most powerful parliamentary body in
tbe world. It contains great part of
tbe ripened talent and mature experience
in politics and In government of tbe Amer

Tbe democrats will conlrol the house
in the Fifty-second congress by an over

republican by a narrow majority, and in
that majority there W a group of open

Passage of a Radical Bill for
Free Silver Coinage.
VEST WAITS TOE HIS OPPORTUNITY
And Secures the Adoption of the Measure
Ine-all's Speech on Silver-The -nnte
Committee's Hill Amended by Striking
Out I'ntll Little Was Left Except Mew
art'a Free. Coinage Clause, and Then
ttweiit Away by Vest's Substitute The
Election mil Next by a Cloae Share.
Washington- City, Jan. 15. The free
coinage question was fettled yesterday so
far as the senate la concerned. The dis
casaion and action on the bill was the only
business attended to after tbe Journal had
been read, and but two speeches were
made before t be consideration of amend
ments was la-gun. The first senator to
take tbe floor was Instills, who !i?gnn by
say i n that tbere were two portentous
evils which menaced the safety if they did
not endanger the existence of the rcpitli
lic. Tbe first was ignorant, debased, tie
graded, spurious suffrage suffrage con
taminated by the sewage of decayed rin
tions; suffrage intimidated and suppressed
iu the south; suffrage impure and corrupt,
apathetic and indifferent in the great cit
ies of the north; so that it was doubtful to
his mind whether for half a century there
bad been a presidential election in this
country that expressed tbe deliberate aud
intelligent judgment of the whole body of
the Americtiu people.
"A Oondltlou and Net Theory."
He thou reftHTed to tbe newspaper inter
view bad with him several mouths ago, in
which be bad said that the golden rule
and the decalogue had no place in an
Americancampaigu.lt seemed superfluous
to explain, that in that utterance be was
not inculcating a doctrine, but describiug
a condition Mis statement was a state
ment of fact, not an announcement of
faith. But many reverend and emiuent
divines, ninny disinterested editors, many
Ingenious orators perverted this utterance
Into a personal advocacy of the impurity
of politics. He did not complain. It was,
as the world went, legitimate political
A Good Kule if Generally Observed.
But it was an illustration of the truth
that the golden rule and the decalogue
ought to have a place in political cam
piiigus. "if tbe enemy smite tbee on one
cheek, turn the other," was a good pre
cept to follow. But be would ob
serve mac until mat precept whs more
generally observed, or was likely to lie, if
his political enemy smote him on one
cheek, instead of turning to him tbe
other, he would smite him under the butt
end of his left ear if he Could. fLautihter.
If that he political immorality, be must
bo included among the unregeuerated
The Second Great Evil.
The second evil to which he had advert
ea whs tie tyranny oi combined, concen
trated, centralized, conscienceless and in
corporate!! capital, ana tne people were
considering that great problem now. At
the beginning of the second century the
Ameritnn people bad been profoundly
convince! mm tne ballot was not the pan
aceaioriue evils ot societv; that it bat
not alwlished poverty, nor diminished in
justice. It was within bounds to say that
t the present tune there were many
cores ot men and ot corporations in thi
country whose annual income (anil there
bail been one man whose monthly reve'
nue) exceeded the entire accumulations of
the richest citizens of the I'nited StHtes
at the end of the last century.
The Change In Social Condition.
The population of the Union was then
n,5mi,XM, and the estimated wealth of the
country Ix-tween t3,(i0,0il0,0u0 Rnd S4,nu0.-
IMJ.OOO. There was not a millionaire and
there was not a tramp or pauper in the
country. Since that time the growth In
wealth aud numbers of the United States
bad bad no precedent in the building of
nations, ne reierred to Sherman's speech
of Tuesday as a defense of millionares, and
mat millionaires and snecuintors
neany tne aame kind of people.
They are not the producers and laborers of
the country. They are arrayed like "Solo
mon In all bis glory;" J,ut "they toil not,
neither do they spin." Yes: thev ! ai.in '
K'Kaiuiu ai-cumuiatlons bave not
oeen tne result or industry and economy.
A Reference to Jay Gnulil.
After some more denunciation of those
who have acquired great riches, Ingalls
iiu iuoi one man in mis country, tbe Mi
das of the century, at whose touch every-

that exceeded the assesaed value of four of
sue smaller states, and which was munv
time more than the entire wealth of the
republic when it was founded. This was
sue mosi terrible commentary ever re
corded in the book of time. We were ac
euatomea to speak of this as "the land of
no tree ana tne Home of the hrave;" and
it would soon be "the home of the rich and

