Game Devore Makes Feature
Catch in Ninth Inning..
Two Heroes Emirp from Fray

Gontsst Like FictiH Sttry Infiald-

ing in Final Innings.
Boston, Oct. 10. And yu snail hear
the story of how Josh Devore. the little
duck-legged outfielder of the Giants, who
has been taunted and jeered by the big
town fans this season until his boyish
heart was almost broken, came leaping
up to grae emergency to-day, rescuing
his room mate, the sensational Rube
Marquard. from the peril of Impending
defeat, and givng the New. Tork team
the third game In the world's series .by
a. score of 2 to 1.
You shall hear. too. how that same
Marquard, once derided as the 11LO0O
lemon, held the slugging Boston Red Sox
helpless for eight innings before the
magic of his left arm. soothed and hu
mored and petted along by his comrades
like a flighty prima donna, only to find
himself crowded into danger in the final
moments of the game because of an un
fortunate muff of a thrown JbaJl by Fred
Merkle, the big first baseman of the
Gotham club.
Devore Saes Game,
Then there is a story of how another
Frank Baker holered at the threshold of
fame only to see the door slammed in
his face. But that Is part of the story
of the thrilling ninth inning, when all
the splendid work of Rube Marquard
was about to be flicked away. Usually
the hero of the game enters to the crash
of the bat, and that is the way For
est Cady, a big. raw recruit of the
-lied Sox, -was makings Ms appear-nee
this afternoon when the diminutive De
ore flashed up out of comparative ob
scurity nnd made a. startling catch which
saved the Giants, and putting New Tork
on e err terms with Boston in the battle
for thebaseball championship of the
world. But for the remarkable catch
Marquard would surely have been de
feated and Cady's name would be tipped
largely to-morrow from coast to coast.
It was .the situation typical of the old
time Action story of baseball the last
half of the ninth Inning, two men on
bases, two out and the home team need
ing Just those two runs to win the game.
A mere single would do it and Jake
Stahl, the Red Sox's chief, pinned his
faith to Cady. a first- ear man. on his
catching staff, who had come into the
game late, relieving Bill Carrlgan.
For two long hours Marquard had
pitched wonderful ball. Inning after in
ning he had swept the heavy hitters of
the Sox aside with the swish of his
powerful left arm, pitching as he pitch
ed early this season, when he flamed
across the baseball world with nineteen
straight victories. The Giants Inflelders
were watching and guarding him with
eager care every minute of the time,
dreading that flash of unsteadiness
which had marked the work of the tall
fellow since his wonderful run was
shattered months ago Once or twice he
seemed to pause In his pitching stride
and Doyle and Herzog and Merkle would
close In on him babbling words of en
couragement. Occasionally Mejers. the
big Indian, would walk out to the box
and talk soothingly to the pitcher, his
white teeth gleaning behind his mask as
he grinned In heartening fashion
The Giants had broken through the
epitball delivery of Toung Buck O'Brien,
the Brockton boy, for two runs between
the first and the fifth innings. A few
months ago two runs would have been
considered a good and sufficient mar
gin for Marquard over any club, but
after seeing much stronger leads 'than
that driven away like1 puffs of smoke In
fleetlngs moments of unsteadiness on
the part of the left hander, the big town
boys had come to feel that they could
have complete safety only In great num
bers and they fought desperately to ln
ereasa their lead. i

