The suggestion did not at the moment meet with the opposition of the cuckoo members and. In fact, at the time they thought It would be a Rood Idea. The secretary was 'phoned to Fend the contract to the committee, lie replied that ho could not dp It, but he would come up to tho capllol to-morrow nnd explain it. About this time the cuckoo members of the coinmltlce (oncludeil that It might cause the displeasure of Cle eland to Insist upon t-eclng that poniraut. Then they com menced to marvel and wonder how they should dispose of tho matter and at tho same time not Incur tho wrath of the president. They flnnlly concluded that they had better so nt range it ns to insist upon being allowed to see it. provided that U met the plc.iMite of the piesldent, nnd in tho eent It does not meet with his ap proval, then oppose the plan to make an ex amination of the document. There are many suggestions as to why the secretary so promptly refused to allow tin- committee to sue the contract. It Is believed by some that there Is much moie In the document made binding on the put of the United States by the president and the secretin y of tho treasury than has been given to the public. Many suspicions and rumors along this line are not of .1 compli mentary nature, and It is (afo to predict that an effoi t will be made to see the contract outside the committee, In the event It Is still refused to allow It to be examined by that bods A icolutlon Is likely to be placed befoie the house that will make tioulile for the administration, which.
