Wamiixoto, Jan. 18. Perhaps the
most Important meeting of tho finance
committee of tho senate held during
this congress was that of yesterday
morning, which resulted In a decision
to favorably report the Sherman bill to
repeal tha purchase of silver. Subse
quently Mr. Sherman reported tho bill
and It was placed on tho calendar.
The meeting was largely attended,
every member being present but Scnn
tor Jones nnd Senator Vance, who ls
111. While the majority were In favor
of the action Liken, n vigorous opposi
tion was manifested by Mr. Harris, of
Tennessee, and Mr. Voorhces of Indi
ana. Those who voted to report
the bill favorably wero Senators
Morrill, Sherman, Allison, Aldrich,
Hlscoek, McPherson and Car
lisle. Senators Voorhces and Harris
had risen to make emphatic protests
ngalnst the proposed action of the com
mittee, and would havo been joined by
Senators Jones and Vanco had they
been present Tho meeting is said to
have been "interesting" this probably
referring to the speeches raado by
Messrs. Harris nnd Voorhces. They
were outvoted, however, anil the dls-
cuvslon will now be transferred to the
floor of the senate.
Senator McPherson said that tho bill
was satisfactory to him, although ho
would rnthor have had his resolution
reported. Tho one feature he did not
approve tsas that which postpoacd the
tlmo to January 1, le9l; but still he
thought It afforded relief, for tho peo
ple would know that nt that tlmo nt
least tho never ceasing Inflation ot tha
currency would end, and that the coun
try would return to a currency and a
money that was not debased. Senators
Teller nnd Voorhevs do not believe tho
bill can pass, nnd Mr. Voorhces is cred
ited with saying that not ten demo
cratic senators will vote for 1L

come of the consideration of the repeal.
' even if It bo not passed, by scenrin? a
i test vote, which will show that a ma
jority is opposed to free coinage and
that filibustering alone prevented a re
pent of the present law.
The canvasi that Is being mado of the
house for the repeal of tho bill Is very
Imperfect us yet, but tho nntl-sllvcr
men claim tltnt thero nre a great many
sliver men who wnnt tho Sherman law
repealed and will voto for such a meas

of course, very strong and a great deal

There ls somewhat of a complication

think that the question ought to lie

ministrilion, but it appears that most
of them uill vote their convictions if
tho question Is pressed and will not be
disturbed by the consideration of what
will most perplex Mr. Cleveland.
