COMMENT ON SPORTS
GIAXTS STILL IX FIGHT.
Elimination of Pirates by Cubs Gives
Them Another Chance.
After ■ stirring, nprv» racking nght that ha»
cr rer b*ea equalled In th* history of major league
t*FCba3 1= this country, the Giants have still a bare
chase* to win the Ka.ior.ai League championship
4^3 that coveted \itvis of bunting which has been
•he bone of contention for so many weeks. By
WJxmlTif: all three games from Boston New York
fee Ue Chicago, even if the- board of directors cf
tv. National League does net reverse Mr. Pulllam's
decision and give th« disputed game with Chicago
jo yew Tcrk. The Cubs put the Pirates out of the
Pjbj yesterday in their last game of the season.
played in Chicago before a crowd of more than
•tlrty thousand persons, who went crazy with joy
ff the ctsassalasja. with Brown In the box. won a
gtdrrlng contest by c score of 6 to 2. The Pirates
t»ve - ads a great fight, but the y have shot their
»if>st row. and the Issue lies between New York and
Cfclrara By virtue of ruperior baseball the Giants
ffcnuid be safe — defeat by now, but that dis
puted cam** bars the way, and the final decision
tr 4 ' rot be ksjasva until to-day.
That disputed me between New York and Chi
cago is j-laj-ia^r a far mor» Important part than
*-ss expected at the time in the winning of the
Jfatltmal League pennant. That game, co cleanly
iron by the Giant 3 and lost through a technicality
m the decision of Harry C. Padßasa. president of
•he National league, will have cost New York the
pe^rsr.t if it is finally lost. There- is a bare
change that the board of directors will maw the
decision <-f Mr. Pulliara when It meets to-day, in
«Mch c&z* the Giants will be fairly safe. Mr.
Pcl'lam is tight in upholding hip umpires on a
exertion of fact. »but it is a grave question in ray
nind whether h« did not stretch a point in trying
to protect his umpires from well mTited criticism.
An «Tnplr» has a duty to perfcrm under the rules
« w-11 as a player, ar.d It Is not the duty of an
tmsir* to 'cave the diamond, even if necessary
to S'.-ek a place cf safety, before rendering; a de
«-isinn on the fact*. It is a rather lame excuse
■ustler the circumstances for O'Day. the umpire, to
f»y that he did not declare the runner out and
order the f-*2d cleared because in his opinion it was
tor- dark to continue. It looks too much as if
"ca".:r.g the game en account of darkness" was an
afterthought, end had no particular bearing on,
th* c&se In point at the time. Inasmuch as the
ursp'.re faiied In his duty, th« question resolves
itself jnto whether New York should be robbed of
a pas* »on on the merits of the play en what is
distinctly s. technicality. If it were possible at this
it:* day. it is - .'• to say that a number of games
could I"* thrown put for the same rea*on. end while
I em a strong believer in living 1 up to the strict
]ert»r cT th? rulfp th»re is such a thing as long
custom ir. chspp of the kind being worthy of some
crnsid"ration under the conditions that existed in
the new memcrjible gan.o of September 23.
Whs: with accidents and the sudden lapse from
his g-jpeTb raid-seasnn form of George TVlltse, It is
tafe to say that atoOrscw and his Giants would
have b*rn In sorry case In the last t»n days of
c^c^rate fighting had it not been for the. splendid
w?rk of Leon Am*»s. He came suddenly into his
v»rr best form a week ago. and has since beaten ,
Ciscicnati one* and Philadelphia twice. He and ,
Jl£th«»wson have been the only victorious New York
pitchers since "Wills", despite an awful beating, was
psvd from defeat in a Plttsburg game by the t*-r
r!f.; hitting of the Giants, and no praise is too
high for their splendid pluck and grit. To them
rr'js: g" tnost of the glory for the splendid fight, and
en them rests the burden of winning the three
gam's with Boston that must be won to save the
peasant.
I gave Bresnahari a wcid of praise a week ago.
■sd in the days that have passed since th»>n he has
only proved his worth again. Suffering agonies
fn m a sprained ankle, he is playing as hard as
erer. f.tA 310 c* I»or.lin. too, is struggling along with
a leg so ]am» that he can hardly walk. All honor
ta th^m and to evrry other rr.aa on the team, and
an g-v><] fnrtnn". too. be with them in the final
£2Tr.*F this w»ek:
sc?rcr!y less thrilling than th° glorious fight for
the National league penannt is the struggle for
Arserican League honors between Detroit, Cleve
land s.rA Chicago. Chicago won a wonderful game
from L»etroit. making only one hit and proving
£?2;n th«?ir risrht to be called hitless wonders.
C:*v*;ar:d and Pt- Louis were tied in an eleven
Inning gam*, and nine points only separate The Ti
gers, who -ad. and the White Sox, who are in
third place.
Tn the gallant fight cf the Giants and the intense
Ir.rerert their efforts to win the pennant have
£rous« l d the sorry plight of the Yankees has at
trsrt^d IttxSe attention r.f late. But there have not
be»n larking signs lately that something was stir
rlr.r in the camp of Eibirfeld, and the return of
th* team to New York has shown that much good
work has been done toward assembling, a team
that should figure from the very start next year.
Several excellent men bare b*en obtained by the
ream's scouts, and of these there pe^ms to be
Ftjec:al premise in Cree. as good an outfielder as
has been seen here in some time, and v good hit
ter to boot: Gardner, who i< playing well at see
csd Vase, and O'Rourke. who is an extra infielder.
Bad is much better than when he first joined the
team. Of the new pitchers Wilson has pitched
ffisf excellent games, including that in wl'.ich he
outciass»d the remarkable Waiter Johnson on Sat
urday. ar.<2 locks like a real find. He was bad in
CT.;y one game, in Chicago, ■where he seemed un
sb'e, to find the plate. Warhop has pitched fairly
weTJ or*:** or twice, very badly once or twice more,
t.r.i v*>ry weil indeed on Saturday, when he won
the first game from Washington. Billiard has not
proved hims-if thoroughly yet.
Iv-ke. rv.^siro. Manr.tr.g. Wilson, Warhop and
Hogg should giv Elberfe'.d the nucleus of a good
pitching staff n^xt year, but it .- . - this depart-
Tser.t thai he must strengthen the team. Else
vrbiere it is Ftrong. Moriarity. while perhaps not
the equal of Chase as a Srst baseman. Is more
ths.n zzi acceptable substitute; Gardner and La
porte can take care of second base. Ball and
(TBonrke can be trusted at shortstop, and Conroy,
at third ba?e, completes * good infield. In the
OBtSdd Cree. SlcDveen and Hen-phill have done
work. ar,d should continue to do so. even if
Keeler Is eetrltely out of It.

