Wasuingtox, Fob. !. The house com

examined Director Leech of the mint
bureau on matters relating to the silver
question. Mr. Leech said Ihr minimum
estimate of tho production of silver in
the United States during tho last yeai
was 08,000,000 ounces. If tho amount
used in the arts and sciences was de
ducted tho American product would bt
lebs than government purchases. Tht
amount of currency circulating in the
United States, ho said, was Qi.nO pel
capita. This is Larger than any eountrj
except Prance. There was, in his judg
ment, no lack of circulating medium in
this country. Tho Now York banks hold
about $33,000,000 idlo money over and
Mr. Williams inquired why Mr. Leech
thought that tho .silver coin of othei
countries would be dumped here if w
adopted free coinage.
Mr. Leech 1 think Eurojtean silvei
would come here in ship loads just at
fast as it could be brought. I think the
bank of France would send a large part
of its i?L'o9,000,000 of silver here. Bel
gium would do the same.
Williams wanted to know why silver
coin would bo dumped here when
needed abroad, for circulation in the
countries having it.
Leech There is more of it in do
mestic circulation than is needed. Peo
ple reject it and it naturally gravitates
into the vaults of banks where it is used
for tho issue of notes. Besides, it is not
a question of any slight loss; it is a ques
tion of standard, sound currency. All
Europe is practically on the gold stand
ard, partly from choice and partly from
necessity. The countries of Europe art
inclined to adapt themselves to tho gold
standard and I do not believe tho loss of
wuall paper would stand' in tho way ol
their doing that. Besides, they believe
it would be a temporary measure, that
we could not sustain the free coinage
of silver and that it would be to theii
interest to take advantage of it while we
were making tho oxiierimeut. That, in
my judgment, is tho belief of European
Leech said he behoved silver would
come here as long as we exchanged gold
for it. Shipments would cease when
we got on a silver basis. We would be
comiielled to pay shippers gold because
they could get legal tender notes, which
wero practically interconvertible with
Mr. Leech admitted it was a matter
of opinion and conjecture, but his judg
ment was that free silver coinage
would either send gold abroad or to a
Air. Bland suggested that tho proposi
tion of Mr. Leech was that tho people
of Europe would take silver from home,
where it would buy as much as gold,
admitting it was not worth as much for
foreign transactions, and sell it hero,
where they could not buy as much for
it as at home.
Mr. Leech insisted that it would be
tho case because of the desire of Europe
to get on a gold basis, and said Austria
was contemplating that very thing. Mr.
Leech said he would regard an inter
national agreement as a very great bene
fit to mankind.
Mr. Tracy asked would not a country
in England's position receive more bene
fit if wo alone wero to pass 'a free coin
age bill and they wero to get our gold
than if an agreement were reached,
Mr. Leech A free coinage bill would
certainly be largely in their interests.
Washington, Feb. -J. Tho houso ot
representatives sjiont another monoton
ous day in discussion of the rules, and it
is now evident that tho first two months
of tho session will close with tho rules
of procednre of the Fifty-second con
gress still under consideration. The
progress made was very slight, but it
was marked by one significant event
tho adoption of the ainendmont pro
posed by Mr. Dingloy on tho Republi
can side and supjKirted by ex-Sjieakei
Rend. This amendment, too, is ono oi
the most important thus far proposed to
tho committee's rejwrt, as it provides
that all senate amendments to house
bills other than appropriation bills be
considered as soon as laid before the
house by the siK-aker.

This isconsidored an important step
toward tho practical exjieilition of leg
