CHICAGO, Oct.. 11.—Tlie Chicago
Cubs, fighting brill antly to win the
hardest game of the world's series
foil upon Wild Bill Donovan in tho
eighth inning today and won the
second game of tho series in a fierce
assault that gave them tno victory,
to 1-
Defore a big crowd Overal and
Donovan fought out the grandest
pitcher's duel of uny world series,
and whilo the crowd went wild, tliey
reeled oil' inning after inning of perfect pitching. Behind them, the two
teams played grandly. Evers, Tinker, steinfeld, Downs and Cobb making plays thut brought the crowd to
its feot with thunders of upl luuse.
Both teams realized that the game
meant the series. The Tigers had
pinned all their hopes upon Donovan. If Wild Dill with his semi-
civilized curies could stop the Cubs
there still' wus hope that the American Leaguo might reclaim its lost
prestige in the baseball world and
wrest tho proud title, and Cnptaiu
Chanco aud his baseball wonders,
knew that to lose meant a fierce
fight for the hunor, and that to win
meant in all probability they would
win four straight gomes and win thc
world's championship unsullied with
one defeat.
For seven and a half innings the
teams raced side by side, and net
ther could gain an inch. Both Uie
pitchers were giving a wonderful exhibition. Overall, using his terrific
speed, pitching underhand, overhand,
breaking his curves like a Dash over
the outside corner of tlie plate.
Three times in dilferent innings tho
Tigers managed to get men to first
When Donovan entered the pitcher's
box in the eighth. innings liis famous
smile was broader than evor. and
the crowd, that was hoping and pray
ing for.victory for the Cubs, arose
and cheered him with a frantic out
burst of applause, compelled by ad
miration by his great work. And
then suddenly Donovan, the hero
broke, and tho Cubs got him, Tlie
game hud reached its pyschological
crisis and something had to break
and lt was Wild Bill, and with bin
the hopos of Detroit, and the hearts
of the Tigers broko. Hoffman bat
ted a slow grounder to third base
which he bout out, and then Tinker
made himself the hero of Chicago;
with a terrific drive over to right
field fence, 'linker put nn ond to the
doubt und as long as baseball endures thut homo run hit of Tinkers
will remain. Thut settled the gamo
ond In all probability settled Detroit's holies for the championship.
Chicago, Oct. 12.—Chicago and Detroit will meet horo this afternoon,

,iiIutIisii_ Hntc-s on Application.
A slang phrase very much in vogue
in tho old country somo years ago,
wns that "there aro different kinds
of whistling." It was only a new
Betting to one ol Mollors's epigrams
which has taken every variety of
form in literature nnd oven in current speech. For instance, there are
politicians and politicians, and most
assuredly thoro are dillorent kinds of
reporting. The present campaign is
developing an entirely new brand a-
da|*ted to suit tho peculiar conditions of the Liberal canvas. It was
generally concoded, long before lhe
dato of tho election was announced,
that Smith hnd the light of bis life
coming. In every camp and township in the constituency there had
grown up strife and schism as tho
result of Smith's own jwculiur notions. Ho hns not only had to face
nnd to fight strong political opponents, but he has had to pacify, ot.
at all events, to silence a burning
hostility among tho local Liberal associations. It is no wonder then
that his meetings have not beon ov.
erything thnt could have boen de
sirod. It is certainty dosconcsrting,
■to even ns hardy a campaigner ns
Ralph to face mooting after meeting
in which he dared not call'for & test
of strength. It has accordingly
been necessary to cover up the weakness of tho Liberal campaign and to
hide the waning popularity of the
Liberal candidate hy a ne* species
of nowspni>er reporting.
In our last ssue wo called nttentlon to one or two samples for tho
correction of which the majority of
our readers had their own knowledge
of tho facts in question. As a mat-
tor of fnct those accounts cannot
ftrictly be called reports. We havo
seen reports that have -been termed
descriptive, others thnt have beon
called commontntive, and still others
thnt have been dubbed impressionist.
The reports which we nre describing
nro meant to be commentntive in
manner; but in substance thoy are
strictly Impressionist. You como
across hero nnd there a sentence or
two which purport to bo a   verbatim
usual purtiou. So wo are told that
the mysterious "band of eight" which
has followed Smith, appeared "mysteriously from lhe dopths of nowhere. ' What intolerable rut; The
samo eight, we are told, hine boon
present at Nanaimo, Ladysinith—
other pluces uro given, but we need
go no further. Tho "band of eight"
was uut in Ladysmith. Williams
and Hawthorn 111 U'liito were the only
interrupters, but Smith did not euro
to hove the rest of the band counted. What purposo is lo bo served
by such silly inventions is only
known to providence. It is rather
strange, though, that the purty
which claims to bo loaded down with
honesty and integrity, should be such
strangers to truth. Judged bj
their tactics, weighed by their devices, thoir pretensions to honest and
honorable governniont, to competent
imd elllciont' administration aro a
hollow mockery. Surely their ways
aro crooked and dovious, and the
truth is not in them.

been vory badly provoked to so far

Smith has always claimed to be n
clean fighter, and it is at lenst
certain that no combatant has ever
appealed for moro fouls. There has
never been a campaign yet In which
he hasn't complained of tactics of
his opponents, or lodged a iirotest
against tho nbuso ho was receiving.
Of course it Is only ono of Ralph's
little dodges. Thero is not
nor a point in tho gamo of
he will not avail himself nt need
respective of whether it Is allowed or
specifically barred by the, code. For
instance, at this somo wondrous
meeting at Moleskin In which a mysterious "band of oight" sprung into

