2 COLOR LINE DRAWN Miss Kittie Knox Refused a Badge at the L. A. W. Meet. CYCLERS IN A TANGLE, Action of the Credentials Committee Is Generally Condemned.

PARADE OF THE WHEELMEN. The Denver First Prize Both for Numbers and Appearance. ASBURY PARK, N. July second day of the National League of American Wheelmen meet here proved most enjoyable. The weather could not have been fairer or the roads in better condition.

Hundreds of cyclers from every section of the Union, Canada and even Europe arrived with wheels and gay badges on every train; bands played marches and the register of visitors at the clubhouse of the Asbory Park Wheelmen fairly bulged out with its host of entries, while the seemingly inexhaustible supply of credential buttons waxed lower and lower in the committeemen's desks. Following close upon the Denver, Pittsburg and Harrisburg contingents, which arrived yesterday, came large delegations of the Chicago Cycle Club, Pennsylvania Time Wheelmen. Century Wheelmen and Press Cycle Club oi Philadelphia. The only Arthur Augustus Zimmerman, looking like a typical Jersey farmer, and his Bide partner, Harry Wheeler, took the Denver men in tow last night and promenaded thorn about town and over the beach until the travel-sore hearts of the Rooky Mountain men were faint and their shoes were full of sand, but with no discouraging effect upon their irrepressible lungs and wild Western yells. To-day the only excitements have been the run to Long Branch, through the Interlaken and Elberon, by the famous Surf road, the great parade and the discussion of Miss Kittie Knox's case.

She is an extremely comely colored girl from Boston, who recently won the first prize in the Maiden cycle parade for wearing the most tasteful and artistic woman's wheeling garb. When Miss Knox, whose appearance and dress had been objects of admiration all day, walked into the committee-room at the local clubhouse and presented her league card for a credential badge the gentleman in charge refused to recognize the card, and the young woman withdrew very quietly. Then the discussion commenced. Ninetynine out of every hundred members interviewed express the heartiest sympathy for her and condemnation of the hasty action of the badge committee. The iirst vice- president of the L.

A. G. A. Perkins of Boston, said to-day that he considered the refusal entirely unwarranted. The great parade was reviewed at the league headquarters in the Ocean Hotel by Vice-President Perkins, Secretary and Treasurer Van Nort of the Pennsylvania division, Frederick Gerlach, George K.

Barrett, W. Montague Perrett and F. J. Wagner of Chicago, E. C.

Bode of Cleve- land, Andry O. McGarritt of Boston, C. A. Limon of Philadelphia and Chief Counsel Gentle of the New Jersey division, who acts as one of the judges to award prizes for the clubs parading the largest delegation and the organization making the finest appearance. The principal thoroughfares were lined with citizens, visitors and excursionists, and the scene was one of extraordinary beauty.

The Denver Wheel Club carried tirst prize for both numbers and appear- ance, parading fifty-four men and womeu, all attired in spotless white linen suits and yachting caps. The second prize went to the Keystone Wheelmen of Philadelphia and the third to the Mercer Wheelmen Club of Trenton. The clubs prominent in the line were tne Pennsylvania Bicycle Club, Time Wheelmen, Quaker City Wheelmen and Pennsylvania Wheelmen of Philadelphia, the Harrisburg Wheel Club, Mc- Keesport Wheelmen and the Portsmouth (Va.) Wheel Club. The ladies' division, led by Mrs. Eoughton of New York, showed fifty-seven women, thirty-three of whom wore the bloomer costume, ten short skirts and the remainder the conventional habit.

GKAXI) ZOItGB OF ELKS. Little Hope of Healing the Breach in the Order.

ATLANTIC CITY, N. July The Grand Lodge of the Independent Order of Elks opened its annual session hereto-day. There seems to be little prospect of healing the breach in the order.

REID'S HEALTH RESTORED.

Greatly Benefited by His Recent Trip to Egypt. NEW YORK, N. July The many friends and admirers of Whitelaw Reid will be gratified to learn that his health is now fully restored. His trip to Egypt benefited him beyond all expectations. At one time he thought of accompanying D.

0. Mills to the Pacific Coast, but he finally decided to stay in New York. D. 0. Mills will leave for San Francisco about the last of July and will pass several weeks in California.

