TIME FbR TEA London broundkeeper Pulled New One on Ballplayers. to play this afternoon the first Boston game of the world series. In spite of the intense rivalry, the pla.v-ers of the two teams were a unit in declaring that they would back up to the limit the joint committee which they appointed on the train cotfflng from Chicago, to demand of the baseball commission the fuKilmeivt of the guarantee which thej- assert was given ,of the pa.vment of $2000 to each player on the winning team and ?lt;00 to each loser. They were informed yesterday that the receipts from tickets were proving so small this year that their shares would be cut to ?L200 and ISOO respectively.' The bo.x selections were still in doubt early this morning. ' There were some indications, however, that Boston fans would be given an opportunity to see their great favorite, "Babe" Ruth, try to pitch his team to another victory and that the Red Sox would have their first chance in this series to display their prowess against a right-handed pitcher, Claude Hendrix. Other predictions, however, favored George Tyler as the Chicago choice for pitcher. The probable batting order!' Chicago-Flack rt, Hollocher ss, Mann. If, Paskert cf, Merkle lb.
