It, the egeft that an, nternational ride contest
was teing planned for Chicago nest fall. If
ocs. of the ideas of the promoters are carried
oait in their fullnes the proposed competition
win be the greatest and most interesting ever
ht td. The prituarv idea was to irvie an En
t gi.lh team to come over here and try eoaolu
+i. tr. 'vith twelve of the best men who can be
fc-:nd in the i'nited iates., but the proposition
as amenrdl a ual ineludo teams from any or
all coineel on the face of the earth. Includling
even New .irery. The probabilities are tie
chier-n :n favor of American vietorv if the
aboting does not go hack of the mid-ranges,
t ! tie pre.ent official arn-the Springfeld
w::l be simply worthles if the terms of the
match 1 rovnde for 800. 910 or .000 verds' work.
Thi.. daasdvatage. however. may be removed.
for before test fall it Is quite probable that
a s.fficieut quantity of the new email caliber
wi!l have been iesued both to the army and
the National guard. Ever. then the foreigners
have an .d.laatage, for it would be almost in
p-'ai"e f~- the American team men to become
iftca.tly well ar-naint:ed with the new arm
to rahke neh a .howing as most people would
esteet of them. Notwithstanding the evident
y.a...uan".ges. it is believed that a match or a
a: ie. of rnatches can be inaugurated, and there
are hu:.l-d if drst-clse ehot. who will corn
Irete f-r places on the team. Should it be dee
mely decided to hold such a eompetition at
Fort :he:i4n arrangements would be made
for giving everybody an opportunity to try for
a place on th" final teem of twelve. So far as
I Wa.ka:gton is concerned all the sharpshooters
tn the Diatrict National (inard would be given
such practice as they might desire to be followed
by a preliminary competition, which would 'e
suit in seriding to /lhlcago about half a doesa
of the best men. These would esmeto with
representatives from other sections of the eoun
try and the twelve dttest would sarvive. Al
together the season of 1899 promises to be one
of the liveliest ever known in the history of
military ride shooting.

Thoughtless members of the National Guard
-men who do not realise the growing .reed
ties for such an organization and wh. did not
join it from patriotic motives-may gather is a
little information by reading a portion of an
address delivered before the IHlmte National
Gctard Association by Col. Bracket
Said the coh.oel:
"1>uring the last quarter of a estary we
have received a vast addition to our population
by emigration from Europ. Many Miles of
peni!e. whose traditions and language are
foreign to ours. babe become citlaens of the
'n ied States under naturalization laws of Un
prt edented liberality. The majosity of these
mnigrante have. by their virtues, sobriety and
th-i":. united with a real liking for American
institatone, proved themselves well worthy of
citizenship. Other. have come, a mhbty army
of deg-aded and bestl. vandals, scattered
ta g the land. who never should have been
permitted to touch foot on American soil, whose
freeic na they do not, and neve rean. under
eta:.d. and where they remain today, a standing
menace ageunat the peace and welfare of
Amen-an society.

mulated ini the hands of a few man. The feudal
,stem of Erope has passed away, but ay
gera of that feudalism, retained in the body
. of our laws, have been one potent mase, oper
ating with other causes, to build up the new
feudlahem of our time-the feudalism of vast
wealth i: a few hands. On th other hand, men
who toil for lail wages are in a state of unrest
and U..ennteut such as has never befere been

