March 20.—1t looks to night as though the measure repealing the Horton act. allowing boxing and sparring, will be defeated. A caucus of Republican senators today decided to make a party measure of the bill, but at least one more vote la needed to pas.j it. Senator Coggesfaail bolted tho caucus, and will not abide by its de cision, although he is said to have voted on the first proposition to make it a party measure. Senator Willis did not vote, and it is alleged he is against the reoeal unless there is an amendment. This leaves but twenty-three Republi cans for the bill. It is possible they may get one or two Democratic votes, but this feature Is Jeopardized by the fact that the making of a party measure of the bill drives the Democrats away from Gov. Roosevelt and Mr. Lewis both profess to believe tonight that the bill will go through, and that if necessary some Democratic votes can be obtained. ROCHESTER RACE IttEETIXO.
