(Copyright. 1811, the Press Company.) Philadelphia, Pa., October 26.? Fighting with the determination of a lion cornered and forced to make a desperate struggle to get free. tn* Athletics. American Leagut champions won the title of world's baseball cham plena this afternoon at Shlbe Park This Is the second successive victory tor the Athletics over the representa? tives of the National League in a bit tie for the highest baseball honors To win the world's championship foi 1911, the Athletics this afternoon bat tered to only a semblance of a bubo ball team the New York Giants, pen nan 1 winners In the National Leag'.e The crack of Mack bats ab base hits rang out merrily out-smothered Mo Graw's hopes after the third inning of the contest, and the carnage continu? ed until the final score stood 13 to 2 In favor of the Athletics, when the cur? tain was rung down on this wonderful Barles of 1811. Manager Mack certainly took a gam? bler's chance when ho sent his remark? able Indian pitcher, Bender, to the mound to win this decisive game. But how nobly tho '"Chief" responded to the faith put in him is now a chapter ln baseball history. Surprise was ap? parent everywhere 'when Bender was announced as tho twlrler at the start of the game. It hud been generally believed and understood that liddlr Plank would be chosen. First of all j Plank had not worked since Mondny.i October 16, with the exception ol that final Inning in New York yesterday. And it is a well known tact that the nervous southpaw Is usually more ef? fective when working before a home crowd. ludlaii Too Cautious. Bender, on the other hand, is alwa>s at his best after a good rest. He can? not be worked too often. Tho Chief had pitched on Tuesday, and was In a hard game then, too. Now here Is how Manager Mack gambled: He sent Bender In to oppose the Giants, knowing that if the Indian lost the series would be tied, und he had only plank, Morgan, Krause and' two young recruits to put In the bjx] In New York to-morrow to capture tho final and deciding game. Coombs was in bed unable to walk as u result of an Injury received In yesterday's game. Indeed, I think Manager Mack "cut tho cards" and trusted that the "ace" would show. Yet I want to pay this tribute to Bender: It must have been supreme confidence in tho ability of tho Indian to win the game and end the series which made him the pitching selection. "When Bender started, I think he was too careful, j He knewv how^-much de ponded upon the cunning of his good right arm. He failed to get the usual "breaks" on his ball, and seemed to be alarmed about his support, which wavered somewhat. Although the run which the Giants scored In the first In? ning was tho direct result of a fumble, every ball the New Yorkers hit was a ?lashing drlvo which wbh not easy to handle. Although during the first three or four inning*, I was thlnfclitgr that the "Chief" was going to havo his troubles.

Broad Street Methodist, First Presbyterian and Seventh Street Christian Found to Be in Dangerous Condition. Formal Notice Served on Officers. Wooden frame steeples on Broad Street Methodist, First Presbyterian j ana Seventh Street Christian Churches were summarily condemned yesterday by Building Inspector Beck, and ord ered removsd at once. The steeple on Broad Street Methodist Church is re? garded as especially dangerous, in specilon of the Interior showing that many of tho supporting beams hKve| slipped out of place, and the inspecting officers express doubt as to whether it would stand In the event of a sharp storm. The other two are not regard? ed as Immediately dangerous, though specimens of worm-eaten and lifeless wood are on exhibition at the otilce if the Building Inspector. The Inspection of the church steeples will go on promptly. Grace Street Presbyterian and Clay Street Methodist Church steeples have been examined and found In good order and of sufficient strength Trinity Methodist la now under crlti-j cal examination, and if it is not ord- j ered down, it will have to undergo! some repairs. Dangerous Conditions Found. ' Several days ago the attention of the Building Inspector's office was called j to the condition of Broad Street Metho. | d]st, at Tenth and Broad Sts., one of the! oldest church buildings in the centra] section of the city?a companion struc? ture to the First Baptist, Monumental Episcopal and the old First Presbyter lan, which formerly occupied the pres? ent City Hall site. Deputy Inspector Phillips was assigned to the work, and because of Its peculiarly dangerous and difficult character, and of the import? ance of thorough work, Mr. Beck em Ployed Edward Dyson, formerly fore? man for the John T. Wilson Construc? tion Company, to assist In the Inspec? tion of all steeples. Broad Street Methodist, an old wooden frame