WASHINGTON. March $l.-(8pecial Tele
gram.) Th fact that Senators Millard and
Burkett took a quiet, but exceedingly ef
fective hand In the Blair pnetofll" fight
has caused some members of the Nebraska
delegation to wonder If the so-called "Iowa
Idea" of dispensing patronage Is really a
flesh and blood agreement, or a "spook"
to be "shooed" away at the option of the
It will be recalled that after much dis
cussion over th district attorneyship and
marahalship vacancies, created by the re
moval of Judge Baxter and Mr. Matthews,
the whole Nebraskardelegntion was invited
by Senator Millard, as dean of the delega
tion, to participate In the selection of their
successors. At that meeting the "Iowa
Idea" of filling vacancies waa debated at
length and adopted. This '-'Idea" gives
the senators one vote each on every propo
sition, together with the representatives
Interested. That Is to say, should a vnc
ancy occur In the North Platte section
then the representatives from the North
Plalte section. Including the senator, would
decide on the succession. Of course, this
did not happen In Mr. Goss' case, for every
body took a hand in his selection, but that
is the theory of the "Iowa Idea."
t'nder the "Iowa Idea" the senators abso
lutely keep their hands olt the postmasters

tacitly told the members ff the house,
through their action In the Blulr case, that
they must be consulted and if the ni;in

WASHINGTON, March SI. Friends of the
house railroad rate bill. In conjunction with
President Roosevelt, at the White House
today agree on an amendment providing
especially for Judicial review of orders of
the Interstate Commerce commission. This
amendment will be presented on Monday
by Senator Long, a pronounced opponent
of any amendment which would permit
the railroads to obtain a review of a char
acter amounting to a retrial pf the merits
of the commission's order.
Senators Allison, Cullorn, Dolliver, Clapp
and Long, Attorney General Moody and
Interstate Commerce Commissioners Knapp
and Prouty were called to the Whit House
late this afternoon. Soon after they as
sembled the president submitted th court
review amendment that was afterward en
dorsed by all present. A number of th
conferee previously had seen the draft.
but It authorship was not disclosed. Th
president announced that he had decided
upon the; meeting because he desired to
ascertain th present state of feeling In
congress regarding a Judicial review feature
In the legislation. It waa made clear that
he had not changed his views regarding
the pending bill, and similar stands wer
Uken by th others. The president thought.
however, that in deference to lb large
number of senators who honestly believed
that the bill without such a feature would
not be constitutional, the bill should be
amended. If It could be done without a
surrender of th purposes of the legislation,
This could be done, he believed, by an
amendment which h then read.
Test of th Aueadnaeat.
The amendment proposes to strike out
the paragraph at tho bottom of page 14, and
Insert aa a part of section It the following:
That all order of the commission, except
orders for the payment of nwiney. shall
take effect within such reasonable time as
ahull be prescribed by the i-ommUslon and
shall continue for such period of time, not
exceeding two years, as shall be prescribed
In the order of th commission, unless
sooner set aside by th commission or sus
pended or set aside In a suit brought
against the commission in the circuit court
of the t'nlted States, sitting as a court of
equity for the district wherein any carrier,
plaintiff in said suit, has its principal
operating office, and Jurisdiction Is hereby
conferred on tho circuit court of the United
Slates to hear and determine In any such
; suit whether the order complained of wa
oejoiiu ine auinoniy or tne commission or
In violation of the rights of th carrier
secured by the constitution.
Discussions of the amendment continued
for an hour or more. It was carefully
analysed to ascertain whether under Its
terms an order of the commission lowering
a rata could be delayed In taking effect
Attorney General Moody and other lawyer
point out -that the discretion of th com
mission Is absolute. Without specifically
declaring against restraining order It
makes It extremely doubtful whether a
court would attempt to Interfere with an
order except la the manner provided.
Beaat Will Accept It.
When th president asked whether an
amendment of that character would b
adopted by the senate th senators present
said they thought they could ' promts
twenty-nln republican vole for It, and
there is little doubt that practically th
entire minority would aupport li
