State Legislature Meets Wednesd Promises To Be A Busy Session—Legis Of Importance Is Already Being Shaped By Leaders. Baltimore, Dec. 29, 1921. Next Wednesday, the General As sembly will convene at Annapolis and for the following three months will hold the centre of the stage in Mary land. It ought to he. and probably will be, a business session. There is nothing that can legitimately come before it of a partisan character, un less partisanship may be dragged into it for effect. There ought to he nothing of a factional character, but doubtless there will be, for the mem bers are human, they have their likes and dislikes, their jealousies, their ambitions, their desires for promi nence and preferment, and all these will doubtless be evident early in the session, and will cause the as sembled Maryland statesmen to swerve from the strict lines of bus iness, to which, in theory they ought : to devote themselves for the ninety days in which they are expected to serve the people and the public wel fare, with the “help of the 1.0 rd,” as their oath provides. There will really be no excuse for any manifestations of partisanship or factionalism at the State House this winter. The legislation needed, as a result of the changed conditions arising from the war, are purely bus iness in their character, and should lie considered in that light. The Democrats have such u preponder ance in the membership of both i Houses, have the Governor and all ! the other inqiortant officials, that they ought to have no trouble what | ever in enacting their program. And the Republicans are in such a hope less minority, that the policy for them to follow, if they are wise, will lie to assent to the Governor’s pro- | ! gram, and back it up without op position. Whatever trouble may arise will no doubt be factional in its character, I for, while in harmony at the present j time, many of the old time sores and 1 hatreds still exist, and no doubt there will he spasmodic outbreaks from time to time. These factional sores are not confined to the city. It must be remembered that for many years there have been strong factional alignments in what is known as the “Htate crowd,” and that these faction al feelings in the state democracy, have been quite as strong as those which have almost disrupted the city democracy for more than generations.
