OAKLAND, Oct. 16.—The Eddie Smith
monument fund was considerably added
, to this afternoon as the result of the
ball game, between the Vernon and Oak
land teams. The exact amount realized
will not be known for several days,' but
kUdging I.by the attendance at the game
|,Klay it will run well into four figures,
~* The game itself • was , somewhat- of a
joke, neither side taking the'air,ise
riously, and it was easy: for -the Oaks to
, tack a 6 to 2 defeat on the striped war
rior?: who work for Happy Hogan. The
one big feature of the game was the
work of the three Oakland recruits,
Bohen* pitcher: Gleason, catcher, and
Menges; shortstop. Bohen' had the
Tigers eating out of his hand, letting
them down with eight hits and striking
out 10 .men. Manges, the Oakland high
t -'school shortstop, played a sensational
game by pulling down a number of. h^rd
chances piirj picking -off a bingle for
himself. Behind the bat Gleason showed
t nat It* will ■ht -a. valuable man to ; the
club next' year.' -;";,: • ; :
"Red Dog". Devereaux ; was; included'
in the Vernon ;:lineup, cavorting at
shortstop and. as usual, he gave an imi
tation of a circus. With Hap Hogan
following the "Red Dog" to bat, the fun
wag fast and furious, but the pair: of
„ clowns failed to rattle young Bohen. .
OrviHe Kilroy pitched five innings for
Vernon and did /nicely,- being touched
*ur only three hits, which: netted one
• tally. The Oaks crowded into the run
column *In the .second; spasm, Zacher

PHILADELPHIA. Oct. 16.—When
John Franklin Baker, third; baseman",
poled a home run over the right field
wall of Shibe park, -scoring "Eddie"
Collins, ahead of him. today, he put
the Phlledalphia* Athletics: on an-even
footing: with V the Xciv York Giants,
and the two teams will now go to
New York for the third game tomor
row in the series for the world":', base
ball , honors. —Philadelphia .-0,
New York 1. ■ Paid attendance, 26.256.
The big hit came in the sixth inning,
with- two out and "when the fighting
Athletics „ad touched up' Pitcher Mar
quard of the National league, cham
pions : ■ for ' only ~ three hits. . Batter's
smasji was the last in the game for
the. American." leaguers,. but it was
enough. - ■ .• " '~; . ■'*-.'.
And just as important as Baker was
on the - offensive, was '"EdJle'.'.'Plank,
the star left hand pitcher of the house
>f Mack, on the'defensive, •> The vet
eran southpaw never pitched a better
rani* 1 in his long; career. Only one of
:he Giants reached r second base, and
hat was Herzog,- who made that«bag.
■n a long hit to:, center, field, which
Jldring either misjudged or-lost in. th«
sun.V- Plank was never in trouble,. and
n the last six Innings Sew York went
jut in -order.
Marquard Pitches Wei)
Marqiiard, on whom .Manager. Me
3raw had pinned his , faith •■, to . make it
two? straight victories": for New,;, York,
pitched - a game, that 'i was > almost the
equal of that of Plank. allowed
the heavy hitting Philadelphia team
sut ■ four hits, . two .in the first : inning,
in which the Quakers got their first
run with the help; of a,: wild pitch, and
two in the .sixth,*! Collins*, double and
Baker's^ hit out of i the grounds. In
the eighth inning Manager McGraw
changed pitchers, sending in Crandall,
a. righthander.' \ ;.;.-;■
-The, New York left hander.'only once
during the game showed any unsteadi
ness and that: was -in the * first • inning.'
He ■ appeared -to be » nervous, and for a
time had trouble reading Meyers'" sig
nals. ; It looked as though he would
"blow up," i and ; Manager - McGraw no
doubt thought so, too, for he imme
diately sent- Crandall; down * the sido
i.nes to warm up. * * : " .■■■"•',: r.;;;-.
But Marquard, under the steady
coaching .of,. his Indian catcher, soon
settled downian.l he had no more trou
bel until Baker"broke up ;-the*fgame
in the sixth inning. Marquard, how
ever, j was hit harder • than , the ? score
indicates.: :'■'-. . , „•
Plank phad eight strike outs, Devore
falling I&i victim «• to * the v crossfire:■ de
livery of; the Philadejlphian four times,
while Marquard struck out; twice •- and
Snodgrass and Murray each once. Six
of the Athletics went out by the strike
out ' route.; * They " were: • Lord '.■■.t wo,"
Baker, Murphy and 5 Plank two. Mar
quard •' got J four of these , and * Crandall
two. Lord and Plank in the closing
inning.
No Bases on Balis
Neither; Plank • nor Marquard gave a
base on bails. The only misplay,charged
against them was Marquard's : wild
heave in the first inning? and a man
hit by a pitched ball by ; Plank. : The
Athletics- went out in order in five
innings. r< : - . ..'„* 7;'*"., -,' ** " r < -■?
,: New • York's only run was ; put -: across
the plate by the lajst- half rof ,the» bat
ting order. :It came in the second in
ning. Herzog drove a fly to center,
which Oldring failed Uol- get, and the
New : Yorker pulled up at second. He
went Jtol third bn Fletcher's J infield; out
and raced across the home I plate when 1
Meyers shot a single to left. Philadel
phia's" run r came in the | opening inning.
Yord. the* first; man up. singled to right
and reached i, second on Murray's fum
ble. '■'■: He "was -sacrificed hi to .•** third- by
01drlng;and came home on Marquard's
wild pitch. ' „ , - -.- '
?;Ther?flelfiing» honors today were the
reverse of those Saturday. The partic
ular S feature i was Lord's s quick ? fielding
of Snodgrass* h. long hit and his rifle
shot throw to second, .which caught
the; fleet footed centerfleldpr^ by a
coupled of yards trying to stretch the
long single into a double.
In the ninth inning Collins took a
nasty bounder from the side, and tossed
nut Murray, ending ihe game:
Philadelphia went through the game
without a miscue,lwhilelthe Giants had
three S errors «|charged against them.
The great pitching of. both Marquard
and Plank gave the fielders few chances
for sensational work.
The crowd that »aw the first of the
world's championship games hero was
600 short of the attendance at the s first
game for the world's title, played here
with Chicago last year.
Coombs in Reserve „ •' ' '
Connie Mack was all . smiles when he
appeared in his office in the tower of
Bhibe park * after the game. He had
played another card, but not the one
McGraw - had expected, and still haa
Coombs, the "iron man," to take up
the gage of battle on | the polo grounds
tomorrow. Th*>. crowd ■ fully>* expected
the tall manager to trot out Coombs,
who won three world's series games
last year. Plank was not used In the"
series with Chicago in 1910, and there
was some misgivings in the crowd as
to! the outcome of the game. But
when it was seen how well the south
paw was working they cheered him on.
The game began with New York at
the bat. '!,-:^*ffei
The first ball pitched by Plank was a
strike and the crowd cheered. Th&
next also was a strike and the third a
ball. fourth pitch sent the little
left fielder Devore back to the bench.
Captain Doyle sent a fly to Lord, which
the latter almost lost, slipping on the
soft ground as he started after the ball.

