All Inteicst was ccnteied in the house. Dhcctlj'aftei prajcr the dooiknepci announced the presence of the senate , consisting ot tlio nine teen republ'can membnis of that body. Kelllsun ( dnmociat ) arose , and called "Mr. Speakei. " but ho was not recogniml.

Other democratic nicmbcis claimed the speakei's attention , but were all letused rec ognition. At tlio close ot the reading ot the leturns , Jewell , ( demociat ) addressed the speaker , bill was told nothing would bo in order until the canvass was complete' .

We protest against this usuipitlon ot powni and oveiturning of precedent and law. " This was the signal for all thn democrats to bosin noisy demonstrations. The contusion was so meat that only Individual sneakers could bo he-aid eec islonnlly and then In n dis jointed manner , Hohertson held his position at Ihe desk and Kent UP n vliroions lapping with llio gavel.

Heck nt 2 o'clock concluded bis remarks on Iho inter-btatu commcico bill , nnd Mi. Ctillom took Iho lloor. lie said bo would conlino his attention at this time lo an explanation of thu fourth section , long and short hauls , in respect to which thcro seemed to bo much ndsuiulcistandlntr. This section , Mr. Cullom said , simply undertakes to laj down in bpeellie tcims n rule 01 niluelplo which , ns 1 lu\o alwavs contended , is already in eilect contained In nnothei piovislon ot the bill. The hist ic- qulromcnt of the bill on the subject of lates is touiid in the lirst .section and is that all rates shall be "reasonable and just. " . This Is In effect that undct similar cncunistnnces and conditions a gieatei sum shall not bo charged for shorter than for longei distance because under such ciicumslniices it would not bo "reasoiiablo and jusl" to make such charge" . The next iciiuiicmont ot the bill that allects the question Is found in the Jirsl pirtot the section , which forbids giving undno or iinuasouablo pn leience or ad vantage lo nny paiticular locality , This is likewison declaration that a greater sum shall not bo charged for n shorti'i than tor n longer haul undei bimllni ciicumslaiices and conditions , boc inso sueli clnrL'e would bo m.iking or giving ot "Undue or unreasona ble pieleiciiLo or advantgo" to one p irlien- lai locality ; or would subjecl some olliei lo cality to an ' Undue or unieasouablo pioju- dice or disadvantage. " ( The senatoi quoted the tourth section in full ) . As I undcistaiid it this section , as It now stands , simply pio- blhlts lallroad coipoiatlons irom chaiglng n grentei nggiegito siim not n hUher late lot a bhortei thin for a loinrer distance over the same Hue , in the same direction nnd un der substantially similai circiimslances and conditions , when Iho slioiter Is included in the longer distance. Theio is no other prohibition made in positive tcims. The ileclaiation that "this shall not be tonstiued ns aiithoii/ing nny common canior within Ibo terms of tills act to ch irge and leceivo as gieat a compensation toi a slioiter as for a longei distance , does not in ( onus prohibit the chaiglng as much foi shoitei as lor longer distance , but simply withholds legis lative sinction f loin the making ol such ehaigo. This iualllv | ing clause negatives Iho infeienceslhat might possiblj be diawu troin the language ot the section without those vvoids , namely , that ui oiiual chaise lor a bhoiter dlstniico Is aiithon/ed bv infeieiico necuiso enl > a gicater clnige is prohibited. This iiualihcation , theieloie , leaves Iho question - tion ol whether an equal amount can be clmiged foi a slioiter dis'ancc to bo detcimiiied by the piovislons ot the bill to which 1 have alieady lelerred requlilns all clnrgei to bo reasonable and toi bidding the giving ot umeasonablo prefer- ente or advantage to any paiticular locality. 'Iho leiiidrement of the fourth section then is that between shlpmi nts ol the same kind in the same dliection o\i'i the simo line and made under substantially similar ciicuni- stances and condition" , ereater hums hhall not ho charged lei n shorter than for a longer haul when the shortei comprises apait ol the longer h ml not that a highei late Mi ill not bo i barged DPI mile , but that a gieatei aggre gate sum shall not be ehaiged. The limita tions placed upon the prohibition tint Is made are vcrj' lignihi ant and should not bo overlooked. 