Following aro tho detalLs of tho three
Round 1. Corbctt, ut tho call of time,
sprang to tho center of thu ring, with his
man just emerging from his corner. Cor
liett fought with tho samo stylo guard he
employed so bitccessfully in tho combat
with Sullivan. Mitchell's guard was low,
with hit left hand tending downward and
bis right bent iu over his heart. Tito Kng

putting tho hi el of his opened glovo up
against Mitchell's homj.
Mitchell then, after a couple of cflorts,
cot In with his left on tho stomach of thu
American, Corbet t countering with his
right to tho ear and bringing tho color to

lightly with his left, Mitchell making good
with two body blows, ono to tho hhort tins
Audtho other tho chest, both ll;h.
Without lwwiiiK any traces. Mitchell

Mitchell rluverly got away from a left
hand swing. Corls.tt followed In, nnd nt
floHu quarters brought his right iuovir
Mitchell'H heart. The blow was a jiowerful
one nnd had much to do with tho speedy
succus tlmt enmo to tho champion. It
wan at this juncture that Mitchell first
got to thu center of the ting. Tim iti.wil

and hissed nt hltn as ho ran away Ironi
Corbett, some of of tho spectators crying
outnluudnhatutliQ din of the cheers and
hisses, "Chantllly." Corbett kept, up thu
pace, llo was bent ou finishing tho battle
as miuii as possible.
He sent in his left nnd right by turns,
smothering Mitchell and shaking hint up
tu tho point whom most men will 1dm a

and doubling lo tho neck back of Mm ear.
Another instant and iu trying toexndua

inlrably aimed right which crashed Into
tho heart just abovo whero thu former nuo
had found lodgment. Corbett once mom
uppercut his ninn with the right nnd was
handling him now ius ho might a novice.
Mitchell swung his loft short and then tho
native began to mow down hid antagonist.
Ho led with bis left and again timing him

though conscious fooiunii, who was looking
at him through a half-open left eye. Hvc
ondsfrom both eidea bounced Inside the
enclosure and Uio confusion was of the
most exciting kind, lleferco Kelly tried
to forco Corbctt away from his man, but
he was bent on maintaining his position.
From Mitchell's, corner, shouting "Foul"
as he ran, camo bis father-in-law, "1'ony"
Moore, Jim Hall, nnd Tom Allen. The
housowas in an uproar. Dempsey, Do
lauey, and Donaldson rushed to thu sido of
their principal and begged him not to
ha.ard tho chances of a suro victory by
losing on a foul. Kelly stood over Mitch
ell, bis tlmo occupied In nlwut equal parts
In counting tho seconds nud pawing oil
Corbett. Full eight seconds had elapsed
from tho time when Mitchell went to grass
until ho regained bLs feet iu a stooping
pasture, and Corbett still struggling with
bLs seconds to get at him fell over on his
side and bat ou tho boards.
And Mien Corbett camo near losing the
fight ou a foul; woulil havo lost it with a
retereo a "leetlo" inclined to his foo. He
jumped at Mitchell, and swinging his
right struck Mitchell while tho latter was
still in a sitting posture. Tho Mitchell
corner sent up a cry of foul, but thu referee
disallowed it, claiming that it bad done
no harm. Mitchell fell In on Corbett as he
got to his feet to cscupu anotherswiug and
theu "tinopiier" Garrison pounded tho big
gong for time. Corbett heard it and
turned nnd went to his corner. Instead of
going to bis tho Englishman bounded for
Corbett nnd struck him on the head, doing
no barm. "Foul," cried Urady, but Cor
bett shook bis head und Mitchell was car
ried to his corner.
Hound a. Tho beginning of tho end,
inaugurated iu thu previous round, wus
heru brought, to a successful finish. Cor
bett was unscarrtd. Mitchell was slow in
coming up, Corbett going straight for
him. Mitchell led his left In an attempt
to keep Corbett ut' arm's length. It was
tho lust lead Mitchell made, llu then
cliuched, Corbctt brushing thu alleged
strong man oil' as If hu were a boy.
Ho pushed him nway ami swilt asa flash
crossed in thu deadly right clear to thu
jaw. Alltchell went down under thu forco
of tho blow. Corbett tinned ubout atter
delivering thu blow nud nonchalantly
walked to his corner, llu sat do,wn nud
watched thu form of his adversary as Kelly
called oil thu futeful seconds. Mitchell
finally labored to an upright position.
Kelly stepped nsidu so as not to ob
struct thu champion's view, calling his at
tention to thu lact that tho Englishman
was in u lighting attitude. Corbett went
in to finish tho light.
It was a right hand swing which next
wiih brought Into play. Tho added weight
of Corbett's own running weight was lent
totho blow, nnd when it landed It fell
squarely on tho point f -hu jaw. His
body reached tho lloor, faco downward,
and hu laid there as liteless as one death
Kelly bud counted tho ten seconds slowly
enough. When the timo bad finally run
Its limit Kelly shouted, "Corbett wins."
Mitchell's seconds picked hltn up and
carried him to his corner. Niueteeusecouds

later and was also arrested. Hu bad only
ono llttlo mark on his facu and said hu felt
na well us hu ever did, but had been fairly

