the results of the recent Harrison defends the Tariff policy of the Republican speculates As to the policy of the new administration and treats of the causes which led to his own the pension and Federal election questions Are discussed in an entertaining the president de fends heartily the reciprocity at the outset he says in submitting my annual message to i have Greit satisfaction in being Able to say that the general conditions affecting the commercial and Industrial interests of the United states Are in the highest degree a comparison of the existing conditions with those of the most favored period in the history of the country i be show that so High a degree of and so general a diffusion of the comforts of life were never before enjoyed by our the Wace earnings not Only show an increased but an increase per capita from in 1880 to in or per the new Industrial plants established since and up to As partially reported in the Amer ican number Ami the Extension of existing plants 108 the new capital invested amounts to and the number of additional employees to the report of Ira special agent of the Treasury shows that at the Date of there were thirty two companies manufacturing tin and Tern plate in the United and fourteen companies building new works for such the estimated investment in buildings and plants at the close of the fisc Sil june if existing conditions were to to was and the Esti mated rate of production pounds per the actual production for the Quarter ending was there never has been a time in our history when work was so abundant or when wages were As whether measured by the currency in which they Are paid or by their Power to Supply the necessaries and comforts of i believe that the protective which has now for something More than thirty years continuously prevailed in our has been a mighty instrument for the development of our National and a most powerful Agency in protecting the Homes of our from tie invasion of Tariff it is not my purpose to renew Here the argument in favor of a protective the result of the recent election must be accepted As having introduced a now we must assume that the pres ent Tariff constructed upon the lines of Protection is to be and there is to be substituted for it a Tariff Law constructed solely with reference to Revenue that no duty is to be higher because the increase will keep open an american Mill or keep up the wages of an american but that in every Case such a rate of duty is to be imposed As will bring to the Treasury of the United states the largest returns of the Contention Lias not been Between but Between Princi and it would be offensive to Sug Gest that the prevailing party will nut carry into legislation the principles advocated by it and the pledges Given to the i recommend that the whole subject of Tariff revision be left to the incoming it is a mutter of regret that this work must be delayed for at least three months Lor the threat of great Tariff changes introduces so much uncertainty that an not easily is of business inaction and of diminished production will necessarily re it is that this uncertainty May result in decreased revenues from customs for our Mer chances will make cautious orders for for eign goods in View of the Prospect of Tariff reductions and the uncertainty As when they will take those who have advocated a protective Tariff can Well afford to have their disastrous fore casts of a change of policy if a of customs duties can be framed that will set the Idle wheels and looms of Europe in motion and crowd our warehouses with foreign made goods and it the same time keep cur own Mills that will give us an increased participation in the markets of the world of greater value than the Home Market we surrender that will give in creased work to foreign workmen upon products to be consumed by our people without diminishing the amount of work to be done Here that will enable the american manufacturer to pay to his workmen from 50 to 100 per More in wages than is paid in the for eign Mill and yet to compete in our foreign Market and in foreign markets with the foreign producer that will further reduce the Cost of articles of and food without reducing the wages of those who produced them that can be and its effects have been As its expectation has been in european As Well As in american the authors and promoters of it will be entitled to tue highest we have had in our history several experiences of the contrasted effects of a Revenue and of a protective but this generation has not Felt and the experience of one generation is not highly instructive to the the friends of Fie protective with undiminished Confidence in the Princi Ples they have will of trait the result of the new capital and the strained and too often disturbed relations existing Between the employees Rand the employers in our great manufacturing establishments have not been favourable to a Calm consideration by the wage earner of the effect upon wages of the protective the facts that his wages were the highest paid in like Call Ings in the world and that a maintenance of this rate of wages in the absence of protective duties upon the pro duct of his was were obscure Al by the passion evoked by these he May How be Able to re View the question in the Light of his per Sonal experience under the operation of a Tariff for Revenue if that experience shall demonstrate that present rates of wages Are thereby maintained or either absolutely or in their purchasing and that the aggregate volume of work to be done in this country is increased or even maintained so that there Are More or As Many Days work in a year at As Good or better wages for the american Workman As has been the Case under the protective sys every one will a general process of wage reduction cannot be contemplated by any patriotic citizen without the gravest it May i believe possible for the american manufacturer to compete successfully with his foreign rival in Many branches of production without the defense of protective if the pay Rolls Are but the conflict that stands Between the producer and that result and the distress of our work ing people when it is attained Are not pleasant to the society of the unemployed now holding its frequent and threatening Parados in the streets of foreign cities should not be allowed to acquire an american is facts of our relations with other nations Are now undisturbed by any serious Contro the complicated and threaten ing differences with Germany and England relating to

