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

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.

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
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

Hneknall Will Remain In Savan
nah the Freaent Seaaon.
Thomas Hucknall, the professional
golfer who was connected with the Sa
vannah Golf Club last season, arrived
yesterday, and will again be with the
Savannah Club.
Last spring and summer Mr. Huck
nall played in Scotland and England.
On returning to America he was con
nected with the Maryland Country
Club at Baltimore. He is in excellent
form, and it is expected he will be
in condition to equal, if not better,
the record- score for the Savannah
links, which he secured lat season. He
then made a round in 36.
The coming of the professional is al
ways hailed with pleasure by the club
members, as it means an opportunity
for instruction. He gives the players
lessons, and they usually profit greatly
by the instruction they receive. The
professional, moreover, is in great de
mand for repairing clubs and furnish
ing new ones. He also has a stock of
golf equipments that is always sought
by the golfers, who rely upon his judg

Big Spring Distilling Cos., Distributors
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
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

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

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
