Ins defiance at tho West Side of Chi-c-n
go duiliiK the Cubs-Sox series, In
which ChlcnKo divides Into two camps
nboiit us friendly ns Turks nnd Itnllnns.
Itut thin did not prevent him from
watching the struggle of the two near
champion teams with enthusiasm and
commenting upon their efforts with
KNiu liberality and Impartiality.
"Ureat crowd," s.ild he. ns four men
racul tor the last bleacher seat. "Klne
mess or people for a little burs Wis
Heslon. We don't do better than till.)
In ChlcaRti. See 'em dropping over thai
bleacher fence like molasses flowing
over a quart tneasuie. I've heard a lot
of mean things about lioston, but you
can't tell tne that u lecture here". in
the bralnsionns of Drowning would
draw any crowd like this. .Jtoston Is all
right. She may be a little dippy on
Kicrrd tumhstoneo and family forestry,
but she Knows a million volt ball team
when she sees one. I'm proud of Ilos
ton." "I wish tney'il .jtop Mattering auto
mobiles around and play ball," he
growled a minute later ns Speaker
drovo off In his prize car. "That's tho
worst thing about these port-mortern
games. You always have to hang
around while they parcel out the auto
mobiles and silver bats and private
yachts nnd country houses. Baseball
makes mo nervous. It's getting too
wealthy. Stipposo Speaker should
pound off a S."'.uuO fingernail to-night
while he was herding up his share of
th day s receipts.
"What would happen? The Iloston
team would lose $100,000. four dozen
automobiles, n bale of vaudeville con
tracts, nine farms and a trip around
the world. Suppose Mathewson should
break J.o.oao worth of arm this
winter bcc.ittso a nickel's worth of

It would do to real estate around IGOth

Oh, here they Mart.
"Gosh, watch that man Devore iro
to first. Has ho got two legs or seven?
He doesn't have to have a batting aver
age. He's got a legging average of
about 3,000 foot tracks a minute. Looks
bad! First man up got a clean hit.
In some towns I know the fans would
bo starting homo now. That's tho dif
ference between pennant winning towns
"Watch Hsrzog on third," continued
Tetcy eagerly. "IIo's been making u po
litical speech ever since he got out there.
This makes ninety-two remarks he's
mado to Hubc In the last minute. What's
he asking him to do, fight Mexico? He's
pure tobasco, Hcrzog Is. Watch him.
He's mad at tlia universe. I'd give a
lot to seo Herzog and Johnny Evero In
a talking match."
It was a great game, perfectly fielded
and almost perfectly pitched, but It
didn't seem to suit Petey. At the fifth
Inning he yawned:
"Kino game," he said dreamily; "very
fine. Regular old master. I wish It
would get a little sloppy like yester
day's game. That was the real thriller.
Ilaaeball Is like humanity you can get
It too perfect. There Isn't any romance
In a perfect man. lie's dull ns ditch
water. 13ut when he sins once In a
while and repents the way yesterday's
game did It keeps you guessing. Not an
error to. day. Nothing doing. Very
The game grew old and Boston still
tolled scoreless. Petey grew impatient.
"Now what makes me tired Is the way
baseball fans waste their opportunities,"
he grumbled. "Here's thlrty-llvn thou
sand of them and what are they doing?
Waving a few banners and cheering at
stated Intervals. Why don't they root;
why don't they mako a noise'.' Many'H
thn time we've blown a halfback uver
ihe last two yards at Slwash with n
little extra yelllug. Why, I haven't
henrd anything hero or In New York
that wo would call a warming up yell at
u Slwash football game."
The first half of tho ninth passed.
With lioston two behind, Speaker hit
ime fo IiIkIi that It came down with
frost on In Fletcher's hands. Lines of
fans began to leave.
"Not me," said Petey, grimly. "A little
fun In tho ninth Is worth eight Innings

That's real noise for you there, hear

some one had turned It off at a faucet.
That's the difference between baseball
and football. In football wa turn tho

