world.
The Amphitheater Packed.
Buch a picture ne tbo immense amphi
theater presented when the gong sounded
for the preliminary event has never lieen
presented in this country or any other.
Fancy tier upon tier of seat« built into New
York's Madison Square Garden or Chicago's
Auditorium, and every seat occupied with a
vociferous, gesticulating specimen of hu
manity, one moss of human beings, rnnuing
from the sawdust of the ring to the smoke
beyond the woodwork of the ceiling, and
the picture in the mind's eye is still incom
plete. In tho throng there were men from
the east and west, from the north and
south, who at home with pious face« and
virtuous indignation would repudiate the
very suggestion that they would look upon
what in the varnacular is termed a prize
fight. There were merchant«, princes and
capitalists, generals of urmy, or at least one
of them, surrounded by members of his
stnff; millionaires, retired and active, and
around all and about all a great fringe of
sporting humanity, gathered together from
every state and territory of the Union. It
was »sight such as has never been seen in
this country, and such as will not be seen in
this country in generations, unless the
pugilist king of the Hub is mutched against
a man of his own mettle.
The Preliminary Boats.
A few micutes liefere eight o'clock Colonel
J. H. Crosby, chairmun of the contest com
mittee of the house, made his appearance in
the riug and impressed upon the gathering
the fact that order must be (reserved aud
stated that Charles Mitchell would box with
Arthur Upham, Slavin with Felix Vanqueliu
and Mitchell with Slavin us preliminary
events.
Mitchell and Upham entered the ring
from opposite corners aud received uproari
ous greeting. Mitchell played with Upham
like n baby and punched his opponent right
and left, much after the style of two dime
museum performers, and at the end of the
bout few people were outside of the ropes
whose sides were not shaking with laughter.
Felix Vanquelin and Slavin were next
announced. The former was introduced as
the champion heavyweight of the south.
Tho Texas man caught the crowd, and
every blow that he got in brought out a yell.
In the third and lnstjjround both men went nt

ion acquitted himself so well that when
time was called ho received a roar of ap
plause that lasted more than a minute.
Mitchell and Slavin then gave a very
pretty exhibition of scientific boxing, al
though Pony Moore's son-in-law wus but a
child in the hands of the big fellow.
In the third and last ronnd the two men
came together and exchanged blows right
and left with an earnestness and impetuos
ity that made the welking ring. Mitchell
showed himself no mean antagonist., and
was us clever with his dukes as he has al
ways bee«. In fact when time was called

his eye as when he faced Dempsey, tho
northern and southern half of the house
broke into a yell that resembled the deafen

of a ball rush.
Both men smiled, time was called at once
and the men sprang to the center. The fol

The succeeding rounds were little more
than child's (>lay. In the twelfth round
Fitz, while evidently cautious, seemed to
be determined to end the affair in quick
order. He lod out with bis right aud left
on Maher's face and breast und the Irish
man became decidedly groggy. He got a
fierce left hander in the fare, fair and square,
and which if followed up would have laid
him fiat and helpless in the ring. Fitz, how
ever, played with him like a cat with a
mouse, and retreated so that ha could got
into the renter of the ring.
When time wae called Maher walked to
his corner a trille unsteady, bnt to all np
pearanoes good for several more rounds. It
was then the surprise of the night came.
J ust os the call was about to be made for
the thirteenth round Maher remarked to
"Billy" Madden and Fallen, "I cannot keep

his head and seemed in immédiat« danger
of oollapse.
Fitzsimmons, who had hardly caught on
to the situation, sprang to his feet, rushed
acress the ring, seized both of the Irish
man's hands and shook and shook them
again and again. Tears stood in Maher's
eye« aud he half rone to his feet and then
staggered back.
The crowd cheered and began to file out
and in a few minutes the ring was empty.
The New York and Chicago contingents
who bud put money on the Irishman were
decidedly disgusted, and a stock yard man
voiced the prevailing sentiment when he
declared that Billy Brad born or some lesser
man could lay Maher out cold
The New Orleans people who had put up

