But it appears that, up to the pres ent, only 2500 persons have availed themselves of the opportunity, al though the Progressive candidal for governor polled 87,000 votes in this city last November. And, as we have said, this thing does not stand by Itself, but on the contrary Is quite In line with facts of all bill which is now before congress. After all the discussion .and the objections that the Monetary Com mission bill was an "Aldrlch" mea sure, the present administration has at last framed it bill very close ly on the Aldrlch plan as the best scheme ever devised for securing elasticity in the currency.
