General Davis said he did not intend

to preserve order.

Review of the War.
The president reviews the war with
Spain at greit length. In referring to
the controveisy with Spain which led
up to the war he takes up the thread
of the narrative where it terminated In
his last annual message and concludes:
It was honestly due to our friendly rela
tions with Spain that she should be given
a reasonable chance to realise her expec
tations of reform, to which she had be
come irrevocably committed. -
It became evident, however, that the
proposed plans were barren of good re
sults. No tangible relief was afforded the
reconcentrados, among whom the rate of
mortality frightfully increased. The prof
fered expedient of zones of cultivation
proved illusory, hd It was apparent that
nothing save the physical exhaustion of
Spain or the Cubans and the practical
ruin of the island of Cuba could resutt
from the struggle then in progress.
Resuming the war narrative, the
president directs attention to the meas
ures, including the voting without op
position of an appropriation of $50,000,
000, taken to place the country on a war
footing-, and adds:
It is sufficient to say that the outbreak
of war, when it did come, found our na
tion not unprepared to meet the conflict.
The wreck of the battleship Maine In
Havana harbor is thus referred to:
It is a striking evidence of the poise and
sturdy good sense distinguishing our na
tional character that this shocking blow,
falling upon a generous people already
deeply touched by preceding events In
Cuba, did not move them to an Instant,
desperate resolve to tolerate no longer the
existence of a condition of danger and
disorder at our doors that made possible
such a deed by whomsoever wrought.
Effort to Avert War.
-Reference is made to "the apprehen
sion of coming strife felt by the con
tinental powers, voiced in the address
to the president thgpugh their embas
sadors and envoys 4md to the presi
dent's reply thereto. Still animated,
however, by the hope of a peaceful so
lution of the difficulty and obeying the
dictates of duty the president relaxed
fto effort to bring about a speedy end
ing of the Cuban struggle.
Negotiations with the Madrid gov
ernment proved futile so far as prac
tical results were concerned, and then
It was the president presented the ques
tion to congress, saying:
In the name of humanity, in the name
of civilization, in behalf of endangered
American interests which give us the
right and duty to speak and to act, the
war in Cuba must stop.
The result of this statement of the
case was the adoption of the memorable
joint resolution by congress declaring
the purpose of the United States to
intervene between the Spaniards and
Cubans. Following swiftly upon the
enactment of the resolution came the
severance of diplomatic relations be
tween the two countries, the proclama
tion of a blockade of Cuban ports, the
call for volunteers and the formal dec
laration of the existence of a state of
war. All other governments were Im
mediately notified of the existence of
war and each proclaimed neutrality.
The president says:
It Is not among the least gratifying in
cidents of the struggle that the obliga
tions of neutrality were impartially dis
charged by all, often under delicate and
The president reviews at length the
work of preparation for war, referring
particularly to the enlistment of the
volunteers, to the material increase of
the navy in both men and ships, and to

the protection of the seaboard coast
The Popnlar Bond Issne.
As to the authorized loan of $200,03),
000 which was taken entirely by small
bidders, the president says:
This was a most encouraging and sig
nificant result, showing the vast resources
of the nation and the determination of the
people to uphold their country's honor.
Taking up chronologically the events
of the war, the president reviews them
carefully. The first encounter was the

The final session of the Fifty-fifth

The report of the commission charg
ed with devising a system of govern
ment for the Hawaiian Islands was pre
sented to congress Tuesday. It provides
for territorial government of Hawaii
and admits to citizenship all persons
except Chinese and Japanese. In the
house the army and navy deficiency bill
was presented. The house transacted
no business, adjourning early as a trib
ute to memories of deceased members.
The senate gave some attention to
the bill amending existing law relating
to registry for foreign built ships
wrecked in the United States arid pur
chased by citizens of this country. Sen
ator Vest introduced a resolution de
claring that the United States coud
not, under the constitution, acquire ter
ritory with the idea of holding it per
manently as a colony. Senator Hale,
chairman of the naval affairs commit
tee, introduced a bill to revive the
grades of admiral and vice admiral.
In the senate Wednesday, upon a mo
tion to confirm the Hawaiian commis
sion in' executive session, a long de
bate upon the propriety of senators ac
cepting appointments upon presi
dential commissions occurred. Mr.
John Hay was confirmed as secretary
of state without opposition. Senator
Hawley introduced a bill drawn by
General Miles for the increase ofthe
regular army to 100,000 men. It also
provides for the revival of the ranks
of general and lieutenant general.
The house passed the anti-ticket
scalping bill without amendment by a
vote of 119 to 101. Chairman Hull of
the committee on military affairs in
troduced a bill for the reorganization
of the army. It differs in many essen
tial particulars from the Miles bill in
troduced m the senate. While prorid

Referring lo the future policy of the
administration respecting our con

I do nat discuss at this time th govern

which will come to us as th result of the
war with Spain. Such discussion will be
appropriate after the treaty of peace shall
be ratified. In the mean time, and until

I renew so much of my recommendation
of December. 1897. as follows:
"That when any of the United States
notes are presented for redemption in
gold and are redeemed tn gold such notes
shall be kept and set apart and only paid
out In "exchange for gold. This la an ob
vious duty. If the holder of the United
States note prefers the gold and gets It
from the government, he should not re
ceive back from the government a United
Spates note without paying gold In ex
cbAng for It.
"The reason for this Is made all th
more apparent when the government Is
sues an Interest bearing debt to pro rid
gold for the redemption of United States
notes a noninterest bearing debt. Surely
it snouic. not pay tnem out again except
on demand and for gold. If they ar put
out in any other way they may return
again, to be followed by another bond
Issue to redeem another Interest bearing
debt to redeem noninterest bearing debt,"