WHITE SOX WIN AGAIN
Fight Their Way Back Into Race by
Beating Detroit in First Game.
[By Teleyraph to The Tribune.]
Chicago. Oct. 4.-The White So X won back a
bare chance of •winning the American League per.
nant to-day by heating Detroit in a remarkable
game by a score of 3to 1. If they can win both
remaining games from the Tigers, and Cleveland
loses one to St. Louis, they will win the flag, after
a desperate fight.
Kiillan really outpltched "White to-day, allowing
only one hit, and even that did not figure in the
scoring. The game -was won In the first inning.
Hahn walked. Jones bunted safely, thanks to an
error, and Isbell advanced Hahn and Jonee with
a sacrifice. Rossman dropped Downs'* throw,
making Dougherty safe at first, and Hahn scored.
Dougherty stole second and Jones scored on
Davis's long fly. and, after Parent had walked.
Dougherty pot home, on a double steal.
Despite the hure crowd at the fame between The
Cubs and the Pirates, twenty-five thousand fans
saw the game, making nearly sixty thousand at the
two games.
The score follows:

There was no leek of excitement at Speedway

of the season, and the drive was so well filled
that when Ben Cohen's bay stallion Red Bird.

to be rather a hazardous proceeding. Patrolman
Fitzgerald, who is stationed on the upper stretch,
was after the refractory animal in a second, and
managed to reach his bridle and reduce him to
order before be bad a chance to do any damage.
When the sport was at its height a horse owned

