PREFACE. 

The Souvenir of 1S96 represents a Legislature that was called to deal with 
more iniportant questions than usual, and that had unusual experiences to meet. 
Never before in the memory of this generation, has a whole state been called upon 
to mourn for its chief executive, removed by death from his high office. The 
lamented Greenhalge, called away while in the midst of the work to which he was 
giving his best thoughts and noblest endeavors, was mourned sincerely by the 
whole state because he has been in the best sense the Governor of the whole state. 
The great question of better transportation facilities, which culminated in the 
Southern Union passenger station bill: and the Pipe Line bill, by which it was 
proposed to give the people of the state cheaper gas for fuel and illumination, were 
bills which, of themselves, would have justified the claim for a great public work 
accomplished. This was the Legislature also which sent to the people for judg- 
ment the resolve for biennial elections of members of the state government; and 
it also passed a bill fixing for the next ten years the lines for councillor and sen 
atorial districts, and allotted the number of representatives to each county for the 
same period. It abolished the days of grace on notes; appropriated $450.- 
coo for finishing and furnishing parts of the new State House; and $375,000 
for the "preservation"of the '-Bulfinch front" of the old State House. It sent 
no committee on a"junketing" trip outside the state. And many other notable things 
it did, but spaci forbids their enumeration here. The following pages show you the 
portraits, give their biographical sketches, and show the autographs of the men in 
Senate, House and Executive Council, who helped do this great work; as well as 
the members of the Xitional Legislature that represent the old Bay State in 
either branch.

NOTES OF THE SESSION. 

[The purpose of the "Notes" is to include some specially prominent features of 
the session, or some matters of interest that would not appear in the journals of 
either branch.] 

The Legislature was prorogued at 12.20, p. m., Wednesday, June 10. 

The House Democrats chose Mr. Quirk of Boston as chairman of the 
caucus committee of the party. 

In the Senate, March 4, resolutions upon the death of ex-Gov. George D. 
Robinson were adopted, and in the House a few days later. 

After the committees were appointed, Senator Sanger of Suffolk resigned 
from three of the four to which he had been appointed, accepting only a position 
on the judiciary. 

In the House the vote on passing the biennial elections resolves to engross- 
ment was 175 to 50 with five pairs; in the Senate the vote was 24 yea, eight nay, 
four paired and four not on record. 

On Monday, Feb. 24, Gov. Greenhalge sent to the Legislature a special mes- 
sage announcing the death of ex-Gov. Robinson and an order was adopted for a 
joint committee to attend the funeral. 

On March 2, the House adopted a resolution of sympathy, offered by Mr- 
Clarke of Wellesley, to Gov. Greenhalge in his serious illness, and they were adop- 
ted in the Senate on the following day. 

The only contested seat in the House was decided by giving the seat, that of 
the 22d Suffolk, to Mr. W. H. Morgan, who was decided by the majority of the 
committee, to have one majority. 

The Republican members had a dinner at the United States hotel, Monday, 
May 25, the invited guests being Acting-Governor Wolcott, and Chairman George 
H, Lyman of the Republican state central committee. 

The committee on woman suffrage was abolished, and the matters pertaining 
to that subject were divided between the committees on election laws, and consti- 
tutional amendments. The House committee on leave of absence was also abol- 
ished. 

Senator Southard of Bristol offered resolutions in support of the Monroe 
doctrine in the Senate, Wednesday, Jan. i, but they were not finally acted upon 
until April 29, when they were adopted in the modified form in which they had 
passed the House after much delay. 

In April Hon. Joseph B. Foraker of Ohio, Hon. John M. Thurston of 
Nebraska and Gen. James Longstreet of Georgia, visited the Senate and were 
presented to the members, after which they briefly addressed the members. The 
guests were then given a similar reception in the House, 



MASSACHUSETTS LEGISLATORS, 1896. 189 

An investigation was had of the charge by Senator Sanger that Mr. John 
Shepard aitempted to influence him improperly on the bill relating to examina- 
tion of assessment life insurance companies. The committee reported that the 
evidence showed a misunderstanding between the gentlemen. 

The House Republicans nominated Representative Sleeper of Winthrop for 
clerk in place of E. A. McLaughlin, who had been clerk for 13 years, by a vote 
of 89 to 76. Mr. McLaughlin was opposed simply on the ground that he was a 
Democrat. In the whole House Mr. Sleeper had 122 votes to loS for Mr. 
McLaughhn. 

The House, on the recommendation of the Speaker, voted to practically con- 
solidate the committees on finance and taxation. The Senate declined to take 
similar action, so the House members on the new committees on ways and means 
were also placed on taxation, to the great detriment of the efficiency of their ser- 
vice. 

After the close of the session on Friday, Feb. 28, the hall of the House was 
given up to a delegation of Lowell citizens, headed by Mayor Courtney, who came 
to present to the state a fine marble bust of Gov. Greenhalge. The presentation 
speech was made by the mayor, and Lieut. Gov. Wolcott accepted the gift on 
behalf of the state. 

The House had the unusual spectacle of having a witness before an investi- 
gating committee brought before it to compel him to answer certain questions. 
It was in the Norfolk county case, and the witness was Henry N. Bates, of Hyde 
Park. The result was that he agreed to answer the questions privately to the 
committee, they to make them public if the public good demanded. 

The Senate of 1896 contained 33 Republicans and seven Democrats. The 
House contained 182 Republicans and 58 Democrats. Senator Neill of Bristol 
was the senior member in that branch, and Representative St. John of Haverhill, 
who was a member in 1866 from Worcester, was the senior member of the House. 
Of the 240 members of the House, 166 were born in Massachusetts, and 17 in 
Maine and 10 in Vermont and 12 in New Hampshire. There were 35 lawyers, 
II farmers, 12 merchants, 10 clerks, 8 journalists, 7 physicians; and not over five 
from any other single vocation. 

Not for 71 years has the state been called to mourn the death of its chief 
magistrate. But, after an illness of several days. Gov. Greenhalge died at his 
home in Lowell, March 5, at 12.30 A. M. His Honor the Lieutenant Governor 
communicated this fact to the Legislature by a special message. The Senate; on 
motion of Mr. Pearson of Lowell (Middlesex) referred the message to a joint spec- 
ial committee, with the President and Messrs. Pearson, Galloupe of Essex and 
Roe of Worcester as members from that branch, to report what action should 
be taken by the General Court. In the House, on motion of Mr. Hayes of Low- 
ell, concurrent action was taken, and the Speaker and Messrs. Meyer of Cam- 
bridge, Hayes of Lowell, Slade of Fall River, George of Haverhill, Utley of 
Brookline, Tolman of Pittsfield, and Moriarty of Worcester were joined on the 
part of the House. The committee recommended a public memorial service in 
Mechanics' Hall, with a memorial address by Hon. Henry Cabot Lodge. Res- 
olutions upon his death were adopted in each branch also, and all other cus- 
tomary honors paid.
