Among tbe few favored spots within Ilia
Greater New York limits which maintained
their attractiveness In tlio (ace of yesterday'
nomtorm, rl-htof line clearly belongs to ths
tlK Cycle Hhow In projjross t the Grand
Central Palace. Originally designed as
a general reunion of wheels, wheelmen,
anil wheelwomen. It lias gradually d
relopxl a social aspect which appeals
strongly to tli conservative public who hate
Dot yet crossed the rutilcoaof oycledotn. Asa
result the Initiated devotof the'sport hare
no longer a monopoly nuUlde tbe technical
features of the show, and tho artlrtlo "trim
mings" thrown In by way of embellishment are
hugely appreciated by general curiosity seekers.
This win particularly noticeable yesterday,
when cclebrnntsor Lincoln's birthday swarmed
through tho turnstiles and along the show
aisles on every floor until the Immense build
Inar became a human hire. The remarkable In
flux from the depot enhance was taken as an
Indication that many ont-of-town people had
decided to celebrate ths holiday at the Cycle
City, and further evidences of the rural ele
merit were pointed out by the regulars. Iloiy
cheeked girls with equally healthy-looking
Korta might be met In all directions, each
laden down with an assortment of cycling lit
erAtura, to which he or she added at every
stand until the result bore a fair Imitation to a
. moving news stand. The Invasion proved a
distinct blessing, as It not only stirred on the
j hortlived enthusiasm of the Miree" city visitors.

At.nAxr, Feb, 13, Tb member of the)
National Assembly of the L. A. V. met to-day
to adopt new rules for tli f ntur government of
the organization. Three sessions were held,
which were not only protracted but at time
lormy. Various recommendations of amend
ments to the constitution and by-law were dis
cussed, and measures calculated to benefit the
league were defeated by apparent evidence of
sectional Jealousy. 'While tbe New York and
New Jersey delegate carried the election for
new ofucer on Thursday, thoy war alone lu
almost all changes mad In the rules to-day.
The Racing Hoard recommended tho rein
statement of some forty riders to the amateur
ranks. Upon tbe declaration that they wero
practically new racing men and Ignorant of the
rules, In many Instances they were reinstated.
Tho question of adopting divisional option In
rslatlou to rJunday racing was dltoutted at
great length. Representatives from northern
California and some of the far Western State
mad strong appeal for the passage of the
measure. There were 104 votes against and 77
In favor of Its adoption.
The scheme to have the National Itaclng
Hoard consist of a Chairman to be chosen by ths
President, and the Chairmen of the various
State boards, was lost.
It was agreed that considering the enormous
growth of the league and the Inoreassd work of
Its President he be allowed such sum an
nually for tho expense of hi office a the Na
tloual Assembly shall approve of. The bond of
the Secretary was Increased from J5.000 to
SI 0,000 and the Treasurer from 10,000 to
lr'.00- . . . . -
The attempt to change the method of award
Ing the national meet from a mall vote of the
delegates to a vol at the National Assembly
meeting ws defeated.
The plan to empower the State board to con
duct their racing affairs and have the National
Hoard act as a sort of arbitrator was with
drawn. The sentiment of the meeting was
against allowing State board to legislate too
