Henderson was of the same opin

Wilniot said that the P. S. E.
company borrowed at a lower

T. R. & P. company, and conse

borrowed from them Instead of
from other concerns. Wllmot
further said that the P. S. E. com
pany frequently let the T. R. ft P.
have the money at a lower rate j
Of Interest than they themselves
had to pay for it.
The $20,000 was part of $42,-1
