Omaha lie, 1311 Stmt.
Washington, Feb. 7. (Special Tel
egram.) Charles W. Bryan arrived
in Washington today from the south
accompanied by his brother, Colonel
W. J. Bryan, who has been making
sneeches in Tennessee and North
Carolina. The commoner did not
tarry in the capital, but kept on to J
fill "a speaking engagement in the
north. Brother Charles, who has
business with the Interior depart
inert, will remain in Washington until
tomorrow when lie will leave for Lin
When asked about the senatorial
situation in Nebraska, Mr. Bryan said
he had not heard any Macedonian cry
for any democrat to break into the
g-jme, but supposed there would be
quite a number of patriots to seek
the democratic nomination when the
time for filing came around.
Asked if he contemplated being a
candidate for governor Mr. Bryan
said, "You may say that while I have
rot announced my candidacy for gov
ernor it is possible 1 will file when
the time conies."
Mr. Bryan was a guest of Repre
sentative Stephens at luncheon today.
Stephens' Minority Report.
Representative Stephens, a member
of the interstate and foreign com
merce committee of the house, is
contemplating filing a minority re
port on the railroad bill, should he
fail to file such a report, then he
will offer an amendment to the bill
when it comes before the house re
storing the 14th section of the bill,
i, )i'trU toiva itin (tm,. tli. crivprnment
shall turn over the railroads to their
private owners indefinite. The com
mittee by a vote of 5 to 8 started to
put a time limit of two years which
the government should take to turn
back the roads after peace is de
clared. t ,
Conflict Over Rate Jurisdiction.
The railroad bill has been so
shaped that the senate interstate
commerce committee preserves the
power of the Interstate Commerce
commission, while the house inter
state commerce committee destroys
it. The house committee makes Ihc
president supreme over rates and
the senate committee make3 the com
mission supreme over them. Wide
spread interest in this question of
jurisdiction ovef rates is shown by
shippers Ind the railroads. The ship
pers continue-to insist that the com
mission be made supreme over rates.
The railroad bill will soon be up for
consideration in . both houses, and
there is sure to be hot controversy.
Apropos of the government's opera
tion of the railroads, Charles W.
Bryan said today that in hid trip from
the south to Washington Jie had every
reason- to believe that railway em
ployes were endeavoring to discredit
government control, as the s-ervice on
the roads was execrable and the de

discharged from the army recently
on his mother's earnest appeal. On
his discharge he was left stranded
at Camp Greene, N. C. but through
friends he was enabled to' reach
