[Special to The Times-Dispatch.]
Philadelphia, Pa., October 15.?The
scene shifts now, In the gratis struggle
for the world's baseball championship
of 1911, and tho second and very Im?
portant game between the Athletics,
American League pennant winners, and
New York, National League champions,
will be atlaged at Shlbe Park, 'n the
Quaker City. This will give the Mack
inen tho advantage?if such It may be
called?of playing before their home
people and on the grounds which they
know, and call their own.
There seems to -ijc some question
about tho weather. But I think It will
take a hard rain previous to the giuiie
to ca.u&o a postponement. It probably
will be cola, the weather sharps aay,
but thai Is to bo expected during a
ecrles of games in October, and will
handicap both teams alike.
Duel Will lie Sensntlouol.
Jack Coombs, the pitching hero of
tho 1!>10 world's series, when he beat
the Chicago Cubs lureu times, will un?
doubtedly be the Athletics' pitcher. IL
it> a, sate guess that Now Vora will de?
pend upon "Rube" ^.I-r^uard, McUraw's
loft-bander. And mat duel, wall? not
likely to be as sensational as the one
between iier.aer dim Aiuinewson on fcii
urday In Now 1'ork, wjll be hard
fought, 1 think. j
To-morrow's gaico will have a big
bcuring on the ultimate result of the
11*11 series. As the writer stated after
Saturday's game in Thu Times-Dis?
patch, bhould the Giants win the sec?
ond contest it would mean that mcy
wpuid probably win the champTonshlp.
Eut if tho Ainletics are victorious it
will revive their confidence und put
them on a par wltii New York une
taste of the awueta of victory willl
whet the appetites of the American
Leaguers and start their bats to work
as of yore.
The Athletics need to do some bat?
ting to-morrow. A team so powcrtul
offensively will turely get going, and
?while 1 do not know just what tho
fcecret of Murquard's success la, he lias
to be a wcntler to prevent Biuushlng
drives from Athletic bats, when the
team which will take, the Held Is con?
sidered. Barring Harry Jjavis, who
played In but few games during the
neason, and Jack Barry, who Is al?
ways dangcroub, there will be seven
men playing who batted over .300 dur- 1
ing tho 1911 season. Of course, that
Includes the catcher. Jack Lapp, and
Coombs, the flinger. And that buuch,
does not mind <- southpaw, either.
Intleld Cp to Form,
Harry Davis played a grund game
yesterday, and may be a bigger factoi
than lotB of people thought In the
series. He soused every ball hard, und
It was his single which scored the Ath
letlcs" run. His fielding was all thas
could be desired and he was as, steady
as a clock. The injield, 1 am confident
win bo up to form when the teams take
tho field to-morrow.
It should be remembered that the
Athletics have a bunch of Bhrewd
thinkers. In the conference which hus
been held, chey have undoubtedly been
able to point out and lay plans to cor?
rect mistakes made yesterday. They
havo not quit because of defeat, but
are going into the fray with even'
greater determination, because they 1
know how necessary If is to win.
Let me say, though, that the Giants,]
?with the shrewd McGraw to do the
thinking, have undoubtedly discussed
the situation, too, and have laid some
plans. They lost thar nervousness ap?
parent when they took the Held as]
yesterday's game went along, and they
saw that they had a chance for victory.!
And confidence which has possibly;
cume with the one victory, will make
them a team of aggressors In the sec- j
ond contest.
Kveutful Series In tlnseball.
There Is no reason, despite the first
result, to change my original opinion
that this series of 1911 will be an event-]
ful one in the history of baseball. The
Athletics still have two strung cards In]
Coombs and Plank. And there is a
chance that we will see another sen
HiLttonal battle between those masters
of the pitching art, Bender and Ma- !
thewson. Since It might be sain that
tho "breaks of tho game." lost for tnai
wonderful Indian In his first appear- '
nncc, he might be the fortunate muni
the next time. Would It not be a grund
sight to see the crafty workman. Ben?
der, and tho conservative Mathe? son
meet later in a contest upon which trie
title of the world's champion* hinged?
It Is quite possible.
While there is nothing definite as yet
If the strained tendon which caused
Merkle, the Nevf York first baseman,
to go lame' late in yesterday's contest,
Devlin will probably replace him ut
first. Yen McGraw will hardly kc?P
Merkle out, .-unless he knows that he
Is unfit to do his part In the game.
New York has tasted Ilrst blood, und
the National League champions and
their followers nre 'very happy to-day,
But should Coombs pitch and win to?
morrow. Philadelphia will tust? second
blood, and that Is ./ist about the same
thing. It will again start "the team*
on an equal basin In the wonderful
Otrugglc for the honors,. Wait and ?ee

