No committees were appointed and the date set for a second meeting. v Once during this attack on the city officials and the Denver newspaper which Lindsey charged was trying to " protect the prominent citizen to whom he alleged tne ,iu,uuu true- load of whisky was being delivered, the crowd cheered him for several minutes. "This man is a friend of one of the owners of the newspaper and the purpose of this meeting is not to do anything constructive but to direct attention away from the rich violator of the law," Judge Lindsey shouted. He charged that the city was con trolled by a combine of wealth" which, he said, sought to protect the wealthy violators of the eighteenth amendment.

Judge Lindsey also said from the bench that he expected to be con demned at a massmeeting held at the state house tonight for the purpose of working up public sentiment against violations of the prohibition laws as a result of his statement in open court today, but that he felt justified in refusing to sentence the men before him to jail. "I shall put these young people on probation, as the law permits me to do," said Judge Lindsey, "and 1 think even , directs, in cases, of this kind." . "I will no' even sentence them to go to church. What good would that do? Many of the prominent men in booze and sex casec in this town are not only members of the church, but are pillars in the church. This is also true of some of our , leading gam blers. Then why should we expect that sentencing them to church . is going to do them what it hasn't done for some of the pillars of the church? This is not any reflection on the church." The court room was crowded when Judge Lindsey read his statement. . ' : 0 . Bank President Denies Charges In Jury Report Republican A, P.

YANKEE GIANT FLAY ..GA1 RAIN HALTS SATURDAY GAME AND WUKLWS lllLE CONTENDERS RESTy FOR SUNDAY, CONTEST; NATIONALS CONFIDENT, AFTER FRIDAY, GAME Republican A. P. Leased Wire . KEW YORK, Oct. 8 Saturday's world series ball game was rolled up in a wet blanket at the Polo grounds and put permanently to sleep early this afternoon. The fourth game of the series between the Yankees and the Giants officially and, accurately announced as postponed on account of rain, will be played Sunday, at mospheric conditions permitting. To night the rain had ceased falling and it looked as if Sunday might be clear, but probably cold. The postponement was voted a sorry trick of tha weather by the more than 200 eager fans who had reached the grounds before the rain began to fall at 1 o'clock and the many other thousands who about faced on their Journey to the ball park during the downpour Jn the hour before game time. It was de cidedly unwelcome, also, to the busi ness managers of the series, because of the necessity of honoring rain checks and the other , complications over admission tickets arrangements which the disruption of the original schedule brought about. In the Yankee managerial camp, however, there was no noticeable mourning over the break in the daily procession of contests. For the fore noon had brought the sad news that the team's most potent aggressive. lacior, tne somewhat well known Babe" Ruth, would not be able to take part in the day's game because of an infected arm. The Infection, caused by the -babe's" nersistencv in sliding to bases on top of a sore near the elbow, the heritage of a scrap of the flesh sustained in a slide to second late In the American league season, may keep him out of the remainder of the series. Manager Miller Huggins of the Yankees had apparently not lost hope tonight that the big fellow, with a day's complete rest, would be able to get "in there" Sunday with at least a good share of his accustomed aggresiveness. From the Yankee rlewpolnt. also, the postponement was welcome as giving Carl Mays an additional day for recuperation after his high class performance in the opening game Wednesday, when he blanked the Giants and started his club off on the two to one advantage In the series which it now holds. Harry Harper, the speedy but somewhat er ratic southpaw, was looked upon as Manager Huggins' likely selection for the pitching assignment if today's game had been played, but it ap peared certain that with Mays given his three days rest, he would be sent in again against the Nationals to morrow. The Giants, who with dander up nd bristling with the confidence their volcanic outburst of httRng in Friday's victorious hit had gven them, strained at the leash, and be moaned the adverse weather. "Snuff lin" Phil Douglas was on the cards to twirl for them today. The post ponement, it was understood, would make no difference in Manager John McGraw's selection of a box man for Sunday, and Douglas, benefitted like Mays by an additional rest period, will without much doubt be in again against Mays tomorrow. Ruth was out to the ball park to "Speaking of Women--' Irvin Cobb points out that feminine shopping does not necessarily imply buying. It means hard work for everyone concernde but seldom results in a transaction involving money. As a country minister once declaimed: "King Solomon said, and I partially agree with him . .. We only partially agree Avith Mr. Cobb on this subject. It is true there are still some aimless shoppers left. But they are in the minority. Today most women as well as most men are well-informed buyers, with a sound basis for comparing 'stores and values. By buying goods of recognized merit they save themselves the throes of old-time "shopping trips" and at the same time get a better and bigger money's worth. Most women read the advertisements that appear every day in their newspapers. They make a practice of keeping strictly up-to-snuff on news developments. Innovations and improvements.

The edge in games Is still with tha American leaguers, with Mays, their star, ready to work again and Hoyt on deck for a try to repeat his winning performance of Thursday. "We will win. with or without Ruth," was the sentiment of the Yankee players, although they didn't attempt to minimize the loss thev would suffer should the "bambino prove unable to get back into the game. They have been out-slugged by the Giants so far but their fol lowers point to the records as show ing that the celebrated Yankee at tack never remains long In check and is liable to break out in force at any time. A for their fielding, it has been 100 per cent in all three games. The Giants' quarters, too, ooze with confidence, McGraw's men re garding themselves as sure to cap ture the series, now that they have found their batting eyes, and proved their ability to slam American league pitching to all comers of the lot. Supporters of the Giants point out. also, in backing up this contention, that their favorites have been shown three twirlera of world series cali bre Douglas, Nehf and Barnes whereas the Yankees have been able to produce but Mays and Hoyt as fit contenders, "Bob- Shawkey hav ing proved a disappointment and Harper not having been tried, ven as a relief man.
