ITEMS OF INTEREST

The House has passed the Administration railroad bill as amended in the committee of the whole, by a vote of 200 to 126. Section 12, authorizing mergers under certain limitations, was stricken out and a substitute adopted which restricts the interstate commerce commission so that it cannot grant mergers "unless it shall find that such lines are not substantially competitive, and unless it shall also find that the public welfare will be promoted by such sale or lease."

A bill has been reported favorably by the Senate committee on post-offices and post-roads, which provides that the delivery of mail by city letter-carriers will only be made at such residences and places of business as provide at the doors or entrances receptacles for its deposit. The postmaster-general figures that the measure if put into operation would reduce the cost of city delivery several million dollars annually.