freely upon racing matters. ,
'I bn rejection of the proposition tn make tho
Chairman of tho National llnclug Hoard a sal
aried official created great surprise. It was ex
pected that the assembly, appreciating the labor
of properly adjusting the large racing Interests
of tho 1, A. V would make the office worth
about $-'.600 a car. Independent of it running
expenses. The eutlro western Pennsylvania
and part of the Massachusetts vote was cast
against the measure, while the New York and
New Jersey men were in favor of It, It was
felt by a large majority of tho delegates that
the with of the New Yorkers to makn the post
Hon a enlnrled one Implied that they had some
candidate In view for lb oftlcc.
ll wus decided thai In the event of a contested
election In any division, such contest must first
be referred to the division Mights and Privileges
Committee, If there Is one, within ten days after
tho result Is announced In the official organ of
thn league, and must be heard and decided by
such committee within thirty days thereafter.
Any contestant shall have the right to an ap
peal, and if thn committee delays Its decision
beyond the thirty da) a the matter can
be referred tn the national ltlghls and
Privileges Committee. Except on appeals, the
division must pay all expenses Incurred by the
National Committee In the consideration, report,
and settlement of the contest. In case of an an
peal, tho contestant shall deposit. In advance,
with the Chairman of tho .National Committee,
n sum sufficient to covsr all such expenses,
which sum maybe refunded to the contestant
by u vote of th National Assembly, and If so
p'fiinded the division must pay all expenses.
'uendment offered by Douglas Robert of
St. l.uuK a member of the National Racing
Hoard, providing for both amateur and profes
m nal championships under league auspices,
11 us carried. In support of the amendment It
was urged thai It si as essential to satisfactorily
determine the real champions In their respecth e
classes each year.
One of the earliest changes In the amendments
to the constitution was the adoption of n recom
I..r!.dnt!nn from Ueorgo D. U Id eon of Philadel
phia that all contest" at closed college and
scliojl meets be decided under the rales of the
Intercollegiate A. A. of America.
Augustus Klrby, President of the Intercol
lrglate A. A was present during ths discussion
of the amendment, and was largely Instru
mental In securing Its adoption. ToTiiKbL'X
representative be declared that It Is the wish of
tbe 1. A. A. to maintain friendly relations with
the U A.W., despite the reports to the contrary,
ll expressed the belief that the alliance exist
ing between the two organizations covered
principally nil the points essential to cement
cordial relations. The fact that no opposition
was developed In granting to hit assnctatlon
powor to frame Its own rules for closed Karnes
naturally surprised President Klrby. a he was
led to believe that bicycle clubs might seek tb
The attempt to Indues) the league to admit
professionals to uotlve or associate membership
was lost. President Potter and ex.President
Willlson strongly supported the movement, but
tho majority opinion that the admission of such
members would prove Injurious to the standing
of the organization prevailed. The New York,
State division members, with few exceptions,
voted against thrlradmlsalon. The action taken
will not affeol professional riders to any appre

