He became a merchant miller in Hamilton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey and was interested in banking and in the manufacture of fertilizer. He served as township clerk for three years. He served as state road commissioner from 1905 to 1908.
Hutchinson was elected as a Republican to the Sixty-fourth and to the three succeeding Congresses, serving in Congress from March 4, 1915 to March 3, 1923, but was unsuccessful in his bid for reelection in 1922 to the Sixty-eighth Congress.
