At the first exchange of bullets yjohn son. one of the nerviest deputies on Sheriff Minto's force, was hit. He was placed In an automobile that had been used in the man hunt and taken to In dependence, where he Is in charge of physicians. His wound is serious, but it is believed his leg can be saved. The bullet that hit him was from a JO-callber Luger rifle stolen from Guard Hirtxel. The news of the battle soon spread. In a short time a posse of from 50 to 75 farmers Joined the officers and circled about the spot where-the fight had taken place. The outlaws retired to the brush and tried to keep out of sight, while the posse disposed itself Ih such a way as to shut off their escape. tsix or eight more deputies were loaded Into two automobiles and at 9 o'clock the reinforcements left Salem. Among the officers were Sheriff Minto and Chief of Police Gibscn. - Ammunition la Short. Fears are expressed that the des perate men will elude the posse during the night and break Into a house or store in the vicinity and secure a sup ply of arms and ammunition. About 30 to 40 shots were exchanged and it Is known the convicts are short of ammunition, for they had only about 15 rounds when they left last night. Johnson, the injured deputy, played a star part in the capture last Winter of Homer Black, a. highwayman .who held up and shot Dr. Kobertson In this city. He was also indefatigable in the chase for young Mevers and has never shirked any assignment where there ( was a prospect of danger and excite ment. With the enlarged posse close on the trail of the outlaws their capture Is expected to be made before morning, ! but It is feared another battle may ' have to be fought first.

"My husband needed a drubbing aw ful badly," said she. "and I want to meet the man that did the Job. Schneider was led forward for her admiring inspection. "Why." Mrs. Guy exclaimed, "you aren't hurt at all. My husband told me he blacked both your eyes. "Only two blows were struck, and I was fortunate enough to get those in first." Schneider said, with pardonable pride. "I'm mighty glad of It though I wish you'd given him a few more. He's been needing this beating for months. I knew some one would do it. He's the most abusive man in seven counties, and the only reason he don't get a beat ing every day Is because I'm not big and strong enough to give it to him." Guy was thrashed for getting into his "home" mood while In the Clerk's office. Because he was asked to wait his turn for a duplicate hunter's license, he began abusing Schneider, . who ac cepted an Invitation to come from be hind his desk. Guy swung at the deputy but missed, and Schneider landed two quick blows that sufficed to end the bout then and there.

The long expected meeting between President Taft and President Dias of the Republic of Mexico occurred here today. Outwardly it was attended with a display of sol diery, a flare of trumpets, a boom of cannon and a pomp of ceremony sug gesting supreme authority, but in the actual handclasp of the two executives and in the exchange of courteous words that passed from Hp to Hp. there was simple but cordial Informality..- President Taft was the first to speak. He assured President Dias of his warm personal regard. President Dlas assured President Taft of his high esteem of the American who had accomplished so much In the Philippines, In Cuba and else where, and who had now the honor to be the Chief Executive of so great a Na tion as the United States. . Typify Strength of Bonds. President Taft, in simple. American fashion, declared he was glad to 'meet President Diaz. He was glad to know the President of such a. great nation; canedallv aiad to know the President who -had-made the nation great. Both Presi dents dwelt upon the ordlallty oi me relations existing between the United States and Mexico. President Taft de clared that today's "meeting was not necessary to make stronger the bonds of friendship; it merely typified the strength of the bonds as they already exist. Less than a score of persons were permitted to witness the meeting of the two execu tives. - i 1 Later President Taft and President Dlax withdrew into an inner room of the , Chamber of Commerce Building, where the historic meeting occurred and where they were attended only by Governor Creel of the State of Chihua hua, ex-Ambassador to the United States.- who acted as Interpreter. Gorgeous Banquet at Juarez. The scene of the day's ceremonies shifted from time . to time from the thriving little American ,clty across -the shallow, wandering Rio Grande to the typical little Mexican settlement- of Cludad Juarez. In the customs house there President Diaz received a return call from President Taft, and again late In the evening entertained the Ameri can President and a large dinner party at a state banquet, which, In all its surroundings of lavish decoration, of brilliant color, of wealth - of silver plate handed down from the time of the Emperor Maximilian, probably was the most memorable feast ever served on the American continent. . It was at this banquet that the more formal and public expressions of re gard between the two executives as the representatives of the people of the United States and of Mexico were ex changed. The banquet, also marked the end of the "day of international pageantry a day of cloudless skies." Boy Stabbed In Crowd. . The day was marred by but one un 'toward Incident. A lad of 15 years was stabbed to death by a school companion just as President Taft was stepping from his special train upon Its arrival in the center of the city at 9:30 o'clock this morning. The boys were in the crush of people gathered in the plaza and. In . pushing forward to catch a glimpse of the President, became In volved in a fight. Noll Morgan, aged (Concluded on Page 2.)

