EXPECT TO AVERT WAR.
Rccogni-cd, However, as Possible —
Vienna Papers Warn Peter.
\
Vienna. Oct. 9.— War between Austria-Hun- ;
pary and Servia is a recognized possibility, al- !
tb">i;ch it Is believed here that it will be averted. ;
King Peter is in a difficult position on account
of the clamor of the Servians for war, par- j
tlculairly since his tenure on the throne never !
vras very safe.
The Austrlans. on their part, have a new feeling :
of national enterprise on account of the for- :
ward movement in the annexation of Bosnia ;
and Herzegovina and would be more ready for '
further adventures now than they were a week i
sso. That the government recognizes the poasf- |
I'ility the military precautions in Hungary ■
thov. All the brtfsjM over th« Save and the. j
Danube near the Servian frontier are strongly i
£tisr<Jed..J>y_. patrols, and foux Danube River
monitors were concentrated at Budapest to-day. |
The government explains that this manoeuvre ]
irs.o planned pome time ago, but the Austrian j
T-n-M hare Belgrade at the mercy of their guns ',
if that were necessary.
The papers contain warning to Servia. j
The 'Wiener Tagblatf says:
The- next few days or hours will show whether ;
cScial Servia joins In this game of Muff. If it |
■wishe? to make a declaration of bankruptcy, j
that car. scon be managed. The people of Bel- !
grade must not forget, that -when once the mis- j
chief ha 3 gun there can be no pardon. '
"Die EicC says:
Servia seems to be drifting into an adventure |
•under the Dlnsion that it cannot lose anything; j
it canr.^t be warned too strongly against that ;
error. Servl can under certain circumstances j
l^se it? independence. ;
Th* -'Fremdenhlatt,*' the mouthpiece of the t
Foreign, Office, declares to-day that the pro- j
posed conference c-f the powers to discuss the |
Balkan situation will not meet with refusal to j
ljarticipate from Austria-Hungary in principle, ■
although whether or not the invitation will be
accepted depends upon the details of the pro
gramme.
Xo time is being lost before the assembling
of the conference to strengthen by every means
PosfiMe the new ties between Austria-Hungary
and Bu«nia and Herzegovina. In an army order
baaed this morning Emperor Francis Joseph
cirects that the recruits from the new dominions
iktit la the future take the same oath that the
•AtSftro-Hungarian soldiers take. Furthermore
the existing Bosnian and Henegovinian reei
■Mßts are to bear the title of "imperial*" and
"royal."

Bf-lp-ade, Oct. 8. — The clamor for war with
Austria-Hungary because t.f the occupation of

The "Politica" says: "We can depend upon
«*e million men in all of Serviu. all of Monte

The assertion is made in the. newspapers tint
the reigning- prtnee o t Montenegro has sent a
"•■sage to King Peter, in which he is quoted as
"AVhen the Servian army mart-lies to
the banks of the Drina my army will advance
B&dxwt Herzegovina."
Wealthy merchants are offering the Kins
Oooey for the needs of war, and women are con
tributing their Jewels. The president of the
Rational Assembly made a speech to the crowds

The Macerjonian-Bof r.ian committee he!d a

WHAT HUGHES DID AND
CHANLER WOULD UNDO.
i.
STOCK WATERING BY MERGERS.
Governor Hughes said in his speech of accept
ance: "The question is=, Shall the ef/.>rt to
maintain administration which shall place the
interests of the people above selfish advantage
v.c repudiated or supported? Shall th« effort to
correct abuses and to regulate effectively our
public service corporations be condemned or
(sustained?" The possibilities that formerly lay
in the hands of the exploiters of public service
corporations in the matter r>f stork watering and
the limitations that nr-- now Imposed hy tin-
Public Service commissions law ar-.- shown by
the following comparison of the actual situation
existing before and after the passage of the
present law, which is likely tv be repealed if
Mr. •"hanl-T is elected:
AFTER.
The capital stock of
two or more companies
merged or consolidated
cannot exceed the com
bined capital of the com
panies.
In other words, tha
merger itself cannot be
capitalized. Such ex
ploitation of the public
as was before endured is
forbidden to the public
service barons.
CAN YOU FIND ANT
ONE WHO CAN GIVE A
GOOD REASON WHY THIS
STATE SHOULD REPEAL
THE ABOVE LIMITATION
AND RBSTORK THB OLD
METHODS OF STOCK
WATERING?
BEFORE.
Upon a consolidation
the capitalization could
be Increased ad libitum.
In i st 4 six companies,
with a total capitalization
of J 17,000.000, were con
solidated into the Con
solidated Gas Company,
with a capitalization of
135,430.060, an Increase in
stock of $18,430,000. The
new company owned only j
such property as had
been owned by the six !
companies. Was there
any capitalization of the
merger? The capitaliza
tion has since, been in
creased to $100,000,000.
and on this the company |
in the SO-cent gas case
claims the right to earn
a profit from the con
sumer.
IS IT GOOD FOB THE
PI-RLir TO ALLOW SUCH
CAPITALIZATION OF A
MERGER?
In 1900 nine companies,
with tr.t.nl securities of
$19.. r iSS.fi29, were merged
into the New York Gas.
Electric Light, H.at and
Power Company mow a
part of the New York
Edison company), with
securities of M 4.429 SSS,
an Increase of 144.841.256.
HOW DO YOU LIKE
THAT CAPITALIZATION
OF A MERGER TO ADD
TO THB COST OF YOUR

