BT. PAUL, MONDAY, APRIL 17, 1582.
' The "intelligent compositor" sadly re
duced Mr. Slaten's contribution for the
freedom of the South. The amount
which he gave was one million dollars.
The blissful ignorance of the Chicago
Times in assuming not to understand
Col. Morton's Fargo idiom where he
speaks of "four aces with straight flushes
barred," is refreshing. 'It must be anoth
er case of the "old , old Story. ' '
As the Minneapolis paper which afflicts
St. Paul knows the Democratic nominees
for council and school board in the
Second ward cannot be defeated, it fails
to personal abuse. Epithets from such a
disreputable source are more desirable
than praise.
Mb. CoeucAN's statement at Sherman
Hall Saturday night that 175,000 fami
lies were booked by the steamship lines
for the Northwest during the present
season received partial confirmation by
a telegram from Chicago in Sunday's
Globe. That chronicled the arrival in
that city on Saturday of 3,000 emigrants
nearly all bound for this region and
eighty per cent of them for Manitoba.
There is no mistake about the Canadian
Northwest indulging in a genuine boom.
The way to cure the evil effects of the
primaries in the Fourth ward last Friday
night is to have a popular uprising to
repudiate at the polls the selections
made. The Democrats can purify their
primaries if they will decline to blindly
support the nominees, whoever they may
be. First class men can be found to fill
places in the council, and we can afford
to have no other. In building a new city
like St. Paul the expenditures are enor
mous and it is important •to secure the
best talent the community affords to
manage our public affairs. There will
never be a better time to minister a meri
ted rebuke than the present.
ICTTIXG THE PARTY ABOVE PUBLIC
TXTERESTS.
Judge Kcllcy, chairman of the House
Committee on Ways and Means, started
out very bravely, so far as talk was con
cerned, in the work of relieving the peo
ple of the burthen and inconvenience of
the present internal revenue system, by
reducing the income of the government
derived from that source about $75,
-000,000.
The difference, however, between
what Air. Kelley promised to do
and what he has accomplished
In the direction of carrying out the
promiscnic made with such a flourish of
trumpets, can be better understood when
it is known that he has frankly confessed
lhat it is his intention to con
sult the interests of the Re
publican parly in reporting his revenue
bill, rather than the interests of the gov
ernment. Should it turn out that Mr. Kel
lcy'a conclusions as to the best interests
of the Republican party are as fallacious
as his pretended zeal in revising the
revenue laws of the country in the inter
est of the people, were hypocritical, it
wonld be a very handsome thing in Mr.
Kelley to retire from the position he oc
cupies with so little credit to himself and
such disastrous results to the business
interests of the country.
Whatever may be the result of the con
test now going on in Congress over the
proposition to reduce to the lowest min
imum possible, or abolish altogether, the
internal revenue taxes of the country,
there is no doubt that the question will
become an issue among the people atthe
coming fall elections, that will not down
at the bidding of that class of statesmen
who conceive it to be their duty to frame
the revenue laws of the country with the
view of subserving partisan interests rath
er than the interest of the people of the
country who pay the taxes and share
the burthens of the government.
The position taken by Mr. Kelley on
the proposition to reduce or altogether
abolish this tax on the business interests
of the country, is in keeping with both
the conduct of the leaders and the policy
of the Republican party. The best in
terests of the country bave not only been
subordinated to the interests of the politi
cal machine, but the principles and re
form measures so long advocated by the
leading men of the party, have been
doffed and donned by the men who
formulate Republican platforms and
browbeat Republican caucuses, with the
same indifference and unconcern with
which an auctioneer would dispose of a
piece of merchandise to the highest bid
der.
IHE GUITEAV CASE.
The petition of Mrs.. Scoville filed in
the county court of Cook county, Illi
nois, to be appointed conservatrix of the
person and estate of her brother Charles
J. Guiteau, if allowed, will illustrate the
proverbial uncertainties and delays char
acteristic of the civil and criminal
practice of the courts of this
country. The statement of the law of
case in the AssociatecMPress report is so
utterally absurd as to give the entire
proceedings the appearance of being a
legal force from beginning to end. If the
case at bar can be reviewed by a county
court of a State not having jurisdiction of
the offense for which Guiteau has been
indicted, tried, convicted and sentenced,
then the rule of law does not
hold good which clothes the courts when
the crime . is committed with exclusive
jurisdiction of the offense. . ; -
Guiteau has been convicted and sen
tenced to death for the crime of murder,
by the only tribunal having jurisdiction
of the case, and the judgment of the
trial court can only be reviewed by the
appellate court of that district.
Even the writ' of habeas corpus
will not' lie after sentence
in capital offenses. The proper remedy
is to take the case up on a bill of ex
ceptions to the tribunal authorized to re
view the judgment of the trial court.
There is no way whereby Guiteau can be
brought within the jurisdiction of the
Illinois tribunal, to which his sister has
appealed, in order to try the question- of
his sanity, and if his only hope for life
depends on the decision t>f the courts .of
that State, then his days are few and
numbered. '■' ■'- .. . ;

