CINCINNATI. Oct. !. An-
other record went by the board
today when the national com-

of the series, exclusive of the

Cincinnati has developed in the brief
period of the series so far a habit of
celebrating the fourth. There is noth

an inning, not a holiday.
The game yesterday was safely
stowed away in the fourth and when
that inning arrived today the fans
emitted a roar in aemana lor an en

really took the demand to himself
apparently waa Claude Williams, the

He passed three batsmen and three
scored. An aviator flew close to tbe

General Bernhardi, the fire-eater,

Unser Tag. He writes:
"England, that hoped, if Germany
was beaten, to obtain commercial
world Supremacy, today sees itself
cheated out of all advantages of the

will yet need Germany so as to be
able-to make a decisive stand against
England. France will become Eng
land's or America's slave, according-
to which side it chooses.
"I cheerfully admit that, momen
tarily, no possibility shows for Ger
many to play a role In the world
again. But misfortune marches fast.
A new political grouping of the pow
ers can give us the possibility to come
up again and once we have the sword
in hand again we shall help ourselves.
Then will come the hour of Germany's
resurrection with the union of all its

in the divergent striving of our
enemies. A common enemy neia mem

make them enemies to one another.
and then, let us hope, we shall have

holding a large part of our nation In

Vote on Fall Amendment Shows
Fate of Measure to Rest In
Hands of Opposition. -
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington. Oct. 2. Reservationists
are in absolute control of the treaty
situation in the senate, the vote on
the Fall amendments showed today.
The fate of the treaty is shown to
rest in their hands. Of the 14 repub
lican votes cast on the first vote to
day 13 are reservationists of varying
degrees, while McCumber of North
Dakota exacts such harmless reserva
tions as virtually to cut him on the
president's side in the fight.
Of the democrats voting against the
Fall amendments there are six to
eight who demand reservations, most
of whom are against the treaty with
out some interpretations. The presi
dent's forces saw today when 30 votes
were rolled up In favor of textual
amendments that they must surren
der to the reservationists or see all
hope lost of saving the treaty at all.
The result was more disappointing to
them than appears, because there
were four republican votes absent
which would have brought the num
ber on the first vote up to 34, or two
more than a third of the vote of the
In the face of the constitutional re
quirement of two-thirds to ratify, this
vote killed the last faint expectation
that the treaty might be approved
without even reservations.
