NEW YORK, Oct. 11.—The Boston Americans drew one notch nearer to the world's championship here this afternoon when they defeated the Brooklyn Nationals, 6 to 2, in the fourth game of the series, which now stands 3 to 1 in the Red Sox's favor. Tomorrow the conflict will be renewed at Braves' Field, Boston, where the fifth, and, what the Red Sox hope, will be the deciding game, will be played. Tomorrow is a legal holiday in Massachusetts and the indications point to an enormous attendance. With today's contest at Ebbet's Field, the players ceased to partici pate in the financial returns and the Boston men, with their lead, are eager to close the season and receive their reward. The manner In which Boston tore into the Brooklyn team this afternoon left no doubt as to their intention of ending the series as quickly as pos sible. Pitcher "Dutch" Leonard spot ted the Nationals two runs in the open ing inning, but his teammates more than made up the handicap in the sec ond session and once in the van re fused to permit the Superbas to creep upon them. The contest, although featured by several sensational plays, did not rise much above the average of a regular season contest. Once Leonard swung into form the Brooklyn batters found it impossible to push a runner around to the plate. Long, slashing hits ripped off the bats of the Red Sox to be charged against the account of Brooklyn pitchers, with splendid catches, stops and throws, made the way easy for Leonard. The Brooklyn club gave its support ers great hopes of repeating the vic tory of Tuesday when two runs were put over in the first inning on Johns ton's triple, Myers' single, a base on balls and an error by Janvrin, who, in his eagerness to get Myers at the plate, fumbled Cutshaw's grounder. Rube Marquard, Manager Robinson's selection for a second try against the Boston batters, staved off the Red Sox in the initial inning but Gardner took much of the mystery out of his deliv ery when he hammered out a home run, his second in two days, with two on bases, in the succeeding session. Marquard walked Hoblitzell. the first man up, and Lewis advanced his to third with a double to the right field wall. Gardner then cleaned up with his homer, a drive to deep center. The Red Sox added another tally in the fourth when Lewis singled, went to second on Gardner's sacrifice and scored on Manager Carrigan's single. Another was added in the fifth when Cheney, who replaced Marquard in the box after Pfeffer had batted for the former, passed Hooper, who stole (Continued on Page Six.)

WHEN NEEDED IN WAR President Issues Statement Describ ing the Council's Chief Functions, and Adds That the Time of Some of the Members of the Advisory Board Could Not Be Purchased; That They Serve the Government With out Remuneration, Efficiency Being Their Sole Object and Americanism Their Only Motive. ON BOARD PRESIDENT WIL SON'S SPECIAL; HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 11.—President Wilson, en route to Indianapolis tonight, announced the appointment of members of the advisory commission to be associated with the council of national defense, created by congress at the last ses sion. At the same time he gave out a statement saying he hoped the coun cil will "become a rallying point for civic bodies working for the national defense."

Martin, of Chicago; Howard E. Coffin of De troit; Bernard Baruch of New York; Dr. Hollis Godfrey of Philadelphia and Julius ltosenwald of Chicago. The president's statement follows: "The council of national defense has been created because the congress has realized that the country is best pre pared for war when thoroughly at peace. From an economic point of view, there is now very little differ ence between the machinery re quired for commercial efficiency and that required for military purposes. In both cases the whole industrial mechanism must be organized in the most effective way. Upon this con ception of the national welfare the council is organized In the words of the act for "the creation of relations which will render possible in time of need the immediate concentration and utilization of the resources of the nation. The organization of coun cil likewise opens up a new and direct channel of communication and co-op eration between business and scien tific men and all departments of the government, and it is hoped that it will, in addition, become a rallying point for civic bodies working for the national defense. "The council's chief functions are: "1—The co-ordination of all forms cti transportation and the develop ment of means of transportation to meet the military, industrial and com mercial needs of the nation. "2—The extension of the industrial mobilization work of the committee on industrial preparedness of the naval consulting board. Complete informa tion as to our present manufacturing and producing facilities adaptable to many-sided issues of modern warfare will be procured, analyzed and made use of. "One of the abjects of the council will be to inform American manu facturers as to the part which they can and must play in national emer gency. It is empowered to establish at once and maintain through subor dinate bodies of specially qualified persons an auxiliary organization com posed of men of the best creative and administrative capacity, capable of mobilizing to the utmost the resources of the country. "The personnel of the council's ad visory members, appointed without regard to party, marks the entrance of the non-partisan engineer and pro fessional man into American govern mental affairs on a wider scale than ever before. It is responsive to the increased demand for and need of business organization in public mut ters and for the presence there of the best specialists in their respec tive fields. In the present instance, the time of some of the members of the advisory board could not be pur chased. They serve the government without remuneration, efficiency being their sole object and Americanism their only motive."

