Mr. OLIVER:

I wish to put in the same -protest against this as I did against the [DOT]other. I think it is a very short-sighted provision. I think we should make it our first principle, in dealing with foreign countries especially, that what we sell will be according to specifications and will be as represented. I certainly cannot appreciate the attitude of mind of dealers who do not want to have the facts as to the commodity they deal in stated plainly, and shown by the certificates and authority of the Government of the country in which the article is bought.

Topic:   INSPECTION AND SALES ACT.
