Americans Game Played
in a Drizzling Rain
One Victory Gives
Flag to Nationals
Husgin?'? Team Had It
Won in rirst, Tied m
tbe Seventh and Ninth
By Granllanc. Rice
Through the rain, the mist and the
rrud, on a day as bedraggled as the
ffjujkeea and their waning hope, the
triumphant Giants yesterday moved to
within one I?st stride of the kingdemi
which tliey conquered just a year ago.
The hard-fighting, aggressive Giants
tigged tfi-ir third victory by the count
ot 4 to S, as 37,000 fans, pelted by a
gr&y October rain, ?saw the beaten
Yankees attempt to play a ball game
exclusively with their niud-coated feet
just as if the human head had nevet
been made for any purpose beyonc
adornment. The Yankees, by wild, care?
less and headless base running, tossec
of? at least three tallies in a battle
that they might have won with case i:
they had not insisted upon doing mos1
of their thinking with their laggin
and bewildered feet.
As the game ended, leaving the Gi
ants with three victorious assaults ant
only one more needed for the crown
the plaintive bleating of Yankee goat;
could be heard from far away?th(
mournful requiem of fading* Yanke?
hopes, r,ow darker than the heavy skj
beneath which they once more fell.
Meusel Forgets to Run
The parade of newly formed goat:
was ksaded by Bob Meusel. who re
fused to run out an infield tap in th<
fpventh ?lining, where Groh threw lov
and Kelly fumbled, costing a tally ii
the wake of Ward's ensuing home rui
into the left-field stands. By this direc
violation of the first principle of base
ball?which is "run 'em all out," Meuse
tossed away the most important run o
the afternoon.
But Meusel, even with this terrifi
boner, was not the lone goat in th
herd. He had enough company to kee
len goat herds busy. The wild, heat
less base running of Dugan, Pipp an
Schang cost other runs nnd helped t
build up the ruminating flock, wit
the dazed and astonished Babe Rut.
'bringing up the rear, once more th
victim of shrewd pitching that cam
unT cracking his mighty spine.
iT?*,*; Yankees were out-fought an
the ?Mikces were out-thought by
bettet, smarter ball club,, but for a
thai it required a new turn of lo*
sided versatility to throw away tl
fiDJ?. Nothing short of sheer genius ;
flie subtle art of losing could ha*
provided for that third defeat.
They had the muddy scrimmage wc
in the first inning, and refused i
take it as a gift.
They had it tied up in the sevent
?nd promptly backed away.
They had it tied again in tbe nint
only to arise once more upon the
hind legs and take a sock under tl
i'ft ear, with a sure draw in sight.
Three Runs Tossed Away
The human feet are made to n
with. Undoubtedly they have the
place in the scheme of things. Th<
are in no sense to be despised or le
et home. They have their uso in a
riving at one's destination, but th
are rarely supposed to direct the wa
?et, by adopting this quaint syste
with their feet in full control, t
Yanks merrily tossed away three t;
lies and possibly four or five.
In the somber wake of this last _
feat, the Yankees still can win o
by snagging four straight victori
from a ball club that has beaten tMc
eight out of the last nine decisi
tests, starting a yc-ir ago, for U
October the Giant- ?n five out of t
last six games, and they have now add
three more to f^ip string?one of t
most overwhelming clean-ups in t
long history of the autumn classic.

