Kuaer, of the Blgelow-Wlliey Motor Com
pany: "We have not been at all affected by
so-called hard tithes. I do not think tho

as none exists In this country, at least
not enough to worry us. As far ns the
automobile business Is concerned, the
wholesale business Is as good as over, and

conferred with Chairman Henry and sev

not one to be handled by the national

"The Democratic party has not been
silent on this question. It has not at

spoaUIng for tho resolution, said:
"There is no reason why the question
