Chicago, Dec. 19. Warriors from the
Carlisle Indian school and students from
the Uuersity of Wisconsin will meet on
the football Held of the Coliseum tonight.
This is the first time In the history of the
game that a big match has been held at
Bight, and the result will hace much to
do with determining the form of West

The game will be -called at S o'clock.

Is a resident of Chicago, and McClung, of
Lehigh. The matter will not be settled
until the teams line up for the contest.
Both teams arrived in the city yester
day, and were the center of a cuiious
crowd. The Indians came early in tho
morning and attracted general attention.
The squad from Pennsylvania comprised
forty-three men, besides Disciplinarian

A C. Buckenberger, the ex-National
League manager, who, at the late meeting
of the Eastern League, introduced and
fought through the resolution agalnsffann
Ing," has bought the releases of Third
Baseman Sinilliand First Baseman Le.-olte,
of Pittsburg, for the Syracuse Club. It is
aid the price paid was $1,500. Lezotte
was purchased last year from Wilkesbaire,
and was given a trial on first base, but lie
failed to come up to expectations.
Anson, who has usually been willing to
play the national game under any rules
whatever, so long as the ball and lot were
not barred out, now comes forward with a
few suggestions. He would like rules so
framed that a manager could take a man
out and put him in the game again at his
discretion, and he would like to have all
reference to "trapped ball" eliminated, so
that the play could again ho worked to the
otter discomfiture of the base runner.
Then, if he League will undertake to de
fine a balk, und the umpires will under
take to enforce the rule against It, the vet
eran captain will be perfectly satisfied.

AMONG THEB1GYCLE CLUBS
What Is Doing With and With

MEETING DAYS AND RACES

cd and New Members) Added.
Tho local biryclo world, like Br'er Rab
bit, is layln' low until this cold weather
shall have p.isssed.
Not only are runs conspicuous by virtue
of their infrequency, but the clubs them
selves have undergone a metamorphosis,
quality. If not the appellation, of social and
pleasure clubs strictly and exclusively.
Like the popular coalescence of quinine
ami whisky, with thd quinine lertout, the
cycling clubs at present are bicjele clubs
with the bicycle left out.
Only spasmodic attempts are made In
the way of runs, whose participants are
generally two or three, and whose dis
tances are a matter of as many miles.
His a matter of considerable regret on
the part of the local wheelmen that the
two most popular roads, the Marlboro and
the Conduit, are In winter the most ex
posed to the assAJlla of "Old Iloreas." The
runner thoroughfare has the full benefit,
of the broad and comparatively level sur
face of Prince George farms, while the
'.Xeter aenue is hand In glove with tl-u
Potomao so far as river gales are con
cerned. Perhaps tho most satisfactory path to
the venturesome wheelman who seeks to
affiliate novelty and u certain amount of
danger with the smooth surface and favor
able meteorological conditions, Is the road
bed of the Pennsylvania railroad between
this city and llaltlmore. Unlike the Balti
more and Ohio, this roadway is gravel
ballaslcd, thus insuring n path between
the traikw as smooth, to all practical pur
poses, as a wax floor. This fact, taken in
conjunction with the protection from the
winter zephyrs, afforded by the Lorderlng
hills and forests, is thrusting the route into
thing to see ambitious knights of the pedal
streaking for Baltimore and return.
- COTTAGE AT TAKOM A.
The Cyclists' Cottage, at Takoma. still
allures a large coterie, who brave the ad
verse elements to get inside thec ttagcand
to get outside of the goodly array of
eatables atid drinkables stored therein.
Perhaps tho most formidable road althls
season is that bugbear of bugbears to the
cyclist's heart, the pike to llaltlmore, via
Bladcnsburg. It would doubtless be an
excellent idea to platea photograph of that
road In every clubhou.-e and every private
dwelling, in whose basement or hall re
poses a wheel.
There could be but one result: In contrast
other roads, and even O street, would
seem a waxed floor.
Looked at from a business standpoint the
local field Is decidedly dull. Some Tew or
the firms have received their consignments
of the new year's stock of wheels, but the
majority have yet to hear from headquar
ters in that connection. Prospective buy
ers are wniting for the market to become
more fully stocked before venturing Invest
ments. The renting departments of the various
stores are doing fairly active business and
the repair shops arc holding their own with
hands down. The future, however. Is or a
promising nature, and there Is every pros
pect for an encouraging trade the coming

