Mr. Edmunds said tlmt h> was in favor of doing anything th.it the constitution pormit- tefl congress to di> in suppressing and break- ing "p trusts and monopolies, because human OX! erieiv e hail proved them to lie de- structive of the public welfare. People could not shut their eyes to thf fact that if capital combined to wages the workmen wore also compelled to combine to rlefnnd themselves And M the country has for tbe last forty years been turned into great camps of enemies while there ought to be one camp of co-operative friends. 80 far as the constitutional question went, he be- lieved that the safety of the nation depended more largely on the preservation of what were called the rights of the states than on any other one thing. He therefore should be slow about voting for any act of cougress which ho thought went over the boundary which the constitution prescribes. He was not willing to vote for a bill that would be and illiismnary, mere dust and Riid would not be coerced into doing so by neu spaper outcry, by farmers' alliances T anything else. Mr Plait vigorously attacked the bill, de- claring tint it was a bill that aimed at every business in the United States. Unrestricted competition, he asserted, waa brutal warfare and injurious to the whole country. The great corporations and monopolies of the country were built on the graves of weak competitors, forced to their death by re- morseless competition. He would not like to vote against the bill, because he believed that there were criminal combinations in the country. But he believed that every man in jusiness had a moral right to obtain a fair and if his business was down to an un- eniunerative point it was his right to coin- jine with other men for the purpose of rais- ng prices to a remunerative point He was willing to support a well considered and an lonest bill, but the conduct of the senate for the past three days had not been in the line of an honest bill to prohibit and punish trusts. It had been in the line of getting .some bill titli that title to go to the country with. Mr. Walthall moved to refer the bill and amendments to the judiciary committee with nttructioui to report back within twenty days The motion was agreed 31; nays, 28. The Republican senators who voted in he affirmative were Cameron, Higgins, 3latt, Stanford, Stockbridge, Teller and Wolcott. The Democrats who voted in tbe negative were Berry, Cockrell, Pugb, Turpie, I'ance and Voorbees. The senate then took up the dependent pension bill. Mr. Plumb's amendment giving a pension >f per month to all who had served :hree months or more and who are suffering rom mental or physical disability which in- tliem from the performance of iianual labor if the incapacity is total was, ifter some liscussion, rejected. The bili hen M ent without final action. The order fixing the daily hour of meeting at n a. m from Monday next was agreed to, aud at p. m. the senate adjourned. RAPID TRANSIT BILL. A Combination of the Mmnws Grant Md Mr, FBSMtt. ALBANY, March The senate committee on railroads decided to report a rapid tran- sit bill. There were no dissenting rotes and the bill will be put before the senate practi- cally as the Fassett bill K is, however, a combination of the bills of Mayor Brant and Mr, Fasaett with various inject- ed by Corporation Counsel Beekmui of Kew York aud Mr. B. L. Boardman. The gen- eral provisions of the bill as amended it apply to all tbe cities of the state of inhabitants or more. It will, therefore, af- fect six cities. The bill provides that within ten days after the passage of the bill the gov- ernor shall appoint eight rapid transit com- missioners to be confirmed by tbe wnato. Tbe commissioners are to be paid by the cities they serve and by railroad cor- porations, but the state allows (or expeuaeg. The members are to swear in within twenty days after the senate confirms. No mayor of any city can act or be a member of the board. The board can only act in a city when peti- tioned by the mayor and 600 free holders. The board may put a branch office in any city where operations are being transacted. The board is to locate the routes for any road and when the permission is not obtainable the board may apply to the general term of tho supreme court to aid them lu taking lands. The board b to sell the right of fran- chise at auction to the highest bidder. The cities that will come under the provisions of the bill are Rochester, Brooklyn and Buffalo. Farmrra In Convention. COLUMBIA, 8. C., March farmers' association state convention nominated P. R. Tilmnn, of Kdgeflold for governor and 9. Coit of Chesterfield for lieutenant governor. A motion to nominate ether officers was voted down by a targe majority. The plat- form adopted recognizes the imperative necessity of Anglo-Saxon unity and pledges the members of the organization to abide the decision of the regular Democratic con- vention in the choice of state officers other than those nominated as above. The plat- form also demands that all other than state officials shall be nominated by primary elec- tions, that the state's phosphate beds in nav- igable rivers and waters be surveyed, and leased to the highest bidders after the commis- sion has (Ixed a minimum royalty according to the value developed by the surveys and that a constitutional convention be called. Atutrallxn Ballot In Maryland. ANNAPOLIS, Md., March Tje senate Australian ballot bill passed the house of delegates last evening after being slightly amended.

One provision in the bill (and it is the only material change, except, of course, the elimination of the prop- erty a voter of for- eign birth, who cannot speak the English language, to take a friend into the polling place with him to translate his answers to any questions propounded by him by the election officers.
