caused stationery dealers and users
to look anxiously at their stocks,

fied by tho govornmont, It was
learned hero this wcok, to submit at

president of tho Heco Company, to bo
"Tho government already gets
' '- i 'v
preferential treatment of its orders, at

"An onvolopo shortagu Is posslblo,
though I don't think It will bo serious,
I presumo tho statement which has
been asked for, moans that tho pro
posed ordor for 3,000,000,000 envel

facturers according to their capacity.
It will tako caro of tho needs of tho

"I wish, howovor, that tho onvolopo
Industry would bo listed as ossontlal,
to ennblo us to koep our help."
What hold have tho taxis got on the
