He either has to purchase 4,500,000 ounces at the dealers' prices, no matter how un reasonable or exorbitant, or he must em ploy such means as are at hi command to ascertain the actual market price. The effort ot the department since June 12 has been to simply ascertain the fair market price of bullion each day it was offered for sale, and when ascertained to make purchases at that price. The Foreign Affair Committee has decided to report favorably the McCreary substitute for the Everett bill.

He declare the bill's teeth are drawn, that it Is a makeshift in keeping with the course of the administration, and that he will fight it tooth and nail. FOREIGN CABLES.
