NEW YORK. Oct S—New Tork,
assisted by most of the United
Bit—tooj took a day off to sec
the bean eaters from Boston
bake the Giants a dry and crisp brown
on the Hon. John McGraw'- own home
diamond. Tonight New Yorkers of full
size and the promise of lusty youth are
- visions of myriad Red Sox, .Take
Stabla and Speakers, all begrinned—
when they «***•_ not just awakened and
shaking: the flat - of Harlem with wild"
Indian whoops begotten by dreams of
tbe games still to come.
Before the greatest crowd ever
brought together to witness play be
tween the two teams pitted against
ea<h other la any of the world's pas
the nine from the Hub cap
tured the first of the world's series.
II was the world*- greatest game,
payed by the worlds gamest men on
the greatest playground of mankind —
the diamond of the big Brush stadium
at the polo grounds.
The First World's Series
When in that first of the world's
s-ries, In the early dawn of myt'.'icai
history, the nimble lad from Athens
found the vulnerable heel of Hector and
scored for the visitors at Troy, the poet
Homer records that there was some ex
w ement The bard was blind: his mis
ke was probably due to the Chian
sands or to his natural anxiety to earn
bis retainer as press agent to Ulysses.
There was any excitement at
Troy. There never was any real excite
ent until today, and right here under
c reinforced concrete firmament of
New York. No doubt the Greeks and
Trojans did their best; but they hadn't
game, they hadn't the spirit of the
American. They missed by some tens
of centuries the privilege of living.
Over forty thousand frenzied human
beings—mainly men, but sprinkled here
and there by a goodly galaxy of woman
hood, all the way from grandma grades
to broilers in their bravest of hats and
frocks —saw Devore in the second half
of the third inning get the first base on
balls and a few minutes later score for
the Giants on Murray's single to center.
They were the elite and they yelled.
Outside the Polo ground—in banked
crowds blocking the streets, sitting
cross legged on or under the main tops
of arc light poles, lining the roof gar
dens of tall apartment houses, hanging
on like human flies to any point of
vantage which gave the slightest peep
at the space where the honors of the
ball world were being contested —
counties, other thousands drank in the
music of maddening joy.
Sure They Yelled!
And they yelled. Down in Park row,
along Broadway and the great avenues
from the north to south of Manhattan
. and on across the water to the
fields of Flatbush and the seagirt strand
of forgotten Coney, the crowds were
mj-f- thered.
The bulletins boards were scanned
as if life depended on the turn of the
recording disks and the yells of the
tatic elite multiplied beyond the
vers of human calculation, the grasp
of the most gigantic intellect.
No playground ever made by men
would have found room for a tithe of
the teeming thousands who sought
seats at the ball stadium today—in
vain.
Long before the chimes of last mid
night eager fans began to line up in
tne long wait for seats. Around 2
o'clock i» <- ne morning a human wall
buttressed the Brush wall. It was a.
cold, crisp October night in New York;
no ram. a clear sky, but a biting, pierc
ing wind ate through the warmest
clothing and froze the blood of the most
ardent and robust.
That there was not a sign of the
grouch, no murmurings, mutterings or
grimaces against chilliness of Jupe
Pluve, spoke volumes for the innate,
pent up excitement which kept antici
pation on the oven top, defying ele
ments, laughing at sleep and the fatigue
of remaining for hours like a lay figure,
inactive.
And the absence of fighting, scuffling
f!r boodlumism of any kind was an eye
!>ener to the foreign spectators of this
orange scene. The like was never seen
in E'.irop<*-.

