Cultivate Intimate Relations With The Legislative
Branch
Washington, April 7. President
'Wilson wilt go 1b person to tbo house
of representatives tomorrow and read
Ms first message to congress setting
lorth the purpose for -which he has
tailed the special session. It will be
ihe first time since the days of John

Will have read his message to con
grass. Representative Underwood will in
troduce a concurrent resolution call
ing a session of both -the houses In
the lower chamber, and the president
will therefore deliver his message be
fore the senate as well as the house.
It was explained that President Wit
son has decided to change the prac
tice of more than a century because
lie believed that it was the best meth
od for tho president to cultivate inti
mate relations with the legislative
branch of the government.
This announcement set congress to
gasping as nothing has since the Mr.
Wilson was Inaugurated. No presi

has persouully delivered any other
than his unnual message to congress.
In this respect President Wilson's ac
tion apparently will set a precedent, is
the message which he will send to
congress Tuesday will be of a special
character, dealing with tho tariff.
President Wilson agrees with
GeoTge Washington and John Adams
that the president- clearly lias the con
stitutional right to deliver his mes
sages personally to congress It he
chooses to do so. The constitution
lays no restriction or limitation upon
the manner in which information and
recommendations shall be delivered.,