THE WOMAy O-V THE ITHhEIj. She Has Xot lireti Condemned by Ex-I'resident Harrison. NEW YORK, N. July A special to the Recorder from Indianapolis says: GenerafHarrison to-day was questioned regarding his reported statement that he was against the woman cyclist. He spoke with some warmth, saying: "I have never told any newspaper man that I was opposed to women riding the wheel.

Many of my women friends and neighbors here in Indianapolis ride the wheel and ride it well. I consider it a health-giving exercise when not carried to an extreme, but it is one that may be attended with some danger to a careless rider. daughter, Mrs. McKee, at Saratoga with her son, Benjamin, and both ride; new wheels were shippad to them last week. I have frequently spoken to friends on the subject, but have not said what is said in the story printed in New York.

Ido not believe a man's opinion would go far if it were against so popular a form of amusement." The friends of General Harrison are laughing at the attempt to make political capital out of the subject. The story originally started from a letter from a citizen of Dana, Indiana, where General Harrison was recently squirrel hunting. In this letter the Dana citizen says General Harrison said he thought the woman in question was giving a very unpleasant exhibition. TALK OF SCHOOL WORK Fifteen Thousand Educators Begin Their Annual Session. Callfornlans Are Honored With High Offices in the National Council.

DENVER, July The first session of the thirty-fourth annual convention of the National Educational Association was held at the Central Presbyterian Church this afternoon, in the presence of 4000 persons, the utmost capacity of the building, thousands of others being turned away from the door 3. It is conceded by the railroad officials that no less than 15,000 people have so far arrived in the city either as delegates or visitors to the convention. So great was the overflow at the opening that arrangements were made for another meeting at the High School building, which was addressed by Colonel Parker of Chicago, President deGarmoof Swarthmore College, and President Cook of the Normal School of Illinois. Despite the long distance that most of the delegates were obliged to travel, the attendance has rarely been equaled in numbers at any of the association's meetings, and never excelled in the character of the educators in the deliberations. At the session of the National Council this morning State Superintendent Black of California was appointed on the committee to investigate and report a plan for reorganization of ungraded schools.

Earl Barnes of Palo Alto, was elected vicepresident of the National Council, and Charles H. Keves of California was elected a member to rill a vacancy. The opening session of the general convention was called to order at 2:30 o'clock, and after prayer by Dr. J. Freeman, pastor of the Centrai Presbyterian Church, Aaron Gove, Superintendent of Schools of Denver and chairman of the arrangements committee, made a brief address of welcome.

He was followed by Lieutenant- Governor J. L. Brush, who represented the State of Colorado in the absence of Governor Mclntyre in St. Louis. Mayor T.

S. McMurray spoke the welcome of the city of Denver, after which Mrs. A. J. Peavey, State Superintendent of Schools, took the platform, receiving an ovation from the teachers present.

Her address was on "Woman's Work," and she took for her task the exaltation of the sex in Colorado. Woman's part in educational progress was touched upon, and applause frequently interrupted her. She welcomed the teachers in the name of Colorado women. Responses were made by President Butler, Secretary Shepard Colonel Francis W. Parker, principal of the Cook County Normal School, Chicago; ex-Governor Northen of Georgia, once known as "the educational Governor of the South," who responded for the teachers of the South, and incidentally said a word for the Cotton Exposition.

Afier music by the Apollo Club, with twenty male voices, on motion of General John Eaton, ex-Commissioner of Education of the United States, a cablegram of greeting was sent to Commissioner of Education Harris and his traveling companion, Professor Greenwood of Kansas City, now in Edinburgh, Scotland. Professor E. F. Hermans of the Denver schools gave a short address on the subject of physical training, calling attention to the necessity for keeping the body in proper condition during mental labor. He was followed by classes in physical training, conducted by Professor Jacob Schmitt, director of physical training of the Denver schools.

Notice was given that to-morrow morning constitutional amendments relative to elections and other matters would be submitted. SAD CAUSE OF A CRIME Charles Gorman's Love for His Child Led Him to Become a Robber. Shot to Death After He Had Stolen Money to Enable Him to Attend Its Funeral. CHICAGO, 111., July The welldressed robber, supposed to have been C. E.

