of the kind that adds to tho ma

is generally admitted that tho
state government is already top
heavy with too many public
officials, boards and commis

are known to bo good friends, so
those ofiice seekers who were

expressed in their slogans the
fact that they were opposed to
commissions and would reduce
taxation. Such slogans made
ideal bait for votes, for tho peo

which would create a new office