'I hej lequlre thai in determin ing the sums that ma > bocliaiged fora shorter ascompaied with a loii'/er distance Iho re- quiiement must bo made : 1. Hetween ship ments "ot like kind of propertv ; " , ' . "Under bubstanllallv Mini- lar elicumstanccs and conditions ; " : ! , "Over the same lines ; " -1 , "In the same diiectlon ; " 5 , "When n shoitei Is included within a longer distance. " When tlio net is to be applied In any uivea ciso to Iho meas ure ehaigo that may be made lot an > distance ascomimiul with the longer distance , all limitations must bo taken into account and thej must all appl > to thocasu , not tluee ot four ot them , but all of them. The iiist , tourth and hftb of these limitations do not appear to tall tor nny limitations , but lint w cond nnd thlid need some explanation. As 1 understand them , the wouls 'ciicumsiaiiies nnd conditions" mean conditions that I govein railway Irattle nnd cliciimstanccs under vvldeb it Is truinportcd. To my mind tbeso words are lull ot moaning. They eomprehend all circumstances and condi tions which may lustily differences In rates , such as competition with othei loads and water routes , tno voliimn and character of business at dilleient points , the dllfeienco in terminal expenses and the cost of tenleo In each case. If the vvoids used vveio thn 'vamo circumstances nnd tomlitlous" the In cenloiis railway gentleman would bo able to show that circumstances nnd conditions were never oxacth the t > amo In an > two cases , \ml the > might also bo able to show that thej vvcru not similar if that was the word used , lint the vvoids "substantial ! } similar" Impait enough latitude to the compnilsoii lo enable the courts to exercise sound discre tion nnd common scnso In passing upon cases that maj arise , bo far as any ono rail road company Is conceined , Iheiufoie , the sum which It maj ehaigo for a haul Irom onu end ot its road to the oilier end pecomes thu maximum amount It can cnnige for nnj bhoitci haul over that road In the same dlnction nnd under substantially .similar circumstances and conditions when the shorter distance is included within the larger. Hut Iho quistion which seems lo trouble these who object to the section ns it btands Is whether thu maximum thus fixed Is the amount which the railroad company charges upon shipments onglnallngat and destluod to points unon Its own line , or whether the maximum Is the sum which It accepts as Its bhaio ot a through rate upon shipments passing o\ur ltd load which in- at or are destined to points upon another road. It seems clear to mo that iheio can bo but oue answer to that Question. In the first place , the measure of charge that may be iiitdo for the shorter distance Is the sum Ihal Is charged for the longer distance over the ame line and under substantially similar circumstances and conditions. 'Iho rates lixed bj the ralltond companies between points upon its own road are clearly rates upon 1i ono line , or. In the terms of tno bill , 1t "tho same line. A railroad company can make and control rates upon Its own road and ( l the section sajs that In demanding suc rates the short haul principle shall be ob served. A railroad company cannot carry | over roads of another company , but when two t 01 more companies unite. . In making Joint rates over their respective loads they iK'como In thn ejo ot this bill ono line ; and this section sajs that tlio shoit hull principle must bo observed In making rates over that line , the two or moro mads composing It being within the meaning of the section tlio same line , so tar as such joint rates are concei nod. The w ord "ralhoid" Is used Ihrou houi the bill and the won ! "line'1 is used only In this section. Tlio courts will be bound to assume that the word "lino" means somcthtngdllfcrcnlfiom "rail- load , " 01 It would not have been used In this one Instance , when thoword"rallioad" would natural ! } have been used If something dltfei- cnl bad not been intended , Mr ( ieorge objected to the Interpolation put upon the words "under like eiicumstan- ccs nnd conditions" bj Mi. ( nllom. lie did not believe thai II was a true nnd legitimate Interpretation , and protested against Its goIng - Ing through the semlo wlthnn nuthoiitativo exposition of the meaning of lliosn vvoids such as I'lven bv the senator from Illinois. Mi Cullom 'I ho senator from Mississippi lias the ilcht to put iinv construction ho thooscs on the words Tliev nieput Into the oilglnal bill by the senate l > ecauso the sentence without them was too rigid nnd It was feared ttiat It would Inlet fero wilh the m-ncral commeico of Iho country. They were put theio to mean something and they do mean something. Mr. btinloul aigucd agilnst the bill , lie said that It leiuled notoiilv to prevent com petition by raihoads but U had a tendency lo foster water wa > s to the piojudlco of railroad Interests.
