Mc C.mw instantly began to practice while Mathewson coiitltiu.il on his way to th" brn.h. tin- band plavlng "Hall to the Chief and HIk .Six receiving an ovation that he in vr will forget During Hie hatting and ft.-lili ntr priutke h the two teams thi; crowd was all at tention, and many spectacular pitis were wildly nppl.iudfd. When It came time to warm up the pitchers llaik sent out .lo Hush to keep I'lank company. Iluili had .inked .Mirk to hold Mm in reset ve In i ac the 'ii.irtn should get on to I'lank, and Mark an a compliment to the ) nitric pitcher told him to get his arm r.ady. Whether Mark would have suhnttluteit Hush In the event of disaster In a tUis lion that nobody except the tall man ager can answer Hut during various mages of th' game (arrnll llrown and lloh Shawk' were busy pitching to catchers In the outlleld. Matty warmed up alone. He was the 'Hants' l,it hope. After lie hud begun his task Mciiraw ordend T.sre.m to ke i limbered up. and later nut Kromme to tho out Meld for similar exernse Hut a It turned out no relit f pitchers rtr needed. It was a notewnrth) fait that during the five gam.s Mark did not use more than nine men in anv mnlut. lie did not make a ihangc in .the rcgul.it lineup ixieptlnic the batteries and yesterdav lie assigned Schang instead of Lapp to re ceive I'lank s southpaw shoots. Mc'lt.iw, on the other hand, called upon extra pltchi rs, pinch hitters and othir substi tute In every cam. Plank was so effective that In th" first four innings the Hunts sent only twelve men to the i.it and not one of them rearhed first base. Whin Matty began hia task IMdle Murphy furnished n sur prise by hitting the first ball pitched where Kletclur could not handle It cleanly and it went for a hit "hiring bunted the third lull to Mathewson. who. with a powerful throw to Kletrher. forced Murphy. It was a nulck Anted pla and Matty was loudly cheered. Kddle Collins pasted the second ball Into rijth: Held for a rattliriK slnple and olrtrlns breezed around to third Pollow incr the M.ickiati policy of hitting at the first Rood ball Haker 'whaled awav at Matty s first" offerlns and sent a whiz zinc liner s.piareh Into Huron's hands. The moment the ball was cauKht old in iIiik (or the plate Hums placed him self and made a tremendous thtow to McLean It fact the ball had n much power behind it that it sailed two feet higher than McLeans head and the blK catcher knmkid It down while Oldrlnir slid undtr him in safety Collins sprinted to s'cond on this pla and the fans were up In arms. Mclnnis. with two strikes and a ball, whipped a rolllcklnc Kround-r to Herzoj?. who made a neat stop Just as Collins came tunning towatd him from second. Collins turned back and was nlpp'l as he slid Into the middle sack on Herzog's quick throw to Larry Iioyle and the score, waa 1 to 0. Plank pitch. d elqhtein balls befote Hcr zog. lJle ami Kletch.r were retired in order in the (Hauls' flit frame. Inci dentally Doyle was robbed of a base hit when Karrv made a m.iciuticeiit stop of a tapld grounder near sei ond base and got the ball to Mclnnis In time to settle the Hants' captain While Kletcher was at the bat he made mine sort of a kick over a called strike and Ctnplre Klm readily suppressed him Matt.v s fadeaway worked like a charm n the second inning He snuffed out .strunk and Harrv. the former on a w nked grounder that Lioylc handled beautifulb Harrv raised ;i tly to Murrav. The dangerous Schanc, whose heavy batting was u potent fat tor In the series, had two balls culled on him and then swung mightllv twice in succession at Matty's drop. The fifth ball, however, nil smashed so hard by Schang that Matty barely got one hand upon It and deflected It to Kletcher, Schang receiving credit for a hit. Quakers In various parts of the grand stand applauded Plank when be came up, but the first ball delivered to him wan popped to Ilerzog and Mathewson wan heernl as he walked In from the box. Juat before Plank begun his work of fool ing the Giants In the second Inning MtGraw walked up to Klem and quietly lomplalned of Plank's footwork In the box. Klem In turn walked lo I'lank and asked him to deliver sen ml balls to Schang so that he might observe now the southpaw's left foot slipped away from the rubier. Plank good nuturedly com pllol with the umpire's request nnd Klem went bark to his position and ordered the game to pi in e i d. Close observes s could detect no changi- in Plunk'a method and thueaftir tlnie wan no kick. Two splendid plays wete made In thla period by Haker and .Mclnnis.

The moment lldrtie Murphy closed h . hands upon Lirry Doyle's tly hall, which ended the game and won the world' thjmplonshlp, the Joy of the Athletic.! knew no bi JU'lu. Kddle Collins tried to take the ball away from Murphy as a souvenir, but the latter ran pellinell to the bench, uhero Connie.

Mack ordered his p.a)ers to prepare fo. a hurried departure for Philadelphia, where a real c-letntton of their triumph was ln store for tr.em Mae it was In a talkative mood when asked is. sa sorn- thing about the series He sa.d ; "I regret that the Giants had soni of their best men hurt, for I bdiei tha' ne would have won Ju,t as .asliv if .M.-Giw had tie.. ti able to pu' his strong... t t.ai against us In a'l tnv expert! nee as a manager I n-v.. handled a strong, r hall club than this one I felt confident l.-.st spring that if Hetider and Plank could pitch as the) have done we would wi both the American League pedant and the world's .rles. i Connie Praise Plank.

He w.,uld , have shut the Glxnts out with but one hit If he hadn t muffed Murray s tly. which1 lost a sure double play But that was all , In the game and the fact that he held the Giants to two hits is proof enough that the old man ha a lot left. ' Hut while we won chiefly b-caue of Plank's gnat work I would like to say that Mathewson deserves almost as much praise. Matty never pitched better ball than ln tins Serbs. The breaks were against him to-da. however. Just as they favored him 'on Wedncda), and I don't hlanie New York fans for saying that to day's contest was a hard one to lose Matty Is not as old as Plank, but he Is no spring ehlcktn, a we all know, and like I'lank his ability to pitch with such splendid effect Is due to clean living "Matty I a credit to baseball and New York should be proud of him. Barring one or two little outbursts of temper on both sides due to high tension, the series was devoid of hard feelings and I wish to thank Manager McGraw for his sports manlike behavior after to-day's game. He wan the first man to reach me after the last play had been made, and bis ci.p. gratulatlons were deeply appieciated, I can assure you. Perhaps the Giants will meet us again next fall with a stronger team nnd p r haps they may beat us. Hut the un certainty of the national game may i.su't In two othir teams dashing for the world's chatnplunshlp Instead. "PROUD OF THEM" JOHNSON.
