through the store.

what cash there was in it, about $2,
was taken. The safe, which contain

papers, had been left unlocked and
was opened and searched through,

charged in this state.
He presented figures showing that
the people of this state are paying
alnwt 40 per cent more for the hand
ling of their freight than is done in
