ors and representatives assembled in
ioint session, President Wilson, in ac
cordance with the custom he began at
he opening of his term, read his ad ad-lress
lress ad-lress from the clerk's desk.
The president not only renewed his
ecommendation for legislation to pre
sent a nation wide railway strike or
lockout before there has been oppor opportunity
tunity opportunity for investigation, but defended
t against the attack of organized la
jor as nothing arbitrary or unjust and
pe "justifiable safeguarding by socie
ty of the necessary processes of its
from recommendations for
the passage of the Porto Rico govern
ment bill, the corrupt practices bill
:nd the Webb bill to legalize American
collective selling agencies abroad, the
president's address was devoted whol
ly to the railroad situation. The only
feature which had not been forecast
was the elimination, of the proposal
that congress give explicit approval
to consideration by the Interstate
Commerce Commission of an increase
in freight rates to meet additional ex
penditures by the railroads caused by
the Adamson law.
Today, the president took the po position
sition position that "the power of hte Inter Interstate
state Interstate Commerce Commission to grant
an increase of rates an the ground re referred
ferred referred to is indisputably clear and a
recommendation by the congress with
regard to such a matter might seem
to draw in question the scope of the
commission's authority or its inclina inclination
tion inclination to do justice when there is no
reason to doubt eithert"
The other recommendations on the
railroad situation made in a sepcial
message during the last session, which
were not put into law, were renewed
today. Mr. Wilson said:
Gentlemen of the Congress:
, In fulfilling at this time the duty
jdid upon me by the constitution of
mmunjcating to you from time to

Union and recommending to your con consideration

as may be judged necessary and ex expedient

which I hope has been acceptable to
you, of leaving to the reports of the
several heads of the executive depart-
Iments the elaboration of the detailed
needs of the public service and confine
myself to those matters of more gen general
eral general public policy with which it seems
necessary and feasible to deal at the
J present session of the congress.
I realize the limitations of time un under

this session and shall make my sug suggestions

3 were some things left undone at the
last Eession- which there will now be
time to complete and which it seems
necessary in the interest of the pub public
lic public to do at once.
In the first place, it seems to me
imperatively necessary that the earli earliest
est earliest possible consideration and action
should be accorded the remaining
measures of the programme of settle settlement

it authorized the appointment of a

the measures most (immediately need needed;

to grant an increase of rates on the

Elsewhere appears the president's
message, it is short and devoted en

the railroad situation. The president's
policy of leaving to the heads of the
departments subjects that formei
presidents tried to cover in messages
of from eight to ten columns is sen
sible. Mr. Wilson does not refer to
either Europe or Mexico, and in view
of the unsettled condition of both he
has in this also shown windom.

Loss and Gain
Who wins his love shall lose her, who
loses her shall gain
For still the spirit woes her, a soul
without a stain,
And memory still pursues her, with
longings not in vain.
He loses her who gains her, who
watches day by day
The dust of time that stains her, the
griefs that leave her gray.
The flesh that still enchains her,
whose grace has passed away.
He wins his love who gains not the
gilts some seem to earn.
The joy that custom stains not shall
still with him remain.
The loveliness that wanes not, the love
that cannot wane.
For him she grows not older the land
of dreams amone.
Though all the world wax colder, tho'
all the sones be sune:
In dreams he shall behold her still
fair and kind and young.

Three thousand baths, accommodating
a quarter million of people, catered to
the desire for cleanliness.
Paper money passed freely, the
births of children were recorded by
the state, dead bodies were cremated,
and the wealthy visitor, on arriving
at his hotel, was compelled to register
his name before being shown to his

into second place by the advent of an

can go from Hangchow to Shanghai in

drive in a carriage between the two
cities under any circumstances.

women occasionally wear new world

which seeks to extend greater free freedom

in promoting the foreign commerce of
the country than is now thought by
some to be legal under the terms of

would greatly relieve the public mind

The argument for the proposed

of the country and I am sure that
there is no legislation now pending
before the congress whose passage the
country awaits with more thoughtful

way of being done.
There are other matters already ad

not necessary that I should speak.
Some practicable basis of agreement
concerning them will no doubt be
