, A novelty In bearings adjustments, which
-,, seems Imuortant, is a method by which the
n cones move up tu tbe cupa laterally, without
t- H either cups or cones turning. This Is done by
f H , means of reverse threads on tho nxle, a right-
t IUJ hand thread on the left-hand end and u left-

V; IIX fixed In the hub, and the conea are held firmly

each, which tits Into the slot of the

A aquared so as to accommodate a wrench. The
f t adjustment Is made by turning tbe axle. The
Importance at such a feature Is admitted by
II expert mechanics, nhn recognize the fact that
B . even the finest moohlner will not turn out a
I cune with a convex surface, a cup with
jt, a concave auiface, and spheres of steel
D - to run between them, and have them
, ' " absolutely perfect. 'Ihe micrometers
m used for testing may not detect the inequall-
j ties, but friction will. The balls In time wear a
,, HI, t track for theinsolvea and adjust whatever In-
, llnlteslmal variations there may have been.
H , When the conusor cups are tnrned for adjust-
.. HI''- lg purposes, their faces, or ball races, as they
are termed, present new inequalities In upposl-
i I tlon. and the halls hnvo their work of wearing a

s held flat at the bottom of the tire next to the

E opposite each other, are fitted, one for tbe
B " hosepipe" and the other for the Inner

Rl "hoteplpe" the Inner tube can be released

H out bothering about the puncture until auch
H time aa he can repair It at lelaure. In the "hose-
Hi! pipe" is fitted a brass plate that Is hermetically
sealed with the rubber. In case of puncture
occurring tu the Inner tube It can be taken out

Dr. L. L. Mlal of the Knickerbocker A. C. and
William Barnard of the Monlauk Club of
Brooklyn met lost night In the tourney for the
Inlerolub amateur championship emblem at
Maurice Daly's Academy, and the battle at
tracted more popular attention than any that
has taken place for the billiard trophy. '1 be
Brooklynttes were enthusiastically In favor of
the Mentauk star. The Interest was Intense
enongh. In fact, to draw out of his retirement
Dr. Jennings, who was a competitor In the
famous Racquet Club national tourneys and a
participant In both of the prerlous interclub
Dr. Mlal's known skill as a balk-line expert
had already made blm tbe favorite of many
good Judges as the probable winner of the
trophy nf 1807, fitark's laek of -form having
left the champion of 1H0S and 1H00 In the posi
tion of one who wasn't "In It." llarnard's
popularity with the Urooklynltes was based on
his exceptional speed In Ills practice game and
on hie victory over Dr. Miller, n powerful op
ponent, on Wednesday evening. Both played
even up at 200 points and the rivalry between
tbe men was perfectlv apparent.
Barnard started off with race-horse speed, as
usual, and quickly got the lead. Dr. Mlal crack
ing duck eggaln his efforts to gain position for
balk-line nursing, Barnard kept gathering In
little clusters by swift open table work, lu which
the player's coufldencn'was tbe chief character
istic. He had luck with him, too, and he playod
safety on hit adversary besides. All this com
plicated matters for Mlal and raado his progreoa
difficult, and before anybody was prepared fur It,
almost, the Brooklyn atar had awept around his
flrtt string with a break of 17carromr, the score
being Barnard, 11 !i: Mlal.i4S.
Dr. Mlal kept playing for position In tbe face
of adverse fortune, and, what Is more, ho held
his nerve all right. Ilia tactics tor position ex
cited general admiration, but his rival kept un
maintaining his lead by open labia shots.
Thirty-four Innings rolled br beforo he got
around his first string with II. lie was 37 behind
the Brooklynltu ou a total of 101 to 145. At
latt his persistent play for position told, and
amid a shout of exultation he gained the lead
with 178 to 174. Then occurred what the en
thusiasts call a "heart-breaking" finish. And
In the test of nerve Barnard won. again lank In
the game out of the fire with a run of rt, winning
by only 0 points. Ho was overwhelmed wlUi
congratulations. It was tho longest and must
exciting struggle of the tourner. The score:

