New Orleans, Sept. 8. The city was
prize fight mad yesterday. The great
"go" between Sullivan and Corbett was
.11 that was talked about, and the fact
that it took $13 to get into the arena at
all, $20 for a reserved seat and $150 for a
box that held six persons did not in the
least dampen the ardor of those who
wanted to see the fight, and they were
tens of thousands in number, many of
CORBETT, MONARCH OF THE RING.
Itfaom had to cool their heels on the pave
ment, either for want of money or the
Impossibility of getting a seat at any
The Observed of All Observers.
Sullivan and Corbett rested during the
day, doing little work. Corbett was to
have gone to the Southern Athletic club,
but concluded to stay in the house all day,
thereby disappointing a large crowd who
wanted to do him honor. Sullivan went
to the Sportsmen's Gymnastic club, where
he took a light exercise, and then went to
his hotel and stayed until he went to the
Olympic club. Many bets were made dur
ing the day, the odds being from two to
three to one on Sullivan.
A Too Certain Investor.
Sullivan's backers were very confident.
One man went to the platform where
pools were sold and asked "How long do
you keep open tonight?" lie said his
train left at 10:30 and he had five tickets
on Sullivan and wanted to collect them
Before the train left. The fight would
not last long, be said. The ticket seller
intimated that he was mistaken and so
he was, for he got left both as to train and
The Color Line Again.
Among Dixon's frinds in this city Is a
colored lawyer named Vance, whom the
manager of the club refused to permit to
enter the arena. Dixon being a profes
sional was tolerated, and he immediately
gave it out flat that he would go too. He
went to President Noel and said quietly
that Vance must be allowed to remain.
Vance remained and tbu the color line
was broken for once.
Preparing for the Frank
Corners were tossed-up for in the after
noon and Corbett won. choosing the
"lucky" corner the one chosen by Mo
Auliffe and Dixon. At 8:40 the house
waa packed. The gloves were weighed
mad found all right. It was announced
that Billy Delaney and Prof. John Don
aldson (of St. Faulk with Daly, Dillon
and Mike Donovan would be in Corbett's
corner, while Sullivan would be attended
by Johnson. McAnliffe,Lannon and Casey.
The Conquering Heroes Come.
Sullivan reached the ringside at 8:51 and
rvn-bett Immediately after. They were
both stripped from waist np. Sullivan
wore brierht green trunks and Corbett
white and slate color. A moment later all
bands collected in the middle of the ring
niyl shook hands, handlers and alL It
was announced that Sullivan weighed 213
pounds and Corbett 187. Professor Duffy,
the referee, ran from corner to corner loek
ing out for bandages and bodies and
Waists, and finding none, ordered things to
go on. When the five-ounce gloves were
distributed Sullivan had trouble getting
bis hands into hi. Corbett was ready in
an instant. S?ul!ivun laughed with his
trainers and handlers as though he had
told a funny story of his own, after he had
shaken bauds with "Pompsdour Jim."
THE GLADIATORS AT WORK.
X0lBt Made on K h Konnd of the Great
Following is the fight by rounds: -' '
First Bound This was a ridiculous ex
hibition of prize fightmy. tullivan mane
no less than seven feints with Lis left for
Corbett, but Corbett ran around the ring
each time and no blow was struck.
Second Corbett made no effort to do
anything but walk around. Tbe big fel
low stood up leisurely and looked at Cor
bett and then let go a left on Corbett's
shuulder and a clinch followed. On the
break away Corbett touched him on the
breat. Another clinch followed and Cor
bett tried to land his left on Sullivan's
face. Jim did got in a slight blow- on the
stomach before the second round ended
anil the crowd was happy.
Third Sullivan missed a left-hander for
the jaw, and then touched him on the
stomach. It was a rattler, of no harm,
however. The lirst pood blow struck was
by Corbett, who ran in on top of a run by
Sullivan. Corbett also reached two lefts
on Sullivan's body. Whenever Sullivan
led Corbett ducktd ami John could not
touch him. This occurred three times.
Fourth Sullivan made two runs at
Corbett, lut Jim ran away and no blow
was struck. Sullivan continued to run in
on him, but Jitu's feet were too good for
the big fellow and he slipped away like a
good sprinter. Sullivan langhed at the
business and Corbett let his left go lightly
on John's face. John laughed the more
and returned his left on Corbett's back as
Jim turned away. It looked like a foot
race, excepting two light blows that Cor
bett got in on the champion's face.
First HlooU for Corbett.
Fifth Sullivan caught Corbett a fairly
bard blow on the chin, but Corbett
clinched, and nobody was hurt. Sullivan
missed with the left, and followed that
with a trifle on the shoulder with the left.
Sullivan made a rush and Corbett went
at him. What followed is hard to describe.
Corbett smashed him with right and left
on the stomach and face, and had the big
fellow's nose bleeding in no time. Corbett
hammered him as a Dixon could smack a
Skelly, and the great champion became so
surprised that some persons said he was
groggy. The activity aud cleverness shown
by Corbett was so admirable that the house
got up and yelled.
Sixth Corbett jumped away like a cat
and worried the big fellow, getting in two
light blows on the stomach. Sullivan
missed one left hauder for the face, but
otherwise nothing was done iu the round.
Corbett Does Some Knshing.
Seventh Two slaps ou the body, one
from each, opened this round, and after a
bit of sparring Corbett let his left go on
John's stomach. John did not seem to
mind it, but Corbett went at him and
gave him two good smacks on the face
with his left and two more soon after.
Sullivan's nose was bleeding again freely.
Corbett ran in and rushed Sullivan to the
ropes, letting go right and left on the big
fellow's body. Sullivan could make no
return. He was tired when he went to
bis corner, though he had done nothing in
the rouud but take puuishment.
Sullivan Worried and Tired.
Eight Sullivan came out worried look
ing. He made a left lunge at Corbett
but Corbett ducked cleverly. In a rally
Bu!livan landed in right on the ribs, but
Corbett got in two good left jabs on the
body, one in the face, and again two light
ones on the face and two on the body.
Sullivan seemed to be played out or wait
ing for a chance to land the knock-out
Ninth Corbett again led out but with
out effect. Sullivan led left, but Corbett
ducked, Then Sullivan gave him a back
bander on the face with little harm and
gave him another lett on the shoulder.
Sullivan did not show any want of wind,
although Corbett hit him five times, one
after the other, three on the body and
two on the face. Corbett was away ahead
on points, but his blows did not seem to
weaken the big fellow, who appeared only
CLEVER WORK BY CORBETT.
lie Seems Able to Hit and Get Away with
Tenth Corbett stood up to his man like
a major and the men eyed each other like
panthers. Sullivan let go his left for the
jaw, but only touched lightly. Sullivan
missed with the left. Both landed left on
the face, but weakly. The same agaia.
Sullivan's left found Corbett's face light

