Delegate Oury in his speech at Mineral Park a year ago told us that one of the reasons that he accomplish ed so little at AVashington was be cause he was a democrat and as such- had no influence with the repub lican majority in Congress. Seeing that the present Congress is decided ly democratic, our delegate has no excuse for not doing something for his constituents during the coming session. "We have received a copy of Copp's TJ. S.
