& o- $ & &- iA 1 I- '^m^n^w^MM^M^^w^M -Monday ODDS COMING DOWN ON CHICAGO CUBS 3etters Think There May Not Be .^Such a Runaway i After All. fpecial to The Journal. gy' Chicago, Oct. 8.Men who have been offering fe, !o8d3 of 3 to 1 that the cubs would defeat the f#f?white Stockings in the world's championship baseball series have cut down the odds, and &*-''"aovr 2 to 1 is the best offered, and it is predict-bus 1 KJS. d that odds around 8 to 5 will be the best J.'| .sj^offered by the cub admirers. With a team wade un of substitutes and a Sick man in the box in Dr. White, who has not T. pitched for a long time, the pennant-winners jumped onto Pitcher Bemiard, one of the best of La Joie's staff, Friday and felt him for fifteen hits, among which were Sprinkled doubles and triples. Then it was that layers of odds at such ridic ulous prices began to think seriously, and finally cut down to 8 to 5. Even one enthusiastic South Side fan is enthusiastic enough to say that the odds ought to be in favor, of the white stock ings, since Springfield and Kankakee got away with victories over the cubs and Youngstown held the hard hitters for eight innings wltn only one hit and no runs. Dope. Dope, Dope. Also men are arguing the point that the white Blockings are as good a team as .the New York giants, and better than Pittsburg or Brooklyn or any of the National league teams except Qhicago, based upon the percentage columns. The Chicago American league team has lost the same number of games as the giantsflfty sts. Thoy have won ninety-three, while the giants have won ninety-six. Xhey have won one more and lost four less than the Pittsburg team, and that makes the white stockings look pretty good. Reserved seats for the championship games scheduled at Comiskey's South Side grounds were Old out Saturday within a short time after Secretary Fredericks opened the window at the hall park. President Comiskey watched the sale to see that no applicant pot personally known to him should get more than one box. He is deter mined to minimize the speculators' evil, which developed last evening when scalpers placed on sale box seats for the West Side ball park at prices which were prohibitive for ordinary fans. Enough checks for twice the,number of box seats available for the whitesox were in a big box at Mr. Fredericks' elbow when the sale began at 10 o'clock, but many who had sent in their requests by mail were disappointed as they did not appear to redeem their order. Mr. Comiskey said that only by producing cash could the applicants get their tickets. Beserves Are Scaroe. As in the case of the West Side grounds, many rooters who have been purchasers of tickets all season got In on the ground floor and swamped the officials for requests for post-season tickets. The public had only a momentary chance to get a reserved ticket. All that is left to the great army of fans that wish to wateh the teams battle this week is -the old fashioned opportunity to go to the parks at 12 o'clock each day and stand in line for tickets to the stands and bleachers. NORTHWEST FOOTBALL NOBTHTIELD VICTOES. Wthfleld, Minn., Oct. 8.The Northfleld high school team played its first game of the season with the Faribault high here Saturday afternoon, winning out by a score of to 10. The local team will play the North high school of Minneapolis, at Minneapolis, next Saturday afternoon. v*-' XOOSE GAMETT HATWAED. Hayward, Wis., Oct. 8.The local high school team defeated Washburn high Saturday by a score of 40 to 0. The visitors were clearly out classed, and at no time was Haywnrd's goal line in danger. Campbell, left half for Hay ward, made three place kicks from the field. AV: TIE AT OASS LAKE. Cass Lake, Minn., Oct. 8.The prettiest game of football ever witnessod in this city took place Saturday when the local high school team met the crack eleven from Bemidjl. In forty minutes of play neither team was able to score, altho the ball seesawed from one end of the field to the other. The game was played according to the new rules, and punting was the great feature, both sides resorting to this means of advancing the ball. In tho last half the locals pulled off a forward pass which brought a gain of twenty yards. DAWSON "WAS WEAK. 9anby, Minn., Oct. 8.The local team defeated the Dawson high school eleven here Saturday by 'a score of 42 to 2. The game was too much one sided to be interesting and the visiting team made a very poor showing. TEAM HAS~RECOVERED. Two Harbors. Minn.. Oct. 8.Having fully recovered from the severe defeat at the hands of the Duluth high school a week ago, the Y. M. O. A. Junior football team defeated the Jfelson Dewey high-school team of