DAN CREEDON OUT In Marvelously Quick Time. LASTED JUST TWO ROUNDS And He Was a Pie for Lanky Fitz. CORBETT WILL BE THE NEXT. The Australian Wonder in a Position Now to Demand a Finish Fight. New Orleans. Sept. 26.— The clove contest between Robert FitzsinimoDS of Newark, N. J-. and Danny (Jreedon, hail ing from St. Louis, for a purse of SoOOO, took place in the arena of the Olympic Club tu-night. They fought as middle weights at 154 pounds. A feature of im portance of the match was the beating it has on a prospective meeting between Fitz=itr.mcns and Corbett. Fiz*immons has leen most persevering in his efforts to secure a match with the champion heavy weight and from time to time has been nut off with the reminder that he was not in his class. Corbett first named Choynski as the man lanky Bob had to whip before he could take off a match. Fitzsimmons took on t c mate. 1 ), and then he was told by the cliampiou that he would have to go with Creedon to place himself In a posi tion to talk fight Comparatively iittlewas known of Cree don by toe general public, although the visitors from irt. Louis were enthusiastic in their praise of the man. Despite that fact, however, Fitzsimmons remained a prohibitive favente throughout, his odds being quoted from 3 to 10 to 1 to 8, while as good as 5 to 2 could be had against Crnedon. When the men entered the ring for the great contest Fitzsimmous looked indeed formidable. lie was finely or two, and but for traces ot prickly heat his !*kin was r.s white as a baby's. His enormous s-houlders and dies', when compared with his narrow waist and hips, was pariicu larlv maiked. ll is long, lithe anas and limts were covered with sinuous muscles that gave bvery indication of tertible force and sDeeO. His every movement in the ring was like that of a panther watching his prey and ready t » spring upon it. Creedon as he appeared presented a much stockier look, and all t c lines of his symmetrical body indicated strength aud exce.lrftit condition. Fi'z*immons had something the better in height and reach, but as he stood with his legs further apart than Creedon it was tot so marked as it might have beeu. There were probably 5000 spectators present. Creedou was the first to enter the ring and was closely followed by Fitz- | Simmons. Creedon weighed 158 uouuas j aud Fi'zsimnion* l">s|-2 pounds. The sec- ! <inds were: F< r Creedon — Thomas Tr<* cey, Mickey Dunu, Tommy White and Charles Daily; fur Fitzsiminons— Jack j Dempsey, James Dwyer, Kid McCoy and j . Sam li. Stern. After the usual instruc tions tbe men advanced to the center of v. ■•■ rinu, and the fight was on. Round I—The1 — The men felt each other for an opening. Fitzsimmona led. He was abort, hut he forced the fighting and landed a hard right on the head and Creadon scored j a hard body blow. A moment later Cree don caught a left on the chin, and one, t*o, three on the head. The tneu had to | be separated by the referee. Creedon ducked beautifully from a right on the head. Round 2— Creedon missed a light left swing for the head, but be landed two rishts on the body. Fitzsimmous scored two heavy rights and knocked Creedon | down with a heavy right-hander on the jaw. FrzMmmons landed a heavy right on the jaw and the men had to be foiced from a clinch. Creedon received two neavy lights on the jaw and three rights on the body. Creedon was then knocked out by a heavy left on the jiw. There was the wildest demonstration ever seen? in the ring. Referee Duffy awarded thH fight to Fitzslminous, who was 1 u'Uv cbeereJ. Referee DufFy announced Fi ! Zsininions' challenge to Champion Cor ' bett, and the applause that followed was immense. The work of Fitziimiuons in the second round was the must maiveious ever seen in this section of the country. The three right-handers which Creedon received on the head in one, two, thr^e order arupzed the spectators aud Uaz*d the rec pient, but they were not from an ar ti - : i : i ug 1 stic point of view t > be comp ared with the three heavy lefU delivered in the one, two, ihree order on Creedon's nose, which floored the latest aspirant for middle-weight honors and caused Creedon to fall the easiest prey of all Fizsimmons' adversaries. Tbe main fighting was done in the cci t^r of the ring. The actual fignt ing time was four minutes and forty sec onds. Creedon was carried to his corner, gasping hard for breath. He was compar atively unhurt during the first round, and was taken to his corner smiling and chat ting with his attendants. Tbe inference is that he whs beaten in one minute and forty seconds, the time of the second round. Us seconds aud backers were startled beyond measure and those who wished for Fitzsimmons' defeat were over awed with wonder at tbe tall man's skill. After the fisiht was over there were knots of men la different parts vf the mammctli arena trying to ex lain to each other or have it explained to them. President VV. A. Schell nf the Olympic Club, a few hours af:er Fhzsitnmons de fea ed Creedon, sent the following tele gram to Champion CorbPtt: Fitzsimrcoos nas signed articles of agree ment to meet you Id February for the woi Id's chamiilouship, for a purse of $25,000 aud a $10,000 side bet- ONE MORE TO MEET. Corbett Says Fitz Must Now Whip Steve O'Donnell. Xf.w York, Sept. 27.