Cleveland, Oct 9.?Through the
! baseball corridors of time, this afternoon
reverberated the thunderous record
of two heroic achievements, two
remarkable feats, one on attack and
the other on defence, which hitherto
had defied the most vigorous efforts of
players in world series. One was a
home rpn with the bases filled, hit by
Elmer Smith, and the other was a
triple play unassisted, by William

both by pleveland men, made a great
triumph by the Indiana over Brooklyn
greater still. They prpvided the booming
drum accompaniment to a third
Cleveland pa?an of victory, which
drowned out Brooklyn's whistling
through a baseball graveyard. The
score was 8 to 1.
This was Indeed a dour, dreary, luckless
day for Brooklyn. Balked at every
turn, with Burleigh Grimes, Its great
pitcher, driven from the mound in the
fourth inning, with Cleveland rising
to hitherto unattained achievements
both in the field and at the bat?with
every break of the game going against

For the second time In the series
Grimes was opposed by James Bagby.
But It was a Bagby who was moat enthusiastically
favored by fickle Dame
Fortune. Cleveland made twelve hlU
off Grimes and Clarence. Mitchell, who
took his place, while Brooklyn hammered
out thirteen hits off Bagby. Yet
it was not until the closing minute of the
battle that the Dodgers were able to escape
a shutout.
And so to-rflglit Brooklyn faces a critical
situation. For the second time in
the series it Is playing the role of the

It has seen Its best pitchers hammered
without mercy by a relentless, savage
crew which Is determined to exact the

highly critical contest of to-morrow,
But it Is .a fighting Brooklyn club?a
game, aggressive combination which kepi
heads up In the thick or the sickening
defeat of this afternoon and ever wat
pressing forward. Brooklyn may depend
on this team of Dodgers to keep fighting
to the finish.
What a game this Cleveland clut
played to-day! In the field it was here
there and everywhere, always playing
with its brain as well as with its handt
and legs At the bat It was cunning
resourceful, powerful and dangeroui
every minute. Three double plays and
the great triple play by Wamby tel!
only part of the tale of tho defence
which these Titans of the American
T,eague threw up behind the Indifferenl
pitching of Bagby.
And the attack was In keeping with
ihe defence. In addition to the hom<
run which w-as delivered by Smith there
was another home run by Bagby himself
which sent two runners in ahead oi
him. There were lesser batting heroet
too. Whether the Smith home run 01
the Wamhsganss triple play deserves th<
top position among the deeds of tht
day. It Is a question. The big effort or
attack always seems to outshine th<
great deed on defence, at least for tht
time being. But after the passing ol
years It Is likely that the feat recorded
by Wambsganas will stand out In boldei
Thla home run by Smith, tho terrific
force of which exploded the hopes and
chances of the Dodgers In the first Inning,
was none of your ordinary foui

It was not a mere lift Into a at" 1
like the right field nffalr at the d<
Grounds. It was a prodigious punch, I
most violent thump which sent the bal
travelling far and high. It oleared tin
rrreen which looms high above the fence
in right field, a feat similar to Uftlni
the ball over the right field wall at Kb
bets Field.
When Smith came to bat In the firs
inning he faced a situation which almos
cried out for the rise of a hero. It wai

for a long sustained effort.
The respite tVrangel has received
while the Bolshevists were fighting the
Poles gave htm time to hulld slowly on
a sure foundation. Learning from the
mistakes of his predecessors, he has
taken care to win converts hy the prudent
admlnlstrstlon of the territory he
has occupied. He has dismissed cate

to think that any evil might t?e better
than the present one. and thereby did
much to ruin I)enekine. He has been
content to proceed slowly ard to deny
himself the pleasure of pushing forward
his forces until the country behind him
was In reasonably good order and contentment.
He Is thereby drawing to
himself new adherents and allies, and It
Is for these reasons, rather than because
of his military strength, which In
relatively not great, that I say he Is
not likely to be seriously shaken durlrtg
the coming winter.
The changes In Russia have been keleldoscoptc,
but It Is because Wrangel'a
methods have been sound when those of
others have been unsound that I venture
with some confidence on this
Will he bo able to go much further?
Very probably. The Bolshevist forces
are shaken and disillusioned by the failure
of the Polish campaign. They are
short of ammunition and military material
and equipment of all kinds, and
above all. they are weary of war. Ev<
If the Bolshevists make peace with the
Poles, and have no other enemy than |
Wrangel. they are not at ivcsent In
condition to maintain against htm a I

quite possible that by allying himself
with (Jen. Petlura and the anti-Red
forces In the Ukraine on his left flank
and with the Cossacks on his right, both
of whom seem favorably disposed to cooperate
with him. Wrangel may succeed
In driving the Bo'shcvists from the

Will ho bo able to overthrow Bolshevism
and make himself predominant
over all Russia? Is he the Napoleon of
the Russian chaos? These are qu stlons
which miiny are asking, but It Is very
difficult to return any precise answer.

