GANS & I¶LEIN ON SEPTE aBR 9TH, 1850, California became a State. The name of the Golden State is unquestionably derived from Calif, the title of a successor to Mohammed. It indirectly comes from Calafia, an Amazonian Queen, whose kingdom, rich in gems of all descriptions, was called California. The motto of the State is Eureka-I have found SOMOOL COMMENCES MONDAY Your Boys will want a New Suit. We have them in all the latest styles.

Graphis Description of the Mill-Sully Breaks Down and Blubbers and Whines and Moans. New ORLEaws, Sept. 8.-Corbett was seen immediately after he entered hig dressing room after the fight by an Associated Prees reporter. When he came in two dozen or more men sprang forward to shake him hbad, but he pushed them back, saying, "Don't get excited; I know I won and I know you are all glad of it, but don't try to plaw me to death. Look at me, I am not excited, and why should you people be? Just get away from me." He then lay on his cot and was robbed down before being weighed. He tipped the smale at 174 pounds, showing that he only lost five pounds dur ing the fight. In answer to questions, Cor bett laid: "I knew what l could do. I bad been practicing for weeks to guard against his particular style of fighting and felt just as confident of winning as I did that I was alive." Bob Fitzeimmons knocked at the door and wanted to see Corbett. "Don't let him in," said the champion. "I don't want to see him. The big duffer would not some near me before the fight, and I don't want to see him nor." Fitzsimmons afterward peeked over the top of the door and called to Corbett, but Jim told him to get down, that he would have nothing to do with him. The big Cali fornian said be did not feel the least bit tired and bad worked ten times harder than that every day he trained for the fight. "I am satisfied that I could have whipped him very mueh sooner had I mixed and gone into hard infighting, but I was a trifle lear,. On several oceasions I was sorely tempted to close right in on him and do him quick, but my seconds kept at me to be cautious; that I was doing well and having all the best of it, and that I had better fight a' little shy of his right hand." When Mike Donovan entered the room Corbett sprang to his feet and shook hands with him very cordially. "Well, Mike, we got on to him at last. Mike, my boy, every word you said about Sullivan was right. He fought just as you said he would fight. and I followed your advice and here I am, winner and champion. I scarcely know how to thank you and express my grati tede to you." Billy Delaney, who really deserves great credit for getting Corbett in his present condition, as no trainer ever worked more faithfully than he did with Corbett, is highly elated over the victory. He said he did not only consid'rr Corbett the greatest fighter in the woWld, but that Corbett could sake Peter Jackson in the same ring he whipped Sullivan and whip the colored man as easily as he knocked out the big fellow. "This man, I tell von, is a wonder. Why, look at him. He has not got a scratch or even a red mark of any descrip tion on him to show that he had been fight. rug." At this time a messenger entered the room and informed Corbett that his wife was on the other end of the wire and wanted to talk to him. "Oh, I can't go now." said stalwart Jim, "just give her my love and tell her I am all right, feeling well and not hurt a bit." Turning to Mike Donovan he said: "I could go out and do a ten mile run without becoming the least bit weary. This fight was simply a walk ove and the moftect kind of a snap. The only thing I feel is a little soreness in my right hand from the last punch I gave him. With that exception I would never have known I had been fighting." Word was received from Charley John son, Sullivan's backer. He was willing to back Corbett against Peter Jackson or any man in the world for 520,000. Corbett says he is on top now and can afford to rest for awhile and let the other fellows come to him; that his day for begging at other men's doors has gone by. Corbett will leave for New York Friday morning on a decorated train, stopping over night at Birmingham. Ala., and Atlanta. Ga., the following night, and arriving in New York on Monday af ternoon in time for his boxing entertain ment Madison Square Garden. DESPITEFULLY UbED SULLY. Corbett Smashed Him Right and Left and Laughed in His Face. New OutaAxe, Sept. 8.-When the fight began Corbett same np prancing, very prancing. He teetered about Sullivan like a carpet amateur, and while the crowd laughed Sullivan smiled as though amused. So did Corbett, but one grew terribly seri one before the night had grown mutc older, while the other continued to smile it the face of his foe, and is smiling yet. Con. ing to the second round the crowd wee treated to what ham cono down in history as '"The Sullivan rush." His awful ri ha olw out, hut finding lodgement only for an in stant, as a glancing shot, on the back of the cat-like fellow, who wheeled suddenly and slammed his left on the big man's stomach. Yell? Did the crowd yell? It did, and with gusto. 'lsTheebrs for his foe's clever ness nettled the champion, though agein he smiled in a derisive way. whle Corbeit laughed in hi. face. Ih specacole was new. Old-timers neverbe fore had, seen any man laugh in blullivan's face. So it went on. There was an - slaught by the cltampion, but there was tio teetering. Then straight and swift as lightning, Corbett's lefi shot forth ai~d landad with a shock on Sullivan's jaigr. Sullivan would brook no such libertide. To be sure he hag not yet landed a blow uf any moment on Corbett. But after sucsh an affront be would kill him presnmptnoig foe. The bin fellow's jaws closed, his lower lip became pushed up againsa ite fellow ena the crowd cried, "See Sullivan's mug now.' Ottrbett heeded the injunction. Agama ht right shot away and ressnred, and, couldit be? Blood stained culllvan's noes an trickled over him lips.

