-New York. Oct . A .strlpllWC with
braided arm and a flafctlnc heart car
ried the Boston Red Sox throuah ylctory
over the New York Giants In the open
ing same of the world's series this after
noon. "Smoky Joe" they call him. although
when he made his appearance In the land
of the llvins twenty-three years ago this
month, his fond parents thought the world
would know him only as Howard Emer
son Wood, and "Smoky Joe" it was who
emerged from that fierce fight up under
Coogan's Bluffs with the lion" share of
Ihe glory.
Let them analyze the game with ex

Let them take It up particularly by play,
move by move, and show how a crashing

Harry Hooper and Steve Yerkes in the
seventh inning broke through the pitch
Ins defense of Big Charley Tesreau. the
hope of Gotham, but when all Is said
nd done it was the chilled steel arm
of "Smoky Joe." He lifted the Sox

Wood at Zenith of Fame.
You have been told of Joe Wood's
diamond deeds In columns of type; you
have read -and listened to speculation as
to his prospects in the championship tilt
for many weeks, and' you know that fans
esteem him great in his calling, but
never will be greater than he was In
the last half of the ninth Inning this
afternoon.
The quick shift in the Giant attack
engineered by the master mind of base
l.all brought the big town pack snarling
tt the heels of the Kansas City boy.
There he held a two-run lead as he
faced the Giants In their final Inning, but
in a moment the advantage was reduced
to a single point, with runners on third
end second base and but one out.
The roar of forty thousand voices beat
about the cars of the wonderful young
pitcher as he faced Arthur Fletcher, the
long-shinned shortstop of the Giants,
crouching across the plate like a sprint
er for the gun. Squatting on his
haunches In the coaching box off third
base, McGraw. the Giant chief, was
snapping commands (o Herzog, who
nervously Jockeyed back and forth along
the base line, while Becker, running for
Big Chief Meyers, pranced around sec
ond base.
Slip Meant Disaster.
From the coaching box off first the
voice of Christy Mathewson rolled In
unceasing chatter that could be heard
above the mad din of the human bowl
in which the scene was set. A mere
single meant defeat for Wood, and Bos
ton, because of the fleet Herzog and
Becker, would surely score. The slight
est slip of any sort "meant disaster
even a long, fly to the outfield would
bring a tie" score, and "Smoky Joe"
knew all this as he fingered the balL
He took his time. He made one or two
flings to second to make the agile
Becker keep close to the bag; he
walked around in a small circle Just
behind the box, pfeking up loose dirt
and rubbing it on his bands.
And then when he was ready he
pitched to Fletcher with all that blind
ing speed which gives him his name
and his place among the great right
handers of basebalL He struck the
Illinois boy out for the third time of
the afternoon, making a total of ten
men he had fanned with the dazzling
-smoke" of his delivery.
The next man up was Otis Crandall,