— The World this ruoruiug publishes tlie following telegram from Corbett, dated liangor, Me.: "I will say oothing about Fitzsimmons at present. He must meet Steve O'Donuell first before I will notice htm." Louisville, Ky., Sept 26.— Jim Hall, the pugilist, to- eight issued a challenge to figlit any man in the world, Corbett barred. Hall expressed a prefereuce for Fitz<!m uaons. THE CUSTOMS UNION. One Cannot Be t-ormed Without In cluding: the United States. London, Sept. 26.— The Times, com menting on the Stntist's offer nf % prize of 10C0 guineas for the best scheme for an im perial customs union, con<idTi it impos sible that such a union fthocld exclude the United Statt». "We are customers of the United States of America for < xactly half their domestic i roduee," the Statist save, "and it may be assumed that ihe United States will not lose such a customer with out b> iog willing to maue concessions in the direction uf a mutually advantageous union. The gradual shifting of theceuter of ihe coal and iron i dustrv from Great Britaiu to the United States, believed by some economists to be occurring, is another serious reason in favor of commercial union. The condi inns are such that the United States and England must either compete for or vi.i c to possess th« com mand of tne world's c ninvrce. United, we might safely defy competition from any source. Toe people of the colonies would also have au insuperable objection to Join ing any union which excluded the United Stnt-'e. For these a d iiiiiny other reasons we ;ire driven to conclude that colonial ud mperial interest! would be bettpr served by keeping questions of political and com mercial union entirely distinct. If a customs union should be formed on any other basis than that of free trade.except for revenue purposes, it hardly appears to ad mit of question that such a union would have to be formed to include the United States." VISITED THE ADAMS. But the Naval Court of Inquiry Found No Evidence To Show That the Accident to the Cruiser Was Due to Neg ligence. Vallejo, Sept. 26. — The naval court of inquiry to examine into the circumstances regarding the grounding of the United States ship Adams on St. Paul Island' was continued at the navy-yard to-day. After the board, of which Captaia C. S. Cotton is president, had organiz-d in accor dance with navy regulations they visited t'u' Adams lying in the streau, and nil th» officers and crew were given an opportu ni y of en'ering any complaints they might have regarding the handling of the ship by tnp oflietrs in charge at the lime. After careful inquiry among the officers and men by members of the boanl not the least particle of dissatisfacton could be i found in any frrm. All were perfectly satisfied and free to | exuress that in tieir opinion nothing could | have saved the ship Ironi striking on tbe reef, as the fog was so dense tuat witii the ti t ii- os: caution and lookouts ahead tiutii- I ing coul 1 be distinguished half a length from the ship. A stroug current was running at the time of strikine, which added to the unknown danger. As soon as the board had c mpieted the investigation they returned to the navy yard. Only two wituesses were ex .mined. Commander J. J. Brice, commanding of ficer, who was on board sick with fever, stated that on the morning of the ground ing, August 2. he had gone on board from St. George Ibland, where he had been ou shore for treatment. The shis« was cot under way ttbout l o'clock in tie after noon ami started for St. Paul I-land, forty in 1-s distant. Charts and reckon ings were all correct, but a heavy fog set ting in nothing could be seen, though every precaution was taken to avoid dan- ; ger or disaster. The other witness called was Assistant Surgeon Frederick J. B. Cord^iro, with tbe records of the medical department, showing that Commanding Officer Brice was on the eck Use. The boarl adj turned fit 3:30 until 10 o'clock Wednesday moruing, at which ti ne Lieutenant Charles F. Norton, in command at the time of t'.e grounding, which oc curred at 5:20 p. m., and Lieutenant Wil liam P. Elliott wiil be called. Charts and reckonings wisl be produced, also bailing directions to show the treachetou9 char acter of the currents and reef-. Inquiry wi 1 be most exhaustive in c aracter himl when completed will b« sent direct to the Secretary of the Navy for consideration. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. The Town of Lincoln Is Almost Wiped Out. Lincoln, Sert. 26.— Last nizht about one hour ot midnight tbfo town was vis ited by a seri v* conflagration. Nearly a whol« block in the business portion of the town was burned. The losses are: A.

