ft BBABOira why waztxu peet does ' not coach Columbia's chew. l K Asked, to Take Charts r Candidate and Be $. calve Instructions from n Committee seme- i' talas; Abewt Carter, the Vala rilcbtr-Rnlra ?, That Baseball .tfacnnlre Do Mat Kararea. i Many studonts and graduate of Columbia University aro wondering why tho coaching of ''; tha 'varsity nnil froaliaiiin crew candidates has ft not been Intruded to Walter II. Peot, Vfho 5 turned out the winning crow at I'oughkoopslo S, In 1890. It appear from tho statements of per ft son who are conversant with rowing affairs at H Columbia that Peet was asked tu coach not onlr 5s last year' eight, but alto this year's candidates. 6 and refusod becauso he was not assured of abso fjf Jutecontrol of tho oarsmen. It Is said that Peot KJfc was requested to coach tho 'varsity craw Inst Kpf year under tho supervision of a rowing commit f.l tee. That Is to say, ho was Invltod to tako chnrgo Eft of the oartmon on condition that ho would M Instruct them In the methods of a stroko to bo JRji suggested by tho commlttoa. In vlow of tho fact that Peot coached a winner In 181)5, It was MSI not considered strango that he should baro ob W jected to recelTlnr pointers f rom a comrhltlea wS of rowing oxperts. It Is now said that not long Kty ago Peet was asked to takochnrgoof the crew && candidates for this year, and was also requested W to act In accordance with tho Instructions of RI, still another rowing committee, who bcllovcd Kif, that Columbia should adopt a stroko which jr should bo a combination of thoso taught bi ff Courtney, Cook and Lehmann. Peel, It Is Ira? olalmod, would hare beon willing to assume con Bf trolofColunibla'soarsmon.provldlngbehadbccn h'( allowed to use his own judgment as to Btroke and Hfii trainers, but he could not stnnd for the opinions K of the commltteo, and rather than be bnndi BS cappod so that tho crow would not provo a sue-H-fi cess ho refused to hare anything to do with It. j&t Therefore, the report cirs, the commltteo sc m lected Webb, the boatbulldor, as coach. Thore Wi ore said to be two rowing factions at Columbia, Wf ono of which Is favorable to Peet and tho other H opposod to him. As Peet has beon tho only suc f cessful coach Columbia has evor had, his fiS friends arguo that his rcBngngcmcnt, with Ui supremo authority, will guaranteo a strong er ar 'varsity crew wearing the bluo and V& white than under other circumstances. tp The system of controlling rowing and othor i (ports, as has often been pointed out in Tun Mf Gun, is so different at Columbia from that at & other Institutions that. In ordor to put tho local Mf students ahead In athletics, a certain amount of H? reform is necessary. gy "Tho best college pitcher I ever saw," said !$S George yavis, snortstop of tho New Yorks, yos- Bx terdoy, "ws Carter of Yale. He had phenoni- W anal speed, wondcrtul curvet and n remarkabla fi delivery. 1 shall never forgot tho doy ho pitched i against tho Now Yorks two or threo years ago, F In the oarly spring. Tho day was cold und tho SSL New Yorks. all dono up in heavy swoators, wero juK taking things easy. Carter had on a light flan- Del shirt, with bis right arm bare, and ho began J, sending in tho balls like cannon shot. Ills speed pi was something terrific, and wo were all dotig- J Ins away from tho plate, fearing that he would knock somebody s head off. Wo kept '& waiting for him to lot up, but he continuod to Zt shoot them In with such steam that, in all. wo ES madoonly about seven hits In the game. When By. the teams got into the dressing room after the BT battlo a couple of Yalo men were rubbing Car- y ter's arm. Sir "'That was pretty hot speed you had to-day, it. Carter.' said Johnny Ward. JS "Oh, I don't know.' replied tho tall Yale JSt pitcher. 'Did you peoplo think I was swift !' 5S "'Well, I should say we did,' replied Ward. Mi Yon had ns scared to death P K "'I'm surprised at that.' rotortcd Carter, seriously, because my arm Isn't exactly right. t and I didn't let myself out.' I? " Ever since then the Now York player who G'ji took part in that game have been regretting fm tho fact that tha big Yale man's arm wasn't ( right, for we'd havo liked to have seen just what he was capablo of doing with us when he was f flC" fi - College baseball enthnslasts frequently nsk S- the question as to tho best collego catcher ever & Keen on tho diamond. Tnls generally brings 5S forth answers that involve tho names of Ilort Jf Allen, Campbell and Uenshaw of Harvard ; Jcsso JDann. Hubbard and Qrcenwayof Yale; Kafer $ of Princeton, Coogan of tho University of Penn- g& sylvanta. Dick Flnlay of Columbia, and many ,p others. Dann becatno noted as the catcher who ie handled the puzzling curves of Stairg of Yale. Ki IIo was, no doubt, a wonderful backstop, and IS bis work attracted tho attontion of professional If? baseball managers all over the country. CIV Harvard men had two particular stars to fU boast of In Allen nnd Campbell. The former rV Is dead. In 188S ho was catcher on Is, Harvard's champion team, for which Ud ?.