B lHl Bob FitulmmoDB, according to a Chicago
B faRI aptoh, still adheres to bit determination not
B trEs o enter tho prixe ring again. A report wm
fl ' A lint out from Chicago on Bundoj which
' quoted Martin Jnllon as earing that Fltislm
fl K Jv mom had at last weakened and would agree to
B i ( take on Corbott for another fight. The cham
B b' W lon. however, declared onco mora yesterday
that he had rotlrod from the ring (or all time.
fl K There It another torj- behind thoso facta
B ft ME which contains comlderablo truth. It Is
fl 8' (ff known that 1'itJ Is sincere in his unwllllngnoM
B I' ? to flght again, for ha wishes to keoptbo promise

B h W,' ping OorbetU Hut his manager and brother-ln-
ft Eg' law, Martin Julian, doca not look at tho matter
fl i . .if in the same light, so closo friends of both men
fl a declare. Julian bolloves that K1U should say
fl f 3t that in due time he will tight Corbett or any
fl t SJ body. He also thinks that, from a businosa
fl h 8b, standpoint, Fltzslmmons should not try to
B ' M convlnoo tho publla that ho will never enter
H $ the ring again, but should keep people on edge
B ; 5" -V tto uncertainty of his movements. In a word,
H ' jji' Julian thinks that U Fltzsimmons comes out
fl i i M with a statemont that ha will reconsider his
B I doterminatlon not to fight again, and will agree
fl ' 9J to take on Corbett at "somo future dato," the
fl j 1 Cornlshman will prove more of a drawing card
m W, on the road than he Is at present.
fl V ';' Julian, It is said, roalltes that a retired pugt-
B ''"' Si' llstio champion Is not so attractive as an actlvo
fl i W ono, and the recent talk of Corbett, who says ha
B :, - wants to fight, has served to awaken Julian to
fl f Kg tho situation. It is therefore safe to believe
fl V that Julian, acting on his own responsibility
fl 5p, and with an eye to business, has spokon for
fl j &" Fitzslmmons by saying that Bob will probably
B i t. fight again, Fits', however, mindful of his
B r a promise to his wife and not anxious to fight
B K & anyway, does not back up his manager's state-
B a fjfc tnenta when ho Bays with great posltlveness
B n iHn- ln' D0 w' not Db again under any clrcum-
B g. stances. Fitz also said yesterday that It
B b S Stuart visited him to mako another match the
B I -I f noted fight promoter would not rocolvo encour-
B I '; agement. Corbett and Brady, both of whom
B I ?X Insist that they want to have another fight, are
B k W predicting amonff their friends that Stuart, by
B I' S?- some unknown hyphotlo methods, will compel
B i M; the ohamplon to capltulato. It is tho opinion
B i S?v many sporting men that Corbott, FitZBimmons,
B I 'S' Dl1 Btuart or0 possibly more desirous of a
B I m little freo aderttslng than another meeting in
B ' ftff the ropod arena. But that can be determined
B $ E due time.
B i w Fitzslmmons seems disposed to treat Mc-
i M Coy's victory over Creedon rather lightly, lie
H ; ij says that Creedon ould not have been In first-
1 i" class condition on lost Friday night, and that
H ,-.' McCoy Is not entitled to tbo middleweight
j ."';, championship bocause bo defeated ahelAus
H 1 & trallan at catchwclghta. ;Creodon, however,
H T f.H declaros that ho wa-s In tho best possible condl
kS i Vt tion. and also pronounces McCoy to bo a won-
I' 3J, derful vugilist. Kven granted that tho men
B 5i- met at catchwclghtB. it cannot bo denied that
B I ;L ' McCoy can easily get below 108 pounds, and
S W that, barring Jfitr, thoro Is not a man in tho
H 3 W world considered his equal. If Fitzslmmons
B f 'is' can got to the middleweight limit he should
B i readily accept ony challenge that may be forth
H t ;.i' coming from McCoy. But the latter, if he Is
f wise, will not faeo tbo lanky Cornlshman In
t ., the ring just yet, when there aro other easier
I v - y Holds to conquer.
