Coinage Men Make a Firm Redemption of Silver Certificates in Lawful Committees AYarit More lime SALT LAKIJ TRIUNE BUREATT 517 Fourteenth Street D April 12 1SOO There was another conference this morning between the members of the Republican Silver Coinage Committee appointed from the members of the House the other day but no conclusion was reached Senator Wiudoin was heard in the conference which was behind closed doors and he explained the effect which the proposition would have if it became a law to make the certi ficates issued upon deposits of silver bullion re deemable in lawful money of the United holding that tho silver certificates should bo re deemable alone in the bullion which they repre sent Mr Garter of Montana a member of the con ference committee who is very keenly interested in the subject on account of the large constitu ency interest involved says that they are en deavoring to perfect the Windom bill so as to eliminate as nearly as possible the objection able features which stand in tho way of absolute free coinage He takes the position that the sil ver mines do not demand that the whole country shall be compelled to pay tribute to them by giv ing more than the marketprice for silver but in common with the majority of the American people they demand a more proper and liberal recognition than the original Windom bill proposes The propo sition is to have silver bullion deposited at tho market price with the proviso that certificates shall be issued for the bullion deposited and the certificates issued shall be redeemable in lawful money of the United States instead of bullion certificates reodemable only in silver bullion Mr Carter argues that this would make tho cer tificates substantially equal with gold and would at the same time effectually hold the American production until the Treasury dealt it out to the people in coin at one dollar for grains ns provided in the Coinage act Itis probable that the Silver Conference Com mittee will at the caucus of tho Republicans on Monday evening ask for further time in which to consider this question Tues day or Wednesday evening there will be a joint conferencobotwoen the House and Senate Silver Committees SKOKBTATIY AVIXDOJfS VIEWS WASHINGTON April Associated The Republican caucus committee haying under consideration the question of on the silver question had another today The subject was thoroughly discussed with a viewto arriving at some common ground upon winchall can stand VVindom was be fore the committee by Invitation and remained about two hours engaged in discussion not disposed to intrude upon tho but expressed Ihimself willing to accept the of the measure reported by the House The session of the committee then an adjournment wiis taken un til Moivity morning 7NovotG was taken oa any proposition and no conclusion reached The delay in arriving at an agreement appears to be caused by the insistence ot the extreme silver men upon absolute free coinage The conservative element favors the House bill and there is a leaven of restrictive feeling afc work section of the House bill particularly at tacked by the silver men is that making the treasury notes issued in payment for bullion re deemable in bullion They argued that the effect of this would be to pile up bullion in the treas ury and give warrant for the demand of the radi eal farmers1 element tor Government warehouses in which their agricultural products maybe stored and Government notes issued thereon They want the treasury notes redeemable in law fulmoney which may be procured by coining the bullion purchased On this point Secretary Windom contented himself with reiterating his preference for the House provision He also ex pressed regret that tho committee had stricken out of his bill the provision giving him discre tion ary authority to suspend bullion purchases DEMANDS OF THE SILVER SENATORS The members of the Republican Silver Com mittee have not had a meeting since Thursday night and the indications are that they will wait until the House caucus announces their conclusions upon tho subject That committee consists of Senators Merrill AJlison Aldrich and Hiscock the six Republican members 6f theCommittee on Finance and Davis Mitchell McMillan Maudcrson Platt Pierce and Teller Tho silver men on this com mitteeare contending for free coinage ol1 the bullion produced in tho United States and of Mexican ore smelted in the United States refineries They say tho entire amount produced in the United States and Mexico as shown by the statistics of the Treasury Bepartment is ounces au ntmlly all but ounces being of native This entire amount they claim is not as great at piesent values as the Secretary is required to purchase by the terms of the Jones bill That bill requires to purchase monthly silver bullion to tho value of but they admit that the effect of the passage of the bill would be to increase the value of silver Incase they are unable to secure aiitnijog from uhe committee more favorable to them than the Jones bill the silver men will insist ona sub stantial increase of the paper currency of the jountiy There are several suggestions