practice by some establishments of sweeping

Mr. R. W. Taylor,, formerly of the paint

that company, and is decorated with Chinese
ornamentation. A sheaf of wheat, as emble

looks quite natural. It is a beautiful piece of
work.

will practically dig a new well from the be

old one by making it larger. The excavation
he is making is about five or six feet square,
and is boarded up as the man goes down with

most noticeable feature of the - conceit was
the cornet bolo by Aug. Tilleman, which was

Northwestern Trottlnq Circuit.
We notice that several of the trotting as
sociations in Minnesota have announced, or are
ai ranging programmes for trotting meetings
each going it alone. Now this is all wrong.
We want to ccc a number of trotting meetings
in Minnesota, the present season, but it Would
be far better to have none at ali
than to have those given result in failure; as
they most certainly will, if the various asso
ciations in the etate attempts to go on and act
independent of each other.
What is wanted is an early conference of
parties from localities interested in breeding
and turf sports for the organ zation of a Min
nesota or northwestern circuit, the latter would
be better bo as to include Dakota, Winnipeg and
Northwestern lowa, perhaps. Bat whether
these latter are included or not, there 6hould
be a circuit of the Minnesota association. It
is time for Minnesota breeders and owners of
fast btock to wake up, and let the people of
other Ecctiocs know what its being
done In the direction of breed
ing the trotter, is this stale. F# its
age no state in the Union can make a better
showing In this respect than Minnesota, even
with the splendid aggregation of turf per
formers and high-bred brood mares gotten
together by Commodore Kittson excluded.
Hardly a county In the state but has one or
more cnterprizing citizens engaged in lac
breeding of fine trotting stocfe, and who also
take an intereet in trials of speed. There are
also trotting associations at Minneapolis,
Hastings, Red Wing, Stillwater, Rochester,
Owatonna, Moorhead, and other points, cer
tainly sufficient in number for a good circuit.
But if a Minnesota circuit should be formed
we feel confident that Fargo and Grand
Forks, Dakota, and Winnipeg would ask to
be allowed to come in. An association was
organized at Winnipeg last fall, and this
spring quite a number of trotters have been
bought in this and other states by Manito
bans. The leading citizens ef Fargo met one
day last week and organized a trotting asso
ciation, at which nearly fifty persons and firms
signed an agreement pledging themselves as
members of such an association, to the pay
ment of such Bums as they might be called on
for from time to time to defray the ex
penses of the association not esct edlng $50
each.
This means business. The same spirit ex
ists at Grand Forks, in Dakota, at Moorhead
and other points in Minnesota, There are a
plenty of horses in the territory covered by
the proposed circuit to fill all
the classes without receiving an
entry from any other locality. Gentlemen, of
the different localities named, get together and
organize the circuit.
In this connection we would esteem it a
favor if breeders and owners ia Minnesota
and Northern Dakota would furnish us with
a list of their horses in training, giving breed
ing and present record. Such a list would be
of great aid in makiDg up classes for race
meetings .
•Sale of' Trotters at Louisville .
The sale at Louisville week before last of
trotters from the >tables of Messrs J. C. Mc-
Ferran & Co., R. 8. Veech and 11. C. Me Dow
cll, was largely attended and the prices paid
ivery satisfactory indeed. la .'all seventy odd
head were sold, the animals ranging from 4
year olds tojyearlings, the lot aggregating the
neat sum of $29,260; making an average of
over $360 per head. The stock sold was, with
few exceptions, the get of Cuyler, Prineeps,
Auditor, King Rene and Triton. The highest
price paid for any animal was $4,000 for the bay
filly Halcyon, foaled 187 ( J by Cuyler, dam
Lady Abdallah, by Alexander's Abdallah,
sire of Goldsmith Maid, the purchaser being
Mr. Robert Bonner of New York, who also
made a number of other purchases. After the
sale Mr. Bonner interviewed by a reporter
said:
"How is old Dexter getting along/
"He is just like a colt and notwithstanding
his twenty-four years, 1 could drive him a
mile to-morrow better than 'twenty.' Dexter
is a wonderful horse."
After a short conversation in regard to the
thoroughbred crosses which Mr. Bonner
earnestly favors, the reporter asked him if it
was true that he had made an eflort to gel
hold of Maud S. before fahe was purchased by
Mr. Vanderbilt.
"No, sir," was his emphatic reply, "1
knew nothing at all about the mare, and cared
very little about her until she became the
property of Mv Vanderbilt. I never thought
of buying her at any time."
"Do you think her record of 2:10 .\ will be
beaten at any early day ?"
"I do assuredly ; lam satisfied that in the
next two or three years we will have horses