( Nichols was a phenomenal pitcher. Campbell Ut came to Harvard in tho full of 1880 practically 'f! tinknown. Uenshaw was the star catcher then !' for the Crimson, and Campbell modestly triod for somo othor place. When tho Harvard tram 'J went to Princeton for tho first cimoIul887, tS Henshaw, by an accident, Dusnod his hand W through a glass door and injured it no that bo M could not catch. Campbell jumped into tbo gamo, w and bis phenomenal playing prompted a cry of p professional, " which waa entirely unwarrant- Aff ea. Campbell was afterward sought after by j the Boston League club, but he went Into bust- EtC ness at Doston instead, tireenway, who raught (H Carter at Yale, was another superb backstop, fU who was highly praised by leading profession- i'l als. Coogan was so clever that ho Is now a mem- sj" berot the Providence Eastern league team. Qat FInlay of Columbia, who caught the noted S? pitcher Ayrnult moro than ten years ngo. was $$k afterward signed by tho Now Yorks. Kafer of ef' Princeton is considered the best college catcher '! in the country to-day, and he Is only a sopbo- H more at that. WQ John T. Urush of the Cincinnati Club, who Is JiJ, In favor of blacklisting ball players who uso y, objectlonnble lunguage on tho Hold, und who ;fe believes that the players should ccaso kicking ' against the umpires, says that the niles, as g they are printed in the book. If onforccd by tho $ umpires, will put an end to all troubles. He &.' alludes to tbls rule, which, he says, covers all H the points at Issue: 3 nuleOO Section 1. The umpire Is the sole and ab j& solute Judge of play. In no Instance slinll any xer- 4) . son, except the captains or tho cuntfietlnK loams, be ty allowed to address him or question his decisions ond f" "-" they (the captains) can nniy question hlmasiotlie legal interpretation of the rules; ami they shall not fee permitted to leave their proper pusttlnns In so do- '1 Ins;, unless permitted by the umpire. The proper po 3"T- ' sltioatare: The coacher's box for the captain for the EF side which Is at bat, and his regular Holding position 1 for tha captain In tha field. No inansapror anr other Wl, ottlotalof either club shall be permitted to po on tha XglZ. field or address the umplro, under a penalty of a for- wff tslture of a game. S- This Is tho rule that Is constantly violated by 5f( players who are never punished by tho mag- Yi nates. The Cincinnati man's " blacklist" rulo ft Is covered by the following, though in sonic- K what milder terms: ,tV llule SD. The umpire shall remove from the gams & and the field any player guilty of Indecent or vulgar ' lantuage or conduct, and In addition thereto he shall fth be requtretl to assess a fine of $35 against tho player jijV so removed. JM In the past whenever umpires havo enforced fjx this rule, they have been generully upbraided by (js club Presidents und protested to N, K, Young. ft Another rulo that has caused troublo for tho 'r umpire Is tbts ono: ' llule eo Section 1. The umpire It dlrrotrd, and it-' Instructed, to Impose a tine of not less thai (0, nor J snore tkeu glO.durlUK tho progress of a game, us foi- r,' lows: For the captain, coaeher, or auy player of the Sf contesting teams railing to remain nlthln the bounds of his position udrnuedlu the rules. This, huwercr. a: shall not deprive tha captain of either team from ap- pealing to the umpire upon a question Involving a .", legal Interpretation of the rules. i By Inflicting fines in accordance with this rule '.; umpires heve brought down the displeasure of 'A various club owuors, l.o havo set the wires to J Washington on tiro with requests for nn liuina- & dlato removal of tho dutiful olllcials. Section 3 fj of this samo rulo is another causo of trouble. It reads: ' If a player Is cullty of a second violation of this i, rule iho umpire shall Imposo a due of s?S, and. In his :; ctUcratlon, order the player from tho tamo ami tho p.

