0, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the
clouds of the fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still
0! say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
On that shore dimly seen through the mists of the
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence re
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream
'Tis the star-spangled banner 0, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war- and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave
And the sjtar-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
0! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desola
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued
Praise the power that hath made and preserved us
a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just.
And this be our motto—"In God is our trust:"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

By Congressman P. D. Norton,
Washington, D. C., July 14,1917.
The First Session of the Sixty-fifth
Congress has already continued much
longer than any of the members of
Congress thought it would when the
Congress was called in Extraordinary
Session by the president on April 2nd.
The oldest and most experienced mem
bers predicted that the session would
not continue later than June 15th.
Now, while there is much talk of ad
journment by the first of September,
the probabilities are that the present
session will not adjourn until about
the time provided, under the statute,
for the beginning of the regular ses
sion in December. It is well in these
momentous days that Congress should
continue in session, and, as Represen
tative Fitzgerald of New York, chair
man of the committee on Appropria
tions, remarked in the House yester
day, when the matter of adjournment
was debated, "I am still of the opinion
that the rtiost important thing that
members of Congress can do is to
stay in Washington and attend to the
public business." After all, loosely
criticised, condemned and maligned as
it so'often is, in the final analysis,
the Congress of the United States is
the safest and most dependable
friend of. the people of the Republic.
At the suggestion and request of a
number of newspaper men of the Dis
trict, I shall present in a weekly let
ter, during the remainder of this ses
sion of Congress, some of the more
important happenings in the Congress
and in Washington.
At the present time, the legislative
program for this session is badly tied
up, both in the House and the Senate,
with the Food Control Bill and with
the new Revenue Bill. The Food Con
trol Bill passed the House on June
twenty-third, with provisions author
izing the president to control the
supply and distribution of fuel and
food stuffs and to prevent hoarding
and injurious speculation. In the Sen
ate Committee to which the bill was
referred, an amendment was added,
giving authority to the president to
also control the supply, distribution
and price of petroleum, aluminum,
steel, iron, copper, cotton, wool, sisal,
lead, timber, lumber, and their vari
ous products. With this amendment
injected in the Bill, Senatorial calm
and courtesy have been badly blown
up. The petroleum, iron, steel, cotton
and lumber interests have arrayed
their influences against the bill, and
no one today knows definitely what
the outcome may be. Discussions in
cident to Food Control legislation and
the uncertainty as to what the law
will finally be and how it may be ad
ministered, have already greatly de
pressed the markets for cereals and
other farm products. The upshot of
the^ present condition of Food Control
legislation in the House and Senate
seems now to be, that the president
will be authorized to fix and guar
antee a reasonable price for the wheat
crop of the present year. A condition
under which the farmers of the
country may receive but $1.25 to
$1.50 per bushel for their wheat at
threshing time, and under which this
same wheat may be sold by the food
speculators next spring or next sum
mer for $2.50 and $3.00 a bushel, is
intolerable, and the most drastic and
arbitrary legislation is justifiable to
prevent it. There is now under con
sideration in the Senate a compromise
on the Food Control Bill between the
different factions, providing for an
amendment directing the president to
fix a fair and just price for the wheat
and the corn crop of the country for
this year.
The new Revenue Bill has been re
ferred to the Committee on Finance
on account of the amendments in the
Senate to the Food Control Bill in
reference to alcoholic liquors. The
big fight in the House and Senate is
yet to come .on this bill. A majority
of the Senate members seem fearful
to levy a just proportion of the war's
expenses on large incomes and on the
huge profits that have been made by
many individuals and corporations di
rectly from the necessities of the
war. The general principle of the
bill, as recommended by the Senate
Finance Committee a few days ago,
will receive very vigorous and very de
termined opposition in the House. It
would seem it is only fair and just
that each one should contribute to the
burdens of this war in proportion to
what he is reasonably able to con
tribute. Certainly no citizen is justi
fied in any way in making large pe
cuniary profits out of the war. The
sooner many insatiably greedy indi
viduals and large corporate interests
are made to clearly understand this,
by legislation and otherwise, the more
easily it will be to conduct the busi
ness of the present war along lines
of certain success. Without adminis
trative interference, the majority of
the members of the House of Repre
sentatives will insist on an Excess
Profit Tax at this time of at least
sixty per cent.