DETROIT PITCHERS WILD Donovan Allows Passes and Hits Galore and Mtillin Proves Easy. Byrne Sprains Ankle and Is Carried From the Field. DETROIT. Mich.. Oct. 16. Pittsburg won the world's baseball championship at Bennett Park today by defeating De troit by 'the overwhelming score' of 8 to 0 in the seventh and decisive game of one of the greatest battles ever fought for the world's title. This gives the National League cham pions the victory by "the count of four games to three. It is the third succes sive defeat of the American League champions in the world's series, and consequently'the third straight victory for the National-League, the Chicago team having defeated Detroit In 1907 and In 1908. Adams Eclipses Other Stars. To Charles Adams, the phenomenal young pitcher from . the Louisville American Association team, belongs the lion's share of the credit for the vic tory, and his wonderful pitching has crowded Wagner, Leach, Clarke and the other Pittsburg stars into the back ground. Today's victory was the third of the series and he held Detroit safely throughout the game. He allowed but six hits, and in only one inning the fourth did Detroit get more than one safety; '- Adams allowed only one base on balls, and in four Innings he re tired the hard-hitting American Leaguers In one, two,-v three order. Crowd Proves Disappointing. The crowd was a distinct disappoint ment, as there were only 17,562 paid admissions. It was expected that the game would break all local attendance records, because of Its Importance. The receipts were $10,(77 and this was di vided $1967,70 to the National Com mission arid $8854.65 to ' each club owner. This brings the total attendance for the seven games up to 145,444, and the total receipts to $188,302.50. The weather was far from ideal, but was better than that which prevailed for the other three games played here. The thermometer was close to 50 degrees above zero and not too cold for the spec tators or for the players. Detroit Pitchers Fail." The two twirlers upon whom Detroit had pinned its faith in winning the great series were lacking when the critical time came. "Wild Bill" Donovan IJyed up to his nickname by passing six bat ters and hitting another in the first two Innings. While this lack of control al lowed Pittsburg to score only two runs it had a bad effect on the Detroit defense and Pittsburg scored often after that. Donovan let in a two-bagger and a single in the third, but a snapply double play stopped Pittsburg from scoring. George MuIIln was sent in to bat for Donovan In the third inning and took up the pitching after that. The Detroit man was unequal to the task of pitching four games of the seven, and was easy for the Pittsburg batters after Donovan Tlad given them their start. Mullin was hit hard In the fourth and sixth and Pitts burg soon piled up a commanding lead. - Americans Lose Courage. The play was fierce in the early in nings, but Detroit grew discouraged as Inning after inning went by and it could not score on Adams,-while Muilln was helpless in holding the National League champions.

The final moments of the Fair were as dramatic as Its beginning on June 1,, when 40,000 people gathered at the nat ural amphitheater and waited for Presi dent Taft's signal. The last day had been devoted to saying good-bye. The sun shone bright, the flowers were never more beautiful and the whole Exposition looked as new and fresh as on the dby of the opening.

As expositions go the A-Y-P has been a financial success. Every dollar of in debtedness has been paid and there will probably be a small dividend for the stockholders. The Exposition issued $350,000 In bonds and contracted an in debtedness in addition of about the same amount. The stock subscriptions aggre gated $625,000. In comparing the financial results with those of other expositions, there are nu merous factors to be considered. Omaha, for instance, was unable to contract any direct Indebtedness aside from the bond issue.
