THE PASSING THRONG.
' "One of the most expressive words I have run
across," Mid A. D. Lockett, a mining: man of Ross
land, B. C "Is 'pelleo,' of the
"AH! BOSS, Zulu tongue, which Is in general
PELLEO, use In South Africa. It Is literally
PELLEO." translated Into English as 'done
for. The first time I ever heard it
firmly Impressed It on my mind. The Kaffirs are
awful scrappers, and there is almost sure to be
a fight when rival parties run across each other.
Christmas Day, and In fact all holidays, are gen
erally marked by rows, and for that reason are
known there as 'fight day*.' The two races which
most bitterly hate each other are the Bechuanas
and the Eharagongs. The way the Kaffirs fight Is
to form in long lines, which gradually approach
each other. Then suddenly a man will dart out
of one of the lines, and rushing up almost within
striking distance of the other, will jump up and
down with derisive expression of face and gesture,
all the while pojring a stream of vituperation upon
the enemy and will finally retire to his own ranks.
This manoeuvre will be promptly repeated by the
party attacked, and so it will go on until both sides
are lashed into an ungovernable frenzy, and then
they will go at It hammer and tongs until one or
the other gives way. when the victors howling
♦Futsak! FutsakV Hie: out! Get out quick!) will
chase them as long as there is a possibility of in
flicting damage. As the Kaffirs do not indulge in
ornamental, but go in for the most business-like
kind of fighting, weapons are kept out of their
hands when possible.
"One day shortly after my arrival in Johannes
burg I was driving across the veldt, when I "ame
across some Kaffirs fighting. As I drew near one

pursuing at top speed. Not more than fifty yards
from my buggy one of the fugitives stubbed his toe
and fell, whereupon his pursuer, who had in some
■way secured possession of an assegai, promptly
drove that weapon through the body of his pros
trate enemy and deep in the ground beneath. 1 ran
to them and sharply asked the survivor what he
■was about. Looking at me with eyes in which
the battle light was beginning to ate out he slowly
rhook his head and gently said, as, shrugging his
shoulders, he pointed at the body, 'Ah! boss, pelleo,
pelleo ' And you can wager he told the truth, for
that Kaffir never even quivered arter the assegai
struck him. I asked in Johannesburg what the
■word meant a* soon as I got back."

THE SHOT perpetrated, when J. V. Rogers, a
WENT TRUE veracious citizen of the "Hub,"
TO ITS capped th*> others with the follow-
MARK. ing narrative:
'•Some yean ago," said Mr.
Rogers, who is known to hi? intimates as '"Truth
ful James," "when I was on a hunting trip in
Northern Maine. I had a rather peculiar experi
ence. Word had bf»en brought to our camp of the
presence of a pair of wildcats ln a nearby cave, and
I started out at once to secure them, if possible.
Arriving near the cave I advanced cautiously to
Its entrance, but, the felines giving no slpn, 1
entered a short distance Into it. when two shining
eyeballs glaring at me from the deeper shadow?
of th« cavern brought me to a full pause. Taking
careful aim— and I am practically a dead shot— l
shot square between those balls of fire. To my
surprise, they advanced toward me rapidly, and
with a squ&U and a whirr two magnificent wild
cats passed by me, one on either hand, and. a sec
ond later the baying of my dogs announced
their arrival in the open. I was not only sur
prised, but very much puzzled as well, for never
previously had I missed at so short a distance.
and, as my nerves were perfectly steady at the
time, I couid in no way account for it. I followed
along the trail of my dogs, and soon came up
with them, as they had tr.-ed both of the tats. 1
killed them both, and upon examining tht-ir bodies
found the explanation of that which had confused
me, and vindication of my marksmanship under
any and all circumstances, for one of the arUdcats
was blind of the left eye and the other of the ri^ht.
Standing together in the darkness, it had seemed
as though the pair of eyes flaming in the darkness
had been in a single head. My sh.-T had gone true
to its mark. and. passed directly between the two
organs of vision, but, they bein^ in separate heads,

