Washington, Dec. 6, The president today transmitted to cougrcss his
annual message. Ho begins tho messago with the statement, that notwith
standing tho added burdens, rendered necessary by tho war, our pcoplo re
joice In the very satisfactory and steadily Increasing degree of prosperity
evidenced by the largest 'volumo of business over recorded. The rovonuo
legislation passed by tho present congress has Increased tho treasury recolpte
to tho amount estimated by Its authors and tho Qnancos of tho goycrnmont
have been successfully administered and Its credit lias advanced to tho tlrst
rank, while its currency has been maintained at tho world's highest standard.
Tho military sorvlce, under one common' flag and for a righteous cause, has
strengthened tlio national spirit and liaa served to coment more closoly than
over tho fraternal bonds botween every section of tho country. Tho message
contains about 18,000 words aud tho llrst half of It U dovotcd entirely to tho
history of tho causes leading up to the war and tho prosecution of tho war
and the negotiations for peace. "
The president docs not discuss tho government of tho now possessions,
which will como to us as result of war, h,ut states that a mllltury government
will be coutlnuei until such a time as congress provides other forms of gov
ernment. Of the government of Cuba the messago says: "Spanish rule
must be replaced by a Just, benevolent ,und humane government, created by
the people of Cuba. Until there Is a complcto tranquility on the Island and
until a stable government Is Inaugurated the military occupation will bo
The president strongly urges upon congress tho noceslty fur an early
construction of tho Nicaragua canal and says: "The construction of such a
maritime hlhway Is now more than ovor Indlspcnslblo to that lutlmato and
ready Intcr-communlcatlon between oMrEustcrn and Western seaboards, de
manded by tho annexation of tho Hawaiian Islands and tho prospective ex
pansion of our Influence and commerce to tho Puclllo and our national pol
icy, now more Imperatively than ever, calls for its control by this govern
ment." Concerning tho situation In Chlua, the message nays: "Tho United
States has not been an Indlfforont spectator of tho extraordinary events
transpiring In tho Chlneso empire, whore a portion of Its maritime pro
vinces are passing under tho control of various Europeun powers; but the
prospect that the vast commerce which tho energy of our citizens und tho
necessity of our stuplo productions for Chlneso uses, has built up In tlioso
regions, may uot bo prejudiced through any exclusive treatment by the
new occupants, has obviated tho need of our country becoming an actor In
tho scene. Our position among tho natlonB having a largo Pacific const,
and constantly expanding direct trade with tho farther Orient, gives us an
cqultablo claim to consideration aud friendly treatment In this regard, und
It will bo my aim to subserve our largo Interests In that quartor by nil tho
means appropriate to a consistent policy of obr government. Warships havo
been stationed at Tien Tsl J, for more ready observation of disorders, which
lavo Invaded oven tho Chinese copltul, so as to bo In position to net Hhould
need arise, while a guard of marines has been sent to Peking to ufTord our
minister proper protection.
Much space is dovotcd to tho matter of foreign relations. Regarding tho
claims ngaltiht Turkey the president Isays: Tho newly accredited envoy of
tho United States to tho Ottoman portcj carrlcB full Instructions, looking to
the disposal of all matters lu tho controversy with Turkey fora numbor-of
years. Ho Is especially cl-arged to press for a Just settlement of our claims
or ldemnlty, by reason of tho destruction of tho property of tho America r,
missionaries, residents In that couutry during tho Armenian troubles of 1895,
as well as for tho recognition of olderclatmsof equal Justness, Tho president
recommends that cxccutlvobo authorized to correspond with; governments
of tho principal maritime powois with view of Incorporating into permanent
law of civilized nations prlnclplo or exemption of ull pnvato property at sea
not contraband ot wur from capture or destruction by belllgorcnt powers.
Thosecrotary of tho treasury repotts that tho rocolptsof tho government
from all sources during tho fhcal yoar ondlng Juno 30, 1809, amountod to
$401,321,333, and Its expenditures to $143,308,682. It It estimated that upon u
