Tea Thousand See Mill.
Ten thousand persons were seated aboJt
he arena, representing sn expenditure for
seating accommodations aggregating $54,
000. This Is the largest crowd that ever
assembled at a ringside In this country
'and the third largest sum tn dollars and
! cents ever contested for. The two that ex-
eended It In receipts were ' the Corbett
: Jeffries fight at Coney Island, $06,000, and
the Corbett-McCoy fight at Madison Square
! Garden, New York, $GJ,000.
The scene about the big pavilion from 6
p. m. until the men stepped Into the ring
.was one of confusion. The gallery ticket
'holder formed In line on Paclflo, Larkln
and Grove streets In three long rows, and,
although there was much crowding and
, many scrimmages In the effort to gain
r admittance, 100 policemen kept perfect or
;der until the doors opened. The pavilion
ticket holders were more leisurely In claim
ing their seats. Not until 9 were the chairs,
, boxes and benches full.
About the ring were many who have at
tended every pugilistic encounter during
the last deoade. Among these were Parson
' Davles, George Bller, ' Harry Houghton,
,W. W. Naughton and Harry Thaw.
', ' On the south side of the arena more than
' 600 Jeffries admirers from Los Angeles sat
In a group. Official San Francisco was also
largely represented. Bench and bar, com
. ell and supervisors, In fact, every branch
of the executive administration were at
. ' There was less trouble in handling the
, big crowd than has been experienced on
; similar occasions. At 9 Police Captain
.Mooney entered the ring and told Billy
Jordan to announce that the contest would
not start till all ticket holders were seated.
'His announcement was greeted with cheers
and the few still standing found their
places and were quickly seated.
Preliminaries Both Draws.
The preliminaries, the first a six-round
draw between Frank Smith of Los Angeles
'and Jack Sheridan of San Rafael, and an
other of like length between Jack Evans
.and Jerry Fairbanks, kept the crowd In
teres ted till 9:16, the time set for the chain
, . The ring looked large compared with the
enclosures used heretofore in this city. In
pursuance to an understanding between the
men It was made the regulation twenty-four
foot ring. Heretofore twenty-foot rings
have been the rule.
; At 1 o'clock the betting at Harry Cor
: belt's resort was 2 to 1, with much Corbett
money in sight. There was no big betting
on the result, but some good Wagers were
placed. The most popular bet was even
money that Corbett would stay twelve
Crowd Grows Restless.
When the first preliminary waa ended all
eyes turned toward the entrance to the
dressing rooms of the principals. The
'crowd became restless and amused Itself
with calls for the two men, for the referee
and other ring celebrities.
! . At 1:16 the crowd rose enmasse as Cham
plon Jeffries walked down the long aisle
and vaulted through the ropes. He was
greeted with great cheers, which, however,
seemed Insignificant half a miuute later
when Jim Corbett followed him.

He wore no bandages. Corbett had on a

no bandages on his hands. Corbett walked
across to Jeffries and shook him cordially

patent leather shoes, dark trousers and a

great ovation. Jeffries was equally well
received a moment later when he was In

Corbett then proceeded to have his hands

remarked that Jeffries did not follow suit.
Jeffries walked over and examined Cor

naturedly over the material used, Corbett

the northeast corner. As they were donning
the gloves they presented a striking con

LOCAL INTERESJ IN FIGHT
Newspaper Telephones ICept Busy and
Crowds Collect at Iportlng
The newspaper offices were early aware
of the fact that there were a large number
of people In Omaha who took an interest
In the big fight. Early In the evening the
telephone bell commenced ringing and
news from the fight was eagerly Inquired
for. That the Interest was more than pass
ing was evidenced by the fact that, though
the fight did not start until near midnight,
Omaha time, the calls became more nu
merous as the evening progressed and a
the time drew near It kept one man busy
answering the calls. Some evidently awoke
from their slumbers and suddenly remem
bered they had not heard from the con
test and immediately rushed to the tele
phone. These calls continued until the late
hours and some of the early risers were
also too anxious to wait for the delivery
of the morning papers.
A great deal of Interest was manifested
by the local lovers of the game and wher
ever the returns were received there a
large crowd was congregated to hear the
latest news. While almost everyone
seemed to think Jeffries was sure to win.

