WILSON'S CURRENCY BILL TO PASS SENATE TONIGHT
Champ Clark Nits Back
At "Calamity howlings"
WASHINGTON. Doc. 19. ? Speaker
Champ Clark left the chair today to
reply to what he characterized the
"calmity howling" of James K Mann,
the Republican floor leader in the Na
tional House of Representatives.
The Speaker declared that there are
two men in the United States whom
he never talked to but always ques
tioned. "I make them talk to me,";
he said.
"Thev are James J. Hill, the 'Em
i
pire Builder. ' ami Or. John X. John- 1
son. of Kansas City, a Baptist preach
er who has had sense enough to accu
mulate $4,000,000 and to keep it. Mr.
Hill told me that there will be no pan
ic, and Dr. Johnson says the currency
bill, which at this moment is riding
to its final victory in the Senate, will
prevent all the money of the country
from drifting to New York."
The Speaker said that good times
are just ahead of the American peo
ple and that when they come they will
come to remain because the country
is being put on a natural basis ? one
that is economically sound.

crew took up Quarters in the lower
camp about half a mile down the
mountainside until such time that the
destroyed building can be replaced,
and work is continued with the lim

to Juneau with the men but will go
