' , It tiu a disappointing- 1T 'or cycling- yeiter
day, excopt to those who went out. The only
one that ventured abroad went realixlnf that
they had something- hotter than a three to one
chance of getting wot skint, and consequently
the only onea out were thoa who had a spirit
of adventure or a mistaken belief In their Judg
ment of tho weather. Thoto of the latter class
started out about 2 o'clock In tho afternoon,
thinking that the storm was over. They wore
Unen collars and cuffs and fancy ties. Itcturn
In? home, thoy were the sorrlett ones who paid
oar fares. Tboso who went out In the morning
en ft chance wore woollens, and when they got
drenched they smiled as if they would hare
been disappointed If they had misted It. As
rale club runs wero abandoned. Trips Into the
suburbs that had been planned for weeks were
moTed along to a forward bltnk on the calen
dar. Tho country roads were deserted. The only
possible places for riding were tho finest maca
dam roads and the cycle paths. Looking out from
i the windows of their housos nt the pnddles In
tho street many who longed to be In the saddle
concluded to stay at home, not knowing that
certain roads are good Immediately after a
storm. Tho best riding wasalong.the Coney
Island cycle path, and there the majority of
those who -touched a podal yesterday steered
their wny. In the forenoon the number was
small enough to cast a gloom over the most od
tlmlstlo riders and hotel keepers. When tho
sun broko thro&gh tho clouds for a while in ths
early afternoon matters -Improved a little, but
tho procession of whsels all day was not large
'tf1 enough to interest tho tlpfcd men at ths racks.
H Women were very scarce on the road. Thty
JJK numbered less than X per cent, of all tho riders.
j$fip The few who were out wero nearly all on tan
ijjK dems.
Kgv; ' One feature of yesterday that was gall and
VEj wormwood to the reteran rider was (he faot
J " that tho grocery clerk on the hired wheel, with
S$'" a, 03 gear, long trousers and Hack Sunday coat,
ijij&i was very much in evidence. Several of the old
$ time riders who were out thought that only
fig&'- the members of the "seasoned push" who were
JjSb accustomed to "weather" and bad roads would
SSI1, ' bo seen, but the fact was that about 30 per cent.
SpE of those abroaiUwere new riders, of the wabbly
Sv kind. These novice pedallers enjoyed them
35re . selves hugely.and felt real sporty over the Ides.
fSSF of bolng out, but some of the club riders who
H5 had known what It was to push a high wheel
reS through a tea of mud declared that the pro-Ss-j
cession made them feel tired enough to go home.
if!''' Undoubtedly the lonr-trouered rldor on tbo
M; rented wboel Is a coming thing in the oycls
"' vrorlil. He rents bin machine and pays for it and
H5 enjoys it. 'lhe objection to him Is that he Is
BP ncnriy always an Imitation scorcher. Why it
'SS Should bo bo Is hard to Bay, but the tact ro
( xnnlns that lhe hired wheel riders who get out
flfSt' on fcundaya only alwajsrido In scorcher potl
RfL. tlon and mnko as much fuss travelling tha
Wi'X road as a steam launch on a rark lake. One
w s clubman sitting on a hotel veranda suggested
sEsa' that the coat-toil riders tried to scorch because
Jgy thev wanted to get as far as. they could and
ffiSw s' back .teiiln In tho time for which their wheels
jSS- nnd been rontcd.
I On tho Coney Island cycle paths yesterday
the lack of club runs nas noticeable. Tho
J.Ok-an Wheelmen, who were to have bad a pho
tograph run In the morninsr, wero out In the
titlornooii about tvtcnty-llvc strong. The now
"quint" of tho South HrooUyn Wheolmon.
