THE KING IS DEAD!
The King ia dead, but then the King was old.
His eye was pale and dim, his blood was cold,
His heart no longer beats fearlea and bold,
The King is dead, his beard lay o'er his breast,
White as the winter snows and he loved best
To Bit beside the hearth and dream and rest.
Well that the King is dead-'tis meet the crown
Should cover curling locks of golden brown,
'Tis well the King should lay the scepter down.
LONG LIVE THK KING!
Long live the King! so strong and fresh and fair,
With eyes so darkly blue and goldea hair, -And
bold as some young lion in his lair.
Long live the King! The down is on his lip,
His sword is in the scabbard on his hip;
The cup of glory he is fain to sip.
Long live the King! A ruler just and true,
The best of all the Kings we ever knew,
Because the latest flowers his way bestrew!

Washington, Jan. 5. A bill making
sweeping changes In the, interstate
commerce laws for the regulation of
railroads was introduced In the house
by Representative Mann of Illinois,
chairman of the committee on Inter
state and foreign commerce. The bill
ls not in accord with the one pre
pared by the committee acting under
the direction of President Taft and
known as the "Administration Rail
road Bill," but was prepared by Chair
man Mann during the summer vaca
tion of congress.
The measure does not provide for a
Bpecial court to hear Interstate com
merce cases, as has been reported
would be the form of legislation on
this subject, which President Taft
would recommend. It proposes, how
ever, to create in the department of
common o and labor a bureau to be
called the "bureau of transportation,"
where a shinier may file a complaint
agajnst a railroad'. If, after an lr
vestlgatlon, the commissioner of the
bureau of transportation finds that
