Imagined that Dr. Merryman would
single out his home county from the

the bill was to bo a general one, but
the Doctor learned that such a bill
would have no chance whatovor of

to confine himself to his own county.

The department of the interior
came In for a scoring at the hands of
Representative Mondell when the bill
came up under unanimous consent
n the house. Mn Mondell declared
tliat this bill .was one drawn by the
department and substituted by Mr.
French at thedepartment's request
for one which he had originally in
troduced months ago. Mr. Mondell
said that the original French bill was
much more clear and definite hut,
he said, "tho department chiefs did
not like it, I presume, becauso they
had not drawn It."
Under a bill introduced In tho
