Boston's Eleventh Hour Rally
Fails to Stave Off Defeat
by Giants
"Lanky Rube" Marquard Hailed
as Gotham's Hero After
Ninth Inning Victory
Giants 2—Sox 1
"Rube" Marquard won his
own game — on Boston s lot.
The third contest of the series
was uninteresting, in comparison
with the first two, up to the ninth
With the score, 2 to 0, against
them at the opening of the last
inning, the Red Sox started a
It was some rally. The lum
inous spot in it Was one Duffy
Lewis, who hails from Alameda
— Encinal citys Chamber of
Commerce please note.
The rally failed. The Sox
made one run — by said Daffy
Lewis. Two more were due —
Hendrickson actually crossed the
plate and Wagner was tearing in
— but —
"Josh" Devorc — little Josh —
leaped into the circumambient
and hauled down Cadys smash
to right field.
That did the business.
The teams now are even.
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
One question only was asked
among the New Tork fans as they
merged inte the multitude mov
ing upon Fenway field today for the
third of the world's series—"Can Rube
do it?"
John McGraw's $11,000 prize pack
age, held in reserve to "sock" the Red
Box, held the hopes and fears of the
Gothamites in the palm of his magic
mitt. It was he who stopped the buoy
ant Bostonians and turned the drawn
came of the day before into an equal
izing victory, justifying the still calm
confidence of the Giant nine.
He could and did—with the assist
ance of Josh Devore and others —but
mainly Josh. The answer came in the
th, when the fate of the game hung
-pended by the slenderest of threads
—runners on second and third, a hit
needed by the stalwarts to cinch the
game, with Hendrickson, running for
Stahl, straining from the third bag—
only a hit, but a safe hit.
Couldn't Rattle Rube
When Cady came to the plate, facing
UsrquarA, the roaring rooters for the
f.-ox split the air with nerve racking
calls. "'Tessie** came from two bands
and the crowd took it up.
"Oh. you Tessie!"
It was enough to rattle the <oo!est
of the cool, but the Rube stood it all—
a smile on his lip, the light of assur
ance in his eyes.
Fast as the furies shot out the Mar
aid hand; low came the ball like a
oak of light. To the dismay of the
New Yorkers Cady played it fair at the
right field fence —into the sky clipping
palm of Josh Devore.
Tf the Rube had wavered for the
briefest of seconds, if his hand had
lost its cunning, his blizzard ball Its
eed, Cady would have scored Hen
drickson and Wagner for a certainty.
As It was, only the most spectacular
catching on the part of Devore saved
the day. A twin triumph.
Odds on Sox Drop
That the Boston crowd settled down
in stands and bleachers to observe to
day's doings with anything but assur
ance of an easy conquest was shown by
the betting odds of the morning—a
drop from 2 to 1 to 7 to 5 in favor of
the Red Sox, the latter then a game in

Reno Court for Second Time
Refuses Decree to Mrs.
Henry Huff
[Special Dispatch to The Cell]
RENO, Oct 10.—Mrs. Edna G. Hutt,
who firmly believed she would be given
an absolute decree of divorce this after
noon from her artist .husband, Henry
Hutt of New York, was disappointed.
Mrs. Hutt had reckoned without her
husband, so when her lawyer wanted
to put in an amended complaint Hutt's
lawyer made strenuous objection. The
original charge was wilful desertion.
What the amended charge might be
the attorney for Hutt said he had no
idea, and so he demanded proper serv
ice of the document and a sufficient
time for him to consult with his client
in New York. Hutt's lawyer said he
wasn't retained to defend the artist
except upon the desertion charge, and
as the wife had not succeeded in se
curing a decree upon that allegation he
would not agree to accept service of
an amended complaint in the court
room and continue the trial.
Mrs. Hutt looked her anger. This
was her second unsuccessful attempt
to secure freedom. The case may come
up in about a week.

