I I "President St. Paul Federal Farm Loan Bank." This lien effects Williams county seriously. There has been loaned in the county something like $150,000.00 and there are applications for about $350,000 more. Prompt action for the removal of the priority clause of the law is imperative. Seeding time will soon be here and the farmers who have applied for a loan want it right away if it is to be of any bene fit to them. A special session of the legislature would be costly but if the case can't be brought before the su preme court right away then let us have the special session for it would not be as costly as the stopping of these loans to the farmers would be.
