WASHINGTON. Feb. k Thera was a
larger attendance in the aenat gallexie
than usual today, owing evidently to the
expectation that ther would be some re
vival of yesterday' cene over Mr. Pt
terson' caucus resolution.
Mr. Tillman opened th proceeding of
th day by referring to a petition previ
ously presented by him from the Red Rock
Fuel company of Wt Virginia complain-
lng that the Baltimore & Ohio company
had refused to permit that company to
connect it track with tboe af tea BalU
more c Ohio, thus, a Mr. Tillman ex
pressed it, "bottling up the company." He
aid that at the time Mr. Elklna had said
there was a remedy under the tate laws
of Wet Virginia. H then presented a
letter from Governor Dawson of West
.r trm ..er,, V- r,n f West
Virginia complaining of the difficulty in
administering the law. The governor
added: "It may be that the Pennsylvania
Railroad company doe not legally own a
controlling part of th Baltimore Ohio
company or the Chesapeake a Ohio Rail
way company or the Norfolk Western
Railway company, but I have no doubt
that an Investigation will show that the
Pennsylvania Railroad company practically
control these tbsee great lines which
traverse West Virginia and which are the
only mean whereby the product of th.
state, including ooal. ran be shipped to
either the lake ln the west or other mar
ket in the east. Hence it Is a fact that

a railroad- trust which practically ays
what part of the tate shall be developed
and what ahall not be developed, how much
coal shall be shirped out of the state, to
what points or ports it shall be shipped
and when It shall be shipped.
"Of course it makes It own rate and we
are helpless. The Pennsylvania railroad is
very largely Interested in the production or
hlpment of bituminou coal; it will nam-
rally look fter Its own interest and the in-
t crests of the people along It line ln
Pennsylvania and elsewhere first of all.
and therefore the interests of West Vir
ginia re subordinated to the interest of
these others and our railroads upon which
we' are dependent are controlled by an
alien corporation practically in competition
with us "
Mr. Foraker expressed the hope thst
there would be an investigation along the
line suggested by Governor Dawson. H
aid that the governor' complaint went to
the heart of the railroad trouble all over
Mr. Hale, from th committee on appro
priations, reported the urgent deficiency