Mighty Rally in Ninth by the
Gotham Batters Nearly Turns
Tide Against the Red Sox.
ONE THROW TELLS THE TALE
Battle Narrows Down Until Passed
Ball Would Have Snatched Vic
tory froi Stall's Boys.
By WILMAM PEET.
New York. Oct 8. Battling against a
ninth inning rally such as has never
before been witnessed Inthc history of a
world's berles. Joe Wood, Boston's sen
sational hurler, demonstrated to the mon
ster crowd In the Polo Grounds, this
afternoon, that he Is one of the greatest
pitchers In the world. He won his game
4 to 3.
With second and third crowded, one
out and Fletcher and Crandall on deck,
the outlook was not very promising for
"Smoky Joe.." but the Bed Sox (linger
was game to tne core, and whiffed the
pair, ending what will go down Into his
tory as the greatest game of baseball
ever staged In a series for the champion
ship of the world.
The feat of fanning Fletcher and Cran
dall alone is something to be proud of,
but when It Is taken Into consideration
that Wood was pitching before a crowd
of 40,000 howling fans, each eager to see
him beaten; that McGraw. the ablest
general of the diamond hurling biting
remarks at him from the third base line,
and Christy Mathewson was shouting at
him for the first base box, his victory
Is all the more remarkable.
Lnck Tilth. Giants.
New York received all the breaks dur
ing the engagement, which made the
struggle probably the most exciting ever
staged in Gotham. Time and again a
weak hit grounder would land safe or
a pop fly would fall Just out of reach
of the outfielders, giving th? Giants a
hit. "Smokey Joe" was not In the best
of form, but he managed to fan eleven
Giants. Also, he was the real tMng In
the pinches.
Fletcher was easily disposed of m the
ninth session, as he had fanned twice
previously, but Otis Crandall was another
proposition. Crandall is known in the
National League as a dangerous hitter a
man to be feared at any stage of the
game and that Wood succeeded In strik
ing him out in the face of almost unheard
of odds Is a big feather In the cap of
the Boston fllnger.
The first ball pitched to Crandall rightly
was called a ball by Umpire Klem.
The next two were fouled and then Joe
lost his grip and smoked over two wide
onex The count then stood 3 and - What
would the next pitch be? That question
was in the mind of almost every man
within the ball park. Herzog on third
and Becker on second, were on their toes
ready for the dash homeward. But they
had no chance to dash except for the
clubhouse. There Is no record of the
speed of the next thing Wood hurled over
the platcvbut It is safe to assert -nat
It violated the ordinance of every citr
is the Union. Mr. Crandall had a hunch
that It was coming over the plate. Its
epprcach he could not see. Anyway,
he swung, but the ball was reposing In
the big mitt of Forest Cady and there
was nothing to it for the Giants but to
admit that the victory belonged to Wood.
McGraw Jfot Saperstltloas.
McGraw proved, that superstition Is
not In his make-up. Instead of start
ing Christy Mathewson, who had
pitched two world's series openings
and won them both, he gave the Job to
Charley, alias Jeff Tesreau. McGraw
figured thus: If Jeff pitches one of his
good old games the Red Sox will have
trouble scoring. If he is bad. It Is bet
ter to have htm against Wood, who Is
almost bound to win, than to waste

committee yesterday that he had, ex

during the primary campaign. This
amount is exclusive of moneys raised In
various localities by State committees
for the election of Taft delegates to the

The figures presented by President
Taft's manager are, he said, not final.
McKlnley told the committee that he
coum not remember all the contributions.
and as far as he now knows there Is
no recant which will give the, exact
amount. On cross-examination by Sena

that this figure probably would be In

For the Roosevelt candidacy approxi

of funds raised and expended In the vari

Mr. McKlnley said he had no knowl

Keynote of Addresses at Ban
quet ot Supreme Councils
ot Scottish Rite.
Paying an eloquent tribute to President
Taft and the American people, for the
advances made by them to th other na
tions of the world to bring about uni
versal peace. Sir John S. Gibson, gov
ernor general of the province of Ontario
and sovereign grand commander of the
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of
Freemasonry in Canada, last night, at a
banquet given at the New Wlllard in
honor of the delegates to the second
international conference of supreme coun
cils of the Scottish Rite, predicted that
the time was not far distant when na
tions like individuals would settle their
differences In a court of arbitration In
stead of resorting to force.
"Seldom," said Sir John, "has the
world been so stirred by the utterances of
a single man. as it was at the eloquent
pleading of President Taft for this coun
try, the greatest in tne wona, to maxe
the first advances towara universal peace.
"L for one. hope that the time has ar
rived, and every member of the Scottish
Rite present here to-night lives In the
hope that the tune is near when na
tions, like Individuals, will settle' their
differences In courts.
One Common Brotherhood.
'Sensible people believe that such a
thing la possible as the bringing of the
nations ot the world together Into one
great family.) In which peace and good
will are Its foundations. We are not as
sembled here alone for the purpose ot
uniting and strengthening the ties of
friendship in our order, but through It t
exert every possible effort to bring the
men of all nations into one common
brotherhood.
"I trust that when the next Interna-
Unal conference meets, five years from
now, that we will be able to present a
solid front to carry out this Important
mission. I believe that by that time
those who are not represented here to
night will have thought better of the
sufficiency of their reasons for holding
aloof, and will be ready to Join with us."
'My one earnest desire 'Is to be able
to live to see the day when the presnt
.rreat standing armies If the-world are
turned Into .Industrial armies, and that
the huge dreaanougnis ana battleships,
which, are the proud boast of the na
tions ot to-day, will be' converted Into

of Bishop Harding.
Believing that the spirit o untgst is
rife among the English masses and that
Socialism in Its most anti-religious form
Is daily gaining many converts from the
ranks of the wage-earners. Right Rev.
Edward Stuart Talbot, Lord Bishop of
Winchester, said In an Interview last
night that the evil could be successfully
combated only by a form of Christian
Socialism which would result In a more
equal distribution of the wealth accumu
lated by the hand of labor.

