'CONTEST IS A RAGGED ONE Victory of 'Nationals Mainly Doe to Conrase and Coolness of "Din Jim" Vaughn, Who Stand 1 Fat Before Onslaught. I CHICAGO, Oct. 8. In a thrilling- thlr-I'teen-lnnlng battle the Chicago Nationals , made the standing In the Chicago cham i plonshlp series one and ono this after ! noon, downing the American leaguer, 6 to 6, before 29,368 "persons. The victory of the'Cubs was dije mainly to the cour age and coolness of "Big Jim" Vaughn, who' refused to give way before the vig orous attack of the south aiders. The game was a ragged one and poor plays were as Important factors in It as I good ones. Though Clcotte was ham mered hard, ho might have lasted If some poor playing back of him had not ' been bunched In the fourth round a dis astrous Inning for the White Sox. In that Inning Chappelle, whose timely hit In the eighth pushed Chase over with the tlelng run, let loose a wild throw that struck the grandstand; Schalk muffed a throw' from Lord that let In' a run and Bodle, later delivering an opportune sin gle, misjudged Archer's short fly so badly that two runs counted on the hit and the Cub catcher drew up at second. Singles by Bvera and Sohulte and a safe bunt by Zimmerman had opened the In ning, which ended only after the west eiders had scored four runs. Dens Succeeds Clcotte In Fifth. Bern succeeded Clcotte in the fifth after Xach's safe drive, a pass to Overs and Sctiulte's hit scored the former, and after .that he pitched a great game until" the 1 thirteenth. Then Zimmerman singled, Baler walked. Good filed out and Brld- well was passed. With the bases full Archer shot a drive into left and Zimmer man counted the winning run, Saler be ing caught at the plate on the throw-In. The Sox bunched sir hits In the fourth for three runs. Lord made the first of them and In trying to score from second en Bodle's single a moment later collided with Zimmerman In rounding third base. To Umpire CLoughlln, as well as to most of the spectators, It looked like a deliber ate attempt at Interference by the Na tional's third baseman and Lord was al lowed to score. Score Tied In Eighth. 1 Hfrers fumble gave Bodle a life in the sixth and Collins hit and two Infield (outs gave the American leaguers their I "fourth run. They tied the score In the eighth. Chase opened the round with a single and Bodle laid down a perfect sac rifice. Collins" fly to Leach was too amort to help, but Chappelle drove out khAneeded hit and Chase scored.

The St. Louis Na tlonals defeated the St Louis Americans In the opening game today of the series to decide the championship of the city by a score of 1 to 0, The teams, which finished eighth In their respective leagues, put up a won derful exhibition In the field behind great pitching. Bailee and WeUman were the pitchers that worked In the duel of left handers, the former gaining the verdict, when his rival made a wild throw to second base to catch a runner. .The Na tionals secured but one hit oft the Browns' elongated hurler, but the blow did not figure In the scoring. Alio run was the result of a base on balls to Whltted.

The American leaguers passed the ball back and forth on the side lines. ine sun succeeded finally In burning a hole through the clouds about 1 o'clock and the Indications of a probable clear afternoon helped keep the crowd In good humor.

