HP HE "Souvenir" of 1895 is the first to contain recoras of men who sat in the 
* State House Extension to make and unmake laws tor the state. It was a 
Legislature remarkable for containing the largest proportion of members from 
one political party ever known. The House contained 194 Republicans and 
46 Democrats, while in the Senate there were only four Democrats to 36 
Republicans. There were not enough even of the former to secure a roll call. 
And yet there was no unusual partisan legislation attempted. The majority 
always passes more or less legislation against the protest of the minority. The 
business of the session, although of greater volume than ever, was completed 
decently and in order and prorogation reached at the unusually early date of 
June 5, or the earliest since 1SS8. The session of 1S95 was also remarkable for 
the unusual number of deaths among its members. One Senator and two 
Representatives elect died without taking the oath of office, while two died after 
having served several weeks, and one on the very morning of the day the 
Legislature was prorogued. This "Souvenir" contains the portrait of every 
"Legislator" of the state, whether in Senate or House or Congress, as well as all 
members of the Executive Department. Nearly all of the Staff and a good 
proportion of the Sergeant-at-arms' force are also represented. The pictures of 
the new House and of the old Senate chamber, included for the first time, make 
the volume more complete than ever as a Souvenir. It now contains not only 
the portraits of the members, their biographies and their autographs, but pictures 
also of the halls themselves in which they sat to legislate. If their successors 
serve the state as well as they, the people will be well served indeed.

(The following inscriptions on the tablets adjoining the present young and thrifty elm briefly 
state the main facts of interest) : 

"THE OLD ELM destroyed by a gale Feb. 15, 1876. This elm planted A.D. 1876." 
"THE OLD ELM. — This tree has been standing here for an unknown period. It is believed 
to have existed before the settlement of Boston, being fully grown in 1722; exhibited marks of old 
age in 1792, and was nearly destroyed by a storm in 1832. Protected by an enclosure in 1854 
J. V. C. Smith, Mayor."

Private Secretary. — Hexry Andrew Thomas was born in South Weymouth, 
Mass., July 29, 1856 ; educated in its public schools, and graduated at the High 
School with honors at seventeen, when he entered the Boston post-office as a 
clerk under Gen. W. L. Burt. By hard work and careful attention to his duties 
he was advanced through the various stages until 1889, when he was appointed 
by Postmaster-General Wanamaker superintendent of mails at the Boston post- 
office, in which position he remained until September 1893. In early part of 
1889, he was offered the position of superintendent of foreign mails at Washing- 
ton, but declined in order to keep up his old associations in Massachusetts. 
During the Harrison administration he was a prominent candidate for postmas- 
tership of Moston, and was the choice of the post-office department at Washing- 
ton as well as of a number of Congressmen and the Republican members of the 
Massachusetts Legislature. During the State campaign of 1893 he was an ear- 
nest advocate of the candidacy of Hon. F. T. Greenhalge for the governorship, 
and took a very active part in the preliminary canvass and in the campaign after- 
wards, which resulted in the election of Gov. Greenhalge. The first act of the 
governor after his inauguration was the appointment of Mr. Thomas as his pri- 
vate secretary. He has proven himself admirably fitted for this position, and his 
courteous manner and great tact have won for him a multitude of friends all over 
the State. In the public affairs of his native town he has always taken an active 
part, and has been instrumental in the formation of different organizations of a 
literary and social character, and is at present a member of the school board of 
Weymouth. On Memorial Day and other public occasions his voice has often 
been heard upon the platform, and his services as a public speaker are always in

The session of 1895 was remarkable for several things. It assembled in the 
hall of the old House at 1 1 a. m., Jan. 2, the last legislative body ever to assem- 
ble in that hall. Mr. St. John, of Haverhill, senior member-elect, called the mem- 
bers to order and prayer was offered by Rev. William S. White, of Foxboro, a 
member-elect. The House was formally organized in the usual manner In his 
address, on taking the chair of Speaker, Mr. Meyer called on Mr. Roe of Wor- 
cester to give the Honse the result of his extended research into the history of the 
State House, then being occupied for the last time. This was done by Mr. Roe 
in an eloquent and interesting address that held the closest attention of the mem- 
bers for upwards of an hour, and which was ordered printed as a House docu- 
ment. At 2.18, on motion of Mr. Tuttle of Boston, the House adjourned, and the 
sessions of a Massachusetts House of Representatives in this hall, which had been 
used for this purpose since 1798 were forever closed therein. 

On Tuesday, Jan. 15, each branch made choice of a United States senator 
for the ensuing six years. The vote in the Senate was: Hon. George F. Hoar, of 
Worcester, 34 ; Hon. John E. Russell of Leicester, 4. In the House Mr. Hoar 
had 180 votes, and Mr. Russell 39. The following day the two branches met in 
joint convention in the hall of the House, and President Butler declared Senator 
Hoar to have been re-elected. 