ing until Friday. With Bishop Talbot
also came Silas McBee. of New York
citr.
Lord Bishop Talbot said that the Church
of England Is taking a firm stand against
the brand of Socialism as propounded by
the disciples or Karl Marx and Bernard
Shaw, and added that he had been read
ing Shaw's works of late, with a view ot
getting a morei Intimate acquaintance
with the doctrines of which he was an
exponent.
"I must confess," said the Bishop,
"that it Is difficult to nenetxate beneath
his cloak ot cynicism and apparent In
sincerity. I can hardly believe at times
that Shaw Is serious in some of his com
ments on life.
Turning from sociological problems In
England to affairs In the United States.
Bfthop Talbot said that few Englishmen
seem to comprehend American politics or
ine turn oi pomicai events in this coun
try, and that, as a nation, England had
no particular Interest as to the outcome
of the Presidential election.
The Bishop Is a giant in stature, nearly
six feet in neignt. Broad of shoulders
and of very powerful build. With his
red beard and mustache-sorinklert with
gray, and wearing knee breeches, leg-
gins, a iongtaiiea coat and flat crown
hat the conventional English ecclesias
tical attire of his rank he makes a
striking figure.
Bishop Talbot's Washington stay will
Include an evening, service to-morrow

Recent reports emanating from Ire

Concerning L'Uter.
"I have not been surprised to see in
American riewspepers the last few days
sensational reports of the opposition of
Ulster to the home rule movement,"
said Mr. Redmond. "Plays to the audi

when they find that they are beaten.
The reports contain absolutely no truth.
It .is not true that Ulster Is opposed to
home rule. That province has sent a
band of men. loyal and strong, who will
sit in Parliament next week to fight for
home rule until we are victorious.
"Seventeen members, all from Ulster,
constitute practically the only opposition
in the .world to our plans. They are the
ones who' have spread these reports of

who have Inspired the scenes In Belfast
in order to give the impression that
there Is a strong opposition to home rule.
"In the House of Commons they are

.Topeka. Kas., Oct. (.In eight speeches
extended from Norton. Kan,, to Kansas
City, Gov. Wilson for the first time
to-day outlined the method by which he
proposes. If elected, to regulate compe
tition. The Governor suggests a law
which will compel the trusts to sell
their product at a uniform price through
out the country, so that anybody can
come Into competition with them In a
local fleld without being crushed by un
derselling. The candidate added that If
the local merchant doesn't have to carry
any water, he can best the great com
binations In his own market.
As a means of diversion the candidate
rode twenty miles, from Clyde to a water
ing station, the first stop, in the cab of
a big mogul locomotive. No. S90, the pride
of the Rock Island Railroad. The Gov
ernor was at lunch when J. A. Stewart
Introduced Frank C Connolly, the travel

Island lines. . Connolly told the Governor
he would feel honored to have him ride

"I shall be very glad to do It." said
the candidate. "It will not. however, be
my first experience ot the kind. I rode
in a locomotive in New Jersey when I
was a candidate for Governor."
When the train stopped at Clyde the
candidate went forward and took a seat
on the fireman's bench. Two of the news

the engineer took it in hand and as he
expressed It. "opened her up wide." The
twenty miles were covered in a trifle
over twenty minutes, including one stop
at a railroad crossing and several slow
downs going around curves. One straight
stretch of two miles mas covered In
elshtv seconds. The candidate enjoyed
the. experience Immensely. Occasionally

