A Full Second Clipped Off tha World's Bioord—Tha Garden Oltr Boy Achieves Fame Almost at a Bound. By the Associated Press. Sacramento, Oct. 16.—0n the 28th of September John S. Johnaon caused a sensation in bicycle circlee, the world over, by riding a mile at Waltham, Maße., in tbe phenomenal time of 1:50 3-5. Tbis wonderful feat waa eclipsed in this city today when Otto Ziegler, a member of the Rambler team, covered the mile in 1:50, clipping nearly a full second off the world's record. As a matter of fact he did ride the mile in a fraction oyer 1:10, bnt aa one of the eeveral watches made it 1:50 lint, the judgea placed the official time at that figure, Thia mile of voting Ziegler's ia tbe fastest ever run on a bicycle. It was made with a flying start and be waa paced by t indum teams, one taking bim to tbe three-eigbths, another to the five-eighths and the third pacing him to the outcome. Wben Johnaon made bia wonderful record and set the world's mark at 1:50 3 5 it was under the came condi tions and alter daya and days of re peated trials and failures, owing to poor pacing, unfavorable weather and other unnoyancea and obstructions euch as all bicyclists have to contend with who are hunt on reoord breaking. Jobneon, however, had an advantage of Ziegler— that of experienced tandem riders for pacemakerß—while to the young men who paced Ziegler tbe double wheel ia a new thing. The only experience they have had in tandem riding ia that gained since their arrival in thia city, lesa than two weekß ago. Therefore the record made by Ziegler today doeß credit ..' Hmcolf end hi a n«o»-.- 1 '^r O 'o Zimle tiBOK man mo Kambler loam did today over the Ag ß icultnrßl park course. It waa a typical Sacrnmento uutnmn ' day. The aity wan without a cloud and ' the temperature juat warm enough to enable the ridera to put forth their beat i energies. The mercury atood at 8G de ! itreea in the Bhade. There waa a light ; breeze (rem the northwest, and thia, it I waa feared, wonld not allow of record ! breakine speed, but Ziegler wbb in fine j form and determined to make tho effort. i If au'jceaalul he would in a few houre be come famous the world over, and if he failed he conld try attain another day. The riding waa done under the super vision of the Hacramento Athletic club's wheelmen, and under the ruleß ol the League of American Wheelmen, which inakea it the official record. The judges were H. A. Moore, A. W. Wil liams ana H. E. McCrea; timeta. C. Patten, U. li. Blair aud George Kneier; referee, W. A. Hubert; aturter, L. H. Upson. The pacemakers were Wells and Hall, Smith and Oaen, Delmas and Hamlin. Quite a number of spectatora were present when the ridera appeared on tbe track and went their warming-up mile. They came up for the word under aplen did headway and as the pistol oracked the tandem men were almost flying with Ziegler'a wheel almost touching theirs. The quarter waa mado in 27 fecouda, bnt tne pickup of the second tandem team wae poorly done, ond just before the half waa reached the men all slowed up. A- it waa tho time to the half waa but GU 2-5 eeconue. Tbe men jogged borne from that point, and after a rubdown and a abort breathing Bpell, they again appeared. Again the atart waa a fine one, and when the quarter waa reached in 26 3-5 the epeotatora—who had held their breathe almoat from the start—breathed Ireoly. "He'll do it aure," cried several ex perienced wheelmen. "Beo tbe little demon!" yelled an other. "Good-bye, Mr. Johnson." The pick-np by tbe second tandem team was beantifnlly done. Not a frac tion of a second was lost, and away sped the pacemakers with Ziegler co close npon them that they looked like a trip let team. The half-mils post waa passed in the phenomenally fast time of 53 3-5 sec onds. Aronnd the turn the wheelmen fairly flew, looking like three orange-colored balls rolling beyond tbe low inaide fence. Near the three-quarter pole Delmas and Hamlin were getting under way and by tbe time the others came up they were at their luli speed. Thia was another perfect pick up nnd tbe wheel men at the score were fairly trembling with excitement and enthuaiaem aa the watchee ticked off 1:23. Ziegler still bad 27 3-5 seconds in wbich to equal Johnson's record and there was no reason to fear he would not beat it, for the freeh tandem ridera were bringing him down the course at a tremendous rate of speed. When within about 00 yarda of the wire, Ziegler, wbo had been riding al most on top of hia fresh and apeedy pacemakers, could wait no longer, and shooting out to one aide he flew past them and passed under the wire, aa al ready statod, in a fraction under 1:50. Then there wbb excitement among tbe wheelmen. They shouted, threw their hnta into tbe air and acted like a lotof"kida" at play. Wheu the pink cheeked San Joee boy—Ziegler ia little more than a boy—returned to the score tbore was a ruah made for him and he waa almost emootbered with the em braces of his fellow wheelmen. Two of the Ramblers lifted bim oil' hia wheel and upon tbeir ehoulderß and carried him to the dreaaing room, where, for the next half hour he was buaeiged witb congratalatione. There ia no doubt that be conld have lowered the record (ully two aeconda more had the pacemakera been able to bad him. The only other event of the day waa L. S. Upeou'a paced mile, flying start, which he made in 2:00'.j. The best previoua coas' record waa 2:15, mado laßt year by Edwarda in thia oity. Up son is in class A, and his pacemakera, Beeler and Deedmau and McCrea and O'Neil, had had no practice on tandem wheela. Tomorrow Edwarda, of the Rambler team, will go against the world's mile record of 1:57 3-5, standing atart, made by H. C. Tyler at Waltham, Maaa,, on August 3:1, last.

