He says there are a number of men In the legislature tlils time who are busi ness men, men of ability, and that whilo they are politicians enough to get wnat they want when they want ii. iney win not put up with nny pet ty political schemes or grafting pro " ueneiii oi luvorites or particular localities.

Dr. Colo has been one of the few men who have been working against this proposition In the past and he is naturally delighted that at least the opposition against It has become strong enough to prevent the re enactment of the farce.
