ttrMlon which the police seemed to enjoy
sa much ns the leval public.
The band had shitted Its base today.
It moved Around from the rear of first
base to a point back of the left Held
foul line and between third base nnd the
fence. It was a position of some nat
urnt strength, but was exposed to the
enniading Are of right-handed hitters.
But they were a gamo crowd those music
men. The white baseballs tore up turf
Around them flashed through them,
busted a flute and otherwise cut them,
but not a man flinched.
A It was after 1 o'clock when the Ath
letics finally tore themselves away from
Ban Johnson and came out on tho field.
The Macks hammered at rlRhthtidcJ
ehoots during their batting practice in
prparatlon for Rudolph. Oldrlng. who
has yet to get a hit In the series, planted
one In the left field bleachers.
The National Commission and the clubs
split up the money for the remaining
games, If there are any.
It was 1:45 when the Royal Hooters, In
eluding several women, appeared, headed
by their band, paraded half way across
the field, and then swarmed Into their
scats. Former Mayor Fitzgerald led
them as usual. Fitzgerald was without
his two-gallon hat and cutavay for the
first time. A soft hat and business suit
The Athletics were extremely earnest
In every moe they made during their
practice. 11 was do or die for them today.
The game was called at 2:01 p. m.
The fighting spirit and sameness of
the Btaves has drawn to thorn the ad
miration of the entire baseball world.
They do not know when they are whipped.
Their enthusiasm and pull-together spirit
rivals that shown by college teams. There
is alwajs a slap on tho back and a word
of praise when one of the Braves gets
away with, a good play. The run-makers
are hugged and danced about tho dugout
when they return to the bench. Such
antics as "Rabbit" Maranvllle cut on the
first-base coaching line In the tenth jes
terday were probably never seen before
on a ball field. He did his best to
worry Bush by yelling, screaming, leap
ing In the air, waving his cap. throwing
himself on the ground, and, plowing up
yards of dirt as he ran, slid and fell
about the Held.
The Athletics showed to better advan
tage yesterday than during any game of
the series. But they are plaving dogsedly
as though In desperation, and not with the
dash and fire of confidence.
Amos Strunk will be out of the Athletic
line-up today and during the remaining
games that may bo pla- ed. Strunk
strained his head In some ivov and It Is
badly swollen. Walsh took his place In
eentrefleld csterday. Strunk connected
for two hits In the first gamo of the
series, but was not much satisfaction to
the team in the second, striking out
As a team, the Athletics have gathered
but 15 hits In three games against 27
for the Bra-es. Oldrlng and Barry have
yet to get a hit The Mackmen have
connected for only seven extra-base
knocks, four of them coming yesterday
when Murphy doubled twice and Mclnnis
and Baker once each.
The Braves have driven out eight ex
tra base hits, their total, of course being
swelled by the hefty swatting of Hank
Oowdy. Hank has, slashed out six hits
and drawn four bases on balls His hits
Include three doubles, a triple, home run
and single.
" While Hank was setting the baseball
J'svorld afire with his bat work and catch
ins yesterday, his mother and fatln-r,
who had come from their home In Co
lumbus, O., were In the grandstand
watching him. Hank didn't know it. The
parents feared if he know they wen
present it would make htm nervous, so
they slipped quietly into town, obtained
scats fram President Gatfney and saw
their boy in his role of a world's series
When Hank was presented with a gold
watch, sent by admirers In Columbus yes
terday, he did not know that It was his
father and mother who had brought the
gift to Boston.
Tho last ray of hope has vanished for
Athletic rooters. They are prepared for
anything now. Some one bet 5 tM ilfri

