The second annual Davenport T.
M. C. A. road race, open to amateur
riders of the world, was success,
fully run yesterday afternoon, in
spite of the showers, which decreased
the crowds of onlookers and made
the Brady street course, over the
paving, slippery and dangerous to
ride upon. The race was witnessed
by several thousana people, gatuerea
all along the route and lining both
sides of Brady street and Locust
street west of Brady, to say nothing
of scores . who watched the spurts
along the country roads, it was
won hy u. A. YVeidiein, 01 Morris
town, 4-minute man, in 35:25, and
the time honors went to Chris Boys
chau. of Davenport. His time was
33:49, about a minute less than that
of last year, but the performance
was a remarkable one. as tne various
groups into which the riders were
divided by the handicappers were
sent of! to the sound of the revolver,
shortly after 5 o'clock.
The Democrat says: -The pretti
est finish was made by A. C. Walker,
of Moline. and W. H. Hyde, of Rock
Island. Ever since Walker won the
prize in the Moline road race, Hyde
has wanted to get on a race with
him, and he did so yesterday by re
questing the handicappers to start
him with Walker, instead 01 ahead
of the Moline rider, as they would
otherwise have done. The riders
paced each other all along the
course, and it was a hot pace, too, as
their time shows. They rode down
Brady street at the finish almost neck
and neck, and Hyde won by a wheel's
length and secured the third time
