MACK SAYS HE IS SERiCU;
Plank, Bender and Coombs Will Not
Play for Philadelphia Ath
Philadelphia. Nov. 4.—Fans who be
lieve that Connie Mack does not want
to get rid of I'lank. Bender and Coombs,
but was merely trying to scare them,
so that lie could sign them at his own
terms, are mistaken.
Mack.saiu yesterday that the three
pitchers would never again appear in
Athletic uniforms. He didn't tell the
reason for his sudden feeling of dis
pleasure toward the three veterans, but
lie did say that the reasons for his ac
tion were different in each ease.
•'The papers have overlooked the
fact. observed Counie. "that these
men are still great pitchers. Plank al
ways has taken good care of himself.
•le should be good for two or three
years more. Bender is still a vouug
man and should last longer. Why, he
was the leading pitcher in the Amer
ican league last season.
"I haven't the slightest doubt that
Coombs will come back and pitch as
good ball as he ever did. This mav
sound funny for a man to say after the
action I took, buc it is ,t fact, never
theless. For reasons which 1 won't di
vulge I am through with them, and
that s all there is to it."
Mack, in closing, made a significant
remark waen he said: "I don't want
one man on the team who is not for
the club. That goes for the whole

BIG COT IN SALARIES IS
BASIS OF BJJfACE PACT
Present Inflated Contracts Must Go
Warring Factions Agree—Players
Cop All the Profits—American
League to Meet To-morrow
Philadelphia, Nov. 4—Peace in base
ball does uot appear to be far distant.
Everything indicates that there is an
understanding between the high of
ficials of organized baseball and the
Federal promoters. The statement of
Owner Ueeghman, of the Chi teds, that
both sides of the controversy had
agreed that the paving of exorbitant
salaries to players must cease, shows
plainly that the two factions have
struck upon the proper basis for com
ing to an agreement.
The first thing sure to happen when
peace is established is a slicing of the
salaries. The game cannot exist at the
rate players want to be paid for their
When the American League mag
nates assemble at Chicago to-morrow
it is expected to prove the most mo
mentous conclave since the Federals en
tered the field. The gathering, be
sides considering the special problems
of the moment, will take the place of
the regular annual meetiug, which us
ually is held in December.
I*eace in baseball is believed to bo
near as the result of Garry Herrmann's
mission to Chicago Saturday and Sun
day, Herrmann met the Federal of
ficials. it is admitted generally by the
knowing ones, to discuss peace between
organized baseball and the Federal
' "'ague, and also as the agent of
Charles P. Taft. and in both missions
he is said to have boon successful.
Under what terms the peace will be
effected cannot be said at this time.|
The problem is difficult and it will
require many days to roach an under-!
standing that will be satisfactory to I
j both parties.
i Charles Weeghman, president of the!
j Chicago Federal League Club, admitted j
Ihe had held a conference with llerr- i
maun and that the question of peacei
| was discussed and considerable head i
| »'»y made. Whether he represented the'
| federal League is not known, but as!
President Gilmore was not present at j
! the gathering it is thought he did.
Herrmann before leaving for Cincin-i
; I,a! > acknowledged he had seen the Chi-i
I '' ;i go Federal owner, and that they had I
i a long talk regarding a truce, and that
j it looked to him as if all this wrangling !
! baseball would be stopped for all j
] time. He is said to have departed feel !
mg as ii he had solved the problem |
I that would settle the matter.
| It is asserted that Weeghman prob-'
ably will get the Chicago National!
| League team, and that his purpose in j
i talking to Herrmann was in one sense
i to see what could "be done toward get-'
I ting the Cubs. Weeghman did not de-;
I ny that the Cincinnati magnate prac-!
I ticallv was raft 's agent and there was i
a possibility of his getting the West 1

