BIKEOMANIA The Wheel Is Supreme in Washington "DROMEDARY FOR DUDES" IS USED BY STATESMEN, CLER ICS AND JUDGES The Bicycle Has Supplanted the Horse and Is Strictly de Riguer at the Capital Special Corresponaence to The Herald. WASHINGTON, D. C, June 17.—That scoffing individual who characterized the bicycle as a "dromedary for dudes," evidently did not abide in Washington, where even' Uncle Sam has pinned up his coattails and joined the scorchers. Nowhere else does the new disease known as blkeomania rage with great er virulence. It spares neither age nor sex, dignity nor avoirdupois', and while, like grim death, it has all seasons for Its own in this city of Incomparable streets, its worst symptoms are aggra vated In summer time by that longing for all out doers which is by no means confined to the vagabond and the bare foot boy. It affects the gravest sen ator, posing or.' the sugar trust and the tariff; the polished diplomat who dan dles the fate of nations in his perfumed hand?; the black-gowned Judge of the supreme court; the mighty member of the cabinet; the minister of the Gospel, whose business it Is to point the path to heaven (would that the "straight and narrow" were a bicycle path)—and aii solemnly hump themselves over their wheels and take to the open. THE HOFSE SUPPLANTED A few years ago the noble horse fur nished the favorite out-door amuse ment of Washington, and riding schools and equestrian clubs abounded. Then every one of the Jeunesee doregot him self up in riding togs more "English you know" than were ever worn in England, and the damsels of upper tendom were veritable Di Vc-rnons in following the hounds and the pink coats on paper chases. But now how great the change' The four-footed charger is quite out of fashion, and the cheerful clatter of his hoof-beats on our smooth asphalt is superseded by the soft whirr, whirr of the flashing steel steed. To enumerate the devotees of the wheel among the great ones whose names are as house hold word? would be to count the leaves In the vale of Vallambrosa. Down be neath the rotunda of the capitol. a deep, dark vault, which reminds one of the prison of Chillon. with ils pillars of Gothic mold, has been converted into a bicycle stable for the convenience of senators and representatives. Durine session of congress not only is the vault crowded to its utmost capacity, but the overflow cumbers the adjacent offices and corridors. One is amazed' at the numher of silent steeds, standing all day long in solemn rank?, with never a mer ry whinney. They are of every known make and latest tiuitk of improvement Dame Rumor has it that few of the law makers exchanged coin of the realm for these shining chargers, but that the manufacturers find sufficient recom pense in the statement, "The Hon. Mr. So-and-So rider: a ." SENATORS AWHEEL Among the senators are many who have not only thrown dignity to the winds sufficiently to take an occasional tumble in. the dust, like common folk, but, have become as expert in retaining their seats, upon the tricky machine a«'in the political band- wagon. The oldest senator does not indulge—as yet—but his youngest colleague, Senator Butler, of North Carolina, does quite enough of It for both of them. The senior senator from California, Mr. George Clement Perkins, of Oakland—regardless of his 60th mile'stor.e looming up not a year ahead—finds time every week to add a good many miles to his famous record as a wheelman. Just at present he is qualified to pose as a living picture of a Greek patriot, by reason of a recent en counter with a cart; but as a rule he comes unscathed from the war-path. Senator Charles J. Faulkner of West Virginia is one of the few who have nerve enough to array Uhemselvea in conventional bicycle costume, for among the wearers of the toga a deep seated prejudice seems to exist' against the curtailed garments. Talk about vanity being a feminine trait! In almost every instance the short trousers and g/ay, turned-down hose are not seen on spindle-shanks, but on plump legs, whose owners are justly proud of them. Senator Faulkner. In, correct togs and the courage of his convictions, seldom fails to improve a shilling hour or two every day by an excursion to Cabin John Bridge, or to Overlook, or Falls Church, or some other favorite point a few miles off. He is frequently accom panied by his wife and her youn.g step daughters—for all the ladies of the Faulkner clan are enthusiastic cyclers. Mrs. Faulkner, by the way. is wife num ber two, ar.d young enough to be often mistaken for one of the daughters, while the senator himself is exactly 50 years young Senator William E. Chandler, of Con cord, N. H., rides to and fro every day between the capltol and his home, and such is the regularity of the little inter lude In his proverbially methodical life, that his spldeiy legs serve as sun-dials on the avenue to mark the hour. Sena tor Wolcott emerges from beneath a mountain drift of