The woist feature of the pasngo ot

Dold Packing Company sent a repre

tho demand for money and was foiced
to sit Idly by and see the agents of tho
duliy association pblng n ncfailous
trade with senators, these same agents
admitting that It was costing them a lot
of money, but that thej were detei

These are the facts In the cate and
tho gov ei nor should studj them well
The bill Is class leglMitlon and undoubt
edls unconstitutional, it takes from the
poor man of the state u cheap and
wholesome article of food; it diivcs fiom
the stnte one of the largest Industries of
Kansas City and throws eight hundred
people out of employment; It takes avvny
fiom the stnte an Institution which does
a business of five million dollars a jeni,

Hie department is called upon to ex

of the main features of tho water works

A -tattling fact hns just tranbpiieil

custom was litre to klbs by sworn wit

much of this perjuiy to the methods
employed t 'get costs by arrests and
