PiniiADELiPIIIA, Oct. 10. (Special
Telegram.) Philadelphia's wonderful base
ball machine put Itself within one gamo
of another world's pennant today by
winning the fourth gamo of the 1313
series, 6 to 6, although Manager McGraw
used up two Giant pitchers In a des
perate attempt to even up the count.
That puts It up to Mathewson In the last
ditch, for another victory for the Ath
letics tomorrow means the death of New
York's fondest hopes.
Manager Mack crossed the dopesters
by' coming back today with Chief Bender
after only two days' rest and the gaunt
veteran proved equal to the demands
mode on him, Just that and no more.
The way the Giants rallied In one of the
gamest, the fiercest, uphill fights- base
ball has seen for years, and came "within
thirty yards of tying up the score after
being utterly licked, 6 to 0, would have
driven any loss resourceful and fearless
pitcher than Bender tqith woods. In full
retreaL Jt would have fiutared.and
icorau- Bny icsa k inrowo ana fxoi urouicu
manager than C. MoGllllouddy Into
switching pitchers and perhaps tossing
thd game away that way.
Demnree Poorly Backed Up.
The little general of tha Giants took
his cue from Connie and gambled on a
young pitcher by sending Al Demaree
to the slab for this battle. But Demaree
had no such help In his world's series
debut as the Athletics gave eslle Bush
yesterday at the Polo grounds. The
Giants made no five-run lead for their
hurler lh the first two Innings, nor did
they give him good support. Two slips
behind the young slabman proved ter
ribly costly and the powerful Athletics
showed him absolutely no mercy. They
trimmed Demaree for four of their six
runs In four innings, and then with the
game apparently gone McGraw switched
to Marquard, who succeeded In checking
the Athletics after they had mauled two
tallies out of his left-handed delivery in
the fifth Inning.
In making this switch when he did,
MrGraw showed that he had every con
fidence his men were going to get to
Bender before the finish. He knew they
could beat four runs, and they did, but
they could not beat six, although they
came frightfully close to It. The Gotham
pilot apparently guessed that Chief Ben
der would tire under the strain of two
such games In four days, and his guess
Bender SaTea Himself.
Massing six genuine hits, including a
home run, a three-bagger and & double,
in the seventh and eighth Innings, the
Giants wiped out all but one run of

Score' "When Bender Weakens In
Final Innings of the
10. The Athletics, champions of the
American league, won their third vic
tory In the world's series of ,1313 by de
feating the New York Giants by a score
base b&irr Twentyfhoilsar!d people saw
a contest in whioh the Athletics took a
slx-rUn lead orer their opponents only
to have it cut down t6 i scant one,
wflen New York fell on the Indian Ben
der's delivery and with a fusillade of
six- hits sent five runs oyer the plate.
Bender held: the Giants to two hits in
the first six Innings and then was
found freely. Merkle's home run and
Shafer'g threc-baggcr featured the New
York hitting.
A circus catch bv Oldrtnc cut off a
run for New 'York. The Athletics de
fense Was perfect. Tlie Athletics have
now won three games and the New
Yorks one game In the series.
The two teams play at the Polo
grounds tomorrow and Christy Mathew
son will undoubtedly pitch for New
Connie Mack's reliance In his veteran
pitcher, Bender, did not seem to have
been misplaced, and, although the Giants
got to him lit the final innings of the
game, he held them safe enough to stave
off defeat.
That the cripples were a heavy handi
cap to McGraw was evidenced In 'the
enrly innings of the game, 'when Snod
grass was unable to come In for a Texas
leaguer, which ordinarily he might have
nailed, and later, when Merkle muffed a
foul, which was charged to him as an
error. "
Bender and Schang were the selection for
the Athletics and Demaree and McLean
for the New Yorks were announced
as the batteries for today's game.
Umpire Egan gave the decisions at the
plate; Umpire Klem took the base paths;
Connolly to right field and Rlger to
left field.

