Two riders col lided e.nd fell, and nine others pedalling madly close behind, had no time, to avoid them, and tumbled in a heap over them. Two sustained such serious injuries that they aro out of the ra;e. Iloliister, the Salt Lake City representative, has a fractured hip and broken ribs, and Van oni, the Italian, is badly cu-t. News of tho accident, and the eager expectation of seeing a repetition of It, brought such thousands of spectators that tho enormous building was unable to accommodate them. It is not a lovely spectacle that the Madison Square Gar den presents. The sight of the weary, ihaggard-eyed competitors, monotonously trailing round and round, hour after hour, does not appeal to ony genuine sporting interest, and only the hope of seeing serious, possibly fatal, accidents brings most of th...