H ; jb A charge bns been trumped up that McCoy
H ; Jfi. ' did not use fair methods in his battle with
SR, Creedon; that one of bis seconds, "Doo" Payno,
': rubbed resin on his cloves between tho tlfth
' ii and sixth rounds, and that whon the attention
,' ' of Manager O'llourko was callod to this fact
H ' ' by a spectator ho sharply called Payne down.
H rIv The story la backed by tho statement that
B Vj& O'ltourke admits tho truth of It. Thoso who
B IWf svr ,n0 f Bbt will wondor how It was possible
Wi for O'ltourke to mako his way to McCoy's cor
B ilr cor ln order to mako the alleged "call down."
i W There was a double row. of boxes, filled to over
mr. $") flowing, between that corner of the ring and tho
B P aisle, which was lammed, and aa O'llourko saw
B It i the fight from the opposite side of the ring,
B""Pk5"' '. near Creedon'a corner, it is hard to sco how he
B VVw arot around to a point whoro "Doo" Payne or
B E iO" any other second could hoar him. if Payne

William T. Letts of Hoboken skated an exhi
bition two-mile race at tho Ice Palace last night,
covering tbo distance ln 0 minutes 07 3-5
seconds, paced by Earle Reynolds. August
Fupke, and George u. Hemmlngway. The In
door record was 0 minutes 3 seconds, credited
to Harold McCormlok at the Granlto Rink,
Toronto, four years ago. Tho management of
tho Ice Palaco lllnk has doubts as to the length
ot the track, nnd It will bo survoyed within a
week. The exhibition last night aid not begin
until after 0 o'clock, at which hour tbeblgbulld
lng was crowded with skaters and others,
who bad been attracted by the feature of
the evening. Letts appeared to bo ln fair
condition, and after the Ice was cleared he
shot over the lino, tbo start being a flying one.
After the second lap Reynolds slipped ln and
attempted to make the pace. He waa practical
ly a hindrance, however, owing to his lack ot
condition and slow speed. After another quar
ter of a mile Hemmlngway was tried, but be
also proved Incompetent and retired ln favor of
Pupke. After the latter stopped Letts was prac
tically unpaced until the last quarter, whon
Reynolds again appeared and showed the way
to the finish line. The first mile was dona ln
2:00 and the second ln 3 :02 3-0. .

tho American Turf Congross to-day, at whtoh
were represented threo local tracks and those ot
Lexington, Louisville, Nashville, St. Louis,
Little Rock, and Now Orleans, tho following
was the action taken as to PImlico's alleged vio
lation of tbe winter racing rules. In regard to
which tho Congress and tbe Jockey Club have
boon apparently at somo variance:
Dellsvlns that raclni waa given and participated In
at the Plmllco track on Deo. 1, !t, s, and 4. 1897,
under ths Impression that it was not la contravention
ot the laws of the Congress or with the Intention of
violating therat therefore. It Is
Bttvlvrd by the Congress that same track and per
sons and horses that participated In such racing are
hereby reinstated to all the rights and privileges on
the tracks of ths Congress that they berstofora en-
IHtotvtd, further, that by this action the Congress
doea not abate Its opposition to or countenance
winter racing as prohibited by bylaw six, or to rotrlct
Its enforcement tosuppree that evil so destructive
to tbe legitimate sport i that the Congress li wining
to oo-operate with any other authority to utterly de
stroy It, and Invites such co-operation.
The Harlem track at Chicago was admitted.
The rule fixing purses for traces In tbe vicinity
of cities between 200,000 and 000,000 popula
tion at 9300 was changed to allow $250 purees

Meeting In tba Iaterest of Unoekabanta.
A mooting of the Advisory Committee of tho
prospective builders ot tbo now American
Yacht Club knockabout class was held at tho
ofllco ot Secretary Scovlllo yesterday afternoon.
K. Burton Hart, Jr., Frank Bon no Jones, New
bury D. Lawton. and A. Bryan Alley were
resent, and tbo changod designs sabmltted by
. B. Crownlnshlold were discussed. The rake
ot the rudder post, which was tbe principal
feature In tbe original design that did not meet
with tho approval of the committee, had not
boon altered enough, nor bad the sail plan so ns
to conform In detail to the other drawings. The
design, bowover, is In such shape that the com
mute Is Justified ln asking for bids from build
ers. Several well-known firms bavo been recom
mended, and definite figures on tbe specifica
tions will bo recolved within tho next twenty
four hours.
