"There will be a general revision of the
tariff In the near future, but there will
not ho. nor is there any naoeillt; of a
revision of any particular schedule at this

"In that caucus those states west of
Pennsylvania will have a majority of CO
over those states east of Pennsylvania.

never be another tariff schedule that will