Neville from an unknown cause aDd raged furiously for nearly two hours. Several people narrowly escaped beian burned. A man named Jasper Dac jjett, who was sleeping in the stable, was seriously burned about the head and feet. The railroad company dispatched a lire train from Kocklio to aid in quelling the Haiues, but the train arrived too late to be of great assistance. It was only through the efforts of Gladding, Mcßean & Co., with their excellent equipment of fiie protection, that another block was not added to the list. They stretched nsaily one thousand feet of ho<e 1 1 the large bay warehouse, which repeatedly caught on tire. This saved another block of valua ble property. Several cars of lumber and otiier material were 6aved by the willing hands of the people, who pushed them to places of safety. To Oppose Owens. Lexington.

Philadelphia, Sept. 26— The Frank lin, Kmghi and Spreckels refineries in this county, operated by the sugar trust, will shut down next Saturday. Iv addition to these tbe McMahon refinery, which is nut controlled by the trus*, will also shut down. The shutting down of the refineries will throw Nome 3600 men out of work. There is said to be a lack of raw sugar, as tbe present crop is about exhausted aud the n«w crop does not come iv before tbe first of tbe year. This condition of affairs is caused by the enormous production during the months of June, July and August. It is the opinion of the sugar men that tbe shutting down of the refineries will not tend to advance prices. ARE ALL RIGHT. The Missing Newspaper Men Were Seen Last Month.

LAND CASHS DECIDED. The Peralta Grant in New Mexico Has Been Rejected. Santa Fe, X. Mex., Sept. 26.— 1n the Untied Stat-<» Liand Court a rehearing of the case of William Pinkerton against the United States concerning the Gervacio M la i grant of 575,000 acres in Mora County was refused. The print was re leased some time ago and the claimant applied for a new trial. The (iovernnifent also gained a victory in tbe Canyon de Chanm grant. In this case th« clalman', the Rio Arriba Land and Cfctlle Company, applied for a confir mation of over 472,000 acres included within the boundaries of this grant. The court con tinned the title toon!v3000 acres, being nil thtt part situated in the Cbama River Canyon, which had been parceled out and allotted la severally to the settlers. All over and above the actual allotments were rejected. This sustains tbe position ttken by Unit-Hi States Attorney 11-vno!ds that the surplus lands in community grants nevr passed to the grantee;, but remaiued vested in :he Government. The court eutered an order dismissing the Peralta grant claim, which was he^rl yesterday. This was the greatest ot the Cochin casea, being a claim for 400,000 acres, Deluding Canada de Cocbiti anil other grants. The action greatly simp'ifies the Cochii ront r oversv. The court announced to-day that It would decide the original Cochiti caso by Saturday or Monday. Can Build a Line.

Following is the platform adopted: Tlie Democratic party of trie State of Washington, in convention assembled, make this declara tion or principles and pledges Its candidates thereto. Firs' — Resolved, That the Democratic party reaffirms us unswerving allegiance and devo tion to Ihe principle" declared and adopted by tlie Democratic party in national couv. ntiou assembled In Cnica2o in 18t»2. We Heartily approve and indorse the admin istration of over Cleveland, and declare again our continence in his judgment ami patriotism, and we congratulate tne Democratic party and the people of the United State* on the fact that, irolwlibxlandiug Hi. position of the llepub lic.iii party, the protected trusts and other com bination, a substantial measure of laiill re form lias been accomplished, and we point with pride to the fact that President Cleveland has demonstrated hi? ability to safely guide the republic through the difficulties created by and Inherited from the Republic n party. Therefore, we resolve thai wo earnestly and cordially indorse the efforts of the preseut Democratic administration to refoiin the Kepubllcau taiifl system as endorsed In the late McKlnley bill, ana we heart ily commend the bill recently passed by Con cress as an intelligent and catrlo ie step In the direction of an euiigtuened international policy, and winch is approved by the highest states manship of tie woild; a policy which shall throw open Hie seaports of the United S ate-*, and particularly those seaports of our own Mate.io those law staple products such as wool, flax, hemp, jute and other such staples which experience has proven must ever be me basis of a sound manufacturing system; that by importation into our own potts of these sta ples we shall at one and th same time encour age the building up of a State and local manu facturing .system which snail free our people from tlie exactions of manufacturing trusts 3000 miles distant, at the same time by encour aging the importation of sucb s aples stimulate a system or international exchange, and thus directly foster and encourage the export of our manufactured products; these products in which we excel the nations of the earth. \Y* cordially indorse the earnest and pa tiiotic efforts of the last Democratic Congress to lelleve the Ameiirau people from the cor rupt nd demoralizing influences ot gigantic trusts which are conceded to be the necessary outgrowth of thirty years of class privileges given to organized capital l>y tbe Republican party and renounce me disloyalty of those so- called Democratic Senators who have made their reform pledges less full iLan the policy of the Democratic pany requrled. Aud we also most heat tily approve ot the policy of