that the tanks were unsightly.
James Patterson, superintendent
of the oil concern, said he was anx
ious to hav the work go on as delays
were costly. He introduced John r.
Connolly, an expert oil engineer,
who said it was the idea of the oil
corporation to farce anything on

SuBh must be protected iie urged
that the matter b settled peacefully
and requested representatives ot tht
corporatlcn to mee t on February .i

former Senator Thomas Brown
represented the borough and urged

WASHINGTON. Feb. 28—The sol
diers bonush question was allowed to
simmer today, the special commit
tee dealing with the question of i
ways of raising funds, deferring fur
ther sessions until tomorrow. There
was no indication when a decision
would be reached, but some commit- i
teemen said the bill probably would |
not be reported out of committee
this week or next.
Sentiment in the special committee
seems to be for reporting out a
bill carrying a manufacturers and
wholesalers tix similar to that in
Canada, but lower rates. This It was
said would be taken up when the
committee resumed sitting tomorrow.
This or any other form of sales tax |
is Strongly opposed by approxi
mately 100 House Republicans.

will come up for the notion of the

attention of the jury will be devoted
on the question of rural police. It
is thought that as a result of tomor

taken toward tlie policing or the
rural districts of the county. M
