"All things coum to hlui who waits,"
has occurred to mo very often this week
us I noted tho cjiango in sentiment which
followed tlio reporting ot the .Mills turlll

A slight lnodllleatlou lu the bill lias

that the number of Democrats who opposo
tho measure has been reduced to u very
small number, and it is hoped to reduce
tlio number still further before tho bill
comes to a vote.
