would take place until they saw the
Combatant! (MO to face in the ring,
od then they bad scarcely settled
down to in enjoyment of the contest,
before it was ended.
Tii.j battle was surprising to the
point of amazement, because the mm
who bad fought Suliivan to a draw in
3 hour and 10 minntes in Chantilly
was today never a menace, even to
Corbett, was wnippsd in two rounds
and only went into the thirl round
to be finished according to
Qieensbnry rules. After Corbett
began fighting he teemed to
consider Mitchell nothing but a chop
ping block. He abandoned nearly
very idea of defence aud fooght hie
man savagely, and with a manitest de-f-rminaiion
to finish him qnickly.
Yet, even in encii a battle, Corbett
suffered not mnob more than be might
in a lively set to with bis trainer. He
left the ring without a in irk, leaving
his senseless opponent to be carried
THE CniTtUS WERE AMAZED.
There are some things which amaze
the critics wiio are discussing the great
but brief battle from every point of
view, bnt they come only to one opin
ion that Corbett is ainaiveloas pugi
list. There will nver he another word
beard abont Corbett's lack of hitting
power. He hammered Mitebtll terri
bly today and deliv-red his blows witn
snap, precision and, what some have
d-ni. d hiin, terrific force.
In the ring, stripped, he looked big
ger than when he fought Sullivan, yet
Mitchell, although four anil three
fourths inches shorter, did not look
fmall in comparison. Mitchell is fre
quently described as a big little man,
and so is it, that he gives this impres
sion, that no one who saw them
today, had any sense of a big man
being matched with a little one.
While Corbftt had a real, although not
very apparent advantage In siz. he had
none In condition. Mitchell was fit to
battle if he evr was, and looked as
young as when be met Sullivan in the
Madison fqnare garden, doing over
and over these poitlll as th critics are
doing tonight, they are compelled to
ngree in one conclusion, that Corbett is
vastly Mitchell's superior i science,
and that of course, hus been the qual

Jacksonville. 1 Jan 2.1 At two
minutes past 2 o .ock Joe Vendig en
tered the ring and presented Billy
Madden. If Billy h id anything to say
he was not allowed to miy it then as a
tremendous yell announced the appear
ance of Corbett. The champion en
tered the ring at 2 0!t, wearing a long
chocolate colored bath robe, a j,Mr of
black trrjusers and a white sweatur
over bis fighting costnme.
He looked serious and business-like
as be walked across the stage while
the crowd cheered wildly, He tested
the ring ropes by throwing his body
against them in Severnl places, and
seeming to find that satisfactory, in
spected the floor of the stage and
busied himself crushing and scattering
with his feet come lumps of rosin.
Then he walked to the southeast
corner which his seconds had
won by a toss, remarking that
the place was pretty cold, Then
bis seconds and attendants gather
ed around his corner and began mak
ing many little nreparations for bis at
tention and comfort. Palls, bottles,
towels, linaments and fans '.vers dls
tributed about in their proper places
and most of them were not touched
during the tight. Theonly one of Cor
belt's attendants the spectators recogn
ised was Jack Dempsey ami that vet
eran bowed and smiled in response to
tha cheers which greeted him.
The crowd never stopped oheering
and yelling encouragment to Corbett
until a sudden and sharp yell near the
arena entranc announced the approach
of Mitchell. The Englishman received
a hearty welcome, although the ap
plause was rather perfunctory and
evidently irtven in a spirit of fairness,
He was aim wrapped in a chocolate
colored bath robe. ll wore In addi
tion a little soft travelling cap jauntilv
perobed on one side of his bead and
a pair of black half hose. He
was laughing and jolly as be
entered the ring and seemed especially
to consider it a good joke when Hilly
Madden banded him a roll of bills
They were the $9,000 stakes constitut

