districts in violatiou of statutes f
of Congress and the constitution
Such discrepencies exist in the

before the Supreme Court the
Republicans carried the Eleventh
I by over 21000 while the Demo
crats carried the Eighth by about
I 1700 and the Third by about 500
The Kentucky Court ot Appeals
held that it had no power under I
the State constitution to review
reviewI
the action of the Legislature in
districting the State for Congress I
ional purposes and it questioned
fie power of Congress to daso

A Missourian who had forty hogs
sold them last spring at 95 cents a
pound They averaged 250 pounds
apiece so he received 23 75 for
each hog or SgSo for thelot Now
the price has declined to about
65 cents A consignment of the
same size and same average weight
would bring only 16 25 each or
650 for the lot This represents
the reduction in the price of meats
from the stanpoiut of the consumer
there is nothing to add to past
statements on that subject While
price to the producer has declined
to an extent making it keenly felt
the price the consumer pays hasnt
I declined enough to be perceptible
