"Will, in your opinion, tho ap
proaching tension of Congress bo
onu of r.ny more tlinn ordinary
iiuporttinee; nnd, if so, wliyi" in
quired tho reporter.
"1 believe thu lirst cession of
thu Fifty-Iirt congress will, by
muon of the ninny important
questions, national nnd interuu
tiouul, that must necessarily come
ii j for cousideintioii, be the most
iuiort:int of any since those ses
sions during which the great ro
construction ineabiires were enact
ed. "Why this will bo so, in my
opinion, is in n measure because
of the prodigious growth and ex
pansion of tho country in resj est
of population, wealth, commerce
(internal and external), the exten
sion of government Iinc3 by the
creation of new 6tates, the" just
claim of these new states upon the
general government for national
aid in various directions, tho mar
velous extension of rnilromls, of
transportation and commercial av
enues of various kinds throughout
the vast eiupiro of the Wut and
South, the changed and still tapid
ly changing trade relations be
tween the (Tiirerent sections of the
country and between the I'liitcd
States as a whole and our neigh
boiiiiL? countries, north ami i-ontli
of this continent, the great in
crease in the number ami import
ance of legal controversies in the
I'eueral courts, and the consequent
inadequacy of the Federal judicia
ry machinery to meet the demands
of the neonle, to say nothini' of
thu many new and important sub
jects that must come up for con
sideration, Mien as the irrigation
of the arid lai ds of thu West and

of our coasts, legislative! restraint
of trusts, the curbing of the un

ninny of which is of u character to
new, complex, and intricate, re
quiring careful construction ns to
questions of constitutional jwwer
as well as mere matters of policy,
ns to command the oereie of the
very best judgment of congress,
both in a constitutional and polit
ieid serso. Among the important
subjects thnt must bo dealt with
are, of course, many old and ordi
nary ones, such as the revision of
tuo larin, tno suojeci oi coiunuu
and regulation thereof, and of the
currency generally, tho regulation
of commerce between this and for
eign countries, and among the sev
eral states - the lattor throng in
terstate commerce legislation, by
way of propor iiinondinents to the
present interstate commerce act,
and the former in such reasonable
constitutional restrictions ns tuny
not be reached by trwity stipula
tion nnd which still may be doom
ed wise nnd necessary to the prop
er protection of .American inter
ests, such ns the absolute oxclu
sion of Chinese laborers ami other
objectionable immigrants, the or
dinary and extraordinary appro
priations of the government, and
so on. Hut even these old sub
jects must, by reason of the mar
velous growth and radically chang
ed conditions, territorially, com
mercially, and otherwise, not
alone i n't he United States, but in
all thu civilized nations of thu
earth with which we aro brought
in closer contact from day to day,
ami which conm-oss must not losu
sight of, must bo approached in a
somewhat different manner, with
more enlarged vision and with a
deposition on tho part of congress
to get, in a measure, out of tho
old ruts of legislation, through
and along which congress could
very properly and safely move
when our population, trade, occu
pied territory, number of states,
eommueo and business of tho
country generally, legal, political,
and otherwise, were but ono half
or out'-third or what they are at
the piv.-ent day or w hat they were