trotting in 2:06 and 2:C5. Rarus can trot now
In 2:08. I have driveu him myself in 3:11*.
It is merely a matter of time and judicious
breeding. There is no telling how fast a
horse may be made to trot."
" What do you think about the prices that
are being paid for this stock to-day V
"Only fair. Some of them have gone far
too cheap and others have been well paid for.
Upon the whole, however, the prices to-day
are 6ma11."
Just at this time, Pit-a-Pat, the sister of
Dexter, was brought out, and Mr. Bonner
paid his respects to the auctioneer. He
bought the filly for $600.
Corrections of Pedigrees.
Turf Editor of the Globe.
St. Paul, April 14, 1882.— Referring to your
first page items of 10th inst., we may be per
mitted to correct a few errors:
First— Your correspondent, "Toe Weight,"
falls into a mistake when he twice calls
Cleveland Bays draft horses. They are coach
or heavy carnage horee?, not draft.
Second— ln paragraph 8. under "The Table
of Brood Mares," you print among those who
have produced two 2:30 trotters, Fanry, to
Star of the West. All wrong. Pardon.
Richard Richards, of Racine, Wis., owns the
survivor — and did own both till one died —
namely: Bay Fanny, by Richards' Bellfounder,
the dam of Alexander, 2:28%, Resolute, 2.29#,
etc., etc. ; and Gray Fanny, dam of Star of the
West, 2:26^, etc. And thus you have con
fused the similarity of cognomens, which
shows that this old common way of naming
animals should be avoided. Have a distinct
and characteristic name for each horse and
mare; be just a little bold. Gray Fanny was
not bred to her 6on, Star of the West." Oh,
no; not for Joseph.
"Bob Ingersoll," you call him, but properly
"Bobolink," was raised by our fellow-towns
man, 6. A. B. Shawe, who has raised many
more such and better.
We had thought we had made plain long
ago — always correcting when we saw where
this error was perpetrated, namely that of
calling Guide, also raised by Mr. G. A. B.
Shawe, full brother to Calamus, (2:24 *).
Bah? awful. Now, once more we will try to
Have Buch false records corrected. Mr. G. A.
B. Shawe, St. Paul, raised and sold in St.
Paul three young stallions, all sired by the
great Swigert, and we may add this same Mr.
Shawe bought the first Swigert foal ever sold
any person anywhere, and it was the great
mare Zephyr, the mention of whose name
opens his (S.s) eye wide, if it is never at an
other time fully opened, to say nothing of his
mouth, with tongue turned lossc. Well,
briefly, she proved a great mare, and in her
and Mambrino Gift's (the great) son, Memory,
Mr. Shawe has one scion of two such parents
as but few can claim. Beside, in the family
is owned a full sister, Moss Rose, to Zephyr
that is valuable indeed, and will make it
known in good fast time. Now, these three
stallions, by Swigert, all, and dams of
all by Richards' Bellfounder (same
as Zephpr's, Moss Rose' etc., etc., etc.,)
one was named Guide, by Swigert; dam
Nelly, a good mare, full 6ister to Bay Fanny,
dam by Alexander, as above. Guide. Mr.
Shawe sold to Isaac Staples, and be sired Sam
H., trotter, fast indeed; and one citizen, B.
Heaupre's two very fast pacers, one so proven,
the other full brother and promising equally
rapid. What speed might not Guide have
gotten if he had had an opportunity with
mares of breeding, speed, etc. Too bad.
| The second stallion was Hughcy Angus,
Mr. Shawe sold E, T. Archibald, j He was by
Swigert, dam Merrimack, (formerly Sorrel
Fanny) by Richard's Bellfounder. Merrimack,
was dam of Calamus, 2:24# at Minneapolis,
and a real trial at Rochseter, N. V., in 2:19
and better. When Mr. Shawe let this mare
and her full sister go he certainly did not
show much or any horee smartness.
.Thi;d-Shav,e, (bad to name for a man
while living) so named by Isaac Btaples, to
whom Mr. Shawe sold him. He is full
brother to Zephyr, Moss Rose, etc., etc. So
please, hereafter, Mr. Editor, write that
Hughey Angus is full brother to Calamus, to
Jeanctte, etc.
Next, you quote the National Live Stock
Journal of Fanny Cook. The editor
thereof falls 6hort of the whole
(important in thia case) truth.
Hebhould have said: Fanny Cook, though,
besides Dau'l Lambert and others, foaled a
marc full siater to Dan'l Lambert, that in turn
to the service of Abraham, son of Dan'l Lam
bert, (this daughter of the great old Fanny
Cook, having been bred to her half brother,)
produced a daughter that has a record of
2:26* , and has trotted in 2:24, perhaps better.
Not so very bad on a nice eunny moruing to
hold the repeater on such a mare.
As the writer "S," whose article you have
in your same issue, copied from the Spirit of
the Times, says, in closing, (translated): "He
injures the good, who spares the bad," and so
we have taken the liberty to tell more fully of
the facts. Horse history, like any other,
should be truthfully written. Of course we
»re aware you are not responsible for many of
these errors, but the author in fact was not
correctly informed.
Young Man Afraid of HisJHokses.
The American Horses in England.
