With the'Red Sox a game nearer the championship than the Giants, en- thusiasm'In Boston ran high, and- a. ciovd greater than that v-hich has at- tended either oE -the previcus 1.1 UPS placed heie in prospect. Tha jeemmng of i long line of'Dleach- er fans was formed at the gates last night. It seemed to he the general opin- ion that JIathewson would be Mc- Gr-iw's pitching choice, with Meyers catching, and that Ray Collins, south- paw, would again occupy the Boston pitching box, with Carrigau at the re- ceiving end. These were the batter- ies which started the eleven innings tie game of "Wednesday. There was a little feeling among the Red Sox players today against some of the players and people of New York. It Tvas claimed by the Boston men that Fletcher tried to hurt Cady jumping on him at the plate in the sixth inning ot yesterday's game. Cady "was not. hurt, but his team mates said Fletcher's intention ftvas plain. They had another grievance on ac- count of an assault with stones and dirt made upon Boston players by peo- ple in the street .while on their way from the Polo grounds in automo- biles. "Buck" O'Brien was struck by a stone, but suffered only a slight abrasion of the Other players said they had narrow escapes.

He limped per- ceptibly on the field tcday, and he (has for the past two days, but-aaid he thought he would be to play.

Furth- ermore he has sixteen times secured the prize for the best dog of any breed In the show, and this dog has been fearlessly exhibited before all the' leading judges throughout the British Isles. Deodora Monarch was bred by Mrs. Penfold Field, of Brixton in 1909. His sire was Dick Penfold, and his dam, Baroness Penfold. He is owned by Richard Robbans, of New Yorkv LEADERS DIFFER MUCH IN THEIR CHARACTERS THERE'S! To begin with, McOraw is a bench nmuager, while Stahl will lead his men in person. ilcGrnw always has known as an umpire .baiter nntl liis.teams have been taught to tight for every point and to dispute all close decisions. Stahl seldom has wordE with an. arbiter, and when he does it is because he is strongly convinced of the point in his own mind. McGraw. directs practically .every move on the field. Stahl relies more on the judg- ment his players, general supervision rather than outlining ev- ery play. McGraw. according to his own statement, ia 30 years old. Stahl is 3S- years old. Both have had ex- perience "with, world's champion ag- gregations in the hist decade, Stahl with Boston in 1903 and McGraw With the Giants in 1903. As to the relative effectiveness bench and playing managers, the dis- cussion survive as Ions baseball it self. Whether a man not in the play can see more and bet- ter direct the attack or defense than a man actually in the game, distract- ed' by his own efforts, is a moot ques- tion. If he can, whether this quality offsets the personal leadership, or whether this personal leadership le. Lewis out, Herzog to Merkle.

No runs, -no hits, be counted among the, advocates of bench management. For the sake of proceeding '.viih this story, grant there is no choice between playing and bench managers in tho piesent stance. Then is the '.McGraw type of pru- ttrebsiveness likely to .prove more ef- fective in n world's series than the Stahl (Icliherateiwss? Hardly. The four umpires for the world series arc chosen two each league. They are supposed to bo tho most efficient members of their respective corps. They have absolute power, hacked up by the authority o( the national com- game any player who is unruly or who creates a scene at their expense, jUEt ,s they caii iu Iheir respective lea- rues. These umpires, then, arc less likely tq stand for protracted kicks, tending to -incense partizau cro'wds, than in games of less cousetiuenc-e, because of the importance of the effect upon the already frenzied spectators. On the other hand, becduse of the Import- ance of the series the umpires must i more tact and judgment in the disciplining of players if. that discip- line he removal from th-a game. But if the umpires are not -partizan them- selves there can fte no favor in tile decisions, no matter what he tire amount or the velocity of the kicking. Couiing down to the personality of the men, 'both are taciturn with stran- gers, McGraw the more so, aud both talk freely with their friends. Stahl 1 make a more favorable impression at especially to a west- erner. McGraw always has :heen as- sociated with eastern clubs. Stahl was horu and brought up In the west. Be has an extensive college acquain- tance from his days at the university of Illinois, where he was a football star of the first magnitude. Off the diamond McGraw is inter- ested in a billiard room iu 'New York; Stahl Is vice president of a national bank in Chicago. McGraw's friends are drawn largely from the theatrical world, Wall street brokers and sport- ing men. Stahl through his banking connections, cultivates an acquain- tance in the business world. But personality and one's friends do not count in the crucial days of world's pennant struggle. JOHNSON TO GO- TO AUSTRALIA TO .BATTLE A A A A A LOCAL CURLERS MEET TUESDAY The Lethbridge Curling as- sociation will hold its annual meeting, next Tuesday evening in the city council chambers -at 8 o'clock. All members and those intending to join the club are urgently requested to in attendance promptly on time. A big season's curling is anticipated, and a bigger and better organization than hith- erto .is aimed at.' Talking of New West- ern Canada League With Lethbridge in it 'There is a movement on foot to or- ganize a ne'w Western Cunatla base- ball league for next season. Sam Sav- age, of Calgary, and Frank Gray, of Kdmonton, are heading the movement. Ail eight-club league is proposed with a. nominal salary limit of about the cities to be Lethbrirtge, .Medicine Hat, Calgary and Edmonton, in Al- berta, and Saskatoon, Kegina, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert or Dattleford, in Saskatchewan. The Sporting Editor of the Herald received this intimation from Edmon- ton yesterday. By the way, we might rema'rk, that this is getting down to the Lethbridge contention of this year: that a salary limit was nil that'.was necessary, and all that the cities 'of Western Canada could afford. Qalgai-y and Edmonton stuck out for the limit, Lelhbriilge for ,It came ,to a deadlock, and wasn't'included in the lea- gue this year, failing to come to an agreement in the controversy. The league proved a complete fail- ure. Afte their experience, they, in the north, are apparently now satis- tied lo agree -that what Lethbridge wanted was just about right. Vancouver, Oct. a telegram received late laot night, Tom Andrews, agent for Hugh Mclntoah in America informed the sporting editor of The World that champion Jack .Johnson [ms definitely made up his mind to accept Mclntosh's proposition for two or three tfgnts in. the land ot the Southern Cross, Sain Langford, -Sain MeVey otid possibly Joe Jea-nette be- ing his prospective opponents. Johnson will have a thorough un- derstanding with Mclnto'oh's brother- in-law. C. J. Kelly, wlio is in the states as a- special ambassador of the Aus- tralian promoter to arrange the match when Kelly' returns to Chicago from the east on Monday next, and declares his readiness to sign urticles oC agree- ment and he prepared to sail from Vancouver early in November. Johnson is to receive a sum approx- imating for the trip, in addit- ion to rights in the moving pictures and other side emohnn-ents.

The semicircular erections were spiritually magnificent with their bov- ies of Back Bay 'beauties seated there- on when the organization vulgarly known as the Red Socks transversed the field in a gentlemanly fashion. One player seized the willow where it gave the greatest leverage and struck a graceful attitude. However, he struck nothing else, for he who evolves the sphere now entered into a aeries of remarkable contortions from which the globe finally emerged, describing a -perfect parabola, whose orbit seem- ed unapproachable to the disconcerted scientist. The process being repented thrse consecutive, times, the unfortun- ate athlete retired.
