With the return of the cycling season
when century runs by organized clubs
are of dally occurrence, the question of
permitting women to take part In these
long-distance trips is again discussed.
It Is maintained that century runs have
become athletic competitions, such as
require the utmost physical endurance
on the part of tbe riders, and that eou
Btltutlonally a woman Is not sufficiently strong for such a fatiguing test. Distinguished   medical   authorities   pronounce the task of covering so grent u
distance as a hundred miles in a day
awheel   exceedingly   harmful,   on account of the prolonged nervous nnd
physlenl strnln Involved,    for   which
women rurely possess   the   requisite
physique, and for other rensons thnt
physicians only can property    appreciate.  There are few organized runs of
a hundred miles In which some of the
participants do uot fall lo complete the
century.   This being true of men, It Is
by so much tlie more evident that women   should   refrain from the practice.
Aside from the Injurious physical results that attend century rhliug    by
women, the question presents another
view even more Important, that of (he
propriety of women engaging lu sueti
runs.   The example of wonieu at tending the ordinary open century run. iu
which the proportion of the    parttcl-
pant! Is rarely less than lifty men to
one woman, who rides generally without escort from early morning to late
night, in the common ruck, is not calculated to elevate cycling, particularly
among women.    Rather It litis a tendency to degrade the siiort.   The nei es-
sary or usual incidents nttendlug ecu
tury runs are not conducive to the cultivation of feminine graces and should
receive the stamp of disapprovnl by tlie
cycling public.   Resolutions condemning tbe practice are being considered
by bicycle organizations.    If   women

determine this matter for themselves,
the men should determine It for them.

When President Dole of Hawaii left

of a bill which promises to make history
it is for passage by the Hawaiian congress and provides, in the event of a wnr
iii which the United SUites may need the
Hawaiian inlands for a base of supplies
that the islands shall be put under the
protection of tlie American flag.
It was prepared with the knowledge ol
members Ol the senate committee on foreign relations anil had the approval of tin;
adminsit ration OH certain conditions. One
condition was that it should not be submitted to the Hawaiian congress unless
there was u war.
When President Dole left tills country

One can easily see why Englishmen
-wish success to plans for the liberation of Cuba. Their losses through tbe
devastation of the Island are only less
grievous than our own. Scores of cotton and tobacco estates are owned or
mortgaged In England, and almost all
tbe money Invested In the Insular railways came from London. It Is with
English capital tint public works were
undertaken In a number of Cuban cities
between 1878 and 1894. No Interest or
dividend will be forthcoming on aay of
these securities until peace has been
restored In the Island.
It Is somewhat remarkable, when one
considers the matter, that tbe line of
fleers of the navy bave never asked
themselves what tbey would do some
day, with ships to command and no engineers competent to manage the motive power. Tbey are men upon'wblcb
heavy responsibility rests, day and

A case has Just beeu decided in England that is of Interest in this country, for tbe circumstances are very lik«
those tbat have frequently occurred In
the United States, but which have not
reached the courts. The case was based
upon the charge of manslaughter In a
game of football.   The game was being played under the association football rules, which were designed specially to limit the hazard In playing the
game In question.   It was claimed that
the defendnnt, contrary (o (he rules of
(he game, charged the deceased from
behlud aud threw rim  violently  forward against the  knees of    another
player, from which he received Injuries
that caused his death.   Tbe judge held
that "tberules of the game were of little
consequence, for no association could
override tbe law In sucb a manner, nor
could lt make lawful and Innocent that
which was dangerous.   The law of the
land declares thnt lt Is unlawful to do
that which Is likely to cause the death
of   another,    and liability cannot be
avoided by the enactment of rules reducing the danger," aud the prisoner
was held for manslaughter.   The Judge
said:    "But, on the other hand, If a
man Is playing according to tbe rules
and practice of the game, and Is not
going beyond lt, It may be reasonable
to infer tbnt he Is not acting In a manner which he knows will be likely to
produce death."   In the heat of playing
the game men forget, In the desire to
win, to observe the rules tbat have been
adopted lu order to reduce the rink to
a minimum and do things that result
fatally to their opponents. Football has
become established as one of the most
popular of all our American sports, but
however lt may be hedged about with
rules It Is a dangerous game, a fact
that Is too well attested to admit of dispute.   The English case was brought
to put a stop to the lawlessness of tbi
game as lt bas been played at Rugby,
and lt Is probable that lt will be ample
to Inspire some respect for the lives
and limbs of men engaged In the spirited contests.

During this engagement the Cuvite forts
maintained a s((*ndier nnd stronger fire
upon the American squadron than in the
