A HARD XAN TO BEAT.
We suggested in our last issue that
the Democrats would have to take up
the fight against Rough Rider Roose
volt's eligibility to the Governorship
of New York.
The New York World said the
morniog atter Rossevelt was nomi
nated: "The question of Mr. Roose
Velt's eligibility was jauntily put aside.
It may, however, came up again in
the courts if he shall happen to re
ceive a majority of the votes. And
should the courts declare him ineligible,
as many able lawyers think that the
must, * * then all the votes caet
for him will be void and the man
having the largest number of valid
votes will be elected and seated."
This we think will be a strong point
for the Democrats to use,1 and they
will need many strong points to de
feat the distinguished Roagh Rider.
The Democrats will make a great
mistake if they attack Roosevelt as a
man. He has distinguished himself
In whatever position he has been
placed. He has shown remarkable
executive ability, go3d jadgment, and
ibdependence of character, he is ag
gressive as well as progressive, and is
a man of a great deal 4of force, and the
attachment of the Rough Riders, an
organization of very divei se and
heterogenous elements, proves that he
is a man of considerableoerional mag
We think to) that the Dem-crats
'ivl make a great blander if they
shall follow the examples of the World
by asking the voten of New York to
repudiate Roosevelt on acciunt of the
sentiments expressed id .the following
language in his Life of Bent->n:
New. Ydrk has alwa) s hid a low
politial standard, one or the other of
its great party and factional organi
zations, and of~en both or all of them.

bodies of exeessively unwholesome
This souds like the th >n ghts of a
man who is unot afraiid to speak the
truth, and it ia apt to imrests the ini
telligent and thoughtful and relective
citizen as true. Such a citizou is more
apt to be attracted towards thbe author
than driven from him for having had
the manliness and boldness to publish
it. The World seeks to play the dema
gogue act, and asks: "If this is not
pleasant reading for 'the boys' who
were commanded to j'whoopit up for
Teddy"? The daiger, Lowever, is
that many of the quiet voters, who do
not "whoop," but whose votes count,
may regard the extract as still another
strong evidence of Roosevelt's strong
individuality, often a very strong fac
tor in a candidate's favor especially
in unsettled political conditions such
as seem to be the c .e in New York.
The Democrats had Letter let Roose
velh's books "'ore, it they cannot find
something more open to criticism than
The chief objection to Roosevelt is
that he is a Republican. Ilis Repub
licanism and his being a candidate of
the Platt ma chine should be made the
prominent issue against him.
XE. OAKM.AN'S NEW WHEEL.
He Tells a Reporter for the News and
Courier why he Thinks ii. invention
an Imuportant One-Agem Here
Hetos and Courier.
Mr. Oakman, who came to Chtarles
ton some days ago with a model of a
bicycle with improved driving gear,
is still in the city and proposes to get
subscriptions to the capital stock of a
company, the object of which will be
to put the improved wheels on the
market. Mr. Oakmtan is a Dative of
Chappell's,,S. C , and during his stay
in Charleston his new wheel has been
examined and approved by Mr. Geo.
J. Lannean, agent, Mr. J. H. Rast,
superintendent of the Southern Cycle
Company, Messrs. Livingston & Co.,
agents, and Mr. M. P. Mickey, master
machinist of the South Carolina and
In speaking of his wheel Mr. Oak
"With the view of improving the
bicycle I carefully studied it in detail,
and until the crank was reached I
found no room, in oay opinion, for im
provement that would cause any radi
cal change or be of real merit. But
the crank revealed many serious de
fects and a field for unlimited improve
ment. After a careful study of these
I became convinced that the crank
machines had reached their limit of
usefultess, from the fact, as all riders
and experts are aware, it is impossible
to ever increase the leverage beyond a
Gi or 75 inch crank, because the legs
cannot conform to or accommodate
themselves to a larger circle than 12 or
14 inches. Therefore they can never
be used for any other purpose, nor can
a higher rate of speed be generated
than is now accomplished. To prove
that there is a great advantage in the
increase of leverage, suppose we at
tempted to drive a wheel with a 2-inch
crank; it would be found so impracti..
.cable as to render it a failure, but ex
tend it to 6 or 7inches and a practical
and useful machine is the result. Now
if there is such indisputable advantage
in this slight it 3 ase, why should
therenot bemi going further? Well,
there it, and bey oid any ihadow of
doubt, as my model demonstrates, but
it is impractical to reach it by means
of a crank, and therefore its neful
ness ceases at this point.
"Again, the leverage of the crank,
all know, is not c.astant. It begins
at zera, a point known among me
chanics as the dead centre, it then in
creases until the right anglepoint is
half down, when the full or maximam
leverage is 1nazhed, but it begins at
once to lose again until it is lost at the
bottom, where all is lost. This being
the case with each sti Ake of c -.ch foot
in making the full : zvolution of the
craLk shatt, the rr cl ie dep3nds en
tirely upon mom-nt, n or sneed in
overcoming these weak poin , and
while this is not felt much on i ooth,
level roads, 'the defects remain all the
same and reveal themselves very
quickly when a steep hill or sand is
attempted. Again, the pedals revolv
ing or decribing a full circle, it is im
possible to apply the weight of the
rider toward propelling, except in a
very slight degree. In my invention
I claim te have completely overcome
all these defects, and open a field for
unlimited usefulness. Any length of
lever desired can be used. They work
automatically, always at their greatest
power, and always dIrectly beneath
the rider, in consequence of which
every pound of his weight becomes a
motive or propelling power almost
equivalent to steam or any other motor
for weight, and does not tire. With
levers of the proper length and the
combined weight and muscular effort
of a man of ordinary size it can be
made to easily take the place of light
delivery wagons about town or the
transportation of passengers to and
from railroad depots, and for many
purposes that is beyond any crank.
"BeEides this a very much higher
rate of speed can be obtained and
maintained than would be possible for
a crank wheel. Sixteen or eighteen
miles an hour would be fair speed for
this lever machine. In fact it could be
driven faster than it could be possible
for a man to stay in the saddle. Its
application in other useful ways is
