INDIAN u-ous , Jan. 10. The hallways
and conidots of the capitol vveio thionged
w lib an immense crow d this morning to w it-
nnss possible developments In the political
struggle now in progress. All Inteicst was
ccnteied in the house. Dhcctlj'aftei prajcr
the dooiknepci announced the presence of
the senate , consisting ot tlio nine
teen republ'can membnis of that
body. Kelllsun ( dnmociat ) arose , and
called "Mr. Speakei. " but ho was not
recogniml. Speaker Sayio immediately an
nounced tlt.it tno business of tlio convention
was to canvass the vote forjllentenant ov-
ernoi and Ke-llison niraln soiuht n bearing ,
but was iiromptlv told ho was out ol order.
Other democratic nicmbcis claimed the
speakei's attention , but were all letused rec
ognition. At tlio close ot the reading ot the
leturns , Jewell , ( demociat ) addressed
the speaker , bill was told nothing
would bo in order until the

vote was announced ns follows : Hobcitson ,

hand and called "Mi. apeiki'i , " but no at

in n similar mannei but both managed to ex
claim "Mr. Speaker , we do not lecognl/o the
legality ot this joint convention , " pointing
to republican sonatois , "whim theio is no
lepiesciitation ol the senate except tin * fair-
end of that bodv. We protest against this
usuipitlon ot powni and oveiturning of
precedent and law. "
This was the signal for all thn democrats to
bosin noisy demonstrations. The contusion
was so meat that only Individual sneakers
could bo he-aid eec islonnlly and then In n dis
jointed manner , Hohertson held his position
at Ihe desk and Kent UP n vliroions lapping
with llio gavel. Notwithstanding the noKo

