at the usual hour on Monday and apnintisl
eoiuniiilcea to wail upon President Harri
son and inform him that they were ready to
receive anv coiuiiitinicnttnu which he had
! to make. Owing to recent deaths In the fam
i ily he wasunaldeto present the message
: until Tuesday, when it was read In Ihe
i presence of IhhIi house.
I In the senate, so soon as the secretary llm
ished reading the journal, a messenger
I handed him the president's message, which
; he proceeded to read. The commercial and
business statistics giv en in Ihe first part of
the message and the sarvat!r paragraphs as
, to the "imposed etlocl of a land lor revenue
scs'ined to meet general approval on Ihe re
publican side of the chandsfr. They at
tracted but little attention on the other side.
Poring the reading Ihe democratic senators
for Ihe most part were chatting listlessly
, with eu. h other or attending to their cor
ressMiih'i,ce, while the republican enttlors
- paid the president the compliment of gu
ing In in undivided attention,
IX ttIK Hi'l sK.
The reading of the message in the house
; met wild hill little attention. Many n ein-U-rs
h it the hall, preferring to studv the
. recxonmendaliou of the president at leis
ure, at home. Those who remained entered
into conversation or devoted themselves to
a jserusal of the newspaisrra. At the con
clusion of the reading, the message was re
ferred to the committee of the whole.
The president says: In submitting my an
nual message to congress I have great satis
faction in being able to sav that the general
conditions affecting the commercial and in
dustrial interests of the I'nlted Slates aretn
the highest degree favorable. A comparison
of the eisting conditions with those of Ihe
most favored period In the history of the
country will itself show that such a degree of
prosperity and so general a diffusion of the
comforts of life were never before enjoyed
by our people. The total wealth of the
country in laafin,l.'VM',KiM. J ism
it amounted to lif-VHtUti i.toi, an increase of
2s? per cut.
j If any are discontented with their state
here, if any believe that the wage or prices,
the return for honest toil, are inadequate,
i they should not fail to remember that there
I is no other country in lbs world where the
conditions, that seem to them hard, would)
; not he accepted as highly pruasrous. The
English agriculturist would be glad to ex
change the returns of his labor for those of
the American farmer, and the Manchester
workmen their wages for those of their fel
lows at Fall River. I believe that Ihe pro
tective system which How for something
like thirty years has prevailed in our leg's
lation has been a mighty instrument for Ihe
development of our national wealth, and a
most powerful agency in protecting (be
homes of our workingnien Irom the Inva
sion of want. I have felt a most solicitous
interest to preserve to our working people
rates of wages that would give not only
dailv bread, but supplv a comfortable mar-
gin for those home attractions and family
I comforts and enjoyments without which
I life is neither hopeful nor sweet. 'They are
' American citizens, a part of the great -oplc
for whom our constitution nud government
! were framed and instituted, and it cannot
lie a perversion of that constitution to leg
islate so as to preserve in their homes the
comfort, independence, loyalty and sense of
interest in the government which are essen
tial to good citizenship, in H-ai-e which
will bring them, as in lsnl, to the defense of
the flag w hen it is assailed,
Til K RUt'LT or Till 11.HTIOS.
It is not my pnriwse to renew here the ar
gument in favor of a protective tariff. The
result ol Ihe recent election must be accepted
as having introduced a new ollcy. Vie
must assume that the present tariff, con
structed us)ti the lines of protection, Is to
be repealed, and that there is to lie substi
tuted for it a tarilllaw constructed solely for
revenue: that no duty is to he higher because
the increase will keep oien an American
mill or keep up the wages of an American
workingtnan, but that in every case such a
rate of duty is to lie imposed as will bring
to the treasury the largest revenue. The
contention has not been between schedules,
hut between principles, and it would he of
fensive to suggest that the prevailing party
will not carry into legislation the principles
advocated by it, and the pledges given the
people. The tariff bills passed by the house
of representatives at the last session were,
as I supposed, even in the opinion of their
promoters, inadequate sun justified only by
the fact that the senate and house of repre
sentatives were not in accord, and that a
general rev ision could not then-lore lie un
dertaken. 1 recommend that the whole
subject ol tariff lie left to the Incoming con
gress. His a matter of regret that this work
must be delayed for at least three months,
for the threat of great tarilt changes intro
duces so much uncertainty that an amount,
not easily estimated, of business inaction
and of diminished production will necessa
rily result. It is possible, also, that this
uncertainty may result in decreased reve
nues from customs duties, for our iner.
chants w ill make cautious ortlers for foreign
goods in view of the prospect of tarlir reduc
tions ami the uncertainty as to when it will
FORECASTS or THE rROTKt TIOWISTS.
Those who have advocated a protective
tariff can well afford to have their disastrous
forecasts of a change of policy disappointed.
If a system of customs rules can be framed
that will set the Idle wheels and looms of
Europe in motion, and crowd our ware
bouses with foreign made goods, and at the
same time keep our own mills busy; that
will give us an increased participation In
the " markets of the world" of a greater
value than Ihe borne market that we sur
render; that will give increased work to for
eign workmen upon products to lie con
sumed by our people without diminishing
the amount of work to be done here; that
will enable the American manfacttirer to
pay to his workmen from 60 to 100 per cent,
more in w ages than is paid the foreign mill,

CAt'SIS ION KUnlClllll,
If that experience shall demonstrate that
the present rates ol wam are thereby main
tained, or Increased, either absolutely or in
their purchasing nvcr; that the aggregate
volume of work to be dune in this country
is increased, or even iiiaiutiiiue.1 ; that there
are more, or as many, days' work in a year,
at as good or better wuges, received by the
American workman as has been the ruse
under the protective system, every one will
rejoice. A general prnresa of wage reduc
tion cannot be contemplated by any patri
otic citizen without the gravest apprehen
sion. It may lie indeed, I believe Is- pos
sible for the American maiitifiicturer to
rouicte suci eisfully with his foreign rival
III many branches nf production without the
defense of protective duties, if the pay mils
are eitiulicd ; hut the cunllict that stands
between the producer and that result and
the distress of our workingnien w hen It Is
attained, are not pleasant to contempliite,
the society of the unemployed, now hold
ing Its frequent and threatening parades In
the streets of foreign cities, should not be
allowed to acquire an American domicile.

The reiorts of the heads of the several
executive departments, which are herewith

but of the country, Is again Invited to the
methods of the administration which have
been pursued, ami to the results which have
been attained. Public revenues, amount

portance as to attract the public attontien,
and at a diminished per cent, of cost for col

One Pure Baking Powder.
Like Telling a Secret.
A Rtory in told and it is a true story that over seventy
per cent, of all the baking powders Bold contain either alum
or ammonia, and many of these powders contain both. Tho
ill effects upon the system of food raised by alum or ammo
nia powders are the more dangerous because of their insidious
character. It would be less dangerous for the people were it
fatal at once, for then such food would bo avoided, but their
baneful action because imperceptible at first and slow in its
' advances, is no less certain.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is declared by all
authorities as free from alum, ammonia or any other adul
terant. Its purity has never been questioned, and while it
docs finer and better work, it costs no more at retail than
many of the adulterated powders.