Then he went to bis n rrthwect corner
and sat down Ho grinned and
nodded as he looked over to Corbett
and the latter nol led in return, but
not in a very friendly manner.
Hilly M id lei took advantage of the
vocal exhaustion of the crowd to an
nounce that Corbett would be attended
by John Don dd son, Hilly Delan-v,
John McVey, Jack Dempsey and Wil

were produced front each corner aud
carefully Impacted by every one con

each man elected to wear a pir of his
own set. The gloves weigh id five
ounces each, Corbett's gloves were on

when Referee Kelly Oallc 1 the ni-n to
gether to receive a word of advice
about breaking awav aud to shako
hands. Tbey accepted the advica, but
Corbett declined to shako bands.
When the men returned to their cor
ners to strip. Billy M idden got in his
deadly work by announcing that Ed.
Smith, of D?nver. challenged the win
ner to fight for ilO. 0 d a si te. Corbett
smiled at this aud Mitohall looked as
it he did not have the happiness of
knowing who Ed Smith of Denver
might be When Corbett stripped to
fighting shape, it WSJ teen that his
whole body was ba'e excepting a loin
cloth fastened to hit waist by bis
colors. Mitchell was less nearly nule,
having on a pair of black tronki which
covered him half way from his waist
to his knees.
When the men were both ready the
the time-keepers were still fussing over
their watches and Corbett called out
to the referree, ' Batter hurry np.Klly,
its getting cold here." All this time
Mitchell was chaffing with bis at
tendants, laughing, and in every ap
pearance an 1 manner was utterly un
like the eager ynnn Ciliforniin, who
was like a honnd straining at his leash.
At last all technical preliminaries so
dear to the hearts of veteran ring at"

satisfaction. Referee1 K;lly said: "Gst

THE BATTLE BY ROUNDS.
Corbett F,rst Ste.d. HI a Antagonist Up
and Thn Lft Fly.
Jacksonville, Jan 35. Following
is the battle by round':
Round I Corbett sprang from his cor
ner as if be had suddenly bean released
from restraint, and Mitchell, in a more
leisnrely Banner, walked to !tue center to
meet bitn. Tney began fiddling, with Cor
bett advancing and Mitchell giving
ground. Both men were cautiously foel
iug their way, hut all thedlsnosltlon to grf
together Was display ed by Corbett. With
easy, light "action, without so much as a
feint, Corbett Worked bis opponent to the
ropes and along each side of the square.
Mitchell cleverly escaped from each cor
ner after a complete tour of the stage.
Mitchell feinted with his left and then led
with it for Corbett's ribs, but Corbett wa
elsewhere in a flash. Corbett led his left
tod landed a glancing blow on .Mitchell's
jaw. The Bnghsbinan clinched. After
the break, Mitchell landed on Corbett's
wind and got Jim's left on his noe iu re
turn. Mitchell then led twice In quick
succession, Dut ruil-u earn time to
reach the shifty Californian. On the
third attempt be Ian le I lightly on
Corbett's wind, but to ,k in pay a
bang on the nose which reddened that or
gen. Charlie's next lead reached -inn's jaw
bnt lightly, an I again for a there touch
the Englishman took another hard one
flush in the face that jolted tho head back.
Time. Iu this round Corbett had done
enough to make Charley take a in ire seri
ous view of the situation, and, before the
rmnd wasover, Corbett wm laughing ut
his opponent. Jim was readier and rather
niter in obeying the referee's instructions
to break away.
Itonnd 2 Corbett's eyes, while ho was in
his corner, were on the bell rope, and th
instant he saw If pulled he jumped up and
was in the middle of the ring when the
gong sounded. Work wis resumed by
Mitchell bad i ii g with his left and catch
ing Jim squarely on the mouth. Tnen,
for the 11 rat and only time, he tried forcing
th-tight, but his blows fell short and a
little aiiajsselvo work seemed to discour
age him. Corbett again Monad the offens
ive and soon had .Mitchell iu a corner
where bo lauded his left hnnvily on
the month, Tbro was a brisk rally
In which Mitchell received some stiff
punches in tho Mflk and cleverly dodged a
right swing. Toward the close of the
round Corbett had worked Charlie over to
the ropes where, after a mix up, he lauded
n .freight left drive on Charley's left
temple and dropped him. At this point
Corbett utterly lost bis head, If it bad
not been for Referee Kelly's heavy re
straining baud he would then and there
lost the tight on a foul. Ho wns frantic to
get at his man and finish him, actually
struggling with the big referee to dash at
Mitchell every time the Kngiishmau got
up on one knee. The gong Hounded aud
the end of the fight win ilelaye I bv time.
Round Third During the minute's rest,
the referee very seriously warned Corbett
about fouling, and hi seconds implored
him to keep his head and not lose the
prize that was plainly his, if ho did not
foul. When the gong sounded Mitchell
came up slowly and Corbett sprang at
hlin. There was only one lighter in the
ring and that was Corbett. Mo rushed
Charley into a comer where, after punch
ing him In the nose with his left
aud drawing blood, ho swung on
his jaw aud knocked him down.
Again he lost bis bead and Kelly alone
could not keep him away from Mitchell,
who half dazed, was waiting his ten sec
onds. Thu attendants from Corbott's cor
ner jumped In tboriug uml pushed Corbott
away from his victim. Their arguments
fell on deaf ears. Tho man was mad. The

