TRIAL Of OFFICIALS ON REBATING CHARGE
(Scrlppa News Association)
Providence. R. I., OcL 10. After elud
ing the immigration officials for over a
fortnight, the yacht Frolic with a cargo of
Chinese immigrants, was seized in the
Providence river today and confiscated in
the name of the federal government. Sev
enteen Chinamen and three members of
the crew were arrested. The command
er and others of the crew were not
present and therefore escaped. The
false fac. ' yacht with its cargo came up the harbor
undetected and it was not until a yard
watchman stumbled onto two Chinamen
that its presence became known. When
he went to arrest them they explained
that they were from the Frolic and ad
vised the watchman to leave them alone.
This statement led to the seizure.
