Excerpt from The Silver Bills: Interview With Francis G. Newlands of the National Silver Committee in the Washington Post, April 30, 1890; Is Opposed to the Caucus and Windom Bills; Editorial Comment; Open Letter From Francis G. Newlands to Secretary Windom, May 11, 1890; Will the Admi

The consideration of the silver question has aroused a deep interest in the various propositions before Congress, and the opinions of all those who have made a study of the important suggestions regarding legislation on the subject, and are competent to discuss the same, are eagerly sought. One of this class is Mr. Francis G. Newlands, of Nevada, a gentleman who is well known in Washington, and who was one of the delegates to the silver conference recently held at St. Louis. He is also a member of the National Silver Committee, an outgrowth of the St. Louis silver convention, which has been in session in Washington at various times during the present session of Congress, and which has recently had under consideration the pending legislation.

It was understood that Mr. Newlands is not favorably impressed with the bill formulated by the Republican caucus, and is fearful that his party is about to commit itself to a policy that will prove disastrous in the end. When a Post reporter called at Mr. Newlands' residence last evening, he stated in a very frank manner that he did not approve of the caucus measure, and had no objection to stating his reasons for opposing it, as his views were shared by the National Committee appointed by the St. Louis Convention.

"The bimetallists, erroneously called the silver men, are not satisfied with the bill agreed upon by the conference committee of the Senate and House for the increased purchase of silver," said Mr. Newlands. "and they hold that the only way to settle the question definitely, wisely and for all time, is to open the mints of the country to the free coinage of silver just as they are open for the free coinage of gold, and to establish by law the number of grains of gold and silver which shall constitute the gold and silver dollar respectively.
