It was almost Ave o'clock when Gen
try was brought out for a preliminary
warming1 up for the attempt to break
his own record and the u orld' record
for pacing stallions 2:03k'. Tho track
was heavy from the rains of Thursday
night, and it was not generally expect
ed that ho would succeed. The other
races of the afternoon had, however,
greatly improved the trade's condition.
Two or three miles were paced at a
lively clip, tho great crowds cheering
Gentry enthusiastically. They wanted
him to win and he seemed to know it.
Billy Andrews drove him and when ho
was ready for the start, John Dicker
son with his little running horse went
to tho half to pace htm in. Tho second
time ho came up to tho lino An
drews' gave the nod and was
away. Down the first quarter
ho flew like an arrow, but tho watches
showed that he had consumed :3l in
reaching that post. Hope of breaking
tho record fell faster as it .was noticed
that the watches Indicated 1:02X when
ho reached the half. Then the effect
of the 'pacing horse on him began to
show itself and he made tho third
quarter in 29Jtf. Down tho homo stretch
the horse came like the wind,
and It was evident that he
was pushing tho record very close.
Great cheers went up from the grand
stand at the magnificent exhibition of
speed at the finish, which rose again
when the time was hung out and it
was officially announced 'that Gentry
had broken his record and reduced tho
world's stallion pacing record from
S2:03K to 2:03K.

The Swindle Hold in Conception.
Prrrsiiunaii, Pa., Aug. 8. A land
swindle by which residents of Pitts
burgh lost 8100,000, and perhaps more,
lias come to light Requisition papers
for the arrest of .1. F. Vansmith, one of
tho principals In the fraudulent trans
action, have been issued by Judge
Porter. Vansmith has been located in
Alexandria, Va., and it is expected
that his art est will be effected Satur
day. Not only has the SI 00,000 been lost, but
over one hundred persons who bought
land from Vansmith, and built homes for
themselves, are without title to their
property, and aro liable to be dispos
sessed. The swindle was bold in con
ception and in execution. Forged and
fraudulent deeds and certificates
for western land, it is charged,
were exchanged for good Allegheny
county land, and the latter was sold or
mortgaged for cash. James W. and
Joseph Brecn, who traded land in this
county worth S20.000 for worthless
deeds, have made information against
the men concerned on the other side of
tho deal. Two of them are supposed
to be myths and the other two. It is
expected, will be arrested beiore
nightfall. The United States post
office inspectors are also working
on the case sinco the mails were
used unlawfully in engineering tho
land deals. Vansmith, as he is known,
came from Chicago, where it is said he
had been under suspicion. He at once
published alluring advertisements of
Chicago lots and California and Wash
ington lands, for which he held the
power of attorney to exchango for Al
legheny county land. Vansmith dis
played wonderful genius and ere long
had unloaded ten lots centrally lo
cated in Chicago; land at Lake View,
Cal., and at Seattle, Wash.
Tho new purchasers have sinco ascer
tained that their deeds, certificates,
abstracts, etc, aro valueless. Van
smith sold or mortgaged his purchases
here as rapidly as they w ere acquired
and quietly left tho c'ity. The case has
been worked up and tho principals lo
cated by a local detective agency. Tho
agency has also discovered many inter
esting incidents in connection with
Vansmith's life. It is also intimated
that a resident of Pittsburgh, of some
prominence, is an ally of Vansmith and
he will also be arrested.
