Speaker Grows Ironical.
Reference wiji imde to, the, claim Uiat
tne enactmenf ol the, proposed legislation
would demoralise the, railroad system and
business interests jit the country and In
that' conection Mr.-Raynor said he would
admit that '.'it , would be a great pity to
destroy the equilibrium or destroy the
proper balance of Messrs. Vanderbllt. Mor
gan, Gould and Hairtman, and added:
Things are In such tine shape around
thla table that It would be a shame for any
uninvited guest tc break into the harmony
of the scene and turn it Into a Belshazzar a
feast. We . must not suppose thst these
gentlemen ere indulging in any luxuries

who have already made eo many sucrlflces
or seinsn devotion to the Interests of the
Nebraska Declaloa Cited.
On the question of a' review of the find
tngs of the commission by the courts Mr.
Rayner said hs had .reached the conclusion
that "under the Nebraska decision, In the
case of Bmytli against Ames, the courts
with power reposed in them will give ample
protection to the carriers In every ease
where the commission does not allow them
Just compensation, and will not compel
them to prove that a single rate Is abso.
lutely confiscatory." "
He would, however, have it understood
that he was oppoaed to the provision per
mitting the courts to suspend the orders
of the commission during the pendency of
the proceedings, saying:
I am in favor of un smendment to the
Hepburn bill vesting In the court the right
to try the question of unjust compensation
with restraining orders abolished, and the
further rlglit, if possible, to let the court
fix the rate if It reverses the order of tne
commlsHlou. With these changes I am In
favor of the bill us pucaud by the house,
and if we cannot get these channea I prefer
to lake the bill as it is rather than to mu
tilate and dcBtroy Us efficiency.
Announcing that his interests are Iden
tified with the railroads, Mr. Rayner said:
The Interstate Corn me ice uommissloii sill
not dale to take an atep that will depre
ciate the property of -the people or cause
any extreme changes in railroad manage
ment or policy. i 'm Ini.sinehH Interests of
tli country would not aulimit to aueu
action aoU tbe courts would not saoiiou
or lolerule It. I wouUl therefore advise the
lallroads, as their friend, to withdraw tlieir
ssents and tlieir counsel and their repre
sentatives from the scene of oontllcl and
let the conflict cease. Juet a truce go up
between the people ajid the corporate In
terests of the country; let Hie corporate in
terests make some conceKione tu the rights
t the public. You i Upend ii .i trie people
for your ilvlihixxl and your irotlts abso
lutely snd entirely. No, lake them Into 1
your conrtrtem-e and do not possess yeur- )
veil l me uriusioii mac your railroads ex
ist for the sole hturfit of your stock
holders and that the people have no'rlxnta
that It Id your duly tu regard. If you fall
to take some such advice as this, then I
believe you will rue the day.
During ths progress of his speech Mr.
Rayner engsged in a fonfreversy with Mr.
Dolltver over the rights of parties to any
case arising under the bill to go Into the
United Btutea courts.,. He contended that
no such privilege waa granted and none
exlstsd unless es much gs t2.o"0 waa In
volved, while Mr. Dolllver urged the Juris
diction of ths circuit courts.
In the course of his remarks Mr. Rayner
suggested that some ralUmad lawyer had
been instrumental In framing some ports of
the bill v '
Mr. Do!Uvr declared thai uu outside al-
torney except the attorney general hsd
been consulted In the preparstion of the
Proposed Deinoera tie Ameadateats.
Mr. Rayner outlined the proposed demo
cratic amendments, saying thst they would
do away aith the suspension provision and
give the courts the right to try the ques
tion of the Just compensation, if these pro
visions could be accepted he said the bill
could be passed today.
Both Mr. Lrfxlgo and Mr. Foraker took
exception to some remsrks of Mr. Rayner,
the former to bis advice to the railroad offi
cials to amend the hill and Mr. Foraker to
reference to him and to Mr, Alrirlch as
being pleased over the good fortune of theJ
Mr. Rayner declared that he hsd no pur
pose of intimating that either Mr. Lodge or
Mr. Foraker rotild be Influenced by the rail
roads or any one else to swerve one lota
from their sense of duty ss senators. But,
he said, he did believe th.nt If the railroad
Interests would agree to do so they could
have the suspension provision taken but of
'Do you believe they put It In?" de-
msnded Mr. Lodge, snd the Matyland sena
tor replied that he entertained no such
Mr. Forsker made especial complaint
concerning the reference In speeches in the
senate to "be advocates of special Inter
ests" In this body and snld he had heard
them more than once.
"I want to say once for all." he added,
"that I have no Interest In any railroad and
that I am not Influenced by anything ex
cept a sense of duty."
Mr. Dolllver outlined his attitude on the
question of suspension, expressing the opin
ion that the powers of a court of equity
cannot be abiding. A provision like Mr.
Bailey's would be agreeable to him if It
could be sustained by. the courts. He ex
plained his apparent sensitiveness relative
to the remsrks of Messrs. Rayner and Till
man by saying that "he had had such a
hard time defending the bill from the at
tacks of Its enemies that he felt that he
had a right to expect more charity toward
It from Its professed friends.
After further discussion Mr. Cullom re
marked that "this thing had gone ah. nit
far enough," and at 5:10 p. m. moved sn
executive session. The motion prevailed
and at 5:17 p. n. the senate adjourntfl.
WASHINGTON, March 14-The second
day of general debate on the legislative bill

provd to be absolutely false. One of these
statements was that Wain had passed the