Smith accuses. Shepherd of boing

Amoy, Oct. 12-Gon. Swoon with
1500 soldlors and two hundred military cadets havo arrived hero from
Foo Chow to tako pnrt In the rocop
tlon to tho American battloshlp Chicago
"oet' Detroit  , 7
were mean onough to tako tho championship w'ith it.
Thoro wore none of theso consider-
utions at work on Sunday. Four to
one wus a good enough score ami
can ,bo lived down. Eight to' one is
simply annihilation and is enough to
drive a club out of a competition.
Howovor,' tho Seattle hoys uro in tho
gamo for the sport. Thoy havo had
no practice, no training this season,
and the gamo on Sunday was utily
their second gamo together. Thoy
will improve and givo a much more
creditnble exhibition bofore tho league is wound up.
It is hardly necessary to add that
they woro nevor in the game on
Saturday. The United forward line
vvasable to do as it pleased and put
In some really pretty work. Still
the Nnnnimo toiun is hardly as
strong as it was last soason. The
half back, lino is none too strong.
CJraham has not yot come to his
bost form, nnd Hewitt is no longer
reliable. A quick turn on Sunduy,
with nu one near him, caused him to
bo carried o(T thc field, and a back
who ploys the rush and dash style
of Paddy is as good as out of the
game onco a joint gives out. Rogers also is developing a habit of
holding lho ball which will get him
into trouble. l'lo tried it against
Vancouver, and was ofton guilty of
it on Sunday and it looked to the
spectator the result of a monetary
loss of verve rather than nny trick
the gatifc or gallery play. Stronger United undoubtedly Is In tho for-
ward line; but thc tonm is wonker In
nil othor respects.
The Free Press gives tho following
nccnunt of tho game:
The Seattle football team came
and law yestorday, hut did not
conquer. They were no match lor
the Nanaimo United at any stage „f
the game. A large good natured
trowd saw the match and while nol
ther side put up any classy ball thoy
seemed to enjoy the game. The Seattle team has been travelling under
hard luck this season. Up to the
present they have been unable to get
any grounds to play on and their
match with Vancouver on Saturday,
when thoy also suffered defeat, was
the first time they even played together. Under the circumstances it
must be admitted they did very well.
The arrangements of the team havo
also beon poorly handled hitherto.
However last week a new. executive
took hold of them and at the present moment they are financed tor the
whole soason and will no doubt have
a strong team before the season is
over. Seattle has hnd a good team
in the past, playing close ond draw
games with Ladysmith and the all-
mainland teams, so despite their
poor showing yesterday, it would not
l>o surprising lo seo them developo
considerable strength.
Judged un their play of yesterday
they have material for a good team.
A little practise and some experience
will do a lot to strengthen the team
and the Seattloites went back this
morning determined to give Nanaimo a harder proposition on the return match.
Of yesterday's gamo littio need be
said. The local boys scored.at will
nnd got In a good practice, which
latter thing they require ln copious
quantities. Roth Vancouver and Ladysmith are going to have strong
teams, the strongest teams thsy
have over put In the field, snd Nanaimo will hnve to do her prettiest
to hold them down. McGuire, lull
back and father confessor to the
Seattle men, was the stellar attraction on the visiting team. He played well and hla constant exhortations to Kelly and the rest of them
to "go into them" waa a foaturo
that caught on with the crowd. A
man with a pair of feet and a voice
like Fathor McGuire Is a tower ol
strength to any team.
It's almost a shame to say it, but
the score was 0-1. Hy the victory
Nanaimo United Is now leading thc
Pacific Coast League.
Chicago, Oct. 12.—Tn the world's

ia s
wrong ostimnte of tbo Canadian nnd
that whon he said he would fight
Johnson in his own time ho meant
exactly what ho snid.
Whon Burns refused tho Bia.oOO
purse offered In England for a bout
with Johnson, tho enemies of the
champion laughed boisterously nnd
said that wns exactly whnt the-- ox-
pectod. And when Burns, still in
quest of gold, hiked to Australia, It
wns declared thnt ho had run away
again from his black Nomosis.
Burn's speedy victories ovor Bill
Squires and Lang, and the accumulation of much more currency,
brought forth derisive laughter from
the Incredulous Johnson boomers
and It wns intltnnled that, Hums
would make a tour of all tho foreign
countries, fighting tho nllegcd champion of ench, nnd postponing the
promised bout with Johnson till
such timo as tho blnck follow hnd become un Inmate of the Homo for
Aged Zulus.
But just nt thnt interesting period
Burns scraped up in Australia exactly the sort of purse he wanted nnd
sent for Johnson to sail.Whilo the
details of tho match nro not yet, at
hand, tho chances are that Burns
will win or draw in a twenty-round
bout. If it. is n longer bout, Burns
doubtlessly will outgame tho nogro
nnd win by a knock-out. In any
ovent, Burns hns shown ho is not
ufruid of tho negro nnd nlso that
whon ho says ho wants a purso of a
certain size he will hnve it, even .'I
ho has to go to Australia I'or it.

An amusing illustration of tlie fact
that gns bills have in reality little

by a suit in the ninth municipal

the destroyed building received from

SORANTON, Pa., Oct. 12.- Tho
convention of mine workers from the
anthracite district of the United
Mine Workers of America began horo
today for tho purpose of formulating demands to be presented to the

almost identical with the award

it is understood thnt they practically agreed. upon the demands that
would he laid before the mine owners. These demands win be placed
before tho convention now in session
for ratification, after which the scfllo
committee wlll deal with the operator*.

mand adjustment whereby claims to
the present agreement was violated
and wages reduced.

fields desire to have an understanding as to what constitutes a car of
