elaborato preparations and Incurred consider
ablo expense tlio War Departuient has decided
to nbaudon the plans for Bonding a relief expedi
tion to tho Klondike miners.
Secretary Algtr nnd Assistant Secretary
Mclklojohn hnve reached the conclusion that
tho necosslty for relief has ceased to exist.
Sccrotary Alger has sent a letter to Sonator
ltawley. Chairman of tho Senate Committee on
Military Affairs, asking authority of Con
gress to sell the supplies which have been
purchased for tho expedition. Those Include
tbo reindeer which have Just arrived In Now
York from Norway. Tho Secretary ox-
Jilalns In tbe letter that tho conditions
n the Yukon have changed so as to ren
der the expedition unnecessary, and says
that Gen. Miles and Oen. Morriam Indorse the
Sropoaal to abandon tho expedition. The Cann
tan Minister of tho Intorlor has sent to tho
Secretaryof War information totho smno effect.
Secretary Alger believes thnt tho reindeer can
bo sold for an amount sufllclent to reimburse
tho department. Ho says that nn offer of 81100
each for 100 of them has bcon recolved already,
nnd that this amount would more than cover
tho cost.
The Interior Department would like to take
charge of tho animals. The Senate Military
Commltteo did not take action on the lcttor at
its meeting to-day.

Sir. Llnnov of North Carolina called up the
roport of Kloctlons Commlttoo No, 1, In tho case
of Urnttnn 11. Crowe vs. Oscar Undorwood from
tho Ninth Alabama district, and tho resolution
confirming Underwood's tltlo to tho scat from
that district was agrood to.
Mr. Loud opened his formal presentation of
tho arguments In favor of his bill by saying
that tho tlmo had arrived when tho masses ot
tho people should bo protected til tbo pas
sago of tho postal laws. Tboro wero not
to exceed 23,000 publications of nil kinds
in tho Unltod States, admitted to tho privileges
of second-class mall matter: and If all of their
owners wero solidly arrayed against tho bill,
they cut but a sorry flguro In comparison with
tho seventy millions of pcoplo In the coun
try. Thcso soventy millions, ho said, wero
taxed forlv millions a rear to carry on
tho business of 10.000 ot thcso publishers.
Cungross never had tho sllghtost Idea of admit

Ono necessity for tbo proposed legislation, nnd
a pressing one, was tho demand of tbo neopla

which was their right. This demand could not
bo met with tho Increasing cxpenso attending
tho transportation ot tho Bcrinl publications

The ofllcen and members of tho L. A. W. do
clare that tho reports of tho formation of ac as
sociation to control professional cycle races this
year are without foundation. It Is true that a
number of race-meet promoters, manngcrs, nnd
trainers aro agitating the question of organiz
ing In hopes of causing a rov olt ninong tho cash
prlro riders, but the Lcaguo has ptannod for tbo
government ot professional and amateur rnccs
this yrnr, nnd w 111 not brook Interference from
nny Independent association. Rnclngmcn who
nro satisfied with tho way In which that depart
ment Is conducted by tho League say that
somo riders In tho ranks would liko to
dlctnto how racing should bo governed.
Ono of tho beat known local professionals. In
talking yesterday with a reporter of Tint Sun,
scouted tho Idea that, tho leading racing men
will consent lo rldo under the auspices of any
new organization. Good management, ho main
tains, means a llvollhood for them, and tbe en
trance of race promoters and mnnagors Into tho
control ot racing means tho downfall of tho
Socrctary Bassctt of tho Ij. A. W. announced
yesterday that 301 new members had been en
rolled In tbe Loaguo during tho past week. Tho

The delay In awarding tho annual Stnto meet
is regarded as slgnlflcant by local organizittons.
Tho tact that the ofllccrs of tbo division uro
known to favor placing tho managomont In tho
handset Indlv ldual promoters In this city and are
putting off the award has arousod considerable
opposition. Those clubs which havo submitted
applications to run tho meet and havo received
no reply openly declaro that It Is Imperative for
tho success of the fixture that BOino decision ro
tating to tho award bo mndo nt once. Ihcy
maintain that ns it is the custom to hold tbo
meet early in Juno It Is only in justlco to tho
applicants that tlioy should rccelv o time to pre
pare for tho ov cut. Mcnilwrs of tho Leuguo uro
awaiting tho nward of tbo meet with unusual
Interest to discover whether raco promoters will
rccelvo tho preference over L. A. W. clubs.
The Associated C) cling Clubs of Philadelphia
has taken n decided stand In opposition to Sun
day century ruus. At n recent meeting a reso
lution waB passed to tbo otfect that wheelmen
should dlscournge such runs ns much ns possi
ble. Riders In this cltj who havo Just heard ot
the action ot the Philadelphia association de
claro that n determination to stop runs of that
charnctor Is ridiculous. While it Is admitted
that objection has been mndo In somo of tbo
towns adjacent to the big cities against
opon century runs in which 100 or -0(1 riders
take part, no forceful argument why they should
bo discontinued can be advanced. Four or llvo
years ago riders who covered 100 miles on tho
road insido of twelve or fourteen hours wero
considered to have performed n meritorious
feat. Tho excellent condition of tbo highways
mako It possiblo al tbo present tlmo for riders
ot little experience to make a century within

The loldler honcmen ot Squadron A Increased
their laurola and admirers last night and showed
surprising proflclonoy In all that goes to mako
tho Ideal cayalrym&n. The occasion wai the
annual athlotlo tournament ot tho squadron,
nnd, na UBtial, tho Interesting unction was
largely patronlred by the fashionable sot. Tho
boxes nnd balconies overlooking tho tan-bark
drill floor woro thronged with handsomely
gowned mnldons nnd matrons and stalwart es
corts In military nnd olvlllnn full dress.
The armory was agreeably lighted with n now
arrangement of oloctrlo globes, so screonod ns to
serve their nurpoio without nfTcctlng tho eyes
and nerves of the horses. Most of tho visitors
woro cither relatives or cloio frlcni1 of the com
petitors, nnd every font of nioro than nicrago
merit was hoartlly applauded. As tho majority
of tho performances won this recognition en
thusiasm was woll sustained, and It was
only by mctlodicnl persistence that tbo
squadron band, under tho leadership of A.
licdorhnus, could assort Itself nt times. A
cursory glanco through tho progrnmnio revealed
a decided Increase in tho competitors. The
squadron hns now thrco troops luntuadof the

wero the doublo riding, tho novelty race, the

Corporal A. J. Sladc's team won In short order,
having lost only threo mon while unhorsing
all tholr rivals. Tho conditions ot tho nov
