E. E. BATY ONCE MORE CHIEF. Chief Pearson, on retiring from the office of head of the fire department at Colorado Springs, Colo., particularly requested that he should be succeeded by E. E. Baty, who had formerly filled the same position. His desire was fulfilled when, on April 16, he saw his predecessor take the oath of office and reappear in his old familiar uniform. Among the changes which caught his eye on revisiting fire headquarters were the new readingroom on the first floor and the change of the chief’s office from the second floor of the city hall to a room next to the readingroom. The reappointment. of Chief Baty gives great pleasure, not only to the firemen, but also to his fellow citizens.
