notable that tho smaller cities as a
group seemed to have maintained dur
ing tho decade of 1900 to 1910 a rate
of growth considerably above that main
tained by the larger cities, the rate for
tlic aggregate population of the smaller
citiesboing 39.3 per ccut and that for
tho larger 30.1.
"The returns for all of the cities
which in 1900 were in the .100.000 class
have been received except from Los
Angeles and Sun Francisco and Min
neapolis and Memphis. Seattle, Wash.,
which will go into the 100,000 class, had
not reached that figuro ten years ago."

NEW YORK, Oct, 25. A conference of
railroad attorneys hold here today was
called, It was stated tonight, to find
out what the Mann-Elklns amendment
to the Interstate commerce commission
law really means when Interpreted In
all lt3 legal phases. There seemed to be
no objection against the newly estab
lished court of commerce, but therd'was
strong opposition to the extension of tho
powers of the Interstate commerce com
mission as provided by tho act.
A previous conference at. Portsmouth
did not reach any decision, though much
of the preliminary work was done there
and the ground for future deliberations
was considerably narrowed. Today's
session completed all the remaining prep
arations and the discussion will now
reach to vital questions, suggested by the
committee appointed for this purpose at
the first meeting.
The questions of constitutional liw
arising under the Mann-Elklns act that
will be discussed at the meetlngc which
now will be held dally until Friday, fol
' Question 1. Are the following pro
visions of the amended Interstate com
merce act constitutional?
a That portion' of section 15 which
confers power upon tho commission to

b That portion of section 15 which re
serves to the shipper the right to route
freight when taken in connection with
the Carmack amendment to section 20.
c Long and short haul and aggregate
of Intermediate rate clauses as contained
in section 4. r
d The water provision of section 15
with respect to the establishment of
through rates and joint classifications
and joint rales by the commission.
f The provision of section 15 Impos
ing the burden of proof upon the car
rier a3 to the reasonableness or Justice
of increased rates.
Question 2. Is It wise to institute pro
ceedings at an early date to test the con
stitutionality of any or all of these pro
visions, and if so, what is the most de
sirable form of procedure?
