But j when .pressed he had this much to say:' 'ye have clearly earned our way into the serfes and we will clearly earn our Way through It. If believe that we have I ' the better pitching. In fact, 1 do not j know when "a team ever went Into so 'great an event with so strong a s"tring of first-class hurlers. I have six men. -- on any one of whom I can depend for , excellent service. My pitcher for the ' opening game will be Walter Ruether. whose work throughout the season has ' been such that I have no fears for,liiin. We-will have our regular line-up in the field, and the best may be expected of ' the boys. I have always deprecated the i ' handing out of too much credit for this i victory to myself as manager. The team J deserves the lion's share of the credit. for it is -a gr4at ball club which fought Us way through the season without a : sign of faltering, and I think, it. will con- . tinue on its way throughout the series. . The club la in shape and rea3y. We are' 'are going up against a great ball club .'. ,Txit I think we. will hold our own."

I i i Last Practice For Teams. 1 ; v The two great teams took their final i f 'practice yesterday, at the yard. . The I AVhite Sox arrived from Chicago early t .in the morning and took up their quarters . at the Sinton Hotel. At 11 o'clock ilan-ager Gleason herded his men to Redland, Field, which had been put , at his disposal, and the team got a two-hour work-i out. It was merely limbering up labor Vfor the husky Sox and a chance to get! used to the various angles of the field' on which they have not played since ' "Jearly April, when they were here for I two exhibition games previous to the ' .' jstart of the regular season. The out-1 elders wanted to become accustomed to ' the distances they can travel and th-i -play or the suti over the huge grand-' 'stand. Ray Bchalk was out to find out Jhow far he could go for foul balls, at .- .the handling of which he Is an acknowl- " edged expert. Redland Field is much like I a:i.onilskey fark in its main features and - the Box expressed themselves as de- - lighted with the condition of the flaying ' surface as groomed for the big event by 1 Matty 8chwab. After the Sox had had their work-out. Manager Moran led the Reds onto k the green for their final exercise. The vv-boys were like a lot of colts Just let nto.the pasture and they cavorted In the most gleeful and confident manner. Their new world's series suits, made expressly for the'ocasion by a local mflrm. were donned by most of the athletes, though a few refused to put them on. believing that it would be hoodoo to wear them before the big day. The practice was fight, consist-,ing only of batting and some infield - exercise. Kuether and Cicotte. r' After the practice. Manager Moran -anounced that he would use Walter Ruether in the opening game of the -series to-day It had been exnected "that Sallee would get the call, but the ""Red leader prefers to pit' the younger lefthander against the skillful Cicotte. ; Ruether has had a "slight touch of rheumatism in his left arm, butthe hot weather has wormed It out of his wing and he Is in grand condition. Is no doubt that he has given the varied batting styles of the Red hitters plenty of earnest thought- - Ray Schalk will catch him and the two make a worthy battery to face In a world's event. Getting an Early Start. Acording to the-rules of the world's series, the games each day will start at 2 o'clock. Series days are holidays and the bugs are glad to' go out early and imbibe the sporting atmosphere. The gate of Redland Field will bo open at ten o'clock this morning for the accommodation of the holders of un. reserved- tickets to" the pavilions, and bleachers. The umpires who are to officiate are on hand. They arrived yesterday and will report to Chairman HeTrmann, of the National Commission, at 10 o'clock thfti morning for their final Instructions. The Judges of play will be Rig-ler - and Quigley, of the National League, and Evans and Nallin, of the American League. The National Commission will hold a meeting at the Slnton Hotel this morning, at which will be present representatives of both teams, the umpires, the business managers and the official scorers. All details of the games will be determined at this time. In Chicago on Sunday, but onty in case one team wins five straight games. Unless this unlocked for result should come to pass the sixth game will be played here next Monday. Under the world series' rules the teams will remain here until the first two games are played. In case of rain today the opening game will be played to-morrow, and all first-game tickets will be good until such game has been played. After the first two games are decided, the teams will shift location to Comlskey Park, where they will remain until the next thrte games have been decided. In any event the Cincinnati fans will see the first two contests. The series will end as soon as one club has won five games. There has been very little betting on the aeries to date. White Sox money is prevalent, but nearly all of it is offered at evens, or six to five at the best. There are many thousands of dollars in town to bet on the White Sox at even money, but no takers. The Red supporters, while expressing great confidence in 'their team, are demanding seven and eight to five, and this is a little more than the Box speculators care to offer. Not a single wager of any considerable else had been registered up to a late hour last evening. There may be some action to-day. but there will have to be mutual concessions. All day . yesterday Sox money was going begging all over town. 1 power of a dollar 'these days money speaks in whispers. Street car fare Is seven cents per throw, meaning the pas senger must throw one nickel and two coppers in the box. Conductors are not allowed' to . handle the! coin for reasons best known to the .company. Here Is a small dab of sdentfic 'dope that may Interest the fish. : For years It has been conceded that the American League is all of '9 per cent stronger than the National. What the fish do not know is that the American League diamonds are six Inches larger than those of the old league, the idea being to slow the Americans down at bat and make the play look about equal in speed and general efficiency. Having played all their lives on the larger diamonds the Sox naturally will speed .up on the smaller field and simply run away with the Reds. Persons , wise t this dope are plunging heavily In theNtting. Meanwhile the fish are assembling in masses hot, dusty and thirsty. Yalr to middling drinks may be had by talking a water Jump each way, meaning to Across the river into Kentucky. Mind the old story about Thompson's colt? The youth ful equine was supposed to be a sa plead because he swam the river to get a" drink. Well, they are doing it lJre to while away the time. Regular beef la on tap across the river,' and, booze may be had for a price. They have a beverage on this side of the stream which Is said to be gasoline diluted with sheep dip to take off the curse. The Bootleggers' Protective Association of Cincinnati-adopted a resolution compelling members: to wear a badge to prevent tbem from selling boose to each other. It is a benevolent organization, and 'if these steps were not taken to safeguard members the fund would go broke . over night. Experts from far and near were fitted ' out to-day with tickets to both parks. Hon. M. Appleton MacLesn ws'v-1"" n-ie. 1 gate of the Chicago branch of the baseball writers' union, came on this morning' with the pasteboards for Comiskey Park.