Three of the principal spring running meet
ings in England havepasEed without an Ameri
can success being scored, the best performance
by an American so far being that of Mr. Lor
il'ard's Nereid, 5 year?, daughter of imp,
Saxon and Highland Lassie, iv the New
market Handicap, Wednesday last. More
than the usual international in
terest was felt in this race from the fact that
in 1879 and ISSO, Mr. Loriliard won it with
Parole ami Wallenstein, and last year he was
second with Mistake, which position he again
held with Nereid, Wednesday. The race had
six starters, with last year's winner, Berzencze,
the favorite at 2 to 1, and with Spring Tide at
3to 1, Maskelyne at 7to 2, Lead On at 8 to 1,
Blueskin at 11 to 1, and Nereid at 20 to 1.
Spring Tide won by five lengths, Count La
grange's b. c. Maskelyne being third,
Berzencze, the favorite, fourth. Spring Tide,
under Mr. Craven's colors, ran four times as a
two-year-old withour success, but as a
three-year old he ran eight times, being then
the property of Mr. Saville, for whom ho won
the welter handicap at the Newmarket July
meeting, and the British Plate, p. heavy-weight
hadicap at Brighton. In the autumn Spring
Tide was 6old to Lord Cadogan, for whom he
won the City Cup at the Liverpool autumn
meeting. Spring Tide was in the Newmarket
International run Friday, for which he was
handicapped at 109 pounds, but for which,
with the penalty of seven pounds for the race
above he had to carry 116 pounds. The
weight proved to much for him, he with Loril
lard's Mistake, and fire others being unplaced.
On ths afternoon of The Wednesday race, a N.
Y. Herald telegram says: A bet of £3,200 to
JE4OO. was accepted about Gerald fortheGni
neas, and as .£5OO to XlOO was simultaneously
offered against the long standing favorite
Dutch Oven, it would appear as though a
very 6hort price will be taken about Gerald,
who did a fine gallop with Iroquois this morn
ing. Wallenstein and Mistake are reserved for
the the City and Suburban. Both are sup
ported by the best judges of public form at 10
to land 25 to 1 respectively. The City and
Suburban is to be run Wednesday of this week,
and the Two Thousand Guineas Wednesday
of next week. Gerald also divides honors
with Pursebearer as second choice for the
Derby (won last year by Iroquois) at 100 to
8. One of these three events may give Ameri
cans something to rejoice over, but the- pros
pects do not appear particularly promising.
Develop inn the Speed of the Trotting Brood
Mare.
In last Monday's issue of the Globe we
gave considerable space to extracts from the
April number of the National Live Stock
journal upon the subject of the most success
ful periods of fruition of brood mares, the
conclusion reached lieing that that period was
between the ages of 4 and 17. As a natural
sequence the Journal writer took up in the
same article the inquiry, "Should trotting
brood mares be developed in speed before they
are put to breeding?" As a foundation for
hib argument the writer lays down the maxim
that if you desire speed, the witc conclusion
would tc to breed speed to 6peed to accom
plish that result. But the speed in both
parents, when developed in the highest de
gree, must not be rendered inoperative by un
healthful conditions or pbysicial disabilities.
"After a stallion or mare has been fully de
veloped, it requires the rest of one or two
seasons to enable the system to relax from
the tension of training into that healthful
state of nature which is most conducive to
successful reproduction. That rest should
come before old ago haj rendered the organs
of reproduction comparatively inoperative.
This is the case with the thoroughbred race
horse. Both in this country and England it
has been the practice to breed winners
to winners in order to secure
winners. The parents arc trained
and raced even beyond their capacity, as the
universality of their early breaking down in
the flexor-tendons abundantly proves. But
they arc retired from the turf when four or
five years of age. Then their prime— fully
matured and developed— i 3 devoted to repro
duction, with such splendid results, as to
justify the hopes of the most sanguine breed
ers.
"Notwithstanding the destructive practice
of not breeding fast trotting mare 6 till they
have advanced in age maDy years beyond these
periods, yet the showing upon its mere nu
merical phase is not in disparagment of thsse
aged trotting brood mares. One hundred and
seventy-six brood mares have produced 6ons
and daughters that have made records in 2:30,
or batter. Of these, fifteen have been devel
oped as trotters, making the fame records of
2:30. or better.
"Now to make the comparison perfectly fair,
the number of non-developed trotting brood
mares, and the full complement of developed
brood mazes, should be approximately given,
It is safe to estimate that 100 non-developed
mares are bred every year to one who
has secured a record of 2:30, or lower. This
is much within the comparative limit. If
non-developed brood mares that produce 2:30
