Kxchango Uommleslonera has been do
llvered to Ambassador Porter. It can
tains a note from Foreign Mlnlstor
Dolcasso saying Franco is not prepared
to oxpross binding conclusions until
sho has conEulted with tho powers.
Tho report endorses tho principle of a
gold standard for China and other
Hllvorusing countries, but it points out
that tho plan Is posiiblo only undor
Judicious control of tho colnago by tho
government and tho creation of an ade
quate gold resorvo. It favors a coinage
ratio for tho Orient fixing tho faco
valuo of silver slightly above Its bullion
value, similar to tho American system
in the. Philippines.
Semi-official advices from Russia in
dicate that tho commission nppolntod
by Finamo Minister Wltto has adoptod
a Blmllar conclusion. Tho French and
Russians consider it protorable to estab
lish n uniform eystom In China by be
ginning un a silver basis and nftoiward
raising It to n fixed gold valuo, than to
begin on a gold standard immodlatoly.
