of course , there might be bounds to Hun

Continuing , the premier remarked that no

NEW YORK. Jan. 1. Jimmy Michael of
Wales again demonstrated his superiority as
middle-distance wheelman tonight befwo
n crowd of tncr 12,000 people In Mia twenty-
five mile match mco with Kduardo Tayloro
of France on the hoard ttxrok at Madison
' 'Hilly" Young , who had Taylore under Ida
careful Supervision In training tor tills race ,
s-ild tonlRhl after the wee was over that his
nun should have utnrtud with a higher gear
than Ot. Hut the work of his man alter ho
exchanged his broken machine for one geared
to 104 was not up to his trainer's cxpccta-
tlcm ami there Is no reasonable doubt from
his work that Michael can give a Inlle In
twenty-five to the Frenchman and beat him
easily at that.
Men. women , boys nnd girls thronged
every available Inch of Madison Square gar
den tonight for the regular Indoor bicyclu
races , which were held tindur the uurplcrs
of the American Cycle Racing association.
The hoard track was arranged sa that Kin
rldcrii had to cover ten laps to complete a
mile , nnd the measurement was vouched for
by throe city surveyors. At ! l o'clock It wi.i
estimated that 10,000 people were In the big
building , and then there were folly half as
many nwro clamoring for admission at the
The big event of the evening was tlin
'Mlehaol-Tiiyloro ' race. Tayloro won the polo
on the toss. The FreiKhmnn's Rear was
ninety-four and .Michael's 100. The riders
got on the scratch line at 10:20 : o'clock. Thy-
lore rushed oft and caught the pacers on the
first turn , with Michael two lengths behind.
Tayloro rode like a whirlwind , ami at tha
end of tlio first mile led .Michael by a length.
In the flr-st lap of the second mlle Michael
forged ahead , and at the end of the third
mile ho was one lap to the good. In tlio
fourth mile i.Mlt'hael gained a lap , and In the
fifth ho had the same distance to his ercdlt.
Tayloro was outclassed In the eighth mile ,
and ( Michael passu.ii him for the third tlmo.
Time at the end of the eighth * mlle for
SI'ECTATOUS OET EXCITKD.
Thy lore lost hi * pacemakers In the tenth
mile , and at the beginning of the eleventh
Michael was close up to him and paused
him , then being four laps to the gooJ. The
spectators wore by this time worked"up to
the highest pitch of excitement. The
Frenchman was evidently beaten , but ho
stuck to liLs work and was seemingly not
dlshoartncd when Michael pasacd him on
the thirteenth mile for the fifth time.
Michael ran up another lap to his account
In the fourteenth mllo. In the seventeenth
mlle Tnylore roilo around after Michael's
pacemakers for three laps , but the effort
weakened him considerably and he had to letup
up and 'Michael ' ran ahead another lap at the
end of the nineteenth mile.
Taylore's saddle broke In the twentieth
mile , , and in exchanging wheels ho lost two
lap.s , thus giving 'Michael ' a clear lead of a
mllo. The wheel which was substituted for
Taylore's damaged ono was geared to 101 ,
but the French rider was unable to cope with
the superlative efforts of the "little wonder , "
and the midget gained another lap at the
close of the twenty-third , mile. From this
to the end of the race Michael went oo
swiftly that It took all the starch out of
his rival , and Michael finally won by thirteen
laps. Time by miles :