Cones Involving Million? of Dollars
Will lie Heard.
Washington, October 15.?Claims In?
volving millions of dollars, and suits
agulnai the Federal government, in
which claimants are trying to secure
patent royalties and damages of other
kinds, await the decision by the United {
States Court of Claims, which begins
its fall Kcsslon to-morrow. The most '
Important case approaching decision
is the claim of the Missouri. Kans?
and Texas Railroad to damages oi j
161,287,000 for lands which It declares
were originally granted to the rail?
road and afterwards granted by the
government to Indians.
One of the Interesting cases soon
to be argued before t'r>o Court of
Claim; is the demand of Frank G.
Farrtham, of Honesdale, Fa, for roy?
alties on the method used by the gov?
ernment in preparing the- stamp book
sold at all post-offices. Mr. Farnham
claims to have Invented the method of
binding the books, and the government
Is paying no royalty.
The claim of Captain John J. Knapp,
United States Navy, for patent royal?
ties of 1150,000 for a safety apparatus
now used In battleships to prevent ex?
plosions In the turrets also has been
argued, and Is awaiting decision.
Still another large claim against the
government Is that of the Purcell En?
velope Company, which claims that a
contract of the company with the Post
Offlce Department was ignored when
Charles Emory Smith became Post- j
master-General. The company wants
150'.',000 damages.
Claims brought against the govern?
ment must be tried in the Court of
Claims, with the government's con?
sent, as Ohe United States cannot be
sued In ordinary courts or against Its
will. During the summer 408 new
cases were brought before the court
for hearing at the regular term, which
opens In the District of Columbia.
More than ;-; cases are pending on
the calendar that will bo taken up
when the court resumes to-morrow.
Among these are forty-five French
spoliation claims, similar to those re?
fused by Congress last winter.
Misunderstanding of Order? Believed
to Be Itenponalblr.
Omaha. Neb.. October 15.?Seven per?
sons were killed and twenty-two In?
jured, four of (them seriously. In a col?
lision between a northbound Missouri
Pacific passdnger train and a fast
freight train at Fort Crook early to
day, ten miles south of this city. The
accident is believed to have resulted
from a misunderstanding of orders on
the part of the freight crew.
A relief train was sent to the scene
of the accident at once, carrying Dr.
Klinek, local surgeon for the Missouri
Pacific raod, and a staff of Union Pa?
cific surgeons.
Shortly before noon the relief train
returned with the uninjured and sev?
eral of those who were slightly In?
jured. Of these all were sent on their
way. The more seriously Injured are
being cared for at the army hospital
at Fort Crook.
Governor Gllchrlst, of Florida, was
a passenger on the northbound train,
but was uninjured.

That the statement of John Arbuckle.
New York sugar refiner and coffee
magnate, that he will go before Con?
gress next winter to fight for free
sugar. Is the beginning of the first
genuine battle between t'he bo#t sugar
manufacturers and the can sugar re?
finers. Is the declaration of Clarence
C. Hamlin, chairman of the executive
committee of the United States Beet
Sugar Industries. In a statement made
public here to-day.
Mr. Hamlin stated that while the
condition of the sugar market this
year has been bad. it would have been
'.'infinitely worse but for the 500,000
tons of beet sugar America produces."
It is this great industry, the one
which Senicor Bristow said was the
best justification for a protective tariff,
that the can sugar rellners are seek?
ing to destroy, he said.

