Every Indication ia that the opening

Would Rather Play Giants.
Whether the Detroit players were pull
ing for Justice or for the big end of the
world's series of prize money may never
b known, but at any rate they were

the Cubs yesterday. While the Tigers

beat Brown. Pflester. Overall and Reul
bach, all of whom trimmed them last

Mr. Chance does not expect the series
will be a walk-over by any means. He
thinks that, on account of the excellence
of Donovan as a pitcher, the Tigers will
prove a tough club to beat. The Cubs
are busy chuckling over what a trail
of woe they left on Broadway.

Prisoner's Face Not Cut Day
Before Wolff Murder.
OVERCOAT AND GUN FIGURE

Half the chain of circumstances
wherewith the state Is seeking to con
vict Edward H. Martin of the murder
of Nathan Wolff was welded yester
day in' the Circuit Court. The state
advanced much of its most convincing
evidence and exploited several of its
most Important witnesses. The Jury
was clearly impressed. The result of
the day's work was this:
Martin was shown to have pur
chased three shirts from Max Drey, a
peddler, a week before the murder. One
of these shirts was found covered with
blood the morning after the murder;
another was found on Martin when he
No Cuts Day Before Murder.
Martin had no cuts or martcs on his
face when he was shaved the day be
fore the murder of Wolff. When he
was arrested his face, head and hands
were badly marked. There were evi
dences, that Wolff fought desperately
with his slayer.
Martin wore a box overcoat of pe
culiar color and style for months pre
vious to the murder. Six days after
the tragedy a coat precisely similar
was found In a vacant lot in South
Portland. 1"he garment was smeared
with blood. The rifle had been taken
from Wolff's pawnshops
When the murderer left his victim
he went to the door and stood waiting
for a favorable chance to leave. He
was Injured, for blood collected at the
door. The trail of blood led south
ward from the door; hence this is a
supporting circumstance of the finding
of coat and gun in South Portland.
Strong Points Yet to Come.
Those were the principal points of
the day. They had to be brought out
very largely by devious methods, for
the chain of circumstances is a long
one and must be put together little by

rules of evidence. The state's attor

Razor home disclosed the fact that one