In 1895 seven compa

COMEES'S BIG PBIZE
A SHARE IX THE $200,000,000.
Canal and Road Work l 7 sed to Spur
on Grafters and Heelers.
The spending of approximately $200,000,000 of
public funds in carrying out the policy of im
proving the roads and oompfetlng the barge
canal is the prize for success that State Chair
man William J. Conner 3is holding up to the
gaze of the Democratic county and Assembly
district leaders around the state.
"Give U s the building of the canil and the
good roads, and there won't be another Repub
lican Governor for ten years," is the way Con
ners puts it to the leaders.
The vision of that $200.<Wu'KV> has spurred
scores of grafters and unscrupulous heelers to
carry out the orders of Conners and Murphy in
this campaign. The Democrats ia\ c little
money, but the promise of getting something
out of the canals and good roads has Inspired
the Conners and Murphy men as they have not
be.-»n inspired for years.
Under Republican administration the canal
and gr>od roads projects were honestly begun,
and they a r.-- safeguarded by laws which ought
to make It difficult f..r the grafters to "get in
their hooks." But Mr. Conner? assures his
henchmen that if Chanier is elected they will
at once "break into" the canal appropriation.
REMOVAL OF P. S. C, TOO.
Another hope held out to the thirsty and
hungry in the removal of the PubHe Service
Commissioners if ChanW wins. Mr Conners
Bays that the iaw provides that the Governor
may remove them after filing his reasons with
the Secretary of State. So lonj? a- they are
"reasons" they will suffice for grounds for re
moval and the appointment of other men
These two great opportunities for public plun
der are aN.ut the best cards that Murphy and
Conners have these days, and they are using
them to th» limit. The Democrats now have
all the elective- state offices but the Governor.
The Governor appoints t he State Superintendent
of Public Works. While Governor Hugh.; ig
on guard this official can obstruct a Demo
cratic State Engineer and Surveyor; With a
Democratic Governor everything >w Id !,<• wide
open for Conners and Murphy.
Tin- great sum of money involved )r the nuild
ing of the barge canal and the state roads
naturally appeals to Democratic poliUciaiia of
the Conners and Murphy type. Murphy knows
what tins sort of an opportunity did for the
New York Contracting and TruckinK Company
under the Van Wyck administrate . when he
was ir. the Dock Hoard, and Conners knows
what it would mean in Buffalo an ] at other
points along the canal.
The funds f.>r ih» enterprises named are Joint
ly in Tli»- custody of and subje \ \<- . Istrihution
by the officials who will be elected In November
NO PWTNDERING WITH KU6HEI THERE.
Th<^ hi^h standard of eflfclency and Integrity
that dictated t!\-- selection of the candidates
nominated at Saratoga, together with the fact
that the money for the work thus far lias been
honestly spent, is a guarantee that there will
be "" plundering if Governor .Hashes and the
Republican state ticket is elected.
One-half of the $2(M>.OOO.OOti Is to be expended
in the construction of the barge tanal. Tlk
sum of $50,000,<J00 has been voted by the state.
and an equal sum. it is estimated, from the
localities for the construction of gm-d routls.

