There Is a fpncral beHf in the chain
ber that thu present woe!: will bring :i
solution of thu probli'in. Tlio opinion
1 expressed tliul there will be u coin
promise of some character agreed to
and put through. The proposition to
h! m ply extend the Slu-miui law for a
definite pprlod with reduced monthly
purclmses seems to be talcing shape as
the most liltely of the various praposi
lions lo receive iiii.n-oval .
.M st of the suggestions so far made
foreoinproinise are very much alike,
In that they llx a time when the pur
chase and coinage of silver shall cease
altogether, and that they itc'rcise the
amount to be purchased per month
by ftom S-, 000,000 to $1,000,000 worth.
'1 he proposition lo include a bon.l
purchase is still receiving attention
and tin: present indications tiro that
while a great many Demojr.its may
not agree to such n pnnoiitlon, it
may bj put through v th Ui3 as-dst-anee
The senators from tlic silver produo
iilg states are coiist.intly consulted
and advised with as to the terms of
agreement, but they will not be al
lowed to dictate in thu mattor of com
promise. There is not a sulllt-icut
iiuinbor of thrm to continue the light
long if there should be an arrange
ment against them Their allies will
not desert them outright, but it op
portunity oilers for ft Stt'"".: !. "'

reasonable arrang :n -nt looking lo
thu continued rciotriiition of (-liver.
It may be stated, how ever, that the
hilvcr party in the senate, as a whole,
including bo'.li Dcmociats and lie
publicans, is not anxious to secure a
compromise as is supposed. '1 lie silver
men appreciate that tliuv aio iu
majority and cannot dictate the terms
of capitulation, but they fuel that tlio
minority is alunst as anxious for
adjournment as they are, and if they
can make it clear that they will bo
nble to go on witli tlio debate in
ddlnite'y, they will be able to secure
very liberal concessions.

the house this week. To-day is tlio
last day for dehatu on thu Tucker

and on Tuesday, according to the

On Wednesday, after thu disposal
of tlio oloutlons bill, tlio bill from the
banking and currency committee to
prevent directors ami olllci.il.s of na

of thu institutions with which th y
tiro connected, except on written per
mission of the board of directors,
which was considered during 1 ho
morning hour on Monday last, will
again coinu up, according to tlio no
tice given by Mr. Cox on Thursday.
A gunm-al sentiment uxists in favor of
throwing additional safeguards about
national bauk. It is considered an
important measure and somo objec
tions to it 111.13 roiitlt in its modilL-a-lion,
but it will doubtless pass when
it reaches 11 vote.
On Thursday, If the banking bill is
disposed of, the Mct'reary substitute
for tlio Kverott bill to amend the
lieary exclusion a"t so as to extend
the timu fur registration of Chitiese
