taxed nnd governed to death.
He took it for granted thai the fair

and it would be churged to the patriot

do us the rest did he would have to vole

would vote for Texas' neighbor, St.

iieople a chance to go to the lair with the

taxation left in their pockets. Hliceould
get enough nicmliers to vole his wnv lie
would fix the site in Ins own district. As
it was, he would vote to fill the blank

would vote ngninst the bill altogether.
nir. .Morse, ot Mlissaclltiselts, an

that the proposed exhibition, wherever

Mr. Ilouk, ol Icnnrssec, wanted tlx

Mr. Wilson, of West Virginia, siml thai
we had had n series of tenteuuials duo

They allayed section. d ieelings eiigen

Mr, Carlisle, wished to restate and
emphasize the considerations that would

was worthy ol llie lair. The exposition
was to give the iieople of the old world
not an insiuhl into our ureal ninuufac

them our great country. Sinnllcrcouiilrics
than this possessed rival manufacturing

should show our great rivers and moun

great city, hat it did not include the en

had a variety, each differing inessential
