So many applications for space have

pleased over tho maner In which Presi

meet, and after the close of the entries
sent requests to have their entry with
drawn. One decided that he was not in
the best of condition. His entry was
withdrawn. The next thing he did was
to enter for a tournament In another
state. The second man wrote that he
could nut ride and would like his entry
withdrawn. He entered for a meet In
another state, where he posed as
scratch man against a second-class
field and had a mortgage on all the first
prizes. These are only two ways of
getting around the rule and only two
instances where It was done But there
Tho h. A. TV. issued sanctions for
more than 200 race meets on July 4th,
and It has been estimated that 12.000
contestants figured In the meetings,
which were watched by probably SOO.

estimated that there were 600 races for
amateurs and 1,400 for professionals.
Averaging the prizes at $26 for first, $10
for second, and $5 for third in the ama
teur races, and $30 cash for first, $13 for
second, and $3 for third. In the profes
sional events, it will be seen that the
amateurs carried off about $24,000, and
that the "pros" won about $20,OCO.
Writes A. O. Batehelder In the New
York Journal: "It Is not generally
known that Alexander MacDonnell, the
Rochester rider, who holds so many of
the unpaced road records, and who has
just sailed for Australia, made exten
sive use of the kola nut while negotiat
ing fast times on public highways. Not
a few of the racing men have experi
mented with kola preparations, and
while the result has been temporarily
satisfactory, the ultimate effect has been
to make the rider become stale and un
able to ride at a high rate of speed for
any length of time. Palpitation of the
heart is an inevitable symptom of the
workings of the drug, which Is simply a
nerve fooler for a time only abolishing
the sense of weariness and fatigue. Not
only have racing men been addicted to
the kola habit, but the general run of
cyclers are also falling under its in
fluence, and any amount of damage is
being done by the extensive ttse of this
deceptive nut, which exacts n penalty
from its victim in the long run. The
medical profession' has reposed great
confidence in this nut. but that it is mis
placed is becoming more evident every
Johnson's claim to the wirld's pro-
puled t7 a number of riders In thjs
country, to say nothing of those In But
rope, Sinco arriving in Europe John
son has repeatedly been spoken of as
the American professional champion,
while Bald, Cooper, Gardiner and
others don't understand Just how
Johnnie Is entitled to so much glory.
Tom Eck. however. Is not a manager
who lets anything escape him for want
of a "claim."
London Truth prints the following
advertisements. The first Is tor a chap
eron, and reads 9 "Wanted by a dowa
ger too aged to ride a cycle (84), an ex
perienced lady cyclist accustomed to the
very best society. Must be able to ride
twenty miles an hour, so as to keep
In sight youngest daughter, who Is agile
and injudicious. Apply to A. B. C, 62
Belgrave Square." In the other a chap
eron wants a place and she says: "A
lady, highly connected, is prepared to
chaperon (on a cycle) the ambitious
daughters of a millionaire. Is an ex
pert In all paces (cycling). Can be
trusted to keep alongside of the swift
est detrimental, and to lag discreetly 111
the rear of an eligible younger son."
Raymond Macdonald, one of Eck's
racing contingent In Europe, returned
to the United States unexpectedly. He
complains that he was not given an
equal show with the other members of
the team. Eck and Johnson had treut
cd him well, he Bald, but he had not
only to fight all the foreign racing men,
but also buck against the tricks of An
ton Johnson and Welnlg, who were Im
bued through and through with the "one
star only" Idea. Macdonald says: "I
am still under contract with Eck, but
will not say just what I may be able to
do very shortly. I think my breaking
the record for half a kilometer at the
Seine track was one of the easiest tasks
I ever had. It Is apparently very hard
for Johnson to get in shape. He Is not
yet riding In his true form. Murphy,
Wheeler and Klser have not yet done
much riding, though, of course, they are
improving. The showing they made is
no criterion, as they have not yet met
the best men over there. The best man
there Is Jacquelln. If he could only ue
velop staying powers he would be In
vincible, as no matter how close he is
watched, he can Jump any competitod
and get away at least five yards ahead
in forty, but he dies away at the tape."
When Charles T. Earl, the erstwhile
Class B man, at Manhattan Beach Sat
urday went a mile behind tho quad in
1.E6 4-5, he negotiated the two-thirds in
1.15 3-5, which Is a world's record. Tho
first third was covered In thirty-six
seconds, and was announced, but for
some reason the officials did not think
the smashing of a world's record worthy
of note. The former record for the dis
tance was 1.16, made by Johnny John
son on November 2, 1893.
NEW SILVER CERTIFICATES.
Something Artistic in Design to
Please the 10 to I Hustlers.
Washington, July 14. The first de
livery of silver certificates of the new
design, approved by the secretary of the
treasury, for the issue of 1896, was made
today by the bureau of engruving and
printing to the treasurer of the United
States. The denomination delivered
was the one dollar. It is a beautiful
ohange from the old conventional bank
note design. The design for the face of
this certificates is by Will H. Low, who
has taken for his subject, "Hstoiy In

