At tho meeting of tho Champion City
llicvcle club Tuesday night, after an exist
ence of between live and six j ears, dis
banded, and took action toward winding up
the affairs of the company. The rumor
' that the disbandment was caused by v. ant
j of financial support or ability, is of course
entirely unwarranted, from the fact that a
considerable amount of assets remain to be
divided among the members,
When the club Was first organized two
prime reasons were advanced for effecting
the same. One was to protect the rights of
the members, and the other to con-
vlnce the public generally that bicjtlmg1
was not a boL-li sport, but a gentlemanly j
and healthful recreation. The organ ration (

the club's continued existence, as far as the
first reason is concerned, and the other has
already been well established. Many clubs
still exist In the cities, but these are more
of a social nature. But here there h no
such necessity, as the members for the most
part live at home and can mount their
wheels at their door. These being the
farts, the organization having accomplished
all that it set out to do, it was thought best
just to disband and close up affairs.
The members of the old club mar con
tinue as members ot the National League
by simply sending on the dues to thn secre

has paid these dues. Mr. Kflkpatrick In

Before the days of railroads out here I
made money, but I can't do it now.
"I had my pile invested in the town of
Arbordnle down here, and it was About
the finest layout for a city that I ever
saw; but when tho railroad came through
the managers put their trucks right
through the town and announced that
they would have a statlou four miles west
of It. You see, they had bought a farm
down there, nnd they were going lo have
a town of their own. When I heard of
that I called on the gentlemen and remon
strated. I told them that Arbordale was
the metropolis of that section and that an
attempt to Ignore it would bring ruin to
its citizens, particularly me, but they only
laughed and wanted to know about how
much we would pay to have the station

"I was rather brash then in fact, I
hadn't so much experience as I have had
since nnd I told them we wouldn't give
them a blame cent; we'd see their old

threatened them with the loss of all the
business of Arbordale, and asked them
if they knew what a risk they were run
ning in ignoring the best town in that
section, lint they only laughed, and said
they were sony that they could not make
some arrangement with mo. It was a
rule ot modern railroading to put the sta

was not in the right place for a railroad
town, it would huve to move up out of
"Well, sir, do yon believe it, that road

Arbordale began to move. Everything
waa on wheels. The hntel went first, nnd
then tho saloons ami concert halls skipped.
Pretty soon the schoolhonse went,
then the prlvato houses, to be followed

was down there not a building remained
that could lie moved, and the only thing
that was left to indicate the existence of

the thing for all it N worth. They want
the whole hog, ns I found out later on."
