H ' There was a Urea and rrpresontatlvo matter
H ,of oyellng legislators In Parlor A tit the Grand
H i Union Hotel last night when the annual meet-
ln or the New York btato Division of the I A.
H W. came to order. All teemed to realize the
H Importance of the oocntlon and wasted little
H- time In disposing of the volurao of business
Bj awaiting discussion.
Hf The session was signalized by some unexpected
H$ a and almost sensational Incident'. Ono of these
Hii ' ' Wa a motion to Instruct the Stato delegates to
H, upnose the reelection of President Elliot of the
H& lenguo at the National Assemblr. The Idea
X seemed to fall In with the views of several
H'f present, but Chief Consul Potter finally per-
H' sundod tho speakers to let tho delegates bo un-
Hy fettered. In order that his own position In tho
H'fr matter might bo thoroughly understood he sub-
H.t' mlttcd tho following important stntcment:
B,"' Certain of my generous friends have proposed mr
R' candidacy for tho unit o of President of the League of
Hf American Wheelmen. I am deeply crateful for tho
K compliment Implied by this suggestion, and though a
Ei publlo declaration may not seem "oil timed until
Ki after the personnel of the Natlonnl Assembly Is deter
V 4tp mined, I am led by many conflicting And apparently
Bo. confuting articles in the public prints to state as fol-
wv The office of President requires the performance of
Vp duties which I cannot at this time undertake A
mf- due attention to mv personal business and to the
B'l official work now demanded ot me wllliln my own
N Btate will oonsume my full measure of ttmo and
E$ energy for another year. We nre about to at-
i tempt the pastago or a Uood ltoa is htll at
rf Albany, and to tho accomplishment or this object
R& every member of our Stale division I expecteu to
'." lend Ws Iiest teal. Un ler these conditions and while
Ht tht promise of success It apparently so bright, It
Htf would b; an net of doubtful loyalty for nuy nffict r to
;5 abmdon I Is post In the division or m divert his en
H.y ereleab) the acceptance of nnother onice.
Ht ,- Our work lu hand pertains toasiiujcctto which I
5& bave Riven long and carerul attrnilon, and the nivm-
l bertnftheNew York Division will rightfully hold me
u responsible In some degree fur Its success I have c-
'g ceptrtl tnls rrtponslblllty mid shall try to Justify It.
Hu but ror reasons which I have now stated and which I

Ki lnclnded four State, twenty-nine county, eleven

to the unsatisfactory results.
Y: The committee on nominations then presented
the names of flf t delegates to represent the
$Z division at the National Assembly In February,
r and for a time there were indications of trouble.
i'-l Charles A. gheehan objected to have the namo
i thrait upon the meeting, and remarked that the
ti ommittee was apparently a self-appointed one
vhlch bad made its choice in caucus. Chief
Potter quelled the rising storm by stating that
nominations were still in order. Only one fresh
name was put forward, nnd it was at once with-
Jj, urnwn by the nominee. This settled the matter,

Snapbor Gnrrlson, the well-known jockey, has
become Involved In a controversy with t! ?
Brooklyn police authorities. Uecrgo Taggart of
100 bouth Portland avenue has notified buper
Intendent McKeUov that he placed to lth
Garrison a few days ago as an Investment on n
horse entered on ono of the winter men tracks
nt the olils of ' to 1. and that although his
horso won he failed to collect his mono). He
alleges that darrlson has been making a hand
liook on the races in a saloon nt Fulton and
Downing streets. The pollco report thnt they
tanno. find any evidence thai there is any
gambling nt the place, and Tuggnrt will bav u lo
go to court for satisfaction.
Garrison has this to say about Taggart's al
legation: "I nccr In ra life hnve sold fools or
conducted a pool room In Brooklyn. This Is
some Job or eousplrnc) nralnst me. I never
bother ulth tho horse races In tho winter."