Boston. Oct. 10. Rube Marquard, hero
of nineteen straight victories, stuck an
other feather in his cap this afternoon
when he handed the Boston Red Sox. the
American League's entry in the world's
baseball race, their first defeat. The
final score was for the Gotham aggre
gation and a lone one for the Hub City
"Marquard the cracked," "Marquard
the down and out," came to life and
pitched one of the best games of his
life. Never before did the 01.000 won
der (not lemon) hurl the old horsehlde
over the plate; never before did Mc
Graw's protege' fling the ball over the
rubber with such dazzling speed and
the Red Sox were completely at his
mercy until the ninth Inning, when
dark clouds appeared on the horizon and
the Red Sox drew a score.
McGraws hired men played behind
Marquard with the same dash and "pep"
as they did when the Rube was hanging
up his wonderful record of nineteen
straight. Rube shot! the ball across with
the same speed as1 in the earlier part
of the season. 'and the Boston batters
were mowed down In rotation. A few
hits, 'scattered here and there, did no
damage, and up to the final round the
Giants' southpaw was undisputed mas
ter of the. battle.
josh uevore, thai Uiants speedy lert
gardner, vedj Bube from ninth In
ning defeat, for Forest CadyJoe Wood's
battery partner, clouted the ball to right
center, and all within the ball ard. in
cluding Marquard himself, gave up the
ghost. Cady tried to spring Into undy
ing fame, but Devore broke the spring
board. Devore'. Great Catch.
Henrlcksen was on third base and
Wagner on second with two out and one
run needed to tie The pair flashed
homeward with the soundest the collision
between ball and bat Devore started in
an apparently hopeless chase toward the
thousands of howling bugs In the distant
bleachers. The thought of the big end
of that purse must hate added kings to
Joshua's feet. An J how he caught up
with the flying thing, grabbed It. and
held on while the frantic cheering gae
way to a groan of lost hope.
Marquard never looked better than for
the nrst eight rounds. Every one was
expecting one of his famous blow-ups,
and the majority was astonished as he
went through round after round without
giving the Sox a good opening. He was
as good as we have ever seen him. Not
until the eighth did he give a base on
balls. His speed was terrific and he used
It for all It was worth. Curve balls were
few and far between. He used a few
on Hooper, Speaker, and Gardner, the
three left-handed batsmen in Stahl's
club, but the right-handed batters saw
little but the fast one and did not see
that very clearly.
Buck O'Brien was unfortunate. His
pitching would have easily won either
of the two preceding games. But he
couldn't cop without runs.
His spltball didn t break very well In
the early Innings, and New York's two
tallies were earned. Also. Buck was in
a couple of tight places before he reach
ed his stride. He pulled out of a very
deep hole In the fifth. The Giants scored
once in that Inning and Buck perhaps
was lucky to get on that easily., There
after he Improved steadily and the vis
itors were having lots of trouble with
him In the sixth, seventh, and eighth.
O Brlen was taken out In the Boston's
eighth tc allow Neal Ball to hit for him.

New Tork, Oct. 10 Ihe trial of Police
Lieut. Cliarles Becker, progressed under
he judicial lash of Justice John W.
Goff to the extent of completing the
Jury and the examination of six wit
nesses whose testimony established a
foundation for the murder charge
Louise Krause. a waiter who wit
nessed the as-isslnation of Herman Ro
senthal, the gambler. In West Forty-
third Street In the morning of July 16,
positively identified "Gyp the Blood,"
"Lefty Louie," and "Whltey Lewis" as
the gun men who fired the fatal shots.
Jacob Reich, more generally known as
"Jack" Sullivan, was identified as the
man who leaned over Rosenthal's body
as soon as it dropped to the pavement
and then turned around to the murder
ers and said:
"He is dead."
Krause had been on the stand only a
lew minutes when asked if he could
identify the actual murderers.
"I can." he answered.
"Send for them," Interposed Justice
Goff. sternly.
Within (He minutes Gyp the Blood.
Lefty Louie. Dago Frank. Whltey Lewis,
and Jacob Reich were brought Into the
Woom by court attendants.
"Now which of the men did you see
lire shots T
The witness pointed his finger at the
group, but it was difficult to tell which
figure he Intended to indicate.
"Step from the stand." said Justice
Goff, "and place your hand on the mn
jou Intend to Identify."
Krause almost ran across the room, and
touched "Whltey" Lewis.
"Are you sure about that?" asked Jus
tice Goff.
"I am," answered Krause.
"What other man did ou see fire a.
piatolT" demanded Attorney Mclntyre.
shaking his finger at Krause.
"And this one," said tha witness,

evident hope that the Hungarian waiter
would make a mistake under such a try
ing ordeal.
"Tes, sir; I saw this man also." said
Krause, placing his band on the lapel of
the coat worn by Gyp the Blood.
There was a death-like stillness in the
court room while these identifications
were being made. Whltey Lewis snicker
ed like a schoolboy when he was' picked
out as one of the assassins. Lefty Louie
was more serious, and as soon as the.
witness started In his direction, he
glared at Krause with a snarl that dis
played two even rows of white teeth
tightly clenched. Gyp the the Blond, uu.
Whltey Lewis, treated the whole matter
as sometning oi a joxe.
Dago Frank, who was not identified.
merely looked pleased. The prisoners
were In the trial room less than ten

ness, who has been considered by all
who followed the preliminary examina
tion, to represent he weakest point In
the district attorney's case against Beck
er, could not be shaken on an) thing.
The twelfth juror was accepted at 1130
o'clock after the defense had exhausted
Its thlrt)-:ive peremptory challenges.
District Attorney Whitman immediately
opened with an .outline -of the case that
has been prepared against Becker, and
described the charge as the most atro
cious and cunning crime of any country
and any time.
The defense took objection to the