Superior laSt Saturday by a score of 10 to 0. The halves were 20 and 15 minutes in length and 'one touchdown was scored in each. Th efirst came easily, but the second was only after a hard Struggle. No goals were kicked, the ball going wide of the mark each time the locals had a chance. INDEPENDENT FOOTBALL The fame between the Beavers and Ramblers at Minnehaha park yesterday afternoon resulted in a tie, neither side being able' to score In the forty minutes of play. The battle was a clean affair, and only one penalty was in flicted. The Beavers hod a shade the best on weight, but were a little weak on offense. The Ram blers were fast, and Coach firtl's work showed up to edvantage. "Jack" Molltar, Christopher son and Brenner were the best ground-gainers for the Beavers, while Frank Kurke, Rooke, Hanson and Chicken starred for the Ramblers. "Manager Lopdell and his Summit team were on hand for their game with the Capitols of St. Paul, yesterday afternoon, but the latter failed to put in an appearance. The Summits claim the game, and are ready to meet all other teams at their weight. The Gaghagens were defeated by the Victors yesterday afternoon on the latter's grounds. The Victors bad the best of the argument, as they outweighed their opponents. _____ The Mohawks have secured the Steel & Ma chinery grounds for their games. The fol lowing players will please report for practice Tuesday evening at Twenty-first avenue and Thirty-second street: Tressel, M. Oetrem, B. Ostrem, Nolan, Hansen, Brickson Cafarella, Larson, Lamb, Jackson, Northrup, Bristol and Wold-. The Mohawks would like to ar range games with 185-pound teams in the city.

Special to The Journal. Uses the Machine. Stagg is giving the Uneinen all kinds of work to speed them up. The oharglng machine Is used daily, while the big fellows are practiced daily in the backfield with the hope that work with lighter and fleeter men may teach them to start more rapidly. While the line prospects are anything but bril liant the candidates for fn'e backfield have been a source of great pleasure to Stagg. Walker is back iu harness and is faster than ever. Steffen, the nearest approach to Eckersall that has even been shown at Marshall field, is making good daily at right halfback. Merrlam, ladings. Rhode and Mefford are also showing great form in the backfield. One thing about the maroons at this time can be stated as certainty, and that Is that Stagg will have a backfield that will be able to continue the great work of last year's championship quar tet. Funger of last year's freshmen and Fergu son, who by the way is a greater line-bucker than Bezdek, but a-weakling on the defensive, are candidates for fullback. Gerry Williamson, who subbed for Bezdek last year, haG not re ported for practice as yet. He probably will not be back to college, so the fight for fullback will probably be between Ferguson and Finger unless Stagg decides to use Walker at that place. In the latter case, there will be no struggle at all for the place. Some Back Fielders. Of the new backfield men, Rhode, Merrlam and Iddings look good enough for any varsity. The former is a new man at football. He is short and fast, but weighs about 170 pounds. He is developing rapidly and should gain' a place as an end or a back before the season ends. Hewitt of last year's subs and big Ed Parry look like certainties as ends. They will be the 'first set in all probabilities, but Stagg means to have several ends, as he believes that the open style of game will necessitate th use of two or three sets of ends during a champion ship game. *f' He has called on the sprinters of the univer sity to come out for the end positions. Quigley, the quarter-miler, and Barker, another 440-yard man, are being tried at end. Barker was a sub-quarter last year, but end looks like his place for this year. The largest squad that ever tried for a .maroon' team has been working daily. More than fifty men have been out, and'more are expected to join the squad. Four elevens have been k6nt -working daily, and a large* squad of coaches m\s been busy instructing the new men In the possi bilities of the new rules. Leo De Tray, the greatest halfback that Chi cago has had since the days of Hersberger. has joined the coaching squad. He is in school, but will "not play this year. He has practically lost the sight of one eye as a result of the acci dent which befell hta in last year's North western game. Walker has also been aiding Speik, Stagg and Eckersall in the coaching. Keeps Gates Shut. But you wouldn't know it was- feS"*.fife.'?