BRAtfED THE STORJB
WHITE DEAR YACHTS RACED IN SPITE OF THE WIND AND RAIN. AKELA'S VICTORY WAS EASY. TARPON REINC; BEATEN BY NEAR LY A FILL, SEVEN MIN UTES. AI'HF.LIA BEAT ALL, THE CATS, While Falcon and "Witch Were Tri uinitlimit in Tlielr Respective Companies. Jupiter Pluvius is, to all outward appearance not in favor of prolong ing the yachting season, for he tried with his might a.nd main yesterday to put out of the question the con test ai White Bear for the Island cup and the other class pennant races. The doughty sailors were not to be routed thus easily, so, after the boats and the land about the pavilion had been thoroughly drenched, they hoist ed sail and raced again. The wind was variable and from the sruth, blowing fresh and strong and then dying away to less than five or six miles an hour. .There were eleven boats entered, three in each class, except the big Bloops-and two of them. Aurelia, the Dean cat, won her race, and the sec ond and last leg on the cup. Akela put it all over Tarpon again, beating her by nearly seven minutes corrected time. Fred Bigelow's Witch snatched the victory from Mojave — changed hands and named Goblin — when it looked like a sure thing for the latter until the run home. In the smaller sloops Van Vleck's Falcon beat out the Helmke boat, Jennie R., and cap tured the class pennant. The second class sloop and special jlti^^pljl } @l%\ \j Cholly — If you love me, why did you not answer me five minutes ago? Maud — Because, dear, I was eating a caramel. races were close, the other two being more decisive, Akela winning by such a generous margin, and both Aurelia's rivals in the cat race dropping out of the struggle. The small sloops started off first at a Run fired at 4:20, owing to the storm which was quite severe for at least an hour. Jennie R. got over first, with Falcon close up, and Siren third. The last nam id met with some mishap to her sail poor, after the gun, and pulled off the course and out of the race. Witch, Goblin and Croppie, three clever little [als, made a pretty flying start, -wi-lV bunched, although the champion soon cut out the running, while Crop pie waited In vain for her heavy wind. Goblin was sailed by Sam Bunn. the natty little one-rater, having come into the possession of the Bunn fam ily. The youngster, with three of his friends, sailed her prettily, and their friends hoped, until the last leg of the race, that she had won. A small mixup at the start some what marred the beginning of the cat race, but Pastime, last over, took the lead, while Aurelia and Alfrida were extricating themselves f/jm a rather close approach to a foul. Both were close hauled, and they came together. Alfrida was to windward, and Aure lia came about, only too soon after make up the distance to the front, and ehe led the other cats to the center buoy, with Alfrida second, Pastime third. Akela and Tarpon started off well together, but Commodore Griggs soor. Bent the champion sloop to the fore, where she staid to the finish, her race uevL>r being in danger. Falcon was the first to round the center buoy, with Jennie P.. a minute behind. Thin came Goblin, the youngsters having taken the lead from the speedy Witch with Capt. Bigelow and two ladies on board. Witch was headed on the way to the Dellwood buoy, with- Croppie third. Alfrida passed the center buoy in the lead of the cats, with Aurelia close up. so close in fact, that the homely black cat pnss.Mi the Herreshof boat to the leeward with 1:0 difficulty on the leg to Dellwood. Pastime was Third gome distance away. Commodore Griggs sailed merrily away in hie Akela, widening the dis tance between himself and Tarpon at every jump. On the run back from Pc-llwood Falcon was in the van with the two one-raters in second place, and Jennie K. third. Goblin was by this time well away from the Witch, and passed the buoy with a good lead, the HeJmke boat following next in the list. When the center buoy was reached, coming back from Dellwood, Aurelia was in the lead, having secured the place of honor among the cats in the run. Tho lead was a comfortable one, and Alfrida was next in order. Then came Akela with Tarpon some three j^riutes behind. Croppie, faltering in tho light winds, was struggling along as well as she could. At this point of the race the wind freshened somewhat, and Akela. over took and passed the cat Alfrida on the rur. up to the home buoy. Hounding the buoy. Goblin pulled away from tho twenty-one-foot sloop Falcon, with (-very sign that "\Viioh was doing all ,11 lier power to cut down the lead of the Bunn one-rater. Jennie R. was also in the bunch, making an interest " Ing quartette. Amelia was putting distance be- tween her stern and Alfrida.and