As heretofore stated Mr. Hayes, ol
California, on May 27 introduced a bill
in the House of Representatives lo ex
tend the limits of the District of Colom?
bia so as to take in ail of Alexandria
county, but not Alexandria city or that
part ot Falls Chutch which lies within
the county. The bill was published in
lull in the Gazette of Jone 1. Com?
menting upon ibis the Gazette of June
1st suggested tbat Mr. Hayes should
read the report made to the Senate- on
this subject by tbe late Senator Hear.
Thia report reads as follows and baa
never before been published in full:
Constitutionality of the retrocession of a
certain portion of the District of Col
lurabia ceded to the United States by
April ll, 1901.? Ordered to be printed.
Ali: Hum:, Irom the committee on tbe
judiciary, submitted the following
ADI i i:-i- RXPOBT.
The committee on tbe judiciary, to
whom was referred tbe pint resolution
(S. K. 60) directing the attorney-general
to bring suit to determine the constitu?
tionality of the retrocession of that por?
tion of the original District of Columbia
which was ceded to the United States
by the state of Virginia, submit the fol?
lowing report:
The territory on the other side of tbe
Potomac river, including the city ot
Alexandria, which was originally a part
ol the 10 miles square, was ceded by
Virginia for the seat of government. It
was retroceded to Virginia by act of
Congress in LS46, accepted by Virginia,
and thereafter Congress exercised no ju?
risdiction over it, except so far as it con?
trols the Arlington national cemetery,
the experimental farm of tbe I "apart?
ment of Agriculture, the military school
lor cavalry, and Ihe signal corps, with
the land aod buildings occupied by them.
It seems to tbe committee that lt ia
not expedient tbat this act of retroces?
sion should be set aside by Congress,
even if Congress have tbe power so to
do, without the consent of Virginia.
Virginia accepted the transaction, it
being understood that it was at the de?
sire aud for the benefit of the rational
government. She has established in
Alexandria the important and intimate
relations wbich every state forms for ila
own citizens dwelling on her own soil and
the people, on the other hand, we pre?
sume, feel the loyal and deep attach?
ment which auth a relation aaa tea, Bkch
a tia' ought not to be wantonly broken,
and ought not to be broken at all with?
out tbe consent of the parties, except in
case of some paramount and overwhel?
ming public interest.
As to thee suggestion tbat the retro?
cession was unconstitutional, it seems to
us tbe answer is that from tbe nature of
the case it is a political and uot a ju?
dicial question, au! that it has been Hot
tied by the political authorities alone
competent to decide it. lt is like the
question, What is tho true state govern?
ment, the true and lawful government of
a ata'.e lk? tbe question, What ia the
true frontier'.' where any dispute exists
as to whether territory belongs to us or
lo a neighboring foreign country, and
many like questions.
These are partly eiueationa of law and
partly questions eil tact. The questions
of law may be settled by the highest
court to whom, in the ooarao of ju.iic.nl
prnceeelings, they may be taken, ii a less
and until tf.it conn e-Uoose to reverse its
previous opiuiona. Hut tbe tact must be
?determined in each caae, when it irises,
by the jury or other tribunal authorized
to find the fact. It would be Utterly in?
tolerable lhat territory ahtiuld be held in
one case to be a part of Virginia, and in
another raaa lo tie a part ol tbe district
ot t' ilumtiia, asst-onliiig hu might be held
iu the individual csse.
Si it seems to us the case ernst be
deemee! settled by tbv ecqoieaeeaea in
tbe act by Virginia and ot tbe United
States, .os maniipstod by tbe conduct of
tbe departments of government for mi.re
than bait a century. Tbe consequences
of holding that tbis retrocession bas
been void from the beginning would be
very serious.
ll it be desirable that Alexandria be?
come a part ol the' Matriel of Columbia
again, the only way tu ncc mplish lt will
be to open negotiations with Virginia
and get fer eoaooat. (Stl? Luthir v.
Borden, 7 How., 1.)

Tbe regular quarterly meeting of the
Board of Managers of tbe Alexandria

the bnard of managers that all interested
in books will spend as much time as pus.
eible in these rooms in free di?.
with th, ir literary friends. Ma. Alice

tu entertain as many as wish lo OOrai