trotters are more successful, then the record
should show that they outnumber
the successful, developed trotting
brood mares at least 100 per cent. But
the tabular statement really makes a far differ
ent exhibit. They outnumber the developed
mares only eleven to one. The showing,
therefore, when fairly analyzed upon the nu
merical basis, decidedly favors both develop
ing and campaigning the trotting brood mare.
"But all thsse so-called non-developed brood
mares do not properly kelong to that classifi
cation. Scores of them were fast-trotting
road mares, that had been developed up to
thsir ereatest capacity of speed, harnc3sed to
the heavier draft of the road wagon— such as
the dams of the great campaigners George
Wilke3 and Lucy. Scores, too, of famous
brood mares were themselves the daughters of
6wift-trolting mares famous for years, in
their prime for their speed and endurance en
the road, such as the dams of Green Mountain
Maid and Lady Patriot. Scores— twofold
more in number probably than the fast-trot
ting road mares— were swift-pacing mrrres,
that have been used on the road to defeat
the swiftest-trotting roadsters, and then have
been converted into so many successful dams
of trotting celebrities, that the student of
trotting pedigrees is simply bewildered with
the frequency of the pacing lineage interwo
ven with the texture of the trotting perform
ers. In this category must be included such
turf notables as Lucille, Katie Jackson, Scot
land, Monarch Jr., Dan Donaldson, and avast
array of brilliant performers. Upon a full
and fair estimate of developed brood mares,
therefore, it is manifest that complete statis
tics would largely favor the development of
the trotting- breod mare/
In support of the argument the Journal
gives a table of fifteen developed mares with
records below 2:30, Jams of foals also in the
list. Of the number only four "were less than
12 years old when they enriched trotting annals
with representatives in the 2:30 list. Take,
for instance, the four oldest mares— Lady
Lightfoot was 29, Flora Temple was 24, and
Lady Vernon and Lady Franklin each 23 years
of aga when they produced their issue that
have beaten 2:30 ! . Nothing comparable to
this success at such extreme ages can be
found in the entire range of successful non
developed brood mares. The list from 2:25 to
2:10 i performers docs not present a tingle
Mar&i
brood marc of an authenticated age greater
than 19 when her successful issue was pro
duced. The age of Will Cody's dam is
given as "about" 25, and Laura Will
iams' dam is al6o given as "a&ouf tweuty-two,
when their representatives were foaled. But
the pedigree of both of these dams is unknown
and the date of their birth is equally indefinite
"The amount of abuse which these grand
old marts received in their campaigns for
manyycarG before they were bred, is only sec
ondary to the avaricious cruelty that lifted
Widow Machree upon her achjnirfcet and al
most paralyzed limbs, even while her womb
was burdened with the weight of the magnifi
cent Aberdeen .and forced her to limp along
till the heated blood deadened the pain, ana
enabled her— during the temporary relief from
her constant suffering— to win her wonderful
record of 2:29 ,!j', in her memorable race over
the Union course -the graphic description of
which forms the most thrilling chapter in
Hiram Woodruff's "Trotting Horse of Amer
ica."
'Thus, extreme cruelty has uniformly
markad the racing career of nearly all the suc
cessful trotting brood mares that have not
been but into the harem till old age has ren
dered undeveloped mares impotent to produce
great performers. And yet, in the face of
these cogent reasons, able - turfmen and turf
writers have innocently wondered why more
developed trotting mares have not presented
to the trotting lists of 2:30, or better, a great :
er number of reprensentatives. The surprise
would be more reasonable that they should
have had any representatives there at all. But
the day Is at hand when developed trotting
mares will have a better opportunity, as
brood mares, to show their capacity than
formerly. In the olden time the trotter did
not fully develop his speed till he was from
twelve to fifteen years of age. To-day
his premature development begins to approxi
mate to that of thoroughbred racer. When,
therefore, the average trotting mare that is to
be devoted to brood purposes is earlier devel
oped, co as to be capable of her greatest fight
of speed in her prime, and then, after suffi
cient rest to enable her system to resume its
Dorinal functions, she is stint«d to worthy
stallions, in the uninjured prims of her life,
when all her vital energies are at the high
tide of healthful vigor, there is every reason
to believe, from facts-and figures and analogy
that, like the young, yet fully developed win
ners among thoroughbred brood mares, she
too will bring to the goal more splendid per
formers than if her own capacity for speed,
and her own ambition to excel, had never
been thoroughly developed."

