CHAPTER X
COMPARATIVE

Tim phrase "mother of parliaments," as applied to the parliament at Westminster, has become so terribly hackneyed that one is almost ashamed to repeat it. But it expresses an important historical truth. It is a fact that the constitution and procedure of the legislature in every other country, with the possible exception of Hungary, are copied, directly or indirectly from, or, at least, based on ideas suggested by, the English model.
The first of these copyists were, as was proper and natural, men who were our own kith and kin, the framers of the constitution of the United States. And it is specially instructive to compare the ways of the British parliament with the ways of the American congress, because the comparison shows how a people starting with the same habits, traditions and modes of thought as our own, may, by making a cardinal point of a different. constitutional principle, the severance of executive and legislative authority, arrive at curiously different results
