OCT 21 1910 a.vvA, -
STATE HOUSE, BOSTON.
The Legislature of igio passed more bills than any other on rec-
ord. And that was not its only claim to distinction. It had a genuine
"investigation." that of the Lyman School; a couple of "near investi-
gations" — the milk question and the Southbridge Savings bank irregu-
larities; also it authorized the investigation by special commissions
of "The High Cost of Living" and of the securities of the N. Y.,
N. H. & H. R. R. Company. The results of these investigations must
be sought in the daily papers. They served the usual and chief end
of all investigations — that of a safety-valve and a scapegoat, to use
a mixed metaphor. The tax payers foot the bills; and if they are sat-
isfied certainly the investigators ought to be. Taken altogether it
was a very "strenuous" session. Corporation questions were again
prominent; the farmers came into "the limelight" more than ever;
labor issues were tangled up with liquor issues; Columbus got a state
holiday in his honor, which was refused Lincoln; the widow of the
Confederate General Pickett was received with applause in the House,
to which she made a brief address; the Legislative dinner at the
Quincy House was something not to be forgotten: the mock session
of the afternoon of prorogation was orderly and decorous to an un-
known degree, but was marred by the disorder of the subsequent
evening, the Republicans wcr- alleged to be directed by a prominent
Democrat; an unus;ua.i iuiinher o ( 'booms" wtrli bunched: the Repub-
licans had their "insurgents" and f hc Democrats their Riley; the
House was adjourned out of respec to the funeral of King Edward,
an act without precedent but most commendable and honored as such
by the English vbe-corsu 1 iji Hon".-]: .mllio-is vfrerc appropriated for
East and South iloston 'harbor' improvements; it passed "sane and
safe" fireworks legislation. In iqio also the number of deaths was
unprecedented, three senators and three representatives, and one rep-
resentative on the day ofter prorogation. And yet there is no doubt
that this Legislature reflected quite accurately the sentiments of its
constituency, for they were more or less in the transition stage. This
was clearly shown by the passage of the bill authorizing direct nomi-
nations in such districts as may so vote. "The People" are evidently
coming into their own and propose to choose their own servants.
"Publicity" is to be the safeguard of Liberty, as well as our old friend
"Eternal Vigilance." The day of political earthquakes may be at
hand, but reserved seats on the band wagon will doubtless command
the usual premium, and will be handed around in the usual manner.

This hall has seen varied gatherings, but none of greater interest than that
of April 17, 1861. On that dby, the first volunteer company of the whole country,
during the late War of the Rebellion, assembled here, chose its officers, received
overcoats from the government and in an hour and a half from the time of assem-
bling was on its way to the front. The story, in more detail, is as follows: In
Cambridge, in i860, had been formed a company of "Wide Awakes" to help elect
President Lincoln. Hon. J. M. S. Williams, congressman from that district,
promised them that if they would keep up their organization they could go to
Washington to see Lincoln inaugurated. But the United States government for-
bade the assembling of such bodies at the national capital. During the dark days
of February, 1861, several of the company agreed to volunteer if they were
needed, and, on the 14th of February, several of them signed an agreement to
that effect. First on the list was the name of John Kinnear, now first clerk of
Sergeant-at-Arms. In the first week in March, he, with a few others, visited
the State House and personally tendered their services to Governor Andrew. He
advised them that there was no immediate need of their services and that they
return to Cambridge, whence he would summon them if necessary. Then came
the news of the breaking out of rebellion. They at once visited the State House,
finding Governor and Council in session. Governor Andrew told them to return
to Cambridge and that they would receive orders in an hour. They returned and
the crder? speedily reached them. Then, again, they hastened to the State
House, many of their members leaving their work and throwing their tools into
the street. Reaching the State House, they assembled in Doric Hall, ninety-
seven of them. In a small adjoining room they chose officers, electing James
Prentice Richardson, now of Texas, as captain. They first went to the Old
Colony station, but were soon ordered to the "S. R. Spaulding," where they
embarked for Fortress Monroe, They were first assigned to the Fifth regiment,
but were soon transferred to the Third, becoming Company C. This was, with
out doubt, the first volunteer company of the Rebellion. It is a matter of history
that this prompt, loyal and general resDonse of this company, in contrast with the
scattering returns from more pretentious organizations, did much to encourage
the State authorities and "the great war Governor."
In ihis hall lay in state the body of Charles Sumner, Sunday, March 15, 1874,
where it was viewed by a multitude as vast as time would allow.
In this hall gathered the "Army of the Unemployed," February 20, 1894,
whence they were removed by detachments of the district and Boston police, but
without violence. They had just been addressed on the Capitol steps by

THE OLD SOUTH MEETING-HOUSE
Built in 1730, on the lot of Gov. John Winthrop, corner of Milk
and Washington streets, and dedicated in April of the same year. On
November 27. 1773. here was held the meeting at which it was re-
solved that the English tea should not be landed; and on December 16
here was held the meeting, with 7,000 people attending, before the
pouring of the tea into Boston harbor by the Sons of Liberty, dis-
guised as Mohawk Indians. Here Warren spoke in March. 1775, three
months before he was killed at the battle of Bunker Hill. In the siege
of Boston it was used as a riding-school by the British. Its external
appearance has not been changed for 150 years. No religious services
have been held here since 1872. Now occupied by a loan collection of
Revolutionary and other relics, the admission fees going to the pres-

Company. Called "The Cradle of Liberty."

As one of the foremist "Legislators" of Massachusetts (for he
was once a member of the Massachusetts House), it is eminently
proper to place here, close beside the "Old State House." this rare
but peculiarly interesting picture of Daniel Webster beneath his favor-

THE OLD STATE HOUSE
Built in 1748, on site of burned town hall, at the head of State
Street, Boston. In the foreground occurred the Boston Massacre oi
March 5, 1770. Been used as State House. City Hall, and Post Office.
British troops quartered here, 1768, and General Gage held council of
war here before battle of Bunker Hill. Declaration of Independence
read from balcony in view; from other end Washington reviewed pro
cession in 1780. Here State Constitution planned and ratified. Wil-
liam Lloyd Garrison took refuge here from mob, October, [835, it
being then used for City I [all.