- ^^^V'Hi^uWjifi-f rt r-aPlKs The work has been behind closed gates for the most part, and little is known of the new plays that Stagg has up his sleeve. TJae secret practice was rendered necessary by the near ness of the Purdue game. Stagg has been trying to develop something like a system of attacked defense for the game with the boilermakers, which will be decided at Marshall field Oct. 20. Just what his plays are'no one knows. '-'He- is expected to have some offensive stuntsi that will overcome the ten-yard rule, however, as,he has repeatedly stated that the problem of the game this year is not one of offense, but of defense. At the open sessions the practice stunts -have reminded the spectators of a good basketball game, in which long passes and running catches predominated. Plays with three, four and even five forward passes have been used with many rumbles. Realizing that a team that can handle the ball cleanly will be a winner this year, Stagg has spent a great deal of his time training his mens to catch difficult passes while on the run and to handle punts rapidly as necessitated by. the on-side kick rule. ...The. on-side kick will probably be a big part of Chicago's offense. Stagg has tried this play repeatedly, using every man in the backfield to boot the ball for a short distance, in order that the ends, may seize it as it touches the ground. Eckersall and Steffen are particularly adept in placing these kicks. MOTORING BALLOONIST COMING TO AMERICA By Publishers' Press. London, Oct. 8.Among the passengers on the Baltic for America Oct. 10 will be C. S. jRolls, son of Lord Llangattack, who recently won the Isle of Wight tourist motor race, the blue ribbon event of Europenn motordom. Young Rolls Is consequently the most talked about man In England. He is secretary, too, of the Aero club, and has made a plucky effort to win the James Gordon Bennett balloon trophy. His busi ness Is that of a car manufacturer, and it is in this connection that he is going to America. Mr. Rolls is but 29 years old and unmarried. His father has enormous wealth, however, and this will probably save him from the charge of heiress-hunting In the United States. TKtMSr'dori.-HliM -*fe rf^ v, Chicago, Oct. 8.With one, wet-k' of actual practice, the maroou prospects do not look' as rosy as they did on the ante-season dope. While the squad looks good in many "ways, there been onu feature of the early work that Is anything but encouraging to Coach Stagg and maroon followers. it is the same old story for Chicago. There is an abundance of backfield material with not enough linemen of ability to protect the backs for the intricate formations which will be on the maroon line of attack under the new rules. Stagg has only two first-class linemen at pres ent round whom to mould a lot of forwards, wrlch will be capable of withstanding the gopher and cornhusker rush lines. Year after year Stagg has been confronted with the same problem. Last year he started the season with only ordinary materials for his line, from which he developed an excellent lot of fast charging forwards: He will be lucky if his efforts this year result in an ordinary line. Russell and Parry are tho only regulars of last year's forwards who are out for- the team. It seems to be the plan to use Parry at end, BO Russell is left as the only first-rate lineman left. Noll Sure of Team. Noll, who was a substitute on last year's team, is working hard for the team. He is sure of a regular berth, but he will full far short of filling the shoes of Badenoch or Hill, last year's great tackles, unless he shows marked improve ment, in his play. The hardest blow that the Chicago team has suffered thus far was the loss of Meigs. It was expected up to the opening of college that the big guard would be a candidate for the team again this year. The faculty at the last hour refused to enroll -the giant lineman as a classi fied student, and his football prospects were killed. Of the new linemen. Jones, Anderson and Kelly look the best. Kelly is a husky fellow with a magnificent physique for line work, but he has as yet shown little varsity ability. Jones and Anderson are being worked at guard and center. Jones looks like a comer. Anderson bos shown only ordinary ability. Watson of last year's scrubs Is one of the hardest-working men on the squad. He weighs about 180 pounds and his experience may get him a place on the team. Harris, center on last year's freshman team. Is being worked at the snapper back position. He is light, but he looks like the most promising man for the center of the line. "~#^v BISONS ARE AFTER DERBY'S QUITTERS 'Heine" Smith Says Saucy Things to-Clymer's Lucky Team. JourneT Special Service. Columbus. Ohio, Oct. 8.Captain George Smith of the Buffalo Eastern