They Are The Secretary Of State, Who Is Supposed To Have The Direction Of Foreign Affairs; The Secretary Of The Treasury, Who Answers To Our Chancellor Of The Exchequer; The Secretaries Of The Army And Of The Navy; The Minister Of The Interior; The Attorney-General; And The Postmaster-General.

If these officers were allowed to hold seats in one House or the other - or rather if the President

Were enjoined to place in these offices men who were known as members of Congress, not only would the position of the President's ministers be enhanced and their weight increased, but the position also of Congress would be enhanced and the weight of Congress would be increased. I may, perhaps, best exemplify this by suggesting what would be the effect on our Parliament by withdrawing from it the men who at the present moment - or at any moment - form the Queen's cabinet. I will not say that by adding to Congress the men who usually form the President's cabinet, a weight would be given equal to that which the withdrawal of the British cabinet would take from the British Parliament. I cannot pay that compliment to the President's choice of servants. But the relationship between Congress and the President's ministers would gradually come to resemble that which exists between Parliament and the Queen's ministers. The Secretaries of State and of the Treasury would after awhile obtain that honor of leading the Houses which is exercised by our high political officers, and the dignity added to the positions would make the places worthy of the acceptance of great men.
