Washington, D. C The administra tion's railroad bill Is now a law, hav ing passed both house and senate and been signed by the president The bill Is substantially in accordance with the president's message demanding amendments to the interstate com merce laws. About the only excep tions are that It does not legalize hold ing agreements made by railroads, or permit the regulation of the issuance of -stocks and bonds. ' It creates a com- merce court and broadens the scope of the jurisdiction of tho Interstate com merce commission regarding ' rail roads. Statehood BUI Passes. The house concurred In the senate amendments to the statehood bill and passed the measure without sending it into conference. , It cannot be stated definitely when Arizona -and New Mexico will come into the Union, as the constitutions adopted' by the proposed states must be ratified by congress and approved by the president It will be necessary for the territories to hold constitu tional' conventions, which will require many weeks, submit the constitution to the people of the territories for adoption, and then return them to Washington.