Cole, who was shot and killed outside the Auditorium last night by Detective Rosenthal, after he had held up a saloonkeeper named McGloin and wounded two men on the streets, was identified to-night as Charles Gorman, a bartender, who came here three weeks ago from New York, where he had worked at 1276 Broadway. Gorman was out of employment, and was living with C. E. Cole, also a bartender, at the Somerset House, Twelfth I street and Wabash avenue. Last Sunday he received word from his home in St.

Paul that his child was dead and his wife was dependent on the charity of friends. He was offered $6 at a pawnshop fcr his revolver, but he needed $3 more to get to St. Paul to see his child buried, and it was in the effort to get money by crime that he met his death.

Reception Committees Kept Busy Receiving the Arrivals. GAY IN CRIMSON AND WHITE. Streets of the City Beautifully Decorated In the Colors of the Order. BOSTON, July What might be called the spray thrown in advance of the great waves of the Christian Endeavorers struck Boston to-day in the shape of detached delegates, who came in by the regular trains. Among the stragglers was a party of nearly 200 Nebraskans, who reached the union station this forenoon.

Most of the Endeavorers, however, came in singly or in groups of two or three, and they kept the reception committee on the jump, for few of them knew anything about the city or where they were to go. Three hundred Michigan delegates reached the Albany station shortly after noon. On the Chicago special, which was due at the Albany station at 3 o'clock, there were about fifty delegates, chiefly from Chicago. The Chicago and Cincinnati express, which arrived at 9:45 last evening, brought more than fifty delegates from Michigan and Pennsylvania. On the 10:20 train from the West yesterday morning nve Idaho delegates arrived and were directed to the Clarendon-street Church, which is to be their headquarters.

There was also a small party from Indiana, but they proceeded immediately to Newton, where they were to be entertained by personal friends. Three Illinois delegates also came in on this train. As the visitors enter the city they cannot fail to be delighted at the beautiful decorations of the nations. In one or two cases these approach the superb; the National colors intermingled finely with the crimson and white the Christian Endeavor colors. Upon many of the great building of the city, the homes of Boston's thrifty and enterprising people, are seen outward decorations which have never been surpassed in elaborate arrangement even on political occasions or National holidays.

From roof to sidewalk many of these buildings are hung with the red and white, while mottoes and inscriptions bid the visitors welcome. In the windows of the shops throughout the city the presence of the visitors is recognized both in decorations and in the arrangement of goods displayed for sale. The decorative effect in these windows is exquisite in the extreme. FOSTER ON CANDIDATES. Says Harrison Is Making No Effort for the Nomination.

The Indiana Delegation Will Go to the Convention Without Any Pledge. NEW YORK, N. July A Washington special to the Press says: John W. Foster, who has just returned from his fruitful mission in China, has lost no time since his arrival in learning the political conditions. As Secretary of State under the Harrison administration he naturally is in close touch with the ex- President, and has availed himself of the earliest opportunity to discover what the prospects are of a return to the White House of his former chief.

In the course of his hurried journey across the continent he had an opportunity to meet the political lieutenants of the ex- President, and his views of the conditions are therefore of interest. He said to-day that he did not regard ex-President Harrison as in any way a candidate for another term. "I do not know," he said, "how the Indiana delegation will stand. Of course, if Mr. Harrison were a candidate they would go to the convention pledged to him, for they are loyal to his interests and would rejoice to see him in the White House again.

But Mr. Harrison is not a candidate. He is making no effort for the nomination. "If it comes to him it must be through the general voice of the Republican party, and any movement for his renomination could not properly secure its impetus from his own State. "If the feeling throughout the party in favor of Mr.

Harrison should be so strong as to make it evident that the general desire was for his renomination, then, of course, the delegation from Indiana would gladly fall in line, so that as matters now stand, with no candidate from their own State, I think the Indiana delegates will go to the convention without any pronounced preference. Some of them will be for Allison, some for McKinley, others for Reed, if the inclinations of the Republicans in the State are to be taken as an indication of their probable action." CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE CZAR. Discovery of a Plot of to End His Life. PARIS, France, July 9. Journal's correspondent at St.

Petersburg announces the discovery, near Moscow, of an extensive conspiracy against the life of the Czar.