Henog at third. Murphy filed out to
Snodgrass. Oldrlng shot a long hit Into
right field for three bases. Ho smashed
the first ball pitched. The New York
players gathered around Demaree to en

a run likely the crowd cheered itself

was a ball. The second pitch was fouled
off. Oldrlng was out at the plate when

Aubert's Expedition
failed Because His
Men Deserted Him
MEXICO; ClTYi Oct, WThe failure
ot' -Uensral Truey Aubert Yo get tT the
city ot Torfeon In time to relieve It a
mission on Vhlch, he set out from Eal
tlllo heiHir tninth" aid with a large
force of federal' troops is explained by
the fact that the greater part ot his
2,000 . meh deserted htm before ho had
completed halt of his Journey.
He had reached Madera, twenty-fivo
mites east ot Torreon, whon news
reached him. As soon as tho vanguard
of the retreating federal troops came into
View, General Aubert's men fled with all
their arms and ammunition.
The report that General Aubert had
gone over to the rebels was nbt substan
tiated. He s said today to Bo at Hlpo
llto, fifty mile west of Saltlllo, to which
point he retreated with the mon who had
evacuated Torreon under Ignaclos,, Bravo,
Mungula .and Escuero.
General Alvlrex, who started with 1,000
men, two siege ' gttis and a number ot
pieces of light artillery to retake the city
of Durango frorn the rebels and whoso
defeat caused the evacuation of Tor
reon, fell Into an aiabuscade at La Loma,
thirty miles to the southwest of Torreon.
(Relying on Information that the rebels
had left the vicinity, he moved forward.
Suddenly he found both advance and
his retreat cut off n a canyop by heavy
forces of rebels, wfio poured In a Bharp
fire from both aides of the pass. General
jMvlrez made a stout resistance and
managed to get word back to Torreon
asking for reinforcements.
Another story of the same fight is
that the federal troop under General
Xlvlrex broke and f(ed aa soon as the
first shot had been fired.
General Alvirez. who was regarded aa
one ot the .bravest officers In the fed
eral army, was captured with his staff
and all are said to have been executed
on tho spot by the. rebels.
After the battle, the rebel troopswlth
the captured artillery, proceeded to Tor
reon, where they found that the federal
garrison had evacuated tho city. Out of
tho total garrison qt Torreon, estimated
at 4,000 men, 100 have been accounted for
as being In Hlpolltb. There were torty
elght pieces of artillery In Torreon, none
of which was saved.

Former Candidate for President
Speaks for Prosecution
Says Court of Poblto oVlatn M?s 'Al

( Crime . Not Homed In .
ALBANY, N. Y.r Oct. lO.-Never slnca
the Impeachment trial, or Governor Suiter
opened has he been subjected to suoh &
severe verbal flaying as Judge Alton B.
Parker delivered lh his remarks for the
board of managers today. The castlgar
tlon came before the court had scarcely
settled down to work, the Judge ijierely
taking a few minutes ot the morning
session before giving way , to Judge D.
Cody Herrlck for the defense.
"Before this bar the defendant stands
guilty of these offenses charged by the
Impeachment and proved by uncontro
verted evidence," sold Judge Parker,. "Be
fore tho bar of the court of public opinion
this defendant stands condemned on tho
further damning testimony ot his shifty
defenses and his futile efforts to dodge
by technicalities the . -la! of tho issuos
before this high court. In these actions
public opinion with a freedom not com
mitted to Judicial opinion finds direct
evidence of guilt. The same public opin
ion takes cognizance of the fact that the
defendant Is Buffering from such a se
vere attack of moral nearsightedness that
even when directed by a myriad of scorn
ful fingers he cannot discern the crimi
nal and dishonorable naturo of the acts
All Ulso-aleea Torn Away.
"Even Justice must see through its se
ver eye something of the pathetic in
this defendant's frantic efforts to cover
he nakedness of his wrongdoing. De
fiance, defense, Justification, prevarica
tion, denunciation of his accusers, at
tempts to suppress and falsify testimony
and efforts to cast the blame elsewhere
each in turn has been stripped from his
quaking flesh until he stands now naked
before this court without a rag of his
attempted vindication clinging to his de
formed and mutilated manhood.
"Every disguise has been torn from his
book, from the petticoat In which he
trusted for safety to the armor of defi
ance In which he threatened to attack
and expose a political leadership to which
wo have found him suing for a merciful
obliteration of his misdeeds and offering
the bribe of submission.
Effort to Coerce Court,
"No act of his shows more perfectly
the complete baseness of his character,
unfitting him utterly for any public or
private trust, than does his effort to
coerce the members of this court through
channels which his warped Intellect mls
takingly Instructed him held the power
of coercion.
"RAgardlcss of the origin of theee
charges, regardless of any personal in
fliction of discomfort, this court must,
we feel certain, find on all the evidence
that this defendant has been guilty of
misconduct so gross as to necessitate his
removal for the honor, peace, prosperity
and good government ot this community.
"With this court alone rests the duty
of delivering this state from the menace
that hangs above it so long as this man
remains In the executive chair.
"And to this court we shall 'commit
the decision of the case against William
Sulzer, securely confident that the honor,
safety and welfare of thl Empire state
are assured of the protection contem
plated by the constitution In the creation
of this high court."