HILTON LOSES HIS CRIP.
The Fame oj A. T. Stewart's Great Estab
\ lishment Departed- Mammoth 'Bust'
ness Destroyed— The Exclusive Order
Against the Jtwa Bean fruit.
[N.Y. Sun, April 14.|
It is announced that the well known firm of
A. T. Stewart & Co . , hive determined to dis
continue their dry goods and manufacturing
business , tnd tha t.they offer for sale their
entire stock of merchandise and all their mill
properties. The announcement will cause
general surprise in the '•■ mercantile ' world, al
though it has been known for some time that
the sales of the firm were not as large as
when Mr. Stewart was at the head of the
house which he founded. Sir. Henry Hilton
apd William Libby, who constitute the firm,
refused this evening to speak relative to the
announcement. .• Since the. death of A. T.
Stewart the business of the house has accord
ing to the assertions of others in the trade,
been • • '.'•:':': j --.. ' "
" STEADILY CONTRACTED. -•' . - ■
The house first practically withdrew 4 from
the jobbing business, then' from the import
ing, and almost entirely from the wholesale
business. ' For several weeks there have been
many rumors afloat concerning it, principally
to the effect that it was going out ©f busi
ness, and that it had been a large borrower of
money— an expediency that was never resorted
to while A. T. Stewart lived. The best infor
mation obtainable this evening, in default of
any from Messrs. Hilton and Libby, was to
the effect that when Mr. Stewart died there
was at least $20,000,000 in the business of the
concern. The house had, on the average,
:■:* | A BALANCE OF AT LEAST $1,000,000 ..."
iv the Merchants' National Bank, of which
Mr. Stewart was a director, and 'about
$500,000 in each of the three other
banks in which the home kept accounts—
the Chemical, and Mechanics' National,
and the National Bank of Commerce.
The aggregate was about $3,500,000. The
stock and property of twelve mills owned by
the concern, the goods in the Chambers street
and Tenth street stores, and the stock in store
houses in Paris and elsewhere, as well as in
transit, made the estimated total mentioned.
Up to ten days of Mr. Stewart's death the
house bought for cash. Ten days before his
death it stopped buying. Hence it is inferred
that the .business stood worth $22,000,000,
more or less, at the time of Mr. Stewart's
death. Mr. Hilton, soon.after the funeral of
Mr. Stewart, ♦
ASSIGNED TO ÜBS. Btbwaht THE million
% DOLLARS cash ;~
to which she was entitled under the will of
Mr. Stewart for the entire business of A. T.
Stewart & Co. , which" was willed to her ac
cording to the trade. Mr. Hilton announced
his intention of proving that he could surpass
Mr. Stewart in the conduct of the concern.
One of his first steps was to establish a branch
house in Chicago. : - ; This .; was . against
the advice of those, associated with him
In the business. It is generally believed that
this branch has been rim at a loss from the
start. He aleo, it is said, changed the methods
of conducting the business from those estab
lished by Mr. Stewart, in the belief that these
methods would result m an increase of the
business. He openly announced his intention
of building up the traffic of the concern to pro
portions beyond thoss apparently contemplated
by Mr. Stewart. The first intimation of the
CURTAILMENT OF THE BUSINESS OF THE
-j, HOUSE
was when the .wholesale store at Chambers
street and Broadway was discontinued and the
entire business concentrated in the building at
Ninth street and Broadway. From that time
the house has been rapidly going out of the
jobbing business. At about the same time
Mr. Hilton issued his edict against the admis
sion of Jews to the Stewart hotel at
Saratoga, the Grand Union. That action is
said to have resulted in a loss of at
least 50 per cent, of both the J whole
sale and retail trade of the house. During
the last four ' years the house has become,
from one of the largest importers of dry
goods, one of moderate rank. Its largest,
and in fact nearly all of the invoices of foreign
goods, have been simply consigned to them
for sales on account. •• '
A GENTLEMAN WELL KNOWN IN THE Hill
- GOODS TRADE .
said this evening: "The business of A. T.
Stewart & Co., so far as 1 can learn, has
simply shrank and shriveled away." A few
weeks ago the firm offered eight or nine of its
mills for sale. Only one or two, it is said,
were sold. Relative to the rumor that the
concern has been borrowing manoy, tho presi
dent of one of the banks in which it keeps an
account said last evening that the firm had
