A controversy over railroad legisla tion which for Interest and Impor tance promises to surpass the legisla tive conflict over railroad rates four years bko will be precipitated In Con gress thin winter. The first gun was Bred by Senator Cummins of Iowa when ho Introduced a bill proposing radical changes In the Interstate com merce act. In brief, the Cummins bill requires the Interstato Commerce Commission to promulgate a uniform classification of freight and to prepare a plan for the statement of rates, which there after would bo made In n uniform way. The carriers are required to adopt this classification. , The cnmmlMslon Is to be authorized to consider rates on its own motion, with a view to determin ing their reasonableness, and Is em powered to fix maximum and mini mum rates. In an action In court to set aside an ordor of the commission respecting rates, the courts would be prevented from Inquiring Into the reasonableness or sufficiency of any rate fixed by tho commission. The bill also provides that changes shall not become effective before they are approved by the commission. It prohibits acquisition of control of par allel and competing lines by any com mon carrier, or acquiring of capital stock or bonds of any other carrier that is a competitor. A carrier Is prohibited from issuing capital stock without payment at par either In money or in property, and, in effect, the commission shall have supervision of issues of stocks and bonds by any carrier. Speclflp direc tions are set forth for the disposition of the proceeds of any sale of boifds. After Jan. 1, 1911, no railway doing Interstate buslnebs shall be permitted to engage In other business than thiit of a common carrier.

NEGRO SOLDIERS HIT. tfew Evidence Said to Fix Guilt Coc clusively in Brownsville Case. That the "shooting up" of Browns ville, Texas, was done by members of the Twenty-fifth Infantry, colored, who were in the fort at the time their companions were running through the streets of the town, firing right and left, is said to be proved conclusively by evidence now in possession of the military court of inquiry Into that fa mous case.

Thus the bitter debate that marked the final days of the Roosevelt administration threatens to be renewed. The evidence discovered by the officers who compose the court is said to be susceptible of complete proof. Certain members, it is report ed, made personal examination of buildings across the road from the fort in Brownsville. They discovered bullet holes in the sides of three houses. Continuing their investiga tions, they discovered the bullets, which were of the regulation army design.
