absolutely offensive" to the

been offensive to me in the

as judge. And, with the utmost

setting apart of one day in each
year as an occasion of special;
thanksgiving to Almighty God

tender significance. It enriches
domestic life. It summons un-

''Seldom has this nation had
greater cause for profound
lence has invaded our shores
Liberal employment waits upon
labor. Abundant crops have re
warded the efforts of the hus
bandman. Increased prtrte
have come to the home. The
national finances have been
strengthened, and public credit
has been sustained and made
firmer. In all branches of in
dustry and trade there has been
an unequalled degree, of. pros
perity, while thei;c has been a
steady gain in the moral and ed
ucational growth of our national
character. Churches and schools
have flourished. American pa
triotism has been exalted.. Those
engaged in maintaining the horidr
of the flag with such signal suc
cess have been in a large degree
spared from disaster and disease.
An honorable peace has been
ratified with a foreign nation
with which we were at war, and
we are now on friendly relations
with every power on earth.
"The trust we have assumed
for the benefit of the people of
Cuba has been faithfully ad
vanced. There is a marked
progress toward the restoration
of healthy industrial conditions,
and under wise sanitary regula
tions the island has enjoyed unu- j
sual exemption from the scourge ;
of fever. The hurricane which
swept over our new possession
of Porto Rico, destroying the
homes and property of the in
habitants, called forth the in
stant sympathy of the people of
the United States who were swift ;
to respond with generous aid
to the sufferers. While the in
surrection still continues in the
island of Luzon, business is re
suming its activity, and conti- j
dence in the good purposes of
the United States is being rap
idly established throughout the
newly acpaired islands, as well
as bv those who mav bo at sea or
soiouniimr i a foreiu' i lajivls; and
I advise? i hat on this day religious
oxerci-es shall be conducted in
the churches or meting places
of all denominations, in order
that in the social features of the
day its real significance may not
be lost sight of, but fervent
prayers may be offered to the
Most High for a continuance of
the divine guidance without
which man's efforts are vain, and
for divine consolation to thoso
whose kindred and friends have
sacrificed their lives for country,
"I recommend also that on
this day so far as. may bo found
practical, labor shall cease from
its accustomed toil, and charity
abound toward the sick, the
needy and the poor.

set my hand and caused the sea!
