Ciitru.o , Fob. ii.--Tho : W.OJO a side
world's lightweight championship light be
tween Jack McAullffo and Hilly Mujers , at
North Judson , Ind. , ended to-day in a draw
in four hours and thirty-live minutes. It was
n sixty-four round affair , consisting ehiolly
u uf light sparring seasoned with iho
most accurate science ever seen
\i \ in the ling. The blood-thirsty gentlemen
were nil disappointed , Hirhoflho contest-
nuts in the battle satisfied his hackers , mid
people most interested seemed to consider
this achievement the height of modern at
tainment in the ring If , however ,
instead of from fctO.iOJ to $ : > 0,0lo (
hanging upon thci icsult , there
had been n pmso ol * . ' ( X ) or so , general opin
ion dppcurs to bo that there would have licon
a gonlilno light , and , as talk goes , Mvers
would have stood a good chance of winning.
Dick Hoche , the backer of McAulllTe , openly
congratulated Myers in thorin'nnd agreed
to back him with * 300 ( ' against anybody In
the world.
The light Boomed badly mnnnged , about the
onli mastcily strnkoof policy uppnrcntbcing
l'io miming of Michael C McDonald , the
cll known gambler of Chicago , as rcf-
rrec. It was past 7 o'clock in the morni ng
when the light began. Upon ruachmg
Judson the lighters went at once
to bed , mid nil the tlmo from
midnight until morning outsiders were en
during the cold in tramping the streets or
riding up and down the railroad to carry out
the various pretexts on which the public of-
llcials had allowed themselves to bo "per
suaded" that cveij thing \\ns in accordance
with law.
Hotting was seldom so spirited on any
'if similar event. "Odds were even" in almost
ovciy wnger. Ono stakeholder had $11 , . * > UO ,
another $7'JOO , and there uoroenough others
to foot ill ) a certainty of (31,000 , besides the
original stakes and gate mc.iey of over
541,000. Just as the light bciran , Hoche ,
McAulIffo's backer , bet WOO on first
blood and ? 500 for the llrst
knock down for "Mac. " A few smaller bets
were made on the same issues , and Mycis'
backers won both events. Mjers scored
Hist blood in the tuentj-ninth lound and the knockdown in the forU third. This is
the only mono.v of the thousands up which
changed hands on the light.
The fatreator people had been saying that
Myers would almost at the very stall bicak
McAulIffo's neck , and the smart eastern fel
lows claimed to be sure that McAulllTe would
win In "one bloody punch. " Neitho assertion
was any miiwheie near coricct. The
style of lighting was usually a lead
by McAuliffe , which was either couiiteied
siuirly or double by Myers. McAuliffc's up-
pourauco * and action was superb , while
Mvers showed nn awkwardness anu lack of
llnlsh that wouht have been fatal but for the
marvellous quickness ho was scon to possess.
The high state of training in which both
men entered the ring caused a blow to red-
dc'l the skin instantly , but the mark faded
almost us suddenly as it cauie , and on the
way homo neither inincipal could bo picked
out by the crowd by the marks ho bore.
Twice during the light Mvcis failed
only by n hair breadth to knotk McAuliffo
out , but the lattci's science checkmated the
strength and quickness of Myers , just as
those two qualities saved the btrCator boy
Jiom the powerful Jabbing and rapping
undercuts of McAuliffe.
The two contestants Joked each other con
tinually during the light. MoAuliffo would
say , "Why tion't yon light ] " and Myers
would retort , "I'm only nn nmateur and
you're u professional , " etc. Thus it pro
ccodod. Men got wcaiy and wenl to
hreakfnst only to como back and
find the llg'it in the same innocuous desue
tude in which they loft it. There was too
much money up , it was evident to everybody ,
to allow either man to rush the light and run
the risk of nn accidental knockout.
At the opening of the sixty-fourth round
Uoferco McDonald announced , nppaiently
much to the lighters' sururlse , that ho would
dccido It u draw. Each had a few moments
previous declined to acknowledge
that such a settlement would
lie acceptable , but it evidently
was , novel thelcss , if not to the lighteis them-
bclves , nt least to the men who contiollcd
them. Hefetco McDonald said that each
man had succeeded In keeping the other fiotn
The following Is the light by rounds :
FustlilUmnd MeAuliffo led with his left ,
forced Uilly to the ropes , landed his left on
the nose and right on the ribs. It ciittod in
favor of McAullffo.
