NEW YORK, March 25, The business

; "We are runnins a railroad with a
stage coach organization," he continued.

Mr. Root called attention to the fail

"It will be the first and greatest
duty of the convention Mr. Root con
tinued, "to preserve all that is good:
all that has been approved of. I would
rather see a legislature praised for
doing little and doing it well than for

"1 have found that more than 63.0 '.10

state legislatures in this country in the
past live years and more than 65,000

The Burgomaster, with a sense of

General Brown has expressed the opin

The query was called forth through
the contention of the Seuferts and
other fishing companies operating on
the Columbia River, that it was not
necessary to name where the fishwheel
was to be located when request for is
suance of a license was madi The Attorney-General
also holds that the mas

issuance of such license would work
unfairly to other fishing Interests, the
license, may be refused.
