UP WENT THE SPONGE FROM YOUNG CORBETT’S CORNER IN THE TE\TH HOIM) \EUOX WON TIIE FIGHT. CHICAGO LAD HAD HIM ALMOST AT HIS MERCY. AN EASY THING HE WAS VP AGAINST AT SAN FRANCISCO. Without a Mark of the Fray Nelson Lett the King After Corbett's Sec onds Had Thrown Tp the Sponge. Corbett, However, Was Badly Pnn ished—Tlie frond Hail Shouted That the Flslit He Stopped—Oflds Were on Corbett In the Betting. The Story of the Fight. San Francisco, Nov. 29. —Woodward's pavilion was jammed to tha danger point to-night with fight enthusiasts who fought their way into the audi torium to witness the battle between "Young Corbett” and ‘‘Battling” Nel son. The taint of suspicion which has characterized some of the contests in this city has been entirely absent in connection with to-night’s battle. Notwithstanding the one-sidedness of the odds, the speculation on the result was the heaviest of any contest since the Britt-Corbett battle last summer. While technically no cham pionship title went with the winning end of to-night’s fight, the fact that the victor will meet Jimmy Britt in this city next month for the world's featherweight championship proved an incentive which greatly stimulated the efforts of the principals and impelled them to train to the limit. Wheu the lads weighed in at 6 o'clock this evening Corbett’s weight was at the figure previously agreed upon, namely 130 pounds. Nelson failed to raise the beam at the 130 notch as he stepped on the scales. When the two belligerents stepped Into the ring to-night, Corbett ruled a warm favorite at odds or 2 to 1. La ter in the evening the betting, owing to the weight of Nelson money, switched to the odds of 10 to 7. It is estimated that the receipts to night will approximate 115,000. "Cyclone" Kelly knocked out George Adams in the second round of the first preliminary. Nick Cordel of San Francisco was awarded the decision over Eddie San dry of Chicago at the end of ten rounds. The decision was very unpop ular with the spectators. The Story by Honml*. Round One —They sparred for some time, apparently so sizing each other ■up. Finally they went to close quar ter? withouc damage The bell found them in a fruitless mix up. No blows of consequence were landed in this round. Corbett was very cool, while Nelson was a trifle anxious. Round Two—Corbett rushed to a clinch and in some vicious in-flghting Nelson placed some good lefts on Cor bett's body and a right to the jaw. Corbett hooked his right to the jaw and Nelson retaliated in kind with right to the face. Corbett then chang ed his tactics and tried straight lefts for the jaw. Out of five attempts two were successful. The honors were prac tically even. Pound Three—Nelson rushed Corbett to the ropes, landing left and right on the ex-champion. As they squared off Nelson sent straight right to the Jaw and followed it with a left swing to the face, making Corbett wince. Cor bett suddenly sent two terrific rights’ to Nelsons jaw', and they mixed it fiercely. Corbett swung a fearful right to the face as the gong rang. The pace in this round was fast. >lnle (irKKy> Round Four—Nelson forced Corbett against the ropes and then around the ring, landing almost at will on Cor bett's head and face. Corbett stalled and then put in some heavy ln-fight ing. Corbett straightened Nelson out with straight right to the jaw. Corbett followed it with right and left swings as the bell rang, which made Nelson groggy. He was a bit unsteady as he went to his corner. Round Five—Nelson forced Corbett against the ropes, but the latter up percut right to the jaw that sent Nel son back. In the center of the ring Nelson sent straight left to the face and as the bell sounded repeated the dose. Corbett’s nose was bleeding slightly as he took his seat. Round Six—Nelson brought the blood from Corbett's nose and mouth, landing several terrific right and left short arm blows. Corbett fought back wildly. Nelson kept after Corbett, landing almost at will. The gong sounded with Nelson landing straight lefts and right to the ex-champion’s face, bringing blood from Corbett’s nose. Round Seven—Nelson resumed his shoving tactics, and at close quarters staggered Corbett with three rights to the Jaw. Corbett fought back hard, but was met with a light swing to the Jaw and a left straight to the face. Nelson kept up the bom bardment. finally nearly flooring Cor bett with a wicked right swing to the Jaw’. Nelson had Corbett groggy, forcing him against the ropes with blood streaming from