Great Stir Before the Engagement Teams Nervously Awaited Commencement of BaHle-Ail Players Were Fit and Ready-Preliminary Dope New Y'ork, Oct, 7.-Like two armlea on the eve of a battle, the Giants and Boston Red So.\ slept on their arms tonight, dreaming ot victory tomorrow. They are ready for the hig en-gagenieiit that means for them tame and money. It will be the ninth meeting of the pennant winning teams of the National and American baseball leagues under the present dual organization system, and the winner will break a tie Uint exists between the two leagues. Late reports from the rival camps show that not one regular will be missing from the batting list when the umpire says "Play ball!" for the first struggle of the serifs. The Giants had their final workout at the Polo Grounds this afternoon, their opponents being the Now York Americans, the tail enders of the 1^12 American league race, who won the game, 4 to 2. Russell Ford, star pitcher of the Americans, served - up his puzzling benders to the Nationals. The Giants did not put the full strength into the field, neither Mathewson, 'Marquard nor Tesreau going on the pitching mound. After the fourth Inning few of tho regulars were left, and in the last inning only Herzog remained on tho field. The National champions as they came to bat looked fit for the fray tomorrow. Doyle showed no signs of his recent trouble, and, with the exception of Chief Meyers, who limp�d slightly as he ran out a hit, there were no cases of "charity _ horses" in evidence.

Captain Doyle and other of the National league cham-ipions, Bcattered through the big stands were thousands of sailers and marines from the fleet, also invited to see the game, and a brass band composed of boys, who played patriotic airs between the innings. The Boston Red Sox, with the cheers of their loyal support�rs still ringing in their ears arrived tonight; orders were for early 'retirement, and most ot the men after reaching their hotels went to their rooms and did not leave them. It there were any players among the American league champions AVho were not in condition to play, .Manager .lake Stahl would not admit it, and certainly none of them appeared so. Manager Stahl is so well satisfied with the condition of his men that he will not send them to the American league park tomorrow tor a final light workout. Betting on th� world series dees not appear to be as general ns has been expected. Boston money was to be seen in larger qnantitlos than New York cash, but tho supporters of tho Now Y'ork club, taking iidvantnge of the fact that the Boston team appears to be the favorite in tho betting, are holding out for longer odds. Bets at odds of 10 to 8 were made today, and it is not unlikely that the belling may go to even money. New Yorkers generally pin their faith to John McGraw's three great pitchers, and the base running ability of tho triumphant National leaguers, Boston, with its bard-hitting outfield, expects to reach the pitching ot N�w York's twirlers, and hopes that Wood, Collins and O'Brien will keep the Giants off the bases, and not give th�ni many chances to show their aiblllty on the paths. The Boston rooters point to the steadiness of the team during the season, ajid dp not believe many pt tho players "will blow up" before the vast crowd. Who Will Pitch? The pitchers for the opening game were problematical tonight, \Yhon Manager McOraw was asked whom he would send in tomorrow be only smil ed, ' JIathewEon was the most talke-d about, however. The vetei-an pitcher, Marquard and Tesreau did some warm ing up today, but none gave any Indi cation whether he would face the Bostons tomorrow. If Mathewson goes in first it will be the third time that he has opened a world's aeries tor the New York Nationals, He pitched the opening game against the Philadelphia Athlet ics In 1005, and won 3 to 0; and lie pitched the opening game against the saraeteiuii Jn l9U,>aad-wpii ag�^n_ 2 to 1. � MtithewsdC Incidentally, is fho only regular player on the present New York team, who participated in the Giants first worlds series in 1905, Good weather is in prospect for the opening contest, and it Is expected that the record crowd for a world's series game, 38,281, will be exceeded. bCTHbRIOQE MARKET* Local market prices today show  further" decline due no dmibl; to crop coiiriitioiis.
