposed interests of silver, give us a position of advantage in promoting a permanent .and safe international agreement for the free use of silver as a coin metal. The President concurs in the recom- mendations of the Secretary of War, that adequate and regular appropria- tions be continued for coast defense works and ordnance. The encourage- ment that has been extended to the militia should be continued and en- larged. M'KAKING OF THK NATURALIZATION The President says: I beg to renen my recommendation thai the laws be BO amended as to lequire a more full and searching inquiry into all tbe facts necessary to naturalization before any certificates are granted. It cer- tainly is not too much to require that an application for American citizen- ship shall be beard with as much care ana recorded with as much formality as are given cases involving the pet- tiest property rights." The construction and equipment of new ships for the navy has made sa iffactory progress. It is a source vised his people to refrain from break ing the laws of the land, has attracted much attention, and it is hoped thai its influence will be beneficial. Bui the fact should not be overlooked that the doctrine of the church that polyga- mous marriages are rightful remains unchanged. President Woodruff DOES NOT RBNOfNCE THE DOCTRINK. refrains from teaching it and ad- vises against the practice of it because the law is against it. Now it is quite true that the law should not attempt to deal with the faith or belief of any one, but it is quite another thing, and the only safe thing is to deal with the Territory of Utah so that those who believe polygamy to be rightful, shall not have the power to make it lawful. The President refers to his veto of several bills for the erection of' public buildings, on the ground that the ap- propriations thereibr were top large, and recommends a thorough investi- gation aud wise economy in all these cases. Referring to the report of the Sec- retary of Agriculture, the President notices a very substantial improve- ment during the year in the market prices of farm products, especially wheat, corn, oats and Parley. The export trade in live animals and fowls and dairy products has largely in- creased. On the subject of the beet sugar induatry the President says it has already passed the experimental stage, and is a complete commercial success. The area over which it is cultivated is very large, and another Held crop of great value Is thus oflered, to the farmer. The Civil Service law in said to have been executed with fidelity and im- partiality. The President congratulates Con- gress and the country upon the pass- age at the first session of the Fifty- first Congress of an unusual number of laws of very high importance, and oays that the results of this legisla- tion will be the quickening and en- largement of our manufacturing in- dustries; larger and better markets for our breadstuffs and provisions both at home and abroad; more con- stant employment and better wage's for our wording people, and an in- creased supply of safe currency for the transaction of business. The President -further says: "I do not doubt that some of these measures were enacted at so late a period that beneficial effects upon commence, which were in contemplation by Con- gress, lirve as yet but partially rnani- fes_ted themselves. Ic many years, prior to 1888, the merchandise bal- ances had been largely in our favor, hut during that year and the year fol- lowing they turned against us. It is very gratifying to know that the last fiscal year shows a balance in our favor of The bank clear- ings show that the increase on the volume of busines 3 was very general throughout the country during the past year, and that failures were greatly reduced in number." The President states that the value of exports of domestic merchan- dise during the last yc r ex- ceeded the proceeding year by and was only exceeded once in our history. One hundred million of this excess was in agricul- tural products. The depression in the price of agricultural products has been greatly relieved, and a buoyant, hopo- ful feeling is beginning to be felt. On the subject of THK TARIFF BILL Adopted by the present the President says that owing to its recent passage its permanent effect upon trade and prices is still largely a mat- ter of conjecture. He notes that the advance in prices in certain articles, which was basti'y ascribed to the tar- iff bill, was due to other causes, among which be givei the silver bill, which gave an upward tendency to trade. On this subcct the President further says that it would be neithe'- wise nor just to reopen the subject of tariff re- vision until the present law has had a fa'r trial. Every tariff is subject to objections; no bill was ever that in all its rales and clari- fications bad the i'u'l appipval of even a party caucus. Such b'lls are always the result of compromises. But in its general scone and effect the present law will justi.y the euppo-t of those who believe American would preserve and defend American trade and will correct the misinformation as to the terms of tbe act that has widely disseminated at home and abroad. Already the reports tbe cusiom houses show tbe supposed prohibitory effect of legislation isjustiSed. The imports at New York for the first thiee weeks in November were nearly 8 per cent, greater than for the eame f jriod in 1889, and 29 cent, greater than in 1883. The says: by another freely. The state of the revenue was such that we could dis- pense with any import duties upon coffee, tea and bides acd the lower grades oi nugur and molasses. The large advantages resulting to the coon- tries producing and exporting these articles by placing them on the free list entitled us to expect fair returns jn the way of customs concessions, upon articles exported by us to them, and it was so obvious, that to have gratuitously abandonded this oppor- tunity to enlarge our trade would have been an unpardonable" error. This method expresses iu advance the con- bent of Congress to reciprocity ar- rangements affecting these products, which otherwise must have been de- layed