surance company. . This resolution also
was referred to a. committee.

mand. made by "Insurgent"' members n
week ago when the report was first pre
sented and referred, that more detail nc
Included as to cash expenditures.
In the original report was an Item
"Taft and Sherman, 5250," which was

having a. political significance In direct
opposition to the grange's oft-declared
statement that the organization Is non