it was clear that the best Pastime could get was third place. Tarpon was sailing manfully after Akela, now well down the course in the direction of Wild wood, and the Lyon special Croppie sailed all by herself. On the run down to Wildwood Alfri da kept well to the south shore, Crop pit following her example. During this leg the wind died down a bit, and the late start and light wind, promised a late finish. Alfrida pulled out of the race on the Wildwood leg, and did not finish. Akela, by this time with a commanding lead over everybody, crossed the line at 6:10:40, Aurelia in next, being about the same distance ahead of her rival cats. Aurelia was registered at 6:14:57. The race between Goblin and Witch was pretty. Goblin had made a pretty bid for the race and Capt. Bigelow thought it would ill-become him to be beaten this sea son, so he put on steam and beat out the youngsters and their Goblin by a scant twenty-five seconds, the time be ing. Witch, 6:15:47, Goblin 6:16:12. Tarpon, a poor second in the big sloop class, kept her distance on the run to Wildwood and back, and cross ed the line at 6:16:59. Falcon had mat ters pretty much her own way, and finished under a strong pull with no competition at 6:20:13. Of those boats which finished, Jennie R. was last crossing at 6:23:51. In spite of the untoward weather quite a number of interested spectators watched from the pavilion and the island, while on the judges' boat were a number of ladies. R. B.

Warden WoUfer and Members ofthe Prison Board Return.. Warden Wolfer returned yesterday from New York, whither* he accom panied Messrs. Temple and Norrish. of the board of prison managers, in the interest of the prison binder twine factory. The constantly increasing de- PREVENTED. mand for prison-made binder twine made it necessary to increase the ca pacity of the factory, and at the last meeting of the board of managers these gentlemen were appointed to go East and purchase additional machin ery. There recent purchase consists of thirty-six double jennies, three finish ers, three spreaders, three drawing frames and a breaker, and when set up and in operation will increase th^ capacity of the factory to 5.000.000 pounds annually. It will be some time before the new machinery arrives, and the factory will not have five million pounds for next season's demand, but the output will not be far from that figure. Some of the machinery w«l be transferred to the old founderv bui ding, which has been rebuilt and v.n soon be ready.

PAUL RISING IN THE ESTI MATION OF PEOPLE IN OTHER CITIES. CHAINLESS WHEEL TO STAY. IT SEEMS TO BE PERSISTENT AS A COMPETITOR OF THE OR. DIARY. BICYCLE ACCIDENT PUZZLE. Companies Do No>t Know What to Do About Bicycle Risks— The Wheel in Politics. While the carnival agitation is on, it may be remarked that the visitors to the city this fall, a host of them, will carry away with them most vividly a recollection of the cycle path system of the city. The hosts who ride awheel now are quick to observe the differ encees in facility of locomotion and the advantage that St. Paul has, in spite of topographical inequalities, not only over the sister city, but other ciiie3 of simlar size, which will result in their carrying away an excellent impression of Minnesota's capital. The Milwaukee Evening Wisconsin points them out as a model to the city fathers of the Cream City. In a recent issue it said: "Th* land owners who have been con sulted have given their consent to the Wauwatosa path being built where the sidewalk would be, were one put down. The committee fears, however, that the path will be used so much by pedes trians that it will materially interfere with the rights of the wheelmen and difficulties may arise as to who has the prior right. If the path is to be six or eight feet wide, the trees along the roadside or an abrupt embankment will be disagreeable obstacles to over come, and the committee is busy mak ing a personal survey of the roadside. W. G. Birkhaeuser has started the ball rolling by indorsing a promise of $250 and subscriptions are guaranteed by the committee to nearly make up the fund necessary for building the path. "The St. Paul wheelmen entertain the same fears relative to the use of cycle paths by pedestrians that the local cy- j cle committee labors under, but expe rience has demonstrated that these fears were groundless. While the cy cle paths in St. Paul are extensively used by pedestrians, there is no com plaint from the wheelmen. In fact the paths have served to raise the wheel men in the estimation of the general public and there is no place in the country where bicycle riders are so well treated and willingly given all that is due them. It is this