:;. (United Press Staff Correspondent)
t Comiskey Park, Chicago, Oct. 6. Cast adrift by the
.A White ''Sox once upon a time because he wouldn't do, Hod
Eller, the burly shineball expert of Pat Mo ran 's Reds took
his revenge today. The fifth game of ihe world series
ler shut out the American league champions by a score
of 5 to 0.' -
He allowed the Sox but three hits and
struck out nine- of them. Six of his
strikeout victims came in succession ii
the second and third innings, one after
another the Sox sluggers stepped to the
plate merely to swing their bats and
retire The 30,008 fans who came to
cheer for o White Sox victory remained
to cheer for Eller throughout one of
the most marvelonsly pitched games in
a world series lijstory.
Only 31 batsmen faced Eller In tho
nine innings. Never after the first in
ning was the big pitcher in danger.
As in the first two games nt Cincin
nati, a one-inning attack put the game
on ice for the Reds. Up to the sixth
round jlittle Claude Williams had pitch
ed uuhittable ball. Eller himself ini
tiated a bruising steam roller attack in
the sixth that sent Williams down to his
second defeat in the scries. Eller 'slcnar
fly dropped between Jackson and Felsch I
for two bases. Eller took a long chance
. and tried for a triple, but Felsch heaved ,
wildly and he was safe at third. Eath

CAR AND ENGINE
COLLIDE TODAY
Superintendent T, L. Billingsly, of the
Salem Street Railway company, is prob
ably fatally injured, and Motorman Wil
liam Lott, night chief at tho car barns,
is suffering severe bruises and cuts
about the face and hands, as a result of
u collision of Lott's car with a freight
engine of the Southern Pacific company
at State and Twelfth streets at 5:25
Monday morning. Motormen Henry
Borsman and Arthur . Williamson, who
were in the streetcar at the time of the
collision, escaped without injury.
Aecording to Inspector waiter Smith,
Of the Salem Street Railway, who rush
ed to the scene of the accident imme
diately after it occurred, and took the
injured men to the Salem hospital, it
seems the cause of the accident was the
dense fog which, prevented Motorman
Lott from seeing the approaching train.
Trouble had developed at the railway
power plant, it is said, and Motorman
Lott took a car and went to the home
of Superintendent Billingsly to bring
him down. On the way he picked up
Motormen Williamson and Borsman.
Approaching Twelfth .street, io:j
made the customary stop, while train
No. 54 of the Southern Pacific passed,
going north. Then, it is believed, that
Lott thinking the right of way clear,
and unable to see the approaching
freight engine through the fog, started
across the tra-ck. The streetcar Btruck
the freight engine in the middle, bend
ing the drive rod and denting the boil
er. Superintendent Billingsly, who was
standing in the front vestibule of the
streetcar with Motorman Lott, was
thrown iu some manner under tho car,
making it necessary to jack the heavy
truck up to get him out. The f rout of
the street car was torn away.
Billingsly was hurried to the bosptta,,
where it was found that his colar bone
was. broken, and that several ribs were
crushed in, impairing his respiration.
Dr. W. H. Byrd, who is treating Billings
ly( reported Monday noon that the su
perintendent's condition was serious,
and that several days will be necessary
to ieii now serious hi-s internal injur
ies are. . He was resting easily at noon.
Lott, who is yet -in a dazed condition,
was cut badlv about the face. After re
ceiving treatment at the hospital, he
was removed to his home.
; Policeman Thompson, who hurried to
tho scene of the collision, made a report
similar to that of Inspector Smith. As
far as it known "there were no witnesses
to the smash.
The freight engine, in a disabled con
dition, was taken to the train yards
where a crew was busy making repairs
Monday morning. ., . ....... .." .....-'
The damaged streetcar waa replaced
on its trucks and taken to the ear barns.
The tracks were not damaged.

Dr. Grayson is not willing to announce

Tp Fair Bandit
New York, Oct. 6. This is the fable
of the beautiful bandit and the styltstt
skirt: .. .. .
Herbert Boyd was chasing his dogs
down the main drag with his kick full of
of kale when a soprano ".hold up your
hands 'smote his tympanum. Behind
the soprano was a business-like gat aud
behind the gat was a dark eyed dam
sel.
Herbert was not a member of . the sui
cide club, so he followed directions. The
dark eyed damsel, aided by two male
Constituents, frisked Herbert for fair
and with it his roll.
Herbert raised a great hue and cry,
arousing tho minions of the law. ,
The-beautiful bandit went away from
there but wa.s hampered below the waist
by tho decree of fashion, which made
her run like a republican in Texas. She
and her entire caste were "hailed to the

