Well-Knovm Denier Arrested for Scorch I n if VcRtrrdn) Illcyclc Nw nntl Note. Indianapolis has become a center for the manufacture of bicycles from which wheels are shipped to all parts of the world. Not only is the largest factory in the world here, but tho combined output of wheels, which are manufactured to be sold upon the reputation of their makers anil not upon the name which any purchaser sees tit to tack upon them, is larger than that of any other city. The bicycles manu factured here have already acquired fame abroad and now several local manufactur ers are giving the foreign 'trade a large share of their attention. It is interesting to read what a leading English paper had to say recently regarding the American wheel. It contained the following article: "If there is one subject more than an other that people in the cycle trade and out of it, are concerned about, it is the ptoblem that surrounds the future of the American wheel in this country. Ordinary discussions convey the idea to the average man on the street that comparison between the two classes of machines the Fnglish and Amer icanplaces the latter in a disadvantageous light, not because the design Is faulty or the mechanism inferior, but rather because the general tout ensemble of an American machine forbids the probability or even possibility of its becoming, on this side of the Atlantic, a permanent Institution. "In spite of frantic appeals, some based on patriotism, others apparently on preju dice, cyclists have not lost their heads over the matter, but have reasoned the cjuestlon out with Rritish tact, calmness and pro priety. And what have they resolved? That the outlook for '07 is not a brilliant one for the American wheel. Why should the outlook be gloomy? The field here is large and the market is broad, wide, expansive and open to all comers, and provided that what is offered for sale is good, there is no reason for suggesting that buyers will pass on and buy at the next stall or depot. It is a moot point if the patriotism of English men Is deeper than the desire to get the best article for the lowest cash price. This Is more of a democratic than a conserva tive age, and If democracy have any mean ing at all it will preserve an equality be tween man and man, nation and nation, bicycle and bicycle. I hr.s been urged that tho American wheel is not strong enough for our Kngilsh roads, but it has been proved that this assertion Is fallacious. One has only to go the round of American de pots in London and gather from the refer ences particulars and the number of repairs as against the number of machines sold, and he will be astonished at the extremely low percentage of American " wheels that have had to go to the repair shop. "If American machines be given n. fair chance they will stand alongside their ri vals; but how Is the prejudice against them to be overcome? In London, perhaps, this prejudice is infinitesimal compared with the provinces. It is astonishing, but never ertheless true, that in the country, where the air is freed from the feverish breath of those f.ghting and struggling for a place in the great competitive market of London, there is also a total absence ot anything like good favor or good will toward Amer ican bicycles. Is it prejudice, or only fear of failure, because the people are not edu cated in the knowledge of what an Ameri can machine is like? The key of the situa tion is in the hands of agents, and this In dustrious body assert that 'they daren't tackle American bicycles,' and proceed to give their reasons. A sort of panic seized them when big parcels of 'American ma chines found their way to auctioneers' depots all over the country, and were knocked down for ridiculous sums, thus stuntim? the growth of tho legitimate trade. Unfortunately those wheels were of Infe rior make, and they brought In their train wholesale condemnation of all American wheels. Put prejudice is short ltvtd. and we opine that so far as the future of the American machine in Kngland is concerned, prejudice against it will have become dead ere we have entered Into the full swing of the season of '17." "VVOHKED" TIIE mown. Henry Kothe'a IJttle Joke on the Firm Employe. Henry JCothe, secretary of the Marlon Trust Company, is enjoying a good joke on forae of his associates who are wheel riders. Tuesday afternoon he made the remark that he believed he would buy a bicycle. He was known formerly as a man who cared nothing for the wheel, and had been known to make remarks which led his friends to believe that he was opposed to It. The remark that he "guessed" he would buy a wheel caused the others to Jjecome Interested, and they began to "guy" him in advance about his learning to ridt After several of the men had had their fun at his expense Mr. Kotho declared he was willing to wager that he could mount a wheel and ride it off as soon as he took it from the store. Somebody had Insinu ated that he would better buy a "sod cut ter" to learn on. as he would break up two or three good wheels learning. The challenge of Mr. Kothe to bet that he