Doctor Copp admitted that his investi
gation produced no results.
Lillian Hummell. a sister of the dead
man, said he often complained of ill
treatment, but was unable to namo the
attendants. She said he complained of
being hurt in the chest.
When the Coroner charged his Jury he
pointed out that the evidence indicated
somebody had kneeled on Hummell's
The attendants asserted that Hummell
frequently became violent and had filthy
personal habits. Dr. George Ferris, a
physician at the Institution, said he had
seen Hummell indict bruises on himself
and throw himself about his room.
Ill treatment was denied by Dallas, one
of those held, who was in charge of the
ward In which Hummell wa3 kept. He
said he never saw Hummell mistreated,
but once he found the man with both
eyes blackened. He denied that he ever
struck Hummell.
Coroner's Physician Wadsworth testl
fied that in his examination of the dead
man's body he found four distinct in
ternal injuries. The causa of death he
gave as a hemorrhage following these in
ternal injuries. The Jury found a ver
dict to that effect and in consequence
held the six men.
Greenaway testified that the Friday
night before the man died the attendants
had had a great dual of trouble with him.
He admitted that he did not like the
task of taring for Hummell, because of
his habits. Because of these habits, he
said, he allowed the patient to walk about
the room Instead of keeping him confined
to bis bed.
Greenaway accounted for the marks on
Hummell's cheat by saying that the man
while at liberty in the room might have
rubbed himself on the chest. At this the

Loss of Yesterday's Game
Kind to Take Heart Out
of Any One, Writes Cham
pion Second Sacker.
"We Still Have Fighting Chance,
and We Are Going to Make
the Most of It," Shows Spirit
of the Team.
BOSTON, Oct. IS. The first one wasn't
eo bad. the second one hurt consider
ably, but this last one good night! As
1 said In my previous stories. It doesn't
hurt so much to take a good beating, but
when you have one all but won and then
they come along and take It away from
you, believe me. this Is the kind that la
liable to take the heart out of some of
the best clubs. There Is no use of mv
continuing to appear optimistic. When
they had us two and nothing that was
a different story. But now that they have
three chalked up against us there Is no
use denying we are fighting In our last
ditch. ,
I have played In numerous world's
series games and have faced many cru
cial situations, but none that I can recall
can hold a candle to some of the tense
moments that were necessarily experi
enced In that game of yesterday. Mental
lapses, errors of omission and lost oppor
tunities were numerous enough, and for
me to pick out any one play that might
have turned the tide Is a pretty difficult i
undertaking. i
Throughout the game one quality which
the Boston team exhibited and which j
cannot go unmentloncd by me stood out
prominently. The everlasting persever
ance and doggedness with which the
Braves kept after us cannot help but be
admired by the most partisan fan. From
the very onset our club got the Jump,
but It seemed as though no matter how
much we forged to tho front we could
not shake off our rivals.
In the very first inning Eddie Murphy :
put us In the running with a pretty i
double over the third bag Oldrlng
promptly sacrificed, Tyler to Schmidt, I
and, advancing Murphy to third from
whence he scored when Connolly muffed
the writer's fly, although the chances
are he would have tallied any way had
not an error been committed. .After Mc
lnnis walked, putting myself on second
and "Stuffy" on first, the situation look
ed threatening for the faltering Tyler,
but I am deserving of severe criticism
for getting pinched off second, as it
helpr Braves' pitcher out of a tight
Maranvlllo started trouble for us In the
very next round, when he worked Bush
for a pass and stole second cleanly. In
splto of the fact that Schang's throw
was a perfect one and like a rifle shot.
This lapse on the part of Bush In giving
the Boston players a running start on
the bases aided materially In his event
ual downfall. Gowdy. the enigma in this
series for us so far, was on the Job as
usual with his big black bat, and hla
screaming liner into the left field seats
easily enabled the rabbit to register tho
tying count at the home station.
Beginning our second, Tyler was a more
difficult man for us to fathem. In this
round we didn't threaten at all, and like
wise in the third we never reached first.
The fourth, however, showed us more
to advantage, and we forged to the front
once more. With two down, Mclnnla got
his firet hit of the series, a corking dou
ble Into the left field crowd. Walsh, who
was playing centre in place of Strunk,
the latter being Incapacitated by a felon
on his left hand, came to time with a
pretty slnslfc between Deal and Maran
vllle, and Mclnnis counted run number
two for us.
We did not hold our advantage long,
as the Braves came right back In their
half and evened the count again, and
this time, likewise, after two men had
been retiied. vHh Schmidt on second,
the result of his single and a Helder'j
choice, the luck still clung to the Boston
contingent when Maranville's Texas
leaguer fell safo in centre, and Schmidt
Jimmy Walsh made a great try for this
ball. sllJing on his stomach to make tne
catch, but it fell Just bevond his reach
In the fifth. e again threatened, but
that was all, as Murphy was left
stranded on second after his double, when
Oldrlng fanned. In their half, Boston
sot one man on base, but that was all.
Our sixth started off auspiciously. An
apparent rally was nipped In the bud
when Baker hit Into a fast double play,
livers to Maranvllle to Schmidt. His out
at first was a questionable one to our
nay of thinking, as he appeared to have
the ball beaten fully a step.
From this point on until the lth noth.
ing much exciting took place, but what
the intervening Innings lacked in excite
ment this round in question amply made
up the difference, and I will venture to
say that populace got their money's
worth in this inning alone. Wally Schang
began what looked like certain victory
for us with a single to left. After Bush
had been retired on strikes, his attempts
at sacrificing being very Ineffectual. Ed
die Murphy bounced a sharp one to Tyler,
who temporarily lost his bearing and
made the play to second too late to catch
the fleet Schang, who was stealing on
the pitch, and everybody was safe.
Tyler deflected Oldrlng's sharp knock
just enough for Evers to throw him out
at first, although the other two advanced
on tha out.
A walk to me filled the bases and
"Bake" then put us in the vart with a
drive too hot for Evers to handle. Right
here Eddie Murphy showed his alertness
by sneaking home cleanly and putting
us two to the good while Evers held tha
ball. It looked like w would get a cou.
pie more when Mclnnis lined sharply to
left centre, but Whitted made a good
catch and our scoring was over for the.
With only three men to retire, our
chances looked very rosy, but hereupon
that man Gowdy again apppesred upon
the scene The very first ball Bush
seived up to him he put far over WaUh's
head, and it bounced Into the centre field

