The Duval Club Demands Tollce Pro
Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 3. Manage!
Bowden, of the Duval Athletic Club,
went 'to St. Augustine today to get
Mitchell to sign the articles allowing
the club the privilege of naming the
place where the contest shall be held
If Mitchell docs not sign the club will
announce the affair to the world. The
passage by the city council last nigh
of an ordinance licensing glove contests,
the club claims, gives them a case for
damage against the city if it does not
give police protection to stop interfer
ence with the fight. This Is a new
phase of the case.

Each man will furnish his own gloves.
Within a short time, legal proceeding
will be instituted by the Duval clut
testing the legality of the contest. Ex

by the club people, but as It is a noto
rious fact thai no Jury eould be found
In Duval county to decide against the
battle, it Is pretty certain the outcome
will bo favorable to the club. If Gov
ernor Mitchell then sees fit to step In
and interfere, all plans for the fight in
Jacksonville will be dropped and new
battle grounds selected. The location
will of courpe be kept secret, until Jan

what course to pursue, to prevent the

Republicans Successful in Their
DEMOCRATS HAD NO QUORUM
The Tariff liili Will Probably Be
the First Biislness to lie
Washington, Jan. 3. When the senate
was called to order at noon there were
hardly a score of members in their
seats. There was considerable delay
before a ejuorum was secured. After
reading the Journal, Blackburn, of Ken
tucky, presented the credentials of Sen
ator Eppa Hunton, of Virginia, who
took the oath of office.
Frye presented a resolution declaring
that In the opinion of the senates dur
ing the Investigation by the committee
of foreign relations of our relation!
with Hawaii, there should be no Inter
ference on the part of the United
States for tht restoration of Queen
Llliuokalanl or the maintenance of the
Washington, Jan. 3. After reading
the Journal the Hawaiian fight began.
Boutelle, on behalf of the republicans,
bringing It up to antagonize the tariff
bill. McCreary, chairman of the for
eign affairs committee, sought to avoid
this subject by trying to make nn ar
rangement by which Friday and Sat
urday of this week should be set asldi
for the consideration of the resolution
reported by the foreign affairs com
mittee in lieu of the 111 tt and Boutelle
resolutions. Hltt, the head of the mi
nority of the foreign affair! committee
stated that Inasmuch as this proposi
tion gavo the republicans substantially
what they desired, nanlely, a time fixed
for debate on the Hawaiian matter, lje
would be gUd to accept it,
The house democrats failed to muster
a quorum, and until they do, the tariff
bill Is blocked. There Is little prospect
of a quorum toduy.
The republicans showed fight at the
outset aid scored the lir3t victory.
Before the time arrived" for AVllson to
take the lloor, McCreary trlod to ar
range an amicable agreement by whlcl
two days, Friday and Saturdayi should
be given to the consideration of the
Hawaiian resolution. Hltt, the republi
can leader of the foreign affairs com
mitted, expressed a willingness to ac
quiesce In the arrangement, but Bou
telle wanted to precipitate the question
Immediately by calling UP his resolu
tion. Both sides were ugly, but after
a lively row, the speaker held that
Boutelle's resolution was privileged. The
democratic members of the ways com
mittee wore not willing to go ahead
with the Huwaliun discussion until the
tariff debate had been gotten under
way, however, and the question of con
sideration was raised against the Bou
telle resolution. The republicans ther.
executed a flank movement by refusing
to vote. The democrats found them
selves In the humiliating position ol
not being able to muslor a quorum. Af
ter revoking all leaves of absence, Wil
son reluctantly moved an adjournment
Thd democrats confidently expect t

FRYE'S RESOLUTION. ,
Opposed to Any' Interference in Ha
Washington, Jan. 3. The most signi
ficant thing in the session of the senate
today was the resolution Introduced by
Mr. Frye, declaring it the sense of the
senate that the administration should
commit no overt act of interference In
Hawaii pending the investigation of the
Imbroglio by the senate committee on
foreign affairs. The evident object of
the resolution Is to declare the sense of
the senate adverse to any American In
terference, either direct .or indirect,
should any coup d' etat be resorted to
for the purpose of restoring the queen
to the throne. The senator asked that
the resolution He upon the table for the
present, and it is expected he will make
It the subject of some pertinent re
marks before asking for its reference
to the commute on foreign affairs.