the Democratic party which seeks by a reason able Income tax lo compel the gigantic fortunes accuniulaied by the beneficial les of Repub lican class lei:l>la;ion to contribute and pay their fair share ot the tax burdens of tbe Gov ernment, mid thus in some measure lighten the imnosi ions which the tax policy of the Repub lican party for thirty years has loaded upou tl;e dully consumptiou of thefeoide. W <■ c .11 the attention <,f the voters of this State to the Lypociincal and vaccillatlne ac tion of the Republican State convention, wherein it first declared against the use of sll vei as money and then at the dictation of iis oftiec-s ekers and nominees for Congress re luctuutly gave sliver au equivocal indorsement, and we point to :his as a conspicuous example of X publican duplicity; and we demand the full aud unlimited coinage of both silver and gold in the i tlo of 1G to "I, and demand tbe Passage or such laws as will make silver re ceiv;ibl for all debts, public and private, and eQMI >n puirhasing power with gold. Whkukas, The Democratic party has al ways been the f i lend of the toiling masses of theieopie: -.lie friend of the laboi lug classes; the piotec;ors of the rights of property and capital ami zealous in tne due enforcement of the law, with equal rights to all, and Is lv h- arty sympathy with the efforts of laboring men to secure full and fair compensation for their loll; and whereas, tbe Democratic party is composed of laboring men who, by inge uious machlneiy, pateuied and made by them, have reduced labor to a science, they are entitled to at least a portion of tne benefits thereby con ferred; and we favor the establishment of a Stale board of arbitration, by which there may be secured a peaceful settlement of all disputes betweeu employes and employers. We are la favor of the passage by tbe Legis lature of a law providing that upon tbe entry of a judgment of foreclosure of a mortgage on real estate, an execution or order of sale shall not be issued until two years subsequent to the entry of such Judgment; and that sale shall then be made with no per cent or redemption, and we favor the amendment to our present law relative to tbe foreclosure of mortgages on real estate In such a manner as to preclude the rlcht of the mortgage to a deficiency Judgment alter applying the proceeds of tbe sale of mort gaged land to the payment of the mortgage in debtedness and costs, and that th ■ mot t gage be limited In the satisfaction ot tils mortgage debt to the mortgaged lands. . We denounce the Reilly refunding bill a* un patriotic, and demand that our Representatives in Cougress shall use every effort to further the foreclosure of (lie Government mortgage on the Union and Central Pacific railroads, and that one transcontinental road shall b- owned, controlled and operated by the Government and for the benefit of the people. Whereas, the question of what is known as the Indemnity lien lands and of unearned hinds of the Noitn em Pacific Railroad Company has been pend ing for tbe last fifteen or twenty years,' and the question is still unsettled, therefore be It jiesolied. That we demand a speedy settle ment of said question and pledge our repre sentatives in Congress If elected to that end. We favor the assessment of real estate once In two years for purposes of tax tion. We denounce ih Republican administration of the State as extravagant,. Incompetent and factional. We favor Government aid and control of and demand tue speedy construction of the Nica ragua canal.

Ordering Vast Quantities of the Product for the Use of tier Armies. Washington*, Sept. 26.— The Depart ment of Agriculture has very encouraeing accounts of the growth of consumption and increased lavor of American wines alruad. A catalogue received from a prominent wine-dealer in London gives a list of places iv England where California wines are sold. The list includes some of the leading hotels and dubs in London. A member of this firm was sent to the World's Fair by tlitf British Governnieut to report on American wines. Bis report has noi yet been made. The firm's trade mark is a big trre, and a receat printing order for lithographic work designed to advertise these wares cost 512.000. This gentleman when in this country called upon G. W. Bill, chief of t tie division of records and editing at the Department ol Agriculture, and ex pressed his amazement that it was diffi cult to get American wines at lending: hotels in this country, and t:iat American hotel-keepers and wine-dealers were in clined to discredit these native products. The Englishman also expressed the con viction that the dependency of the world in ihe future tut brandygrapes would have to bo on this country. During the year the German military authorities have contracted for tne mili tary supply of brandy with California companies. The order is lor nearly 200,000 gallons. California wines are also begin niui to attract attention in Denmark, Hol land and Belgium. One difficulty in introducing American wines into Europe is tbat their wine dealers are accustomed to a year's credit, while American dealers are loth to grant more than sixty days. American makers have not yet learned the secret of cams for their product while it is aging. As a result the toreign dealers buy now and bold it while it is aging, which requires that capital be kept locked up a loug time. While the cruiser Chicago was in Eng land the azent of the Agricultural Depart. meut sent a case of California nines to Admiral Erben. At one of the many dinners given to English officers of high station on board tbe Chicago these wines were upon the table and elicited many encomiums from the euests. TRAIN BROKE IN TWO.
