THE aiOBNlKQ- TlH,ES5rjgUpY, MAY 9t 1897.
652 I'cnna. Ave.
The rain of last Sunday played havoc
with the plane of the various c cling clubs
for their Sunday runs. Though there -was
little acrual rala during the day, the
downpour of Saturday night made the
roads practically Impassable for a bicy
tle, so theTiders had to confine themselves
to "asphalt" runs.
The race meets at International rark
en the 22d and SOth of this month continue
to "be the principal topic of interest among
The meet on the 22d lias been arranged by
Its managers for the purpose of getting a
line on the men who are to ride this J ear,
nd incidentally to obtain some idea of
-what may be expected of them at the big
Decoration Day meet. The program for the
meet on the 22d has not been fully arranged
as yet, but it is known that nearly all of
the speedy men of the District, as well as
several visitors, will compete.
C. M. McKenzle, the L. A. W. consul of
Charlottesville, Va., will come up for the
meet, and will race on a tandem with
Bayard T. Wrenn, of this city, as a partner.
McKenzie a1U also bring up several of the
speedy riders from the University of Vir
ginia who will be seen in the races.
The big meet on Decoration Day prom
ises to be the eent of the year in local
racing circles. Eiders from Baltimore
and Philadelphia are sending in their en
tries, and the field will undoubtedly be one
of the largest even seen In a local race.
The handsome trophies and generous cash
prizes are attractive enough to bring
riders from all sections.
A match race between Fred Elms and
John Lawson, the "Terrible Swede," will
undoubtedly be one of the attractions
These two men will race in Baltimore on
next Tuesday, and whatever the result may
he, another race -will probably be desired
by at least one of the men.
There is a great deal of interest In the
ihowlng of the local amateurs for the
coming season, and as they will nearly
all compete at the Decoration Day meet
a pretty good estimate of their chances
may be had. Many think Fred Schadewlll
not be able to hold las title of District
champion against the field of newcomeis,
but that remains to be seen. Schadc is
riding In splendid form, as his work at
the Georgetown College games proved,
and with regular training be will proD
ably display his old-time speed.
Tho New York Journal's cycling editor
yesterday published an article stating that
Fred Schade bad been matched to race
Bay Dawson, the speedy rider of Colum
bia College. This is news to Schadc, but
bo is not averse to racing Dawson or any
other amateur in good Btandlng.