Corbett shoved the champion oR. He staggered back, and thea began the final strokes. Corbett felt vie tory In reach and followed him man, elmth ming his right and left on hie now, jaw neck, oyes and mouth. Finally, wita a terrible swing, he knocked S6llive: olear off his feet and a mewlsn later the champion that wee lay flat on #u back.

The groal balk of what had been champion reeled and again went down, and the "ten -and out" of the retiree told that the battle was over. A more pitiable eight than was the cham. pion has seldom been seen in the prizt ring. Corbett leaped then and helped tk lift Sullivan to his chair. Sullivan could not recognize him. His head rolled help lemmly. Corbett shook his hand and he did not know it. A star had set, a new one had risen. BLUBBERING JOHN. Bawls Like a Calf Over His Defeat b) Corbett. NEW OanrEAs. Sept. 8.-Sullivan was am abject sight when he loft the ring. The Corbett party went away frat, in triumpht as he ought to have done, and the son gaered followed. A crowd was still maseed thiokly against the back of reserved seats watching every movement of the braised and suffering ex-champion. His body war covered with gore in the ring and he was too far gone to appreciate what had hap pened. His backers and seconds looked sorry as they gathered their goods in a cor ner and picked their way to the dresinp room. As Sullivan started out Chariem Johnson proposed a cheer for him, but iI was not the cheer that Corbett got. "Well, I don's want too much," said the defeated champion as he stumbled to the door of his room. "Corbett is now the greatest man in the world, and he is the only one that could lick me." When the little bodyguard got: into their room Sullivan threw himself on a lounge and broke down entirely. His self control was gone and in a moment he was blubber ing like a child. There wore willing at tendants by his side and they went to work with a will to cheer up the cx-champion, who was pitiable in the ruin of his hopel aad the madden halt in his career. In a lit tie while he freshened up physically. but his spirits seemed to go down in proportion with his recovery from the beating he re ceived. His upper lip was bruised and swollen to twice its natural size. There were blotches of red, raw as meat, on hie stomach where Corbett sent home that clever, vicious left, and his nce was out and bloody. It was a repulsive face. The sneer around the corner of the mouth had gone and the countenance held most of its ferocity. "I did not feel him but once," he blubbered. "The punishment did not hurt me early in the fight. It was in the last round that he troubled me. When he smashed me in the face, then I felt as though I was falling backward from a bridge into the water, and after that I don't remember anything," and a spell of crying came on. "Charley, I'm sorry you backed me and lost your money," came through his lips. It was a wail of distress, and Johnson fell sad. "Never mind, John," he said. "I don't mind the money. It's gone and what's gone is lost. Nobody can lick you but Corbett, and you are better than Mitchell. When the Englishman wants to fight you my money is at hand." BULLY GOT FULL, And Under the Influence He Babbles In a Maudlin Vein. NEw ORLAweS, Sept. 8.-It transpires that Sullivan, after his defeat last night, began undoing all the carefnl work of training which he and his trainers had been doing for weeks past. Defeat and chagrin, coupled with the absence of a motive for further training, doubtless led the man to resume his convivial habits. Others about him were drinking. No wonder Sullivan drank. His deep sleep this morning was teresult of potations. When he awak sued this morning he was taken over to the gymnasium club and there kept until the time when he could go with his people to the train on which the homeward journey was to begin at 8:80. The great giant presented a pitiable spectacle. The out on his nose was closed, but his eyes were blackened and his whole face swollen terribly. While ho tried to emoke the sodden butt of a cigar he talked in a maudlin vein, which in sober quiet he would not reiterate ard which in his present condition may not be put on record as his deliberate views. Sullivan Iays the greateet mtrems on the fact that he could not reach Corheta. "But I did not rpn away." the big fellow almost mobbed. 'Lock um up in a room. Just luck me in a room with him and mine what I can do with him. But he licked me. Yes, be did. he licked me, and let it go at that." he blurted. 'I give him all the credit he wants. Ha icked me square enough, hut I'm old, I an,. Let him go' through what 1 have; let him knock 'em all out for twelve pearm, and then see if he can do any hetter than I did. Yee, ho licked the champion and now he's eham pion. Let him take rare of it as good as I did. That'm all; I ain't kicking." And ho me he rambled on. did the de feated champion. After awhile ha went to lie down in the club hone. and fell asleep. Sullivan wee kept in aeclusion at the O munastie club until about five o'clock, when be was carried in a cab to the hotel. At 7:451 this evening the Sullivan party took rarriages at the hotel and started for the depot. The Fullman eleeper alonas was chartered by the Sullivan party and otherm who were going in the acme direction.

