Washington, June 24. The apparent
hopelessness of modifying the Clay?
ton anti-trust bill to meet the views of
the Senate without making it over en?
tirely led to the renort to-night that
the administration will probably find
i? necessary to rearrange its anti-trust
programme before the wishes of the
President can be carried out.
| Democratic Senators admitted to?
day that so many (laws had boon found
in the Clayton bill, which was passed
by the House, tha*. after extended
non-partisan discussion there is not
i much of the original fabric left. After
j delibera'ing for more than a week the
Senate Judiciary Committee has made

the provisions of the House measure.
( The conclusion has generally been

Democratic leaders frankly admitted
to-day the possibility of renewing the
effort to reach a.? agreement ta

The bill relating to stock and bond
issue- is also in unsatisfactory shape,
and there is likely to be further con?
troversy over the division of jurisdic?

situation many Senators take the view
