CUBS ON SHORT END OF BETTING
ATHLETICS ARE NOW
GONGEOED TO BE
THE NEXT CHIPS
Those crazy kid Atheltics seem to be upsetting all the
dope of the sport writers and making a runaway thing of
the world series. There were plenty of people who fig
ured that Connie Mack's youngsters would get away with
the series, but none of them believed that the young Amer
icona league champs would hand it to the Cubs in such
a startling manner.
Who would ever have thought that the Phillies would
knock such seasoned veterans as Orvie Overall and Mor
decai Brown out of the box I
Yet that's the way the Mack men are starting things,
and with a 4 to 1 victory yesterday, and the 9 to 3 thing
to their credit today it begins to look as though the Ath
letics have the series cinched before it is more than well
It is only fair to believe that tire Cubs will take one or
more of the games, probably the first two at home, but
present indications are that youth will tell and the Ameri
can league youngsters will be returned world's champs.
That this is the general concensus of opinion today is
evidenced by the fact that right in the Cubs' home town,
the most rabid of fans are seeking odds against the Chi
cago favorites, for when the "bugs" hunt odds on their
own team, it's mighty good evidence that they are figuring
them to loose, and are merely playing the long chance for

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18.—Before a crowd of 25,000
rooting ball-crazed fanatics, Connie Mack's Philadelphia
Athletics this afternoon smothered Chance's Cubs by a
score of 9 to 3.
The American league leaders led throughout the game
and surpassed the Chicago aggregation in fielding, hit
ting and in the pitchers' box.
Three Fingered Brown, long the idol of the Chicago
populace, was hit freely, after the first inning until the
seventh, when they gathered five hits and six runs.
The features of the game were th heavy hitting of the
Athletics, thir infield defense and the superiority of their
team work, in which the Cubs were picked to excel.
Coombs wa snot at his best for the Phillies. He walked
several men and made at least one error that resulted in a
The victory gives Philadelphia a two-game lead for the
world's championship, the Cubs having failed so far to
win a game.

While they did not score after the

that union printers did destroy all those lives, all that property.

Is that good reason for condemning a whole union, comprised of

citizens of the country? No! It is reason for condemning all unions*

STRANGLES MAN IN FAINT

HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 18.—
Sitting in his carriage, apparently
asleep, Frank Amlel Johnson, of
the Hartford Rubber Works, was
found this afternoon by bis friend,
Frank Brinkman, when the latter
returned to his home on Laurel
street, and later, when physician
stated that Johnson had been dead
an hour, the medical examiner gave
the cause of death as accidental
strangulation caused by a stiff shirt
bosom and collar band.
Brinkman is treasurer of a fra
ternal lodge and Johnson had prob
ably called to pay his monthly
dues, when finding nobody at home,
he drove under Brlnkman's carri
age shed to escape the downpour
of rain. When he could not arouse
