“This is the largest district in
the State in population, and one
of the largest in area. Much of this

the enactment of these and other
laws to effect these necessary
economies and purposes, and I
shall oppose the Imposition of any
further or additional taxes l>y the

(2) Amendment of 7,000-Pound-
“The present state law, which
arbitrarily limits truck loads to 7.-
000 pounds, has proven a burden
and a costly penalty on the people
of this district. I firmly believe this
law should be amended—such
amendment to be submitted to the
legislature after a careful and
scientific study of this problem—in
line with similar progressive legis-,
lation enacted in other states. In ;
6o doing, I believe that the rights
of the general public in the roads

money, should be fully protected.
