(Contlnned from page one.)
I'mlv bv n ood throw tut him off. The
Indian started toward third, and Wagnci
who took Cady's throw, shot it t
Gardner. The latter dropped It and the
chief slid Into the bag safe. Fletcher In
the meantime had dashed to second. In
tho play at third Gardner slightly hurt
his hand. Despite the mlsplay ncoient
cpt hln head and Mnthewson ended tho
Inning by flying out to Speaker, leaving
two New York runners on the bags,
FIRST PASS IN 20 INNINGS.
In the Red Sox second InnlnK Mathew
kon spoiled his perfect record for control
by giving Gardner a base on balls. He
had pitched 20 Innings without giving a
pass In the series up to that time. Stan
forced Gardner at Becond, Doyle to
Fletchor. Wagner smashed a single to
left field and Utah! advanced to second.
With two men on the bases and one out,
all the New Tork pitchers began warming
tip, but their work was unnecessary aa
Cady itnt a high fly to Mcrkle and lie
dlent Mt th first bn.ll pitched and waa out
t ftret, Doyle to Merttle.
The Giants broke Into the run column
to the third Inning. Deyore waited and
received a naaa. Doyle -went out, Gardner
to 0tahl, Deror taking second. Bnodgra
flsovnded cat to fltahl, unaastated and
tfwron prlatad to third. Play waa mis
pmfaA moment until Manager MoQraw
had ffeilahod a little tailoring, patching
up a bore In Devore'a trousers with a
pin, while a world of baseball en
thaalMta waited breathlessly to 1mm
whether Deror would finally score. Then
up oaace "Red" Murray, who smashed
tercaflo djtra to left center field. Tho
peedy Speaker waa off at the crack of
.the bat and after a hard sprint waa Just
able to touch the ball with his fingers.
Dor ore trotted home with the first run
and Murray was oil aecond base when the
ban waa returned to the hilled. Merkle
ended the inning by grounding out, "Wag
ner to BtatO.
The American League champions went
out In order in their half of the third
and were then behind New York with
the innioga ern. Hooper sent a weak
groander to Doyle, who tossed him out
at flrat Terltea chopped a grounder at
aBithewaon and was also thrown out
Speaker struck oat.
HBRZOG DIES ON THIRD.
Herzog began the Giants' fourth Inning
aiurolclouuly wfth a slashing drive to
left field that rolled up the "alloy" be
tween two stand in left field. He made
a great slide Into third baae before the
ball could be returned but be was sent
back to second on a ground rule which
allowed but two bases. Herzog took third
on Meyers" sacrifice, the Indian going
out, Gardner to Stahl. With Herzog on
third there was a nervous tension among
the fans as Fletcher tried to score his
team mate, but the best he could do was
.o lift a high fly to Gardner. Mathewson
ralseo a long ny to iiooper ana tn
Inning wsa over.
Hut three men faced Matty In the
fourth Inning. Lewis waa an easy out,
Fletcher to Merkle. Gardner hit to deep
center field, and when he saw Snodgrass
could not hold the ball after a alird run th
Red Sox player tried to stretch his hit
into a three-bagger, but was thrown out
on a quick return of the ball, Snodgras
to Doyle to Herzog.
"Hard luck" shouted Red Sox rooters
as Boston's thlrd-sacker brushed the dirt
off his trousers and walked to the bench
Stahl struck out.
The fifth inning brought more ezcdte
ment but no score. Devore led off for
New York with an Infield hit that was
deflected when It hit Bedlent on the leg,
but the tittle New Yorker was out when
Cady flajrgad him trying to steal. Wag
,.ier taking the throw,
GREATEST CATCH OF SERIES.
The greatest outfield catch of the series
waa then made by Hooper, who caught
Doyle'e tag drive against the fence In
deep right field. Ha made a desperate
run for the ball and reached It Just as It
ww going ever the three-foot barrier into
the crowd for a home run. Snodgrass
lined a single to oenter and was left on
first when Murray put up a high foul
fly to Cady.
There waa no cheering among the Red
Box rooter in Boston's half of the fifth
Inting, aa only three batters faced the
muudcrful Mathewson, the side going out
on three pitched balls. Murray backed
out to the left field fence to get Wagner's
fly, and he came running In and easily
caught Cody's, line drive. Bedlent was
the third out, hitting the first ball pitch
For New Tork In th sixth Inning, Mer
kle put up a fly to Hooper. Herzog
rounded to Wagner, whose poor throw
was neatly picked up by "Jake" Stahl
and the runner was out. Meyers received
a base on balls, and wax left on first base
when Fletcher struck out.
