1 HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH LXXXITI — No. 241 ITHIETICS TRYING "TO REGAIN HONORS LOST IN FIRST GAME Today's Contest Is the Most Important of the Series to Philadelphians GEO. STALLINGS IS CONFIDENT Betting in Shibe Park Was Even on Outcome of Cham pionship Series By Associated Press Shibe Park. Philadelphia, Oct. 10.— The Boston Braves. National League pennant winners, victorious in the opening engagement of the world's series campaign of 1914, gave battle upon Shibe field again to-day with the Philadelphia Athletics. Twenty thou sand persons viewed the fray and cheered the American league cham pions in their efforts to turn the for tunes of battle in their favor, and thereby place the two contenders for the season's baseball honors on even terms. To-day's game was almost crucial for the Athletics. A defeat meant that Boston would open their two-day home stay in Fenway Park on Monday with only two more victories needed to clinch the big title in baseball, while the Athletics would be forced to strug gle desperately to take four full games to take the world's series. Rotting was even to-day on the outcome of the series. "We have looked the Athletics over; taken their measure in the first game and beaten up their big gun Bender," said Manager Stallings. of the Boston club, before the game. "We will win the series. It's Tyler or James to-day. Either can make the Athletics throw their bats away." Plank On Mound The Athletics looked to Eddie Plank's cross-fire to crumple up the Bostons' onslaught to-day. The \et eran southpaw dinger was Manager Mack's early choice for the tiring line. "We'll be out there to-day lighting all the way," said Shortstop JacK Barry, of the Athletics. "Our club comes back quickly after defeat and we won't look like the same team when we get to hitting." The day was built for baseball. The sun dried up the moist clouds during the morning and shone brilliantly upon the soft greens of the in and out fields. An August temperature pre saged the workout of the players in iprartice and a fast fielding game. % The two teams went about their bat ing and llelding practice with zest and a degree of speed and nrtisanship that promised a smart and grimly fought contest. Plank and Schang were announced as the batteries for the Athletics; James and Gowdv were announced as the batteries for Boston. Umpire Hildebrand gave the de cisions behind the plate, while Byron gave the decisions on the bases; em pire Klem went to left field and Um pire Dineen went to right.

The siege occupied ten days. No details of the German occupation have been made known. A dispatch from The Hague says that the city surrendered at 2.30 o'clock Friday afternoon. A German official communication com ing by way of London says that the "town since midday (Friday) has been in our possession." The British war office announces that "Antwerp was evacuated by the Belgians yesterday." The French official statement ko-day says only that it is announced that Antwerp was taken yesterday but that the conditions under which it was occupied by the Germans are not yet known. To-day's news dispatches indicate that early reports of the damage done by the bombardment probably were exaggerated and that the cathedral of Xotre Dame and other historic structures may have escaped injury. It is believed in London that the final resistance was made by a small garrison which was sacrificed in order to permit the escape of the Belgian army which is now reported to be somewhere between Antwerp and Ostend trying to make its way to the lines of the allies. ' German aggression at various places along the line of the field fighting is reported from Paris which however, declares that the battle continues under satisfactory conditions. The announcement of the French war office says that the entire battlefront of the allies has been maintained in spite of violent attacks by the Germans at several points. CAVALRY FIGHTING ON LEFT Cavalry fighting on the left wing of the allies between La Bassee and Cassel continues without notable result. Progress to the north of the Oise and in the region of St. Mihiel is claimed for French arms. Paris reports also partial success by the Russians on the east Prussian frontier and that the siege of Przemysl continues under conditions favorable to the Russians. A news dispatch from Russian Poland says that a Russian at tack extending from Wilkowyszki along a front of sixty miles to a nvint below Lyck, East Prussia, was repulsed, the Russians losing fieavily while the German losses were light. A dispatch from Amsterdam asserts that Germany is expecting momentarily a declaration of war upon her by Portugal. Athens reports that a German officer has arrived at Damascus and has taken over the direction of the Syrian general staff. He is also recruiting Bedouins. Christian refugees are reported as arriving at Cyprus from Turk ish ports. They report great unrest in Turkey. The trial of the assassins of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his consort will be opened in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia, on Monday. Twenty-one Servians and four Crotians, ten of the total being under 20 jears of age are assued of high treason.
