BOSTON, Oot. 12,-Manhattan Iale
can now look forward to at least one
note of joyous cheer. Joe Wood is out
ot the way for a breathing spell and J.
Stahl has yet to show another winning
pitcher. Now If only a combination
earthquake, tidal wave, gun cotton
flare-up and volcanic eruption would
detonate beneath Mr. Wagner, the
Great White Way might turn oft tho
trickling tear and offer merry laughter
in Its place.
It's something to have Wood out ot
the .way. but It doesn't matter much
who pitches so long as a ball playing
centlpedo whirls Ills tenacles over the
field, and renders baiting null and nil by
blocking every egress. When Prof.
Keeler suggested that batsmen should
"Hit 'em where they ain't," he had evi
dently never seen Heinle Wagner at
work. Hitting 'em where Mr. Wagner
tln't Involves tho technical process of
hitting 'em out of tho lot or fouling 'em
back Into the stands. And even then
it would be a gamble.
The Battle in Boston.
The Red Sox obtained tho jump again,
but tho giants now have their main
charges left. Mathewson looks to be a
better bet than any alabman that Stahl
has outside ot Wood, and If the Old
Master can wrench oft today's battle
tha "Tale of the Two Cities" will bring
us to chapter (, all square, and tho tall
likelihood of nubo Marquard hooking
up with Smoky Joe back in New York.
There have been too many sudden
turns In this scries to figure anything
certain until the last clamp athloto
has perished in the last round of the
last game. It's anybody's scries yet,
for while Wood was tipped to have the
edge over any Giant pitcher Friday.
Mathewson or Marquard were equally
tipped to have the call over any con
tender BUM might have left.
It may be that J. Stahl can pick Col
lins or Bedlent In a winning mood, but
the Qlant defense has settled now Into
Its normal swing and with Mathewson
pitching there'll hardly be any array
of six runs piled up against his well
The Red Sox now carry the edge in
names won which Is considerable edge
at this stage of the Jubilee. But the
'lants undoubtedly carry the elge In
pitchers left for the next battle, If we
are to Judge by the dope alone and not
by some unexpected turn.
Stahl so far has been able to win
only with Wood and "Smokey Jo.i"
Is beginning to show the strain. He
was careening badly yesterday when
Heinle Wagner awung In behind him
with the greatest Infleld play any series
Taking no credit from Wood, If it
hadn't been for Wagner's super-brll-Ilant
work at short work bordering nn
the miraculous, the Qlant attack would
hat n nicked Joe for fit least twelve hits
and from three to flvo runs.
Wagner Some Name.
So If anv one tells you that there's
only one Wagner, meaning Honus, refer
hlni to Mcrklc, Fletcher, and Dcvore,
Mho, In turn whaled baso lilts over sec
ond where all three would have scored
runs, only to have a human flnsh cut
in. whirl out an extended mlt and save
the day. t
There may bo nothing In a name, as
our old college chum from Avon In
sists, but If we ever own a ball club
and a guv named Wagner applies for
a Job nt short, he can name his own
terms If beventy-slx years old, blind
In both eyes and bereft of one leg. Our
Idea of a regular ball club Is to have a
bloke named Wagner playing short.
Now that the teams liavo settled Into
steady form, playing safely and sanely
Mlth the old frenzy whipped out. it
gets back largely to tho pitching again.
Stahl, as we remarked before, has
shown one winner In Wood, Tesreau
has stumbled because Wood was stead
ier, but McCJraw has shown in Mathew
ron and Marnuaid a better pair than
any others from tho Red Sox squad.
Not True to Form.
As great a pitcher as Wood Is, Collins,
Bedlent, or O'Brien must be able to

win at least one game, and possibly
two. On the other wing of It, ttw
Glanta must beat Wood at some stage
of the game, and In behalf of "Smokey
Joe" we are wiling to state that he
has yet to pitch a game true to his
American League form.
