INDIAN \ TOLLS, Ind., March G.—The house on Wednesday passed the Senate bill providing for a change in the depth of the channel to be cut tin-ought the Kankakee river at Momence, 111. The original bill provided that the excavation should be seven feet deep and 140 feet wide, while the amended bill permits the work to be begun higher up the stream and the excavation to be five feet at the point of highest elevation. Other bills were passed as follows: Authorizing the establishment of oil pipe line companies and giving such, companies the right to lay pipe lines; authorizing incorporated towns to issue bonds for the purpose of establishing fire departments; reducing railroad passenger fare from three to two cents per mile: appropriating $57,300 for the soldiers orphans' home. The fee and salary bill, which was so radically amended in the senate, was returned to the house and the amendments read. The members were very indignant over the action of the senate, and by a vote of S3 to S rejected all the amendments. Conference committees were appointed, but it is believed that they will not agree. Many changes have been made in the fee and salary bill in the senate. Instead of reducing the emoluments of the state officers they are larger than ever before, ranging from 810,000 to §20,000 a year, though it has been the purpose of the reformers to make them lower.
