pf entering into a secret understand

the view of securing the city valuv
able water rights in the Owens Riv

private parties haying prior claims.
Mr. Mondell detiounced him for, as
he eharged, illegally paying the ex
penses of forest officials, in* attend
ing conventions in the West, in which
the government had no part and also
of spending government money to
boost his bureau in the public news
papers. Mr. Pinehot was defended by
Mr. Pollard, Nebraska, and Mr. Scott,
Kansas. The bill was under discus

.tho forest service was fought over,
with the result that many provisions
were stricken out. '?j

After having undergone many
changes, the paragraph of the agri
cultural appropriation bill relating
to the bureau of forestry, was finally
passed by the House of Representa-*

their attacks on the bureau and in
this they were supported hy Messrs.

of Washington. These embraced
charged that the bureau, had created
timber monopolies in favor of ?large
corporations, illegally assumed juris
diction oVer the water rights belong

that the railroads had failed to meet

that there had been a steady increase
in business which tho railroads had
not met and that it would be neCes

fiscal year were $980, which ls $180

average for the fiscal year ended
July 1, IS05, the year of the last

all operating expenses, including in

had used it sooner, as it would have saved me lots of pain and also
lots of money. With the first application I was able to l?y out "
straight jn bcd - what I had not done in seven weeks - as I had
been forced to sit on thc side of the bed with my feet resting on the
floor. Have used three bottleS*of your liniment, and it has loosened
thc cordj sp that I can sleep nights. I was able to go to work this
week and the rheumatism has not bothered me any, only on damp
days in the mornings, bui will soon work that off. Am a long
shoreman, Ioa'ding and unloading foreign ships, and have recom
mended Minard's Liniment to several of my fellow-workmen that
have the same trouble with stiff joints. The other liniments I
used did not seem to take the stiffness out of the cords. Yours truly,