Bvery word the referee said, the counting

all those sounds' were lost In the din f
Wild cheers, ns tll beaten, bleeding
Mitchell turned slowly on the floor mid at
last Staggered to his feet. Instinct
prompted him to out up his hands, but ho
stood a plain murk, defenceless and
daaad, as Corbett rushed at bin and
swinging his right, smashed a teri
filo blow square on Mitchell's jaw.
Toe Englishman fell heavily on bis side,
rolled over on bis lac', senseless and
knocked out. Corbett did not look at him
again. Any man who could have struck
that blow would know that the man who
received it Would have to be carried nut
of the ring Even before the formality of
counting out the defeated man bad been
gone through with, Corbett was being
bugged by bis delirious friends and at
tendants. Tue spectators wore nearly ns crazy
With excitement as the men on the
platform, and no one left the arua
until after Mitchell's seoonds had lifted
him up and carried him to his corner.
The ligutning like work of Corbett in
the round had been too rapid for most
of the sp ctators to follow and under
stand. Tney saw MitObell knocked
down three tim-s in rapid succession,
sow him stretched out and senseless
aud bleeding, but how it was done

hundreds of men who had been staring
at the deed tbey asked tu have ex

Expsrts Say It Was the Hardest One
Jacksonville, r'la., Jan. 85, -Those
whose exuerieuce at the ring side
enable them to keep their senses and
closely watch the ouly contestant in
the ring who could act saw
that Corbett had struck Mitchell that
last awful blow to not alone knock him
out, but to punish him also. There
was the hatred of years concentrated in
that blow, and a rage that could not
be controlled by Corbett himself, whicn
urged him to strike his antagonist
while he was struggling in the arms of
D.d.iney and Deinpsey were Strug
gling witii Corbett at one time and
scarcely ablo to hold him from rushing
at Mitchell while the latter was on
his knees. Delaney suddenly slapped
Corbett's face. It was not a love
tap by nuy mean-i, but a blow that
woald knock over many men. It
served its purpose for it brought
Corbett to bis senses and ho went
to bis seat. This was after the second
knock down in the third routid. Cor
bett remained in his seat until Kelly's
arm had swung nine times, indicating

that Sullivan delivers, but a blow that

T CAN now be aald definitely that

Washington from the list of invi
tation to the reeant state dinner ut

nol accidental. The legation was ig

The president is much annoyed by
the tone of Prosident Dole's letter to
Minister Willis under date of Dec. 27,
and incidentally by the minister's
course in nllowing it to ps on re
buked. In bis judgment, Mr. Willis
ought to have responded with a short
note demanding an li mined into retrac
tion of the insult cist upon the
government of the United States,
ami, if it hnd not been at once forth
coining, should have dem inded his pass
ports and left Hawaii without delay.
It would not be astonishing to learn at

the free-and-easy, undiplomatic way in
which Minister Tuurstoii has been
sprinkling interviews all along the
route of his trip across the continent.
It is reported that the latest instruc
tions to Mr. Willis nr to demand an
immediate withdrawal of President
Dole's offensive letter; and if this be
not complied with, Mr. Willis is to ask