treatment that commands the first attention of the stranger. "While the St. Paul city fathers were little inclined to help the wheelmen when they first began to build the paths, it was not long before the coun cil began to make concessions, and at the present time, although the St. Paul cycle ordinance is as strict as that of Milwaukee and rigidly enforced, there are many sections of the city where bicycle riding on sidewalks is permis sible. This is in making connections with the cycle paths. In most in stances the plank walk is built very wide and wheelmen are required to pass pedestrians at a low rate of speed. "The St. Paul cycle paths are built of gravel, upon a natural foundation. In most cases the path is six feet in width, but in some places it is eight | feet wide. Way out in the country, i with the exception of White Bear path, | the track varies in width and in some | places narrow r s to two feet. Gravel makes an excellent path, one that can be used in all kinds of weather. "Milwa,ukpe is liable to meet with the same difficulties that confronted the St. Paul wheelmen and with problems that they are still working upon. One of the greatest troubles that the St. Paul people have* Is from cows. The cattle unfailingly take the path in wet weather and the result is that it is badly cut up. The farmers also have a habit of driving on the path when the roads are bad, and all the efforts that have been made to stop the prac tice have failed. The best that the wheelmen could do was to sink posts at the points where the farmers were likely to drive on. An effort was made to secure the right to enclose the path with a wire fence, but it failed. These are two evils that still exist. Tamper ing with the path is a source of little trouble, for if it is done and the of fenders are caught the penalty is se vere. St. Paul boasts of fifty miles of path, more than half of which has been put down this year. Repairmen are employed who go over the paths awheel." • • * A safety detachable toe clip is among the latest novelties. Its inventor as serts that comfort and safety is in sured by its use. It can be placed on any pedal simply by pushing it on the pedal shaft. It is secured to the shaft by strong springs. No tools are re> quired in adjusting it, and the inven tor says it will permanently remain in proper position until released by one's foot. He also says there is no possibil- DETACHABLE TOE CLIP. ity of the foot being held or caught. The part over the pedal is covered with thick rubber. * * * The cha'nless wheel will not run. Mechanical experts are conservative, and the cycle papers cling faithfully to the old models, but no amount of argu ment overcomes the vague sentiment I ! that something is about to happen. It J is understood that every prominent j manufacturer is experimenting with , some sort of chainless device, and the | holders of the best patents are con i &idering a mutual protective associa i tion, which is already referred to as j the chainless trust. It is not unlikely that next year will be somewhat ex perimental, the chainless wheels sell ing at a high price, and their use be ing largely confined to riders who af fect social standing rather than su perior skill. Such defects as the chain less wheel may disclose can then be overcome and a grand boom be made in 1899. * * * Bicycle casualties are bothering the accident insurance companies. The problem is one that has sprung up only within the last two or three years. Under the present contracts there is no clause covering accidents by bi cycles. A man, be he a rider or not, can get his accident insurance accord ing to the kind of occupation that he is engaged in. The risks are divided into various classes, with the prem iums differing according to the hazard attached to the business of the insured. Accidents have increased with the ad vent of the wheel, and there have been hints dropped from time to time about a possible rise in the rate of insur ance because of this new .factor in the business. Directors of the big acci dent companies look; at the weekly losses paid upon these risks and groan, but they are helpless. A rise cannot be made until it can-be done equita bly. The rates on accident insurance are based upon figures accumulated through a long course of experience. Good insurance men say it generally takes from five to six years to get these figures into shape. At the pres ent time these statistics are not com plete enough for intelligent compila tion. The rise will not' come until they are complete. « • * The influence of the bicycle in pol itics is on the increase. .-One of the candidates for mayor in a Western city announces in the 'newspapers that the wheelmen and wheelwomen deserve consideration from city' authorities, and their Interests should be looked after just as are the interests of other taxpayers. Wheelmen as a rule are taxpayers and property owners. The city builds good streets or streets that are fair for the convenience and ac commodation of wagons and carriages and for traffic vehicles. The tremen dous increase in the number of bi cycles used for business purposes nat urally entitles the users of these" bi cycles to the comfort and conveniences of streets suited to them. Wheelmen also deserve consideration from street sprinklers. There is no sense in pour ing gallons and gallons of water on the street surface, turning this surface into mud and slime, when sprinkling will answer the purpose just as w-ell. It is a well known fact that the wet street or sloppy street is not only dir ty, but it is dangerous for rubber tired vehicles. There have been numerous accidents caused entirely by sloppy streets. A dry path, say, six feet wide, through the center or on each side of the street would have saved those accidents. Don't Soak With Oil. Inexperienced riders who think their wheels should be oiled every day are about equaled in numbers by those who go to the other ex treme and only lubricate once a month or so. Many persons liberally soak the bearings with oil before starting out on a short run, with the idea in view of making the machine run easily. This Is something of a mistake. The ball bearings of a bicycle are unlike the journal bearings of a car wheel, a wagon wheel or the shafts in a manufacturing place. The Journal bearings are. fiat,.' the points of contact virtually covers the- whole bearing and as a result the friction ig great. To pre vent friction an immense amount of oil is required, and from this the. general run of bicycle riders get the impression that It is necessary to keep the ball bearings deluged with oil in order to keep .them going easily. This is a mistake. Tb.erc is a wide difference between the two styles of bearings and where balls are used the points of contact are limited. Frequently a drop of oil will answer the purpose better j than if the entire bearings were soaked with grease. Where the bearings are soaked in oil tne wheel may revolve easily- for a while. Only for a while, however. Dust and dirt will accumulate, the oil will work out of the cups and the result is a mass of grit, which prevents the free working of the balls ard renders the state of affairs hs bad as if no oil at all had been placed in the cup It is safe to say that had less oil been used there would be less need of taking a wheel to tne repair shop so often to have the bear ings cleaned of grit and other foreign sub stances. There has been more than one instance w-here the suit of the ridfir was damaged through this cause. The wheel may have been perfectly clean at the start, only liberal ly oiled. As the bicycle covered the ground the oil oozed from the bearings and dripped out, only to be wiped by the suit of the rider and make an ugly stain that could not be removed. Half the time th S rider imagines the wheel does not run smoothly it is not caused by a. lack of oil in the bearings but from other causes. Nine times out of ten tne chain ;Js. the cause. I£_ more attention were paid to the ehaiu instead' of the bearings the pleasure of Cycle riding would be in creased wonderfully ■ 1" fljf f * Tlu. t hainle^ &**£& "\Viun. will i,« tfifc^^ff*^ of ■•■ p^rtHess wheels on th* supply. jSTarT^t? 1 " w ftS asked of a dealer. .."■ "Well, it will create A 'demand for new parts, which will increase as thfe . demand •for certain parts now in use diminish^ If the chainless wheel comes to stay next year and the price is pot beyond reach " the sprocket-wheel men, the chainiuakers and the I manufacturers of the little , parts which go I to make up the driving system on a bicy- I cle may have to enter new fields.

As this is the great season of touring the advice of experienced riders will be of use to the inexperienced who contemplate a tour The veteran says do not lay down any fixed and iron-clad rule about the distance' to go each day. Having selected a! route, make the distance to be traveled daily so elastic that you can stop and lay off whenever the oc castion demands it. Map out the land in ad vance with careful regard to the roads be cause a tour planned over poor roads can never be compensated by grandure of scenery faelect only such roads as are designated good or fair by the best road maps. Short dis tances of from 25 to 35 miles are to be com mended at first. Thirty-five miles a day is a good rate for a new rider, 35 to 50 miles for a seasoned tourist. Dates of Georgian Ktiy Trip.

