ARri'vmmit (iipiit ltpiiplit lo Jluiiklntl Wasuingtox, Fob. !. The house com mittee ou coinage, weights and measured examined Director Leech of the mint bureau on matters relating to the silver question. Mr. Leech said Ihr minimum estimate of tho production of silver in the United States during tho last yeai was 08,000,000 ounces. If tho amount used in the arts and sciences was de ducted tho American product would bt lebs than government purchases. Tht amount of currency circulating in the United States, ho said, was Qi.nO pel capita. This is Larger than any eountrj except Prance. There was, in his judg ment, no lack of circulating medium in this country. Tho Now York banks hold about $33,000,000 idlo money over and above reserves. Mr. Williams inquired why Mr. Leech thought that tho .silver coin of othei countries would be dumped here if w adopted free coinage. Mr. Leech 1 think Eurojtean silvei would come here in ship loads just at fast as it could be brought. I think the bank of France would send a large part of its i?L'o9,000,000 of silver here. Bel gium would do the same. Williams wanted to know why silver coin would bo dumped here when needed abroad, for circulation in the countries having it. Leech There is more of it in do mestic circulation than is needed. Peo ple reject it and it naturally gravitates into the vaults of banks where it is used for tho issue of notes. Besides, it is not a question of any slight loss; it is a ques tion of standard, sound currency. All Europe is practically on the gold stand ard, partly from choice and partly from necessity. The countries of Europe art inclined to adapt themselves to tho gold standard and I do not believe tho loss of wuall paper would stand' in tho way ol their doing that. Besides, they believe it would be a temporary measure, that we could not sustain the free coinage of silver and that it would be to theii interest to take advantage of it while we were making tho oxiierimeut. That, in my judgment, is tho belief of European financiers. Leech said he behoved silver would come here as long as we exchanged gold for it. Shipments would cease when we got on a silver basis. We would be comiielled to pay shippers gold because they could get legal tender notes, which wero practically interconvertible with gold. Mr. Leech admitted it was a matter of opinion and conjecture, but his judg ment was that free silver coinage would either send gold abroad or to a premium. Air. Bland suggested that tho proposi tion of Mr. Leech was that tho people of Europe would take silver from home, where it would buy as much as gold, admitting it was not worth as much for foreign transactions, and sell it hero, where they could not buy as much for it as at home. Mr. Leech insisted that it would be tho case because of the desire of Europe to get on a gold basis, and said Austria was contemplating that very thing. Mr. Leech said he would regard an inter national agreement as a very great bene fit to mankind. Mr. Tracy asked would not a country in England's position receive more bene fit if wo alone wero to pass 'a free coin age bill and they wero to get our gold than if an agreement were reached, Mr. Leech A free coinage bill would certainly be largely in their interests. Tim Huump. Washington, Feb. -J. Tho houso ot representatives sjiont another monoton ous day in discussion of the rules, and it is now evident that tho first two months of tho session will close with tho rules of procednre of the Fifty-second con gress still under consideration. The progress made was very slight, but it was marked by one significant event tho adoption of the ainendmont pro posed by Mr. Dingloy on tho Republi can side and supjKirted by ex-Sjieakei Rend. This amendment, too, is ono oi the most important thus far proposed to tho committee's rejwrt, as it provides that all senate amendments to house bills other than appropriation bills be considered as soon as laid before the house by the siK-aker.

This isconsidored an important step toward tho practical exjieilition of leg islation and no stronger evidence of a disposition to consider the rules in a non-partisan spirit could be afforded than in tho general support which the amendment of Messrs. Dingley and Reed received from the Democratic side. Pending the motion by Mr. Boatner striking out the clause permitting gen eral legislation on appropriation bills, provided after a long debate, being ger mane, it retrenched expenditures, the previous question was ordered and tho motion defeated. On motion of Mr. Enloo an amend ment was adopted providing that all bills shall bo introduced by presenting them to the clerk propcrlyndorhed and shall bo appropriately referred by the speaker. Immediately following this tho mo tion of Mr. Dingley of Maine, referred to above, was made and agreed to. Tlip SpiiiiIp. Washington, Feb. 4. Tho usual batch of petitions was presented and re ferred. Mr. Dolph from the committee on foreign relations, reported back ad versely the various anti-Chinese bills and reported in lieu of them a bill con tinuing in force for ten years all laws oi that subject now in force. The joint resolution proposing an amendment to tho constitution of tht United States relating to marriage ano divorce, introduced by Mr. Kylo, wat taken up and Mr. Kylo addressed tin senate in stipjiort of it. An amendment was proposed that con gress shall havo exclusive power t regulate marriage and divorce in tin faeveral states and territories and tht District of Columbia. At tho close ol his remarks tho joint resolution was re ferred to the judiciary committee. Tho public printing bill then came uj and was amonded by adding the wordi "but the provisions ot tho eight houi law shall apply." Without disposing ol tho bill tho kouato adjourned. Major Otrruitui Court martluli-il. Cleveland, Feb. -I. Tho court martial of Major L. C. Overman of the army engineering corps, opened in llollenrten. Minor Overman was ar raigned and tho Hiiccificntious read tc him, charging lain with appropriating to his own use curium sums of money. The first charge was for embezzlement and violations of tho articles of war. Tho second clmrgo contained several specifications and accused tho mujor of making falso vouchers and certifying them to bo just, thus defrauding the government of different sums. In effect he is said to have bought all sorts ot household goods for his own use anil charged them to tho government as sup plies of various horts.
