The addhione which have been made to it proclaim larger freedom and mere extended citizenship. Popu lar government has demonstrated in Its 124 yer-s of trial here its stability and seourity and Its efficiency as the best In strument of national development aud tbe best safeguard to human rights. When the Sixth congress assembled In November, 18 10, the population of the United States was 6,808,438.; Lt is now 76,304.799. Then we had 36 sta Now we have 46. Then Our territory "?. V‘ consisted of 909,05|0 eq u&rc miles. ,Jt ! now mHsffijgj*^ Education, religion) ' morality ’b ; y.;* • ", .*• ' have kept pace with our advancement In other directions and,/Whileextend ing its power, the government has ad hered to its foundation principles and abated none of them in dealing wNh our new peoples and posaeajrttfitt, A uatton so preserved anj blessed gives rover ent thanks.to God and Invokes His guidance and 1 the cont.inuanae of His oare and favor. ' AS TO CHINA.' The recent troubles in China spring from the anti-foreign agitation, which for tbe past three years has gained strength in the northern provinces. The telegraph and the railway spreading over their land, the steam ers plying on their way, the merchant and the missionary penetrating year by year farther to the Interior became lo the Chinese minds types of an alien in vasion changing the coarse of their na tional life and fraught with vague fore bodings of disaster to their b -liefs and their self control. The matter of indemnity for our wronged citizens is a question or grave concern. Measured In money alone a sufficient reoaration may prove to be beyond >he ability of China to meat, All the powers concur in emphatic die clalmers of aay purpose of aggrandize ment through the dismemberment ot tbe empire. 1 am disposed to think that due compensation may be made In part by Increased guarantees of security fer foreign rights and Immunities, and, most important ef all. by the opening of China to the equal commerce of all the world. PARIS EXPOSITION. At the Paris exposition the c:ntrl bution ot the United States wae not only the largest foreign display, bat wan among the earliest In place and most orderly In arrangement. LYNCHING. Lynching must not be tolerated iffia great and civilized country like the United States. Courts, not mobs, mast execute the penalties of the law, The iffeervatlon of order, the right of dis cussion, the integrity of the courts, and tide orderly administration of justice 0 must continue forever the rock of safety .upon wl 'oh ear government securely rests r, THE TREASURY. It is gratifying to be able to state tlm the sepias revenues for tbe fisoal .year ended June 30, 1900, were $79,- 527,060.18, Jsnr .(he six preceding years we bad *)niy deficits, tbe aggre gate of wbichifrom 1894 to 1899, inclu sive, amounted to *283,022,991.14. The reoeipts for tbe year from all sources, exclusive of postal revenues, aggre gated $567,240,851,89, and expenditures for all purposes except for tbe admin istration of the postal department, ag gregated *487,713,791.71. SHIP SUBSIDY. I am satisfied tbe judgment of the oountry favors the policy of aid to our merchant marine, whioh will broaden our commerce and markets and up build our sea-carrying capacity for the produots of agriculture ar.d manufac ture, which, with th increase of our navy, means more work and wages to our countrymen, as well as a safeguard to American interests in ei?ry part of the world. THE TRUSTS. “It is apparent that uniformity of action legislation upon this subject in the several Stares is much to be de sired.” THE PHILIPPINES. In my last annual message 1 dwel* at soma length open tbe oondition of affairs in tbe Philippines. While seek ing lo impress npon you that the grave responsibility of the future govern ment of those islands rests with tbe oongress of tbe United Etates. I ab stained from reoommending at that time a specific ati) final form of gov ernment for tbe territory notnally held by the'United States foroas, and as long as iosnrreotion continues, that the military must neoetearily be sn preme. REDUCE THE WAR TAX. r— * 1 recommend that congress at its present naaioa reduce tbe internal revenue taxes imposed to meet tbe ex pense* of tbs war with Spain in tbe rum of *30,000,006. This reduction should be seoured by tbe ramiasion of those taxes whioh experience bre shown to be tbe most burdensome to the Industries of the people. PORTO RICO. The civil government of Porto Rico, provided for by the act of congress.! approved April 12,1900, is in success ful operation. The courts have been established. The governor and bis associates, working intelligently u. harmoniously, are meeting with com mendable auooess. FUTURE OF CUBA. On July 25, 1900, 1 dlreoted that a call for and election In Cubs for members of a constitutional con vention to frame a constitution on a basis for a_ stable and independent government on the Island. When the convention oonoludee its labor, I will transmit to the oongreas the constitu tion as framed by the convention for Us consideration, aud for auoh action as it may deem advisable. AGAINST A DECREASE. I recommend that the oongrore, at its present session, apportion repre sentation among the several Slates as provided by the Constitution. MISSIONARIES MASSACRED.
