THE MORNING ' OREGONIAX, FRIDAY. AUGUST 29, 1913.
CURRENCY BILL IS
DELAYED BY TARIFF
Outlook Now Is Measure Will
Not Become Law Until
LONG DEBATE IS CERTAIN
Members Will lose Mileage Unless
There Is Recess, and This Is
Considerable Item In Case
of 'Western Men.
OREGONIAX NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Aug-. 28. It is common be
lief around the Senate that the cur
rency bill will not become a law dur
ing the present special session, but
will be thrust over into the regular
session, to be voted on finally some
time In December or January. This
does not mean that there is expectation
that the present session will adjourn
or recess after the passage and signa
ture of the tariff bill, for that hope
has been abandoned. It means merely
that the Senate cannot consider and
pass the currency bill in two months.
There is no definite way of deter
mining just when the tariff bill will
pass the Senate but the best judges
think It will not reach a final vote
Inside of two weeks, and three weeks
Is a more popular guess. However,
after the tariff bill is passed by the
Senate Its troubles are not over, for
It must then go back to the House,
where the Senate amendments will be
disagreed to, and the bill sent to a
conference committee for adjusetment
of differences between the two houses.
Conference May Take Fortnight.
Notwithstanding the . prediction of
Representative Underwood that an
agreement can be reached wtlhout dif
ficulty, it Is doubtful if the bill can
be brought out of the conference com
mittee in less than a week, and it may
require two weeks to adjust the points
At any rate it now appears that It
will be late in September before the
tariff bill is sent to President Wilson
for his approval. Until the tariff bill
becomes a law by the signature of the
President the Senate can do nothing
with the currency bill, though It is
possible that the House will be ready
to vote on the Glass bill by or before
the time the tariff bill reaches the
White House, though even this is not
certain. Then the currency bill, after
passing the House, 'must go to the
Senate committee before' the debate
can begin in the Senate.
Foil Debate la Certain.
No member of the Senate believes
for a minute that that body can con
clude the debate on the currency bill
In two months, for this is a question
which Democrats, as well aa Republi
cans, propose to discuss - at length,
whereas many Democrats have re
frained from discussing the tariff bill,
at the behest of the party leaders. Two
months from October 1 would be the
opening of the regular session, and if
consideration of the currency bill Is
not completed in the Senate by that
time, it must be continued in the reg
ular session. The unfinished business
of the present special session will go
right along in the ensuing regular ses
sion as though there had been one
If, along about November 15 It be
comes evident that the currency bill
cannot be passed before the time for
the convening of the regular session,
there likely will grow up a demand
for adjournment for a week or two,
not so much for the rest, but because
without such a recess Senators and
Representatives probably would lose
their mileage for' the coming regular
session. Mileage is allowed at the rate
of 20 cents for each mile traveled by
Senators between their homes and
Washington, and in the case of Pacific
Coast members this amounts to 11200
or more. If there is no recess between
the two sessions there can be no legiti
mate demand for mileage, for the law
makers will not have been to their
homes between sessions, and will not
be entitled to mileage.

STONE WILL HAVE TEST
LAXE LABORS FOR OREGON
MATERIA! IX POSTOFF1CE.
Senator Doubts Success, for Reason
That Western Quarries Have -Limited
OREGONIAX NEWS BUREAU, Wash.
lngton. Aug. 28. "I m doing- every
thing: In my power to bring: about the
use of Oregon atone In the erection, of
the new Portland postofllce building,"
aid Senator Lane today, after a visit
with the supervising: architect ors the
Treasury, but it was evident that the
Sonator had his doubts of ultimate success.
Several samples of Oregon building:
stone have been forwarded to Senator
Lane and turned over by him to the su
pervising architect for test. Senator
Lane believes that several of the Ore
gon stones will meet Government re
quirements, but be thinks the Oregon
quarrymen will be handicapped by rea
son of their limited output, especially If
they cannot show in advance that they
will be prepared to furnish stone aa fast
as called for by the contractor who later
will get the Portland award. Senator
Lane has serious doubts whether any
of the Oregon quarrymen will be able
to demonstrate their abiltly to furnish a
large quantity of stone at a rate of
speed that might be demanded by the
"Of course," said Senator Lane, "If
the Treasury Department would ap
prove some one of the Oregon stones
and give the quarrymen producing that
stone the contract for the material, and
then give him a year to get out the
tone before awarding the contract for
the building; this difficulty would be
overcome, but from what I have seen of
official Washington, I do not expect any
thing of the sort to be done; In fact, I
do not believe the suggestion would be
entertained for a moment.
' "Furthermore," said Senator Lane,
"the Government, in my opinion, is
making a mistake In providing for the
erection of a stone building at Portland.
Stone is not a suitable building material
in that country. During the wet sea
son stone walls accumulate moisture,
and In consequence buildings of stone
are damp practically the entire year.
Stone has been discarded as a building
material In Portland for this reason,
and instead hard brick and terra cotta,
which do not absorb moisture, are be
ing generally used in the large busi
ness blocks and in some of the residences."
