American . League Magnates
Think Too Many National
Men on Commission.
Chicago, Nov. 1. President B. B.
Johnson of the American league, in a
statement tonight, admitted that there
"probably will be a change in the
complexion of the National Base Ball
commission." - !
The statement was issued after two
afternoon newspapers had quoted Mr.
Johnson as saying that August. Herr
mann, chairman of the. commission,
would be deposed. Immediate denial
of the statement was made. President
Johnson,' however, said that certain
club owners ot the American league
wer eooDOsed to "too much National
league in the composition of the Na-
Confers with Johnson.
Mr. Herrmann is president of the
Cincinnati club of the National league
and has been chairman "of the Na
tional commission since the '(formation
of the body, under the .agreement of
both leagues. He was in conference
with President Johnson here last
week regarding questions involving
the commission.
The commission is made .up of
Johnson, Herrmann and t John
Tener, president of the ' National
league. , '.,-
Must Must Agree on Third. .
New York. Nov. 1. The Chairman.
of the National commission is elected
annually by the votes of thetwO major
league presidents, which means that
both Johnson and' Tener must "agree
upon the third member, since a dif
ference of opinion would result in a
deadlock. As both league presidents
are automatically members of the
commission, as at present consti
tuted, the only way in which the com
plexion of the body could be changed
would, be the election of a third mem
ber not affiliated with either league in
place of the present chairman, who
also is the president and chief stock
holder of the Cincinnati National
league club. i

Speech at Johnson.,
- Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 1-After
Shaking hands with crowds at fifteen
cities and towns in New York state,
President Wilson arrived here at 1:20
o'clock this afternoon on his final
trip of the campaign. His train was
twenty minutes late, because of the
frequent stops en route.
Greeted With Cheers.
Johnson City, N. Y., Nov. 1.

train passed through here today, the

of the employes of a shoe company,
which recently established the eight
hour day. The workmen and their
families repeatedly applauded the
president, who shook hands with
Alluding to the shoe company's
action in effecting an eight-hour day
as an indication of a spirit which di
minished feeling between capital and
labor, the president said:
"I want to express my regret that
I was not able to be here last Satur
day to celebrate what I think was a
very significant thing, the action of
the firm of Endicott, Johnson & Co.,
in giving its employes eight hours,
not only for the reasons that are
generally given, but also for better
reasons, because they regard men and
all their employes as members of the
same business family with them. If
that sort of feeling existed every
where there would be no question be
tween capital and labor. I want to
congratulate you upon living under
such auspicies and tell you how very
much obliged to you I am for this
real welcome."

United States Policy Unchanged.
Washington, Nov. 1. Secretary

Secretary Lansing made it plain,
also, that no decisive action would be
taken until Germany had had oppor

version of the attacks on the Marina

sent to the embassy at Berlin were
said to ask for an investigation by
Germany and not for an explanation.