CROWD SEES GAME HERE.
Many Fans at Polo Grounds to
Watch Tie production of Plays.
More than five thousand baseball fans witnessed
the game between the Chicago Cubs and the
Pirates by the Compton electric bulletin system
at the Polo Grounds yesterday afternoon. The
crowd rooted vigorously for the Cubs to win
ami put the Giants back in the race, and en
thusiasm was as high as if the Giants had been
engaged in a. genuine contest with their bitterest
rival. As the bulb showed the player at bat the
spectators begged him to "hit It out." As the sen
sational and spectacular plays were announced to
the crowd there was tremendous applause for the
individual who made the play.
Not only were the fans rooting for. the Cubs to
win. but many members of the Giants, Including
Mathewson. Donlin. Bresnahan, Seymour. Wiltse
and Marquard. were present, as were Bowerman
and Browne, the ex-Giants, and other Boston
players, and a rousing cheer was given for each
player. After the contest was over Mathewson
and Bresnahan were the only players who escaped
the crowd, and after being followed over the field
by the fans and asked to make a speech they
sought refuge, with the aid of several Polo Ground
helpers, under the uncompleted grandstand.

last play of th* game, despair was everywhere. But
the fans were game, and cheered every mar on the

proximately twenty-five times, !s a hard but not
dangerous one. There are many turns and the
straightaway stretches are extremely few and far
between and i if short lencth. Furthermore, these
turns are inclined to spring i>n one unexpectedly
and it will be difficult to remember them.

ON COLLEGE GRIDIRONS
THE SEASON'S OUTLOOK.
Yale Has the Making of a Strong
Team— Hope at Harvard.
It is far too early to make any predictions as to
the probable outcome of the big college football
games this year, but it is net too early to advance
the opinion that the season, now fairly und.-r way.
will be one of the most interesting in the history of
tbe sport. The revised rules, which have improved
the E amo to such a marked degree, have been tried
out for two years, and thstr application now
amounts to something more than experiments Th<
forward pass, under a further revision last fall, i 3
still subject to development, while advanced idens
In the use and variation of the on-side kick can
aiso be look?d for. but on the whoie the game has
settled down, and the various elevens can ba de
veloped quicker along approved lines than was poa
sibl3 last year or the year before. Further than
that, the more important OSSSBjaa are not larking in
good material, which Indicates evenly balanced
teams and consequently close Jind hard fought
struggles. This is particularly true at Yale. Prince
ton, Pennsylvania and Annapolis. Harvard. Cornea
and West Point have more to do. perhaps, but In
dications even at this early da-e point to strong
elevens if the material can be properly developed.
The game? on Saturday did not show much to the
casual observer, but were all important to the
coaches as indicating points of weakness that must
be bolstered ud or signs of strength that must be
made the most of. The Yale game was an excep
tion perhaps. Either Syracuse, under the coaching
of Howard Jones, a Yale end last yar. i>= remark
ably strong, or else Yale Is weaker than th* make
up of the team would lead one to believe. [ am
disposed to the first theory, and feel confident thai
future games will prove !t correct. Captain Horr
of Syracuse is a to-wer of strength in himself, and
he has gathered a team about him that knows
football and how it should b» played. Harvard
found a weaker foe in Maine than it did in Bo»
doln on Wednesday, Pennsylvania showed latent
strength against the good defence of Bucknell.
while Princeton had to do little more than go
through the motions to rest th" Sprtnjrfi°M Train
ing School, and u.»ed two or three men In each posi
tion for purely educational purposes, rorneil may
have been lucky to find a comparatively weak foe
in Hamilton, as the team has not settled down, and
played a loose, ragged game.
After looking over the material at the different
colleges. I feel disposed to hazard a prediction.
even at this early date, that Yale, with h*r com
petent coaches and Bettled system, will send out
another championship team. From tackle to
tackle, with th« possible except. tre, the
eleven should be wonderfully ptrong. Andr-:?
and Goebel make a pair of guards that an All-
America team would be proud of Gcf-bel ip
famed for his remarkable strength and is a vet
eran player; Andrus needs oniy a little experience
to place him among the famous guards of the
ppst. He played on his freshman team two years
ago — the best freshman team Yale ev<r had — but
•was forced to leave college, and returned last
year as a freshman. He played on the scrub.
side by side with Hobbs and proved himself time
and again. Hobbs. at left tackle, can be marked
already as a likely candidate for the All-America
team. He is of the Jim Hogan type, and knows
football and how best to apply bis knowledge.
On the other side. C'ooney, Brown and Killey will
make a pretty fight to oust Brides, the natural
choice for the place if it is finally decided to use
him in the line instead of the ba-k field, where he
played last year. Biddle and Hyde appear to be
tne leading candidates for centre. Both need a
lot cf coaching, bat both are earnest, hard work
<■-', i
On first gl3n<:e it would aeaui as if the coaches
had much to do In developing two ends of the class
of Alcott and Howard Jones, and a quarterback to
fill the ?ho=s of Tad Jones, but they are fortu
nate in having some good men to work with. So
far ns can be learned it has been decided to play
Captain Buroh at end rather than quarterback
for the excellent reason that he -rouble
enough with the captar w I it the added re
sponsibilities of running the team H» is a fast,
brilliant player, and w D be a sjOMs if he '"an
get over the unfortunate habi' tt getting hurt.
Logan has the call on the other end. A twisted
ankle kept him out of the Syracuse gam°. He.
too. has the habit of ssjttliiaj I art, but is fast in
getting down the field, a sure tackier and a clever
handler of the forward pass. Kllpatiick is close
to a ten-second man. and ha? wesj k Mm

