position in which tho Republicans In tho House flnd thonsolvcs tn consequence of tho passage of a free coinage sliver bill by tho Sonuto will bo overcome for tho present by reference of tho measure to tho Coinage Weights and Measures Committee indeed it was said tout tho Speaker had Into this evening ordered that tho bill bo re ferred to that committee Representative Conger chairman of tho Coinage Committee had several Interviews with Rood during tho day and supported by other members of tho House urged that under the rules the only proper thing for tho Speaker to do was to make the reference mentioned Conger at 11 oclock tonight said that he did not boiievo Rood had decided tlio question though ho might have done so Under tho rules tho reference oould bo made at any time and nothing more would bo necessary than tho Speakers order It Is bollevod by tho friends of tho original House bill that this roicroneo would result In securing tlmo within which to reach a com promise basis upon
