C, March 19.- While the sit uation in the senate as regards tho railroad rato bill is not entirely satisfactory to Senator Till man and the other democrats leading the great fight in behalf of tho shippers of the United States, they feel confident, at least, that in a few weeks tho upper branch of congress will dispose of this important measure. As previous ly pointed out in this correspondence the friends of the main proposition aro not a unit as to the extent tho bill ought to bo amended. Tho ques tion, however, will bo weighed carefully, and there will be abundant opportunity between now and the time the voting begins for the democrats and the republicans acting with them to confer and agree upon changes tho reform element think should bo made to perfect tho proposed law. No careful or accurate poll has yet been mad by the democrats for the reason that a great many of the senators on both sides of the cham ber have not. desired to make it They are wait ing to hear more of the speeches on. the en grossing subject. As much as the question has been discussed within the past three years, with the thousands and thousands of printed pages of testimony taken at tho various committee hearings, and the pages that havo been written by the brightest men connected with the press of this and other countries, it would seem that there is little more to be said. And yet nearly every prominent senator who takes the floor manages to hold the closest attention of his audi tors. New arguments aro constantly being ad vanced.

SttlSjS A CllGntS meQ here, aro in a perturbed state of mind over tho recent turn of events. As published in the daily papers a Roosevelt republican, club was recently organized at Cincinnati. The president-and sec retary of war were unanimously elected honor ary members of the organization. Judge Taft writing for the president and himself, threw a big bomb into the camp of the dominant , faction out in the big Ohio city. In plain language the secretary told the reform element in his partv that if that old combination of republican trick sters persisted in maintaining the machine and nominated objectionable men for office it was the duty of honest, sincere and fair-play repub licans to bolt. This thrust was aimed directly at Cincinnati republicans who train under tho banner of Senator Foraker. Boss Cox and Sen ator Poraker, through force of circumstances, have been compelled for years to have a close political alliance, even if it was not agreeable to all concerned. On occasions, too, -in -the past when Senator Hanna was living arid at the head of political affairs in Ohio, Boss Cox, Senator Foraker, General Dick, Goneral Grosvenor and the rest of them had to make a semblance of getting along harmoniously. . .,Tw,. Publican conventions have been held in the Sixth Ohio district that is now represented m the house by Congressman Thomas Edmund Scroggy, of Xenia.