jumped back. Corbett landed left on face.
Sullivan got left in on face lightly.
Kleventh It now began to look like a
Ion? fight. Sullivan could not get in a
straight blow on the clever Californian
and Corbett could not hurt John I. when
he did land. A couple of light p.-vwes and
a good deal of running around by Corbett.
Corbett bit Sullivan in the face with left

Twelfth Corbett got in his left three
times in the stomach within throe seconds,
getting away each time and running
around. Great cleverness was shown by
Corlett in the way he jabbed and got away,
but his blows did not seem to be effective.
Sullivan now made arush, butCorbett ran
away, and when became back he laughed.
Sullivan tried the same thing twice now,
and each time got a jab with the left on
Thirteenth Sullivan bad a weary look
when he came from bis corner, and then
let go his left. He could not get there, as
Corbett ran away. This scene was repeated.

thin round, except one light blow by Car

Fourteenth Sullivan led left on Cor
bett's neck and Corbett landed left on
neck, and both countered left on face.
Corbett landed two lefts on the face, and
in another attempt both missed. ach

blow with the left. No blow struck in the
roand would have broken a pan o( glass.

4 Fifteenth Sullivan went in to "do"
Corbett this time and rushed Jim three
times. The Californian's long reach held
John at hay and the' big fellow could not
break in under the guard. On the con
trary, Corbett's left found Sullivan's face
twice. In two more rushes by Sullivan,
Corbett held him off and pluuked John L.
on the ribs and stomach with left. Sul
livan hat! become very ugly looking be
fore the end of the rouud, but Corbett did
not miud that a bit. He went on dancing
away from blows as before.
John I More Worried Than Ever.
Sixteenth A mutual rush occurred at
the opening of this round, but both missed
their blows. Sulllivan fell short with a
right-hander, and Corbett hit him on the
nose lightly. This Corbett followed up
with a jab in the stomach and two on the
nose with the left. Sullivan appeared to
be getting deserate. He went at Corbett
cautiously, but hard. Corbett was not
there. John Li. seemed more worried than
ever, especially when he received another
tap on the nose from Corbett's left.
Seventeenth Sullivan succeeded in get
ting a little left on Corbett's face; with
this exception there was only fibbing dur
ing the round. The house had a good
deal to laugh at in the mens' actions, but
nothing to get excited over.
Dandy JiniH Hits Sully at Will.
Eighteenth Corlietl's cleverness in tap
ping Sullivan and getting away was greatly
admired up to this time, and when he
jabbed the big fellow four times on the
face in succession the spectators raised a
howl. Sullivan here got in a left on Cor
fu's breast, but it did not hurt. Then
Ccrbett touched John L. up for two right
handers ou the body amid more howls.
The people s-jemed to be with Corbett.
Nineteenth On coming together Sulli
van hit Corbett on the neck with the left
pretty hard, and Corbett countered with
the left on the stomach. Sullivan missed
a left meant for the face, and Corbett
laughed at him. At that Sullivan's face
took on a savage smile, aud he chased Cor
bett around the ring. Corbett again came
forward nd landed his left on Sullivan's
stomach and face aud, his right on the
big fello.ir's stomach.
HOW ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN.
Sullivan at the Mercy of the Man He
Thought "Kany." 1
Twentieth Sullivan's left struck Cor
bett's breast as they came together in the
center of the ring, but only two seconds
occurred afterward before Corbett sailed
into him. With left and right Corbett
caught Sullivan on both sides of the bead
close to the ropes and this same dose the
Californiau repeated within another sec
ond. Corbett followed this up with seven
more blows of the same kind and Sullivan
could not protect himself. Sullivan could
SULLIVAN "THE KING IS DEAD.
Dot get in a single blow in return. He
was plainly groggy and weak. Cofbett
was very fresh and confident at the sound