very large, weli-bait
- and eenveniently lo
cated building., each
with an immense an
obstracted Boor .pawe
and very high. strong trussed roofs. The
sompany will sell these, so doubt, and it strikes
me that it would pay any one with moneyand
push to buy one or two of these buildings, pre
pare them properly (and that would not osct a
great deal) and then have attractive indger
1inter and other games. The people of this
city are a .p'ort-luving people; they will patron
ize good games of any sort, and for the want of
good very often go to see some very poor
games What a grand round of foot ball games
we could have, alternating with athletic ex
hibitions and oompetirions through all the
various branches of amateur and aceasionally
professional branche. The greatest drawing
card of all would, I believe, be indoor bas ball.
I learn that in Chicago there are four or Sve
regular teams and in near-by cities there are
several. A league hasbeen formedand aseriesef
gmes extending through the winter is now
'ng played. The attendance from the start
has been immens ad the average attendance
is something like 4,900. Now, why wouldn't it
pay here? You say "because there i so much
else going on in the winter" and "people have
something else to think about." I tell you you
are mistaken; the "people who have so many
other places to go" and "so much else to think
of" are so few compared with the ma=es who
make everything else a suceess that they would
not be missed. I have canvassed the subject
somewhat, and I believe we can make a success
of it. Begin with indoor base ball and see what
you'll see. Why, the base ball crank who went
into hi. hole in Oeteher will hear the cry sad
after that you couldn't keep him awayfrom the
winter game with a stuffed club. The indoor
game Is played under somewhat diferent rules
and in some respecte In a different manner
from the ontsoor game. I hope to give at an
early day a synopsis of the game for the beneilt
of those who have not vet seen this attractive
feature of a Chicago winter. Let some one at
an early day look intothe plans of indoor games
of all sorts, as suggested above,and form a com
pany or syndicate and start in not only making
money for the members of it, but furnishing
amusement and entertainmet for many
thousands who are anxious and willing to pay
for it, and the buildings I spoke of are just the
thing for the games named.

Up.n very fbw occasions since the opening of
the bright and cheerful club house of the C. A.
C. has the gleom which at present pervades It
been so dense and so all searching. Wherever
you go, from the very entrance to the top
loor, something seems to tell you that one of
the club's brightest members has gone from it
for all time to come, and this member was
Frank N. McDermott. One of nature's noble
men. a man of whole soul and generous im
pulses, whose friends were legion, whose enemies
were niL When it was reported a week or two
ago that he was on the mend it was hoped that
at an early day his cheery, musical voice, which
aiways found an echo in that charmed circle of
which he was the bright particular star, and
that circle composed of such genial boon com
paniens as Dr. Ward, Alex. Shaw, Jonas,
Joyce and Co te and a few others I do
not now recall, would be heard again.
It may be said of him who is no more
"that he was a sacere man and of noble alms;
whose truth was constant, who knew not mean
ass and who could look the whole world in the
facs with a trae, manly sympathy for the great
and small."
During the week the general Interest in all
departments of the club has been of that earnest
sort that speaks well for the management gen
erally and vouches for it the success it de
serves. When it was sound pointively that
Georgetown Coijege would not play foot ball
en Christmas dat. because of the absence from
the city of nearly all the members of its team,
Manager ,Jam King and Capt. Wilson arranged
with the Y. M. C. A. for the game, and all ar
rangemeate are now about cemplete, and it will
be a peat gamer the C. A. C. being strength
ened by some of its college members home for
the holidays, and aside from the quality of the
game to be played, the "stars" will be a great
attraction, and of tbe.e I have spoken before.
O'Donnell of Georgetown College, also a mem
ber of the C. A. C.. will probably play center.
Sam King will make his annual appearance on
the foot ball team and will play one of the ends.
The same good police arrangements assuring
a clear ield that marked the Thanksgiving day
game will prevail and good order and lots of
fun will be the order of the day. Game will be
played at National Base Ball 'ark. at 7th and
eudary, and will begi at 12 o'cleok noon
Monday, December 26.

whom, with practice, will play a good game.