documents concerning the monetary tangle and mingles with the herd awheel. Senator Kyle, of North Dakota, seldom misses his af ternoon Fpin, and is usually accompan ied by his pretty daughter for a pace maker. Seriali.r Warren pigeon-holes the cares of state whenever he- ran and chases the fiery and untamed cyclometer to the limit. Senator Elkins is said to possess a rare amount of bike technique which he is anxious to impart to every luckless wight with whom he can catch up. In this line it Is noticeable that when antipodal politicians meet awheel and agree upon technique, they are as Damon and Pythias—out beyond the shadow of the capitol dome. AVhat a pity that Senators .Morgan and Hale cannot settle their Cuban quarrel in this manner—for a? yet the venerable Alabamlan rides nothing but his hob bies. As to bicycle clothes In the senate, perhaps the palm is carried o« by Benj. Ryan Tillman of South C( rolina. It has been suggested that he 01 rfct to set up a coat of arms to go with the new suit, something on the order of a field argent, with bicycle current and ] Itchfork ram rant. In short, about one-fourth of the grave and reverend seigneurs And time for exhilarating spins, and close observers assert that the eflect of pure air and improved digestion is already plainly apparent In more geVerous and amicable legislation. I CANNON THE CYCLIST In the lower house, the prorWtion of those who ride the wheel is- very much greater, including fully half tnt repre sentatives. Uncle Joe Cannos ftads tt. van as the first and oldest syejer. Th; veteran member from Illinois iaas for.v of his bike as a boy in his teens.l He has not yet adapted golf trousers, jUt has a way of securing his ordinary ■■unmen tionables" at the ankles so that they won't get snarled up In the chain thai looks for all the world as if h|e had tucked them Into his boot-legs prepara tory to a plowing match. He always smokes a cigar awheel, even whejn rid ing ln the teeth of the wind; and to ex pert and fearless i 9 he that nobody would be surprised to see him cart-crips down the west capltol steps s-ome day That feat Is considered by cyclers'to be a little more hazardous, than the historic one performed by General Israel Put nam when he escaped from the British soldiers. But it was lately accomplish' by a professional, who skipped from th' lofty top like a bird, without touchi:::; a stair after the first half dozen, ano landed in a heap at the bottom—with no bones broken either of man or steed. "TOM AND JERRY" Speaker Reed Is not now riding r. wheel. I asked him why, and was not ruled out of order, as one might expect With customary modesty he said that he could and did ride well, but he was no! doing much cycling at present. The fact is. he rode just once, and met his Water loo. Among the pioneer cyclers in th<; house is Hon. Jerry Simpson, the Kan sas Populist. As long ago as the Fifty third congress he and the Hon. Tom Johnson used to run the gauntlet of ko dak sharks and jeering gamins from the capltol steps to the district line. Mr. Simpson enjoyed the exercise "might ily," to use his own term, and didn't mind the gamins-but the kodaks were indeed a thorn In the flesh. And no wonder, if he once caught a glimpse of a snapshot of himself or, a w heel! Some body accurately described him in thai attitude as resembling a comb all back and teeth. Those early tendencies to bike dissipation on the part ot the Hon Jerry caused no end of agita tion among his constituents, and he haii to do a great deal of explaining out lr Kansas. Whether his retirement for a couple of years had any connection with the agi tation I cannot say. He sold his wheel before leaving Washington and bough: a Texas pony for use on his native heath. But things are different now that the bicycle ha 9 become as common as the plow—even in Kansas. The other day Mr. Simpson was heard to tell a friend that just' as soon as he got his hands on his next month's salary, if h: had anything left after paying his bills, he was going to buy a wheel that woull cause his colleagues to turn several dif ferent shades of plstache. THE PIONEER Theflrst statesman from the wiregrass region of the south to contract bike phobia was Representative Clayton of Alabama, and he "took to it," so he says, as a cure for corpulency. Several of the younger Ohio representatives m«st of the far western members and many from the Middle states confess frankly to that pneumatic tired feeling which makes the hours of this summer session unduly long and leads them to scour all the adjacent rouds like a March breeze. The conservative ones —those who still look upon the wheel as a de vice of the devil or a "dromedary for dudes"—almost, to a man hail from puritanical New England (the pari where witches were burned), or from those unprogressive portions of the south where the natives are still voting for Andrew Jackson and "Maesa Lin kum " CABINET MINISTERS TOO Among other shining lights of