Grimy vtrlth Coal Dost
The big steel monster swayed from
side to side and the governor was ob
liged to hold fast to the side of the cab.
There was also a good deal of pounding
from the big driving wheel'. When the
ride was over the governor's face was
black with coal dust. He looked like a
real engineer as he hurried to the wash
room to clean up.
"It was a delightful experience." he
said afterwards.
The governor had big and enthusiastic
meetings everywhere. The train arrived
at Norton at 7 a. m.. two hours late,
because of a freight wreck which neces
sitated the employment of a special en
gine to haul the governor's private cars
to Norton. The special traveled 10S miles
in 110 minutes. Though it was 7 a. in.,
there was a large crowd at the station.
The governor apologised for getting the
people up so early and talked to them
about the tariff and the trusts.
To Rearnssite Prices.
Here Is Gov. Wilson's explanation of
bow he proposes to regulate competition.
This particular speech was delivered at
Clyde, Kans.:
"Do not be deceived by these things I
see on all the billboards that prices huve
Increased all over the world. So they
have, but not In proportion to the In
crease In the United State: and In these
things where monopoly exists In this
country the prices have Increased mor
than in other things, and the Democratic
party- Is not now fighting the tariff of
the United States as a protective policy
but as a means of doling out special fa
vors under the cover of which men can
get together and establish the prices that
they please. They can do that Just as
long as competition is not regulated .for
tbey got where they are by unregulated
competition. I mean by being allowed to
do anything that was unfair in competi
tion that they chose to do.
"You can prevent unfair competitive
methods by law. For example, you know
If you start an enterprise In any part
of Kansas In competition with any ot
these great combinations, the first thing
they will do is starve you out on the
only market you have got-namely. the
home market by underselling you
there, and losing on their sales there, be
cause they can make good on their sales
elsewhere, and can afford to lose when
you cannot. .,.
"Now you can perfectly well establish
the principle of law that the prices may
be established as they please, but they
have got to sell at uniform prices
throughout the country, and so that
anybody who chooses to come Into com

declared war against Turkey, diplomat
Ic circles are to-night awaiting like fori

and Greece.
Constantinople Is under martial lawj
and troops are being rushed to the front.
Several regiments departed late to-day
and more detachments will be moving
all night, according to dispatches from.
the porte.
A battle Is In progress on the Monte
negrin frontier, between the Turks and
Montenegrins, supported by the Malls-
Although the powers have not ceased!
their efforts tcarard a peaceful mtle-l
ment, they now regard the task as ho;-H
kas. Had Montenegro's Proclamation-'
been deferred until to-morrow the result!
might have been different, as the simul
taneous presentation of peace proposals
at Constantinople. Sofia, Belgrade and
uetttnje was to have taken place only
few hours after the promulgation of the
Montenegrin ultimatum.
Csar Must Act.
Bulgaria's proclamation is expected
i
toJ
night. To hesitate now to suport hla
ally would not only cost Czar Ferdinand!
his throne, but probably his life. All
the Balkan states are swept by war en-j
thustasm, according to dispatches to-j
night from the capitals.
The Montenegrin charge d'affaires ac
Constantinople and his entire staff havaJ
left the Turkish capital.
Although the population of Montenegro
Is not more than SO.OCO. their army Is
probably more feared than any of equal
numbers in the world. It Is believed taey!
will not fight far beyond their own terri
tory, but will endeavor to draw their ad
versaries back to the mountains of Mon
tenegro, where the natives would be
practically unconquerable.
Turkish Capital
Full of Troops
Constantinople. Oct, ?. Constantinople;
Is a scene of unprecedented martial ac-4
tlvity to-night. A council of war haa
been In session at the grand vizterata
since afternoon, when Montenegro's de
claration of war was announced and!
plans for the conduct of the many-sided!
conflict are being formulated.
At midnight the Bulgarian, Greecian.
and Servian ministers had received na
Instructions from their governments, but
they have made everything ready at their
legations to make instant departure upon,
the receipt of the inevitable proclama-j
tions of war.
The city is inder martial law, and
troops are moving to the westward by
special trains. Regiments are encamped
in ail the plazas awaiting orders to tho
front.
The entire city Is In the streets watch
ing the preparations. All the govern
ment departments are working with
feverish haste.
Wild Enthnslasm.
Throughout the evening there was wild
enthusiasm as dispatches come from tho
Montenegrin frontier telling of battles.
These conflicts are waging along prac
tically the entire border. A brisk skir
mish has occurred at DJumabala. on tho
Bulgarian frontier. Greek bands are op
erating in the neighborhood of Dlakata,
and there is fighting along the Servian
border line, as well. It was reported
that the Montenegrin forces which this
morning surrounded the Turkish town
of Berana bad effected Its capture after
a stubborn battle.
Peace now Is a forgotten- possibility.
Austria and Russia might be able to
check the rising war tide by occupying
Servla and Bulgaria, but that Is a re
mote contingency, one not to be con
sidered. There is no desire for peace.
Formal Declaration.
The formal declaration of war of Mon
tenegro against Turkey was delivered to
the sublime porte to-day by Parliament