Lumber Company of this city, one of the largest firms of wholesalers in New England, is in financial trouble. Small tachments, which started from a disputed claim a days ago, to-day resulted in other attachments for about $20,000. No siatements of the probable assets or liabilities can be secured, but they are to be large. WASTED SEW TURK. Charlea Schlesinger Guilty of Many Petty Crimes.

He either pawned or gold the diamonds and kept the money. Then he tied from the city.

The detectives of this city learned he had gone to San Francisco and the police of that city were notified to arrest him. Detective Sergeant Herdlebnrg will leave for San Francisco in a few days with requisition papers to bring him back. QUIET AT GRAY GABLES. The President Steals Away on Another Fish in a Trip. BUZZARDS BAY, July Everything is moving along nicely at Gray Gables as regards Mrs.

Cleveland and her little daughter. The President, with Dr. Bryant and Joe Jefferson, spent a few hours at bass fishing in a pond near Crows Nest to-day. The lighthouse tender Verbena conveyed Secretary and Mrs. Carlisle and Secretary and Mrs.

Private Secretary Thurber was at Gray Gables a while this afternoon. Mrs.

Perine, Mrs. Cleveland's mother, arrived to-day on a visit to her daughter. THEIR HO AT CAPSIZED. Five Peraont Drowned While Trying to Cross a Jjflw. BATH, N.

DIES IN A TURKISH JAIL An American Tourist Placed Under Arrest Without Cause. The Hardships He Is Made to Endure End His Life While Still a Captive.

NEW YORK, N. July An American gentleniau who returned to this city on Saturday from the Orient brought information of the arrest and death of an American citizen in Eastern Turkey, in the early part of April last. The arrest was made without warrant of law and death, induced by the hardships endured, occurred in a Turkish prison. The victim was J. Weber and he possessed a passport issued at the United States legation in Constantinople a short time before his arrest.

He was traveling in Western Asia Minor and was at the time of his apprension on a railroad train at Eski Shur. He was arrested, but was unable to make himself understood and the local otficials affected to discredit his passport. The prisoner was forced to walk from Shur to Brusi, a live days' journey. He became ill and was transferred to a spri'ipless cart, in he was jolted about" until Brusi was reached. There he was thrust into jail, and in a few hours he died.

In speaking of the present condition of Turkey the gentleman said: one who lias anything to do with the American missionaries in Turkey is under suspicion, but matters are gradually assuming the condition which puts all Armenians in the line of opposition to the Government and they no longer strive to i keep their feelings to themselves. While on shipboard crossing the Black Sea one of the wealthiest and most influential Armenian merchants was one of my fel- low passengers. He talked in the most radical fashion about the oppression of the Turks. I warued him that he might be talking to Government spies and that he bad better be more guarded in the expres- sion of his He replied that he would be robbed and despoiled of his all i in a few years any way and he felt that the end night come early as well as late. "Such is the absolute despair manifested by al) in that unfortunate land.

Perhaps the sentiment against Americans on the part of the officials of the Ottoman empire is best shown by a recent edict of the Bultan which forbids any subject of the empire to visit the United States." INJURY TO THE DEFENDER. The Flyer Partially Disabled While on Her Second Trial Trip. Steel Piping Twisted Out of Shape by the Strain of Carrying the Sails. PROVIDENCE, R. July 9.

-The Defender strained her strengthening yesterday while on her second trial trip off the south end of Prudence Island. When she arrived at her anchorage in Bristol harbor it was discovered that the two steel pieces of piping that are bolted from the angle iron deck braces to bilge brace stringers of angle iron were bent and twisted out of shape on account of the great strain they were subject to in carrying the sails. It is likely that she will not have another trial before Saturday next, as the rigging will be again set up this week. All information regarding the sail area of the Defender has been and is carefully guarded. Xantueket'a Celebration.

Mechanics' Hall and two tents on the Common will be the main accommodations for the delegates. WAS BORN A THIEF A Novel Plea Made on Behalf of a Famous Crook.

INHERITED VICIOUSNESS. His Mother Claims She Is Responsible for His Crimes. STOLE FROM HER HUSBAND. Went Through All the Brain Sensations of a Burglar Before the Boy's Birth. PHILADELPHIA, July 9.

