N>w York, Oct. 3.-The Giants yesterday- made their last public appearance on the home grounds before the opening of the world's series here next Tuesday. "The National league champions will cross the river today to Brooklyn to wind up the season in a three game series. The ' only activity on the polo grounds before Tuesday will he an exhibition game between the Giants and the New York .�VmericaJis on Monday for the entertainment of the sailers who are hero with tho vanguard ot the AtlanUc fleet. It is understood that ifanager Mc-Graw and Christy Mathewson, the mainstay of the Giant pitching staff, �will spend the rest of the week in Philadelphia sizing up the Boston Americans whom the Giants meet in the vorld's series. Boston Favored A reporter who canvassed brokerage kouses which have Boston connections Bald that about $30,000 had been wagered at odds o? fire to four on Boston. The Papers' Part The art of combining baseball players with journalism promises to be more highly developed in the forthcoming world series than ever before. Practically all of the star players have been engaged by newspapers to give the public inside information as to just how the games were won or lost. Tesreau, JIathewson, Marquard, Myers, Herzog, and Doyle are conspicuous among those who will turn newspaper reporters after they have finished their days work on the diamond. In addition moi'e than a score of well known baseball players will sit �with the newspaper workers as critics of the game. EASTERN CLUBS HOPE TO CANNOT BEAT ROYALS Joe Lally Voices His Opinion of New] Westminster Lacrosse Team > '> '> '> '> '> men In tJie business. In some respects Devore Is a shade bettor man, more dnng>'roiia on the Vuscs, I believe, and in a long season ;ierh;ips a trifle below Lewis In the batting nvenigcs. Lewis, however, hits much harder, drives home move runs, and with tho hitting power that is behind his bat scores runners even when ho falls to hit safely. Devore will b-ont out more indeld hits and reach first on errors fK'ld has heeu put in the best possible shape. Ttio diamond has boon vo-graded, every i)ebt)le lias be-.^n hand-picked, and he.ivy roIK-rs have been hauled back and fcrth over tho infield and base lines until tho surface is as smooth as a table.

New Westminster Is ti lacrosse idyll.

South Africans Win London, Oct, 3.-Ideal weather prevailed at Bath tcday for the first match of the visiting South African Rugby team against Somerset. The Springboks were not playing their heaviest pack, but the forwards averaged 1S2 pounds. At half time they had scored tett points to Somerset's nil. The final score was: Aricans, 24; Somerset, 3 points. Gives Lewis Shade on Devore lu calculating the .worth ot the two iiwn to t"heir loauv.;, using the Ivasia cf 100 as perfection and sliidylng every deimrtment of the work, 1 have rated Lewis at 64 and Devorrc at �1, so close a maigln that it scarcely counts in tho value of the men In a i=hort series. Tho preference is given I..ewi8 chiefly because of the clean-up character little average like .500, and he ntivor has let up In bin hitting. Dovoro is directly opposllo him lu hitting, He bats left handed and from a sei\il-crouch, pushing well toward left field, bunting cleverly and occasionally pulling one hard ovcv first or toward right Hold, Odd ixa it may seem, I never havo bulloved him as good a batter as his avcriigos have shown. Ho rapped ,'.280 last season and It puzzled mo to discover how ho did It, for when ho Is hitting ho doesn't seem a dangerous batter. This season It seemed to iiio ho stood up to them and hit fast pitching bettor than ho did last season. He Is hard to pitch to, as his crouch is deceiving, and ho draws a lot of passes, due to his smallness. Besides that, he, like all the Giont.s, crowds tiro plate and looks for a chance to got hit by pitched balls. Devohe Fast on tho Bates Once on lirst base Devore becomes mo'fo formidable. Ho runs the bases with great speed, although ho does not start as well as ho should to get Into tho class of Cobb, or Mllnu, or Speaker as a runner. Ho goes fast, and Is a tricky and clever slider, and almost as hard to touch as Milan, with the added knack of holding the bag after his slide. in the base running end of the game he Is far superior to Lewis, who lacks his speed, and who does not run tho bases with much frenuency. Lewis is of his hiiting, which it has bc�n seen ! a harder slider, but can not tlirow his so often counts largely lu the world's scries, especially when the crowds en- croach upon the field, as thoy will in Boston. iiosides this, tin-, left field wall in the Hriish stadium olTors him a magnificent target and he ;ii;\y drive one or two balls ricochetting off that wall that would be caught on many American League grounds. He hits terrifl-caliy towards left field, and from an analysis of tho Xew \'or\i pitching I doubt whether any man on the list, with the possible exception of Tesreau can stop Lewis. Lewis Is Young and a Hustler . Lewis is young, a hustler, and he has hit along about the ,',i00 mark ever since he broke in with Boston, body away with tho skill of his smaller and speedier opponent. In running on hits, however, Lewis is almost his et|ual; that Is, ho takes two bases on a hit almost as fretiuent-ly as Milan does, possibly due to the better hitting system ot tho Boston club, I have seen Devore again and again, flat footed when a hit was made, lose all tho advantage his spee ? -: ? ? �: ; WINNIF>EG GETTING > s0jv1e , GOOD BOUTS : e -J- Winnipeg Is betoming (luite : a stamping ground for the top-: notch pugilists.

