THE MORNING ' OREGONIAX, FRIDAY. AUGUST 29, 1913. 3 CURRENCY BILL IS DELAYED BY TARIFF Outlook Now Is Measure Will Not Become Law Until Regular Session. 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 of difference. 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 continuous session. 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.

When the testi mony and the exhibits became unavoid. ably salacious so much so that the policeman testifying hesitated and looked about him nervously before asking the court if be should plunge into specific details Judge VanFleet gave warning that no woman could re main and hear what was about to be spoken except at the expense of her delicacy. No one stirred. Marsha Warrington had to step over some of the exhibits, as they lay on the floor beside the clerk's'desk. when she ook the stand and left it. Concluding her testimony for the day ihe walked to a seat at the table of counsel tor the Government.

He looked nonchalant lv first at one woman and then at the other, talking the meanwhile with Caralnettl. Beside the defendant stood A. Caminettl. Jr.. his brother. For an instant his eyes met those of Marsha Warrington. She turned up her nose saucily, tossed her head and turned away. Her story today was a somewhat curtailed repetition of her previous testimony and carried her through the earlier stages of her acquaintance witn Dlggs to the point where Dlggs said scandal had surrounded them and began to urge the necessity of flight. Her examination will be resumed tomor row morning. Other witnesses covered familiar ground the brief stay at a Reno hotel, the renting of a bungalow, the purchase of supplies and the arrests. It was brought out that Caminettl had resigned his position as a clerk to the State Board of Control In a note writ ten from the Ijotos saloon, Sacramento, on the night of the elopement.

Mrs. Caminettl was not in court today nor was the defendant's mother. Among Dlggs" friends it became known tJfeay that he is planning to open an architect's office here pending a decision on his petition for a writ of error to the United States Circuit Court of Appeals.

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 contractor. "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."
