1 Act on Wool at Once. . ..
. Following a stormy caucuB of the
members of the house from New York
this afternoon by a vote of 14 to 4 lu
favor of wool on the free list immedi
ately, it was deplar-d this afternoon
that the free raw we?l would,be fram
ed by the ways and means, committee
and submitted to the house caucus.' All
It is said will abide by the f.aueu.
Such action by the government has
been believed probable by local politl- ,
clans and Postmaster Rlchey though
nothing definite had been announced
until ' today. Postmaster Rlchey had
not been Informed of the step taken at
Washington, this afternoon and knew,
nothing except that he had filled out
blanks sometime apo that led him to
believe such a move was on foot. A
local bank also received information
to that effect this morning.
Aside from the fact that the govern
ment pays interest pOatlngs depooi
at jthe rate of z per cent, ana that tne
local postmaster acts as receiving "tel
ler," little is known of the working
principles of the institutions establish
ed by congress at a recent session.
One or two such banks have been in
operation in Oregon for the past year.
Mt is believed It will require from 60
to 90 days to put the bank in opera
tion but It is more generally conceded
that the bank will not become opera
tive here until, the new building is
built and equipped. . This Is mere con
jecture, however. '