of the gong, at which time he was smash
ing Sullivan at a great rate left and right
ou both sides of the head.
Corbett Goes in to Finish.
Twenty-first In regard to this trifling
minute and a half which decided the
heavyweight championship of the world a
great deal might be said even in that
short time. That the fight woull end in
that round no man present believed. Sul
livan came from his corner in the same
shape that be had shown for a dozen
rounds before. He had the same cross ex
pression on his face aud seemed to be as
strong as at any time during the fight.
He continued to do the "edging in" and
Corbett followed his origiual tactics of
"edging away." This sort of trade was
not going on very long, not more than tea
seconds, when Corbttt jumped back,
rushed forward, hit John on the nose, and
John was dazed.
The Great "Sully" a Chopping Block.
Corbett went at him further and the
same old nose was again smashed and
more blood came out. John looked
astounehd, and Corbett jumpedjback with
the merry smile of a schoolboy with a big
apple. Suddenly he retained to the fray and
before Sullivan knew what was the mean
ing of the Cali fornian's happy look he got
a crack on the side of the head that made
him dose his eye. With this Corbett
was on top of him la no time. Left hand
on one side of the head and right hand on
the other; poor John I Sullivan became
an unconscious, beaten man. He stag
gered about on his pins for a second or so
and while displacing this fatal weakness
Corbett went down oo him again, as a
crow light on corn where there is no
dummy in the middle of the field.
The One Knoek-Down In the Flgka,
A right on the ear and a left on the jaw
settled the business. The last blow sent
the great John L. Sullivan to the floor
vcitb a thump, the second time in all Bis
long career as a fighter that he had ever
been knocked down. But be was dowa
this time for good and finally. It waa a
clean and clever knock-out blow. Sullivan
doubled np his legs as tboagh ln pain, but
in another instant seemed to collect hli
senses and made an effort to rise. He
failed in that, and tried the second time
with the same result. He was knocked
out, pure and simple.
John I Was Indubitably "Out."
Ills se'eonds had to come to htm and as
sist him to his corner. Even then John
I was "out" and did not know what was
going on. It it was not less then two min
ntes befor John L. recovered himself.
Meantime Corbett bad retired to his cor
ner, on the order of the referee, while the
man who has so long oeen Known as me
champion of champions was counted out
and carried to his chair..
Rejoicing In Corbett's Corner.
haa the, ten seconds were at last af an
end Fforessor Mike DOnovan, bi tne new
York Athletic club, and W. A. Brady,
Corbett's manager, sprang to the stage
and flung their arms around the young
or n a nnw t.tlA chamDion nUGTiliSt
of the world and the winner of $35,000 in
purse and stake, as well as a reputation
that will turn perhaps ten times that
amount into his exchequer. Corbett re
turned their salutations with a hearty em
brace, while the tears welled up into bis
eyes. Others jumped up to the clever Cal
ifornian and hugged him. They had proba
bly won money at 2 or H to 1 on Jim.
Doesn't Know "Where He Is At."
While this hugging was going on Sulli
van's handlers were pouring water over
him and placing ammonia to his nose and
Tniif V trouble hrouuht him around.

"Say, am I licked? Did that young fellow
do it?" McAuliffe sorrowfully admitted
that that was the case. John did not Bay
any more until Corbett came over aud
shook hands with him.
Takes nis Medicine Gracefully.
John got up, took Corbett's hand, and
then spoke to the crowd: "Gentlemen,"
said the ex-champion, "I am only glad
that the championship has been wou by
an American." This speech brought down
the house as it had not been affected dur
ing all the week. There was a great,
wild and wooly west, hot southern, mad
enthusiastic yell when Corbett knocked
Jobu L. Sullivan out, but that noise was
not a marker to the wild, mad-house
demonstration that the gang made when
John L. said those manly words.
