Commodore Kittson's Rataplan.
The great race won by Commodore Kittson's
Rataplan still continues to be the talk among the
korßemen. The following is the account given of
. the race by Wilkes' Spirit of the Times:
Rataplan was the first to show, and did a
Blow canter past the stand and
around to the starting point. He moved nicely,
and, from what we could see of him, looked
quite advanced on his Jerome park condition.
Sandoval looked more fit than we ever remem
ber having seen him. Blast came out with Lewis
:;p, and Mr. Scott's gelding Simoon leading him.
lilait is a very fine looking colt and a clever
mover. Pampero looked the thorough little
(jentletcnn, while Vocalic, with Spellman up,
moved free and well. Endymion was closely
scanned. He is a horse of great beauty, a whole
colored bay, and a charming mover. Knight of
Slierilie looked light and delicate. Tacoma, a
big, plain, but substantial looking colt, made his
Selr.it, and was favorably criticised. St. Sauveur
iras very closely observed. Certainly, there was
tothing in the appearance of the colt to justly
Ihe fears of his not being it, as he moved easily
»ud his coat had a good glow.
There was a little delay at the post, and when
Ihi.-y got oil Mike Donohue shot away with John
1!.. but as they passed the stand at the end of
three furlongs Endymion was in the lead, with
Simoon second, he evidently cutting out work
for Blast. Then came Knight of Ellerslie and
Economy ; Rataplan was next to last. There
ivas no change as they swept around the turn,
Endymion still led, but on the outside Rataplan
was stealing up like a shadow. As they entered
the backstretch his pale jacket could be seen
going through the field at every stride, but some
low the crowd did not seem to notice • him, and
relied itself hoarse over Endymion, who held the
lead when the starting point of the race had been
reached. Then a man was seen to rush out from
ihe rails, and the next instant Rataplan was sec
end. The pace now improved. There was only
three nrlongs to go. Endymion was still lead-
Ing, but as they came into the stretch Rataplan
passed him. Endymion fell back, and a yell
tang out as St, Sauveur and Blast were seen to
dash out in pursuit. By dint of hard riding they
nearly got to Rataplan, but Sheridan had only to
give him his head andtheErdenheim colt dashed
away, winning by three lengths. St. Sauveur
second, half a length in front of Blast, Vocalic
fourth, Endymion fifth. '.■-■; •
"Rataplan," exclaimed each one as he looked
into his neighbor's face. It was plain they con
sidered it the victory of an outsider.' It was plain
klso, that his backers were not of the demonstra
live element, as, while there was a dense crowd
lit the paddock, they received the winner with a
Jtare of curiosity rather than the outburst of ap
plause which usually is accorded a popular horse.
The winner was unmarked and not a bit the worse
for the journey. An "all right," Sheridan was
down, the horse was led away, and the great race
was over. St. Sauveur was a rather tired horse,
as was Blast.
To find Lee and get his ideas as to the winner
he had trained so perfectly for the great race was
cur next labor.
"I hope you was on, 'Mr. Vigilant,"was his re
mark as we congratulated him.
"Oh, tho Major forwomedme; lie was quite
"He had reason to be Rataplan did very well
in his work."
"Some say his advantage in the weights did
"Yes: but he can put up weight with any of
them, such a great, big muscled colt. It's all
tver now, and there's no harm in my telling you
that in the heavy track —you know how heavy
)he track was Sunday? ran his mile in 1 :48,
and the mile and a half in 2:42, with shoes and
plenty of weight up. He ain't a Jmiller. Speed
Isn't his forte, but he can stay with any of them.
I felt that if the first half of the race wasn't so
fast as to carry him off his feet, he'd win. I told
Sheridan to lay easy and not. to make his run un
til he got on the lackstretch. I took my place
there, and when thej pm^ed me I ran out and
called out to Sheridan to 'go on.' The colt was
going easy, and when I saw him dash away I felt
"Then the race was run to suit you?"
"Just. I tell you, when I looked at my watch
and saw the first three-quarters was slow it made
me feel good."
