Mr. KING.

I have nothing to say in that regard. I have not any evidence at the moment to offer to the House, but 1 would refer hon. members to the report of the select committee appointed in 1888, when the late Mr. Clark Wallace brought up the subject of combines and consolidations I could quote a considerable amount of evidence given before that committee to show that some of these trusts have acted in a manner injurious to the public, and there is strong reason to believe that, without going into details of individual cases, an examination into some, not all of them, would show they had acted in a manner hardly considerate enough of the interests of the vast body of consumers.
