bill to its legislative bodies pto-
viding for the following:

trative tenant" (Some individual
who wants to tackle the job) or.
by local co-operative societies.
2 Government'to advance half
the necessary capital and .'charge
four per cent annual interest foe
3 Such shops not -to exceed
one for each 5,000of the popula
tion. - 1 '

distribution, to monopoly and to
combinations among commission
men and other merchants.
