1, 1909, were, in the aggregate, slight
ly higher than on August 1, 1908, and
moderately higher than a 10-year av

voted against the bill, and the only

are still pending in the House. They
are more radical than the Carmichael
bill and are designed to aid in the en

around the law. The Ballard bill pro

who fail to put the law into effect.
Both of these bills will be passed.