affair of antiquated type, was found utterly worm-eaten and rotten; so much so that the Interior beams were in some places hardly strong enough to sup? port the weight of the inspectors as| thay climbed from beam to beam In the uppermost recesses of the spire far above the little door through which painters usually swing their ladders for outside repairs. Building Itself tn Dsatjer. The condition of this steeple is held to endanger the church building itself and the surroundings, Including the City Hall, just opposite, and formal notice was at once served on L. T. Christian, chairman of the board of trustees, directing him to have . tho 180-foot structure from tts base to apex removed at once as a menace to public safety. Mr. Beck said he had not determined as yet whether to al? low the auditorium of the church to be used pending the changes. It will depend on the character of scaffolding erected in removing the spire. In hin letter to Major Christian, Mr. Beck says: "Tho main columns as well as the brace timbers were found to be in a very decayed and worm-entvn i condition, making this part of tho church a very unsafe proposition, and' one that demands Immediate attention."! It Is reported that there Is a consid? erable movement among the members' of Broad Street Methodist Church to', sell the old building and move to son.e uptown location, leaving Centenary ;.s the only downtown Methodist Church. Two Others condemned. Letters of formal notification wore also sent yesterday to Henry W. Wood, president of the board of deacons of; the First Presbyterian Church, at' Madison and (.race Streets, calling his, attention to the "dilapidated and un? safe condition of the wooden spire." which is described as "decayed and worm-eaton and unsafe," and the In? spector directs its "immediate removal forthwith." A similar letter wa? sent' to T. M. Hundley, chairman of the of-' flclal board of the 8eventh Street' Christian Church.

Peking. October 26.?The throne to? day surrendered to the Tsu-Oheng Yuan. China's National Assembly, and lu compliance with Its demands dis? missed Sheng-Hsuan-IIuat. Minister of Posts and Communications: ordered Prince Chlng, president of the Cabinet, before a board of Inquiry, where ho doubtless will be severely dealt with; released from custody" the president of the Sze-Chuen Provincial Assembly, and other leaders In the riots at Cheng Tu, and, In fact, agreed to all that the Assembly asked, with lack of dignity inconceivable to Western observers. The edict promulgating these orders has been read with regret by the for? eigners, especially those, who were as? sociated with Sheng-Hsuan-Huai In negotiations for loans and in reforms, which brought about his downfall. Sheng-Hsuan-Huai has been stripped of his rank; Prince Chlng. the Prime Minister, and Na-Tung and Hsu-Shlh Chang, Vice Prime Ministers, as well us sevoral viceroys, have been handed over to an Inferior board for consid? eration as to their guilt in causing the present rebellion, while members of the Provincial Assembly, who provoked the uprisings in Sze-Chucn, have been released from prison. Jtei-ognlrr* Defeat. The edict repeats over the throne's seal the allegations and charges made against the Minister of Posts and Com? munications and others made by a heated, radical and controlled Assem? bly, but Chinese affairs cannot be Judg-id by Western standards. It will be considered here, however, that the throne acted wisely, that it recognized Its defeat and submitted to force. The appointment of Tang-Shao-YI to suc? ceed .Sheng-Hsuan-Huai Is believed to forecast the appointment of Yuan-Shl Kal to the second office In the Cabinet, if not to tho premiership. With the prospect of Yuan-Shl-Kai. who is a Chinaman, leading the coun? try, now ruled by tho National Assem? bly, It Is evident that the Manchus mean to offer to the people complete and Immediate constitutional govern? ment In returne for cessation of hostili? ties. It is reported that Yuan is al? ready negotiating with the rebels. Members of the legations, who are old In experience In Chinese affairs, would not be surprised if the revolution ter? minated on these lines, practically without further fighting.

He will be fol? lowed In a few days by his flagship, tho Saratoga, to which he will trans? fer his quarters and proceed to give his undivided attention to directing the movements of the American ves? sels In Chinese waters, so as to secure the greatest measure of protection for Americans and Europeans The officials here are still of the opinion that tho foreigners have noth? ing to fear from the revolutionaries, who are strongely opposed to affording any pretext for foreign Intervention, such as might result, from assaults upon foreigners or the destruction of their property In China.

