Dear friends, we're glad to meet you,
Within these walls to-night:
With songs of joy we greet you
Our hearts are happy and- light.

From Zion's hill, and Zion's God
Who heaven and earth has made.
Shelter'd beneath th' Almighty's wings.
Thou shall securely rest;
Where neither sun nor moon shall thee
By day or night molest.
At home, abroad, in peace, in war,
Thy God shall thee defend;
Conduct thee through life's pilgrimage.-
Safe to thy journey's end.
Speaker of the House.
The N. Y. Evening Post says: "The
Speaker of the House of Representatives
is the most powerful man in the Govern
ment next to the President himscll. and
gives the following reasons for the re
"While it is the President's constitu
tional duty to execute the laws, and he
is entrusted with certain limited powers
to that end, the Speaker exercises, or at
least can exercise, upon the making ot
the laws not only more influence than
the President but sometimes even more
than the majority of the House over
Which he presides. The principal legis
lative woi kof she House ot Representa
tive!B; is done in the committees. There
bills are discussed, amended and prepar
ed in detail. The House itself is more a
voting than a deliberating body. Debate
is limited and generally exercises scarce
ly any influence upon the votes ol mem
bers, except when so directed as to make
an impression upon public opinion cal
culated to frighten time-serving politi
cians in Congress. To change a legisla
tive measure in the House against the
wish of the committee having it in charge
is very diflieult unless the attempt be
aided by the Speaker. It is, in the tirst
place, the privilege of the Speaker to ap
point the committees which prepare leg
islation. Then it is the Speaker who
'recognizes' members who claim the
floor. It is within his power to give the
preference to this one or that one as lie
may prefer the proposition to be brought
forward by this one or that one. lie
construes in the first instance and en
forces the complicated rules of the House
which are a profound mystery to most
members, and lie may construe and en
force them or omit to enforce them in
favor of or against motions or amend
ments as he may favor or oppose them,
and the ruling of the Speaker is but rare
ly reversed bv a vote of the House. The
action or pretended action of the House
of Representatives is not seldom so rapid
and confused that scarcely anybody but
the presiding olllcer knows what is go
ing on, and he may sometimes put mo
tions to a vote, and declare tliem car
ried or defeated without attracting the
attention of anybody except those im
mediately interested. It is therefore as
sumed by many that when the Speaker is
in favor of a measure his support is al
most as good as a majority, and that
when the Speaker earnestly opposes a
bill its friends will have to be very keen
and active to save its chances. It is !
needless to point out how dangerously
such a power may be abused when en- j
trusted to an unscrupulous man."