Peking. October 16.?Tho Chinese j

to permit correspondents to accompany

Ihere is one unhappy student In the
Marshall College here. He h?s been
at work nearly all the afternoon, and
his task has been a laborious one?
he has been trying to scrub off his
resemblunce to a golden image. Yes?
terday he was r^ady to take his bath
In the dormitory when a number of
sophonv-ires, whose displeasure he had
Incurred, entered the room. After
dumping a bottle of liquid gilt into the
bathtub they ducked the freshman
several times. Then they strapped the
young man on a couch in the sun and
allowed the shining cout to dry.
While remorseful over, the affair, es?
pecially when he takes a look at his

Pay Tribute to Cardinal
Gibbons at Beginning
of Dual Jubilee.
From All Parts of This Country
and Foreign Lands Illustrious
Catholics Come to Honor
Head of Church in United
States?Fifty Years in
Baltimore. Md., October' 15_In the!
cathedral here, where titty years ago
he was ordained a priest, then suc?
cessively consecrated a bishop, Invest?
ed with the pallium of an archbishop,
and. tw.enty-llve years after his ordi?
nation, received the red bcretta of a
cardinal, James Cardinal Gibbons,
Archbishop of Baltimore, to-aay re?
ceived hontigc from illustrious pre?
lates and laymen trom alt parts of
this country an<j foreign lands.
The ecclesiastical t..ration of the
cardinal's dual jubilee b*giin this
morning with pontincal high mass,
celebrated by the curaiuai, with Rev.
William a. Fletcher. p. !_>., rector of
the cathedral, as deacon, und Rev. V.
C. Gavan, chancellor of the arch?
diocese, as subdeucon. Archbishop
John J. Glennon, of ist. ivouis, uenvered
the sermon.
A Glowing Tribute.
The sermon of Archbishop Glennon
was a glowing tribute to the card'nsl's
life and achievements, covering the
period of fifty years which have
elapsed since Ills Eminence waa or?
dained a priest In 1S61.
In the course of his remarks the
archbishop turned to the subject ol
education, expounding the Catholic idea
of the question. He held that the aim
of education is the acquisition of
truth, ns opposed to the view of oth?
ers that It is merely the obtaining
of knowledge.
"The church, also being a teaching
church, ' said Archbishop Glennon on
this point, "Is vitally Interested In tho
mutter of education and educational
movements. On general terms, there?
fore, it is In accord with the spirit of
the age.
"But wc differ, however, when it
comes to the question of dote anlning
whereln'true education life. The Cath?
olic idea is that the aim of education
Is the acquisition of truth; the Others
that it is merely the obtaining of
knowledge. We hold that Its curricu?
lum should include truth Catholic and
unl vertat 1. natural and revealed; tho
others that It should bo confined to.
sclentinc knowledge chiefly of ma?
terialistic order. We, furthermore, hold
that the imparting of truth should be
In the order In which trui".". comes to
us. and first should be the 'first cause,'
our Father who is In heaven. and
after that whatever nature, science, or
history may tell us; preserving a
unity In all truths. Importing and
giving to that education, therefore, a
logical form and development.
"It Is on these broad lines that the
Catholic educational system of Amer?
ica has been projected, and these last
fifty years mark practlcnlly its begin?
ning, its growth and Its present-day
magnlricent proportions."
The music was chiefly Gregorian,
though there were Intervals of figured
music, and orchestral Instruments were
employed in tho choir, relieving to a
certain extent tho sombre color of the
palestrian harmonies.
Ablaze With Candles.
The decorations were confined to
the sanctuary. The main altar was
ablaze with hundreds of candles, and
radiant wlfh thousands of Bermuda
lilies. Over the altar were the arms
of the church, with the dates of the
Jubilee. 1861, 1886 and 1311. Under
them war, the Latin Motto: "Jubllemus
Deo Salutarl Nostro"?Let us rejoice
unto God, Our Saviour."
In the procession, which for impres
slveness. probably never has been sur?
passed In this country, were nine of
America's twelve archbishops and
about thirty bishops. Included among
the archbishops were Dlomede Fal
conlc. the apostolic delegate, and Paul
Bruchesl, of Montreal. Among the
bishops were Hugh MacShcrry. of
South Africa. There were three
civilians in the line. They were W.
E. Manklns, of New York, who re?
ceived the decoration of Knighthood
in the order of St. Gregory, at the
hands of the Pope. He wore a scarlet
waistcoat, on which gleamed a numhor
of Joweled decorations which he has
received. The other two civilians were
Arlstldes Leonardl, of Rome, and Ed?
ward Du Moe, of Philadelphia, both
of whom wore tho scarlet coats of
apostolic chancellors and inarched
beside the apostolic delegates.
Following the mass, dinner was
served to the visiting clergy at St.
Mary's Seminary. In response to a
toast proposed for Pope Plus, Arch?
bishop Falconlo, the Papal delegate,
said that up to the time of the pros
ent Pontiff's election, "society at large
was distracted by a spirit of Innova?
tion and unwholesome liberty; that
a vastly extended and most dangerous
organization of modernistic Ideas was
undermining the most fundamental
truths of th? Christian religion, and
that problems of the highest Import?
ance for the welfare of tho church atyj
of society were uwalttng a 8pecdy so?
God Provides Pope Pins.
"There was required, then," said
] the archbishop, "a man of apostolic
I zeal, a man coming from the ranks
of tho people, who could fully under
, stand their wants and direct the
movements of the advancing demo?
cracy; a man of Christian courage and
I of stern determination, able to protect
1 the rights of the church and religious
llborty against Irreligious legislation

