Everything worked Under suspension
of the rules In- the House yesterday. The
air was charged with excitement as the
House rushed through three Important
measures, on" only 'one of which, tfie
emergency currency bill, was a roll call
Hurdoclc Oppose Bill. c
Victor, Murdock, leader of the small
group of Progressives In the House, op
posed the bill, which, as Anally agreed
to by the conferees, authorises the Sec
retary of the Treasury to Issue on proper
securities emergency currency to national
banks jup to IX per cent of their unim
paired capital and surplus. As the bill
came from the Senate, It had two re
strictions upon the amount to be author
ized. The aggregate was limited to S500,.
000,000 and the amount to be Issued to
each bank traa limited to the amount
of its unimpaired capital and surplus.
Both of these restrictions were 'knock
ed off In the House, and the Senate
Immediately asked for a conference.
The conferees endeavored to reconcile
their differences before the House sd
iourned. but failed, so the agreement will
be ratified today. The agreement also
requires the deposit In the Treasury
of the gold eulvalent of five per cent
of the currency Issued to each bank or
more. In the discretion of the Secretary.

that he plays the 'role with consummate

an easy task for an actor peculiarly
gifted In the line of romantic acting to
be able to to ably assume a character

night by Mr. Van Buren gives further
evidence of his versatility, for the pic
