The ery for relief comes from thfe oppressive book monopoly has been going up for yeare I las the public no spirit for independence left witliin it that it wiil forever eubmit to such bare-1'aced imposdtion ? On this day the people of the state elect members of the legislature. As the Express says, the legielature eau remedy tltis eviil if it wlll.
