The insurgents are bitter. With the advent c: democratic con- trol of the house, Champ Clark and his lieutenants are arranging for a clever flank movement on Ihe re- publican enemy.

Three spokesmen last night against the Winters-McGuire utilities bill in the hearing by the house codes com- mittee, were flanked by a score of si- lent railroad and corporation lobby- ists.

This may force delay in the plan fo: a house vote on the measure ncx Thursday. E. H. Hopkins of Cleve land, for express companies, made the chief talk.
