Checklist of United States Public Documents, 1789-1909, Third Edition Revised and Enlarged, Volume 1, Lists of Congressional and Departmental Publications

NOTE.-In accordance witA the usage of the Congressional record and its predecessors-the
Annals of Congress, the Register of debates, and the Congressional globe-this Checklist uses
the legislative day for the termination of the sessions of the first 56 Congresses and the calendar
day, beginning with the 57th Congress.
The practice of Congress in this connection is based on the fact that it does not recognize the
calendc- day, but recognizes the legislative day. The legislative day of the 3d of March does not
expire until 12 o'clock noon on the 4th of March. Practice construes the law. On Mar. 3, 1851, a
resolution was offered in the House of Representatives to test this question, and on the ruling of
the Speaker it was decided that the Congress expired at noon on the 4th of March; which ruling
has been in effect ever'since (Hinds' precedents of House of Representatives, v. 5, p. 863). Action
to the same effect was takoein the Senate on the same day (Hinds' precedents, v. 5, p. 862).
In these Congressional tables, titles are usually given in the "Notes " column for the largest document
in each volume; when this is the first in the volume, its document number is not specified.
