Heart burnings and jealousies engendered by Competition. Mills and the speaker other matters at the capital. Washington. Dec. the session the House was very Brief it afforded material for a Good Deal talk and its importance overshadowed the proceedings at the other end the Capitol although nominations to High positions were sent in. The composition the first great committee was made Public today when the speaker announced that the committee rules would consist the speaker Mcmillin Tennessee. Or. Catchings Mississippi . Reed Maine and . Burrows Michigan. The importance this committee can be mde stood when it is explained that it not Only frames the rules and regulations under which the House transacts , but it is to that body what the rudder and the engines Are to a ship. It not Only guides legislation but it also sends it ahead keeps it stationary lets it lag behind As it May item proper it is the committee rules which decides the time to he allotted to the consideration a particular Bill and the Way in which certain measures shall be brought up. It is True that the committee can Only make recommendations and that it remains with the House to act the recommendations the committee but it is so rare that the majority refuse to act the report the majority members the committee that for All practical purposes the dictum the rules committee is Law. The chairman the committee is always the speaker Aud while . Carlisle was speaker the members his own party the committee were the chairmen the committees ways and moans and appropriations. Or. Reed As speaker followed the same policy. Prior to . Carlisles time however the majority members were not necessarily those two chairmen. Crisp by his action today has refused to be hound by the Carlisle Reed procedure Aud has returned to the old order things. Tho appointment messes. Mcmillin and Catchings does not mean that these gentlemen will respectively head the leading committees the House although when the committee was first announced that impression was quietly formed. But speaker Crisp said to the Globe representative after the adjournment Tho House that there was no significance to be attached to the fact Mcmillin and Catchings going the committee except that they were selected for their Peculiar qualifications for the work required them that was the Only reason which governed him. The Peculiar qualifications to which . Crisp referred Iii the Case . Mcmillin consist in the fact that he is one the Best parliamentarians the democratic Side the House a fluent. Vigorous and Over ready debater and always ready to take the floor when a parliamentary question is to be discussed a precedent cited. He shares honors with Springer in this respect. Catchings was appointed because he was judge crisps Chiel Campaign manager in the speaker ship tight and during that time allowed in a marked degree that he w As the possessor unusual executive abilities and As an organizer there Are few men his Superior. Catchings is a Small Man with a Long Reddish Brown heard. He is gentle in voice methods and actions. While the speaker ship fight was at its highest to was quiet and As Serene As a chunk ice a cold Day. He was never once flurried and no matter How bad Tim reports Whir ii were brought to him his imperturbable manner never forsook him for a moment. His organizing Powers were shown in the Way Iii w Bien lie was Able to hold his forces n line. Personally he is very popular and just the right Man to smooth Over difficult tics w Hen they arise and make it Plain sailing for the committee even though the committee in arranging the business the session should have to step some members pet Corn.

Tho anti Silver republicans with the votes the free coinage republicans had passed the act As a Compromise measure. The act provided for the redemption Treasury notes in Gold and Silver Coin and it was the a Tut the Secretary the Tress Ury to Coin enough Silver to provide for such redemption. There was no warrant Law he said for the Sale Bonds to buy Gold for the purpose redeeming Treasury notes issued under the act 1890. The redemption act 1875 had authorized the Sale Bonds for the redemption greenbacks outstanding the 1st january 1879, and for no other purpose and there was no reason to suppose that sufficient Gold would come into the Treasury for the redemption the notes issued under the act 1890. Consequently they had to he redeemed in Silver. He contended that the act 1890 amounted to a pledge that the government would maintain free coinage. It has expressly declared in that act that it was the established policy the United states to maintain the two metals a parity with each other upon the present Legal ratio. The act referred to the parity Between the two metals not the parity Between Tho coined dollars a Par with Gold dollars and by a Promise redemption Iii Gold.

There wins hut one Way to maintain the parity Between the two metals which was free and unlimited coinage both. The Silver in the Silver Dollar and the Gold in the Gold Dollar would never be equal in value until each could be exchanged at the mint for a Dollar. Ile argued that free coinage was necessary to enlarge the basis circulation and credit. In 1873 there were $7,500,000.00 1 Gold and Silver Coin Iii the world Alloi which was Money ultimate redemption Suita dle for Banks and Public institutions. The rejection Silver had reduced the amet real Money about one half. I Here Tad been no material increase in the Gold Coin the world since Silver was de monetized. Tho Gold Coin the world did not exceed $3,760,000,000. He urged that there Wras in possibility a Hood Silver under free coinage that no Silver would return from Asia and that Europe had no Silver to spare France lie said had More than half the Legal tender Silver Europe which slur did not desire to dispose .
