house that the iilver bill adopted by the Republican cau cus and now being debated in the house will become a law in its present form with the possible exception that the sec tion providing for the purchase of 000 of bullion per month will be changed so that it will provide for the purchase cf 4500000 ounces The feature of the bill that will be tho source of much contro versy it is believed la that providing that the holder of a bullion certiflcfcte may de mand its redemption in either coin or bullion with discretionary power given to the secretary of the treasury to refuse to redeem in bullion Idea Will Be Retained There U a constantly growing belief that the bill will pass the house intact but that the bullion feature will be struck out in the senate This will necessitate a con ference between the two houses which it is believed will finally agree to leave the bullion feature in tho bill The bullion feature is advocated by Secretary Win dom who of course represents the views of the president and the senate will be al most obliged to agree to it if the bill is to receive the executive signature It Is tho Lending Question The silver debate again occupied almost the total attention of both houses yester day In the house Lind of Minnesota ar gued that an addition to the circulation would advance prices and lift the agricul tural depression Ho preferred free coin age but would vote for the caucus bill as a relief in the right direction Walker of Massachusetts said he was sick of the rot that was talked in tho house Low prices did nob cause business depression and there never was n time when it took BO little labor for a farmer to pay his debtB Prices had been going down for 100 years and tho demonetization of silver had not had the slightest effect on the Call Money Wits only an incident in economy The world would not suffer an iota it all the money were wiped out in one day Opinions of Other Kerr of Iowa said tho caucus bill would result in rernonetization and was n long step in the right direction Townseud o Colorado would be satisfied with nothing but free coinage neither would Dorsoy of Nebraska who condemned Secretary Win dom for not coining the maximum poi month under the Bland act He woulc have none of bullion redemption McKao of Arkansas wanted immediate free coin ago and said that Cleveland was all wrong in his policy iu regard to silver Parret of Indiana favored bimetallism Lane o Illinois opposed the pending bill Shively of Indiana declared that legislation hat depressed the value of silver Hoi man gave his version oE the history of

In Writ In Very Plain English WASHINGTONCITY June presi dent Yesterday responded to the senate resolution of May 20 requesting informa tion concerning the alleged landing of an armed force from theUnited States reve nue cutter McLane at Cedar Keys Fla and the alleged entry of the houses of citizens by force and their alleged pursuit of citizens ol the United States in the sur rounding country It will be observed saysthe uresident that the United States collector of customs at Cedar Keys had been dri van from his office and from the town and the administration of the customs laws of the United States at that port suspetided by the violent demonstra tions and throats of one Cottrell the mayor of tha place assisted by his town marshal Mitchell Protection of United Stntos Officials If it had been necessary as I do not think it be in any case for a United States officer to appeal to the local author ities for immunity from violence in the exercise of his duties the situation at Cedar Keys did not suggest or encourage such an appeal for those to whom the ap peal would have been addressed were themselves the lawless instruments of the threatened violence The means used in this case were iu my opinion lawful and necessary the officers do not seem to have intruded upon any private right in executing ithe warrants placed in their hands A Grim Commentary for n Faet That the officers of the law should noi have the full sympathy of every good citi in their efforts to bring these men to merited punishment is the matter of sur prise and regret It is a very grim com mentary upon the condition of social or der at Cediir Keys that only a womanwho had ns she says in her letter no son or husband who could be mads the victim of his malice had the courage to file charges against this man who was then holding a subordinate place in the customs service Baffled by the Citizens Accompanying tha presidents letter are papers showing that tha United States marshal and the officers of the revenue Hitter McLane wore victimized by the peo ple who foiled them several times in their fforts to capture Cottrell and that no louses were searched except where per mission
