(Philadelphia, Oct. 10.—In a pitchers 'battle with a dramatic climax usually reserved for baseball fiction, the Bos ton Nationals defeated the Philadel phia Americans here today in the se< - ond came of the world’s series by a score of 1 to 0. As a result of the victory (he Braves left for Boston to night woth a two game lead over the Athletics and the added advantage of playing the next two contests on tneir home grounds when the seties is re sinned on Monday. Alth-rmi. i the American league champions were forced to how for the second time In tWo days to the supe rior play of their National league rivals, they offered a far more de termined opposition than was the case Friday. For eight innings the two clubs batted behind the pitching of James and Plank, without the sem ■fiance or an advantage. men camo the break in the game and once morn the Mac km on saw (mother world s series conte.st slip away. ■lames had been pitching linlritabla H all and Plank, while not as effective, had. with the aid of '.lis remarkable inlie'd. held Boston scoreless. The lAthletics' veteran iwirier was work ing as smoothly as at the beginning of the game when Maranville faced iliim at the aliening of the ninth in ning. The phantom-Uke shortstop went out, Barry to Molnnis, and Deal, substitute third baseman, in place of "’Red" Smith, stepped to the plate. The Athletic followers already were figuring on what chance their players had to win out in the ninth. Deal and James appeared to he easy out p’The (Boston third sacker, who had hit ,iiito three double plays on Friday aril 'forced three teammates in today’s same was not considered a batting lac tor. Deal Upset Athletics. | it was Dea4, however, who upset IPIank’s expectations, and the Ath letics’ chances. He drove a long double over Strunk’s head and a m> nient later stole third when Scliang threw low to Barry to catch Deal ot'l 1,10 base. Barry turned to throw it third, hut held the bi ll and Deal wa sate. Whether Baker was not chose enough t<> (lie bag or Barn believed it was too late to head oft til; runn.-r >s not known.

Although tlie latter made a .'ratid try for the ball it just touched liis fingers and sprawled in the tm:. Beal dashing across the plate wifi the solitary run of tile game. Tlie Athletics replied with a great tally in their half of the ninth and James, who had carried the game on is shoulders alone up to this point, liegan to totter. The thousands of rooters for the home club were stamping, cheerinu and clapping in unison and Barry waited patiently until James passed him to first, l-’ehang fanned hut Wash batting lor I’.'ank, also was walked by tlie rat tled pitcher. With two on and one out, the fans felt sure tlie Mackmen were to !r v«k through and win, and the uproar was deafening. Hddi& (Murphy, ‘ lead off uian" for tlie Athletics, stepped to the plate and catching one of James' curves full on the end of his hot, drove a leaping grounder to the left of second base. Maranville sprang with the crack of the hat an 1 .vi.h a catlike bound clutched the ba'l and with another leap touched he bag, forciuj Walsh. With almost the same motion lie snapped the hall t > Schmidt at first for a double on Mur phy, and a second later went down in a cloud of dust as Walsh cras.ie.l into him at top speed. When lie scram bled to iiis feet the other players were running for the club house'and the game was saved. Tills play came at a most opportune and dramatic moment, for James had begun to falter after pitching a game which tor skiW and control never has been surpassed in a world’s series match, not even in the twirling duels In which Christy Mathewson, Bendc and Plank have figured. Tlie Boston ibovman had perfect control, cl.at.ga of pace aaid a spitter that broke like lightning. IHe fanned eight of tlie heavy hitt'ng Athletics, including Murphy, Oidring, Mclnnis and SB-unk.