Second Koumi An exchange , in which
Myer landed on his opponent's neck , getting
in return a stinger in the nose. McAuliffe
slipped at the ropes , saving himself from a
terriulo light hand blow. A foul was claimed ,
but not allowed. The loutid ended with
cautious spairlng.
Third Hound McAuliffe led lightly and
then landed heavily. McAulIITo rushed , but
It was an oven exchange , Hilly getting in n
good right hand blow full on McAnlinV's
face , which stnggcicd him. Hoth men now
became dilutions , neither evidently dating to
risk leaving bimsoll unguarded.
The most of the lighting for the next ten
rounds was at short aim , with little oxccu
tion , fcovcial times ending in a clinch.
Fourteenth Hound Mae rushed Mycr ,
landing with his left on the nose and receiv
ing two stinging nlows on the face and nook.
In rushing a second time Mae slip ) ed and
fell with Myer on top. M > er then com
! menced forcing matters and lushed.
Fifteenth Hound This was a ropititlon of
the fourteenth.
Sixteenth Hound This opened with n
heavy oxi-hango of Wows. Mi or caught Mac
with a vicious right hand swing full in the
Seventeenth Hound MoAuliffo led with
his loft and icached Mier'n eye , but was
heavily countered on the body.
Klghtceiith Hound Mj nr's right eye
showed closing , otherwise both men were in
good condition. Then followed another sea
son o ( cautious work and spairmg for wind ,
neither holng anxious to fouu matters.
Twcnt\-tlrstHouml MeAulilToopened the
round bi a rush , landing lightly on M.\er's
forehead , followed by n clinch. Mycr landed
heavily on Mao's ribs with his right. There
was careful sparring to the end of tha louiut.
Twenty second Hound Holh moil eatno up
fresh and strong. Mjer's eyes weiu black-
culm. , but otheiwisu neither showed signs of
punishment. The louud was but n repetition
of their past tactics.
Twenty-thlid Hound MeAuliffo opened
with a rush , landing heavily on Mycr's nose ,
The lighting which followed resulted in u
clinch , Mao led with Ills loft again and
lauded on Mver's face , getting uw y without
return. Mjor baielj missed a vicious right
unit loft lunge by MuAullffo , which would
Imvo settled the alfair.
The next ( luce rounds were Ineffectual ,
Hoth men worn in grout condition. Time
was culled for two minutes by the rofcioe to
Bliow the sheriff that It was a boxing mutch
uud not a tluht. The shorltT then loft the
tin ! ! , promising Hint If ho heard that either
of the Him was hurt he would nrreat every-

Then follotvod n long series of eompara
tlvolj harmless round" , both men placing
the cautious dodge , though In a different
way. MeAulilTo did nil the lending ,
whllo Mjcr was constantly on the
lookout for n chnnco to counter.
A nuii'bcr of pretty good blows wcro struck
by both , with honors about even and the men
equally fresh The ciowd grow tired of the
tame work nnd began to call on the lighters
to do some olTci live work.
Forty third Hound In this round the light
ing became sharper and in the forty-
fourth M\er secured the llrst knock
down with a swinging loft-lrindur.
MoAuliffo began to rcall/et hat it was impos
sible to tiio his opixmont outnml commenced

signs of weakness , and another tire-
seine season of sparrlm : followed.
Fifty eighth Hound MeAulilTo snul : "I

The light had lasted fourhotits.
Sixtieth Hound Mjcr landed with his
right on McAulilTo's ear , the llrst good blow
In sixty rounds. Hoth were buck nguln at
the old tactics.
Sixty sccondiUound old admirer of
Mycr called out : "Don't bo afraid of him ,
Hilly. Ho can't huit jou. " The answer
was : "Tho devil ho cant. " 'Iho plan of
Mycr's campaign was evidently to stay for
a diaw , and so protect his backers.