Bf It will be seen that the above rules aro oxpllclt r t n?.u".n ani1 " enforced would koop the rowdy iU,?JU, ,n cJ,e?!c . u,lt " "10 umnlrcs say: KJ 'Vhot can wo do If tho mngnntcs try to rimova m us the moment wo endoaor to enforce their H FulDA 'f heinagnotes aro beginning to realize that tho public known hcro to place tho blame. ltllllnros.

Flno weather nnd splendid Ice contributed to tho on joyment or the postponed events of the National Amateur Bpoed Skating Association at Spring Lnko this afternoon. The attendance wa good. McCul Jocb, tho Canadian wonder, won tho quarter mile championship of America. He clearly out classed an ambitious and speodr Held. IIo was not crowded nt all, except by Alfred Y. Morgan, K. A. a, who fell Into his stride on the straights, but could not catch tho Canadian's clover knack of shaving tho posts on tho turns. Charles Mc Cla o. N. Y. A. C, burled his chances In a snow bank on the backstretch nnd did not qualify. For Iho first boat in tho qiinrtermlle cham pionship tho line-up was: Ulrastead, Ulbbs, llellereullle, McDonald, and Paulding. Mc Donald got thn bost of tho start nnd kept his ad vantage to tho finish. Ilellefetillle, tho Itat Portago man, nnd "Hnldy" O I bbs, tho New burg wlroworker, had a pretty light for second plnr, which resulted In Ulbbs's favor by a small margin. Paulding swung out. too far when ho turned Into tbo backstretch on tho first lap and brought up In a snowbank. Tho second honl brocght out McCulloeb, Morgan of the Iv. A. C. winner of tho ona-mllo nnd UUO-yard Interscholnstlo championships last year, and McClave, N. Y. A. C holder of tho twauty-tlvo milo amateur championship of America. MciCulloch got undor motion at tho Instant of the crack of tho pistol, and dropped into first place, leaving Morgan and McClavo to settle a rilsputu of somo standing as to which was tho bettor man. Tho advantsgo for nearly n lap rested with McClave, but no spoiled bis Good work by running on the turns and on the ickstretch shot off into n snowbank, and landed on a cakooflco. Ab McClavo went down Morgan jumped over him, thus saving hlmsolf n fall. It was a stirring exhibition of agility nu tho part of Morgan, who finished second to McCnlloch. Itnn aforegono conclusion that McCulloch would win tho final heat, but his performance was lookod for with interest, ns it was whis pered that ho would try to bre-ik tho record. The Canadian again got Oik bestof the start, nnd on tho tlrst turn increased his lead. The finish whs Intensely otcltlng. On the last stretch MrCulIoch's bulky bleeps worked Ilko tho piston rods of a locomotive, and Morgan, a yard be hind, strove desperately to oloso up tho daylight between himself and tho Canadian. Although he held his own, bo could not gain an inch. McCulloch won the heat, with Morgan second. Ulbbs was plainly oxhnustcd, hut ho flnlshod in tblrd place three yards bohlcd Morgan. Jlrforo the event Qalbraith met with an accident. While practicing ha ran into a ropo that was stretched across tSo track and was thrown backward with such force as to knock him senseless. Ho was not dangerously hurt, but was tnkin homo without dolay. The half-mllo pursuit raco developed an ex hibition of courage that was not down on tho programme. McCulloch did not start, ana tbls Icftn clear flold for the others. Ulbbs. wbo looked 111, waporsuaded to go In and try for first place. Ho wns matched against Bello foullloln tho first heat, and so closely did the two fight It out that nobody could pick tho win ner. Olbbs won by n yard. McClavo and Paulding wero matched In the second heat. The contest was uneventful, as