mule and at her side Is a youth to whom
she is outllnlng'thehlstory of the nation.
A birdaeye view of the city of Washing

the Potomac river, the Washington
monument, the capltol and the new con
gressional library building distinctly, is
In tho back ground. On the right hand
of this design Is an open book contain
ing the first clause of the consitutlon.
Around the boarder are engraved the
names of many of the great men who
have figured conspicuously In the his
tory of the nation, Including statesmen,
warriors, scientists, inventors and au
thors. The back of the note contains
the portraits of President and Mrs.
Washington, surrounded by beautiful
scroll and lathe work. This note was
submitted to many of the leading bank
ers In New York and to others in all
parts of the country and has been uni
versally pronounced one of the most
beautiful executed notes ever issued by
the government, besides affording an
account of the fine and elaborately en
graved work t"he greatest security pos
sible against counterfeits.
ILLINOIS GOLD BUGS.
Democratic Organization of the Stnte
Has He-opened Headquarters.
Chicago, July 14. The gold Democratic
organization of Illinois will reopen head
quarters tomorrow In the Palmer House
and the executive committee does not
doubt that there will be enough favorably
responses to the manifesto Issued last
night to guarantee a new national com
mittee. Chairman Robins admitted that
he had received no additional telegrams
today from prominent Democrats offer
ing to support the third ticket proposition,
but he assurances he had received led him
to expect delegations from eastern and
southern states even If the party machin
ery of the states were opposed to the pThn
on the supposition that two Democratic
tickets would mean the election of Mc
Klnley. It is generally believed at slate Repub
lican headquartoers here that the national
committee at Its meeting In Cleveland
this wek will locate branch headquarters
in Chicago and place National Clmmlttee
man Jamleson In charge of the western
campaign. This would be taken as a rec
ommendation of the claims that Mills Is
the royal battle man in the campaign.

i'.'EVER KNEW ONE,
''I never knew a Democrat who was
not betten than his party, and, f never
knew a RepubllnRH who waa aa goed as
his party. There are many Democrats
who ore able JuristB, lawyers, mer
chants nnd professional men but t'loy
lack cohesive qualities. This, was
shown In their freu trade dsctrinu
which developed a bill that gave pw
tectlon to collars nnd ruffs, Iron, steel,
pottery and other things which had
sufficient 'pulp to got them protected
for the sake of certain Individual In
terests and certain communities. The
Democratic political religion is much
like the religious religion of the Ne
braska farmer who In asking the Al
mighty to exterminate the grasshoppers
prayed that If tho Almighty didn't
want to kill the Insects He created. He
might guide them to some state other
"England's chancellor of the exchec
quer recently said that England's
greatest period of prosperity hnd been
during 1S94 and 1S95. Those were the
two years when the delightful benefits
of Democratic legislation were felt and
when the United States were groaning
under Borne of the most poverty-stricken
times In Its history. A different state
of affairs prevailed from 1873 to 1891,
when the country enjoyed the protec
tion afforded by a proper tariff and by
a gold standard of currency.
"The Democratic nominee In his Chi
cago speech said 'If you destroy the
cities, you lenve us our farms; if you
destroy the farms, grass will grow in
the city streets. Mr. Bryan mljrht also
have stated that where there are no
cities the workintrmen are savages.
That is not a Popullstlc theory that Is
fact. It was true when the word 'city'
was born of the Latin word 'drills' or
'civilization,' and It is no less a fact

