'Tho best team did not win; there is little doubt on that score. On the play as a whole the men of had a decided edge on upon their opponents and with any kind of n break iu the luck would have won Irithout question. Mathewson deser- ved victory In each of the three games that he pitched, but he was unfor- tunate enough to have hluuders made behind him at critical moments which helped materially in bringing about his downfall. In the tie game, for instance. Speaker was enabled to make tho circuit ot the bases on a Itlt that at the best was only good for throa times. He should have heen easy out at the plate, but Wilson, had succeeded Meyers behind the hat, was shaky and nervous and dropped an easy thvow at the plate. Speaker would have teen out by ten feet, but for this unfortunate miss- chance and as it was he waa lucky to scramble Imck to the rubber he- fcro "Wilson who was dsaJ on the play recover the rolling sphere.

[His perfect mastery of the ball was the strong suit, and though he issued more passes than is uaaul fcr him, it was done in Uiree of the four cases intent. He tried to 'work the batsmen to hit at hard halls, but they refused to bite. Wood and Maniuard have been generally acclaimed the heroos of the series, but when all is said the real honor belongs to the "Peerless One." Matty Deserved Victory As I have before pointed out, New Tork should have won the final game, and with It the world's championship inside the regulation period. The should have heen I to 0, instead of 1 to 1 at the end of the ninth. The count which Boston made in the sev- enth, which allowed them to tie the score, was the veriest kind of fluke. It was scored In this manner: Stahl shot a short fly to left, which Fletcher etarteu back after and stopped.
