BAY CITY PARTY HAS BEEN POSTPONED
OWING TO THE DEATH OF A PROMINENT MEMBER.
T. Alfred Griffiths, Who Won Fame for the Club in Its Racing Contests, Passed Away Yesterday Morning.
Owing to the death of T. Alfred Griffiths, a prominent member and racing man of the club, the fourteenth anniversary party of the Bay City Wheelmen, which was to have been held at the Palace Hotel maple room this evening, has been indefinitely postponed.
Mr. Griffiths was an old and popular member of the club. He has carried its colors to victory in scores of road and track events.
He was first taken ill with an affliction about a year ago. A trip to Honolulu afforded him no relief, and since his return he has been gradually sinking, until the end came yesterday morning.
The funeral will take place to-morrow at 2 o'clock from the family residence, 34 Liberty street.