Washington, Oct. 10.?Comprehensive
plans for checking illicit traffic in '
whiskey through the shutting off of '
withdrawals at the warehouses of the r
country are being drawn by the prohibition
enforcement officers of the u
Treasury Recommendations are to be 1
made to Congress not only Tor a vast c
Increase in the prohibition enforcement
fund of $4,500,000 a year, but for .
changes in the law that will make It
easier to shut off the number of per- 1
mits granted for wholesale dealing in
whiskey and to give enforcement officers
a closer check on what is withdrawn.
For months great quantities of'
whiskey have mysteriously flooded the
shadowy markets of the big cities, particularly
in the East Prohibition officers
do not know where it is coming
from, but they draw the easy deduction
that it is slipping from the hands of (
the authorized wholesalers into the
hands of those who Illicitly traffic in It j
There are ^pmething more than 3,000 j
outstanding permits to wholesalers to
withdraw whiskey from bonded war?-j
houses and dispose of it on Government
permit to those authorized .to use It fo i
medicinal and other purposes and for
non-beverage use. These authorized re- r
tellers, Including the drug stores of the j
country, number fewer than 12,500, bo 1
that thero is a wholesaler for every four
or five retailers.
Whiskey may be withdrawn for many
' legitimate purposes, but there Is no eft- j
raping the evidence that much with- !
j drawn finds Its way lrto Illegitimate use.
Knforcement officers are prep'red to j
fight this s'tuation hard. They feel that I
the widespread bootlegging, which has 1
forced the price of whiskey down In
some instances almost to preprohlbition
levels, Is a reflection on them.
Drys' Plana Closely Guarded.
Prohibition advocates also are prepared
to flght this situation hard. Some
organizations that brought about ths
national "drought" are seriously considering
a forceful campaign before the
ntxt Congress to have the Government
confiscate and destroy all the whiskey )
there Is except a minimum amount for
medical purposes. Plans for the cam- !
palgn and % great lobby before Congress
are being closely guarded, but
| they have been more or less widely dts
I cussed.
I The undertak'ng by the Government
would be n mighty expensive one and

Should the Government destroy existing |
stocks reimbursing the rood faith hold- j
ers it would mean burning or dumping i
something like 45,000.000 gallons ot '
whiskey alone, not counting rum, wines, j
ccrd als, gin and all other particularly j
palatable spirits.
On the present market the wholesale j
| "alue of this whiskey, which does not '
| tnke into account taxes on other cost*
incidental to withdrawal from warehouses,
Is something like $3 a gallon,
| even if it does cost as high as $80 a
! gallon from the bootlegger. This would
1 rreke the total cost for destruction
[ of something like $1 $.*,000,000 of the

Should the contemplated campaign

however, It will have a strong pressure

Spmncftelu 111., Oct. 10.?Gov. Cox
made public to-night a series of cable
messages which passed between President
Wilson and William H. Taft during
the negotiation of the Treaty of
Versailles. They came Into his possession,
of course, from Mr. Wilson's
private flies In the White House.
These communications show that
Mr. Taft mode frequent suggestions
for changes and modifications of the
covenant of the League of Nations, together
with advice us to how Republican
opposition might be overcome.
They covered a period from March 16
to June 28, 1919, afld were transmitted
for Mr. Taft to Mr. Wilson in Paris
I through Secretary Tumulty, at times
I In cipher.
Gov. Cox had a twofold purpose in
j making public the documents at this
stage of the campaign?first. In an ef\
fort to prove that the League of Nations
covenant was not a one man affair
and that Mr. Wilson welcomed suggestions.
and. second, In a further attempt
to drive a wedge Into the Republican
ranks between those who favor the
: League of Nations and those who do not.

they show exactly what took place, but
their publication conveys little lnformatlon

of common knowledge. widely printed
at the time, that Mr. Taft had made

, newspapers wrote his views on the
league of Nations, dlscusslr g It* various

been calling attention to suggestions
that came not only from Mr. Taft but
from Charles C. Hughes anil CUbu Hoot.

President Wilson and Mr. Taft. ntatail
that In "every Instance" the President
followed Mr Taft'* suggestion, and Oov.
Cox's statement declared that "every
suggestion of Mr. Taft was followed literally."
The correspondence Indicated
; that Mr. Taft's suggestions dealt principally
with protecting the Monroe Doctrine,
and dealing with American domestic
questions, withdrawal from the
league, unanimous league decisions and
disarmament. The correspondence made
public contained two cablegrams from
the President to Mr. Taft and several
from Mr. Taft to the Executive, Including
one In which 'A. l.awrence Ixjwell.

Tumulty, who said that Mr. Taft
wanted to know If suggestions would be
acceptable to the President. The reply
r given by President Wilson said he would
"appreciate Mr. Tart's otter or surgea
tlons and welcome them."
' "The sooner they are sent the better,"
the President's replj added. "You
need give yourself no uneasiness about
my yielding anything with regard to the
embodiment of the proposed convention

Test of Taft Cable.
'm March 18 Mr. Taft cabled:
If you bring back the treaty with
the Dengue of Nations In It make
more specific reservation of the Monroe
Doctrine, fix a term for duration
of the league And the limit of
armament, require expressly unanimity
of action In executive counoll
and body of delegates and add to
Article XV a provision that whets
the executive oouncll of tne ooay of
delegates finds the difference to grow
out of an exclusively domestic policy
It shall recommend no ettTement,
the ground will be completely cut
from under the opponents of tha
T/cague of Nations.
One of Mr. Taft's messages said:
The Republican Senators are trying
to stir up anxiety among Re.
rubllrans lest this be a limitation
upon our tariff. It would help much
to meet and remove objections and

Regarding the Monroe Doctrine, >fr.
