PREFACE 



Again is verified the statement that every Legislature has its own 
peculiar feature. That of 1916 was an extra session, Sept. 12, 13, 14, called 
to provide some method of taking the votes of the Massachusetts soldiers 
on the Mexican border, of securing a constitutional adjustment of the rep- 
resentative districts in Suffolk county, and of providing suitable compen- 
sation to families of soldiers in United States service as members of the 
National Guard. A bill to prevent spread of infantile paralysis was passed 
also. Extra pay of $50 each was deemed just and reasonable, with mileage 
of 20 cents one way. This was the first extra session, called for special 
action, since that of 1872, called to provide for exigencies resulting from 
the great Boston fire in November, which lasted two weeks, and at which 
other matters were also considered. Aside from this feature, was the fact 
that more business was disposed of in less time than ever before. One 
threatened investigation was warded off; and another resulted in an ex- 
pulsion. There was less of railroad and street railway legislation than 
usual, and a reduction of the state tax of over a million dollars was the 
cause of great rejoiciu'g and self praise, although it was brought about 
chiefly by the yielding up of larger sums than usual from the estates 
of wealthy citizens who died in the previous year, yielding unexpected 
amounts of inheritance taxes. The whole state government was Republican 
and "team work" brought good results. The "high cost of living" has 
compelled ine omission of certain data usually included in this "Souvenir."
