Alpine, Texas, Sept. 14. Hurry ,T.

during the' night to faeo two iudict

New York, Sept. 14. After being
booted from pillar to post, wrecked as
a machine thnt had battled in world's
series and then rebuilt, the New York
Giants Htnnd today the most dangerous
team in the National league.
Manager McGraw and the New York
fans claim this, and seven other mali
ngers in the Tenor circuit ndmit it. The
rejuvenation of the Giants hna been
complete. They won their eighth
straight game when they took a double
header from the Reds yesterday.
There me no pennant hopes around
the Polo grounds for this year, but
wntch out for 1917. The "next year"
cry is an old one, but it looks like it
means something coming from McGruw.
In the meantime, ton, the Giants are go
ing to make things mighty uncomfor
table for the teams they meet during
the remainder of the present season.
Slowly but surely, McGraw complete
ly tore down the imtchine with which he
achieved some of his greatest triumphs
aud with few of his veterans remaining,
built a new cue about them. Of tho in
field with which he started the 1910
rnce, only Fletcher remnins at shortstop.
"Buck" Herzog brought pep bock with
him. I.nrry Doyle has given way to
Heine Zimmerman. Fred Merkle has
departed and n youngster Walter
Holke is at first, the idol of Giant
funs. He looks like a second Hnubert
or Chase.
Of the old field, which went through
the Inst world's series in which the
Giants appeared, only Hums remnins.
lSennie Kuuff and Dave Kidiertson look
after the other gardens, both pounding
the bnll and fielding and throning in
clean, impressive style.
Of the pitching staff Hatty has de
parted. Marqunrd ami Meyers, n fa
mous world series battery, went to
Brooklyn last year. McGraw sttll holds
Tesreau, but his rising pitchers are
Ferdie Schupp, a young left bander he
has worked for yenrs, Fred Anderson
and Georgo Smith, liube Benton and
Pol Perritt, tried veterans on other
tennis, are working well under McGraw.
Behind the bat Bill Rariden is taking
care of the heavy work.
With these prospects there seems to
be little basis for the talk of McGraw
retiring next year. He styled such ru
mors ns foolish today and John B. Fos
ter, secretary of the club, laughed at
the prospect of Mcliraw's going.
"His contract has another year to
run," said Foster, "and we're not
worrying. We expect McGraw to Bign
whenever we are ready."
While McGraw 'a men were downing
the Reds twice yesterday the National
league race was tightening ngffin when
the Hraves whipped Chicago twice and
the Dodgers lost to Pittsburg. The best
the Phillies could do was an even break
with the Cardinals.
Detroit crept up in the Americau
league race to within three points of the
lending Red Sox and Chicago maintain
ed its position close behind the Tigers.

Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 14. Army men
here are. intensely interested today in
the case of Captain David Livingstone
of Company M, Second Washington in
! fantry, who has obtained from the I'ui-
ted States district court a writ of ha-
! I: ens corpus, alleging he is being held
a prisoner at tamp Brown in contra
vention of the articles of war. The
writ is directly against Colonel Wil
liam M. Inglis, in command of the
Washington national guard regiment
and is returnable September 19 at Sent-
The case has developed from charges
and counter chnrges passed between the
; two officers while stationed at Calexico.
According to the petition of Living
stone, a soldier of the regiment desert
ed, while Livingstone was officer of
the day. The guurd was called out and
the deserter captured. On account of
the lateness of the hour, Livingstone
tailed to report. For this Inglis is said
to nave cursed Livingstone in the pres
ence of the troops. Captain Living
stone shortly thereafter wrote to Inglis,
demanding an apology, and then laid his
case nerore the commanding ofticer ot
the western department. Inglis immedi
ately ordered the arrest ot Livingstone,
and he has been in detention since.
Under the articles of war. when
charges are made against an officer or
enlisted man, a hearing must be given
i.i 10 days after the arrest. This argu
ment is used by l.ivingsone in his peti
tion for a writ of habeas corpus, and it
is on this ground that Judge Neterer
granted the writ.
