will be largely patterned after that of the United States Our legislative branch of the Government will consist of a Senate and a House of Deputies iho latter to be elected every four years There is a

managed by irrespective of church divisions And it will obey the sovereign Government of the REBD AT CHICAGO The Speaker Addresses to Tremen dous and Enthusiastic Meetings CUMCAOO Oct Rood reached
