JOIXT CLUB INDOOR MEET Hope to Attract Out-af-Town Ath letes HowleiH and Basketball Players Heated C. A. C. Tonr neys TuR-of-"Var C. I. Ail Around 2d en. The season Is growing apace, and yet there are no blgns of tlie Joint club indoor championship athletic and gymnastic meet, which it was promised last season would be one of the leatures of this winter's events. Tlie idea of having such an affair under the combined auspices of all tlie organiza tions here having athletic depaitnientb was at the time of the suggestion in this col luinn must favorably received, but on accountof the lateness, of the season, ac tion was deferred until this season. The idea is to have clubs who have all- round men, or specials In tins or that line of athleticb, to come together and arrange a program of competitions for the local championship, either for total club points or indhldual supremacy. If such an event Is to lie held, now Is the tune to get together and fix a date. Fix it far enough ahead to give the probable entrants plenty of .time to prepare aud truln for the event. To make it still more attractive and not have it purely .a -ocal event, it should be an open affair, and no doubt a laige num ber of entiles fiom other cities could be obtained, and as it has been a long time since we have had visiting competing ath letes I have ro Ooubt many would be glad to come and enjoy the hospitalltj for which wc are i oted, and at the same time try for honors in our midst. Tiie matter of expenses-, including cost or prizes, could verj- easilj lie defrayed out of tlie receipts for admission of spectators and from entrance fees. Whj i ot do toinetliing or this kind, and again make our city i roininent in ath letics, or at least again draw attention to itas one of the athletic centers? We have enough good athletes here in the various lines to make it interesting for all comers. It would at least put our boj.s on their mettle and caii'-c them to perfect them selves, and earn local honors by defeating other local entiles. Howling and Basketball L,eniuc8. The holiday week had its uEUal effect upon the athletic features of the several clubs, and phjsical instructors found but little to do. The bowling leagues, both major and second team, rested from their labors, and only the one set, that in the second team league, was plajed. The work of die Baengerbund team in the big league is one of the surprises of the season, and tint it now leads the league, is the result of good, strong bowling, the natural effect of regular practice and the bowlers right proudlj wear the reward of merit. The Carrolls and Washington Atliletics are dividing honors between them, and from present indications the former, the champions of two seasons, will find It no easj matter to beat the latter out. The Basketball League teams, too, have taken a week off, aud in some Instances have put in the time in practice, preparing for tlie fifteen games remaining to be played. The btrong piny will be the struggle for second place. The surprise of the benesis the tenacity with which the W. A. C. team clings to last place, very much nioreowmg to hard luck than poor play ing, for the team has improved a great deal In its ivork, and generally puts up a good game. Its prebent position may be due, also, to the fact that the majoritj' of its games have been against thestrongest teams. It will, no doubt, better its posi tion when the weaker ones in the schedule come on for games. Columbia Athletic Club. The bowling committee or the Columbia Athletic Club is arranging a schedule for the next club championship event, which will have its beginning next week, and five back, nine pins and ten phis will follow each other in rapid succession. Tlie nine pin tournament revived to a great extent the interest in bowling. It is quite probable that a billiard and a pool tourney will be held at an early day. In lot)i these games the club is strong in plaj'ers and for each event there would be large entrj lists. The making up of the indoor tug-of-war teams will begin shortly, and their first ap pearance willbeatthe nextathletlcsmoker. The teams will be made up mostly from anions the football plaj'ers. Franz is keeping up his practice In pole vaulting and handily goes over the bar at ton feet and a fraction. Midge Ross, Allen and Lj'ons are adding new movements and tricks to their acro batic and brother act. It is quite likelj' that the successful "athletic smoker" of a fortnight ago will be repeated duiing this month. Carroll Institute Athletics. The gj mnasium classes of Carroll Insti tute have taken up fome new drill work arranged bj- l'rof. Jojce for systematic training, and each class night, Tuesdajs and Tridays, finds from lortj to fifty men on the floor. The ladies' classes will resume work to morrow afternoon from 3:30 to B o'clock, and on Monday and Thursday during the rest of the season. The Junior basketball team will play its return game with W. A. C. on Friday even ing next, in the gymasiiim of the latter. Among the regular workers in the gymnasium-are John Dolan, Joe Beckley, W. Swelland, H. Smith, J. Johnson, and Al bert Littiefield, and their work promises to be of a high order. Downej- continues his good, all-round work. Locraft continues in every game the splendid steady bowjing which helped so much to win the championship last year. The next game scheduled for the C. I. alleys is for January 8, with W. A. O. On the 13th instant the second or re serve team will play on the W. A. C. alleys, and on tlie same night the basketball team will play the Eastern Athletic Club in the Infantry armory. Light Infantry Athletics. The basketball team of the Washington Light Infantry devoted itself to bardprac tlce during the week in preparation for its contest with the Carrols last night. The gymnastic contingent also'took up its work with renewed vigor. The basketball team has for several weeks been crippled by the illness and ab sence of Roycc Hough and Jesse Schaffirt, both of whom are now, however, in shape for the game. The substitutes who pla j-ed, filled their places very acceptably. Erwinis a most promising substitute and he has made himself invaluable to the team. Shrove and McCabe, while their record has been surpassed by others, have done some phenomenal goal throwing. Big McRae Ib keeping himself in condi tion, and during the coming open season will make himself heard from in the ham mer and weight events.

