Crowd Ii Satisfied with
GAME PEOVES TO BE A JOKE
Br WILLIAM PKET.
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 7. Griffa Na
tionals wound up the 1912 season here this
afternoon, defeating; the Xew York Yan
kees In an exhibition game, 6 to 4, before
a good-sized crowd.
Nick Altrock and Jay Carl Cashlon did
the twirling for the Nationals, the for
mer allowing but two scratch hits In
three Innings and Cashlon four during
the remaining six rounds.
- Capt. George McBrlde had charge of
the Washington team. Grift remaining In
New York. Hal Chase piloted the Yan
kees and showed up with but ten men
and nine uniforms.
The game Itself -was a Joke. The New
Yorkers had but three regular players-
Chase, summons, and Paddock. Jlc
Bride's boys could easily have rolled up
a dozen runs. Fisher and Thompson were
hit almost at U1. and the Nationals de
liberately allowed themstlves to be put
out stealing In order to shorten the
Croird ! Fooled.
The Hartford newspapers advertised ex
tenshely that Johnson and Russell Ford
Ttould hook up In a pitchers battle.
Neither twlrler accompanied the teams,
but the crow'd appeared to be perfectlj
satisfied for the reason that somebody
passed around the tip that Johnson was
pitching. It was a case of mistaken
Identity, as Cashlon. being a compara
tiiely newcomer to the league, was not
recognized. The Carolina curver fanned
teten. and. strange to relate, did not
Kite a bat,.? on balls. It h. doubtful if
Johnson could hac done an) better.
Capt. and Acting Manager McBrlde
benched himself and placed Ray Morgan
Danny 'Moeller, with three safe blows,
led the Nationals at the bat. Milan had
a double -and triple to his credit.
( Scon In First.
The Nationals scored In the opener,
n hen Moeller singled, stole second, and
came home on Schaefex's poke to cen
ter. Milan opened the Nationals, fourth
with a double, and Simmons' error scored
him. A triple by Morgan followed bj
singles from Cashlon and Moeller and a
wild throw which Thompson contrib
uted In the fifth boosted the Nationals
total to six runs.
Errors gave the Yanks a marker oft
Cavhion In the fourth. The big fellow
was Iniinclble until the ninth, when he
Kt up a trifle, and was touched up for
a quartvi of. slams good for three runs.
Immediately after the game the Wash
ington club left for New York In order
to put In a good night's sleep for the
opening' of the world's series to-morrow,
when the club will be the guests of

Joe Wood vs. Christy Mathewson
In First Game of Big Series
Popular Opinion Favors
Choice to Start
By W1LI.1AM PEET.
New York, Oct, ".Howard Emerson
Wood, alias Joe. and Christy Mathew
son. alias "Big Six," were the persons
most talked about In this big city to
night. Of course, there was a lot of
conversation about "Red" Phil. "Jack"
Zellg, "Lefty" Louie, "Dago Frame ana
"Gyp the Blood," but none or tnese par
ties was considered as possibilities In
the w orld s series, and the world'a series
Is eeh more prominent here to-night
than the Rosenthal murder or the extra
charge on butter and bread at hotel
There are New York fans ho insist
that Charley Jeff Tesreau will pitch to
morrow's game for the Giant. Perhaps
he will, but the people who know Mc
Gran's methods and superstitions think
Matty will be the New York guy when
the Giants trot out on the field for the
first game to-morrow afternoon.
Mr. Mathewson has had the privilege
of taking part In two world's series. In
13C3 he pitched the first game against the
Athletics and won it. He repeated that
triumph last fall. To be sure, the Macks
won the 1911 series, but that doesn't fig
ure much with MrGraw. The first game
counts for a whole lot. The winner of
that game has a big advantage, as shown
by the outcome of the series In 190$,
19CS. 1309 and 1910.
Cnotl Weather Promised.
New York is prajlns that the present
weather will continue. Nobody could
ask for n. better brand than was banded
out to-day. It was the sort that makes
overcoats uncomfortable. Last year the
world's series was fought under the most
discouraging conditions. It was warm
the first day, to be sure, but there was
always a threat of rain, and the rain
made good for six dajs in succession,
killing most of the Interest In base
ball's biggest event, and discouraging the
folks that came from vvest, aouth and
North to see the doings. The prophets

