Pace is Somethiue Terrifiic Several
Falls Recorded Hottest Contest
Ever Known, by Far - Surpassing
All Former Records.
New York, Dec. 9. The early hours of
the fourth day of the great six-day bi
cycle race found eighteen men still ped
aling, away for honor and profit. The
men were all seemingly determined.
with the possible exception of Stephane,
who had developed a case of stubborn
ness which his trainer had a hard time
in combatting. The motion of the wheel
is beginning to affect the riders brains
and even in the fitful snatches of sleep
which. they allow-themselves they imas-
ne they are still riding.. The men must
be forced to sleep, in most instances by
the trainers. They want to be up and
away at the pace which has shown no
lagging since the start.
The wonderful endurance of the men
is best shown by the actual time spent
in sleep by the leaders. Miller had slept
just one hour and six minutes in the
lirst seventy-two hours of the race. Ri
vierre rode 1,124 , miles without a wink
of sleep and he . then took two hours.
Waller had slept three hours, Rice five
hours, Moore six, Pierce six and a half,
Golden nine and three-quarters, and
Stephane seven hours, in the same time.
Elkes made 1,000 miles in the first seventy-two
hours despite the fact that he
had slept twenty hours.
There were two falls during the early
morning hours. Pierce, who has been
particularly unfortunate in that respect,
fell at the Fourth avenue end of the
track about 2 o'clock. Moore ascended
so high on the Madison avenue bank
about 3 o'clock that he slipped down the
curbi He was urtinjured.
The pace during the morning was
something terrific Waller, who came
on about 1 o'clock, set the' ball rolling
and kept it up for three hours. Miller,
who had been sleeping, jumped in be
hind as soon as he' had returned to the
track, and both men raced around the
track lap after lap. Hale let himself
out in dead earned this morning. Be
ginning about 2 ofelock Ije clipped off
lap after lap at such a pace that Ri
vierre, who took pace from him, had to
drop out. . Hale, it; Is claimed,: is just
beginning to show his true form and
will be heard from at the finish.
Schinneer had troubles this morning.
First, his wheel became damaged and
he had to dismount to have it repaired.
Then at 6:30 o'clock he fell off and hurt
his knee, 'forcing him off for twenty
minutes. He fell again at 7;15, but re
mounted and was off again. It was re
ported at 5 o'clock that Stephane was
ill. He left the track at 4 o'clock, peev
ishly . saying that 'he had riot had
enough sleep. He was unable to sleep,
however. - His eyes - were' dreadfully
Diooa&hot and stared wildly. He was
brought into shape at': 5:50 o'clock and
returned to the trade

merly of Colorado. Smith came into
Seattle last night on the steamer Far

by the leaders in the house of represen- on foreign ; affairs vof the house of rep

these the bankruptcy bill will be given

measure will' be reported bv Chairman
Henderson, of the judiciary committee,
before the holiday recess, but it will
not be taken up by the house until after
the recess. It is understood that Speak-
er Reed and 'the committee on rules will
be disposed to give this bill every ad

dlie mainfly to the fact that a strong im-

cile the many conflicting interests inside Y
of the committee.
These represent aM shades' of the
financial subject and are so muchi v at

purpose is to await the action or the
deadlock in that committee. The ways

at present in the way of framing finan

evident that the committee on banking

ways and means committee will enter

frame a bill -on broad lines calculated
to meet the present financial require
