Mike Farraghcr has written a letter to Youngstown, in which ..he «?««*» his willingness to meet Bueiv -let zer, of Columbus. He states, however, that he was not properly treated by the officials of the Metropolitan Ath letic Club, and that he will not box here. The fact of the matter is that Farragher received 50 per cent of the gross receipts in one match and 60 per cent in another. He has no cause for complaint against the club. While training for one of his battles Stetzer assisted him and was one of his seconds in the contest. For his services “Buck” received the munificent sum of $3. Farragher probably refers to his bout with Paddy Smith, which was stopped by the Sheriff. At that limp the purse was equally divided, and Farragher got his share. William Sherry, Stetzler’s manager, states that “Buck” is willing to meet Farragher anywhere, and as an earnest of his good intentions he has deposited with the Register a certified check for $50 to bind a match for $250 a side, men to weigh in at 135 pounds, and winner to take entire purse and re ceipts. Stetzlers friends will not send ; their money to Youngstown, as Farra gher demands, as they say they can see no necessity for it. They mean busi ness. and will meet Farragher or his representatives any evening this week in the Register office. Events That Are of Interest to De votees of the Wheel. j A Movement to Tax Owners of Eicycles, the Money to Go To ward Repairing the Streets New St ito Law —Gossip About the Big Meet in Philadelphia This Fall-General Notes Concerning Bicycles and Their Riders, or __ Wheelmen attending the coming meet in Philadelphia will have an opportun ity of visiting (under the chaperonage of the Tour's and Runs Committee), many places of historical interest in the country round-about Philadelphia, es pecially those made famous by reason of their having been the scenes of battle and privation during the darkest hours of the American Revolution. Among the places to which various subcommit tees of the Tours and Runs Committee will bud parties of visitors may be men tioned Valley Forge, where the Con tinental army encamped during the ter rible winter 1777-78, a most charming 45-mile ride over the famous Lancaster pike. In connection with this run a visit may be paid to the Paoli monument, which marks the sihu where, on the night of September 28, 1777, a portion | of ‘ Mad Anthony" Wayne’s trops be trayed by local tories, were mercilessly slaughtered by a much larger detach ment of British troops. On the return from Paoli, the resting place of “Mad Anthony,” at St. David’s will be pasced. Fort Washington, a dozen miles or so : out the Bethlehem pike, will also be vis I ited with an examination en route of I the pretty suburb of Germantown. I where was fought the Revolutionary I battle of that name: the return to he j made via the famous \\ issahiekon i drive. Other places of interest to the 1 student of Revolutionary lore will be the Cradle of Liberty." “Independence Hall,” Benedict Arnold's mansion in Fairmount Park, the Betsey Ross house, on Arch street, where the first Ameri can flag was put together by the deft hands of the immortal Betsey herself. Of course, this is but a very incomplete outline of some of the runs that will he taken. When the Tours and Runs Committee settles down to work the details of many others of equal interest will be noted. Next August’s meet is having a very beneficial effect on the membership list of the Pennsylvania division, last week's 1 additions totaling 710—the largest for a single wee k in the history of the divis ion. and within nine of the combined ad ditions for tbe week of the States of New York Massachusetts. New Jersey and Ohio. By August 1. Pennsylvania's league membership will be within sight : of the 20.000 mark. Preparations for the entertainment of lady, visitors to the meet are already under way. it being the intention of the Executive Committee to make the stay of the ladies a most pleasant one. To this end. the Ladies’ Auxiliary Commit tee spoken of in a previous buletin. is being formed. In this, as in other American cities, the gentler sex is very enthusiastic over the sport, and the amount of available timber for the make-up of a committee composed of representative lady riders is absolutely bewildering to the Executive Commit tee. The committee will he a large one. and its personnel will ho announced as soon as the selections have been made. The new State law. which was framed in accordance with suggestions by offi cials of the L. A. W.. will go into effect on the 2fith inst. The city bicycle or dinance conflicts with the State law in a number of particulars, and it will he either annulled, or repealed and a new ordinance enacted. A movement is on foot to insert a provision in the new or amended ordinance, taxing own ers of wheels 50 cents per year. The idea is to use all the money raised by this method in improving the streets and roads. There will probably be op position to such a law. but the pro vision that the money is to be expended in improving the streets is a good one There are about 1.500 wheels in this city, and the annual revenue would reach about $750. This would not make any extensive improvements, but would be n step in the right direction. The L. A. W membership in this State ip constantly increasing. Chief Consul C. H. Geiger states that there were a number of renewals, and appli cations during the past week. The Y. M. C. A. Cyclers will prob ably have a larger membership than any club in Wheeling. The boys are manifesting considerable