McClavo won out by fifty ynrds. McDonald tried to qualify against time, but failed. Tho final heat brought out another display of Qlbbs's gaine qualities. McClavo apparently overmatched blm. but tho Nowburg champion clung to every Inch of gain he could get. At tho finish of tho third lap Ulbbs as he turned into the stretch was a yard or two ahead. By n sudden rally and spurt ho Increased this to four yards nnd cot over the lino a winner. Ho fainted at tho finish. Sum maries: Quarter-Mile Championship of Amerloa First beat won by II. V. HcDomld. Montreal; F. D. a I bbs. New. burg, seconds II. bellsfeullle, Kat Portage. Canada, tblrd.

Women nnd children were unusually promi nent yesterday at tho Poultry nnd Pigeon Bhow In Madison Squaro Gardon. The nows that tho chicks were hatching out by tho hundreds In tho incubators seemed to bo tho magnet that had attracted tho youngsters. Thore was a row of llttlo tots beforu oach Incubator, whero they pressed their faces against tbo glass to watch the fledglings pop out of the shells, and, after a mlnuto's rest to get tho socond wind, drop down Into tho struggling flock of hatchllngs on the lower shelf. Thero wns no cessation In tho new arrivals, for tho Incubators had boen timed to tho hour. It was a constant wondor to the children. " Oh I mamma I" cried out a wide-eyed, golden haired llttlo girl. "Look, quick, and see the eggs blossom little blrdlosl" Tacro was a protost or tw o made, tha first ot tho show, Ono was from tho pet stock men, who aro Indignant because tho usual ribbon havo not boen placed on tho boxes of tho prize winning mice. Tho judging was finished on Wednesday, and, although tho attention of the Secretary has boen called to tho omission, there Is nothing on the boxes to reveal how the awards wero bestowed. Having opened classes for mice, tho pet stock evhlbltors hold that tho Poultry and Pigeon Association Is frosting them with scant courtosy by withholding tho ribbons. The Light Brahma man also have a grievance. The conditions of tho association's special 9100 cup state thnt It Is for tho best Brahma rock, cockerel, hen, und pullet, owned by ono exhib itor. As It happona there nro only four men showing Dark Brahmas this yonr, whllo some twenty fanciers havo Light Brahmas. Conse quents Uio chnnccs against ono exhibitor scor ing moro than ono or tno bluo ribbons in the latter class wero much greater than for a Dark Brahma man to make a sweep of awards. Breeders of tha light-colored arlety aro therefore aggflovod becauso a cup has not been put up for each sort, Tho Dark Brahma breedors say that the protost Is nonsense. " Only onco in ten years," said one of them. " do tbe Dark Brahma exhibitors win tho cup. Anyhow, tho Light Brahma breeders have tho Diana Cup to competo for, while wo only receive a chanca for this special cup." The judging of tho spcclos for tho exhibition yards and slnglo birds was tho chief business ot tho day. The different cups were displayed on a stand at tho main entrance, a, vcrlublo Klon dike In richness, while many wero artistic in de sign as well as of intrinsic value Undoubtedly tho yards of Light Brahmas inako tbe best showing, both in numbers, for there are ton in all, and In tbo quality of tbe stock. Each rooster is in flno fettle, and ns lie struts proudly nmong his four meek and admir ing hens, assumes us many airs as tho drum major leading a band. Tho white and buff Wyandottes, the latter shown in yards for tho first tlmo, aro alto u flno exhibit, Thero arc also some notable yards of Brown Leghorns. Buff Cochins, Barred Plymouth Hocks, nnd Black Langshans. Only seven of the COO