A Ulg I row and Steel Combine.
PnTHBOBO, March 3.—A new association
of iron and steel manufacturers, representing
thirty Anna ia Pittsburg and the Ohio valley
and employing nearly ( 0,000 men, has lieen
organized. It is stated that this organiza
tion, which is entirely independent of the
Bor Iron Manufacturers' association and the
Tin Plata asuociaUon. will moke a deter
mined effort for an early adjustment of the
wage scale. The association, it is aaid, will
demand from the Amalgamated association
a change in the base of the scale, which has
heretofore lieen dictated by the bar iron
men. The association will also demand that
there shall be three tarns of eight hours
each and that hereafter all work shall be
paid for by the ton and not by the day or
piece work.
That tho new association will meet with
determined opposition from tho Amalga
mated association and tho Bar Iron Manu
facturer» is certain. The propositions are
the must radical yet present*»! to the Amal
gamated association, and unless complied
with means a war to the death between the
manufacturers and the labor organizations,
and will affect the iron and stool industry
of the United States. Negotiations have
been under way with John Jarrett, United
States consul at Birmingham, to induce him
to accept the secretaryship of the manu
facturers' new association, and while no
definite arrangements have been made, it is
reasonably certain that he will be secured
and will take charge of the new iron and
steel association._

Free ('»I,tags Men Confident.
The hitherto desultory mode of business
procedure in the house will end with the
present week, and matter* will begin to
take on « lively aspect from next Monday,
when the Hjiecial order of the committee on
rules, setting iquirt time for the consider
ation of the free coinage bill, will be de
bated.
Tuesday is set for tho beginning of tho
debate on the tariff bills. The debate will
be opened liy Mr. McMillin, of Tennessee,
acting iu the ulwenoe of Mr. Springer, and
members of the ways and means committee
will follow, each Is ing allowed unlimited
time. Other mein bene of the house will, of
conrse, speak on the tariff bills, but It is
prolmble that their speeches will lie limited,
so that the three tariff measures now before
the house may be acted on speedily. It ia
expected that the bills will lie disposed of
by the bouse before March 88 , the day set
a]inrt for the beginning of debate on tho
free coiling» bill. No filibustering on either
the free (»linage or tariff bills will be per
luit ted by Speaker Crisp, who has expressed
himself os in fuvor of sjieedy action on these
important measures.
The nnti-freu coinage men have had
several informal conferences, bnt so far no
definite plan of campaign has boon decided
on. A determined effort will be made Mon
day by the antis to prevent action on the
special order of the committee on rales.
The free coinage tulhoreuts have little
feur for the ultimate possage of their hill
by tho house, but they ore not allowing
tbeir efforts to big on this account. All
member» known to be in favor of free coin
age have lieen notified to be on iiand in the
horwe Monday, and they have also been re
quested to romain in Wnshington until after
the silver bill is diiqioaed of.
Tice Republican Policy.
Prominent Republican members have
quietly talked over the free silver situation,
but no conclusion that will result in definite
action lias been reached. A suggestion was
mode that Um Republican members, in con
junction with the anti-free silver Demo
crats, refuse to vote on the passage of the
free coinage bill in the hope that Speaker
Crisp will lie com (»died to count u quorum
by ex Hpeoker Reed's process, thus acknowl
edging the correctness arid legality of tho
"present but not voting" method sustained
by the United States supremo court Mon
day. From what the Republican members
say, their plan is to assist the (lassage of the
free coinage bill in every possible wuy, in
the idea that the adoption of the Bland
measure will emliamiss the Democratic ma
jority.
The free coinage members, however, do
not place much credence in these state
ments. They believe that the Republicans
will do all In their power to sidetrack tho
bill, and in this belief they will be guided
accordingly.

300 acres of land ut Swimming point and