Nothing doing for either side In the At tills time tho Athletics had nicked
eleventh. James having taken up where Rudolph for llvo hits. This Is as many as
Tyler left off and Bush still continuing
for us.
In the 15th Eddie Murphy again offered
us an opening, but neither myself nor Mc
lnnis was equal to the emergency, Baker
having been walked purposely In the
meantime. It was fast getting dark when
Boston went to bat In their half, and it
was a cinch that this would be the last
InnliiK that could possibly be played.
"Lanky" Gowdy was the first man up.
and ns it turned out he misht Just as
well had been the last, because It is to
him, and to him alone, that the Braves
owe nine-tenths of their present advan
tage over us .lust as though It were a
habit, he doubled to left.
"Pay, for the love of Mike, what can't
you hit?" asked Barry of the tall mask
man is he smilingly JoRged to second.
"We pitch you curves and you straighten
them out. fast ones look like duck soup
and now you kill n slow ball. What do
you hit during the season?" I overheard
our shortstop ask Gowdy. In the interim
that followed, while the board of strategy
got In Its work on the Boston bench when
Gilbert was pent up to hit in place of
James. "Oh, about IW," smllincly re
plied the Jubilant Brae. "Well. I guess
you must have saved all your hits for us,
judging the way you are Kolng ag.ilnst
us," was nil that Barry could answer."
It was decided by us to pass Gilbert
Intentionally, which would enable us to
make a force play at third, as it was al
most a 100 to 1 shot that Moran, the fol
lowing batter, would bunt Our deduction
of the play was O. K., but its execution
n, g., as Bush was late In getting over
to the third base line to field Moran'a
bunt, and his throw, which ought to have
retired Mann, runntng for Gowdy, at
Baker's station was necessarily hurried
and wild, and as a result game No. 3 was
gone by the board, as f3r as the Athletics
are concerned. There is no good of mak
ing any excuses, because the result will
remain unchanged regardless of what
might have been.
I am only repeating when I say that
it was Gowdy w-ho was again mainly
instrumental In our downfall, and to htm
is due the lion's share of the credit for
Boston's victory. In this world's series
we have learned what It is not to get
the breaks, although I guess it is true
of every team that loses to think that
same way. Bush pitched a creditable
game, a game which ought to have won
for him nine times out of ten. In the
fielding line we again more than held
our own, but timely wallops were again
noticeable by their absence, whereas their
consplruousness was only too evident
among the Braves for our comfort. If
the Braves can win three straight why
can't we? This is the way to look at It.
I guess I must be a hard loser, because
even If we should lose tomorrow I would
never be convinced they are a better ball
club than ours We have a fighting
chance left, and you can bet that we are
going to make the most of it. and If we
lose we are at least going to have the
satisfaction that we died a-fightlng.

