FANS BEWARE! COUNTERFEIT
TICKETS HAVE BEEN PRINTED
Warning Issned Against Buying
Any Pasteboards Unless
Seller Is Known.
According to Information furnlahed to
The Bvs yesterday by persons Identified
with the New York National League Club,
hundred! of counterfeit tickets for the
world's series at tha Polo O rounds will
be offered for sola by speculators to-day
nnd to-morrow. The spurious tickets, so
the story goes, were printed two days
bro and when tho fans line up to buy
reserved sents at tho Polo Grounds at
U o'clock this morning, an attempt will
be made to get rjdo of the fake pnate
hoards. The Now York club's private
detective force In charge of Seymour
Henutler and the Tollce Department will
be on the nlert In Eighth avenue, north
of 155th street, when reserved and un
resorved seats are placed on sale at the
I-ok oillcf-s. Persons caught trying to sell
tickets to fans in the llnoa will be ar
rested. The New York club, therefore, warns
the public to buy no tickets of any kind
ecept at the Polo Grounds booths. The
ticket takers will be able to distinguish
the counterfeits without trouble iin hold
ers of such tickets will be turned away.
The National Baseball Commission has
made such a successful fight against the
scalpers that the counterfeiting of tickets,
It Is nrgtied. Is a last resort. When the
sale of 4,000 reserved seats at S3 each
begins this morning. It Is almost a sure
thing that some of the Mg speculators
will secure a number of tickets, how
many nobody can tell. It was learned
yesterday that a combination of theatre
ticket agencies would have at least .100
men In line, each equipped with 1! for
two tickets This plan, It was declared,
had been decided upon to accommodate
demands from regular patrons, nut the
ideuths will try to spot the persons sent
up to buy the sents,
A man with n beard marched up to the
reserveil neat box ndlce of the Polo
Grounds shortlv after 11 o'clock last
