NEWS OF THE BIG MEET.
Increase in tho League's Pennsyl
vania Hunks Is Large.
Special to tho Scranton Tribune.
Philadelphia, June 11. This year's
big accessions to league ranks from
Pennsylvania can be directly traced to
the energizing Influences accompany
ing the preparations for holding tho
Leaguo of the American Wheelmen
national meet in the metropolis of the
state. Since the news of Philadelphia's
success In securing the meet -was
Hashed over tho wires the division
membership has been nlmost doubled.
One year ago the Quaker City con
tained but one league club; now there
are four, and several other organiza
tions are endeavoring to secure tho
necessary percentage of league mem
bers to warrant the filing of applica
tions for League American Wheelmen
That abomination, the annual pa
,rade, which at former league meets
has been looked upon as a necessary
evil, will probably be dispensed with,
as it would undoubtedly take up val
uable time, which can be utilized by
the visitors 'to much better advantage.
That other time-honored nuisance, the
"annual photograph," will also prob
ably have to go by tho board, the Im
possibility of any very successful re
sult with the huge crowd that would
be sure to bo on hand having con
vinced tho executive committee that
the "game Is hardly worth the candle."
The "manufacturers' pageant" will
nlso be conspicuous by Its absence
that Is to say, the executive committee
will have no hand In the management
of such an exhibition.
