Washington, May 19.~Wha* 'the railroad rate bill reaches the house from the senate, which probably will be Monday, Chairman Hepburn will igake a request that it lie on the leaker's table, pending a conference hbtween the republican and the dem ocratic members of the committee on interstate and foreign commerce, ,*Hilch is to be called as soon as the pWnt of bill, with the senate amcnd ments included, is available.

Only eight members of the numer ous deputation were allowed to speak and in accordance with previous ar rangement each speaker was limited to five minutes. But in the aggregate of forty minutes the premier heard about all there .was to hear in favor of female suffrage. The immediate grant of women's rights was the unanimous "demand of the speakers, some of whom presented to the premier their "minimum de? mands," claljning that immediate leg islation bestowing on the women the right to vote was necessary and de claring that the promise to take the matter up at the next session of par liament would not satisfy them. One speaker meancingly declared that the women were prepared to sac rifice their lives in behalf of their de mands. The premier smiled upon this strangely assorted gathering of wo men, including as it did, ladies of title side by side with factory employes, and said he sympathized with the ob ject of the deputation but asked his visitors to be patient until the gov ernment became more united in favor $f the extension of franchise to wo men. The cause, he added, had made ehormous strides of late years. Per sonally he believed that women were as well qualified as men and perhaps better to exercise their right to vote and in his opinion the deputation had made out a conclusive and irrefut able case. The premier wound up his remarks with saying that he believ ed it would not be many years before the desired change was brought about. This reference to "years" was met with hissing from members of the deputation, who left the foreign office greatly dissatisfied. Sfe. Milwaukee.
