NEW YORK. Oct. 7.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) That same powerful attack
which earned them an American league
pennant enabled the Philadelphia Ath
letics to triumph over New York's
Giants today In the opening game of the
world's championship series of 1913 by
a score of 6 to 4, before a crowd which
was below the Polo grounds records, but
would hare passed It if the officials had
not been overcautious in closing the
Only a little over 56,000 persons were
admitted to the arena to watch the bit
ter battle which resulted from the clash
of tho season's champion teams, and
that was 2,000 shy of the high water
mark of 1911. But more than 16,000 dis
appointed fans, shut out of the battle
field, surrounded It and listened all aft
ernoon to the cheering, and such scraps
of Information as their luckier brethren
would impart to them over the concrete
Dad Day for Pitcher.
Chief Bender, gaunt, bronze skinned
hero of many a post-season contest,
proved resourceful enough in spite of his
great age to cope with the Giants all the
way. He had no easy time of It, for the
men of McGraw fought the gamest kind
of a battle, relying for a successful as
sault after they apparently had been
beaten off and fighting for victory right
down to the last man out. Three pltchors
were used by Manager McGraw in an
effort to stop the potent rushes of the
Athletics, and only one of them proved
successful.. Hube Marquard a son.
GIbear, of much renown In the National
lSagutnW'y'ear, was AfcGraw's choice ai
the start,, and for three Innings he looked
all over the winner. IJut in .the. fourth
and fifth periods ihe Maokmen massed,
their hits' on him and won the game. Old
Doc Crandall, prescrlber for many a sick
combat during his years of service, was
asked to check the Athletics after the
Giant almost caught them in the fifth.
He Was good for a pair of Innings, than
was driven to cover and Tesreau came on
too late to. save the day.
Ilittinfr Shows Difference.
The Giants made as many hits off
Bender as the Athletics did off the trio
of Giant slabmen, but could not combine
them as well, and there was far less
power behind their safe drives. Of the
eleven safeties made off the "veteran
Indian, only one was for extra bases,
and he would have quelled even their
most successful attack without trouble If
Barry had played up to his usaul stand
ard. The Athletics drovo some of their
eleven hits much farther away than the
Giants could. Two doubles, a pair of
triples and one home run were included
In the Philadelphia swats.
Thero is no need to tell you who made
the 'home run. It was the lad you all
expected would do it, none other than
Prank Baker, and It was Just as effoctlve
as the historic swats he made in the
world's battle of 1911. It came with two
out and Collins on second In the fifth in
ning and accounted for the two runs by
which the Mackmen were victorious and
compelled McGraw to withdraw Mar
fluard. Eddie Collins, who was the owat-

In corference with the officials of the
reclamation service over the question of
grates for the new line of road between
Guernsey and Wendover, Wyo., left for
Nebraska today, having reached an agree
ment with the government authorities
whereby the work of building tunnels
through Iron mountain may' go on.
In order not to Interfere-with the plans
ot the reclamation service, which con
templates the building of a dam between
Wendover and Guernsey, the establish
ment of a grade was essentially neces
sary before the railroad company could
begin the running of its levels; Mr.
Westervelt presented the difficulties con
fronting his company as to grades and
the necessity of expeditious action In
order that the projected line from Laurel
In Montana to Guernsey, Wyo., through
Casper and Douglas, might be begun In
ths early spring.
After muoh consultation It was decided
to fix the levels ut 4.415 feet above the
sea, lih will necessitate the Burling
ton running three tunnels through Iron
mountain at a cost of 31,500,000 In order
to reach the new country opened up by
the North Platte project, and this new
territory. It Is expected, will add mate

Ityan said that Sulzer asked him to see

and request him to see Murphy.
"He wanted me." the witness said,
"to havo Mr. Nlcoll sway Mr. Murphy to

Byan was not cross-examined.