T he Itaclng Hoard presented a resolution sag
gestlng that while tbe U A, W. still refuses to
recognlxe road racing, the board bn empowered
to take cognizance of violations of the racing
rules in road contests, and penalize violators.
This resolution, which was adopted, was drawn
up at the request of the Century Hoad Club of
America, and with the tneclflo object of keep

President Potter received telegram from
Kred Titus yesterday urging the presentation of
his case In the Assembly, In talking of Titus'
appeal for reinstatement Potter declared to Til K
hiN teprcsentatlio that In his belief the Racing
Hunrd xhould have accepted the recommenda
tion of tho 'till Assembly to reinstate him to
membership. He feels that the over zual of that
board possibly worked against Titus's reinstate

Under weather conditions that tried the pluck
and skill of tb contestants the first open tour
nament of ths Ocean County Hunt and Country
Club was started on the new Lakewood link
yesterday. Th fixture decided was an eighteen
hole medal handicap for a silver trophy pre
sented by Mrs, George J. Qould, the wife of tbs
President of ths club. Forty-eight of ths nine
ty. three amateurs entered drove off from tb
first tee, nd all but one handed In full cards.
Th winner irti llrbrt L. Pratt, with 89-0
80, lie I a ion of th late Charles M. Pratt,
tbe founder of Pratt' Institute In Brooklyn,
and ha been at ths game for about two year
on the link of th Dyker Meadow nnd Queens
County Golf Club. A silver flask, the prize for
the best gross score, was won byll. P. Toler of
Unltusrol, who niodo 8fl from scratch. It Is th
third prize under tbeis condition that Toler
has won In successive open tournament, an
Instance of consistent " form."
Thursday was so fins that the golfers who hat!
assembled at Lakewood were confident. In spite
of ths weather reports, that they would have
excellent weathor on Lincoln' Ulrthday. They
will have mors confidence In " Old Probabilities"
hereafter, for there was two Inches of (now on
tbe ground In the morning and th end nottn
eight. The tournament, originally fixed for New
Year's Day, had been once postponed on account
of snow, and the Greens Committee, Arthur U.
Claflln, W. A. Hamilton and James Converse,
ralber than disappoint ths visitors from distant
point, deolded to play this time at all hazard,
but as a concession to the storm the plsyers were
told to play but eighteen boles Instead of thirty
Ths competition Is likely to hold the bad
weather record for some time to come. At 0:30
o'clock, whon ths first pair. Park and Walthew,
drove off, tbe snow was falling heavily. In an
hour a tierce sleet storm set in, which changed
In the early afternoon to rain, only to niereo
Into another snow squall. At about 1 o'clock
the skies cleared and the sun set In. n splendor
that promised tine weather for to-day's events.
Such no array of odd costumes, assumed by
the players In their efforts tu keep dry without
hopelessly fettering the freedom of their arms,
has never been seen on a golf course. Any num
ber wore a triple set of sweaters. Lynch re
versed this system, and, In three pairs of knick
erbockers, was n big round the hips as a Dutch
burgomaster. Walker scored a hit by wearing
leather-seated corduroy riding breeches. The
knitted mufflers and worsted mitts dear to
schoolboys were much In evidence. A village
storekeeper who sent a big case of rubbers to
the club bouss on speculation did a good
trok of business. Ward eclipsed th other
golfers by donning the only pair of
long rubber boots In the consignment.
Mackintoshes were only worn by n few, as they
Interfered with the swing, and those who had
them were forced to doff the long garments In
drltlug. getting so wet In the consequent ex
posure that the benefits were cancelled. Soma
were faithful to the red coals In spite of all,
which gavon touch of color to the motley pro
cosslon over the course. The caddie, boya, who
hnd nothing to do but tn keep warm and find
the ball, wore more wrappings than their
"Snow roles," which permit a player to tea
the ball when burled, and to clear the snrfscs
of the putting green with tbe Iron, were the
conditions In force. Tyng. Lynch. Park, Arm
strong, Chadwlck and some others had not In
formed themselves on these points, and lost
many strokes by observing the ordinary rnles.
An eleven for the.tlrslholn.due to h drive off the
line, spoiled Artnsirong'schnnce, however, ana
was bis only bad hole, Pratt, tho winner, has n
good three-quarter swing In driving and han
dles th Iron clubs In very supple style. He
made no mistake, except on thn home hole,
when he drove Into an apple orchard, but
showed steady rather thandasblng golf,
Toler made the first round In-IS.whsn he caught
on to the green cleaning privilege and came
home In 1)8, equaling the record made by Lynch,
also over snow, threo weeks ago. He made the
VUO-yard hole In three on this round. Ward,
Lynch, Travis, Kimball, Powers, and Watson
also showed threes on their cards, but Norrls,
by making the lUU-yard bole In two, capped the
climax In notable plays. The greatest nut. If It
could be called such, was made by Riddle, th
Philadelphia cricketer, who dropped the ball
Into the cup at th sixth hole by a thirty-foot
The course Is 2.130 yards In playing lengtb,
the holes measuring In turn '-'-'a, HI-'. '.'7'.', '.Ml,
I'OO. t!83, '-'US, 170. and .114 yard. Earth bank
are the principal hazard, and trees off the Un
compel accuraoy In direction. There was con
siderable crowding on the short holes, and on
one green alker was hit In the head by a fly
ing ball, Walton was the Innocent aggressor, but
tbe hurt was not very severe. During the aleet
storm the trees were coated with the Icy parti
cles, and the stray balls crashed through the
branches as though breaking glass. Held had a,
remarkable experience. Playing an iron on th
fourth hole the ball lodged In the branches of a
fir tree. He plucklly climbed up after It, and
banged thn ball oul with a ulbllck, making the
bole In eight.
Huge fires of logs on the old-fashioned hearths
made the club house cosey nnd warm during the
luncheon hour. The ulnduws overlooking the
links were u favnrlto vantage point finm which

