BALL THAT'S VICTOR
Bean Eaters' Star Mound
Man Called to Box Too
Late to Score But No
Runs Made on Him
NEW YORK, Oct. 1. The fighting
todjy In the last trench, was such that
the New York Nationals repulsed the
onrush of the Boston Americans, and
sent the Red Sor ack to defeat by
the score of 3 to 6 in the sjxth game
of the world's series. The victory for
the Sox would have carried with it
the title of world's champions for
1912.
When "Rube" Marquard walked off
the polo grounnds -with his second
triumph over llostoh tucked away, he
was elated. His pitching arm is such
that New York took hope that the
Giants might .be able to capture tuo
more games and liring the title to
this city.
Bostons in Lead .
The world's series now stands, Bos
ton three sames won; New York two
games won: one contest a tie. On
! the turf Just back of first base, while
thirty thousand spectators were lea--
ing the grounds, Managers Stahl and
McGraw tossed a coin to determine
in which city the deciding game
should be played in the event New
York "Won tomorrow in. Boston. The
Hostons won. All the remaining
games will be played at, Boston's field.

line, so every man aboard the ships
could know the progress of the game.
Action In First Two Innings
All the action in today's game came
early, and when the smoke of tattle
flowed away at the end of the sec-
ond inning, the score stood 5 to 2
in favor of the Giants. Thereafter
neither side could add a tally !n tho
face of thp superb twirling of the
two left banders, "Rube" Marnuard
and Ray Collins. The Boston south-Dan.-
had been called to the firing lino
after the Giants had touched off an
explosion of hits of "Buck O linen,
the moist ball pitcher. The fusillade
of hits came with such suddenness
that for the first time in the series
the Boston inlfield was unable to meet
the attack of the New Yorks.
O'Brien Balked
Two crisp doubles, four singles and j
a balk by O'Brien, aouoie-netiea me
New Yorks five runs in tbo first in
nlng. The four singles were garnered
by the Giants In a slow infield of
Tollers which on the soggy diamond
rere difficult to hmdle. Boston made
itn tallies in the second on Mar-
ijuard's error on Gardner's grounder
and a hit by Stahl, a two-base smasa
by Engle, who batted for O'Brien.
rtuW Marnuard curved them over
low, then sent up his fast ones around
the necks of the Boston batters. On.s
of the results of Marqnard's service
was the great day for the Giant out
fielder trio of gardener s Murray.
Snodgrass and Devore, who covered
seres of ground and gobbled up no
less than fifteen fly balls.
Murray Is Hot One
Of these. "Red"' Murray, In the
right garden, whose flery Iocka
seemed to glow as a beacon to tne
Boston batters, so many drives did
they send his way, captured seven,
while Snodgrass took six and Devore
two.
The Bostons fought gamely to uv
ercome the lead of five runs, which
the Giants piled up at the start The
Red Sox made two tallies in the sec
ond, but the attack was broken in
the third, with a brilliant catch made
by Snodgrass. This play was the
turning point in Bostons onenne
Stahl made first on a hit when Wae
ner drove a screaming liner to deep
center. Snodgrass turned and ran
toward the fence. The drive looked
good for a home run with Stahl round
ing second and with Wagner turning
first, when Snodgrass caught the ball
as it came over ais snouiuer.

That ended the game for Boston,
with the exception in the eighth that

Ing in tho Huachucas. It is said that
he entered the ranch house and stuta

COLONEL'S

Is About to Take Seat in His Automobile, Takes
Careful Aim But Rough Rider's Life Is Saved by

MILWAUKEE, Oct 14. Col. Roose

tonight as ho was leaving Gilpatrlck
hotel for the coliseum to make a
speech. His wound Is superficial ani
the colonel went on ond began his
speech after he had een his assassin
arrested and taken to tho police sta
tion. Henry F. Cocheme seUed the -assassin
and held him nntil tho police
men came up. The mob surged
around the man who apparentl was
radical on the subject of Roosevelt
runnln; for another term. The man
Is small In stature and admitted fir
ing the shot and said "any man look
ing for a third term ought to bo
shot"' In notes found in his pockets
nt the police station were statements
that the man had been visited in a
dream by the spirit of McKiuley who
had said. Indicating Roosevelt: "This
Is my murderer, acnge my death."
Roosevelt was taken to the emergen
cy hospital.
Writes Proclamation.
The would-be a3sass!n is live feet,
five Inches in height and weighg 170
pounds, of light complexion and bald.
He had written a proclamation which
was found in his clothing and reads;
"Sept 15, 1901, 1.20 a. in. In a
dream I saw President McKinley -sit
up in a monk's attire by whose side
I recognized Theodore Roosevelt The
dead president said: This Is my mur

Sept. 13, 1902, 1.30 a. m. While writ

the shoulder and said: "Let not a
murderer take the presidential chair;
avenge my death.'"
"I could plainly see Mr. McKlnley's