Mr. J. J. Murphy, formerly one of the leaders
of special classes at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium,
at Scranton, Pa., has been placed in charge of the
gym. and will instruct in all the drills and in
boxing. For fencing a separate instructor will
be secured. As a sparrer Mr. Murphy is said
to be clever, and later on he hopes to take part
in some of the o n club events.
Negotiations e pending whereby the college
boys hope to secure for two days each week the
big armory or cavalry drill room at Fort Mver,

Many persons wonder why it is that the col
l team does not play the Christmas day foot
game the winner of the Thanksgiving day
game, usually having the honor playing 4.11
Washington or some other team. The reason is
simply this: The members of the team very
much like foot ball, but their chances for get
ting home are so rare that they could not well
allow their love for the game to keep them from
spending Chrtstmas with the 'old folks at
home." Looking at it from the standpoint of
the game they make the biggest kind of a sacri
fce, for aside of an opportunity for gaining
mere glery, supposiag the would win they lose
all that chanee for strengthening their athletic
fund, for with a good day there will be a big
erowd on Christmas day to see the Y. M. C. A.
C. A. C. game.
Every member of the team Is away except
O'Deanell and Dyer; the termer came late and
the latter resides here. Carmody, who \went
home on Thanksgiving, remained at home, and
will not return until the holdays.
The team was in reaipt of a new regulation
ball from Mr. Tappan soon after the Thanksgiv
ing day game as a cart of reward of merit. He
proposes presenting each year the team win
ning that day's game with such a ball. The
team has had the ball properly inscribed, and

failed to materialize
last Sunday and the re
sult was that club runs
had to be abandoned.
The continued down
pour of rain last week
made wheeling uncom
fortable, even on the
concrete pavements.
* . and what little wheeling
there was did not add
any rn to the many
trips mae by the clubs
earlier in the season. The messenger boys
were about the only wheelmen who were will
ing to brave the rain and mud, and then only
in the line of business. They include the many
boys in the employ of the messenger and telo
graph service, as wel! as the special delivery
boys to the postal service. It is estimated that
in all there are more than one hundred of such
boys in this city.
There was one club man brave enough to
tackle the road Sunday, and he was Capt. took
of the Georgetown Cycle Club. The captain
left Georgetown on his "bike" and rode as far
as Cabin John bridge and return.
Several new wheels for 1898 have arrived and
all of them. it is claimed, have improvements on
last year's wheels. Of late years the tendency
has been to make the wheels as light as possible.
Mr. William T. Robertson, the captain of the
Arlington Wheelmen. has just built a new
wheel of his own pattern, which has been tried
by many of the local riders, who are well
pleased with it.
Concerning the question of light wheels the
L. A. W. Bulletia asks: "Did it ever occur to
you that with characteristic American impetu
osity the cyclists of this country are driving
igto the matter of light machines to an alto
rther too great extent?" The paper goes on
to say: "The tendency next season is to ma
chines of a smaller weight than even our Brit
ish cousins would generally use upon their
good road systems. What will be the result?
Why even though the machines may hold to
gether there will probably be more of these
small accidents which are the inevitable out
come of overwork in a machine of any kind.
For the average rider a thirty-five-pound ma
chine will stand him better, and even forty
pounds can hardly be called an ice wagon. For
riding to business, where in the majority of
cities one will meet with more or less granite
block pavement, a forty-pound machine is
light enough, lspecially if an occasional acci
dent finds the machine under the wheels of a
passing wagon."
MEETING OF L. A. W. orFcas.
Wednesday evening the new, officers of the
local division L. A. W. met at No. 1737 Penn
sylvania avenue. This was the first meeting
of the new board, and Chief Consul Stinemetz
presided. League affairs were discussed at
length, among them being the question of
winter entertainment for the L. A. W. mem
bers to take the place of road runs. The meet
ing was called for the purpose of selecting
representatives to represent this division at the
annual meeting which is to be held in Phila
delphia, February 20. instead of in Boston as
was originally intended. The delegates elected
were Messrs. Overman, Perry, Atwater and
Van Doren.
This division is entitled to so many delegates
because of the large membership, there being
about 1,000 members on the roll at present.
The increase is due to the exertion of local
wheelmen. who endeavored to secure the prizes
offered for new members. Many of the new
members are not wheelmen, and as the consti
tution provides that candidates for membership
must be amateur wheelmen, it is hkely that the
right of this division to have so many repre
sentatives will be questioned.
Wilss Mae Guilford entertained the members
of the Nomad Cycle Euchre Club Wednesday
evening at her home in East Washington.
There were six tables and the contest was in
teresting as wall as exciting. Messrs. Bowen
and Mayer tied for the first prize, which was
finally taken by Mr. Mayer. The lady's prize
was won by Miss Burch.
Among those present were Miss French, Miss
Burch, Mrs. Robertson, Misse' Murray, Miss
Morrison, Miss lRussell, Miss Martin, Miss Rob
ertson, Mrs. Morris and Messrs. Robertson,
Bowen, Maysr, Larcombe, Menko, Robertson,
Davison. Terry, Hayer and Guzman.
Everything has not been smooth wailing in
the military cycle company and a number of
resignations followed trouble between the cap