commcico bill , and Mr. Heck look Iho floor
Intavorof the conteience report. Mi. Heck
nt 2 o'clock concluded bis remarks on Iho
inter-btatu commcico bill , nnd Mi. Ctillom
took Iho lloor. lie said bo would conlino his
attention at this time lo an explanation of
thu fourth section , long and short hauls , in
respect to which thcro seemed to bo much
ndsuiulcistandlntr.
This section , Mr. Cullom said , simply
undertakes to laj down in bpeellie tcims n
rule 01 niluelplo which , ns 1 lu\o alwavs
contended , is already in eilect contained In
nnothei piovislon ot the bill. The hist ic-
qulromcnt of the bill on the subject of lates
is touiid in the lirst .section and is that all
rates shall be "reasonable and just. " . This
Is In effect that undct similar cncunistnnces
and conditions a gieatei sum shall not bo
charged for shorter than for longei distance
because under such ciicumslniices it would
not bo "reasoiiablo and jusl" to make such
charge" . The next iciiuiicmont ot the bill
that allects the question Is found in the Jirsl
pirtot the section , which forbids giving
undno or iinuasouablo pn leience or ad
vantage lo nny paiticular locality , This is
likewison declaration that a greater sum
shall not bo charged for n shorti'i than tor n
longer haul undei bimllni ciicumslaiices and
conditions , boc inso sueli clnrL'e would bo
m.iking or giving ot "Undue or unreasona
ble pieleiciiLo or advantgo" to one p irlien-
lai locality ; or would subjecl some olliei lo
cality to an ' Undue or unieasouablo pioju-
dice or disadvantage. " ( The senatoi quoted
the tourth section in full ) . As I undcistaiid
it this section , as It now stands , simply pio-
blhlts lallroad coipoiatlons irom chaiglng
n grentei nggiegito siim not n hUher late
lot a bhortei thin for a loinrer distance over
the same Hue , in the same direction nnd un
der substantially similai circiimslances and
conditions , when Iho slioiter Is included in
the longer distance. Theio is no other
prohibition made in positive tcims. The
ileclaiation that "this shall not be tonstiued
ns aiithoii/ing nny common canior within
Ibo terms of tills act to ch irge and leceivo as
gieat a compensation toi a slioiter as for a
longei distance , does not in ( onus prohibit
the chaiglng as much foi shoitei as lor
longer distance , but simply withholds legis
lative sinction f loin the making ol such
ehaigo. This iualllv | ing clause negatives Iho
infeienceslhat might possiblj be diawu troin
the language ot the section without those
vvoids , namely , that ui oiiual chaise lor a
bhoiter dlstniico Is aiithon/ed bv infeieiico
necuiso enl > a gicater clnige is prohibited.
This iiualihcation , theieloie , leaves Iho question -
tion ol whether an equal amount can be
clmiged foi a slioiter dis'ancc to bo
detcimiiied by the piovislons ot the
bill to which 1 have alieady lelerred
requlilns all clnrgei to bo reasonable and
toi bidding the giving ot umeasonablo prefer-
ente or advantage to any paiticular locality.
'Iho leiiidrement of the fourth section then
is that between shlpmi nts ol the same kind
in the same dliection o\i'i the simo line and
made under substantially similar ciicuni-
stances and condition" , ereater hums hhall
not ho charged lei n shorter than for a longer
haul when the shortei comprises apait ol the
longer h ml not that a highei late Mi ill not
bo i barged DPI mile , but that a gieatei aggre
gate sum shall not be ehaiged. The limita
tions placed upon the prohibition tint Is
made are vcrj' lignihi ant and should not bo
overlooked. 'I hej lequlre thai in determin
ing the sums that ma > bocliaiged fora shorter
ascompaied with a loii'/er distance Iho re-
quiiement must bo made : 1. Hetween ship
ments "ot like kind of propertv ; "
, ' . "Under bubstanllallv Mini-
lar elicumstanccs and conditions ; "
: ! , "Over the same lines ; " -1 , "In the same
diiectlon ; " 5 , "When n shoitei Is included
within a longer distance. " When tlio net is
to be applied In any uivea ciso to Iho meas
ure ehaigo that may be made lot an > distance
ascomimiul with the longer distance , all
limitations must bo taken into account and
thej must all appl > to thocasu , not tluee ot
four ot them , but all of them. The iiist ,
tourth and hftb of these limitations do not
appear to tall tor nny limitations , but lint
w cond nnd thlid need some explanation. As
1 understand them , the wouls 'ciicumsiaiiies
nnd conditions" mean conditions that I
govein railway Irattle nnd cliciimstanccs
under vvldeb it Is truinportcd. To my mind
tbeso words are lull ot moaning. They
eomprehend all circumstances and condi
tions which may lustily differences In
rates , such as competition with othei loads
and water routes , tno voliimn and character
of business at dilleient points , the dllfeienco
in terminal expenses and the cost of tenleo
In each case. If the vvoids used vveio thn
'vamo circumstances nnd tomlitlous" the In
cenloiis railway gentleman would bo able to
show that circumstances nnd conditions were
never oxacth the t > amo In an > two cases ,
\ml the > might also bo able to show that
thej vvcru not similar if that was the word
used , lint the vvoids "substantial ! } similar"
Impait enough latitude to the compnilsoii lo
enable the courts to exercise sound discre
tion nnd common scnso In passing upon
cases that maj arise , bo far as any ono rail
road company Is conceined , Iheiufoie , the
sum which It maj ehaigo for a haul Irom onu
end ot its road to the oilier end pecomes
thu maximum amount It can cnnige for
nnj bhoitci haul over that road In the same
dlnction nnd under substantially .similar
circumstances and conditions when the
shorter distance is included within the
larger. Hut Iho quistion which seems lo
trouble these who object to the section ns it
btands Is whether thu maximum thus fixed
Is the amount which the railroad company
charges upon shipments onglnallngat and
destluod to points unon Its own line , or
whether the maximum Is the sum which It
accepts as Its bhaio ot a through rate upon
shipments passing o\ur ltd load which in-
at or are destined to
points upon another road. It
seems clear to mo that iheio can
bo but oue answer to that Question. In
the first place , the measure of charge that
may be iiitdo for the shorter distance Is the
sum Ihal Is charged for the longer distance
over the ame line and under substantially
similar circumstances and conditions. 'Iho
rates lixed bj the ralltond companies between
points upon its own road are clearly rates
upon 1i ono line , or. In the terms of tno bill ,
1t "tho same line. A railroad company can
make and control rates upon Its own road
and ( l the section sajs that In demanding suc
rates the short haul principle shall be ob
served. A railroad company cannot carry
|
over roads of another company , but when
two t 01 more companies unite. . In making
Joint rates over their respective loads they
iK'como In thn ejo ot this bill ono
line ; and this section sajs that tlio
shoit hull principle must bo observed In
making rates over that line , the two or
moro mads composing It being within the
meaning of the section tlio same line , so tar
as such joint rates are concei nod. The w ord
"ralhoid" Is used Ihrou houi the bill and the
won ! "line'1 is used only In this section. Tlio
courts will be bound to assume that the word
"lino" means somcthtngdllfcrcnlfiom "rail-
load , " 01 It would not have been used In this
one Instance , when thoword"rallioad" would
natural ! } have been used If something dltfei-
cnl bad not been intended ,