Held to Spell Disaster

side Three-Mile Limit
The ruling of Attorney General
Daughcrty that prohibition must be en?
forced on American vessels imposes
another handicap on United States
shipping, even when foreign steamships
are under the same restrictions within
the three-mile limit, according to
opinions expressed by shipowners yes?
terday. It was said that if the foreign
companies succeed in the effort to have
their ships exempted the result will
be nothing less than a disaster to fast
passenger liners under the American
The decision of the Attorney Gen?
eral, though it was expected, created a
feeling of dismay among American
steamship officials. It was pointed out
that T'nited States vessels will neces?
sarily he dry in all parts of the world,
while competing alien ships will have
no restrictions in bidding for passenger
H. H. Raymond, president of the
American Stea3iiship Owners' Associa?
tion, issued a statement saying that the
prohibition order, even as it viands,
imposes a great disadvantage upon
American vessels. He said that United
States liners now carry passengers be?
tween foreign ports in South America,
the Orient and elsewhere, and that they
will not be able to/compete with foreign
liners which are' not affected by the
law in this country.
Diversion of Business Feared
Pessimism among American officials
was mitigated a little by the fact that
the prohibition decision, for the pres?
ent at least, is to apply to foreign
ships in port here. It is believed that
if this stands before the Supreme Court
the big foreign liners will find it dif?
ficult to arrange for liquor supplies on
the outward voyage, though they will
be able to stock up for the return
One result of the order which is
foreseen by local officials is a marked
development of Montreal, Quebec and
Halifax as ports of embarkation for
Europe, There is not much belief that
such steamers as the Olympic, Beren
garia and Majestic will abandon New
York for the Canadian ports, but prob?
ably will, during the tourist season,
call at Halifax for liquor supplies.
These cities also will attract many
travelers who desire to depart directly
upon vessels which are beyond the pale
of prohibition.
The Volstead act will have consider?
able effect on the immigration traffic
on American vessels, one official de?
clared. He pointed out that under the
law of Italy, which furnishes most of
the incoming aliens, wine must be
served with meals. United States ships
will not be able to comply with this
Another factor which is feared by
American companies is that there will
be a wide resentment against United
States liners which will make it still
more difficult to eempete in all traffic
Winter Cruising, Affected
Effect of**he new ruling upon win?
ter cruises on American liners is
awaited with some apprehension here.
During the off-season many of the fin?
est passenger ships are chartered to
tourist agencies. Among American
vessels in this list are the George
Washington, of the United States
Lines; the Resolute, of the United
American Lines, and other fast ships.
If they are not allowed to sell liquors
on journeys lasting several months it
is anticiDated that there will b? a sud?
den switch to foreign vessels in^simi
lar voyages.
Mr. Raymond yesterday gave out the
following statement in behalf of the
American Steamship Owners' Associa?
"This decision of the Attorney Gen?
eral, even with its inclusion of foreign
ships entering our waters, adds a fur?
ther serio-us handicap to American
passenger steamers in the foreign
trade. American steamers operating to
South America, to the Orient, and else?
where carry passengers between for?
eign ports, but they will be unable to
serve liquors, while foreign vessels
-will be free to do as they please. As
a result the merchants of foreign coun?
tries with whom we must build up our
foreign trade if we are to have any,
will travel on the ships of our com?
petitors, to our growing disadvantage
??To many of these people ight
wines are as food, and as they will not
be able to obtain wines on board Amen
can ships or to bring their wines witi*
them it is inevitable that they w.ll
fSrcgo patronizing American steamers
when foreign ships are available. This
Ts sure to have a detrimental effect
upon the development, of *?Jg.*g*
and thus upon American cargo-carry?
ing steamers. ,
?Moreover, the enforcement of pro?
hibition along the line advised by the
Attorney General will doubtless arouse
a widespread resentment against Amen

From the. Tribune's Washington Bureau
j WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.?Firm steps
? were taken to-day by the government
i toward obtaining strict enforcement of
I the Daugherty ruling against liquor on
?all trade-oceanic liners touching the
(United States. Chairman Lasker of
| the Shipping Board ordered the mast