Market for our surplus often an opening has also been made for manufactured products that will if this policy is main greatly augment our Export the full Benefit of these arrangements cannot be realized in new lines of Trade Are to be the commercial trav Eler must Survey the the manufacturer must adapt his goods to the new markets and facilities for Exchange must be this work has been Well our merchants and manufacturers have entered the new Fields with courage and in the Case of food and especially with the Trade did not need to and the immediate results have been most if this policy and these Trade arrangements can be continued in Force and aided by the establishment of american steamship i do not doubt that we within a Short secure fully on third of the total Trade of the countries of Cen trial and South which now amounts to in 1s85 we had Only 8 per of this the total increase in the value of exports to All the countries with which we have reciprocity agreements has been this increase in chiefly in meat and Dairy and in manufactures of Iron and steel and there has been a Large increase in the value of imports from All these countries since the com Mercial

continuously been thwarted or retarded by unreason Able and unfriendly objections and pro tests from in the matter of the canal our treaty rights were flagrantly it is hardly too much to say that the Canadian Pacific and other railway lines which parallel our Northern Boundary Are sustained by Commerce having either its origin or or in the United Canadian railroads compete with those of the United states for our traffic and without the restraint of our interstate Commerce their cars pass almost without detention into and out of our there is no disposition on the part of the people or government of the United states to interfere in the smallest de Gree with the political relations of can that question is wholly with her own it is time for to consider if the present state of things and trend of things is to con our interchanges upon lines of land transportation should not be put upon a different and our entire Independence of Canadian canals and of the Lawrence As an outlet to the sea secured by the construction of an Amer ican qty dial around the Falls of and the opening of ship communication Between the great lakes and one of our own we should not hesitate to Avail ourselves of our great natural Trade we should withdraw the support which is Given to the rail roads and steamship lines of Canada by a traffic that properly belongs to and no longer furnish the earnings which lighten the crushing weight of the enor Mous Public subsidies that have been Given to the subject of the Power of the Treasury to Deal with this matter without further legislation has been under but Circum stances have postponed a it is probable that a consideration of the propriety of a modification or abrogation of the article of the treaty of Washington relating to Tho transit of goods in Bond is involved in any com plete solution of the other foreign Congress at lost session was kept advised of Progress of the serious and for u in threatening differences Between the United states and it gives me now great gratification to re port that the chilian in a most Friendly and honorable has tendered and paid As an indemnity to the families of the sailors of the Baltimore who were killed and to those who were injured in the outbreak in Tho City of Valparaiso the sum of Liis has been not Only As an indemnity for a wrong but As a most Gratifying evidence that Tho government of Chili rightly appreciates the disposition of this government to net in a spirit of the most absolute fairness and friendliness in our inter course with that Brave a further and conclusive evidence of the Mutual respect and Confidence now existing is furnished by the fact that a Convent Iii submitting to arbitration the Mutual claims of the citizens of the respective governments has been agreed some of these claims have been pending for Many years Aud have been the Occa Sion of much unsatisfactory diplomatic our relations with Hawaii have been such us to attract an increased interest and must continue to do i deem it of great importance that the projected submarine a Survey for which has been should be both for naval and commercial uses we should have Quick communication with Hono we should before this have availed ourselves of the made Many years ago to this govern for a Harbor and naval station at Pearl Many evidences of the friendliness of the hawaiian govern ment had been Given in the and it is Gratifying to believe that the Advant age and necessity of a continuance of very close relations is the Friendly act of this government in expressing to the government of Italy its reprobation and Abhorrence of the Lynching of italian subjects in new or leans by tie payment of or was accepted by the King of Italy with every manifestation of gracious and the incident has been highly promotive of Mutual re Spect Aud Good Mons trances of this hat raising regulations in regard to schools and churches have been attempted in certain but not without due process and the assertion of the inherent and conventional rights of our country violations of domicile and search of the persons and effects of citizens of the United states by App trently irresponsible officials in the Asiatic Vila

