EMIL HERZ RETURNS TO AMERICA. New York. November 11. Eniii Herz is back in New York after several seasons of racing abroad, and will race his horses in this country during the coming season. He has seven horses in training, the best being Short Grass, a recent winuer in Kentucky. Others will probably be added to the string before the opening of the New York tracks next year. It was erroneously stated that Mr. Herz had smuggled his horses out of England and that lie himself was a prisoner of war. Nothing could have been further from the facts. The horses were sent from England with the consent and approval of the British war department, as is customary, ah! Mr. Herz was at no time detained as a prisoner of war. When he left the United States some years ago. Mr. Herz became a naturalized citizen of Germany in order that lie- might successfully carry on somo business enterprises he had in that country. For live years, since that time he lias lived in England, where be established his real home. He is a member of the Victoria Club, an huglish turf organization, the members of which readily vouched for him with the government otficials. In returning to New York Mr. Herz left England on a permit, as is usual, his conduct being guarati: teed, not only by Englishmen, but by Mr. Lowrie. the American representative, who is in charge of the affairs of German citizens. Sveral seasons ago the firm of Durnell and Herz was a power on the American turf, both east and west, and many a champion carried their colors. With the dissolution of the partnership both members of the concern went abroad and a full measure of success has attended each.
