of tho contemplated action became
known when a copy of a petition to
tho commission concerning tho com
plaints of tho sottlors was received
by tho Hend Commercial Club.
Tho settlor's complaints aro tho
Bamo as havo had so thorough an air

tenance foes and tho expected general

Tho novel aspect of tho proceed

Commission. Lawyers familiar with
tho statuto giving tho commission

At any rato, before results enn bo ob
