Things begun Willi ;i rush this morning,
awl a great deal of unfinished work -was
gotten in order.
Two new numbers were admitted at

the delegates were most agreeably sur'

It was originally Intended by the enter

delegates to the theater tonight, but It was
finally decided to show tlieni the sights ot
the city instead. They w HI be driven aliout
in carriage, and will take iu all the prln
.lal points of interest.
There Is a great deal of talk around the
hc-adquartcrs of the visiting delegates
against the parade. There are not a great
many or the union here, probably not more
than thirty, and It is thought that the show
ing would be small, as many would not turn
out for the parade. This In itself would fall
to make a good impression.
The local union Is strongly in favor of
the parade, but as the visitors do not ex
press a great deal of enthusiasm. It will.
in all probability, be omitted from the pro
gramme. The orficcrs and delegates or the conven
tion w II! be photographed tomorrow.

HOW TO GET UEVENUE.
Many or the Republicans who havegiccn
their views on tins matter hae expressed
the belief that the additional revenue needed
should come from Internal rctenuc sources,
mentioning Ilipiora and tobacco specl.illy
as tlie subjects that ran bear further tax
ation. E-Scnator Manderson, who Is litre in
connection with the sugar caes, although
not a member of the next Congress, Is an
influential memberof the Ucpuhlican party,
and his experience in Congress and Ills well
known ability and careful conservatism
make bis opinion worth quoting on any
matters relating to public affairs.
Gen. Manderson recognizes that additional
revenue must be raised to meet the public
necessities, but does not believe any at
tempt should be made to change existing
He says the additional revenue required
should come from Increased taxes on liquors

New York, Nov. 12. "Two or three ot
them took me around Orange and asked in
which house and lot I -would like to have;
but I sild no Inducement could make mu
break my word to the Crescents."
Tills Is the startling statement made by
Phil King, the famous football player, to a
reporter yesterday afternoon. The per
sons he referred to are members of the
Orange Athletic Club, and, according to
King's story, were ende-avoring to securo
binias a. member of the Orange football
team, offering him In the way of Uiduce
ment any house and lot in Orange which
he might pick out.
The Crescent Athletic Club officials have
all along claimed that the actions of the
Orange Athletic Club were prompted by
spite, as well as fear of King's playing abil
ity, and the testimony of the great I'rlncc
tonlan Is also to tbb effect. Throughout
the controversy between the two clabs ho
has steadily refused to be interviewed
upon the matter, saying tbnt-tbe Crescents
were looking nfler his Interests. Hut yes
terday, when told that the Orange man
agement denied having made any overtures
to him to Join their football team, he burst
out nltti the statement that the Jersey
men had been endeavoring to brilie him
to break his promise to the Crescents and
Join the Orange tea in.
Withal the player refused to deny tho
charge that he has been paid for coaching
the Princeton team. It Is understood that
the Orange Athletic Club relics tqion the
evidence of Edward Munn to convict King.
Mr. Munn was the manager of the Prince
ton team at the ieriod King is accused of
.receiving payment for coaching the "Ti
gers." It was said last night, in view of
the fact that Mr. Munn cannot,. or will not,
testify against, King, that th Orange Ath
letic Club is willing to compromise the

Joe Start Says CiimnilncH Pitched the
First Cnrve B11U.
Joe Start, the famous old baseball pl.15 er,
was asked the" other day whether there
was any doubt about Arthur Cummings
being the inventor of curve pitching, and
"No doubt whatever. I remember all
alsiut the clrcumstanccas I was brought
up in Brooklyn and was playing around the
same lots with Cummings from ISCC to '70.
"Cummings was the first to get tlie
curve, and Bobby Matthews the first to
get a perfect raise ball. The latter didn't
curve a ball until he changed his delivery,
when everybody thought he had given out,
for the Worcester club, along about 1881 .
"Cummings was -fooling the boys with
a perfect curve long before any other
pitcher could get it. When Cincinnati
faced the 'boy wonder," for that was the
name given Cummings in 1879, they could
not touch him, and won by a score or 4 to 2
rrom the Stars a great score for those
days; but how that old Cincinnati crowd
could Held. .
"The boy's had a chance In those early
days. I think every one of the Atlantic's
wasakid. They may not have had the game
down so fine as uow, but there was a
good deal more honest enthusiasm aliout
it. Indeed, for a few years, at least, we
could hardly have been called pmfession
als. We didn't get any salaries, I remem
ber very well, for three or four years."
"When was that interesting feature In
troduced?" "About 18C0, as near as I remember."
"How did the salaries start out?"
"Well, the managers didn't reel the ne
cessity of any $2,400 limit I'll take my
oath to that."

