capital of the government of the United
States, by autnority ot an act of Con

lbUO, tne national congress met nere for
the hrst time and assumed exclusive
coutrQi of tne feaeral district and city.
Tnis interesting event assumes all tne
more eignincauce wnen we recall tne Cir

'ine people of tne couutry are justly
proua ot the distinctive Deputy ana gov

pemaps, trie esiauiisnment ot a liauu
touie permanent memorial to marit so
historical an occasion, and to give it
more man local recognition has been
met with favor on the part of tne pudiic.
1 recommend to Congress tne granting
of an appropriation tor tnis purpose anu
the appointment of a committee from Its
respective bodies. It might also be ad
visaoie to authorize the President to ap
point a committee from the country at
large which acting with the Congres
sional and the District of Columbia com
mittees, can complete the plans for an
appropriate national celebration.
'the alien contract law is shown uy
experience to need some amendment; a
measure providing better protection for
seamen Is proposed; the rightful appli
cation of the eight-hour law for the ben
efit of labor and of the principle of ar
bitration are suggested for consideration,
and I commend these subjects to the
careful attention of the Congress.
The several department reports will
bo laid before you. They give in great
detail the conduct of the affairs of tue
government during the past year and,
discuss many questions upon which the
Congress may be called upon to act.

ization; a strong effort will be made to
bring this about, at any rate. It is well
known that most trade unionists are
socialists or have a strong leaning that
way, and efforts will be made to have
them endorse one of the two Socialist
Resolutions favoring and adverse to
expansion will be "broughl" before the
convention. Other resolutions against
the employment of women, remuneration
for machinists and others who worked
overtime in navy yards and arsenals,
the reference to the Supreme court, for
decision on constitutionality, and other
matters requiring Congressional action
will be brought up.