Of the two hits ehu-geJ against James, the one ('ollins made would have been an easy out ior Evers hut for the fact that il b emded so high that the hatter heat the throw by u step. Plank Pitched Great Game. IPlank, while he pitched a splendid game for his club, was forced to >ii vide more honors with his tea ualjs than James. The veterans ’pitching was not quite tuo enigma to the Boston hat ters that. James’ was to the White | Elephants. Plank several times wa saved by the sensational fielding of Baker, Barry, Collins and Mcinnlo. lie fanned six Braves, Pitcher James striking out four times in succession, giving four liases on halls and liit one •hatter. Of the 27 putouts made by the Maekinen, the batten and infield accounted for 21. Plank had to watch the liases closer than James, for eleven Bostonians wore stranded, to the Athletics’ one. 'Considering the closeness and strain of the game, both teams played n markable baseball. There were errors of commission and omission, hut all were excusable under the con ditions. iMaranviMe and Deal got mixed on i.Yldnnis' first, foul in the eighth inning and the shortstop was hardly prepared for the chance. The \thletics error was charged to ■Inn.is, who failed to hold a wide throw over trying to get a clutch on the hall. Scliang appeared to have diffi culty in holding Flank's delivery at times, hut escaped without a black mark fro mthe scorers. One Doubtful Play. Sclian'g also figured in the only play over which there was any after math. Following his double in the sixth inning, he attempted to steal third when Gowdy dropped one of .lames' shoots. The Graves' catcher recovered the hall in time to nip Scliang at iieal’s station, l.ut the Athletics declared after the game he was safe. They claimed that the game broke there for Boston, for with Scliang safe at third and ibut one out, the chances for a scoring drive b> the head of the batting list were ex cellent. Although the nomo fans were more enthusiastic than on Friday, .there was little effort to find fault with the umpires' decisions. They cheered lustily and endeavored to tattle James and encourage the Macktnon in tiie closin'i innings, hut fiunkly ac CONTINUED ON PAGE THREE. MW IS CAPTURED GERMANS TAKE POSSESSION OF CITY AND FORTS AT EARLY HOUR SATURDAY. BELGIAN ARMY ESCAPED Greater Part of the Defending Force Leaves Beleaguered City to Effect a Junction With the French and English. H-ondon, Oct. 10.-9:35 p. m.—Ant werp and the forts surrounding the city are im complete possession of the Germans, hut the greater jiart of the Belgian army has escaped. It took the Germans just eleven days to capture the strongest fortress in the world. The fall of Antwerp is evidence that even the most powerful forts are no match for the colossal Howitzers which the invaders have successfully employed against every fortilied place that stood in their way. These huge iguns opened gays through which the besiegers find an entrance for their field artillery and infantry. The Germans after shelling the city itself for many hours, making it un teatable, entered the town through the suburb of Berchem, to the east. They had made a breach in the outer line of forts, some of which were d< -; strayed by their ihig guns and others j blown up by the defenders. The Ger mans followed similar plans in deal nig wun me inner in :t ol torts and at the same time threw shells into the city which set afire many places. The inner forts, like those further out, soon succumbed to the enotrflous shells and before morning several of these forts had fallen, opening the way for the Germans into the city. By midday they were in occupation of the town and at 2:30 p. m. the war banner on the cathedral was replaced by a white flag. When the Germans arrived yester day they found that the Belgian fieid army and at leas’, pai l of the garrison had anticipated them and, 'like the king and royal family, had escaped. The death roll resulting from the attack on and defense ef Antwerp has not been compiled and probably the full details never will be known, but all accounts describe it as being ter ribly heavy. Tile Germans, although their big guns cleared a path for them, had to sacrifice many lives in crossing the rivers and canals and in driving out the defenders. The stubbornness of the Belgians and of those who went to their as sistance cost them dearly; also both sides will hae lonvg casualty lists. Crowds of refugees arrived in I on don tonight. Most of them left int werp Thursday night, and their ac counts of the attacks are confined. Tlie Belgians themselves, besides destroying forts, .blew up steamers a' the docks and set fire to the petrol stores and everything useful to the invaders. They also took away wha1 tlie transports could carry. Berchem, where tiie military and other hospitals, the orphanage and some public buildings are situated, is reported to be destroyed. Even if this is an exaggeration it must be sadly damaged, as it was burning at least two days. i ue Antwerp railway stain ns also made marks for the shells from the big German guns, hut according to some refugees here, the cathedral, which is on the other side of the city near tin Scheldt while struck was not "badly damaged. The inmates of the hospitals and oilier institutions were removed Thursday or earlier so that they were well out of the way before the Germans arrived. A question now arising is as to the effect upon the general campaign of the German