PITTSBURG. r., Oct. 8.-The National
league champions won the first game of
the world's championship series, by the
Scorn of 4 . to 1, at Forties Field today.
Afur the early Innings iJetrult was out
classed In every department of the game.
In the first three Innings Detroit out
An Immense crowd of 29.26S puld admla
sions. a new record for attendance in a
world's series game, witnessed 'the exciting
gdme. Kvery scat in the immense amphi
theater was filled when 'mpire Johnstone
called "play ball." The majority -of the
spectators were Pittsburg supporters, but
a large delegation of Detroit enthusiasts
made a creditable showing, with plenty of
noise in the early Innings.
Clarke and I. each Star.
Manager Fred Clarke and Tommy Leach
were the Pittsburg stars. In .the fuurth
inning Clarke solved Pitcher Mullin's puz
zling delivery and made a smashing home
lun hit into the right field bleachers. This
tied tlio score and appeared to take all
the heart out of Detroit. Scoring was com
paratively tasy for Pittsburg after that.
Loach's sensational catch of a hard drive
from "Ty" Cobb's bat. with two iM-'tKHt
inon on bases In the seventh inning, saved
the game. Leach was playing ducp for
Cobb, but this drive went almost to tin
center-field stand and It was only aftri
a hard backward inn that Leach was able
to make the catch. ,
Fine Work by Pitchers.
Both Ueorgo Mullin and Charles Adams
pitched admirably. Mullin allowed only
five hits. Adams was hit safely six times.
Adams was unsteady in the opening in-1
nlng when he gave two bases on balls and
allowed two hits. After that he steadied
and Detroit was not able to get more than
one hit In an Inning. '
Mullin was a complete enigma to the lo
cals during: the first three innings. In
these he did not allow a hit and gave but
one bas on , balls. He had retired two
Pittsburg men in the fourth when Clarke
made his home run. Delehanty made a
ridiculous error at the beginning of the
fifth Inning and Abetcin made three baseX
on It. This was fulloejed by a two-bagger
by Uibson and another error by Bush gave
Pittsburg two runs and- the game.
In the fifth. Inning Mullin hit Byrne In the
head with a pitched ball and it lojked
fur an instant as though he had knocked
out the little third bateman. Tho crack
of the ball .against Byrne's head could be
plainly heard, and as he tank to the
ground a murmur of sympathy arose from
the crowd. After a few minutes he was
able to get up and trot to first base.
Pittsburg played with machine-like pre
cislou ail the way and Byrne and Uib.on
starred witli elevtr bits of fielding.
Cobb and Wanner. "
The presence of the leading batter of
each league Cobb and Wagner created
great interest and the work of both men
was closely watched, as many beta have
been made as to which will hit the better
during the aeries. Wagner had the better
of it today, aa he made a two-bagger and
was hit in four times up. giving him an
uveu-fV of .m Cobb failed tp make a hit,
as Leach's fine catch robbed1 him of what
was almost a certain three-bagger. Cobb
was up ;vur times and drew a base on
balls and scored Detroit's only run. Cobb
alto stole a base in the firth inning and
it was on thfs play that Wagner made a
remarkable one-handed catch of Gibson's
low and wide throw. The play was close
and the Pittsburg man disputed Umpire
CLoughlln's decision for some time before
they would continue the game. .
How Detrot "cored.
Detroit acorcd In the first inning, David
Jonea drew a base on balls and Bush sac
rificed him to second. Abstain to Miller.
Adams could not locate the plate and Cobb
also walked. Crawford hit a smart bounder
o Adams and D. Jones was forced' at
tWd by a throw to Byrne. Delehanty
landed a safe hit In left field and Cobb
scored, while Crawford moved to third and
Delehanty to second on the throw to the
plate to catch Cobb. Morlarlty shot a
bounder to shortstop, but It hit Delehanty
and the latter was out, while Mortality
iccetved credit for a hit. The winners were
retired, one, two, three in the first and
tu were out In the second when Absteln
Crew a base on balls. This advantage was
abort lived, as Absteln was caught nap
ping by a quick anap by Mullin to Tom
Jones. Again the Pittsburg men were re
ined in order and It was not until two
were out In the fourth that Clarke's home
lun came; Immediately after this Wagner
was hit by a pitched bull, but Miller
ended the inning with a fly to Cobb.

