were brought to bear on President Taft
that those at the meeting found tiiem-^
selves without- a well defined subject

Some expressed the opinion that the
president had been misled by state
ments of shippers, while others were
inclined to seek a probable motive be
hind tiie St. -Louis injunction. A direct
expression from the White House .will
be sought, it is said, by a visit to Pres
ident, Taft by heads of Important rail
road companies.
Injunction to Be Attacked
ST. LOUIS, June 2. — The 25 western
railroads j temporarily restrained from
advanclng^freight rates in the ierritory
of the western trunk line committee
will ask for the dissolution of the in
junction after a conference iriT"Chicago
next Monday.. ;.
'.Martin L; ciardy," vice president and
general solicitor of the Missouri Pacific,
said that he expected the conference to
be attended by representatives of all the
railroads affected. \u25a0 \u25a0
He was -unable to forecast the
grounds upon which the dissolution of
the Injunction will be sought, except
that a general denial of the main
charges of the petition., upon which
Judge Dyer acted Tuesday will be'made.
Other Points Affected
DES MOINES, la., June 2. — The,
lowa railroad commission today noti
fied Attorney General Wickersham that
the injunction secured by the govern
ment enjoining the putting into effect
of the new shipping rates does not ap
ply to. intermediate points In lowa, but
only to Missouri river points. ,The at
tention of the -railroad commission' was
called to the fact that intermediate
points are paying • the \u25a0 increased rate
and ;the commission has asked Attorney
General Wickersliani to file a supple
mentary complaint.
Senate Bill Near Passage
WASHINGTON, June 2. — But for the
fact that Senator : Overman of f North
Carolina succeeded in having the sen
ate. Incorporate in the railroad bill a
provision regulating injunction pro
ceedings affecting state laws the sen
ate probably would have voted on the
railroad bill today.
The 'acceptance of that, provision had
the effect of inclining some democratic
senators more favorably to the bill and
pt causing the democratic side of the
chamber to -request opportunity for
consultation * before reaching the vot
ing stage on the final passage. Ac
cordingly,..the vote was postponed to
permit a democratic conference, which
will' be held at 11 q'clock tomorrow.
After ? this agreement was .reached
Elkins- and Hale made an effort to get
the. senate to agree to vote on: the bill
before adjournment;- tomorrow, but
without success. \u0084 . l -
Bacon and Bailey objected to a cut
ting off of debate, in advance of the
final vote, and when , it appeared as if
they might, be conciliated Clapp en
tered objection to any arrangement
The .bill was before- tiie senate dur
ing the entire day and a large number
of amendments were presented and
disposed of. : \u25a0
Just before adjournment Elkins gave
notice that at the proper time he would
ask the senate to substitute the senate
billfor the house bill.;
He succeeded in. having adopted an
amendment postponing for 60 \J days
after its passage the time when : - the
proposed law shall go into effect. The
suggestion was. not. received, with gen
eral favor and on a roll* call- vote re
ceived a majority of only seven, the
vote standing 32 to 25. y: .. - :
* The Overman provision, covers a sub
ject broader than; transportation. \u25a0 It
provides that no' interlocutory 'injunc

unconstitutionality unless ; the applica