Thus ended the great emporium. As a spec
acle and for sensational interest it was the event
)f the meeting.
What ix TJiought of the Midway Sale.
As might have been expected the Midway sale
p attracting a good deal of attention. The stock
was so fine, and altogether, the sale was so good,
considering it was the first one in this state, and
Shot we are so far from eastern purchasers and
(astern markets, that after all there is little occa
sion for surprise that it should cause remark.
Below will be found an exceedingly interesting
communication from a gentleman well known in
this community and one whose opinion is valua
ble in regard to the breeding of horses:
To the Turf Editor of the Globe:
Elmira, June 24, 1884.— is with interest
that I read the list of stock sold, and the names
of the buyers thereof, at the Midway sale, espe
cially the stock of Commodore Kittson, with
which lam the most familiar. The three year
old gelding Edmund Rice, sold to Mr. Miller, of
Burlington, lowa, is the making of a valuable
horse, and his purchaser showed good judgment
in his selection. The colt was foaled the day
the Hon. Edmund Rice was elected mayor of St.
Paul, and this circumstance, together with its
high breeding, caused the writer to suggest the
name to Commodore Kittson, by whom it was
The purchases of Mr. McGrath, of St. Paul,
are good selections for his purposes, being full
of the blood that will nick well with the high
breeding of his stallion Theseus. He by Bel
mont, dam by Alexander's Abdallah, and Belle
Blackwood, by Blackwood, are worthy matrons
lor any breeding farm. That Mr. McGrath was
enabled to obtain two such animals for the in
significant sum of 8540, is evidence that good for
tune abides with him. Along with his enterprise,
he has encountered many difficulties in establish
ing himself as a breeder of fine horses, and for
his plucky determination, he deserves full suc
The purchases of Mr. E. A. Parker, of Minne
apolis, are among the best selections made at the
Bale. The filly by Revenue was as fine as I ever
saw when a suckling, and the blood of Smuggler,
combined with that of old Pocahontas and Ethan
Allen, that fills the veins of Revenue, justifies
confidence that she will develop a trotter. In the
colt by Blackwood, out of Zalis, by Peacemaker,
dam by the American Star. I consider Mr.
Parker has a sure thing for his money. The
Writer had the privilege of naming this colt, and
what else could it be but Starwood? These two
well bred and promising youngsters being in the
hands of a practical driver and horseman like Mr.
Parker, their future development will be watched
with interest. He is a critical judge of such
goods, and has no use for poor ones.
I desire to offer my congratulations to Messrs.
Kittson, DeGraffe and Sherwood, on the com
plete success of their first public sale of trotters,
the first ever held west and north of Milwaukee.
These gentlemen are pioneers in an . industry of
zrcat importance to Minnesota, one.that cannot
be over estimated, and is destined to assume
mammoth proportions in the near future, and in
the matter of success nothing is too good for
■ Com. Kittson's three year old colt. Rataplan,
precipitated a Waterloo surprise on the book
maker's and betters at Sheepshead Bay on
Thursday last. The colt did not enter into their
calculations as a possible winner, for the reason
they knew nothing about him. The long odds of
six to one that were posted against him on ac
count of the great merit of several other entries
were quietly taken to a large amount by those
in the confidence of Manager Hubbard, and it is
reported that the pockets of the Erdenhiem
stable boys are now stuffed with greenbacks The
colt is engaged for all the principal events for
the remainder of the season, and consequent of
the slashing manner he cut down the favorites
and captured the rich Emporium stakes, he now
has a place first in the betting, for his future en
• gagements. The value of the stakes to the
winner was $8,727.50. , -■ - • *Zr
i After the victory of Rataplan - the bookmakers
placed detss&mw w.««b $)lw K^gn Btrt>j jj
evidently determined that Maj.! Hnbbard Should
not again surprise, them with a dark one, and it
is said they are wiso in bo doing, for ' there' are
others there that require watching, else the vic
tories of Unique, St. Paul and Rataplan will -be
reipeoUd to their discomfiture. This being the
second year only, of the Klttßon stable on * the
turf, a»d having thus eotly captured three of the
principal stakes from fields filled with' the best
colts of the year, places it in. an elevated position
equal in importance to that of the Lorillards and
tho Dwycri, and with a reputation in point lof
honor equal to any known to the turf, which
should be, as it undoubtedly is, cause of special
gratification and pride to all Minnesotians. '
In noting the published reports of the - pro
gress of stock breeding in Minnesota, the writer
