ONE MAN'S MYTHICAL REASON.
After Several Hours He Remembered
His Dinner Engagement.
Dinner had been icady and waiting
20 minutes. The wife of the tardy
guest was very much embarrassed.
Just to think that her husband was
so rude as to be late at a dinner en

waiting! After a while the belated

Congress meets again in December
and then tho legislators will be greeted
by the grent outlay of cash. If there
should be a panic this fall, which is
far from likely, oillclals declare, this
great amount of emergency currency
would bo delivered to the strick
en districts within a few hours and it is
believed tho trouble would end with
tho appearance of the cash.
' Up to August 1 only ono emergency
currency association had been formed,
ihut soon organizations began to ma
teriallze all over tho country and the
(interest In the now act was heightened
(to a great extent. Tho banks of the
(District of Columbia had their at tides

tary of tho treasury about the middle
"of July and to them belongs the honor
of being the tlrst members or an or

Tho banks In Now York and other
financial centors were not disposed to
fully commit themselves pending a de
termination of the question whether a hank Join
ing an association could withdraw rrom it after
complying with all the requirements of the law.
The, treasury oillclals regarded this question as
purely academic hut they took the matter tin
der consideration and a decision was reached on
this point in a very short time. Tho act Itself
is entirely silent on the subject
The proposition of putting out such a great
amount of currency was ono which lielil tho bu
lean of printing and engraving in its throes for
ninny anxious niont'hs, for It was pointed out
when tho measure llnaily passed congress after
a long tight that while it was decidedly improb

of tho emergency currency act.
Most readers of congressional news In the dally
papers remember well and followed closely tho
struggle which took place in both the house and
senatu coincident to tho passage of the bill. The
senate refused to accept tho Vieeland bill, mnnu
factuted in the lower branch, while tho house of
representative could see nothing but evil things
in the Aldrich measure that Is, tho majority.
Speaker Cannon of tho house paid several visits
to President Roosevelt at tho White House. Tho
executive Insisted upon work being done by con
gress, If it were only this law. Pinnlly tho
opposition forces met In caucus and then thero
was another caucus, most of the points In dispute
being settled. Tho bill passed tho house with

place and spoke for quite a whllo longer.
All this wns done to keep Senator Aldrich and
his friends from putting on pnssago tho compro

that the bill would pass and so the opposition's
Idea In the beginning was to keep on talking until
midnight March :!, 1009, in shifts of eight hours
Whether It was by prearrangement or by acci
dent, row will over know, but tho tact remains
that when one of tho llllbuster aides neglected
Ills cue, an Aldrich supporter Jumped Into the
breach, secured the lloor and mndo tho motion to
put tho bill on passage. It passed and ended one
of the most spectacular llllbustors which legisla