by the government of the interference with the Trad ing ventures of our citizens in Asia minor is also and the Lack of con sular representation in that Region is a serious drawback to instant and

make protest against this encroachment upon the the territory of a Republic which was founded by citizens of the United states and toward which this country has for Many years held the intimate relation of a Friendly coun our Intercourse with Spain continues on a Friendly i How not to be Able to report As yet the adjustment of the claims of the Ameri can missionaries arising from the disorders at in the Caroline but i anticipate a satisfactory adjust ment in View of renewed and urgent representations to the government at treatment of the religious and a National establishments of american citizens in Turkey has of late called for More than usual share of a tendency to curtail the toleration which has so beneficially prevailed is Discerni ble and has called Forth the Earnest re the Nicaragua ship i repeat with great earnestness the which i have made in several previous messages that prompt and adequate support be Given to the american company engaged in the construction of the Nicaragua ship it is impossible to overstate the value from every standpoint of this great in and i Hope that there May be time even in this Congress to give to it an impetus that will insure the Early completion of the canal and secure to the u United states its proper relation to it when the Congress has been already advised that the invitations of this government for the assembling of an International monetary conference to consider the question of an enlarged use of Silver were accepted by the nations to which they were the conference assembled at Brussels on the 22d of no vember and has entered upon the consideration of this great i have not and have taken occasion to express that As Well in the invitations issued for this conference As in my Public that the free coinage of Silver upon an agreed International ratio would greatly promote the interests of our people and equally those of other it is too Early to predict what results May be accomplished by the con if any temporary Check or de Lay intervenes i believe that Yery soon Cor Mercial conditions will compel the now reluctant governments to unite with is in this movement to secure the enlargement of the volume of coined Money needed for the transactions of the business of the the condition of the the report of the Secretary of treas Ury will attract special interest in View of the Many misleading statements that have been made As to the state of tie Public three preliminary facts should not Only be but emphasized before looking into the details the Public debt has been reduced since March and the annual interest charge there have been paid out for pensions during this administration up to an excess of Over the sum expended during the period from March to March 1881j under the existing Tariff up to 1 about of reve nue which would have been collected upon imported sugars if the duty had been maintained has gone into the pockets of the people and not into the Public As if there Are any who still think that the surplus should have been kept out of circulation by hoarding it in the Treasury or de posited in Liiv ored Banks without inter while thu government continued to pay these very Banks interest upon the Bonds deposited As Security for the de or who think that the extended pension legislation was a Public or that the duties upon sugar should have been i am Content to leave the argument where it now while we wait to see whether these criticisms will take the form of Tho revenues for the fiscal year ending june from All sources were and the expenditures for All purposes were Leav no a balance of there vere paid during the year upon the pubic debt the surplus in lie Treasury and the Bank redemption passed by the act of july the general furnished in Large part the Cash available and used for the moments made upon the Public compared with the year our receipts from customs duties fell off while our receipts from inter Nal revenues increased having the net loss of Revenue from these principal sources the net loss of Revenue from All sources was the revenues estimated and actual for the fiscal year ending june Are placed by the Secretary at and the expenditures

revenues Dur ing tie process of business adjustment to the new conditions when they become the estimated receipts for the fiscal year ending june Are and the estimated appropriations leaving an estimated sur plus of receipts Over expenditures of this does not include any payment to the sinking in the recommendation of the Secretary that the sinking fund Law be i the redemption of Bonds since the passage of the Law to june has already exceeded the requirements by the sum of the retirement of Bonds in the future before maturity should be a matter of con of Gold the Public Confidence in the purpose and ability of the government to main Tain the parity of All Bur Money whether Coin or must remain the demand for Gold in Europe an the consequent Calls upon us in a considerable the result of the efforts of some of the european governments to increase their Gold re and these efforts should be met by appropriate legislation upon out the conditions that have created this Drain of the Treasury Gold Are in an important degree political and not com in View of the fact that a general revision of our Revenue Laws in the near future seems to be it would be better that any changes should be a part of that revision rather than of a temporary during the last fiscal year the Secre tary under the act of july ounces of and issued in payment therefor in the total purchases since Tho passage