Frank Jones has boon nnthorlzed to sign a
contract with any builder he may select for tbe
construction of the boats, and this wllldoubtlees
be done before to-morrow night, at which time
a meeting ot all yachtsmen Interested ln the
matter will be held at tbe Grand Union Hotel at
8:30 o'clock.
What Yachtsmen Think er tbe Mem Bcltoonere.
Tho now fifty-foot wator-llne schooners con
tlnuo tbe loading toploof conversation among
I yachtsmen. Tho doBlgn Is nearly finished and
presents a wonderfully sblppy appearance. Tho
new boats will bo practically small editions of
the noted Yampa and built ln the best stylo that
can be turned out on tbe Maine coast. A promi
nent member of tbe Atlantic Yacht Club said
yesterday:
" Tbey will be little ships, fit to cross tho ocean
In. At the same time tbolr shallow draught
will onablo them to enter any ot tho small har
bors along the coast. For myself, should 1 de
cldo to build, I could think of no moro able boat
tbnn the proposed class would develop. In my
boat I will havo an auxiliary engine offabout
ton horso power, so that I will bo able to
get into port whonever the wind dies out. This
will also bo useful ln tho rivers and bayous of
Florida, where tbo channels aro often too nar
row to admit of beating up againstla head wind."
The promoters are enthusiastic as regards the
possibilities of ths type, and tbo meeting, which
will be called within a tow days, promises to be
an interesting one.

lleport wore submitted by tho retiring offi
cers and heads of tho various commtttoes show,
ing tbe affairs of tho division to bo in a pros
perous condition. Ex-Ohlot Consul Pottor In
his report went over tho work of the division
during tho year. Secretary-Treasurer Bull ln
his annual statement showed that tho member
ship ot tho division wns 20,000, an lncreaso of
13,030 ovor 1800. Tho rocelpta for tho year
were $28,700.07 and the disbursements 328,
203.23, leaving a balanco ot $502.8 now on
hand.
Chief Consul Jenkins presented a report
touching upon tho various departments. He de
clared that a highway Improvement bill will bo
Introduced at Albany this winter, the depart
ment to be undor State control. A bill will also
be Introduced for tho adoption of a gen
oral Btato law In relation to tho con
struction of sldo paths In different counties.
Consul Jonklns touched upon tho question
of local organizations, and ventured the opinion
that such a movement would materially aid the
growth of membership ln the division, which he
anticipates will roach tho 00,000 mark, ln 1808.
The adoption ot a Junior mombqrtblp In the
division was advocated by Consu Jonklns.
Upon tho subject ot six-day races, tbo new
Chief Consul advocated that the L. A. W. dis
courage and prohibit such contests In tho future.
Us called attontlon to the fact that while the
L. A. W. granted a sanction to the promoters of
tho recent six-day race ln the Madison Square
Garden, the organization ln no senso approved
of the race Jonklns urged that tbe L. A. W.
tako steps to present an amendment to the Na
tional Assombly for the prohibition of such con
tests. In selecting delegates to attend tho annual

It is doubtful it more than thirty of these dele
gates will attend tho meeting nt St. Louis.