is much gratified to learn that the breeders of
fine horses arc meeting with a deserved success,
and to the large number with whom he is per
sonally acquainted, it will go without saying that
he is very glad of if. r
Also to the manager of the GLOBE.on its eleva

newspapers of the country, I proffer congratula
The southern Minnesota department ef the
Globe has from timo to time since its organlca-
ion last spring, notioed tho operations of the
Seuthern Minnesota Live Stock and Pair associa
tion at Mankato. The organization comprises
men of means and high standing in their com
munity, and they have set about business in a
business like way.. Everything had to be creat
ed, and like sensible gentlemen they determined
to have everything first class. •
Suitable grounds haAing been leased early in
the spring work was begun upon the track as
as soon as the frost would permit. The gronnds
are southeast of the city and about one and ona
fourth miles distant from its business center.
The track, wbich is a half mile one, is composed
of sand and clay in just the right admixture to
be neither t«,o heavy or too hard
and two hours after a heavy
rain it is fit for work without there being any
danger of the horses slipping. The first stretch
is 600 feet long and the turn seventy feet wide
with an inclination of one inch to the foot from
outside to center. The other turns are each
sixty feet wide, The surface of the ground is
an exact dead level and under drains connecting
with the gutter on the inside of the rail carry off
the water as fast as it may fall so that with the
inclination and this perfect drainage the track
must dry very rapidly. Three sides of the track
are fenced with a tight board fence while the
fourth side is bounded by an elevation known
as Sibley mound and the rear of which is
heavily wooded. A five wire (barbed)
fence will be extended aronnd this and this part
of the ground patrolled. '
The ampitheater will be upon the side of this
mound which adjoins the home stretch, and up
on which elevation twenty thousand people can
have not only a splendid view of the track bnt of
the entire grounds., and at the same time over
look the city. A fine three-story judge's stand
has been constructed, and forty box stalls 12x14
feet square, and with shingle roof, well lighted,
high and well ventilated. As a whole the grounds
are the finest in the state and "visiting horsemen
are sure of a cordial reception and splendid quar

All the conditions that mortals can control have
been arranged to make this meeting a success,
and a success it is bound to be. ;
The Southern Exposition.
The great exposition promises to be the most
remarkable one ever held. It will open at Louis
ville on the 16th of August and continue seventy
one days, closing Oct. 25. The main building of
the exposition will cover thirteen acres of ground,
with a number of annexes of forty acres. One
of the most remarkable features of the exposi
tion will be the exhibition of fine live stock of
all kinds, especially horses.
Kentucky's prominence as the breeding place
of the most superior live stock produced in this
or any other country demands a recognition of
that important interest at the hands of the
southern exposition, and to this end the man
agement proposes" to present a perfect represen
tation of it. The leading turfmen, ' Harner,
Broodhead, Swigert, Chirm & Morgan, Wilson,
Clay, Crabb, Grinnstead, Neech, McFerran,
McDowell, Alexander, Stoner, Ferguson, Withers,
West, Nichols, as well as the great cattle raisers
like the Hamiltons, Moberly, Anderson, Horns
by, Warfield, Williams, and others, will contri
bute their most celebrated specimens of
thoroughbreds; No spot in the universe has
bred such horses as . Kentucky. Ten Broeck,

gamest and grandest looking horse that ever
lived King Ban, the young stranger imported
from Europe for Major Thomas and now attract

the most renowned running horses ever bred,

remarkable runners and trotters of America, will
By this splendid aggregation of fine thorough
bred and trotting horses, it is hoped to afford an
opportunity to the hundreds of thousands of
people, who know but vaguely of this great in
terest, to see for themselves how attention to
breeding produces the greatest results. Many
may object to visiting race courses to see trials
of speed, but there is no person in the land who
will fail to admire the splendid equine speci
mens to be exhibited at the Exposition. As for
the breeders and owners, they necessarily will be
benefited by this admiration, and it is sure to be
followed with good purchase offers for the prog
eny of their celebrated sires. All due attention
will be given by the management to the proper
care and comfort of the stock displayed. -
Col. M. Lewis Clark, president of the Louis
ville Jockey club, who is also a director of the
Exposition company, will give personal direction
to this matter, a fact that assures good treat
ment to all concerned.

