Braves Field, BoBston, Mass., Oct. 9. Boston's Red
Sox took the second game of the world's series from the
Brooklyn Dodgers here this afternoon in the longest and
i one of the most sensational struggles of the historic
title tilt.
For fourteen innings the teams battled tooth and nail.
In the stands more than 41,000 men and women alternate

Scott came in on Ruth's infield out. It was growing dusk

London, Oct. 9. Possible disagree

Great Britain as to the German U-boat
depredations off the American coast,
was forecast by the Daily Chronicle
Counter measures taken by the allies
will hamper American trade and also
make it "unhealthy" for American sub
marines off the-coast of the United
States, the newspaper asserted.
"The United States disagreed with
us whea it admitted the Deutschlaud,
but the disagreement is much sharper
when it admits a pirate craft like the
U-53 and fraught with many more in
conveniences for the United States,"
said the Chronicle. "What is to pre

American coast as a base for preying on
Frenchand British steamers!
"Obviously, it Germany is allowed to

He was aluted to talk with German
Ambassador Von Bernstorff t 2 p. m

conference was arranged some time ago
for the purpose of discussing Polish re

whether the German U-boat had violat

government in the past. But no deter

The deepest anxiety over the ritun

and official comment were withheld in

Boston, Mass., Oct. 0 The trans-Atlantic

Spent Much Time Trying to
Prove It Was Not An Tight
Hour Law
By Perry Arnold
(United Press Btarf correspondent)
Newark, N.' J., ;4t. 9. Candidate
Hughes loosed his heaviest battery of
assault on the Adamson eight hour law
here today in the speech inaugurating
his third campaign trip. Without us
ing names, he ironically paraphrased
"do not run away and dream that you
will have courage in a future day," in
referring to what he said was the demo
cratic " administration's capitulation"
and "humiliating surrender to duress"
It was the republican nominee's
most careful analysis of the democratic
settlement of the railroad strike which
in previous speeches he has dubbed
"the paramount" issue of the cam
paign. He went into great detail to
declare that the bill was not an eight
hour measure, but merely "a mere in
crease of wages by fixing a different
basis for calculating wages," He read
letters dated far back ss July 29, 191(1,
to controvert the democratic claim that
the crisis in tiie railroad situation- was
a "sudden" one the letters being
from the chamber of commerce of tho
United Stutes urging an inquiry. Ho
quoted Senator Underwood as admit
ting on tho senate floor that "the
question is a question of vage; that
they nro not contending for an eight
hour day; that a man shall work only
eight hours; they do not want that."
"Service over eight hours," Hughes
added,' "is not prohibited. It is not
penalized . on the contrary, such
work is evidently contemplated. The
railroad runs must be completed in any
en and under this bill, all service
over eight hours is simply to be paid for
pro-ruta. It is therefore wholly mis
leading! to rcier to mis uui us
hour bill. What is the purpose of
this attempt to make the public believe
that this bill fixes an eight hour work
day! Manifestly, in order io endeavor
to justiry tins exirnorumurjr m-w'ii
thn wl.n'iniittrntion iii its.abiect and
humilinting surrender of principle in
ilnniiiniliiiir nud securing this legisla
tion without any proper authority, as
the price of peace."
