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 eventuated. 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 (Continued on Fage Sixteen.)

GIANTS RALLY NEAR THE END Come Within One II un of Tlelntr Score' "When Bender Weakens In Final Innings of the Game. SHIBB PARK, PHILADELPHIA, Oct 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 York. 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. First Innlnir. New York Snodgrass out on pop fly to Baker. Doyle went out on a high one to Strunk. Barry threw out Fletcher. No run, no hit, no error. Philadelphia Snodgrass went out to play center field, while Shafer replaced 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 courage him. With Eddie Collins up and a run likely the crowd cheered itself hoars". Demaree's first pitch to Collins was a ball. The second pitch was fouled off. Oldrlng was out at the plate when Merkle took Collins' grounder and threw to McLean, who pouched the runner as he slid into the plate. Collins stole sec ond while Demaree held the ball for a mlnutdf Demaree then threw to Merkle, whose throw to second was too late to catch Collins. Baker out on a foul to Shafer. No run, one hit, no error. Second Inning. ' New York Bender worked carefully and slowly. He had good speed and kept the ball on the corners qf the plate. Burns filed out to Murphy. Shafer fanned. Bender finding his weak spot by keeping the bait around Blister's neck. Murray was hit on the arm by a pitched ball and went to first, muttering at Bender, Mc Lean singled to right,' sending Murray to third. Merkle fouled out to Mclnnis, who took the ball over near the Giants' dug. out. No run. one hit, no error. Philadelphia Mclnnls. got a Texas leaguer to center which t,he limping Snod grass could not reach. It was. a lucky hit for Mplnnls, bturnk out, sacrificing, Demaroe to Merljle. Demaree used a slow drop ball on the outside of the plate. Merkle dropped Barry's foul after a good run. The official scorer gave -It one error.

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.

C-harke. 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 proved. 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."
