Henkel Arrested Her.
Marshal Henkel, who. with his depu
tes and United mates Secret Service
Agent William J. Flynn, grouped In
the door of Mrs. Chadwick's apart
ments, had entered without knocking,
found her In bed. He said:
"Madame, I have an unpleasant duty
to perform, I am obliged to serve a
warrant for your arrest issued by
United State* Commissioner Shields at
**'• instance of the federal authorities
"I tun very nervous and in," replied
Mrs. Chadwick. “What shall I do? I
certainly am unable to get up.”
“In that case,” said the marshal, "I
shall be obliged to remain here and
keep you under surveillance. You will
realize that unpleasant as this Is for
both of us, you are a prisoner, and I
have no right to leave you here alone.
I will do everything I can to relieve
you of annoyance, however.”
Her Lawyer Appeared.
When the conference was in progress,
a man, believed to be Mr. Powers, one
of Mrs. Chadwick’s counsel, entered
the room and began to advise her. He
advised her to stay in bed and under
no circumstances to leave the room.
Marshal Henkel took exception to the
advice, and said: “If Mrs. Chadwick
needs any advice as a prisoner I’ll give
it to her. No attempt will be made to
move her from here to-night, but she
must go before Commissioner Shields
in the morning.”
The secret service men engaged a
room adjoining Mrs. Chadwick's suite
and established themselves there for
the night, while one of the marshal’s
men was posted in Mrs. Chadwick's
bed room, one outside her door and
another in the corridor. Marshal-Hen
kel said he w-ould remain in direct su
pervision of things ail night.
Well Enough to Appear.

ing Mr. Newton, of Brooklyn, one of
Mrs. Chadwick’s creditors, called to

whispered with her for a moment and
then left the room.
Soon after the arrest, and before it
was known whether Mrs. Chadwick
would be taken from the hotel at once
or not. the hotel management sent to
Mrs. Chadwick a bill for the rooms up
to to-day. She paid it and the bill
was returned to her receipted.
By permission of the marshal, Mrs.
Chadwick telephoned to her physician,
Dr. Moore, to come to her at once. He
arrived a few moments later. The
physician said that although he had ud

sanitarium, she would be able to ap

BEST RIDERS QUIT

WALTHOIR AND MUNROE AMONG

New York. Dec. 7.—Angry because
they believed the race was being un
fairly conducted and because methods
which they allege to be wrong allowed
other riders to gain a lap upon them,
five teams in the six-day race at Madi
son Square Garden quit the race early
The five teams which quit were
Walthour and Munroe, Bedell brothers,
Mayo and Newkirk. McLiean and Bow
ler and Butler and Moran. All of
them were among the best in the con
test, and among those most heavily
backed to win the highest prize.
The trouble was precipitated by the
most exciting period of riding which
the race had thus far given, when Root
and Dorlon, followed later by Stol and
Vanderstuyft, succeeded in gaining a
lap on their opponents. Walthour,
who acted as spokesman for the five
dissatisfied teams, declared that the
members of those teams relieved each
other at intervals not allowed by the
rules, especially in the case of Stol and
How It Came About.
Walthour was on the track through
out the sprint and riding a little ahead
of the rest. When Root was making
his meteoric dash half a lap ahead of
the rest, little Stol, the Belgian rider,
who had just relieved Vanderstuyft,
stole up past Walthour and began a
sprint to catch Root. In twelve laps he
had done what he tried for, and Wal
thour had been too much taken by sur
prise to catch him.
Then the partners in the five teams
named, who were not then on the
track, made their complaint and de
clared their intention of withdrawing.
Their partners, then riding, left the
track and all ten riders immediately
surrounded the officials and demanded
that the lost distance be restored to
After trying in vain to placate the
angry riders, the officials gave up the
tangle and gent for P. T. Powers, pro
moter of the race. When he joined in
the discussion and heard both sides of
the dispute, he told and the
others that they had no right to leave
the track as they had done, either by
the National Cycling Association rules
or the special contracts which they
made with the management. He con
“You can go hack upon the track or
not. Take your choice.”
Ten Killers Sn*pendecL
Powers issued a statement in which
he claimed that the Vanderstuyft-Stol
and Root-Dorlon teams won their lap
fairly, and that the withdrawal of the
five other teams was not justified.
After a conference between President
A. G. Batehelder of the National Cy
cling Association and R. F. Keleey,
chairman of the board of control of the
association, Walthour and the nine oth
er riders who withdrew from the race
were indefinitely suspended. The cases
will not be disposed of until the reg
ular annual meeting of the association
in February. Until that time they
cannot ride on any track in the United
States. Walthour has engagements to
ride in Europe in the early spring, but

