Chicago, Oct. was to- day eliminated from the National Leagu? pennant' race when Chicago scored a 5 to 2 victory before a crowd declared to have been the largest that ever paid to see a game of baseball in the world.. It is said that there 30247 paid admissions. Today's game was final -of the season for Chi- cago and Pittsburg, while New York has three more to play 'with Boston. If one of the games is not played by reason of the weather or for causes, or if Boston wins one, the 'pennant will go to Chicago for the third time. By winning all three New York will exactly equal Chicago's percentage of .641. Tonight Chicagc" leads the 1.'ague with Pittsburg is second with .636, and New York which did. not. play, third with .633. The constitution of the National League provides that a series of thrct games shall be-played to decide a tie race for th? .pennant, but leave the place where it shall be played for th Board of Directors to decide. Tin- board will meet at. Cincinnati tomor- row to take action on the game ir dispute which was decided a tie b twec-n New York.and Chicago, and il -is-said it may take time by the fore lock and at the same meeting settle a place for the deciding s ries provid- ing New York wins all deciding game? with Boston. Chicago, Oct. defeated Detroit 3 to 1 in the opening game of the" final series here today, which makes it possible for local .team to win the American pennant. To dp this Chicago must win the remaining games from Detroit; while Glevejanc must lose one game to, St. Louis. By reasori1 if the tie' today teams still' have three- games to play. :By winning all of them Cleveland would gain; the pen- nant provided Detroit loses another game to Chicago. By taking one ol the remaining two games' from 'Chi cago Detroit will win in the event that Cleveland drops two to St.-Louis The outcome of today's fore, makes the finish of the Ameri- can League race" narrower and more uncertain than ever. President Co- miskey said the attendance of -the day's game was the. largest that had ever been -within the: South Sid grounds. Chicago's victory was mark ed in that Chicago scared all of hei three, runs in the first without even the semblance of a hit. In fact, Chi cage -made but one hit during thf game. Thi game was a pitchers' bat- tle between White and Killiam. Tly latter held the victors down with one hit, but lost the game as a result o' bases on balls and errors behind him.

The Foreign Minister con- ferred this morning with the Russian Minister of Affairs ittid the Turkish Ambassador. The proclama- tion of the indep ndence of Bulgaria actually has been made, and it will probably be useless to attempt to in- duce Prince Ferdinand to withdraw it. It is known that Bulgarian cav- ilry is molesting on the frontier, and the. Prince has determined to stick to" his guns. Th.' diplomatic repre- sentatives of the powers generally be ,'.ieve that it would spell ruin to tlv, new constitutional rule in Turkey and that the Sultan would use wa as a pretext for withdrawing it. i London, Oct. whicl The Harvest Thanksgiving service- Beaten to change the political fac th?

Bulgaria is said to >a buying up munitions amd horses n an extensive scale. The Bulgar- ans have faith in their army, which las reached a high state of efficiency, ilthough it is perhaps lacking in of icers, and the war for which Bulgaria las long bi'en suspected of preparing for could bs fought with more ad- vantage from, now than when the Turkish .Government had time to re- organize'-its forces, which have be- come enervated by the corruption and neglect of ths old regime. The Emperor of Austria, it is un- derstood, has despatched a letter to the President of France, his intentions regarding Bosnia and Hersegovia, although the contents -of letter are kept secrei, and he is sending similar: notes to the. other powers. It seems that Emperor Francis Joseph, who al ways a scrupulous observer of form, should reveal .his intentions to the rulers of othjx nations before he has communicated them too his )wn Parliament. One explanation is that the letter was not intended for delivery until Tuesday, when identi cal notes would be to the other powers. While Austria's action with regard to the two provinces may not technically be called an ex- action, it is believed it will amount Gets After Senatar Bailey in His Own State. El Paso, Texas, Oct.
