careful canvass of tho Senate and admit that when a vote is taken on the Silver bill tho friends of free coinage will probably bo ablo to carry tho Senate If thoy should put a free coinage eliuiso to the bill and send It to the House It is possible that a motion to concur might carry tho scheme to got tho into a conference committee would be frustrated Thoro Is no doubt that tho members ot tho

that he be lieved tho questions obsolete Tho omission to ascertain tho truth was as reprehensible as to have disregarded it after It had ooen ascertained The committee does not share the opinion that
