NEW YOrtK. Oct 3. Fiftv thousand
dollars In checks received at the offices
of the New York Giants and tho Na-
iionai league lor iicxeis lo me worio s
baseball series has been roturned to
senders. It was learned today.
There was no mall sale of tickets
scheduled for this year's series, but
this fact did not prevent a flood of
letter applications. These have been
received by the thousand In both of
fices, much to the disgust of the of
ficial staff In both places, the only
thing to do being mailing back the
check with a note reltoratlng the con
is under which tickets will be sold.
Tho most common method was to re
turn them with a note saving that the
disposal of tickets was In the hands of
the national commission.
At the offices of the national com
mission Secretary Hcydler of the Na
tional League, was entirely burled by
a flood of applications. The only thing
ho could do was to annuonce that only
reserved seats would be placed on sale
on the date to bo announced through
the newspapers. It Is said this sale
will take place at tho Polo Grounds
next Monday to afford ticket specula
tors as little time as possible to dis
pose of tickets before tho series begins.
Boston Fans Lucky
In Drawing Seats
BOSTON, Oct. 3. Several hundred
Bostonlans awoke today to find they
were lucky ones whose application for
world's series reserved seats had been
favorably acted upon. All those who
received notices that they can buy re
served seats went to Fenway park at
9 o'clock to get the coveted pasteboards.
Similar notification will bo continued

BINGLES AND BUNTS
By Grantland Rice
Whether one leans toward Meyers and Wilson, of
tho Giants, or Carrlgan and Cady, of tho Red Sox, thero
will be plenty of class Intermingled with the' backs t tip!
ping end of this series quite enough to hold its 'own
with the reit of the retinue.
McQrawiwlll depend In the main upon his Mission
Indian, who- will operate under tho pen name of Chief
Meyers. The chief will use both bat and fountain pen
under this cog. Stahl will probably work Carrlgan and
Cady almost evenly, as Cady backstops for Wood's
pitching, and Mr. Wood is likely to be quite a busy
person before the final sunset drops athwart the final
game of the clash.
As the pitching was sized up as a
sition with Boston carrying the shade through tho bril
liancy of Wood, the catching should be upon a par
with any edgo favoring the stalwart skuddlng Itedman.
Carrlgan is one of the brainiest types of the catch
ing game. He Is a good, consistent batsman, a wonder
In working with his pitchers, with a shrewd far-seeing
pair of lamps which Burvcy the surrounding landscape
for every detail. He Isn't any wonder at the art of
pegging, but manages to stop any onslaught by quick
ness of thought and action.
Cady Is a better pegger than Carrlgan, a good hit
ter and a corking good catcher for a youngster. He
lacks nothing but the flame and fire of long-tested bat
tle. With Carrlgan he forms an active working mate
and tho two will protect the Red Sox end as well as Ira
Thomas cared for the Macklan guard last year.
On the other hand, the Giants have one of the catch
ing premiers of the game in Meyers. If wo wore pick
ing Jimmy Archer's running mate to frame up tho two
best backstoppers in the country. Meyers would be the
choice. The Indian can catch and ho can hit llko helen
blazes. He can hit any old time, but most of all in a
pinch. With Larry Doyle last season ho was the only
other Giant who reached the .300 class against tho flashy
pitching of Bonder, Coombs, and Plank but not even
this brilliant trio could put a curb upon his trusty mace,
which hammered the ball fore and aft through every
Meyers has not only been through the fire, but it is
upon an occasion like this that he arises to his greatest

spect he is more dangerous than either Carrlgan or
Wilson Is rated by many almost upon a par with the
Indian. He can hit and ho can catch, although not
quite as steady tn pegging as his oftcner-worked mate.
Wilson is likely to figure more as a pinch hitter, al
though ho may bo used to co-operate with Jeff Tcsrcau
before the series Is over.
While we figure tho Giants have the catching edge
through the batting ability of Meyers and Wilson, the
edge Is not thick enough to cheer over. But in a tight
series it should count.
Neither team Is likely to get on base often enough
to start any running amuck. Neither team could do
any running amuck upon the catching Used. Unless
there's an upset we fall to see where cither club can do
much moro pilfering than was done last year, where
each team stole but four bases in six games. There
has never been any great amount of base running done

the catchers used will bo as vital a factor as tho actual
catching where the rival class Is so nearly v ion a par.
MeyerB has been In poor shape for some time, but
haB rounded to nicely after a long rest, and will be able
to start at his best form. He 1b always bolter, after a
rt nnd Mrfirnw cxDccta him to bo ono of the main
gladiators of tho Giant array. In addition to catching
Tesreau in ono game, Wilson may fill out other con
tests toward tho close where Shafor is sent in to sprint
for tho Indian.
If the series was to be settled by the comparative
battory ability that Is of the pitching and the catching,
it should go to seven games. Where Wood should out
rank any Giant slabman, Meyers, on form, should have
the edgo on either Carrlgan or Cady from the viewpoint
of all around value and make an oven fight of it. For
no one knows, except National Lcaguo pitchers, how
dangorous this wily Callfornian Is when the pinch ar
rives and a lusty wallop will bring on untold damage.
