ADDRESS BY RETIRING PRESIDENT PRO TEM.

Mr. White called Mr. Fraser to the chair, and addressed the Senate, as follows:

In severing my official relations with this body, I cannot resist the temptation to briefly indicate the thanks which I feel are due to many of you for the uniform kindness and forbearance of which I have been the fortunate beneficiary. During the twentyseventh session of the Legislature l occasionally presided over the Senate's deliberations, and throughout the twenty-eighth session I was constantly in the chair. Called on to make frequent rulings upon controverted matters, it was and ever will be a source of deep gratitication ti me to know that my judgment stood, without exception, as the judgment of the Senate, and that not one of my colleagues, however variant our political views, ever charged that a decision was made during my incumbency that was not the result of candid deliberation. To receive the encomiums of persons of character is a laudable aspiration; the bestowal of such an honor is gratifying to that pride which is but the synonym of self-respect. In parting from you permit me to hope that your efforts may be as fruitful as sanguine anticipation can picture, and that we non-officeholders, whose function it shall be to comment upon your work, may find but little to criticise and nothing to condemn.

With the majority of the people of this great Commonwealth, who have in an emphatic manner recorded their determination that you shall be their trusted agents, I join in wishing you not only an honorable but also an appreciative career.
