GAME OF BIG SERIES. 4 TO
SERIES FOR THE WORLD'S BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP BEGAN TO
DAY AT NEW YORK INTEREST IS AT FEVER HEAT BOSTON
WITH DUFFY LEWIS IS STRONGEST IN THE FIELD, WHILE ALL
NEW YORK ADMIRERS CLAIM GIANTS STRONGEST AT BAT.
NEW YORK, Oct. 8. (Special to
The Yuma Daily Examiner). Boston
won the first game of the world's
series for the baseball championship,
score 4 to 3.
NEW YORK, Oct. 8. There are
more sick grandmothers, dead cous
ins and helpless sisters and brothers
in New York today than there will
be until the beginning of another big
world's series of baseball games. Men,
more independent in business enter
prises than the little fellows who must
invent needless excuses to get avay
from work, have frankly agreed to
"shut up shop," and journey up to
the Polo Grounds at an early hour
to be "among those present" when the
first signal is given for the game that
will mark the beginning of the fight
between the New York Giants of the
National League and the Boston Red
Sox of the American League for the'
baseball championship of the world.
The line to the Polo Grounds ticket
box formed just, after midnight thif
morning, as positively no seats have
been sold in advance except 3,000 or
4,000 for the grand stand.
A game will be played every day un
til one side wins four. The umpires
selected for the all-important series
are "Silk" O'Loughlin and W. Evans
of the American League and C. Klem
and G. Rigler of the National League.
Tomorrow's game is slated to take
place in Boston, and so on until one
side has been- declared the victor.
In the event of postponement the
teams will, stay in the city wherein
they are scheduled until such game
This jump from one city to the other
oer night .may prove a hardship to
the players, who will thus be obliged
to travel over night, but it will in
crease the interest in the seven-game
series and will make it impossible for
New York in this case to secure, an
undue advantage by playing more than
the opening game on the home
After nibnths of cogitation it tool:
the anembers of the National Commis
sion and the representatives of the
two clubs concerned just two hours
and fifteen minutes to arrange foi
this year's struggle, including what
looks like the most satisfactory settle
ment of the much discussed ticKtu
question as yet adopted.
While the commission will be re
sponsible for every ticket sold in Bos
ton as well as New York, the methods
employed for the , disposal of same
will be entirely different.
Here in New York no tickets will be
sold to the general public by mail
The scale of prices will be $1 admis
sion to bleachers, $2 admission to the
lower stand and $3 for reserved seats
in the upper pavilion.
The 1 and $2 tickets will only be
procurable at the ticket offices on the
,day of the game, just as on any or
dinary occasion. Only one ticket will
be sold to each person and the pur
chaser of same must go right into the
The plan, it is thought, will do away
with the scandal of last year, when
so many tickets fell into the hands
Different arrangementshave been
made in Boston, where the manage
ment of the Red Sox has been making
preparations since early in July. No
applications through the mail which
are accompanied by cash' or checks
will be filled, but all will be consider
ed, gone over carefully, and the appli
cants will be inforhied when they -may
apply for their seats. There, as in
this city, every precaution is being
made to circumvent the ticket scalp
ers. All applications will be filled in
the order of receipt so far as possible
The Boston tickets are similar to those
sold here last year, being good for the
three games, with a clause guarantee
'ing the return, of money if the third
same scheduled for Boston is nol
played. The scale of prices in Bos
'on will be 50 cents for the bleachers,
$1 for pavilion, $2 and $3 for grand
stand and $5 for the boxes. No ap
plications for single tickets will be
considered in the advance sale.
Naturally with the determination of
the championship 'in the two biggest
eagues interest centers in the con
tenders for the world's highest base
ball honors and the chances for eacl
are being compared. Tn picking e
winner one is more or less influenced
as to whether he favors the National
or American League. Of course, ir
those cities where there is but one
major league club partisans can set
but their representative, because, un
like Philadelphia, New York, Boston
Chicago and St. Louis, fans have not
had the opportunities of, witnessing
both in action. Where, however, ar
opportunity has been afforded to sei
the two clubs and eliminating league
prejudice, it looks to be about a toss
up as to whether Boston or New Yori
would be he victor. This is furthei
strengthened by the dope of the un
official figures. In batting the Giant
have the edge on the Red Sox, while
the latter are much better fielders
than McGraw's. men. Both teams ar.
equally strong in the batteries, while
Vew York, according to the figures
are better base runners and run get
ters. If Cady and Carrigan can stoj
the Giants running wild when the
;et on the bases it is going to be a
big help to Boston, other things bein?
equal.' Neither team appears to bt
a well-balanced club in either iialdin?
r batting. New York has an infield
that has batted .291, as against the
2S3 of Boston, but Doyle's big per
centage has much to do with boosting
the figure, while Larry Gardiner with
.322 pulls the Red Sox up. .Instate
what extent the recent injury to ihe
latter at Detroit is going to handicaj
the new-American League champions
is a question, but that it will not be
without effect, generally conceded. It
is in the outfield that Boston outclass
es the. Giants at evey angle. Yet New
York's outfield, weak though !t collect
ively may be, is more evenly balanced
lian Boston's, because it is Speikei's
high percentage that accounts for the
discrepancy. There is nothing to be
gleaned from the figures as to whe iher
Boston's pitching staff is beUer than
that of the Giants, and that will re
main a matter of individual opinion
until the series is over, but it- looks
as though New York wa3 a trifle the J
stronger behind the bat.
THE QUESTION IS ALSO ANSWERED BY THIS "BEST SELLER" OF

