It Las not been many wccl:s since
redbot" Democrats were asserting that

Democrat in Oregon or elsewhere, with

enough stock in assertions as above
quoted who will take 90 cents on the

the United States ! There isn't a solv

substance of the agreement as reported :
A tribunal of arbitration is to be ap

which is the. proper return to be count

final, but is to be left to revision by
Congress. The two houses are to brief
ly debate it and then vote upon it, and
it both do not agree to Tejcct it, then
it is to remain, and the return submitted
tor such vote u to be counted tor a
