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is superseded by the soft whirr, whirr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

observers assert that the eflect of pure
air and improved digestion is already
plainly apparent In more geVerous and

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

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-

The Misses Bike, daughters of the ex
senntor from Ohio, were great wheel

daughters. Phil Sheridan's twins, Dl.
Talmage's daughter, and in short about
all the younger women of Washington.

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.
Her majesty told her ministers the other
day that she was r..0 longer a child, ar.d
tha.t the stamps ought to be altered,
forthwith.

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. JAMES. H. GRIFFES.
Innovation in Hosiery
Society women who pretend to keep up
with fads are now discarding all their
long stockings, however dainty and
silken they may be. Half hose have
been accepted as their correct substi
tute. The summer girl's stockings will
henceforth be of the same length and
style as her brother's. They come direct
from Paris and are of an exquisite qual
ity of silk, not yet having been made in
any cheaper material? They are of plain
colors, with clocks Of contrasting shades
and with a tiny plalded band about the
top, and are especially pretty when
worn with slippers, but they are equally
appropriate for outdoor wear.—Chicago
Chronicle.
Half Price
Beggar—Ain't ye got a dime for a
poor blind man?
Old Gentleman—Why, you are only
blind in one eye.
Beggar—All right; make it a nickel.—

<d OUR GREAT INTRODUCTORY OFFER i
Jm, To secure widespread and favorable publicity for THE NEW STANDARD AMERICAN ENCYCLOPEDIA, we have
£J decided to place a few introductory sets in each community throughout the country for comparison with all other reference works as to plan, 9
scope, lateness of treatment and general practical and educational value. We feel that every set will create a demand for others. While
tbe distribution will be general in extent, it will last for a limited time only, after which our regular subscription sale will begin, at prices J/U
\£ ranging irom $48 to $72 a set. according to style of binding. Now. however, to ouickly and thoroughly introduce the work, as above stated, V
we make the prtce merely nominal ("about the cost of paper and printing), the distribution being limited to a vsry saw wastes, reserv-
Hf ing the privilege of withdrawing the offer at any time when we consider a sufficient number of these introductory sets, at the special price,
have been distributed.

QW day. If you prefer the half-Morocco binding, the monthly payment will he ta.oo, and for full sheep, $2.50 mw

XT I —day* and money will bo promptly refunded. Owing to the nominal price at which these introductory xT
icts arc supplied, transportation charges must be paid by the purchaser ; but our entire confidence that the volumes will be gladly received
