Third brigade could not solve at all.
The Third brigade team also had a
good boxman who formerly played

The catcher was unable to hold his
delivery well and this fault accounted
for many of the runs scored by the
winning side.
The game was remarkably free from
errors, considering the bad field on
which it was played. All the equip

what has happened. Good-sized cities
like Hamtramck (80,000) and Highland

Detroit estimates the population just

total; so the immediate metropolitan
district is estimated at 820,000 plus 15
per cent of that number, or 943,000.

Combination Auto Fire Wagon
for the Harrieon Avenue
Station Arrives.
The long felt desire of the south side
residents was filled yesterday when
the new auto fire wagon for the Har
rison Avenue station was unloaded by
Mayor W. H. Maloney and Fire Chief
Fred Martin at the Milwaukee freight
yard. The mayor drove the car on its
first trip out of the yards.
The arrival of the new apparatus
marks the disappearance of the fire
horse in Butte. The two animals now
on duty at the Harrison Avenue sta
tion will be turned over to the city.
Whether or not they will be put out
to pasture or to work on the streets
remains a question.
About five years ago the city started
to replace the horses with automobiles.
Each year has seen additional equip
ment and now the job is complete.
With the coming of the uutomoblle
fire wagons the fires in Butte have
been steadily decreasing each year. The
city has been more than recompensed
for the money it has spent in fire ap
"Butte now has the best fire equip
ment of any city in the country of
100,000," said Fire Chief Martin this
morning. "The new combination
wagon is a dandy."
The change from hor.se to automo
bile was made at the Harrison Ave

Tokio, May 29.—The heavy mov
ment of gold from the United States
to Japan was explained today
Kazue Shora, minister of finance, as
being due principally to the fact that
the indebtedness of Great Britain and
France to Japan is being paid partly
through America. M. Shora revealed
the fact that Japan is negotiating with
Great Britain and France with the
purpose of making war loans to them,
while private Japanese concerns, in
cluding tlie specie and industrial
banks, are planning the purchase of
British and French securities held in
the United States. These operations
will reduce the outflow of American
gold and relieve the burden of Japan's
accumulating supplies.
M. Shora emphasized the fact that
the withdrawal was not an indication
of the situation, lie also called at
tention to the fact that* Dritlsh dis