should allow this grace. Tho letter
"Supplementing my letter of in?
struction of October 6, relating to,
the enforcement of the Eighteenth
Amendment and the prohibition en?
forcement act as applied to carriers
at sea, you will please direct United
States customs officfcils to give no?
tice to all shipping lines that pend?
ing the formulation of regulations
the enforcement of the prohibition
of transportation Of cargoes or ship
stores will not be practicable in the
case of foreign vessels leaving their
home ports or American vessels leav?
ing foreign ports on or before Octo?
ber 14, 1922. Any earlier attempt at
enforcement in the absence of due
notice and ample regulations would
be inconsistent with just dealing and
have a tendency to disrupt needlessly
the ways of commerce.
No English Protest Yet
"This delay in full enforcement
does 3iot apply to the sale of intoxi?
cating liquor on vessels sailing un?
der the American flag."
No word had been received to-night
at the State Department on the ex?
pected protest from the London For?
eign Office against the ruling or notifi?
cation from foreign shipping interests
of the institution of legal action to
prevent its enforcement.
The order issued by Chairman
Lasker and sent to all masters of Ship?
ping Board vessels said:
"Under a ruling by Attorney Gen?
eral Daugherty, the sale, transporta?
tion or possession of liquor on ships
entering American territorial waters
is prohibited by law. By direction
of the President I instruct you to
make sure that all intoxicating
liquors in the possession of ships op
e3-ated by you for the government,
and all liquors owned by officers or
members of the crews thereof, be re?
moved and surrendered to the proper
official representing the Treasury
Department immediately, where such
ships are now in their home ports,
or as soon hereafter as they shall
dock in their home ports, and there?
after there must be no liquor on
Disobedience Means Discharge
"If any officer or member of crew,
either on passenger or cargo ships,
is found thereafter to possess liquor
on ship, be shall be immediately re?
moved perr--.nently from the service
and his v .ion of the law reported
to the proper district attorney."
The National Merchant Marine As?
sociation, in a statement issued to?
night, declares the decision "must
handicap the development of liner serv?
ice under the American flag." Never?
theless, it adds, "it settles an issue
which seriously menaced the prospects
of the pending legislation to aid Amer?
ican shipping."
There is no longer the question of
opposition to the shipping bill on the
ground that subsidies would be paid
to American vessels selling liquor, as
all sales are prohibited. Foreign ship?
ping interests are expected to institute
legal action to prevent the enforcement
of the ruling without delay. Chairman
Lasker of the Shipping Board says that
one result of the decision may be to
make Montreal the destination of some
of the big foreign trans-Atlantic liners
and that on the Pacific Vancouver may
benefit by the changed conditions.
To Aid Shipping Bill
"This is a severe blow to the Ameri?
can merchant marine," Mr. Lasker said.
"Reports reaching Washington front
various sections of the country indi?
cate that there is a national realiza?
tion of the dangers that lie in any plat
to postpone action on the shipping bill
until the short session of Congress, be?
ginning in December. Elimination of
the extra session in November would
not only maHe it practically impossible
to have the bill passed by the present
Congress, but would be almost sure to
necessitate a special session next
spring to deal with general legisla?

Special Dispatch to Tim Tribune
TROY, Oct. 7.?Governor Miller wa
accorded an enthusiastic reception her
to-night on the first ?of his up-stat
campaign meetings. Before a crow
of several hundred persons in Musi
Hall he offered to "ask the people t
kick him out of office" if former G03
ernor Smith, his ?opponent in the Tac
can prove statements accredited to hi:
that the Miller administration has bee
actuated and controlled by "sinisti
special interests."
"He says that the particularly sini
ter group of special interests has :
fact controlled this administration, ai
that charge needs to be examined
Governor Miller said. "If it can 1
supported, if even the shadow of a ca
can be made in support of that charg
then I will say that I am not wortl
of the suffrages of the people ai
the sooner I am kicked out of offi
the better."
Replying to the statements in t.
Smith campaign speeches thus far th
his administration has been partie
larly favorable to the traction inte
ests, the telephone companies and t
water power grabbers, Governor M
1er pointed out that his record in <
fice has been marked by.
1. The appointment of a tram
commission which did away with t
multiplicity of fares over the same i
terests and now recommends ste
which will mean a five-cent fare,
against general increases and deter
ration of service in the Smith i
Cut in Telephone Rates
2. A state-wide investigation
telephone rates which has accc
pushed more in one year with 1
state-wide probe than the Smith Put
Service Commission accomplished
two years with a single case and
suiting in a slice of 10 per cent fr
the 20 per cent increase granted
telephone company in New York C
by the Smith commission, which
crease the telephone company did
even contest in the courts.
3. The development of power res
voirs of the state under state cont
whereas the Smith administration a
characterized by apathy in this
gard, with no practical effort to div
for the public benefit any of the hoi
power going to waste by the hundr
of thousands all over the state.
The hall was crowded despite
downpour of rain. Troy is a De?
cmtic stronghold, and James W. Fli
ing, the Democratic candidate for Si
Comptroller, is Mayor of the city. G
ernor Miller divided what he ten
the "special interests" affecting ?

typified as those seeking governm
which they believe will redound to
benefit of the people, and the other,
corporate interests, which, he cha
terized as "dark and sinister."