NEW YORK, Sept. 4.— Golf is to be more poular than ever this fall. The autumn is the ideal time of year for golfers, and society will devote espe cial attention to the fascinating sport. Incidentally it may be remarked that the golf hero is rapidly coming to the front, and his niche in the temple of fame has become the shrine of so ciety's devotion. The popular ignorance respecting the history of golf in America is la mentable, so, therefore, the following facts should prove of great interest. Like the Biblical grain of mustard seed, so has been the growth of the "royal and ancient game of golf" in the United States. Outside of cycling there has been nothing to compare with it, and like cycling its spell has enthralled all kinds and conditions of men and women, young and old, rich and poor, athletic and of sedentary tastes. Golf has leveled all. It is the old tale on the links how on Dec. 22, 1894, five men, after dinner at the Calumet club in this city, put their heads together and formed the United States Golf association, with a mem bership of five clubs— the Shinnecock Hills Golf club, the St. Andrew's Golf club, of Yonkers; the Country club, of Brookline; the Newport Golf club, and the Chicago Golf club. On that day was sown the grain of mustard a^prl. Today there are enrolled in the United States Golf association eighty-nine clubs, seventeen of which are associate and seventy-two of which are allied members. New York leads the van with thirty-one clubs, Massachusetts comes next with fifteen, and New Jer sey is hard on her heels with fourteen. Pennsylvania has nine; Connecticut, four; Illinois, five; "Little Rhody," three; Ohio, two, and several of the Western states one apiece. The seven teen associate clubs which control the workings of the United States Golf association are; The Chicago Golf club, the Country club, of Brookline, Mass.; Newport Golf club, St. Andrew's Golf club, of Yonkers, N. V. ; Shinne cock Hills Golf club, Southampton, L. 1.; Essex County club, Manchester, Mass.; Philadelphia Country club; Lakewood Golf club; Morris County Golf club, Morristown, N. J.; Meadow brook club, Hempstead, L. I.; Tuxedo Golf club. Tuxedo Park, N. V.; Myopia Hunt club, Hamilton, Mass.; Wash ington Golf club; Philadelphia Cricket club; Ardsley club, Irvington-on-Hud son; Onwentsia club, Lake Forest, 111.; Knollwood Country club, Elmsford, Westchester county, N. Y. But, in considering the proportions that golf has attained, it is to be re membered that hardly ten per cent of golf clubs at present flourishing in the United States are under the control of the U. S. G. A., though the influence of that body is in certain respects par amount. The association is represent ed in the West only by Illinois and Colorado. Yet the game flourishes near every city on the Pacific coast and in every section boardering on the eastern slopes of the Rockies. Pri vate links are fast cumTng to be con sidered an indispensible accessory to the grounds of every fashionable house along the Pacific slope and the wild and woolly West, generally speaking, has fallen a willing victim to the blandishments of . v the game that charms the effete East. Just now the tendency in the growth of the game is not towards the form ing of new clubs, but towards improve- Their intentions are honest as they wheel along, But cupid calls a halt and a farmer's boy attendr to the cyclometer. ment and enlargement of the old clubs. Only the other day the St. Andrew's club relinqished its nine hole course at Yonkers, almost histor ic grounds in the eyes of the Amer ican golfer, for a new eighteen hole course at Mount Hope. The million aire golfers, who make up the Ards ley club, following suit, have enlarged their links and have now an eighteen hole course which, like the Mount Hope one, is about 6,000 yards long. Both the St. Andrew's club and the Ardsley club are out after the champ ionship of 1898. The open tournaments scheduled for the Metropolitan Golf associa tion, which covers a radius of sixty miles around New York, are with one or two events outside the radius, as follows: Sept. 9, 10, 11— Westbrook Golf club.

