Washington, D. 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. The interest of the public in the de
bates is simply intense. The seating capacity
of the galleries is not largo enough to accommo-

and men and women both seem more than Prepaid

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. This is normally a democratic
district and the democrats would ordinarily carry
it without a republican bolt The chances are
