PHILLIES TAKE THE GAME
Continued From First Page),
ment the Red Sox went adrift into some
mental maze that brought disaster,
rhllliea -Oct the Jump."
After the same the polite and fash
ionable chit-chat of the evening was
ail to the effect that the Phils had all
the luck. But if you only will follow
the trend of most sport you will find
that fate, the iron-handed, usually sets
in wiih the side that plays the better
ball, and so fate sat in the first bi
Kame which has given Philadelphia the
jump and Alexander two days' rest be
fore he groes back to the Job again upon
a hostile field.
Outside of any luck, there were four
vital factors that brought Red Sox de
feat. One '3 the iron-hearted steadi
ness of Alexander, who was as cool
under a heavy fire as if he had been
pitching world series games ever since
he left St. Paul, flat upon its bush
league i-ack. He was not at his best
he was not enjoying one of his wonder
ful afternoons, but when ihe main test
came and one more biow would furnish
trouble the big fellow had enough
which is always the answer.
He had enough to bold Boston to one
run. although he needed a grand catch
ny Dode Paskert in the eighth to keep
his crown on at the proper angle. If
Dodo hadn't raced far and fast for a
mighy wallop from Larry Gardner in
the i"ghth. the big dance m St. Paul
might have been called off tonight and
the red fire burnt in . Philadelphia
would have been tinged with an indigo
flame. In the first eight rounds some'
Red Sox batsman smashed a drive to
safe soil, but in no one round were
there two hits lumped together, which
is pinch hitting to a high degree.
Shore, while more brilliant, was not
nearly as steady.
Fate Against Shore.
Shore had a barrel of stuff, but
against this he had fate, his own mates
and himself set at variance.
Paskerfs sliced punch in the fourth
inning was the only- drive from the
tall Red Sox pitcher that struck out
field territory. Yet. in the eighth
round, when the battle lines were in
hand-to-hand conflict and the issue
was hanging in the mists of the doubt.
Shore lost his balance and broke, reel
ing so badly that two fatal passes and
a badly played tap put him on the
hog train to a finish. It may have beea
that all those scratchy infield hits,
most of them from badly batted balls,
finally got upon Shore's nerves. But
the main point is that within two
jumps of the wire the Boston pitcher
did a. Mount McKinley, the final Im
petus coming when young Scott failed
to cover second In the eighth on
Barry's miraculous stop well back of
the bag. But this comes in for later
Four vital factors were introduced
as appertaining- to the Red Sox' de
feat. The case of theflrst, Alexander,
has been proved. The second developed
in the first round before Big Alex had
his gait. Harry Hooper opened the
jubilee with a safe smash and Scott
sacrificed. Speaker drew a pass and
Hoblitzel forced him at second. This
combination left Hooper on third with
Hobby at first, two out and Duffy Lewis
Hoblitz' Carelessness Costly.
Now, Duffy Lewis happens to be the
most dangerous individual batting
factor of the campaign. He has the
punch in the pinch as well as any man
in baseball. Alexander was up against
a rugged proposition when Hoblitz
came to his aid by strolling too -far
off first, being easily shot down on
a fast peg to Luderus. This play broke
one of Boston's best chances to get
away on the jump.
The third vital factor cropped out in
the fourth round, when Paskert singled
to right. Cravath followed with a sac
rifice to Shore, a fairy sharp tap, that
found Paskert off to a slow start over
the muddy towpath. Shore, handling
the- sacrifice, had 27 minutes or a bit
less to nail Paskert at second. - The
Philly outfielder was still many yards
from a safe haven, but Shore after
hesitating, threw to first and thereby
helped to produce the first run.
An infield tap by Luderus shoved Dode
on to third and Whitted's slow infield
grounder went for a timely hit and the
Scott Amazed Transfixed.
The fourth and deciding factor came
in the eighth round, just after Speak
er's walk and Lewis' single had tied
the count. The Phillies were at bat
with Shore still pitching grand ball.
After Alexander had passed out. Stock
walked. Bancroft then followed with
a clean sharp jab towards center field.
Barry started for the ball and young
Scott apparently started toward center
field to help tin relay back in. Then,
to his amazement, he saw that Barry
was about to make p.n impcssible play,
and instead of whirling in towards sec
ond. Scott stood as fixed as ihe pyra
mids while Barry snagged the ball
with one hand far back cf second place
and turned with no one there to take
the throw. If Scott had covered
Barry's gret play, the climax of a
great day for the ex-Mackman would
have forced Stv-k at second and
cracked the rally.
Share Their Avlatea.
But this fourth mental Boston lapse
was too much for Shore and fate to
stand. Shore than went sky-high,
walked Paskert and filled the bases.
Cravath's slow infield top passed from
Scott to Hobby, but Stock scored and
a moment later, a short fuzzy tap in
front of the plate eluded Shore, yield
ing Luderus a hit and Bancroft the
third Philly run.
You can call this fate, hard iuck
and what you will, but there were
three chances to break up Philadelphia
rallies and choke down runs which
Boston failed to take. Those lucky,
slow-twisting dinky infield taps did
their share of It. but they would never
have scored a run if the Red Sox had
played jam-up baseball, the sort they
have usually played in the big games
of the year.
Lapses Held Responsible.
Philadelphia went through greater
steadiness of Alexander plus the men
tal lapses of the Red Sox club. Yet.
the Red Sox have, upon the average,
a quick-thinking club. One of the
quickest In the game. But in this first
test they were found wanting at too
many places along the highway to ex
pect any triumph. The Phillies backed
up Alexander well with Paskerfs star
ring. But they were helpless before
the sailing shoots of Shore as only one
of their five hits was pumped beyond
the soggy infield.
The other four were scratchy enough
to strike a match with but Boston's
laggard thinking made them as val
uable as line drives to unguarded
spots. The bulk of their offense came
from the Red Sox. who blundered at
the wrong time to beat a man like
On the form of the first game the
Red Sox showed the stronger attack
and offense, led by the brilliant Barry,
physically as good as the Phillies, but
Alexander failed to weaken when
crowded closely, as Shore did. and the
Phillies made no mental slips, and the
Red Sox did. and this is quite suffi
cient to tell the story of the first big
battle. The game was played upon
a slow, heavy field, but beneath a
cloudless sky and before all the people
nature would permit to assemble in a
The Saturday battle should furnish
an even better line on the possibilities
and probabilities of the two con
tenders. FANS BLOCK BOSTON" STREETS
Interest Wanes as Play Fails to
Favor Ked Sox.
BOSTON. Oct. 8. Business In many
places in this city today paused, while
thousands of persons learned of the
progress of the opening world's series
baseball game in Philadelphia between
the Philadelphia Nationals and the
Boston Americans. The Red Sox de
feat was received calmly, the crowds
having lost much of their enthusiasm
as opportunity after opportunity for
a Boston score passed without profit.
Only in the eighth inning, when the
Red Sox run was made, did the throngs
applaud for more than a moment.
Although Shore's wildness. which
made Philadelphia's runs in the eighth
inning possible, was a disappointment,
some of the bulletin board crowds saw
a ray of future hope in the fact that
the Red Sox had made eight hits off
Arrangements for play-by-play re
ports of the game today were the most
elaborate ever made in this city. - At
Braves' Field, where the Boston end
of the series will be played: at Fenway
Park, and at four auditoriums, several
thousand persons paid admission fees
to follow the details of the play.
Countless other thousands thronged
the spaces in front of a half & dozen
newspaper offices, where, by mechani
cal devices or megaphones or posted
bulletins, they were kept in touch with
events at Philadelphia. Streets were
impassable In many places, and stores
were forced to stop business as a re
sult of these crowds. '

