B11L ; ; For. the fourth time Senate ; Judiciary Committee - No.- 1, Senator C5ouncil chairman, ..heard argument,. over the surety bill of employes " of railroads. For the fourth" time arguments "were heard from ; the railroad attorneys, Messrs. Miller, Pou and Elliott in op position to some features of the. bill, and from Messrs. Cummings and Wil liams, representing the complaining employes. These gentlemen finally agreed that the bill which 'passed the House should be reported unfavorably, and in its place' they offered as a sub stitute the bill that passed the "Geor gia Legislature. : V After considerable discussion In" the committee and among the advocates of the bill and the railroad men, if was practically agreed to compromise all differences, and to Senator Daniel was left the incorporation of such amend ments as were agreed upon by alL Atlantic and Yadkin Investigation. The House joint resolution of Rep resentative Kellum, authorizing an' in vestigation of the sale and' partition of the old Cape Fear and Yadkin Val ley railroad, from Wilmington to Mt Airy, with a view to bringing suit to set the sale aside, came Up for consid eration. Messrs. Pou, Miller and El liott Jill spoke in opposition to the pro posed Investigation. ' They argued that they did not fear the fullest investiga tion, as everything relating to the sale was of : record, and . the act of . 1899', confirming it, was done in the open, without subterfuge or deceit " The road brought over $$.000,000 and the bidding was competitive. They' claimed that this matter was thor oughly threshed out two years, ago and after careful consideration by com mittees the resolution was rejected.. The continued agitation of the matter could only have the effect of injuring the securities and impairing the bond ed credit of the Coast Line and the Southern road. . They claimed that enough facts were known for the attorney-general to institute a suit now, without the tremendous expense of a commission, investigation. ; k j . . It looked as if the committee was going to Teport the bill unfavorably. But Senator Barnes suggested that it would be discourteous to say the least to kill it without hearing from Repre-j sentative Kellum and the friends of the measure. Senator Mason thougnt this only, right Next Friday afternoon at 3 : 30 o'clock, ' in the : Senate chamber, was fixed as the date for giving a final hearing and taking a vote on it ' . Pay Day Bill Killed. House ludiciary committee No. 1 yes terday killed for the second time Rep resentative Rector's bill; providing f ot more frequent j pay days by railroads and other corporations. The bill had been reported unfavorably, but at Mr. Rector's request it was re-called from the unfavorable calendar and consid ered the second time bythe committee.

Before the Senate Judiciary commit tee No. 2, yesterday afternoon, Senator -Gilliam, acting xhairman, the feature of the Lo-vingood.bill- requiring that mileage, be pulled on trains was re ported unfavorably without objection. it was .tne evident purpose of the committee to report unfavorably other sections of the bill requiring thai mileage for 1,000 miles' be issued, good for families. . " ' - '' " Senator Lovingood stated he would not champion his proposition. . That he introduced the bill by request but now ; feels satisfied that - the Dresent status was . wisest Although there were several attorneys of railroa present and many conductors and traveling men to dDobse' the bilL it was the apparent sense of the commit- . tee, that it had as well report ft un favorably. But Senator Evans, of Pitt opposed taking this step now. iHe said the House was now considering a sim lar bill, and it would . be best to at least wait until it was found what ac tion the House would take before dis posing of the matter in the Senate committee.1' Finally it was agreed to defer voting on the bill until the House acted . f; --:;'.;' : , ' i'-: ( . Opponents of the bill, were heard. These consisted of Mr. Elliott of the Coast Line;Mr. Pou, of the Seaboard Air Line, and Mr. Miller, of the South ern.? They all briefly outlined the ob jections, declaring that lit. 'practically would -reduce passenger . rates to two. cents a mile by increasing the number of people' getting low mileage' book rates. That the present arrangements was 2 1-4 cents a mile, counting excur- . sion and block ticket rates,: That the law could not stand .any further vindi- i. cation 'of passenger rates. - , Next appeared before this committee a delegation' xf traveling t men," Mr. Simms, of Raleigh, and Mr. Clenx "Wil der, of Raleigh,, of the T.

They, hoped , the present, status would not be disturbed. Then followed a talk from Captata James Gerard. 'of Raleigh, conductor on" the Norfolk 5 Southern, ' and Presi dent of the Raleigh Conductors Asso ciation. tv He said he represented C9 conductors in North Carolina.; whea he stated that the adoption of the pro posed bill would' work a great hard-, ship on the conductors as well as -the roads. ; He explained the impossibility of identifying 8 or 10 members of a family on a train, and of Dreyentinr imposition.