the fight that Corbett had slightly the bet

up for the former champion. Sympathy of
the crowds generally seemed to be with
him. There were many arguments engaged
In as the fight progressed and one at least
wound up by the participants assuming
the position of the heavyweights which
the argument was about. They were
promptly separated, however, by their
friends and the crowd, which had parted
for an Instant to allow them to decide dif
ferences, surged back and the incident was
The betting waa very dull all day yes
terday. The largest bet announced was
one of $50 to $100. A large number of small
beta were taken by the pool rooms, who
were forced to assume the Corbett end of
the betting at S to 6 to bring out any
money at all. While the pool rooms of
fered t to t on Corbett In the evening and
nearly all outsiders seemed to be favoring
Jeffries, there were very few takers. While
the general opinion prevailed that Jeffries
would win, there seemed to be very few
who were willing to carry the heavy end
and back their Judgment with money.
Quite a number of wagers were made re
garding the number of rounds the contest
would last, the number of rounds agreed
upon ranging all the way from five to the
limit, twenty. Almost all of these beta
were made at even money. After the be
ginning of the contest the pool rooms took
the Jeffries end of the betting and at
tempted to get some money up at 10 to I

no takers, and after the announcement of
the result of the third round the attempt

not be overtaken. Sergeant Slgwart came
along about the time the two men were
captured and one of them was turned over
to him,, while Detective Madsen went after
the other. The detective called to, mm xo

the officer to stop the man and Llckert
called to him twice to stop. When he kept
going the officer brought his artillery Into
play and at the first shot Cushlng fell. He
laid still until the officer reached him.

CHAUTAUQUA, N. T., Aug. li Tbo dis
cussion of mob law and lynching was con
tinued here today by Chief Justice Lore
of Delaware. His subject was 'The Rela
tion of the Law to tho Manifestation of the
Justice Lore, summarizing th effect of
mob rule, said It brutalized the Individual
man, destroyed free government and In
Continuing, he sold:
What Is the remedy? What Is the cure
for mobs? Most emphatically we say, the
remedy is not In hasty and feverish action
of courts of justice against the criminal
whose offense is the exciting cause.
Law has Its highest function in throwing
Its shield of protection before the Ignorant,
the weak and the helpless, and waa spe
cially designed as a barrier against tem
porary madness. The more brutal the
crime, the more degraded and Ignorant the
criminal, the more widespread and tense
the public rage, the more Imperative It Is
that courts of Justice should hear a fair,
calm and quiet hearing and the proof of
or I me be established, otherwise Innocent
men may bo convicted for a crime they
did not commit, as In the recent lynching
of a negro in the South, when it was found,
after his life had been taken, that he had
not been within twenty miles of the scene
of the outrage.
Duty of tho Conrts. "
When mob spirit rules, courts of Justice
Should be unyielding in their stand for fair
dealing, otherwise they simply become the
mob and vendors of vengeance and not of
Tho Judges of Delaware have no apology
to make for not listening to suggestions of
mob vengeance In the rase of George White.
One cure for mnb )hw unquestionably is
the fearless defense of the accused by his
Outside of violence, the remedy. In my
Judgment, Is that the people shall be taught
n season and out of season that our safety
as a people lies In implicit obedience to the
lnw. This should be taught In our public
schools, by the press, by the pulpit and on
Antirohy lurks under the pleasing garb
of liberty, and the assassin clothes himself
na a defender of human rights. Lawless
ness is our danger. Reverence of the law
and obedience to Its mandates is our safety.
A strong, masterful sentiment of such
obedience to law Is a sure cure for mobs. I
believe with United States Judge David
Brewer "that there Is going to be a reaction
against the atrocious crime with which the
papers have been filled." The fact that the
feople are now interesting themselves In
he discussion of this problem makes It
manifest that there Is a tendency toward
a change. I expect It will come soon.
