It is extremely doubtful, from present
Indications, that a joint Potomac River
regatta will be held this bumtner. The Co
lumbia Athletic Club is the only one of the
three which has appointed a committee
to confer upon the subject. The Analostan
Club, itisaid.ls lukcwurmln the matter,
and ha not yet decided what action will
be taken by it Heretofore It has always
been among the first to appoint a com
mittee. This season, it appears, the row
ing men will not undergo the hardships
or traiiilnn, but will, with the other mem
bers of the club, enjoy the delights of
pleasure rowing and barge parties. For
thelalUr, this club has long since earned
an enviable reputation, for its affairs are
always of the most delightful character.
If the report be true that Its crews will
not be seen on the water In local and ether
contests thl season, It is a pity, for the
A. B. C has always rowed in excellent
form and given all comers a hot argument
for first place All this and more may be
said of theold rotomacClub.up to this year
one of the most active In Southern waters
This club, loo, has expressed a doubt as
to whether It will take an active part in
rowing contest this season. It, too, it
1b eald, will devote Itself to pleasure row
and the giving of Its usual very enjoyable
series of summer hops at the big boat
bouse. It is sincerely hoped by a large number of
admirers of the grand sport that the re
port, "that the holding of a regatta Is
doubtful,'' is without foundation, and that
nil three clubs will get together soon
and arrange for the annual open regatta
pleasure to enter.
"With the two older clubs out of active
rowing, It will leave only the "Winged
Arrow' to represent the river In out-of-town
regattas, and with a regatta here
cut out tnlsclub, too, will devote most of
Its time to pleasure rowing, a great deal
of which It would have sandwiched In
anyway. It is proposed, at any rate, to
make the social feature at the C. A C.

as reported by the committee having 1 1 Jn
charge. Several new features for the 1 et

In tho revision and met with the hearty
approval of all tho members.
The reslguation of George A. Manefleld
as president was accepted, and a vote cf
thanks was given the retiring officer for
valuable services rendered the club. After
considerable di.vcusslon it was decided 1o
postpone the election of his successor until
a later date. E. P. Gooding and Fred Wies
bader, two very eneigetic members, wore
unanimously elected to fill existing va
cancies on the board of directors. As the
new constitution provides for only two
club meetings each year, a sreclal meet
ing will be called shortly by Vice Presi

Mansfield There are several likely can

Georgetown 'Varsity AthlctcH.
William Foley, trainer of the George
town 'Varsity athletes, Is one of the
busiest men In town as he dally has out
on the track more than two score aspirants
for athletlo honors, and out of the lot he
1b developing some very faot material.
There is so much good material, especially
among the track men, that the makeup of
the team for Mott Haven has not yet beeii
decided upon. In order to make proper
selections, trials In the several events will
be held during the coming week and It
will then be decided who will go.
The piohabilities are that the following
will represent Georgetown at the big
intercollegiate meet at Mott Haven: Ber
nard, J. Wefers, of course, for the 100
aud 220 yards; Lyons, for the hulf-mlle
run; either Nagle or McGIrr, for the mile;
Smith, in the weights and hammer. Cody
Is among the strong possibilities, as his
excellent running in the college- meet
showed that he is a cool and strong runner.
Fox will golf his leg Is in shape by the
time t(he team gJes. He Is now laid up
with a lame leg. The track and field
games "will be held at Mott Haven on next
Saturday and the blue and gray teams
will go up to New York on the day before.
The Intercollegiate blcjcle races do not
come off until June 1, at New York. In
these events Fred Schnde, "who won the
championship there last year, will, with
Whitney, and perhaps one other, ride under
the Georgetown colors.
Wefers, the king of sprinters, Is in
splendid physical condition and moving in
stronger form than ever before, and if
the weather Is favorable and the track
prime, this holder of a number of world's
records In the sprints, "will cause the multi
tude to open wide Its eyes, for he will try
for new records. "His movement from the
very start Is a grand combination of grace,
speed, and strength, aud? Jhls 'equal has
not even been promised' anywhere this
season. "The faster he gets the more
modest he is about it," was the expression
of one of the college boys last week. His
success has never given him tbfc big head.
His grentest pleasure, next to his own
work, is that of coaching novices and
experienced men as wellr He is master
and king of the track. 1 '
William E. Fox is one of Georgetown's
most promising sp.lnters. He enetered col
lege in the fall of '95 and hails from Cin
cinnati, where he is held in high regard In
social nnd athletic circles. Trainer Foley
considers him one of the most natural run
ners he has ever handled, and lays great
store m his future. His running in the
'Tennsy" relay races "Was splendid, he
covering hjs quarter in 51 seconds. He is
a hard worker and trains earnestly and
honestly. He strained a tendon in the
bunch of muscles above the knee of his
right leg while making the turn in the 220
yards in a trial for time on Monday last.
He is slowly mending and It is hoped that
his injury "will not prove 50 serious as to
prevent his competing at Mott HaTen next

