reason Is that the merchant, lu his anxiety to

ston was devoted to tho reading of tho ad
dress of tho chairman by Juugo Coolcy.
Tho paper was a very exhaustive one,
covering bomo twenty pages of printed
mutter, its purposo being, tlio chairman
said, to indicate what tlio railroad problem
is, and not to attempt any solution. Ills
address closely adhered to this promise
and was a thorough exposition of all tho

arose to address Iho convention and was
about to tell how' ho had been waiting for

Shortly nftcr 18 o'clock Interstate Com
mcrco Commissioner Schoonmakcr read
an intorcitlng paper upon 'Discrimina
tions from iho Use of Private, Cars of
Shippers." ludgo Schoonmakcr concluded
his address with tho following romnrk:
"If a radical change, forbidding tho mo
of private cars for shippers and requir
ing carriers to furnish all cars' them
selves, is Impracticable, and, If the prac
tice of using cars of shippers and paying
for their iiho Is to continue, a feasible
plan would beem to bo that the payments
in no caso should exceed what tho ox
pensu w ould he to Iho carrier If it owned

preciation, and a right on thu part of tho
carrier lo use tho cars for other shippers
when their owners do not furnish load

for tho use of such cars should bo tiled
with tho lutcrstato Commerce Commis

Tho President said to a caller yesterday
that tho report in the morning iaiers

man that lie had no idea that tin extra
session of Congress would bo rendered
necessary. As to the talked of special ses
blon of tho Senate, tlio President said he
had no intention of calling one. There
was, ho said, nothing In tho present out
look of public business which would re
quire it. Of course, ho added, something
of sulllelcut Importance to ucccssltato
one might uiU!icctcdiy como up, but so
far as ho could sco there would be no
special session of tho Senate.
The President then told his caller he