had some of its paper discounted. How much
he did not know, but ho was of the opinion
thrt it was to the amount of at least $1,000,
-000. It is generally reported" - that
the amount is between $2,000,000. and
$3,000,000. So far as can be learned,
THE FAI'EIt OF THE FIRM
has not been sold or discounted through the
medium of note-brokers. It is asserted in the
trade, however, that the paper discounted by
the depositing banks of the firm bears the in
dorsement of Mrs. Stewart. That the firm
has borrowed any money has attracted atten
tion, as it was the practice of Mr. Stewart to
buy for cash. ' Of late, it is said, the firm has
purchased not only «d. the customary thirty
days' time, but had its bills dated ahead. A
gentleman who since 1876 has been intimately
connected - with the afiairs 'of the Stewart
estate, but not directly with the business of
A. T. Btewart & Co., said: "This notice is a
surprise to me, and the only explanation
which I can give of it is that Judge Hilton
and Mr. Llbby
.••--•■•. -. BOTH HAVE MONET ENOUGH,
and do not care to be longer burdened by the
responsibility and care of details of £itch a
vast business. Mr. Libby is a very large own
er of UD-town real estate, and, aside from
much real estate which Judge Hilton holds,
I believe he owns the mills. The property of
fered I for sale consists of the ' two stores in
this city. There are three carpet and woolen
mills at Glenham, which are still running;
two mills at Leeds, Greene county, one each at
StujVesant, Columbia county; Utica, Wash
ington Mills, Little Falls, Woodstock, Vt.,
Holyoke, Mass., and Franklin, N. J. The
down-town store has been ftfr sale and for rent
for nearly four years, the price asked for it, I
believe, being $2,000,000, and the rent asked
$225,000 a year. •-. „ W .- -
• THE VALUE OF THE IT-TOWN STORE
is about the same. The houseTias branches
at Chicago, Manchester, Paris, Lyons, and
Berlin. n
An old man who had been In the empioy of
Mr. Stewart since before the war, and who is
still in the employ of the firm, said: . "In Mr.
Stewart's time about 1,000 men were employ
ed in the down-town store, 3,000 up-town, and
in the mills all over 10,000. The business has
decreased steadily since Mr. Stewart's death.
Tne old clock stopped never to go again, sure
enough, when Mr. Stewart died. The reduc
tion in the workiocr force began before there
was any decrease in business, and when busi
ness fell off the men fell off all the faster.
The big black eye that the house got, how
ever, was
IN THE HEBKEW BUSINESS.
I remember in the old days the Scligman
Bros, almost every day dropped in as they
were on their way up home from down town.
Mr. Stewart always received them most cor
dially. They were among his most intimate
business friends. In an open letter at the
time the Jews were excluded from the Sara
toga hotel, Mr. Seligman made a prophecy,
giving Judge Hilton live years to dry up the
business. The five years will not be up for
two months yet. The Hebrew trade, which
had been large in Mr.. -Stewart's ? time,
dropped off almost instantly and has never
returned." - r:;...-Pr :;...-P '' .- ■.'■■
in mv. Stewart's time
the business which he did in his two stores
was simply enormous, especially when com
pared with that of oth«r dry goods stores in
the city. The sale 3in the two establishments
are said to have amounted to $203.000,0C0 in
three years, and the income of Mr. Stewart
was the largest in the mercantile world. In
1863 his income was 81,900,000; in 1864,14,
-000.000; in 1865, 1,600,000; in ISC6, $600,000
-an average of about $2,000,000 a year. When
ha was nominated for secretary of the treas
ury he estimated his annual income at $1,000,
-000. The busines of the firm was world
wide.
THERE WAB A FOREIGN BLKEAL'
at Manchester, England, where all English
goods were collected, -examined, packed and
shipped to this city, At Belfast, Ireland, the
firm had a factory where linens were bleached.
At Glasgow there was another bureau for the
collection and shipment here of Scotch goods.
In a magazine at Paris were collected French,
German and East India goods. There was a
woolen house at Berlin and silk warehouses at
Lyons. The . continental business was cen
tered in the Paris bureau, and all the payments
were made there, There were mills in Europe .
engaged in manufacturing for the bouse 0/ A.
T. Stewart & Co., alone, and these were
rivaled by others in this country. There was
a small army of buyers and agents who were
constantly traveling from Paris to Hong
Kong and from Thibet to Peru.

