Washington, D. C, Aug. 15 Presi
dent Wilson won last night in his fight
that congress shall remain in session
to pass a currency reform bill, but
tailed to secure an indorsement of the
measure he is forcing through the
house of representatives. It is a par-
! tial victory for the president, but he
believes he will be able to make it
complete through missionary work he
has projected. -
Satisfied that the bill will be passed
by the house without any amendment
to make it objectionable to him or if
such amendments are made that they
can be corrected in the senate, it will
be tipon the members of the latter
body that he will concentrate pres
sure with view to securing a majority
support for the principles he has ad
vocated. The struggle between the president
and the opposition to his currency re
form plan centered in the caucus of
democratic senators, which lasted' an
hour thi3 morning, adjourning until
tonight, when it was in session for

Mr. Wilson notified the caucus in
the morning that he would not agree
to an adjournment of congress or to
a recess to begin immediately after .he
passage of the tariff bill and to last
until the .middle of October or No

protect on the part of those senatcrs
who are averse to currency legisla
tion, 'but they were enable to' make .
any substantial her?way. In fact, the
only conceEsion they wrung from their
colleagues was that a blanket indorse-1
ment of the administration program
should not be adopted. Here was the
resolution that finally was unanimous

congress proceed to consider and de

SENATORS SHY FROM FLAX.
It was apparent from the discussion
during the caucus that with the ex
ception of Senator Owen and a few
others there were no senators enthus
iastically in favor of the president's
currency plan. Such men as Hitch
cock of Nebraska, Hoke Smith of
Georgia, and Luke Lea of Tennessee
frankly opposed it, making it clear
that they would fight bitterly any at
tempt to force its passage without
what amounts practically to a com'j
Senator Owen of Oklahoma, chair
man of the senate banking and cur
rency committee, had formulated a
resolution, which he submitted to the
caucus, committing the democrats
practically to the support of the ad
ministration program. So much oppo
sition was manifested to the proposal
that in the end he was forced to mod- -ify
it and gree to the innocuous reso- j
lution which leaves every senator free
to present and Bupport whatever cur
rency view he may have.
At the same time this was a gain
for the administration, for Senator
Lewis of Illinois, the "whip" of the
senate, had prepared a resolution pro
viding for a recess of the senate im
mediately after the enactment of the
tariff bill until Nov. 15. Senator Lewis
1 fouricl it necessary to withdraw his
resolution a few minutes after it was
read., because it "commanded practical

SENATORS TO DEFY WILSON f
Senators were saying, however, that
while the horse may be taken to wa-'
ter, the president of the United States j
cannot force it to drink. It is the de-'
liberate judgment of leaders on both
sides of the senate that the president's j
insistence upon currency legislation '
has created a situation which prom-
ises to prolong the consideration of
the tariff bill indefinitely and to keep
congress in continuous session
throughout the fall, merging the spe
cial session into the regular session,
which begins In December.
It is now said that the consideration
of the tariff bill will not be completed I
until about Oct. 1. This is a situation !
which is giving the president a gr-rat:
deal of concern. He realizes that the i
business interests are anxious to bei
relieved of uncertainty in connection
with tariff rates. On the other hand,
the sine business interests are equally-
anxicus to have currency reform.
The two in his view must go hand in

cratic ct:us yesterday that the presi
dent'; promise of comprehensive leg-'
islt'irn governing a system of rural !
credits at the next session had not
destroyed the combination in favor of
1 an amenoment makins agricultural
paper a basis for the issuance of cur
i rency or the creation of credits.
; The situation in this matter went to
! euch a point that Representative Un
derwood, the democratic leader, found
it advisable to propose a compromise.
Had he not done so the administra
tion's bill either would have been re
jected or have gone to the house with
the support of only a slim maj6rity.
It was contended by the conserva
tives that the bill in its present form
authorizes the rediscount of . agricul
tural warehouse receipts where such
receipts are indorsed by a member
bank. This was conceded by the rad
icals, who insisted, however, that this
authority is permissive and probably
never would become effective under
the language of the bill as drawn.
They advocate an amendment re
quiring the discount of warehouse cer
tificates and some of them demand
that such rediscounts shall be made
on the application of individuals or
corporations to the federal reservi
RADICAL PROGRAM FEARED.
The adoption of the radical program,
I it is claimed, would enable such a
combination as the Standard Oil com
pany to control wheat, corn and cot
: ton supplies by dealing in certificates
representing such products impound
t cd in warehouses. This would assist
' those combinations to uphold prices
: and restrain trade.
The conservatives .assert that the
; language of section 14 of the bill cares
for the credit interests of the farm-
ers. This section provides that upon
, the indorsement of any member bank
: any federal reserve bank may discount
' notes and bills of exchange issued or
drawn for agricultural purposes, or the
proceeds of which have been used for
i such purposes.
