Representative Cox. member of the
Banking and Currency Committee and
an advocate of free coinage, bas prepared
a bill to repeal the Sherman silver law.
Tbe bill repeals the Sherman law, and
re-enacts the Blind law of 1878, with
the proviso that the leiial-tender charac
ter of the note issued nnder the Sher
man law shall not bs Impaired. The
Secretary of the Treasury Is directed to
have coined the bullion purchased nn

It waa Impossible for the Senate Com
mittee on Appropriation to hold it own
against the river and narnor compila
tion, and in every cut made in the
amounts appropriated, over which there
was any dispute, tbe committse was
beaten. It was so with the appropria
tion for the cascade of the Columbia,
where 81 nators Mitchell and Dolph made
their fight. In this Instance Senator
Squire took a stand which showed that
he was also alive to the int resta ol hi
constituents in the appropriation! for
improvement of tbo Columbia In ad
dition to what was said iy the ten Pa
ciflo Senator, tht y all made speeches in
favor of the larger appropriation. In
the House bill the appropriation was $1.
419,250, more than 2 0,( 00 above the
amount for which the contract was act
ually Jet. This gave tbe committee a
chance to make the cut, which was fixed
at $809,000 in the Senate. Senator
Mitchell theu offered an amendment
fixing the amount at $1,239,653, and on
this proposition the fight was made and
won on an aye and no vote of twent-four
to twenty. Attention was called by the
ofpnents ot the appropriation to the
fat t that Senator Mitchell's amend
ment railed for $50,000 more than the
contract, and the Oregonian- explained
