Better Luck in New York; Expect Rube
Benton to Pull a Repeater on
(By '..Mlsted rmt.) o
On Board Giants' Special Train.
Oct. H.-The New York Giants were
still in a semi-dazed condition as
they passed through Detroit today on
their second great strategic retreat
from Chicago. The shock of their de
feat in the fifth game of the series
after they had apparently hammered
- the White Sox into submission was
an even greater blow to their vanity
than the loss of two straight games on
s their first trip to Chicago. ;
' Y - The blow was all to their pride,
however, and did not reach their con
fidence which is still going strong.
They talce the stand that Manager
Rawlings is very weak and so are
. , his pitchers and the White Sox will
, be at a great disadvantage when they
, play the seventh and deciding game
of the scries at the Polo grounds..
'No Thought to Defeat
This indicates that they gave no
thought to the possibility that they
might be defeated at the Polo grounds
tomorrow and so end the scries before
the seventh game could be reached,
i nor did they. Their every speculation
as to their, immediate futures was
based on the supposition that Rube
-j, Benton would "pull t repeater" at
New York tomorrow and make the
outcome of the series contingent upon
the result ot a single game.
Gianti Offer no Alibi. .
The Giants made no excuses for
yesterday'a overwhelming defeat and
offered no alibi., They simply admitted
that they were outplayed, outlucked
. and outgeneralled and deserved to
lose. They were Jceenly disappointed
but not nearly so downcast as might
have been expected,

EXPANSION OF FORT

The superintendent makes the fol
lowing comment on the subject:

Two battalions of the army men

The rapidity and accuracy with
which the Americans installed four

French cousins. Within five minutes
after the orders were issued the men
were at work on the job.
