Swanson contended that theit (con tract system would allow the blullding tap of a polltital machine, by permitting tihe department to pass on thet trust wro'rtlirness of the hidder's. Present System All Right. Iti. said that thit present systerl by v'' iih'i delnmocratic 'nngt'e'ssnlnti wet'.re al Iowed to name half the carriers in thel'ir distUlt should be continued. Mir. J. P. Willliams of Illinois took issue with Mr. Swanson as to the latter state ment, declaring that Northern demo (rats were allowed no vol'e in the selec tion of carriers. lie believed the contract 'ystetm would take, tthe' wiholt' mattter out of politics.