exhibitors of poultry and pigeons are women, yet they have won so many prizes that the occupation proves Itself to bo ono particularly adHptcd to tbe sex, Mrs. J. 0. Osborne, who won thrco blues and tho same number of red ribbons with White Minorcas, says that the business Is a profitable and pleas ant one for women, and no farmer's wlfo will make a mistake by taking up a strain of thor oughbred poultry. Miss UT J. McCoun ot Oyster Bav had a walkover with her Bluo Jerseys, and Mlsa Kate Y. niggins. while sbo missod the blue ribbon, won threo yellow ones In tho pit game classes, ono of them with a cockerel sno calls, according to a placard on tbo Den, "Cock o lorum Van Wyck." Miss LLzzJe Qoodell of Canastota won two firsts nnd a second prize with Silver Dorklngs,whiIo Miss Selma Weiners of College Point, wbo breeds poultry for plea sure alone, won two firsts and a second with Ilasccombed Black Bantams, while one lion won threo specials, which Included a silver cup. In pigeons Miss Ethol O. Hinds of Baltimore won flvo bluo ribbons with tumblers, and Miss Dorothea M. Keasbey, who is also a fanciorfor pleasure alone, won threo second prircs with pigmy pouters, very high honors when the high quality of the class Is considered. The most Important special award of tho day was the disposition of tho $250 cup for tbo best black Minorca cock, hen, cockerel, and pullet, Tbe award was made by points, but tbo pens counted two points. After a mooting, which was protracted to a lato hour, tho judges awarded the prizo to gantco & Cunningham. An exciting mooting of the National Bantam Club was held In the evening. It scorns that among the bantam mon thoro is nn objection to theruloottbo New York Poultry and I'igoon Association, which states that when only four entries nro shown In n class only tho second prize will bo paid. Under the rulo tbo bantam men tbls year havo paid to tho show $772 in entrance fees In seventy-five classes, and ns o.iiy $525 has been repaid to them in pr.zes they figure that the New York Association is ahead 3U47 on the deal.

Unless something unforeseen happens, the coming isason on Eastern raco tracks should bo a memorable one for horsemen and tho thou sands of outsiders who love to see good thor oughbreds competo for rich stakes. Tbo pro grammes Issued fay tho leading associations havo found owner generously responsive, and, unless tha dreaded " blue pencil " makes Its ap pearance beforo tha gamo starts at Bennlngs In April, ovory fixed event should bo signalized by large and representative fields. Entries aro still pouring in for tho Brighton Beach stakes, and although the lists will ro main open for a few days more, the aggregato Is alrondy close to four figures. At Secretary Bass's office yesterday It was learnod that twonty-ono nominations are In for tho big event ot tho programme, the Brighton Cup. This is regarded as a surprising return In view of tho fact that tho raco Is ovor the unusually long dlstanco of two mllosnnd a quarter, and that tho conditions practically bring all candidates together on tho weight for age scale. The first name on tbe unfinished list to catch tho eye Is that of A. II. & D. Morris's The Friar, who won tho event last year after a sensational race with Jsre Dunne's Sunny Slope. The latter Is also entered again, nnd tno presence of tho pair should be a big oard In Itself. Howover, as Tenderloin sportsmen say, "thore are others." These Include iho Brooklyn Handicap winner Howard Mann, Marcus Daly's noted colt Ham burg, August Belmont's shifty horse Don do Oro. tbo high-priced mare Lou Bramble, re cently purchased In tho namo ot W.

