TO BUY SQUARE 686 P=(= 21W 3Y TE APP2Bs s3s. a&TISACfosY4 Amount to . ralt $74,115-The At torney General to Pass-Upan the Titles to the Properties. The commission in charge of- the con struction of the proposed Senate. Office building today approved the condemnation proceedings relating to the purchase of square 686, lying north, Of the Capitol grounds, and bounded by B, C and st streets and Delaware avenue. A meeting was held yesterday in the room- of the committee on foreign relations,' at which Senator Cullom, chairman of the construc tion committee; Senator Gallinger and El-. liot Woods, the superintendent of. the Capitol, were present. The individual awards were taken up one by one and con sidered, and while it was found that they amounted in the aggregate to nearly $750, 000, which made the price per square foot more than was paid for the House office building site south of the Capitol grOunds, it was practically .agreed to accept the awards. This decision was formally an nounced today. Congress, at its last session, appro priated $750,000 for the purchase of a site for the SenatE office building, and nothing remains now but to buy in the land. This will be done as soon as the Attorney Gen eral reports on the titles to the -separate broperties, which have been sent to him for examination. Senator Cullom called at the Interior De partment this morning for the purpose of ascertaining the status of the legal pro ceedings incident to the condemnation and sale of the property on the site selected. Under the law the Secretary of the In terior must approve all proceedings in such cases, and the matter has just left the hands of the Secretary to go to the Attorney General, by whose direction the titles will be examined before the final sale is made. It is the desire of the com mission in charge of the erection of the building, Senator Cullom said, to get the work under way as soon as possible, and it is hoped that the work of clearing the site of the buildings that now occupy it will be begun within a month or two. The Awards for the Property. Messrs. Robert I. Fleming, James F. Oyster and H. Rozier Dulany were the commissioners appointed by the court to appraise the respective interests of all per sons concerned in the lands embraced in the square. The proceedings were conducted before the commission of appraisers in behalf of the government by Mr. William Frye White, special assistant United States at torney for the District of Columbia. The appraisements include the value of the improvements upon the parcels of land referred to, the total being $746,111. Con gress limited the amount to be expended in acquiring square 686 to $750,000. The schedule of appraisements follows: Parcel No. 1, $27,868, Julia T. Bodfish, 58 B street northeast, owner.

FLUCTUATION IN SILVER. ow It is Hoped to con fne It Within 4 Narrow I,tnmits. Secretary Hay has n!a,e public the re port of the commission on international exchange regarding its' operations during i the past year. In the main the report deals with the efforts nge by Commis stoner Jenks to establish in China a sound 4 monetary system whichiwould fix the rate of exchange between W5 greatest of the silver-using countries and the gold-stan lard countries. Prof. Jenks believes that the outlook has been gr7dtly Improved. 4 Some attention is %vea! in the report to the recommendaWa. ion, which was inTrscd'b e E ro- 4 pean comme.sto'a in :,158 sIet purchases of-silver a"Jtually required for coinage pur- 4 poses should be made with as-much regu larity as tossible. It is seclaed that any I step contributing toward stability in the price of silver bullion would in itself tend to diminish the fuctuatlaon f exchange, and that it is gratifying tbrepor't that the policy of comparative regularity of pur chases by the government of British India 4 and other governments has-borne fruit. Attention is called to the fact that since April last the variation in the price of silver at London has been within the lim its of about 4 cents er ounce, while in 190d the variations *ere more than 12 cents. 4 - AGREE TO PEACE PROGRAM Sweden and Mexico Accept the Presi dent's Suggestions. One by one the powers are accepting 4 President Roosevelt's suggestion that an ther session of The~ Hage tribunal be onvened to complete the Work outlined by4 he flrse peace congress. Secretary Hay mas just received cordial responses from Sweden and Mexico. The Swedish govern-4 nent expresses its gratitude to President oosevelt for calling the matter to -the d ttention of the powers, accepts the invi- 3 ation and expresses the opinion that oned f the indst important subjects which the ourt should conuider is the effect -of war n the rights of neutrals sad a definition of ontraband of war.
