It was supposed by soine that the item orlglnated witli the vvheelinen themselves, but a letter shown us yesterday from one of thein States his own and his friends' ignorance of the article until their attention was called to it by a letter from a gentleman in Ann Albor. They all disclaim having anything to do with the News item, which it is now thought was sent that paper by a member lately expelled from the Ann Arbor Bicycle Club.

Some months since he procured of Mr. Cropsey the key to the lodge room above his store where the effects of the organization were stored, being held by Oeo. Scott for $2-1 rent, and removed the charter to his own room. Mr. Scott meeting Billington on the street last Saturday stopped him a moment in conversation about the charter in the course of which he took hold of his arm- forthis'tissaid, Scott was arrested on Monday for assault and battery. As a retaliatory move Scott had Bülington arrested for stealing the I. O. G. T. charter. A search warrant was issued and the charter found in Billington's room, was removed to Justice McMahon'solIice, where both cases come up to-monow mornlng nt nine o'clock.]