HOISTED YE[LOW FLAGS More Cholera Cases Are Reported ot Steamers Among the Quaran tine Fleet. A Refuge Camp Is Established a Bandy Hook for Cabin Passengers. now the Baggage or Cholera Suspects I Treated by the Health Autherities at Berlin. NEw Youx, Sept. 8.-The Normania an, Rugla hoisted the yellow fag again, and th same signal was flying at Hoffman island indicating the discovery of additions cholera cases this morning. Up to yester day evening there had been thirty-ow cases of sickness from the disease, ane eight deaths at this port. The stokers or the Normania seem to be the greatest sat ers. Eight of the crew of that vessel were transferred yesterday afternoon to Swin barns island. These men had only beh day before been taken back to the ship after a twelve hours' stay on Hoffman isl and, where they had been disinfected witl all possible thoroughness, along with 150 others. They were taken back to the shit apparently in excellent health. The doe tore will not admit positively that then eight patients have the cholera, nor wil they dewy it. Dr. Cyrus Edson, sanitary superintend ant, received a dispatch from Dr. Beibert who is in Berlin on behalf of the New Yor] health department, lie says: "Berli, steams all articles from Hamburg one hour The highest opinion is that all rivers it northern Europe are infected, and nel outbreaks are expected. The law will stol all Russian immigration passing quaran tine. Months will be iafeaflcient to stemi out the disease. The only efficient methot for you in America is to steam immigran baggage or other articles, for at least ai hour. They must be steamed singly. or else immigration must be stopped. Thi geraps are everywhere. No port is safe." The borough board of health was seni from Atlantic Highlands to protest to Gov Abbet against the landing of passengers o infected ships on Sandy hook. he oher ough has provided a day and night water and land patrol service to that end. Dr. Jenkins later in the day accepter Bandy Hook as the cholera refuge for the cabin passengers of pest ships. He hope to obtain permission to use Fire islam also. In addition the steamboat Stoning ton has been purchased by J. Pierrepon Morgan for cabin passengers of detaines steamers. Cholera on board the Moravia has been to all appearances, stamped out. The Cite of New York and the La Bourgoyne left fo New York. Channcey M. Depew and score tary, and the wife and daughter of Sec eUary .oster were.takeo off the City o I'ew York. The steamer Elbe left quaran tine at three o'clock this afternoon. The Belgian steamer Waeeland, Captain Grant from Antwerp, which has been among the quarantine fleet in upper bay, was releajec this evening by order of the health author sties and proceeded to dock. The following letter, written on the Nor mania, Sept. 7, was received in the citi to-day at the office of the Evangelist, fron Rev. baniel Fisher, D.D., LL.D., president of Hanover college, Indiana: "In behall of the cabin passengers of this ill-fatec ship I appeal to you for help. We are per fently willing to be quarantined, but in the name of humanity and of civilization, noi to speak of Christianity, let the quarantine be at least rational and not barbarous, "We have not been sick in the cabin, ex cept in one case. which seems to have had almost no choleraic symptoms, and that occurred two days ago. We succeeded it getting the steerage away, but the crew cannot be removed. The ship must have them aboard.. One after . another t4*e sicken. Under these circumstances we scarcely dare hope that ultimately we shal escape. At any rate, when can such quar. autine end? Think of the children, women, feeble persons, any set of men, even crimi nal, left to wear out the danger of the cholera in this fashion. Anchor the ehil out as far at sea as possible and let the disease do what it can. If any set of people in any other situation were enduring suct peril as ours, millions of voices would bi raised to rescue without a day's delay. Why are we unworthy of help situated ci we are? Surely not because help is impossi his. Put us on another vessel, land us at some safe point on the shore, and seclude us to any extent. But for God's sake dc not perpetuate this barbarism on us here for a day longer. Try to help us at once. Yours very truly. D, W. Frauan. "P. b.-Why are we on the ship? Be cause the agent of the company in Londot assured almost every passenger who em barked at Southampton that there was oc steerage on this trip. Some of us have hi. written statement that the ship sailed fron Hamburg without steerage." RECEPTION TO HARTMAN. The Repubtlcan ComgresionaI Nemlnes Compilmaestedt by His Neighbors.