Judging from the speedy riding of tho leaders
In the six days' International bicycle raco In tho
Madison Square tlarden yesterday, the existing
records will be Ion ercd beforo the itiuggle ends.
So far the race hns been a surprise. In thnt the
favorites have dropped behind, nntl the "dark
horses" hate pedalled their way to tho front.
After riding ono hour after the start, yesterday
morning, Linton, tho Welshman, retired. Ho
hntl covered S3 1-fi miles within the hour, which
Is a new Indoor record. Tho best previous
figures were 21 miles 0 laps, mado by Peter
Dcrlo In the Garden In 1803. Lumsdon, the
Scotch champion, finished on even terms with
Llulon, while tho old record was also broken
by Waller. Chnpple, and Madtlox.
Lumsdcn left tho track nfter tho second honr,
hnrtns added four mllos to Hie record, both ho
and Linton deciding to sate themselves tor tho
sprints to be runoff lalor in tho vteok. Gcprge
Cartwrlght wns tho first man to really break
down. Ho received n, bad fall at Saratoga re
cently, nnd was so stiff and sore after complet
lng a few laps aver nlnetcon miles thnt he was
forced to permanently withdraw.
It was Just 230 o'clock yesterday morning
when Van Km burgh, tho " Boy Wonder," and
Waller Indulged tn a hot spurt. Van Emburgh,
who was on the Madison avenno curve, broke
his chain nnd sprawled all over the track. Wal
ler ran Into htm with terriflo momentum nnd
wns sent filing. Van Emburgh was Injured lu
tho stomach by Waller's bandlo bar. nnd was
helped to his dressing room. Waller received a
gash under his right eye and had to stop.
Shortly afterviurd both men resumed riding, but
Vnn Emburgh had to quit soon, as he was very
weak. Waller continued until fi o'clock 1 outer
day nftornoon, when ho vtas forced to leave the
race becauso his c) cs were almost closed.
The crowd stayed until almost breakfast time,
when a majorltv of tho riders receded their
tlrit naps. Rending, tho "hnldlor," vtas I lie
principal objcit of interest. He gave an exhi
bition of enduranco that was wonderful. Char
lc Robb, the noted English rider, held the best
previous record for consecutive riding. He hud
covered -'40 miles in London somo years ngo
without dismounting, lint Heading surpassed
this performance by coeerlng !!4S miles, for
vthtctt he rcceltid a, npoclal prize of SoO. When
he dismounted ft was only for a few moments,
for ho resumed his Journey nnd hit up the pace.
'Ilia struggle for the lend botween Heading
and 'lodib Hale, tho Irish champion, was the
feature j esti rdny. At It o'clock Inst night Blad
ing hml com rtd .125 miles nntl fl Inps. little had
ridden .UJ miles and fl laps, and began tn put
on steam. The crnnd cheered tho Irishman,
nnd when he pulled up on even terms with
Heading nl.out 8 o'clock ho recelt ed an ot itllon.
llnle riKle an unusually high-geared wheel nnd
rolled olf tho Inps an if he was a competitor In a
sprint rate. Heading was enntented with a sys
tematic Ltilt, and did not spurt wheu tho Irish
man pusicd him.
,'.t li o'clock llnle led by nbout five miles over
the "Soldier." His trainers and frlet (Is de
clared thnt he had not let Himself out, nnd
would, later un. show Increased speed. Hale's
paee. however, has been a most severo test on
Ills nli) slcnl strength. Moore of Philadelphia
jutlu vtlth good Judgment during tho tiny, keep
ing within balling distance of the leaders.
Piece, the Boston roadster, was also careful of
himself, unit staved within reach ot the top.
Charley Ashlnger, contrnrv to expectations,
held hlrt otvn aud clung to the vanguards with a
tenacity that was surprising. Hanson, Den
marK's representative, loft the raco from sheer
e'xhnustion, and (.'hnppio of England also re
tired, believing that his forto was short-dls-tariLe-

lenders well In sight nnd were in good
shttpu to continue the Journei at 11 o'clock la-t

all riding strongly at that hour. Maddnx, the
Asbury Park fiver, w hlle quite n distance in the
reiir, vt as the star sprinter last night. He bet
the pace for the leaders and they had to work
hard tn Keep up. Pete Golden, thu old pedos
triin, kept plugging along al a comparatively
stiull's pace. '1 he others were In the race for
a limited time and were expected to drop out at
All) o'clock Hale completed 1170 miles nnd 7
laps, which was 21 miles and 2 laps ahead of
the record. Heading had cove.-cd 1171 miles
nnd H laps, and Monro came next with .Kid miles
nnd 2 lnps. Hnle continued his sprlnttrg, nntl
gradually increased his advnntnge, although
Reading and -Moore kopi diligently at work, and
did not loavelhe track.
Most of thu riders are suffering from tneglnrn
of the tract. 'Iho vellow surface, which Is llko

It's tbe simplest sort of nschoino. and It lies en
tirely within tne power of tho United Stntos.
No help Is needed from any other nation, and

get the seal pirates Is to enforce those customs
regulations. Now yon takoCapt. Hooper, who

regulations more thoroughly, perhaps, thnn any
other officer In tho service. Ho understands all
the possibilities nf the Intrlcnto mass of rules
vhlch have been built up through many years.
3end Capt. Hooper up thcro with orders to en
'orco the customs regulations on the nlrates. and
lo'll very soon put ten end to tho buslnees.
"Mot ono of thoso fellows knows the regula
