(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Sept. 22. (Special Tel
egram. V The house committee on Inter
state and foreign commerce will, through
one of Its subcommittees, hear argument?
on Thursday In support, of the Cumins
bill, which passed the senate some time
ago. ' ' '
The Cumins bill prohibits tho railroad
companies from limiting their liability for
loss or damage to live stock occasioned
by their own negligence while such ship
ment are In transit. Since the decision
of the t'nlted States supreme court last
January. In which the court upheld what
Is known as the Carmack amendment,
the railroads appear to have settled losses
only on the bas's which they write into
the contract.
Pit l.lllU for Loatei.
They hold the limit for a steer down to
.)0 and a hog to The ('ihiiIiib bill
proposes to make them I'ahle for the
actual value of stock lost and not to per
mit them to settle on an arbitrary basis
fixed by' themselves. This question is one
of the utmost Importance to all the stock-
raising country, and particularly to the
corn-raising belt where so many animals
are finished for market.
Among the gentlemen who will appear
before the committee ure A. F. Ktryker.
South Omaha, representing the South
Omaha Live Stock exchange; Clifford
Thorne, representing the Iowa Railway
commission;; Judge J. H. Henderson, com
merce counsel for the state of lows; A.

Corn Belt Meat Producers' association;
J. Walter Farrar, representing the Kan
sas City Uve Stock exchange, and many
shippers of the aoi'tli eel and S. H.
Cowan of Texas, the general counsel for
the American Live Stock association and
the Cattle Raisers' Association of.Yexaa.
Discrimination Alleged.
The Injustice of the railroads' position
is pointed mt In that It has shown the
largo shippers like, I he American Cattle
company Invariably s leeeed in obtaining
full coiitpeiisat (on for Ins. sustained, he

War Summary
Another day has gone and
neither one eide nor the other,
Germany nor allien, lays rlalm to
any decisive outcome in the bat
tle of the Alsne, where the su
preme conflict of the war, up to
the present time, has long been
The engagement seem to be
partaking of the nature of a aiege.
Both aides continue to hold most
of their strongly entrenched po
sitions. The German lines for
100 miles are described as vir
tually a continuation of forts and
heavy entrenchments. The artil
lery fire goea on day and night
and under its cover are sorties of
infantry. Counter attack follows
attack and occasionally one aide
or the other gains ground.
It would appear that noth
ing but a successful flanking
movement could have any auceess
on either army. But neither front
has been broken and neither aide
has been outflanked.
Rhelms appears to be the cen
ter of the most persistent fight
ing. It Is between the lines of
battle and the city has suffered
heavily. The Germans are said
to be most anxious to recapture
tblH position.
The French official announce
ment at Paris yesteTday after
noon says that incessant German
attacks delivered yesterday, Sep
tember 2t, have been unsuccess
ful and that the Germans have
been compelled to retire at more
than one point. The French took
many prisoners.
The latest official communica
tion from Berlin, Issued Monday
night, says the Germans have cap
tured the hill positions at Cra

Bethany, three miles north of
