of the Union and ordered to be printed

The Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, to whom was referred the bill (S. 255) to amend section 205 of the Interstate Commerce Act, relating to joint boards, having considered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and recommend that the bill do pass.

There has been some question concerning the legality of