CHANGES IN THE TRUST.
A. O. SPALDING RETIRES AND R. LIND
SAY COLEMAN BECOMES
COLONEL. ALBERT A. POPE CHAIRMAN OF BOARD
OF DIRECTORS— THE ONE TOPIC OF CONVER
SATION AT THK SHOW— LARGE AT
TENDANCE AT THE EXHIBITION.
While the Bicynle Show at Madison Square Gar
den was as Interesting yesterday as on Saturday
and the aisles wee thronged as then, a bombshell
was exploded among the trade, and nothing else
was talked about during the evening. Rumors
began tc go the r >und of the booths about 6 p. m.
that there hail !>•■■ n ■ big shakiun In the American
Bicycle Company, that A. G. Spaldlng had retired
as president and that R. Lindsay Coleman had suc
ceeded him. Rumor had It also that Colonel Albert
A. Pope had boon elected chairman of the Board
of Directors. Then the tongue Of gossip took up
the story, and in h. few minutes every man con
nected with the industry in any way was talking
about the change and wondering how It came
about and what caused It all.
Shortly after 8 p. m. Colonel Pope, the dean of
tho manufacturers in this country, entered the
•R. t. COLEMAN.
Garden, and he was at once surrounded by the
curious. The Colonel admitted that there had been
a meeting of the directors during the afternoon,
that Mr. Spalding had retired and tWit Mr. Cole
man had been elected to the presidency, while he
himself had been made chairman of the Board of
Directors. He said that the changes were entirely
satisfactory to himself, and that he thought no
fault would be found In the industry at large.
Colonel Pope accepted the congratulations of hun
dreds of friends during the evening-, having a
pleasant word for one and all. A few minutes later
Messrs. Spalding and Coleman entered the Garden
in evening attire, and, as their booths adjoin each
Other near the Fourth-aye. end of the Garden, there
was some speculation among those who did not
know the calibre of these bicycle diplomats as to
what would take place. As soon as the magnates
espied each other they shook hands cordially and
proposed that they make a tour of the show to
gether. This they .lid arm In arm.
When asked regarding his retirement from the
head of the combination of manufacturers Mr.
When the company was organized by mysplf it
was the general opinion among the various moneyed
Interests that I should he ilie president. 1 ac
cepted on condition that as soon as the company
bad been placed on a Bound financial footing I was
to retire. This has now been done, and at the
meeting I tendered my resignation. There Is no
significance whatever in the move. Two of the
largest of our manufacturers take charge, and the
best of feeling exists all around.
.Mr. Coleman is one of the finest types of self
made men. Not so many years ago he was work
ing for a modest stipend, and he is proud of it.
There is probably no man in the Industry to-day
who is more outspoken, earnest and loyal to his
friends than R. Lindsay Col man. When those
seeing him and requesting Information ask perti
nent questions which he does not care to answer
he will decline to do so, but he has never been
known deliberately to throw the inquirer upon the
wrong track. For that reason he has made fitemls
in the mercantile and social world, an l retains
them. Fair in his treatment to all. there are few
men In the trade to-day who have so many earnest
and sincere friends. Mr. Coleman was born In
Virginia, and still maintains a splendid home-stead
there. After he came North he was for a time In
New- York and other large commercial centres, but
eventually connected himself with the Western Toy
Company, of Chicago, which In the latter part of
the seventies and up to 1883 was among the largest
manufacturers of wooden velocipedes and boys' and
Mr. Coleman, shortly after his connection with
the Western Toy Company, became a selling power
for the concern, and revolutionized the marketing
of the company's product. He made deals with
some of the largest marketers of that class of goods
in this country, and from time to time the original
plant was added to until in a few years it occupied
a block in North Clark-st., Chicago. At this time
the bicycle business began to assume important
proportions. The Western Toy Company estab
lished an office In New-York, with Mr. Coleman at
the head of It. changed the name of the firm to
the Western Wheel Works, and began to manu
At the New-York end Mr Coleman sold one-half
of the output of this factory. From ISS4 up to the
present time the history of the Western Wheel
Works has been a continuous record of unprece
dented sales, each year passing the previous one.
About 1896 Mr. Coleman was made president of the
company, the original proprietor retiring. The elec
tion of Mr. Coleman as president made him one of
the most Important figures of the bicycle trade.
The firm was then producing about one hundred
thousand bicycles every year, and the name of the
Crescent bicycle was well known. At this time
Mr Coleman went abroad and developed foreign
markets, so that the Western Wheel Works began
to do a large business on both sides of the At
lantic. Mr. Coleman's prominence- brought him a
unanimous offer to become president of the Cycle
Board of Trade, and this office he filled for one
year with credit to the organization.
MORE SOUVENIRS THAN EVER BEFORE.
"I see it stated In some quarters," said L. C.
Steams yesterday, "that many people were disap
pointed on Saturday night on account of the lack
of souvenirs. Such news has evidently been cir
culated by those who are opposed to the bicycle
and automobile for some set purpose. The state
ment appears ridiculous to those who were present
at the exhibition on Saturday night, for the sim
ple reason that never before has there been such
a rush for the souvenirs given out at the various
booths. It Is also true that more souvenirs were
given out than at any previous show ever held in
"The pinks and the numbered cards which en
title the holders to chances on a bicycle given out
at the Featherstone booth fell into the hands of
thousands, who appeared to appreciate what they
had received. The little watch fob and charm dis
tributed at the Cleveland booth was one of the
best and most prized souvenirs ever distributed at
an Industrial exposition in this city. That little
watch fob will be worn by many riders this year,
for the reason that it Is appropriate, and will serve
Its purpose well. Some people obji-ct to wearing
expensive Jewelry on their wheeling tours, and
this watch charm and fob fills the bill admirably.
"At the booths of the Spaldings, Popes, Cole
mans and other prominent makers souvenirs of
appropriate designs were distributed. So that any
body who circulated the report that there were no
souvenirs, and that the public was disappointed, evi
dently did not go to the show himself. The rush
for souvenirs has been so great that several of the
manufacturers, even thus early In the week, have
ordered an additional supply."
The automobiles, of course, come in for their
share of attention at the show, yet the Interest in
the display of wheels is as great as ever. While
many of the fashionable set can be found around
the booths where the horseless carriages are shown,
the greatest throngs are about the booths con
trolled by the veteran manufacturers who have
been making bicycles for years and whose trade
mark is almost as well known as the faces on our
currency. The average visitor must be Impressed
with the lively and healthy rivalry which exists
between the various exhibits
"I have noticed this rivalry " said Director A.
Featherstone yesterday, "and I think that It Is a
healthy sign of the times. I have never noticed
the same thing in any other combination of great
Industrial Interests. It simply shown that each
manufacturer of each of the many firms which are
connected with the one great company Is as anxious
as of yore to keep to tl.e front with his especial
wheels. It Is certainly a healthful condition, and
one which is bound to be of vast benefit to th«
general riding public.
"A glance at the Columbia booth will bear th!a
out. Each salesman or attendant Is simply wrapped
up In his own wares, and to hear him talk one
would Imagine that the only wheels of real merit
In the show were to be found In his particular
booth. And the Wheels show some really wonder
ful Improvements at that. It Is the same at the
Spalding, Featherntone, Western Wheel Work*
Rambler and Cleveland booths. Manager Bill of
the Cleveland booth Is a real enthusiast on one of
his exhibits. It shows a wheel fitted with a coaster
in the rear hub. and the hub Is so small that th*
average onlooker hardly credits the Information
until I* takM hold of the pedal and n «ratu
Did you ever see or
hear tell of an easier
running wheel than the

