STORMING TH POLO GROUNDS FOR PRECIOUS SE4TS

ln the morning. A policeman a".kel her
what she wanted,
"I hare the money bore to buy two
ticket," she replied.
Surely you ore? not roIur to see the
game?" said the copper.
"Yea, I am, air." was the response,
My husband la an Invalid and ran't
stand here all this time."
"But it'a wash diy." remarked the
policeman," and you are neglecting
your home. Besides, you are not treat
ing the baby right Why, you von't
get up to the tie'xet o!flc? for several
houra and you haven't had anything t'
eat. Take my tip and go home." The
woman finally cons?nte.l to leave her
placs after a latecomer had forked over S3.
It made no difference how roughly
the plain clothes men handled undesir

action. The police In-ipca'or Cleared

Piddle Hrannirk, assistant secretary
rt tht N'ew York Basuball Club, who had
been watching the speculator on the
Speedway, took up a position at the main
entrance and hegan sinuling out man
after man who, he deviated, "had been
thers before." These uncles irahtx put
iipa terrific protest, hut they were drugged
unceremoniously from the lino and were
hustled away by the bluecoata, Hian-
nick probably spotted 2.VI of these persons

One of thou ejected returned with a ,

street. Mebsenper boys, with order
forsaats, who couldn't (inca suimfueiory
explanation for their iirtHfiife. were tolll
that no tickets would e sold to them.
All sorts of badges and credentials
were used by fans who wanted to beat
the line, hut in a larre majority f raxes
they were turned down Well dreseed
men who s.ild they were "regular intron"
received similir treatniem, but tliov
stood around wiltln fo- witnething to
turn up. In the Hue we-c follow, with

exhausted Hungry men piiid others
not in line to hold their place- while they
went to lunch In some cae- the sub
stitutes refold the pvdtiotis before tho
original owner came back
There were scraps here and there when
late arrivals tried to butt inn the long
line, but there wit nnlr one crreet for
disorderly conduct Probably the an
griest farl were tho who were pulled
out of lln accused of being speculators'
ngente when as a matter of fact they were
on the level and had been waiting all
night. One of them actually burst into
tws as he said to Tiik fjl'N man
"I got here at 2 o'clock tliix morning
and I've eaten all but one sandwich, whHi
you see in this newspaper I wouldn't
know a speculator if 1 saw one and I'm
r. regular patron My money is as good
anybody's, yet here f am thrown out
of the lin Worse than that, I'm here
to buy two tickets for my boss and now
f'll loeo my job." A half doen men
"ho had stood near this chap tried to
vouch for him. but thev were ignored.
A copper itrahhwi him by the scruff of
th neck and "moved" him away
The clanging gong of an ambulance
created sone ovcitement The horse was
galloping and the crowd was sure that
somebody had leen hurt Darting up
to the gate, the doctor. In his white duck
uniform, leaped out and hurried in
"What's the matter''" the driver was
"Oh, the doctor want to get a couple
cf tickets for to-morrow" he onsweied.
"Do you want to net in the line?'' asked
a gray coated special of a tall young man
who had worked through the private
gate and stood watching tho slowly mov
ing fans headed for the ticket booth.
"Sure I dol"
Well, slip me a 'tone' and do Just
what I tell you."
The coin was passed ever promptly and
the happy fan was pushed into the line,
the gray coat saying loudly.
"You step In here! When you gel in
side tell Crowley ,who is on the Speedway
gate, that he an't be relieved until 1
o'clock because Keilly is on duty here!"
"I'll tell him!" cried the fan us he moved
up to the 1x51 office ar.d got his tickets.
When the seats for to-day's game were
all sold the gate was closed temporarily
and men walned the length of the line
"Only Thursday and Saturday tickets
A few persons, disappointed, left the
line, but the others stuck like glue. It
was after 1 o'clock when the soldiers and
sailors, who bad been Invited to see the
(Hants and Highlanders play, began to
arrivo in Eighth avenue. They were told
to go back to the Speedwuy doors and
aa uiey paasflu in waning cwwa tnoy
ware good naturedly ionhed, Tim Hebrew
Orphan Asylum band marched up play

ing martial music and the weary funs
cheered. The little fellows were, allowed
lo pass in at the private gnte and eeverni
speculators, one of whom said he was
itie "lesder of iho band " followed them.
Another cheer greeted the tip that
lersone buying tiokuts could lemain iu
the grandstand and .ee the exhibition

after passing the stiles, rushed for choice
While no official figure, were announced
it was said that at least 4,000 tickets at
$3 each were sold for to-day's gamo,
lesB than 3,000 persons securing them
At this rate it was estimated that several
thousands of fans waited In vain, for
the supply for the other games was ex
hausted before they reached tho booth.
In all about 13,000 tiokets were sold in

The hour has arrived. The clash be
tween the best two teams in the realm
ot baJebn11 begins this afternoon, the
long awaited clash between the Giants,
who won the National League cham-
p'.nnshlp, and the Bostons, wno won the
American' League championship. Every

pennant winners takes on additional
glamour, hurrah and Interest, and at 2

Physically the Giants are ready to play
their best gamo.
The playing oj the Giants since they
won the pennant has been for the most
part Just sufficiently spry to keep them
fit and to bring them up to the world's
series eager for the battle and In shapo
to play th'lr best game. The New York
players are more confident than the
betting indicates the reneral public
teems to be regarding their chances of
victory. The fact that they ore the long
shots means nothing to them, They
count on themselves to pull through to
success, and the greater reputation of
the Hed Sox and the fact that the lat
ter are undoubtedly a formidable team
cutt no figure with them. When they're
playing their belt the Oiants believe
they have an even chance with the beat
team living, and they don't see any rea
son why they shouldn't play their boat
If the Oiants are nervous they aren't

and that Is their bearing now, They
have, been going along rpiletly during
the flutter of tho lust fow days, un -
demonstrative they are not a demon
strative team but nono the less cog
nisant of tho demands of the occasion.
With a manager who haa been Id two
world's series and players who have
been In one the Oiants have approached
the big test thla year with no unduo
mental excitement. They are seasoned
to conditions of that sort and have had
enough experience to glvn them ho

The Boston players arrived here last
night and went to a hotel In upper
Broadway, far' from the racket nnd

a quiet night. They were brim full
of confidence. Few teams have beaten

don't believe the Oiants can do It. Thoy
don'tj underrate the New Torks, but
theyehare the prevailing Boston belief
that the series won't go over five games.
Not that they expect any one game
to be easy; they are prepared to fight
hard in every one, but they do believe
