By Decisive Vote the Senate Leaves the Sherman Repeal Bill Alone. Hill, of New York, Makes a Speech on the Silver Ques tion. Urges the Necessity of Repeallag the Pres ent Law for the Purchase of S11 ver Bullion. WAmnmroroN, Feb. 6.-Before the routine morning bnoenss had been concluded in the senate, Hill, of New York, presented a peti. tion of the business men of Rochester, N. Y.. irrespeotivja of party, in favor of the re veal of the Sherman act. He said in' con nectilon with the presentation of the peti t.on that he desired to submit for the con si.:eration of the senate some remarks on what was known as the silver question. The vice-president asked whether there was any objection. Sherman, of Ohio, asu. aested that the senator from New York al low ordinary business to conclude first. Itoutine business was resumed, and when It was conoluded Hill again took the floor, but before beginning his remarks Hoar inquired as to the states of the hill to repeal the Sherman act. Hill said he stated last week that during the morning hour to-day he would make a motion to take up the bill and he contemplated making such motion. It was true, however, that he had been informel that other sen ators desired to speak on the subject and he thought he ought to submit his speech and then press the question for a vote. He should make the motion which he had con templated, but he should have asked to have the bill laid on the table for two days and then made a special order, so that other senators who desired to speak might have an opportunity to do so. Hill then began his speech. He said when the Sherman act was passed two and a half years ago he was exceedingly shocked and alarmed and four months before his election to the senate he had gone to the city of New York and there publicly taken issue against the principle of the policy embodied in that law, endeavoring to arouse a public sentiment that would de mand its repeal, so that instead of silence and apathy there was now in New York entire unanimity in favor of the repeal of the Sherman act. Hill quoted from the platforms of the two great national parties at Chicago and Minneapo-. lie, both of which, he said, demanded the use of both gold and silver as standard money. It was his duty, he said, to the city rind state of New York to ask in their behalf the Immediate, unconditional re peael of the Sherman law, which repeal would bring a season of financial calm in etend of a widespread fear of a monetary crisis. 'Ihe democratiO party, eaid Hill, is pledged to the repeal of the Sherman law, and the party should live up to its pledgee. Ho knew there would be aome revulsion, some discontent. He knew the inturests of silver miners might be disturbed, bus that price would have t, be paid. In closing his speech Hill said that in compliance with numerous requests made to him he decided to have the bill made a special ol der for some day that might suit the con venience of the senate. Vest, of lissouri, gave notice of an amendment providing that silver dollars of 412'L grains in weight shall be minted in a separate mint of the United States, as pro vided in the act of 1837, which coins, and all silver dollars heretofore coined, of like weight and fineness, shall be legal tender for all debts, public and private, except where otherwise stipulated in the contract, and it authorizes and direats the secretary of the treasury to purchase from time to time silver bullion, not less than 2,000,000 nor more than 4,000,000 ounces n month, and cause it to be coined monthly as fast as punrcased. Morrill said he had lietened attentively to the ye y interesting speech of the senator from New York. but failed to discover whether he is for bi-metallism on the pres ent r atio of silver or not. Morgan demanded the regular order of lhoiness and the vise president decided that the regular order of business was the motion of Hill to take up the bill. Hlill-"I intend to press that motion. I only yielded at the sougestion of senators on the other side who desire to be heard." Chorus of republican senators-"No, not on this side." Hill--"I move that the bill be made a special order for Thursday." After a good deal of confumion and par liamentary wrangling the question was brought to a disect vote on Hill's motion to take up the bil to repeal thb' Sherman act, and the motion wtas defeated, yeas twenty three, nave fo ty-two. The following is the vote in detail: Brice. t, ilson. Morrill. Safilrt y, Gorman. I ainr. )avis. hale.

Although the let ter of Secretary Marcy was written nearly forty years ago, it in thought to fairly present the views of this administration upon the question of the annexation of Hawaii. In it he objected to the immediate incorporation of the islands into the United BStates as an independent state, and said: "It is understood the measure proposed by the people, and that in which the present rulers are disiosed to onear. is annexation ans distinguished from protection, and that it is their intention that those islands shall become a part of our territories and be under the control of this government as fully as any other of its territorial possesslons. Should the sov erignty of these islands be transferred to the United States, the present government would, as a matter of course, be superseded by, or at least re subjected to, the federal authority of this eountry. FILICBUSTERIED ALL DAY. The House Did not (jet Down to leet WA[cIrN(TON. Feb. 6.-In the house flli bustering against the anti-option bill be pan before the reading of the journal. Kilgore, of Texas, raised the point of no qrnorum. A glance around the chamber convinced the speaker of the correctness of the point, and he directed the clerk to oal! the roll. Filibustering continued, while Kilgore's opposition seemed directed against the anti-option bill this measure was or but secondary importance. The plimary object was the bankruptoy bill which, it was understood, would be called up to-day, when buainess was allowed to proceed. The republicans, who sustained KilSore, had another point in view, to pre vent the calling up of the war claims bill, involving about $300.000. The journal was finally approved and the house proceeded to business. Baun moved to sus pend the rules and pass the bill appropriating $32,000 for the relief of the heirs of Adelroia Chetean. Burrows, of Michigan, demanded a second, and as no quo um voted, on motion of Kilgore a call of the house was ordered. The call showed the presence of a quorum and tellers were again ordered, and again no quorum voted, and again a call of the house was ordered. After some other roll calls the house ad journed without having reached the anti option or bankruptcy bills. Ingersoll Got $75,000. WAsHunr ToN, Feb. G.-The Panama in vestigation was begun to-day.

