A representative of the Salt Company of Onandaga, the "Great Salt Monopoly" of which Barker was Secretary, demands a fair hearing, angrily protesting "when you hold us up to public odium as a monopoly." The Company admits to economies of scale, attempts to expand its market, stabilize prices, and "carry the salt as near as possible to the consumers." These are good business practices. The Company explains its costs, risks, and practical problems. OCLC locates only the copy at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library.
