I The veteran yesterday entered! upon tho
oroseoution of a test case the result of which
will determine whether or not a cyclist has tha
right to leave his wheel standing against the
railing on the bridge roadwayjat a'tlme when
he Is obliged to dismount and-pick up some
thing ho has dropped On Monday Pitman
was riding overlthe bridgo when theens of
his lamp waa jolted off. falling between the cor
tracks. Ha got off to pick It uo. standing his
wheel meantime ngnlnst the outer roll. Kev
etal trucks and wagons passed it without strik
ing It. tho drivers considerately pulling out a
little In order to do so Then came along a
man who Instead of looking ahead to see
where he was going twisted hi neck to see
what the wheelman waa doing The result
was a blcyclo badly smashed and a lawsuit
Theowner:M:the wagon declined to Day for
tho damage nnd the case hss.been put In the
hands of:Potter 4 Miner, the I, A. W. counsel
In connection with the accident the victim ot
It gives a piece of good advlco forth benoflt

For several days thoro have bn7rumors
running ovor the surface of the cycle trade I o
the eflect that all negotiations for forming a
bicycle trust had boon called off and that there
would be no Z combination of manufactur
ers. Yesterday A. O Hpaldlng. who has
been engineering the formation of the
trust, was questioned concerning the ru
mors. He declined to mako any statement
concerning the exact status of the plans at
present, but said ho could bo quoted em
phatically to the offoct that there was no truth
In the rumors that negotiations had ceased
E. C. Bald is now In New York, attending to
a few business matters before beginning ac
tive training It was his Intention to go to
Louisville and train on the lountaln terry
track, which has been opened again to tne
outlaws" since Kimball was excluded, but
Bald says lie may change his mind and train
nt the Berkeley Oval track. In this city ltul
ways takes Bald some time to becomo "lit."
and ho doos not expect to do any raolng beforo
the second week In June Match races will
o;cupv his time largely, but he will follow the
Orand Circuit of tho N. C A . whleh will start
In July and terminate In heptember It has
been Bald'a ambition for some time to go
abroad, but he d silked the Idea of giving up
being the champion hero. HoMiought. he
would go this spring, however, but ban decided
to wait until fall. Regarding his European
trip and the affairs of the Racing Cyclists'
Union, of which he is President. Bald said .
"It was my Intention to have rn;J.In Eu
rope thls.season.ibut owing to the Incomplete
arrangements for international recognition of
tne N.C. A.. I will defer my visit rather than
pay a flno to the L. A. . Bv next fall, vv hen I
will cross, the N (' A. will have demonstrated
to the I. C. A Its thorough control of the sport
in this eountr). Even il tho L. A. W should
remit alllthc fines lmposcdigjnatuiilon riders,
that would not have the least clToct In Induc
ing them to dosert the X. C. A . for we bellevo
that our Interests and the welfare oHthn sport
will bo most satisfactorily looked after by the
new body Of course, every movement will
disclose a few traitors, but the percentugo of
backsliders in the union has been extremely
Owing to the reduced prices of bleules a
great manv persons now.btiy whels for cash
who would not do so when tho price was $100
or more There is, however, ajlarge amount
ot Installment business ht III being done, and
it ha Its troubles tho same as over, Isuillv
the trouble In connection with Installment
sales Is visited upon the dealer, but It 1h not al
ways so. as id shown by the sad story of a man
who has been riding for several years lie
says tint he nover bought a wheel except for
iash before this yene and never tvlll again, but
thlssnrlnc helwns "haidlup" and bought n good
wheel on the partial payment plan He had It
only two wecl when It was stolen fiom in
front of a store, the thief being unseon nnd
the hope of recovery not worth entertaining. I
His loss did not affect his contract with tho
dealer, though, and he has to pay every month
for tho wheal some one else Is enjovlng. Ho
sass It Is tho worst case of "paying for a dead
horse" that he over experienced.
In tho contracts made with buyers of wheels
on the Installment Plan It is stipulated that in
default ot pa ment the dealer mav seize the
wheel whetever It Is and may. in faot. walk Into
a house and take it provided force as not used, ,
Under one such agreement n Hrooklin rider
recently received a nice opportunity to walk
home from a hotel about twenty miles out on
the Merrick road. Two men. both riding
wheels, took his wheel from the rac'c In front
of tho hotel, which had no cheeking system,
nnd In spite of expostulations rodo away, with
one man leading the lecovered whoef. One
man waa the dealer who had sold the wheel,
and the other was n deputy iherlff, or, at least,
he auod the part of one They had In some
way learned of his intentions for tho rldo nnd
had followed him, waiting for a time whon they
i ould seize the wheel without using force.
The rider admitted that ho had not paid for
tho cycle, but he thought It was a very sharp
practice to take It from blm on tho road when
he did not have enough In his pocket to nny
ruilroad fare, and he had sympathizers nmong
those who witnessed the incident. This Is a
new wrinkle on the part of installment dealers,
and ns It appears to be perfectly legitimate,
riders of installment wheels should take no
tice nnd cither keep paid up or olsenotleav
their wheels alone, even for a minute.

Tho Associated Cjellnc Clubs ot New York
steered sntel) between tho rocks of jealousy
nnd the whirlpool of dissension last night by
voting not to hold any race meet this year.
Thlawas done at a special meeting that was
tense nnd full ot nervous energy from the time
the delegates began to arrlto at the hall,
corner of Fifty-eighth streut and eighth
avenue There was a stir of pro-rnco
meet men and antls who vvero lobby
ing before the meeting, and It was
plain that the Importance of the matter
was appreciated by all. Had the Influential as
sociation of clubs decided to hold a meet It
would have had to do so under either L. A. W.
or N. C. A. rules, nnd thereby glvo Its support
to ono or tho other of the conflicting organiza
tions. Tho local hondlcapper of tho l A. ..
accompanied by James Towen. was early on
tho scene, and It was soon an open secret that a
telegram from President Keenan of tho Ij. A. W ,
had been received offering to back the clubs if

race meet, held a long consultation with thp I

body seeking raco control, thoy all fell In lino
with the idea of not favoring either one. nnd
the sixteen clubs present voted unanimously
that no race meet should tako placo. Tho dis
