Finance Committee has created a genuine sensation among the inbiiomctalllsts who aro shocked that what they consider a radical moasuro should have received the sanction of tho Senate Com mittee Senators Merrill Sherman Mc Plicrsou and Beck arc the members It is understood who voted the bill Tho silver men while protesting that the measure does not go far enough yet profess 7iiuch

will bo accepted as par tially satisfactory is a stepIn tho right direction Tho increased purchases of bullion and tho issuance of certificates thereon which certificates are made legal timder is an important point gained While the moasuro cannot bo culled a radical ono It Is radical as compared with what could possibly have scoured consideration iivo years ago It shows that tho silvor interests

that in splto of sotno objections it was a move iu tho right direction I am inclined to boliovo that measure may give moro satisfaction to in terests It Is not a frco coinage measure but ifc goes beyond what wo now havo and its certain result will bo to advance tho prico of Tho homo product aud to decrease tho gap between tho twO metals It is a compromise moas uro It stands between two extremes and while it may havo some of tho weak features and probably has of a compromise measure it is iu ray judgment au acl vanco over previous legislation I boliovo it will bo accepted by Congress as a fair and beneficial act oflegislation and bollovo that it should secure TJIK BUILIWCNO BILL REDUCED WASHINGTON Fob Sonato Cotn rtiitteo on Buildings has re tailed tlio Salt Lake public build ing
