An Able review of National affairs presented to Congress. Our foreign relations and controversies with Italy and Chili Domestic affairs and pertinent suggest ions in relation thereto. The presidents message submitted to Congress yesterday was a voluminous document of which the following is a Clear synopsis. The reports of departments submitted to me and herewith presented with reports of Secretary of the Treasury and attorney general show Tho administrative work of the past year How every question has been decided from the stand Point of Public duty and interest. The scrutiny of Congress is invited to every Branch of Tho Public service. That of the state department has embraced an unusual number of important negotiations whose diplomatic results have been highly Beni tibial. Among them Are reciprocal Trade arrangements with Brazil. Spanish West indies and san Domingo and Well advanced negotiations with other countries which before the close of the year will probably end in decisive arrangements of great value. An agreement was reached and signed june 15th by which great Britain pending arbitration on tile Seal question agreed to prohibit the killing by her subjects of seals in the Behring sea and the u. To enforce its acts against pillage and limits its catch to 7,500 skins the agreement to hold until May 1892. It was four months after submitting this proposition before it was accepted and had it been at once agreed to would have been More effective in restraining Canadian Paoching but As it was it has prevented much destruction. Terms for arbitration satisfactory to this government have been agreed upon and these will i Hope meet the approval of Congress. A joint demarcation of the line Between Canada and u. S., especially an exact location of water boundaries is imperatively demanded. Germany Denmark Italy Austria and France have opened their ports to american imported pork. Outlines of an agreement with Germany have Boon reached looking to equitable Trade concessions. Brazil advices were too meagre to enable us to do More than express our Hope for the continued peace or the country which were accepted in a Friendly spirit. The mafia affair. The Lynching of la men of italian nationality in new Orleans last March was a deplorable affair. Representation was made to the italian minister that these men were italian citizens and a demand was made for the punishment of the guilty and to the families of Tho murdered men. The manner in which this demand was made precluded any Calm discussion of Tho affair. The views of this government As to foreigners domiciled Here were fully stated As Well As its purpose to investigate and ascertain ii any obligation rested upon the u. Correspondence has been retarded by the temporary absence of the italian minister but it is not doubted that a Friendly conclusion is attainable. I believe Congress is competent to make offences against treaty rights of foreigners domiciled Here recognizable in Tho Federal courts and that the officers of the state should be considered in such cases As Federal agents for whose acts this government would be answerable. Chilian complications. Upon the surrender of Valparaiso to the congressional forces late in August our minister was directed to recognize the new government which was done. This government refused to give belligerent rights to Tho insurgents As the government had insisted Europe should not give such rights to Tim insurgents during our own civil War. Tho rata was seized for violation of neutrality forcibly wrested from the los. Officer and put to sea. The provisional government of Chili conceded the right of this government to take such action and returned the Itata to our custody. The court hns decided that having no belligerent rights there could to no violation of neutrality Laws and from this opinion an Appeal is taken. This government insisted upon the absolute nou interference in Chili affairs by its minister and officers in Chili Waters. No official complaint has reached this government that these orders were disobeyed. The american minister offered an Asylum to the political refugees whose lives were in peril and i have not ordered the surrender of these refugees without conditions. The unfriendly treatment shown our minister on this account has been discontinued. On the kith of october several s our sailors on Shore in Valparaiso on leave and unarmed were attacked by armed men one Petty officer killed and several men seriously wounded one of whom has died. Thirty six of our men were arrested some badly beaten while going to prison. The fact that All were subsequently discharged shows that there was no broach of the peace. An investigation made at once by the ships officers showed no cause for the assault. There was no apparent cause for the assault save that these men were wearing the uniform of this government. Tim attention of Chi ii was called to the affair and she was Given notice that reparation would to demanded if the investigation showed no just provocation for the attack. No re Ponse has been made by Chili but investigation has been ordered by her and it is now nearly concluded and a reply to our note As Well As the results of the investigation Are looked for soon. If these expectations Are not met i will Call the attention of Congress to this matter in a special message and Lay before