by the conferees having charge of the

provision relating to the privileges of
carrying merchandise and newspapers

law it will prevent the carriers hand
ling newspapers or acting as agents
for business houses, but they may
carry merchandise at the request of
patrons living along their routes. This
prov isioii. as it will be placed upon
the statute books, is as follows:
