'xV' fln on Foot to Invito One of Tliem to St Come Here for Next Yenr't Intercolle- V glnte llegnttn on tlie Hudson Conch B Ltlimnnn Is Bnid to Be Interested. ft Under? certain conditions an Invitation will K probably bo extended by the Intercollegiate 9 flowing Association to tho wlnnor of the Ox- iw ford-Cambridge raco to ontor next roar's ro- 'W gatta on tho Hudson lllvor, at Poughkoopslo. m If It is Impossible, for an Kngllsh collogo crow to accept, an effort will possibly bo mndo to in- S, duoo tho noted Leandcr eight of Henloy fame jE to eomo 'over, so aa to lend an international ft flavor to America's greatest Intorcollogloto row- M lngevont. This plan is already undorconsldora- m Won by tho leading spirits In tho Intorcollogiate tT" Association, and at Saratoga on Thursday and Jr Friday tho mattor was oxtonslvoly gono Into. 3E The argument was sot forth that In years Bono by Cornell, Valo, Columbia and Harvard have ft sent 'varsity crows to England, whllo tho lead- lng British universities hao novor sent ropro W sentatios to this country. m When Talo was boating narvonl ovoryyear, St nl clalmlnB to bo America's representative flfc oolleso crow. Cornell all tho timo thought she p should rocelvo tho credit for having thosupe- W rlor crew, but could not domonstrato It beeauso no opportunity was offered to moot Yale. Nat i urally such differences tnado tho English col .4, lego oarsmen refrain from showinB any favors, ft and whon both Yalo and Cornell In turn wero beaten at Henley It did not help the mattor of M, supromaoy betwoon tliom much. Slnoo Oor- noil's viotorles over Yalo and Harvard, how- 9 over, our English cousins. It is sold, are anxious 9 to meet Courtney's crow In a raoo under Araer- f lean conditions. As Yale and Comoll wont to Honley at tholr own exponso and wore de- footed. It Is thought that olthor Oxford or Com . bridge may Jump ut a chonco to visit this coun- i ry. f Tho establishment of the IntercolIeBlato Bowing Association, composed of Comoll. Co lumbia, and tho universities of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, was really tho first step toward totting Engllsn crows to eomo here. The do nation of tho macniflceut silver challenge cup by l)r. Heaman was anothor stop, for tho rea son that It Is open to bo competed for by foreign crews If tboy choose to row for It In tho annual regatta. Tho final doolslon mado tho other day that tho association will row, only on the Hudson at roughkeopslc. whore there is room i for half a dozen crows and an immense crowd of spectators, was still another step lu tho right direction, and tho wuy is now pavod.lt is thought, for Borne races next year that will bo highly sonsational. , There Is a Hide lssuo. howovor.t hat must be de cided upon first before a definite plan regarding the English crews can bo adopted tho attitude of Yale and flan ard, Cornell has already gone on record as being against rowing at ew Lon don again, nnd is also outspoken regarding Pougnkeepsio. Saratoga and New London havo 30th been found wanting. Cornell will, ns The itw has already outlined. Invito both lalo and Harvard to join tho Intercollegiate 1 towing Abso ilatlon. If they accept no attompt will be niado o act an English orowover, here, as with tho to, blueandcrtmsonlnthorowlllbo bIx startors In M tiext year's regatta But If Yale and Harvard W deoldotorow at New London bythoraselvos. a Er Totter requesting the lslt of an English eight jt. Will be sent forthwith. . ... ,,, . T When tho Ithacans deelaro that thoy will not W row two races again and that l'oughkeepsie Is . tho propor course for a big Intercollegiate ro- , gatta. they aro entitled to consideration and f public support. Yalu ana Harvard can very R gracefully accept the Invitation to join the In- fercolleglato Association and thorobyend fur ., ther controversy, but many persons bollevo & they will not avail themselves of, tho lopportu 2 nlty. In that event Cornell nnd tho Unhorslty -8 of Pennsvlvanla, who can justly lay claim to Y first honors in American rowing, will gratify a J publlo demand If they make ovury endeavor to K, brine oer elthor Oxford or Cambridge, or ft possibly tho Leaodor eight. With an English $L crew In tho race, the event would excite publlo Interest far bejond anyone's idea. v Oxford and Cambridgo row tholr annual race v on the Thames. England, in March, and then break training. 13y accepting an invitation to X, visit this country, either of them would havo to Jfr keep In training for two months before meas K urine blades on tho Hudson. Soino persons W think that it would bo proper for an English ig, crew to live hero for a couple of months before IS. a race so as to beoome aooustomod to tho I j? climate, but others Bay tlmt It would bo wB, better for an eight to arrive only a fow IM days before tho contest, so that thoy I,. -mtght not lose tholr beat form acquired Wi on the other eldo. Tho fact that the race on MA ' the Hudson next year will be for throe miles, MM ag at Saratoga, is being sot forth as favorable Hk'l for u foreign crow, as against the old four-mile HBs test, whion by many persons is tiiought to bo mW too much. Oxford and Cambridge row four R.'-n miles at home, but a three-mile race ovor hero KS.B" for either of them would not serve as a handi KSw Cap. Tho Leandcr crew is confined to tho Hif Henley distance chiefly, but it Is thought that Eg f as the boat is filled with veteran oarsmon they v ' might bo Induced to train for a three-mile raoo k In Imninnn IS When Kandolph 0. Lehmnnn, who coaohed o Harvard this year, sailed for his home In Eng- t land it Is said he carried with him a proposition ?' made by Cornell, representing tho Intercol- g, Ieglate Bowing Association. It was to tlie t effect, roport has it, that a trip to tills country 8 by any of the English crews mentioned would t" bo a source of extreme satisfaction to tho mem- ' bors of tho association. An answ or f rom Loh- J tnann In a favorablo vein will result in quick action by the organlzation.it Is belioved.no matter what Yalo and Harvard may decide to do. Bo far as the Blue and Crimson aro concerned. It can bo sold that Yalo wants to meet Cornell again, but desires to row the raco over the zig , rag courso at New London. Harvard is vory friendly to Cornell, nnd will probably urgo ? , Yale to go into a big regatta on the Hudson. Yale Is dependent upon Harvard for a race, while Harvard con get one from Comoll and ,, the other crews without any trouble. Thcre- c fore the Crimson will bo quite a factor, it is 4 thought, in tho negotiations. As proof of tho statement that English oars i men are wanted, a reporter of Tni Bun asked Prof. 11. T. Wheoler of Comoll on Saturday what -' he thought of It. Ho said : "If we could got Oxford or Cambridge ovor ' horo to row on tho Hudson against our loading 1 crows the race would bo of world-wido Interest. ri It Is highly probablo that the vvinner of their race in England next March will be invited to eomo herolator. It Yalo and Harvard decide to Join the Intercollegiate, ltowing Association, "- well and good. They will make our re- v satta of unusual interest, for they are both formidable rivals. Dut If they do not oomo In. an English 'varsity eight would more than fill B tholr vacancies in the publlo Interest. Oxford B and Cambridgo row so early that It would bo H quite a task for one of thorn to train long B enough to enter a regatta here In June; but It B could be dono. and I do not think there would jf be any harm in It for them. American college crews havo from timo to timo visited England, -, but wo have novor had tho pleasure of meet t lngoneottho big English colleges ovor hero. Tho timo seems ripo now to bring the scheme M to a head." Coach Courtney favors tho Idea, and so do all Mb of the Univorslty of 1'onnsylvunia racing men. ' " Columbia would also welcome an English crew m with open arms, as would tho Wisconsin oight, ? which did so well at Saratoga on Saturday. A , trip hore would cost tho Lnglislunon in tho Mi neighborhood of $5,000. which would lncludo mtj everything. It necessary tholr oxpenses could i be defrayed by the ltowing AsHOclution. assisted s by subscriptions. A man closely Identified with tho Harvard crow, said the other day that Coach Lehmann , stated boforo leaving hero that ho would like m. to coach an English crew, bring It over here, MS and show the Americans what his methods are worth. Hi- WITsZ COVRTXEY LEAVE COJIXELLT Hv A Heport That lie Iltti Iteslgned, and That B-? Yale and Harvard Want Him. I PnrLlDELrniA, July 3. According to several f leading Unhorslty of Pennsylvania men who H were at tlie college boat races at Saratoga, H& Charles Courtney has handed In his resignation HK as couoh of the Cornell crew. He told old fPenn's representatives this on Friday night, . and further said ho could co to iulo it he wanted to. The Pennsvlvanians tiro a bit Mt'i: skeptloal about the au end of tho story. if; They think Courtney got Yalo and Harvard f confused, and thoy feel pretty, sure that the ty" Crimsons aro after tho great Ithacan coach. krr That plght Courtney sold that if Cornell won ho MM ft would not return to Ithnca with the boys, but H.

Hamburg, Flaudlt, The Iluruenot, and Other Scheduled to Meet Jenn BeroBud Among the Bntriei for the Double Event Drlcht l'rospecU for Brighton Bench. ThoraclueBolioduleBofarhoa boon ateadlly crowing In Interest and the climax will proba bly bo reached to-day vrtion tho nreat Itoallx. tlon Stakes cornea on for doolelon at Phoepi headBny. It will bo tho tonth running of tho race that has been made hlstorio by the tri umphs of such equine heroes as Satvator, Tournament, Potomac Tammany, Tho Trou badour Sunbeam colt,DobblrjB,BrlshtThCDbus, Ucaultal, and The Friar. Theietont has always bcon tho cruoial test of three-year-old quality, and It Is doubtful whether a hotter matched lot of oandldatos ever cams tosothor than aro slated to join issue this afternoon. Nearly evory horse encased has strong credentials to support his olalms. All have cood wins to tholr credit, whllo neither has succeeded in showing that ho Is invinclblo. Tho prcaonoo of John E. Maddon'o Western colt Plaudit would be enough In Itself to focus Interest on thoovent,as ho has long beon re garded as tho only candidate likely to prove a worthy rival to Hamburg. That was tho off season estimate, however, based principally on two-year-old form, and since then the outlook has been broadened by some startling develop ments and reversals. Hamburg went to pieces In tho Belmont Btakos, his first trial over a long route, but his performances since have been brilliant In the eztremo. Plaudit's vio torles on tho 'Western circuit moro than off set hts defeats, as ho was conceding lumps of woight on tho couple of occasions whon ho failed to land the money. The Huguenot has run some races this year which entitle him to consideration In any company, whllo George Boyd. Latson and Boy Orator have shown steady Improvement. Previous is a doubtful nuantlty, but should he feel In a vein to do his best he has class enough to keep him In the front rank. The Indications aro that Sloan will ride Ham burg, as there Is no change In the situation slnco the frlotion last week which prompted Taral to turn In his racing colors and resigna tion to Marcus Daly's representative. That was an unfortunato lnoldent. and it would nave been good diplomacy to havo adjusted the diffi culty before the matter became publlo. As it Is, rocegoors havo taken up the light, and every time Sloan and Taral appear there aro counter demonstrations. The other rldora hne not been slow to express their aon tlmcnts. and If the matter Is not soon smoothed ovorthero maybe a jockey's war with a lot of unpleasant trimmings. Those olose to Sloan Jay ho only askod tor tho mounts on Ogdon. lusher nnd Hamburg in a legitimate way, and It Is hintod that ho Is getting all the worst of every eoramblo whoro thorn Is a chance of bor ing or pocketing. His ambition is the iaudo blo one of winning all the races possible, but whether he, has beon stretching a point to at tain tlii obieot is an open question. The ono fact that stands out iu bold relief Is that Sloan nhvnjs rides to win, and, except) when a stabio entry leaves him no option, ho will not get up on a horse that has not some sort of a ohance. Taral has also been above Suspicion for years, and it Is altogether un eslrable that any enmity should do formed bctwoen these- two clover and well-meaning bos. Next in Importance to the Realization Stakes to-day comes tho second edition of the Double Kvent of $5,000. It promises to bring together such fleet two-year-olds as Jean Bereaud, King don. Qlenheim and Etholbort, while somoothers of the many good ones eligible may bo added. Tho balance of the programme Is in keeping vt ltli tho special attractions, and there Is not a weak race on the card from tho dash for the crack sprinters which opens the proceedings to the Coney Island Grand National Steeplechase, whlohends tho meeting. In the latter event the grand jumpor Bhillelah is woightcd up against six clo or opponents and the race prom ises to bo ono of tho features of tho afternoon. Tho venue changes to Brighton Beaoh on Wednesday for the twentieth unnual meeting, which Is scheduled to run for thirty days. Many improvements havo boon mado at the breezy track by tho sea. The rathor crude ap- iiroich to tho rear of tho grand stand has been evelletl nnd sodded, ana a landscape gardener ios touched up tho plots with picturesque flower bods Tho approaoh from the paddock to tho wost end ol tho field Btand has been completed, nnd a new roud from Sea Breoro uvenuo to tho grand stand has boon graded. Cocrcd walks havo been constructed from tho main gate to the saddling paddock nnd from the street to the field stand. Tho paddock has nlso beon Improved for tho convenience of owners, trnlnors, and handlers, and Lander's band has been booked for the meeting. The Brighton Beach ofllclalH nre as enthus iastic as over ovor tholr pot hobby of long-dis-tanco racing, and as many racos of that descrip tion as posRibln will bo put on during tho meet ing The chief feature scheduled up to date is the Brighton Cup of two mllos and a quarter, which produced such a sonsational race last vear between Tho Friar. Ben Brush and Sunny Blono The event, which will bo worth $7,500. is set for July HO. In discussing the plans of tho association. Beoretury Bass snys: Should the Brighton Cup give any in dication of the desire of horse owners nnd trainers to enoourngo long-distanoo races, tho association will probably unnounoo an event extending perhaps as fnr as four miles for the Inst day of its meeting, with the greatestamount of money added in tho history of racing. At tho present timo tho directors are inclined to bellevo that a raco of this kind should be a wolght-for-nge race in order to encouraga Dreoiiers Tho weights for tho Brighton Handicap, to be run on Wednesday, aro: Ornament. 128iflatsuma 104 Tillo 120 White Frost 104 Ottdrn in.

XTrV Tnr Start In Evidence on Western ' Tracks. The old notion that hlgh-olass harness rac ing la not to bo expected until the opening of tho Grand Circuit hat received a knockout blow during the last two weoks. Fewmeetlnga ovor held In tho big league have brought into prominence to many sensational trotters and pacers at were seen at Denver, Omaha, nnd Columbus In the latter part of June. What provod to be the feature of the second week at Donvor was a performance not on tho pro gramme. The three-year-old brown colt John A. MoKorron trotted a mllo In 2:13K In his work, moving the last quarter of anothor mllo In 0:30-a2:00 gait. Ho also trotted a halt In 1:05K and a quarter In 0:31 In his raco at Don vor, doing alt this fast work with Impressive ease, according to tho critics. Ho Is bred right for a record breaker, and Western circuit fol lowers predict that ho will prove to be the sen sational trottor of 1898. His sire. Nutwood Wlkos, 2:10K, Is by Guy Wilkes. 2:10M. out of Llda W.. 2 :18K. by Nutwood. 2:18X. His dam Is a sister la blood to Dlroot,2:05K. being by Dlrcotor, 3:17, out of a mare by Echo. The youngster is owned by Martin Cartor, Irving ton, Col., and Is driven by W. M. Ceoll. a oolored relnsman from California. John A.HoKorron mado a record of a :24m as a two-year-old on tho coast last roar. Ho was not forced to beat this mark In his easy raoo at Donvor. The colt Is entered against the bost of Eastern throe-year-olds In the olosslo Kentucky Stokes to ba trotted tor at Lexington, and ho has engage ments at some of the Eastern meetings. Another exercising mile wbloh set tlie horso mon talking at Denver was Searchlight's easy work-out In 2 :05K. This Is tho four-year-old grandson of Aloyono that Ed Tipton, Bam Gam ble and other horsemen from tho far West bo llevo to be the coming pacer. Ho goes without any boots or rigging, and is known to be an elghteen-karat racehorso. Tom Koatlng. in whoso stable Uoarohlight is. did not Btart htm at tho Denver meeting, and ho will probably not bo seen In publlo until next week at Poorio. Searchlight mado a three-year-old rooord of 2:0t) at Butte. Hon.. last year, and later pooed a publlo trial In 2:05K in Cali fornia. Anaconda, anothor young pacor In Heating's California string, worked a mils In 2:00K at Donvor In company with Chehalls and Eate Medium, tho trio lln ishlng heads apart. Carbonate who wilt be remembered as one of tho sonsational two-year-old paoers of 1804, stepped a mllo in his work at Overland Park in 2:00K. On the last day of tho Denver meeting these four arack paoers met in the free-for-all. nnd tho miles were reeled off in 2:05, 2.07H. 2:0SX. and 2.00M, Chehalis winning the race aftor Ana conda bad lowered his record from 2:00M to 2.07M In the socond hoat. Cholmlls Is tho Oregon stallion that holds the two-mile record, 4:1UX, for pacers. Ho is described as a hand some little black horse only 15.1 hands high and light-boned, wearing hopples, ten-ounoe shoes, and toe weights. He is by Altamont. 2:20&.outof Teoora, by Btr&den's Casslus M. Clay, Jr. TomBaymond'sold trotter Klamath. 2. 07 K, the grandson of Altamont. won the free-for-all at Denver, defeating. Carylo Carno with ease In 2;11K. Although "Cookfo " Is now In His four teenth your ho is said to be as fast as over he was, having trotted three-quarters of a mllo at a 2:05 gait on tho Denvor track. Gilbert Judd. who now owns and drives the velvet footed old trotter, says ho Is willing to raco him against any nnd all comers for $1,000 a side or a corner. In vlow of the wonderful speed shown by both trottors end pacers at Overland Park tho natural inforenco would bo that the track Is light ning fast. On the contrary, it is a slow course, built In the Platte Itlver bottom on ground that is by no means freo from sand and gravel. In a lottor to The Sun Presi dent Bradford H. Du Bois of the Overland Park Club says that on tho day of tho paoing free-for-all the truok broke out badly, owing to the scarcity of wator, nnd tho horses, could not find firm footing within two sulky widths of tho polo Tho green California trotter Goorgo w. McKlnney, who gained a record of 2:14Mlnthe 2:45 class at Denver, met his Waterloo on the closing day of tho meeting. Ho had won throe races within nine days, trotting twelve fast miles, nnd when started a fourth timo against fresh horses of high olass lie was too stale to hold his own against the Mon tana trotter (Juor lst. This horse reoled off three winning miles, each in 2:15V, showing racing qualities of a high ordor. Ho is anotner of the star green ones of 1898, having started only once, and novor won a heat until ho detoatcd tho MeKin noy horso nt Denver. In the 2:35 class at OmahalastTuesday.be defeated a strong field In 2:15. 2:14S. 2:17, 2:20f. 2:20. Querist is tho second green trotter from Marcus Daly's Montana ranch that has beaten 2:16 this season, the other being John Nolan. 2:14. by Prodigal. Querist is a llvo-year-old bay gelding by Mas cot. 2 25. tho eon of Stamboul. 2.07K, and Minnehaha, by Stevons's Bald Chief. Htamboulet, the son of Btnmboul, 2.07X, and Lady Kseott, 2:2t3li, is proving to bo one of the best of tho Great Wostom circuit trotters Bo fore leaving Denver he turned tho tables on Hazel Kinney, who defeated him In hts first race thoro and lowered his last year's record of 2.19 to 2:14ty. Starting In oompany seven seconds faster than his clnss he won the Trans Mlesleslppl Btako at Omaha Inst week, trotting his heats In 2-12X, 2:15 and 2-12K. Joo Won der, a bay gelding by lionnio lttchards, son of Bwigert. that galnedla record of 2:17 In 1803, was tho conteudlnir horse. The meeting last weok on tho fast track nt Columbus, O . uncovered three or four of tho S respective star trotters of tho season Nancy lng, who lowered hor record from 2:23)ito 2:13K in the race for trotters of the 2:23 class.

The mare Is by Russia, 2:29i, son of Nutwood. 2:18,nnd her dam is Alice Gray, by Alllo West. 2:25.

Century Riders Brave the Tropical San nnd Keep On In nn Effort to Hide 400 Miles Comments on the Defeat of Michael by MoDnffle- League Mar Drop Hnclng. On the roads It was a great day for neglige attlro yesterday. A rldor of olthor box wearing a coat looked llko a freak, and nt onco bocamo tho oynosuro of every oyo In rango. It Is note worthy that tho pageant of cyclists was moro picturesque because of tho almost unlvorsal discarding of coats and cuffs and high collars. Tho flashing mixture of colors caused by tho flitting past of shirtwaists of many hues made a scono moro gay and varied than those to bo witnessed on cooler days. Bomo how the pedallors looked moro llko oycllsts In tholr hot-weathor and fatlguo costumos than thoy do whon stiffly dressed In starch ed linen and woollon coats. There was that In tho rolled coats strapped on tho handlo-bars that appealed to tho eye In these soldlcrU times. Tho riders reminded ono of an army on a forced march. Tho tum out was light for a Sunday ono. The oxodus to the country for tho holiday was probably n factor, but tho heat was a greater ono. Not only tho midday sun, but the morning and the afternoon sun counted, although it was not in India. It scared out hundreds who usually join In tho procession on tho first day of the week. Ono blessing of the extreme heat was the squclohlng of tho scorchers. Thoy could not compoto with old Sol when ho got down to scorching, and they wero all fairly beaten out at their own game. A groat deal of walking and trundling wheels by hand was dono and ovory car on such linos as would carry whools on tho brake went past with the mount of somo sun-conquered rldor. The asphalted stroets and Uiose paved with brick wero avotdod as muoh as posslblo. Every one awheel was looking for shado, and in consoquonco most of tho lengthy trips ovor tho burning roads of tho country hills were abandoned. The Coney Island cyclo iiath as usual did tho largost business n tho wheeling line, nnd the roads leading to lath Beach wore also well patronlred. Ono of tho fashions of the day was tho wearing of a bunch of leaves over the head and protruding from under the cap so as to protect tho neck. Ono fastidious man went so far as to venture forth carrying an opened sunshade, and he stuck to his text In splto of the jeers and the wind. Thoso who Iwent out and wore wise enough to seok the shoro discovered that thoro was a stiff ocean breeze that mado it really cooler riding than It was lolling about a house and laboring with a fan. A sight that suggested martyrdom In such a heat as beat upon the roods yestordy was that of Tony Hamilton, the colored jockey, who travelled up and down tho path to and from tho Coney Island sands, clad In a pair of black tights and a heavy whito sweater. He was keeping his weight down by scorching along In in heavy dross on a wheel geared to 100 and equipped with a pair of bars dropped In tho ex tremest fashion. Hamilton's face did not have tho vivid pink flush of tho other riders, but it did look like a piece of chocolate that had been thoroughly soaked. Hamilton declared that he did not begin to keep In form until he got on hlswhoel. and that It is only Blnce ho renewed his riding tills spring that he has had winning mounts. Tho dofoat of Jimmy Mtcbaol by Eddlo Mo Duffle on Saturday has slnco been a common topic of talk wherever wheelmen congregated, whether on the road or at the club, and many soom to hold the notion that it was a cose of quitting on the part of the Welsh midget bo cause of the pace being more than he could hold. Moliufflo's romurkablo riding In every raco that he has run Is singling him out as the new wonder at tho mlddlo-dlstance gamo be hind pace. It Is a mistake, how ovor, to con sider Michael on tho decline beeauso of making a failure In his first race of tho season. The ex cuse of twisted handlebars did not havo oxactly tho right sound to many, but those who are too quickly skeptical are tho samo ones who forgot that there nre often many circumstances in connection with the public work of a trained athlete which if known to the spectators would fully explain a poor showing, although thoro are good reasons why the man himself or his trainer do not choose to detail the exact facts. This, according to all signs, should havo bcon a boon year for cyclo racing. It was confi dently expected to bo such, and many un matched chicks were counted by cycling pro moters. It Is yet too early for promoters to lose hope, but tho refusal of tho publlo In the first part of July to turn out In great crowds to tho meets even whon an exciting paced raco Is on the bills, Is converting moro than a few to the idea that Instead of being a boom season this is an " off year" for tho sport, and tho reason for It Ib being sought. Tho fact that racing lias not tho relatlvo Importance that It formony had in tho cycling world has been pointed out and ox plained as oelng due to the Increasing prefer ence of the publlo to consider and employ the bicycle as an instrument of moderate personal pastime, rather than as a factor In athletic sport. In tho opinion of quito a number, how ever, there are other circumstances to which tho decline of interest in raolng, if there really Is such a thing. Is attributable. This other factor oan be designated as the mismanagement and the faking " that has at times crept into tho sport. It takes only a little thing to shake faith In tho honesty of a sport, and the few things that have gone wrong havo undoubtedly hurt tho entire gamo in tho popular estimate. This Is hardly fair to oyolo racing or any other sport, but It Is probably a correct estimato. Suah mistakes as nave beon made havo not beon wholly ohargeable to the showman tootles of promoters. Tho Leaguo itself has been frequently arraigned with just ness. The League has also had to bear tho brunt of blame for many things that were purely tlie result of tho conditions nnd unavoidable. Tho ono thing toward which alt seems to bo tending Is tho surrendor or loss of raolng control by the Leaguo next year. The sentiment In this direction has bcon steadily growing within the organization itself ever slnoo I. H. Potter was severely sat upon at tho National Assembly of 1800 for proposing such a thing. Outside tho breastworks the same sentiment may be said to bo almost rampant. A lending mombor of tho National Track Association said to a Sun reporter two dnys ago that he uud all the track owners and promoters were strongly opposed to League methods, and ho predicted, without any mincing of words, that next year they, with all the professional riders, would be found divorced from the League. With the fierce rays of the sun pouring down upon them and the dry sandy roads thrusting tho heat back in tholr faces, soventeon of the twenty-eight riders who started Saturday night for the double, triple and quadruple century of tho Century Itoad Club, rodo through the day and completed 200 miles at 7 o'clock last night. Eleven fell by tho wnvside, several of them completely ov ercomo by fatigue and heat. Mrs. 0. Williams, the only woman who started on tho forty-olgtit hour continuous ride, quit at the end of the first century at 7 o clock yesterday morning, as did also sevoral others. All of tho twenty-eight startors finished tho first hundred miles. It was tho weather nnd heavy riding that weedejiout tho ranks yesterday, 0. Vt , Parkins and. Opdj ke, who rode a hundred miles on Saturday, wore among ttio finishers of tho second run last night, w liich perfonnuueo plnced a triplo century oar to tho credltof each Harry Early, who also rode acen tury on Saturday, laid offycstorday.after having ridden the 11 rat century, but ho started again lost night to ride lu tlio.thlrd and fourth heats. It ho llnishes. ho will win two double century bars. Parkins did not start for tho third trip, but Opdyko did, and declared himself deter mined to rlda until the Unlsh this evening, which would entitle him to a record of a quin tuple century. This will bo a rare distinction even in tho ranks of tho Century Itoad Club, whero trials of endurance are every-day af fairs. 01 tho seventeen who finished tho 200 miles, only soven started for tho third century, after a rest of ono hour at tho corner of Bed ford avenuo and Eastern l'arkway.