On the same date as Saratoga's tournament takes place the women's tournment for the championship of the United States — a clash in dates that will militate sadly against the success of the games on the links at the Spa. This is to be regretted as the Saratoga Golf club, with its com modious club rooms and fine links, is eminently well fitted to conduct as successful an event as is to be found on th*} golfing calendar. But then, everything must yield to the ladies. This year the women's championship will be played on the links of the Es sex County club, Manchesier-by-the sea, Mass. Not a few of the promis ing candidates for the coveted honor will come from the home club as, with the Shinnecock Hills and Morris County clubs, it ranks among the first in the number and prominence of its women players. Miss N. C. Sargent, who was second in the championship of 1895, is undoubtedly the best of the Essex golfers and her record this sea son makes it evident that she is in fine trim for the final struggle. Miss Beatrix Hoyt, the present champion, has been spending the sum mer at Shinneoock Hills, where her long list of victories in the weekly handicaps proves her in 'great form. A short time ago she covered the dif ficult Shinnecock course in 85, which means that if her title is to be wrested from her, some extraordinary good golf must be played. Another fine play er is Mrs. Arthur Turnure, the runner up last year to Miss Hoyt. It is pos sible, too, that Mrs. Hobart Chatfield- Tayior will come on from Chicago to uphold the honor of the Onwentsia club in the tourney. The entry list, how ever, has not yet been made public. Three years ago, when the first wom en's championship was held at the Mc-adowbrook links, there were but a dozen competitors; this year there will, it is said, be all of fifty, while con testants will come from such com paratively distant points as Baltimore, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia and Albany. The amateur and open champion ship of the United States, held under tho special rules of the United States Golf association and for prizes given by that body, begins on the links of the Onwentsia Golf club, Lake Forrest, Chicago, 111., Sept. 14. The present holder is an Onwentsian man, H. J. Whigham, a Scotchman by birth. The HOW CERTAIN C YCXISTS MAKE CENTIRY RITXS. 11 New Yorkers who will doubtless take part in the championship tournament l are: James A. Tyng, Morris County Golf club; Foxhall Keene, Rockaway Hunt, H. P. Toler, Baltusrol Golf club; S. D. Bowers, Otsego Golf club; L. B. Bayard Jr., the intercollegiate cham pion, Baltusrol Golf club; W. J. Travis, Oakland Golf club; John Reid Jr., New Haven Golf club; Roderick Terry, Ardsley club; W. G. Stewart— the great English player— Seabright Golf club; Findlay Douglas, Fairfield Golf club; W. H. Sands, Westchester Country club; H. M. Harriman, Knollwood Country club. -^»- Does Advertising Pnyf It is generally admitted that the modern merchant must advertise. If one were to ask the average reader of the Globe to name the principal re tail establishments of St. Paul, who doubts but that he would immediately call off the names of our large adver tisers, and yet perhaps we ought not to use the word large, but frequent — no, "constant" is better still. Probably the greatest virtue resident in the policy of advertising lies in the fact that the steady, regular advertiser is in continuous touch with the public^ that the public is as eager to receive his advertising news as he to impart it. This explains why it is a matter of only a few hours, and sometimes only a few minutes after the appear ance of a meritorious advertisement by a regular advertiser, bofore he gets his response in the way of eager and ap preciative purchasers. The chance, occasional advertiser 13 constantly at a disadvantage in that he but just gets a grip on the public when his heart fails him, or he gets scared at his advertising bill, and he stops his ad. The result is that he has to be constantly building anew. It's like putting in a new foundation every month, whereas the regular, persistent advertiser uses the same foundation constantly. He demolishes his super structure every day, perhaps, but tho i foundation is there constantly, and needs no rebuilding. The New England Furniture & Car pet Company is recognized as a per sistent, continuous advertiser. Mr. Harris, president of the company, who writes all its advertisements, says that the papers were hardly on the streets announcing its discontinuance of business sale before customers were in the store seeking the bargains adver tised; and, although the sale has been running some three weeks, the inter est has been sustained, through two ; causes. One, because the New England has in the most frank and colloquial , fashion explained the progress and , prospects of the sale in each day's edition of the Globe since the sale commenced; while the public, the alert , housekeepers of St. Paul, have been , in a most receptive mood, and have been as eager to follow the develop ments of the sale as the New England has been frank in announcing them. The lease of the beautiful building which the New England has occupied for the last five years is for sale, ajid j it would certainly seem as if some ! bright, alert business man would be wise enough to purchase it. It is certainly one of the, best opportunities • for an enterprising merchant that we know of. The management of the New England is exceedingly anxious to close the store by Sept. 15, and hopes to dis pose of its lease before that date; but, | whether it does or not, Sept. 15 will probably see the end of the New Eng land's direct connection with the housekeepers of St. Paul.