I)seoussed at the Annual Dinner of aCath ulic Club. l'ILADELPrIA, Feb. 6.-The Catholic hierarchy of the United States was repre sented at the annual dinner of the Catholic club to-night. Cardinal Gibbons replying to the toast, "Church and State," said: "For my part I believe the relations be tween the church and state are as close as we should desire. For it is to be feared that as soon as govern ment commenced to support churches it would dictate to nu what dootrinuo to preaoh, and in proportion as state patrounae increased, the devotion and patronage of the faithful would wax cold. If it is a great wrong to muzzle the press it would be a great wrong to muzzle the pulpit. I hank God we can all say in this free country, with the apostle, 'The word of God is not bound.' " Arch bishop Ryan, in his address,. opposed any union of church and state as it is ordinarily understood. In conclusion he said: "1 hope the Catholio hierarchy will be worthy of this glorious country which in the future it will religiously rule."

FOUGHT LIKE MCA BULLS Hottest Scrap in Many Months Be tween Griffin and Australian Billy Murphy. Won by the Former in the Sevonth, Atfter a Hard and Bloody Struggle. The Kangaroo Contlnually Fonled the isralntrooe Lad, ut the Npectators Got Their Money's Worth. CoNEy IsLAWD, Feb. 6.-Dlespite stormy weather there was a large and enthusiaatic crowd of sporting men at the Coney Island Athletic club to see Johny Griflin, of Brain tree, Mass., and Australian Billy Murphy, fight for the featherweight champlon.hip and a purse of $4.000. In addition there was a twenty-round contest between Kid Hogan, of Brooklyn, and l.oliv Lyons, of New York, for a purse of $1,000. Lyons won after a hot scrap. Then came the fight. Murphy was accorupanie l by his seconds, Martin Murphy, Charley Hioran, Charley Hogan and A. F. Murphy, with Hnapper Garrison as tinier. The seconds of Johnny Griffin wereJimuuy Carroll, Phil. Conway and Jack Mceoe, with John Mc Grath, of Boeton, as timer, The first round, which was of the hurricnne order, inade it plain that Griffin had more science, but when Murphy hit it was for keeps. In the second Griffin forced the fighting and the liveliest kind of slugging followed. Murphy, in one rush, knocked Griffin clear through the ropes with his shoulder, and on another occasion knocked him to the floor with his body. In the third Griffin forced Murphy to his knees and when he got up began pounding him, but got a stinging left in the nose, which started blood. The fight was bull dog-like during the rest of the round. They clinched, punched while locked together, and did everything bhft kick and bite. Mourphy, instead of flghtingsquarely, would run his head into Griffin's chest. Grifi., stopped that by an upper out. Murphy was now bleeding from the nose. In the fourth the game was a trifle hot for Mur phy, and he adopted shifty tactics, only olosinmg in when he got a good opening. Griffin forced the fighting hard. In the fifth Griffin gave Murphy some terrible jabs and had him groggy, forcing him to the floor four times. Murphy was groggy. He would take blow after blow square in the face and wait an opportunity to get in his right, but Griftin was equally sharp and did not get in its way. 'ilhe round was not fair, Murphy continually fouling with his head. In the sixth Murphy tried for a knock out blow with his right, but in doing so received many left-hand uppercuts that made him bleed profusely. He had his nose knocked all out of shape and was pounded so hard that lie was groggy at the call of tile. It was the most rapid kind of fighting. Murphy landed a couple of right hand swings without much apparent effect. In the seventh Murphy started in to do some heavy work, but Griffin met him with a hard left on the mouth and landed on his nose with a right. They came together like mad bulls and Murphy forced Griffin to the floor. When he arose Murphy went at him swinging his arms like windmills. They rushed each other like demons, when Griffin shot out a left which settled in the pit of Murphy's etomaoh. Down he went groaning, completely knocked out. When Murphy was carried to his chair he fell off and was held in position until he recov ered his senses. When the knock-out blow was rsoeied the round had lasted fifteen seconds, Murphy broke hii weist early in the fight. TROUBLES OF RA1LROADERS.

THE CONTRACTOR'S STORY. lMakes Out a Case of Cold Blooded MAr der. OMAH., Feb. 6.-A special from Hermosa, S. D., to the Bee says that Edward Stenger. of Stenger &8 Humphrey, beef contractors. just in from the camp on Pass oreek, says the bodies of Bennett, Kelly and Royce will arrive to-night and be buried here. James Bacon and William Kelly, boys 1G yenas old and gnests at the ranch over night, were taken in charge by their father and uncle and removed to their homes ten miles south of Pine Ridge. Two Sticks and three of his band were fed the night of the id by Rodney Royce, camp cook.