until each treaty was ratified by the Senate and the necessary legis- 11 confidently bel'eve under tbe pres eot law we shall secure ft lonjer and more profitable participation in foreign trade than we have ever enjoyed, and that we shall recover a proportionate participation in the oceau carrying trade of the world." Foreign criticism may well be re- jected, as their interests are diametric- ally opposed to ouis, and, while not desiring to injure other nations, we must first look out oar own people. The Executive has constantly kept in mind the duty of usina every means congratulation that the anticipate I in his power to extend and develop 111 fit ft VAttualn rtiiw influence of these modern vessels upon the espirit de corps of officers and seamen has been fully realized. Con- fidence and pride in the ship among tbe crew are equivalent to a second battery. foreign markets for our prodnc's, espe- cially farm products. We are under no disadvantage in any foreign mar- ket, save that we pay better wages than are paid ab- stractly sod better relatively to the lution enacted by Congress. Exper- ience has shown tb'at some treaties toward reciprocal trade have failed to secure a two-thirds vote of the Sen- ate for ratification, and others which have passed that stage have for years awaited tbe concurrence of the House and Senate in such modifications of our revenue.iluw as were necessary to give effect 'to their provisions. The indications'thus far given are very hopeful of the early and favorable action by the countries from which we receive our large imports of coffee and sugar, and it is confidently believed that if the steamer communication with these countries can be promptly improved and enlarged, next year will show a most gratifying increase in our exports of breadstuffs and provisions, as well as pome important lines of manufactured goods. Tbe recom- mendation contained in my last an- nual message in relation to the devel- opment of AMERICAN STEAMSHIP LINES Is urged again. Steamships mails and passengers steadily and fre- quently is the first condition of foreign ;ade. It gives to sailing vessels such cjrgoes as arcs not urgent or perish- able, and indirectly promotes that iin- jortant adjunct of commerce. There is now, both in this country and in the nations of Central and South America, confidence as to increased trade that will give a double value to your prompt action upon this question. An increased subsidy to the Oceanic Steamship Company for carrying the mails between San Francisco and Aus- tralia is urged. If we are not willing to see this important steamship line withdrawn, or continued with Van- couver substituted for San Francisco as the American terminal, Congress should empower the Postmoster-Gen- eral to offer an incr sed subsidy for the transportation of this important mail. The South and gulf ports oc- cupy a very favored position for trade with the South American States by steamship lines, with a connection with their railway system, before a continuous line of railway can be built. The National American Con- ference recommended tbe building of ich a connecting line, aud tbe Presi- >nt recommends that a charter for such a road be granted, but tbat it do not include and guarantee safe deposit privileges or authorize more branches in the United States than are strictly necessary. _ Prompt action should be taken in this matter, so that the recip- rocal trade will be relieved from the tribute exacted by transacting it through Europe. A bill for the teliel of the Supreme Court is now in a position where final action can easily be taken. The sal- aries of the District Judges should De- readjusted so they will not receive less than per annum. It is earnestly hoped that this Con- gress will put an end 10 the delay which has -attended a settlement of disprtes as to the titles bearing upon settlers and claimants under tbe Spanish and Mexican land grants. The enactment of a national bank- rupt law is still regarded as very de- sirable. Uniform rales should be provided for the adruistration of the affairs of insolvent debtors. The recommendation is also re- newed in favor of legislation affording a just copyright for the protection of foieign authors on a footing of recip- rocal advantage for authors abroad. It may still be possible for this Con- gress to'ioaugurate, by suitable legis- lation, a movement looking to uni- formity and increased safety in the use of couplers and brakes upon freight trains engaged in inter-State commerce. Tbe subject of a conservative and equal distribution of a water supply of the arid regions bas not yet been put upon a satisfactory and permanent basis. The urgency of the subject grows out of the danger tbat the water supply and sites for the necessary may fall into tbe bands of individuals or private corporations All unappropriated w ater sources anr'. all necessary reservoirs should be flield by the Government for aa equal use at fair rates of homestead settlers who will eventually take up these lands. The United States should not undertake the construction oi dauns or canals, but should limit its work to such surveys and observations as will determine the water supply, both of surface and subterranean areas capable of irrigation and the use of storage and capacity of reservoirs. The use of WATEB AND RESERVOIR SITES Might be granted to the respective States or Territories or lo individuals or associations on condition that necessary works be constructed and water furnished at fair rates without discrimination. It were almost better tbat these lands should remain arid than those wbo occupy tbern should become slaves of unrestrained monop olies controlling the essential elemen of land aud crop results.' In regard to a postal telegraphy tli President thinks the Governrnen should not own the telegraph' lines bnt might well contract with a tele- graph company to transmit communi catiooe at special rates jnst as it now contracts With the railroads to carrj mails. He recommends Mich lau 8 be passed as will enable the Postolijo Department to test this by ptaclica experiment. The remainder of the message is devoted