care of his old position at fallback. He seems to
be overcoming a weakness in failing to aid the
runner, a weakness which led to his carrying thi
ball so much in the Princeton game last year,
when he made a name for himself. He is punting
as well as ever, and should prove a tjwer cf
strength.
Percy P. Haughton, the new coach of the Har
vard football team, has perhaps i less difficult task
than his immediate predecessors in building up a
championship team at Cambridge, in spite of the
fact that he has fewer veterans to call on than has
been the case at Harvard In several years. This
may sound paradoxical, but the opinion is based
on the theory that the candidates for the team will
not have to forget the teachings of one coacn be
fore they can fully understand and comprehend
the Ideas and system nf a new ■•■■- Haughton was
a player of note in his college days, and since then
has followed the game closely and has had some
experience In coaching. Further than that, he has
gathered about him a staff of able assistants, not
the least of whom if Charley Daley, the greatest
qua'rter&aclc of his day. both at Harvard and West
Point. Th'-rc is no lack of good material, either,
with which to build up a strong team. and. while
the opening game last Wednesday was not partic
ularly encourac'ng. neither was it discouraging, as
there were a lot of green men on the team whs
knew little or nothing <•* the finer points of the
game. The hark field ohowed indications of latent
strength, and the line men played a remarkably
strone defensive game for so early in the season.
Smith, at left halfback, mude a particularly good
impression, and Sprague, too, who took Graydon'a
place at right halfback. gave indications of bein-,'
a strong, heady runner. Browne, at quarterback.
ha« quickly developed the faculty of making a good
forward pass, and this may aid him materially la
the race for that important position, with two or
thrrp other who appear to be. about
equally prominent at this time. Crowiey, at right
end. was another man who made a favorable im
pression. He played a hard, Dggrensive game, and
: to liave a faculty for getting down under
punts and handling forward pasi"»s in a wu;
itair-ped him as likt-ly to hold his place.
The Tniversify of Pennsylvania coaches are has]
bejrir.nlrig to realize t!i*- troubles they are going to
have to turn out a winning team for the cham
pionship games. From present indications the weak
sp-'t threatens to be the rush line from tackle to
tackle. The loss of I>raper. whose scholast'. -
demands all hi« asfSjajMr with the fail
ure of Gallagher Is return, has left the line in a
weak condition. In the preliminary games to date
the coaches have devoted all their energy to trying
out the line candidates. With the exception of
Gaaton at one tackle, all <>f the five centre m»n
are new. The coaches are now divided between
Marks and i"ozzers for the cer.tre position. At
one guard Pike, who has had some collegiate- ex
perience, haa the making of a food man. He
weighs two hundred pounds and stands * feet 2
in<~hp;«. On the other side Irwin and r>l»frl>h are
having an even fight, although both m*-n !a.-k tha
weight needed for first class guards. Gaston's
running mate at tackle will be chosen from
Lamberton and Hoffacker. These three have al
ternated in the position to date, with the changes
slightly in favor of Burns. Scarlett and B- :
can take care of the ends.
The situation in the back,fleia is a,» satisfactory
as on the ends. Keinath is firmly established at
quarterback, and has a good substitute in Towae.
Manier is apparently sure of one halfback posi
tion. He is the best line plunger on the team, not
excepting Captain Hollenback.
"The Dally Princetonlan" fays that a M
coaching system has been devised at Princeton as
a result of a meeting last spring, and that during
the season the management hopes to have at least
sixty graduate coaches on hand in relays, each
group to remain about a week, to give th»* men in
dividual instruction. This sounds well enough in
theory, but is likely to prove a boomerang in prac
tice. There is an old saying that too many cooks
spoil the broth, and it looks to me as if there
would be altogether too many cooks at Princeton
if this plan is carried out. A little learning is a
dangerous thing, but too much learning, from the
point of view of various Instructors. is even more
dangerous, in my opinion, on the football field.