They Includo Whlto Frost, the colt reported to have run a mile In l:30-j in tho West, and such popular favorites as Orna ment, Havoc, Tragedian, Ben Holladay, Sir Walter, Dr. Catletl. George Kccno, Lohman, Presbyterian, and Algol. Secretary Crlckmoro Is busy compiling tho list of entries for the various stake events which will be runoff at tho spring and autumn meet ings of the Westchcslor Racing Association at Morris Park, and thoso to be decided at the Bprlngmcetlng of tho Washington Jockey Club at Bennings.

A NOTED noitSEMAJT DEAD. William J. Fltspatrlck. Jooker and Starter, Succumbs ta Pueamtnts. Saratoga, Feb. 4. William J. Fitzpatrick, who had been a conspicuous figure on tbo Amor ican turf slnco boyhood, died here this morning from acuto pneumonia, with which ho was stricken last Friday. He was born In Mount Holly, N. J., 36 years ago, and began ns stable boy for Pierre Lorillard when a more stripling. Ho afterward began riding for Mr. Lorillard and became one of the most prominent Jockeys In the country, gaining tho expressive soubri quet "Dare-Dovll Fitz" because of bis reckless determination to bring his mount under the wiro first. In hurdle races, when a mere youngster, ho was particularly daring. Ho rode for Michael Daly, Jr., Commodore N. W. Kittson. Qideon & Daly, Ed. Corrigan, D. Swi gert, Marcus Daly, James Murohy, and others. Ono of his roost famous victories was ut the Sheepshead Suburban when ho won on Trou badour. Fitzpatrick is survived by hi father, a sister residing at Bordentown, N. J., nnd a brother at Buffalo. He waa a raomber of tbe Koyal Arca num and tbe A. O. U. Tho announcement of Fitrpatrlck's death, which reached hero early yesterday, occasioned widespread regret among local horsemen nnd racegoers. In tho heyday of his fame as a Jockoy, ha had earned almost as much prestige hero as rurrounded the Into Fred Archer Tn England. His early experiences were amoni; the hard riding sot in the palmy days of Cedar hurst, and it was there bo won the popular sobriquet of "Dare-Devil Fitz," through his re markable indifference to danger and hts pen chant for rushing his horso over fences and through " tight spots." Fitzpatrick was a contemporary ot Jimmy McLaughlin and "Snapper" Garrison, and the noted trio had many a rousing battlo for su premacy in important stake ovonts. Old timors still recall with a thrill tho sensational race for tho Suburban Handicap of 1880. when Fitz patrick on Troubadour squeezed home in front of Richmond, Savanao. and seventeen other horses, and landed a fortune estimated at $80,000 for Cnpt. S. Brown of Pittsburg. Fitz patrick was engaged to ride Morello In the Fu turity of 1801!, but Qideon & Daly objected and Hay ward was put up Instead. This was a hard blow for Fitzpatrick. ns Morello won from Lady Violet and the St. Blaise Belladonna colt. In Domino's year. 181)3, Fitzpatrick was up on the other Keeoe entry, Hyderabad. Tho latter had a very stormy passage nnd fell, while Domino went on nnd won the noted "nose and noso" victory, in which Galileo and Dobbins wero the contending factors. Ilaelng at sjew Orleans.

