any great measure was proposed, opposition
was inn to p oTuqw uu uv "
Congressmen ever to determine what we
need. A delegate would obrtste th neces
sity of tuch conflicts, or rather he would be
there to espouse the interest of th cltlxena
of tbe Dlatrict, and then erefy measure would
rest upon its own merits.
Now if Congress will rraut ut a govern
