Announcement Mad*.
This announcement nai made In

The announcement was greeted by
the Insurgents a« an offer of com
promise by the regulars, but it Is
believed that the ln.«iirgrnl* will still
I fight the other provisions rf tht
bill which are distasteful to them.
It n on the railroad l*£ulallpn

In the recent rules committee fight.
This victory. It Is declared, will

The progrefslves uill tM able to go
