Important Arrests in Detroit of :i Chinaman and an American Charged with Having- Smuggled Mongolians Across the Canadian -Border. CHICAGO, Sept. 29. —There was great excitement, in the Chinese .quarters over the reported "arrest in 1 Detroit of. Sam Moy, the Chinese merchant residing here, on a charge o£ ug-glin^-. Hip Lung, reported to be the wealthiest . Celestial in Chicago, hurried to Mr. Moy's defense at once. He %yent to a, prominent banker friend and succeeded in having that gentleman telegraph to Detroit to secure Moy's release on bail, which was placed at ,?5,000.

Ind., Sept. 29,—There is no place in the country where Nancy Hanks is more popular than this city, where Doble has trained her for two seasons, and a crowd of 8,000 or more turned out Wednesday afternoon to pay homage to the new queen. She repaid their loyalty by the greatest effort of her career and the world's harness record now stands at '3:04. The conditions were all in favor of the mare. There was a bright, clear day, with no wind, and a track as good as mechanical skill could make it. Started to Beat 2:O7. Shortly after 4:30 o'clock everything was ready, and the spectators were advised of the coming event. "Nancy Hanks will start to beat 2:07," said Starting Judge Walker, though 2:05^/ was on the card as the figure. Frank Starr, who is Doble's assistant trainer, had the runner Abe Lincoln up the stretch to carry the marc along, but Doble let her step past the stand a few- times before he was ready for the battle against the watch. Then he jogged back nearly to the third quarter. How tlio Wonderful Trip Was Made. Getting Nancy under full headway at the distance the reins tightened and as the rapid hoof beats rang under the roof of the big stand the driver nodded, the starter gave the word, and the little bay mare was off like a rocket, a very different looking animal from the one that failed to do anything notable here last season. The first quarter according to officials was 31 seconds, though many made it faster. The half was in 1:02%, as Doble kept the mare well within herself. But from there to the three-quarters he let her step along at a marvelous gait, the time for the quarter being 29% seconds. This carried her three-fourths of .the journey in -1:32J£, and it was now merely a question of eaduraace to break all records. "Time" Takes a Buck Seat. Like something of steel impelled by electric force, instead of mere horseflesh, the mare kept up her flight, and when she returned to the starting- point two minutes and four seconds had passed. • Long before the official time was announced everybody knew tiikt the greatest performance ever made to sulk.y had been accomplished and was cheering the splendid animal that had done it. Finally W. P. I jams, president of the association, got a hearing, and as he was as excited as any of his hearers the remarks were brief. .He announced the mile by quarters, and Doble, who stood beside him, received a second , ovation when the mile was stated as be.ing'trotted in 2:04. The g:reat reins- man bowed again and again, but declined to make the speech called for. • ' New Tliree-Ycilr-Old Colt Eccorcl. A few minutes later Monbars started to lower his record and trotted in 2:11%, thus lowering the record of 2:12 for. 3-year-old, colts made by Astell over this track in 1889. .George Starr piloted the speedy black, and the fractional time was 33%, 33.%, 82% and 32 seconds. Ordinarily this would have been quite enough of a sensation, but it was overshadowed by what had just transpired.. .....-• Has She- .Reached H«r Limit? Mr. Doble was questioned about the great mile and asked if he thought Hanks had. reached her limit. He said •/that the track was just right, the mare was just right and the driver was at -himself. As to the possibility of Hanks lowering her record, he thought -that as 'she is only G years old she would train ori:next year and be even a better mare than now. Mr. Doble received hundreds of telegrams of congratulation from all over the country. He wired Mr. Bonner: "Nancy Hanks, 2:04 over a regulation track." This is a gentle hint that the owner of Maud S. and Sunol can present-him the $5,000 offered for the first horse to trot a mile in 2:05 over a regn- ationrirack. To Act for the President. WASHTS-GTOX, Sept. 29.—Vice President Morton will attend the dedication ceremonies of the world's fair at 'Chicago and probably assume the part of the programme arranged for the president unless there is such an unexpected change in Mrs. Harrison's condition as to permit the president's absence from the white house.