"One should be listened to and

said. "The other should not be liste

Rockefeller Jr. in Collision
On Steep Grade, but Is Unhurt
The fender of ?lohn D. Rockefeller
jr's. automobile was bent yesterday in
a collision in Tarrytown in which an?
other car was more badly damaged, the
results of which might have been far
more serious but for the presence of
mind of both drivers.
Mr. Rockefeller was driving his car,
the chauffeur being in the rear seat
with three of Mr. Rockefeller's chil?
dren. He was going north on Broad?
way. At Benedict Avenue, which
pitches down a steep glade to Broad?
way and is being used as a detour dur?
ing repairs to the White Plains Road,
Mr. Rockefeller saw a car coming
swiftly down the hill.
Earle Lohenstein, of 235 Post Road,
Rye, was the owner and driver of the
second car. As he started down the
Benedict Avenue hill he discovered
that his brakebands were burned out
or that for some other reason his
brakes would not hold the car.
At the speed at which they were)
traveling the two cars would have
crashed together at the foot of the
: hill. Mr. Rockefeller, ignorant of the
defect in the other's brakes, expected
momentarily to see him slacken speed.
Realizing this, Mr. Lohenstein waved
his hand in an imperative gesture to
Mr. Rockefeller to speed up and try to
clear the intersection first. Mr. Rocke?
feller responded promptly. His action
was not quick enough completely to
avoid a collision, however.
Mr. Lohenstein's car struck his rear
fender and sent the Rockefeller car
sliding to the curb. Both drivers got
out. Mr. Lohenstein explained the cir?
cumstances and they examined the
damaged cars. That of Mr. Rockefeller
was almost unhurt. Mr. Lohenstein's
was dented and twisted. When Patrol?
man Link showed up Mr. Rockefeller
told him it was a matter for insurance
companies to adjust and drove away
with the remark that the outcome was
i most fort?nate.
Allies Bar Turks From
Thrace Till Peace Pact
With Greeks Is Signed
Turks Violate Constantinople Zone,
Troop Movement Threatens Capital
CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 7.?Turkish infantry and cavalry, it is
announced, have violated the neutral zone around Ismid.
This is the first violation of the zone protecting Constantinople on
the Asiatic'side, and is regarded as a matter of first importance. The
Kemalists, however, have not yet advanced far enough to. come into
contact with the British troops in the outskirts <>f Constantinople.
The movement necessarily will attract attention at Mudania, as it
is contrary to the undei standing with the Kemalists that there shall be
no troop movements pending the completion of the Mudania negotiations.
But it has another and more important significance, it is recalled
that the Kemalists justified their violations of the Dardanelles neutral
zone on the ground that they had never recognized that zone nor par?
ticipated in its formation. But this excuse cannot be employed in the
case of the Constantinople zone, because that boundary was established
in agreement with the Kemalist authorities a year ago.
The dragomans of the Allied embassies protested this evening to
Hikmet Bey, the acting Nationalist official representative here, against
the violation of the neutral zcftie at Ismid.

Harried by public clamor and an un?

earlier blunders in the Hall-Mills mur?

in-law of the slain rector, to seven
hours of third degree examination.
They failed utterly. Late this after?
noon Timothy Pfieffer, formerly an as?

