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."
