wheat, and that there are now standing upon
the tracks and sideling* three long traius
waiting for room to be unloaded. Oil Satur

in consequence, and it will decline still more

So the Senate went into executive session.

Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, from the Commit

The report of the committee was agreed to.
Mr. C. also, from the same committee, sub
