the new regulations will be inferred
from the fact that during the three
months from April 1 to June 30,
1903, only 3250 tons of fresh meat
were imported into Germany, against
4716 tons during tho same period in
1901, and 5777 tons in 1902. Tho

Had the Governor been a common
lack-leg lawyer he would have seen
that the tax bill, as passed by the
late Legislature was unconstitutional,
but Governor Chamberlain allowed
the bill to become a law of the State.
Tho Legislature had before it for
consideration about 600 bills, of
which number probably 150 were