which was finished Saturday, was out toward
evening lth a ouplo of hardy riders "hanging
on." Ovcrco.us wero worn by quite a number
of those out. uiiil one stylish rider wore a long
BNHsemcr coat. Tho numbor of tandems In pro
portion to single wheels was a featurelof ,th
nity. niveau rs ero freely worn, and that stylo
lia Inp lntcral Btripcs of gaudy colors wns much
In evidence. A. member of the Long Island
i Wliceimun, after watching three or four of tho
boisy pattern go by, remarked: "The chaps
, who Menr those things should net together and
form a club under tho name of the Zebra Wheel
lucn." .One rider attracted as much attention as If ho
Aai' ' ' v fcacl been pretty and a woman, lie had a bl
SS ' ryclo on nhlch the front sprocket was about
SB half the slzo of his wheels. Tho gear was 140.
iSr- tho crankH 7Mi inches long and the crank hanger
fs had a drop of Si inches. It was enamelled in a
ifflfe, robin's egg blue and evidently a machine built
tfSeJ t order. Tho rider of this vehicle passed
,$, around tho outside of Prospect Park at about
W4:' noon and In endenrorlng to negotiate some car
Hit.! tracks while turning a corner one pedal caught
?$&' on tho rail and ne had a spill. A colored man
ro: employed bv a cycling academy near by, who is
ifite something of a road racer and who happened
'&$ to know the wneelman, remarked: 'That man
&jpK It coinnilttlng suicido with bis feet. If he bad
j&L o drop of -W Inches his pedal would not have
Wp'" caught and if he had a lower gear he would bo
9 A able to handle his wheel reasonably. He ought
S!S?i to try trick riding to learn a thing or two.
wjf1 Kvery trick rider uses a low gear because It lets
iyfS j- him raovo his feet handily and do what the boss
IhB calls 'changing tho centre of gravity quickly.' "
m-?r Riders who sought to go around Cropsey ave-
'&." ' nuo and the Shore Itoad In either direction yes-
' tordar wero disappointed and found that they
TT had to turn back because of tho gates across
if?; thB ruudway on eltbe- Bide of Fort Hamilton
X ' being closed. No vehicle has been allowed to
m. - pass in front of tbo fort since tho war began
,-.-? and cyclls's from now on should lay their plans
iTj,. accordingly, 'lho Park Commissioner of Brook-
JJ, lyn tried to havo this section of the road taken
'fv-.i from Uovernment control and placed in his
tiM chnrge, but failed, anil while boislllties continue
C. wheelmen deslrimCto go by way of Fort Hamll-
'J&3.A ton to lloneonhurst will have to make a detour
Tnf; Of about a mile and ft half.
Wi1 An amusing raid w-u committed on the Coney
J Island cycle path in consequence of the storm
J yesterday altcrnoon. It oocurrcd on that
t : stretch of tho road between Eighteenth avenue
I : and tho bead of tbo Boulevard. It has been
i known to bo the case that convivial crcllsta
fti and drivers, in travelling the Coney Island
B - route, have returned home with the Impression
Bl that there Is a hotel every 100 feet Bow scare
'f ,. the roodhouies'aro has been realized only by
3-'i very tired wheelmen and those who hare bean

ftf-i the only part of the noted driveway and cycling
Kt ' court wner one con travel more than a mile
' - wlthout;0ndln(r a publlo house. .When tho
ij. hardest sboworof the day broke, shortly after
-. 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, several riders
"?-r were caught in this particular part of the road.
ST "Scorch" was the word with all, but they
LV couldn't scoich onough to keep dry. A little

9 (or about a dozen riders. The protection It of-
Pjp - fared was the samo at that atforded on the Ico-
LK ward side of a board fence. The housv was
WiT closed and a big "To Let" sign was nulled on
RiM.. the door.
