Denmark. Sweden and Germany were
the victors last night, while the fourth
match, between Bohemia and Ireland,
aaa declared a draw.
Th opening pull occurred between Den
mark and America. The firemen's team
represented America, and until last night
the, firemen ranked well up among the
favorites. But the knights of the nossle
didn't stand much chanca . when the
huaky Danes began to pull. For four
minutes tha Copenhagen crew was con

Emit Tolbad gave the signal and Anchor
man Hans Mets swung himself Into the
saddle. It was all off with the fire lad

Following the Inmark-America
match came the Bohemians and Irish.
And that was tha big pull of tha even

sons of brawn labored on the hemp. Dur
ing tha first part of tha pull the Irish
had tha advantage. They had a foot on
tha Bohemians. But as the period began
to closa Captain Hlha'a men went to It
with a will and when the time was up
Referee La Bron decided the Bohemians
had an Inch advantage and so awarded
them the pull.
Then started the argument. Captain

After much argumeut pro and con by
Lynch and lUha aa to whether Hokuft
did use his hands, the matter was finally
left to the captains of the other teams.
They decided. Inasmuch aa there was a
distinct dispute that the match should
be called a draw and that it should be
