which is true The Post also said that three teams to a fellow living nine miles west of town had been given work which is also true This information the POST did not got from any member of the street car company or any of its but from the man in whose barn the three teams mentioned are now quartered This employe of the Consolidated monopoly then makes this extraordinary statement Any one who will
