NOTE.—Hearings on “Valuation” will be conducted before the full committee June 12. All meetings will commence at 9.30 a. m. unless otherwise noted. Hearings on free list, administrative, and miscellaneous provisions will be conducted before full committee at the conclusion of the subcommittee hearings.
Stenographic reports were taken of all testimony presented to the committee. By direction of the committee all witnesses who appeared after the conclusion of the hearings on valuation were to be sworn.
The testimony presented, together with the briefs and other exhibits submitted, is grouped together as far as practical in the numerical order of the House bilt, which has made necessary the abandoning of the sequence of the statements and the order of appearance.
