RESOLUTION WINS 130 TO 60 Change In Currency Measure, Over Which Fight Waged, Was Offered by ' Representative Neeley of. Kan sas Hearings In, Senate. .." Washington, Aug. 25. Representa tives who support the administration currency bill won" a victory in the house Democratic caucus on Friday when they brought to their aid an un qualified indorsement of the m&iBure from Secretary of State Bryan and de feated proposed "insurgent" amend ments that would have prohibited in terlocking directorates in national or state banks incorporated under the proposed law. Secretary Bryan, in a letter ad dressed to Chairman Carter Glass of the currency committee, approved the bill as it stands, declaring President Wilson had recognized .fundamental rights of popular control in its provi sions. He asserted that the plank of the Democratic platform against inter locking directorates was aimed chiefly at trusts, and ha urged Democrs.ts to "stand by the president," and not to load down the currency bill with any amendments that might endanger tis early passage. , Fortified with the backing of one of the makers of the Baltimore platform. Representatives Glass and Underwood met the demand for an amendment to prohibit interlocking directorates with a counter proposal that the Dem ocrats of the house take up general legislation against interlocking direc torates at the next session. -A resolu tion by Representative Underwood. adopted by a vot9 of 130 - to to, re ferred the entire subject tfirthe Demo cratic members of the judiciary com mittee of the house, and directed them to bring in a bill at the next session of congress that would prevent interlock ing directorates of all kinds. Administration leaders said the large vote that supported the Under wood motion and the hearty approval that greeted Secretary Bryan'n in dorsement of the bill assured the ap proval of the complete Glass bill with but slight jehange. There remains several important amendments to be considered, but it was declared that the only modification of consequence would be a change to make it clear that agricultural paper will be given the same credit as commercial or in dustrial paper. The amendment over. which thi fight waged throughout the day had ' been offered by Representative Neeley of Kansas, one of the so-called "insurg ent" members of the banking and cur rency committee. " It was . not until near the close of the session that Chairman Glass, after declaring that President Wilson did not want such an amendment incorporated . in. the bill, brought forth the Bryan letter. He also produced a letter addressed to him by Samuel Untermyer, who was counsel for the Pujo money trust committee, saying he did not believe the interlocking directorate provision should be in the currency bill. " Objecting members who had ques tioned Mr. Glass interpretation of the president's attitude gave way before the vigorous assertions of Secretary Bryan, and a vote quickly settled the question, r BANKERS SEEK COMPROMISE Leading Financiers of Country Gather . In Chicago and Consider Cur rency Remedies. Chicago; Aug. 25. Bankers from all over the United States, including many of the most prominent financiers of the country, joined together on Friday in the Hotel La Salle to' whip.