NEW YORK, Oct. 3. -The New York Giants and the Phila delphia Athletics, pennant winners of the National and American leagues. crossed bats here this afternoon In the third , contest of the world's base ball serles Thirty-five thousand persons, un dismayed by a constant threat of heavy rain, swarmed the vast concrete stadium to view the struggle. Kach team, with a victory to Its credit', was determined to win the day's game to obtain what the ball players call "the Jump on the other fellows." "You know luck breaks better for the leading team," tatd Larry Doyle of the New Tork Nationals, "and that's why we will be out there today to beat the Ath letics." A soggy field, drenched by hours of hard rain, slowed up the fielding of both Giants and Athletics. Water had soaked through the coverings during the night and a dozen ground keepers worked from dawn to game time to dry out the mot ture. Gallons of gasoline were sprinkled on the base paths and the early specta tors saw what appeared like the sart of a prairie fire. The ground was then care fully sanded and the puddles In the out field were sponged up. Umpire Rlgler Inspected the grounds at 10:30 o'clivck and reported tl diamond in shape to play It there was no more rain. The gates were Immediately opened and a fits of weather-anxious spectators, that stretched for four or five blocks away from the entrances, passed Into tho unreserved stands, scores of women stood for several hours waiting for the gates to open. And they were Just as lively as the men In the rush for the front row seats. Comparison of Teams. "We're a crippled team," remarked John McGraw grimly, "but we will have a good club In the field today, as Mack's men will find out." The Athletics came to the Polo grounds with every member in fine playing con dltlon. riuea wim rar greater assurance than on the opening day before the teams had tested each other's mettle, New York fans began to flock to the grounds. Tho wonderful pitching of the great Mathew on yesterday and the fine way his mates had rallied to his support and with crippled team preventing a single Phlla- delphlan from reaching the plate had worked wonders with the spirit of tho club's followers. On the other hand, Fhlladelphlans were In no wlso dismayed by the defeat thel team had sustained In the first game at Shlbe park. Again, as In the first game he worked In the 1811 series, the wizardry of tho veteran Mathewaon had been too much for the Mackmen, but they and their partisans recalled that they had hit him freely on other occasions two years ago. Tesrau and Demaree, one of whom McGraw was expected to start today, are practically strangers to tne wnite Elephant!. In number of available!, the superiority lay with Mack, who had given a season' hard work for the schooling of Brown Bush, Houck and Shawkey and by work. Ing them through when fit and In relays when the acting twjrler began to show signs of wavering, successfully woi game after game In the regular leagu onion. In quality, however, New Yorkers olaimed that McQraw was far ahead with Tesreau, a man who has bee through the wire of a world's series an who showed so brilliantly In the few In nlngs he pitched on Tuesday at the Polo grounds, and Demaree, a leader among this years National league twlrlers. MeGrarr laj Confident. "In comparlton with what our oppon ents have left my remaining pitching staff tooks mighty good to me." said McGraw, Connie Mack was less explicit, but ap parently he had no fear of the outcom "We are not a bit discouraged by our defeat." he said. The Giants with the mighty Matty mowing down the Philadelphia hitters In a row and giving the Mackmen a coat of white wash got away with yester day's game In splendid fashion. But It was not to be denied t' at tho crippling Omaha's ijBaewianBBBBi What "satisfaction assurance did you get with the clothes you are wearing? If they were bought nt our store and hnvo the Berg lnbel (under tho loose lining belov tho collar) you are positivo . that you are wearing the best. Tho satisfaction of your purchase is backed not only by this store, but by the makers, who have tailored good clothes continuously for years you get Btylo, fit, comfort and service and at a saving, too. Come in today for n try-on beforeour big mirrors. Suits and $ " Overcoats I of Meyers and Merkle, with the con tlnued Inability of Fred Snodgrass to ptay his game, was likely to prove a severe handicap for McGraw's men. Shafor's comparative Inexperience In the outfield showed Its effect In Tues day's game. In which his playing of Schang's drive that went for three bases had been freely criticised. Larry McLean, while he started the at tack which led to Plank's undoing yes terday, la so slow of foot that McGraw Usually feels Impelled to put In a run ner for the big fellow when he lands safely on a sack by virtue of a hit, a pass or an error, lest he effectually block tho