his mouth and nose and presenting a sorry spectacle. Corbett In Deep Distress. Round Eight—They went to close quarters at the very outset. Nelson missed several lefts for the face. Nel son then sent right to the face and Corbett stalled desperately. Corbett's face soon broke out bleeding afresh. Corbett droved a wicked right to Nel son's face, but the latter handed out a crushing right that caught Corbett on the jaw. The fighting hpre was most desperate. Just before the gong sounded Corbett landed a fearful right swing to Nelson's Jaw, but there was not perceptible effect on the ’ Battling Demon." Round Nlns—Corbett complained to the referee that Nelson was butting htm with his head, but no attention ■was paid to the claim. In the mix Nel son drove his left to the face and a hard right to the body. Corbett miss ed two fearful left swings to the jaw. Corbett swung a fierce left to the Jaw, but It had rio effect on the f*hU ago man. who forced Corbedt about the ring, landing fearful rights and left Jolts st will, The gong saved Corbetl from almost certain defeat. Round Ten -Nelson went right after Corbett. Corbett hung to Nelson dee- P*rai*ly, fighting bar k like a wild man. Itle swings wre wild, however, Nel son again rushed riorbett to the ropes, landing at will with right and left on the face <' or tret t was groggy and the crowd yelled to "atop It," "atop It.” Nelson went after Corbett, who could •carnety raise tits hand, Corbett’s sac. node Seeing Ihe lielpleae and hopeless toodMloa of !he|* charge, threw up the t-Ar* MiU WMi t git t itd Ijlh Wf fitff PROFESSIONAL BACK WITH GOLF CLUB. Hneknall Will Remain In Savan nah the Freaent Seaaon.

T Cascade IS PURE Because every unwholesome product of grain fermentation is removed by our method of puri fication and it is mellowed by age, not blending. GEORGE A. DICKEL & CO. Distillers NASHVILLE, TENN. Big Spring Distilling Cos., Distributors PROGRESS OF THE EMPLOYERS’ MOVEMENT. DbenHied by President Furry of Citizens Industrial Association. New York. Nov. 29.—D. M. Parry, in his annual address as president of the Citizens’ Industrial Association, to day reviewed the progress of the em ployers’ movement during the last two years, and predicted for it a steady permanent growth. He said In part: "If tradeunlonism should become dominant in this country I have not the least doubt that our industries would languish and our streets would be filled with idle men. No other re sults could possibly come from a sys tem that would base the reward of labor not on merit, but on the power of organization to dictate terms, a system that would restrict output, dis courage enterprise and permit the in dolent and least efficient to set the pace for industry. Can present-day union ism become dominant in this country? It Is my belief that if you would like to see organized labor obtain a con trolling power over industrial and pub lic affairs all that you need to do is to fold your hands and let the unions work their will. Under the do-nothing policy of the employers, up until a few years ago, the growth of unionism was magical. Finally, with several mil lions of workers back of them and flushed with victory because of suc cess in a number of strikes, the lead ers assumed a dictatorial attitude to wards Congress and local authorities. At that time it seemed as though pub lic opinion was ready to sanction any demands that the strike bosses chose to make, and but scant hearing was given to the employers' side of any controversy, no matter how diplomat ically expressed. A Critical Time. ‘‘l believe that this was a critical time in the history of our country and had the employers not abandoned the let-alone policy we should to-day be facing a very different condition of affairs from that now confronting us. We should, perhaps, have the eight-hour and anti-injunction bills on the statute books and the principle of preference to unionists in employment, or, in other words, the national closed shop would more than likely be in a fair way of adoption. But. fortun ately, for the welfare of every man, woman and child in this country, there sprang up a movement, which was practically spontaneous among the em ployers, for the formation of local as sociations, while such great national organizations as the National Asso ciation of Manufacturers began to grapple with the problem with energy and determination. What happened? There is little need for me to rehearse the story. Strike after strike was or dered only