never intended he should have anything to do
with my case, as he : s not my kind of a man,

ning of the trial 1 sent an appeal to the legal
profession of America, and received many re
sponses, but
SCOVILLE INTERCEDED MY LETTEUS,
and thereby elbowed competent counsel of!

perience, he assumed to manage the most im
portant criminal case of the century, and of
course he made a miserable failure of it. Had
my case been well tried there would have been
no conviction. lam co enraged at Scoville
for his jackass way of doing things that 1
would not take a release from imprisonment
if it came through him. Within thirty days
I have paid Scoville $275, besides something
during the trial, which is more than his al
leged services arc worth. In an inter
view Tuesday 1 told him never to
mention my name or come into my presence
under any circumstance. He has tried to
make himself specially busy about my book,
which will be put on the market in a few days,
as he sees large money in that. He would
not care if I was hung to-movow if he could
GET HOLD OF MY BOOK.
I hereby notify the public and the Scoville s
that if I had a million dollars in - bank the'
Scovilfes would not get one dollar of it. I
take no stock in my relatives anyway. Had
they all died twenty-five years ago it would
have been a godsend to me. My father ran
me into that sticking Ocelda Community
when a boy, and Scoville married me off in a
mean, dirty way, on ten hours' notice, in 1867,
to a poor, uneducated girl, without position
or friends.
1 DID NOT NEED A WIFE L
any more than a dog needs two tails, 1 had
no means to take care of one. It caused us
both great trouble, and of course resulted in
a divorce.'- Scoville's excuse was that I had
slept with the rIiI. Admitting the fact it
was none of his business, as I was not the
first man. Scoville kcew that I had no means
to care for a wife, but he did not care so long
as he could injure me. We were both sleep
ing at his bouse, at the time, and
that is the way it. happened. The Hon.
Charles H. Reed Las the entire charge of my
case in my bane, and he will be privately as
sisted by two of the ablest members of the

"The Williams farm we sold for $60,000, after
a few insertions in the Times, the purchaser
having first seen the advertisement in that

medium is equivalent to 'four aces with

something a trifle obscure to persons un