More Americans Across the Water Than Ever Before in One Season. They Have Spent Not Lose Than $70,000,000 in Four Months. Inconvenience Experlenced in Gettlag Rack Because of Quarantine aega. latlons to Prevent Cholera. Waernro'row, Sept. 8.-A serious situation has come up in view of the unprecedented number of Americans in Europe, and the disadvantages of quarantine because of the prevalence of cholera at European ports. The number of Americans now in Europe is doubtless greater than has ever been known in the history of steamship companies, and the battalions of pleasure seekers from the new world are constantly augmented with the arrival of steamships from the transatlantic ports. It would be impossible to give the correct figures, but a round estimate of 150,000 will noot be far of the mark. This, of course, includes the permanent American colonies of Paris, London and other European capi tals. The return flight generally gets in full swing about the middle of August. Therefore the American tourist season in Europe may at this moment be considered at high tide. The great hotels of Paris, London. Berlin, Brussels and Vienna are crowded with Amerieans. Every capital, every town and every historisal village in Europe points to its visitors from across the sea. London, of which I can speak with a knowledge born of investigation, says a writer in the New York Herald, Is, meta phorically speaking, ready to buret from overcrowding, due in every sense to the thousands of American ton lets that are landed almost daily at Great Britain's half. dozen ports. It would be difficult to meas ure the inealcula le losses that would have befallen English tradesmen had they not stemmed the tide of misfortune by the timely and happy dam of American trade. Regent street and its great shops swarm with the class of shoppers that one is wont to sea on Twenty-third street or Broadway. 'I he monetary standard is the dollar and the lantuaue that of Uncle Sam. Fieures talk. Let us see how this basis of 150,000 Americansis made up. The great rush began with the opening of the season, about April 1. The arrivals at that time found an advance contingent of. say 75,000, including the "permanents." The season from Aptil 1 to Augnst 1 constitutes seven teen weeks. In this time the stesmehip companies will have brought over in round figures about 00.000 persons, this number being divided as follows: North German Loyd, New York to South hampton and firremen...............,3I0 North (German Lloyd, New York to Genoa. 1.600 Iamhurg.Americeo.

They leave a balance of 15,000 to be ac counted for. These can be drawn from the innumerable small ships, steerages and a hundred and one roundabout ways that cannot be detaile'1. And now rises the question "How much money have these Americans spent?" Leave out the 75,000 resident Americans and those who are in Europe for a year or two. Take the daily expenditure of the 75,000 tourists, those that come here with the letters of credit to be exhausted down to the lasteent. No one who has travelled in Europe will say that $7.50 per day, including hotel expenses, railway fares and purchases of all kinds, is anything but reasonable. At this rate, therefore, 75,000 people have man aged to throw into the lap of. clamoring Europe the tidy sum of $562,500 per day, or $3.037,500 per week. Going still further, in seventeen weeks, from April 1 to August 1, they will have increased this amount to the fabulous sum of $65,037,500. And here lies the reason for the continued shipments of gold from America. Nine-tenths of the people who visit Europe are armed with letters of credit, and it is to meet the de mands made by these credits that the in creased shipments of the metal are due. When the tide of travel goes out the flow of gold will cease. The question of the return trip presents a serious of perplexing situations, It was no difficult matter to come over. There was a long season of weeks ahead of the intsnding visitor, and the delay of a week or ten d~ays made not much differeace. But on the return voynge things are different, Everybody wants to get home at the same time. The favorite dates are those be tween Aug. 15 and Sept. 15-four weeks. Nearly all the steamship offices deuclae that they are almost full~y hooked to the begin fling of the winter, I know of dozens of noses where intsnding pastengers have held iff in ths belief that there would be endless apportunities after Ann. 1 to hook oassajse, who are now giad to take what they can get io as to get away by the end of next month. Line. there are man, berths yet unspoken for the later weeks of the waning season, sut they, too, will soon disappear. FERGQUS DEROCIIATS. Put Ulp 50 Excelleat Tioket-Xtepubllean Central Commiettee.