Crowds cheered both men as they were
driven away to Judgu Call's court, where

under $o,0U0 bonds and remainder of tho

I'irrsiil i:u, Jan. '.ft Tho quiet of Sun
day prevailed throughout tho Mansfield
coal region, thu seenu of tho reeunt rioting.
Hutfuw strikers wero seen out of their
bouses, nnd tho deputy sheriffs on guard
at tho various mines in tho district bad 11
Mu to occupy their attention. Hy many,
how over, the calm was regarded as preced
ing the stoim. There are well grounded
fears of another outbreak today, and tho
law-abiding citizens lire preparing to meet
It. Trusted foreigners who were supposed
to be in sympathy with thu i inters were
sent oiitxby thu coal operators. They cir
culated freely with tho strikers and re
turned with tho information that prepara
tions were being made to attack tho works
ut Dridguvllle, ltosevale, and Hendling.
Thu feeling nmougtlio rioters is very bit
ter against thu lleaitling brothers for the
killing of Frank Stehlt., and they assert
that they will have revenge.
I.ouklnt; for Another Attack.
If another uttack Is inadu on tho Head

still wanner reception than that accorded
Micin at thu first. Thero are twelve men
In thu lkailllng futility, nnd every ono Ls

put to (light a mob of several hundred.
Thomus Hendling snys ho und his two
brothers fired at least 100 shots, and he Is
satisfied that If a search of tho strikers'
houses was iniuln nt least a score of
wounded men would bo found. Frank
Stehltz, who was shot through the body,
Is dead. He was a memlier uf the Sous of

Charged Upon the AnarehUts.
Thero aro strong reasons for liellcvlng
that thu anarchists licrealsiut am respon
sible for tho disonler. It is known that
tho bulk of tho insurgents enmu from
Howcr Hill, and upon tho authority of
Hev. Father Jacob Wertz, pastor of St.
Joseph's German Hoinan Catholic, church
nt Mansfield, Micro are nt least 10) families
on Howcr Hill who openly avow anarch

who fell away from the church when in
Maycncc, Ucrmnny. Ho Is now-publishing
this sheet in Madison, Wis., and it has a
considerable number of subscribers in this
section mid iu thu coku regions.
Wiped Out S'.'OO.OOO In Property.
Whatever may havo been, In thu matter
of iKilitico-ecountninnl propaganda, the
leading idea uf thu men who beaded the
mobs it is ceitnln that anarchy was the
result iu tho Mansfield coal region. The
movement of tho mob began at dawn ami
nt dusk it was estimated that 200,000
worth of properly had been destroyed.
Mndo mad by fancied grievances nnd
liquor a mob of several hundred foreign
ers Hungarians, Slavs and Italians
swept oer tho country surrounding
Mansfield and through tho valleys of
Tom's and Painter's Huns. They nttacked
mino owner-.), miners, and tho few scat
tered deputy sheriffs, wrecked cars and
destroyed railio.nl properly. Until noon
Miu mob met hardly uuy resistance. At
that timo it reached thu mines of thu Head
ling Hios., near Federal, tin thu Pittsburg,
Chartiers and Youghiogucny rellway.

Ico of it Muli.
Hero thciioters met determined resist
ance and wero checked. With repeating
Winchester ritlcs in their hands Thomas
V., William and Harry Hendling stood
their grouud nnd opened fire upon tho
mob us it advanced. They fired four
voile h in quick succession, fatally wound
ing ono and injuring a half dozen others.
After tho fourth olley tho rioters turned
nnd fled precipitately down tho hill. At
this moment a train bearing Sheriff Rich
ards and forty deputies pulled into Head
ling and thu olllcers quickly alighting
stnrted iu pursuit of tho rioters, firing as
they ran. Tho chasu was a long and hot
one, but finally sixteen were overtaken
Previous to this tho mob bad started out
to stop all work iu thu Mauslleld district
and to burn, if necessary in thu uceompllsh
munt of their abject, nil thu coal propeity.
They first went to tho Armstrong mine,
just outside nf Woodvllle. They threw a
volley of stones through tho windows of
tho tipple-house. Attracted by tho shouts
of thu attacking men thu miners Issued
forth from tho pits, when they wero Mt
upon, beaten, ami compelled to lieu for
their lives. Xono of them was seriously
hurt. Theu with Increased numbers they
marched to thu Steen company's mines,
but found thu working forcu there too
largo to bo attacked with certalntyof vic
tory. So they went by, contenting themselves
with volleys of curses on tho men at work.
They next nttacked tho Pittsburg Fuel
company's works nnd drove tho miners
away, many being hurt. Then they threw
cars from Mm tipplu and committed other
similar acts of vandalism, lteachlug tho
HlockCoal company's works at Federal
they drovu tho men from work nud then
weutto the Wicks und Hcachtnont mines,
destroying property all along thu route.
Eu route to tho mines of A. J. Bhutto &
Co tho mob wrecked tho store building of
C. P. Mayer and cupped tho climax of van
dalism a short time later.
When they reached Shutlo's works they
forced their way into tho ofllcu and over
turning thu stovo set. fire to thu building.
Then procuring oil they poured it over tho
tipplu and with brands from thu burning
olllcu soon had tho tipple blazing from a
dcoio of different places. The Pan Hatidlu
company's works suffered next. Here thu
mob aNo fired thu tipplu nfter compelling
the miners to lieu for their lives. Leaving
destruction iu its wake thu mob theu took
up thu march to tho Hendling mines and
hero they met thu surprise of tho day,
given them by thu Hendling brothers as
narrated in tho foregoing. Deputies were
immediately put ou guard nt all the min