Toronto. October 15.?The feature
of the Sunday services of the Ecumen?
ical Methodist Conference was the ad?
dress to-night by Sir Robert Perks,
of Liondon, England, on "Methodist
Brotherhood." Referring ? the ap?
pointment of an International Meth?
odist committee, sanctioned by the
conference last week. Sir Robert said:
? I consider this the most Important
and far-reaching step for world good
taken by Methodism since the days of
Wesley- This committee of, one hun?
dred should be the central war coun?
cil of the most militant and progres?
sive church In the world. Through
its systematized plans the great
;uethodlst churches henceforth should
work In union."
What the International Methodist
Brotherhoo i should attempt to do
from the top. the Methodist Brother?
hood should attempt to do from the
bottom. Sir Robert said
"The Methodist Brotherhood." he
continued, "must seek to unite In one
vast, religious freemasonry, for mu?
tual help, the people of Methodism
in every city, town and hamlet of
the world." i
As to the urgent need of the
brotherhood's work, Sir Robert felt
that there should bo no doubt. "There
must be mobilization of the churches
to solve the new social and economic
problems. Throughout the world
there is industrial discontent. Social
revolution is Doldly preached. In some
lands the guardians of. the law ap?
pear panic-stricken. There Is an -In?
creasing worship of brute force. Only
the church can' control things. It
must preach the.simple undiluted gos?
pel of Christ. But also It must recog?
nize that man Is the unit of sollety
I* must study and aid the individual,
change oftentimes his outlook, and
Ideals, better his surrounding, live
what Is preached nnd overthrow tho
tyranny of materialism, and force by
the honest, fearless living of the gos?
A growing materialism, a demand
for recreation and an unsettling of
faith wore ascribed at a large mass
meeting of the conference this after?
noon as some of the causes of de?
plorable desecration of the Sabbuth.
The speakers were Rev. W. J. Young,
of Danville, Vn., nnd Rev. A. J.

Fought Against Illness. . .
Bishop Van dc Vyver took a six
weeks' trip abroad late In tue sum?
mer. ? He returned to the city the last
I week lu September. His indisposition
wus Hi st noticed at the service'at'the
I Cathedral of the Sacred Heart on Sun
I day morning, October I, when he ap?
peared to other priests taking part
J In the long communion service to be
weak and hardly able to stand. He
fought off disease for several days,
however, and It was not until the lat?
ter part of that week that he con?
sented to summon physicians. Since
then ho has nattled valiantly with u
, general breakdown, due to ? ugc and
I the Infirmities: which accumulate at
the close of an active and vigorous
life. Some days he rallied and took
an interest in his surroundings. on
others he lay apparently In a stupor,
surrounded at all' times by loving
hands of the priests of the dlocesa,
as uell as by skilful nurses and phy?
Prayers In the Churches.
For tho last week a physician was
always within call, nulle the nurses
in charge never left his side.
1'rayers were offered for his recov?

