But thr word from thr White. House.
It una explained that the, conference Is
to he advisory anil that Senators who par
ticipate will not be bound by the cau
cus action unless they desire to he so
bound, but It Is understood that this cau
cus Is to take over1 the currency legis
lation and that when It concludes Its
work a dish will be prepared for the
Democratic Senators, seasoned with Ad
ministration condiment, and the Presi
dent will Invite his party members
In the Senate to walk up arid parlnke of
It or accept the consequences politically.
Tin- Hi publicans on the committee
uallze that currency legislation Is to be
c.i r ill d on as a partisan matter and are
preparing to meet the situation. All ex
pectation of a unanimous report on a
(inrencj bill fi mil the coiiiirrlttei1 was
abandoned by the lt publican members,
who will now set about the work of
training a bill 'embodying the views of
the minority of t!tc committee. .
This bill will be very different from
the measure that Is likely to receive the
Democratic approval In caucus. It may
provide for a central bank plan, but
the Itrpubllcans will reitnliily adhere to
their policy of hating the stork III the
1 1 set vp association owned and controlled
by thr public.
for I'nhllc Control.
It will be a publicly controlled reserte
association In contradistinction to the
bankers' controlled association for which
Oialrtnnn Owen litis been iontendlng.
Tin- Itepiibllcans seem anxious tn met
the Prrsldnit and his paity followers
on this Issue and take the Judgment of
the country on It
When the currency bill Is carried Into
tin- Democratic caucus the President will
be absolutely I" control of the situation
so far as Ills own party Is concerned,
and It Is generally admitted to-night that
the bill when It emerges then from will
be practically the House bill.

tnll-Trimi to Have IIIkM of XVn.
It is the ifetitral understanding that
regulation of corporations will be tlie first
subject listed on tbe, If Klslstlve programme
that the" Vresldcnt will prrpate for Con
gress at the December session. In a
letter to Representative Clavton of Ala
bama the President urged him to with
diaw from the Senatorial race in order
that he might handle the Administration
anti-trust bill In the House. In this letter
the President made It known that he would
1 1 commend legislation biarlng on corpo
lations at the winter' session landers
ill Congiiss bellete the liesldent will ask
that Oils question hate tight of way In
the House, where It will originate.
There Is one feature of corporation
legislation to which the House Democrats
have already committed themselves. This
has to do with the ystem of Interlock
ing directorates In Interstate corporations.
During the House caucus on the Ad
ministration banking and currency bill
radicals lu the party offered an amendment
prohibiting the director of a national bank
from serving In - like capacity in any
other financial Institution. This amend
ment was withdrawn on motion of Repre
sentatlte Underwood, the Democratic
House leader. At his Instance the caucus
thereupon passed a resolution Instructing
the Committee on the Judiciary to report
a bill aimed at Interlocking directorates.
This nu usurp committed toe party to act
on the question at the December session.
Touched On by Tnn Committer.
The subject was touched upon In the.
rejioit of the mon-y trust committee and
by the special committee on the United
States Steel Corporation. The former
reconiminded that the ban be placed on
Interlocking directorates In flnanrls.1 Insti
tutions, while the Ktrel committee
strongly urged that the system be Inter
dicted In the operation of industrial con- j
cerns doing Interstate business.
Democratic leaders say the President
will give his support to legislation de
signed .u put an end to the evils of inter- .
locking directorates. ,
i'epresentatlve Henry of Texas, author '
of the money trust Inquiry resolution, an
nounced to-day that he would present a '
bill at the December session proposing J
an amendment to the anti-trust laws to
carry out the principle of "personal uilt."
It will make violations of the law a
felony punishable by imprisonment for
not less than two nor more than tn i
years for each offence.
The bill prohibits the "restriction nf
ttade"; makes it Illegal to fix prices by I
agreement, and prescribes other 'regula
tions to be applied to corporations, that do i
business between the States. It exempts
fiom the application of the anti-trust laws