SUt.v-thiiil Hound Hothjfollowed the old
tactics , and not a blow was struck
Sixty-fourth Hound The llcht had lasted
four hours and thirtj llvo minutes McAu

his plan of winding Myer. His blows were
diteeted at Mior's stomach.
At the conclusion of this round the fight
was declared n draw.
Myers' KriendH D
STIIBVTOH , 111 .Teb 1 ! [ Special Telegram
to Tin : HKI : ] A more disaupointod delega
tion of sports never returned to Streator
than the "favoicd few" that arrived by
special train from North Judson , Ind. , nt
f > 10 hist night , via the Indiana , Illinois &
Iowa railroad. They wcio not disappointed
because tholr man did not win , but because
thorofciee , as they claim , unfairly decided
the battle a draw , when Myei s for the hist
six rounds had the best of the light and
could lm\o easily won the contest in the
next ten rounds , had he concluded to force
the lighting There were fully two bundled
people at the depot to meet Hilly Myers and
extend their congratulations. Aback awaited
his in rival and ho was quickly hustled Inside
ami driven to the Plumb house , whore a
leception was tendered him.
Mi ers claims that ho could have won the
light if he hud taken chances by rushing
MoAulnTe , but having la view the met that
many of his friends had staked all their
eaithly possessions on the result , ho would
not under ciicumstunccs run a nsk of
losing the light in the hitter portion of the
contest. Myers had McAullfle's phenomenal
"loft" chopped and biuised up so badly that
he could not strike a blow hard enough to
knock out a canary bird.
M > cis told McAulitTo before leaving the
battle ground that if he would face him In a
twelve-foot ring and lock thcmsehes in a
loom ho would light him for stake money to-
moiiow. The gate money taken in the
Noith Judsou fight this morniiik' is border
mg closely on frlO.OOO. A telegram fiom
Hloomiimtoa , 111. , arrived at the scene of the
battle a few moments before the contest ,
stating that $1,000 awaited Myers m Hloom-
uigton piovidmg ho won the light. Myeis ,
with the exception of a pair of deep mourning
c.jes , is in excellent condition.
niciViillfle's Kccord.
Jack McAuliffe , the "Tornado , " was born
in Cork , Jteland , March 24 , 1S ( ! . His father
was a steeplechase jockey and his mother a
lady of a well-known family. She was dis-
inhoiitcd owing to her marriage to the
jockey. McAuliffe , sr. , by reason of his
calling , was small of stature , but for all that
was noted as a clever man with his hands.
When Jack was ten months old his father
became a Fcninn nnd raised a company.
Forced to leave Iicluml , the father came to
Amciicaaml enlisted in the ai my , being a
sergeant under Koao. In IS ? ! } ho was ugum
n civilian , living at Haugor , Mo. , mid it was
hero that the family weie reunited. Jack
being six yeais of ago when ho crossed the
Atlantic. At Brooklyn , N. Y. , six years
later the boy was apprenticed to a cooper ,
nnd soon learning the trade , was in four years
known as ono of the best of workmen and
was engaged in making sugar barrels.
It was about this time that Charley Mitch
ell showed Uillj Edwards up in so poor a
light , and all the boys tooic to boxing. Moio
especially about the cooper shop because
Dcmpboy , then first becoming promi
nent , was a graduate of the concern. Jack
had a brother who was given to bov
ing , mid the little follow ( not a bit inter
cstcd ) saw brother and a frierd sparring
one day in the garret , nnd when the older
lads loft the house ho wont in and put the
gloves on One day his big brother caught
him ut it , rallied him to "put 'cm on , " and
m consequence Jack won his lirst victory
Naturally n hard hitter , ho soon gave his
antagonist enough.
Hilly Madden once gave a boxing tourna
ment in Now Yoik city for light-weights.
Jack heard of it , and the night before the
tournament Jack and his brother took n
loaf down the Bowery. Thou thoio were
many places whcio boxes by volunteers
occurred nightly. Tncy finally dtoppcd into
aplaco whoio alight-weight , young Mace , waste
to knock out a follow. The youngster didn't
show up and McAulilTo doiined tlio inits for
the tlrst time in his life. It took him two
rounds to do up Mace.
