ROAD RAGE AT COJYIO
OXE OF THE MOST EXCITING COX
TESTS FOR THE TIME PRIZE
MARTIN FINISHED IN FRONT
"WITH CARMICHAEL. SECOND AND
SON HAD A WALKAWAY
FOR THE FIRST PLACE PRIZE.
Race Watt Robbed of Some of Its
Charms by MlgmanaKement and
Poor Police Supervision.
Partly, perhaps, to the incompetency
of the timers, partly to the superabun
dance of "officials," who had nothing to
do but wear badges, and partly to the
inefficiency of the police protection at
critical times, yesterday's road race at
Lake Como was not the success that
the weather promised.
The crowd, however, saw an excit
ing contest, and that was all it wanted,
unless it was to see some particular
favorite win, and then it went away
happy, for at the close the scorers were
tied in such a hard knot, that the first
tidings, probably, most of the riders
will have of the results, appears in the
Globe this morning.
The track was not an ideal one, and
the sharp corners of the workhouse
made macadam road punctured more
than one tire before the race was done.
The day, however, was ideal, and rid
ers, as well as spectators, went into
the event with an enthusiasm that rose
superior to all deficiencies in the man
agement of the race.
For the first time prize there was
one of the prettiest races that has ever
been seen in the Northwest in a sim
ilar event. The scratch men on the
card were John B. Todd, John Lind
berg. Charles A. Palm, I. T. Dugan,
D. T. Carmichael, the Birds and W. J.
Martin. S. E. Johnson was also en
tered as a scratch man, but through
some misunderstanding he was started
with the minute and a half handicap
class. It made no difference in the re
sult, however, as he dropped out at the
end of the fifth lap.
They got away just before the largest
handicap class had made its first cir
cuit of the lake. The Birds did not start,
but the other six were loosely bunched
when they finished the first lap. Llnd
berg was ahead. Palm, second; Car
michael. third; Todd, fourth; Dugan,
fifth, and Martin, sixth.
At the second lap, however, Palm and

Carmichael had both gone ahead of
Lindberg. Martin was fourth, well
back, and Todd was quite a bit behind.
Around they went again, and when
the scratch men showed up again In
the bunch, Carmichael had shaken his
former companions, and his blue shirt
was out of sight in the turn before the
rest of the scratch men crossed the
Palm was second, Lindberg third,
and Martin fourth, while Dugan had
dropped out, and Todd was so far be
hind that Christianson, who had been
given a handicap of five and three
fourths minutes, had passed him. That
threw Todd practically out of the race.
The finish of the fourth lap showed
new changes, however, for Carmichael
had lost his lead and was trailing the
scratch lot, with the exception of Todd,
who was hopeless-dy behind. Palm was
first, Lindberg second and M*artin
third. This order was preserved all
the way round, but on the finish of the
sixth lap positions had again been
changed somewhat, and while Palm
was still in the lead, Carmichael had
taken his second wind and was a close

berg dropped back to fourth.

aivl Carmichael both outfooted Palm,
and while Martin passed both the oth
ers, and made first, Carmichael passed
Palm and held his second place. They
were all in a bunch at the finish, and
had the race been run in an open
track, there might have been some
pretty cycling done in the last hun
dred yards. As it was, however, as
soon as the place men, who finished
first, crossed the tape, they dismounted
and made their way back followed by
small boys and children of a larger
growth until Ott track at the tape was
congested with pedestrians and ped