E. CHURCH Mrs. Florence Meadows, wife of A1 leu Meadows, a bride of six weeks was found dead by the side of the road near the Harding ranch about three miles from her home on the old Cam eron place, thirty-five miles northeast of Lewistown.

Dr. Fauls who was returning to Roy about 4 o'clock Saturday after noon after responding to a call to j the Harding ranch to set the leg of a man who had been injured during the morning suddenly came upon the body of Mrs. Meadows by the side of the road. Every possible means of resuscitation was resorted to hut in spite the fact life had been extinct but a short time the effort was of no avail. The doctor and the man accom panying him then placed the body in their conveyance and returned to the Harding ranch where identification was established. They then took the body to Roy, notifying Justice of the Peace Clow immediately upon their arrival there. Justice Clow tele phoned to Coroner Creel noti fying him of the accident who in turn communicated with Gilt Edge in ' an effort to apprise the husband who was supposed to be there of the acci dent. Mrs. Meadows, who was prior to her marriage Florence Barbee, was a daughter of George Barbee and Mrs. Kate Barbee, and was born in the state of Washington about 22 years ago. She had lived with her parents for the past twelve years and during that time had achieved a reputation as a wonderfully clever horsewoman. Her horsewonianship had attracted wide attention and on various occa sions efforts had been made to per suade her to ride in competitive con tests in this country and in Canada. She is survived by her father and mother, one sister, I.oa Barbee, who conducts the Diamond rooming house of this city, and three brothers, Dan Martin and William Barbee.

In recovering it is supposed that tho animal's quick movement threw the rider, who alight ed on her bead. Her neck was broken and the fall caused concussion of the brain. She never moved after striking the ground and the reinB were still held in her nerveless hand when nrs. (Continued on Page Five.) SWINDLEHURST AND EVANS AD DRESS BIG GATHERING AT ARMORY HALL. ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE DEMOCRATS One of the most attentive and appre ciative audiences which has attended any political meeting during the pres ent campaign greeted Congressman John M. Evans and Thomas M. Swindlehurst in the Armory hall last evening. Senator J. E. I-ane acted as chairman of the meeting and in a very few well chosen words introduced Mr. Swindlehurst, the first speaker of the evening, whose address was a very brief, logical argument in support of the democratic party, nationally, and in the state and county. His review of the accomplishments of the nation al and state administrations brought forth round after round of applause, and his advocacy of the establishment of a farm loan hank In Montana in stead of St. Paul particularly pleased his audience. A plea for the loyal support of Governor Stewart was made by Mr. Swindlehurst, as he laid particular emphasis on his devotion to the state and his upbuilding of its institutions. In closing he asked the support of ills audience not because the men on the democratic ticket were democrats but because they represent ed democratic policies and democratic principles. Congressman Evans, the next speak er, carried the audience with him. He, too, was interrupted time and again by applause. Mr. Evans spoke earnest ly and delivered his address in a mas terly manner. Mr. Evans' Address. Mr. Fivans spoke in part as fol lows: 'The first great piece of legislation undertaken was a revision of the tar riff. The motive actuating the demo cratic party in revising the tariff was that of the public good. Republican revisions, as a rule, considered the welfare of the protected interests ns paramount and the interests of the people as a mere incident. The demo crats put the people above every other consideration and presented the coun try witli a tariff for revenue. Prom ises were redeemed (l)gby an enlarged free list (2), by lower duties on other goods and (3), by an income tax. Income Tax. "in connection witli the Underwood tariff acts this administration passed and put into effect an income lax law. Under the operation of this statute the wealthy and well to do pay into the treasury every year two hundred million dollars in taxes on their enor mous incomes, which formerly went scot free. Under republican rule, this gigantic sum was raised by means of a tariff on food and clothing, which were largely consumed by the plain people. Under democratic law, this burden lias been shifted from tho poor man's bending to the broad shoul ders of those whose net incomes are in excess of $:'.,0o0 a year. What law could be more popular than this? What measure could be more just? What statute could more effectually lighten tile load of those who strug gie for their daily bread? Will any republican candidate for office ad vocate a repeal of this law? Farm Loan Bill.
