senate, the Panama tolls exemption
bill returned to the house today for
act Ion on the Norris-Simmons com
promise amendment before going to
President Wilson for signature.
Chairman Williams of the com
merce committee, in charge of the
bill, at once moved that the house
concur with the amendments instead
of sending If to conference.
"Tho senate amendment," he said,
"should lie acceptable to all advocates
of uniform itolls. It Is exceedingly
