Eighth Inning.
Xew Tork. Oct. 11. A chain of
pnarlcd and knotted flngen, flunr wide
behind thesnapplng speed of "Smoky
Joe" Wood, the hope of Boston In the
battle for' the world's championship,
checked every assault of the big town
forces at the Polo Grounds this after
noon, and turned victory In the fourth
game of the worlds series to the won
derful youne pitcher by a score' of 3 to 1.
Bald-headed "Heine" 'Washer, a ten
year veteran of the' ball field, and once a
Giant, back In the earliest days of Mc
Qraw's regime, was the rock of the Red
Sox to-day. wlththe younger- hands of
Steve Terkes lending him able assistance
from 'the right flank of the diamond.
Time was. when the Islanders were
slashing wickedly at the delivery of
"Smoky Joe." theold shortflelder of the
Sox would come careening through with
plays the like of which have been per
formed in recent years on New Tork
diamonds by but one other man. And
that other man's name, is, also Wagner.
If you search the box score you will
find that the bald Bostonlan Is credited
with three assists, two putouts, and one
error. Nearly every one of these figures
represents a play destructive to .Giant
chance s,- While the single slip gained them
DT Good tar Spee.
Threat is "Smoky Joe" Wood, but with
out that impenetrable barrier. Wagner
and'Steve Terkes, on the other side, the
Red Sox might not have that one game
lead over tbe'GIants-in the great, fight.-
Under ,a darkr sky that' boded ram. the
thins tilaffh tit Huiy
with speed that brought It up before
the eyes of the Giant batsmen no larger
than a pea. early in the game, but grad
ually theyT gauged the flashing drift of
the Boston boy's delivery and gradually
-Srelr blows sounded more menacing un
til Jake' Stahl bad his other pitchers
warmlnz un in the far outfield. Ever
the line behind "Smoky Joe" held taut,
however, and the Giant assault died
irar to feeble strokes at the finish.
Charley Tesreau. the gigantic lad from
the Ozark Hills, again was pitted against
the sensational Wood by Manager Mc-
Graw. but through the early innings tne
backwoodsman could not bring his
freaky delivery to hand, and the Red
Sox soon picked up two runs a tre
mendous lead for "Smoky Joe." A three
base blow by Larry Gardner in the sec
ond inning and a wild pitch by the
Gotham heaving bobemeth gave the Bos
tonians one tally, and a sequence of
events beginning with a base on balls
and ending with a scratch hit, gave them
another in the fourth.
L.aat Ran Off Ann.
The third run was secured in the ninth
oft Leon Ames, one of the veteran pitch
ers of the Giants" staff, who took up the
pitching after the mountain boy had
passed out of the game In the seventh
inning to make room for Harry McCor-
mlck, the great pinch hitler of the Goth
am club, and It was coincident with the
passing of "JBlg Jeff" that opportunity
hit the Giants' door with a most re
sounding thump.
Going Into the seventh the Giants were
two runs behind and Fred Merkle was
quickly retired on strikes by Wood.
Charley Herzog, the slugger of the se
ries, smashed a drive past Wagner for
a single, which brought "Chief Meyers
up. The Indian hit a long fly to the out
field that rose high between Trla Speak
er and Duffy elg. As the latter swung
across from left field. Speaker turned
from center, took a look' at the soaring
ball, and waved Levis back, .making the
catch himself.
Arthur Fletcher, the long-shanked
shortstop of the big town club, who
threatened to become the "goat" of the
series, only to come back and play sen
sational ball, smashed the first ball for
a double to right, scoring Herzog. The

For the second time in the, baseball
classic. Jake Stahl's 'marvelous mound

a monster crowd of' loyal Giant rooters.
True the Gotham club managed to cor
ral one more safety off "Smoky Joe"
than the red legs were able to gorner off
the "big mountain" arid . "Red" Ames,
but Wood was blessed -with wonderful
support. Heine Wagner' and Steve
Terkes figured In no less than six sen

hit and possibly a tally.

Wood Tras twice as (good as he was In
the first game, he salll failed to work up
to his best form. He was a whale for
the first four innings.
In the fifth and sixth the Giants took
a few liberties with' him and he might
have been in deep trouble but for mar
velous support by Wagner -and Terkes.
In the seventh the New Yorkers scored
their run and would have had another

consistently strong as any other lnfielder
on either side. Two Giants got on In the
eighth when two were out and then Joe

one of his easiest rounds, so his weak

This, was the first ' bit, of -testimony
connecting, the four gunmen with, the
police officer on trial for, his life before
Justice Goff In the criminal branch of
the Supreme Court.
It supplied theTteost. dramatic, incident
to date, with the -exception of the- one'
that was to follow a few moments, later
when "Lefty" Louie with an ugly snarl
and defiant gesture shouted to-Justloo
Goff his 'objections to,. the manner In
which he and the other .gunmen were
being brought before -the witnesses for'
purposes, of Identification.
Luban swore he witnessed the killing
of Rosenthal tn .front 'of the Metrocele'
noiei on tne morntng'Ol July 16, and he
said he saw. guns in the hands of "Gyp
the Blood." "Lefty Louie," "Wh'itey"
Lewis, and a fourth whose name he did
not know. He had known the, first three
by name before' the murder, he said.
Becker was plainly alarmed and his coun
sel disconcerted by the jeopardy with
which the case of the defense had become
so suddenly and unexpectedly surround

from the witness by Assistant District

Wilson, this time 'attacking the Demo
cratic candidate's attitude on the tariff.
The colonel defended hfe own' adminis
tration record on the tariff, saying no
demand for tariff revision existed at that
time. In vitriolic phrase the third-party
candidate declared that Gov. Wilson and
also President Taft 'have- taken a
"vicious"-stand on the tariff. He char
acterized Wilson as "not a progressive,
but a reactionary, a tory."
Roosevelt, more In detail than In his
brjef stop in Wisconsin, yesterday, re
proached Senator La Follette for his
opposition to the Progressive party. He
accused the Wisconsin Senator of boost
ing the Wilson candidacy, of being In
spired by a vengeful -motive, challenging
him' as a "professed". Progressive' to try

countries are withholding their proclamation is a mystery in diplomatic

"The Balkan outbreak is the beginning of a great European clash,

The Montenegrins to-dav added
the capture of Turkish forts at

capture of the forts gives the Mon
tenegrins control of the road to the

that the Montenegrins had taken

as an error.
