FENWAY PARK, BOSTON,
Oct. 9. —One of the most desper
ately contested games of the
world's series ended here this aft
ernoon in a tie game when dark
ness forced the closing of the
second contest in the world's
baseball championship contest be
tween the Giants and the Red
Sox. Three pitchers—Collinß,
Hall and Bedient —occupied the
slab in turn for the home team,
while the veteran Mathewson
bore the brunt of 11 innings of
desperate fighting, winding up
the afternoon's work by retiring
his last three opponents in order.
The Giants got up badly, put
ting Mathewson in a hole in the
first inning, when the Sox piled
up a three-run lead.
Stahl's men continued in front
until the eighth inning, when the
strain proved too much for Col
lins, and the Giant stick wield
erß forced in three runs, took
the lead for the first time and
COLLINS
Bent Collins to the bench.
The veteran Mathewson's vic
tory was short-lived, however, as
a double and a single In the Sox's
half put them on even terms
again. The ninth was a blank
for both sides, but in the tenth
the Giants went into the lead
with a margin of one run, which
the Sox promptly duplicated in
their half.
Neither scored in the eleventh,
and the umpires called the con
test and announced it would be
played off on this field tomor
row.

As the Giants appeared on the
field at 1:15 o'clock this after
noon the eyes of the Boston fans
were fastened on Christy Mathew
son. For Boston it was "Mathew
son or good night.' " The old
war horse came on the field with
head up and with easy stride. His
alert eyes quickly summed up the
vast expanse of the battle field
where any long hit meant either
three bases or a home run. The
field at Fenway park is much
deeper than that at the Polo
grounds.
The day dawned gray, with a
stiff wind sweeping down on the
field from the northwest. This
presaged cold weather.
The Boston speedboys began
practice work at noon.
The Boston fans were quiet but
conlldent. At 1:30 tltere were
large vacant spaces in the unre
served sections. The stands filled
slowly, the attendance of women
being particularly large.
McGraw sent Wiltze, Mathew
son and Marquard to the side
lines. On account of the raw
weather many expected McGraw.
would pitch Marquard.
An outfield sign announced that
"Thomas W. Lawson would give
$1,000 to the first player who
smashed a hit into 'The System'
Blate" —said slate being a 150
foot sign.
A band appeared in the grand
stand rousing the Boston fans up
to a high pitch of enthusiasm.
Jake Stahl received an ovation
from the fance.
Mayor Fitzgerald, wearing a
high silk hat, made the presenta
tion speech. Then Captain Wag
ner was presented with a silver
bat.
There were few vacant seats
when the game started.

Principals In Double Tragedy
Grace Hrooks and her former
lover, Kltnrr Fllmore. The woman
was killed last ni^hi in her home,
I HI- '- South I tit,, five shotH he
hit; fired into her body at close
range. Filmore suicided this
morning.
TAKES OWN
LIFE IN
HOTEL
(lU'LI/KTIX.)
l.liniirc Filmore, the -<•
year-old boy for wliom the
police have been searching
today, on suspicion that he
won the murderer of fiMM
Itrooks, at 121 V! 1-2 South
I St., Hhot himself through
the head this morning in his
room in the Iti'i'g hotel, 121 st
and Jefferson streets.
His dead Imkl.v hum found
this afternoon hy the proprie
tor.
Kilmore registered at the
hotel lust night, coming here
• lin'i ( from !'•■■ tl:iiiil.
The father, mother and
sister of the dead man are in
Turoina, having arrived hero
today. They knew nothing
of the shooting of Mrs.
lirookH, nor of their rela
tive's death.
Every avenue of escape for the
murderer of Grace Urooks, - aged
30 years, the woman who was
shot last night in her apartments,
1212H South I st., is today bo
ing closely watched by the |K>lice.
Klnier Fllinore, a former lover, is
being sought, as a suspect.
The (load unman left Filmorc
in Portland a year ;ik<i, it i- said,
and has I n living in this city
since that time with Lloyd
Mm hum. a li.ii'(i-nili r at the An
nex saloon. l-ilniiin- arrived In
Tacoma Monday nnd lorated his
formt'r sweetheart yesterday.
During the afternoon yesterday
persons living in the neighbor
hood of the house, the upper por
tion of which was occupied by
Bartender Fincham and Mrs.
Brooks, noticed a strange man
loitering about. Later this man
tried to enter the place by means
of a pass key through the front
door.
At about 6:20 o'clock last
evening, J. 0. Madden, who lives
in the house next door, heard five
shots fired in rapid succession in
the Fincham home. As he rushed
from his yard Into that of the
house adjoining, a man answer
ing closely the description of Fll
more was seen running rapidly
away In the darkness, shielding
iiis face and head with his arms.
Madden hurried up the stairs
which ascended to the upper part
of the house where the shots had
been fired and found Mrs.
Brooks lying face downward tn a
pool of blood, dead. Five empty
cartridges lay on the carpet.
The police instantly rushed a
party of d«tectives to the scene
and combed the district for the
murderer, but availed nothing.
It was found from the appear
ance of the room that the woman
bad been surprised, but that she
had put up a desperate battle for
her life. Harks on her hands indil
cate that she struck her murder
30 CENTS A MONTH.
*;r niasny severe blows before she
fell.
In running down every clue,
the police found a telegram sent
to Mrs. Brooks by her sister, Fay;
Van Govender, from Portland,
tolling her that l-'llmore wus on
his way to Tacoma. It was sent
on October 6, but was never re
ceived owing to a mistake In the
address. It reads:
"Elinor received letter. On his
way up there on 10 o'clock train,
lint don't know your address.
Think he will look up Mrs. Evans,
lie nice to him If he finds you,
but tell him the truth. Couldn't
keep him from going. Will writ©
tomorrow."
The Mrs. Evans mentioned Is
Lou BvutS, well known to the po«
li' <• as a habitue of the tenderloin
district. True to the dead wom
an's sifter's intuition, Filmore did
locate the Evans woman ana
aHkt'd for the address of Mra,
Brooks, but was refused informa
tion.
It is believed he located her
through a ruse, by calling the
Annex bar where Flnch&m worked
and asking for her address on the
pretense that it was a telegraph
company holding a message fon
Mrs. r.rooks.
Mr. and Mrs. Fllmore, father
and mother of the suspect, left
Portland during the latter part of
last weak, and it la thought ar«
in Tacoma at present, althougtt
the police know nothing of their
address. Whether their son ut
with them, or knows of theln
whereabouts is only a conjecture.
Among the dead woman's ef
fects today was found a postcard]
addressed to Mrs. Grace Monroe,
Parkhurut apartments, Portland.
It is thought this was the name
under which she lived in that
city.
Detective Captain John Fltz
gerald today Baid he had ever/
hope of catching Filmore. All
trains and boats are being watch
ed. Puyallup and Roy and other
neighborhood towns have been
notified, as well as Vancouver,
Victoria, Cle Blum, Portland and!
other points.
The remains of the dead woman
are at the Hoska-Buckley-Kins
mortuary, awaiting word from
her relatives in Portland.
The body shows that each of
the five bullets took effect, thre«
in the neck and head, two In the
body. They were fired at close
range, the powder scorching the
akin and setting fire to her
clothing.
H. A. McDonald, owner of the
house In which Fincham and bis
common-law wife lived, returned
today fr< m California, leaving
his wife there, and la cleaning
up the disordered apartments.
Neighbors say there never was
a more quiet woman than Mr*.
Brooks. None of them had seen
her more than twice alnce ah*
took the apartments.