OPPOSES FREIGHT TUBE
TOO (OSTLY, SAYS BUSH.
Doesn't Think Wilgvs Plan Would
Succeed in City.
The chief weakness of the plan for a freight SOB»
way. as proposed by William. J. Wllgus. of tij«
Amsterdam Corporation, a weakness that would
frustrate the usefulness of such an underground
route. Is, in the opinion of Irvine T. Bash, presi
• lent of the Bush Terminal Company. Its failure to
provide for an efficient an»l prompt hand Mas; of
freight at a: operating cost -3s than that incurred
in the present method.
In a letter to The Tribune Mr Bush says that
any improvement .on the present method of aaovssat
freight between the railroad terminals and th»
piers should t« welcomed, but that New York, ta
its k»-en competition for commerce with other port*.
cannot afford to experiment with a substitute
which will mean an increase in the operating '"oat
of moving freight. 3uca an Increase, he ssssai
would certainly accompany the adopttoo of Mr.
Ynigns/a plan and result materially to the disad
vantage of the commerce of this port.
"Remembering." says. Mr. Bush, "that »•• must not
exceed present charges, let us look at the present
service and its cost. Take, first, the freljht to and
from the piers. This Is now transport I in-car lots
or more on rasa at an average co»t cf ttre«
cents for each hundred pounds. In less than car
lots the movement is usually made by carts at aa
average cost cf five cents a hundred pounds. In
this gwrement by far the greater portion is ia th«
larger lots i>nd is moved by barge. The small ship
ments largely originate in New York, and tbos*
which ar» transferred from the railroad tenrsrßiiLs
to the pier, while large in the aggregate, are but
a small percentage of the whole.
"The movement of small lots involves a greater
cost, whatever method is employed, mo for present
purposes we will consider the cost tr> be thres>
cents for each one hundred pounds. The average
cost of loading or unloading the barges is three
quarters of a cent a hundred, or a total of on«
and one- I cents for the two movement*. TaSm
lea.yes one and one-half cent?, or 30 cents a ton.
to cover all other co3ts. except the actual manual
labor of loading and unloading the baxg» or sub
way car. which will be about tha sasi» In other
cases.
From the balance. Mr. Bush points out. would
have to come the interest charges, taxes, mainte
nance, besides the trans pcrtatloa acd the salaries)
of clerks and officials.
Mr. Bush believes t&at another obstacle t» thm
success of the plan in operation would be the dtsß>
eulty la supp'yins freight to steamers promptly
enough so as not to Interfere with the process at
loading and unloading, particularly if small cars,
as planned, are to be used in. the proposed freight
subway. The limitaUons of the tunnel, he believes,
would compel the continuance of the system of
delivering at the piers by barges, at least of tha>
coarser and less perishable freight.
As for transferring freight between business cea
tres and the railroad terminals. Mr. Bush think*
the necessary establishment of a transfer potat
would overcome the added revenue to. b«» obtained,
from shipments in small lots. Even In the matter
of carting the refuse and ashes, any profit that
mfght be obtained, he believes, would have to
come from an increase In. the land values of th»
New Jersey mar- if the waste could b9 used
to fill them in.
Mr Bush says the operation of th« Chlcaajs>
freight subway « yet to prove that th» enter
prise is a financial success. A better solution oS
the problem than that proposed by Mr. TVllgus ho
thinks is to be obtained by following out the pres
ent system of establishing large terminals In
Brooklyn. New Jersey and States Island, where)
the freight might be sent in bulk- The Manhattan
waterfront ia too costly for such a purpose.
