The-eidea- have been unhappily much en couraged by legislative acquiescence. Kelicf trom contract made with the Government is eablly accorded m favor of the cltizer. as the failure to support claans aguiust the fJovern meut by proof is often supplied by no better con-iJeration than the wealth of the Govern ment and the poverty of the claimant. Gratui ties in the form of pensions are granted upon no other real ground than the needy condition of the applicant, or for reasons less valid, aud large sums are expended for public bnildings and other Irsprov emcats upon representations t-carcely claimed to be related to public needs and necessities. The extent to vtich the caa s,ideratioa of such matter subordinate and postpone action upon subjects of great public imjKrtance but involving no special, private or jigrtisas interest should arrest attention Bad led to reformation. A few of the numerous illustrations ot this condition may be stated: The crow ded condition of the calendar of the Supreme Court, and the delay to suitor and de ntal of justice resulting therefrom, have been drongly urged upon the attention ot tac Con gress, w 1th a plan for the relief of the sitaattoa approved by those well ablo to judge of its mer it. Whi e this subject remains without effect ive consideration, many laws have been passed providing f pr lie licldiis ol teres of inferior I B A-W W 1 " r'' ! ... - I ...-W W. f -- """" . - .. .....,,.. .1 l.U A itics or to lay the foundation of an amplication for the erection of u new public building. Itepoated reoommendations have b-en ub-J nutted for the amendment nd ohungc of the " laws relating to our public landi. so that tbeir spoliation ana inversion to o.ner unes iow Lome for honest settlers might be prevented. While a measure to meet this conceded neces sity of reform remains awaiting the action of the Congress many claims to the public land and applications for their donation in favor of States and individuals have been allowed. A plan in aid of Indian management, recom mended by those well Informed as containing valuable features in furtherance of the solution of the Indian problem, has thus far failed of legislative sanction, while grant of doubtful xpediency to railroad coiipantes. permitting them to p.i through Indian rescnatfons, hate greatly multiplied. The propriety and nee ssity of theerfctlon of one or more prisons for the confinement of United States convicts and a post-office build ing in the National capital are not disputed, but tliese needs jet remain unanswered, while scores of public buildings have been erected where their necessity for public purpose, u not apjiarcnt, A revision of our pension laws should le made, which would rest upon just principles aud provide for every worthy applicant. lJut while our general pension lawn remain con fused aud imperfect, hundreds f our private pension laws are annually passed which are the -ourees of unjust discrimination aud pop ular demoralisation. Appropriation bills for the support of the Government are defaced by items and provis ions to meet private ends and it is freely as serted by responsible and experienced parties that a bill apjiropr ating money for public in ternal improvement would fail to meet with favor, unless it contained item- more for local und private advantage than lor putillc benefit. These statements can lie much emphasized by an kscertttinment of the proiortion of Federal legislation, which either bears iinon ' its face, its nrlvate rbjrnrtr or which, ution examination, develop- such a motive iKjwer. And j.ettho jh-oji'o wait and expect from their chosen representatives surh patriotic action as will advance the- welfare of the entire countrv ii'iu tins ex j cctatlon can only be an-v. ered by the performance of public duty with unseltl-h pur pjse Our mission among lb- nation- of the earth and our succ--s in ucrcjiip i-nlng the worl: God has given the American people to do, rerjulre of tho-e intru-ted with the malting and execu tion of our laws, perfect devotion utxtve all other thing-, to the public g od. This devotion will lead us to strongly resist all Impatience of constitutional limitations of Federal power and to persi-tently checl: iIim increasing tendency to extend the scope of Federal legislation into the domain of State and local jurisdiction upon the pica of subserving the jiubiic welfare. The preservation of the partitions lietwecn pnisr subjects of Federal und local care and regulation. Is of such imjrtauee under th Constitution, which is the law of our very ex istence that no consideration of exedieiuc or sentiment should tempi us to enter uiton doubtful ground. We have undertaken to dis cover and proclaim the richest ble Ing- of a free Government with the Constitution as our guide Let us follow- the way it jMitnts out It will not mislead. And surely no one who has taken upon himself the solemn obligation tosujiport and jireserve the Constitution can lind justification or sol.ue for dlslov.dty in the excu-c that he wandered and disobeyed in search of a better way to rearh the public wel fare than the Constitution offers. What has been said is deemed not inappro priate at a time w hen. Irani a eenturj's height we view the way alrcidy trod by the American people ami attempt to discover their future paths. The seventh President of the United States tin; soldier and statesman and at all limes the firm and brave friend of the pe-ople in vindication ot his course us the protector ot the popular rights and championship of true American citizenship, declared: "The umbitioti w hich leads me on is an anxious desire and u fixed determination to restore to thi people, unimpaired, the sacred tru-t they have confided to my charge, to heal the wounds of the Constitution and to prevent its violation.

