The democratlo committee members

Tho supporters of the administration

and argument to win over three or four
opponents of tho measure among tin;
democrats of the committee," have decided
to proceed without them and allow those
dissatisfied with the measure to carry
their fight to tho houso caucus. This
will throw Into the caucus the entire
fight oer tho so-called insurgent amend
ments providing for "cotton, corn and
wheat and currency," as framed by Rep
resentative Henry of TeSaVi and Repre
sentative Ragndale oi " South Carolina.
Those amendments, with the other In
surgent proposition, undoubtedly will be
voted down by the conference of the
committee members by about, eleven to
three. This vote would riot bo sufficient
to overcome the vote of. the Insurgent
democrats and the minor members In tho
full committee. Therefore the measure
will bo taken directly to the caucus.
Today's entire session of the confer

the proceedings of tho meetings should
be made, public. After considerable argu

Evring declares that Dr. Currle obtained
tho loan of the manuscripts tn 1797 when
