GIANTS WIN THEIR
FIRST GAME, 2 TO 1
Little Devore Snatches Victory from
the Red Sox by Spearing a Long
Hit in the Ninth.
GARDNER BATTED IN THE
ONLY RUN FOR BOSTON
Would Have Scored but for Coaching That Kept
Him on Second Marquard Carries Off Hon
ors in Battle with O'Brien Record
Crowd Thrilled by Brilliant Plays.
IloBton, Oct. 10.
The Now York Nationals ovorcame
the Boston Americans to-day by n
core of 2 to 1, tn the third gamo ot
tho world's baseball chamiilonHhlp ser
ies. Each club now has won n victory,
tho second game havInK ended In a tie.
Nearly 3d, 000 persons witnessed the
pitchers' battle H which tho Giant's'
Joft-hander, "Rube" Marquard opposed
tho lied Sox moist ball moundsman,
"Buck" O'Brien, and Marquard car
rlod off the honors.
Little Josh Devore was the hero of
tho day. The midget right fielder made
a catch that snatched seeming vic
tory from tho Bostons and sent them
down to defeat. The Itex Sox made a
desperate rally In the ninth and there
were men on socond and th'rd and
two out when Cady came to the bat.
The Boston catcher sent a terrific
drive between right and center and
Devore was off with the crack of the
bat. The crowd cheered, for the Red
Sox runners were on tho way home
and victory seemed down. But Devore,
speeding after the ball, speared It
with his gloved hand on the dead run,
ending the game.
MarquarJ was a puzzle to the Red
Sox. His fast ball sped over the
plate with the swish of a rawhide
lash, and his curves were under good
control. He gavo only ono base on
balls. In only one Inning .lid tae Rod
Sox have Marquard in trouble and
that was In the thrilling ninth when
Boston made Its last stand and sent
one run over the plate. Tho Giants'
boxman did not allow the Red Sox
batters to garner more than one hit
Jn any Inning until the final rally.
"Buck" O'Brien held New York to
six hits, but three of these were- male
when they counted for runs. O'Brien
found himself In difficulty In t-tie see
on! when Murray led off with a
double, which resulted in a run on a
Sacrifice hit and a sacrifice fly, aid

prevent him In New York's half of the
ninth Inning from racing over toward the
temporary fence and taking Fletcher's
drive, labelled for three bases. Then,
wheeling quickly, Speaker threw to Stahl
md doubled the Indian Meyers, who was
rounding third In the belief that the ball
bad gone to the back fence.
HERZOG COACHED MARQUARD.
Herzog's rapid-fire coaching of Mar
quard and the Giants' Infield played no
unimportant part In New York's defense.
The Giants' third base guardian shouted
constant encouragement to Marquard for
every ball pitched and when he was not
directing his coaching toward the pitch
ers' box, he was keeping the Giants' In
field keyed up to fighting pitch, llerzog
brought Murray home on a sacrifice fly In
the second and ho started the trouble for
the Red Sox In the fifth by slashing nut
i two-bagger and ."coring a few minutes
later on a hit.
There were nine strike out victims to
day. O'Brien funned twice and Hooper,
Yerkes, Wagner, Ball, Devore, Merkle
and Meyers once each. Three bases were
stolen In the game on3 each by WaRner,
Devore and Fletcher.

observed the centennial of tho great war
meeting of October 13, 1812.

Dr. Guy Potter Benton of tho University
of Vermont was represented by Prof. 8.
F. Emerson of the faculty, who said in
"In these days war Is discredited. The
war spirit rests under a stigma. It re
quires no little, courage tj appear In de
fense of military budgets and naval ap
propriation. Yet It Is Impossible to shut
one's oyes to tho benefits of war.
"In tho scheme of things, war Is that
extraordinary and super-organic f'.rce
which accelerates natural processes and
achieves in a brief period esults which
In the normal course of events might oc
cupy centuries. War Is a great social
precipitator. The goal may not have been
attained but to have set It forth aH the
ultimate objective Is of greatest Im
portance for conscious development.
"The War of the American Revolution
had for Its goal American Independence.
It would have come doubtless, perhaps
peaceably, but only after an Indefinite
period. Oppression and concession might
have reproduced In the colonics the un
wholesome temper of Ireland and fettered
national resources In their development
rs those of that country have been fet
tered. "War foreshortens chronological per
spective. It quickens the pace of the
marching races. It releases latent social
agencies of marvelous possibilities. It Is
a social explosive, dangerous, but useful.
AVnr Is destructive. It appeals to force
rather than to reason. It extols the brute
in man. That must be admitted. War Is
capable of great destruction. Dynamite
may be used to blow up a printing prc.s
or open copper mines. So may art and
literature be perverted to the vilest uses.
The brute In man may be trained to fol
low the highest spiritual development.
Are there not social developments which
ought to be destroyed and upon the de
rtruetlon of which progress depends?
"Can the most supersensitive social
reformer regret the destruction of the
Spanish Armada or the French fleet at
Trafalgar. War Is no less constructive.
It stimulates the organizing capacity of
the race to a xtraordlnary degree. It
government by discussion Is the crown
ing glory of the modern state, we must
remember discussion began In the ramp
and primitive applause was the crash
of spear". War has a noble mission of
go einmetilnl oi ganlzatlon. It unifies
the people, without which unity the
bonds of law are like ropes of sand.
"Tho war of 1M2 Is regarded by many
as an occasion for apology, it did not
extend out possessions by a foot and
placed upon us a heavy debt. That truth
ful appraisal Is not Just, however. War
disclosed to ourselves our distinctive
capabilities and significant limitations.
It sobered us and exploded visions of
conquest. H biouglit to recognition the
necessity of a stiong central govern
ment, the exponent of an expanding
social r-splration of a people singularly
fltt'cl to advance society."

Devore bounced a dilve off Wood's ankle

when Stahl reached 'lrst on a field's

A New York boy broke the hearts of
the Giant partisans. f!c is Heine Wagner,
the Red Pox short stop, whoso plays to
day lobbed the Giants of threo hits. Two
of his stops of smashes over second
were made with ono hand on tho dead
run. Then half turning, he snapped his
throws to first base abend ot tho runners

DEVORE OUT BY INCHES.
With one run needed to tie In tho eighth
Devore Inshed a grounder past Wood.
Thousands cheered as tho ball sped by

start for the final rally. Wagner raced
over tho bag, scooped the ball with his
gloved hand and snapped the ball to
llrst without recovering Ills balanco. Tho
fleet Devore was out by Indies.
Yerkes and Fletcher also starred In
fielding plays, while Murray robbed
Hooper of a three-base hit at the be
ginning of the fifth. Running back to the
concrete wall the Giant right fielder
leaped into tho air and clutched the ball
with his gloved hand.
Tesreau did not get Into Ills pitching
stride until the Red Rox had mado two
runs. After that he tightened up and In
the llfth, sixtli and seventh Innings
turned the Bostons back In one, two.

taken out only to allow a pinch hlttor
to bat for him.
There wcru 13 strike outs during the