The game waa more than half over
and the Bed Sox rooters frantically
Shouted for run. Hooper sent up a pop
fly to Merkle and the drooping spirits of
the Red Sox crowd were revived when
Stakes got a lucky single back of second
pose, lie tried to pull away from the
ball and In doing so his bat struck It.
Neither Snodgrass nor Doyle apparently
saw the ball, as neither of them started
after It until too late. Speaker was given
base on balls and was forced at second
iy Lewis, Fletcher making the out, and
Ycrkes taking third.
OLD TRICK CATCHES VERKES.
Here a conference was held by Muthew
ion, Meyers, Doyle, Herzog and Merkle
Hid the result of It was the old trick of
the catcher shooting tho ball to thu
pitcher on an attempted double steal.
Mathewson pitched a wide ball to Gardner
nd Lewis and Yerkes fell Into tho trap.
Lewis made a dash for second and Yerkeu
thinking Meyers was going to throw the
ball to the middle bag started to leave
third. Tho Indian, however, shot tho ball
to Mathewson, who snapped It to Herzog
and Yerkes wan caught trying to return
to third base.
Mathewson, the Giants' lint batter up
In the seventh Inning, sent up a high
foul and Stahl muffed It, costing him an
error, Mathowson then singled to centur
tnd was forced at second when Devora
tried to sacrifice, Bedlent getting the
bunt and tossing It to Wagner. Doyle
filed to Wagner. Devore stole second
BnodgrusH ended tho Inning by ground
tag out, Gardner to Btaiil,
The Red Sox opened the soventh In
vhlch they tied tho scoro by Gardner
lying out to Snodgrns., Stahl planted thu
all In left field for a single, Murray
nodgraas and Fletcher bulking each
other In trying to get the fly. The Sox
malinger moved down to second when
Wagner was given u base on balls. It
was up to Cady to do something, but tho
home rooterjt groaned when he popped a
fly Into the walling hands of Fletcher.
1 1 ..m'llf Mnti . tin ttltnr for lludlelit. let a
couple uf lulls go by him, and then hu
opened his shouldeis on the next pitch
and slummed the ball down the left Held
Iwisu line for two bases, and Stahl eomo
homo with tho tying run amid great ex
citement. Wngner took third on the play.
Hooper tried hard to bring Wagner homo
but lie Hied out to Snodgrass.
WOOD GOES IN TO PITCH.
"Smoky Joe" Wood was given a royal
reception when ho went Into the pitching
box for Boston In the eighth Inning. Mur
ray rolled out to Stahl, unassisted, and
Merkle was out, Yerkes to Stahl. Herzog
not the first hit off "Smoky Joe" when he
singled to right. Meyers ended the In
ning by grounding out, Yerkes to Stahl.
Huston's burly hitters came up In the
second half of the eighth but they wore
unable to bring home the odd run. Yerkes
dropped a grounder III front of Mattowson
which the New York pitcher deflected
nnd Herzog scooped up the ball and got
the Red Sox runner at llrst. Speaker was
tho second out, Doyle to Merkle, and
Lewis ended thu Inning by grounding out,
letchcr to Mcrkle.
When the ninth Inning began McGraw

McCormlck, to bat for Fletcher, but ho

tively canvassing among the members
for two days, seeking support for Mr.
This is the first time since his sec
ond Incumbency of his present office
that a candidate has been presented
against .Mr. Stone. The chief argu
ment of hln opponent Is that Mr. Stone
Is opposed to the present normal
schools and that he takes too large
an Interest in politics.
Mr. Stones supporters point to the
Mrong efforts he has made to raise the
btandard of education In Vermont, nnd
the Improvement of literacy under his
administration as evidences of his effi
ciency. They also point out that h has
been the ilrm friend of the rural schools
and has ln-nt his energies to Improving
their status, and toward making them
more responsive to the needs of the com
munities lu which they are situated.
The opposition does not appear to nc
making great headway, nnd Is likely to
have Its strongest support In Windsor
and Orleans counties.
It had been expected previous to the
opening of the n,.n.son that some new
candidate for serge.int-at-arms might be
brought forward, as Frank T. Parsons,
the present Incumbent, Is an appolnteellll
lug out an unexpired term instead of a
regularly elected official. Hut the evi
dences of his efficiency have been so
plainly seen by the members since their
arrival here, and so many Improvements
have been made In conditions about the
Stato Housu that no one has had the
temerity tn propose any other candidate
for the position.
