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.

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.

STAGG'S MAROONS
NEED HEAVY MEN
First Week's PraWc| Develops
Many Backs but Promising
Linemen Are Scarce.
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.

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.

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. Scores:

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.

Charlie Chadwick has been secured to assist
Rockwell and Hoyt all this week. 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

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. Who the opposing pitchers will
be tomorrow has not yet been announced.

case of the latter the small showing was dne.
In "part to the transfer of numerous games on
account of counter attractions. Davenport, on
the contrary, played its full quota, but fell
behind. The past year has been unfortunate.
It was impossible to keep up the interest in
the face of tfie poor showing. Finally J. T.
Hayes, who had handled the team ever since the
league was organized, decided to retire and give
a syndicate of citizens a chance. The franchise)
was sold and Dan B. Home elected president.
The situation grew worse instead of better,
and the outlook is not encouraging. Davenport
In previous years was one of the best towns
of the circuit. It Is the general opinion that
Davenport will be given another chance.
'There are numerous applicants for a berth.
Danville has sent word that it will have a
formal application before the Chicago meeting.
1jhis was one of the best cities in the K. I. T.
league. Preeport of the Wisconsin league Is
after membership. Qulncy is interested and
Burlington' might take a franchise if it could
get away from the Iowa league. Either Dan
ville or Burlington would be ngreeable.
Davenport has sent word to President Holland
that It will not care for membership unless
there is a radical
decrease,
for the future.

Chicago team up
set all calculations by winning the pennant.
The contest was not decided until last week,
the New York team being within striking dis
tance of the leaders until Oct." 3 when a de
feat at Philadelphia put them out of the run
ning. An equally hard struggle for second place
was not decided until two days later., when Chi
cago defeated Ceveland' and took- away the Ohio
club's last chance to overhaul New. Jfork. The
fourth and fifth teams,* Philadelphia and St.
Louis, were within hailing distance turnout tho
season, Philadelphia, in fact,' leading the league
on three separate occasions, the lait time no
later than Ang. 5. Washington- and Boston
dropped behind in the race early-and were tall
enders thruo'jt.
In the National league, outside of Chicago's
work, the chief feature of the season was tho
hard struggle' for second place between" New
York and Pittsburg. This lasted until the first
week In September, wh*n the' lattefc.team fell
back. The other five clubs In the ^eagne occu
pied the same relative positions tbruout most
of the season, altho Brooklyn and- Cincinnati
finished un with but one garde between them,
for fifth and sixth places respectively.
St. Louis was never a contender in the face,
and the Boston club's record of 102%defeats was
only exceeded by that"'of the saine^clnb fo Jh,.
American leaerce. Tomorrow the wljrl(Ks cham
pionship series will be begun, between -the two
Chicago clubs. The first game will be played on
the National league grounds. Another Inter
league series is scheduled for St. Louis. Th*
contests will start today.
