CONGRESS AT WORK
Flic Naval Appropriation
A Lively Discussion in the
IHalr floes oil' Wrong1, as Ustinl-
Exclmlinpr Salacious Papers
From the .Mails In the House.
Washington, Miiv 20. In the Senate
today the oath of office was administered
by Vice-President .Morton to Carlisle as
senator from Kentucky.
Senator Sherman presented petitions
in favor of excluding from the mails the
Police Gazette and similar publications.
Plumb introduced a bill to provide for
the purchase of silver for use as lawful
money, the bill having been prepared
St. John, of New York, deferred to the
finance committee, l'lumb offered a
resolution instructing the finance com
mittee to prepare and report in connec
tion ith the tariff bill, a statement
showing the duties levied under exist
ing law, the duties as they would be
under the Houo bill and the duties
under the bill to lc reported
by the committee. The resolution was
passed. The pending question, next
taken up, was Cookroll's amendment to
strike out from the naval appropriation
bill the provision for three heavily
armed battle ships to cost four millions
each. There was a lengthy debate on
this, Cockrell commenting on the recom
mendations of the Secretary of the Navy
for the construction of a largo number
of vessels. "There is no occasion,"
said Cockrell, "for the construction
of coast defenses or for the
increase of the naval establishment. It
is well for the Senate to remember that
the surplus is already gone. When leg
islation by this Congress is finished,
there will be no .surplus, and the people
of the United States might consider
themselves fortunate if taxes did not
have to be increased.
There is no necessity for the con
struction of great battle ships.. The
American tlag is perfectly safe in every
part of the earth, and the United States
can rely on securing justice without any
manifestations of physical or visible
Voorhees said that the American peo
ple no more favored increasing the navy
and having a great standing navy than
they favored having a great standing
army, lie had taitli in the ability of the
American people to get ready for war
believer an emergency arose.
liutler spoke vigorously in favor of the
intendment and regretted that it was
nut in his power to vote for eight instead
of three buttle ship-.
He 1iom.m1 that all our difficulties
mitfht Ik" settled by negotiation or arbi
tration, but so long as human nature
s ax it i, it was unsafe to assume that
the Tinted States was in no danger of
collision with some foreign power.
Mr. lilair moved to amend the pro
viiion for three battle ships by inserting
a provision that it shall not be available
until the government of Great Britain
hall lie requested by tlie rresidcnt ;
to withdraw all her naval forces I
from American waters and to dismantle I
her naval stations on lth South and
North America and the adjacent islands,
nd shall have declined or neglected for
one year to do so.
llawley said that a proposition from
a nation'already disarmed to get Great
Britain to disarm was simply ludicrous.
While he was as much "in favor of
jeace as anybody, he did not conceive of
in any way departing from the teaching
of the Holy Scripture in favor of being
prepared against violence and gross in
itistice. There were some times in the
history of the world when, for the sake
of manhood and patriotitm, for the sake
of God and country, a people must light,
and these were days that lifted a people
out of the worship" of the almighty (fol
iar. Mr. Hale spoke of the defenseless con
dition of the 1'acille Coast, and the ex
tensive llritish works and naval stations
in British Columbia when he visited
that place last year.
lilmr's amendment was rejected, as
was also Cockrells, the latter by a vote
of :!," to 18. The bill was then passed.
Mitchell offered a resolution, which
was agreed to, instructing the committee
on pensions to report an amendment to
the pension laws, providing in a more
li'ieral manner for the widows, mi
nor children and dependent relatives
of deceased soldiers.
The Senate then adjourned.

Fanny Green and Charles Willams
spent last night in the classic shades of
the county jail.
Fanny and Charles are colored, and
tho blood of sunny Africa courses warm,
too warm, through their diiHky veins.
Fanny is a single woman, tall and
buxom and well formed, and of the com
plexion of a chunk of anthracite coal.
Charles is tall, too, and lithe, but he is
of tho nut brown color that dis
tinguishes navy plug tobacco. Charles
is moreover a married man and,
as he was formerly porter at one of
the hotels in this city, is
well known about town.
It is now a little more than a year
ago that Charles met Fanny, who was
then a domestic employed on the Gray
ranch, southeast of the city. The fact
that Charles had a wife at home did
not, seemingly, prevent him from seek
ing fresh pastures abroad and, in u few
short weeks after the acquaintance was
formed, he was milking hot love to
Fanny nt least, that is the natural
inference from results that followed.
Not many weeks ngo Fanny was dis
covered by her mother, nlso employed
at the Gray ranch, to lie in a very" in
teresting condition and very shortly
afterwards a child was born as the re
sult of her indiscretion. Then the
case was laid before the United
States grand jury, with the result that
when thnt lodv made its linal report
last week it handed in indictments
against the couple for violation of the
provisions of the Edmunds net.
They were arraigned before Judge
KibK-y yesterday and held to bail in
the sum of $200 each in default of
which amount they wero locked up.

