With clearing wenther to.day. as predicted
by tho Signal Hervlce. and sunshine to-morrow,
tho rain of yesterday nnd last night will
nerve only to lay the dust nud make thn roads
oxcellont for tho Sunday throng awheel. Hitl
ers, who hate been out In tho country dis
tricts all comment upon the really lino condi
tion ot the roads an I ngree that they ictiiln
little Impress of the long nnd soiero wlntor.
Touring cvcllsta desiring to know nbout routes
within a radius of fifty miles around tho city
nnd the conditions of the same cau obtain the
Information by writing to W. S. Hull. Secretary-Treasurer,
N'ew York Htato Division, L, A.
W., IM'J N'nssau street, Vnnderbllt building, In
closing a solt-dddrested envelope for reply.
As Iu many Instances It will roqulre some cor
resiondtnce toeecure up-to-date Information,
cyclists ara reauested to allow several da)s
and to apply only by mall.
The general conditions ot tho highways In
tho Brooklyn and othor portions of tho Long
Island riding district, as reported jestcrday to
the Now York Division of tho L. A. V . follow:
"Eastern Tarkway Irom tho 1'nrk Pla7-a to tho
new extension Is In decidedly poor.shano. Tho
car track, crossings of tho Coney Ilsand path
at Neptune avonuo aro so badly rutted as to be
dangerous. Thcro ate some bad holes on
Dushwlclc avonuo. The two blocks on Hun
cock ft root, between Ilroadway and Ilalph
avenue, which would, it asphalted, make a
good connecting link between the Highland
lioulevard, IlushwicK avenue nud Twenty
third street ferry, aro yet paved with rough
6tones. Klilera complain greatly aboutlthers
being no short route to tho Ilroadway ferries
from Jamaica avenuo. N'orr It Is necessary to
go ncouplo of miles out ot the way un Bed
ford or Lewis avenue to l'.nstern Parkway in
order to cet smooth riding to the beginning of
tho fluo roads ot Long Inland If thn strips on
Hushwlck avenue wero extended this detour
would be obviated.
"Outside of Hrooklvn tho roads have settled
Into tlrst-rnto condition during the past week,
the mncadaai routes being particularly good.
The Merrick road Is prime ns far as Amity
llle. Oilier popular roads that, barring rain,
will tielgood to-morrow are: Jericho l'lkello
(Jueens, Fresh Meadow road from Jnmnlca to
I lushing (second left beyond the Jamnlea
Memorial Angel). Itocky Hill road to liav bide,
Jto.lyu toad. Now Hvde Park road to Lako hue
cost and thr-ugh I.ltclo Neck to the itoslyn
road, (looil wheollng will also bo found on
the Fort Washington road, which is tho first
macadam thoroughfare turning to the loft at
Manhasset after going past the head ot Man
hassct Buy nud to tho top of tho hill toward
tho east. From (Jtioeus to Jericho tho Jericho
Pike Is rldeable, but is notgood. Tlioltoslvn
road Is good through to Fast Norwich. The
side paths and tho paths at the edges of the
roads already show '.he signs ot blcvele travel
nnd are rapidly being rolled Into nice shape.
The can of poor riding between Amltyvllle and
Bab Ion remains, but work is progressing on
the path between those villages, and the way
will soon be smooth. The Itlverlicid-Fastport
and l'atchogue-l'ort Jollerson paths aro boini
repaired. Tho path between Westhampton
and Jtlverheadis good Cyclists should rldo
with ?kutlon when In tho vicinity of Arverne
and Far Itockaway, us In that section accidents
have been reported, caused by wheelmen who
ride without lights or bells and use tho roads,
sidewalks and sldepaths without consideration
for the rights ot pedostrlaps or other cyclists."

Some changes of Interesting character may
bo expected In the amateur rules to bo pro
mulgated by tho N. C A. The points lu which
they will dlftor from the L. A. W. code are those
which have been the subject of much argu
ment. In the Ilrst place, tho definition of
"amateur" lb to be modllled from the absolute
form of the League so that tho Chairman of
the Board ot Control and men emplo)ed in n
clerical capacity In a bioclo store or on a
tiuck cau escape tho taunt of not being ama
teurs because they receive compensation. Tho
definition remains much the same concerning
what nn amateur may not do. but a'liiallfying
clause exempts such men ns secretaries and
clerks of the course. The matter ns to whether
or not an amateur may receive a blcyclo as ,i
gift Is not touched upon ith the Idea of re
viving Intercluli and intercity tournaments,
piovislon is mails whereby clubs mav tHiy the
travelling and lintel expenses of a team com
peting iu eui'h races nud may send a trainer
witli it. Amateurs must not receive nny
pecuniary benefit from a club, hut permission
will bo granted tu a club to admire a "lacing
membership" by remitting dues and furnish
ing club trainers for Its team. No amateur
after representing ono club can rldo under tho
colors of another In los than three months ex
cept In the event of the Ilrst organization col
lapsing. A story of nn interesting experience with
frlendlvl imposition, which might bo entitled
"How to get up hill eiy,";is related by a man
who has been riding tandem with aclubm.ito
all the spring He calls It a ease of hypnotism
because the triek was plaveil on him time and
again after he bad dleovercd it, although It is
plain that it might be plaved on any one of ar
dent temperament. He and his mate have
been chums for venrs. bu hare many themes,
which it Is necessary only to mention In older
to start a hit argument between them. It
was to his falling for controversy that tho man
fell a victim His own nccount of how it wns
dono Is this:
"I havo the rear scat, you know, and Fred
and I havo many a wrangle whllo riding.
Kverv now and then be would I ring up some
old topic on which he knew that I was rabid In
my opinions. He would Prod me a littlo and I
would bogln to spout, and after n bit llnd thnt
we were near the top ot a hill and that I wan
doing all the work. I soon discovered that ho
was deliberately starting me on some hobby
nt the foot of hills, knowing thnt as I warmed
un I would begin to dig harder on the pednls
ns a kind of substltuto for gesturing. Ths
fact of my gottlng on to It. howover. doesn't
seem to help me. and that Is vvhv I call it hyp
notism. He admits that he does get mo going
op hills ju.st to 'soldier' on me and laughs at
me, but be has caught me again and ugaln.
and ho has either got lo riult it or I won't rldo.
It Is a line scheme, though, and all I want is a
ehnnee to try it on somo one else. If a man Is
nil wrapped!up in what he Is'inlnklng and talk

According to the official records for N'ew
