WASHINGTON, May 2.-That the Cnli-

I "It had." he said, "doubtless been given

He thought a public statement should be

that neither the government, the btale of

AMENDING RAILROAD RATE RII.L
FTlenda of Meaaare Gettlna Together
on a Coart Review Feature.
WASHINGTON. -May 2. With only one
more day for general debate on. the rail
road rate bill. Individual amendments and
combinations of several amendments were
circulated freely on the floor of the sen
ate today with a view to getting some
thing on the subject of judicial review
of Orders of the Interstate Commerce com
mittee on which a- majority of the senate
can agree in advance of voting. One of
the propositions discussed with more than
the usual interest rtven to pending amend'
ments wa. a combination of amendmenta
offered by Senators Long, . Overman , and
Bacon. The. effect of these would be to
recognize the Jurisdiction of the courts.
but -provides that Be . writ of injunction
or -Interlocutory order should 'be granted
by any district or circuit court without
first giving five day.' notice to the ad
verse party and requiring that the order
shall be concurred In and ordered by at
least two judges presiding in the hearing,
and that at least one of these should be
a Judge of the circuit court of the United
State, or a circuit justice of the supreme
court of the United State..
The first clause of this-combination is
taken from the amendment agreed upon
at a conference between the president and
friend, of the pending bill and strikes
out the provision limiting the Jurisdiction
of the courts to a determination whether
the order 'complained of wa. beyond the
authority of the commission or In viola
tion of the rights of the carrier secured
by the constitution.
From the position taken by leader, on
both aide, over the court features ,of the
bill, it Is believed that the senate will
be able to agree upon an amendment sub
stantially in accord with the combination
The original opponents of the bill have
not agreed to accept the compromise, how
ever, and some of them have claimed to-
day the strength to adopt a more radical
review amendment.' Friends ' of the bill
have been equally positive in their a.'
sertlons that nothing can be put Into the
bill providing for a review of, the reason
ablene.a of rate, fixed by the commission.
Sonator Tillman circulated an amend
ment which take, the last clause of the
White House amendment providing for a
review of the constitutional question, and
adding to that the' Bailey amendment pro
hibiting the courts to suspend orders of
the commission pending the review. Thl.
amendment, however. . did not meet with
favor and it Is not certain whether Sena
tor Tillman wHl offer it. v

NEW YORK. May 1-Not since th
Northern Pacific panic of May $, 1901, has
there been such a spectacular decline in
price, on the Stock exchange a. there wa.
today. Ha.vy selling, almost regardless ol
the prices offered, began with the openlug
of the market and from that time till
near the close the tone generally wa. weak.
There wero rallies from time to time when
the bears bought stocks to cover the sales
they had made at higher prices or when
some strong financial interests sent In buy
ing orders to protect shares In which they
were intereoted, but each rally except th
last on Just before 3 o'clock, was followed
by a resumption of the selling movement.
The day's trading was extremely heavy.
rising to the total of 2,445 000 shares. Nearly
700.000 shares of stocks changed hand, iu
the first hour of trading.
Excitement at Openlna-.
Considerable excitement marked the open
ing of the exchange. Yesterday's lata de
cline had prepared the brokers for lower
prices and heavy transactions today and
the attendance on tho floor was very large.
It was known that the commission houses
had heavy orders to dispose of securities
as early as possible and also that there
were forced sales to be made where cus
tomers carrying stocks on margin had
failed to respond to calls for more funds.
Within a few minutes after the trading be
gan many stocks touched new low records
for the year. There was much confusion
as It seemed that every broker had order.

stocks without a moment's delay. At first

stocks which have been the market leader.
for some time past. Anaconda, which
closed last night at 24R, opened at 234, and
Immediately sold at 232, a loss of 14 polnta.
Northern Pacific, which closed yesterday
at 190, opened at 1S8, and on a "running
scale," sold at 1W, 15, then back to UK
and 187. Amalgamated Copper opened at

yesterday, and Union Pacific, which ended
yesterday at H2, first appeared today at

which was oft February 1$. Twelve months
ago the stock sold a. low a. 10O4.
After the first ten minutes there waa a
fair sized rally on covering by shorts,
which carried St. Paul abov yesterday's
closing prices, and the others from 1 to 2
point, above the low; but soon after 11
o'clock there was another violent slump,
which carried prices In many Instances
lower than ever. Copper broke through 99.
The weakness grew more pronounced dur
ing the second hour, when Union Paclflo
was hammered down below 139, Smelter
below 139, Reading down to 116. Anaconda
below 230, Amalgamated Copper below 9$
and Steel preferred to 102.
All Support Withdrawn.
At noon support seemed to have been en
tlrely withdrawn and there wa. absolute
demoralization. Nobody seemed to want
stocks at any price and they were thrown
over so fast that the ticker tape was from
five to ten minutes behind in reporting th
There was another rally at 12:1a, bat thla

There wa. no definite new. to account
for the heavy selling and consequent col

prices, of alleged financial difficulties and
of alleged impairment of confidence in