want him to-have his gang croak Ro
senthal." Justice Goff overruled the ob
jection. Mr. Whitman proceeded In the face of
interruption;, charging in ringing tones
and repeating many times with empha
sis, that he would show that the de
fendant had committed heinous murder.
When the district attorney began to
speak Becker assumed a pose of atten
tion, but absolute) Indlffrence. He sat
sldewajs In hlsfxha!r. with his hands
folded and his ''chin eleated. He be
traied no s!gnof emotion, and looked
steadily at the Jury until his own coua
sel opened their battery of objections.
Then he grew red in the face, swal
lowed repeatedlj. and nervously pushed
his cheeks out with his tongue, as he
did when arraigned on the night of his
Seek to Throw Blame.
The first five witnesses called In the
order In which their names are men
tioned were Policeman John J. Brady,
who was on fixed post duty In the center
of Times Square at the time of the
shooting. Policeman William J. File, who
was dlnlns In the Metropole restaurant
and made a fruitless effort to capture
the assassins. Ambulance Surgeon Den
nis Talor, of Flower Hospital, who an
swered the emergency call, and who was
the first medical officer to examine the
body of the murdered gambler: Coroners
Phjslclan Otto H. Schultze. who per
formed the autopsy, and Jacob Helt. '
waiter In the Metropole. on duty at the
time of the killing. Then came Krause.
The testimony of the first five wit
nesses dealt with purely perfunctory
facts, tending to establish the fact of
the crime.
While cross-examining these witnesses
questions that had to do with the move
ments of Harry Vallon and "Boob" Wal
ker were dwelt upon at length by Beck
er's counsel Indicating clearly that the
main fight for Becker's freedom will be
an effort to show that Vallon or one of
his colleagues planned, ordered, and car
ried out the murder plot.
At the close of the day's proceedings,
considerable excitement was caused by
the statement that two new witnesses,
whose names were given as Maurice and
Jacob Luban, who could corroborate In
letail the testimony given by Louis
Krause. had been discovered. These men
are said to be East Side characters who

The Clapp investigating committee,
which has spent no small part of Its
time this month listening to campaign
speeches. In line with Its apparent pur
pose to grind out as much good material
as quickly as possible, yesterday heard
the first prepared contribution from the
Taft side of the present campaign fight
Charles Dewey Utiles, who managed
the White House end of the 'President's
preconventlon campaign and then became
chairman of the Republican National
Committee, was the speaker. Mr. Hllles
was called ostensibly to learn what he
knew about contributions to the Taft pre
conventlon campaign. As a matter of
fact. Mr. Hllles didn't know anything
which hadn't been told before, so. rather
than disappoint the committee, he, told
what he knew about the Harvester Trust
and Its promoter, George W. Perkins, the
Bull Moose "angel."
Reads Perkins' Letter.
Being a busy man. Mr. Hllles decides
to kill queries with one answer, so he
writes a reply to Perkins and then, the
day after sending it. reads that reply to
the Clapp committee. That is what he
did yesterday when Senatlor Clapp asked
mm wnat foundation he had for the
Like CoL Roosevelt. Mr. Hllles had hh,
case prepared In advance, and. like the
colonel, was permitted to make his Etumn
speech without interruption. He told the
committee that he believed the amount
ne mentioned had been spent In Roose
velt's preconventlon campaign. Judging
from the amount of work which had
been accomplished and the apparent ef-
rorts in the various States. He didn t
mak it clear how he connected these
expenditures with the Harvester Trust,
but he said a lot of mean things about
the trust and reviewed a lot of ancient
history about Its organization, including
the- controv ersy catering around the sud
den termination of the government suit
against the trust In I94T.

Chairman Hllles' letter. In part, read
as follows:
'In jour letter of recent date you ques
tion my assertion that millions of dollars
of Harvester money was expended In
the effort to nominate Mr. Roosevelt.
Tour letter suggests two grounds of
complaint, hamel). that I said that there
had been a campaign expenditure of mil
lions of dollars, and that I alleged that
Harvester monei had been used. I will
deal with these two points separately.
First, as to the amount expended. The
public has not been furnished with state
ments as to sums iveived and disbursed
by )ou and jour allies, and the careless
business methods of Chairman Dixon In
handling campaign funds, as shown by
his testimony before the Senate com
mittee. Indicate that no accounts or rec
ords were kept from which any reliable
statements could ever be complied But
there are other wavs of ascertaining the
amounts expended, and particularly bv
estimating the easily ascertainable cost
