The particular -• provision in the bill which boxers>hope to get in on is as follows: .

The bicycle meet of the Intercollegiate Amateur Athletic Association will be held May 27 at the Manhattan Beach, track, New York. ..President Elliott, of the L. A. W., is overjoyed by the constantly increasing number of applications to the league. Last 'week was a record-breaker, it would appear. Just 2,039. applied for membership. The- largest number received for one week last year was 1,518, which list was made known June 2S and it was "high water mark" until the score of the week just passed. Surely the L. A..W. is destined to soon crawl up to that desired 200,000. When Mr. Elliott took the executive chair his aim wag 100,000. Now it has been raised to 200,000. "Remember," he says, "twenty-five members make one consulate, fifty members make one .subdivision, 100 make one division. Divisions make the L. A. W." Steady is the growth of the L. A. W., and natural. In time the present generation of cyclists will look, back with pleasure upon the results achieved by the great membership.

Recently In Pittsburg, Peter is quoted ,as saying: "For another try at Fitz..I would walk on my knees from here to'Ne'w. York." Peter and his -following are beginning to say 'of late that the Irishman showed up In an even of better class with Fltz In, Ujp benefit! go.at^he.Madison Square garden, soon after their meeting in Mexico; and'they figure Maher just about the same, yet, as "though he had never •been defeated.hy the Australian.

Rhoades, who pitched for Louisville in lS92,,is with Pawtucke Paul Radford is covering short for Ba.n gor, and Sharrott, with New York i 1890, Is- playing right. Breckinridge whose home runs were so tremendous feature four years ago, and who wa picked -to. be the coming- great National league first baseman, is glad to find niche upon the Brockton team. . Lin coin, who pitched for Cleveland In 1890 finds his class at Fall River. Reddj Henraban, who was with the Cbicagc Maroons in 1888, Is on second for Port land. The Brooklyn team Is composed o first-class ball-players. There does not seem to be a laggard, has-been or slow player on the nine. They can bat run fairly well and are all fast, keen fielders. Sammy Samuels, who played thin for Von der Abe last year, has been let out l>y Springfield, and is now on the market. Sammy was out to the game yesterday in all his glory. " Baltimore has signed a young _ln- fielder named Kelster. He may' be given a chance to play third. "Wheeling, W. Va., has a pitcher named Northwlng.' He cannot possibly be a southpaw. : Philadelphia has shifted the batting order, Nash now leads off, while Sullivan, who has done no batting bits eighth. 1 Players who predicted that neither Hastings nor Gore would last In League company are beginning to hedge. All the League teams except New York and Pittsburg have been beaten by minor league teams this spring. . Bostonfans already claim for Bergen, the new man, that he is the finest throwing catcher In the League. .

A writer in one of the English reviews relates that duringa conversation with George Eliot, not long before her death, a vase toppled'oyer the -mantelpiece. The great writer quickly and'un- conscionsly put out her hand to stop its fall. "I hope," said she, replacing it, "that the time will come when we shall instinctively hold up tho'mah or woman who begins to fall as'im.ta'rally and unconsciously as we arrest a falling 1 piece of furniture or an -ornament."'' 1 .'.

St. Jullcn, 2:111-4, crossed tht Rockies sixteen times when Orrln Hiokok was tracking him. Gus Macey, who marked ,Beuzetta, has hopes for further honors behind Neale, 2:18, a stallion recently sent him, sired by Vatican, and which last year could trot In 2:12. It was Ed de Cernea who made a bid of $10,000 for the fast young mare, Ona- qua, 2:081-2, recently. He was v acting, it Is said, In the- interests of Mr. James Gordon Bennett. Another pole team goes to Europe, Lulu Stanton, 2:181-4, and Tonmont, 2:181-2, having 'been purchased by William" Clint of Liverpool, Eng. It pays to school fast ones to the pole, they meet a ready market. Tnrf Had Sfxbla. Utica (N. Y.) horsemen have organized an association and will give a meeting in connection with the Mohawk Valley circuit. Utica was once a link in the grand circuit and should a liberal pool hill be passed in the Empire state would be very apt to build a new mile track and drop in line. Charles Backman, of Stony Ford, who had Electioneer, will retain Alcantara, Leland and a few others ot his Ja- 'mous stud, but the old farm is never again to figure extensively as a birthplace of turf stars. Seth Griffin will reniain at the recently completed mile track of the New England Breeders' association, Read- villc, Mass., and keep it in shape at a yearly salary. ' He has built a]] the fast tracks and is the best in bis particular line we have ever had and can tell "rast soil" the moment he examines a -ract proposed as a site for a track. Mr. Griffin's track machines are in use wherever trotting'has a foothold. The well-komvu and well-bred Clorine, 2:13 1-4. by C, F. Clay, dam by Onward, sold for ?1,050 at Fasig's sale recently. Only "Ike" Woodruff of the old staff of crack drivers remains. He is not a wealthy man, but rich in reminiscences o£ the old days when his brother Hiram headed the troting-borse drivers,-and a very pleasing conversationalist. He is assured a home for life by the Veteran Firemen's association of New York, having "run with the truck" when a young man. Mr. W. C. France, who was formerly so prominent on the turf, now takes little active interest in breeding or trotting matters. He had great success with Harry 'Wi'.kes, 2:131-4; Francis Alexander, 2:19; Albert France, 2:20 1-4, and others, later retiring to Kentucky, and with Red Wilkes, making a handsome addition to an already large bank account. Edith H., 2:103-4, owned by Congressman Warren F. Daniell of New Hampshire, goes into the stable of James Golden and should "acquit herself creditably.. Golden has a good trio in Edith H., Caprice, 2:121-2, and Beaton Wilkes. 2:13, and, should no accident occur to them, will land some good races over east this summer.

Amcricanis have given to the bicycle arc very few. It was a Frenchman, or, rather, two Frenchmen—the Michaux brothers—who invented the principle o£ the pedals, which made possible the wonderful ground-gaining ability of f he modern safety. A statue commemorating this invention was last yeaj' erected in France. An Irishman invented 'the first serviceable pneumatic tire, and maay have imitated his. vork and, in some respects, improved on it. The pneumatic tire was not less woductive of speed than the Miclmux nvciition. America, however, can lay, claim to the introduction of the wood; rim, which was first used by an Amer- can manufacturer of wheels. He ./bought he had a fortune in it, but tho rim itself was non-patentable.' The vood riia in one season drove out the steel rim, and now any machine with, steel rim is a back number. lu spite of these facts, however, thes VmerJcan wheel is better 'made, more lurable, speedier and generally more» attractive than those made abroad, and he export tr^de in then} is.increasing 1 .'