GiAHTS BOW TO
BITTER DEFEAT
CUBS WIN GREAT FIGHT
FOR PE.\X.t\T.
Thousands See Struggle, While
Other Thousands Storm the Polo
Grounds in Fain.
Falling upon Mathewson as he wavered for a
1 moment In the third inning. the Chicago Cubs
batted their way to victory over the Giants and
a third championship of the National League at
> the Polo 'Grounds yesterday. In that fatal In
ning New York's hopes were dashed to th«
j ground as four gray clad players crossed tho
plate. The score was 4 to 2. and fifty thousand
crazed supporters of the Giants groaned as the
! pennant was hopelessly lost for another year.
Word* can tell of how that game was won.
"Words can seek to tell of the frantic thousand*
who filled the Polo Grounds, of the still mor«>
: frantic thousands and tens of thousands who
vainly fought to get Into the grounds after the.
all too brief two hours allowed to those who
sought to see the struggle of the Giants for en
! trance. They can tell of how crazed men burned;
down a fence at one point and kicked their way
I through a grandstand at another, ef how on*
man. perched on a pillar of the elevated, where
he might see one play out of ten. fell to his
death as he roared his Joy at the run New York
had scored at the very start.
Words, again, can be found to put Into figures
a picture of the vastness of the crowd. It Is
easy to say that not less than eighty thousand
men, women and children tried to see the- game,
and that thirty thousand of them actually
gained entrance to the park, while as many
more saw fragments of the play from the neigh
boring heights, and that fully twenty thousand,
after their vain fight for admission, went sadly
home or kept up until the last play was mads
the desperate struggle to win a way Inside
against the iron wall of policemen that guarded
every entrance.
But words fall when one tries to convey the
living, single thins that crowd became. Fused
by the interest th* whole country ha» been,
swept into by the most stirring: struggles tho
sport of baseball has ever known, these thirty
thousand atoms were welded, by a fore* as mys
terious as that which binds the particles of mat
ter in nature together into a compart. u=tte4
whole, that thought and yelled and moved and
breathed as one suffering; self as the tragedy on
the field was unfolded.
FTOHTIN'O TO THE EXT>.
FV>r tragedy it was. no I<>»s to the great thing*
that one must call a crowd than to the battling;
players in the white of the hom| team on th«
field. Every player Mi that he was fighting
again, and making a losing fight after that third
inning, for a prize already won. And. no mat
ter what individual idea? of that disputed game
that was being played over In the amazingly
unseasonable warmth and brilliance of the Oc
tober afternoon might be. the gr»at crowd, iost
as to all individual thought and feeitna; as it
had been for hours, was with th" players in
their wrath and in their sense of bitter Injustice
at being called upon to play over once -
well earned and cleanly won victory.
For the two hours of the fight th» sense of
the great united thing was there. Then, as the
last play was made there was a sudden change
in the sigh that arose. The forrf that bound
th« atoms was dissolved in a final moment of
rending grief, and as th» particles of the crowd
streamed out. it waa over— with the yame and
the great fight so gallantly made. on;y to b«
lost at last, with honor, truly, even in the last
ditch.
Clean cut and squ.iro was < 'hicago's^ victory
yesterday, and New York player* and loyal
rooters alike joined in their indignation at the
unknown man who thr^w a bottle at Chance,
the Chicago manager, as he, ran to the club
house, hurting him painfully in the neck. Tha
injury waa not serious, and Chance was aMe to
leave here, with the Chicago team for Detroit to
play the first game of the aeries for the
championship on Saturday.
The Cubs came to town yesterday morning
on the Twentieth Century Limited, which car
ried four extra Pullmans for the trip. The train
was in on time, despite the extra weight, and
the team left the same station at which they
had arrived in the morning last night, bavins
won the National League championship in th«
eleven hours between arrival and departure.
GATES OPEN TWO HOUR?.
As a matter of record, the gates of the Polo
Grounds allowing general admission to the game
were open for barely two hours yesterday, from
11 o'clock until 1. Yet in that time every un
reserved seat in the grounds was gobbled up,
and those who were to see the game from th»
field, behind the foul lines running down to
first base and third, were all In their places.
That represented an attendance of more than
twenty thousand alone, making allowance for
the new section of the grandstand, which was
used, partially completed, for the first tim and
gave seats of a sort to twenty-five hundred
more fan.«.
At 1 o'clock both the .main gates in Eighth.
avenue and those leading to the chute from the
elevated station were closed. Many forced their
way into the chute from the elevated platform
despite the efforts of policemen, and found them
selves cut off from escape. They could not get
out at the bottom, and the crowd that pressed
upon the gates above made it impossible for
them to return by the way they had entered.
Most of those who were hemmed in in this way
held i tail ltd seat tickets or boxes, and wcrt>
bitterly indignant at th.- complete failure of