CAnsoM. Feb, la. Dan Btunrt said last even
ing that the pavilion In which th Corbett-Fltz
Immons fight will take place will be ereoted on
or Immediately below the Carson race track. It
will not be a permanent or prelenttoni struc
ture, but will consist of wood and canvas. A
floor will be laid of wood, and then will come
the depressed centre In which the ring will bo
located. Hack of this will be th box seats, ro
rvrd seats, and general admission In thu
usual form. While the rate of admission ha
not been announced. It Is understood that It will
be In the neighborhood of f 3, and from that ths
spectator can go about a high as blsdeslraor
ptirse will let him, Stuart has opened a bureau
here for the purpose of making arrangements
during ths next two weeks for ths accommoda
tlon of ths crowds expected during the fight.
San KliANCieco. Feb. l'J.-Corbett Is naturally
thn Hon of the hour In this rlty, and gaping
crowds follow him wherever he goes. Kvery
oun wants to know how hs feels, and all agree
that h never looked better In his life.
"How do I feeU Well, candidly. I feel as
strong as I ever felt In my life." said Corbett, In
answer to the oft-repeated question.
"I do not Intend to remain in this city long.
as I had a little experience at Denver while I was
there that gave tn to understand that a man
must lie thoroughly acclimated to th high
altitude If he hopes tn engage successfully In
any athletic competition. ou see, I had n
little try out, by way of experience, with one of
my trainers, and don't you know the effect was
surprising, I wus pnfflng like a good fellow
after each round, and It was no easy task for
me to catch my wlud.
"Win or lose, this will be my lut battle. Of
course, I expect to svln. I don't care a fig about
thn championship. They can all gel In and
light for It after I gel through with Fitzstm
tnons." The ex-champion weighs about 183 pounds,
and nt he is as hnrd as nails he expects to enter
the ring at 180 pounds. . ...
During the day Corbett had a long talk with
Hilly Delaney. his old sparring partner and
trainer, who will be In his corner at Carson on
Maroh 17. Delaney explained minutely the
Fltxslmranns-Sharkey flgnt, and detailed all ths
weak points of the Cornlthman to the cx-cbam

was the re-entry Into the arena of fistic (port of
tho South Hrooklyn A. O. " Dody " Schwegler,
New York A. C wai the referee, Fred Hums
The first bout, of ten rounds, was at catch
weights between Hilly O'Donnell of New York
and Tom Hrady of Hrooklyn. In the seoond
round Hrady crossed on O'Donnell' Jaw and he
went down, but got up In nine seconds.
The third tonnd found O'Donnell very groggy,
nnd Hrady punched blm at will; he dropped
down aud stayed down the full limit. Police
Captain Kenny stopped the fight, nnd th ref
eree awarded the decision to llrocy.
The second bout was to have been between
Jack Held at Ireland and Jim McYry of Hrook
lyn. McVsr was unablo to get a doctors cer
tificate, so the club would not let him go on.
The final bout of twenty-five rounds at catch
weights was between Tommy White of Chi
cago and Hilly Whistler of Phlladel
phla. White weighed IV 5 pour.da and Whist
ler 1S pounds. Whistler forced tbe fight from
the start, and In tbe third round landed a right
hand swing on tho law, which knocked White
down, and he stayed down the full nine seconds,
Wben lie got up he clinched repeatedly to save
In tne sixteenth round both men were weak.
White forced the fighting, but was countered
hard on the body. While was doing most of the
leading, but his blow lacked steam. At the
end of the gu White was the stronger of the
two, and the referee declared It a draw.
(stakeholder fsmltb I Not Werrrln: Aboat
thn Bide Wager.
During the past few days thor hav been
rumor of a hitch In the big fight between Cor
bett and Fltxslmmons, as far as th side wager
Is concerned. According to one story Warren
Lewis, who has $'J,A00 of the $3,000 stnko on
the Corbett side, had withdrawn his money
from Stakeholder Al Smith. It was also said
that Fltz did not have a cent up with Smith,
and that there would not be any side wager on
the result. When Smith was seen by Tnit Si'N
reporter yesterday In regard to the matter he
"Ths whole thing I pure rot. Fltxslmmons
has tK.SOO with me for appearance money, and
the othar 35,000 U not due until next nines
day, 1 only saw Warren Lewis once within the
past few days, and thnt wan on matters entirely
apart from the present light. He has never e
proachod me regarding the $'.',600, nnd has not
taken it down. To tell you the truth, hecouldu't
lukn It down If he wanted to."
"Ills also reported that Corbett has not any
money up with J nu 7" itierled the reporter.
"That's another falsehood," said Smith,
vigorously, "' Kvery rent Is up. and, If neces
sary, he could get flUO.OOO backing If he
wanted tn, I am not worrying about ritzslm

Saddles were nearly every

that did not have the gen
uine MESINQER had an
imitation of our 96 model
to save the maker of the
wheel a few cents. All the
piracies of our idea, how
ever, are a year behind our
'97 model and lack the es
sential feature, the rattan
base. That's what makes
our saddle comfortable, for
it cannot stretch or sag.
Insist on the genuine, the
others only have cheapness
to recommend them.
