Whenever, in some reform spurt,
the people waken to their obligations
and privileges as citizens, there is
very d> fin te progress made.
in the current Fvery body's Maga
zine, there is an article by Frederick
('. Howe, which every citizen should
ponder. Among tilings, he says:
"The trouble with congress is that
it does not represent us, the peo
ple. It represents only a part of
Hie people. And the task before
us, the people, is to make con
gress represent us; all of us; not a
few of us; not a part of us; not even
the best of us; but all of us. And
tlie way to make congress represent
all of us if for each of us to see to
it that his congressman represents
That means you. It means me,
too. and the other fellow; and some
of us will do our part. But every
body I meet seems to have this
question on his conscience:
“What can I do?”
Here, then, is something for you
to do I ilia year. You can help to
make your next congressman repre
sent us. And tlie way to begin is
to ask in your own mind, and then
in your own mind to answer, this
Does my present congressman rep
lias lu distributed the burden of
taxation fairly? Has he provided
that certain qua si-public functions
shall l>e carried on in the interests
of all the people? Has he safe
guarded your interests as an agent

in our common business at Washing
In other words, lias he represent
ed you and me?
Tills, our question, is being asked
in one form or another all over
the country. It is being asked in
the shop, on the farm, in the count
ing room, and on the street. It is
being asked at. the primaries and in
the conventions. And it is being
asked at the polls, in some places.
Old agents have been replaced by
new ones in Massachusetts, and in
New York, because the answer was
Now you can find the answer to
some forms of this question in the
Congressional Record by scrutinizing
the roll call. The Record does not
tell the whole story. It does not
tell how measures are strangled in
committees, how they are amended
and altered; it does not tell the
story of the subterranean tricks em
ployed to control the House through
Cannon and the Rules, and the Sen
ate through Aldrich. But the Rec
ord will tell you what your agent did
on critical occasions such as the
Rules fight in the House, the Payne
Aldrich tariff bill, and the Wicker
sham railway measure. And you
have a right to know this, and to
act. upon it.
Your congressman tit Washington
ought to represent you. not only be
cause this is a government of the
people, but because you reward him
in honor and money. America is
almost the only civilized nation
whose government is supported by a
sort of poll tax on the people, Ex
