V. P. Roldon of Ishpornin';, a mem ber of tin commission appointed by Governor Oslnrn to Investigate work Ingmen's compensation ami employers' liability, states tho report of the com mission will be ready fjr presentation to Oovernor ()Fhrrn on Jan. 1. A feature of the report, will bo H Platement prepared by Mr. IJclden on the sueeess of the worklnmen's com pensation plan which has been In force among: the employes of the Cleveland CliffH Iron Co. for more than three years. This great mining corporation employs more than 3,r)0() men in M;r qtiette county. "Our plan has worked out so suc cessfully," says Mr. l?elden, who is general counsel for the company, "that lat year, while we had 3.0 neddents In' the mines, tlu ro was not one miit startel against the company. In cise n man Is killed the widow Is given I'iOo nt once and Is then paid a pension of S 1 2 per month nnd $1 per month for each child. This pension runs on until the children are self-supporting. 'While the plan has only been In op erntion for three years, we have fig ured It out that In case a man Is killed the amount paid will average about J3.000. The family gets every cent of this. Under the old system of at tempting to ndjust claims and lawyers suing under n. contingent fee It was more expensive for the company and at the same time the people who were entitled to the money did not get it. "This Is nil eliminated now. The question of contributory negligence nnd the fellow servant theory are dono nway with. The fact that a man is Injured while engaged In his regular labor Is sufficient to entitle him to the benefits of the fund.

And we are not the only ones. The Oliver Mining Co. has a similar system which Is also working out to the satisfaction of both the men and the company." The commission has been busy col lecting Information about the statj and some, of the facts unearthed are of a rather startling nature, showing an absolute lack of regard by some employers for the safety of the men employed.

Slee man going to base on St. George's error, stealing second and -went to third on Peterson's single and ennio home on an attempt to catch tho lat ter at second. In the eighth inning.

The Philadelphia Nationals had a list of 2. players they wanted to land by the draft route. Pitcher JefT Pfeffer, of the Roston Nationals, will most likely perform In tlu Southern league next season. "Nap" Lajoie has passed Jackson nnd is crowding Ty Cobb for the bat ting championship of the American League. During the Athletics' stay in SL Louis, President Hedges made flatter ing eiffers to Harry Ifcwis to manage the Rrowns nxt season. As the Athletics will be playing at home while Detroit is hitting the road, prospects for the pennant loek pretty sweet to Connie Mack. Catcher "Chief" ' Meyers, of the Gi ants, bar his old war club n the Job this season. He stands third In tha National p-ague batting averages. I'irry Cheney, the Louisville pitcher, has joined the Chicago Cubs, and will be given a chance to show his puzzlers against the eastern teams. Tris Speaker says that the no-hit game pitched by Ed Walsh, of the White Sox. against the Red Sox was the greatest exhibition that he ever faced. NEW BASEBAWp RULING.
