Youngsters Hit Hard and Coombs
Twirls Best Game of the Three He
Helped to Win-Victorious Players
> Entitled to $2,062 Each.
Chicago.-The baseball champion-
ship of the w.orld belongs to the Phila
I delphia club of the American league.
They clinched the big pennant fast on
j Sunday seven runs to two for the Chi
cago Nationals , and there was none in
the big overflow crowd to say that
, 1 they had not won it fairly and square-
I ly. Five games were played and the
eastern youngsters took four of them
by outbatting , outfielding and outrush-
ing the veteran Chicagoans. They
"got the jump" at the start , and al
though Chicago punctuated their pro-
gress with a defeat Saturday , it really
did not change the situation a bit.
While the series was not the most
profitable ever played , it helps to sim
\ plify the high cost of living problem
confronting even such heroes as the
Philadelphians , to say nothing of the
Chicagoans , with winter coming. The
players' share of the money amounts
I to $79,091.93. Of this 60 per sent , or
$47,943.15 goes to the winners and
$31,628.71 to the losers. As there are
twenty-three players on each team
eligible to participate , each of the
. t . Philadelphians entitled in round
, numbers to $2,062 , and each Chicagoar
' to $1,375.

I Deal to Fear From Its Victory
' Flushed Troops.
Lisbon. - The republican government
1 Is somewhat uneasy over the attitude
of the regiments which made the rev-
' olution possible. Although not openly
insubordinate , the soldiers , flushed
with victory , are showing extreme in
: , dependence and are championing the
" maintenance of strong power in the
Lands of the military.
i The government's real reason for
i "j- I according leave of absence four
1 months to the soldiers who took

is the desire to break up the regiments
temporarily and remove the danger of
} military rebellion. The majority of

Captain of National Team Hicks on
Murphy's Home Run anj Vs Dis
ciplined by Umpire-His Pitchers
Are Hard Hit.
- .
Chic : go.-More than 26,000 people
saw the Philadelphia American league
ball team administer the third con
secutive defe'at to the Chicago Na-
tional league club in the world's
championship series on Thursday. J > .
In every department t ; the game
the Quaker City team h.d : . it on the
veteran pannant winners. They played
rings around them. They knocked
their pitchers out of the box and per-
formed stunts in the field that robbed
the Chicago players of what might
have been hits.
Reulbach started out to pitch for
the Chicagoans. He lasted two in
nings and then Mclntire took his
place. The latter was driven out of
the box in the third inning after the
Athletics had slammed the ball all
around the lot. Pfiester took his
The third inning was really the .
most remarkable of the game. Be
sides seeing the retirement of Mc
Intire , this same round noted the
blacklisting of Manager Chance. He
was ordered off the field by Umpire
Connolly because he disputed too ar
dently a decision which gave Murphy
a home run for a terrific hit into the
crowd in right field.
Jack Coombs , who worked on Tues
day at Philadelphia for the Athletics
came back and twirled a much bet-
ter game. He had better control , a
quicker break to his curves , which
he used considerably throughout.
The American league champions
continued their excellent work on the
field and at the plate. There were
no particular stars in the conflict on :
the side of the Athletiqs , but all of
the men took a hand in administering
the third consecutive defeat to the
Cubs. The score :

