for statehood legiiilation. the postal, sav
ings bank bill, the anti-injunction bill, and
«©m« -form v- c»»«ervati«i bill are as un
promising as those for the interstate com
merce bill. Without working majorities in
either house, the administration can hardly
secure action on any of these measures un
accompanied by the adoption of amend
ments which will Insure their defeat in
one house or the other, or even compel the
President to veto them. Precisely as noth
ing succeeds like success, so nothing i*
more contagious than failure, and the lead
ers have no heart to attempt to drive
through legislation in the face of an op
position composed of Insurgents and Dem
ocrat*, and sufficiently powerful to out
vote the regulars. An analysis of the vote
by which the Cummins amendment was
defeated last Friday shows that actually
the Senate was tied on the- proposition.
There were four Senators, all of whom
would have voted for th© amendment, ab
sent without pairs, and two Senators,
Messrs. Flint and Culberson, were recorded
as paired, when both would have voted for
the amendment had they "been present.

assisted by Senators Lodge and Carter. In
the course of the two hours debate some
grotesque effigies which have found a

as the Patent Office, Senator Carter
tried to Emend the bill by providing that no

When the provision authorizing traffic
agreements between railroads was taken
up In the House Mr. Tc".vnsena, of Mich

that In case any such agreement should
result in higher rates than previously
charged the Interstate- Commerce Com
mission should approve ths rates before
they became effective. Mr. Martin, of
South Dakota, offered a substitute pro
viding that the rates made in traffic
agreements should he approved by the
commission before becoming effective in
ail instances.
Mr. Mann opposed both amendments.
He declared the traffic agreement clause
as reported contained all the safeguards
for the supervision of rates by the com
mission that were proposed in the
amendments. Both political parties, he
declared, had approved this proposition
for traffic agreements.
By a vote of S3 to 59 Mr. Martin's

the titular head. As there appears to be a