Cressy Morrison of tho L. A. V who wns elected to offlco from tha West last year, Is now located permanently in this city, Mr. Morrison will attend the National Assembly nt St. Louis next week and will sup port I. B, Potter for reelection to tho Presidency. As a member of the pres ent Exocutlva Commlttoe, he has stud ied closoly tho leading amendments that will como up ot tho annual moetlng. In talking with Tub Sun reporter yesterday Morrison doclared that ho does not favor tho election of national ofllcors by popular vote. He aid: "There is an enormous expense Involved. Tho Idoa Is theoretically good, but practically I fear It would bo difficult of execution," Ilegardlng tbo other loading amendments ho said: "I beliovo that tho Sunday racing movement will be defoated again if brought up. You must understand that the fact should not bo lost sight ot that tho L. A. W. Is not a racing organi zation. Its work Is directed to improved high ways, rights and privileges of individual mem bers and tbo collective good of all wheelmen. Haolngisnn amusement feature. Tho Leaguo rospects the general scntlmont, and Sunday racing hns proved unpopular w hen undertaken." "What Is your opinion of tho suggestion that division officers should not hold ofhco In the na tional organization 1" Inquired tbe reporter. "Idonot think such a proposition Is calcu lated to be ot any benefit and I am opposod to the idea. Tho national body should not compel a division to lose a good State officer becauso he desires national recognition." "Do you think tho national assembly will voto to admit professionals to membership I" asked tho reporter. "Personally I am opposed to their admission. Tbe U A. W. Is a purely amatottr organization, and I think should maintain its rocord sb such. The claim thnt thn Loaguo governs professionals without according any representation to them Is not. In my belief, an injustice. On tho con trary tbo government of professional racing by tho L. A. W. Is a direct benefit to tbe riders. They aro protectod from Imposition by track owners nnd race promoters and their wants gen erally are looked after. These rumors of seces sion nnd counter organization! if tbo L. A. W. will not open Its doors to professionals aro mean ingless, for they orlglnato among those who do not fully comprehend the difficulties of tho un dertaking. " I hoartily lndorso tbo Idea of making tbe ofllco of Chairman of the Racing Board a sal aried position. Under tho present custom he is the recipient of a gratuity, Inasmuch as tho bal anco In the Racing Board treasury is no w turned over to the Chairman every year. The sugges tion to make the ofllco elective would not strike me as being bcnoflclal unless the heads of all the committees wore made elective also. I nm convinced thnt tho L. A. W. Is the only proper organisation to control racing and formulate rules for Its government. Tho Leaguo is su preme in its jurisdiction over all cy cling departments, and in its management of racing derives no pecuniary benefits, eo thnt nil its actions are upon a high plane. If somo good association controlled by reliable porsons could be formed, I would not op pose turning over the control of tho sport to it. But can such an organisation be formed on amateur lines without n pecuniary basis? "Tho amendment that will bo presented to the assembly advocating cadet corps In the various divisions I think is an excellent idea and one likely to rcceivo strong support. The amend ment in Its prcsont form is somewhat restrictive regarding the rights and privileges ot cadet membership, and I think it can bo made broader." Chief Consul G. H. Strong of the North Cali fornia division of tho L. A. W., in n report which will be presented nt tbe Leaguo meeting, deals fully with tho cycling conditions on the Pacific coast, Somo extracts from bis report, which will In terest League members and racing men, aro as follows: " Our present membership Is only one-third of what It was before tho secession movement. Wo find tho work of recruiting very difficult. Tho success of the secession movement was due to tbe Indifferent work of the old League officers. With two or throe exceptions money has been lost at every Sunday race meet nnd some of our best clubs have been brought to a condition of apathy, which is in marked contrast to their former nctivlty. Tho support of tbe movement was by no means so undivided rs you havo been led to believe. Track racing seems to havo been protty effec tually killed for tho orosent, and it looks now na If thero would be little dono this season. If your body decides to favorably consider a mossure looking to local option, such n measure would largely destroy secession arguments and reasons for the oxlstenco of nn organization in opposition to the League." The members of iho L. A. W. in this section are anxious to hold tho annual Stato meet of tho New York division bcro in Juno. Tho question has been discussed by the ofllcersof tho division, who think well of the suggestion, ItlsJikch that tho Associated Cycling Clubs of New York will take ud the question at tho an nual meeting on Feb. 14, and arrango to submit an application to tho division ofllccrs for tho award of tho meet. Bicycle dealers nro not disposed to offer large discounts on second-hand wheels In exchange for new mounts this j car. It has been custom ary for riders. In selecting new wheels evory yonr, to got allowances of 610 or 930 on old wheels. Tho general reduction In the prico of bicycles has atfectod the oxchango value Tbe boards of trado In the largo cities have consid ered tho subject of what is a proper allowanco on second-hand wheels offered in exchange tor now models, and tho limit has boen placed nt $'J0.