that to-morrow's weather would be the

The Red Sox blew Irto town this

This hotel Is comparatively near the
Polo Grounds, forty blocks closer to the
battle ground than the hostelry usually
patronized by the American League
teams in New York. The entire Stahl
gang was brought along. In spite of the
fact that only one game will be prayed
here before the Boston end of the series
John Heydler, one citizen of New York
who can be relied on to tell the truth.
Informed us that all the reserved seats
at the Polo Grounds had been sold out,
and that to-morrow's attendance would
beat all records. That's a sweeping
statement, for It means that the crowd
to-morrow will exceed the 35,000 that saw
the opening game between the Giants
-and Athletics last faU.
Bettlam Favors Red Sox.
The betting here to-night was 10 to S,
with the Red Sox favorites. Little
wagering was done, for the New York
ers, although they consider their team
the best in the world, were holding out
for better odds, and the Boston bugs
were unwilling to yield.
Players on both teams were confident.
"I don't see how we can lose." quoth
Larry Doyle, winner of the Chalmers
Trophy. "We have the better club and
the better pitchers. We are stronger
than we were last J ear. and we made
the Athletics hustle. I am sure the Red

Sox are no better than Mack's team was
last fall. I will admit that we were
defeated by a superior club, but I firmly
believe we are much Improved, and 1
don't see where the Boston team has
anything on the team representing Phila
delphia In 1911. Moreover, we have the
advantage of experience In one world's
series, and thit ought to help."

Boston fans, is the most valuable player

a talkative mood. He relieved himself of
Just one short pa r.i graph on the all-Important
subject as follows:
"Tve never seen a better ball team than
the one we have. We may be beaten, but
I don't see how It'a possible,"
The Chalmers automobile, awarded to
Doyle as the most valuable min to his
club In the National League, will be pre
sented to the Giant captain before to
Local hotels are crowded to their ca
pacity. Even' one wants to see the first
game, and there will be probably as many
folks from out of town as Inhabitants
present when the series starts. The um
pires, O'Loughlin. Evans, Rlgler, and
Klem. will meet with the national com
mission members to-morrow to talk over
The Nationals, headed by Manager Grif
fith, will witness the game to-morrow.
Nick Altrock and Dutch Schaefer have
promised to be the real funmakers for
the party, and Griff's family Is confident
of having a rojal good time.
Titter Eleven Shifted.
Princeton, N. J.. Oct. 7 The Tigers
came out of the Lehigh game wltRout a
scratch, but Coach Cunningham was dis
satisfied with the work of several of the
men. So a big shake-up marked to
day's work. Capt. Pendleton was shifted
to quarter, as had been anticipated, and
Emmons was relegated to the second
team. There was no scrimmage, but
the signal drill was long and forced at
a fast pace.

Two Motorcyclei. Two Honei, aa

in Hovelty Race.
STEEPLECHASE COURSE DT SHAPE
Laurel, Md , Oct 7. Manager Brown,
of Laurel Park, to-day announced that
ha will furnish a unique race on Friday.
Two motorcycles, two horses, an au
tomobile, and a man runner will com
prise the novelty. Each will be handi
capped In order to make the event as
close a contest as possible. The motor
cycle riders and man runner have already
qualified by the elimination process, and
an exciting contest Is looked forward to.
The steeplechase course, which has Just
been completed. Is conceded to be one of
the best of Its kind In the country. Brown
will feature this part of the programme.
Many timber-toppers known to the pub
lic are now quartered at the track, and
the best steeplechase Jockevs In this or
any other country are riding at the
course. Allen, who is conceded to be one
of the star riders of America, Is here.
From time to time the management
will put on novelty races, such as this
one and those of last year. The charac
ter of the most of them have noras yet
been discussed or announced, but It Is
safe to say that Mr. Brown will make
There Is considerable talk about the
park concerning a match race between
the Schorr horse. Frog Legs, and T. C.
McDowell's, The Manager. It was gen
erally believed when Jthey met on last
Saturday that Frog Leg, after his won
derful stretch run on the opening day,
would beat The Manager.
lie did not do It, but there were rea
sons for his not showing up better than
he did. In the first place, it was stated
that the Schorr colt was sore going to
the post, another piece of gossip was that
Teahan allowed the colt to become pock
eted shortly after the start. It Is be
lieved that Frog Legs. In view of his
past performances, can make a better
showing than he did on his last start
against The Manager.
A match race of this kind certainly
would attract an Immense crowd, as
both horses have their following. The
Manager meets Frog Legs In the 5.000