The big cyole race meet at International
Park on Decoration Day continues to be
the principal topic of interest among the
The meet, as is well known, la under the
competent direction of the Cycle Board of
Trade, and the business methods which
they have adopted in preparing .for the
event indicate that it will be a success.
The entries are coming in from all sections
of the country, and among them are some
of the best known riders in the East. Miller,
of Vineland.N. J., and Church, or Philadel
phia, were two of the earlier entries, while
thnseof Al NcuhaiiB, of Buffalo, N. Y.; Car

It is a toss up which rider will win this
The managers of the race desire to call
special attention to the fact that the
entries close tomorrow (Monday) evening.
Many of the local riders who doubtless in
tend to enter, have put off doing so, and if
they fall to get in their entry tomorrow they
will most assuredly get left. The list of.
entries is already so large that there Is
no probability of an extension being grant
ed. A feature of the meet will be a match
race between J. TV. Childress and II, Mich
ael, both of the Government Printing Of
fice. There has been a long, standing
rivalry between these two riders, and the
large cycllngcontingentof tbatdepartment
are keenly interested In the event. It Is
rumored that a considerable sum of money
has been wagered on the race.

was secured at the league hottl in Rock

Wednesday's run to Cabin John was a
big success, being attended by thirty-three

Cycle Laws At the present time there
exists in this city and in almost every city
in the United States separate laws for
bicycles which are different from laws
governing other vehicles
This should not be, a carriage whether a
private one, for hire, wagon for hire,
pleasure, light, or heavy draft, should be
under the same restrictions which control
the cycle. A gong and a lamp should be
used on all vehicles. The same speed
restrictions should be placed mi all vehicles,
and the occupants should be arrested and
fined the same as riders are now fined.
The League of American Wheelmen In
tend to legislate for a uniformity of laws
m the different States and have already
started the ball rolling in the State of New
York. The act Just passed in that State
is entitled: An act to regulate the use of
bicycles and similar vehicles, and to re
quire uniformity of ordinances affecting
The second section of the act provides
that no city, town, or village In the State
of Now York shall have the power to make
laws respecting the use of cycles except 38
provided In the act nnd it further provides
that the main part of the aGt applies to
all vehicles and not exclusively to cycles,
and regulations requii lug lamps and alarm
bells if made at all mu'-t include all vehicles
It would be a good idea for the Commis
sioners of the District to require all ve
hicles to follow the same restrictions and
require that the same police who pay so
much attention to cyclers should at least
pay the same attention to regulation

Reguttn Committee Protests Against
Chunges in the Course.
Poughkecpsie, N- Y., May 22. The
change made yesterday In the courses for
tiie Harvard- Yale-Cornell 'varsity andfresh
man races, has brought out a vigorous
protest from the local regatta committee.
Thomas H. Ransome, of the committee,
said this morning that the decision to
row upstream, necessitated the survey of
two entirely new courses and promised to
lead to considerable confusion in the
arrangements which must be made to send
the races off smoothly.
Ab the members of the commUtce are
not paid nnd are doing their work simply
to help the colleges, they feel that an
extra and unnecessary burden is being
laid on them. In order to row the 'varsity
race downstream, over the old course. It
is ouly required to postpone the event
from Friday, June 25, to the following
Monday. Chairman Booth, of the local
committee, said last night that he had
made up his mind to resign.

many points br smashing the ball Into
the net Davidson aud Paret played a
carefi'l. steady game, and the set finally
went to them by a score of 6-2.
The 8'.&ind set went to Driscoll and
Goodfellow, after a hard fought match, by
a score of 6-4.
Tuc third set was byallodd3 the cleverest
of the match. Driscoll made some mar
velous returns of bard smashes and hU

distinguished himself In several heavy
volleyinglnterchanges, but the two younger
players could not win the set against the
steady work of their seasoned opponents.
This set went to Davidson and Paret by
a score of 61.
The fourth match was long drawn out
and, although Driscoll and Goodfellow
