SECTION SEVEN CAUSES MOST OF THE TROUBLE WASHINGTON. May 3. Section 7 of the railroad bill, which caused all the trouble, never wns perfected In the sen ate. Tho Cummins and the Elklns-Craw-ford provisions were offered as complete substitutes for the section. Tho Cum mins provision would have legalised traf fic agreements, but would have compelled tho railroads lo procure tho approval of Iho Interstate commerce commission be foro making changes of rates.

Tho Insurgents clalmod that this pro vision would repeal the Sherman anti trust law so far as It applied to rail roads and would put an end tp competi tion as to rates. Both factions contended that their amendments were In compliance with tho Republican national platform, which de clared that tho Interstate commerce laws should be amended so as to permit rail roads to make agrcomcnts as to rates, subject to approval of the commission.

They appeared hopeful of suc cess ami indicated their preference for the regulation of traffic agreements by such a provision. Discussing the pro gramme of the regulars, Mr. Dolllvor said: "It Is like driving off tho roof the man who Is patching It In order to burn tho house. Wo would prefer to go on and perfect the bill. Wo arc certainly getting on. Our war Itatus is recognized. Wo are to be dealt with, and our right, to make treaties and to onter into alliances la established."

St. Mary's Academy Among the time-honored customs ob served yearly at St Marys there Is hardly any other fraught with ma lender associations ns the dairy W devotions during this .sweetest month or the year, for It Is at this t mo il""" Children of .Mary, the principal re- loiis organization among the Cntliollo. fatudc-nCH. unite to pay a public tribute of filial ro spect and love to their heavenly patron ess, the Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of Die God-Man. Jesus Christ. It was v-lth Joyous nhicilty. then, that the members or this sodality gathered around Iho altar of tholr fiueon on the eve of May and by tho voice of tho president of the so ciety, Mies Adelaide Sun. consecrated the month of May to her honor and Invoked her powerful protection now and especial ly In their later years. Th Is Prayerful sentiment wns the burden also of their beautiful hymn, on tho same evening, "Come. Gather Round the Altar; to Mary Each Heart Offor." The benediction of the blessed sacrament was given by t"o reverend chaplain In the morning for the samo Intention. The devotions, con sisting of a hymn and the reading of the act of consecration, take place evory dn during the month at r. o'clock in the af ternoon and culminates on the final dn with a more elaborate ceromony Known as tho coronation of the Blessed lr gln. There was a happy reunion of the class of 100C at the academy Sunday after noon, when Miss Mary Desmond, tho president of that class, gathered nor t:lassrnatea, the Misses Florence O Nell and Catherine McDonough, back to the homo of tholr school days to renew their acquaintance with tho friends and scenes or other days. Interesting accounts of the intervening years wore heard from each, and yet it scemod so natural to see tho three girls together that those years of absence appeared lo be a" a. dream. This lu perhaps the first Instance of a complete class reunion among tne alumnae and should go on tho records or tho society as a happy precedent. Tho speech given by Miss Menu Reno, at the studont" reunion yosterday morn ing was appreciated generally as jiilln the best that has yl boon heard on these programmes. Taking for her keynote that loyalty which must Inspire and Inform this movement for self-government now on In tho school, sho Instanced tho late contest In which SL Mary's was repre sented amonc: the other schools of the state as a proof that there Is a goodly amount of that fine quality among tho pupils on which to count for splendid results. Sho urged an Immediate nnd zestful following up of the Impetus aroused on this occasion for tho purpose of pursuing the advantages held out ny this annual contest, and. all In all. pre sented a very effective discussion of the subject. The Misses Nelly Smith and Adelaide Sun then gave the "Qunrtot Scene Be tween Brutua and Casslus," Miss Sun prefacing tho dlaloguo with a brief re sumo of the slory of the play "Jul uu Caesar," the principal scenes of which have at Intervals been 'given nt theso Monday programmes by members of tho elocution class. The April reports of averages of tho weekly notes In lessons, conduct, etc.. wero road out Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, making the exercises unusually long. Tho Hpccch and readings also be ing of more than ordinary length, there was Insufficient time left for the meeting designed to bo held at thai time by the class presidents for tho purpose of reach ing some practical decisions with regard to studont government. The main point agreed upon, however, was that for the present tho meetings of the class presi dents should be attended by the vlco presidents and secretaries, thus securing a more gcnoral representation of the students In these particular assemblages. The expcrlmont which Is to bo made In al lowing the students a share In tho dis ciplinary sphoro, namely that of barring the unworthy from a place on tho weekly roll of honor, Is to begin operation this week. It Is thought that this Initiatory step will prove effectual in drawing a more careful and studious attention to the points Included In tho standard of do portmcnt Implied in the roll of honor and Induce a more conscientious regard for Its administration. The first and second academics took their first spring outing Sunday after noon, spending tlie hours with pleasure and untold profit to both mind and body in the school of nature as represented by Liberty park. Tho signs of the times In connection with out-of-door school work are all In favor of that Idea, especially during these delightful days of spring. STEAMERS IN COLLISION.