occupation of Antwerp. The Belgian garrison or the greater part of it escaped and is reported to he engaged with the Germans. The strategic importance of Ant werp consisted in its menace to the German lines running through Bel gium. Now matters have been re versed and the allies will have to take their turn in keeping forces before the city to prevent the Germans from Antwerp attacking their flank or rear should they be aide to advance. The Germans propose, according to the ;Uerlin r»i>ort8, to use the city as a Base for operations against Kurland. England Not Menaced. So lonp us Great Britain commands the sea no great part of the tier man navy can use the port even should Germany overrule Holland's objection to the use of tin' Scheldt hy belli..’,or cut. ships. Germany, it is thought, may claim that being in possession of the city, she acquires Belgium's right to use the river on equal terms with the lihitoll, and will proceed to build destroyers and submarines there to menace the British fleet. If Holland should allow the e ves sels to pass through the Scln Idt Kn - land, it is declared, would eeitainly proclaim it a breach of neutrality. T.i any case. Holland's position becomes (more and more uncomfortable. French Make Progress. In France, according to the French communication, the allies have main tained their positions in spite of vio lent attacks at several points. The cavalry still is engaged along the 'Belgian frontier and across it, each side trying to work around the other wing. This movement has compelled the Germans to withdraw some troops from other parts of the line and the allies are seizing the opportunity to make headway. The communication reports that to the north of Oise the French troops have attained a real advantage in several parts of their zone of action, while in the St. Mihiel region, where they are trying to drive the Germans back across the Meuse, appreciable progress lias been made. Prussia is Invaded. The German and Russian forces on the East Prussian frontier are fight ing stubbornly. The Russians appar tly continue to make progress sslow sentiy continue to make progress slowly and the Germans, evidently fearing another invasion of East Prussia, according to news fsrom Ber lin received through Rome, are send ing reinforcements to their army both by railway and through the Bal tic ports. An unofficial dispatch from Petrn grad says the Russians have occu pied Marggrabowa. which is eight mites over tlie frorrtter tn Fast Prus sia almost due west of Suiwalki. This would indicate that the Russians have overcome in this region the German resistance, which has ilieen of longer duration than at any other section after the Germans were driven back from their attempt to cross the Nie men. Lyck, which also has been oc cupied #>y the Russians, if lu miles south of Marggrabowa. In western Poland a great battle is expected. The fortress of Przemysl in Galicia still holds out hut it is re|>orted that additional forts shave fallen and that the town is being Itomharded. Fight ing also' continues in Hungary, where another Russian force is reported to have arrived south of l.Maramos-Sai get. The death of King Charles of Ron mania is likely to have marked effect on the country's action with regard to the war. The late king, who belonged to the 1 lohenzollern family, was op posed to Roumania joining will) the allies, although a majority of the peo ple favored the government’s taking advantage of the opportunity to an nex Transylvania, which is populated largely by Roumanians. It is doubted whether the new king will have suf ficient influence to keep his country out or the war even should lie desire to do so. -U KING CHARLES OF ROUMANIA 1$ DEAD HIS DEATH MAY HASTEN THAT COUNTRY’S PARTICIPATION IN EUROPEAN WAR. Amsterdam, Oct. 1(1, via l.cndon. C>:3<) p. m.—A telegram received here from Vienna says that King Charles of Roumania died this morning. Kin;; Charles was rc|x>rted a few days a-'o as ill, and at the time it was said in several European capitals that he was shamming, as he desired to got away from cabinet meetings where his ministers favored the cause of the allies in the great war. The king was a Teuton, a Hohenzolle; n, and had given his word to Emperor William that he would aid Germany. The king, however, was disappointed in this, as his people would not couu tenance it. Died at Country Home. Ixmdon, Oct. 10.—According to a Iteuter dispatch from Huoliarest. the death of King Charles of Kou:n*nla occurred at i>:30 a. m. tooay at his county seat at Sinaia, in Walachia. THREE BRITISH NAVAL BRIGADES FOUGHT WITH BESIEGED GAR RISON AT ANTWERP. ONE ESCAPED TO HOLLAND Reported That Two English Brigades and the Belgian Army Accomplished’ Its Retreat From Antwerp Without Difficulty. W ith the fall of Antwerp it has be come known through official an nouncement by the British admiralty that a British force consisting of three naval brigades of about 8,000 men with heavy guns, foui-'ht beside the Belgians in defense of their great fortress. (With the Belgian army when it marched out of Antwerp went the British, but during the retreat one of the British brigades was forced to find refuge in Holland, where it in terned. The other two brigades reached Ostend. The British losses at Antwerp were reported to be 300. The British admiralty statement adds that the retreat of the Belgian army was accomplished successfully. British Troops Fight Well. The secretary of the admiralty