Remarks That Show How Many People
Knew How It Would Go Color Una
Trouble Echoes of the Fight.
New Orleans; Sept. 8. Sullivan took
bia defeat of Wednesday night very hard
yesterday. He found some solace, how
ever, iu the flowing bowl during the day,
and while his friends would not let him
.get out on the street, they permitted him
to get on a comfortable jag in his room.
And shortly before the fight Brodie re
marked contemptuously: "Corbett whip
Sullivan! Give me airl"
ytasterson Knew It All the Time.
Bat Masterson, of Denver, said: "The
battle resulted just as I said it would when
the match was made. Sullivan was al
ways an overrated man, and I have con
tended that he was such since he had any
reputation as a fighter. It was proved
last night that he could not fight a little
bit. He is a rank counterfeit, and always
was. I believe that Fitzsimmons or Jim
Hall, middle weights, could whip him,

As the visit was unsuccessful a note was
sent around by Corbett making an offer to
spar with him in a benefit at any time or
place Sullivan should choose. To ths
note no reply was returned.
The Dig Fellow's Party Leaves.
The Sullivan party was a sorry one.
The same men who backed Sullivan had
or must of them had backed both Mo
Auliffe and Dixon. They all considered
the chances of "Sully's" victory much
greater than the chances of the others
and accordingly they almost to a man
had doubled up on the last fight. The
odds were so steep that they had to bet
big money to win a moderate amount and
no end of them were almost flat broke at
the result. The losers began to leave
town during the day and by nightfall
there was a considerable exodus of crest
fallen sportingmen. The Sullivan party
left the city at 8:30 o'clock over the Queen
and Crescent road.
Charley Johnston's Opinion.
Sallivan's backer, Charley Johnston,
said: "John was in perfect condition and
as strong as he ever was. He fought a
square, brave fight and showed that he
had as much gameness as any man who
ever pulled oil a shirt in the ring. During
the light he didn't ask for a drink of
water until the battle was almost over.
Almost at the close of the tight Sullivan
said, 'I'm all right, be can't hurt me,' and
remember he said that after he had re
ceived truly terrible punishment. As for
mo, I thought the i.iue was up after the
second round, when I saw that no matter
how he tried John could not land ou Cor
bet." Old Tom Allen took a widely dif
ferent view. He said that ha was not in
the least surprised. He always did con
sider Sullivan a very much overrated
Carries Ills Ilonors Gracefully.
Jim Corbett carried his honors grace
fully. He spent yesterday, or most of it,
receiving the congratulations of his
friends. Billy Brady was the happiest
man in town and went abou ; with his big
charge, his face wreathed in smiles. Iu
the fourth act uf Brady's "Alter Dark"
Mr. Henry Mclnerney escorted the new
champion on the stage and presented
him with the. Olympic's $25,X) purse.
Corbett responded by saying that it was in
New Orleans that he started at the foot of
the ladder and in New Orleans he reached
the top of it. He closed by saying that he
would always have a soft spot in his heart
for the people of New Orleans.
THE PUGILISTIC COLOR LINE.
Notice Given the Olympic Club to Look
a Little Out.
New Orleans, Sept. 9. The colored
people on the levees are so triumphant
over the victory of the nero, Dixon,
Tuesday night that they are loudly pro
claiming the superiority of their race, to
the great scandat of the whites, who de
clare that they should not be encouraged
to entertain even feelings of equality,
much less of superiority. The Olympic
club management have about decided not
to hold any more colored contests. The
Daily States prints the following editorial
ou the subject, and it seems to express the
feelings of a large number of people:
Can't Tolerate It Sooth.
The action of the Olympic club iu
matching Skelly-Dixon, a negro against a
white boy, has caused a good deal of sharp
criticism and much indignation, which
was freely voiced ou the streets yesterday.
Thr.t kind of thing wijl do in the
north, but here it will only arouse a bitter
feeling between the races, which will lead
to bloody affrays, and will also injure the
Olympic club itself by arraying public
sentiment against it."
HINDSIGHT SURER THAN FORESIGHT.
So Many Men Who Knew HoVfit Would
lie Others Who Found Out.
New Orleans, Sept. 8. Mike Brady,
of Lawrence, Mas., who won quite a bit
of money on Corbet t changing from Sul
livan at tne last minute saiu: It was
simply a repetition of the Fitzsimmous
Deinpsey battle in the same ring. Cor
bett -is a larger edition. Sullivan was
nevr in it at any stage of the fight. . He
was of no use whatever and could only
top Corbett's blows either with his face
or belly. I think Sullivan has been placed
on his proper level as a fighter by Cor
bett, who is one of the cleverest men I
ever saw stand in a ring."
Jlmnie Feels Very Melancholy.
Jimmie Nelson, one of the trainers of
jacK MCAuunc, was neart broken over
the defeat of Sullivan. "I lost $1,00 on
the big fellow; but this ia not what makes
me feel so bad. Dick Roche gave me f 1,000
for the)work I did for McAuliffe, and Jack
presented me with f800. I pat all of that
on Sullivau to win $1,200. Two rounds be
fore the knock-out I walked away from
the ring with tears la my eye. I could
not bear to stay there and see Sullivan
slaughtered. No, there is no doubt of Cor
bett'a superiority. . He fought fairly and
Was very much the better man."
Sullivan like a cat with a mouse. Sulli
van could not hit him. It was a sure
thing from the fifth round." Howie Hod
gens, of Boston, who won about $1,103 in
this city ar.d Boston, said: ''Corljett
jabbed his left into Sullivan's face and
stomach whenever lie wished. Corbett
kept the big duffer movitig all the time.

