Now Goes to tho Senate.
Tho Opening Hour.
Washington, Aug. 28. The galler
ies of the house were crowded long be
fore the time for assembling, by per
sons interested iu tbe result of the bal
loting on the silver question, after two
week's debate. When the speaker
rapped for order at noon, nearly every
seat In tbe hall was filled.
While waiting for the speaker to call
to order, Bland freely admitted tbe
claims of tbe anti-silver men of a ma
jority of fifty well founded aud might
Weaver, of New York, appeared at
the bar of the house, and was sworn
iu. Then the clerk reported a resolu
tion containing tbe order of procedure
on tbe silver question, providing for a
vote first on the free coinage of silver at
a ration of 16 to 1.
Votes on Free Coinage.
Washington, Aug. 28. Bland's
proposition in amendment to tbe Will-
son bill, 16 to 1 Free Coinage was de
feated by 123 to 225.
The proposition of Free Coinage 17 to
1 amendment was defeated 100 to 240.
Tbe 18 to 1 amendment was rejected
by 102 to 239.
Tbe other amendments by Bland
were voted down aa follews: 10 to 1 re
jected by 105 to 237; 20 to 1 amendment
rejected by 119 to 222.
On tbe amendment for 10 to lr one
hundred Democrats, thirteen Republi
cans, and eleven Populists voted yea.
Among tbe Republicans were Bweet of
Idaho, Doollttle aud WUson, of Wash
ington. Ellis and Herman, of Oregon,
voted with tbo nays against tbe amend
ment. REPEAL PASSES.
After all tbe Blaud free coinage
amendments were voted down there
peal to the clause of the Bherman law
requiring the government to purchase
four aud a half ounces of sliver each
month, was passed by a vote of 238 to
The Wilson Bill.
Wabhinqbon, Aug, 2S.Tben the
Wilson bill, repealing the silver pur
chase clause of tbe Bherman act. was
read aud Blaud offered his first amend
ment far free coinage at tbe ratio of 10
to 1, which was defeated by 123 to 220,
amid great applause from tbe autl-all-
ver men, who did not expect bo large a
PKOSPEOT IN THE SENATE.
Immediately after the passage of the
Wilson bill it will be reported to the
senate and If the usual course Is pursued
it will be referred to the committee ou

the upper.chamber are directed to so
curing tbo-adoption of tbe repealing
bill now pending Iu that body. The
reason for tbis is that the repealing bill
reported by tho senate committee on fi
nanco Is believed to be be superior to
tbe hoiiBO bill, because it coptalns a
declaration originated by Beuator Hill
pledging the government to the policy
of bimetallism. It Is quite certain no
bill can pass the senate without a dec
laration indorsing tho polloy of bimet
allism, and if no declaration is explicit
ly made In the Wilson bill, the pro
gram w ill be to pass tbe sonate bill and
send it to the bouse for concurrence.
Of course the effect of this will bo to re
vive tbe whole question In the house,
but It is not thought any considerable
time will be consumed by the bouse in
patslng upon, tho question second time.
Conatderabte speculation Is being in-
dulged in a' to tbo next step to be
takon in financial legislation after the
passage of the bill repealing the Bher
man law. The committee on coinage,
under the leadership of Chairman
Bland, will, it is expected, roport a free
coinage bill in due time and Chairman
Springer's committee on banking and
currency is expeeted to preaout several
relief measures to tbe house. Congress
man McCreary of Kentucky, one of
tbe delegates on thq part of the United
States to the recent international mone
tary conference at Brussels, has pro
pared a Joint resolution for introduction
in the house next week. The resolu
tion provides .for the appointment of a
commission of three senators, an equal
number of representatives, with three
experts to be selected by the president,
who shall inquire into tbe whole finan
cial question In its broadest phases, not
as to blmetallsm alone but also as to
tbe reorganization of tbe banking sys
tem. Means of promoting international
blmetallsm will also be a subject for tbe
commission to consider. It Is provided
that tbe report of tbe commission shall
be presented to the teuate and house
not later than January 1, 1804.
Analysis of Vote.
. Washington, Aug. 28. The nay
vote composed one hundred and eight
Republicans aud one hundred and
eighteen Democrats. Great surprise at
majority against free coinage, it being
nearly double the largest estimate made
by tbe untl-sllver committee. Bland,
from his seat at the extreme left of the
speaker, smiled grimly as he- heard
result of vote on quotation of free coin
age at ratio of 17 to 1, resulted, yeas
100; nays 240. Ou this vote besides lose'
of Populist voles wero several negative
yotes from those who voted in favor of
ratio 10 to 1.
Blight gains made on higher ratios
not unexpected by some of (he leaders,
was the Impression that a ratio of 90 to
1 wjuld poll the largest vote recorded
in favor of free coinage. Result of tbe
call, yeas 117, nays 222.
