Washington, Jan. in. The calendar of
the house of lepresentntlves is Mill
rather meagre In impoitant hills, so that
theie does not promlhc to he a heavy
prossuic of business during the coining
week. Monday is the tegular suspen
sion day, but theie are few moasuies
likely to bo passed by suspension of the
lilies. The uigent deficiency appiopii
ntlon bill 'will occupy most of the time
dining the llrst few thus of the week.
It carries, a total or SIG.700,000, which is
rather large for a deliclc-ncy ineiisuie,
and It Is expected that two dnjs will be
occupied In Its eonsideiallon. 13eyond
this theie is piactie.illy no piogiamme
for the week, as the bills leady for con
sideration are not of sutllclent import
ance to secuie definite time in advance,
ecept in the case of the Hill bill, for
the c-xchangeabilltv of silvei and gold.
It will be some time befoie opinion Is
sufficiently matured on this measuic to
induce the leadens to set u time for con
sldeintlon. In the Senate.
The Philippine quest Ion will be pie
clpltated in the .senate tomouoiv, when
the committee on the Philippines, which
has had the house Philippine tailff bill
under consiileiatlon, expects to leport
the measure. The bill, with Its com
mittee amendments, w 111 be sent to the
pi inter, and Senatoi Lodge, chalinun
nt the committee, will give notice of his
intention to call it up on the following
day and ask for its continued consider
ation until finally disposed of.
Theie Is a geneial aciinleseeiice of
Republican senatois in this pi ogi amine.
Theie aie other important men sines to
be piesented at the pioper time by aei
mlnlhtiation senatois. but the present
ngieement Is to pass the Philippine bill
(list, as being of the most Immediate
A long discussion ot the bill Is ex
pected by the Republicans and piom
ietl by the Democrats. The Demo
cratic leading say they do not expi et
to be able to deteat the bifl, and dis
claim all intention to delay n ole un
necessarily, but they say fiankly that
they consider that it affouls an op
poi tunlty for the pies-entatlon of their
view of the enthe Philippine, question,
which tney cannot tiftmd to let pass.
Renatoi Lodge will open the discus
sion with a biiet' speech on Tuesdav,
in which lie will discuss the meilts of
the bill and also the necessity for eni
ly action. lie will be followed bj some
member of the Demon atio rqpiesenln
1lou on tlv (ominlttec, who will out
line, the Demociatic position. He, in
tllin, will be followed by other Demo
ciatic senatois. Many of the senatois
on the Demoiratlc side aie expected
to be heaid befoie final action shall be
seemed. Indeed, trie picdlctlon Is
Jieely made that a vote will not be
obtained within a month. Senator
Lodge's plan Is to hold the measuic to
the front, to the exclusion of all other
business when the bill Is once made
the unfinished business,
Ship Subsidy Bill.
Tomouow' Senator Frye piobably
will lepoit the ship subsidy bill, but ho
will not attempt to secuie consldoin

ON COINAGE EXCHANGE
Believe Bill to Exchange Gold for
Legal Tender Silver Would Cieate
an Endless Chain on Reserve.
By Ktcluilie Wile from The As-odatul l'lc.
Washington, Jan. 19. The Deinociat
Ic mcmbeis of the house committee on
coinage, weights and measures have
agieed on a minoiity lepoit on the
bill dliecting the secietaiy of the
tieasuiy "to pchanife gold foi letkil
tender silver dollnis," and the lepoit
will be piesented to the house tomoi
uiw by Mr. Shnfiotli.
The lepoit lakes the position that
the passage of the bill is ceitain to
pioduce lluantial distui buncos. The
following1 genci.il pioposltlon Is laid
"Our government has neer conced
ed the light to tin- holder of sitter
dollais to demand fiom the Iteasuty
gold theiefoi, nor to the holder ot
gold to demand sllor dollars tbeiefor.
Such demands alwajs hae been le
fused at the tieasuiy. It Is the notes
and bonds of the go eminent that .no

option of the holder.
The lollow lng leasons whj sink a

Flist, It will lequiie a l.uge Inciease
of the gold teseixe of the tieasuiy for
if the obligations upon a leseno are
luci cased the leseive should be cor
lespondlngly enlaiged. If It requlies
$150,000,000 of gold to act as a leseive
for the ledemptlon of $"lfi,000,0oo of
United States notes called gieenbacks
and $40,'JS l.osii of tieasuiy notes issued
under tlie Sheinun ail, will It not take
at least $u00,000,00u In gold, saj.s the le
poit, to act as a nseite when the
f,"i30,7u.Mil7 of slher dollais and slher
cei tllkaU-s ate made a direct chatge
upon the leserw?
Second, It will cieate a new endless
chain upon thu gold icserve of the
tieasuiy and theieby plunge the gov
ernment deeper Into the banking busi
ness. If the endless chain upon the treas.
my caused by tin ledemptiou and ic
Issue of Kieepbaci;-" Is a continual dialn
upon the cold lesenc and a soveie
stialn upon the goxeintnent, how much
mote of a dialn and stialn will the
Si !0,000,000 of nt-w obligations upon that
leserve Impose ?
The go ei anient now hns the power
to call an absolute hall to a laid upon
Its gold leseive by Impounding the
BieenbaeUs and .tieasuiy notes, but If
sliver Is made ledeetnable In gold, It
cannot do so until It impounds also
the $;30,000,(i00 ot silver dollais and nil
's er eei llllcates. When theio Is a inn
on the tieasuiy for gold. It Is the sal
tation ot' (oiuniei.it and the icseno
to have lu circulation a' cuiieucy whiih
Imposes no fui titer demand on that
metal. The bill will plunge the guv.
eminent deeper into-the banking busi
ness. Thltd-lt will facilitate the expm ta

As the $;!fct!,uQ0.fiii0 of our cuireiiey
