icing twenty senators present , and was ad >
Irossed by Mr. Cockrell.
In the course of n long speech , road very
rapidly , ho contrasted the positions of tin )
.wo political parties as between the question
of ultra-protection nnd that of moderate
rates of duties. Ho argued against the
republican policy ns incortoratcd | in the sen
ate bill , and quoted from the speeches of such
nen ns Senators Allison and Wilson , of
Iowa , in past years , lu opjmsition to high
protective duties , whllo on the part of the
lomocrncy ho denies that it was a free trade
urty , and read an cxtra < t from Mlalno's
' 'Twenty Years in Congress" to show that
not n proiMJsitlon for the establishment
of free trade had ever been seriously
made In the United States senate. In con
nection with his speech Mr. Cocltrell filed a
communication from the commissioner of
internal revenue to the effect that the removal -
moval of the tax on alcohol used In the arts
anil sciences would lead to extensive frauds
on the revenue , as It , would not bo difficult to
demethylate wood alcohol and make it lit for
Mr. Allison questioned the correctno's of
Llie commissioner's statement , nnd said that
the system of using methvlated spirits in the
arts was allowed in England and ( Jormany ,
and that concurrent testimony In these
countries was that spirits could not. bo
demethylated except by distillation ,
Mr. Vest asserted that wood alcohol could
bo converted into pure whisky and said that
within the last three days he had seen llio
lirocess curried on with a machine that cost
only W2. The senator had been therefore
also light In objectiuir to the proposition.
Mr. Allison said that If the senator from
Missouri had such a machine ho could , In his
bureau drawer , manufacture whisky.
Mr. Vest asked Mr. Allison to use another
form of expression , and not to speak of the
machine as his ( Vest's ) . Ho had seen it in
the ofllco of the Internal revenue commis
Mr. Spoonor of Wisconsin next addressed
the senate. Ho excused himself for reading
from a prepared speech , but said that his
speech consisted largely of extracts
from the testimony given by boards of
trade and other bodies before nn
English parlimentary commission , showing
that the result of free trade was hot satis
factory and that there was a clamor for its
overthrow and a demand for its abandon
ment. He intended to prove , ho said , that
under the influence of freo'trado in Great
Mi itiln there had been for twelve years past ,
with slight intermissions , serious depressions
in industry and trade , and a depression in
agriculture which defied a parallel. As
against this ho pointed to the marvelous
growth and prosperity of the United States
under the protective system. "Tho object
lesson thus afforded. " ho said , "was un
answerable in favor of a protective .system
and against trying an experiment that would
hamper the well being of labor and the
growth and development of thn country. "

manded the yeas and nays and succeeded in
defeating it.
Mr. Gates said that ho had failed In his
effort to got the house to adjourn , and ho
would now like to adjourn himself. Ho
asked leave of absence for the remainder of

Tim MKK.J Tom Lees , the middle weight
champion of Australia , and a mighty handy
fellow with his fists , is in a distressing pre
dicament. Ho has been two months in
America looking for a job in the ring ,
and no Yankee pugilist will tackle him. Ho
announced his willingness to fight anybody
when ho came to Now York , but nobody re
sponded. Then his mind turnoil to Jack
Dempsey , who has always showed a dispo
sition to light any ono who scorned to have
money enough In his clothes to pay for the
luxury of being soundly licked. Davis Mut-
lor , Tom Lees' manager , wanted to match an
old fashioned challogo calling on Dempsey
to fight Lees for Sl.OiX ) a side.
"Go down and offer him the challenge in
person , " was suggested. So Mr. Mutlcr and
n reporter walked to Dempsoy's saloon.
"Mr. Dempsey hasn't showed up yet , " the
barkeeper explained , ' 'but he'll soon bo
hero. "
Presently the "Nonpareil" strolled in ,
nodding right and loft In a friendly but dig
nified manner to his admirers. The great man
bustled around behind the bar and got Ills
mail nnd waived impatient profferers of
drinks while he heard Mr. Mutler.
"Will you fight Tom Lees forSl.OOOor

"Oh , he's too big for mo , " was the "Non

' We'vegot money , and Lees is anxious to
fight you , " said Mutler.
"With glovosi" asked Dempsoy.
"No , with the knuckles , Ix > ndon rules. "
"I've got engagements right ahead for the
next four months , " said IJempsey. "I
couldn't take this offer before then , any
how. "
"You haven't received any formal chal
lenge from Mitchell , have you I" asked the
Dempsey remained immersed in his letter.
After a longtime ho said : "I take them all
sizes as they come. I don't care anything
about u man's weight. Lees can get plenty of
pcoplo to fight him If ho wants to. "
Lees seemed disappointed on hearing of
Dempsey's refusal. "I ran fight nt 1.M
pounds. " he said , "and I'd bo glad to comedown
down to that weight to meet Dempsey. I'd
rather tackle him than any of the others. 1'vo
