I'lnro at Itcmlvlllc. .llnm.
Tlie Weather Conillllon
Were I'crlcct.
Iteadvllle, Mass., Aug. 25. Before a
great crowd of spectators nt Bcad
villc yesterday and with track and
weather conditions perfect, Lou Dil
lon trotted a mile in two minutes, a
new world's record.
So that no breeze might interfere,
Millard Sanders, driver of the great
mare, brought out the daughter of
Sidney Dillon for the attempt early
in the doy.
For pacemakers there were two
running horses hitched to road carts,
Peggy from Paris, driven by "Doc"
Tanner, and Carrie Nation, driven by
Scott McCoy.
' Tlie first score was fruitless, Lou
Dillon making a break just before
reaching the wire. On the second at
tempt, however, the word was given,
though Starting Judge Walker rang
his bell, but Tanner nodded for him
to say "go" and, turning to Sanders,
called to him to come along. Tanner
kept Peggy from Paris directly in
front of tlie peerless chestnut trotter,
while McCoy lay at her wheel. In
this way the trio went to the quarter
pole in 3014 seconds. -
With never a skip Lou Dillon went
so sinooth-gaitcd down the back
stretch as to lead those not timing
the mile to believe that her speed
was not alainiingly fast. The half
was clicked off in 1:0074. Around the
turn to tlie three-quarters pole the
clip quickened, the third quarter be
ing in 304 seconds, making that marl?
of her journey in 1:31. Faster and
faster came Tanner with the runner
and right with him trotted the hand
some California bred mare.
To the ama7ement of all the quarter
was drove in 29 seconds, tints mak
ing the mile in the wonderful time
of two minutes.
When Sanders jogged the mare
back to the 'wire, those who had wit
nessed the performance leaped to
their feet and sent forth cheer after
cheer. Lou Dillon apparently was as
fresh as though she had only been
opt for a jocging ex-creise.
Sanders said he fully believed that
before tlie season closes he will drive
the marc in 1:59 or better.
Favorites won all the four racing
events. "Seott" Hudson drove two of
the winners. Nervala and Dillon Boy.
"Budd" Doblc pulled off tho Blue Hill
stake of $5,000 with Kinney Lou,
while Curry had no trouble in win
ning with M Bock. It as announced
that on rridny Major Delmar will
go against the crehling record for
trotters, 2:0314. held by The Abbot.
Toledo, Aug. 25. George Ketcham,
owner and driver of Cresceus, upon
being informed of Lou Dillon's won
derful mile, sent the following tele
gram: "George K. Billings, Bead
ville, Mass.: I congratulate you on
the wonderful performance of your
mare. Cresceus transfers the crown
to good hands."
INDIAN LAND FRAUOS.
"Fnele Siiiii'k Atreilfn JlalclimTIioroviclv
Inquiry Several OlUclula IHmuIksciI
from OOlcc.
Washington, Aug. 25. Secretary
nitchcock said yesterday that mat
ters connected with the investigation
of tlie alleged Indian land frauds in
Indian Tenitory were progressing
smoothly. Several officials in the
territory whose actions have been
the subject of inquiry alreadj have
been dismissed, but Secretary Hitch
cock says he does not feel disposed
to make public their names. The in
vestigation is being pushed by the
secretary wherever there is tlie least
evidence of nttempted fraud, with a
view to the punishment of the guilty
parties.
Secretary Hitchcock is very much
pleased with tlie new rule promul
gated some weeks ago by the depart
ment in legnrd to the sale of allot
ments bj- the Creek Indians, saying
that it is preventing much fraud. It
is stated on good authority that Sec
retary Hitchcock has notified federal
officeholders jn Indian Territory who,
it is alleged, are using their positions
in the government service as a 'van
tage giound from which to do busi
ness in Indian lands, that they must
choose between their positions and
the land business. In other words,
the federal authorities whose names
are being printed as presidents, direc
tors and stockholders in tiust com
panies that deal in Tndiau lands must
get out of the companies or resign
their offices. Tt is said that some of
the accused offielols have intimated
that they will withdraw from the
land companies.

appeared a buektail, indicating the
presence of a survivor of the famous
First Pennsylvania rifles, "the buck
tails." During the passage of the proces
sion a salute was fired from Union
Square and bombs were discharged
at intervals. The Alaska delegates
carried aloft an immense pair of
horns, and a couple of badgers were
borne by the Wisconsin men.
Si.x survivors of the heroic Knapp's
Pennsylvania battery of light artil
lery marched in tlie line nnd were
warmly greeted. This is the rem