rtoSTON'. Oct. 10. At the usual ptellml
nurles at Fenway Park to-day Major
Fltiigerald was nilslng. He had busi
ness to attend to at City Hall and could
not get to the paik In time to take part
In the ceremonies attending the presenta
tion of the Chalmers automobile to Trls
Speaker. .Mr. Chalmers, Carl H. Tage
and Hen Mulford. .tr were In the ear
wle'n It was driven to the honi plate and
Mulford made the speech Instead of the
Mayor. Speaker was loudly cheered as he
rllinUtd In and took the wheel. Ho In
vited Iarry Doyle to sit beside htm ami
then drove the oar all the way around
the edge of the Held at a 'high rate of
speed. This 'was an .exhibition that the
fans had not looked for nnd Speaker
again was cheered for his clever manipu
lation of the steering gear.
At 1 o'clock a light brecza from the
the northwest tempered by a hot sun
made, everybody comfortable, but It was
r.ot long before the wind shifted to the
eust and the crowd began to shiver. Over
coats and sweaters were put on and the
women were protected from the cold blasts
with heavy wraps.
The sun blared all the afternoon and
for that reason lied Jack Murray played
left field with Devore In right. If Mc
Oraw had been nblu to anticipate the
stirring Incidents of the game he could
not have placed theso two men to bet
ter advantage for both of them undoubt
edly cut off runs with hair raising catches.
McfJraw had both Tesreau and Mar-
quard warming up before the game, but
the Hod Hot evidently knew that Mur-
qtiard would be New Yorki selection, for
they batted against the southpaw slants
of Hay Collins In practice.
When the crowd saw O'Brien warm
ing up there was some sinking of confi
dence, for the lioston rooters predicted
that O'Brien would lack control. finch
proved to be the case.
Bill Evans, representing the American
League called balls and strikes with Um
pire Klein of the National League mak
ing the base decisions. Silk O'Loughlln
did a statue act at the end nf the left
field foul line, while Hlgler spent most
of the afternoon leaning against the picket
fence in front of the right Held pavilion.
It la the general opinion that the um
piring so far baa been eminently fair.
There has been no attempt to favor either
team. A few mistakes have been made, J
but that Is liable to happen at any time.
Klem had several close decisions rut up '
to him on the bases to-aay, but ho did
not commit an error, even though a couple 1
of them went against the Giants, Kvans
called balls and strikes with rare Judg
ment, neither pitcher showing the slight- '
est dissatisfaction. i
Herrog came near getting Into another .
mess tn the ninth Inning when he tried I
to steal second nnd was beaten by Cady's j
tbrow. He slid spikes first Into Yerkes
although he probably did not mean to
Inflict an Injury. Yerkes was partially t
spiked, but he Jumped up quickly and
as Herzog turned to see If the Boston
second baseman was hurt the latter
blushed him aside without making coin-1
meat. This was the only Incident that '
would Indlcnt bitter feeling and It was i
The crowd had a, laugh coming when
the ground rules were announced. The

Just before the batteries were sn-

strong, Including three women and n one

headed by a band. By this time there
wasn't an Inch of standing room, even the
aisles In the open bleachers being Jammed
to the overflowing point. The Elks band
stationed In the middle of the grand stand
was surrounded by BOO men who kept
time to the music with American flags.
The nolfe was deafening after It hnd

O'Brien lost all control of the ball and
for several minute his life was made mis

SOME SPARTAN FANS LEFT.
Stay I'p tn See Gnme Urcaoan They
I.Ike to Talk Almnt It.
Thoe fans who sat up all the Ions cold
night beforo tho opening game of tho se
lies have learned their lesion. When they
saw their friends stroll unconcernedly Into
the grounds at noon on Tuesday to net
seats every bit as good as thelis, so pa
tiently waited fur, they thought hnrsh
things about themselves and decided that
tho next time they too would lie abed
and ent an uuhuirled breakfast. That's
why the line In front of the 2 and $t en
trances was ha thin at midnight last nlsht
that you couldn't really call It a line.
Of course theie were a few there, but
they were mostly those Spartan souls that
like to take jim for a "llttlii tramp" und
leave you sitting on the roadside some
where between Cos Cob, Conn., and Provi
dence, or like to go In swimming with
Commissioner Dougherty nt Coney Island
on Washington's Illrthday, or like to do
most anything hard and uncomfortable
that they can tell about afterward.
They appieciated the fact that they
could get seats and good ones at noon
to-day, but they seemed to prefer to sit
on a koap box at Klghth avenue and iriDth
otieet to Riving up the evening to some
thing real exciting like plnylng dummy
auction or hearing about political fauna
or reading about that terrible bloody bat
tle all oier the Datchllch mountains that
the correspondent of the .Voi-on Vremya
heard about In a Vienna bar fioni a
filend on the Matin, who Rot It from a re
porter for the Dully Mall, who has an un

The weather man holds forth hope for
the fans to-day nnd the third gaiuo of
tho series between the Giants nnd Ited
Sox may be pulled off without Interfer

there will be Increasing cloudiness, tftb
