Much is being.said for mid against

gress after, the inauguration of presi

next, to begin the work of democrat
ie reformation and relief as indicated
in the national platform and the can

The New York World, which did
more to elect and is considered near--
er to the president-elbct than any
other paper in the country, is strong
ly in favor of an extra session, in
fact considers one absolutely necessa

“Till regular session does not nicel
for more than a ycar*-u|fil Decem
ber, 1893. A month or more is al
ways consumed in tlm organization,
the appointment of committees and
the holiday recess.
“Without an extra session it is al
most a mathematical certainly that
the now lari IT will not be completed
before-tlm summer of 1894, if then.
That is the very eve of the next con
“Is it not almost a travesty upon
the popular government tlmt relief
demanded and reforms required hy
tiie polls, hy un electoral and popu

“Considering the enormous inter

or May, in order to finish it before
The World thinks that the verdict