makes fTie followin' announcement1, “Jn response to an appeal by tho Belgian governmmt, a maiine brl Kade and two naval brigades, together wit.i some heavy naval guns manned by a detachment of the royal navy, the whole under command of Genera' Paris, It. IM. A., were sent by his majesty's government to participate in tlie defense of Antwerp during the last week of the attack. "Up until the night of Monday last, October 9, the Belgian army and the marine brigade maintained the inner line of the defenses. During Wednes day and Thursday while the city en dured a rutluess bombardment, the behavior of the royal marines and the naval brigades in the trendies and in the field was praiseworthy in a high degree and remarkable in units so newly formed Owing to the protec tion of the entrenchments, the losses in spite of the severity of the fire are probably less than hOO out of a total force of 8,000 men. The defense could have ibeen maintained for a longer period lint not long enough to allow of adequate forces Is-iiig sent for their relief without prejudice to tlie main strategic situation. “In these circumstances tlie Belgian and ''British military authorities in Antwerp decided to evacuate tlie city. The Britisli offered to cover tlie re treat, hut General de Guise desired that they should leave before the last division of the 'Belgian army. "After a long night march to Saint Gilles three naval brigades entrained. Two out of the three have arrived safely at Ostend Imt owing to circum stances which are not yet fully known .the greater part of the first naval brigade was cut off by a tier man night attack north of I okcreii and 2,000 officers and men entered Dutch territory in the neighborhood of iliilsi and laid down their arms in accordance with the laws of neu trality "The retreat or the Belgian army has been succesefully accomplished. All armored trains and heavy*guns were brought away. "The retreat from Ghent onwards of the naval division and of the Bel gian army was covered ‘by strong ibitiivh reinforcements." The admiralty also reports in the same statement that the naval avia tion party having completed its at tack on Dusseldorf and Cologne, al ready reported, has returned safely to its base protected by armored cars. The progress of the battle along the line from the Belgian frontier to Lor raine is problematical, the official communications issued by the French war office giving meager details of the situation. The latest statement says that gen eral headquarters only mentions en counters between cavalry forces in the neighborhood of St. Mlhiel and a violent action to the south, east and north of Arras and vigorous offensive movements by tire Germans ou the heights of the Meuse. The death of King Charles of Kou mania luin.'is -prominently to the front tlie question of the attitude which Itoiiniania now is likely to assume, with regard to participation in the war. King 'Charles favored the Ger mans and Austrians but his mini tors and the Roumanian people have in clined toward the allies. Meanwhile lioumania has remained neutral. <>n the Hast Prussian frontier the battle (between the German and Rus sian forces continues wiht urna-bated obstinacy. According to Russian of ficial reports, the German troops are retiring from the region of iRyck and are blowing up the bridges. The Russian troops are undertaking strong offensive movements in Po land and are massing along the lino front I.ii 1>1 iii to Warsaw and also from Luiblin to Lemberg. Vienna reports of an official char actor say that the advance of the Au strians has forced the Russians to slack tin their efforts against Przemysl add that the Russians have com menced to withdraw their forces. It is added that the Russians are retreating from Maramaros-Sziget. — o CZAR ANNOUNCES THAT NEW CONCENTRATION OF TROOPS MUST BE KEPT SECRET. MASSING ON THEIR CENTER Dispatch of Portion of Rennen kampff's Troops and Cossacks Por tends the Great Movement of Rus sian Troops on Real German Inva sion. I London, Oct. 10. 9:25 a. rn.—<A Renter dispatch from Petrograd gives the following official statement: r.ie last of the German soldiers have evacuated Suwallkl (a govern ment of Russian Poland j carrying off the valuables they had taken as loot. They did not have time to force the payment of a war levy of $50,000. "It is estimated that the Germans lost 00.000 men in the battle of Au gust owo. Petrograd, Oct. 10; via London, Oct. 10 10 pm. An official Russian com munication issued recently states that in view of ttie importance of the com ing battle and the changed disposi tion of the Russian forces, secrecy is necessary in regard to military opera tions. Therefore the only possible re mark is that the drawing in of the Russian forces from the north and south is to meet the attempted Aus Iro-German advance into Poland. The victorious army of General ftennonkempff having driven hack !he Gi rmaiis from the region of \u iustowo as far as Lyck and Proshken, now in possession of the Russians, has accomplished its purpose and is low free to send part of the troops southward. At the same time the 'ossacks pouring into Hungary have changed their objective. 'l ie Russian troops are now acting •xcluwlveiy on the offensive in Po und. The attempted advance of the iermans in HRs country demands a liassing of the Muscovite forces along lie line from Lublin to Warsaw and hem berg, where the indications are hat the Russian offensive already is n progress.