!-,. As the clouds chased each other to and
Wi ' fro and the driving rain came in diilnrent dlroc-
L. tlons, the comtauy shifted from one sldoor the
xiAj, house to the other. The window s of the thanty

f ,' well-known in vaudeville; two newspaper men,
)& '. ft grocery curt driver, a girl oyclist of 12 years,
v stout man learning to ride, and a couple of
t1- wayfaring pedestrians. Two of the mon tried
j tojon.0 tho door, but tbeir thouldors wero not
strong enough. Alter about ten mlnutea of
' ablftiug from one tide of the house to the other
in the endeavor to keen to tho leeward, the
ltoyal Arcanum rider, who waa slim and agile,
succeeded in getting through a window and
... opening the door. The entire party of ref ugoes
I? took possession, cleaned their wheels with the
lb " old rags atiand, and wore cheerful at the dr
ift oumslances would permit. lu tbe.courso of

fef ', The one short block formerly known as
JKw franklin avenue, but now called Fort Hamll-
U - ton avenue, which leads from Flatbuh avenuo
ijl v to Ocoan avenuo. at Brooklyn, It very much out
'.f ,, of repair. This block is largely used by
"E ' wheelmen in passing from Washington avenuo
" to the Ocean avenuo cycle path on tho side of
f , . Prospect Park. '1 o patch It up would cost very
&'- little and riders who have bounced over tha
,1 hole now exlatimr there cannot understand
' why it la not llxed.

' Few of thoto who go from bera to tha riding
j5"J districts of Brooklyn know how well worth while
$, It Is to traversoFlatbuth avenuo to Its end In
it Jflallandi. '1 be wheeling tide swirls around at
; the end of the park and continues to Coney Isl-
L and, but it would take them less than hulf an
' hour to rouk the digression spoken of and alt
t- ttolng it would be. well repaid. The old Hinge
.'; of Vutbush abounds In plcturuiijuo nnd historic
l' homttleails that havo bcon standing since
t lIidifout," as It was called, was peonled by
Eh lird7 sons of Holland aud tha Ueulau
troops. The old bouses imsin. but the rronuds
bout them have been transformed byttba laying
out of sumptuous lawns and richly planted
flower beds, AH the residence are detached,
and there It a feast for ths ere In tha blossoms
of the magnolia, cherry, apple, and other trees,
nnd the beds of tulips, hraolnths, and panties.
Tho wheeling through these clattta preoinctt
St good from th Park to Paedergat lane In
iMlnndi', where ths asphalt ends. All the
ides havs been patched up and as thedlstanoe
is only a few miles no rider going to Coney Isl
and should miss making the detour.
A atory told at hla own expenao by a Brook
lyn cycle dealer having a plaoo near the Wllllnk
entranco of Prospect Park, la as follows: "I
atopped on tho road the other day with a couple
of my children to havo pictures taken by on of
the roadsldo photographers. Wbllo waiting 1
asked blm how ho found business. Ho said
that business was poor because few of the rider
travelling the road had any money In their
clothes. Then, mentioning my name, h said
that I and a couple of other cycl dealers were
to blame because we sold wheals on the Install
ment plan, collected the Installment on Satur
days and Sundays, and on the same days rented
wheols and exacted a deposit of $0 or 810, in
consequence of all whtoh the wheelmen, when
they reached the photographers' tents, woro
dead broke. I thought this very olsver of ths
camera man. After listening to his t'rade
against me for getting all the money. I got my
pictures, handed over my card and invited him
to come up and learn how to ride.

Talks or Ills Trip.
Spike Sullivan of Boston, who hit bean In
England for the patt eight months, returned to
America yesterday on ths Urabria. It was
expected that Ben Jordan, ths English feather
weight chamnlon, wonld come with htm, but
Jordan decided to remain at home. Sullivan
has not gained any weight dnrlng his visit on
the other Bide. Ths clever lightweight laook
leg well, and bis appearanee was quite flatter
ing to his many friends who were on hand to
greet him. That Spike does not Intend to re
main Inactive while here is evident. In a talk
with the reporter of Tnn SuNttis said:
"Of course, I am pleased to return, but it was
hard to part from such good friends as I met In
England. Everybody over there treated me roy
ally and couldn't do enough to malt my stay
pleasant. I could getfoll the matches I wanted
when I first arrived, but after I sent to grata
two of the Englishmen nobody seemed to de
sire any of my game. I won aulto a sum by
beating Jemmy Curran and Harry Webster. I
challenged Johnny Hughes, but he was afraid.