Declares for Free Silver.
The political power of the nation bad
been transferred from the tirPlimtnntiiAA
to the center, and the oeonle of th.i
ter were unanimously demanding
coinage of silver. It was for ti.r
that he hhould cordiullv snnnnrt .h-
amendment of tbe senator from .Nevada.
In doing so. he would not. nt.K. ..n i
dictates of his own judgment, but would
carry out the wishes of the great majority
of bis constituents, lrresnecf n, .......
or political affiliations.

was rejected, as was one repealing the tax
on slate banks.
Vest Springs a Surpr'"-!
The bill was then reported to tM senate,
and the amendments made in committee
of the whole were Bgreed to. Then Vest
astonished the senate by bringing forward
as a substitute for the bill a purely free
coinage bill, which provides that kha unit
of value in the United States shaB be the
dollar to t coined of 418; gruind of stan
dard silver, or 25 8 grains of standard gold.
Vest stated that his substitute wa similar
to the free coinage bill that passed the
senate last session.
Simple Kree Coinage a La.
Aldrich moved to amend the substitute
by adding thereto the national banking
feature of tbe original bill; lost 83 to
1. Vest's substitute was agreed-to with
out division. The bill as amended was
agreed to-yeas, !; nays, 2?. Hoar then

Committee met yesterday, and President

tlie contested cases will be taken up at 10
o'clock Friday morning and tried together.
Evidence will be submitted and consid

but it was no use. Similar action was
taken by the house committee, where it
wis decided that the contests will 1m
ta ken up Friday in the Buuow case. The

their programme for the sessiou was
partly outlined. They waut proper

farm drainage, and roads and bridges.
The Senate and House.
In the senate the house joint resolution
inttructing the senators on the silver
qnwtion was read. Karraker introduced
a resolution for a committee to inquire
wbether the ex-state treasurer bad prolit

belt. Berry introduced an amendment to
the school bill requiring the common
branches to be taught in the Euglish lan
gunge, and Higbee introduced a bill giv
ing cities and towns exclusive control of
the ir schools.
The most interesting incident in tbe
hoi se was the demand of Taubeneck for a
committee to investigate a report that be
had at one time been charged before tbe
courts with criminality. It was a news