-swear this above writing is nothing
but tho truth."
Th'rd Term His Protest
Another note found his pockets
reads: "So long as Japan could rise
to be the greatest power in the world,
despite of hor surviving tradition
more than two thousand years old, as
General Nogi so nobly demonstrated,
it Js the duty of the United States of
America to uphold the third tenn

tife Saved by Papers.
Roosevelt's life probablv was saved
by the manuscript of his speech de
livered tonight. The bullet struck his
manuscript which retarded the force
as it passed through Into the fle3h.
The acsassin was prevented from
firing a second shot by Albert H.
Martin, one of Col. Roosevelt's tno
secretaries. Col. Roosevelt just
stepped Into the automobile when the
assassin pushed his way through the
crowd into the street and firfcd. SeA
retary Martin, who was standing In
the car with the colonel, leaped on
the man's shoulders and bore him
to the ground.
Sees Flash of Gun,
Mr. Martin caught the flash of the
revolver as the shot was fired and
leaped over the car a second after
the bullet had sped on its way. Col.
Roosevelt barely moved as the shot
was fired. Before the crowd knew
what had happened, Martin, who It
sit feet tall and a former looinan
DIJL ICVi . e .w..w.
player, 'anded square on the nssas -
sln'r shoulders and bore him to the
crnund. He threw his right arm
about the man's neck, with a death.
like grip, and with his left arm he
pinned the hand that Bern tne revoi-j
ver. Col. Roosevelt stood calmly
Iookln- on as though nothing had hap
pened. Martin picked up the man as:
thoagh be were a child and carried
him the few feet which separated
them from the car, almost to the
colonel's side.
Crowd Would Kill Assassin.
"Here he Is." said Martin. "Look
at him, colonel." All this happened
within a few second and Rooscvejt
stood gazing rather curiously at the
man who had attempted his life, be.
fore the stunned crowd realized what
was going on. Then cries of rage
went up and It seemed for a moment
the assassin would be torn to pieces
by the Infuriated crowd and it was
Rooeevelt himself who Interfered in
behalf of the man. Ha raised his hand
and motioned Imperiously to the
crowd to fall back. The crowd aV
first was not disposed to heed Roose
velt's words or "stand bacn, don't
hurt him." But at length it fell
back and permitted Secretary Mar
tin and Captain A. O. Glrard of Mil
waukee who were on tho front seat
and -who jumped almost at the same
tlmo and in an Instant the man was
overpowered and disarmed.
j j. -
LIFE SAVED BY
E OF MANUSCRIPT
A wild cry of "lynch hln" went up
from the crowd. Col. Roosevelt spoke
to the people and told them to spare
the assassin. S
The man was taken into the hotel
and held there until he was removed
to the police station.
Rooscevelt Insists on Speech.
In splto of the entreaties of hl3
physicians, Roosevelt insisted upon
delivering his addjess. He said: "1
will make this speech or die, one or
the other." Col. Roosevelt completed
his speech at 9.45 o'clock and was
then taken to the emergency hos
pital It is believed bis injury is not
serious. The colonel felt no pain at
the time the shot was fired and ho
was not aware he was shot until on
his way to the auditorium. His at
tenlion then was called to a hole ra
his overcoat, and he found bis shirt
was soaked In blood. He insisted ho
was not badly hurt A superficial ex
amination of the wot-nd was made
when he reached the auditorium and
three phyricians agreed he was in no
immediate danger.
No one in the party, including Col
onel Roosevelt himself, entcrtainea
the slightest notion that the Colonel
had been Bhot He felt no shock or
pain at the time, and it was as
sumed the bullet went wild. They had
driven hardly one of the four blocks
from the hotel to the auditorium when
John McGrath, another of Roose
velt's secretaries, uttered a sharp ex
clamation and pointed to the Colon
el's breast
"Ivook, Colonel," said he, "there's
a hole in j our overcoat"
Roo'sevelt not Dismayed
Colonel Roosevelt looked down
and saw the hole, then unbuttoned the
big army coat he was wearing and
thrust his hand beneath it, and when
he withdrew it. his fingers were
stained wtth blood. Colonel Roose
velt was not at all dUmayed.
"It looks as though I have been
hit." he said, "but I don't think it is
anything serious."
Dr. Curry Terrell, of Dallas, Texas,
Roosevelt's physician, who entered
the automobile just before it started
off tns!Sted the Colonel return to his
: hntpi n nnlit nnt hpar nr it. and
cine. Wis., who were in the audlencV,
came to the dressing room on a call
from the platform, and made a super
ficial examination. They agreed it
was impossible to hazard a guess a
to the extent of the Colonel's injur
ies, and that he should by all means
go at once to a hospital.
Will Speak or Die
"I will deliver this speech or die,
one or the other," was Colonel Roose
velt's reply. Despite the protests of
tho physicians, the Colonel strodo
out of his dressing room to the stago.
Several thousand persons, who
packed the big auditorium, cheered
loudly as he entered, and without a
word Indicating what had happened,
went to his seat
For several mlniutes the crowd,
no man of whom suspected the Col
onel tore a bullet In bis body, kept
up the cheering. Then Colonel Co
chems stepped to the front of the
platform and held up his hand.,Thero
was something In his manner "that
had an effect on the crowd, and the
, ...... .... .. --
j cheering died suddenly away.
I have something to tell you," Col-
Cocbems said, "and I hope you will
receive the news with calmness." His
j voice shook as he spoke, and a death-
like stillness settled over the throng.
"Colonel Roosevelt has been shot;
he is wounded," he said In a low tone,
but such was the stillness that every
one heard it A cry of astonishment
and horror went up from the crowd,
which was thrown into confusion in
an instant. Cocbems turned and
looked Inquiringly at Roosevelt
"Tell us. are you hurt?" he asked.
The men and women shouted wildly.
Some rose from their seats and rushed
forward to look, more closely at Col
onel Roosevelt, who rose and walked
to the edge of the platform to quiet
the crowd.
Raises Hand and Stills Crowd
