Ilr J. JJarrcll rcmarkcd that having intro

now pcrfcctly voicelcss in thu othcr

that loudly calls for a rcmcdy. Tliis hill
noiio would deny would ad'ord the rernedy
sought, and in liis view it would hc pcr
lcctly harmlcBS in its opcration. Although
empowcring niiiiontics, under ccrlain cir-

infi'iugiiig the gencral principlc of tho