could mount ami ride off was eagerly ac cepted. Everybody wanted some cif the "good thing," but Mr. Kothe wanted to make it a mild wager. He was llii:c to bet the expense of an evening of joli't y just a few refreshments and perhaps iittle supper later on. Everything was arrired and the crowd went over to the store of Mueller & Watson after office hours. After gome little quibbling and much examination of various wheels shown Mr. Kothe selected one. He rolled it out to the curh, and the crowd followed, and everyone was prepared to "give him the laugh" when he should fall off. To the surprise of all he rode off like an expert, made the trip around the monument and returned to demand his forfeit. Mr. Kothe's success is easily explained. Ho had slipped over to the store eiuictly Saturday and purchased the wheel and William Bennlnff had taupht him to rid it Sunday morning. A little practice Mon day morning and Monday evening and aain Tuesday morning had given him con fidence. When he took the crowd over to the store Tuesday afternoon he simply picked out his own wheel and was able to rido it easily. A HUE ST ED FOR "SC'OIM.'IUXG.' Bicycle Dealer and JleenKcr Gath ered In hy a "Hike Cop." Jap Clemens, a bicycle dealer, was ar rested yesterday for riding faster than the law allows. He was riding a tandem with another man and happened to get in the bailiwick of "Hike Cop" Holz, who was watching for scorchers on North Meridian street. Holz tried to overtake the tandem, but the riders of the machine rode on un conscious of his exertion. Holz, however, recognized Clemens and went to Ills store and arrested him. Cbmcns says he may have been oing pretty fast, but he did not realize it, the wheel worked so easily. Holz and the other policemen arc hard after the scorchers. Wherever they can be captured they will be sent in to the police station and when recognized warrants will be obtained for their arrest. Holz also ar rested Clarence McCIain. a messenger loy, yesterday for scorching. In all cases where the bicycle laws are violated the po lice have instructions to treat the violators the same as violators of other ordinances. They mut be Kent to the police station in the regular way. This means a ride in the patrol wairon unless that vehicle is over worked. It has been sugsested by a wheel man that the Chicago plan mieht be worked to an advantage. There, when a loiiccman catch s a scorcher or a person riding without a light nr license, he arrests the' wheel, not the person. He takes the wheel, seiMs it to the police station, takes tho name of the person and if tho latter does ncl appear In Police Court to answer to the charge the wheel is forfeited. Ilelleves In Innurnnce Now. Tuesday evening Charles Kramer left his new bicycle standing at the curb In front of a South Meridian-street More. He was gone but a few minutes, and when lie re turned his wheel had been stolen. For tunately for him the wheel was Insured In a bicycle Insurance company, and he at once reported his loss. Th police were also notified, but the thh-f was not cap tured. Yesterday afternoon. less than twenty-four hours after his wheel had been tto'.Mi ami only about live hours after lie reported the loss, he was riding a nevv win el which tho insurance concern had give n hlrn. The company Is made up of local busi ness men. most of whom are connected with the bicycle stores e.f the city. When Kramer reported his los time enough was taken to ascertain that his report was true. Then, according to agreement, he was fciven a wheel as good as tho one lost. The wheel stolen from him was an almost new Outing. At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon he went to the retail store of Hay & Willits in company with otllcera of the insurance company, and was allowed to select a new wheel of the same pattern as that stolen. IHcyele otes. The warm weather of yesterday gave the retail stores a lively rush. W. T. Barnes, of the Vanguard Cycle Company, is In Cincinnati on business. Ceorge II. Evans, of the Hay & Willits Company, has returned from a Western business trip. There were a number of applications yes terday for membership in the League of American Wheelmen. Consul Wallace Sherwood, of the league of American Wheelmen, is preparing a map showing the improved streets of Indian apolis. It will be furnished league mem bers. Cycle path buttons are being sold steadily by the dealers who have them. Those be coming members of the Wheeiway League before May 15 have a chance to get a high-grade- bicycle for nothing. The meeting at the Denlson House next Wednesday evening to perfect the organi zation of a wheelmen's protective federa tion ought to be largely attended. Every rider Is expected to become a member of the organization. ARRIVAL OF "KID" M'COY INDIANAPOLIS LAD WHO HAS HE C03IC A "WONDER IN THE KING. Intend to Challenge Fltzaltumon Hold the Middleweight Chnni plonnhlii of the World. After two years absence from tho city "Kid" McCoy, the now celebrated pugilist, reached the city last' night. He was ac companied by his brother and C. Henry