Despite the pressing of the bill as rap
idly as possible by the Democratic
leaders, the agriculture schedule, per
haps the vehicle of the last vigorous
opposition by the minority, had not
been finished at last night's session
The schedule relating to wines,

The California delegation in the
house opposes the proposed cutting
of the rates on lemons, limes, oran

claims would be Injurious to their In

this afternoon, entailing a loss esti
