The final clause of the act pro
vides thnt the certineates shall

THE SILVER QUESTION.
A w Pttaae t Ike lntermtlBff 'o
WAeniNOTOw, Febniary 18. There
is a jKissibility that the contest over
uic Buyer quutuon may oe priicucauy
transferred from the Coinage Commit
tee pt uie JUOBse to the Comuntteo on
Banking and Currency. During a re
cent session o the Coinage Committee
Chairman mood intimated very strong'
ly that unices eome positive action
wus taken by his committee the sub
ject might be taken out of their hands
by a prompt report from the Com
inittee on Banking and Currency
on some ol the propositions bo
fore that committee relating to the
silver ismio or coin certificate
on bullion deposite. That Mr. Bland
had some tangible ground for his re.
marks is apparent from the fact that
the Committee on Banking and Cur
rency has determined to begin next
ween we coswaeration of the measures
relating to silver coinage, with a view
to iormuiaane a bill to be reported to
the House. The committee will first
consider, at the instance of Mr. Ding
ley, the Reagan bill providing for the
iMHue of mlTer certificates of the de
nomination ol $1 and $2, in addition to
the certificates authorized at present.
It will endeavor to reach an agreement
upon the question as to whether the
public interests will beet be served by
the issue of silver certificates of small
denomin&tioae or by the resumption
of the issue of $1 and $2 treasury
notes. The decision of this question,
as a consequence, involves some de
cided action upon the silver question.
A careful review ol the composition of
the committee, as stated by its chair
man, discloses the fact that, notwith
standing the addition of Mr. Findlay,
a monometalfist, a majority of the
members ore opposed to the suspen
sion of the eoinage of silver.

Rich0wd, Va., February 18. Gov.
FiUhugh Lee sent his first message to
the Legislature to-day, treatingentire

words: "The people of Virginia, after
a long and acrimonious agitation of
the debt question, reached, in 1881
and 1882, a settlement which has since
received the sanction of both political
parties of tho Btate. From the position
thus taken the people will not re
cede." He recommends the appoint
ment of a commission to explain the
nature of this settlement to the credit
ors of the Btate.

He spoke of bogus butter, and de
clared that the government should
suppress its sale. O. M. Finkham of
Vermont vigorously denounced oleo
margarine. He said that a law should
bo passed making the proprietors of
hotels that used it display this sign :
"None but spurious butter used here."
A. C. Tupper of Osnge, la., held that
oleomargarine should be subjected to
a stamp tax of 1 cent per pound, and
that manufacturers and retail dealers
should be compelled to take out li
censes and display them in conspicu

Senator Ixwe of New York urged
