WORKINGMEN'S COMPENSATION
COMMISSION WILL IMPART
MUCH USEFUL INFOR
MATION. 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.

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. The incn arc

Insurance, but this is merely to give,

"AVhero a man Is only Injured he Is

Kiven the best medical attention, and
is paid a sum fixed on a schedule of
injuries, each specific Injury which may
be received In the mines having a fixed
benefit. 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.
REVOLT IN MACCABEES.
Resignation of Several Great Camp Of
ficers is Demanded.
The insurgency movement originat
ing in Majestic tent. No. 42.', Detroit,
against the present administration of
the Knights of the Modern Maccabees
and which was characterized by ad
ministration forces as a "tempest In a
teapot," and the work of "soreheads"
has spread to tents out in the state.
Now comes Oalhoun tent, No, M of
Pattte Creek, a tent of over flOO mem
bers, with relhot resolutions demand
ing the resignation of several of the"
great camp officers.
There resolutions, together with res
olutions, prepared and adopted by Ma
jestic tent of Detroit, will be intro
duced on the floor at the special ses
sion of the great camp in Port Huron
this week, when the proposed advance
In rates of the society will come up
for discussion.
To take up the resolutions at this
special review it will be necessary to
suspend the rules, and the big fight
will come when nn attempt to have tills
done Is made.
Majestic tent resolutions ask the
abolition of eight or ten officers In the
great camp and the elimination of
"frills nnd politics."
Calhoun tent resolutions, adopted
unanimously, printed in circular form
and mailed to every representative to
the great camp, demand the resigna
tion of Orcat Commander (leorge S.
Lovelace, Dr, Talbot Sleneau. great
medical examiner; flrcat Lieut. C.
H. Thomas and Judge K. J. Jeffries, of
Detroit, members of the executive
committee. The resolutions ure sia
ziers in compnrlson to the Majestic
tent resolutions which stirred up a
veritable hornets' nest.

I The above are the line-ups selected

The; entire receipts of the game will
be elven to the Calumet Associated
Charltl-a, as nil expenses have been

been donated by John D. Cuddihy.
balls will be furnished by the Keck

The game will undoubtedly be the
biggest of the season. The league
executive and secretary have shown
rare Judgment in the selection of the

been regular players In the Copper
Country league nil summer, with the
exception of Dr. Roche of Wolverine,

The entire receipts will be given to
the Calumet Associated charities, nnd
will help to provide a few necessi
ties for those who nre unable to se
cure them otherwise. That the fans
will do their share to make the game
n huge financial success is already n
foregone conclusion. Tickets will be
placed on sale nt once nnd ns season
tickets will not ndmlt the holder to
the park, the demand will bo very
brisk.

PAUL HOGAN'S ALL-STARS HELP
LESS IN SATURDAY'S GAME
CALUMET WINS BY SCORE
OF 2 TO 0.
"Robby" Renwick added to his fame
as a pitcher on Saturday, by holding
Paul Hogan's hard-hitting All-Stars
helpless In the match at the Calumet
Athletic park. Only tvnty-seven men
faced "Robby" in the entire nine Inn
ings, and only one hit was collected
off his delivery. He had seven strike
outs to his credit and nllowcd only one
base on balls.
From n Calumet standpoint, the
game was nndoubiedly the best of the
season. St. Oeorge, who was cm the
slab for the All-Staia was touched up
for five safeties, one a two bagger by
Renwick, and errors helped to give
Calumet its runs.
The locals started In the first. 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.
Sleeman was hit by a pitched ball,
stole second and scored on the return
from Raton's- single. The All-Stars
did not threaten throughout the ( en

SPORTING EDITOR'S NOTES.
The New England league has turned
down nn ffT to consolidate with the
Connecticut league.
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.
Agreement Over Sale of Player Null
In Cae of Death.
' -lclnnnti, O.. Sept. 11. The na-
1: .1 baseball commission has an
nounced officially for the first time the
wording of the new rule' which has
been under consideration for some time
relative to the club which purchases
a player who dle-s before reporting, be
ing relnbursod by the club selling tho
player. It follows:
"It is agreed that In the event of
the death or permanent Incapacity of
a player prior to his reporting to the
party of the second part and giving it
actual service In the training or cham
pionship series, this agreement shall
be null nnd void and the party of the
first part binds Itself to forthwith re
turn to the party ef the second part all
or nny of the consideration received
for him, whether It be in money or tho
release of one or more players, nnd to
absolve said party of the second pnrt
from nil obligations for payments that
have not matured."
Insurance Claims
can be realized for the full amount
of the policy only when all records,
books and papers, etc., requested by
adjusters are submitted. A
Slobc Cabinet Safe
affords protection to paper that are
not in themselves insurable, but
which art frequently in demand after
a fire.
