    I think we can agree on that point, then. Is there any other issue with the provisional draft?

    "Thank you for these gifts. They mean a great deal." Tkikami begins speaking through Pablo from this point onwards, explaining that his grasp of English does not extent to political subtleties. "I think this is something we can compromise on, but on a condition -- that such purchases not be limited. We can contract with your private manufacturers freely, or if your government takes over arms manufacturing itself, your government will meet our reasonable requests for sales."
  3. Governor, I ask unanimous consent. Thank you.
  4. Governor, It is time to extent the suffrage to all of the peoples of this state. I ask unanimous consent. Thank you.
  5. Representatives, I offer a more simple national bank proposal this year in the hopes of convincing this house to give approval for a monetary policy that will permit the growth of our republic's economy. I know that there are concerns about the constitutionality of this proposal, but the chartering of a national bank is no more extensive a use of the Congress' powers than is the construction of roads or canals. This chamber came together to endorse such things last session; I ask you to come together now to approve of a national bank. It is essential to our prosperity that we have a singular controller of monetary policy, and a lending institution that can be relied upon by all in our republic. I urge the members of this assembly to support this bill.
  6. Representatives, we experienced some trouble last session with considering a budget so late in the session, so this session I figured we should begin by considering appropriations. I offer here a budget that achieves a half million dollar surplus, appropriately funds our armed forces, substantially invests in internal improvements, and reduces the tax burden imposed upon landowners. I know that there are many here who would prefer to reduce tariffs rather than property taxes, but I would note that we will still be relying upon property taxes for a substantial portion of our federal revenue under this plan. Most national governments rely exclusively upon tariffs for income; our turn to property taxes as well represents a major compromise with the merchant interests. I urge all members of this assembly to support this measure.
  7. The House shall come to order to debate this act.

  9. Mr. Chief Justice, the legislative power necessarily extends to significant regulation of the executive power, and to some regulation of the judicial power. But organizing the courts, and the manner in which justice is administered, is different from delegating the fundamental judicial power. It is the job of the courts, and the courts alone, to decide cases and controversies.
  10. Mr. Chief Justice, ultimately, I would contend the question to be irrelevant here. The Congress has not delegated its power, that is, the legislative power. Rather, the Congress has delegated the judiciary's power, the judicial power. Even if delegation is permissible generally, certainly, it can only be permissible for a branch of government to delegate its own powers, not the powers of another branch.
  11. In the House of Representatives of the United States of America, Mr. Terrus, for himself, offers: a bill, to be known as the Interior Improvements Administration Act of 1791, to provide for the administration of interior improvements, and for other purposes. Be it enacted by the House of Representatives and Senate of the United States of America, that: Section 1. Department of Works. Chapter 6 of the Executive Code is amended to read as follows: Section 2. Office of Lotteries. The Treasury Code is amended by adding the following new chapter: Section 3. Criminal Penalty for Unauthorized Lottery Sales, Participation. The Judicial Code is amended by adding the following new section: Section 330. Unlawful Lottering. Section 4. Conforming Amendments. (a) Section 310 of the War Code is struck. ((PES: Provision provided for the Department of the Navy to maintain lighthouses, beacons, buoys, etcetera.)) (b) Section 107(2) of the Treasury Code is amended as follows: "(2) An Internal Improvement Fund Public Works Fund, into which shall be deposited all revenues from national lotteries and from activities authorized by Sections 604 and 605 of the Executive Code other revenue-raising actions authorized for internal improvements, and from which the Treasurer may draw moneys to fund internal improvement projects." (c) Section 107 of the Treasury Code is amended by inserting the following new paragraph: "(6) A Lottery Fund.". ((PES: Creates a Department of Public Works, headed by a Chief Engineer, to oversee internal improvement projects. Authorizes the Chief Engineer to construct public works projects to promote interstate commerce, provided that such projects can be maintained based solely on tolls. Incorporates all provisions of the Internal Improvements Act. More carefully regulates national lotteries.))
  12. In the House of Representatives of the United States of the United States of America, Mr. Terrus, for himself, offers: an act, to be known as the Veterans Act of 1791, to provide veterans pensions to the widows and orphaned children of veterans, and for other purposes. Be it enacted by the House of Representatives and Senate of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that the War Code be amended as follows (strikings struck; additions in italics): Section 508. Disabled Veteran Pensions. Qualifying Service Defined. For the purposes of this chapter, qualifying service means service as one or more of the following: A person shall be eligible for a pension of one half his final monthly pay if that person suffered a disabling injury during, and substantially connected to, service as one or more of the following: (1) An officer, soldier, sailor, or marine of the United States Army, United States Navy, the Continental Army, or the Continental Navy. (2) An officer or soldier of a state militia, provided that such injury occurred either while such state militia was in federal service or during the War for Independence. (3) An officer, sailor, or marine aboard a ship granted a letter of marque and reprisal by the Continental Congress, provided that such injury occurred during the War for Independence. (4) An officer, sailor, or marine aboard a ship granted a letter of marque and reprisal by the United States Congress, provided that such injury occurred during combat with a foreign enemy vessel. Section 509. Pension Amount. A pension granted under this chapter shall be for $8 per month for a soldier, sailor, marine, or militiaman, and $20 per month for an officer. Section 510. Disabled Veteran Pension. A man is eligible for a pension if that man suffered a disabling injury during, and substantially connected to, qualifying service. Section 511. Surviving Spouse Pension. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b), a woman is eligible for a pension if that woman's husband died during qualifying service, provided that such death was substantially connected to such service. (b) A woman eligible for a pension under subsection (a) shall cease to be eligible for such pension upon remarrying. Section 512. Orphaned Child Pension. The caretaker of a child shall be eligible for a pension if that child was orphaned because his father died during qualifying service, provided that a caretaker shall not receive multiple pensions for caring for the children of the same man.

    Tkikami offers his hand in greeting to Adams, and initially speaks himself. As he speaks, Pablo presents the hatchet and document. Sir, it is an honor to meet you. Your brother speaks well of you. I hope that we can make a victory here greater than any military victory. I have brought with me, and present to you as a gift, the hatchet that I carried during the recent campaign. I hope to not need it again. I have also brought with me, and give to you now, the parole agreement signed by your garrison at Fort Harmar. I consider it to be void now, and give it to you to show that my people wish to put those incidences behind us.
