Hay, had also appoint ed a commission of employers and employes to draft a "first aid" bill, and the employers backed out when they found themselves in control of the legislature. History has only repeated itself. Promises from fellows who have selfish motives are fine things, but before you pay for a gold-brick, governor, take it to the assay office.
