NEW YORK. Jin. 19. The trade

Alack welded Into an invincible
croup of diamond fars, supreme
holders, of pennants and world cham-
, pionsbips.
The Philadelphia Athletics reach
ed the zenith of their team play dur
ing the season of 1913 when they
ctxuply walked away with the Amer
ican league championship of that
year and followed the capture of the
pennant with a decisive vietory over
'tis New York Nationals in tho world
series of that season by four gamss
to one.. The Athletics; finished the
regaiar season' with a Tecord of 96
games won. 67 lost and a percentage
of .627. This was 43 points better
thin the average of the Washington
team 'which closed the year in 'Bee-
ond place.
Connie' Players Led.
- Connie; Mack's " players took the
,lecd in the pennant race d urine the
second week of the season which
opened about the middle of April.

in tbe struggle;, for the title there-
- aftr., The Tecords show that 'the
-.Athletic led the leaga in team bat
tin with .28a and in fielding with
.9f6. -
It goes without saying that Mack
would naturally present his, strong
est combination, in the world's seri3
ind i that the lineup agajnst the
Giants in the battle for the premier
brwball honors of 1913 may be tak

team four out of five games, played

Connie Mack Is engaged in an at

was BQbi Jo the Chicago Americana
for SGOOO; Collins went to the same

out q.i?h consideration; The Boston
Americans took five men of the com
bination at one time or another.

the property of the Red Sox in the

preceded these players to Boston,
brtiwlrig the Philadelphia club

It will be seen that If the publicly
announced figures in connection
with, these deals are correct the Bos
ton elub pafd $68,600 In addition to
some nlayers for these five Athletics.
The Chicago White Sox paid $56,000
for-Murphy and Collins.' The New

the Philadelphia .'strong box as the
Yankee club owners gave $37,-500
for Baker and $5000 for Oldrlng.
although it was reported later. than
the Philadelphia -club returned this
sum4 or .apportion of. It when Old

Comparison Impossible Ow
ing to Abnormal Condi-
tibns of Traffic
On Freight Trains Engineers
Shown to be Working
About 10 Hours
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. The
eight-hour day commission, headed
by Major General Goethals today
made its "report of - conditions It
found to have been brought about
by operation of tbe Adamson 'law,
as it affects the railroads of the
nation. No recommendations were
offered in the report, which declares
that abnormal traffic conditions of
1917 made accurate comparison of
conditions Impossible.
"We find," the report, continued,
"that the actual practice
hive applied the eight-fcour day as a
basis for reckoning compensation of
the following employes: tngtnemen,
firemen, conductors, assistant con
ductors, baggagemen,, brakemen and
flagmen in road and yard- service
and generally hostlers. The average
number of these employes was 308,
373, which is 17.37 per cent of 'tho
total number of raiway employes."
These figures, the report say, ap
ply to railroad's having an . annual
operating revenue of Sl;0d0,000 or
.more. ' .. ..'"..'
Taking the 1916 schedule as tho
basis, the vfrar caused an Increased
expenditure of 1985.803. or 24.5tf
per cent Jn January, 1917, by rail
road having a total mileage of 104,
355. ' . . ..
"To what exent this change will
be permanent," the report continued,
"we do, not know, but a reductiou
In hours means to the ttien the they
do ot get the wage increase Indi
cated above and In some , cases it
means considerable decrease, as
where men formerly worked i2
hour they ' now ' work eight hours
for the. former ten, hours pay. -
"TLfc general change to the eight
hour shift has been so recent that
It,' was not practicable for this com
mission to undertake a special 'study
of the effect of reduced hours or el
ficlency. We can made no finding
as to how much the percentage of
increase labor cost shown for the
yard service can be reduced.
"In road service, actual experience
has shown a much less maucd
change in operation, but considering
the repeated statement of represent
atives of the railroads that train op
eration would not be affected by the
eight-hour law, the replies of ( the
carriers were somewhat surprising
in revealing hundreds of instances
Of an actual shortening of the hour
of road employes.
On the eastern roads in slo.
freight service the actual time of
engineers on duty is from 12 to It
hours per run and considerably let,
in- the south and west, the report
shows. In both slow and fast'freight
service the engineers - are running
about ten , hours a day.
Pointing out that the speed baifc
of the actual eight hour day Is ap
proximately twelve and a half milt s
an hour, the report concludes: v
"A rallroad1 cannot speed up all
tho freight trains to twelve and a
half miles. an hour. Including delay,
by any universal method. But by
close attention to the problem or re
ducing delays and with sufficient in
centive the-! conditions as to hou a