[Preston (Minn.) Democrat.
Pursuant to announcement an exhibition race
came off over the Preston track last Saturday
which gave those present an opportunity of see
ing an eighteen-year-old horse trot a mile won
derfully fast. It was a trial for money to beat
2:30, and the exhibition was to have been be
tween M. T. Grattan's Morgan stallion, "Herod"
and n. Knox' fine mare "Hattie V," the latter
however, acted badly and was withdrawn and
Harry Conkey's horse substituted as a running
mate. The first half mile was a beautiful race,
the running mate keeping well along side of the
old monarch who attended strictly to his vcprk
and seemed to realize that he was surprising even
his owner, who was in the sulky. Under the
wire the horses were nearly even and on they
went to the qurter pole where the runner began
to lag. At this point Herod showed an increase
of speed and came down the home stretch like
the wind, yet steady and majastic, and as his
nose went nnder the wire the timer in C. P.
Walter's hand registered 2:20%. The horse was
not urged by his driver, and made the mile with
out a break in perfect ease. Preston track, at
the pole, is eighty-four feet more than a mile;
when this, together with the fact that Mr. G.
drove at least six feet from the pole, is consid
ered, there is no telling what Herod will do on a
fast track. It is the fastest mile ever trotted
over a half-mile track in the state, and the
fastest mile ever trotted by an eighteen-year-old
At the Kalamazoo meeting Fannie Witherspoon
outlasted Edwin Thorne and Phyllis, and won
first money in the open-to-all. The first and sec
ond heats were taken by Thorne in 2:23i£,
2:18 X, and the third, fourth and fifth heats by
Witherspoon in 2:17?£, 2:19 X, 2:22i£. Last fall
the Breeders' Gazette classed Fanny Wither
spoon as one of the disappointments of the turf,
and charged it all to the unreliable four-mile
Wagner blood. We ventured to suggest that the
mare was as true as steel in the hands of Crit
Davis, and remarked that Splan had not placed
himself in accord witfi her temperament. In the
eyes of the Gazette this was rank treason, but
now, we observe with pleasure, our esteemed
Chicago contempoaary talks in a different vein.
It says that Splan has mastered the peculiarities
of Witherspoon, and that her races at Chicago
and Kalamazoo have shown that she is not only
in first-class condition, but that she is faster this
year than ever before. We have always claimed
that she was the best trotter in Commodore Kitt
son's stable, and the most stubborn doubter
doubts no longer. And yet Fannie Witherspoon
has just as much running blood in her to-day as
she had one year ago.
Tho Great Volunteer.
Veritas in Wilkes Spirit of the Time: Feeling
a lively interest in the recent horse show, I was
a frequent visitor to Madison Square garden dur
ing show week. I found light comedy in the
scenes presented by the imitators of cockneydom
and was quite amused by the efforts of som.- of
the npper ten thousands to follow the habits and
fashions of the English aristoracy. Concerning
the trotters and roadsters, with all that pertains
to to them, lam happy to say that everything
was truly American. One of the first horses
which I hastened to visit was the illustrious Vol
unteer. In company with Judge Ingrahara, and
Mr. Guy Miller, of Chester, I took a long look at
him, and as I gazed on the grand old horse, now
in his thirtieto year, I could not help wondering
what son would rise up to repeat his achieve
ments in the stud. Although he has so long
ago passed the prime of his existence, he carries
his years lightly, and were it not for the deep
hollow in his back, he would pass for a horse ten
years younger, The son of "the old sod," his
faithful attendant for years, kindly stripped the
blanket from him, and I saw that his coat was
still bright and cherry red, his eyes full and
prominent, his legs cool and free from puff or
blemish. As I noted these things I remarked to
the groom, "He looks as if he still enjoyed
his meals." "Yes, sur, no mill grinds
his feed yet. Dr. House fixed his teeth
some years ago, and they are still good." Now
a tall, lank, inquisitive down Easter darkens the
door, saying. "Wai, I declar, this is old Vdun
teer. How old is he neowf "Thirty years,"
was the reply. When did he stopservingmares?"