Trenton, N. J., October M^?The gorernment'a Inngr planned ault to break tig the eo-called atcel trust irns begnn here to-day La tho United States Circuit Court. It la the moat sweeping antitrust action ever brought by the Depart? ment of Justice. The government aaka not only for the dlasolntlon of the United Statea Steel Corporation, hut for the dissolution of all constituent os subsidiary companies which are alleged to have combined In violation of the Sherman law to "maintain or attempt to maintain a monoply of the ateel bus? iness." There are thlrtj-slx aubsldlary corporations named aa defendants. J. Plerpont Morgan. John D. Rockefeller, Charles M. Schwab, George W. Perkins, E. H. Gary, John D. Rockefeller. Jr.. Henry C. Frlcg, Charles Steele, James Gayley. William H. Moore. Edmund C Converse, Perclval Roberts, Jr., Daniel G. Reld. Norman B. Ream, P. A. B. Wldencr and William P. Palmer are named individually as defendants. The United States Steel Corporation, Carnegie Steel Company, Carnegie Company of New Jersey, Federal Steel Company, National Steel Company. American Steel and Wire Company of New Jersey, National Tube Compqay, Shelby Steel Tube Company, American Tin Plate Company, American Sheet a*d Tin Plate Company. American Sheet Steel Company, American Steel Hoop Com? pany, American Bridge Company, Lake Superior Consolidated Iron Mines, all of which were organized under the New Jersey laws, and the H. C. Frick Coke Company, Tennessee Coal and Iron Railroad Company and the Great West? ern Mining Company are named as corporate defendants. Louis W. Hill, James N. Hill. Walter J. Hill, E. T. Nichols and J. H. Gruber arc named as trustees in connection with ore companies. Groat Northern Railways ore properties, which tho directors of tho steel company to-day formally decided to csncel, are alleged to be illegal. This action of the directors was taken but a few hours beforo the riling of the bill Government Advised of Intention. The government acknowledges that It was advised of the Steel Corpora? tion's intention in this respect, but that under the terms of the lease no cancel? lation would be effeotlve until January 1, 1815, and there Is no limit upon tho amount of ore that can be taken out in the meantime. Sensational allegations fairly topple over each other In the government's petition, which Js an equity proceeding, praying for injunctions to estop con? tinuance of the alleged monopoly and euch other relief as tho court may grant. The Steel Corporation's acquisition of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Com? pany during the panic of 190S Is declared Illegal and scathingly criticized. The petition declares that E. H. Gary and Henry C. Frick misled former Presi? dent Roosevelt whon they told him that "but little benefit will come to the Steel Corporation from the purchase." "Tho President," It says, "was not made fully acquainted with the state of affairs in New York relevant to the transac? tion as thoy existed. If ho had been fully advised he would have known that a desire to stop the panic was not the sole moving cause, but that there was also a desire and purpose to acquire the control of a company that had recently assumed a position of potential competition of great significance. "It is certain that the corporation availed Itself of the embarrassment of Moore & Schley (New York brokers, who had largo holdings of Tennessee Coal and Iron Company stock! at n most critical period, ami the hammering of the Tennessee stock and the threatening of a general financial calamity, to acquire the control of a competitor taking on a formidable aspect. The corporation Ihus greatly strengthened Its control of the country's Iron oro supply, its pre? dominating position in the South's iron and steel trade, eliminated a competitor and unlawfully acquired a power which is a menace to the welfare of the coun? try, and should be destroyed." Reference to the Gary Dinners. The Gary dinners are referred to, though not by name, as meetings which accomplished more than written pools or agreements, which were frequently broken. "It was understood and agreed." says the bill, "that they (the steel manufacturers represented at the meetings) were bound to protect one another; that to carry out this purpose their honor was at stake, and that the obligation binding upon them was even dearer lhan lifo Itself, and that no one of them should net or fall to act except with a distinct and clear understanding that his honor was Involved, and that this was more binding on him than any written or verbal contract. When bidden by the chief executive of the corporation, they came at any time, from any distance, ready, willing and anxious to turn over to him and to his friends all that was In their minds and in their hearts concerning their own business." Interlocking directorates, through which those in power in the Steel Cor? poration held positions of Influence In the directorates of other powerful cor? porations, are referred to as "a method more refined, more euphonious, but nono the lees effective than pools." "Through Its directors thus distributed," eays the government's petition, "the corporation Is In direct touch with all of the large railroad and steamship companies of the United States, such powerful concerns os the Standard Oil Company, the Pullman Company, the International Harvester Company and' the Western Union Telegraph Company, and with the overwhelming majority In money and power of the banks and trust companies of the United States. The possibilities of the power and control that may thus) bo exerted over trade and commerco are Inestimable. "The power and control that have been exerted by the corporation. largely through the grasp of Its tentacles, thue thrown out upon tho consumer, com-' Petitors and capital, Is Incompatible with the healthy commercial ?|f? t,t ths> nation." The government reviowg In great detail the conditions in the steel trad*}.
