The special Bcsslon of Congress which convened last spring and remained in session during most of the summer might have,been designated as the President's session. It vas called by the President, upon his own ' motion, to consider a single subject of legislation, Reciprocity. The,measure was passed and became a law, so far as this country octing alone could make it such, but with the refusal of Canada to concur, that fell to the gfbund. The campaign publicity law was amended and one or two minor bills passed. Three or four bills of great importance,—tariif bills,— got through both houses but were vetoed by the President. So that the net result of the long special session was practically nothing. To all intents and purposes, therefore, the Sixty-second Congress begins its first session today. The Prcs- Jdent will send in his annual message, of course,—although probably not until tomorrow,—but while It will express the opinion of the President on what Congress ought to do on the subjects It may treat, it will not by hint or implication attempt to restrict the action of Congress on other subjects. The whole field of national legislation will lie wide open, and that an enormous program will be undertaken goes without saying. It takes no prophet to tell tljat thousands of bills will be dumped into the legislative hopper; but the seventh son of a seventh son might well be troubled to guess what wpuld come out. Those who have been at all In touch with President Taft know that be regards the trust question as altogether the most Important now be fore the country and the chances aro that his first message will deal exclusively with that, leaving to subsequent special communications the discussion of other matters pertaining to "the state of the Union." I'ndoubt- edly a great deal ol' the time of tho Congress will be taken up wJih tht- varlous measures which will be introduced looking to the Amendment of the Sherman act, or to the passage of other measures dealing with the same subject. Next In order, if indeed not first in point of time consumed, will come the tariff bills, of which the special session gave the country a foretaste. It is expected that the Tariff Board will report upon one or two schedules within a few days, and that report will, of course, enter largely into \he discussions which will follow. It is hardly to be expected however, that the Democratic House will be willing to accept the recommendations of this board, for while it is a bi-|^artisan body, the majority of its members undoubtedly favor a tariff sufficiently high to measure the difference between the cost of production here and abroad. !>c prorcsed, wI2! center in the Senate, where the Insurgents hold the balance of power. Wheth !r they have consigned protection to imerlcan In- dnstrles to the scrap pile along with most of the other Republican principles they once professedj to believe, remain* to be aeen. The pltjr of the .whole situation is that everybody will be ijlaylng politics—everybody but the President. He doesn't know how, sjnd he will m, but for ho cvcry- not let anybody teach h doesn't want to know, body else will be playltig politics. There is undoubtedly wisqom and experience enough among five hundred men in the to frame an interstate commerce law that would give the busiiess of the countr}', big and little, a f rm foundation on which to build, a^d to frame tariff laws which would troublesome problem fojr come. And If these five h the nearly Itwo Houses settle that years to mdrrd men could set themselvp^ sc^foiisly and patriotically and In tcaodj those two tasks, v.lih n.i personal npRrandizrnirnt [.,idvantn;:<', they \vun '.<i lished. and I ho comiiry enormously tlip uiUnrr. .'can't do thnt.

The outlook, therefore, for roal, constructive siatcsmanlil e. legislation, is not of the brightest.

Brady: Th^ Journal- World Is called reactlonaty by some of Its friends because It doubts the .ibvlsability of calling a Special ses- f ion of the legislature to enact a presidential primary. Now Ijt happens that the editor of the Journal-World knows something of what was done at the last session. He knows that Senator Potter tried his best to get n presidential primary considered and could not do so. Is there any reason to believe there is a change in sentiment? If there is the law can be enacted but we ^ail to find any hugr sentiment. The writer siipported the presidential primary moriths before the present bunch ever thought of ii and he has little patienjo with the follows who are talking now purely fvir political effect. Again the story comes cut from the executive office at Topeki that the Oovrrnor Is being delugtd with let- trrs demanding an extra lession. And cgain, with all deference and humility, we suggest that the (.ovcrnor let us have a list of the writers of those letters and a few sample) of the letters themselves. In this golden era of {lolitical publicity the people have a right to know who is pjutting them up against an expense of and dollars. After pondering the two weeks' Editor Kelley ronto Republican, is of that Editor White's ^ editorial In the Emporia Gazette on the a mighty fine piece of Writing; but he has not yet been able and that Is not Democratic doctrine. ^j^^ whether it was fntended for Having a majority of sixty in the | ^ j^^^ a boost House, that body will pass i»ibatever measure the Democratic caucus may agree upon.

Some wonder was felt over thf' use of Brass Bands in the Good RoadK convention at Osage City, when the route of the National rock road was being considered. Topeka and I.,aw- rence had a delegation advocating the north route, while Ottawa and Olathe wanted a south route. Each crowd had a band which played in the hall when an opposition speaker tried to talk. The convention became a bedlam and resulted in the endorsement of a branch along other routes. —0— Sedgwick county school marms have served notice on school boards that unless teachers are allowed to .ittend parties and not "become old maids" there will be riots and strikes.

Washington Post: Mi'u in business, big *.Tnd lldle, are worried over the prospect as the day approaches for the convening of Congress. They have heard so much about propose^! legislation on the tariff, the trusts, and other matters affecting them tHat they arc holding off to see what Will happen and fearing^ the worst ; ~ But there are some factors In thn situation that ought to bo reassuring to business men—to the men who ask only that tbcy may go nheiid with their dally work, honestly tryfng to make a living. i' Several years ago It was'held b.v many intelligent men that the best thing that could happen to thi^'coun­ try would be a divided Congress—a Democratic House and a Republican Senate. They thought such a ^pondi- tlon would pr ^vjnt the cna<^tnicnt of revolutionary loflslatlon, and put » stop to the modern habit oficlubblng business over the head for' political advantage. Congrpss divldprt and-in spit<of all lh.-« noise and threatening, no radical legislation was enacted. At tempts to cut the tariff to pieces wpr<' thwarted, in spite of the Democratic- Insurgent coalition. The aanip roiAllllon exists now witl. the additional slgniflrant fac: tha;/ the parties are keenly alive to th'- proximity of a"i >rP9ldpntlnl • election The rlviilry in politics is the strongest iwsKible Influence against .radioa' legislation. The ppmocratlc Hous<' will not permit Prpsldent Tnft to gain crpdil if It can prevent it., The Re- imhllcan Senate will not ihelp thi- Mouse push through legislation that will help the. Democrats to win thr Presidency. E\cn the Insurgents who oppose President Taft are stil' Republicans who have nothing to gain by placing their party at a disadvantage. "This will be a do-nothing session," remarked Representative Mann the other day. Evidently he referred tc legislation, and not to politiiis. In political maneuvering therei will b<' something doing, but the very Intensity of the partisan scrap will neutralize attempts to enact path -breaking legislation.
