Fr*d XL Schauffler won the January cup at th*
weekly shoot of the New York Athletlo Club
yesterday at Tracers Island. He captured the
lev after a shoot-off with A. Buter. In the
original shoot both guns tied with full scores of
SO targets, and In the shoot-off , which was at
26 targets. Schauffler continued the good work
and again returned a full score.
It gave the victor three legs on the cup. which
was more than enough to win. ss the others who
had tallied on the trophy had only one win
apiece. They were Dr. De Wolfe and O. W.
The day was exceedingly poor for shooting. A
heavy wind swept In from Long Island Sound
that froze the gunners to the bone and whirled
the little blue targets In every direction. Only
nine guns showed up at the traps, and they shot
In only five events. Schauffler was the winner
of one of the club trophy shoots. A. Suter took
home two of the prises, and C. JD. Sooble won the

ATHLETICS AT HARVARD.
J. F. Farley May Succeed W. T.
Reid, Jr., as Football Coach.
William T. Reid. Jr.. wIU probably bo succeeded
at Harvard by former coach J. P. Farley, who
handled tho football team In 1902. Farley haa
been named to succeed Mr. Reid on the football
rules committee pending a reconstruction of
Harvard's football management, should tt be
necessary to hold a meeting of the rules com
mittee after Mr. Reid goes home. Ho wiU leave
for California within a fortnight to resume his
duties, which he left to assume the position of
head coach at Cambridge, with the moat abso
lute powers ever vouchsafed a Crimson football
coach. Mr. Reid said yesterday In speaking of
conditions at Harvard:
It is a mistake to attach any special signifi
cance to the action of Harvard terminating the
two yean' agreements with Yale for contests In
all branches of sport. The action originated
in the athletic committee, and was not an action
Inspired by the overseers, who have the ques
tion of the continuance of football and other
sports in charge at Cambridge. It was dictated
by two considerations— first, that, in view of the
fact that games were only authorized until the
end of this college term. Harvard could not allow
herself to be bound by an agreement which pos
sibly she could not fuini should the overseers
restrict contests, and because of the determina
tion that in future each contest must stand on Its
own merits and be Individually authorlted. Game*
w ith Tale, in whatever sport held, must be espe
cially arranged, as are games with every other
college, from season to season.
Athletics at Harvard are the subject of review
by the overseers through a committee of Investi
gation appointed for the purpose, and absolutely
nothing can be done until that Investigation,
with it* attendant recommendations. Is complete.
It ts certain that President Eliot and those who
favor the elimination of some of the more promi
nent features of athletics at Cambridge are at
present in the minority, although their Influence
Is bo strong that It Is difficult to say what action
may be taken. It Is quite possible that there
will be limitations In the number of contests
allowed In various sport*, if there are no further
DYKFJt MEADOW'S GOOD TEA3L
Golf flab Hever Before So Prosperous, Ac
cording to Secretary Phillips.
According to th* report of Its secretary. F. J.
Phillips, the Dyker Meadow Golf Club was never In
a more prosperous condition than at present.
Th* membership of the club a year ago consisted
of 184 active and twelve honorary members, th*
Utter being mostly officers of tbe United States
army stationed at Fort Hamilton. At prevent ther*
ar* 104 active and fifteen honorary members, show
ing an increase of twenty In the active list
During 1906 seventeen resignations were received
and three members died. The membership limit Is
126. and It ts expected that this will be reached
during the coming season. Dyker Meadow has
ganled because of the fact that several nearby
dubs have lost their links.
Toe tournament committee's report shows that
during 1908 ninety-one competitions were held.
They represented 1.334 entries. Of these events
eight were monthly handicaps, forty-three were
cup or prise competitions, and forty were golf ball
eventa Ther* were In all 137 prises, which were
won by fifty-one players. In the cup or prls*
events one player won six prizes, another five, two
won four prizes each, five won three prizes each,
ten won two each and twenty-one won on* prls*
W. B. Rhett won the club championship. Amos
T. Dwlght. the previous title holder, waa the run
ner up. The Maxwell Memorial Cup was won by
James B. Rhett, who also established a new ama
teur record for the course of TS
In 1905 there wer<» seventy-eight competitions,
with 1.668 entries, and !n 1904 there were y:y-flv*
events, with 976 entries. During laat sett sun the
club met the Englewood Golf Club tn three team
matches, twenty on a side, of which Dyker Meadow
won the odd.
TIMtLY AUTO TOPICS.
Special Road Taxes for Motorists
Should Mean Special Roads.
Special road taxes for automoMU-*ts are now be
ing discussed :- several legislatures, and car own
ers are beginning to express the view that If they
are to be taxed for roads special roads for auto
mobiles ought to be provided.
At Albany Assemblyman reason Is proposing
a bill taxing automobiles tor th% maintenance of
Improved roads, and a number of special tax meas
ures are under discussion In Boston.
With reference to this subject. Cortlandt Field
Bishop, a member of the runs and tours commit
tee of the Automobile Club of America, said last
In a number of state leeislaturos tsar* 1a bow talk
about taxing automobillsta for tho support of tbo
ordinary roads. Now those roads, mostly macadam.
were not built for automobillata and are not tha
kind of roads for machines. Moreover, machine*
are already taxed as personal property.
If. however, automobillata are to be taxed for
roads. It swms to me, that th* automobllist shoulJ
have . "coSßltloa by tho establishment of road*
specially built tor bis exclusive us*. If tb* auto
moblllst's Interest* were mraanliii by tb* build
ing of a road like the Catskfll Aqueduct Highway
he probably would be more willing to pay some
special tax to build and «"«««»»i«t> hlchwara sniilsl

of accidents by collision with horse drawn vehicle*
and In Injuring pedestrian*. Moreover, It would
provide an opportunity for those who Wv* speed
to travel at a sood rate without flsagwl i< iIT

Tho triumph of th* Welch ear te th* aVaaH*

C. T. Wyckoff. of Wyckoff. Church 4b PartrMg*.
speaking of tho policy of his company* rooaaUy
I believe that ther* may be some who toal that
advertising will not pay automobile concerns to th*
disposal of cars. It Is a matter of serious eon
sideratloF for an agent to contemplate the outlay
of thousands of dollars to excite th* ' public's In
terest In his product.
We. In our company, over a month ago viewed
this problem from every conceivable standpoint.
and we were a unit In approving of an outlay of
ov«T 120,000 to cover the various cars that we han
dle. In th* matter of distributing thl* money
we concluded to use th« dally papers, with one or
two national magattnea. A* soon as this campaign
was well under way th* results were amastn*%
Th« old saying. *lf you don't toot your horn, they
