Yokohama, November 23
When Glhhs, tho local manager, with
n party nf friends nnd delegates from
various Japanese baseball teams, a
host (if rcKrtcrs from tho Jnpnnese
press ns well, and a brass' band, nil of
whom ho wns forced to entertain for
two day, went out to meet tlio belated
steamship China, carrying on hoard of
licr ,no "rsl All-American baseball

greet them was "Mlko" Klshcr. man-
Count Okuma and "Mike" Fisher.
After tho usual pi'cllmlnarles and n
general dubbing of tbo China an a lub,

of thlrty-thrco years, "Mike I'lsher
said: "Will tho Mikado be at the dock

(llbbs here tried to explain "When

"Fleet!" echoed "Mike." Fleet!

"Now, look here." continued "Mike"
Fisher. "Didn't I get n letter from
President Itoosowlt? Suro the Mlkn

mind now, make some other appoint
incnl for mo."
Tho first gnmo was with tho Wascda

awaited tho boys. Unfortunately, they
wcro driven directly to tho grounds.
though they nvallcd themselves of tho

ceived a royal ovation.
Count Okuma, though disappointed

Fisher long to Introduce himself, nnd,
ns a natural corollary, to stroll nrm In