when he made public recently the fact
that Manager Connie Mack had asked

EXAMINE THE CHILDREN
BEFORE TfIEY CO TO WORK
Commissioner John Price Jackson Be
lieves They Should Show That
They Are Fitted for Their Work by
Commissioner Jo>hn Price Jackson, of
the Department of La'jor ami Industry,
has long been firmly convinced that
children going to work between four
teen and sixteen years of age should
have careful ui(*lical examinations
showing that they are fitted for their
work. Although his department does
not have sufficient force to do this
work, he has been endeavoring to ob
tain the co operation of other agencies,
such as the local departments of health
and in this work iie has had the hearty
support of the Governor of the State.
During the months of June, July and
August the children in Philadelphia be
tween the ages of fourten and sixteen
who applied for labor certificates have
been given a medial examination.
This work has been carried 011 under
the direction of the Pennsylvania De
partment of Labor and Industry with
the efficient co-operation of the Bureau
of Health of Philadelphia, and with
necessary financial assistance anil other
important service given bv the Penn
sylvania Child Labor association.
The total number of children ex
amined in Philadelphia in the above
named work was rj,91»4. Of these 724
were found without defect, 3,221 with
one or more defects. There were 336
certificates temporarily refuses! because
of the need of proper glasses ami 75 re
fused because of bad teetih. These eer
tificaites were afterwa-ds granted when
the defects were corrected. There were
sixteen certificates refused absolutely,
because of the following defects: Heart
disease. 2: jioor nutrition and anaemia,
1 : refused to wear glasses, I: pthisis,
3; pfbisi" with mitral regurgitation, 4;
N.iep'eious tuberculosis of the lungs, 1;
tuberculosis of hip with mitral regurgi
tation. 2: rheumatism witfh mitral
regurgitation. 1. and nephritis, 1.
Dr. John C. Price, chief medical in
spector of the department, sums up the
lesults of the examinations of these
3,9fi4 children as follows:
"The result of this examination
shows the necessity of continuing/this
work so as to iprotect the children from
•being placed at work when ttoey MM
physically unable to rttand the confine
ment. lon-g hours aud ofter unhealthy
conditions surrounding industrial occu
"It also, I think, demonstrates tlie
need of classification of employments to
which children should be eligible, that
is, so children who are strong and well
developed physically should be allowed
to be cm ployed in any industry per
miiwaible 'by law. Then there is a
grade of children who are below par and
w"ho should only he allowed to be em
ployed in such industries n* insure
plenty of outdoor life and not to;i long
hours. Then there is still ano'her .'lass
of children who should not be permit
ted to engage in labor at all until aft
er they are sixteen years of age. ThU
classification, in my opinion, should be
made by a committee composed of vari-
| ous health officers and physicians who
j have been examining "children in
PLEASED WITH IDE BIBLE
Everybody Readily Shows Appreciation
of the Oreatest Offer Ever
Made by Any Newspaper
Those who started to clip certificates
j from the Star-Independent a week ago
j can now testify to the true merits of
, the great offer, for the Bible distribu
j tion started off with immediate satis
j faction to all concerned. All who got
j their Bibles are proudly showing them
Ito their friends, and commendations
and congratulations are already pouring
' into this office.
i The limp leather volume with over-
I lapping covers is the most popular, al
though the one bound in silk cloth is
! just as serviceable and contains all tin l
j beautiful illustrations printed in witli
I the type as well as the colored plates.
I There is also a Catholic edition, which
' contains the full-page colored plates,
j approved by the church, without the
Tissot and text pictures, and this is
being distributed in the same bindings
1 as the Protestant books.
It makes no difference how mane
Bibles you may now have, you will
want this one, anyway, for it is illus
trated as no other Bible in the world is'
illustrated. The picture for eneh par- i
titular verse or subject taken up is in- j
serted with the type, so that it corre
sponds with the accompanying text
matter. The publishers expended $30,-
000 for this work alone and, 'besides,
they selected the most appropriate of
the famous Tissot collection, anil these
are reproduced in colors and inseted in
their proper places throughout the vol
ume. The result is a grand work of art
which cMiiot be surpassed.