for himself that the coaster Is really there. The
brake is attached to the front wheel with a roller
device, which does not injure the tire. Many other
coasters brakes and coaster brakes are shown,
nnd another one which has attracted considerable
attention is the coaster brake attached to the
chainless. Many have predicted that as soon as
this device had be»n attached to the chainless the
Ideal wheel of the century would have appeared.
It has been done, and it works perfectly."
The artistic exhibits this year, the pleasing corn
bin >t ion of colors, the tasteful dtrorations of the
various booths and the general lighting effect are
commended on every hand. Much of this work Is
due to the artistic conceptions of Theodore F. Mer
selea and "Pop" Brewster. The exhibit as a whole
is undoubtedly more tasteful and harmonious than
at any of the old shows. Most of the veteran
wheelmen in the district have been seen at the
show, and they seem never to tire of looking at all
new Inventions as they pertain to> wheels.
One of the finest effects of the exhibition is to be
found near the main entrance on the Twenty
seventh-st. side of the Garden. It is arranged to
show the Fauber crank, and many visitors congre-
Kate about th<- booth •luring the afternoon and even

crank shaft with numerous colored electric lights,
all constantly moving in a way that astonishes the
onlooker. There is also an immense glohe in the
booth, am' there has been considerable speculation
as to the reason for Its constant movement.

HARVARD LOSES "DICK" GRANT.
Cambridge, Mass.. Jan. 22 (Special).— "Dick"
Grant, Harvard's long distance runner, has left
the. Harvard Medical School and will probably not
compete In any games for the Crimson this year.
Dean Richardson of the Medical School says that
Grant was requested to sever his connection with
the university because his tuition bill remains un
paid. The faculty will not remit the bill nor give
him a scholarship because of the inference which
might be put on such action that he Is at Harvard
for the purpose of athletics. Such a stand, while
undoubtedly for the Interest of Harvard athletics,
seems harsh on an Impecunious and deserving
student. Grant's loss to the track team will he
great, and his contests for Harvard -with his rela
tive, "Alec" Grant, of the University of Pennsyl
vania, as interesting episodes of intercollegiate
athletics, will be missed.

The matter really resolved Itself into a battle be
tween the veterans of the Exchange and the young
members, who for a lons time have complained that
the present system, imposing an assessment of S3
for each death, was too heavy a load for them, to
carry, in view of the fact that last year's deaths
numbered seventy-four, with indications pointing
to even a larger death list for the present fiscal
year, which terminates on March 31-the original
estimate having been that the deaths would he
only about thirty a year. The older members, white
admitting that the present system was rather
severe on the new comers, were determined to
fiSht tne matter to a standstill As a result many
members who had not visited the floor In years we re