FSSSadelphia. The
- Philadelphia
Athletics proved too strong for the
Chicago Nationals in the second base-
ball game of the world's series and
romped away with a 9 to 3 victory.
The American league champions ,
who now have won two straight con-
tests , looked superior to their oppo-
nents in both hitting and pitching.
They outhit the Chicagos , fourteen to
I nine , and Jack Coombs , who was
opposed by Mordecai Brown , had a
big shade over the latter twirler.
While he did not prove as effective
as Bender , Coombs was unhittable in
. ' fijhe pinches , when he did magnificent
! 5ork. Like Bender , he mixed his
jjirves well , using speed , curves and
3 slow one alternately.
Brown did not appear at his best ,
as his deceptive curve ball did not
break with the sharpness that it usual-
ly does. Brown also lacked the con-
trol and after getting two and three
balls on his opponents he was com-
pelled to stick the next over. As a
result the Athletics hit timely and
cinched the victory in the seventh
round , when six runs were secured off
him.Philadelphia. . - Through the master .
ly pitching of "Chief" Bender the
Philadelphia American baseball team
defeated the Chicago Nationals by a
score of 4 to 1 in the initial game of
the world's championship series. The
game was witnessed by 26,981 per
The game was a wonder in its I way ,
and Chief Bender , who pitched for
the Athletics , had the Chicagoans at
his mercy up to the ninth inning ,
when he * et dovrn a tit and the Cubs
got their single tally.

Passengers Numbering 547 Are Safe
But Ship Cannot Be Floated Until
Cargo Is Jettisoned - Nine Lives
Lost in Storm.
New York.-The destructiveness
and the devastation wrought by the
\Vest Indian hurricane along the Flor-
ida coast , south of St. Augustine , . is
being revealed as wire communication
is slowly restored.
Dispatches from Tampa , and Key
West received by roundabout routes
give a long list of vessels wrecked
and lives lost.
Most thrilling of all is the report
telling of the grounding of the French
transatlantic steamship Louisiane ,
with 547 passengers , on Sombrero
Reef , fifty miles east of Key West.
Fortunately , however , all hands are
reported safe. The vessel lies in eight
feet of water and cannot be" floated
until most of her cargo has been jet-
Three of the crew of the schooner
Harry I. Haywood of Boston were
drowned when that vessel went on
the reefs at Boca Ratone.
Six men were drowned when the
sloop Nabob was swept to sea and
swamped off Masquesos.
The captain , mate and one seaman
of the schooner William W. Con-
verse of Philadelphia were lost when
the schooner went to pieces on Tues-
day. Five survivors were brought to
St. Augustine.
The schooner Edward T. Stotes-
bury of New York is also reported
wrecked on a reef.
The Texas oil barge Dallas , with
nine men aboard , broke her towing
line in a ninety-mile gale off Jack-
sonville , Fla. , and has not been heard
of since.
The steamer Brazos of the Mallory
line left Galveston on October 12 with
sixteen : cabin and fifteen steerage pas-
sengers. Since a dispatch was re
ceived from her captain on Sunday
thac she had anchored in the Gulf of
Mexico nothing has been heard of her.
Validity of Law Making Initial Carrier
Liable fbr. Damage Is Before
High Court.
Washington.-Argument was begun
Wednesday in the United States Su
preme court as to the validity of the
so-called Carmack amendment to the
Hepburn rate law of 1904. The initial
carrier of interstate commerce is not
only made liable by this amendment
for damages which may occur in
transportation on its own road but
also on all its connecting lines.
The contest is probably the greatest
of all the legal controversies which
have arisen out of the passage of the
Hepburn rate law.
Attacking the constitutionality of
the law at this time are the Atlantic
Coast Line Railroad company and the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad com-
In addition to those claiming dam-
ages for shipments over these roads ,
Attorney General Wickersham of the
department of justice has come forth
to defend the constitutionality of the
law. From two primary points of
view the railroads attack the law.