league' club au thorized this statement last night, after being Informed that the Columbus team intended holding up Buffalo's share of the receipts of the Sunday game, amounting to over $2,000. "I hereby, on the part of the Buffalo club, challenge the Columbus club to a series of five games, two to be played in Buffalo, two in Co lumbus and the fifth if necessary 'on neutral grounds, for $1,000 a side. "I am willing that the $527.50 now held by the Columbus club shall go as a forfeit for said series. As soon as the challenge is accepted the balance of the money will be posted. "To make it stronger, I will agree that all gate receipts shall go to the winner of the series." Buffalo and Columbus played two games in the series for the Clas3 A minor league cham pionship yesterday and broke even. This gives Buffalo three and Columbus two games. The agreement was that four victories would be neeeesary to decide the championship. The Buf falo players left for home last night, and It is improballe that the series will now be fin ished, as the eastern men are discouraged by the unfavorable weather they have encountered here.

KELLEY CASE DP TO COMMISSION Today the or Journal Special Service, Chicago, Oct. 8.Late last night President Murphy reported that the West Side grounds were in readiness for the coming battles for the world's baseball championship. A large gang of men were at work all day, and when quitting time came everything was In place. Out on the South Side tbiigs are not going as rapidly, but President Comiskey is sure that all will be in readiness for the first game there on Wednesday. The few remaining reserved box seats left for" the games at the South Side park were gobbled up shortly after the sale was reopened yester day morning. Not the slightest vestige of a reserved seat for any game at either of the parks remains, and those Who were not fortunate enough to get the precious pasteboards will have to take their chances in getting into the un reserved seats. The sale of these sections will not be opened until just before each game. The national commission will hold an execu tive session this morning and make the final arrangements for the great series. It is also likely that the Mike Kelley case will come before the commission- at this meeting, but It may be postponed until later in the week. The members of the commission, Chairman Garry Hermann, Presidents Pulliam of the National and Ban Johnson of the' American league, will remain In town until the series Is finished, and there is some chance that the Kelley tangle may be considered later in the week. After the executive, session is finished the commission will meet the officials and players of the two clubs and the umpires and give the final instructions! The' assignment of the um pires, will also be made'at this meeting.

Chadwick saw the Yale games here last week and noticed the weakness In the center of the line with an eye of laying out his work this week. It has been shewn by the games here that the center and the guards have got to abandon the old-time system of sticking to the middle of the line to stop playg of offense aimed by the opposing side. With ten yards to stop plays until they have better opportunity to safely try to pierce the intruding line and smash trick plays. An end to replace Burch is one of Yale's now.

It is hoped that Howard Jones will soon be out to play again, but he is wanted in Alcott's place rather than on the left end. CHICAGO IS CRAZY OYER "THE SERIES" Journal Special Service. Chicago, Oct. 8.Preliminary to the world's championship baseball games which begin here tomorrow, members of the national commission, members of the Chicago National and American teams, the umpires and others directly con cerned met here today. Rules governing the series and the importance of preserving decorum on the field were among the matters thoroly dis cussed. advance sale of seats makes it a foregone conclusion that a record-breaking crowd will be present when plh'y'" is begun in the National league park at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow-. Anticipating that thousands must be turned away from the gates, two local newspapers have leased several of the largest halls in the city where those disappointed at the park may re ceive by wire prompt reports of every play made. The two teams are in remarkably good condition. The Nationals will go into the field with their lineup Intact with the exception of the center fielder, Slagle, whose place will be taken by Arthur Hoffman, It is believed that Shortstop Davis of the wbltesox will be able to appear in his old position, which will give Comiskey his regular team.