He has won, but hs hasn't been at
his best. If Mathewson wins his battle.
Wood must show a surer flash of his
eld form to. upset Marquard, now that
tho Rube has tasted gore. In this
respect Marquard is a good deal like the
Nubian lion ot yore. Ono taste of goro
gives him "qulto an appetite," and he
Is a, much tougher cltlten to deal with
than If beaten.
Tho Rube .has tho same confidence
now which carried him along his recoid
run, and must bo counted as one of tho
vital factors of the series a mora dan
gerous man that either Mathewson or
Tesreau, who looked to be New York's
sole hope at the start ot the scries.
Unless the dope goes badly awry, Bos
ton will find this' 'wry-necked sldu
wheoler tho hardest man ot the melee to
Marquard confident and Marquard on
the run are entirely detached souls
Without a single thought In common.
And Marquard after the first start Is
far from being on the run.
That Red Sox Infield.
Prof. Mack displayed quite a cluster
of Infield talent when he entered the
world's series last fall, but nothing
of the typo shown by Stahl'a Inner set.
Tho Boston outfield was touted ria the
main hope ot the team, but It has fallen
to the Boston Infield. Wagner and
Yerkea leading, to push the red-hosed
troopers out In front. This Infield
quartet has run down ninety-four
chances out of ninety-six starts and the
two lono dobbles were excusable. And
out of tho ninety-four about thirty were
souf-llftlng episodes which figure large
ly In the final count.
The Giants hi.vo outhlt their rhul In
four out ot tho five gjrncs played, but
tho ranrlnir Dower ot Boston's Inilutd
defense has broken up moro than one
uiant assault on its way to victory.
And those who wonder why .McCiruw
left Fletcher In might obtain tho an
swer from the last two scores. He lias
not only driven In two of the last
three Giants runs made, but has cor
nered fifteen chances without a bobble
and six of the fifteen were smoking
shots where a break meant poignant
anguish to hit people's dream ot con
quest. Not forgetting that It was something
to come back after the depressing In
cidents of the first two games. Some
thing In the final essay that Is Just
a little beter hail winning a game or
winning a series.
Sir John Harrington Sees
First of the World's
NEW YORK, Oct. 12,-Slr John liar-J
rlngton, former British minister to
Abyssinia, arrived at New York on
an American visit Just In time to see
the first of the world championship
games, and will remain here for the '
conclusion of the series.
"The excitement here over these
games Is, after all, Just what we have
In London over a big soccer match,"
said Sir John. "But I rind a differ
ence between the way people go In for
sports hero and in England. Over heie
you make more of a business of your
sports. For Instance, In baseball, all
yi.tir players are professionals, who are
paid salaries to work at baseball, not to
VUy It. Some one was telling me that
f Cobb is to get 316,000 next season.
That Is extraordinary. Baseball play
ing Is more remunerative than many of
tho learned professions.
"Then I think you people over Hero
dc not go In to much for tho lovo of
a sport Itself as to win. You Insist
upon being first. I believe that with ui
we love sports more for their own sake
than for tho Idea of beating somebody
else at them."

Times' Wriftfr Barqs WonrJerful
Emotions of Strong, Brown.
f ed Giant,
By EDWARD LYELL FOX.
BOSTON, MaBS., Oct, 12. Thla la
a story of opportunity lost of won
dorful emotions, stirred for naught
a drama of slowly kindling anger
burned In vain, and tho charactor Is
Tesreau thick bodied, bulging
browed Tesreau, about' whom you
have heard and shall hoar more.
Now, had McOraw boon a forrero,
been a director ot roused men, the
story would be different. It would
compel a tale of bitter tumultuous,
grievance harassed to a purpose and
over brewing all. But McGraw Is
none or the ferrero skill, at turning
the raging soul Into an agency of
No Ferrero To Lead.
