The official organ of the C. W. A. in Its issue of Sept. C comments editorially on the existing trouble as follows: "The four letters C. A. C. C. stand for the Coast Associated Cycling Clubs, pronounced by the L. A. W. a black-' list association. It was formed by the cyclists of California because they believed they could run their own affairs much better than the L. A. W. was doihg. Many erstwhile pronilneat L. A. W. men are connected with, the C. A. C. C., and its influence appears to be spreading to other states beyond the Rockies. Jusl what the association's The California Secede™. f-r -- --in HE movement? of ill the Assoclated Cy- I cling Clubs of Cali• fornia, who have j M assumed control of * Sunday racing en Pacific coast, Fft«oo» Iflt-entlotit. the are watched with great eagerness by the officers of the L. A. W. The early race meets held in that section were fairly successful and the outlook for a general secession of western riders from the league looked encouraging. Lately, however, advices of the progress of the Sunday Racing League indicate that general dissatisfaction is felt by the racing men, their confinement to purely local tournaments spreading discord in their ranks. A prominent wheelman in San Francisco describes the situation as follows: "The L. A. W. national circuit has been a success far beyond the anticipations of the riders in this state. Great numbers of new men are coming to the front, and yet California has by her own act, cut herself off from all part in this great circuit. The men who howled long and loudly for Sunday racing have it, and it has been in n measure a success, but whether it is worth the price paid is another story. The racing season in this state, if the meets hold on the Olympic circuit are entitled to such a title, so far have not been very prosperous. In this city there has not been one meet since the Velodrome fiasco, and yet we are told that when Sunday racing was the rule there would be Sunday meets with great crowds. Some of the best racing men are beginning to see the situation more clearly now, and they real- i/.e, just as was predicted when the Sunday racing movement began, that they have paid the penalty—suspension by the L. A. W.—for the violation of '.he league rules." •sucess of the C. A. C. C. little or great, strength is is hard to determine at this distance. * * However, be the the time has arrived when the Canadian Wheelmen's Association, must either recognize or ignore it. Somo time ago British Columbia requested that the blacklisted riders of the C. A. C. C. be allowed lo compete in races sanctioned by the C. W. A. This request was hot granted, the new association being told that when it demonstrated its control over cycling affairs in its jurisdiction, action would be taken. Now British Columbia wants '.he question settled one way or the other, The success of their race meets depends very largely upon the presence of these American coast riders, and while no threats have been made it is believed that it would not take much to cause British Columbia to throw off its allegiance to the C. W. A., and cast in its lot with the C. A. C. C." Above we show cuts of three famous Inventions taken from Sues' machine movements, copyrighted 18BT.

I'm not making A New Adjustment. • Chain adjustment at the rear fork iugs hag never been one of the features that cyclists in general admired in a bicycle, although a great deal of in-, genuity has been expended by cycle makers and specialty makers to make such chain adjustment devices convenient to operate. There has always remained the Irksome work for the cyclist of making the adjustment alike on both sides, and the adjustment by eccentric discs in the rear fork lugs, by which it has been sought to overcome the objection, have somehow not become popular, probably because eccentric devices in this part of the machine could not very well be made stout enough to work satisfactorily. It seems now that part makers have learned a trick from the tandem builders who effected front chain adjustment in the crank hanger by placing an interior shell containing the bearing members eccentrically in it. This has been found so satisfactory that on several tandems this mode of adjustment in both hangers has been employed and now by a gradual evolution there are signs appearing on the horizon that the same method will be rather co*nmonly adopted for single machines.

The fact that the Amateur Athletic union holds a one-mile national bicycle championship each secison has suggested the point that the L. A. W. should discountenance this event. The national one-mile L. A. W. championship was won by C, M. Ertz of the Riverside wheelmen of this city at the Philadelphia meet. Naturallly this rider received the championship title. Following the league meet the A. A. U, hpl4s, its annual championships, and lamong the events is a one-mile bicycle face, which was won by I. A. Powell, of POWER TRANSMITTER, chain passes over at the rear wheel on what answers the same purpose as the ordinary small sprocket wheel. The sprockets of this wheel are loose and are really a part of a large sprocket wheel. The latter consists of parallel disk wheels attached to the hub of tlia wheel. Resting upon the small sprocket wheel are extended levers which fit into specially constructed grooves at some distance from the center of the hub. As the chain pulls at one point of the inner sprocket the extended lever engages one of the grooves and transmits the power to that point. The cut will explain this more clearrly. If this is readily understood it will be seen that the same force that is applied tc the small sprocket is transmitted to a greater radius, aud hence with the same exertion additional speed is attained. Unlike the present method, the pulling section of the chain on the rear sprocket does not cover one quarter of the circumference thereof, but only the point near the top, thereby making the resistance considerably less and ul- lowing the difference in power required to be transmitted to where it do the rmst good.

In the recent twenty-four-hour race he retired at the seventeenth hour, hoping to recruit his strength by a temporary rest. Somo well meaning, but misguided, friends gave him a potion, a sort of mysterious endurance-ciim-speed elixir, which, by all accounts, nearly settled him. He was seized with violent abdominal pains, and for days afterward felt the effect of this drastic remedy. So sore does he feel about, mentally and'.physically, tha^t no one dare mention the speed mixture in his presence. From such like philtres may all good speedmen be defended! Rivierre goes to the United States to try his luck in various handicaps, of six, twelve and twenty-four hours' duration. Our American cousins seem still able to tolerate long endurance fixtures, as witness the recent six days' grind at Boston. Time was when such events evoked more than passing interest iu England; we remember something of the kind'long before the advent of pneumatics, in 1879, at the Agricultural hall, when solid-tired ordinaries competed. may „ , and our American cousins are welcome to keep their six days' grind as long as they please on their side of the her* pond,.