thereby aid in. the building of about
five cottages monthly. This, however,
will onry relieve in a small measure,
the. immediate necessity of construct
ing houses, inthis city.
"According to present ! plans ' the
Oregon Pulp and Paper company, the
Phez company and the Kings Products
company will by the first of July next
year employ awout 400 moro men than
ane- now employed. This will directly
and indirectly increase the population
of this evty about three thousand, and
tin order to house these people, it will
require the 'buskhng . of about five
hundred .cottages or. eight hundred
apartments. These men will not be low
wage earners,' but will receive from
four to ten dollars a day, and will be
able to pay a rental sufficient to pay
the .builder of houses a fair return
upon the cost of his investment. A
building program upon this large scale
can only be accomplished by interest
ing men with capital. It can be aided
in a degree by investments in the asso
ciation, and by meetings which will
enthuse citizens to. .individually con
struct dwellings, 'but in the main tho
relief must come from interesting cap
italists. "I would suggest that this organiza
tion appoint a committee of responsi
ble business men to obtain statistics
showing the probaible Increase in our
population that will come by reason of1
our new industries and development of
our county and city. That it obtain the
price for which desirable apartment
houaosites can ibo purchased, and the
public cost of erecting siiitajble houses
and apartments, and. that this data
when collated be presented .to men of
means and financial concerns, with the
idea of inducing them to invost money
in relieving the building situation with
in thte city. My observation has boen,
that capital is not lacking in any .un
dertaking when you can demonstrate
to , men of concerns with money, that
they can make a safe investment and
one which will bring a fair return."

STRIKE ENDED AND
SERVICE RESUMED
By Ed L Keen
(United Press staff correspondent)
London, Oct. 6V British railway
workers were returning to their posts
today after iboth the strikers and the
government had made soncessitfhs yesterday-
which ended this country's
greatest labor walkout.
On many of tho railway lines trains
were in operation early today. In some
quarters fear was expressed that agi
tators might cause further trouble but
there was no evidence of it in London
where the night shifts generally re
ported for work last night. With both
sides claiming victory, tho average
Briton wa concerned chiefly with the
simple fact that a settlement had been
reached.
'Kegnrdless of the partisan claims of
victory, the Briton recognizes general
ly that both sides conceded some points
and granted some compromise. Both
retained enough to "save their faces"
and both were plainly conscious of the
terrible possibiliities involved in a fail
ure to settle the issue.
Under the terms of the settlement;
wages will remain at their present lev-

PREVENT R OTS
DECLARE
The motion to adopt a resolution ask-
ing senate ratification of the peaee trea
ty met much protest and gave rise t
heated discussion of the much dlsenssed
document,
In connection with this, Bishop Hugh
es, presiding said: ,
"Is think it, is wrong for the confer
ence of the Methodist Episcopal church
to urge the ratification of the most in
iquitioua thing in the history of tho
world, I don 't mean the lcaguo of na
tions. I don't mean the treaty with
tho nations with which we hav warred.
I am sure this conference does not want
to underwrite th disgraceful Shantung
affair! '
. K'l would not have it known," Bishop
Hughes continued, "thn,t I presided at
a conference that approver such - a
shameful thing. . And I would not have
it known that I am in favor of a treaty
mado in secrecy, and in favor of at
Oriental nation." -
This gave rise to a demand for a re&o
lution urging disregard to that distaste
ful provision. Someone suggested that
it bo takon up later.
"The Hme to scttlo it is right now,"
replied Bishop Hughes firmly. "And
there is no better place to settle it than
right in the United States senate where
it now lies.' And I'll wager that th
treaty will be ratified, omitting the
Shantung provision, and not affeettnjr,
the sterling qualities of the league of
nations." ,: ,;
' "It is not the place of this confer
ence to take up matters of political Im
portance only," someone in the throng
said. . j' . ' ' "; '"'''.
"This is not a matter of political ex
pediency," Bishop Hughes -eiplamra
with emphasis. f'Thls is a matter of
moral expediency, affecting the Mires,
yes, and souls of 37,000 persons, and this
ehurch could not express itself in
greater matter. "
Continuing, Bishop Hughes declared. .
"This conference, I am sure, will ex
press itself for the league nf . nations.
But we cannot, as ministers of God, ask
the United States senate, or any other
body, to ratify nnv provision that is tn
iquitious, nnd recognized by ill Ameri
cans as iniquitous. " .