POISON OAK CURED
Many people suffer untold misery from
poison oak and poison ivy, but the very
first application of Blit* Dermoline
gives soothing- relief, and a few applica
tions accomplishes a speedy cure.
Henry Warmecke, 2971 2lst St., San
Francißco, writes: "I have been a great
aufferer from poison oak for years.-As
soon as I came in contact with the same
wherever it grew I was sure of having
a heavy dose. Fortunately, learning of
your remedy, I immediately applied it,
with magical results,"from one to two
applications perfecting a cure. I can
highly recommend the same to all."
If you suffer from poison oak or any
skin affection write to the Blitz Remedy
Co., 16 Geary et., San Francisco, and
they will gladly mail you a free sample.
Blitz Dermollne will cure eczema* pim
ples, rash, Mv«s and, in* fact, al! skin
affections, and the very ffrst application
will convince any sufferer of Its merit.
4 There is no need for any one to suffer
when relief can be obtained so quickly.
Go to the nearest druggist, buy a 50 cent
jar and you will wonder why you never ,
tried It before. Sold by all druggists, <
FANS SHY WITH

Result of Today's Game £x
pected to Change Odds One
Way or Another
' With a game to the credit of each
team, betting on the world's series re
mains-at evens in this city. Commis
sioner Tom Corbett repon* • ■;'
Philadelphia money on hand, but little
!coin that is willing to take Giant?.
The fans held the odds ;at evens Sat-'
urday and -Sunday. despite > the Ath
letics' defeat, and were offering 10 to 18
that the Mack men would win yester
day's contest. • •
.1 Despite the bettors' leaning : toward
the Quaker City champions, Corbett
expects the ; odds to tilt in favor of the
team winning today's game, If , the
Athletics iare gvictorious;j a sharp turn
may bo expected. If. the Giants; con
quer, . they will be short favorites at
: best. . ..„•.-.. " „. .
- So far there : has been - lots 4of wager

hoping that the Giants' backers will let
loose their coin'today; as Connie Mack's
followers have loaded him with com
missions. ■ .
