STAT£ HOUbt. BOSTON 

The Legislature of 1915 early found the meaning of "Efficiency"; and, 
having found it, proceeded to put it into practice. As a result, it established 
a new record for cleaning up the matters before it. The pace at which it 
went through the matters assigned it, both in committee hearings and in dis- 
posing of them after being reported upon, has never been surpassed. By 
the first of May it had so nearly disposed of its business that but little re- 
mained except certain railroad and similar important measures, such as al- 
ways require unusual consideration; and in spite of all this, in spite of un- 
usual delay on the railroad matters, including special messages from the 
Governor, prorogation was reached on June 4, the earliest date since 1905. 
In contrast with the House of 1914, which lacked a majority in any one party, 
that of 1915 was strongly Republican in both branches; and legislation al- 
ways proceeds more swiftly with a good working majority on one side or an- 
other politically. President Coolidge and Speaker Cox are entitled to much 
of the credit for the short session as they kept skilful guiding hands on all 
matters; work was well done even though done with neatness and despatch. 
Less new legislation was passed than usual, as it was deemed wise to let 
some of the most recent have a fair trial before shaking it up. With no 
opposition worth mentioning the amendment to the Constitution in favor of 
woman suff"rage was passed along to the people, with the idea that it was 
time to give the voters a chance to pass upon the question directly. There 
was no test of the sentiment of the Legislature on the merits of the question. 
Several important matters were referred to recess commissions or sent to 
the next Legislature, the time for action not being considered ripe. 
"What's in a name?" This was the first House on record with "Sin-nott" 
in it. The committee on agriculture contained as members a "Lamb" and a 
"Wolfe", with only a "Read" between them.
