which the measure coiimiundcd in caucus
is far short of the number necessary to

It is the belief.however.thatlliecniirseof

of the caucus was sharply pre-
the following resolution pre-
L-priiiRcr and introduced by Crisp:
is tiie sense of this caucus that
c currency bill should be Massed
ouof representatives substantial-
'resentcd in ihe substitute which
n printed in the Record and which
offered at the proper time br the
inn of the committee on banking
urrney, and that the committee on
be ieiuested to report unorder to

"Uvingiton Moves a New Issne.
. Livingston of (Georgia started the cam-us
at a lively rate by moving that nil who
were in iitteudauje shoiiltl Ik- ImiiiuiI by
tbe actli'm of the caucus. In in v i -ii. is
parts of the hall came cries of "point of
order'" ami for a time thn- was consid
erable confuM..u. Chairman Holman
finally nstained the point of ordr. "Fur
thirty years." said Holman, "it has been
the unbroteen rule in the house of rcure-
entatives o consider the action of a cau
M3 advisory, and not as binding. It
eaves memliers entirely free to act ac
ording to their own judgment." It was
Treed that all speeches should be limited
t five minuses and Crisp made the ttrst
eoeh in favr of the resolution.
XCKRANND SPRINGER TACKLE.
Mt the New &"ork Man Is lnrormrd That
CatMlitieM Is Whitt Is the Matter.
His remarks were to the effect that the
house must Jo something In tho direction
of united? party, lllati.l opposed the
resolation oti his familiar frmuinl of op
position to ny sort of national banks.
Springer afokc in the sanie,vein as Crisp.
He said that in the present emergency
caucus action should be very effective in
bringing memliers of the lirty together
and overcoming minor objections. There
was a lively interchange of questions and
answer between t'ockran and springer
before 0ie latter closed. Cockran asked
U bprrliger did not regard the currency
qnotion as an economio rather than u
tiarty question, a question which never
should Iw submitted to party caucus
action. Springer repded that the question
was both a party and an economic one,
but in the present case the party would be
held responsible for the execution of eco
Quite a number of brief speeches wont
made pro and con. but one that put the
caucus on record on one of the most im
portant mailers ptesented Was made by
Sperry, who" closed with an amendment
to the pending resolution by which the
t'perry bill for an issue of bonds to refund
the greenbacks was to be substituted as
the one on which the caucus was to ex
press its approval. Johnson of Ohio op
posed both this and the Carlisle bill reso
lution. Terry of Arkansas had an aniond
tnent for a biil authorizing each state to
buy silver bullion enough to coin one
"dad's dollar" fr each state inhabitant.
and have L'ncle -Sam coin the same.
This closed tht oratory and the Toting
began on the sperry amendment to
fund the greenbacks, which cot but
thirteen votes in the caucus, but only
event y otfiets voted out of the 152 present.
OUU It showed that a plan that would
"undoubtedly stop the drain of gold from
treasuiy was for some reason favored
I y a very small minority. Terry's amend
ment hod 54 ayes. The thirteen voting
faetSpcrry'g amendment were: Sperry,
Halter, Straus, Brickncr of Wisconsin,
Wes of Wisconsin, Coombs and Lock
wood of Xew York, Fielder of Xew Jer
sey, fccndrlx, Tracey, JicAlecr, Deforest
and Pferson of Ohio.
' The question then recurred on the orig
inal resolution to indorse the Carlisle sub
stitute bill. It was decided to divide the
resolation to as to have separate votes on
the indorsement of tho bill and on the in
(txuetioato the committee on rules. The
first part, indorsing tho bill, was carried
by a vote of $1 to 59. The second part,
direct in 5 the rales committee to bring in
a rule "today, was adopted without divls
