THE TURF. - Law and Order League Shows Its Hand at Monmouth Park. DEHUTH A"SUyMEH"HRSL Huron, Azra, Bastiford and Other Western Cracks Arrive. The raid of the Law nnd Order Lenguo on Monmouth Park yetord.iy was so cjuletly conducted that ver) fetv ot tho racegoers know aoyihlug.lbout 11 until they read tho news In the Sporting Kdltlon of last night's F.VFNtsa WoKl.ti. 'I hen they learned that President Wnlcott, 'secretary Crlckmore nnd fctnrter ltotvc had been arrested nn warrants charging them with aiding In keeping a dis orderly house. '1 hey were tnken to Occanport nnd released on ball furnished by Jlr.L O. Ap pleby, manager ot the belting ring, who de scribed hlmsell as a "farmer." Alter tho last raco had been run eleien bookmakers wero scooped Inlo the net and also carted to ' Ocennpon, tilicro they went through the same process. Theso arrests only go to show that the threats of tho Law and Order Loaguo i were not mere biincomt c. Ills not believed Hut either Do Lacey or tho Hudson County ' Jockoy Club hud a hand In Instigating the arros s, but that it Is the work of tho Lcagus alono. Whether any moro arrests will follow Is a matter of con- Jecture. it Is believed, however, that the raids will continue until a case has been mado out against etery bookmaker. The officials re gard the whole matter as a huge Joke. Tho hookies did not scare, for last Winter they became accustomed to tretiucnt arrests at Gutteuburg. The raid did not Interfere with thern:trig to any extent. Only a slight delay occurud In the first race, duo to Marter Howe's arrest. Why Howe should havo bren arrested Is a in) story. Ihe must sensational Incident ot i the1 day was Demuth's win. He 1ms por lormed so poorly ot late that no ono savo the Intimate ti lends of Ihe Mablo Pelleted thatho had any chance. After he won It was said I hat he it as not a "Spring" horse. On June 'J7 he carried 110 pounds In n handicap snecp makes at a mile and a furlong. Lcpantu won h) head from lleckon, whu was a head be fore pickpocket. Ttttlic lengths awry camo Nomad, two lengths In irontof Demtith. Yes terday Drmuth had only live pounds oil, jet he cut out an I run a mile nnd a quarter In "".07, heating Itacrl.ind, Judge .Morrow and Itits-cll In hanilv style. It Is to bo Interred, therefore, that thn "bummer" has set In and thai June 27 must have been spring, for Detnuth could not run n little nit. ltace goers will remember the hog-kllllng which this animal tlgiued In last year. He ran last In one rare and started a lcwdn)s later to win In a cantor at long odds. All of wlilcuts vxiraorillnnry hecausj Ihl3 raco was run on June 1 1 at .Morris park, and Demuth Is nut a "hprlng" horse." i Mrnthmeath won tho thn tlrst rnro In very' cnsyst)io .testcrday.