Champion J. Byron Stark of the Knicker

New York A. (3., the two gnnd-lookers of the
tourney, who have been friendly rivals for yrar,
met lu the afternoon battle, and (lakes was able
tu square hlmsilf for the two defeats he bus.
talned from Stark In the two preceding tourneys,
Hlark, as scratch man, carried a handicap nf UMO,
ten more points than he had to plav last year
when be vanquished tlie New York A. C crack,
while the latter plaved at his former handicap
nf '-'00 points. The Arademy waa crowded with
billiard lovers, (lakes relied on his proficiency
at cushion rarroms to give him victory, and he
won hv KI points. His success ended all chance
that Mark bad of adding the trophy of 1H0T to
the two other emblems that he had captured
with comparative ease,
Mtnrk, w ho Is ofitof form, opened thebattle by
cracklnr a duck egg, and a little later gathered
In a cluster of aa, the only display of the rame
that gsveanyrenl exhibition of his art as a nalk
line adept. Oakes, meantime, had executed a
number of cushion carroms of merit and hacked
tbem UDwtth safety tactics. They wereeifeutlve
lu retarding Mark's progress, and while he
turned his first string with a little
break of 14, Oakes had 74 to his lOd.
Oakes tired off a volley nf 17, some nf
them beantles and with another double
flgnre bunch of 10 passed hit drat string too,
with li:i buttons to his credit. Stark Increased
bis lead with breaks of 13, HI. 13. and 10. and
forced his rival Into safety plar In earnest. He
kept It up cleverly for ten straight Innings. It

healthr condition of racing In every seotlon ot
tho country. He reported a balance of 3,
olil.Hl on hand, tho Income from bis depart
ment during the ear, and the assembly voted
unanimously that he bo tendered this balan:e
as a fitting return for his work. Brgardlng
tbe mtpentlon of Fred Titus of New York
and his application for reinstatement, which
Is expected to come up to-morrow, tho board
recommends that no lenletcy be shown tlie
rider. It nrgues that Titus's rlolatlon of
thu racing rules In 'unwarranted pcrmtnent
expulsion from the I. A. W.
Uldcnti favors divisional option on tho Sun
Jaiiraclng question and declares that separate
championships for both amateur and profes
sional riders should lie held. He urges that
thn Leaguo should withhold lie sanction fur
six-day races, as they.. are a d. trlme.it rather
than aiCudtnntage to the sport. Ho deems
an official referee Impracticable on tho circuit
but favors dlatrtct referees or the selection of
tho Chairman or members of State itaclng
Boards to act in tin capacity of rjferce at race
(Ildeon thought the L. A. W. racing rules
should govern road racing and advised the L.
A. W. to rend the fastest professional riders to
Scotland next Jun to represent the United
States at the International meet. He Is dis
posed to look unfaTorablv upon handlcappera
officiating aa referees al race meets. He -oun-icli
tbe L. K. tV. to move slowly In placing the
Stale racing boards In control of the State rac
ing Interests under tLe head and advisement
of the Chairman of the National Board, unless
the latter be empowered to remove the State
Bonr 1 men from office, lie feels that L, A.

After tho diction for new officers the wheel

HALL QUALIFIES AT UACQVET8.
He Gels lata the Championship Final at the
Racquet and Tenala Clnb.
Considerable Interest centred In the racquet
match played yesterday afternoon at the Rac
quet and Tennis Club. It was the last tie In the
ohamplonshlp series prior to the final, which It
scheduled for to-morrow afternoon, and, be
sides. It attracted speolal attention through the
faot that the contending players represented
the home club and tbe Boston A. A. respective
ly. The visiting player was H. 11. Hunnewell.
who drew a bye In the first round of the tourna
ment. This kept him inactive until yetterday,
when It came his turn to meet Valentine U.
Hall, tbe home champion.
As In bis match with C. Lawrence Perkins on
Tuesday, Hall took some time to strike his
scoring gait, and he did not break the Ice until
Hunnewell got to four nn servlco and all-round
play. Hall responded with two on hot servlco
nnd soon after got possession for a run of five
on all-round plar, which brought him to tho
front. Ilunnewoll then gut going again nnd ran
out the game by four aces. The Bostonlan mado
a favorablo Impression and elicited frequent
applause by hit neat placing and crots-court re
turns, which clratly Indlratod careful coaching
by tils mentor, Tom Pcltltt.
Hall began to throw some vigor Into his play
In the second game, and getting In front lu his
fifth hand, he druw steadily away and wnn hy
six aces. Ills servlco wat full nf ginger, nnd lie
forced the New Englnnder tn do more running
than seemed to suit him. Hunnewell showed
the way nl theoneulng of the third game, but
Hall then got in for three. Hunnewell drew
level In the faurtn Inning, but Hall forced
ahead with a rush, and won the pitnuilcclsltely
by adashlng run uf twelve ucea in three succes
Tbe floslonlan made a rcsulute effort tn cap
ture the fourth game, and more than held his
own for nine Innings, when tho score read 7 lo
11 In hit favor. Hull th'ii gut an assorted cluster
of six, and maintaining his advantage tn the
end, won the game and match. Summary i
