I do not know what w.n In tlie mind of

this sort the motive of the diners was to

a reminder of what has been Hut after
further consideration I kiw In the name of
yourfrlub the possibility that yoil were not
merely cold, hellish seekers after pleasures
nf your own, and that perliap you were
organled to turnish consolation to those
who mourn, oblivion to those who would
forue't, an opportunity for a swim song
to those about to disappear.
This thousht. prompted by the i nrnimr,
s one of your committee, of the gentleman
who knos everything In Ibe world that bus
happened and is goinu to happen, and eape-
ally I ha' which is going to happen, by
leason of his control of tho press, much
diminished my confidence in tho victory
that was to come on election day. I con
cluded that it was just as well to cast an
anchor to the windward and accept as much
real condolence as I could gather in such a
honpltable presence as this, (and therefore
my friends, I accepted your invitation and

mother suggestion I would make is that
legislative steps lie taken, for there is noth
ing In the t'emstitut ion to forbid it, bringing
mop- closely together Ihe oration of the
executive and legislative blanches. Ihe
studied effort In which to maintain these
bt.uiches rigidly sepaiate is. 1 think, a
I would not add any more actual power
to the executive in legislative niatteis.nor
would give the legislative any more actual
power Ice executive powers. The veto on
the chid hand and the continuation of ap
pointments and the tatlflcation nf treaties
on the oilier I would not change. Hut It
does seem to me that they need not heat
aim's length, as they are now under our
Srats In Until llunaes.
It has been proposed'! cvice In our history,
nfter the fullest c ciiisideratlou by somo of
the wisest statesmen we have ever had, to
pass a law giving lo each department head
a seat In the Senate and in the House, and a
right to enter into the discussion of the pro
posed legislation in cither of the national
loglslallve bodies. This would keep Con
gress much belter informed as to the actual
conditions in the executive departmenti.
It would keep the department heals on (he
cpii vive with reference to their knowledge
of their own departments, mid ttaeir ehllity
to answer appropriate questions fn respect
It would necessitate the apitointnien'
to th? Cabinet of men nsd to debate and
to defend their, positions and It would
e.eer an opportunity for the public to jiidgj
of Ihe Kxecutlve and his government much
more justly and much more quickie thin
under our present system.
Th; Ignor.ineo tint Congress at times
has of what is actually going on In tho
executive departments, and the fact that
hours of debi'e and pages of the iVigrrs
.mil Kccord might bs avoided by the an
swer to a single question by a comtssjent
Cabinet officer on tho floor of either house,
Is frequently brought sharply to th atten
tion of competent, observers. I think too
il might inrhajH "promote the amenities
between the two branches If this system
were Introduced, .
The rules of the two houses, as I am
advised, forbid tho use of abusive language
by one member against another and by the
member of one house against the other
house or ita members. A somewhat close
examination of tho rules, however, of
both houses does not ,Hhtiw that there Is
any limitation upon the parliamentary
character of the language which may bn
dliectud against tho President. As to him
the members pursue their own sweet will,
and that sometimes leads them Into lan
guage) and epithelioid description of the
Chief Kxecotlvo tint could hardly be called
complimentary. If members of the Cabi

would suggest In the possibility of
reply moderation in discussing the admin

'I he stroiytest rensou for advocating this
change, however, is that the Influence, that

That part of the President's time which
is talien up with the smaller patronage of

the isMtmttstera and th esillectors, is in
my jedsment wasted, and ought to Is re
