O Five reels fo moving pictures, in cluding "The Trey O'Hearts" and the j Animated Weekly of the latest war new*, at p?er Rex Theatre, tomorrow night! 0 Overplayed talent received another backset and all dope was upset again today when the youthful Boston Braves romped over the world cham pion Athletics to the tune of 1 to 0. A great game was expected when the news was announced that Boston's iron man, James and the veteran Plank would occupy the mounds for the two teams and the huge crowd assembled at Shibe Park was not dis appointed. The game was a hummer from the word go and was replete with sensational plays and grand pitching until the game was over. Plank for the Athletics never pitched a better game in his long career but it was a case of too much James. This youngster had the hard-hitting Ath letics feeding from his hand all the way and was never in a hole. The two hits that gleaned from his deliv ery came at times when there was not an opportunity for them to count and he went the whole game with out having to extend hiihself once. Plank pitched beautiful ball in all but two innings, the fourth and the ninth, when two hits were made off him in each of those innings. Up till the ninth neither team had a chance to score and the huge crowd had settled Itself for an extra inning game when the Braves came in for the first half of the ninth. But in this inning the ! grand heart of Eddie Plank began to show the effects of his many years of service on the diamond. Diehl came up and rapped out a slashing single. He Immediately stole second and a minute later scored on another single The Boston rooters in th grandstand immdiatel went wild. Pandemonium reigned supreme for the course of a few minutes. Hats were thrown in the air and fans slapped men on the back whom they had never seen be fore. Never was there such rejoicing in the cam of the contigent of Brave rooters and there will never be again for many days for Boston had scored a run and with the air-tight delivery which James was dishing out, that one run was practically as good as victory for the Braves. And a vic tory it proved to be. Nerved by the fact that his team had scored a run behind him and with the knowledge that all that was necessary to win the game was to hold the hard-hitting Mackmen safe for another inning. He grew stronger and retired the Ath letics in order. Today he is the Ideal of all Boston. What Bush was to the series of last year, what Babe Adams was in past series, James is today in the eyes of the fans of Beanville. (Contiuned on page four). BIG DEMOCRATIC RALLY United States Senator FRANCIS G. NEWLANDS And Party will discuss the po litical issues of the day at The Bradley Opera House OCT. 12 There will be a free moving picture show preceeding the Speaking All Are Invited ATHLETICS LOSE PRESTIGE LOCALLY Elko baseball enthusiasts are still excited over the remaining games or the world's series. Although the odds have been switched from 10 to 8 on the Athletics to 10 to 8 on the Braves, the Athletics have many supporters locally and they are still betting .their money on their favorites. The odds posted locally for today's game was even money on the Athletics. Quite a bunch of it was taken but the ma jority of ehe sportsmen are willing to lay backhand bet their money on the entire series as betting on each game taken all around, is at best a risky proposition. One local man who made a book on yesterday's game failed to win a single bet made as he was of fering 10 to 8 on the Athletics and the supporters of the Braves made a killing. The same bookie has switch ed to even money on the Athletics to day which seems to be an indication that the confidence which has pre vailed In the minds of Athletic sup porters lately, is beginning to wane. At any rate the Athletics have lost a great deal of prestige locally on ac count of losing the first game. The fact is that to win the series the Ath letics must strike a gait w'hich will enable them to win 4 games of the remaining six to be played. The question is, can they keep up the gait? n HORSE FALLS III CEST POOL A horse belonging Lo Pete Glaly, early this morning In some unaccount able manner, fell in an old cest pool at the back of Gialy's house and re quired the efforts of Mr. Glaly and all the neighbors him from his extremely novel situation. After some hours of work, however, they succeeded in get ting the animal out. An unconfirmed rumor from the seat of war says that it required a pint of Old Crow to re habilitate the nerves of the unfor tunate animal. COMMERCIALAND MAfffl ARRIVALS Mayer K. L.

ELKO SHOULD HAVE FHEE DELIVERY Elko is still kept from having free mall delivery by the fact that the^ict izens of the city will not meet the re quirements of the postal authorities by putting in the proper sidewalks and street numbers at all the houses in town. Elko has come up to the required population and the receipts at the local postofflce are sufficient but the pleasure and convenience of free mail delivery is being denid the citizens of the best town in Nevada, through their own negligence. Mr. Donald G. Means, of Reno, the Pobtal Inspector for this district, is in the city now and states that he cannot recommend free delivery for Elko un til the above mentioned requirementa are met. He state that the matter of sidewalks and the streets are all that are keeping us from having the ser vice and it would be installed prompt ly if these matters were attended to It looks like a shame that those trifl ing matters should hold Elko down in. this manner. Public spirited citizens of the city should get together and see if some means could not be decided on to relieve this difficulty. Shall we let our city be denied this convenience which iB enjoyed by numbers of other towns not half as good as Elko? r\ v San Francisco Visitor* Mrs. M.