"Jimmy" Logue. the noted all-round crook, whose reputation extends all over the county, is still in Moyamensing Prison, where he is detained as a witness in the case against young Cutair for the murder of Johanna Logue. It is now learned that Mrs. Jennie Sullivan, the nurse of his mother, who died recently in St. Louis, is coming with papers to secure a pardon for Logue on the ground that his criminal tendency is altogether due to parental influences.

Logue does not expect the pardon, as he is simply detained as a witness. The principal document, which Mrs. Suliivan is reported to be bringing to this city, is a letter from Mrs. Logue to her son, In which, after telling him of the sorrow he had caused her, the dying woman wrote "Neither our folks nor you have ever known the reason which I believe to have been your ruin. They know your father and myself to have been respectable and honest.

"I was particularly careful in raising you, from reasons only known to myself, but in spite of all you have been a desperate blow to me when you were first sentenced. But knowing what Ido I cannot feel hard toward you, for it is now my firm belief that myself, your poor old mother, am responsible for your bad and unlawful habits. "Just before you were born, your father was drinking much more than was good for him, and would spend all his wages in drink if he had an opportunity. I found it very hard to get any money from him for our bread and meat. At last it got so that the only way I could get his money was by waiting until he was asleep at night, and then picking his pockets.

"Many and many a night I have got up when he was asleep in the bed by my side, tiptoed over to where his clothes lay and like a thief gone through his pockets and taken what money I found there. Then he had a hot temper, and I was always afraid when I would be picking his pockets that he would wake and find me doing it. "Thus I went through all the brain sensations of a daring burglar, even such as I am informed you have become. Shortly after that you were born, and I firmly believe you came into the world a thief, owing to that crime-like though necessary practice of mine. Your ever affectionate mothtr, Maey Logue." Logue's record is probably unsurpassed in the history of crime, for the number of burglaries, frauds and thefts he has perpetrated throughout the country.

TO FIGHT WITH DYNAMITE A Shipload of the Explosive Ready to Start for Cuba. Will Be Dropped In the Camp of the Spaniards by Means of Miniature Balloons. NEW YORK, N. July "Our dynamite expedition is to start in about ten days," said the secretary of the Cuban Club of Harlem to a reporter to-night. "The recent action of the Spanish Government will force the Cubans' hand sooner than was intended.

According to the plan of campaign agreed on in May, guerrilla wartara was to be kept up until the close of the yellow fever season in the autumn. Then large bodies of troops were to attack all along the line. "Whether the dynamite expedition will start from near Perth Amboy, New London or Philadelphia I cannot tell. We shall have about 150 men ready to embark on a sailing vessel. We shall not carry a large supply of arms and ammunition.

The feature will be dynamite. We propose to send a couple of expert engineers by another boat a few days ahead, so that they will be on the island ready to co-operate when the dynamite arrives. "We shall carry a lot of Fourth of July balloons to be used in a new and startling way for war purposes. These balloons are propelled by the fumes of burning alcohol. They can easily be kept afloat ten or fifteen minutes, accordiog to the size of the sponge and the amount of alcohol in the sponge when lighted.

"One of these toy balloons will carry three to five pounds of dynamite. By starting the balloon on the windward side of a town the current will easily carry it high enough above the buildings to drop the dynamite among the Spaniards and blow up their works. "Our experiments prove that the feat will be attended with no peril and will be sure to work terrible destruction in the enemy's towns. No matter how the wind may blow, we shall be on the right side of a fort for the wind to waft our balloons directly over the point to be destroyed, and the amount of alcohol will be adjusted to drop the dynamite exactly where we want it to fall. "Suppose we are on the west side of a town of 20,000 inhabitants, with a breeze blowing from the west, at 4 o'clock in the morning we can start three or four of these balloons, each carrying say five pounds of dynamite, making twelve or fifteen pounds in all.

Thunderbolts and earthquakes could not be more dreadful in their havoc. I fancy that any escaping soldiers who may chance to survive the dynamite would be glad to be taken prisoners, even by the most desperate Cubans. Death by the machete would be far preferable to being torn to pieces by dynamite. When we drop our explosives into forts the air will be black wkh flying masonry and missiles far more destructive than grape and canister. "We propose to give the Spaniards something to talk about in the next few months.