A resolution was passed instructing tbe dele
gates to vote for I. B. Potter tor President of tho
L. A. W. Potter opposed the passage ot the res
olution, declaring a preference to have tho men
attend tho meeting unpledged. He admitted,
however, that he was a candidate tor the ofllco
and wanted to receive the support of bis di
vision. Tbe formation of a junior membership or cadet
corps was discussed at length. It was the sen tl
mont of tho meeting that such a department
was calculated to help tbe League and provldo
for the accommodation of young riders. It was
decided to present tbo following amendment to
the constitution at tho national assembly:
Amendment to section 1, Article IU constitution
of the League ot American Wheelman:
Provided, however, that the Board of Officers of any
division may Insert a clause In tbe division constitu
tion or by-laws providing for tho eatabllsbment of a
cadet corps of the League of American Wheelmen, to
be subject to the contrul and management of the Board
of ORlcers of the division, such Cadet Corps shall
consist ot minors between the ages of 10 and 18
yean, wbe are members of families or wards of adult
members of the Lesgue of American Wheelmen, In
rood standing. Each member of the Cadet Corps
shall be furnished with a numbered ticket
ot membership by tba Secretary-Treasurer of
tbe division and also with a pin of appropriate
design, to be furnished free of charge by tbe State
division. Eaoh member ot the Cadet Corps, while In
r;ood standing, sbali be entitled to all of the prlvl
eges and protection afforded to adult members of
the League of American Wheelmen, except voting
for and holding office In the League, or of the
receipt, without charge, of tbe official "Bulle
tin" road book or other publications Issued free to
the members of the League. Thry sball also be enti
tled to hotel and repair shop dlsoounts while touring
in the company and under the control of adult mem
bers of tbe League of American Wheelmen. Eaoh
applicant for membership In the Cadet Corps
shall pay to the becretary.Trcasurer of the dtrl
slon, an Initiation fee of 88 cents and sball also pay
00 cents for annual dues, such dues and fees
to be covered Into the State division treas
ury, for the exclusive use and benefit ot
tbe division. When members of the Cadet Corps
reach the age ot eighteen years they shall. It
eligible and luey so desire, be transferred to the
membership roll ot the League of American Wheel
men, on payment of the membership dues of the
League of American Wheelmen, and shall then b
entitled to all privileges of tbe Lcaguo ot American
Wheelmen, the Secretary-Treasurer of tho division
notifying the Secretary of the League ot such transfer.
Tbe Executive Committee suggested that the
81,200 appropriated for the Chief Consul bo re
duced to $750, but this was defeated.
An Englishman has invented a new way of
fastening tbo rear wheel ln Its place so that It
can bo removed without unbolting tho chain.
This Is done by hinging the lower jnw of tho clot
in tbo rear fork endswhero the wheel fits In.
By moving the v heel slightly forward the chain
can be slipped off over tho sprocket and the
wheel drops down. The dovlce wns designed ln
nld of tho gear case and will save a great
amount tof nnnoyanco In removing roar tiro
to tboso who tiso tho English case. One of
tho points ot superiority ln tbe American gear
cases, however. Is that they are constructed
so that it is not necotsary to take
them oft entirely In such an cmorgenoy. The
section that covers the rear sprocket Is mado
detnibablo and comes off with tho wheel. Two
manufacturers aro known to have adopted Eng
lish cases for 1808. but most ot tbem will use
American models. A Chicago manufacturer an
nounces that lie has Invented a new case of
stamped steel for excluslvo useon his wheels.
Thocaso Joints together by means of tonguo and
groove flanges. It has separata chain runs, and
the spokes of tho main sprocket wheel are ex
posed. Long distnnco riders who havo bocu ex
perimenting with gear cases say thoy travel
2,000 and U.000 miles without touching their
chains, nnd yot ride easy running wheels,
NOTES,
The advantages or electric pane-making in match
races was shown In Paris esrly ln the month. Tom
Linton, tbe Welsh rider, paced by a quadruplet, and
Jacqurlln, the French rider, paced by an electrlo tan
dem inauueil by tho Jailers Brothers, met In a series
of races at ono and nva kilometers respectively at tho
Velodrome du Parcde.Prlticcs. Jacqueflu'e pacing was
decidedly the beat, and he won Loth races handily.
This was the first trial of electrlo aud human pace
makers In a match contest. Throughout the race the
electrlo pacing tram kept pace with Linton and rode
away from blm at will.
At the twenty.Mrst annual bteycle show held ln
Agricultural Hall, lu London, early In the month, a
Rreat variety of bicycles and sundries wera shown,
ut few radical no cltlrs noticed The foreign man
ufacturers have male small alterations In their 1888
wheels from this year's models. One firm exhibited
an eighteen-pound blesele with a frame or tine tubing
arranued on tbe (antlfevrr plan. It Is a road wheel
and excited considerable intertst due to Its .construc
tion aud n eight, A number of novelties were shown
In bleyclo brukes.