capital society who commit themselves to the vicissitudes of cycling may be men tioned Secretary Gage and Attorney General UcKenna, and two or three others among the president's "silent partners." The only member of the last cabinet who rode was the Hon. Hoke Smith, and his 270 pounds held the wheel down well at its work. Judge White is the only one of the supreme court jus tices who has as yet exchanged the awesome robe for the bicycle surtout. but it is understood that two others art about lo "follow suit" in a double sense. In foreign circles the diplomats might as well he mentioned en masise, or rather in the lump, from Sir Julian Pauncefote down to the newest secretary, Senor Don Domingo Gana. whose translated cognomen would lead Mr. Sundu> Gar.a. the minister from Chile, was the last to learn. The two little sens of the Spanish ambassador are famous riders, and tiheir bcatlful mother, Mme. Dupuy de Lome, is taking lessons. The Baro ness Hengetnuller, wife of the ambassa dor from Austria, is an accomplished rider, and her two little daughters arc learning the art. She is a queenly woman and looks exceedingly w ell in the short but modest dress which the wheel re- QUirea. By the way. the bloomered maid, if she ever did exist, Is not seen ln Wash ington, ar.d if she would make her ap pearance would surely be known as-hav ing no claims to moving in good society. The Misses Bike, daughters of the ex senntor from Ohio, were great wheel woman; so are Mrs. 17. S. Grant's grand daughters. Phil Sheridan's twins, Dl. Talmage's daughter, and in short about all the younger women of Washington. Gen, Miles is an expert wheelman. Gen. Greely of Arctic fame rides a great deal With his wife and daughter. At the Chi nese legation several of the gentlemen have adopted the American invention with enthusiasm, though at the peril of their queue and voluminous apparel. Mr. s. K. a. Sze, the Anst secretary, has I become experi. bhougb compelled to ride | a ladles' wheel on account of the silken petticoats which the diplomatic customs of his native land require him to retain. AXO THE CLOTH Among ministers of the gospel who I have taken to the wheel for exercise arid I amusement, Key. Dr. Newman, of the Fttel Congregational church, was the pioneer, for he rode as far back as/18108, When there were hardly a thousand cyc lers ln Washington, where now are 10.- ObO or so. X' v. Dr. McKim, of the | Church of the Epiphany, ar.d Dr. Mack> ; Smith have set the example for other Episcopalians. Ilis-hop Hurst of the |M. E. Church has lately learned, and it !Is announced that Bishop Satterlee is about to begin private practice. For j three or four years past the wheel has | been particularly popular with the LOS, ANGELES HERALD. SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 26, mt Roman Catholic clergy ln America— despite the gen-eral understanding that the pope, about a year ago. Issued an edict against priests as cyclers. If such an edict was ever Issued—a thing to be doubted—lt was Intended to apply to priests only who wear the cassock. In the streets as well as Indoors; and that, as we know. Is not practiced In this country. Rev. Father Bart, of St Matthew's church. Is an excellent cyc list; so is Father Ilannan. of St. Paul's, and Father Foley and dozens of others. Father Hannan always goes on his I wheel when visiting the sick and mak ing parish calls. He rides In a cut ! away coat, derby hat and clamps on his trousers, and has even carried the Sacra- i ment in this manner to a dying parish- | letter. Why not, as well as in a car riage or on the back of a horse? BRIGHAM. STATE FUNDS It Pays to Remunerate the Treasurer With a Large Salary The loss of state funds by neglect, embezzlement or error Is no unusual thing, and In the opinion of some per sons the Inadequacy of the pay of state treasurers has something to do with this. The more progressive states, as a usual thing, pay their treasurers the highest salaries and those which have had the most serious defalcations pay the least. In some states the treasurei is empowered to lend public funds. The New' York Sun says that as a rule the provisions for keeping state funds safe are much less stringent and comprehen sive than those regulating the custody of the public funds of cities. Here is a list taken from the journal above mentioned of salaries paid the different state treasurers: The state debt of Missouri Is $5,500,000. but the state treasurer of Missouri, who is the custodian of the public moneys, receives a salary of only $3000, $1000 more than a New York alderman and $2000 less than the city of New York pays the mayor's secretary. Minnesota has a debt of $2,000,000, and the state treas urer receives $3500 as salary. The state treasurer of New Hampshire, the debt of which is $1,700,000, gets $1800 a year, and the state treasurer of Michigan re ceives $800 a year for his valuable ser vices. The state debt of Alabama is nearly $10,000,000, but