which the, bill bad been referred,

The senate banking committee,
which has jurisdiction orer the
bill on that side of the capitol,

been reported of persons attempt

the treasury changed its mind and
extended until further notice the
time within which such gold could
be accepted.
The time limit for the Philip
pine Islands to accept the inde
pendence plan enacted a year ago
expired but the administration
was disclosed as viewing the plan
open to revival at any time. A
