FOR THE WHEELMEN. Nous of Interest to Msa Who Ride Blcrelea. It la estimated that there are now 250,000 wheelmen in the United States. This estimate does t Include HV riders, but grown men. Of this number, nearly 30,000 are members of the league of American Wheelmen, while lt least 100,000 are members of local clubs. Such a body of men can net help but be a power politically, if properly managed. Whether or not it would be advisable for wheelmen to go into politics is another question, liecently, In Philadelphia, the cyclist? took a band in electing men to run tiie city, and they caused consternation among tlie professional politicians. They first learned the records of candidates fur Aldermen, and then published these records to the world. Next, they got good meu to run for the office in thirteen wards, and they suc ceeded in electing eight of the thirteen. Tn iLouipville there are about 1,500 wheelmen, and if they should decide to take a hand in politics, tltey Would certainly bo a power. Mr. Ia J. Berger, editor of The Bearings, write aa fol lows on this subject: - We believe the L. A. W. should enter the field of general politics, Systematically guiding the Totes of its (own numbers will not only gain tremendous uowcr. but will instruct tlie gejKTsl public in a new direction, gradually wipe out rotten machine politics and create an interest among the people. which as a matter of fact does nut practically exist -lieir own government. 1 be pe pie think a lot about it. but Iher dou't vote intelligently. It ia easier to elect lionet Alut-rmen, btreet Commissioners Mayors, liood Supervisors, State enators and governors than to deal with dishonest meu elected through eare-ltwsneas. It is absolutely easy, in most cities and State-, for .the cyclists' vote to control eiocuous. Tlie Independent Cyclers have moved from tlio Macauk-y building to the north east corner of Third and Walnut, over ueymers. If the weather ia pleasant this morning the Louisville Cycle Club will lake a run to Jacob lsrk.

The Louisville Cycle Club road race. May 30, and the Prince Welle race, June 24, will be the birgest things in wheeling circles in Louisville this ye Valuable prizes wilt do onered in taoj race.