enthusiasm. There will be excursions every Thurs day night throughout the summer. A run to Triadelphia was scheduled for last Thursdav. but on account of unfa vorable weather very few responded. Preparations are being made for a run over the same route next Thursday night, leaving the Y. M. C. A. build ing at seven o’clock. The club will giye several road races during the summer, and Prof. State has organized a racing team. The London “Saturday Review’’ frankly admits that :n the manufacture of cycles the English have been dis tanced by Americans. In this country in 1885 there were six manufacturers of bicycles, with an annual output of eleven thousand machines. Now there are nine hundred makers, with a pro duct of a round million. Last year fifteen thousand found their way into ; competition with British machines on i tehir own grounds and this year the number is likely to be doubled. The only consolation the English find in this is that we import from them a small amount of tubing for their construction. A kinetoscope company is trying to make arangements with Capt. Norton, the owner of the Fountain Ferry track, to secure pictures of a race meet to be | held there at some time during the sum mer. The track is about the right size. The Company is the one that took the pictures of the Corbett - Fitzsimmons fight. Bald has also received a proposition to ; ride an exhibition mile before the kine- : toscope and will do so whenever ar rangements can lie made. No track has hen specified for him.—Cycling Gazette. Walter Brodie, Harry Hastings, anil Charlie Davis, of the Pittsburg base ball club, are enthusiastic cyclers. 'The fast riders among the Wheeling i devotees, including the Stamp Y. M. C'. A., and Riheldaffor teams, are interest ed just now in the meet of tho Babel 1 Cycling Club, of Marietta, which will be held on Deeoratlou Day. A number of entry blanks will be tilled out and sent from this city. The priz s aggre gate $100 in value, and the programme of races follows: One mile, novice; one half-mile, open; one mile, open: Hub championship, two mile lap: half-mile, flying; five mile, handicap. Ml the local riders will probably he interested in the handicap, which promises to he the host race cf the day. Next Monday is the date set for the opening of the Bicycle Cleaning Co. s Store at No. Id Tenth street. This company intends renting high grade wheels. ’97 models, cleaning bicycles, handling bicycle sundries, do light re pairing and insure bicycles against theft. Wheeling bicyclists have needed such an institute n for some time. Happenings of the Week in the Fields of Athletic Struggles The Work of the Wheeling Ball Club During the Week—A Com parison with Other Interstate Clubs-The Season 'Ihus Far in tho M jor Organization — The Week Among tho Bowlers, the Boxers, and the Cyclers. Wlun Wh<• liner was so appal ntly < • classed in hitting in the op*ning series* • of games with Mai.siield, the chronic croakers proclaimed the fact that the home club was lamentably w- ak. At that time it was snag- t• • l that opinions be reserved for a week or two. Th' local players won four of the next six gam's, and the fault-finding dement was si ll need. Now they are ready to break out again, like an epld» mic of disease only par tially eradicated. It is impossible to sat is fy . v. iybody, and thi- * .ass of p< is f.ot proportionately strong* r In Wheel in? tlian in any other city represented on the diamond by a professional club. Per haps it's exlstance is. nfbr all, not a hindrance but an aid. It would not do to ■ ' knock* is" serve a purpose so long ns th* y koop without reasonable bounds, it is manifestly unfair to give an opinion re garding the relative strength of the Inter state turns until each team has met all the others. Wheeling has crossed bats with Mansfield. Toledo. Fort Wayne, and Youngstown, and has held its own. This Is all a reasonable “fan" has a right to expect, in view* of he luet that most of the games thus far have been played abroad. Ferhaps the most -• rions t -t of strength will come when Win ding m* * ts the New Castle* team. Thr. garm s will 1" play* 1 in N< w Castl* nd thre* It Win • ling, and local patrons nd expect th* home *-.u!> to win half of them. Winding hatted hard enough to win ordinary games In tin* series with Mansfield. but Mansfield lilt the ball even harder. In the light of sub sequesnt events it ic mor- reasonable to ascribe the heavy hitting of Mansfield to weakness, or ‘ 'off days." of tin* local twirlers. than to any such phenomenal hitting pow.rs as the fusilad. <>f base hits would semi to indicate that the Mar.sfie’d aggregation possess* s. There Is on*1 point i wliich is not in dispute—that no club in , (he league has fielded bitter than M incl ine. Wliile it is true that hard hitting wins games, it is ••qually trim that clean. *harp fielding cuts ofT many hits. No club which Wlmclirir has yd met has demon strate*! its sup- riorliy ov* r th- lo-al Hub. j | nil I'olnts of tlie game * or ider* *1. and no t*am has a license to win a majority of games from Winding. New Castle has been putting up a pennant winning article ( of base* ball, and for that reason the j games this week will be watched with more than ordinary interest. The Interstate magnat. s nctd wise ly, if, at their meeting last Mon day, they decided to strengthen . the weaker rlubs. The strength ening process miK not t tk- place, how ever, at the expense of tin vrong Hub*, i However, this is not likely to occur, and for the same r< a son tie idea of strength- j ening is impracticable.