the state treasurer of Alabama, the lawful custodian of its public funds, gets only $2100. The state treasurer of Arkansas gets $2250. and the state treasurer of California $3000. Nevada pays her state treasurer $2400, Mississippi pays her state treas urer $2500, and Washington pays her state treasurer $2000. The state treas urer of West Virginia receives $1400 a year for his services, and the treasurer of South Carolina, the bonded debt of which is $6,000,000, receives $1950, which is $50 a year less than the salary of the state treasurer of Virginia, the public debt of Virginia being $23,000,000. The state treasurer of Vermont, a common wealth whose finances are in a flourish ing condition, gets $1700 a year; the treasurer of lowa, which has no public debt, but has public funds in excess of any claims against them, gets $2200, and the treasurer of Delaware, which has a considerable debt, gets $2000. Georgia pays her treasurer the same sum, $2000, but Connecticut, one of the rich est of the states, and one in which the credit of the commonwealth is very high, pays only $1500, which is $500 less than the treasurer of Florida receives for safeguarding Its assets. The treasurer of Louisiana receives $2000, of Mary land $2500 and of Kentucky $3600. Idaho pays her state treasurer only $1000 and Oregon $800. The state treasurer of New- York receives $5000; the state treasurer of Massachusetts, $5000; the state treas- urer of Colorado (women vote in Col orado), $6000, and the state treasurer of Pennsylvania, $7400. The state treas urer of New Jersey receives $6000, and North Carolina, though a poor state, pays her state treasurer the same sal ary as she pays her governor. What Bicycle Police Can Bo The police department of New York city has twenty-nine bicycle police. These individuals patrol various parts of the city on wheels, on the alert for the "scorcher" and other offenders who vio late the laws against fast driving. In cidentally they perform other offices, as shown in the report Just issued by the department and covering the year ended January 1, 1897. In this report we read that the number of arrests made by bicycle policemen during the year were 1318 and the fines collected $4812. As the yearly expenditure for salaries ag gregated $32,000, the fines collected rep resented only about one-eighth of the expense. Two persons were arrested for crap shooting, three for insanity, seven for vagrancy, two boys for making bonfires, and one man for assault and intoxica tion. One arrest was made of a man who obstructed the street with a push cart, one of a man carrying a pistol without a permit, one for blllpoetlng, four persons for cruelty to animals and one for attempted suicide. There were 159 arrests for scorching and sixty-three for intoxication. Holland's Queen Objected The young queen of Holland objectsto the present issue of Dutch postage stamps which represent her as a child, with h°r hair flowing down her back.

M'CORD'S FATE Now the Charge Is of an Attempt to Bribe WILL BE DEMOCRACY'S GAIN SONORA'S BIG ORANGE SHIP MENTS TO THE EAST A Republican Family Affair That May End in a Row—Discovery of a Clipping Bureau PHOENIX, Ariz., June 21.—Whatever may ultimately be the'fate of Colonel Myron H. McCord, his name will surely go down in territorial history as that of the gubernatorial candidate who, played positively the longest engage ment, both at Washington and Phoenix, of any Arizona politician prior to this year of suspense, 189 T. Yesterday—or was It the day before— the confirmation of McCord's nomination was merely a trifle of red tape that would be consummated beyond all shadow of doubt within the next thre> or four hours. In fact, the senate had already formally decided upon this, course and collectively wired its views to both of the Phoenix morning papers. And yet—well—the McCord confirmation still hangs fire, and it was Senator White of Los Angeles who requested the temporary withdrawal of McCord'sname in order to give the committee still an other chaYice to Investigate still further charges. ATTEMPTED BRIBERY CHARGED Now it's bribery that's charged. I wonder if there Is a crime in the penal code that McCord has not been charged with. But this one, even on its face, does not appear to be very serious. It seems that McCord wanted the government to locate an Indian school on a tract ad joining hist property in Wasihir.gton and that he offered Inspector Gardner $2000 if the latter would locate the school where he wanted it. Business Is business, and as business goes this is merely a business proposi tion. The Phoenix Republican sayj as much this morning, and declares that If McCord is to be punished for seeking the location of a federal Institution in his town, then the city of Phoenix, which raised a bonus) of $6000 for the location of the Indian school here. Is equally guilty and should likewise be punished. Ferhaps there is a difference between try ing to