Summing up tho world's series
just closed, tho champion Athletics
outplayed tho Giants at every angle
of the game. They out-hit them,
out-fielded them, out-guessed them,
out-pitched and out-stayed them.
Tho Mackmcn made good on their
acknowledged asset hitting. The
Giants failed in their strong point
speed. That tells the Btory of how
tho Athletics won four of the six
games played. An honest compari
son of tho two teams yielda tho
palm to the Athletics in every de
partment of the game. Perhaps two
positions, second-base and catcher,
wero a toss-up, but in tho other de
partments the Athletic players prov
ed in a class by themselves.
Standing head and shoulders
over tho stars of past world's series,
Frank Baker is today acknowledged
the greatest sensation of the diamond
in years. His luttmg in the game
was simply marvelous. Twice ho
.was individually responsible in
winning games for the Mackmcn
with homo-run clouts and, during
tho other four days, his heavy bing-
ling was" ever prominent. Baker
scored seven runs and made nine
hits, including two home runs and
two doubles, and his record thus
speak for itself .Added to the fact that
Baker was playing in tho face of be
Ing made a target for his opponents
spikes, his playing was tho nerviest
ever witnessed in a world's series
Taking into consideration that a
loser always looks 100 per cent,
comparatively, inferior to a winner,
the Giants proved a dismal disap
pointment to their supporters. Their
much-talked about offensive strength
so-termed "aggressiveness," was
lacking quality and their heralded
base-running prowess did not mate
nanze. Unly lour times in tno six
games did they advance a baso by
stealing and the Athletics evened up
this scoro with four pilfers them
selves. And in tutting and pitching
tho Giants alto fell by the wayside
Rube Marquard, tho famed south
paw, crumbled something woefully
when called on in tho pinch. Ho
participated in three games, and ox
cept for a couplo of innings in the
second gamo Marquard failed to
show anything liko championship
form. Tho great Christy Matthew
son was also a failure, after getting
off to a flying start. Ho pitched
great ball in the first game, but in
the other two contests he could not
hold tno Athletics, iwico he was
given substantial leads, and when a
twirler of Matthewson's caliber can
not hold a team after getting out in
front, his work does not count for
much. McGraw's second - string
pitchers, with tho possible exception
of Crandall, did not come through
with the expected victory.
Tho Mackmen,on the other hand
showed brilliantly in tho pitching
department. Chief Bender pitched
three magniucent games, winning
two of them, and Plank and Coombs
mado good with a sparkling victory
apiece. Tho feat of Bender in pitch
ing and winning two games within
three days easily makes him tho
pitching star of tho series.
On tho oasis ol individual com
narison taken from a consensus of
opinions of experts at the games
Meyers and Doyle aro tho only two
men to compare favorably with the
Mackmen. Doyle played a consis

he Gaines Last Sunday Both Well
Judging by tho big noise coming
from tho row of automobiles and
from the grand stand last Sunday,
somo people in Wailuku get excited.
Tho baseball being played on Maui
now will compare favorably with
that put up in Honolulu, and as
the season progresses, the different
teams will tighten up and runs will
become harder to get.
Tho first game Sunday between
Paia and Kahului, began with both
teams very confident of winning, as
both had strengthened. Tho
strengthening of Paia was illegal,
ho.vever, and they were obliged to
let their new man warm tho bench
The sluggers from Kahului got busy
soon after the game started, and
they hammered tho hall all over the
lot. Towards the ciid of tho game
Paia woko up and gave Kahului a
fight, but it was too late, and the
breakwater boys got away on the
long end of tho score.
Tho second game between the
Stars and the Wailukus was tho big
noise. When these two teams face
one another, it seems as though the
spectators become charged as with
electricity. Many of them became
so excited last Sunday, that they
entirely forgot themselves. Tho
game was a good one, and it was
demonstrated early that the score
was going to be small, as the play
ers were up on their toes, and tak
ing chances which required many
close decisions from the umpire.
The Stars mado tho same fatal mis
take that tho Kahuluis did ii; the
previous gamo against Wailuku
They waited too long, looking to
the wildness of Meyer to give them
a free pass to first, and whilo he
did pass quite a number, still he
continually had the batters in
hole, and succeeded in striking out
13 Stars. Tho game was won for
Wailuku in the third inning, when
by good clean consecutive hitting
they knocked out four runs. Aftor
that Bal tightened up, and only
one more run was scored.
Next Sunday tho sccno will be
transferred to Kahului where tho
Stars meet the Paias for tho
last gamo in the series, and the
Wailukus meet the Kahuluis. The
Star-Pa-a game will bo played
first, and these teams should make
an effort to start their game on
time, as last Sunday tho last inning
of tho last game was played in

The Death
of Ely
The Man Who Made the Hist Daring
Flight Meets End.
From an aviation field in Macon,
Ga., where lay tho crushed body of
an aviator who had fallen to his
death, came sad news that recalled
to thousands the memory of a lithe,
boyish looking figure clad in cordu
roy and leggings, wearing an auto
mobile hat and goggles, of a youth
acclaimed at Sclfridge aviation field
ist winter because ho was the hero
of one of tho greatest feats of mo
dern times. Euceno B. Ely had
flown that day to the cruiser Penn
sylvania, landed on its deck and
demonstrated the possibilities of a

The world astounding flight of
Ely took place just nine months be
fore the day of his death. A3 ho
xrrived aboard tho cruiser ho was
greeted by a beautiful young girl,
lis wife, whoso praiso meant more
to him than tho money and medals
ic received for risking his life.
"This never would have happen
ed if Mabel had been with him.''
declared Mrs. II. C. Hall, mother
of Ely's widow, at her homo in
Corto Madera last night.
"She always inspected his ma
chine before every flight. Ho call
ed her his guardian angel, and sho
wouldn't permit him to ascend
when there appeared to be danger."
Ely's guardian angel was absent
recently for tho first timo sinco her
husband began flying. She receiv

Davenport was the homo of Ely
when a boy. Ho left thero sixteen
years ago, equipped to mako lna
living as a mechanic. Ho worked
at odd jobs indifferently, ho took
up automobiling with slight success;
then tho era of aviation dawned and
Ely taught himself tho flying art.
But Ely knew that the fate of all
who fly is death.
"Tho game will get me somo
day," was his occasional prophecy
to the little wife who kept him un
der her care. Then to reassure her
ho would say :
"I never fly, except where I know
it to bo safe. You know, dear
heart, from insido mo must como
tho necessary assurance that I am
fit. I can't translate it into words,
but when it's voico says 'Don't fly 1'
then Eugene Ely does not fly"
The Monthly Ministers' School was
held at SpreckelsvilIeron last Thursday