Chicagoan Claims That He Start

Falt-Kln the Year 'in .Mirny Patent
Taken Out for Queer Wheels.
In view of the tremendous spread of the
bicycle craze, It Is Interesting to know that
John William Tyler, n rcsidi nt of Chicago,
claims the distinction of being the first
man who ever rode a wheel in America.
Mr. Tyler was born in Danville, Pa., in
1SIW. At the age of ten years lie moved
to Wllkesbarre, Pa. Here u enjojed the
wild rapture or seeing a circus. The pink
lemonade, the sawdust ring, the tights and
spangles, the ground and lofty tumbling,
had Indescribable charms for him, am" finsl
him with the ambition or being a gymnast.
He accordingly hrcainca pupil in a gjtu
nasluin which was opencsl In Wllkesbarre
by Washington Donaldson, the lil-fateil
aeronaut who was alternant drowmsl. In
company with a newspaper man, by his bal
loon railing into Lake Michigan.
Oue or the flirt acrobatic arts that Don
aldson taught young Tyler was that Of
light-rope walking, and the pupil acquired
such proficiency that on July 4, 1803, he
gave a public exhibition, walking a rope
stretiheil three stories high across .Market
street, Wllkebarre. fioon afterwanl, how
ever, he gave up the tight-rope business,
and was apprenticed to a jeweler.
During his apprenticeship he was a read
er of the Kclcntlfie American, in which
magazine he one clay came across a para
graph which Interested him n-ry much. It
dealt with tlie improvements made to the
bicyi le, or velocipede, as it was then culled,
by the brothers Hanlon, who were then sur
prising Paris by their exploits on the new
machine. The paragraph was illustrated
by the picture of a man r Ming a bicycle.
ALL OVKK TBI! EARTH.
Bicycling is no longer an accomplishment
practically confined to gymnasts, like the
Hanlon brothers. Its lotarlcs swarm all
over the earth, penetrating even tlie wildest
deserts, exploring remote aud uue-auny dis
tricts, and driving the whole world bicycle
mad from Greenland's icy mountains to
India's coral strand.
There is no talk now or the adaptation
of a "side saddle" to the bicycle, as was
nee-essary to salt the genteel notions of the
ladies or tweuty-sc en years ago. The new
woman in her bloomers hasdiios-cd of that
question by going boldly astride her wheel.
At this tlmu the riding ot a bicyih- was
onsidercd rather as a gymnastic exercNc,
to be undertaken only by the very skillful.
Thus It appeared to Mr. Tyler, and heat mi-e
ordensl a vcl-nlK-de from tile advcrtUcd
manufacturer, named Calvin Witty, or No.
638 Broadway, New York, who had pur
1 based the patent from the Haiilous. faaid
"After having waited about three months
the velocipede came at List. It came C. 0.
I)., with a bill for $C0, and a letter from
the manufacturers stating that was the
first one they had made; that I had given
thciu their rirst order, and the cause for
the long delay vas their nit tieiug n-ady
to manufacture. From the illustration ot
the machine I thought It would e-o-t only
$10 or $13, anil I was not ready to pay G0.
"A friend, however, came to tuy aid and
paid the bill, telling me that I could give
exhibitions on the machine and in that way
soon lie able to pay biiu back, which I did,
there liclng plenty ot lieoplc t hen in America
willing to pay money for the privilege of
wving a man ride a velociiiclc.
"That night I tout tho wheel oit of the
cxprc-S office alsjJt 0 o'clock, and pro
ccedcsl, without Instmttlons, to learn how
to rido It, and 1 managed to ride It about
a square. I hired an Inclosed arena and
is-oplepald to i-ome in aud see me ride, and
that fall I established a velocipede school
A i:emarkable ATTRACTION.
"My whe-el attracted much interest, be

rc-rerence to it appeared in a good many
newspapers and invitations imred in upon
me to come nnd give exhibitions lu several
places, which I atterward did, proving that
wheelridlng was a remarkable attraction
and paying accomplishment. Alas, people
"My wheel -was something entirely new
to the country. People couldn't understand
it. I remember one day, win n I was -wheel-In!
between Wilkesbarre and Pittston, I
struck a high bill and had to dismount and
push my wheel. A young girl with some
cutlery in her hand ran out of a house and
hailed me, offering mu a Job; she took me
lu lie a scisors-grlnder.
"At Hie county fair of 1S0! I ran a
bicycle race with a man who bad made
hiso wn machine. It was an exciting con
test. In presence or an enthusiastic multi
tude. It was a mile race over a gravel
track. I won the race, doing Hie mile iu
thirteen minutes yes, thirteen nunute

"In conjunction with Commodore Beau-
Eeant, the first man that ran an iiouciau
across the ocean, I imented a wheel that
was never put on the market. It consi-tcd
of two large wheels, with a seat slung be
tween them, the motion of the machine
being governed by a crank worked by tlie
hand. After the Hanlon patent there were
many other patents taken out on veloci
pedes for lioth land and water, butsoniehow
the wheeling practice dropped off until
tlie Invention or the "ordinary wheel." or
large-wheeled bicycle, about 1SS0, which
was in turn succeeded by the present bicy
cle, wltli chain and sprocket; solid rubber
tires gave place to the cushion tires and
tlie pneumatic; Improvements or various
kinds have been crrccted, und very soon the
nioilve power will not be regulated by the
feet, but by oil and electricity.
"Having made up my mind to complete
my trade as a Jeweler, I gave up the ve
locipede business until 18U2, when 1 took
to the bicycle again. I have ridden a good
deal since, but I'll never be paid for doing
so any more."