to be lost by the unions, and a great check was given to trades union aggression from Maine to Cal ifornia. Shop after shop has been opened to the non-union man, and pro tection has been given him ;igainst the sluggers in most of our industrial centers. Muny Closed Shops Abandoned. "I believe thqt 1,000 manufacturing establishments have, in the last year, abandoned the closed shop and thrown their doors open to workmen without regard to their membership or non membership in a union. I have been informed of the names of over 250 con cerns in the city of Chicago that have done this. Is not that a record for the greatest hot-bed of unionism in the country? From all parts of the Cen tral West I have received Information of hundreds of other factories being opened to independent workmen. Many concerns in the East have also gone to the open shop, although I must say that the employers' movement is stronger in the Central West than it is here in the East, and that the re sults show it. "The effect of the open shop move ment has been particularly beneficial. In some factories the output per man has been Increased from 25 to 50 per cent. Who can assert that this in crease In output will not benefit the toller as well as the employer? The theory that the less each man does the better every one will be is one of the absurd doctrines of the union creed and if followed to Its logical conclusion would produce a state of society in a hloh no one worked and every one went hungry and naked. If Increasing the output per man worked Injury to the workers then all machinery should be destroyed, for the effect of machin ery Is to multiply Individual output.” Not a Controversy. Mr. Parry declared that the labor question Is not merely a controversy between employers and employes, but rather a question whether Individual liberty Is to be maintained. He quoted from labor authorities to show that the unions denied that there was any such thing us the inalienable right to work. Mr. Parry declared that the courts have with practical unanimity held that the dosed shop cannot bo main tained by means of contracts between employers and unions for the reason that such eontraets are illegal nnd void In that they tend to produce a monop oly and are unconstitutional and against public policy. "The question," he said, “then arises whether the closed shop can la* maintained in tin absence of contracts by the method of the unions refusing to work with non-union men. Granting for argument's sake that they may be uhle to do this, I want to say here now that where an organ ization quits work to compel the dis charge of men simply on the grounds that these men are not members of the organization, Iheti those composing the organization are guilty of an act of persecution, which ran not tm justi fied on inoral grounds, no matter how much they may Is acting within their legal lights. The men of an organi sation that commit such an act should fully understand that they are at lik ing a blow at IndDlduai freedom, the most pie< ions heritage of the • oinmon people, and are thneby Inviting their The eurlallsl Isis. Ot the gkaialiel vote, Mr. I’erry seld FOOTBALL PRACTICE WILL BE RESUMED AT ARMORY TO-NIGHT Black and Rossiter Will Join the Blue and White Forces. Capt. Cope has notified all members of the football squad to be out for practice to-night and the hard work that will have to be done between now and Christmas will be taken up. Joe Rossiter and Joe Black will be out to commence some real football after their season with the Georgia squad. Left guard Highams has not yet left Savannah., but expects to do so in the next few days. This will be a serious loss to the team, as Hig hams is the best man who has ever played on the line here. Only twice did the Jacksonville team send their assault against him, and each time they lost ground. MANY SAVANNAHIANS WILL GO TO JACKSONVILLE SATURDAY Great Interest Manifested in Game Between Jays and Charleston. A party ot a dozen or more Savan nah football enthusiasts will go down to Jacksonville Saturday morning to witness the game Saturday afternoon between Jacksonville and Charleston. Jacksonville will present a strong line up to the Gulls, and with the heavy and fast backfield bets are even on the game. Unless Charleston can show unusual superiority in the line Jacksonville looks like a winner, the Jay backfield, with the exception of Ferris, is the heaviest and fastest ever seen in Savannah. Ferris did not play his usual game