T tarlr favored. Yale also takes the stand that it f.

S i fef Yale rowing men wish to bo fair In this mat- jS. fc-i ter, but they Insist upon the Thames touree. t J h because the majority of Yale and Harvard s, k-a men want tho raco to be rowed there, as It 1 '' Ki much moro convenient for thorn than I'oitgli- jA 6M kecpsle. The additional argument is offered -. St, Ks that If Cornell feels In duty bound to row Penn- I'-f i J& 1 sylvanla and Columbia, another triangular moo l"l Ft with thoso crews cmi bo rowed on the Thanicn.

Tho lilti- ' s f matum of Yalo may servo to break off all fur- W'f ti !her negotiations with Cornell, as tho Ithaeans K f fv' havo already declared that If thoy did not re t iS J; celvo a five years' agreement they would not ssmf II .C entertain Yale's challengo for an instant, but B M.,; -, would get up an open regatta at Poughkcepsle ssW.f & - or Perhaps send a crew to Honloy.

What evor alterations mar be mad by unauthorised committees In the West and other localities will not go for much. Messrs.

At they are experts In rulemaking and know the game in lis smallest detail, their opinion! will doubUejs carry mors weight than those of other parsons. Habitual patron of glove fights hereabouts bars not fauod to notios the behavior of three enthusiasts who are always at the ringside. Joe Vendtg, Phil Lynch and Jerry Mahoney. well-known sporting men, become so excited orei good bouts that they completely forgot their surrounding! and create much merriment among cool-headed spectators who take tbs trouble to watch them. Lynch Is probably the funniest of the three, lie begins br staring at the fightort with bulging eyes. Then, at the blowt bogln to fall faster, ho opens bla mouth and brings bis fists Into play. With every more niado by tho fighters Lynch Jumps up and down, dealt upperouts, cross-counters, jabs and twlngt at Imaginary opponents and dodges out of the way of similar blows that he thinks ha sees coming at him. At the decisive point In a tight when one of tho men it about to drop. Lynch grunta as every blow Is delivered, and when the struggle ends he drops back into his chair exhausted.

Potter for reelection at President ot tbs U A. W. hat do rtloped, and tho politicians In this 8tate hare bocomo somewhat uneaty. Sterling Elliott of Boston Is directing tho opposition, and seems to hare a big following. Potter hat received word from tome of the officers ot tbs Western divis ions that Elliott Is booming George D. Gideon of Philadelphia for tho Presidency. Elliott bst tent telegrams broadcast to leading members of tho LoBtruo with the Inquiry: " Will your 8tete stand with Pennsylvania and Matsaohutottt for Gideon!" This action It accepted as proof that Elliott realizes that It would be folly for blm to stnnd as a candidate agntntt Potter, but he It anxlout to make a combination to de teat tbe New York man. Prominent members in this State declare that Elliott It acting without authority In assuming that Pennsylvania will stand with Massachu setts on the Presidential question, as the Potter men hare received astorancos that the Keystone State will support Potior. While tho latter hot been confident that no combination or dealoan affect bit chances, this confidence has been weakened somewhat In tbe pnst few days, and tho officers of tbe State division are tn a sort of quandary ns to how thoy stand. Potter wired Vice-Consul T. J. Kecnan, Jr., ot Pennsylvania, in relation to Elliott's declaration, nnd Keennn, who Is slnted for Klrst Vlcc-Pretddont on the Potter ticket, tent this tolegr.im In reply: I cannot believe that the report It correcL Hsva never nesrd of snob a proposition. Delegates were Instructed to vot for me. It now transpires lhat Chief Consul S. A. Boyle and Becreturr-TreosurerColilni of Penn sylvania went to Boston nnd held a confemnco with Sterling Elliott ou Hunday. This circum stance and Elliott's Inquiries to the divisions lsads to tho conclusion that tho Pennsyl vania men aro thinking ot rejecting Pot ter so as to support George Ii. Gideon, the ex-Chairman of tbe National Racing Board. There Is a general feeling, how ever, that Gideon will decline to become a candidate. Thero Is also reasonable ground to suppose that If there la evidence tha t the officers of the Pennsylvania division hnvo broken faith with New York the delegates of tho former mny revolt and refuse to vote as directed. It tbe Pennsylvania. Massachusetts, and Now Jersey divisions combine to elect a President they could present a formidable front. The meeting of tho officers of tbe State di vision held at the Grand Union Hotol on Mon day night did not end until a late hour. Just before tho close the following resolution was passed: Ittiolrid, Tnst the Board of Offlcrs of the New York State Division of the L. A. W. express Its dis approval of prolonged blcyole racing, auch as six-day affairs, and recommend to ttia National Assembly the adoption of an amendment that will prevent in future contests of this eharaotar, which are mora likely to be Injuilou than benellclal to th sport. The division decided lo appropriate $1,000 for tbo expenses of the delegates to the National Assembly. Chief Consul Walter Jenkins said restenlny that ho Is confident tbe membership In Ihe division will ranch 50.000. and likely ex ceod theso figures next year. Uesaya that ho Intends lo tnko steps this winter to havo a cyclo pntb built nlong tho Croton Aqueduct, but uo efforts will bo mode to push legislation for a side path law. It has been generally accepted that tho amend ment to the U A. Y. constitution, proposed by Chief Conul Conwny Hitai of Maryland, which will prohibit nny person who has business ro tations with tbo League from holding an execu tive olllce, could not, if pnsscd. prevent the elec tion of any of tho raiirlldntes for President who nrMiioir in lho Held. According ton high Letgiio otllcliil, hou over, there Is ii nlto technical polt Involved whli li mnkes It decidedly questionable whi-thi i- sti h n i-aiulld ito could bo olocted and instnlleil.

One thing In particular is being demonstrated by the 1808 models end that Is thero Is on op- fiarout lUllv of pittern. so fnrns general frame iucsarc concerned. Kor years past there has been much uniformity In tho manner ot making joints, bcirlngs, lork crowns, fastening dovlccs for handle burs nut! sent pots, but this Is non broken up, nml the iuilk-nilons nro that It Mill never roatipcar. Tho diversity of methods promises to grow, whether the tpo of framo remains or nor. Thu logic of this Is that ninny makers havo found tunny w3S of accomplish ing tho sumo result. Some methods are better, soma best, and some poor. To tbe ridor this means that In order lo make the wisest selec tion when piirchnMncr. he must study eonio thine of the resnectlvo merits of tho methods employed by manufacturer. He must know, superficially, nt least, something of tho uiochnn leal questions invoh ed In cycle hullrllng. elso he must tako with lilin some one who has this knowledge. With the progress of mechanlcnl art this requirement upon the buyer has been growing greater overy your. Evidences are cropping nut thnt cycle con struction Is entering.n period of transition. If not alreadyfnlrly lu It. Everywhere whole bicycles nro manufactured men nro experimenting as ncicr before, striving to separate the good from tbe bad and nrrlro nt that stage u-bcro It can co said positively that t ho host has been sifted from the chaos of Ideas. In this many will drift fur ther away from thogoalof perfection, while oth ers will bunctuully approaching It. Tbo market Is threatened with further complications. In tho way of w heels without brazings. In England the agitation In favor of making tho connec tions between parts without brazlnc, of joining thorn by moans of lugs nnd cotter ulna, or taper ing expanders, has lieen going on for some lime. It is beginning lo mako Itself felt on this side, nnd, added to the ninny other now notions that, have appeared end nro promised. It is to bo ex pected lhat the cycle shopper will find bewil dering variety by the time spring Is fairly here.