So was opportunity lost, and Just as
dark-skinned demons, red eyed, stum
bling over Spain a biasing torch lifted,
so did the burly Tesreau blink, stum
ble, and rave, but to no purpose. For
no ferrero came to lead him to employ
cunningly tho strange frenzy that oneo
ruling a certain kind of man renders
him mighty, all-conquering.
To me this was the Inner story of the
game, a story so remote as to be un
usually fascinating. The tense fighting
of the teams was obvious. The untir
ing onslaughts of the Olants against de
fense they could not break down was
apparent. The mnstcry of Boston, once
boyish Wood took command, was ex
pected, but the transition of Tesreau
from a stolid, sturdy automan to a
battery of nerves, more nnely strung
than Marquard's, that was different.
Tesreau 'is Cheered.
Also, being so It caught and held me
as nothing has done In a baseball park
since a day I remember when the In
domitable Jennings, by sheer person
ality alone, brought his Tigers from
utter rout to red victory, and so begins
a tale of what was what might hae
Dark, drifting clouds, damp with rain,
were rolling out ot the east as a man in
blue faced the grandstand and shouted
that Tesreau was to pitch. Then the
man darted away and the wide form of
Tesreau rose above thedugout, was mo
tionless a moment, bent down to hear
something McOraw was saying, and then
awung across the diamond with confi
dence. As ho went there began In back,
in the recesses ot the stand, a rattle of
hand-clapping, a sharp stacatto sound
like the growing rhythm ot a drum, and
Tesreau, knowing the good will that It
bore, feeling tho confidence that thou
sands felt In him, was glad. Smiling
happily, he sent the ball whirling to
ward the plate. It was good to be given
this chanco to relieve oneself, to Da nt
Boston after they had beaten him; a
chance, too, he thought, with the dark
day aiding him, making his speed more
deceptive, more puzzling to the bats
men. But now he saw Hooper, first
of the Red Legs, coming to the plate
and grinning as he came, for Hooper
had shouted something to the bench and
the Boston coacher on third was crying
It to the Olants.
Just Like Year Ago.
"Dark day like this a year ago, wasn't
117" chanted the coacher. "Just tho
same kind of a day when Baker put the
ball In your grandstand over there."
Tesreau, hearing this, laughed, to show
his confidence. A moment later, though,
Hooper pounded a hit past his feet, a
scornful hit that seemed to daro Tes
reau to stop It; sent tho ball skipping
far out to Snodgrcss In center field. But
at the sight of those red legs dancing
off first, tho sneer of Hooper's face, a
new personality came to the passive
young giant of the mountains, a slow
dawning of humiliation, ot the venge
ance that It merited.
Angry, he gripped the ball-fac:rt
Speaker Lewis drew back that thick
arm, again, again until the Inning done
lie let Ronton, scoreless take tho field.
So had a dash III his eyes, a quiver
ing ot muscles shown In his face. How

Tesreau Fought Hard.
Remember tlml, with Hooper and

FOR JOE WOOD
Thinks Red Sox Pitcher
, Didn't Pitch as Well as
PUT BALL ACROSS
ENTIRELY TOO MUCH
Washington Player, Writipg for
Tifnes, Tells Defects in
By WALTER J0HWS0N.
BOSTON, Oct. 12. When It bo
camo known thai Manager Jako
Stahl was going to send Joe Wood
back In against- tho Glonta yesterday
afternoon, many ot the fans who arc
making tho present worlds' series
between the Red Sox and Giants a
careful study, czprcaaod their doubt
aa to Joo'a ability to go back with
only a two-day's lay-off and bring
back the Red Sox to a second vic
tory. .On Tuesday Joe pitched such a
clever and effective game that tho
fana believed ho would not come
back and twirl auch unsolvablo ball.
Wood was hit harder yesterday than
he was In the flrat ciimo of the
series, but bis wonderful defense
played acnsatlonal ball behind him
and pulled him out of many holes.
Had "Stuff" on Ball.
