Legislature, which authorized Governer
Nelsen of that state te issue a call for
such a congress. The call provides that

Commissioners, te be chosen by their re
spective executives. The Governors of
twenty-six states have appointed Com
missioners. The chief object of the
gathering is te form a general movement
against coal combinations. Other cembi
