Houseare playing politics with ap

make heavy cuts, without regard
for the needs, and then let the sen

put them in special bills to come

closely questioned - Representative

total appropriated for shipping.
Messrs. Moore, Britten and Good are
leading republicans, 7mt the rep

Illinois were suspicious cf the gen

It was broivght out that the ship

of monev needed to carry out its

Good admitted that there is a
