Washington, Feb. 11.?Secretary Carlisle srlll
h-> aaked to appear before the House Ways and
M.-ans Committee to-morrow and lay before the
meanbara B oopjr of the ;ontraet recently made
wlth the -.yndlcate for the purchase of the new
lssue of tJ.iv.'rnmont bonda. That this Invlta
t'.ii 8BOUM be Btat to hln- wis the concluslon
reached by the a .-.mmlttee after a seeslon of an
hour and a half t.'-day.
When the committee met. Mr. Byntim, of In
diana. who offered a resolutlon at Saturday'a
B-ieattBg favoring the lssue of a thlrty-year 1
per cent g.dd b..nd. withdrew lt wlthout r-om
ment. Thereupon Mr. Wllson. of West Virglnla,
the ehalrman of the committee, laid before the
members a propoaltlon In wrtting whlch. whlle
la.-king the form "f a rcsolutlon. embodied the
.Bsentlal character of such a measure; looklng
to the authorizatl Ofl of the Presilent to ncgo
tlate thla specllic 1 <an at I per cent, payable la
gold, and nroh'.biting th Se.-r.-tary of the Treaa?
ury from uatBg t' f11 current expenses, but only
U I r**er\e for the greenbacks. The term of
years fer whh-h th<- b< nds mlsrht run was not
mentlomd. This led tr t g.-neial disousslon,
some of the members h.ddlng thst the Presldent
In his nie??aj:?- had saui (hal lt must be a thlrty
year bond.
ReprtTBCBlltlTa Botirke Corkran. "f New-York,
wh.. <-ame to Washlngtot* this mornlng te attend
tba nn-eting of the committee, at once opposed
the suggesJtloa Of a thlrty-year bond. He argu-d
that It was iuiL8C8aB8tT. "in stated at the same
Hme tha. h-- was wlHInK to support any propo
sltloa lo.'king t.. the malntenance of the credlt
of the Government. Mr. Co.kran th.-n offered a
reaolutlon (which wen*. over) authorlzlng the Sec?
retary of tl.e Treasury to buy gold and silver
bullloB in such amounts as may enable him to
malntaln tn.- parlty of the two metals and the in
tegrity of the gold raaarve. and lssue bonds for
th- g"id or silver bulllon purchased, provlded
that tbe sann- m-tal purchased shall be returned
at stated n> .i' ds lUed in the bond at 3 per cent
Irit'-r-st for the Oae of tb-- bulllon offered.
It alao came out ln the .lls.-ussion that on the
.lav the contract was alleged to have been made
aith th.- 8-rndlcate 4 per cent bonda were selllng
in New-Tork at.6 per cent more than was offered
for the proposed new thlrty-year loan.
?fhe (.neetlOB was then asked of Mr. Wilsoa
how it bappened that the Pre*ldent could negotl
gte BUCh a loan with his frlends Messrs. Stetson
and Morgan. repiesentlng the Rothsohllds of
Europe, for a thirty-yar bond at this difference
betareea the price offered and the quotations for
4 per centa Ib N.-w-York that day. Mr. Wilson
replled that he did nct Know. This led Mr. Hop
ki:i?. of Illin .is. one of the Republlcan members
of the committee, t.. move that Secretary Carlisle
I... asked to come before the committee this after
and lay before them a eopjf of the contract
made Wlth tbe syndicate. He added that lt was
OBly pr-'per that the Way.*. and Means Commtt
tot of the House, whlch was ??alled upon to legis
late In this matter, should b- in possesston of th*
fulleel Informatlon not only regarding the con
tra t. but the circumstances under whlch U waa
made. bo that the committee could vt" intelll
g*>ntlv upon lt. ThU proposUion wa* s-emd-'d
l.y Mr. C.ickran. and after a brlef debate waa
I. the OBly oppofling votes belng cast by
Mr. ByBUm, rf Indlana, and Mr. Turner. of
Qeorgla.
A raceaa waa then taken. and a telegram was
aenl t.. tbe fsscreUry advistng him ?f the om
mlttee'a a.-tion. and aaklng him if he would com
ply wlth it
Aft^r some lit'l" delay a replv wasj received
stating that the Becretary was temporarlly ab
?ant from th" departmeat and might not r-turn
untll a late hour in the afternoon, The commlt
tee th.-n a.llourned until 10 o-click to-morrov/
mi irnlng, with the lnderstanding that the Secre?
tary arould be c .mmunicat*Hl with ln the m-an
