CURRENCY BILl
WASUINdTON, Nov. 2(1. OmMic
plans to hasten currency legiln,tion
were Hindu at the senate democratic
currency conference here todny. It
was decided to bcejn lnddinc sessions
immediatelv from 10 a. m. to 11 p.
in. daily without n holiday recess. .
thaso hosfcions thu three . currency
bills before Iho upper house will be
considered, the democratic (.cantor
bcint: pledged to support the caucus
draft.
It was underjilooil that orders for
the hpeetling up of currency dulibci
aliens came dinvt from the While
House. Senator Owen said he thought
it omhlc the bill might pan before
Cliriiitmaf, in which ohmi h wnekV
adjournment would be xisible, oth
erwise there would be no rest for the
lawmakers except on Christmas and
New Year's days. Incidentally, it
seemed likely President Wilson'
plan for a three weeks' holidav vaca
tion would be interfered with.
The currency conference was e
mimed tliis afternoon nfter Iho reg
ular senate session, the bills being
considered in detail. It was said Iho
caucus would continue tonight and
most of tomorrow until the final
draft had been approved.
The republican ienators had not
decided whether or not lo accept the
ileinocratio plan. Some of them
threaten a filibuster.