S. P. CUTS RATES
DOWN PENINSULA
Proposed Reduction Satisfies
San Mateo Association and
Will Begin November 1
Reasonable reduction in the peninsula
commutation rates on the Southern Pa
cific have at last been made by the com
pany and accepted by the San Mateo
Development association, bringing to an
end a fight which extended over several
years. The culmination of the fight was
brought about by an appeal August 28
to the railroad commission by residents
of San Mateo and Palo Alto. At this
time suits were instituted against the
railroad by the two committees. The
officials of the company asked for a con
tinuance of 60 days, promising that
within this time a proposition of re
duced rates would be presented.
Several conferences were held between
the railroad officials and committees
from the two districts, with the result
of new rates being submitted last week
'for consideration of the peninsula com
| mittees. These rates have been accepted
jby the committees adjusting the cases
■ and wiping them from *lihe railroad cc-m
--!mlssion'B calendar.
The compromise of the railroad com
pany Is a material reduction in com
mutation rates, reducing the San Mateo
commutation from $6 flat to $5.35 for
daily and $4.85 for weekday commuta
tion. Other material reductions in
monthly commutation fares are made
for all intermediate points between
San Francisco and San Jose. Besides
this there are reductions in two day
round trips and Sunday excursion fares.
A detailed statement explaining the
reductions was issued yesterday by
Charles S. Fee, general passenger
agent of the Southern Pacific. Fee's
statement follows:
"The matter of commutation fares
between San Francisco and points with
in the peninsula suburban zone in the
Santa Clara valley, which include San
Joso and Los Gatos, has been adjusted
to the satisfaction of those interested.
"When the subject was taken up a
few weeks ago it was the feeling
parties mainly interested were not very
far epart, and results have so proved.
"The Southern Pacific' voluntarily of
fered certain reductions, which have
been accepted and will become effective
about November 1 next.
"These reductions run to a majority
of all the commutation fares, and also
embrace as new features 'two day'
round trip fares, and to points at all

General Outbreak of Hostilities Expected With

> _,
Oct. B—A general conflagration in the Balkans is expected by officials here within 48 hours. Monte-
L__# negro's declaration of war against Turkey, delivered to the porte early today, is regarded merely as the
beginning. It is believed that the other units in the Balkan coalition will follow suit as soon as the mobili
zatiou of armies is complete. There is only a faint hope that the representations of the powers will avert
general hostilities. Montenegro's move is considered in Paris to be part of a prearranged plan. It is asserted
that Greece was first selected by the Balkan confederation to force the issue and inaugurate the war. This

BURLINGAME, Oct. S.—Accused of
stealing 50 cents by her mother, Mrs.
Anna Schultz, a prominent socialist,
14 year old Marian Schultz, one of the
candidates' for queen of the coming
Burlingame Women's club street fair
and carnival, ended the quarrel this
morning by taking her father's re
volver and shooting herself in the
right side. Her conditibn is serious.
The girl's father is Henry W. Schultz
of Clarendon road, Burlingame, con
nected with a San Francisco lumber
ing concern. The girl attends the
public schools of this city.
After her mother accused her of
the theft, Marian Schultz rushed into
her father's room and seized his re
caliber revolver. Then she ran into
the bathroom and shot herself, her
mother finding her on the floor when
she rushed in on hearing the shot.
Dr. A, L. Offield removed the girl
to the Red Cross hospital In San
Mateo in his automobile, and an X ray
photograph to locate the bullet was
taken. Until this is developed noth
ing definite can be learned, but' It was
found that the bullet had struck the
hip bone, and that from there It ranged
downward to the right thigh.

FORT SMITH, Ark., Oct. B.—Rock Isl

a dispatch frpm the station agent of the
road at Halleyville, Okla. The safes in
the express car were dymuuite-i.
easily could have been done by
Greece seating in the Greek parlia
ment the deputies from Crete, which
was certain to prove a 'casus belli to
Turkey.
Greece, however, declined to accept
responsibility for starting the fllrae.
Long Standing Quarrel
Montenegro then was picked. She
had a long standing quarrel with
j Turkey over the boundary question,
f and Turkey's refusal, to grant satis
; faction was seized upon as justihea
| tion for Montenegro's resort to arms.
It is not doubted that though cooler
heads in Bulgaria have been against
the war from the start, popular ex
citement is at such a high pitch that
that country will be driven to war to
satisfy public opinion.
In the face of intervention, every
fiber of energy will be exerted by the
great powers to prevent the war flame
from ingulfing P_urope.
All depends on the attitude of Aus
tria, which, according to late advices,
has mobilized four army corps—in
Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina and
southern Hungary—and stands ready
to occupy the Sanjak of Novlpazar
should this coveted strategic territory
be menaced by the Servians* and "Mon

