BY THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE Cen Be Had, They Think, After 3b ligation is Given By Voting For Williams Bill Senate Would Accept Vreeland Bill. Washington. April 24. A score of Republican members of the house, In cluding the recognized leaders and others, deputized to ascertain the sen timent of the majority on the cur rency question, held an Informal meet ing today and ci uipareil notes on the situation. Counting on no support from the Democrat is members, the Vreeland currency bill can se defeated by twen ty six Republicans.