Ben Jordan is a wondor and no mistake. Ho
will make a lot of the American lighters hustle,
you can gamble. Ho Is not so very clever, but
be Is strong. He hurts every time he lands,
and this counts. Ho Is game. too. I could see
that, for In both his battles with Curry and
"White he stood a lot of punishment. When
Jordan comes hero bo will fight George Dixon.
He wnts to get the featherweight championship
nf the world. The boxing season has closed In
England and won't open for several months
vet."
Spike, as already stated In Tnn Bun, Is open
to box any man In the world from 133 to 133
pounds. A club at Philadelphia yesterday of
fered to sire 50 per cent of the grots receipts
to Spike to box Joo Oans six rounds. Sullivan
stated that ho wouldn't moot any on unless he
received a guarantee That Sullivan was well
liked In England Is shown by the following from
tho Londm Sportsman ot April 16:
Spike Bulllran, a good man both In the ring and eat
of It, lett London yesterday afternoon for Liverpool,
whence ho will sail on the Canard liner Umbrfa to
day for New York. Sulllran. by his straightforward
business In tha roped square and his gentlemanly be
havior In the ordinary walk of lire, hat made a host
of friends In England, and be leaves us with the best
wishes of a large circle On Wednesday night the
genial Spike was entertained at aupperat Oow'a res
taurant. Strand, and be took away with him vaster
day several presents. Including a handsome gold scarf
pin, the girt of Alt Sneltlng. Sullivan requested tha
representative ot the Sportiman to tender his best
thanks to all his English friends. He hopes to get on
a match with some promt lent man In the States, and,
all being well, will return to England la June or July
prepared to meet the best In th country at any
weight from 133 to 183 pounds.

The attention of metropolitan horsemen and
racegoers It now concentrated on Aqueduct,
where tho spring meeting ot tho Queens County
Jookey Club will open this afternoon. Visitor!
to tho track will find many improvements de
signed for their comfort. Tbo grand stand has
bcon moved back from sixty feet at ono end to
eighty feet at tho other, and the angle thus
created enables ono to watch the racing through
the strotch, without hindrance. Just nt the end
of the covered way leading from tho railroad
siding a new club house has been built. It is
equipped with roomy balconies on tbreo sides,
and should bo a popular vantage point and loung
ing centre for officials and holders of club badges.
Tho proposed widening of tho track has been
doferrod, as Superintendent Tucker did not
hlnk It advisable to experiment In this di
rection so early In the year, foaring that the
remade portions might not knit In time. In all
other respects ths trsck has been carefully
looked after, and, as It dries out very fast. It is
expected to furnish fair going to-day If no more
rainfalls. '
Doiplto ths uninviting weather there was a
big muster on, hand yesterday, and all tho horses
engagod, says those that can bo walked from
ths othor Long Island tracks, were stabled In
ths lncloturo and vicinity. The comparatively
seasoned horses that have already been through
the mill at Bennlngs were objects of much at
tention among those who do their picking on
publlo form. Local trainers and their followers
take a different vlow ot the situation and claim
that tho heroes of th recent Washington cam
paign will find their peers among ths Long
Island horeet tbat bava not yet raced this sea
son. This Is tho kind of rivalry that gives a
spice to raclnrr, and ther is so much of It in
evidence nt Aqueduct that the issue will be
awaited with wldctpread Interest.
A hot race Is looked for In the Carter handi
cap, which is tho richest plum of ths meeting.
Tho 81,000 added money at this stage of tbo
season, when stable expenditures run ahead of
receipts. Is a strong Incentive, and, unless ths
going turns out to be very poor, few withdrawals
are anticipated. There are fifteen horses loft
in, with W. SI. Barrlok's slx-yoar-old Sun Up
carrying the top weight of 120 pounds.
Storm King Is next In order with 118, and
Mazarine, Our Johnny, and Varus, all winners
at Bennlngs, are grouped at 110 pounds. Other
woll-known performers engaged are Tho Manx
man, Ortoland, Tabouret, Debrlde, and Sailor
King. The handicap will be run as the fourth
race today, and will be preceded by dashes for
all ages, maiden two-year-olds, and three-year-olds,
respectively. The fifth race Is for ths
stayers, one mile nnd forty yards, and a dash
for two-year-olds will wind up the card. All the
races havs tilled well.
