Silver Men Win.
Washington, Sep. 1. The Bilver
men stole a march on their opponents
in the house yesterday and gained a
victory which makes it impossible for
the gold men to impose on any consid
eration of bimetallic or flnauclal legis
lation that may be reported by the
committee on coinage during the com
ing session. The custom in the house
has been to make the reports for the
committeesappropriations and ways and
means privileged matters at all times
and when the new rules were being
considered today Springer, chairman'
of the committee on banking and cur
rency, suddenly sprung an amendment
extending the same favoritism to the
committee on banking and currenoy.
Kllgoro immediately followed with au
amendment also yielding the same to
the committee on coinage and although
these amendments were sharply op
posed the last was adopted by a vote of
133 to 05 and the rule was adopted by
a vote of nearly two to one. Not until
It was all over did members of the
house generally realize the immense
victory gained by the bimetallisms. "Un
der this rule the committee on coinage
can report the sliver bill at any? time
and force its consideration by the
The bouse, by the adoption of these
amendments, has broken away from
the leadership of the commltte on rules,
presided over by Speaker Crisp, and de
clared that it shall no longer be In the
power of that committee to determine
whether free coinage bills' shall be ao-
cordedconsidecatlon-or whether the at
tention of the house shall be directed
to other legislation. A motion tostrlke
from the proposed rules the clause
which permits the speaker to decide
w tat is a dilatory motion was discussed
a it-netn pro ana con ana w&s nnally
rejected. An amendment was then
offered which put it In the power of
any member who Is in charge o' any
proposition on the floor to propose dot

visable to do so.

THE NEW TREASURER. J
Dr. J. M. Applewhite, of Corrallis,
was appointed treasurer, July 17th, to
All vacancy caused by the death of A.
R. Shipley. There were no funds In his
predecessor's bands to turn over, all
having been kept by him with Hamil

10th. They had on hand at that bank
$18,000 of state mosey when they

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE.
Judge John Burnett of Corvallis Is
associate counsel for the state, with
Judge Boise of Balem, of the board of
regents. On August 0th Dr. Apple
white was instructed to demand the
sum duo the state, $18,000, of Mr.
Job, who had been absent from the
city for three weeks before that on a
hunting expedition. He said he bad
no money. This was a preliminary
step to beginning an action and with
out doubt the state can win a suit and
possibly get in as a preferred creditor.
A state law says a person using public
money without right shall be deemed
guilty of felony. This is In the Code
of Oregob and applies to such cases.
While the state might win its suit
against the bauk, unless It oan be mado
to appear that there was a larceny and
and that the bankers will be sent ever

can get no more than other creditors or
