Mr. Hieidenhain said: "Before this

have put upon a smafl class of bust

I- not a tax, but an oppression, which
if will close them up. If the gentleman
insist upon the amendments, I tell
them that we hold the balance of pow

and he spoke for the city members, or o
a majority of them, and the Republi- poi