Back In the dim past wo placed ono hoiw and oUr flheUcIs on annUier Jeff, but some ono turned off tho limelight. And history has a disagreeable habit of repuaUng Itself,- Chicago Exa-minei'. Outfielder Jack Murray, of the Giants, is a bright example of what pluck and determination will do in the face of adverse hostility. Murray is today ono ot the Idols of the Polo grounds. He is hy far tho best cut-fielder on his team and one of tho very most valuable men 'working for j -McGraw. At the beginning of the j present season Red Jack was a dead � ono In the eslimatloii of the bugs, j Tho enthusiasts were riding his nock, I roughshod, crying lustily for his ! scalp. And all becaUBO the fiery I thatched right gardener had fallen down In tho wt)rld's series with the Athletics. In the lamentable world's series of last fall Murray was little wcrse than any ot his follows. In fact, if the Giants had won out ho �vN'ould have been accorded a big hero. Bivt defeat vjAs ombitlv^red by tho thought that Alurray had failed to get a uiiiglo hit In tho six games plfayed. Ho didn't fall to make an error and that's where the rub camt; in. To make It worse for Red Jack, he -was up any number of times in the i)lnch; that brought out his sticking weakness all the stronger. It was freely hinted after tho world's Bories that McOraw would cut adrift from ftlurray and, Indeed, Jack lilniBolf ?X))octod the nxo oven after tho club assembled for spring prac-tico at Marlln. InstC'ttd of sulking, however, ho got out and hustled all Marty Calls Giants Marty O'Toole, the $'22,000 pitcher of ithe Pirates, 8a.vfl: "I've never soon the Boston Rod Sox play outside of their (raining camp, but any team that heats tho Giants must be a wonderful ono. New York has an oxcellont pitching sta.ft for Uw contesta." the harder against the youngsters who were trying to break into his preserves. It McGraw had entertained any idea of' sacrlQcIng "Red" the notion was soon lost. Murray proved one of the besit men right from tiie start ot the year. It is doubtful if there Is any better thrower than Jack in organized baseball. The .\merlcan league has some wonders-Hooper, Speaker and Lewis ot tho Red Sox have deadly arms one and ail; Ty Cobb Is possessed of a good v/ing, and so is Joe Birmingham of the Naps. Maybe some ot these can return the ball to the plate from a deep field as nulckly as Red Jack, but not ono of them will make as many accurate pegs in 10 trials. His deadly accuracy has made Murray the terror of all opposing base runners. Even, fast men hesitate about going from first to third on a hW-and-run play If the necessary bin-gle goes Into Murray's yard. Still fewer will attempt to score from second on a hit to right, while a sncri-flee fiy to Jack's territory has to be about twice as' long as to any other section of the pasture. The uncanny oocurncy of .Murray's wing is respou-Bible for this. He can whistle the ball with rifle buUot velocity from almost any part of his playing territory right to tho plate more than nine limes out ot ton. This Murray has proven to the fiatisfactlon of all his oppononts, and now they give him a 'wide 'berth. GAMES IN THE BIG LEAGUES National Giants Again go Down New York, Oct, 2.-In their last National league contest at the Polo grounds this reason. New York was again defeated by Philadelphia by a score of 2 to 1. The game came to a sensational close. The champions filled the bases with one out in the 9th when Crandall who was batting for Wlltse, hit a drive over Dodges' head. The youngster jumped In the air and made a neat one-handed catch and then doubled Myoia oft first. Seatou was wild, but effective while Killiter threw out five New York players trying to steal. Knabo was spiked by Burns in the first inni'ng and had to retire from the game. Cotter's Hittlna Won Chicago, Oct. 2.-Dick Cotter's two singles, one in tho ninth and tho other in tho tenth enabled Chicago to win the final game of the series toda.y (i to u. Schulte's thlrteeath home run tied the score In the �aixib but Wilson's homer gave the visitors the lead in the eighth. With bases full in the tenth and two out, Cotter singled, scoring SchuUe with the winning run. Boston Beat Brooklyn Boston, Mass., Oct. 2.-Boston defeated Brooklyn i'n two close games this afternoon. The firat by a score of three to two and the second by seven to 'Six. American Naps Beat St. Louis St. Louis, Oct. 2.-Cleveland woti the opening game of the farewell series with St. Louis this afternoon by a score 4 to 2, by bunching hits oft Allison with errors by his team mntea In the eighth Inning. In the country, but his spryness And aulok Blnrtlng after fly balls helps a lot. He chasoa balls with great speed and Is valuable lu holding runners at second on hits Mgalnsl the concrete wall behind him. Lewis, It seems to mo, does not cover toward the foul lino on ground hulls as 'well HB Devore, and ho ought, to study tho formation ot the front of tho Polo ground stauds to see how balls hit fair then crossing onto foul ground, shoot around those walls. Devore heads thorn off for two base hits while u stranger may let them go for three or even four bases. Lewis la ono of tho greatest throwers In tho American League, possessing terrific power and great accuracy. D-avcro throws fairly well, but lacks tho speed and drive ot his opponent. The Frank Baker of 1912! ' if you called upon mo now to pick the fellow who is likely to be tho Frank Baker ot the coming series I would mention Lewis, If he connects solidly with ono of Tesslc's fast ones tho ball won't atoii^ short of Symphony hall.