The horrors of the yellow fever will be forgotten when we begin to rain dynamite from balloons." CUBAN COAST PATKOTj. Filibusters Mot Active oh the Florida Const. WASHINGTON, D. July The cruiser Atlanta, which arrived at Port au Prince Saturday night directly from New York under orders to cruise in Cuban waters to prevent the violation of neutrality laws, left that port yesterday for Santiago de Cuba. The instructions of Captain Cromwell, her commander, directed him to cruise to the south 01 Cuba, performing duty similar to that of the Ra- Jeigh on the north of Cuba.

Since the return of the Raleigh to Key West on July 3 Secretary Herbert has been considering the advisability of relieving her with the Atlanta, as Captain Merrill Miller's reports show conclusively that little or no filibustering is actually contemplated by residents of Florida and that the activity on the part of the friends of the revolutionists there consists almost entirely of talk. It is probable that had the Atlanta stayed a day or two longer at Port au Prince she would have received orders to proceed directly to Key We3t and let the Raleigh come north. The latter vessel has been in southern waters only twenty days, however, and it is likely that she will remain two weeks longer. After that it will be the policy of the department to keep only one warship on guard to supplement the revenue steamers. Admiral Bunce will probably successively order vessels of his command to patrol Florida waters for thirty days each.

DRILLING YOUTHS FOR CUBA. School of Instruction Conducted by a Patriot in Aew l'ork. NEW YORK, N. July Colonel Terence Maguire, an old Cuban patriot who fought in the last insurrection, recently hired from John J. Clancey, a Broadway real estate agent, the second floor at 177 Broadway for $45 per month.

He assumed all responsibility for the rent and said that the place would be occupied by him for at least six months. Sigoe then people in the vicinity of Fiftyseventh street and Broadway have noticed that many young men enter the two-story building. A reporter succeeded yesterday in obtaining admission to the drillroom, where fifty young Cubans were under instruction in the manual of arms. Their uniform consisted of a white canvas helmet, a blue sweater such as is worn by bicyclists, a belt and black trousers. The colonel demanded to know how he had been discovered.

Addressing the men he said: "I shail make a rigid investigation. If I learn that a member of this company supplied the information which led to the visit of the reporter I shall punish him severely. It is absolutely necessary at this time," he added, "that our movements be conducted secretly. 1 shall make an example of the informer." The colonel was visibly agitated and at once ordered his company to disperse. He acknowledged that his men were prepared to go to Cuba and fight for the independence of the island.

JOSE JUAJtTFS SUCCESSOR. Senor Palma Chosen Civil Representative by the Cuban Patriots. NEW YORK, N. July The Cuban election for a successor to Jose Marti as Civil Representative was practically decided last night in favor of Senor Thomas Estrada Paima. It has been announced that the election was to be held on the 10th, but as editor Enrique Trujillo explained, the delegates voted by telegram, and the decision is known in advance.

The delegates in the principal large cities of the Union and Mexico represent thousands of voters in their respectives states. The returns were from era Crnz, Ocala, Key West, and from Tampa, and from New Orleans. New York also cast her entire vote for Senor Palma. TBREATEyED BY THE BEAR.

The Chinese Government decided to pay the war indemnity immediately, so as to save interest and the expenses of Japanese occupation, but this course was found to be impracticable, Russia insisting that no fresh loan should be negotiated within six months. QTjADSTOXE'S MESS AG E. English People to Meet the Just Claims of Ireland. LONDON, July The Westminster Gazette a few days ago asked Mr.

Roosevelt, Lieutenant-Commander CowleS and Commodore McNair and wife. Messrs. F. G. Mackay and W.

J. Ritchie and their wives, of California, will entertain hundreds of guests on board their launch. The party will include C. M. Palmer and wife of Minneapolis, Lord and Lady King, Lady Peyton and General Sayer of the Royal Dragoons.

The musio will be furnished by the Hungarian band. They will also give a large dinner-party on Thursday.

On Newton Crane's launch the guests included Judge Lefevre of Colorado, E. M.

Judson of St. Louis, Miss KirkpatricK of Colorado, Miss Stirger of Memphis and Miss Jackson of St. Louis. There was a great deal of friendly interchange of visits among the occupants of the houseboats and launches. Embassador Bayard made brief calls on most of the houseboats.
