Jersey City Defeats Itrooklyn nt the Onk lnnd Rink. Tho Jersey City roller polo team defeated Brooklyn in a sharp contest at tho Oakland Blnk, Jorsoy City. Inst night by a scoro of 5 goals to '2. Tho Jorsoymen outweighed tho Brooklyn players, and while the lnttor gave them a hard tusslo In tho first two pe riods, strength nnd aggressiveness finally told against them. Furbush, Jersey's half back and captain, played n fine game. Ho is ono of the heaviest playors in tho league, nnd his drives last night wero woll directed nnd delivered with tho speed of a cannon ball. Jersey City actually scored 0 goals, but throo fouls, two of which wero committed by Fur bush and one by Houghton, decreased their scoro 1 point. Houghton. Jersoy City's first rush, got tho ball In tho opening rush of tho first period. Coyle thou socured it. but Furbush roughly took It away from him, for which ho was repri manded by tho roforeo. Then Iloucbton got tho bnil again nnd scored tho llrst goal for Jersey City In four minutes. Coylo for Urook lyn oened up matters one minute later by gottlng tho rush nnd landing the ball in Jorsey City's cago. Thero was somo fast work until the end of the period, but neither side was abln to scoro again. Tho first rush of tho second period went to Perkins.

In this way some natural hazards havo boen utilized In luting put tho course. Including tho Punch Bowl nnd the valloy containing the old farm lane. The lane, with Its sunken, grayish banks, has boon eleared of nil brush nud stumps nnd is being broadened out in places and deepened so a-j to roach the sand, In each instance forming an ideal bunker. The Punch Bowl Is nt tho bottom or a deep otal depression sunk In a phitoau. which surrounds It on all sides and makes n hole very slml lar to the famous Punch Bowl hole nt Prestwick.

XE1TS OF TUB WUEELSIsy. The Next NntlonnI Assembly ot the L. A. W. Mny Do a Lore Feast. Hnndloapper McCarthy, who. as an official of the L. A. W. Baclng Board, often finds occa sion to note and report delinquencies and transgrestions on the part ot cyclo racing men. rocelved yesterday a letter from tho Baclng Committee of the Associated Cycling Clubs of New York, asking him to bo on hand from 10 o'clock to 12 on the night of Deo. 31 at the starting point of the annual midnight race from New Vork (o Tarrytown. This was oon slderei hy McCarthy as proof that the race would be held with all due respect to the L. A. W. and recognition of Its rulings regarding amateurs and professionals, and that the riders who have been puc under ban by the League will bo barred out of tho contest. In a chat with a reporter of Tije Sun MoCarthy further said that he had suggested to Chairman Mott the aavlsabllttr of the racing men who aro registered with the L. A. V. being represented br one or two delegates, whether "outlaws'" or not, when the racing rules ot tho League are revised for next year. In his reply Chairman Mott said very emphatically that he was in fa vor of not showing the least shade ot comDro mlslns spirit toward tho men who have re belled against Loaguo control, but admitted that tho suggestion wasone that had "set him thinking." " A young woman and an elderly man went Into a store In Warren street yesterday to buy a wheel. The woman was hardly out of tho teens" and although the man looked old enoua-h to bo tier nraudfat her. she called him pa." They left without making aZpurohnse, and tho reason for It. as Indicated by their conversation, illustrated with what tenaoltv some women have laid hold of the Idea of rid ing diamond frames. The purchase was evi dently to bo made as a Christmas gift to tho girl, but there was an argument from the start. She wanted a diamond frame nnd man ifestly had kept the facta secret until arrived at the store. Pa" was surprised and rebel lious. He did not ride, nnd all tho arguments of his daughter could not convince him that It was all right. The salesman was discreet and took neither part. The girl flatly refused to tryon"adroD'frameand her rather just as tosltlvcly said that ho would not pay for a "man's wheel" nor let her ride one. Both were obdurate, and the store lost a sale. They left, each trying to convince tho other. It was only an exposition of, an old controversy, and the two men who were In tn Place nnd over heard the conversation held different opinions. It begins to look as if the next National As sembly of the L. A. V.. which Is to bo held In Providence In February, may be something In the nature of a love feast, with no rivalry, even of a friendly kind, for the ofu.ee of Presi dent. The signs havo indicated that T. J. Keenan. Jr.. of Pittsburg would have for an opponent Conway W. Sams of Baltimore, the former receiving the support of the Elliott adherents and the latter that of President I. B. Potter and his friends. The need for har monious work in the Interests of the organiza tion aro such, however, that all the factions are realizing thnt it will be a wasto of time to play at politics even for a few weeks. Potter and Llllott having both declared themselves to be non-candidates, It Is becoming recog nized that tho best policy will be to bury the hatchot and have all the forces working unitedly to enlarge the Leaguo and strengthen its influence. It is therefore nulto possible that thero will be only ono candidate for tho League Presidency of 1800. It seems to be a prevailing opinion that If Keenan is lelected V. W. 31ears will bo Chairman 01 tho Baclng Board. Boports from eyele dealers are to the.olTeet that this vear there was tho usual number of wheels bought for Christmas presents. Many anv that the holiday buying was greatly in ex Jess of last year, tho Increase being In juvenile machines. Considered altogether the deal ers ae cheerful and confident. They are soil ing more wheels than ever, although with smaller profits, and tho outlock Is that with the war clouds all dispersed there will be a small revival of the cycling boom. NpTKS.

Tho need of such an institution has been Insisted upon by Mr. Bosenfeld. act ing as Senior Consul of tho local organization, nnd the conference of yesterday was brought about by him. Strangely, New York State has not had within Its own boundaries a mechanical laboratory for tho testing of road materials, and tho Stnto Museum at Albany, a branch of tho State Unl vors ty, has beon obliged to ask the assistance of the. Massachusetts, Highway Commission and Harvard University to mako necessary tests President . Beth Low has agreed with Pror.
