we have reached that sjint ytt. All
creditors, so far as I know, are exer
cising a great deal of forbearance,
ami it seems to me that a step of that
kind would simply pnralyte what
little credit Is left instead of having a
tendency to re-establish it ; that the
wholesaler Would be refused credit in
the cHst, that ho in turn would lie
'impelled to refuse credit to the
local dealers, and they, for this rea
son, would be eom;elled to refuse it
to their customers, who might Is In

discussing the propriety of culling an

this paragraph which, lu one form or
another, mvids to be in the minds of
many men. ''His calling mi extra

tion of expediency from a business

he thinks it will have U-n the

view, which redui-ed to its essenc

personally from such action."
The Portland lipatch hits the
nail on the head in talking of the
state militia when it suys "It has
no objections to the holiday soldiers.
It is good amusement for the young
men nd keeps them out of mischief.
It regards the militia more as a social
organization than otherwise, pud Is of
the opinion that theexpenses.attc.7d

those of other social or benevolent
societies by its tiiemlicrs." As well
might the Odd Fellows or A. o. l

The case is something like this:

great angle from the main line and
the twenty mile strip earned. These
Htrips eoinuicinv and end w ith a line
crossing the line of the road at right

that the main line ami the branch are
one and the same road, and that the
twenty mile strip on the north and
west side of the road follows the
windings of the truck, and is con
tinuous. Judge liel linger divides

iM'tore mo. in answer will say
that while the present financial
stringency is felt by all classes in all
the iltllerent oivupations in the state,
yet 1 do not think the stringency is
so oppressive as to justify the culling
together of the legislature and incur
ring a inshJIcsh ex"ense, without a
hope of correriHindiiig good, for i
think the law suggested would in
the end do a great dml more harm
I hand you herewith the names of
