A full report of this meeting and the papers that were read and discussed will be published and can be had by any one enclosing $1.00 to the Secretary c. Hamon Warsaw 111. Respectfully j a be. Webster. The Christmas stocking. Inter state Commerce. Senator Cullom has introduced a Bill in Congress for the purpose of regulating Railroad traffic among the several states. It provides for the appointment of a Board of commissioners and its object is through the arbitrage it and supervisory direction of that Board to prevent extortion and unjust discrimination by railroads doing business in several different states. It is framed with a View of providing for the adjudication of complaints by arbitration which would Render recourse to the tedious processes of the courts unnecessary in the great majority of cases. The present Bill is one looking to the Protection of the people to an extent that the state Laws of the various states can not reach for want of jurisdiction Over neighbouring state territories. We have doubts of this Bill or one similar passing As it has so Many features of centralization of Power in the hands of a Federal commission that it would be very difficult for a democratic House of representatives to concur in it. It is very certain however that if the traffic upon railroads is regulated Aud the people protected from extortion and unjust discrimination that it must be done by National or by concurrence of National and state authority.

When the time came wide by vote where the society should hold its next Winter meeting gentleman proposed that they meet at some Point in the Northwest part of the state Warsaw i think. This did not meet the approval of but few. A gentlemen near by me arose and said that it was some nine years since the society met at Centralia and it was an interesting pleasant meeting.
