SHIBE PARK. Philadelphia,
Oct. 14. (AP) The dreams of
the old master, Connie Mack, came
true this afternoon when his
youthful Athletics won the base
ball championship of the world
-with a flying finished that packed
all the thrills of a story book cli
max, all the nerve-tingling excite
ment of the final act of a melo
drama. The ninth inning of fantasy be
came the ninth-inning of reality
when the men of Mack, American
league champions, surged from
behind to score three runs and
beat the Chicago Cubs, champions
f the National league, 3 to 2, in
the fifth and deciding game of the
World's series.
,With the President of the Unit
ed States and the First Lady of
the Land to applaud them, joining
the applause of more than 30,-
"000 fans, the Athletics for the sec
ond straight game demonstrated
their unconquerable spirit by ral

E. A. Miller Tells Realtors
Need Exists in Salem
At Present Time
A public market in Salem
would nxaterially help farming
conditions about this city. E. A.
Miller, with Hawkins and Rob
erts, told fellow members of the
Salem Realty Board at the board's
first meeting of the season held
last night at the Marion hotel.
The realty board could do'' no
greater service to the farmer right
now than to back the establish
ment of such a market, Miller
said, because through it the
small producer could secure all
the way from twenty-five to a
hundred per cent more for his
fruits and vegetables than is now
Objection of the merchant to
the public market should be dis
counted, Miller pointed out. as the
merchant in reality would gain
more In the long run, for the
farmer quickly turns his funds
back to the storekeeper. The
public market, too, would be one
means to helping breal the larg-

Fleet of Tugs Unable to Get
Empress of Canada
Off Rocks
VICTORIA. B. C, Oct. 14.
(AP) Attempts to refloat the gi
ant liner Empress of Canada, im
paled on Pinnacle Rocks at Mc
Illwaines Point, Just south of Al
bert Head in the Straight of Juan
De Fuca, near here, failed today
when a fleet of salvage vessels
and tugs were able to Jerk the
ship only a few inches at extreme
high tide.
The straining tugs were unable
to move the Empress again as she
settled more firmly than before
in the grasping rocks. The big
Canadian Pacific liner was found
to be resting on the reefs from
the bow almost amidships.
Sharp rocks jutted up through
hull plates. Salvage experts in
dicated it would be necessary to
blast these out, patch up the holes
In the vessel's bottom and pump
out the water in the forward holds
before the ship can be moved.
Damage to the vessel was esti
mated at $250,000 if she can be
brought off in her present condi
tion. Her grounding in the fog late
yesterday was, described by the
passengers as 'the "quietest ship
wreck that could have taken
place." The ship came to grief
only a few minutes before the end
of the voyage from Southampton,
England, where she had been
thoroughly reconditioned.
Luncheon was served aboard
for the passengers before they
were taken off. They were
brought to Vancouver today after
spending the night In Victoria.