SHIPS CHANGE RUNS
Steamers Tampico and Eu
reka May Exchange Places.
PANAMA DELAY IS CAUSE
Australian Cereal Rusb Is Ended,
but South American Trade Is
Active and Shows Great In
crease Over Last Year.
Negotiations are under way to sub
stitute tae steamer Tampico. which is
at San Francisco discharging Phila
delphia cargo, part of her load being
destined for Portland, for the steamer
Eureka, which was to load here the
latter part of the month for West Coast
ports in the. service of Sudden & Chris
tenson. but is now held at the eastern
entrance to the Panama Canal. She
sailed from Philadelphia September IS
with San Francisco and Portland cargo.
The Tampico is looked for here next
week and the original programme was
for her to discharge and proceed to
load a New York cargo for the Cros-sett-Western
Lumber Company, her
charterers. The probability that the
Canal would be closed when she was
ready to start for New York, also the
fact it is not positive the waterway
will be cleared November 1. has re
sulted in a proposal that the Tampico
take on the West Coast flour cargo
and load nitrates at one of the South
American ports for New York, which
had been the itinerary of the Eureka.
In that way the latter will be here to
load lumber for New York as soon as
she can make her way north after the
Canal is cleared.
In July the Sudden & Christenson in
terests dispatched the steamer Henry
T. Scott for the West Coast, following
her in August with the lsabela and in
September with the John A. Hooper.
It has been understood that the engage
ment of the Eureka for October would
be followed by the placing of other
steamers on the berth so a monthly
service, would be maintained. Recently
the Grace interests have switched their
regular carriers, the Cacique. Colusa
and Cuzco, so it is expected they will
be returned to the regular South Amer
ican run now that the rush of cereals
to Australia is ended, a trade in which
they figured while chartered steamers
were used between here and West Coast
So far this season Portland has ex
ported 225,660 bushels of wheat to
South America, and for the first quar
ter of the 1914-15 season only 10.1S1
bushels had been shipped there. In the
way of flour 76.610 barrels have been
exported to South America, and a year
ago there had not been any flour di
verted: to tnose countries.
Puget Sound is nursing the South
American trade through the Grace line
and it is said the North Pacific steamer
Yucatan, which is there with ore from
Oakland for Tacoma, will load a South
American cargo after carrying railroad
material from the northern harbor to
Alaska. Portland had established a
trade with the West Coast in advance
of the Kuropean war's outbreak, but
for several months afterward trans
portation was not regular.
CHINESE FORCED BACK TO SEA
Oriental Unable to Reach Home and
Family After Three Years.
ASTORIA. Or., Oct. 8. (Special.)
John Ah Soe, a Chinese cook on the
barkentine Puako. left today on that
vessel for Melbourne, Australia, after
a vain attempt to reach his home m
Valparaiso. On arrival of the barken
tine here about a month ago. Soo was
permitted to land after the skipper of
the cra.'t had furnished a bond in the
sum of $500. and that was the first
time in threes years the Celestial had
set his loot on shore. Soon afterwards
Soc sought the aid of the Immigration
Department in returning to his home
in :M-uth Amorica.
Inspector Gooch accompanied the
man from here to San Francisco and
tried to purchase a ticket for him to
Valparaiso. The steamship companies
refused to issue tho transportation to
a Chinaman, because the man would
not be permitted to land at ports which
their steamers touch. Accordingly, Soo
was compelled to return to Astoria
and sail - n the Puako. Soo had $1500
due him from the barkentine when he
arrived at this port and is said to have
a family and own a home in Val
paraiso. COAST BARS FEEL SWELLS
Small Coasters Are Delayed and
Captain Pinding. of the gasoline
schooner Patsy, which arrived from
Oregon Coast ports yesterday and was
started on the return last night with
200 tons for Yaquina, Siuslaw and the
Umpqua. said the vessel was detained
because of big sees running, every bar
that she crossed either breaking or
showing effects of the heavy swells.
The detention of Ihe small coasters
has plied up cargo on some docks, but
they are beinsr returi-ed to their sched
ules as fast as possible. The Ahwaneda
was cleared yesterday with 83 tons for
Bandon. Myrtle Point and Newport.
The Tillamook is looked for In a day
or two. and will be dispatched with
a full cargo. The break in schedule
has prevented the Government dredge
Oregon from getting started on the
channel between the Tillamook Bay
bar and Bay City, and R. F. Cole,
Junior engineer aboard, was her yes
terday arranging to ship pipeline pon
toons for the dredge by rail.
RACING SHIPS START CLOSE
Puako Sails Less Than Three Hours
Ahead of Lahaina.
Following many discussions of the
relative sailing qualities of the bar
kentine Puako and the barkentine La
haina. mingled with the boasts of the
skipper of each that he will make
Australian waters first, the fact the
Puako towed to sea at 10 o'clock yes
terday and the Lahaina was assisted
outside the heads at 12:30 o'clock
prompted interest on the waterfront.
The Pual-.o goes to Melbourne and the
Lahaina to Sydney, and wagers have
been placed on the run.
The big British bark Lord Temple
town, which is working lumber at the
Clark. & Wilson mill for Australia,