you All the correspondence covering the Case. Chinese barbarities. The massacres of foreigners in China a Casio Grea alarm. No Effort will be wanting to protect our citizens in that country. I have pointed out to the chinese government the untenable Ness of its position in rejecting or. Blair As our minister to that country. I Call your attention to the necessity of special Laws for temporary admission of chinese labourers and artists in connection with the chinese exhibit at the worlds fair. I have very strongly protested against the failure of Spain to maintain american rights in the Caroline islands to which she is pledged. Spain has invited the United states to take part in the Celebration of the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America at Madrid sept. 12 to dec. 31.1892. This invitation should receive a Friendly response. A surveys for the proposed intercontinental railway Are in Progress and no insurmountable objects met with surveys for submarine Cable Are in Progress Between the Pacific coast and Honolulu and provision should be made for a naval station at Pearl River. This government has remonstrated in a Friendly spirit with Russia upon the measures enforced against the hebrews of that country. Nicaragua canal. Much costly preparatory work has been done. It is of the highest concern to the United states that this canal he speedily constructed and at the least Cost. I Ani quite willing to recommend government promotion of this work by guaranteeing canal Bonds provided the United states can secure itself against the mortgage holders for any Money it May have to pay. The trouble among the labourers on the Island of Navassa West Didies has been enquired into and i recommend legislation that will place labor contracts Here and on other islands to which we sustain similar relations under the supervision of a court commissioner at the expense of the contractors. International copyright has been secured with Belgium. France. Great Britain Switzerland and the British possessions and a special convention is being negotiated with Germany on this matter. Tariff and revenues. It is not my intention to enter into a discussion of the results of the Tariff legislation and that which affected Revenue concerning which such antagonistic predictions were made. The end disappoints the evil prophets and largely realizes the Hopes of the most sanguine. During the twelve months from october i 1890, to september 30, 1891, the total valuation of our foreign Commerce imports and exports combined was #1,747,-806, 400, which was the largest of any year in the history of the United states. The average annual value of the imports of merchandise for the ten years from 1881 to 1890 was #692,180,522. And during the year ending september 30, 1891, this annual average was exceeded by #132,528,409. The value of free imports during the twelve months ending september 30,1891, was 1118,092,387 More than the value of free imports during the corresponding twelve months of the preceding year Ana there was during the same period a decrease of #106.840,508 in the value of imports of dutiable merchandise. The percentage of merchandise admitted free of duty during the year to which i have reference. The first under the new Tariff was 48.18, while during the proceeding twelve months under theold Tariff the percentage was 34.27, an increase of 13.91 per cent. The report of the Secretary of the Treasury shows that the total receipts of the government from All sources for the fiscal year ending june 30, 1891, were #458,544, 233.03, while the expenditures for the same period were #421,304,470.40, leaving a surplus of #37,239,702.57. The receipts of tile fiscal year ending june 30, 1892, actual and estimated Are #433,000,000 and the expenditures #409,000,000. For the fiscal year ending june 30, 1893, the estimated receipts Are #455.330,350 and the expenditures #441,300,093. The new Tariff has created several great industries that will soon employ Large numbers of american workmen and any Radical changes in Tariff or financial legislation will not help but May seriously impede business. As to Silver coinage the message recommends that the existing Laws be Given a fair trial and declares bimetal ism the desired end. The report of the War Secretary shows an intelligent progressive and business like administration of that department. The efficiency of anti chinese regulations is seen everywhere save in the cases of those coining across the Canadian Border and such change in the Laws is desired As will return these to China and not to Canada. Postal and other departments. Postal Revenue has increased #5,000,000 8, xxx additional Miles of Railroad postal routes established Ocean mail offices in certain steamship lines created and the delivery system largely extended. The naval department has shown great activity. Four new ships have been added during the year Newark Concord Bennington Mion Tonemah better Carror plate invented and cheaper methods of manufacture instituted. Pensions affairs. The commis Lorner expresses Tho opinion that he will be Able to carefully adjudicate and allow 350, xxx claims during the present fiscal year. The appropriation for the payment of pensions for the fiscal year 1890-91 was #127 085,775.89 and the amount expended #119,530,040.20 leaving an unexpended surplus of #9,155, 144.04.