"After free trade has kindled almost
a hatred among our people they pro
pose a cure, a curse greater than we al
reudy have and which threatens us as
surely as If we stood on the brink of a
"It Is revolution that they are advo
cating. Ideas advanced by such men
as Altgeld, Tillmun, etcetera, bodes no
good for you or for me. William Mc-,
Klnley stands for civil service and not
for a mob rule created to capture all the
offices; for the constitution; for the su
preme court, which the Democratic
theorists would destroy; for liberty; lor
law, and for order. He is against the
will of that accursed horde who want to
go Into bankruptcy and pay their debts
with 53-cent dollars.
"Those are his principals; those are
the principals of the Republican party.
Personnally, there is none more gentle,
truer or loving than William McKln
ley." Mr. Chance made a very polntel ref
erence to William Connell's candidacy
for the congressional nomination. He
"There is a worthy man I would like
to have you support for congress. I
hesitate to speak his name for tear of
being accused of being personal. But
I guess you know who I mean.'
The speaker concluded with a refer
ence to the sacredness of the ballot and
of the Importance the ballot had played
In the weal and woe of nations.
CALLS FOR COLBORN.
Chairman Dale then announced that
owing to the lateness of the Iwur It
waa then 10:40 o'clock the assemblage
would probably not like to hear ny
more addresses. The remark was met
by loud calls for "Colborn" and "Jack,"
which prompted the chairman to Intro
duce the desired Individual. Mr. Col
born occupied but a few moments in
giving one of those ringing, patriotic
addresses which hare made for him a
reputation more than local nnd which
put the listeners on proper edge for
glring heartily the three cheers pro
posed by District Attorney Jones.
That concluded the opening rally of
Scranton Republicans In the present

TO-DAY'S MAUD MULLER.
Maud Mullar, on a Summer day. ;
Mounted her wheel and rodo away.
Beneath her blue cap glowed a wealth
Of lurge red freckles and first-rate haslth.
Singing, she rode, and her merry glee
Frightened the sparrow from ihls tree,
But when she was several miles from
Upon the hill-slope, coasting down,
The sweet song died, mnid a vagnc unrest
And a sort of terror filled her breast
A fear that she hardly dared to own,
For what if her wheel should strike a
stonel , .. ,
The Judge scorched swiftly down the
just then she heard his tire explode!
; t '
He carried his wheel into the shade
Of the apple trees, to await the maid. '
And he asked her 1? she would kindly loan
Her pump to him, aa he'd lost his own.
She left her wheel with a sprightly jump,
And In less than a Jiffy produced her
And who blushed as she gave It, looking
At her feet, onoo hid by a trailing gown.
Then said the Judge, as be pumped away,
" "Tli very fine weather we're having to
day." He spoke of the grass and flowers and
Of twenty-mile runs and centuries;
And Maud forgot that no trailing gown
Was over her bloomers hanging down.
But the tire was fixed, alack-a-day!
Tho Judge remounted and rode away.
Maud Muller looked and sighed, "Ah met
That I the Judge's bride might bet ,
My father should have a brand-new wheel
Of the costliest make and the finest steel.
"And I'd give one to ma of the same de
sign. So that she'd ceaso to borrow mine."
The Judge looked back, as he climbed the
And saw Maud Muller standing still.
"A prettier face and a form more fair
I've seldom gazed at, I declare!
"Would she she were mine, and I today
Opubl ninkti her put tltoesl blotxtters
But he thought of his staters, proud and
And shuddered to think how they would
If he should, one of these afternoons.
Come home with a bride In pantaloons!
Ho married a wife of richest dower,
Who had never succumbed to the bloom
Yet, oft while watching the smoke wreaths
He thought of that freckled bloomer girl;
Of tho way she stood there, plgeonftoed,
Wihllo he was pumping beside the road.
She married a man who clerked In a store,
And many children played round her door.
And then nor bloomers brought her Joyl
She cut them down for her oldest boy.
But still of the Judge she often thdTight,
And sighed o'er the loss that her bloomers
Or wondering if wearing them was a cln,
And then confessed: "It might have
Alas for tho Judge! Alas for the mn Id!
Dreams were their only stock in trade.
Kor of all wise words of tongue or pen.
The wisest are these: Leave pants for
Ah. well! For us all hops still remains
For the bloomer girl and the man of
And, In the hereafter, bloomers may
Be not allowed to block the way!
