the passage of the railroad riae bill
as it. came from the House. Tha.e let

S. H. Cowan. at (ornev rh Ill.

roads have in the past six years il
creased rates ou cattle shipments to
the extent of $18 a car, causing a
total outlay of $10,000,000 abovo the
amount that it would have been nec
cessary to pay uider the old prices.
The petition urged the Senate to re
sist efforts to seriously amend the bill
as mere subteftuges on part of op

The following bills were passetd:

satisfied that the Knox. the Tillman
and Culber!son bills had all beer.
