that purpose. .
"Since I nave bejn in the senate I

they are bringing now. The grower
has heretofore been tho victim of that
practice and now the manufacturer is
also being made the victim. It is u
pernicious system, and we have no
right to Rlvo them 12 months' lease
of life lu order that they may reap a

I believe that they have helped more
o? plums and widows to a more satis