Yesterday was a sort of off day at the other local
tracks, as the morning was against fast work.and
only trainers having Aqueduot candidates cared
'to take a chance. Still ths various strings con
trived to get In some Umbering up work. The
stake class took mattors vsry leisurely, but when
the tracks dry out onco more brisk and continu
ous work will bo the order. With the rich
Metropolitan Handicap at the Morris Park
spring meeting only a couple ot week oft,
trainers and owners realize that ths Urns for
hustling has arrlvod. and fast mores may be
looked for pretty soon if the weather clerk does
not play any more pranks. Nearly all the
cracks expected to figure In early events at tbo
Westchester mooting aro reported to be In good
boalth and rounding into form steadily. The
tno-ycar-old brigade Is unusually strong in
numbers, but whether the youngsters will
"class" when called upon Is a question that
must bodeferron.
Now that the Western Invasion has set in the
'outlook for largo fields and good racing on tho
Eastern circuit is docidodly encouraging. A
horseman who returned to town the other day
after wintering In the South and West says the
racing material In ths latter section Is quite
formidable. He thinks May Hempstead, the
noted ally that figured at New Orleans, is all
that Is claimed for her. nnd thnt among tbs
older division Lieber Karl, Algol and JIncy
and some others will have to bs reckoned
with. Algol has rooovered bis early form
In a marked degree and looks like being ripe for
tho spring handicaps. Western owners having
engagements here feel great confidence in their
ability to cut a wide Bwatb In the East this sea
son, and they propose coming on in greater
numbers tnnn ever before.
The Waldon-Morrla-Jordan combination got
most of the money at the Bennlngs meeting. By
winning the First Washington Nursery on
Saturday with their colt Fillgrnne, the first
monoy of which wns $2,200, B. W. Waldon Sc
Bon cams out nt tho head of tho winning; owners.
Their horses ran first four times and second
and third the same number of times, which
notted them $3,400. The stnblo of "Father
Bill" Daly cam next with eight winners, nine
times second, and four times third, which
amounted to S2.085. A. 11. ft D. II. Morris

The oblef crime of "ringing", trotter and
pacers la now a misdemeanor In this 8tate, dor.
Black having approved Astemblyman1 Oarll 8.
, Burr's bill amending the Penal Code in tbo In
torcst of harness racing. The new law provides
thatany person who knowingly enters or drivel
a horss In a race under an assumettname or out
of its proper class shall be punishable by a fids
of not less than flSOO nor more than' 91.B0O, or
by Imprisonment for not tnoro than' one year, or
both. Owners, trainers, and alt other persons
having control ot tho racing qualities of horses
nro Hkowlso punishable If they knowingly allow
horses so under their control to bs fraudulently
started In races. This law It similar to
thoss which were enacted a few years
ago In soveral Western States through th
Influence of tho American Trotting Association.
Secretary 8telrer of that organization has
made many costly efforts to procure convictions
under tbo laws ot Indiana, Illinois, nnd other
States, but he has not yet landed th' first out
law In ths penitentiary. Groat difficulty was
experienced In every case. It Is said. In getting
proof sufficient lo convince the Jury beyond a
reasonable doubt as to the correctness of ths
trotting records, the Identity of the horss, and
the fraudulent Intent of tho party accused ot
ringing. The hotter opinion among turfmen Is
that the most effectual way to head off ths
ringers would be to Inaugurate a system of reg
istering the description and history of each
horss in the central offlc ot tho N. T. A. at
Hartford. '
'ibo uncertainty frequently arising concern
ing tho Identity of oven notod horses In the ab
sence of any system of keeping track of their
ownorshlp is Illustrated by the controversy
now going on between L. Netdhart of Uoboken
and Dr. W. J. Evans of Gorton, S. D., an to
which owns th pacer Guy, 2:00V This horse
will bo remembered as the gray stallion that
dofeatod Mascot nnd Flying Jib In a record
breaking rocs at Terro Haute In 1802, winning
the third, fourth, and fifth heats In 2:00,
2:082, and 2:084, after Mascot had "lowered
the world's record to 2:01 In the first and
the Jib bad won the second In 2:03.
