OfH dispatches to-day tell of the liegin-

not to arrest anybody at their instiga
tion and all they can do is to threaten
the vengeance ol Stiieriiitciideut I'ortcr.
Of course that will amount to nothing.

at work. No complaints have as vet

crcd nt the convention of railway com
missioners held at Washington this week
A report on the subject was presented by
the committee on legislation which was
instructed to consider the matter nt the
last convention. The committee took
the simplest way nut of the difficulty by
recommending that the mam Icaturcs ol
the Interstate Commerce law lie mndc
part of the laws of the several Stales
and further, that laws lie enacted by
congress securing uniformity in the vuri
ous details of railroad equipment and
management, with a view to the grealc
safety and coinlorl of employes and the
public. The plan proKised in the remrt
seems to be the most natural and frusiblc
one that can be suggested, and to involve
also the least amount of derangement in
conditions. It may Ik difficult to secure
action of the kind promised in the imme

lie taken ultimately.
