Perhaps the most imnortant meeUrur
of the Finance Committee of the Senate

Those who voted to report the bill favor
ably were Morrill, Sherman, Allison, Al

of the Senate. Senator McPheraon said
the bill was satisfactory to him, although
he would rather have had his resolution
reported; One feature he did not ap
prove1 was: that which postponed the
time to January 1, 1804, but still he
thought it afforded a relief, for the peo
ple would know at that time at least that
the present inflation of currency would
end and the country would return to
currency and money not debased. Teller

pass, and Voorhees is credited with sav
