In his annual report President Herrmann
showed that 4.877 letters and telegrams had
been sent out during last year and 124
decisions made. This was an Increase of
S3 per cent over the work of last year.
President Herrmann reported that the
actual cost of maintaining the commission
during the year was S8.0CO. Mr. Harrmann
also touched lightly upon the ticket scalp
ing cases In Chicago and stated that a new
method of aeUIng tickets must be made.
The alleged ticket scalping during the
world's series games In Chicago waa dis
cussed by Mr. Herrmann as follows:
"As In the past, the series as played
waa of the highest standard and met with
the approval of the base ball public, the
only unfortunate thing being the manner
In which the sale of tickets was handled
In Chicago. On Investigating this matter
pnough evidence was submitted to show
conclusively that a change must be made
In the futare to protect the public. With
that end In view the commission will here
after handle the sale of every ticket dur
ing the world's series under detailed rules
to be hereafter adopted."
O'llrlen Slna Umpire Ovrena.
President Joseph O'lSrlen of the Ameri
can association announced this afternoon
that he had signed Umpire Owens of Kan
sas City to officiate v during the coming
season at American association games.
Owens unipiicd about fifteen games of
the National league last season and his
work was considered highly satisfactory.
He originally came from the American
association and there waa no Idea that he
would not stay with the National league.
When President Pulliam was Informed
that President O'Brien had Blgned Owens
he "was very much surprised, and stated
that ho was under ttio Impression th.tt
the latter1 had signified his Intention to
remain In the National league as he was
perfectly satisfied with the terms offered
by the league, but if he thought he could
better himself by going to the American
association he would not throw the least
ohstaclo In hs way.
President O'Brien stated that he had con
sidered Owens as a free, agent In the mat
ter and if he had thought the man was
bound by a contract to the National league
or In any way obligated to remain In it
he would tinder- no circumstances have
made him an offer, as It was not hi
policy to be antagonistic.