District Attorney's office in New York
and now representing Dr. Hall's widow,
registered a vigorous protest with
Prosecutor Beekman of Somerset
County against the methods employed
in the examination of Willie Stevens.
"My impression is," said Mr. PfierTer,
"that stupidity having fallen flat, they
are now resorting to brutal methods."
He asked for assurance that similar
treatment would not be accorded Mrs.

ty Detective Ferdinand David and sev?
eral others of the staff of Prosecutors
Strieker and Beekman. Willie climbed
in at their bidding and the chauffeur
speeded the car away. About an hour
later the machine drew up before the
courthouse in Somerville, the seat of
Somerset County. Protesting, Willie
was hustled from the automobile and
taken up into the tower of the court?
house. It was then about 8:30 or 9
o'clock. It was 2:30 this morning be?
fore tlie officials gave over trying to
break down Willie's story that he was
with his sister when she went to the
church to hunt for the rector the first
night he failed to come. home.
Fail to Shake His Story
Each one of the interrogators had a
typewritten memorandum of all the
questions that have been propounded
to Willie since the investigation be?
gan, along with his replies. Again and
again ho was made to go over his
story, but he never deviated from his
original statements. He was shown
and maxie to" hafidle the blood-stained
garmenfta of both Dr. Hall and Mm.
Mills. This ordeal did not disturb
Willie's aplomb.
Successful attempts were made to
arouse his anger in the hope that he
would blurt out some valuable bit of
information. At times Willie was so
enraged that he could only splutter, but
the authorities, it was learned, gained
not a scrap of information that will ?

Executive Said, Opposing
Proposal for Taft's Visit
The story of the great influence
which the lato Ambassador Page held
over the political destinies cf Wood
row Wilson, at the commencement of
the.latter's public career, is one of the
poignant revelations in "The Life and
Letters of Walter Hines Page," by Bur?
ton J. Hendrick (Doubleday, Page &
Co.), published yesterday.'
That Page was the man who brought
Wilson and Colonel House together
and who suggested to Wilson the reviv?
ing of the practice of Pr?sidents read?
ing their messages to Congress, is dis?
closed in hitherto unpublished chap?
ters of the work. It is a work of
many incidents centering closely upon
! the great affairs of the last ten years
i which saw the rise of the publisher
: stateman to a position in the inner
circle of international diplomacy.
Tells of Wilson and Taft Trip ?
Amon<f the interesting and histori?
cally important revelations are Mr,
Hcndrick's account of President Wil?
son's opposition to the sneaking trip
of ex-President Taft in England. It
contains also the inside account of the
dinner given bv the ambassador in
London during the great March drive
of 1918 find Mr. Page's Description of
the success which attended Secretary
Baker's visit to London in that year.
Relating incidents wherein Mr. Page
appeared in the role of advisor to
President Wilson, Mr. Hendrick
"Page had known Colonel House for
many years and was the advocate who
convinced the sagacious Texan that!
Woodrow Wilson was the man . . . On
election day Page wrote the President?
elect a letter of congratulation which j
contains an item of the greatest in- j
terest: 'The president reads (orj
speaks) his inaugural to the people.'I
this letter says: 'Why not go back to
th? old custom of himself delivering j
his messages to congress?" In an?
other letter to Mr. Wilson, shortly
after his election, according to the
biographer, Mr. Pago wrote: "You ask
me who I thought was the best man
for Secretary of Agriculture. Houston,
I should say, of the men that I know.
You will find my estimate of him in
the little packet of memoranda."
Another incident relates Mr. Page's
opposition to the inclusion of Secre?
tary Daniels in the Wilson cabinet:
" 'Why don't you think he is cabinet
timber?' asked Colonel House."
He Isn't a "Splinter"
"'Timber!' Page fairly shouted. 'He
isn't a splinter. Have you got a time?
table? When does the next train leave
for Princeton?" In a couple of hours
Page was sitting with Mr. Wilson,
earnestly protesting against Mr. Dan
iels's appointment, Mr, Hendrick re?
lates, but Mr. Wilson said that he had
already offered Mr. Daniels the place."
In a memorandum from London the
following year, dispatched to the Presi?
dent by way of Colonel House to in?
sure its safe arrival in Mr. Wilson's
hands, Mr. Page counseled the joint in?
tervention of the United States and
Great Britain in the affairs of Mexico.
"In October," the memorandum reads,
"the provisional recognition of Huerta
by England will end. Then this gov

