Washington, Aug. 14. In the senate-
While the monotonous debate over the
nutation of free coinage or repeal U
progressing In the house with no pros
pect of a vote until two weeks from
today the Indications are that the sen
ate will direct Its first legislative ac
tion to an entirely different remedy
for the financial situation that of per
mitting- national uanim to issue cur
rency to tho par value of their United
States bonds on deposit in the treasury.
Thus the two bodies will be working;
somewhat at cross purposes and out
of the complications to ensue no one
knows what will finally happen.
Developments In the senate are de
cidedly dlscouraclnff to those who
hoped for tha unconditional repeal of
the Sherman law. The introduction by
Senator Voorhees of the Increased cur
rency bill and its reference to the com
mittee of which he Is chairman indi
cates that the finance committee will
first attempt to seek relief in recommending-
the Issue of national bank
notes to the par value of the bonds
deposited, and that 'the questions of
free colnag-e and repeal of tho Sherman
act will be relegated to the future for
more consideration. Later in the day
when Senator Vest reaffirmed alleg
iance to bimetallism and spoke against
the unconditional repeal of the Sher
man law the repealing; men found
greater cause for disappointment.
When the senate met an avalanche
of petitions was presented and re
ferred. Some prayed for the repeal of
the silver purchaatnr clause of the
riherman law, Quite as many were
against the repeal. Several were for
the free use of silver as a legal tender

Stewart sent to the clerk's desk to

York Recorder, adding, "Give us free
silver." After a portion of tho article
had been read objection to further
reading was made by Hoar and Hawley
and the article was ordered printed as
a document. Stewart remarking that

Leading republicans of the house an
nounce their Intention of taking little
or no part In the silver debate, on the
ground that they were refused a chance
to amend tha order regulating the de
bate. They declare that they did not
believe free silver or sliver, which are
tho only two alternatives possible in
the Blond order, were the only two
possible solutions of tho situation.
They would havo been glad to have
secured a vote on another proposition
which they believed would go further
than any other to meet and relievo
the necessities of the financial sltua
tipn. In view Of this they do not feel
called upon to take part in the debate.
It is doubtful, however, If they can
hold to the programme outlined.

London, Aug. 14. William Waldorf
Astor Is not In possession ot Cliveden,
which be .bought of the Duke of West
minster. The duke Is staying there
now and each week Is entertaining
large parties. Mr. Astor Is "paying
through his nose" for a residence In
England. Even a man of his wealth
must begin to ask himself whether the
entree Into the best set In London Is
worth what it costs. He Is spending
immense sums on the Pall Mall Ga
zette! but, though- It Is 'a lemarkable
paper. It does not "catch on," It Is
estimated that hbr bill for It must be
at least $5,000 a week. The ma-razlne
is under the editorship of a young lord,
and it must be another expenslve,play-
thing. The competition between month
ly publications In England has reduced
the profits of even the successful to the
lowest point, but Mr. Astor is well in