In Maddcn's ' tournament the light weight
class took in men up to 110 pounds , but Mc-
Aullffo's Hist opponent was a man named
Leavy , who scaled I'.n. Jack at 112 But
Jack won just the same. Mi Cimt.vcaino next ,
and after tour rounds both Madden and Jack
Denipiioy told McAuliflo that it was a bhauio
for him to go on with a man twenty pounds
heavier than he , and that if ho would draw
out , thus giving McCiinly the medal , a tour
nament for men of his weight should bo got
up. McAulilTo acquiesced , and afterward
won the medal offered , boating Kline , Wil
son , Harris and O'Neal.
Ho v/as still working In the cooper shop ,
and In the summer of Ibvt fought his llrst
finish light with ono of his fellow-workmun.
Thotmmoof the mun was .ItiKo Kaichor , a
( icunan , and he was the bully of the shop
and had been when Jack Dempsey worked
there. Although ho weighed 170 , McAulttTo
knocked him out in seventeen i mm els.
Soon thureaftar ho w.iu tlio Douipsoy and
Madden medal lor 100-pound men , boating
Hoguti , White , Thcisor and Dovlo , and In
March , lYtf , no became amateur light-weight
champion of America through winning a
tournament given by the Now York Athletic
cluii , In which ho defeated William and Joe
Klllnsworth. Then ho mot and defeated
Spurry , Stevens , Manger and Mlko rushing.
Now Hilly Madden challenged vouug
Mitchell in .lac ! : ' * behalf for $1.000 u side ,
and signed the challenge "Jack MeAuliffci ,
the light-weight champion of America , " and
by this act Jack became u professional pu
Ills Hi st light as a professional was with
Jack Hopper six rounds , and ho bested his
man , and .iftenvnrd knocked him out m hU
flret llnish light with "akin tights" in seven
teen rounds. Hdly Fnuer was the next vic
tim , lustlnc twenty ono rounds. Then Harry
Cllmoro fet In and was knocked out in
twenty-eight round ; .
Jem Carney c.iUin over , nml In the light for
the wet Id's championship Jack proved us
good as his master , the affair I'ading in a
draw ut the end of poventy.four rounds.
Within thn last few months Hilly Dacpy
wan knocked out In cloven rounds , Sum
Collyer In the second round nnd Jack Hyams
in nine rounds. Such Is the history and
rccoidof Jack MeAuliffo ,

An Urgent Demand lor Their Immed
iate Hovlslou l.v Congress.
WtsnivoTov , Fob 13. Representative
Gates of Alabama , from the committee on
judiciary , to-day icportcd favorably to the
house a bill to amend the nuturuHzatlou laws
of the United Slates. The report accom
panying the bill ticuts of the existing uat-
uralirution laws in a critical spirit , nnd calls
attention to the abuses that have spiung up
under them. It says :
"An alien may bo a notorious thief , mur
derer , outlaw , anarchist , polygamlst , leper
or a hardened criminal , and yet our law al
lows him , by making nn ufthlnvlt of
intention before a clfirk of the
couit. nil the bencllts of cltt-
7cnshlp within the United fetates.
So dcllcicnt is the present law , and so careless -
loss is the piactlco of judges , with but few
exceptions , that an alien , however bad his
character or Ignorant ho may be , can become
a citi/on of the United States. 1 hero is
nothing In the law to deny citi/onship even
to idiots , insane persons , paupers or others
who have come into the United State in flan-
unit violation of our immigration laws , "
The ropoit concludes with a synopsis and
a\pl million of the piovisions of the bill ,
which are , In brief- Limitation of classes
of foreigners who shall bo eligible
to citircnship In the United States ,
including Indians adopting civil ( roil life ;
pt ascription of form of application require
ment that the district altoi ney shall defend
the government against improper npplicn
tion and that application shall bo
corroborated upon point of residence ;
restriction of Jurisdiction to high
state and federal courts ; preservation of the
rights of aliens who have already declared
their intentions ; an allowance of the right of
bonn lido applicants to make homestead en
tries , nnd to receive pitents after nnturnliro.-
tion , and requirement of would-be citlrcns
that they shall have resided five jears in the
United States and bo able to icad the consti

Au Important Discovery AfTectint ;
'Jhelr Arallillty.