Senator Cummins , Governor Canroll
and Others Pay Last Tribute to
Memory of Dead Statesman.
Fort Dodge , la. - The funeral of the
late Senator Jonathan P. Dolliver took
place here v/hile the rain fell in tor I
rents. Burial was in Oakdale ceme- .
The drizzling rain , driven by a raw ,
cold wind , compelled the family to
abandon the original plan of holding
the services on the lawn of the Dolli-
ver home. The funeral , therefore , was
held in the Fifty-sixth regiment arm-
ory , which accommodates 6000. :
Contrary elements could not keep
away the devoted friends of Senator
Dolliver , however , who crowded every
available space in the big building.
Standing outside the building , strain-
ing to catch a word of the eulogies be-
ing : pronounced upon the departed
statesman , were almost 3,000 people.
They crowded around the building
until finally Senator Clapp of Minneso-
ta left the services inside and went
outside , making a short speech to
On the stage of the armory were
seated the clergy , the United States
senators and congressmen , the com-
mittee from the two houses of the
Iowa general assembly , all state offi
cers and other speakers.
The space in front of the stage was
a perfect mass of flowers. Particular-
ly noticeable was the huge wreath
sent by the United States senate.
Preceding the speeches at the arm
ory the regulation Methodist Episcopal ]
burial services were held.
Following the ritualistic services of
the church , eulogies were delivered by
the following men : Rev. Charles M.
Stuart , Chicago ; Governor Carroll , on
behalf of the people of Iowa ; Senator
Cummins , as representative of the Uni-
ted States senate ; Bishop William Fra-
ser McDowell of .Chicago , "A Fallen
Leader. "
American Dentist Takes Witness
Stand In Own Behalf In Trial
for Wife Murder.
London.-The climax was reached
in the sensational Crippen murder
case Thursday when Dr. H. H. Crip-
pen took the witness stand to refute
the charge that he had murdered his
wife , that he might marry his pretty
typist , Ethel Clare Leneve.
. Crippen admitted that he lied con-
cerning his wife's disappearance.
"I said those things to 'cover up the
scandal , for both our sakes , " said the
witness. "It is true that many of the
things I said were false. She repeat-
edly threatened to leave me , telling
me that she could go to America to
join Bruce Miller. I last saw her on
January 31 of this year , and I be-
lieved that she fled to America. To
avoid scandal I concocted a story that
she had gone to America to attend
to certain private business for me in
California , and that while on her way
across the American continent she
had died and had been incinerated
there. "
Telling of his flight to North Amer
ica , Crippen said :
"Ethel and I were hunted andwe
wanted to escape. The quartermaster
of the Montrose volunteered to help
us. We were to be smuggled ashore
in a piece of baggage , but our plan
was frustrated. I wrote the suicide
note to throw the authorities off the
track and give us more time to get
away. "

Wellman and Companions Are PIckec
Up and Return to New York
on the Trent.
New York. - Walter Wellman , who
with his crew of five men sailed from
Atlantic City , N. J. , for Europe in the
immense dirigible balloon America
last Saturday , got back to this city
Wednesday on the Royal Mail Steam
Packet line steamer Trent.
Barring a few Injuries to his right
arm and one of the fingers of his
right hand , the man who directed this
daring attempt to cross the ocean in
a gas bag returns in good physical
shape although his nerves are some-
what shattered and he has reached
the conclusion that in the present de-
velopment of the dirigible the task
he undertook is a hopeless one.
The members of his crew came
back bubbling with enthusiasm over
their adventures and with open ex
pressions of willingness to try it again
as soon as anyone produces a bal
loon which has half a chance of ma-
king the journey.
New York.-The first attempt to
cross the Atlantic in a dirigible bal-
loon has proved a failure. The Amer-
ica , with Walter Wellman and his par-
ty of five on board , was picked up
Tuesday morning ; almost 375 miles
due east of Cape Hatteras , by the in
coming Bermuda liner Trent.
News of the rescue came In two
wireless messages from Captain Down
of the Trent one reporting to the
company agents here and another in
forming the New York Times of the
result of the expedition in which It
had taken a leading part.
Captain Down reported that at five
o'clocTuesday ! : morning he first
sighted the airship. Signals of dis-
tress and calls for help were given.
For three hours the Trent maneuvered
in the heavy sea to get alongside of
Wellman and his wrecked companions.
The entire party finally was taken
aboard , even to the cat , which was
taken along as a mascot. The Amer
ica was abandoned where the rescue
occurred , in latitude 35.43 , longitude
