London, Aug. 23. The vessel owners held
a meeting yesterday morning and appointed
a committee to wait on Matthews, home sec
retary, to inquire if the government was
prepared to give them protection in case they
undertook to bring men here from other
point to load and unload, tbe ships now at
this port Matthews assured the members
of the committee that they should receive
ample protection, but when asked to advise
them, declined to express any opinion as to
tbe wisdom of the course they proposed. He
pointed out to them, however, the grave con
sequences whioh were almost certain to re
Bult from an attempt at this time to fill the
places of the strikers with foreigners, and
suggested that they do nothing rashly.
Have Hired Foreign laborers.
Tbe committee reported in the afternoon
at a joint meeting of the shipowners and the
dock companies. The conference was strict
ly private and reporters were excluded. It
was learned last evening, however, that a
decision w as reached not to make the at
tempt to handle freight with the new men
that have been engaged. A Iarg4 steamer is
on the way to lndon now from Hamburg
and another from Antwerp with men who
have been hired at these points to take the
places of tKe striking dock laborers, but in
structions w ill lie sent to land these men at
neighboring ports, and on no account to
bring them to London.
How They Will Work the Scheme.
A plan was proposed at the meeting, and
very favorably received, to gradually send
the vessels now lying here to the nearest
ports to 1 loaded and unloaded, and
ship their cargoes to and from London by
rail. Nearly 8,000 laborers, who have been
hired at foreign porta, and who are now on
their way here, are to be sent to these places
to assist in loading and discharging vessels.
In this way it is hoped to tide over tbe pres
ent difficulties and to starve the strikers
into submission, without furnishing them an
excuse for open violence by bringiug men
here to take their places. No definite action
was taken yesterday, but it is quite likely
that this plan will be adopted at an ad
The Movement Will He Checkmated.
The leaders of the striking laborers laugh
at this attempt at flank movement. They say
the enormous cost of such a proceeding
would alone condemn it to failure, but apart
from this, if the attempt is seriously made
they could effectually checkmate the ship
owners by ordering out tbe freight-handlers
at the London termini of tbe railroads, w ho,
they say, are even now anxious to strike.
Burnt, the Socialist, ta Command.
The public subscription in aid of the
strikers now amount to 3,000, and this sum
will be used chiefly for the purchase and dis
tribution of food tickets. Over 1011,000 men
in different, occupations are now on strike.
and all look for orders to Burns, the Social
ist agitator, w hose excellent management of
he strike thus Tar elicits surprise and ad
miration from friend aud foe alike.
The Dork Companies Henouneed.
The Loudon chamber of commerce held
special meeting ye.Brdsy, called for tbe
purose of taking some action with reference
to the disastrous condition of things brought
about by the existing strikes. The meeting
was very largely attended, representative
men from all branches of trade and industry
being present. Speeches were made roundly
denouncing the dock companies for their ac
tion, and resolutions were passed urging
them to agree to arbitration. A committee
of prouiineut business hum was appointed to
wait on the officials of the company to pre
sent the resolutions, aud they were instructed
to use their best efforts to prevail upon the
duck companies to end the strike.
M. F's. Labor with Them.
Keven memliers of the house of commons
called on the dock managers yesterday aud
tailored with them fur nearly two hours in
an effort to in. luce them to yield. They
urged the justice of the demands made by
the lalHirers and asked them to concede tbe
insignificant advauce of wages sought. Tbey
poiuted out that the situation was hourly
growing worse, and that notbiug short of ab
solute ruin for the vast interests of London
and England waa threatened as a result of
ill-considered olntinacy at this critical junc
ture on their part. 1 be managers were all
politeness, but held out no encouragement.
aud the most compromising statement that
could be extorted from thorn was that they
"would consider it.
Burns, the leader of the strike, addressed
a meeting of the strikers last night, declar
ing that tlie strike was the begiuning of a
new era f ir workingmen.
Another Immense Process ion.
One hundred thousand striking duck labor
ers marched in procession yesterdav, and
the great army was loudly cheered as it
T i oity. It was the
largest procession 01 strikers wbiofa London
has ever seen, and tbe effect of the great
demonstration was apparent last night.
Workmen are everywhere discussing the
event, and unless the strike be ended at once
by arbitral iou or surrender of tbe dock
owners men in many branches of trade not
yet atT'cted w ill be drawn into the revolt by

from the Marine's backers, who seemed to
lack confidence in their man.
The Men Toe the Mark.
There were a few preliminary set-toe be
tween less notable sluggers and then the
event of the evening was called. Dempsey
weighed 151 pounds and La Blanche 161.

The Marine Tries Rushins; Tactics.
The Marine made a series of rushes, all of
which Dempsey evaded with cleverness.
In one of these rushes the Marine was thrown
heavily on the Topes, and it was evident that
his tactics were to rush IVmpsey to tbe
ropes and get in a knock-out, but he exhaust
ed his wind without result. Iu the fourth
the Marine hail two good otwniugs in
clinches, but missed them because he lacked
quickness. La Blanche got in hard blows on
Jack's wind with his left and rushed him to
the ropes, repeating tbe same blow an in
stant later. Tbe call of time prevented an
other rush by tbe Marine, who bad a de
cided advantage in tins rounJ. The Marine
led in the fifth with his left on Jack's stom
ach, and reached bim in a clinch. He tried
to throw Jack, narrowly missing a foul

Tbe fighting in the next fifteen rounds was
give and take, La Blauche gettiug in a num
ler of heavy blow and receiving returns
with interest La Blanche generally fell on
top in the clinches. In the nineteenth round
Dempsey got in seven blows on tbe Marine's
neck, the last of which sent him to the floor.
First knock down for Dempsey. The next
five rounds were all in Dempsey's favor,
and it looked as though tbe tight was won
for the "Nonpareil," but in tbe thirty -second
round La Blanche cau;bt Dempsey a tre
mendous blow, knocking bim dowu. It was
a settler. The heretofore invincible Demp
sey could not come to time, and for the first