ST. Louis , Mo , , Fob. 13. A most Import
ant discovery has boon raado hero that the
control of barbed wire patents is not vested
In any American firm or corporation , be
cause the device of the barbed wire was pat
ented hi Franco by Louis Jancn on April 19 ,
iwn. The law of this country , as decimal
by the United States supreme court , is that
"a foreign patent for the same thing or a
description of a thing in a foicign publica
tion Is us elfcctuul to void a patent as If the
patauteo had .seen the prior invention , notice
to him not being important. " If this decision
holds , und there is no appeal from It , the
claims of certain persons for royalty under
the Gliddoa and other barbed wuo patents
are void , and all money paid to thorn by
barbed wire manufacturers who had interest
in the Glidden patents is believed to bo sub
ject to iccovery.

Wvsuisorov , U. C. , Feb. 13. I
Benjamin Harrison , of Indiana , and Lovl
P. Morton , of New York , were to day finally
elected , respectively , president and vice
president of the Unilcd States. The finish
ing touches of this great republican victory
wcro given by the joint session of the two
houses of congress In the hull of the house
of representatives before ns largo a body of
people as it was possible to congregate there.
Admission to the galleries was obtained only
by Iho courtesy of members of onclof the
two houses of congress. The long series of
tiers of scats on the north side of the hall of
Iho house , which are usually occupied by
Iho colored population , w.n given up
to the white people , mostly women.
In fuel , the gentler sex monopolized
nearly all of the sentlnjand standing room
in every nook and corner. The women and
chi'dren ' of senators and representatives
were located around over the lloor of the
house back behind the curtains which sepa
rate the members1 scats from the lobby and
cloak rooms , nnd throughout the upper gal
cos i'icuor8 nvAiisr.\uE.
A noticeable feature of the attendance
upon the pioccedliigs was the entire ab
sence of any members of the white house
family or nuy of the cabinet ofilcers. The
front seat in the executive gallery , set aside
for Mrs. Cleveland , and which she has so
frequently occupied during the past jcar ,
was vacant , the doorkeepois were instructed
to admit no one to it , nnd although every
other available inch of space was occupied
no one was in Mrs. Cleveland's seat during
the afternoon.
There was a brief morning hour in the two
houses , when they took n recess for the joint
convention. The house was a scene of
swiftly moving bodies and a roar of voices
between half past 13 and 1 o'clock. At
the latter hour Speaker Carlisle announced
the time for the mooting of the houses , for
the purpose of counting the electoral votes
for president and vice-prosiiioiitof the United
States. The senate now iippeircd. It came
in in double file. Leading the column wcro
Scrgeant-at-arms Caimdy nnd his deputy ,
Jim Christy. Immediately behind them
walked ths venerableBossoU , door-keeper of
the senate. Ho carried in either hand a
walnut box about fourteen niches square. In
those were the precious documents which
have boon under tuo combination lock of a
largo safe and the charge of special guards
ever since they wore delivered by the messengers
sengors from the various states. Behind
Bassctt walked the two special police from
the senate , who have acted as guards of the
votes. Thou came the senators arm in arm ,
double file. Mr. InfralU , president pro teui-
pore of the senate , m tbd lead. In joint con
vention Senator Ingalls presided eVer the
joint convention , and us ooti as ho took the
chair announced that the ' law of March , 1837 ,
which directed the couu'ting of the electoral
votes under which the joint convention of
the two houses "vould to-day act , provided
that the senate shouldfslt on the right hand

Scats hud been vacated by the members
nearest the speaker's chair on either side for
the semite , and upon this- announcement the
democrats moved over to'givo place to their
faupcnor legislators.
"All but Senators Pluinb , Paddock nnd
Hansom wore seated.on the democratic side.