The team had intended to enter the Brooklyn basketball teournej' on Jnnunij' 30, but It was found that several of the best players will find It impossible to get away and on that account the trip has been abandoned Manager Robinson announces that he will be satisfied with the District cham pionship If he can land it. The price of admission to the games in the armory has been fixed at 1 r cents for gentlemen, and 10 cents for ladies. Tne old ball with which the chain piouRtiip was won last season suddenly collapsed in practice last week and the plajers felt as if they had lost a good friend and champion. The ball will be given a prominent place among the Infantry trophies. Company A has issued invitations for its annual reception and hop to be' held at the nimory tills month. These annualaffairsare considered among the most delightful events in local military circles, and the committee having this one in chaige will endeavor. If possible, to make it even more attractive than former ones. O. P. SCHMIDT. LOCAL SPORTING GOSSIP. Lou Newmeyr is now with his brother, who runs a big clothing house on Seventh street. The genial Lou lias deherted the sporting fraternity. He sajs tlie boxers broke him, and from this time on he is out with them. He will be content with a comfortable living, which any man can gain with industrj-, and the boxers and other sports can have their spasms of pros perity. He will take the steadj' and sure thing. The friends of Mr. John Raedj-, the well known and popular restaurant keeper of North Capitol street, are pleased over his success this season with his horscH. Mr. Raedy has a filly that lie put into training last spring as a two-j ear-old, and which, it is stated on excellent authoritj', has de veloped w onderf ul speed as a trotter. Tlie filly Is very highly bred, and It is said gives every promise of doing borne sensational work next jear. She is, in fact, so it is claimed, the next thing to a prcdigj-. No one who knows Raedy and the faithful waj lie has worked to get a good one will be grudge him his good fortune. Hite Pcckham saj'b that the report pub lished recently that he and Pat Raedy were matched to box was wholly without foun dation. "But," said Hite, "I'm willing to match with him if Pat doesn't object. He said I ought to make a pretty good show, and I'll promise j'ou that if we come together one of us will get licked." Peck ham sajs he will have no trouble about backing and can accommodate Raedy with any reasonable amount. It is conceded on all sides that a bout between Peckham and Raedy would create a huge amount of in terest. Echoes of the Moore-Raedj' boxing con test are still to be heard. While tlie majoritj- of those who saw the bout believe it to have been an up-and-up affair and are well satisfied with it, there are others who do not hesitate to very emphatically de clare that it had a very fakey appearance. That Moore holds the first place in the thiid row of fighters in his class in this countrj can hardly be disputed, and those who know his standing in his profession figured that Raedj would surely be an easj' mark for him. But they figured poorlj. Moore, it is generally conceded, was In wretched con dition, but Raedj, from the first to the last of the controversy, made a showing that astonished even his most ardent ad mirers, and thoy arc now indulging in some extravagant and unwise talk. In fact, tliey are now praising Pat as second to none of the middle-weights, and are on a fair way to get him into senous unpleasantness if they back tlieir expicssed belief with monej'. Pat bears with mod-estj- the flattery heaped upon him. All the books of the Julius Lansburgh Furniture Co. were saved from the recent fire, and those owing any money to the firm will confer a great favor by calliug soon and settling their indebtedness. Let them scream as loud as they can, and use the big gest type they can find yet they cannot get down to our rock-bottom prices for men's fine clothing. Don't get rat tled!

Shortly after this mishap, Forstor, In making the turn at the south bank, was crowded and narrowly escaped going into the audience. As it was his wheel was smashed against a post and he was thrown with great violence. Nothing daunted, however, the nervy rider speedily got another machine and was soon in full purriultot the bunch, which had gained a lap on him. They Settled, Pown. From this point until half an hour be fore the finish of the nice tlie men settled down to a steady pace,, which was only varied by an occasional change of the leading pacemaker. Just before lOo'clock Aslunger spurted for the first time, but he was speedil y overtaken by little Hunter and the bunch, who shortly commenced a gallant sprint on his own account.

At the flash of the rirst pistol the greatsprinter shot fronr the bunch like an arrow from the bow. Lvery nnisclu of his lithe, grace ful body was tense and strained in his magnificent iffort to cut down the lead of the powerful German, who had held it so persistently for five days.
