Thj.sfarthe ixsitiou of our govern
ment has been that of an attentive but
impartial observer of the unfortunate
ionfliet. Emphasising our policy of im
partial neutrality in suha condition aa
low exists, i deemed it necessary to
iisavow in a manner notto be inisun
lerstood, the unauthorized action of our
late naval commander in those water?
n siiluting the revolted Urazilian ad-
niral, being indisposed to countenance'
in act calculated to give gratuitous
ianction to the local insurrection.
THE CHILEAN CLAIMS.
The convention between onr govern
nent and Chile, having for its object
I he settlement and adjustment of the
lemandsof the two countries against
;ach other, has been made effective by
the organization of the claims commis
jion provided for.
The two governments failing to agree
anon the third- member of the commis
uon, the good offices of the president of
the. Swiss republic Were invoked, as pro
vided in the treaty, and the selection of
;he Swiss representative in this coun
ty to complete the organization wras
gratifying alike to the United States
eoan's break reviewed.
The vexatious question of so-called
legation asylums for offenders against
the state and its laws, was presented
Ijiew in Chile by the unauthorized ac
tion of the late United States minister
in receiving into his official residence
two persons who had just failed in an
attempt at revolution, and against whom
criminal charges were pending, grow-
ing out of a former abortive tu-.turb-tnce.
The doctrine of asylum as applied to
this case is not sanctioned bv the best
precedents, and, when allowed, tends to
fncourage sedition aid strife. Under no
circumstances can the representatives of
this government be permitted, under the
ill-defined fiction of extra territoriality,
Jo interrupt the- administration oi ! ;crim-
, trial - justice in the countries to which
i"they arc accredited. A temperate de
rnand having been made by the Chilean
roverninent for the correction of this
jonduct in the instance mentioned, the
, minister, was instructed to nq longer
a arbor the offenders.
' AS TO THE CEiET LAW. -

the Geary law, requiring the registration
jf all Chinese entitled to residence in the

act within the time prescribed, met with

faith seemed to apply, for the certificates

i the supreme court; and on May 15th,
1893. a decision was made by that tri-

OUR GROWING NAVY.
Tlie report of the secretary of the navy
contains a history of the operations ol
his department during the past year "
and exhibits a most gratifying condition
of the personnel of our navy, lie pre
sents a satisfactory account of the pro
gress which has been made in the con
struction of vessels and makes a n umbel
of recommendations ta which attentioa
Is especially invited.
Wuile l am distinctly in favor of oon
sistently pursuing the policy we hava
inaugurated of building up a thorough
nnd efficient navy, I cannot refrain from
the suggestion that congress should
carefully take into account the unfin
ished vessels on our hands and the! de
pleted condition of our treasury in -considering
the propriety of an appropria
tion at this time to begin new work.
THE CIVIL SERVICE.
The continued intelligent execution
of the civil service law and the increas
ing approval by the people by its oper
ations are most gratifying.
1 am, if possible, more than ever con
vinced of the incalculable benefits con
ferred by the civil service law, not
only in its effect upon the public .ser
vice, but also what is even more im
portant in its effect in elevating the
tone of political life generally.
FOR TARIFF REFORM.
After a hard struggle, tariff reform
is directly before us. Nothing so iu.
portant elaims our attention and not e
nig so clearly presents itself as both
an opportunity- and a duty, an oppor
tunity to deserve the gratitude of
fellow citizens and a duty im. 7v d.
upon us by our oft-repeated proi..
sious and by the emphatic mandate of
After full discussion, oiir country
men have spoken in favor of this n
form, and they have confided the wo
of its accomplishment to the hands
those who are solemnly pledged to .'.
Nothing should intervene to dbtrs
our attention or disturb our effort -til
this reform is accomplished by w.
and careful legislation.
T1IK WILSON BILL,
A measure has been prepared by the
appropriate congressional committee,
embodying tariff reform on the lines
herein suggested, which will be
promptly submitted for legislative ac
tion. It is the result of much patriotic
and unselfish work, and I believe t
deals with its subject consistent
as thoroughly asexisting eooun..
FOR AN INCOMK TAX.
The committee, after full considera
tion, and to provide against a temporary
deficiency which may exist Ik fore t!
busieess of the country adjusts its
to the new tariff schedules, have wi.
embraced in their-schedule a few ac
tional internal revenue taxes, inchnii
a small tax upon income derived fro
certain corporate investments:
These new assessments are not only
absolutely just and easily lnirne. bin
thev have the further merit of bein
sucli as can be remitted without unfa
vorable business disturbance whenever
the necessity for their imposition- nu
longer exists. . .
In my great desire for the succ ,'
this measure, I eannot restrain the-sug
gestitm that its success can only I e. at
tained by means of unselfish conns 1 on
the part of tariff reform, and as a r suit
of their willingness to subordinate ;er
Konal tiesires and ambitions to the en
eral gootl. The local interests afT -tt-d
by the proposed reform are so rmm
and so varied that if all are i;,.-. T .
upon the legislation emlodying the- e
form must inevitably fail.
in coxcu siox.
In conclusion, 'ray intense feeling '
responsibility impels me to invoke f
the manifold interests of a generous ...
confiding people the most seruo
care, and to pledge my willing bdj.?;
to every legislative effort for the Ad
vancement of the greatness aud pros
perity of our countrv. 1