The three named were opposite on the re
publican side. Directly in front und to the
right of the presiding officer wcro two
lounges. On these were seated Senators
Merrill , Hoar , Oawos and Sherman ( all re
publicans ) , a quartctto of the oldest men in
the upper body of congress. Thoircombined
ages aggregate S81 years. On the next
lounge were Senators Blair , Payne , Gibson
nnd Coke one republican and three demo
crats. Ex'-Sonator Ferry , of Michigan , with
his great Hewing beard , came in with Sena
tor Wilson , of Iowa , and sat down with the
active statesmen- . Blinked up around the
speaker's desk were the page forces of both
branches of congiess. ' There were almost
a hundred of the littlq follows , nnd it was
with some difllculty that their chatter was
suppressed. f
There was celerity in every movement of
the proceedings. It vyns Just two minutes
past 1 o'clock when Senator Ingalls arose
In his scat , and striking the desk with the
gavel , announced Iho purpose of the Joint
convention in a clear ringing voice. Scarcely
had u do/en words escaped his lips when Iho
roar of voices subsided , and there was per
fect stillness. Senators Manderson , of Nebraska - *
braska , and Harris of ' .Tennessee , nnd Repre
sentatives Baker of Now York , and Ermon-
trout , of Pennsylvania , were scaled In the
chairs of the reading clerks. These were the
tellers selected by the presiding ofllcers of
the two houses to examine and read the
Senator Manderson took the llrst turn nt
reading. Ho read the certificate of the stale
of Alabama. Although he Is a splendid
render , iho long cerlillcnto became monoto
nous before it was finally completed. Then
Senator Harris began to read the returns from
Arkansas. When thu reading from this slate
was ubout half through Senator Edmunds
strolled in , alone , and as ho walked down the
central aisle attracted considerabloutlcntlon.
This astute statesman was president pro
tempore of the senate just four years ago ,
and presided at the joint convention of the
two houses that read the vote which elected
Cleveland and Ilcndrlcks.
As soon as Senator Harrison had com
pleted the reading { or Arkansas , Senator
Edmunds arose and aslfuil unanimous con
sent that Instead of reading the returns In
full that the tellers be permitted to make an
examination , and that wherever the returns
were regular nml duly/ certified the results
should bo announced In a tormal way. There
was no objection , and the1 proceedings moved
twenty times faster. Instead of occupying
about llftcon minutes in the reading of u cor-
tlllcato of n state less than a minute was re
quired. There wore slioi intervals of delay
between the unnouncemonis , owing to com
plications In thoccrtiileatlon of state officers.
It required some originality on the part of
the tellers to make thu unnouiK'emenU under
Iho now order of things , and there were
some ludicrous Incidents connected there
with. For instance , wbon Senator Harris
took up Indiana , lie announced that the
fifteen electoral votes pf tie ) state had been
cast "for Grover Qlavolund. " Ab soon us
the words "Grover Cleveland" escaped his
lips the house burst into'a roar of laughter.
Then the venerable senator wont back to the
beginning and commenced to make the an
nouncement-again , and made thu llrst name
read "Benjamin CluYdJund. " Finally , however -
over , ho managed tos * y that Indiana had
cast her fifteen votes for Beujumln Hurt ison
and Lev ! P. Morton. Evidently that old gen-
tlomun could not reconcile himself to Uio fuct
that Indiana had gona republican ,
When Senator Munflersou announced that
Georgia hud cast her vote for Grover Cleveland -
land and Allan U. Thurmun , and upon giving
the size of the vote , added , "Being all the
votes cast for president and vice president
of the United States , " there was great
laughter , but it'quickly subsided , ns the cor-
icctncssof the statement was readily eccn.
Mr. Ermentrout , wbo is a democrat , In an
nouncing the vote of Florida used the name
"Lovl P. Thurnian , " und It took nearly u
inlcuto to bccuro ord r. The house was In
coed humor and was ready to laugh at any
of the mistakes It Dually became necessary
for Senator Ingalls to reprimind the house
nnd to Insist that thcro should be perfect
order , ns the proceedings wcro of the highest
vssoi x-i ixo TIM JnrM-i.Ti.
When nil the votes of the thirty-eight

SOMI : coxspicfors riacurs.
