in nflcrimr, the .eivlee of thii lior.-e to the public 1 make one claim for him,
which is that he h the highest bred trotting stallion in the woild. living or dead,
and in Mipport of this claim 1 am willing to submit it to any authority that can be
obtained, and if he Is not. then I will foifeit all my claims to horse knowledge. It
will be seen that Ills pcdigiee iepreeiits a union (if the purest blood of the English
and American thoroughbred nicer, one of liK grand dain, as also one of his great
giand dams, being impoitcd from England to the United States. When Venture
Aas on the turf, about eight years ago.'he was at that time the sensational horse of
thu 1'acillc Coast, and the -polling papers in the Ea-t. that weie always so much
opposed to running blood in the trotter, commenced picking away at his pedigree,
trying to lind a cold cro in it, at the same time declaring that it was pimply im
possible for a stiietly thoroughbred hoi.-c to trot as fa-t as he was then tiottlng;
but at la-t they had "to give it up, and admitted the fact that he was a stiictly
thoroughbred horse, but declared him a. phenomenon, and were unable to account
for his great speed at the trotting gait. But the fame of his sire, old Belmont, is
almost world-wule, and it is a well-known fact liis blood nicked better with tnc
trotting families than that of any other thoroughbied horse ever known, as, in
addition to Venture, two other thoroughbred sons of his, Capt. Webster and Owen
Dale, were said to hae possessed great speed at the trot. Besides these, he shed
the dams of Belle Echo, 2:20; Mora Shepherd, 2:30; Monarch. 2:2S; Xelly
P.itclien, 2:27J; Rustic, 2:30; which is a showing that a great many of the best
trotting bred liurcs cannot equal. Mr. Patrick Farrcll, wlio is one of the most
experienced drivers on the Pacific Coast, told me the last time that I saw him, that
Venture was the fastest trotter that he eer pulled a line over, and that if liis
temper had not been soured in his youth by bad handling, lie believed that he
would have equaled, if not surpassed, all the records cvci made, and that he could
show a two-minute gait with linn to a wagon, but in company lie would become
wild, on account of Tils hot blood, and was often beaten by horses that could hardly
run as fast as ho could trot. His record of '2:-)4 which "was no measure of his
speed, was made at the Oakland track in 1877, in a race which he won, beating
Alexander, Gus, General Keno and Billy Hay ward, this being his last public
It is thought by some people that an aged horse is not as good a producer as a
young one, hut no gi eater mi-take could possibly be made. Indeed, the opposite
is claimed by many large breeders, and instances arc so numerous of horses siiing
their best loals at an advanced age that the above theory has long ago been ex
ploded. Imported Dioincil was twenty-seven years old when he sired Sir Arehy,
his best son; Bonnie Scotland, who died only a few years ago, -bed Luke Black
burn and Gcoigc Kinney, by far the best of Ids get, after he was twenty-live; Im
poitcd Leamington sued Iroquoi-, his be-t sou, the last year that he lived, at
twenty-live. Among tiotlers may bo mentioned Volunteer, the sire of St. Jiiiicn,
wlio is thirty-one years old thi- spiing, and is said to be as lively and vigorous as
lie ever was, and young foals as piomi-lug as any that he ever got. Old Jla
niiltonian died in March, 1870, aged twenty-seven years, but shed two foals the
last days of his life, and one of thein, called llamiltoniaii's last, made a trotting
record of 2 :2oi the past season, and the other one is said to be equally as fast.
With these facts before us. it is plain that the age of a horse has nothing to do
with his success as a she. I think myself that there is a gieat deal in the condi
tion that a horse is kept, for an animal that i- well-fed and cared for, with plenty
of exercise, will beget better foals than one that is turned-loose and never stablc'd
or fed grain.
Vcntuie is twenty-two years old this spiing, and witli the care that I intend
to give him, I expect him to sire belter foals than he ever has before. He is a
lemarkably sure bleeder. Mr. Campbell assures me that he has never bred a
marc to him yet that did not pioduec a foal, and his many beautiful colts, now oh
Mr. C.'s ranch, aic woith a long journey to see; and now as he is to be kept so
convenient to the general public, no one owning a good mare should be so blind to
their own inteicst as to neglect the opportunity of obtaining his blood while they
have the chance.

THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1885.
THE UNITED STATES ASKED TO IN
TERFERE IN FAVOR OF BRIDGES.
A special dispatch from Washing
ton says :
Secretary Bayard hns promised to
put the machinery of the Stale De
partment in motion to got a pardon
for Bridges, the St. Louisan now
serving a sentence in the Sandwich
Islands, if, upon investigation, it
shrill appear that interference is
deserved. Bridges was convicted
of manslaughter n few weeks ago.
The report comes that liis "hard
labor" is on the reefs, and that his
physical powers arc giving way
under the strain.
Bridges went to tlio Sandwich Islands
several jears ago to accept a situation
in a mercantile house. While en
gaged there lie had some difllculty
witli si man, an American who had
been naturalized, and who was a
member of all of tho powerful secret
societies. Knowing the temper of
these people Bridges avoided his
enemy, and having occasion one day
to pass liis place of business pur
posely crofcsed to the other side of
the street to avoid any conflict. He
had proceeded but a few yards when
he was struck from behind with a
club, and on turning, perceived his
enemy. Bridges had no other alter
native and shot him. lie was tried,
and though the testimony of the
American Minister, who was mi eye
witness of the whole affair, showed a
clear case of self-defence, he was
sentenced to hard labor. On the
interference of the State Department
lie was granted a new trial. His
attorneys did not desire to entirely
clear him, knowing full well that it
was equivalent to a death warrant,
but his sentence and work of carry
ing it out evidently demanded further
interference from this country. His
father. II. II. Bridges, is well known
here, and is engineer in charge of
one of the large flour mills here.
Ilis family is also well connected and
well known. St. JLouis Olobe

For the past 30 days, our local
refiners have been selling Crushed
Sugar in bbh at 7c per lb, the lowest
price ever known in this market. A
year ago tho price was 10c, and
within the past five years it has
even been as high as 133c. How it
happens that such a staple article as
Sugar can be sold at about one-half
of the highest price in the past five
j'ears is explainable only on the
ground of increased production and
greater competition. Crushed Sugar
is selling in the New York market
to-day at Cc. AH the Crushed
Sugar sold in that market has paid a
duty of $2.82 per 100 lbs, less per
cent, while 90 percent of the Sugar
sold in this market pays no duty.
Refined Sugar is entitled to a rebate
of the duty when sold for export,
and hence New York refiners are
offering Crushed for export at 3.83
per 100 lbs. If they can afford to
sell dutiable Sugar at that price,
where they get a rebate of the duty,
they could, of course, sell free
Sugar at the same rate. The high
tariff by rail between New York and
San Francisco accounts for the dif
ference in price between the two
cities. It is claimed by some that
Sugar can be produced at a cost of
lc per pound, but that seems hardly
possible, and yet we sec Crushed
Sugar sold exduty at 83.83 per 100
lbs in New York. The imports of
raw Sugar at San Francisco for the
first two months of tho years 1884
and 1885 have been as follows:
January lb. .11,751,800
Total.. 23,273,000 31,271,300
Of the imports this year, 24,963,
900 lbs came from the Hawaiian
Islands. S. F. Bulletin.
AN OPINION ON THE SHARON CASE.
The New York Tribune says:
' ' It will require more than an ' ounce
of civet' to sweeten the moral at
mosphere of San Francisco after tho
poisonous exhalations of the Sharon
case havo ceased to rise. Its devel
opments are monstrously infamous,
and almost every one directly con
nected with it has become involved
in discreditable transactions or rela
tions. It has brought more discredit
upon San Francisco than all the sen
sational recreation to be derived
from it can possibly be worth. Tho
outside world wondera more and
more why Californians keep bo many
of their most deserving criminals
outside the penitentiary, and why
their courts find bo much dilllculty
in determining the commission of
crimes which the comrades of the
alleged perpetrators seem eager to
reveal in all possible ways."
A man may havo a sciontifio asser
tion to back up his belief tlial light
ning never strikes twice in thophine
spot, but we notice that vije'n his
wife reaches for a club ho always
puts up liis hand to cover Uie old
bald spot -where it struck before.
