WEAK CASE OF THE RAILROADS
M e a s u re Passed by Last House W as
Intended to C o rre c t F r r o r
In F o rm e r Law .
Washington, Oct. 7.— Representative
Townsend, of Michigan, joint author of
the Esch-Townsend railroad rate bill
that passed the house of representatives
last winter, and alio will reintroduce
substantially the same bill and lead the
fight for its passage at the coming ses­
sion, after a conference with the presi­
dent today said:
“ One of the first subjects, if not the
first, which the president will discuss
in his annual message will be railroad
freight rates.”
Mr. Townsend says he will not make
any material change in his bill, and it
is his understanding that the president
approves itB general features and would
be satisfied if it should become law.
“ We had but one idea in framing
that bill,” said Mr. Townsend, “ and
that was to correct an omission in t~e
original law for regulation of railroads.
According to the law, the commission
could not make an order which would
remedy an evil condition or any unjust
condition that was found to exist.
It
actually exercised that power for a
number of years, but it was finally
determined that it did not have the
power. It was to give the commission
that power that the house of represent­
atives passed its bill last winter.
The
rest of the bill merely furnished ma­
chinery for expediting hearings and for
, carrying out the essential provisions of
the bill, which was to fix a reasonable
rate when a rate was found to be un­
reasonable. No statement that I have
seen in opposition to this legislation
since congress adjourned has modified
my view as to the wisdom of adopting
this course.”

At the close of the eleventh week of
the struggle against yellow fever, the
health authorities summed up the sit­
uation tonight as full of encourage­
ment. Today’ s new cases in the city
were all in the old zone of infection j
and most of them are of an extremely
mild type.
Sentiment in favor of some character
of national quarantine is apparently
growing here and elsewhere in the
state.
Arrangements for the president’ s re­
ception and entertainment are progress­
ing, and every effort is to be made
while he is here to convince him that |
in New Orleans fear of the fever has
entirely passed. The route of the pro­
cession to the city hall will carry him
past the Lee monument, op the im­
mense circular mound on which there
will be gathered several thousand
school children armed with American
flags to give a patriotic greeting. The
streets through which the president is
to be escorted are to be decorated on a
lavish scale.
