Shibe Park, Philadelpliia, Oct. 10.
In one of the most remarkable games
In th history of world's fories, the
Boston Braves Took their second Ban. a
from the Athletics this afternoon.
Their victory was due to the mas
terly pitching of Bill James. He hell
the plugging .Mackian forces to two
hits, disposed of them in order up to
the ninth inning, and with four men
facing him in the. ninth, only 2S men
took ' their places before him at the
plat e.
Kcldie Plank, the Gettysburg veteran,
opposing James, pitched almost as bril
liantly. Plank was touched for seven
hits but he kept them widely scattered.
It was Peal, the Braves' substitute
third baseman, who, delivered the blow
which really worked Plank's undoing.
Five times previously during the two
games Deal had opportunities to drive
in Boston runs but failed ingloriously.
Wo Longer WeaJtest Spot.
He was regarded as the weaiost
spot In the Braves' line-up. "With one
out in the ninth, Oeal'drove a double
to deep renter. He then stole third
and scored on Mann's single. Thia
hit was another tribute to the strate
gy of Stallings, the miracle man. Fol
lowing his usual srheme of switching
his outfield for a left handed pitcher,
Mailings sent Mann to right field in
place of Moran.
Hln move w;fs vindicated when Mann
delivered the swat that drove In the
winning run. The extent to which th;
Athletic batters have been at tho
mercy of the Braves' pitchers was
shown by the fact that they huve made
even hits in two days. Hehan.q;
doubled in the sixth Inning1 today, but
was immediately .out attempting to
steal third. Collins beat out an In
field hit to Kvers, which represents
the entire efforts of the heretofore
dreaded Mack artillery at the bat.
It appeared for a moment in the
ninth inning today that James was
weakening after the masterful way in
which he had handled the Athletics.
He walked Barry. This whs his sec
ond base on balls of the 'game, as he
had passed Murphy, the first man up
in the initial inning. After Schang
fantied, Walsh also was walked, but a
double play eliminated any chance of
me Athletics tieing up the score.
James whiffed eight of the Athletics'
sluggers, putting Mclnnes, Strunk,
Oldrin- and Schang on his list. Mc
lnnes and Strunk fanned twice, and
Oldring's fanning was his third of
the series.
James Whiffed Every Tim.
Plank struck out ssix men. James,
his opponent in this great pitcher's
baUle, struck out every time he came
to" the plate. Plank gave four bases
on halls and it appeared for a time
in the sixth inning that he was about
to blow th game. He hit Schmidt
with a slow one. "Butch" was not per
mitted to take lis base and then flied
to Murphy for the second out. Gowdy
then walked, Plank apparently having
lost control completely. He hit Mar
anville and there were two men on
bases. Deal again failed to come
through, however, and forced Gowdy
at third. '
One of the most remarkable plays
' of the game was pulled off by Barry
and Mclnnes in the eighth inning
Cathers hit a wicked roller straight
toward second, which Barry came in
for, stabbed JLt and,, by a lightning
like throw, shot It to Mclnnes. It was

Mexico City, Oct. 10 To the gen
erally confused state of affairs in the
Mexican capital there was added the
lurtner complication today ot a prac
tically complete tieup of transporta- !
tion as a result of the cabmen's and
street railroad employes' strike.
At such a time, a struggle of this
sort was looked on as especially dan
gerous and the local authorities were
watching thev situation closely. The
strikers want 100 per cent more pay,
an eight hour , day and union recogni
tion. The suggestion made at the Aguas
Calientes conference between Villista
and Carranzista representatives, of a
commission form of government until
order and constitutionalism can be re
stored was generally regarded favor
ably here.

mutinous constitutionists shot Major

Respue Baby From
Bullet Swept Road
Petrograd, Sept. 23. (By mall
to New Yorkl The rescue of
an 18 months old baby girl,
crawling in a village street
which was being swept by
shrapnel fire, has won for three
Russian artillerymen the cross
of St. George, conferred on
them by the czar.
A Russian battery was retir
ing near Iemberg when one of
the gunners saw the baby
crawling from the doorway of
one of the houses right tn front
of the guns. Without hesitat
ing a moment he dismounted
and rushed to pick up the
child, which was crowing with
delight at the sight of the gaU
loping horses.
Just as the gunner reached
the Infant a shell burst over
head. The Russian threw him
self on the gTound and shielded
the little one with his own
body. A fragment of the shell
struck him in the spine and
prevented him arising. Two
of his comrades sprang to his
assistance and arried , him,
with his little protege, to the
battery amidst a storm of Aus
