A compromise is barely possible, but the impression prevails that the whole matter will go over to another session.

SKNAT*—The interstate commerce (Oullom) rbill WM conaidoredaud finally passed—43 to 12. As passed by tha senate the bill is subatan itially as prepared by Senator Cullom, and goes back to the house as an amendment to the Reagan bill. The chances, of an agreement between the two houses aro not by any means encouraging. Tlio lloagan bill was passed by more than a two-thirds vote, but many members voted for it beuauMo tliey preferred to take that to getting nothing. The principal point of difference betweon the two moasurea is that the senate bill provides for nine commissioners, to whom is given full power to regulate all matters provided for, while the lleagan bill refers all contro pointa to potcs heavy penalties for the violation of its provisions.

VI.-NO. 36. MARSHALL KeOLVBE. J. O. WABNOOK. Proprietor Ed.tor TUB secret of the opposition in Valley City to councilman ltichardson's school district funding bill is said to be that the effect of the law will be to obviate a great deal of litigation, in which lawyers' fees are at stake, by the people of the several districts adjusting their business compli cations themselves instead of through a court of law and equity. If this be true, and the occupation of the leading kickers taken in connection with the fact that the law does not affect the Valley City district, gives it a strong coloring of truth, the bill is self evidently a good one for the poople. The lawyers at Val ley City are hitman, and to err is human, too. WHEN the electoral vote was counted in the presence of the joint assembly of the senate of the United States and House of Representatives, Senator Edmunds, president of the senate, who presided, an­ nounced that Cleveland and Hendticks received 219 votes and Blaine a...