cis on Iho tnrllf question nro verv much dis
gusted over the situation. Ono of the most
prominenl of these a well-known demociat
from Ponnsvlvania spcaklne of the situ
ation lids moiiiiiig , said : "Although I have
been Invited bvMi. ' Kandall to bo present nt
his conference's , and although t am wilh film
in bis work , i have not bothered nijself
about tarllf matters since congress adjoin tied
last summer. It has come to a pass when it
makes nil thn dilleieneo Imaginable who pie-
sentt , the suojeet of tarifl to the house. If
Monlbon leads then Kandall opposes ,
and vlco vcisa. Of eour o when
either wing of the dcmociatle
side leads out on n subject the
rcrmblUniio oppoio solidly , simply because
they will not support a democratic measuie.
This is child's play , and 1 am most heartily
sick of It. I am opposed lo a general revision
ot tlio larlu" , but believe , and so does Mr.
Jtandall , that something must be done to do-
ciease the levcnues from customs dues. Of
couiso this can only be done by placing niti-
clcs ot common use on tlio frco list , as the
simple i eduction of dut } on an article stimu
lates Impoits and Increases the rovniiue. Hut
It Morilson should pionosoa scheme of this
kind our people , the Kindill men , would
oppose It , oven thoiiL'h it was just what they
wanted , and they would bo se ( ended b } tlio
cntno lepubllcaii side ol the house.
" 1 believe that wo could get together and
pass a Old enlarging the free lost 11 it were
not lor tlio suu'iii question. The lenublie.ans
want Iifosugai 01 a decided reduction ot
the dut } on it. As the south represents the
sugar Intelests and Is democratic wo cannot
please the icpubllcans In this respect and
thereloic , to my mind , the last scheme tor le-
dueing the lovenuo and iclleving ( ho cus
toms laws will f.iil. It is possible , but not
piobable , that vvn nmv get togethei at this
session and nbolNi the tax on tobacco , fruit
brandy , nnd alcohol to be used in
the nils : but this is not piobiblo
owing to tlio childlike situation In
which we bud ourselves , and the piojndica
existing against pioposltlonsmadebj ceitain
Individuals. I hear that Sunset Cox Is to be
chiiiman ol the coiumittio on wajs and
means In tlio next congress , and Is to take
the place ol Mi. Monison In the aflcetlons
and favor ot bpiakni Carlisle , and th.it he is
to be the Moses to lead oui paity out of tlio
tariff wihleiness. It Is mj picdlclloii , how- in
evei , that he will make n more dismal failu/o
than did Mr. Monison , because out side / ol
the house will have the same composition
