Charles Bos, a former deputy, who claims
that the finance minister slandered him In

laux raised his cane, but he did not strike
back, saying as he drove off, "A blow by

Advocate of th customs commlnslon's

day bnd assailed those who favor referring
the bill back to the government as traitors
to French Industry. M. Cruppl, the minis

deemed useful, but would not consider It
self bound by the action of the chamber.

was "better Informed upon conditions and

what he was advocating would make more

"And the senator from Rhode Island