to the consideration of the necessary reforms in the regulation o elections. The President calls at ten tion to the necessity of a stringeni law. providing for Federal supervision of Congressional elections aud says thai the probable effectiveness of such a law is evinced by the character o: tbe opposition that has been made t< it. He also says that nothing coulc .be farther Irom tbe truth than the claim that such a law is a new exer- cise of Federal power and on invasion of States. ..TJie President pohHft- out that a law providing' for a federal supervision of Congressional 2'ections is already in existence and bas been put into execution bv both the great political parties. He also says it is not a question whether we shall have a Federal election law, but whether we shall have an effective aw, as the present one stops just ihort of effectiveness. He dwells on the necessity of having every safe- guard THROWN AROUND THE BALLOT, And declares: Surely there is noth- about this creed. If it ihall Happen that the penalties of the Sws intended to enforce these rights all here and not there, it is not be- cause the law is sectional, but because, lappily, the crime is local aud not uni- versal. Nor should it be forgotten that every law, whether relating to elections or any other subject whether enacted by a State or nation, has foic-c behind it." President Harrison, in closing his message, says: "I venture to re- mind you that the brief time remain- ing for the considering of the import- ant legislation now awaiting your at- tention offers no margin for waste. If the present duty is discharged with diligence and courage, the work of the Fifty-first Congress may be confi- dently submitted to tbe considerate judgment of the people. The Panhorst Trial. Special to the GAZETTE.] SAN FRANCISCO, Deo. the Pan- horst trial to-day the defendant testi- fied: "I met deceased about five years ago while on a visit to my sis- ter. I was never introduced to him. He came op and spoke to me, and on one occasion be invited me to accom- pany him to his photograph gallery, where be said: 'Millie, what is the use of your working longer? Why not marry me? I have plenty of money now and can support you.'-" The defendant here stated her future course of action was based on his promise of marriage and upon those promises alone. Defendant stated that she loved Goldburg and (would have married him had he kept his word. She left her stepfather's house and remained away for a week and was in the company of deceased, under a belief [that during tbat period the ceremony would be performed. "Finding that his alleged intentions were not to be said the de- fendant, "I returned to my step- father's home. After this occurrence Goldberg returned to my house and desired that a marriage should be performed by contract, which I re- fused to consent to." Goldberg had often threatened barm to defendant if she did not stick to and many times exhibited a loaded pistol in her presence.' A Charge of CrookedueM. By Associated Press.l WASHINGTON, Dec. the House to-day Dockery of Missouri offered for reference a resolution reciting that it is alleged that twelve Senators and fifteen Representatives, pending the passage of the Silver bill, were ad- mitted to partnership in various silver pools, by which they realized 000 profits in the advance of the price of silver after the passage of the Act, and directing the Committee on Coin- age, Weights and Measures to inquire into all the facts and circumstances connected with the alleged purchase and sale of silver.

With the exception of a few seats reserved for the President's family and the diplo- matic corps, every available seat in he vast galleries which surround tho chamber of the House was occupied early in the forenoon by spectators eager to witness the proceedinge at- ending the opening of the second sea- ion of the Fifty-first Congress. The tairs leading to the wide poituln were itilized as a resting place, and the pen ing doois furnished "standing oom only to belated arrivals. The dull, leaden sky which over- ung the city seemed to make the hall ather gloomy, but the gloom was al- lost dissipated by the roars of laugh- er which came from the cloak rooms, nd by the animated conversation irhieri took place upon the floor. The Democrats were especially joy- os, and Uie Republicans were obliged put up with a great deal of good atured badgering with smiling coun- enances. A-very tasteful pyramid of flowers adorned the Speaker's desk. At noon Speaker Reed entered the hall, and a rap of his gavel instantly restored "order. After a prayer by the Chaplain, the Clerk proceeded to call tbe roll by States, The call disclosed the presence of 227 members, and the Clerk was directed to inform the Senate that a quorum of the House was ready to proceed to business. On motion of Cannon of Illinois, a resolution was pdopted for the ap- pointment of a committee to join a similar committee on the part of the Senate to wait upon the President and notify him that Congress was ready toreceiveany communication he might see fit to transmit. On motion of Perkins of Kansas the oath of office was administered to him, and the House then took a recess till to allow the committees to notify the President. On reassembling the President's message was read. The Speaker stated there were var- ious credentials upon his table which he would present to the House. The credentials then read were as follows: C. R. Brftckenridge of the Second Arkansas District, Willis Sweet of Idaho, T. W. Stone of the Twenty- seventh Pennsylvania District and Clarence D. Clark of Wyoming. These gentlemen then appeared at the bar of the House and were duly qualified, Breckenridge receiving a round of applause from his Democratic friends. John S. Pindar of the 34th New York District, E. R. Hayes from the 7th Iowa and Robert Whitlaw of the 14th Missouri were qualified as Represent- atives, notwithstanding the non- arrival of their credentials. The Speaker laid before the House tbe credentials of David A. Harvey as the delegate from the Territory of Oklahoma. And Stilt They Pop. By Associated Press.] BOSTON, Dec.