Locals Hope to Make Good Show
ing Against Navy.
Tho first real serious preparation of
tho week bv the University of Pennsyl
vania football team for the gamo on Sat
urday with the Nav.il Academy began
this afternoon, when after a long pre
liminary drill Head Coach George 11.
Brooke lined up his varsity regulars
against both the frcuhman eleven and a
reinforced scrub team. All of the regu
lars with the exception of Tucker and
Moffet, who aro still bruised ns a result
of the Lafayetto game, were in the line
up. Tho caus-e assigned for the double
scrimmage was that the scrubs haven't
been strong enough to give the regulars
good practice. The sciub eleven for this
ufternoon was strengthened by the addi
tion of several of the varsity substitutes.
Head Coach Brooke has about de
cided to use Matthews permanently In
the backflcld In place of Moffet or Avery.
This big back, who has been shitted
aoout from end to the backlleld, has
been cut out of a position on the end
by the splendid work of Urquhart and
Murdock, for as long us these two men
keep up tho standard of woik they set
on Saturday they are suro of their posi
tions. But Moffet hasn't beer, playtin;
tho sort of game looked for. and the
coaches think .Matthews will fill the bill.
There Is going to be an Interesting duel
between Matthews and Vreelaml for the
honor of klcklns Pennsylvania's goals
from Held. Matthews made quite a repu
tation as a drop kicker last fall and In
the spring practice Brooke thinks he has
the disposition to develop Into a star
kicker. But Vreelaml, who has now won
a permanent place In the backlleld, Is
also n good field goal-kicker, though his
specialty Is plac kicking rath.v than drop
kicking. The fact that Vreeland placed
nine field goals in a slnslp season has de
cided tho coaches to give him a chance,
and that will likely come In the Navv
The Pennsylvania football manage
ment has extended an Invitation to the
midshipmen to attend the game on Sat
urday afternoon. The fact that the
Army-Navy gamo has been called off
has given them the idea that posslblv the
Naval Academy authorities will relent
and let them have this trln awav (mm

One Consolation in Their Hour of De-

I BOSTON, Oct. 13. Today's victory by
I the Boston Braves Is the flrnt time In the
' history of baseball that nny team has
, won tho world's championship by taking
the first four consecutive games of ths
I The feat of tho Braves was a fitting
climax to the record they made In th
National League pennant race when the,
, came from behind the New York Olim,
1 nnd won the flag in a driving finish.
In the world's series which came tj

1100,000 Infield and a manngor known u
the master strategist of baseball, seemjd
to bo outclassed, but they died hard.
In today's game the Athletics outhlt
the Braves, but the latter succeeded lh
bunching thrco hits In tho fifth Inning,
' with the score tied at 1 each, and scorod
two runs. These wcro sufficient to win
tho game and tho championship.

run In the Fccond half of tho fourth

' It up by scoring ono run In the first huf
or the fifth. In tho second half of the
fifth, however, the Braves clinched their
Manager Mack, of tho Athletics, caused
' a surprise by sending one of Ills young
pitchers, Shawkey, In to pitch against
the Braves. It had been supposed al
most to tho last mlnuto that he would
give another chance to "Chief" Bender,
who was knocked out of the box In
the first game. Shawkey pitched well
for four Innings, but In the fifth the
Braves got to him. As a result he was
withdrawn In the sixth Inning, and Her
bert Pennock, a M-yeor-old left-hander
succeeded him. '
Though Pennock was picked up from an
Independent ball team in 1913 and had
practically no minor league cxcprloncc, he
acquitted himself well In today's game as
a result of the tuition he had received at
tho hands of Mack. The Braves scored
two hits off his delivery in the sixth In

Dick Rudolph, who also defeated them In
tho first game of the series. He appeared
to be unable to hold them as cleverly to
day as he did in the first contest and wai
able to strike out only six men, as agalnit
eight on his first appearance. Rudolph's
control was almost perfect; he gave only
one base on balls.
Today's game was the fastest that
was played In the series, as yesterday's
was the slowest. No scoring was dons
In the early Innings.