The Fisheries question has not been satisfactorily adjusted, but since March -Id, 17, no cases have been re ported to the Itcp.irtinent of State when in complaint has been made of unlawful or unfriendly treatment by Canadian authori ties in which reparation was not promptly nnd satisfactorily obtained bv the United States Consul-General at Hall nx. I continue in the opinion that the treaty of February last, which failed l rvceivc the approval of the Senate, did supply "a satisfartorv, practicable and final adjustment, on a basis honorable und just to iKtlh parties, to the difficult and texed ques tion to which it related." and having subse quently a d unavaillngly recommended either legislation to Congress which I hoped would sufrlte to meet the urgenev created bv the rejection of the twaiy. I now again invoke the earnest and iinmediute attention of the Congress to the con dition of this important question as it now stands before them and the country. nu for the settlement of which I am deeply soil itotis. The West incident is treated us follows: "Near the close of the month of October Inst occurrences of a deeply regrettable nature were brought to my knowledge, which made it my painful but imperative duty to obtain, with as little delay as possible, a new M-rsoiial chan nel of diplomatic tnt-rcoutse in this country with the Government of Great Krita'.n.

As the greater part of mall matter exchanged with tin se countries is torn j menial In its character this increase is evl j dence of the increased bulnes relatlcnts with them. The practical o'leratlon of the parcel jcst contention so fru- negotiated ha- served to fulfil the mo-t favorable prediction as to their benefits. In January Inst a ge:.rnd postal co:, veutlon was negotiated with the liou.tiiiou of Canada, which went into operation March 1 and hich practically make one postal terr'tory of the United States and Canada. Under it mer chandise parrels may now le transmitted through the mails at fourth class rales of post age. It i not possible hero to touch even thr lead ing heads of tho great jo-tal establishment to illustrate the enormous and rapid growth of the business and tho needs for legislative p-adju-l meat ot much of Its tuachiuery that It ha- out grown. Fr tlie-e and valuable n-ccommenda-lions of the I'ostma ter General nttenllou is invited to his n-jwirt, A department whose revenues have incn-ased fnm lV.T7i.o In 1-Tb to SVJ.7 II.Mil in lvt. despite rnluction of ;xst age which have euonnously re-'ueed rate of revenue whtlo daily incn-aslcg Its business de mands the careiul consideration of the Congress as to all mutte-i-i suggested by those familiar with Its operations und which are calculated to increase its efllcienevand u-i fulrw-s. Of the total n'Ribcr of poslmaster M.74 are of the fourth class, The-e, of cour- receive no allowances whatever for expenses in thoser vice, rnd their compensation is tlxed by er centages on receipt- ut their resi-ctlve oitUcs. This rate of cotniens-itton may have been and probably was. at one time, just, but the stand ard has rrmained unchanged through the sev eral reductions m the rates of otage. Surh reductions have nccv-sarily cut down the com pensation f thr-e oRlcials while it undoubtedly Increased the business performed by them. Simple justice roqutn-s a mention of this sub ject to the end that fourth-class otmasters may merive at least an equivalent to that which the law Itself tixing the rate intended for them. Another class of postal employes whoe con dit on seems to demand legislation is that of clerks lu iost-omces and I cull e-spect ! atten tion to the rt-tM-uied recommendations of the Fo-tmaster General forlheircIasltlcatlnn. l'ropi-r legislation of this character for the relief of carrier- in the free delivery erv ice has Ix-en frequent.

It Is slated lu this rep.-t that though judgments in civil suits amounting to f -viti.'i.'r were recovered in favor of the Gov eminent during the jear. only the sum of t l.ti.

These facts mav furnish an tllutratinn of the entimeut which extensively prevail that a debt due the Government should cauc no in covcnlcnceio the citizen. It also appears fmm this rejKirt that though prior to March, lvC there had be-i but six convictions in the Tenttorie of Utah und Idaho under the 1-w of IS and I . punish ing polygamy a d unlawful cohabitation u crimes, there have b.-en since thut date nearly lx hundred conviction under the laws and statutes of 17. and the opinion is expressed thut undersiirb a firm aud vigilant execution of these laws and the advance of ideas oppo-e-d to the forbidden practices, jolvgamy within the Utiited State i virtually at an end.
