the measure was reached , to the astonish-
iccnt of the cntlro state twenty-eight mem
bers , and seine of them belonging to
this sama committee , voted to refer It back to
the committee with instructions to report
first on n bill reducing freight charges. The
committee obeyed nnd nearly a mouth of val
uable time was purposely consumed by the
railroad lawyers In quibbling over technicali
ties and in discussing whether all discrim
ination should bo prohibited , or only bueh as
could bo shown to bo "unduo nnd unreason
able. " They finally succeeded in emasculat
ing the semite bill by adopting a
clnuso legalizing discrimination ! ) in cer
tain cases , mid all the work went for
nothing , The house , meanwhile , had per
fected , with grout care , House Kilo "JI73 , " to
prohibit nil discrimination nnd extortion , and
investing the railroad eommlssloneis with
power to fix rates , and scat it to the senate.
This bill , the senate , after vainly endeavor
ing to amend r.nd strike out it * clauses the
ralhoads objected to. was forced to pass ,
Tbiv. house followed up its good work
by passing a maximum tarifT bill
almost Identical with the rates that
prevail in Illinois , and n two-cent
faro bill ; also n lull providing for the elec
tion of railroad commissioners by the people.
This bill , which was demanded by both po
litical parties , was agreed to by the senate ,
but neither the maximum tariff nor the 8-
cent faro bill were considered by that body.
When brought fai o to fto with the last
named mcabi.ro , the scsnnte , after rotlnp by
twrnty-two to uventy-flvo not to take it , per
mitted itself to bo Rtaoiported by the railroad
senators Into setting n dny for the final ( ad
journment. anJ literally ran away from mini-
orous good measure1' , anil iriuny private bills ,
leaving its v.-uils scarcely half Uono. The
house , having nothing to do , niul with many
members very nnxinus cither to get homo or
to attend the anmml encampment of tint G.
A. K. at Cedar ICupids , was persuaded that
it would not bo proper to hold the senate by
refusing tu concur in the resolution to ad
journ , and force that body tfl consider tticso
bills. So all the railroad legation tbnt was
cr.nctud ilocs not necessarily reduce cither
passenger or freight rnlci cno

fairs will remain unchanged for two year *
at least , nnd thn freight iirvbli-m must bo

TUB r.utMnn SUNATOIIS ,
Strnngo to say , the railroad legislation in
the senate was defeated by farmers. Five
fanner senators--Drawer of Hancock , Kent
of Lee , Payncer of Taina , Mills of Marshall ,
nnd Wclumnn of Montgomery deliberately
jollied hands with railroad lawyers , like
Wnalson , Halter and Cinrlt , to strangle the
house bills. Of these , Mills and Wcidman ,
repicscnt strong anti-monopoly constituen
cies , and it will bo interesting to note the
excuse they will make for deliberately be
traying their interests , To bo called a liberal
11 mi high-minded statesman , n rising man , by
the corporation press seems to bo the height
of ambition by some farmers who acciden
tally become legislators. The railroad lobby
ists murk such for n victim at once , nnd is
A coon sacisunc TIHT FAILED.
Among tha good measures that failed
to become n law in the general hurry
nnd scramble was the bill regulating the
charges of sleeping cars m the state. The
trust bill pulled through nt the very last mo
ment The railroad attorneys assembled in
force to witness the final scenes. They ox ]
nressed themselves ns well pleased with the
result , uud predicted that few of the antimonopoly -
monopoly members would over again bo
heard of in a legislative capacity.
