WA8HINQTON. Feb. !4.-Yesterday'a do
velopmenta In regard to the railroad rate
(luestlon In the senate committee on Inter-
tajte commerce continued to be the upper
most topic about the capltol today. There
wera comparatively few sejintors in their
committee rooms, but those who were
there wera busily engaged In discussing
tlif situation. Among the most active
wre Senators Aldrkh, Dolliver, Clapp and
Elklns, all members of the Interstate cont
inence committee. Senator Tillman, to
Whom waa so unexpectedly assigned the
duty of representing the bill, waa detained
at his horns by llinesa. but his colleagues
wera In frequent communication with him
ovr the telephone. He told them that he
had a alight cold, but felt 4io doubt that
ha Would be able to appear in bis seat In
the I senate on Monday, when he would
report the bill a a directed by the commit.
Speaking today of Mr. Tillman's selection
.Senator Aldrlch expressed great satisfac
tion, saying that under the circumstances
it was the wisest and beat that could be
made. He voiced the general sentiment
a he the seas La In axpreaslag the opinion
that the South Carolina senator woujd
have no dlffculty In rising to the require
manta of the occasion. His selection, how
ever, was an anomalous one, in that ha
has frequently expressed himself as op

committee room to the floor of the senate,
it Is the belief that with such an amend
ment the bill will secure practically all of
the republican votes and Iho claim will
be made that h majority of the republican
genatois would stand out for such a f hinge.
The republican members .f the committee
who refused tc vote for the bill In Its
present slnpe. say there are over thirty
who will stand with them to the end for
this change. Many of the democratic
senators have also expressed a willingness
to accept such a provision. .
Commenting on the bill today. Senator
The first thing to do Is to discover and
Incorporate In the bill the amendments
necessary to perfect It. There was no op-
Iiortunlty In the house of representatives
o amend the bill and there are two very
esientlal amendments reeded to make the
law at ull adequate. One Is the strongest
possible prohibition of the ownership and
control by public carriers of the articles
to le shipped over their lines to Ui ex
clusion of private owners. In other words,
the railroads have a tendency to deal In
some of the commodities that it was sup-'
poaed they would only handle in the ca
pacity of carrier. This applies practically
to the coal business. They should nlo
be required to make connections with spur
lines as contributor lines and supply them
with cars nnd not block them.
The question of adding to the provision
now In the hill tor a Jurlcial review. of the
finding of the Interstate Commerce com
mission should be approached verv cau
tiously. In the first place a decision of
the commission has the same standing as
an act of congress. No court would un
dertake to nullify nn act of congress pend
ing an appeal unless It should lake a high
I can see no reason why a decision of
the commission should be set aside pend
ing an appeal in tne euuita. Any propoHl
tion to set aside such a 'decision pending
action by the courts will receive the
strongest opposition I can give it for one.
No one seeks, and I certalnlv do not. to
deny the railroads the riaht to appeal to
the courts. If a rale is established that
threatens the confiscation of their prop
erty, of coins.) they will have a right to go
Into court for protection.
But for one I am not inclined to accord
to the members of the Interstate Com
merce commission anv less patriotism or
good Judament than is accorded the judges
on the bench. They, in both Instances,
are appointed by the president and con
firmed by the senate, nnd I think one can
be trusted aa well as the other.
When asked if his relation toward the
bill would probably lead to frequent con
ferences with the president, the senator
hesitated a moment and replied: "The
president's views are well understood. He
has expressed himself fully In his message
and Interview. The newspapers have not
spared any opportunity to announce what
they suppose has been his vlewa on this
subject. Therefore, there la no further
need for anybody to get his views, and
ba has been very free to communicate his
views to congress whenever he haa seen Ht
to do so."
"Do you take the view that this railroad
legislation Is a democratic measure now
that It haa been reported by a majority of
democrata on the committee and by a
"It Is a nonpartisan measure." replied'
Senator Tillman. "It la neither republican

