TO BE PRESENTED
Washingotn, .lan. 19.—The republi
can members of the house committee
on interstate and foreign oommerce, in
a oonferenoe have agreed to support
the Hepburn railroad rate bill .with n
few modifications, which were agreed
on and which relate chiefly to court
procedure. There modifications were
taken from the provisions of the Esoh-
Townnsend bill, are in the nature of a
compromise with the supporters of that
measure. The committee will report
the bill to the house. Representative
Townsend of Michigan, author of the
Townsend bill, which was consolidated
with the Esoh bill and passed at the

ments except on the first day of the de
bate. The democrats, however, are to
be permittei to offer a substitute on
which they can go on record. This
course, it is pointed uut, is the same as
was followed with the Ecsh-Townseud
bill, when the democrats submitted the
Davey Dill. The rebpulican members
of the committee express the opiuoin
that the debate in the house probably
will continue not over a week.
