I have regarded it as my duty in for
mer messages to the congress to urge
the revision of the tariff upon princi
ples of protection. It was my judg
ment that the customs duties ought to
be revised downward, but that the re
duction ought not to be below a rate
which would represent the difference
in the cost of production between the
article in question at home and abroad
and for this and other reasons I vetoed
several bills which were presented to
me in the last session of this congress
Now that a new congress has been
elected on a platform of n tariff for
revenue only rather than a protective
tariff, and is to revise the tariff on that
basis. It is needless for me to occupy
the time of this congress with argu
ments or recommendations in favor of
a protective tariff.

Under the Influence of this study
definite and effective steps have been
taken toward army reorganization so
far as such reorganization lies within

has been no difference of policy In the
treatment of the organization of our
foreign garrisons from those of troops
within the United Suites. The differ difference
ence difference of situation is vital, and the for foreign
eign foreign garrison should be prepared to
defend itself at an instant's notice
against a foe who may command the

States, it cannot count upon re-eu-forcetnenls
or recruitment. It Is an

of the first attack in case of war.

fect has leen remedied as to the Phil Philippines

of twelve reduced regiments has been
replaced by a garrison of six regi regiments

same number of riflemen at an esti estimated
mated estimated economy in cost of maintenance
of over $l,0co.000 per year. This gar

the Islands. The officers and men
composing these units will, however,
serve a regular tropical detail, as usual,
thus involving no greater hardship

creasing the effectiveness of the garri
The Home Army.
Simultaneously with the foregoing
steps the war department has been
proceeding with the reorganization ol
the army at home. The formerly dls
associated units are being united into
a tactical organization of three divi
sions. each consisting of two or threi
brigades of infantry and. so far as
practicable, a proper proportion of di divisional
visional divisional cavalry and artillery. Of
course the extent to which this reform
can be carried by the executive is
practically limited to a paper organiza
tion. The scattered units can be
brought under a proper organization,
but they will remain physically scat scattered
tered scattered until congress supplies the nec necessary
essary necessary funds for grouping them in
more concentrated posts.
Regular Army Reserve.
The new law provides that the sol soldier,
dier, soldier, after serving four years with col colors,
ors, colors, shall pass iuto a reserve for three
years. At his option he may go into
the reserve at the end of three years,
remaining there for four years. While
in the reserve he can be called and
only in such case will receive a stated
amount of pay for ajl of the period
in which he has beena member of the
reserve. The legislation is imperfect,
in my opinion, in certain particulars,
but it is a most Important step in the
right direction, and I earnestly hope
that it will be carefully studied and
perfected by congress.
The National Guard.
Under existing law the national
guard constitutes, after the regular
army, the first line of national defense.
Its organization, discipline, training
and equipment under recent legislation
have been assimilated, as far as possi
ble, to those of the regular army, and
its practical efficiency under the effect
of this training has very greatly In
creased. Our citizen soldiers under
present conditions have reached a stage
of development beyond which they can
not reasonably be asked to go without
further direct assistance in the form
of pay from the federal government
On the other hand, such pay from the
national treasury would not be justi
fied unless it produced a proper equlva
lent in additional efficiency on the part
of the national guard.
The organized militia today cannot
be ordered outside of the limits of the
United States and thus cannot lawful
ly be used for general military pur
poses. The officers and men are ambi ambitious

opinion, adequately meets these condi

those adopted for the regular army are
being formulated by the war college

An enormous Increase in the com

been made since they were virtually
granted full access to our markets
three years ago, with every prospect
of increasing development and diversi

control such development is bound to
If the task we have undertaken is

A present declaration even of future

Important defect in the existing gen

my opinion, grant sufficient power to

with the construction of such dams to

The Panama Canal.
During the past year the work of

say that the report of Colonel Goethals
should allay any apprehension on this
point. It is gratifying to note that

Reform of Court Procedure.
I am glad to bring to the attention
of congress the fact that the supreme
court has radically altered the equity
rules governing the procedure on the
equity side of all federal courts, and
though, as these changes have not been
yet put In practice so as to enable us
to state from actual results what the
reform will accomplish, they are jof
such a character that we can reason reasonably
ably reasonably prophesy that they will greatly
reduce the time and cost of litigation
in such courts. The court has adopted
many of the shorter methods of the
present English procedure, and, while
it may take a little while for the pro profession
fession profession to accustom Itself to these
methods, it la certain greatly to facili facilitate
tate facilitate litigation. The action of the su supreme
preme supreme court has been so drastic and so
full of appreciation of the necessity for
a great reform in court procedure that
I have no hesitation In following up
this action with a recommendation
Which I foreshadowed in my message
of three years ago, that the sections of
the statute governing the procedure in
the federal courts on the common law
side should be so amended as to give
to the supreme court the same right to
make rules of procedure In common
law as they have since the beginning
of the court exercised in equity.
I do not doubt that a full considera consideration
tion consideration of the subject will enable the
court while giving effect to the sub substantial
stantial substantial differences in right and reme remedy

law and the system of equity so to
unite the two procedures into the form
of one civil action and to shorten the
procedure In such civil action as to
furnish a model to all the state courts
exercising concurrent jurisdiction with
the federal courts of first Instance.
Under the statute now in force the
common law procedure in each federal
court is made to conform to the pro procedure
cedure procedure in the state in which the court
Is held. In these days, whe we

I say again that I think no act can