YORK, Neb , Feb. .M.-tSpeclal )-"The
men who run for the legislature this year
and herearter In this county will be sworn
to repi-rsent the people, und not the rail
roads." Such Is the declaration of a leading busi
ness man of this town, who i also a stal
wart republican, and In character and In
terest the revcrso of radical. HI state
ment condenses in a sentence the feelliu
of the mass of the people of all parties !n
town and country. The feeling Is Intense.
There I not a more prosperous agricul
tural community In Nebraska, nor in the
west, than York county, nor a more thriv
ing and solidly progressive town thun l!
capital town. It l a strongly republican
county. The temper of the republicans i
conservative. This In one of the countl.-s
that stood out staunch even against the
highest wave of populism. Vet the ropu'i
llcan masses are profoundly convinced that
thrlr Interests have been set aside for sp -chil
Interests, and that they have been sys
tematically euchred out of thcli- lights In
corporation finesse all the way from caucus
and convention to the net rcnult of official
action. The statement of the cllixcn above
quoted merely summarizes the expression
that are heard wherever tho subject Is
started, that the time has conic when cor
poration supremacy must cease.
Still, there is no sign here as yet of tiu
indispensable organization that might vital
ise this public sentiment and make this
county to the utmcMt formidable in a state
wide regeneration. Hucii n. movement, It
be effective, must obviously tuke In the
whole field. Including the United States scii
atondiip, the governorship and stute offi
cers, as well as the legislature. The latter
only ha been so far much thought of nnd
talked of here, and that rather In a general
than a particular way. There I very llttlo
serious discussion here of candidate foi
the United State senatorshlp, nnd almost
none of candidates for governor. In spite
of a well-nigh universal popular conviction
a to what ought In general to be done,
that the state ought to rule the corpora
tions Instead of being ruled by them, thlngi
are drifting, precisely the situation which
the agent and few sympathizers of tho
Central Nniur Is Wanted.
A good republican, a prominent in busi
ness as thotone above quoted, talked freely,
although with a tinge of pessimism.
"There I absolutely no .question," he
said, "as to the demand of the, overwhelm
ing majority of out people. Nine out- of
ten republicans will tell ou that they want
to break the grip of the railroads on the
throat of our state government. But if
yon Inquire for the rallying point or the
sixclllc names that represent thla objective
us u matter of practical politics, they are
wanting. What name for United States
senator moans the very thing that voters
In this county ere asking for as they never
asked before, the thing foiv which they
propose to put ligilative :liilrants under
outh?' What name for governor? What
names foi the three railroad commis
sioners'.' ThlRiis the rsRcntial thing now,
and If i connp-.euous by If abxent'e.'
''I tcYf, you." fie added, "we here may
pledge, aml 'rliaiii up our legislative" fandl
dafes, tout Ihls by ltself would bo-far. from
covering the paramount necessity 'of the
case. If things dr.it, wn. may easily come
to tho county convention In the .same old
way the great majority' for subjugating the
railroad, but the railroads after all getting
the lion's share of results.! "
"Possibly some local condition for state
office mrty be trumped in for the real pur
pose of naming the county' delegates
to the state convention. If that seem pre
carious, then a motion that the chairman
appoint a small committee to nnme the
delegates might be the scheme. If not that,
a committee composed of one from each
township. And thn the old system of
free pascs to 'safe' delegate, not u few
others remaining -at home, and In the wind
up at the state convention a delegation
from Yoik county. In' whole fir in port, to

rest at the behest of the railroad board Of
What I Nnw ceiled.
"If todav or within a reasonable time
candidates for senator und governor should
offer themselves. In whom the people have
confidence, and whose personalities and
records mean what the people- want, the
whole situation would Instantly and utterly
change. The full strength of York county
republicanism would count all along the
line. Disorganization and doubt would
vanish. We are up against a condition.
