Chicago, Oct. 10. Favored by the
breaks of the game, the Cuba tolled
through 13 wearing rounds on the
South Side yesterday, finally putting
the White Sox to rout and deciding
the second titular clash by the score
of 6 to 5. A clean single to left In
time of need by Jim Archer broke
the deadlock and brought a sigh of
relief from some 29,000 spellbound fans
who sat glued to their seats from
starting time until gathering darkness
threatened to lower the curtain with
the figures tied. It was the third
largest crowd ever attracted to Com
The battle was a heart-breaker for
the Sox to lose, and more particularly
for Eddie Clcotte and Joe Benz. The
little "knuckle ball" expert started the
fray, but two errors acd a lost fly
ball just about finished him in the
fourth when the Cubs amassed four
runs. He failed to regain his compos
ure in the fifth, and with a run al
ready home and none dead Benz was
called in to stand the Cubs on their
heads until Archer broke up the show.
JOB BCtl AGAIN IMICKV.
Benz lived up to his reputation of
being unlucky when he blew in the
hoodoo chapter. He nailed Schulte
on a pop to Weaver before anything
started. Zlm then cracked a line sin
gle between short and third. Bens
tottered long enough to pass Saier.
Good then lofted to Chappell, and it
looked as though nothing would hap
pen. The mistake came when Brid
well, a light hitter, was granted trans
portation. It was a fine opening for Archer,
who was due for a hit the bags
loaded, two dead and the chances of
settling the. game fast being dimmed
by darkness. Bena shot over a couple
and Archer caught one to his liking.
It sailed on a line to left, Zim scored
and Saier was an easy out at the
plate on Chappell's peg to Schalk.
The Sox then took their turn, two
of three batters fanned and the sec
ond game of the series slipped into
history as neatly as you please. Score:

New York. Oct 10. Officers of the
New York baseball club were exam
ined by District Attorney Whitman
yesterday to find out how hundreds of
reserved seat and admission tickets
for the world's series fell into the
hands : of speculators. The officials
were subpoenaed afterward to appear
before the grand Jury ' Wednesday.
One of the sensational developments
was trie iact mat tne national com
mission had secured the total of 1,400
Secretary Foster told Whitman he
never had said any . tickets had been
sold or given out to persons in the
office of the district attorney or the
corporation counsel. Willis Abbott,
a reporter, declared to the district
attorney, however, that Foster had
made such a statement to him.
Foster gave Mr. Whitman ua club's
books, showing the name and address
of every ticket buyer and the row,
section and number of the sections.
The names and addresses of all whose
checks had been returned because the
club was unable to fill the orders were
HEMPSTEAD DISTRIBUTES TICKETS.
Harry Hempstead, president of the
club, made an affidavit for the district
attorney saying he had had charge of
the sale and distribution of tickets
for the series. In the affidavit Hemp
stead said there were 8,943 tickets
for reserved seats in the upper tier,
and that these were distributed as
National commission, 1,400; Charles
H. Ebbets, president of the Brooklyn
club, 350; New York and suburban
newspapers, 1,050; Harry M. Stevens,
caterer, and persons in charge of the
Polo grounds, to take care of adver
tisers, both on the billboards and offi
cial programs, "as well as his own
friends," 365; Frank Farrell, New York

National league, 200; John J: McGraw,
300; to players, 312, and to E. G. Bar-1
rows, for distribution in the Interna
tional league, 100. This accounts for
a total of 4,462, and, according to the
affidavit all the others were sold to
the public. !
POLICE TAKE SCALPER.
Many of those listed asked for more
reserved seat tickets than were given
them, and Hempstead, made oath that
some of these were gjven $2 tickets,
which are for seats In the lower sec
tion, of the grand stand. This was
done at the direction of the national
commission. Ebbets received 450 of
-these for each game.
Captain Oppenheim, in charge of
the special police, and Lieutenant
Detective Brown grabbed a man in
front of the press entrance- to the
grounds yesterday afternoon. They
took him into the clubhouse and found
150 $2 tickets in his possession. Six
teen speculators were arrested by the
police in all and each fined $10 for

New York, Oct 10. Sheriff Har
burger is entertaining a real "fan" at
Ludlow-street jail in the person of
Henry A.. Ludlam of Brooklyn, whose
wife got an order for 'his arrest Oct.
23 of lat year. Ludlam was $3,750
behind in the payment of alimony and
the order directed that he be detained
at the jail until his release be ordered
by the court and the amount of his
post-connubial indebtedness paid. At
10 o'clock Ludlam walked into the
sheriff's office and announced that he
wanted to serve his six months and
then be at liberty in New York.

Chicago, Oct. 10. Battling Nelson,
who is matched to battle Ad Wolgast
in a 10-round contest In 1 Milwaukee
Monday n!;ht. will shift his training
camp to the scene of the contest today.
The once durable Dane has put in
two weeks of . strenuous work here
and feels that the fans in the town
where he got his ring start would
like to see him in training before the
big match. The Milwaukee Athlatio
club, has been thrown open for the
Battler's use. Nelson Is very popu
lar in and around the Beer City, and
believes he and his arch enemy will
draw a capacity house.
Nelson is in gooa condition, ne nas
given his hands a thorough tryout
and declares they will stand the
punching that will lay Wolgast low.
The Dane has planned a battle of
infighting from the start and will play
mainly for the Cadallao lad'a body.
The old time confidence is as strong
in the Battler as ever before, and
he freely predicts that Ad ' will not
hear the bell in the final round. A
study of the work of the two indicates
that it will be a slugging match from
start to finish. Tickets for the match
arrived here and are on sale at Bloom
