Washington. Ane. 10 -Slowly but sorely toe lines ol battle are being drawn on the financial question, and before an other day pases the country will prob ably be acquainted with the fall plan ot procedure. It is bettered to have been dually solyed today wbicb p'an is likely to win the approval ot a mnj irity ot all elements. Tonight all indications point to a drawn battle on the floor ol the house, without the reference ol ibe ques tion to the committte on coinige, weights and measures. B and readily acquiesces in the programme to fight tbe baule oui on the floor ot t he house in committee ol tbe whole, arid in this arrangement the anti-silver men. of coarse, readily agree Tbe two bills, on which u tn turn all dis cux-don of the fioancial question, weie! to day fully prepared sod are ready Tor uresentatioo. The one drawn by tbe an i silver men is- brief and to the point It tersely provides for tbe unconditional teoeal ot so much of the act of July 14, 1890, as direcs the monthly purchase ot 4 50i i.OOO ounces ot silver bullion, and issuii-g t feasor v notes thereon. The meas ure drawn by the free-coinage people is lonzer, and is unique in being drawn in tbe manner wbicb will develop the great est po.siole strength of tbe free-coinage element of the house. - ITS PROVISIONS. Tbe first portion nt the bill provides that all ho ders of f 100, or more, of sil ver bullion of standard weight shall be entitled to have tbe same coined ioto sti ver dollars at tbe mints ol tbe United States. The dollars so coined are to be legal tender for all debts, dues and de mands, both public and private, end any bolder ot si ver dollars may, at his d's cretion, depot-it the same in the United Stales treasury and receive silver cenifl cates for the same. The number ot gra'n-i ol silver to he contaired in the standard dollar is to be determined on the floor o he house. The cosine; section of the 'ill provides briiflv for the repeal of the Sherman porrbxsing clause. The bill is retaided bv the opponents of free coin age, as well as by its friends, as tbe -irons' st measure that could bi possihlv preseu'ed by 'de silver men, tbe question of ratio Seing It-It to ihe bouse. The si! -ver men allege that no excu-e w,ll he g v- n faltering free coinage men tor the adodmriit ot their principles. If the ppoDents of free coinage have tbe num encal xtrergth they can. nt course, suc- essively etnke nut every eectioo of the ill relating to tree coinage, and leave only the last section, which provides tor the immed'-!e repeal of the Stiermm orchasing clause. PRIORITY OF CONSIDERATION The great question stih to he deter mined iswhico of the two bills is to have priority ot consideration The silver men te-iribat if the re pea ing bill shoulu te fir-t taken, up. the fre-coinage amendment, which would naturally oe proposed, might, uod. r a strict interpre tation nf par iamentary law, be declared not germane to tbe subject under con sidtration, the main question being that of repeal. To guard agt nst such a rul ing and to in". rite klicessiye votes on all proponj t if Mjrno -Ab presVnied by the sil ver rrfVn, tbe latter demand that tbe bit! of the free-coinage men, which also con tains the clau-e repealing the purchas log act. shall be given priority ol con sideration. . The toestlosi of liver. Washington, Aug 11 Tbe conference of silver and anti silver men 'has reached an agreement by which tbe debate on tbe bill for the repeal of tbe purchase clause o tbe Sherman act will be limited to twelve days. Tbia will be followed by a debate ot three days under tbe five-minute rule, when voting will begin on the bill and the various silver amendment. Tbe present arrangement is tbat a repeal bill shall be introduced in the bouse to day; that an accompinjing- resolution shall pi escribe tbe method of procedure? and general- debate will begin at once. If carried out, tbls programme will bring the house to a vote on tbe bill and amendments August 28. The silver men's part ot tbe programme is to offer tbe first substitute looking to free coinage at tbe present ratio. If defeated, votes wiil be taken on amendments fixing tbe ratio at 17. 18, 19 and 30, in order, and finally these" failing, to fall back on tbe B.and- Allison act. THK BILL INTRODUCED. On the assembling of tue bouse, im - mediately after, reading the Journal, Wilson, Democrat, ol West Virginia, in - t rod aced a repeal bill. Bland offered the agreement made this morning goveinn g debate. It limits the talk to a tmal o( tour'eeu das from 11 a. m. to 5p x. sub night sessions tor debate only it de sired.

Though my views and recommendations already have been officially submitted to that body, and tbnogn I am by no means certain I could furtuer aid In bringing aboui the result which seems so neces sarv, it Would be a great salislaction to me if I could remain at tbe scene t f ac ti'in.