Quito n number of faces which have been
familiar hi one or the other houses of con
gress showed up to-day. Ex-Kcprcsentntives
Thud Pound of Wisconsin , Willis of Ken
tucky , and Wilson of West Virginia , wet o
prominent on the floor dining the counting of
the votes , Mr. Smalls of Caiollna , ( colored ) ,
whoso contest of the scat of Elliott , a white
man , has been pending for tlueo dnjs , nnd
who was later in the day voted out of the
house , stood on a chair on the icpublican side ,
and leaned against the mantel piece ? over the
giatc , making thu most pi eminent , and the
only black llgtito on the lloor. Representa
tive Dick Townshoml of Illinois carried u chair
down in thu center aisle , and Bearing himself
nnoii it , sat alone for some tlmo as If In deep
meditation. He was probably reflecting upon
the shortcomings of the democratic paity ,
which had brought about the result soon
to bo announced. Finally n little girl
approached and crawling upon his knco
offered him some consolation
The "Big Foui" candidates for the spenk-
orship of the Fifty-llrst comiress were all
prominent in their scats Messrs Heed ,
MolCmney , Burrows nnd Cannon. They nat
urally attracted very much attention from
the struugcis in the galleries. Klchclleu
Hobiuson of Brookhn , the long white haired
and smooth faced Irishman , who , as a mem
ber of the Foity-soventh congress , used to
twist the Uritisli lion's tail and pummel John
Bull , but who luft the democratic party last
j ear ami contiibutod largely to the succ'ss
of Harrison and Morton , occupied his old
seat down near the fiout low m front of the
sneaker's desk. The senators as a body
showed up in sharp contrast to the members
about them They are older men as a rule ,
and have boon used to much gi eater dignity
in their proceedings. Very few of them con
versed nt any time duimg the counting of
the votes.
From the very moment Senator Sherman
sat down upon the lounge and the tellers began
gan to road the returns ho never took his
eyes off iho pi Deciding. Sherman is one of
the best observers and most careful listen
ers In congress. Ho never loses sight of
what is going on about him The counting
of the votes and all ot the incidental pro
ceedings occupied exactly one hour and ttneo
Within fifteen minutes after the result of
the decision was announced the two houses
wore both engaged in discussufg incidents
uftecting the franchise of votes in thu south
the senate , on Mr. Evart's proposition to
investigate election outiagcs in Texas , and
the house closing the debate on the Smalls-
Elliott contested election in South Caiolma.
THE Tviurp HIM. .
Chairman Mills to-day placed In the hands
of the republican /numbers / ol the house com- ' '
iiilttoo on ways and moans , the report of the
majority against the senate tariff bill. The
minority have asked for time in ivhich to ex
amine the majority rcpoit nnd prepare what
they will have to say upon the subject. The
minority icpoit will probably bo put into
shape oy next Monday and will bo laid before -
fore the full committee on ways and means
on that day or on Tuesday , when it is ex
pected that the bill will bo reported back to
the houso. Tlio majority lopoit was
written by Chairman Mills. It occupies
twenty-seven printed pages , regular execu
tive document form , and by froa traders is
regarded as "n slashing nnd exceedingly
strong argument" against the republican
proposition on the tarirt. It attacks viciously
the republican proposition to increase cer
tain duties while lowering others , mid char
acterizes the republican tariff principles as
being m the inteicst of the monopolists und
manufacturers , The bill , when it goes back
to the house , will contain about all of the es
scntial elements of the 01 iglnal Mills bill. It
will have in it fico wool , the
original Mills proposition regarding sugar ,
woolens , Internal revenue , etc. It is believed
the bill will bo taken up for debate some
time next week , nnd it will bo discussed
whenever appropriation bills are not before
the house. Inasmuch as the majority of the
committee on ways and means do not recom
mend non-concurrence or ask for n confer
ence committee , it is not at all probable that
a conference will bo ordered on thu measure
or that u ilnal vote will bo taken upon it.
The bill in its amended form is to bo simply
reported buck to the house , and thu chances
are to bo taken for debate and liual action.

\\ltltout nuking an effort to stop the bloody