words passed between some of the parties to

are now on foot for the organization of a new
separate company which will not come under

there is no more startling, blood-curdling
sound than its voice heard cloa.e at hand in the
silent woods after dark, when they are most
given to crying.
My acquaintance with the cougar begap at
the mouth of the Columbia river in 1865. I
had killed three elk and was, with one com
panion, packing out the first back load about
dusk to the canoe, it which we had left our
arms. We heard stealthy steps following us
but a few feet behind. which we thought was
the noise of rabbits in the dense sal-lal brush.
We were soon undeceived. however, when the
most weird and mournful cry rang out long and
prolonged, causing us to make a hasty rush to the
canoe, into which we piled and rushed from the
shore. Although we expected to pack out the
rest of that night we concluded not to do so.
In the morning we found two quarters eaten
and thereat mauled through the dirt and brush.
which everywhere bore the marks of their re
markably large feet and claw'.
In 180 I established a camp in the wild part
of the Medicine Bow mountains., Wyoming,
which was my home for over two years. during
which time we depended entirely upon large
game for fresh meat, of which we always had
an abundance hanging in camp. The second
night of its occupation the mules gave notice
that something was prowling around, which we
thought to be wolves. Alter everything was
quiet there arose the old familiar' call of my
tawny acquaintance, waking escrybody and
causing the mules to snort and plunge.
Our camp was infested with these animals. We
never knew how many were around. bnt were
certain of two, who fearlessly entered camp on
dark nights for the refuse of the cook house.
and kept up such a fearful screaming that the
men complained they could not sleep and re
quested permie'ion to put out poison to get rid
of them. I sat up many nights to get a shot,
often crawling stealthily toward their voices,
only to hear them soon after in an opposite
direction. One night when the moon
was bright I heard the call and
saw the cougar distinctly outlined
on a ridge at the distance of about seventy-ive
yards. It was apparently the size of a large
Newfoundland dog and was switching its sides
with its long tai! I waited until it called again,
then fired and missed. Twice we saw one
plainly just before sun..et on a prominent rock
overlooking camp, and each time our attention
was first called by its voice. I endeavored un
succesfully to catch them in beaver traps, and
spent days hunting them in the mountains
without ever getting a fair shot.
On onh occasion h bile hunting several miles
from camp we killed a number of elk which we
spent the afternoon packing out in reach of a
wagon and then laid down covered with blood
tin a cottonwood grove to sleep the sleep of
tired, but happy hunters. We heard a faint
rustling in the dark. evidently not more than
fifteen feet from our headt, which we agreed
was a skunk or a marten, when again the voice
of this night prowler arose, raising at the same
time our hair until we could get hold of the
rides. On this occasion I heard for the first
time a '.spit" catlike sound which sonnetimes
(perhaps always) follows the loud ery.
but which can only be heard when close to the
In the morning we found about one-third of
our meat eaten, one-quarter, hanging eight
feet high, had been pulled down and carried
about sixty yards. Although our meet was not
200 yards from us we heard not a sound during
the night In that direction. We had evidently
been trailed to our resting place before they
to'uched it.
'1 he disturbance in camp from these animals
finally became so great that I gave permission
to put out pison, and althou;;h we cuuld find
but one half-grown one we never again heard
their voices, mutch to my regret.