Gensllngcr, his manager. He was seen at the Bates House shortly after his arrival. When addressed as Mr. Selby he smiled and said: "I hardly recognize my own name, it has been so long since I have heard It." Under the name of ' Charles, or "Kid" McCoy, Selby has mado a reputation In the short time he has been away from home that has scarcely been e-quale-d In tho call ing he has adopted. Two years ago he was a slender lad, and when he entered a prize ring it was at 135 pounds. Ho had little knowledge of the fistic game, but ho had a good constitution, a good head and youth. Now he is in the middleweight class, and holds the world's championship in it. He weighs 171 pounds stripped, and when trained for an encounter tips the beam ut He is only twenty-three years old, and says be is growing all th time. He ex pects in two years to be in the heavy weight class. He has a prosperous appear ance. East night ho was dressed in a modest but well-cut business suit and light spring overcoat. He wears a diamond or two which wero presents from admirers in South Africa. One of them is set In a charm, which was a gift from C. W. Flliis, tho liarnum of South, Africa. He wears a line gold stop watch, which L)ick Burge, the English pugilist, gave nim. "What is the prosiect for arranging the fight with Dan Creedon?" he was asked. "X was to have met him in Xew York last Saturday to post a forfeit and arrange pre liminaries, but ho did not show up, and I have since learned that he has sailed for England. 1 was told, however, that he would return in three weeks. I understand that it has been said that I left the coun try to avoid meeting him. That is not true, of course. I have come ten thousand milts now to meet him. The light will come off if he comes to time before one of the Xew York athletic clubs. A purse of Js.uoo has already been offered, and It may reach as hiKh us IIO.OOO before we clo?eV' "You see, it is only a question of the ca pacity of the hall, said Mr. Gensllnger. "We cun iill any hall there, but none are large enough to justify th purse which such a light ought to bring." Mr. Gen slinger is president of the Bohemian Sport ing Club, the nnest ciub in New York which gives sparring exhibitions. He was formerly president of the Olympia Club, of New Orleans. H arranged for the tirst light which Kid 'McCoy had in New York as well as the last. They were given at the Manhattan CJub. "Do you expect, to challenge Fitzsim mons?" McCoy was askeei. "Yes.

He has done it when there was more of an object in it lor him than now. If he won't consent to do this I will let the blr fellows alone until I reach their class.

The last time McCoy was in Indianapolis he was one of the principals in a little sparring match arranged at Celtic Hall, on South West street. He was the unknown. Since then he has been to South Africa, and has defeated all middleweight puptlists he has met.

Order of Mrs. llltt, National rrenlrient of the Relief Corp. The Memorial day order of Mrs. Agnes Hitt,, national president of the Woman's Relief Corps, auxiliary of the Grand Army of the Republic, was mailed yesterday by Mrs. Ida S. McBride, national secretary. The main features are as follows: Swiftly our brave battalions are march ing over tho border-land and into the shadows gray. Since last Memorial day the kimily mother we call "Death" has folded her mantle about more than seven thou sand of those who were then with us. Battle-scarred and weary, they have bivouacKed in her arms. Icy lingers touched forest and field, and the shadow of death came over them. "A sorrowing Nation shall silently weep, And spring's fairest flower?, in gratitude strew." "But glory immortal is waiting them now. And chaplets unfading shall bind even' brow." The spring time calls, and, lo! out of the seeming death comes life. Nature smiles, while sweJling buds and opening tiowers prophesy to us of a spring-time call that will awaken our loved ones. Memorial day speaks to us more and more af the unseen realities of which its beautiful forms and ceremonies are merely symbols. Gather the childre-n alut you and breathe its spirits into tlulr hearts. Teach them the grand eur symbolized by the "Old Flag." "Its stripes of red. eternal dyed with heart streams of all lands, Its white, the snow-capped hills, that hide in stoim their upraised hands; Its blue, the ocean waves that beat round freedom's circled shore; Its stars, the print of angel's feet that burn forevermore." Make them worthy to be its guardians and heirs to the glory for which it stands. Give loving remembrance to those who sleep in unknown graves, and to the true hearted women who ministered to the sick and distressed. And. withal, give kindly thought to those of eur own number who luive been called from their labors of love and mercy. As has been the custom, corps are re quested to unite with posts in attending ell vine worship on the Sunday preceding Me morial day. Contributions for the decoration of graves in Southern cemeteries should be forward ed nt once through department treasurer to national treasurer.
