Back of the Red Sox bench were
crowded the 'fans" from Boston. They
were there to cheer and jell and they
did it with a lustiness which vied

were found in the shivering trail that
led from the yellow gates down to

Club officials estimated that there i

This early throng was formed in a
line four abreast and when the gates
were flung open Iherj was a rush
for the unreserved sections of the
lower grandstand and for the "bleach
er" seats back of the outfield. About
thirty thousand such scats wore on
sa'e today, the reserved seats having
been prevlouslv disposed of.
The Nationals are confident of the
outcome of the serlas, but at the same
time they expect to be fought until
tho last man is out.
' "No one among our bays holds the
1 Red Sox cheap," said "Chief" Meyers,
the Indian catcher, who was one of the
first players to report at the National
club bouse today.
Soon after the "chief came Math
ewson, Merkle and the other players,
for there were spikes (o be sharpen

spected. Few of the pla ers were
recognized 1n their street clothes as
they edged their way through the Jam

New York Confident.
"We naturally expect to win." said
Captain I airy Djyle, the NVw York
second baseman. "We'll try. of course,
to make It four straight, what moro
can anyone say? We hap a fine
team, one ready to make plcmv of ac
tion. "As to the Bostons Well, they
must be a good ball club to win a pen
nant. One hears much of their fine
pitching staff,' but haven"t the Giants
been hitting good pitching all year?
I think we can hit Joe Wood and the
other Red Sox hurlers. and It inrst not
bo forgotten that the Red Sox have'
yet to show whether they can hit such I
pitching as will be served by Matty. I

Manager John M. McGraw said the

Beyond the injury to Larry Gardner,
no ailments were reported to Manager
Stahl by his men when they turnod
out this morning Gardner will hold
down his old position at third base
unless his injured finger gives him
trouble. Clyde Englc will take his
place should Gardner be compelled to

Mauaser Stahl had primed Joo
Wood, his star pitcher, for duty to
day, but there wore reports that he
might Bend in Ray Collins.
"I think our season's record will
justify me In saying this mnch about
J the series with tho Giants," said
. Stahl, "and that is that there won't
be one game that our opponents will
not have to knock us down to got."
Thousands of dollars have been
wagered on the outcome of the series.
Boston was the favorite at 10 to 8
and 10 to 9. Betting this morning

excitement of tho crowd.

Batting practice was over at 1.40
o'clock and tho Giants took the dia

Wilson Says American

Norton. Kas . Oct. S. That thc
"verv men who luv.o been most suo
cessuil In building up tin- trusts also
are the ery men that hae been mos;
Biicce.sstul In pi eventing tne organi
zation of labor" was the contention
of Governor Woodrow Wilson In an
addiess here today devoted largely to
what he characterized as "the perva
sive power of the grpat Interests
which now dominate our deelop-nicnt."
"Don t you know," he asked, "that
one of the objects of their combina
tion is to control the labor market i
And do you imagine thai thoy haej
'ever sot delibeiate plans for glvin:;
I the working men anvthinj; compara
ble In the waj of wa?s to thc propo' -lion

give the laborlne; man any more than
he can get in the competition of thc
market Ak a matter of fact fonio of
the most highly productive industries
In this country nay ory much lower
wages than tho unprotected Industries
And some of the most highly protect-i
i ed industries nav wages that are be

pieces of bluff an.l humbug lhat has
ever been known In the history of po
litical deception.
Cheapest In World.
"I tell you this, that American labor
up to date Is the cheapest In the
world. 1 can prove it. American
manufacturers compote In foreign
markots in the sale of goods manu
factured In those markets, near those
markets, by labor that receives only
one-third the remuneration of Amer
ican labor. Now, what does that
mean? It means they can afford to
pay American working: mon thren
times as much and still undersoil
their competitors In the foreign mar
kets, and yet tho American work ins- mM
man is told that the amount of his H
wages depends upon tho protectjva H
tariff. When you once got to a bjb- mm
tern of regulated monopoly,. then you H
get to a system of controlled, labor. MM
Don't forget that, Narrow the lines mM
of competition and you stiffen the mW
lines of labor control H
Free Government. H
"How ar you going to get a free
government? That Is the point. Tho 1
absolute nooesBary firBt step is to dls- H
entangle It from the things with which
It has been entangled. What we want
Is free markets for our commodities M
and free markets for our labor; and
we haven't got them. "What we want is mW
free enterprise, for one thing, but wo mW
haven't got it. Vuat we want 1b free mM
competing water routes that will en- mM
ablo us to handlo the heavier kind
of our goods In transportation with- UM
out depending loo much upon the H
railway routes; and wo haven't got H
them and can get them as things IH
stand now. What we want is genu-
lne conservation of our natural re-
sources and we can't get It as things IH
Btand now. The center of our eco- IH
nomlc difficulties is that there Is not H
freedom of enterprise In the United 1
States. IH
"This Is. a year of critical choice IH
After the year 1912 It may be too late H
to turn back. Don't deceive yourself
for a moment as to the pervasive now-
er of the great Industries which now
domlnato our development. 'They are l
so great that It Is almost an 'open IH
question whether the government of mW
thc United States can dominate them H
or not Go one step further, make
their organized power permanent and l
it may be too late to turn back." I
