THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRA3I, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1909.
PAGE TWO ...FLOOR SHOW CASES, ALL GLASS OR WOOD RIM Clark Ohow Case Co., Columbus, O. BABE"AOAMS" TALKS Says He Bested Tigers by Ju ' dicious Use of Slow Drop Ball. HE GIVES GIBSON CREDIT Pittsburg. Oct. 19. Charles (Babe) Adams in a statement issued yester day explains how he defeated Detroit ; three times in the world's series. "My success in pitching can be at tributed to the slow dop ball. I dis cdvered in the first game that Detroit could not hit this kind of ball to any extent. When they would connect it would be a short hit to the infield and Pittsburg has an infield whiah can take care of such hits. "The slow drop I alternated, first out, then in. It went to the outside of the plate beyond the reach of the bat ter, but. If the batsman was within hitting distance the ball was low and its slowness caused a false estimate of the strength required from the bat ter. In such a Quick feat as batting a false estimate is a dangerous thing for the batting side. The ball which went inside the plate and dropped at the same time was the most effective I used. Detroit could do nothing with that at all. "But I did not overwork the drop ball. To do so would have been to Jack control. Gibson sized up the bat ters and we knew when it was safe to put them straight over the plate. De troit has a good batting aggregation, and it was necessary to take every precaution with them. The Tigers' rallies in several games demonstrated this. To lose control during one of these rallies would have meant the loss of the game. The most trying times while I was pitching was when Detroit showed one of those famous spurts of strength at bat I worked harder than ever and was fortunate enough to hold control. The balls that went straight over the plate were generally hit by Detroit. Occasionally one was walloped to good effect, but in the main we knew when there was to be a hit and the Infield and outfield acted accordingly."

PORTOLA FESTIVAL OF SAIITRAIICISCO In Commemoration of Discov ery of the Bay of the Golden Gate City. EVENT MARKS A NEW ERA IN THE WONDERFUL PROGRESS THE CITY HAS MADE SINCE THE AWFUL EARTHQUAKE OF THE YEAR '1906. (American News Service) San Francisco, Oct. 19. All the en chantment of the illuminations, the wind-blown flags, the carnival crowds and the rattle of reality about the streets of San Francisco last night were forecasts of the demonstrative welcome that awaited Don Caspar de Portola when he vailed through the Golden Gate today. More than 500.000 persons took part In this welcome and the festival has already established a new precedent for public celebrations around the Golden Gate. Don Caspard Portola entered the har bor at 9:30 o'clock this morning on the revenue cutter Golden Gate the same that brought President Taft to San Francisco but little more than a week ago. In splendor, the arrival of the Intrepid explorer far exceeded the entry of the chief executive. As the Golden Gate entered the harbor there was a booming of cannon from the international fleet in man-of-wars' row. Each of the ships of the Ameri can and foreign fleets fired a salute of 17 guns as the cutter passed Don Cas par before them in review. At 10:30 Don Caspar was landed on San Francisco soil and with the drag oons under Col. Henry Hitter as guard of honor, the parade through the streets of the city was begun. There were 10,000 marchers In line and it took more than three hours to pass a given point. At noon Don Caspar arrived at Un ion Square, where he was met by May or Taylor and presented with the keys to the city. Following this the presi dent's toast to San Francisco was pro posed and drunk. The rain of yesterday did little or no damage. Today the skies are still overcast, but the carnival spirit has not been lessened. The city has set aside five days for frolic and the pro gram will be carried out regardless of the weather. The Portola festival is to San Fran cisco today what the Hudson-Fulton celebration was to New York. The celebration is international in charac ter. It commemorates the discovery of the bay of San Francisco by Don Caspar de Portola, In the service cf King Charles III of Spain in 17C9. and also the rebuilding of the city which was laid in ruins by an earthquake.
