The bill was Introduced by Repre
sentative Townsend of Michigan Jnn

drafted by Attorney General Wlckor
sham who also is sponsor for soy
eral of the amendments made by the
committee but the measure contains
as amendments liberal excerpts from
the bill presented eary In the ses
sion by Chairman Mann of the com
mittee whose views rfro not In ac
cordance with the administration but

floor as committee chairman jLhojigh
personally opposed to many of Its
Mr Mann will ask thp house next
Monday to miTtfc ililHim privileged
falling which he will seek suspension
of the rules to expedite consideration
Tho majority report says
The Hepburn law of 1005 vastly I
Improved the law providing for reg i
ulative control railroad corporations
engaged In interstate or foreign com
merce and much enlarged the scopo
of the authority conferred upon the
Interstate commerce commission Ex
perience gained through execution ot
the law shows that soma important
matters which should lm the subject
of government control are not now
within the scope of authority hereto
fore conferred on the commission
The original act to regulate com
merce was exceedingly Important
tho Hepburn law was of still greater
Importance but the propositions Involved
volved In the substitute bill report
ed by your committee arc of oven
greater Importance While they do
not impose undue burdens upon the
railways of the country or unduly in
terfere with tho power of the ran
way managers for the proper opera
lion of the roads yet they do confer
upon tho shipping public the Invest
ing public and the people at largo
benefits of tremendous value
Referring to tho commerce court
covered In the first three sections of
tho bill the report says It Is pro
Posed to centralize tho existing au
thority and jurlsdlctian of circuit
courts In one commerce court but
without enlarging such Jurisdiction or
authority The present Jurisdiction
of the United States courts to set
a lde the interstate commerce com
mission orders is believed by many
to he limited to the determination of
jurisdictional facts and to the ques
tion of confiscation by the taking or
property without due compensation
An inhibition against purchase or
OUBO or capital stork of a directly or
substantial competitive railroad or
water lino is mado in section 12
which also prohibits the same per
ton serving on competing directorates
It permits any corporation design
ing to acquire Interest In another
similar corporation to make a prelim
inary agreement and then to file a
Petition with tho commerce court for
mission to carry out tho agree
ment The committee however lg
considering reporting a committee
amendment to have the petition filed
with the commission Instead of with
the commerce court
Railway securities propositions are
enbodied In the concluding sections
They prohibit railroads from Issuing
any stock or bonds except upon appli
cation to the commission which Is to
tpcclfy the respective amounts of
stcoks bonds etc authorised to he
biucd for tho respective purposes o
which tho proceeds arc to be applied
iiid stating the prIcetheir reason
able nlueat which such stctirltlcs
may bo sold The commission Is au
thorised to Issue certificates In rela
tion to slocks und bonds and to pen
alize officers or stockholders who as
sent to prohibited issues I
Common carriers are authorized lo
enter Into agreements opeclfylnB
freight classification t and passenger
end freight transportation charges
notwithstanding existing laws Includ
ing the Shorman antitrust law If a
copy of the agreement form and du
tall proscribed by the comml bloii Is I
flied with that body within 20 days
alter it Is mado and at least thirty
days before the classification or I
choices go into effect The com
mission however Is vested with full
authority in the matter and may BUS
pond their taking effect
The moiuhors arc expressly prohibit
ed from making any agreement of

Is embraced In tho bill prohibiting
a greater rate lor a shorter than a
longer distance over the flume lino
In tho same direction the shorter be
ing within the longer or from receiv
ing a greater compensation as a
I through rate than the aggregate of
the local rates though special excep
tions arc authorized
Other sections of tho bills enlarge

busIness to call for reasonable facil I
ities ind to bare representation In

All of the nlnorlty members of the I
committee In a separate report op
pose the commerce court tho change
in tho law requiring notice and hear
ings on restraining Orders and the
provision legalizing agreements I
among carriers If filed even if not
approved l > y the interstate commerce
commission Further they think the
commerce court should not be author
ized to legalize consolidation by per
mitting the acquisition of ono com
poling line by another
They condemn tho manner In
which tho bill was introduced The
executive department having drawn
bills and then selected sponsors to In
troduce thorn In each house
They object to tho repeal of the
proviso In the act to regulate com
merce which forbids tho application
of the act to Interstate transporta
With the exception of Mr Sims and
Mr Russell the minority condemn
the provisions as to competing lines
and stocks and bonds as an unwar
ranted Interference with local author I
ity and as calculated to operate In
favor of established lines discourag I
