On that afternoon they

Fast Going in the Cycle Races at Rock
The Charlotte cyclists who went
to Rock Hill Tuesday report close
and exciting races, witnessed by
about 1,200 people. The track is
very fine and as fast and safe as any

The event of the day proved to be
the 5 mile amateur handicap won
by Patrick, of Columbia, from 260
yards; time 12:10; time for scratch
men, Schade, Halstead ani Clark,
12:112 5. This is claimed to be
a world's record for five mile handi
cap race, the fastest time heretofore
being 12:14. The winner, Patricjk,
was disqualified for being paced by
Oliver, after Oliver had quit the
race. This gave the race to Schade,
with Halstead second,

The professionals did some
ridinff and fully redeemed
selves for bad impressions made on

There were eight events, honors

very popular with Charlotte cyclists.

NEW TARRIFF BILL-
Democrats Will Oppose the Increased
Tax on Tea, Beer and Tobacco. Al-
drich to Open the Debate Tomorrow.
By Telegraph to the News.
Washington, May 24. The Re
publican members of the Senate
finance committee held an informal
caucus today. They are preparing
for the opening of the tariff debate
Senator Aldrich will make the
opening speech. He will contend
that the revenue features of the bill
are absolutely necessary, and that
the proposed tax on tea, beer and
tobacco must be imposed if the bill
is to bring in the revenue needed to
pay the expenses of the government.
The Republicans are worried over
the discovery that the bill will not
produce as much revenue as was
thought. Tariff experts say, with
the changes made in the bill by the
Senate, -it will fall short $20,000,000
of raising the necessary sum.
Under the leadership of Senators
Gorman and Vest, Democrats will
oppose the tax on tea, tobacco and

events immediately preceding the
war have proved to the contrary.