here Thanksgiving, being eclipsed by the Yancys, who are a team in them selves. Great as individual players these brothers are almost invincible, playing as they do, together and mak ing double passes on nearly every play where the runner is tackled. Ferris will compare favorably with Sumter and Hogan Yancy will more than offset Guy Gunter. The decision between Worth Yancy and Jocko Haney will in the majority of in stances be in favor of the Kentuck ian. Both men have played against the “It may be considered unfortunate by some that the result of compelling the unions ‘ bide by the laws is to drive a portic of their membership into the Socialist party, but certainly it is no argument to say that the unions should be permitted to follow their own sweet will in order that their members may not become Socialists. The growth of the Socialist party simply adds ad ditional force to the necessity that con fronts the employers to take an active hand in shaping public sentiment, to the end that our great individualistic form of government may be maintain ed. The greatest industrial structure the world has ever seen has grown up in free America. Shall it be de stroyed or even checked in its devel opment? It surely will be if the Social ists and labor agitators obtain any power in the management of industry or the shaping of the policies of the government.” LOWNDES SUPERIOR COURT CASES. One Conspiracy, One Murder Case and Several for Minor Offenses. Valdosta, Ga„ Nov. 29.—The crim inal docket of the Superior Court Is open now, and a number of important cases are to be tried. The case against Ben. Penny. Reuben and Will Knight, all jointly indicted for a conspiracy to kill Mannis Carter at Naylor, in September, was postponed until to day on account of the absence of a witness. To-day it was stated that a child of the witness had died last night, and that he could not come, so the case was postponed again until Thursday. The case against iMary Harvey, charged with murdering her husband by giving him potash while he was sick, was called, but her attorneys en tered a plea of lunacy, and were given until Wednesday to produce their evi dence. John Dummy, the deaf and dumb cow thief, was found guilty, but the jury recommended 'that he be punish ed as for a misdemeanor. John Harper, charged with assault with intent to murder, was found guilty, but the jury recommended that he be punished as for a misdemeanor. He was fined SIOO. Charles Davis, who was caught steal ing several bags full of cotton from Mr. Math Clarke, near Lake Park, was also convicted, but sentence has not been Imposed. WANT ONLY FIRE MILK.

Wel ker ami J, U, Wilkinson. No team in the South has suffered as much ill luck as has the Savan nah team this year, but the supporters have remained loyal throughout. So far It has not been necessary to im port men to strengthen the team, but now that it seems the proud record is in danger of being broken all loyal supporters are beginning to change in their sentiment favoring an all home team. Other cities are scouring the country for material and if Savannah can add a few men to strengthen the weak places it will be nothing but right, it is contended. With a back field made up of Har mon, Cope and the two Yancy boys there is little doubt as to the termina tion of the New Year's game. Savannah team and the unanimity of opinion here is that Yancy is the better ground gainer and far supe rior on the defensive. The Jacksonville line will be rein forced by Kirby Smith and Council of Virginia, with the possibility that Bridges of Cumberland will be one of the guards. In this event the only weak place on the team will be at right end. Dodg’e is above the ordinary at left end. At quarterback Tutwiler is Kennedy’s superior. With his weight and agility much better things were expected of Kennedy in the game here. He seem ed to be averse to plunging into the plays, as a quarter of his weight should do, and on his quarterback runs failed to gain every time an at tempt was made. With but one man between him and the goal when he re ceived the kick off in the last half Kennedy ran out of bounds and stopped, or was stopping when tackled. He may show up considerably more vicious against Charleston. Charleston has not yet announced its line up, and it is not known whether Bennet and Saddler will be in the game. The weights of the two elev ens will be slightly in Jacksonville's favor. CITY BREVITIES. A building permit was yesterday is sued to Mrs. M.