Joe had a lot of "stuff" on the ball,
but there was not tho hop to the fist
one which had the Olants swinging their
head j oft on Tuesday, and he ut the
ball across the rubber altogether too
much. In the second Inning he struck
out Murray on three pitched balls nnd
had Merkle two strikes and no balls,
and when ho put the next ball across
the Inside corner the Olants' flist Back
er "cooked" It Into right field for a
hit. He should have driven Merkle
away from the plate or pitched out so
as to get him to go after & bad ball.
lienor was in a hole between tno
strikes and no balls when he singled C
past wagner in tue sevenin, anq ne
scored the only New York run on
Fletcher's double to right. During the
latter part of the game Wood seemed
to lose his curve, but the tunm backtd
him up in such fine style that he came
home a 3-to-l winner.
Not a Base .on Balls.
Joe sent eight men down on strikes,
and did not Issue a base on balls, and
It was his single to right in the ninth
that took all the tight out of New York,
for it scored Oardner with, ithe Red
Sox's third run.
Cady gave Wood grand support be
hind the bat, and It waa his words ot
.encouragement that kept Joe steady
when the Olants threatened to score.
Cady used especially fin Judgment on
the Indian. Meyers never has been able,
to hit a low curve on the outside, and
with Herzog on first In the fifth and
only one man out, Cady called for
Wood to stick three In the Indian's al
ley, and the Redskin went back to
It was Cady's blocking the plate that
stopped the Olants from tlclng the
scora in the seventh inning, although
the bulk of the credit for the execu
tion ot the play belongs to Steve
Yerkes. the Red 8ox second baseman.
After Fletcher had scored Herzog In
this Inning with a double to right,
Harry McCormlck, a clever pinch hitter,
was sent In to bat for Jeff Tesreau.
and responded by driving the ball
through the box, and, from all appear
ances. It looked as though Speaker was
to be the next player to handle the
fast-traveling sphere, but Yerkes went
over to second and knocked the ball
d0W"' What Steve Yerkes Did.
Fletcher was Just rounding third a's
Steve picked up the pill, and McGraw,
who was coaching at third, sent
Fletcher home, probably figurine; that
Yerkea would try to hurry his throw
and wnilld neff the ball wild. McOraw
picked out the wrong man for his dream
of a heave Into the grandstand, for
there Is no steadier or more confident
man playing than Steve Yerkes. When
Yerkes saw that Fletcher was off for
tho plate, he set himself and made a
perfect throw to big Cady, who had the
goal completely covered. Fletcher made
a drive for the plate, but he struck the
big catcher and bounced five feet nut
to one side of the rubber and the day
Jeff Tesreau was hit hard during the
first part of the game, but when he
finally got going he had a lot of "stuff"
on the ball. During the last three In
nings that he worked only nine Red
Sox batters faced him, and from tho
form he was displaying they would not
have been able to put across another
run on him. He was very unfortunate
tn uncork a wild pitch with a man on
third in the second Inning, for the Red
Sox scored their first run on tho mis
cue. It was Just another cam of a
pitcher who has not absolute control
of a spltter going wild at a critical mo
ment, Tesreau kept his spltter low, and by
doing so completely fooled many of tho
Boston batters. Wagner and Stahl took
the third strlkrt, both of which were
low-breaking spltballs, without remov
Ins1 their bats off their shoulders.
Leon Ames hod a great break to ills
curve, but he was wild and the Red
Box madn him nltch throuch. with the
result that when they got him In the I
hole they hit, ana mi naro. A iouuio
and two singles were made off Ames
during his short stay on the mound.
Wagner and Fltcher played sensational
ball all afternoon. Fletcher giahhcd
off three put-outs und six hard assists,,
whllo Wagner's great ground-covering
killed three sure hits which would liuvn
resutled In runs going across the rubber.
Steve was very busy, and handled
himself In ills usual nonchalant style.
Eckendorf, of Technical High
School, went through Army and
Navy rrep's line for a touchdown,
thereby winning the game by 6 tu 3.