paths of swifter men. With Meyers Injured this process early In a game would compell the substitution of one f the younger catchers, Wilson or Hart ley, whose nerves the speody Athletic runners might try Reverely. Merklr Horn Flnv Work. Merkle started out to hit well In this series and ho la an experienced first sacker, which George Wiltse Is not, al though this fine fielding pitcher gave a plendld account of himself at Shlbe Park, saving the game for the Giants by his skillful handling of taps by Lapp and Plank In the ninth Inning. Altogether the general batting and base running and probably the defensive trcugth of the Giants Is lessened by the Inability of the crippled trio to play. As the series stood this morning, how- over? even with the Giants' crippled team, the advantage at tho start looked to many close observers of the play to be with the National leaguers. They at least had one superbly dependable pitching vet eran against none for Mack, whose prob able expectation of taking two games with Bender and Plank before having to resort to his young twlrlers had been spoiled by the phenomenal work of Mathewson. Oreighton to Play Wesleyan Today at University Place The Crelghton foot ball squad, thirty strong, Is at Lincoln today, where the Blue and White meets Nebraska Wes leyan at University Place thla afternoon. n the squad are tho regulars, about twenty In number, who will take part In the game, and the most faithful and val uable members of the scrub lineup. In uddltlon to the players, Coach Harry Mlllor. Manager Justin Young and Trainer James Kelly wilt accompany the squad. They leave the Omaha Union station via the Burlington .at 9:15 and leave Lincoln for the return trip at p. in. The wearers of the blue and white will be supported by a large delegation of students from alt departments of the university and extra accommodations will be furnished by the railroad for the root ers. This is one or mo two games wnicn Crelghton plays this year on foreign ter ritory, the other being in St. Louis. Crelghton will enter tho game In good shape, as none of the regulars are suf fering from Injuries. Parker has recov ered from an Injury to his arm, while Loady Is now wearing a cast made espe cially for hlB Injured leg and expects no trouble from that member. Crelghton Is well fortified with subs, having two sets of backfleld men, three quarterbacks and three setB of ends. WEBSTE" CITY TROTTER'S REMARKABLE RECORD WEBSTER CITY, la., Oct. 9.-(BpecUL) George LeValley has Just returned to this city with his remarkable trotting horse, "The Deacon," from a tour of the racing circuits of Iowa, Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin. "Tho Doncon" has a phenomenal record, which probably can not bo equaled In all the United States, or, perhaps, In the world. During his five years of racing this hors has never fin ished worse than fourth, staying always Inside the money. And at that he has but three fourth places In his record. "Tlvi Deacon" has been much written about In the big horse and sporting magailnes, the Horse Review but recently having carried an Illustrated story on him. Two years ago "The Deacon" was one of fifty-six horses In all the United States that had won fifty-eight heats during his racing career. This remarkable horse now, however, has a total of eighty-six heats won to his credit. His record aa a world beater, though, will probably stand on the record that during five seasons h has never been behind the money, and that even then he has only three fourth places to his credit. His season this year was comparatively short. Mr. LeValley started him in only nine races. On these nine, however, he won five firsts, three seconds and one third. Two Games at Beatrice. BEATRICE, Nob., Oct. 9. (Special.) A double-header foot ball game has been arranged for next Saturday at thla place. The regular eleven wilt play the South Ornaha team and the second high school eleven will meet the Wymore team. Both local teams have been training hard this week for these games.

KANSAS MAY NOT BE CLEAN It Is Snld the Jnyhnwlcera Have Sev ern! Player Whose Elldlbtllty 31lfrht lie Questioned by thr Athnrlt!r. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Oct. 9.-(Speclal.)-The Ne brnska Athletic board, at a meeting here thla evening, decided to turn down tho protest of the University of Kansas and the Kansas Aggies against Clint Roes, Nebraska's bl gguard, on color lines. Secretary Clapp was notified to immediately wire tho Kansas schools of the action of the board. Not n dissenting vote was cast against the resolutions, which Coach Stlehm him self drafted, declaring Ross eligible to participate In the games. The resolutions called attention to the fact that Nebraska had never enforced the color line and hod always allowed colortd players to par tlclpate. The board took the attitude that now was not tho time to Invoke the rule.
