SCHEDULES OF THE PENNANT CONTENDERS
AT A SPECIAL MEETING
THERE ARE TWO POINTS
about our tailoring we wish to
Impress upon you. The first is
that in spite of the high charac
ter of our tailoring it doesn't
make a dent in your pocketbook
to have a suit made here.. The
second' is that the long wear you
get out of garments we fashion
makes them really cheaper than
ordinary clothing. Think come
and be measured.

OUTCOME HI DOUBT
IANTS SCORE CLEAN VICTORY
New York, Sept. 25. After an ex
ceptionally nerve-tingling two days
for baseball enthusiasts, the New
York-Chicago series J the National
league ended yesterday in a 5 to 4
victory for the home team. The game
kept the immense crowd at a high
pitch of excitement and there were
demonstrations notable even for such
an exceptional string of contests as
New York has been witnessing the
past fortnight.1. The dramitic and ap
parently uncertain ending of Wednes
day's game had sharpened interest In
this last contest especially in view of
President Pulliam's-' ruling yesterday
that the umpire's' decision that Wed
nesday's game was a tie would stand.
Appeared for Flint Game.
Further interest added by the fact
that Chicago had already played a
game before the crowd arrived yes
terday or rather had appsared on the
field with no other team and no other
umpire on the diamond and had
claimed that a 9 to 0 defeat should be
ecorded against New York. They
relied on this, it was said, upon the
rule which they construed as making
compulsory the playing off of a tie
game on the day succeeding it. Fur
ther, they urged that the Nev York
team should, under the rules, be fined
$1,000 for failure to appear to play.
The officers of the New York club,
however, stated, they had received no
intimation from the Chicago club of
their desire to play off the tie, and
did not take the matter at all seri
ously. One of the officials called at
tention to the fact that Chicago ap
peared for the regular scheduled
ame in spite of the statement that
had been given out that the New Yo.rk
ers were by rules barred from playing
until the fine had been paid, which
seemed to indicate that the Chicago
club was not altogether in earnest in
No Doubt of Earnnlnru.
But in the scheduled game there
was no doubt of earnestness on both
sides. New York scored promptly in
the first, Tenney on a double by Don-
lin and Herbog on a hot infield single
by Seymour. In tho fifth they took
their other three, Tenney and Bresua-
ha:i on a three baser by Donlin and
Donlin by a sacrifice.
Chicago bunched its four 'in the
seventh. A single by Tinker scored
Steinfeldt and a three ba-jer by Kling
brought in Hofman and Tinker. The
locals then retired Wiltse in favor of
Mathewson and Howard, batting for
Coakley, who had replaced Brown,
brought in Kling. Score:
New York 2 000 3 00005 7
Chicago .0 0 000 0 4004 7