Russia and Austria Friendly
Despite Russian sympathy- for their
Slav brethren of the Balkans, whose
political welfare Russia has fostered,
no complications are expected between
Russia and Austria and both these na
tions have assured the powers of their
determination not to be drawn Into any
Balkan imbroglio.
Official circles in France greatly re
gret the criticism of certain French
newspapers that Great Britain's slow
ness in agreeing to the phraseology of
the note has retarded the representa
tions of the powers. The criticism, it
is said, does not represent the official
French view. It is pointed out that
Isuch criticism is liable to cause a false
impression abroad and that it has
furnished ammunition for an attack
by the German press on Great Britain.
The real story of how the Balkan
powers forestalled and outwitted Euro
pean intervention is told in the* official
advices from Cettinje.
The Austrian and represen
tatives presented the note In the name
of the powers at 11 o'clock In the morn
ing, warning the Balkan states against
war, but two and a half hours earlier
the Montenegrin charge d'affaires bad
handed bis passports to the Ottoman
government.
Thus the Montenegrin cabinet was
in a position to say that the represen-
tations of the powers came too late,
a rupture of diplomatic relations hay-
ing already occurred.
The note of the powers follows: '

SUPPOSED CHIEF OF
SMUGGLERS TAKEN
Sloop Alert, Identified as Much
Sought Neptune, Captured
With Skipper
The weather lookout at Point Reyes
station flashed information yesterday
to the local customs officials that a
strange fishing craft was cruising
southward from Drake's hay, resulting
In the pursuit and capture of the
Chinese coolie and opium smuggling
sloop Neptune and the arrest of "Cap
tain" John Oosterhuis. The Neptune
was companion boat to the Samson 11,
which landed 60 Chinese in the Oak-
land estuary Sunday night and escaped
to sea Monday morning amid a fusil
lade of bullets. Unseen by the Inspect
ors the Neptune had made Its escape
the same morning and, skimming up to
Drakes bay. Captain Oosterhuis went
into anchorage, and, with the aid of
the seaman, Andrew Basile, arrested
with him, painted out the incriminating
name, "Neptune of San Diego,"' and
substituted the innocent title, "Alert
of Antioch."
Aided Banker's Escape
Oosterhuis, a brother of Captain
Henry Oosterhuis, well known in the
lumber trade, came under the notice
of the federal inspectors two years
ago as part owner of the power
schooner Kate. In. October, IDIO, he
aided the escape of Wilson B. Evans,
the defaulting banker of lajs Angeles.
Evans was picked up by the Kate from
the lonely Santa Rosa island, off the
Santa Barbara channel, and transported
to Acapuleo. With him he carried
$11,000 in gold stolen from the Day
and Night bank of Los Angeles, of
which he had been an officer. Evans
was captured while landing at Aca
puleo, but Oosterhuis succeeded In
evading the law. Adolph Adolphson,
partner of Oosterhuis, handled the craft
during the trip.
Alarm Sent Out
With the information from San Diego
concerning the Samson II the local im
migration officials received word that
the power sloop Neptune was accom
panying it and had probably 20 Chinese
on board. Both boats left San Diego
on the 28th of last month. According
"to the information of the Immigration
officials, the Chinese were picked up
at Santa Rosa island and thence taken
north. Immigration inspectors were

Welliver Story Straightened
MacVeagh also testified that he did
not recall an alleged conversation be
tween J. P. Morgan and E. H. Harriman
in 1901 about republican campaign
funds. Charles Edward Russell, so
cialist candidate for governor of New
York, and J. C. Welliver, a writer, told
their versions of the story yesterday. It
was substantially that MacVeagh had
been present in Morgan's office when
such a conversation took place.
*T never saw Mr. Morgan use the
telephone or knew of his being called
to the phone,'* he said.
Morgan had never conversed with
him on the subject of campaign con
tributions. MacVeagh said he did not
wish to say he had not given Welliver
some basis for his story.
"I may have called on Mr. Morgan on
the day I have in mind,'' said Mac-
