LOS ANGELES: MONDAY MORNING, AUGUST 28, 1893.
JUST BEFORE THE BATTLE.
The Fate of Silver in the
Probable Passage of the Wilson
The Senate to Insist Upon Its Own
Tho Friends of Silver Flaoe Their Hopes
Upon tho Action of the Upper
■oase—lt Will Heron,mend
Free Silver Coinage.
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Ang. 27.—The financial
debate has closed, and tbe line oi battle
is now being sharply drawn for tbe de
cisive contest that takes place in the
bouse tomorrow. The leaders of both
sides bare exerted every effort to have
their men all here, and it is expected
tbe first roll-call will find almost every
member of the honse present and voting.
The result of tbe successive roll-calls to
morrow is no longer a matter of doubt
to any one familiar with the sitnation.
The free coinage bill to be offered by
Bland, as a substitute for the repealing
bill of Wilson, will be defeated. The
exact vote is uncertain, as the fealty of
certain members to the measure depends
mnoh on the ratio tbat receives the
largest support in the house. Tbere
seems to be no doubt tbat instead of the
highest ratio, 20 to 1, being the most
popular, the old ratio of 16 to 1 will re
ceive the greatest vote and will be tbe
only one seriously considered. Bnt
whatever may be tbe result of tbe vote
on tbe separate ratios, the Bland bill
will be rejected as a substitute for the
Wilson bill, and the majority for rejec
tion will not be less than 40. After the
rejection of the Bland bill, and when
the question resolves itself to the simple
one of the repeal of the purchasing act
of the Sherman law, the Wilson bill will
be passed by a majority of not less than
60. Immediately after the passage of
the Wilson bill it will be reported to tbe
senate, and if the usual course ia pursued
it will be referred to the committee on
finance of tbat body.
THE senate's action.
It is expected tbat tbe policy of the
Senate will be to let tbe bill slumber
tbere, while all the efforts of the npper
r b.ui«.cr »io trrrfcwu tv mcailng ttio
adoption of tbe repealing bill now pend
wa i« that body. The reason this .re
pealing bill reported by the senate com
mittee on finance is believed to be supe
rior to the honse bill is because it con
tains the declaration, originated by
Senator Hill, pledging the government
to tbe policy of bimetallism, and as no
snch declaration is explicitly made in
the Wilson bill, the programme will be
to pass the senate bill and send it to the
bouse for the concurrence of tbe latter
body. Of course, the effect of this will
be to revive the whole question in the
honse, bnt it is not thought any consid
erable time will be consumed by the
house in passing upon the question the
FUTURE FINANCIAL LEGISLATION.
Considerable speculation is being in
dulged in as to tbe next step to bejtaken
in financial legislation after the passage
of the bill repealing the Sherman law.
Tbe committee on coinage, under the
leadership of Chairman Bland, will, it
ia expected, report a free cuinage bill in
due time, and Chairman Springer's com
mittee on banking and currency is ex
pected to present several relief measures
to tbe house.
Congressman McCreary of Kentucky,
one of the delegates on the part of the
United States to the recent interna
tional monetary conference at Brussels,
has prepared a joint resolution for
introduction in tbe house next week.
The resolution provides for the appoint
ment of a commission of three senators,
an equal number of representatives,
with three experts to be selected by tbe
president, wbo shall inquire into the
whole financial question in its broadest
phases, not as to bimetallism alone, bnt
also as to reorganization of the banking
system. The means of promoting inter
national bimetallism will also be a sub
ject for tbe commission to consider. It
is provided that the report of the com
mission shall be made to the senate and
house not later than January 1,1894.
AGAINST WILDCAT MONEY.
Congressman Springer Will Oppose the
llepeal of the 10 Per Cent Tax.
Washington, Aug. 27.—With refer
ence to the report that the committee
on banking and currency may take up
tbe question of repealing the 10 per cent
tax on the circulation of state banks,
Chairman Springer is quoted as saying:
"I do not believe the committee will re
port a bill in favor of tbe repeal of the
tax on state banks. Ido not believe in
going back to the days of the old bank
ing system. I favor stable currency,
good alike in all states. Any other cur
rency is an obstruction to buainess, and
I shall oppose it."

London, Aug. 27.—The Times, in the
conree of a long leader on the dismal
agricnltural prospects of Great Britain,
says that foreign competition depresses
prices of cattle and corn. The imports
of animals and meat, it says, will swamp
the markets this year. Great Britain
will be more than ever dependent on
foreign supplies, and will require at
least 280,000,000 quarters of wheat from
abroad. France must import more than
twice as much as she usually does.
Germany has already begun to draw on
the American markets for supplies.