PARIS, Oct. 7.?The demand of
tho Turks for immediate possession
of Thrace created another Near East
war scare to-day and drove Eng?
land, France and Italy into a joint
resolve to strengthen the hands of
the Allied military negotiators at
Mudania. The four points of their
decision are briefly as follows;
The Turkish army must not oc?
cupy Thrace prier to signing of a
Turco-Greek peace treaty.
The Greek troops in eastern
Thrace and the Christian civilian
population there which desires to
depart shall begin imm?diat?
evacuation under Allied super?
vision, with full assurances of pro?
tection alike to Turk and Greek.
After evacuation and during
the following month Turkish civil'
authorities and gendarmerie will
be permitted to penetrate the ter?
ritory under the supervision and
control of the Allied troops.
After a month of such adminis?
tration the Allies will abandon
control of eastern Thrace to tho
Turks and retire to the position
they now occupy at Tchatalja on
the east and the right bank of the
Maritza, in Grecian Thrace, on
the west.
France and Italy Approre
These terms were approved this af?
ternoon by the French and Italian gov
ernmentr; and wrre at ?>nr<* cabled :?>^B
London by Lord Curzon, the British WE
Foreign Secretary, with a virtual re- ?
quest for their acceptance by the Cabi?
Lord Cur7.on, in announcing the new
proposals, said that they "constituted a
formula for peace in the Near East."
The three powers reaffirmed their strict
adherence to the terms of their note of
two weeks ago to the Angora govern?
ment, which, in effect, re-established
Turkey in Europe in the event that the
Kemalists refrained from violation of
the neutral zones, did not attempt to
cross the Dardanelles and accepted the
peace conference program.
It was explained to-night that tha
revised term-' drafted hern by Curzon,
Poincare and ?ignor Galli, the Italian
Charge d'Affaires, marked a certain
concession to the Turks from the orig?
inal Allied note, which stipulated non
entry into Thrace until after the peace
treaty was signed. Under the new
terms the Allies will abandon control
of Thrace after evacuation of the
Greeks and civil population has been
completed and retire to the military
positions they now occupy, there to
remain ?in the event peace has not
been concluded?until the treaty is ac?
complished, when Turkish troops will
? enter.
It is believed the alteration will be
acceptable to Ismet Pasha, the Turkish
delegate at Mudania, and that the con?
versations can proceed to a point of
agreement on a peace conference at a
place still to be selected.
Allies to Hold Gal Jipo!!
To-day's decision means a delimita?
tion of the neutral zones, with the
British remaining at Chanak and the
Turks withdrawing slightly from their
present positions. The questions of
Gallipoli and the Straits remain to be
settled, but the Allied troops in any
event will remain at Gallipoli.
With the new instructions which will
be sent to General Harirrgton and th.
other Allied representatives now wait
, ing at Constantinople the position of
the powers becomes clear. It was Gen?
eral Karington's lack of precise in?
structions that held up the Mudania
meeting and caused the demand from
the Turks for a decision within twen?
ty-four hours. This led to the inter?
pretation in London that the Kemalists
were presenting an ultimatam, and
caused renewal of the talk of a crisis.
The diplomats did not attempt to
frame a formal reply to the Angor*
note, suggesting among other things
that the peace conference be held at
Smyrna on October 20 and that Russia
; be admitted. It was the subject ?2
? discussion, however, and the decision
was unanimous that it would be Im?
possible to invite Moscow to attend!.
Two Conference? Suggested
Tha counter-suggestion was made
that two conferences be held?-the first
as originally planned with the Allies,
Turkey, Greece, Jugo-Slavia and Ru?.
mania attending. At this gathering
the principle of the freedom of the
Straits would be proclaimed. At the
second parley, to devise the actual
method of controlling the Straits, the
League of Nations would be in charge
and Russia, the other Soviet republic?
and Bulgaria might be invited.
This plan would evade an ooligatlon
which would be tantamount to recogni?
tion of Russia, a step which the Aille?
are not yet ready to take. It is prob?
able that the date for the first confer?
ence will be November 1.
The meeting als. was unan-moua it?

proposed parley. Signor Galli proposed