Children were everywhere on the bleach
ers, on the side lines and on the terraces,
packed In columns like enthusiasts at a
foot ball game.
It was real foot ball weather, too, late
In the afternoon. It's a sick wind, how
ever, that blows nobody any harm and
the interest of the children in the living
pictures before their eyes never fagged.
A fold rain Just at the conclusion of the
exhibition cut the band concert short.
Cavalry harae Stirs Yoana-aters.
Four troops of the Seventh cavalry gave
an exhibition musical sabre drill and con
cluded with varlo is evolutions and a
typical cavalry charge. Tennyson's
"Charge of the I,lght Brigade" was done
to perfection, with '.he exception of the
cannon to light and cannon to left of
them. When the dust cleared away the
squadron of 260 mounted troopers rode
off the parade ground, having completely
won the hearts of theiiilldren.
Then came fast drills with machine
guns by squads from the sixteenth In
fantry. The way the mules scampered
about and came to sudden halts when they
received tho proper signal by vicious Jerks
r.n their tails much amused the youngsters.
This was followed by exhibitions of saddle
packing by squads from the Seventh cav
alry and the performing of Butt'tf manual,
a military callsthenic exercise, by two
battalions from the Thirteenth Infantry.
The rescue, race and the Roman races
were exciting. During the Knman event
one trooper was thrown from the two
steeds he was riding and after appar
ently rolling over arid over under the
hoofs of his horses gamely Jumped up
and remounted the animals. .The artillery
drill by Battery E of the Sith regiment
furnished a blood-curdling exhibition of
real war fireworks. Signal balloons
floated over thj crowds during the after
noon. Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock the Fort
Crook ball team will play the Thirteenth
Infantry nine. Privates Wells and Ken
nedy will be the buttery for the Fort
Crook men and Hcrgesnts Leak and Trut

Then one by one the high and mighty
men of the realm marched .to the lofty

his lovely queen, and gave them personal
pledges of faith and loyalty. The King's

who had come to the. castle with his war
riors and his men-at-arms to assure th
newly crowned ruler that the military
mainstay uf the nation was also al his
feet, ready al all times to do his bid
ding. Thus did all classes of society give
hearty consent to the coronation of the
new king and voice their Joy.
It was In a scene of dazzling splendor that
the coronation of the fifteenth monarch
of (Jul vera took place. Myriads of lights
threw their rays on the assemblage which
had gathered in throngs to see the noble
spectacle. Incandescent bulbs shone down
from ajl parts of the big coronation hall
and draperies and festoons of dnep, rich
ted, green and yellow, the favorite colors
of Ak-Sar-Ben, bunks of green potted
plants and the graceful effects of Japanese
lanterns and umbrellas, which were the
distinctive features of the decorations,
made the hall a place In which the mag
nificent scene to be unfolded before the
eyes of the people could fittingly take
'throne on High Dala.
The throne was set high on a dais
draped In a deep rich red and enclosed
by a golden rail, also hung with red
di aperies. The canopy over the throne
was In the soft golden of the harvest.
Lending to the dais the broad stairway was
earrieted with red.
The main body of the coronation hall
was resplendent with lights and colors.
From the center beam hung eight spiead
ing Japanese umbrellas, each with nine
Japanese lanterns, mellowing the light of
as many Incandescent bulbs. Hanging from
the center beam to the pillars, that sur
round the dance floor were drapniies f
yellow bunting. On the sides between
the pillars weie festoons of the three
colors beautifully blended and the pillars
themselves were masle marvels of beauty
with trailing green vines, topped by trel
lis work covered with cherry blossoms. At
the foot of each pillar potted ferns and
palms were ginuped. O'ltslde the pillar
Inverted Japanese umbrellas broke the
bleakness of tho bare ceiling.
The band furnishing the music for the
royal ceremony was partially hidden
by a bank of pulms at the southern end
of the hall opposite the dais.
