It will be enlarged so as to permit the Issnahco of'^^ hill Ion dollars of circulating notes instead of M billion dollars^ as preaerib-^ ?d by the bill originally introdnced.- There are several other important imendments practically agreed jipoii. although none of these has been offer* d in form to be adopted. The ebar-1 icter of the bill will remain as jorig- '.nally drafted. Two sessions were held today by he finance committee. This after- ioon the first reading and disctsaion -,r the bi'l was finished. It was Uien lacided to adjourn miiil next Monday. . 'n the meantime the amendments tgreed upon as desirable will be 1rafte<l and formally offered. It Is lelleved that a report can be made o the senate within three or ifoar lays thereafter. Cortelyou Preparing an Exetisa. When the committee meets Monday he information promised by Secre- nry Corte'you will be ready. Beniat- ir Aldrich talked with the secretary >ver the telephone today concerning he failure of the Treasury depart- ^mnt to have the report ready yes- •erday. Secretary Cortelyou explain- , od that the letter of transmittal vhich had been prepared was not suf- ''ciently comprehensive and ° he held he report until the letter could be rewritten. It is understood that tha ''-Iter will embrace a defense of him* •?lf on account of some of the stacks made on him in the senate. In the tantative agreements reach- ' d in the committee it is practically ett'ed that if the amount of circular •'on that may be taken out Is doobl- d thru the manner of the taxatloa 'ill be changed. In order to insure he retirement ofi this circulation the" ax would be made progresslTe with < maximum of 8 or 10 per cent. The •entiment of the cfunmlttee Is in fSar- T of retaining railroad bonds as one •\ the classes of securities that aiay •e used In taking out emergency elr- ulatlon. To Increase County Bond LImita. The limitation of emergency dreo- . 'ation on state, county and municipal >onds to 75 per cent of their aurk^ alue wonld be probably Increased to ; . ^0 per cent. In the opinion of the ; •nmmittee this change should he i nade. It is probabid also that the ' onds of all cities and counties will •'^ e accepted regardless of number of . inhabitants, if otherwise the securl- ; les meet the conditions prescribed.* The bill as drafted, makes a Umlta^ . 'Ion of 20,000 inhabitants. In the ; 3outh and West there are seTcral cites and towns which could meet all. if the conditions except as to population. On the question of increaaing the amount of circulation authorized the committee is unanimous. It was *own that in the recent flurry 241 nilllon dollars of additional drcnla- t.Ion was taken out, and that about 150 mll'ion dollars in clearing honae certificates was issned. It is the plan )f the committee to enact a law Thlch would make it possible to Is- ;ue currency that would retire all oC 'hat circulation.