Representative Frank S. Bennett of Tyngsboro died, April 10, and Messrs. 
Hayes, George, Wheaton, Snow, F. H. Rourke, Roper, Hawkes, Holt and Put- 
nam were appointed a special committee to attend the funeral and prepare 
suitable resolutions. 

On Thursday, Jan. 10, Mr. Searls of Worcester announced the death o* 
Henry Y. Simpson, member-elect from the 21st Worcester district, and 
offered resolutions, which were spoken to by Messrs. Searls, Roe, J. H. Mellen 
and Speaker Meyer. 

The Middlesex county members had a reunion and dinner, April 24th. 

The Republicans had a caucus on nomination of treasurer, April 23d: Dem- 
ocrats, the 25th ; and Hon. E. P. Shaw was chosen on the 25th. 

Representative W. H. Burges of Kingston died, June 5, the last day of the 
session, and Messrs. Drew, Barker, Penniman, Eldredge, Harlow and Gray were 
appointed to attend the funeral and prepare resolutions. 

Senators Galloupe and Frothingham and Representatives Jordan, Gauss, 
Russell, Drury, Woodfall and Parker were a special committee to escort the 
remains of Congressman Cogswell from Washington to Salem. 

The Democrats had a reunion and a dinner, April 16. James H. Mellen 
presided and C. I. Quirk was toast-master. Speeches were made by Messrs. 
John F. Fitzgerald, Josiah Quincy, George Fred Williams, and John W. 

The Senators, through Mr. Durant, presented President Butler, as a testi- 
monial, an elegant colonial sideboard, Messrs. Corbett, Bessom and Southard 
also speaking to the resolutions : through Mr. Quinn, seconded by Mr. Miller, 
a beautiful rug to Clerk Coolidge ; and through Mr. Morse a fine couch to 
Doorkeeper Remington. The Representatives, through Mr. Moriarty, seconded 
by Messrs. Harwood, Bates, C. G. Bancroft, Stanley, Sleeper, Young and Shea, 
presented to Speaker Meyer as a testimonial a solid silver salver; and, through 
Mr. Spring, to Clerk McLaughlin a set of Parkman's works. 



One of the most interesting ceremonies of the session was that attending the 
transfer of the "Ancient Codfish" from the old hall of the House of Represen- 
tatives to the new. This was on Thursday, March 7. At 3 p. m. the subject 
was taken up by special assignment. Consent was given to enter in full on the 
journal of the House resolutions from the Business Men's Association of the 
City of Gloucester in tavor of retaining this emblem of their industry, symbolizing 
the sources of their original wealth, the nursery of mariners who manned their 
frigates, our issues and struggles with England ; in 1S94 the fleets of Gloucester 
took from the ocean fifty-three million (53,000,000) pounds of this valuable fish 
product. Messrs. Woodfall of Rockport, Tarr of Gloucester, Wadden of 
Marblehead, Brown of Gloucester, Jordan of Salem. Foss of Cottage Citv, 
Russell of Salem, Cook of Provincetown, Irwin of Northampton, Roberts of 
Chelsea, Gallivan of Boston, Bullock of Manchester, Stocker of Beverly and 
Gardner of Nantucket were appointed a special committee to bring the Codfish 
from the old hall to the new. Escorted by the sergeant-at-arms they proceeded 
to the old hall and took position in front of the figure. It was just 4.12 when 
Assistant Doorkeeper John Kinnear lowered down the Ancient Emblem to the 
hand barrow wrapped in the American flag, which had been made ready for its 
transportation. Messenger Thomas Pedrick of Lynn took the forward end of 
the barrow. Messenger Sidney Gardner of Gloucester, the rear; and Messenger 
B. F. B. Willson of Boston walked beside to steady the same. When the House 
was reached, Messenger Edwin Gould of Reading was added to the force of 
bearers, and as they entered the House the Ancient Emblem was raised upon 
their shoulders. As the door was entered, Senator Sylvanus Smith of Gloucester, 
a fit representative of rock-ribbed Essex, bowed low in appreciative reverence of 
the symbol of his county's glory. The Speaker rapped the House to rise, and 
so with honors of state the Ancient Emblem of one of Massachusetts most 
important industries was received back to the fold. Messrs. Roberts of Chelsea, 
Irwin of Northampton and Gallivan of Boston, a special committee to prepare a 
complete history of the "Codfish," made their report. Mr. Gauss of Salem intro- 
duced a resolve for the printing and distribution of this report : and Mr. Roberts 
of Chelsea put in a resolve for the proper painting of the Emblem and its sus- 
pension from the ceiling and above the Speaker's chair. But later in the 
session, owing to an objection by the architect that this position would not be 
harmonious with his design of decorating, it was suspended between the pillars 
of the main gallery and directly over the main entrance.
