bit by Wagner in the ninth represent

stealing and another doubled up
COBB STELS HOME
The most sensational feature of the
game which was witnessed by more
than 30000 spectators was a steal
home by Cobb in the third inning
This was a remarkable and well timed
bit oT work and the entire Pittsburg
team and crowd were caught off their
guard It was on the first ball
pitched by Willis after he succeeded
Camnitz that the daring play was
made As soon as Willis started to
wind up Cobb started for the plate
and by a daring slide reached the base

DETROIT TIGERS CHAMPIONS OF THE AMERICAN LEAGUE
IN CLASH WITH THE PIRATES FOR WORLDS PENNANT
The Detroit Tigers champions of the American League entered the worlds championship series with muchmore confidence than they possessed
when they faced the Cubs last season = For one thing some of the weaker spots in the team have been mended since last year and the Pirates
havent got the Tigers bluffed as the Cubs had The repairs which have been made in the Tiger lineup have not only served the purpose of
mending the weak spots but have also Increased the chance of success against the National League by supplying a new lot of men who are not
afraid of their foes Tom Jones on first has batted better than Rossman though not up to the standard Rossman used to set and has fielded
better Delehanty on second is n o juvenile but has played good ball Ince he replaced Herman Schaefer an d is the kind of player who Is not to
be hoodooed by any opposition Mo riarity has been a great improvemen t on Bill Coughlin Bush has been a blessing to the team and has braced
it in every conceivable manner Taken as a whole the Tigers look far better than In 1908 The members of the Detroit team numbered in the
accompanying group and their positions are as follows 1 Tuthill train er 2 T Jones first base 3 Schmidt catcher 4 LelivelL pitcher 5 Gain r

THEY DESIRE THE PAVING EX
TENDED ON THE STREET FROM
PALAFOX TO TARRAGONA OW
ING IT TO BE A WHOLE
SALE DISTRICT ORDINANCE
TO BE INTRODUCED IN THE
CITY COUNCIL AT EARLY DATE
Property owners either in person
or by authorized proxy met in the of
fice of the mayor at noon yesterday
and talked over the prospect of hav
ing that portion of Government street
between Palafox and Tarragona pav
ed solidly up to the sidewalk linos
Three owners of property in the
block named were unrepresented but
It was believed they would offer no
objection once the matter was put
up to them The city paving plai
contemplated a fourfoot grass plot
on either side of the street but own
ers and occupants readily showed
that the block included really the
wholesale house business of the city
and by argument held that a grass
plot spaco would be more of a hind
rance than a desired convenience
BOND TRUSTEES THERE
The bond trustees wera all present
All three of those gentlemen who
are R M Bushnoll chairman John
A Merritt and C M Covington warn
much interested in the discussion but
they were averse to making a change
in the city paving plans Chairman
Bushnell said he would not agree 10
recommend a change in the orginljl
city plans but that if the interested
property owners saw fit to pay for the
extra paving work themselves h 3
could see no reason why a privi3
contract oould not foe made with the
contractor and tbtr consent tUtt
city be obtained to move back the
curbing If the sidewalK to sidewak
paving was done there the chairman
explained and the city was I
to pay for it the case would amount
to nothing more than that of takir
away allotted work from one or to
other blocks
AN ORDINANCE SUGGESTED
The chairmans reasons for not ap
proving a change In plans were clear
to all present and another proposi
tion was advanced John M Burrov i
who was extremely anxious to havo
the wide paving said that with three
exceptions he bad talked with every
property owner along that said street
and they had all agreed to tho changes
as desired He did not think it would
be a difficult matter at all to get thu
extra work paid for and threw oat
the suggestion that the citizens do
as suggested in the meetingthat of
drafting an ordinance to cover the
change In pavement width in the two
blocks named Alderman Kugloman
who was present and who was Inter
ested In the change said he would
introduce such In the council

It would probably mean cash pay

The water he says between

recedes drags it from shore By the
method proposed the material will be
checked in Its travel and collected
upon the beach which will gradually

the shore line out to deep water BR
thus banking up the beach the tido
line will be forced to recede from the