bribe a government official and taising a bonus to secure a government improvement—and perhaps there isn't. My own opinion is that neither Mr. Mc- Kinley nor the other supporters of this muchly accused man McCord can see the difference —if there is any. DEMOCRACY WLL WIN And whether McCord tried to bribe Gardner or whether he didn't, is not a vital question now. McCord has been chargedw Ith much worse things, and with the backing of the president has withstood them all. He will withstand this one —and even others, if they should be urged against him. This rather post mortem fight is getting very tiresome. Why any Democrats should indulge In It is a riddle that only a professional politician could answer. When in Prescott recently I heard several good Democrats declare that the McCord fight was a Republican family affair In which outsiders had no right to Interfere. And I think this Is .the proper view to take of the matter, though several of the Democratic office holders here have gone out of their way to oppose McCord—even after the presi dent had sent his name to the senate. Now, as a matter of fact, the terri torial Democracy will gain considerably from the appointment of McCord. There seems to be not the slightest doubt of that, for already the Republican, Mc- Cord's strongest backer in the territory, has on several occasions intimated that McCord was only mortal and that mor tals find it difficult to rise above the sweetness of revenge. It has been re marked that Colonel McCord is gifted with a long memory. Whereupon the Herald, Republican, has caustically remarked that If Mc- Cord comes, home looking for trouble he will probably be able to find It. And disinterested persons, who are watch ing things, declare outright that Mc- Cord's appointment presages a complete split in the Republican party of Ari zona. In view of all this. I submit that it would be "good politics" for good Dem ocrats to say nothing and saw wood. PERALTA-REAVIS AGAIN. It looks very much as though the old Peralta-Revlo Spanish grant case Is going to play another engagement on the boards. Attorney E. D. Garza of Monterey, Mexico, who saysi he repre sents 800 or so of the heirs who now reside at San L,uis Potosi, has turned up at Santa Fe and Informed the Land Commission that he is prepared to spend even more money than did Reavls ln pressing the old claim. He say® he has all the documents complete and his title is as clear as the noon-day sun on the Y'uma desert. It cost Reavls about $300,000 to get himself in prison over this case. In view of which circum stance, and the statement of Mr. Garza that he will ttpend even more, it seems nit untimely to remark that the law business is as good as could be ex pected In the Southwest. This Peralta grant embraces the City of Phoenix and about all of the Salt Rivrr Valley. Corner lots and ranch properties, are selling for Just as much as they were before Attorney Garzo was heard from, however, andi the real es tate market remains firm and tltlre se cure. Nobody but the lawyers and the newspaper correspondents Is worrying much about the matter, anyway, and Mr. Garza may fire as soon as he pleases. While they are fixing up the tariff PChedUle for the Eastern trusts and manufacturers, here is an item of pe culiar interest to the Republican* of Southern California: Two years ago the Mexican State of Sonora shipped 89 carloads of oranges to the Eastern States. During the year Just passed 168 carloads of Sonora oranges went to Chi cago, to St. Louis and Ne_w York, and the predictions are that the Sonora ship ments for the coming year will exceed 300 carload's. If Southern California could interest some wail street capital ln Southern California oranges, things might be dif ferent. Governor Franklin has appointed the following gentlemen as delegates to the Transmlssissippl commercial congress, which meets at Salt Lake City, July 14th: C. T. Hay den. Tempe; N. A. Morford, Phoenix; C. W. Wright, Mose Drach man, Tucson; W. O. O'Neill. J. W. Nor son, Prescott; B. E. Elllnwood, Flag staff. There are three more delegates to be appointed who will be named by the governor tomorrow. ♦As a striking example of the exalted utility of the übiquitous press clipping bureau I desire to instance the fact that one of these bureaus has made the discovery of a more or less brilliant young paragrapher on the Saturday Evening Press of Phoenix, to wit: That the author of these letters has been "cribbing" from a certain unworthy and obscure individual named Luke North. That the scribbling* of Luke North should be deemed worthy of "cribbing," even by the hand that scribbled them, Is an accusation altogether too flattering for the present writer to discuss. The circumstance, however, besides illus trating the eternal vigilance and useful ness of the clipping bureau, has a cer tain value as evidencing the profound ignorance with which a Phoenix para grapher may be gifted and yet hold his job.