Mitchell Heglns Talking Again.
London, Sept. 9. Charles Mitchell and
Frank Slavin are greatly pleased at the
result of Wednesday's fight in New Orleans.
Mitchell says he will bet Sullivan $3,000
that he can whip him in six rounds.
Mitchell wishes to meet Corbett for $10,0u0
x side, on either side of the ocean. Jack
son is also gratified at Corbett's victory.
He says he will uot challenge the I'ali
Tornian, but his title to the championship
if the world cannot be clear until he meets
ind defeats him (Jackson).
Was "Sully" Afraid of the "Nigger"?
New YoP.K, Sept. 9. The very signifl
zaut remark that Sullivan is reported to
lave made after the fight Wednesday
light when he advised Corbett to fijght no
More, as he would surely be beaten if he
(net Jackson, was well digested by the
uporting men here generally. Edward
Everett Bell expressed the general stuti
nent wheu he said that Sullivan htd
plainly shown that he was afraid of the
colored man, Jackson.
Corbett's Family in Good and Had Luck.
Sax Francisco. Sept. 9. Harry Corbett,
brother of Jim, now heavyweight cham
pion, states that he won $12,000 iu pools
on the fight. It has become known tUat
Mrs. Corbett, Jim's mother, was thrown
out of a buggy last week and had an arm
broken. No one was allowed to see her,
and the news of the accident was kept
from the newspapers and correspondents
so that it would uot reach Jim.
SUPPLIED A GREAT NECESSITY.
Plerrepont Morgan loes a Good Thing Tor
New York, Sept. 9. rierrepont Morgan

In the cholera situation. It was an un
doubted hardship that cabin passengers in
infected quarantined ships should be kept
ou those ships exposed, in alimited degree,
perhaps, to the infection, but somehow it
seemed that nothing could be doue for
them. There was talk of providing quar
ters at Sandy Hook, but the war depart
ment declined to give the land, as it was
needed for gun testing purposes.
Supplied a Rig Steamer.
Dr. Jenkins had determined to charter
a steamer himself and trust to the state
reimbursing him when he received the
teuder from Plerrepont Morgan of the
Sound ste-mer Stonington. It was
promptly accepted and the cabin passen

Washington, Sept. 9. Jas. C. Kellogg,
of Louisiana. United States consul at
Stettin, Germany, has been suspended
from duty by Secretary Foster, of the state
department, for negligence in performing
