The object of the accompanying bill (H. R. 24361, 59th Cong., 2d sess.) is to extend the time for the completion of the bridge authorized to be constructed across Monongahela River by the act approved March 14, 1904.

BRIDGE ACROSS MISSOURI RIVER NEAR KANSAS CITY,

KANS.

JANUARY 25, 1907.-Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be printed.

Mr. SHERMAN, from the Committee on Interstate and Foreign Com

merce, submitted the following

REPORT.

[To accompany H. R. 24367.]

The Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 24367) to authorize the Interstate Bridge and Terminal Railway Company of Kansas City, Kans., to construct a bridge across the Missouri River at or near Kansas City, Kans., have duly considered the same and submit the following report:

It is recommended that the bill be amended by inserting in line 8, after the word “point,” the words “to be approved by the Secretary of War;” by strising out all of lines 9, 10, and 11, and line 12 to and including the word “County,” and by striking out, in line 14, the words “or as near thereto as may be selected.”

With these amendments the bill has the approval of the Secretary of War and conforms to the requirements of the act entitled "An act to regulate the construction of bridges over navigable waters.” Your committee would therefore recommend that the amendments be adopted, and that the bill as thus amended be passed.

CONGRESS

NATIONAL SAVINGS AND TRUST COMPANY.

JANUARY 25, 1907.-Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be printed.

Mr. KLINE, from the Committee on the District of Columbia, sub

mitted the following

REPORT.

[To accompany H. R. 24841.]

that it do pass.

The Committee on the District of Columbia, to whom was referred the bill (H. R. 24841) to authorize the National Safe Deposit, Savings and Trust Company of the District of Columbia to change its corporate name, report the same back to the House with the recommendation

The purpose of the proposed legislation is to permit “The National Safe Deposit, Savings and Trust Company of the District of Columbia” to change its corporate name to “ National Savings and Trust Company."

Your committee believes, in view of the reasons advanced by this corporation in their letter, which appears below, that Congress should grant the desired relief:

WASHINGTON, D. C., January 23, 1907. Dear Sir: In reference to the bill to authorize “The National Safe Deposit, Savings, and Trust Company of the District of Columbia” to change its corporate name, we wish to state in brief the reasons that lead us to request the change from such name to “National Savings and Trust Company."

This company, which operates under the act of October 1, 1890, has found on numerous occasions that on accountof the great length of its corporate name much difficulty has arisen in the transaction of its business, especially in the matter of drawing checks and in having its name incorrectly written in drafts or other commercial paper drawn to its order, and in paper writings of a testamentary or trust character. For this reason the stockholders of the company, in annual meeting held on January 21, 1907, voted unanimously to petition the Congress of the United States to authorize and empower it to change its name to that of “National Savings and Trust Company." It is respectfully submitted that there is no other company in this District bearing this name and that the change will do injury to no one and affect no vested right.

We deem it proper to add that the Comptroller of the Currency has no objection whatever to the proposed change in name.

This application to Congress is made for the reason that under the Code of the
District of Columbia no provision whatever is made by which a trust company may
change its name.
Very respectfully,

THE NATIONAL SAFE DEPOSIT, SAVINGS, AND TRUST

COMPANY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA,

By Thomas R. JONES, President.
Hon. J. W. BABCOCK,
Chairman Committee on the District of Columbia,

House of Representatives.
