Watchius Interviewed m da to the
outlook and got his opinion of Mr.
Crisp, who he has "known well for some
years. ' ;
Mr. Henderfcon is looking well and
is more hopeful of good resultr from
this session than from any previous
one.' He will return to Washington
about the 4th of Jannary.
Of Mr. Crisp he said:
Mr. Crisp is a very conservative
man and of great prudence and evenly
balanced. I think he will make an
excellentSpeaker And will treat every
body fairly. He is a good parliamen
tarian and while, possibly, not a man of
as much ability as Mr. Mills, I think
he will make a more popular presiding
officer and will give great satisfaction
to the country. He is in favor of the
free coinage of silver, and I feel sure
the committee on coinage, weights
and measures will contain a majority
of membirajBho favor such views.
Mr own opinion is that a free coinaire
n'fl will pass the House by a lanre ma-
ority and I rather think will pass the
Senate also. It is understood that
President Harrison will veto such a
measure. There is a prevailing im
pression, however, that a compromise
may ultimately be reached whereby a
bill for the free coinage of American
silver wi.l not be vetoed, if sent to the
president in that form. This is" not
what the friends of free coinage desire,
but if such a bill can be enacted into
law, it will practically amount to free
coinage, as it is not likely nny foreign
ouiuon win oe sent te tnis country for
coinage, s the annnasupply of the
foreign bullion is not equal to the for