An Exciting Finish Fight
in San Francisco.
Jack Davis Knocked Out by
A Shore, Sharp and Decisive Contest
Scieuce Proven Better Than
Mere; Brute Strength.
San Fkaxcis.co, May 20. Fifteen
hundred members of the Occidental
Club witnessed the fight to a finish be
tween Joe Choyneski, the heavy-weight
who gave Corhett such a hard and
stubborn light with skin gloves, on a
barge near Benicia about a year
ago, and Jack Davics, of Omaha,
who came here with considerable
reputation ns it rusher. The fight
was for n purse of $1,500; $250 to the
loser. Davis's previous record was
somewhat shrouded in mystery, and in
consequence the local betting men were
shy about laying much money, even at
the large odds offered, which increased
from $10 to $7, to $20 to $9 before
the men entered the ring. Ed. Grnney
and Ciias. Tellerson attended Choynski,
and Sherman and Kelleher were behind
Davis. Both men wero in tho pink of
condition. Choynski weighed 105 and
Davis 170 pounds. Frank Crockett
was referee and time was called at 9:45.
In the lirst round Davis created surprise
by his confident front, rushing
Choynski to the ropes several times.
Towards the close there was a sharp
battle at short arm range, Choynski
tripping and falling heavily.
Hound 2 Davis came up strong and
continued his rushing tactics, landing
a heavy lxdy blow which knocked
Choynski to the lloor. Then followed
furious lighting on lioth sides, Davis
showing great ttrength while Choynski
evened up matters with his superior
science and ability in getting out of the
way. At the close of the round both
were very much distressed and it was
evident the fight would be a short one.
Bound 3 The men started in without
any preliminary sparring at hard slug
ging, Davis showing up much superior
in reach. Choynski was knocked to the
lloor twice in this round, retaliating to
ward the close of the round with a hard
left in the wind, and Davis' stock was
on the rise.
Hound 4 Davis landed his left on
Choynski's mouth, knocking him again
to the lloor, and Joe rose perceptably
groggy. A clinch followed, and at the
break Davis landed heavily on Choyn
ski's ear, flooring him. Choynski's re
cuperative powers here stood him in
good stead, and while on the retreat
he landed right and left heavily
on Davis' neck. At the call of timo
both wero very groggy and were led to
Hound 5 Choynski recovered his
wind, and with scientific leading landed
two blows to Davis' one. At thcclose of
the round Choynki landed a heavy
right-hander on Davis neck.knocking
him to the ropes in a demoralized con
dition. Hound 0 Both were vicious and
landed heavy right-handers on each
other's stomiichs. Choynski now used
his left almost entirely and succeeded
in jabbing Davis in the neck and wind
repeatedly without a

Hound 7 Choyneski landed a heavy
left blow on Davis' mouth, followed by
the right on the ear. Davis rushed and
landed his left on Joe's face twice.
Choyneski then got in two heavy left
handers on tho Omaha man's mouth,
Davis spitting blood copiously.
Hound 8 Davis rushed as usual, but
met with a heavy right and left on tho
mouth, knocking him to the lloor. On
Ids arising the dose was repeated, and
nt the sound of the gong he was on tlie
lloor unable to move.

Davis fell on his face and was counted

From start to finish it was a most

eiL'btii round was either man's fight.
Chovnski depended entirely upon his
remarkable left hand, while Davis

house and cold-storage house combined,
which will be of sullicient enpacity to
supply not only the entire Pacific Coast
with dressed and packed meat, but reach
out for business in British Columbia
and wherever there is a prospect of a
market. Recently the railroad company

Point, is largely owned by Miller

are completed. The site will afford
ready communication by rail and water.
It is proposed in tho first place to sup

The edometer'B life of usefulness
seems to bo very seriously threatened by
a new French invention for recording
speed and distance traveled by man,
beast or vehicle. The inventor, E. J.
Marey, of the Institute of France, has
devised a very simple machine to which
the name odograph lias lieen given. It
draws or traces a curve on a traveling
band ol pajHT, which is a register Of the
speed with which a ieron walks or a
vehicle moves, ine recording meciinni
ism is not at all complicated and is no
likely to get out of order. It consists of
a cylinder covered with ruled paper and
revoiveu oy ciociiwurK. jn mis a siyms
actuated by a wheel which traverses" the
ground, marks the trace, and the stylus
moves at a rate proportional to the
wheel, while the paper moves past it at
right angles, with a velocity proportional
to the time. The slope of" tlie trace is a
record of the speed. The odograph is
capable of being adapted to special pur
poses, such as measuring the speed of
soldiers on the march, the rate that rail
road trains travel or the time made by
race horses on the track, and it is thought
that in the more general use which
promises to be made of this instrument
it will lie found to meet accurately nu
merous purposes for which some such
recorder has been needed.
Common Senup Almut Actors.
When we go to the theater our sole
concern is to sec a good play well acted,
and if performers could grasp this fact
they would earn far more respect than
is at present bestowed uion them. For
the private lift; of the actress we care
nothing, and of it we desiie to know ab
solutely nothing. Lady Maelieth may
lie the "blameless mother of Macbeth'
children ; Desdemona may have rightly
earned the Dtinmow flitch as the model
wife of Othello; these are points on
which it would bo impertinent on our
pnrt to inquire, our only legitimate con
cern being tlie extent to which the char
acters as drawn by the dramatist are
depicted by the plavers. Actors
and actresses would earn more respect
if they observed more reticence as to
their private proceedings, and drew a
more marked distinction between thoir
lives as individuals and as public per
formers. Changei! In Nnineii.
The Boston 7Yans ript't gossiper sug
gests that the fashion to woman's names
change every ten or fifteen years. For
instance, lie says, the Nancy epoch oc
curred early in tlie present century.
Then came the Martha Ann, Mary Jane
nnd Ann Eliza epochs in the order
named, the Mary Jane epoch dominat
ing the other two. The ijtisy epoch be
gan about 1835, after which came the
Helen, the Ida and the Ella epochs.
After these, Edith, Maud and Maliel
reigned, until they wero displaced by
the brood of names' to which tho affix
"ie" can be attached, which are now the
Thy your cases in the Courts, gentle
men, and not in the preis. Only shys
ters and pettifoggers resorts to the curb
stone and the newspapers.
