Measure Indorsed . by Demo
cratic Caucus Successful
54 TO 34 IS PASSAGE VOTE
Hitchcock Measure, Urged as Sub For
Currency Bill. Given Creditable Sup
' port, 44 to 41 -CM I 8ervice Ignored.
The ' administration currency bill
was passed In the senate by a vote of
54 to 34.
The senate adopted, as a substitute
for - the house - bill, the . measure
framed by the Democratic Benate- cau
cus, which Is considered satisfactory
to President Wilson.
The Democrats voted solidly for the
measure. Senator Poindexter, Pro
gressive, and six Republicans Joined
the Democratic majority In- the final
Immediately after the announcement
was made that the bill had passed the
senate named nine conferees to act
on behalf of the senate with a con
ference committee of the house to ad
Just the differences between the sen
ate and house bills.
When the vote on the currency bill
was announced there was enthusiastic,
even uproarious applause on the Dem
ocratic side and in the galleries.
Secretary McAdoo was on the floor
of the senate and Joined In the Jubila
tion. He occupied a chair on the floor
between Senators Owen and HitA'i
cock. In the reserved gallery were
Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, Miss Eleanor
Wilson and Secretary Tumulty, all of
whom seemed as phased as anybody.
There was a surprisingly close vote
on the bill offered by Senator Hitch
cock of Nebraska as a sub for the
measure. The Hitchcock bill was sent
to the senate by the five Republicans
who make up the minority of the
banking and currency committee and
by Senator Hitchcock. It was defeat
ed, 44 to 41. All of the Republicans
and Senator Poindpxter. the Progres
sive, voted for It. The forty-three
votes caBt against it were by Demo
crats. There was one tie vote recorded In
the closing hours of the consideration.
It was on an amendment offered by
Senator Brandagee of Connecticut re
quiring that all appointments made by
the' federal reserve board shall be
made under the civil service law. Vice
President Marshall voted in the nega
tive, thus Wplng the appointments
out of the civil service law and making
them the spoils of the Democrats.
Immediately following this vote Sen
ator Jones of Washington offered an
nmendment providing that nothing In
the act should be construed as to pre
vent the president from placing these
employes within the classified service
after they had been selected. Sena
tor Jones, who Is a Republican, insist
ed that this amendment was a neces
sary complement of the bill, which
had made the appointments the prey
of the spoilsmen. But nearly all of
the Democrats voted for It with the
result that the amendment received
63 votes and was carried in the midst
of hilarity on the Democratic side.
Its effect will be to permit Presi

been filled by Democrats to cover

through the senate marks, the second
notable victory for President Wilson.

Mr. Burleson is considering whether
this bill should be endorsed by the ad
ministration or whether another meas

Mr. Burleson contends that the gov
ernment already has legislative
authority .to take over the telegraph
and telephone lines. He Insists that
this authority Is contained In a statute
passed by congress In 1866. Of
course, though, further action would
be necessary by congress to authorize
the necessary bond issue.
Mr. Burleson reports the postal serv

Southern Delegation to Next Republi

A new basis of apportionment to
govern the selection of delegates to
Republican national conventions was
adopted by the Republican national
committee In session in Washington.

of reapportionment providing for four
delegates at large from each state,
one from each congressional district
and one additional from each district
where tTie total Republican vote was
35 per cent or more of the total vote
cast. No district, however, would
have more than two delegates, states
having con.-.i pssnicn-at-large to be en
titled to one', vofe for each.
Territorir-'a and the District of Co

The plan provides also that It shall
