More JLijjlit Hopes of the Free Coinage Men Expediting Ocean Mails Cannon Op poses Appropriations for Monuments Capital Miscellany WASHINGTON Dec The senate caucus financial committee held a meet ing yesterday and agreed upon a bill to be reported to ttie full caucus last night The principal points of the bill are as follows The secretary of the treasury is to be au thorized to purchase in the year 1891 in addition to the amount now authorized by law 2OCOCCIO ounces of silver at the mar ket price not exceeding Slfor 37125 grains of pure silver and to issue treasury notes therefor as required in the law July ISOObut not more than to be pur chased in any one month Whenever the amount of nairlonal bank notes outstand ing IH reduced to less than the amount now outstanding is about f79 000000 the secretary of the treasury is to purchase silver in the amount of all na tional bank motes retired and to issue treasury notes therefor and if silver can not be obtained at the price named above the secretary Is to issue greenbacks to take the place of the retired national bank notes Ttondu and National Banks The recoinage of the trade dollars in the authorized under existing law is to be made compulsory The national banks are to be authorized to issue bank notes to the full amountof bonds deposited instead of to per cent of that amount as now authorized by law The compul sory requirement of deposit of bouds by national banks is to be limited to for each bank whatever its capital stock The secretary of the treasury is to be authorized to issue in a bum or sums not exceeding 8100000000 coupon or registered bonds of the United States in such form as he may prescribe and of denominations of or some multiple of that sum bear ing interest semiannually at 2 per cent perannum to be used in the redemption of the outstanding bonds of the United States Secretary AVindoms Proposition Secretary Windom submitted a proposi tion to the caucus committee yesterday afternoon in vrritiug He favored the issue of an interconvertible bond drawing 2 per cent interest annually to run for thirty years the amount of these bonds to be is sued to equal the bonded debt of the United States He favored the purchase of 15000000 ciunces of silver the silver to be confined to the American product The interconvertible bonds he proposed should be interchangeable for greenbacks and the bonds while they are in the treasury for bank circulation should draw no inter CONSIDEREDYTHE CAUCUS A ami Xothing Definite Agreed Upon The Republican senators met in caucus at the residence of Senator McMillan at night and remained in session for more tban three hours They adjourned to meet again Wednesday night without coming to a definite conclusion on any of the prop ositions discussion but after indi cating the probable fate of several of them Sherman laid before the caucus the prop osition of tlui caucus committee and the proposition E Secretary Windom The caucus proposition included a mentioned in the that when silver shall have remained at par for a any holder of silver may bring it to thi mint and have it coined into silver at the expense of the gov ernment Opposition to Roml Issues The caucus considered both the proposi tion of Secretary Windom and the propo sition of the caucus committee at length The discussion turned principally on the proposition to issue 6100000OGO of 2 per cent bonds The committee proposition differs from the proposition of the secre tary on this point in that the secretary wishes the bonds to be made intercon vertible while the proposition of the committee is that these bonds be used for the retirement of bonds now in circula tion It was stated that the secretary would be willing to accept a fifteen year bond or a thirty year bond Arguments were made against the proposition to issue bonds on the ground that their issue would in no way relieve the situation On the other hand it was said the pro posed issue would increase the national debt the Test Votes Indicated There were several test votes taken on motions associated with the bond clause which indicated very clearly that a laige majority oC senators present were opposed to the issue of any bonds The proposed purchase of 12000000 ounces of silver was discussed and motions were made but not put to a vote to increase the amount to be purchased to 15000000 ounces and to sub stitute for this proposition a provision for the increase of the monthly purchases of silver under the present law from 4500000 ounces to 7500000 ounces There was a difference of opinion when the caucus ad journed as to the probable fate of this proposition to purchase silver Views of Free Coinage Men One freecoinage senator said that there was little doubt that if anything was agreed to it wonld be the purchase of 12 000000 ounces while another freecoinage senator said that he believed the caucus would agree to increase the regular month ly purchases It was argued by the silver senatora in the caucus that the senate must eventually come to free coinage if not at this session then at the next session of congress and they urged that the sen ate accept the inevitable and agree to free coinage now Will Likely Ce Agreed to There seems but little doubt that the proposition LO purchase silvpr rivi issue treasury notes on it to nation al tank notes retired will ire ipreed to and also the proposition to hav free coin age if silver remains at par forayear although the advocates of free coinage say that the later proposition is of value oulyas indicating the sentimeatin favor of free coinage They siy that if free coinage is had it will be by direct legislation New Parcel Post Convention WASHINGTON CITY Dec parcels post oomvnroM i ken cnneltidefl

Separated Par fair Commissioners Ex pres4 Indi ana Items ISTJIASAPOLIS Dec pressure is being brought to bear upon the governor to induce him to appoint a Dem ocrat as the successor of Judge Mitchell deceased upon the supreme bench and cogent reasons are urged for the appoint ment The Republicans who favor a Dem ocrat say that Mitchell was just elected to the position and as the other four judges are Republicans common decency de mands tlie presence of one Democrat on the bench The governor and his party have been demanding a representative Upon the benevolent boards and an effort will be made this winter to secure legisla tion to that eud One Good Turn for Another It is urged that the governor cannot hope lor the Republicans to gain anything from a Democratic legislature if he makes the supreme court entirely partisan by ap pointing a Republican as Mitchells suc cessor It is also urged that the standing of the court is higher when it is politically divided and that the governor should be liberal enough to give the Democrats D representative on it Candidates for tlhe Place The friends of Robert McBride of Elk hart are trying to induce the governor to appoint him MrMcBride was

Bard of Goshen Samuel Bayless of Frankfoit William P Johnson of Valparaiso and Judge D P Vincent of Lafayette are also candidates Revision of the Constitution The sentiment in favor of a revision of Indianas constitution is growing through out the state and the coming legislature will probably take some step in the mat ter It has now been more than forty ore years since the constitution was