Neldbart is now driving on the road In Hobo
ken an old whlto gelding that was recently sold
In Indianapolis as being tho original Guy, while
the South Dakota man asserts tbat he owns tbs
old-fashioned r.ickor from Mississippi. C. A.
Thompson, who has seen Guy pac many races
out West, says he believes the Hoboken horse Is
not Guy. Tho difficulty of proving Identity be
yond a reasonable doubt was strikingly Illus
trated nlso In the case ot Bob Kneebs's Interna
tional rtngcr Bethel, 2:1G14, the German Gov
ernment having spent several thousand dollars
in trying to prove In court that Nelly Kneebs
and Bothol wero one and the same animal.
Uncertainty as to when the now speedway
will bs completed, and what It will be when
opened, caused the upsetting of aS15.000deal
In horseflesh last week, line of New York's
wealthy roadltes, ho hnd received an option
on a horso of worldwide note, and who was
about to buy solely for pleasure driving on the
uncompleted spoeawny, declared the bargain off
on last Saturday, after looking Into the uncer
tain condition of things. All sorts of rumors
arc afloat concerning tho fntureot tho 83,000,
000 drive on the banks of the Harlem, which was
filanned and built to furnish a place where the
overs of the American trne of horse, tho trotter.
could enjoy their favorite pastime of driving at
speed under favorable conditions. Now that
too speedway is about finished, there is talk
thatlt may be thrown open to vehicles of all de
scriptions, from bicycles to four-in-hand coaches.
Horsemen say this would spoil ths road for
speeding, and that unless It Is to be restricted to
light driving the elevated railroad might as well
receive the right of way to Ktngsbrldge over
this route, so far as the owners of trotters are
concerned.
" Bicycles on the speedway would make fast
driving unsafe for both wheelmen and horse
men," said A. A. Bonnor the other day. "And
coaches and heavy carriages would cut up ths
soft dirt road just as badly as if you opened it
to brewery wagons and traffic of all kinds. It
wns built for light driving and should be re
stricted to that. Thers are two classes of horse
thnt rtqulro soft footing. They are trotter and
saddle horses. The latter have miles of space in
Central Park, Klvcrsiiio Drlvo, and eltewhers
restricted exclusively to their use, while there
isn't a foot of road In all Now York devoted to
the trotting horso of Amorlca or suited to hi
need 1."
Ths old Outtenberg rnce track on Union HIU
will bo headquarters this season for nearly all
ot the trainers who formerly worked their trot
ters and pacers at Fleotwood Park. 0. A.
Thompson, J. P. Llpplncott, Peter Manse and
several other well known drivers have lately
moved tboir stables there, and tb,y will bs
Iolned later by Isaac Fleming, George McBrlde,
'atchai Cherrler, John Daly, Jerome Wbelpley,
L. IL Uurd and others of the old Fleetwood con
tingent. Trainer Thompson has in his stable
tbs Western pacing gelding Thomas Edison,
2:034. by Attorney, who is expected to give a
good account of himself thl year; Mlnne
waska, a gray filly by Millionaire, 2:213,
and four others belonging to ex-Corpora-tlon
Counsel William II. Clark. Tho Kid,
a four year-old brown gelding by Director
out ot Sapphire, the daughter ot Jay Gould and
old Lucy, il:18'. Is a green pacer that promises
to beat 2:15 this year. Sunburst, a chestnut
filly by Actuary, and Tiverton, a bar gelding by
Gnllico Itex, are two green ones that Trainer
Thompson rocentlv bought for Clark out In
Iowa, The star of Peter Manee's string is tho
gray trotting gelding Marin, Jr., 2:13. one of
the sensational horses of the California circuit a
fow years ago. Monroe Salisbury campaigned
