agent of the treasury L. G. Irvin has
returned from Tucson, where he has
been engaged in the Chinese cases,
now on trial in the United. States dis
trict court Irvin left here about two
months ago on the steamer Newbern,
in company with a number of Chi
nese, who were suspected of being
smugglers, who were going to make
an attempt to cross the Mexican
border, in definance of the law.
How they tried to carry out their
design and were captured, is already
known, twenty-four of them being
now in custody in Tucson, awaiting
the action of the court, which, will
probably return them to China. The
special agent made his headquarters
at Nbgales, and from there directed
the movements of the force of men
under him. The twenty-four Chinese
who went down on the Newbern,
left Guaymas on the train and
traveled as far as the Altar district,
where the services of Mexican team
sters were secured, and the team set
out on their journey. They traveled
for several days in a westerly direc
tion. Behind the team, watchingits every
movement, were two of special agent
Irvin's men on horseback. For three
weeks the party were out on a hot des
ert, it being particularly hard on the
deputies, as they had to keep the
smugglers in sight all the while, with
out themselves being seen. The Chi
nese camped at watering places, some
times for four days at a time. On
these occasions the deputies were
obliged to make a detour of the coun
try, to reach another watering place
miles away.
For three weeks this kind of a chase
was kept up, and the invaders were
finally dropped near the line, to the
southwest of Tucson, and they tredged
across the desert for tho remaining
few miles and crossed the line. The
deputies were close behind, however,
but made no attempt to molest them
until they were well into Arizona. The
entire lot was then arrested and
placed in Tucson jaiL Special agent
Irvin went to Tucson, and after giving
his testimony, was allowed to return
to San Francisco.
