Mr. OLIVER.

It applies to grain that is passing through a terminal point and is not put into the elevator. The Senate Bill provides that such grain must be unloaded and weighed and then put back into the car again before it goes forward and a charge

is made against the grain. It was considered by the Senate sound public policy that grain passing east should have the advantage of being officially weighed where there were conveniences for weighing it. But on further consideration it was thought that if a man did not want to take that precaution and would rather save the expense, he could give an order to that effect and his grain would be sent forward without being weighed.
