Mr. Rayner aaid that he would not pre
tend to make an assault upon the presi
dent or pretend to charge him with selfish
r dishonest purpose, but that th processes
of reasoning, through which he reached a
conclusion were ao changeable that It was
Impossible to follow him. He said that he

It up frequently, exhibit It beautiful color
In symmetrical form, but after you have ad
lusted and focused It It files Into Its orig

Dolllver Answers Rarstr,
When Senator Rayner concluded Sena
tor Dolllver took tha floor, ' aylng that If
he felt about the bill a did Mr. Rayner
he would' not vote for It. "The bill Is not
revolutionary or dangeroua legislation,"
he aaid, and predicted that it would have
the popular approval.
He proposed to defend neither the bill
or the president, but aaid there are millions
who will not think less of the chief execu
tlve for bringing hla party Into accord
In the legislation. Whatever may be said
for or against the president, continued Mr.
Dolllver, he come out of the fight with
every proposition he haa advanced written
In plain tens In the statute book of th
United States. That the bill is a perfect
response to the president's recommends
tlons he contended and then quoted those
recommendation to sustain that declara
tion. Whatever may be said of tha presl-
dent, he concluded, "he will be remem
bered aa the fearless leader, who, without
regard to personal comfort or regard for
consequence, haa taken up these great
questions and secured their enactment Into
Senator Teller expressed the opinion that
the bill a amended by th aenate was a
much better measure than when It came to
the senate. He expressed regret that there
had been an effort to give tha bill partisan
coloring and denied the right of the presi
dent to call senator or member to the
Whit House and Instruct or request them
how to conduct themselves. He would,
however, give the president credit for giv-
ing life to the measure, for without that
Initiative he did not believe the republican
party would hav permitted the passage of
Foraker Eiplala ma PosltUa.
Senator Foraker aaid there were om
aectlona that h would like to aea enacted
into law and that If he could vote upon
those sections aa such be would be re
lieved of great perplexity. He, however.
had an unchangeable opinion on th right
of congress to enter upon Ui rata making
power and could' not secure his' own assent
to cast an affirmative vote for th measure
aa a. whole.' Hence, though ha stood alone,
he meant to east hla vote against th bill,
knowing It ha voted alone he had support

Dolllver' contention that the pending bill
waa a compliance with the president's
recommendations, saying that the contrary
was true and that it did not contain pro
visions that would enable the Interstate
Commerce commission to ascertain what
are either Just or reasonable rates. He
also deprecated the Idea of making it a
party question. "It may be dona here, but
not in the country at large." he said. "You
cannot divide the pnople at large on the
question aa to whether the railroads shall
serve tha people equitably and justly."
UFolUtle Criticises Cnlleaaraes.
Speaking of the defeat of hla own amend
ments, he said:
"They were voted down by republican
colleagues, who had been lined up under
the leaderahlp of New England senators."
He contended that the addition of his
amendments would have strengthened the
measure and they should have accepted.
He then entered upon an argument against
overcapitalisation and said that ao long as
It waa permitted the question would re
main a live Issue.
"It will not be possible to keep it within
the closed doors of the committee rooms,"
he said In conclusion.
Senator Bailey announced hi conviction
that the bill waa a vast Improvement over
the existing law and said he would vote

That the bill was Incomplete and frag
mentary waa the opinion expressed by
Senator Newlanda. but he announced hla
purpose to vote for It as an advance on
Ttllaaaa Credits Roosevelt.
Anxlots aa were senator by thl time
to reach a vote, there was nevertheless
much Interest manifested when Senator
Tillman took the floor. After announcing
his intention to vote fur the bill as "the
best he could get," he entered upon the
task of acknowledging the Instrumentality
of the president In securing the legislation.
He cam bluntly to the point, aaylng: "But
for the work of Theodore Roosevelt In
bringing this matter to th attention of
th country wa would not have had any
Mil at all. It I true that the Idea wa
not hla and tha demand for the legisla
tion wa made In three democratic plat
forms: nevertheless he seised upon the idea
and the success of the Issue la largely due
to hla advocacy. I can't congratulate him
on hi victory, for I think he should have
had a better bill."
The consideration of th bill was con
cluded with the reading of a brief state
ment from Senator Dubois, absent because
of Illness, to the effect that he desired to
be recorded aa favorable to Its paasag.
Interest ta Flaa! Tot.
After the laat of the general apeeches on

James Creelman In which Is given an Intel
view on railroad rates with President Cas

pany. Mr. Cassatt said:
I have for several year believed that the
national government, through the Inter
state Commerce commission, ought to be In
a position to fix railroad rates whenever
the rates established by the railroads them
selves sre found, sfter complaint and hear
ing, to be unreasonable; provided, of course,
that there shall be the right of appeal to
Experience has shown that closer rela
tionship and mutallty of Interests are nec
essary to prevent the covert and destruc
tive warfare- between American railroads
which produced the secret rate and rebate
It Is only right, therefore, that the pub
lic should have the means of protection
against even a remote danger suggested In
the Increased power developed by this
wholesome and from every sound stand
point necessary spirit of alliance.
lt the government regulate us. For my
part and for rev associates In the Pennsyl
vania Railroad company I am generally
heartllv In accord with the position taken
by President Roosevelt and we have been
all along. I told the president myself when
he made his first recommendation on this
subject to congress more then four years
ago that 1 believed him tn be In the right.
But It ia equally Important that the
American people should recognise the grave
necessity for greater harmony of action
and Interest between the railroads of this
richest and busiest country In the world.
We have trampled out the secret rate and
rebate system, which was not only ruining
the rallroeds, but also made equsl and
fair conditions of business impossible In
America. The secret rate system can never
e revived again unless the railroads are
prevented by unwise legislation from main
taining such relations among themselves
as wlU Insure the maintenance of reason
able and stable rates.
