The house amendment te the anti-trust bill was reported back to the senate with an amendment striking out certain words aad inverting the words "so that the rates of such corporation may not be raised above what is just and reasonable." The amendment was agreed to and a confer- ence ordered. The bill te permit the manufacture and printing of securities of foreign govern- ments on paper used for United States securltiett. was reported back adversely and was indefinitely postponed. The silver bill was then taken, up and Mr. Shaman offered a substitute for the amendment heretofore offered by him (as to covering inte the treasury the funds now held for the redemption of national bank notes. Mr. Sherman stated that the substitute was to the same effect but in better f having beea prepared in the treasury de- partment.