PAXA5IA RAILROAD LACKS CARS
Cargo Could Xot Be Transferred
Across Isthmns Rapidly Xow.
Captain Anderson, of the American
Hawaiian liner Honolulan, which went
from here to Puget Sound a few days
ago to load additional cargo for New
York, was in the city on business yes
terday. He says that he does not re
gard the railroad facilities along the
Panama Canal as sufficient to care for
the vast amount of cargo waiting there
on detained ships, because some of the
equipment originally used has been
snipped to the Alaska Engineering
commission and to other projects.
Referring to the Tehuantepec Route,
formerly used by the American-Hawaiian
in advance of the opening of
the canal, he says boxcars that were in
use those days are now In service for
the transportation of the Mexican
armies ' and . the fighters regard
some of them as palace cars in these
times. As to conditions at the Pacific
side of the Tehuantepec railroad, he
says even some of the floating, equip
ment is used for the transportation of
troops, for on his last voyage he passed
a tug towing two hopper barges filled
ftim troops and tho skipper of the tug
gave him a whistle salute. He wondered
what the troops would do if someone
carelessly started the gear to open the
MORE TIE BUSINESS IS UP
Portland Mulls to Turn Out Part
Cargo for Early Shipment.
In lumber circles yesterday there was
talk of two or three orders for ties and
timbers for United Kingdom delivery
being in sight. -Arh order has been placed
for a part cargo here, amounting to
about 45.000 ties, and it is said .that a
vessel wm come the latter part of the
month from the south to load them.
One of two steamers listed for Hum

