House leaders make n. secret of the
fact that tbey are much perturbed at
the ftilure of the offer to push the nresi

Court section was te'a'ned io the bill
biat they feel tbat the amendment adopt
ed yeaterday includ ng the telegraph
and telephone companies in the uieaaure
as common carriers may prevent an
agreement between the House for many

with some concern as they connted on