all sources, clergymen and laymen
calling at the residence er wiring from

hour yesterday while a reporter for
The Times-Dispatch tulked with him
ut his residence In South Richmond,
he never lifted his voice In anger,
even when lie reached the point of
giving the most emphatic denial to
the printed story that he hod asked a
Council committee for permission to
bury Henry Clay Beattie. Jr.. In Mau
ry Cemetery after his body comes from
the chair of death.
Oazed by What lie ItenU.
"When 1 tlrst read that cruel state?
ment In the newspaper." said Mr.
Beattie, "I was simply duzed. 1 could
not understand it?could not believe
I my own eyes. As you recall, It was
I made to appear that 1 had given up
>ull hope, that I was satisfied Henry
Clay would bo put tu death, and that
1 was arranging for his funeral, even
while the case was still pending in a
higher court. It was printed that the
committee held a secret meeting' at
which thu burial request was made
by one who was speuking for me. The
whole thing was so brutal und cold
blooded that it must have Bent a
shudder through the public breast.
But what hurt most was the fact that
It was not true.
"My first move after 1 saw the pub?
lication was to tlnd out whether any
Buch meeting had ever been held,
"'hen I undertook to tlnd out by whoso
authority Councilman I'atroni mado
the request. I must say, however. In
justice to t> 1 in thut Mr. Patram was
uctuatrd throughout by a spirit of
kindness und friendship, nc had read
the city code, he knew the law, and
out of the goodness of his heart he
was endeavoring to suvc us from n
most embarrassing experience.
Deeply Hurt by Report.
"But 1 am sure he would not have
brought up the question at all had
he suspected that it would be purnded
In the newspapers. Some days later I
wrote a short curd to one of the news?
papers asking for a correction. This
was published, but It did not get i. -
same prominence by any means that
was given the ilrst article. My friends
have since Informed me that the Ilrst
story about the burial permit has been
sent broadcast, and accepted by the
public wiv.iout question, us very few
saw the denial printed in small type
on an Inside page. For that reason
nlonc 1 have discussed with Mr. H. W.
Smith, Jr., ano he has approved tho
propriety of asking Tho Times-Dis)
patch tu do me the justice of denying
In Its news colup-ns statements which
are untrue, unfair and misleading.
"I have no personal grievance
against the newspapers, but some
limes 1 doubt If they can appreciate
tho extent of this sorrow which hangs
over my home. They tried and con?
victed my boy long boforc the enso
reached the Jury?long before the jury
was summoned. But 1 do ;.sk now for
some consideration. If i had been
called over the telephone before that
cemetery article was printed there
would be no occasion now for me
to parade my sorrow before the public
simply that justice may be done those
of us who arc sorely ultilctcd."
Mill Believes lu Sun.
Mr. [Seattle's whole speech and man?
lier showed convincingly that ho still
believes in hid boy's Innocence, not?
withstanding the verdict und the sent?
ence. But he had no unkind word to
say about the Jury, tho court or the
men who worked up the case against
his son- "Tho matter Is now before
the Supreme Court of Appeals," ho
said, "and there Is Stilt hope."
Taking up another phase of tho case
which has caused him great distress,
Mr. Beattie mentioned an alleged In?
terview with Henry, in which the lul
tcr was quoted as -suylng that he
would die like a man. that he would
j willingly turn on the electric switch
In the death chambor and show the
people that he was not afraid.
Gave So Such Interview,
"This Interview," ho said, "did not
take place. The newspaper said that
It got Its Information from one of
Henry's friends who had called to see
him at the City Jail, I tulked iat-r
Henry, and he told mo th:it he had
said absolutely nothing of tho kind.
It is hard to deny nnd denounce all
tne unkind und untrue things which