Ohio's Governor Plants Flag
On Exposition Building Site
Mother State of West the Sixteenth to Accept
Location for Exhibit
Ohio stepped proudly into Its place yesterday in the circle of states that
form the rapidly growing exposition family. With a little of pomp and cere
mony and a great deal of cheering, hurrahing and hand shaking the formal
selection of the Ohio building site was made and there was planted in the soil
of the Presidio a sign announcing that possession of the given tract was
vested in the Buckeye commonwealth.
This newest sign is the sixteenth
that has been raised in the section of
the exposition grounds reserved tor
the states of the union since Califor
nia's nearest neighbors, Oregon and
Nevada, entered their claims a few
months ago, but there was a new sig
nificance yesterday to the now some

Governor Harmon Raises Flag
As Governor Judson Harmon raised
the standard of Ohio to the top of one
of the flagpoles on a grandstand spe
cially erected for the ceremonies,
President Charles C. Moore of the ex
position pulled the national colors to
the peak of a twin staff, and the
mounted band of the First United
States cavalry broke Into the strains
of "The Star Spangled Banner."
Then there came cheer after cheer,
and they were cheers that proved to
the Ohio commissioners that, after all,
they were not very far from home,
first, of course, were cheers for Gov
ernor Harmon and his associates and
the exposition itself, but then came
others for the cities of Columbus,
Cleveland, Cincinnati and Ashland,
and over the heads of the crowd
massed before the grandstand began
a frenzied waving of Ohio flags.
Many Natives of t>hio
It was all because San Francisco
has a big proportion -of former
Ohioans among its citizens, and these
turned out by the. hundred to make
the occasion a gala one. Governor
Harmon had said in his speech that
a native of Ohio always remained
proud of his old state, and there were
■ ust enough of those transplanted na
tives within hearing to make good his i
assertion with a rousing, loyal ova-j

War Department Grants Permis
sion to Oakland, Antioch
and Eastern Company
Permission" was granted the Oakland,
Antioch and Eastern railway to con
struct a railway bridge over Suisun bay
at Chipps island yesterday by the war
department at Washington. The hearing
In regard to the bridge was held here
several months ago before Major Sher
wood A. Cheney of the engineering
corps of the army, and it was In ac
cordance with his recommendation that
the permit was granted the new electric
Two Miles Long
Although "Walter Arnstein, president
of the road, was notified from Wash
ington that the application had been
passed, his Information was meager,
relative to the restrictions and modifi
cations of construction that the war
department will exact. The bridge, in
cluding the trestle approaches, will be
two miles long and will be 72 feet abov e
high water marie In the center of the
bridge there will be a section ISO feet
long that will lift up, on the plan of an
elevator, to allow for the tallest sail
ing vessels to pass under the bridge.
The 72 feet In the clear will allow all
steamers and smaller sailing vessels to
pass under the bridge without raising i
the center. This section of the bridge
will b« elevated by electricity. The
spans will be made of structural steel
and rest on concrete piers encased In
steel jackets.
Tug in Attendance
The* railroad company will be com
pelled to keep a tugboat in constant
attendance to aid all vessels passing
under tbe bridge. This exaction was
made oa account of the currents during
the tide flow and winter freshets. The
piers, which will be 400 feet apart, are
to be surrounded by automatic fog
buoy a s The bridge will also carry a
highway and will reduce the distance
by wagon road from Oakland to Sac
ramento to 84 miles.
The bridge will cost |1,600,000 and
will be finished In a little less than two
years, in the meantime the Oakland,
Antioch and Eastern propose to oper
ate a ferry service between tha Contra
Costa county side of the bay and
Chipps island. ,

bridges in the United States, one span-
the Missouri river near Kansas

made by both the Southern Pacific
company and the Santa Fe company to

LONDON. Oct. 10.—Montenegro
claims the first victory in the
Balkan war by the capture of
the strong Turkish position
on Detchitch mountain, whose com
mander surrendered today, with the
bulk of his forces. Montenegrins also
crossed the frontier near Berana and,
according to the Turkish account,
have been repulsed.
The situation meanwhile is as puz
zling as before. No declaration of
war has been issued by the other
allied Balkan states, and there is no
news of their ministers having left
Constantinople. It can not be defi
nitely said whether Montenegro has
acted independently, with the motive
of forcing a conflict so as to render
the efforts of the powers to preserve
peace nugatory, or in accordance
with a strategic plan arranged by the
Balkan coalition.
Note Presented by Powers
The powers today presented a col
lective note inviting Turkey to discuss
a scheme for reforms in Macedonia.
It appears, however, that though
diplomacy is trying to arrange the
matter peacabJ}', guns will decide it
for them.
Fresh Bulgarian attacks on Turkish
frontier towns are reported tonight.