Passengers on a Fourteenth-street cable
car, a few evenings since witnessed an
exciting Incident between Hon. George F.
Hoar, the senior iu;in her of the upper irousi
from the State of Massachusetts, and Mr.
C Tolson, the conductor of the train.
The venerable Senator from the Bay
State ha'l finished his arduous duties at
the Capitol, and was on his way home lbout
C o'clock in the evening.
At the corner of sixth street and Penn

sistance. THE CONDUCTOR'S ACT.
Everyone who has seen the Senator has
observed his stumbling gait, and Conductor
Tolson, noticing It, stood aside on the
platform, after opening tho dor.and, reach
ing down, caught the solou under the
arm and gave him a frleiid!) lift.
This was In accordance with the com
iun;' instructions to assist aged people,
and in fact Sai, nothing more than common
politeness and good manners, but the Sen
ator did not take kindly toit.and failing to
accept the kindness in the manner in wulch
it was intended, his wxath exploded.
According to the testimony of the passen
gers, the Senator's language was anstlilug
tint complimentary or expressive of grat
itude. He gave full vent to his seutliiivnti
regarding conduitors who do not mind thir
own buflness, and gave the man to under
stand that he was able to git on and off
a car without any body'i aid.
Immediately there was consternation in
the ear, and several passengers spoke to the
irate lawmaker, and attempted to pacify
him, but this only added fuel to the flume,
nnd the car was delayed for some few mo
ments, pending a sittlcnient of the diffi
culty RAISED HIS STICK.

said, ralcd his heavy walking Hick and

received was that upon a similar occasion
once in Bostontown, a street car conductor
had attempted to make him out an invalid
and as a reward had received a blow from
that cane which lnldlhe conductor up wish

time, he said, it would be Conductor Tol

The car was filled with passengers, but
all the way up to K street none dared to
speak louder than a whisper, while the
Senator continued to pour vials of wrath
upon the bead of the conductor.
At K street the car was again delayed,
while the conductor's name, number, and
the number ot his car were taken, &td
evcryliody breathed easier when the Sen
ator alighted, this time without assist
ance, and retreated, still shaking his big
cane at the car as it left him.
Among the passengers were Mrs. Powers,
wife of Rev. Dr. Powers, of the Vermont
Avenue Christian Church, and her daugh
ter, and a number of other prominent
people, who were surprised by the Sena
tor's intemiierate actions.
CONDUCTOR LAID OFF.
The next day Conductor Tolson was
called before Mr. Dunlop, the president of
the read, and listened to a three-paged
typewritten set of charges which Sen
ator Hoar had prepared against him, ac

clined to dismiss the matter, but this
would not satisfy the Bay State Senator,

the young man received notice yesterday
that his name would be dropped from the

loss of $G0 for his politeness.

Latter Days of the Month While Dr. McCoy's
Offices in Washington are Permanent, the $3
Opportunity Is Not It Positively Closes Janu
ary 1. and Will Under No .Circumstances Be
The extension of the S3 rate beyond the
.limit which Doctor McCoy first set for
It, that Is, November 1 , was made neces
sary liy the crowds or people who thronged
the office during the concluding days of
October. If Doctors McCoy and Cowden
had been twenty di-ctors Instead of two
doctors they could not have begun to have
cared for all the people during the last
twoorthreedaysof themontli. Man) were
turned away. It Is not part of Doctor Mc
Coy's plan to hurry patients, to nave his
offices uncomfortably crQWdcd or tocpni pel
patients to wait long hours before seeing
their physician. When he made the ex
tension or the rate, therefore, he made
the time ample and gun-nnii two full
month) ror the very purroko of avoiding
any more such scenes as those that char
acterlzed the concluding dajs of October
Ample notice having been given that
the opportunity positively closes January
1, anil that It will under no circumstaEces
or on no condition be extended beyond that
date. Doctor McCoy desires to add em
phasis to the purpose of this extension, to J
avoid the scenes of hurrying and comusion
which were so annoying to patients and
physicians alike. Dr. McCoy respectfully
asks, for his sake nnd for their sake, that
all tlmc who desire to avail themselves of
the opportunity of the $3 rale make their
application at once, rather than wait until
the- last few days of the month.
Doctor McCoy desires that no person be
denied this opportunity. He has done all
In his iiowcr to make the limit or time
known, and those who come during the
last days of Deceinlwr and find it is physi
cally liniwssible for Doctor McCoy t. fee
them will have only themselves to Wame,
when, after January 1, they are obliged
to pay Doctor McCoy's regular fee. for
while Doctor McCoy's office and Doctor
McCoy's practice arc permanent In Wash
ington, the period during which advant
age can be taken of the $3 rate is not
permanent; it ends positively with the
end of the year.
All who plnco themselves under
treatment beruro January lKt will
be treated until cured at the uni
form rate of S3 a mouth. TUIh rate
covers all expense ot examination,
treatment ana medicines and In
cludes) l)eafuess and all dl(.eaxe.

ungrateful if I did not add my testimony
to the vast number of those who have
stated In the public prints that Doctor
McCoy cured tuem ot Deafness. When
1 went to Doctor McCoy 1 was totally dear
in my lert car. A rrlcnd urged me to go
to him, and I placed myself under his
care. I first realized my hearing was
coming back by making a test with a
watch. I continued the test, with the

found I could hear as well with the left
car, which was totally deaf, as 1 could
with my right car. The restoration of