tramp Rio Pirahy was on the way there
from New Orleans and is said to be held

Corfu, from St. Ijicia. No information
has arrived dealing with what action
the British Admiralty may take re
specting steam tonnage held at the
canal that was bound here to load ties
and timbers for the United Kingdom.
Unless the date of opening is delayed it
is assumed they will wait, but if the
waterway is to be closed for a longer
period, they probably will be sent via
the Straits of Magellan, as it Is not
doubted they can be sent back through

Mariposa Hits Rocks Off
British Columbia Coast.
PASSENGERS PUT ON BEACH
Another Vc&sol , Later Picks Them
Vp; Part of Cargo, En Route to
Alaskan Railroad Builders.
Likely to Be Salvaged.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Oct. S. The steam
ship Mariposa, of the Alaska. Steamship
Company's fleet, which went on the
rocks on Pointer Island, near Bella
Bella, li. C, early today, is in a dan
gerous position, according to word re
ceived by her owners tonight. The
Mariposa's hold and engine-room are
full of water and the vessel has a bad
list to starboard and has a big hole
in her forward bottom.
No -details of how the Mariposa hap
pened to strike the rocks have been
received, owing to the Canadian cen
sorship imposed upon British Columbia
wireless stations, but company officials
presume that Captain C. J. O'Brien lost
his bearings In a fog.
Tho Mariposa's 79 passengers, en
route from Seattle to Alaska points,
were landed on the beach by the steam
er's sjnall boats soon after the ship
struck. A short time later they were
picked up by the steamer Despatch,
which answered the Mariposa's "S. O.
S." call. .
The Despatch is proceeding to Ket
chikan, where the passengers will
await the arrival of the Admiral liner
Admiral Evans, which will take them
to their destinations.
Two salvage vessels were dispatched
from Victoria, B. C.. tonight, in re
sponse to a hurry call from Captain
O'Brien, who said much of the cargo
could be saved if prompt action was
taken. A large part of the 1200 tons
of freight aboard the Mariposa consist
ed of Government supplies for the
Alaska railroad builders at Anchorage.
i niny-rour members of the Mari
posa's crew are being brought to Se
attle by the fishing steamer Starr. The
rest of the crew is standing by the
wreck to assist in salvage operations.

Let the Journal answer why it is
now against opening- the timbered
railroad lands to actual settlers?
If these lands are "unfit lor settle

road was refusing to sell to settlers?
Does not the Journal know that in
preaching the doctrine that these
lands are "unfit for settlement" it ia
offering a complete defense for the
railroad company's past action? Very
sincerely. A. W. LAFFERTY.