niatehed. New Orleans, Jan. 13. The gathering
of sporting men which witnessed the fight
for the middle-weight championship of
the world between Jack Dempsey and Bob
Fitzsimmons last night was the most no
table for the past two decades. Every
prominent sporting man in the United
States was at the ring side, except Sulli
van, and the building was crowded with
enough people to make the light a big lav
nanza for tho club under whose auspices
it was given. It was within a few min
utes of 0 o'clock when Slanager GuUlott
stepped over the ropes, and after nroenr-
ing silence told tbe great multitude that
they were to see a fair aud square fight,
and that they would bave to preserve or
fer. If the police were unable to preserve
It, bs said that the members of the club
vvere sworn to do so. With this admoni
tion be introduced Capt. Alexander
Brawster as referee.
Appearance of the Gladiatora.
Tbe latter had barely crossed tne nes
when Fitzsimmons stepped upon th. plat
form. He was enveloped In an ulster or
Irish friese. the bottom touching his feet,
and the upturned collar the top of his
heaM. lib appearance was not calculated
to create a favorable impression. Attired
as be was, he looked like an overgrown
farmer's Itoy. He walked knock-kneed
with a cat-like movement, aud his red
hair was bristling and tbere was a sarcas
tic turning of the lips at tbe small amount
of applause with which Ire was welcorned.
Having won the choice of corners, be
chose the southwest, and he bad hardly
been seated when the "Nonpareil" vaulted
lightly over the ropes. He had never seen
his opponent before and he sized him up
How They Looked When Stripped.
Fitzsimmons was tbe first to divest him
self of his coat .ind trowsers, leaving him
naked except for bis red silk fighting
drawers which barely covered his hips.
An involuntary burst of applause came
from the audience when bis form was ex
posed to view. He was a perfect Kiec:mcn
of manhood, six feet in height, w ith arms
as long as a yard stick, thiu legs, but pow.
erful shoulders and chet, upou whicti the
muscles stood out solid and Ann like a
whalebone. Dempscyalsocreated a favor
able impression. The muscles of bis arms,
shoulders and legs, while not prominent,
appeared to be in condition of perfect de
velopment, and his broad, strong calves
showed up well. His flesh had a healthy
glow. Fittsimrnons weighed IjoV and
Ihe Men To. the Mark.
Time was called, and tbe men met in the
center of the ring, Dempsey extending his
hand to his antagonist. The Australian
took the hand, which he shook cordially.
At this juncture Dempsey offered to la-t
tl.Ouuto f00 witb Fitz-immoris, a San
Francisco sport iu one of the boxes hand
ing out the money, but Capt. Barrett in
terposed, and declared that a second at
tempt of the kind would land all the par
ticipants tn tbe station house.
Round 1. Both men exchanged several
body blows, Dempsey's under blows
strong. Fitzsimmons was active on his
feet. Tbe round closed with no advantage
to either man.
Round 2. Same as first. Both men ex
changed body and face blows. Dempsey
was more wary. Advantage with the Au
atralian. Dempsey Knocked Down.
Round 8. Fits sent Jack to grass with
a breast blow, followed him all over the
ring, punching him severely. Dempsey was
groggy, and evading punishment.
Round 4 General exchange of Mows.
Dempsey's wind short. The round cloned
wit h honors even.
Round 5. Dempsey was sent to bis
knees. He received the worst kind of pun
ishment. Fitzsimmons in good form.
Round 6. Heavy exchange of blows,
Dempsey avoiding punishment. Fitz'a
Round ". Both men fought like tigers.
Fitzsimmons strnck Dempsey while they
were clinched. The crowd cried "foul,"
but it was not allowed. Round 8. Same
Ronnd 9 Dempsey sent to the ropes.
Round 10. Fitzsimmons twice sent Demp
sey to the earth.
Terribly Itongh oa the Nonpareil.
Round 11 Bob crowded Jack and
landed two lefts. Jack fell on tho ropes.
Bob landed a terrific left and Dempsey
staggered. Dempsey led for the stomach
and Bob jumped away. Bob landed a ter
rific left aud floored Dempsey. Bob
knocked him down again, let him gain
wind and landed a territiu right and left.
Round Ii Fitz-immons allowed him
self to rccieve a few childish blows, and
then with a left bander in the jaw sent
Dempsey on his back. He slow ly arose
and went down agaiu from a left-ban ied
touch in the riua. Rising to his feet
with difficulty, he went down again.
Fitz picked Dempsey up like a child,
smoothed bis hand over his head and held
him in bis arms for a second. Then be
weut over to his own corner and sal on the
I'oor Jack Dies Hard.
Round 13. Demjisey staggered to the
ceuterof t he ring. Little vitality was a ppar
ently left. He clinched at the first at
tempt of Fitz to strike. The Australian
pushed him away, let out with a short -arm
which barely touched him, anil he fill to
the ground. Twice he essayed to rise, but
be rolled over aud over like a man in dying
agonies. Time was called and failing to
respond tbe fight was awarded to the Aus
tralian womler, while the audience
cheered acain and again. From all ap
pearances Fitz could have done tbe tight
over again without leaving the ring.
Dempsey was taken iu a carriage to his
boarding hou-e, while Fitz put on Ins
clothes and walked borne with Ins seconds.
The fight lasted 4'J minutes.