LONDON, IVc. meeting of the Irish members of the Commons to consider what action the Nationalist party shall take regarding the leader- ship, took phuv at noon. Parnell was to arrive, and he took the i: i.tir ami called the meeting to order. Tolegrums from the delegates in the United States and from Archbishop Croke were read. An adjournment was then taken for luncheon. Prior to the meeting Purnell held a conference with his supporters. Jos- eph Nolan, Timothy Kenny, John Redmond, William Redmond, Edward Harrington, Powers, Shiel and O'Kel- ley were present at the conference. It is said the question of expelling Parnell from membership in the Na- tional Liberal Club will shortly be brought before a committee of that organization. Parnell, on leaving his room, said to anliish reporter: "Tell .them I will fight to the end." Parnell looked pale, but chatted cheerfully with his friends. He took no part in tho proceedings beyond stating that a meeting had been called in accordance with the decision t cached by the party on Friday lost. The meeting reconvened at and "5 Irish members of the House were present. A great bundle of tele- grams was handed in to a reporter represcntii g the freeman's Journal of Dublin, the only outsider admitted. The proceedings were ufjthe storm iest character. Parnell's supporter., strove hard to secure another adjourn- ment, urging that the meeting to de- cide the question of leadership of Irish party thoulil be held in Dublin. Sexton protested against an adjourn- ment. A majority of the party, he declared, desired to keep tho leader- ship unsullied and unstained. Sex- ton's remarks were frequently inter- rupted by tremendous cheering from Parnell's oponents, who comprised a majority of thoHo present. Redmond made a passionate appsal to the members to pause before they deposed from his rightful position the leader of the Irish nation, who by his unparalelled service has earned the gratitude of tho Irish people. The special Parnell meeting re- mained in sensionuntil Oo'clock, when it adjourned for an hour. Mtock Market. By Associated Press. 1 NEW YOHK, Dec. opened this morning unusually active, and displayed some weakness in the early trading. Union Pacific, Northern Pa- cific and Atchison St. Paul were especially active. Union Pacific sold off and the others from 1 to 2 points, but the moat oi the list was quiet. The transactions in stocks after 11 O'clock showed a tendency to higher prices. All life disappeared from the market, and the improvement over the lowest prices was confined in all cases to small fractions. Civil Hervlee Krporr. By Associated P.CM.] WASHINGTON, Dee. annual report of the Civil Service Commission states that classified sorvice hna grown to include moio than people. During the first year of Cleveland's administration, between seven and eight per cent, of the appointments made during previous administrations were removed or resigned, and of those who caino into departmental service tli rough civil service examination, during Cleveland's administration, little more than eight per cent, were removed or resigned dm ing the first year of tho present mhniimtration. This difference of one-eight per cent, is so small that it may be entirely dis- regarded. In customs iind postal ser- vices the result is less satisfactory. Comparing, the report says: "The percentage of the removals in tbe classification services in each post- oflice with tho number of removals made in unclassified and cxcepted places the difference is astonishing. In one case tho percentage ranges from three to twenty-three, in another from forty-six to ninety, and average about seven times as great among those employed not protected by the law as those protected. The conclu- sion is irresistablc that where tho law docs not apply to appointing officers put into exccptetl and unclassified places incompetent persons, or else that their successors removed from these place arc men who are compe- tent, and therefore removed tor rea- sons unconnected with the good sor- vice." The report continues: "Tho por- tions of civil service law interdicting political assessments have not entirely stopped that evil, but have undoutcdly done much to abate it. There is one point particularly where the law is systematically evaded, by sending let- ters soliciting campaign subscriptions to Government employes at their homes. There is no reason whp an outsider should be allowed to solicit u clerk nt his home and be forbidden to do so in the Government building, and this law should be amended KO as to forbid soliciting Government employes by outsiders in any way, at any timo or in any place. It cannot be too often reiterated that while the law may not work with ideal perfection, the actual expericnco for seven years shows it produces on the whole bettor governmental administration than does the patronage Hystem." by Heavy Vronin and Snow.