Thia overflowing and spontaneous domonatra tion waa not necessary to tell yon of the warmth anddeptb of our alfection. We bave known you too long and too well for that.

Speaking of hia treatment abroad be said: "From one und all in tho coun try to which I have been accredited baa come to me nothing but the moat un bounded courtesies and kindneea. Every where I found tbe name of America whb received with honor, euoli as I believe has been extended to no other people than ourselves. From the venerable lady, .whose virluos so illustrate the happy reign over a contented peoplo, from the officials down to the very heart of the people in the mass, I have found nothing bnt friendly and kind worde." "I went es a friend; I have beon re ceived as a friend.

"I come back to America only loving my country the more.

He had an audience of 300 voters, and held them for an boor. He was fre quently interrupted by enthuaiaatic ap plauae. He devoted himaelt largely to (denunciation and exposure of the cor- Fruption of the Southern Pacifio control of tbe etato government and legislature. He also told the voters plainly tbat t ba only chance they had to relieve them selves of the enormous and unjust bur dens placed upon tbem by Huntington and hia allies waa thiß year.

Against tho Republican Con- gressional Uommlttee Denied. Washington, Ojt. 16. — Chairman Babcock of tbe Republican congressional committee today came into possession of an advance copy of a pamphlet which he is informed is being printed for yu eral circulation, in which he is charged with circulating A. P. A, literature and with being in sympathy with thnt or ganization. The pamphlet consists largely of newspaper letters from Wash ington which profesa to give facta going to substantiate the charges, liiscussiug tbe matter, Mr. Babcock said: "The atory ia made out of whole cloth. This publication ia but the climax of numerous elTortß that have been made to rind grounda for charging such connection. Men and women have called personally here at our head quarters and asked for the literature of thia order, and when we have replied we bad none for distribu tion, we have been appealed to to know where it could be obtained. To thia wo have responded that we did not know, aa wo bed no connection with the A. P. A. or any other order. We have made the Bame reply to letters ol the same character. 'Mb a matter of fact," he added, "as much aa a year ago 1 gave mat motions to the aocretaries of tho committee to avoid all appearance of connection with any organization of whatever kind of character, except Republican commit tees. We have taken the position tbat it ia not our business to attempt to make platforms, and have devoted ouraelvea to tbe dietribution of literature in ac cordance with the former platforms and acknowledged doctrines of the Repub lican party. Hence, 1 any again, tha charges made iv the pamphlet which the Democratic committee is preparing to distribute is entirely devoid of truth.'

Thia action was also ordered to be taken in case a writ of habeas corpus had been asked for and refused. JSkw York, Oct. 10.—Devi P. Morton's coachman, John .1. Howard, who has been detained at Kliis island as a con tract laborer and whose return to Eng land wns ordered by Secretary Carliele, today signed a petition for a writ of habeaa corpus which his attorney, Frank Piatt, will present tomorrow in the United Stateß court.

New York, On. 10.—The following appeal waa iaauod today at the Demo cratic state headquarters in the Park-, avenue hotel by Senator Charlea 8. Faulkner, chairman of the Democratic congrcaeional committee: "Forty days ago, by reason of tbe dis satisfaction at the slow action of con gress in passing a tariff bill and a vary general misunderstanding of the charac ter of the bill which was ultimately passed, wo had but little hope ol carry ing a majority of the F.lty-fourtb con gress.