the seven laps not being quite enough to
make up the 16 miles. When the first
bunch passed the finishing stand,
Christianson had pulled ahead of his
class, the 5:45 handicap class, and he
was never headed, but even beat out
Todd, of the scratch men, as he had
nearly made the lap in the time of his
handicap, before the last bunch was
started. Ferguson led the second
bunch and Paul Mayer got off in front
of the 4:30 class.
Adolf Voges led the four minute
speeders, and Noble set a pace for the
3:30 outfit. Harris opened the ball for
the three minute party, and J. W. Sam
was at the front of the 2:30 bunch.
Scheiber and Sudhelmer paced the. two
and one-thirty classes respectively.
After the first lap, however, none of
them were ever close enough to Chris
tianson to make that part of the race
even interesting. Wiseman, who was
also in the 5:45, or largest handicap
class, made a good showing for second,
but after the third lap, he had dropped
back to third, being succeeded by Fred
Johnson, who kept the place there
The most exciting period of the race
for the audience was at the finish of
the fourth lap, when just after crossing
the tape, H. E. Gooch and J. Boyd Wil
son collided, and went in a heap in the
track. They were closely followed by a
double quartette of scorchers, and it
was with difficulty that these threaded
their way through the maze of wheels
and mangled humanity without doub
ling up the accidents, but they finally
got through and the crowd breathed
easier. Both Gooch and Wilson left the
race, one for fouling, the other because
he had had enough.
W. H. Elbert, one of the two colored
entries, went into a ditch on the east
side of the lake on the first lap, and
lost some ground, but he held to it to

NOTES OF THE RACE.
The time was excellent considering the fact
that every rider had to slow up at some of
the sharp turns on account of the crowd that
narrowed the track.
It was observed that while the race was
called for 4 o'clock, the start was made at
4:22, while the spectators were broiled In the
Freddy Bryant, the estate master of Minne
sota Republicanism, had Moses Clapp been
elected, was there with a pair of checker-
board stockings and * badge marked "offi

There were thirty-five officials on the pro
gramme, and there were at least twice that
many "officious" personages with or without
badges, who clustered themselves on the Im
provised press stand and troubled the time
takers. That was one reason why a number
of young men who put up good races were
overlooked in the flniah.

SOCIAL. CYCLE NOTES.
Laurel Club's Fete Postponed Until
The lawn social which was to have
been given by the Laurel Cycle club
Thursday evening, will take place next
Thursday, July 30. The principal
feature of the evening will be the St.
Paul Marine band, of thirty-eight
pieces-, which will furnish the music.
This band will undoubtedly be the
leader in G. A. R. events during the
encampment, and the rehearsal at the
Laurel club house a few days ago was
listened to with much pleasure. Should
it rain next Thursday evening, however,
it would be impossible to properly take
care of the large gathering that is as
surred, and the affair will accordingly
have to be again postponed. It is
hoped that the weather will prove
favorable this time, as the club has
been singularly unfortunate in this
A large pennant has been donated to
the Laurel Cycle club by Lee Seymour,
the Fowler agent, and will probably
be unfurled from the new flag staff for
the first time next Thursday.
Thursday evening was ladies evening
at the Capital City Cycle club and the
house was brilliantly lighted. There
was a large number of ladies called
during the evening, and a programme
of piano and mandolin music was
given by A. L. Eggert and Tom Davis.
Ben Hawks gave some guitar selec
tions. The club is now possessed of a
handsome Schiller piano.
Invitations have been issued by the
Capital City Cycle club for a social
entertainment to be given for the young
women who assisted the club in its
recent lawn fete. The programme will
consist of vocal and Instrumental selec
tions. There will be piano, guitar and
mandolin music and a minstrel per-
formance will follow. Refreshments
will be served and dancing will bring
the evening to a close.

watch gotten up for the express purpose of
running slow, running say eighty seconds to

A San Francisco man, who thinks there
is much existing apprehension about Tom
Sharkey, writes of him as follows: 'So far
the Marine has not delivered a clean knock
out blow on any of his opponents. He
rushes them, roughs them, throws them,
about, and, having such wonderful strength,
he weakens them until they can't hit. I don't
want to detract from him, however, for to
tell the truth, he is a very dangerous man
for any hand puncher that will attempt to
rough it with him. He has only a slight
knowledge cf boxing, but understands suffi
cient to place himself in an extremely awk
ward position to get at. Standing with his
feet far apart and bending over to the right
at the first offensive movement of an oppo
nent he lowers his head and comes in with
a rush. He covers his jaw against uppercuts
with his right, swings his left with tremend
ous force wherever he thinks his man's
head ought to be, and, having got against
his opponent, with his head still tucked away,
swings his right in any old direction, trust
ing to luck to -make connections. This move
over in a wink, Sharkey has his opponent
round the waist in the cofls of a baa constrict
or, from which the clutched man soon learns
what a roughing from the sailor means. To
have any sort of conception of what the sailor
looks like, you would have to see him.
