PREFACE 



"Coming events cast their shadows before," — and the coming of the 
Constitutional Convention cast a "shadow" over many measures that would 
otherwise have taken the time of the Legislature of 1917. "Coming ev- 
ents cast their shadows before," — and the coming of the Country into 
the greatest war of history also had its effect upon the Legislature of 1917. 
It had new and grave issues to meet and it met them wisely and well. It 
made generous provision for the men in uniform, who were to be called to 
fight for American principles, and also generous provision for the welfare 
of those dependent upon them. Doubtless a longer experience with the 
conduct of the war would have broadened and deepened the currents of 
legislation ; but any sins of omission will be corrected by legislators who 
will follow those of 1917. Especially notable was the reception on Satur- 
day, May 12, of Marshal JofTre and his fellow-representatives of the French 
Republic, a fuller account of which is given on page 19. Such an event is 
without parallel in the history of any Legislature. The zeal and efficiency 
of the members was proven by making the session really the shortest for 
many years, while it was prolonged several days by "war" legislation. The 
great preponderance of Republicans tended to lessen party considerations; 
and the legislation, as a whole, was progressive, sound and for the public 
interest. The members were in close touch with the desires of their con- 
stituents and with those of vhe Adniinistration, uo there was a co-ordination 
of effort for the public good.

HONORS TO THE FRENCH MISSION 

Never in the history of the state was there such a scene presented as 
was witnessed on Saturday, May 12. The Senate and House met in joint 
convention, agreeably to the provisions of an order previously adopted, for 
the purpose of receiving and doing honor to the Marshal of France, Joffre. 
and other members of the French Mission to the United States. President 
Wells was in the chair. A committee, consisting of Senators Hobbs of 
Worcester, Gifford of the Cape and Timilty of Suffolk; and Representatives 
Bliss of Maiden, Achin of Lowell, Pepin of Salem, Brunell of Webster, 
Larocque of Fall River, Bessette of New Bedford and McNulty and Craig 
of Boston were appointed to wait upon Governor McCall, Marshal Joffre 
and the other members of the French Mission and invite them to honor the 
Convention with their presence. The Governor and Marshal Joffre, and 
other menibers of the Mission, the justices of the Supreme Court and other 
civil and military officers entered, the Convention rising and greeting them 
with enthusiastic applause. Gov. McCall, Marshal Joffre and M Emile 
Hovelaque, inspector-general of education in France, were then presented 
to the Convention and addressed its members, the speech of Marshal Joffre 
being translated for the Convention, after he had finished, by Judge Hugo 
A. Dubuque of Fall River. M. Hovelaque making his address in English. 
The Convention was then dissolved and the guests proceeded to the Hall of 
Flags, where they gave a reception to the members of the Convention. In 
the evening there was given, at the Copley-Plaza hotel, in Boston, a "dinner 
in Honor of the Commission of the Republic of France to the United States 
by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts." Besides the members of the 
Legislature and Executive Council, there were present Governor McCall 
and the other state officers and mayors of cities, members of Congress and 
many other distinguished guests. Those present of the Mission, were "M.

Call, Marshal Joffre, M. Hovelaque and others. M. Rene Viviani, the head 
of the Mission, was not present at any of the receptions in Boston having 
been obliged to visit Montreal in his official capacity on the same date.

DANIEL WEBSTER 

As one of the foremost "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 interestinR picture of 
him beneath his favorite tree at his New Hampshire Home.
