The House agricultural appropria
tion bill carries an appropriation of
$360,000 for free seed, the vote stand
ing 145 to 65. In framing the measure
this appropriation had been omitted
on the grounds that the price of Seeds
had dropped and that the free, distri
bution of the same was not justified
to the extent formerly pravaling. The
65 members voting in opposition were
most persistent in their ecorts to de