After the dissatisfied riders had left
the Garden Mr. Powers issued orders
to all the gate tenders that none of
the men or any of their trainers or
handlers were to be admitted to the
Garden again during the week.
Some time later Walthour and Mc-
Lean returned and had a talk with
Powers. Walthour afterwards said he
had asked Powers for S6OO, which he
considered due him for the motor
paced race on Saturday night and his
work so far this week, and that Pow
ers had referred him to an attorney.

AYhat Walthour Snys.
Walthour, as spokesman for the sus
pended riders, gave out their version
of the trouble resulting in their with
drawal. He said:
“Root and Dorlon gained their lap
honestly. I have no ground of com
plaint against them and none of us
have. It is entirely against the unjust
scoring of Stol and Vanderstuyft that
we are fighting. Asa matter of fact,
they should be a lap behind us. in
stead of one ahead. It was this way:
“When Dorlon and Itoot had gained
their lap, both Stol and Vanderstuyft
were on the track making changes. 1
carried the bunch along In an effort
to catch the leaders. Dorlon and Knot,
and in doing so hit up such a fast puce
that I succeeded In tapping all of the
teams except three. Those three were
the Bedell brothers. Butler and Moran
and Dorlon and Root. We rode along,
after that, more slowly, knowing that
we had Is pried the others and what was
our surprise when the score was post
ed to And Stol and Vundcratuyft post,

and you know the result.”
At 16 o'clock to-night, 1.244 miles

Washington. Dec. 7.—The Senate to
day reached a decision to take a vote
upon the Philippine civil government
bill, providing for the construction of
railroads on the islands, on Dec. 16,
and in addition, transacted considera
ble other business.
Mr. Platt of New York created
something of a stir by introducing a
bill providing for a reduction in the
congressional representation of the
Southern states, on the ground that
many of the citizens of those states
are deprived of their right to vote,
and Mr. Scott plunged the Senate into
an exceptionally early debate by at
tempting to secure the passage of the
bill granting pensions to the telegraph
operators of the Civil War.- The de
bate was not concluded.
A large number of bills and joint res
olutions were introduced and many pe
titions presented. The discussion of
the time for voting upon the Philip
pine bill brought out the fact that there
is a general understanding that the
Christmas holiday recess will begin on
Hailey Watt Sarenatle.
The introduction of the Platt bill
created considerable excitement on the
Democratic side of the chamber and at
the request of several senators por
tions of the measure were re-read.
Mr. Bailey was the only senator who
made any comment upon the measure.
With a tone of sarcasm he asked if
there was "anything in the bill affect
ing the representation In the Senate
from states wherein it is charged the
Governor and not the Legislature se
Mr. Platt replied that the bill con
tained no such provision.
With this the incident closed for the

reading of the title of the resolution
evidently revived memories of the last

upon the faces of several senators. Mr.
Lodge suggested that the resolution
might be indefinitely postponed with
profit, but in the absence of Mr.
Daniel it was allowed to go over.

Mr. Scott, in explanation of the bill

that while the operators were not en

of the government and had performed
most important services. He added

Mr. Galllnger announced his inten
tion to vote against the bill, Raying
that if It should pass, it would open
the way to the pensioning of all other
classes of civilians who served in the
war and entail large expenditures.
Mr. Cockrell called attention to the
fact that tvhilp soldiers were paid only
113 per month, the telegraph operators
had received from S6O to SIOO per
month, and on this account he op
posed the bill.
Mr. McCurnber spoke in support of
the bill, saying that there would be
only 187 beneficiaries.