The final argument for this new

He Leads, Othe.rs Follow
Theodore Roosevelt was not the
sort to hide behind the door. For that
reason, America admires him. For
that reason, Colonel Bryan, Mr. John
Maynard Harlan, and the very late
Congressman J. Adam Bede, follow
him wherever he makes speeches.
Why do they not precede him, and
why does he not follow them? The
answer is fairly obvious. He is a lead
er, and not a follower. What sort of
man do you want in the White House,
at Washington a leader or a follow
er? Why are you a Progressive? In
all likelihood it is in no wise just
to say that you are a Roosevelt-worshiper.

LAND IS ONLY PERMANENT SOURCE OF WEALTH
Land is the only permanent property. If you want a safe investment,
Slocks and bonds may melt away like water which they possibly are.
Money in your pocket dribbles out through holes. Jewels are lost, or shrunk
in value by clever imitations. And as far as for savnigs in the sock or bank
it is of little avail to hoard up money when, year by year, more and m(ore is
squeezed out of the dollar.
Money goes down as the prices go up. The gold mines of the world are
pouring their bullion into the mints by scores of millions a year. More money
means cheaper money, just as more potatoes mean cheaper potatoes. Your
hoarded dollar shrinks in purchasing power even while you look at it it buys
less and less of the things of real value for which men and women toil.
Save your money, if you can spare anything from the grievous expenses of
,a decent livelihood; and then, if you want your savings to work for you
fcuy land. For no more land is being created, population is increasing, and
the .value of available land in civilized countries rises constantly with the
demand and the diminishing value of coin and bank notes.
'The day is coming, perhaiis, when land will no longer be a commodity for in
vestment or speculation. It will belong to society -as a whole. Before that
time comes, society will have cut off the profits of the speculators by taking
the unearned increment of real estate for the. communities that created it
Eut meanwhile, .the big fellows are grabbing land and the profits, knowing
that they have a sure thing. And so is this suggestion' to the little fellows.
Beginning yesterday the Examiner began the publication of one of the most
interesting features perhaps the most intersting which was ever included
in the journalistic work of a national political campaign. Every day during
the remainder of the campaign it win puunsa a &icuiui u, .
other of thirty-six great magazine and newspaper writers of national reputa
tion There will be news reports of actual happenings by such great report
ers as Richard Harding Davis, C. P. Connolly and Richard Washburn Child;
views and reviews by such heavy thinkers as Herbert Croly, Willian Allen
White Samuel Merwin and Jane Addams; humorous skits by such laugh
provokers as George Ade, Wallace Irwin and George Fitch; imaginative writ
ings by such creators of popular fiction as Edna Ferber, Inez Haynes Gilmore;
Gouverneur Morris and Hamlin Garland. Never before, probably, in the his
tory of American publications, has any magazine or newspaper been able to
put forth a seasonal announcement including so many eminent names. It
will appear simultaneously, in a syndicate of newspapers covering the whole
country; but The Examiner will publish it exclusively in Yuma.
This feaure is unique in another way. These eminent writers, who get from
$250 to $1,000 for a single magazine or newspaper syndicate contribution, are
not receiving a cent of pay. They are giving their services free, as their con
