It was an excellent aft'crnou for racing. Tho track was iu fair condition and everything was favorable to tho riders but a rattier stiff wind that met tho sprinters'011 the last stretch. There was not a large audience, but the events produced enough enthusiasm to give tlie races the dignity of a moot. Of course the Interest was centered particularly iu the Club championship handicap of the Riverside Cycling club. This was the third evtnt on the list and was won by Charley Grant'in 2:32^. Grant was a 50 yard man and Charley Ferguson, the scratch rider, took second place. David Morehart, the winner of the Martin medal in the last contest, was third man over the tape. He was a 73 yard man. Frank Skinner was a 50 yard man, and Charles Euyart, Clare Ray and George Riddle were 100 yard riders who failed to make the pace that was needed to place them among the early finishers of a pretty mile mn. This contest was for blood, and the riders earnestly entered into tho work. Tho time was not so fast as might be expected oC the riders who started, but some fast work was done in the first half. Grant set a killing pace for that distance and succeeded in shaking oR' Charles Ferguson, his most formidable rival, at that point. The last half he had no apparent difliculty in leaving the field. "-The mile race, a match between Skiuner and Grant, the two men who made a State record for 200 miles, was a loaf until tho last eighth when Grant ^sprinted well forward and established ills claim to superiority over his companion on the memorable double cen- tury'trip., The men Svc're started once with the pacc : m,alcer, Beryl Morehart, far in tho lead. Tho match riders hunff back from pace-making, and were called to the tape for a fresh try. The pace-ranker again pushed too far ahead and was of little value, though they ..drew into his neighborhood at tho half, when David Morehart took tip the pace. Again there was a wait and Skinner was forced to set the pace. Wheu tho last sprint came he failed to show up as strong -as his friends expected and Charley Grant shot over the tape five lengths In tlie lead. Walter Lewis was the timer and on the Grant-Skinner event his watch lu- dicated 2:47. It was a loaf. The first event of the afternoon was the one-fourth mile open. Charles Ferguson, the crack who is not riding this season, won out from Charley Grant •and Clare Ray in 44 4-0. . In tho half-inllo, to decide the claims of George Ridillo and Clare Kny, friendly rivals, Riddle was the winner. Each of the riders made a winning effort. The time was 1:24. This was a pretty race and excited much applause. The finish was tho prettiest one. of the Tho I Inn- was not phenomenal, 245, but the starters worked luird nnd perspired freely.

Beryl Moreluirt succeeded iu pulling awuy from Guorjto Riddle in tlie final stretch and tho latter quit. They-were about 300 yards behind the first bunch.' Each had a. handicap of 250 yards, Euyart, witli a handicap of 100 yards, did "not start. Ferguson, the ouly : scratch ninn, also failed to start Dave' Morehart had been assigned a hundi-. cap of'300 yards and Charles Grant! and Frank Skinner were cacti entitled to 75 yards but they, witli Dave More-' hart, started from tlie tape, n.nd on tho fifth lap caught and passed the' long start men. From that on there was no speed developed and the race was without interest, being a double event, tho forward bunch composed ot three scratch riders and the hlnd^ guard being the handicap riders, ! The first lap was made in 1:31.1 -Morehart gave tho pace to Skinner on' the third lap. This was completed In 4:40, and on the fourth 1,-ip Riddle was making tho pace for the, van, while Grant sot tlie gait for the three who were hard on the trail of tlie 250 yard pair. The fifth whirl saw. Skinner setting tho pace, and he took his squad a merry clip, drawing in and eating up the gap between the scratch men and the first couple in rapid style.. The fifth lap, nnd half the distance, was made in 7:49, and on the first quarter of the sixth lap, Grant drew up to pace the handicap men who still led. Riddle pulled'a way from .the bunch, and showed for a time unusual staying powers, though his. Judgment .was not so evident. He headed the field on .tlio turn into the stretch, but when the leaders passed the line Grant,.Skinner and Dave Morehart wore the men who were well up in front. On the seventh round Dave Morehart was working hard and Grant nnd Skinner kept him pegging at the pace, both riding easily. Skinner took the pace on the eighth circle and made the boys.ride for the- halt'. On the ninth ami tenth laps,' however, until the last sprint, all loafed. Tlio race next month, will .do-' cldc the ownership of the Martin medal and the championship of the Riverside club.

Fcrrio A. Randall, tlie conimittoomnn from tlie Twelfth district, reported tlint there arc at least 3,500 Democrats in tlie city of Ft. Wayne tvlio will support tho National Democratic ticket. It was decided that the wavering Democrats throughout the State shall be supplied with literature immediately. S. O. Fickeias was elected chairman of tlKr.conimittoe and George W.
