PHILLIES ANDjGIANTS ON WARPATH HERE. WHILE ATHLETICS SEEK SCALP OF YANK?
AT TOP SPEED
Trouble With New York
Last Year Inspires Men of
Dooin to Trounce Visitors
Increased Interest Hero in Con
tests Caused by Braves' Groat
Fight for Flag in National
It Is hardly fair to either the man
ners or tho players of tho clubs In tho
National League to nssumo that Mc
Graw's statement, In which ho remarked
that everybody wbb against him, la true.
Nevertheless, It Is a fact that tho Phil
lies have a two-fold purpose in defeat
ing the Giants, nnd If thoso efforts are
In vnln In tho games staged at Broad
nnd Huntingdon streets today and to
morrow, no follower of tho Boston
Braves will have a cnanco to assort that
tho local legion did not give tho enemy
Men in Good Shape to Put
Yankee Team on Run
and to March Through the
Collins, Barry, Schang and
Lapp, Fully Rocovorod From
Injuries, Now Playing Up to
This afternoon the Giants nnd Phillies
meet In another double-header. The first
game will be called at 1:30 o'clock. Tues
day thero will be only ono gamo nt the
local National I-eaguo Park, when tho
Now Yorkers will make their final np
pcarance of tho season here against tho
Poolnltcs. . , ...
If the double bill today Is played with
anything like the speed exhibited on Sat
urday, when the teams broke even, tho
fans will bo doubly pleased. That pair
of frays was completed in two hours and
i) minutes playing time, a major league
i -cord for 1911.
The double puipose of tho Thllllcs to
i '.i from the Giants dates back nt least
r year. In the first place Manager
1 noln's men want to win for the sake
fr the club standing; secondly the trouble
v llch arose last season at the Philadel
phia ball park between Addlo Brcnnan,
the Phllly hurlcr, nnd McGraw himself
has served to emphasize tho more or
less bitter feeling which has always
existed betweon tho two clubs. Tho feel
ing caused by this latter clrcumstanco
was further augmented during tho 1913
season, when McGraw mado a voln at
tempt to capture a gamo hero by de
fault, on the grounds that his men could
not see a pitched ball on account of the
fans In the centre field bleachers.
Naturally there Is a more vital Interest
In tho approaching Phllly-Glants games
than there has been this year. With
the Braves leading the New Yorkers
In tho dash for tho pennant by a nar
row margin, It Is needless to say that
tho eyes of tho entire baseball world
will bo turned on Philadelphia, nnxlously
awaiting the results of these contests.
While It Is generally ngreed that, all
things being equal In the National
League. McGraw's club should win, it Is
not universally admitted that they nro
equal. In Philadelphia particularly thero
Is kindly feeling for the Braves, to sny
nothing of a well-rooted belief that thoy
will be found at tho head of tho column
. .ti i.i on October 7.
NEW Yomc, Sept. 14.-Connle Mack's
recently bumped band of ball Jugglers
appear to be themselves again. Thoy no
longer are on the ragged edge of a tum
blo and agriln they feel confldont that
they will not only capture the games here
today and Tuesday, but thoy will make
their second successive triumphal march
through tho west, clinching tho flag bo
fore they nro again seen within the con-
lines of Shlbo Pork, Philadelphia. ,
What has bun characterized as a
slump, ,vis not a slump, properly speak
ing. To be sure, the champions dropped
four straights to the lied Hot on their
Inst visit to Boston; broke even with
the Nationals In Washington in a four
gamo series, and tied tho Bed Sox In
Philadelphia In what proved to bo a two
gamo series, owing to tho tio contest
played on lust Friday. Desplto this ap
parent slump, ih-j Maukmcn were seri
ously handlcnppi'd nt tho tlmo theso
games were dropped. Kddlc Collins should
novor have played In tho Red Sox games
In Boston, after his anklo was Injured
the Ilrst day. Ho played, but his work
was not of the regular Collins brand, be
cause tho Athletics' second-Backer could
not place any faith In his ankle. At this
same tlmo Barry was on the Injured list
with a spiked foot; Lapp and Schang
were out of tho games, which loft no de
pendable catcher. To this last fact can
bo attributed directly two of their de
feats in Boston.
Now, however, things have taken on
their custon.ary rosy huo for tho White
Elephants. All of the maimed aro In
good shupe. Both Schang and Lapp are
nblo to get In tho gamo nnd Collins and
Barry showed in their work against tho
Yankees on Saturday that thoy are ready
to set tho Wost aflamo'wlth their won
do?ful'"performancos around tho kcystono
Manager Chance will bo Indeed for
tunate If ho is ablo to land ono of tho
two gnmes on tnp for tho local fans.
Mack has given his orders that ho wants
tho pennant won ut the earliest date pos
sible regardless of tho effects on gate re
ceipts. The plnyors have responded to
his Instructions nnd are proparlng to give
the Detroit, Clovelnnd, Chicago and St.
Louis clubs a severe set of drubbings
nfter they leave the metropolis.
The Yankees resemblo a second divi
sion club now considerably more than
they did when tho Mackmen were here
on their last visit. The play of the Amer
ican Leaguers at the Polo Grounds has
been anything but a Joy to the fans,
tho chances aro that no attendance
records will be broken either this nftcr
noon or Tuesday.

Ideals have changed on motor cars, and the old

All the over-taxes which HUDSON engineers

And so handsome so perfectly equipped that