was the next inquiry. On being told that he was
still doing duty, and served a mare a week ago,
he looked incredulous and passed on. Then Mr.
Guy Miller commenced to chat with me abont
the horse as he looked on him with pride.
"There," said he, "is the greatest sire that ever
lived, and the patriot blood inherited from his
dam should never be lost sight of. He shows it
in his high finish and gait. I think the vitality he
shows is most remarkable, and, as a rule, it goes
hand in hand with the power to beget great
speed. Volunteer is ,extremely viserous. 1 bred
seven mares to him in the past three years, and
all produced colts. One of them, now twenty
four years old, has had four colts by him, and
was only four times served. "I suppose you
knew him in his early days?" "Oh, yes, and
when the old PreEbyterian deacon showed him as
a four-year old through the stretches on the
Goshen track I think he was the grandest trotter
I've ever seeni"
Passsing along to the next box I looked at
Volunteer's son, Kearsage, out of Dexter" s dam.
He is is a large and beautifully turned horse,
and, crossed on the right kind of mares, he
ought to get carriage horses as well as trotters.
I next visited Alcantara and his young family.
They were holding quite a levee, and Mr. Davis
kindly led them out one by one for onr inspec

The Largest Crowd of Any Day of the
Meeting—An Interesting 1 Time. ,
Yesterday was the biggest day of all at Red
Rock. Every train and boat brought the people
in by the hundreds, and by 2 o'clock the grounds
were literally crowded. . There j was not near
seating capacity enough to accommodate the im
mense crowd, many hundreds being compelled
to stand during the services. Meetings were go
ing on simultaneously all over the camp. The
morning services were well attended, and we are
assured were very interesting. The Sunday
school services attracted a great deal of atten
tion, being a quarterly review,. conducted by
Mr. J. D. Blake, of Minneapolis. He under
stands Sunday school work well, and his system
of conducting the review work was splendid, be
ing much admired and commented upon.
Dr. C6"bb says that this is the most interesting
meeting they have ever had. It will last until the
fourth of July, and consequently will be the long
est session of any previous, being seventeen
days, and as he said, each day more inter
esting than the one preceding. : On the Fourth
of July there will be a grand temperance demon
stration under the management of the Woman's
Christian Temperance union. An effort will be
made to make this a great event, and if hard
work on the part of the ladies will avail, it surely
will be the grandest day yet.
The Germans were there in full force and the
large tent was well filled to hear Dr. Nast speak.
He will remain all week . and assist in
the . dedication on ." Tuesday of ■ a
portion of the grounds'to the German church.
This will take place at 5 o'clock in the afternoon,
and there will be a large turn out of the German
element. .... .
On Tuesday Dr. Cobb will give a talk on Cali
fornia, giving his experience, in that country, and
how the work is progressing on the Pacific slope.
There will also be the rite of baptism admin
istered on Tuesday.. Wednesday there will be a
grand love feast, and' Dr. Cobb says it is to be a
love feast in all that the term implies. • '.• '
The young peoples' meetings are doing a
grand work, and he thinks that much of the suc
cess of the meetings is due to them.
: t! Rev. J. B. Cribben, of Mason City, la., opened
the afternoon meeting with prayer. Dr. Van Anda
delivered the discourse, and took for his text the
37th verse of the 6th chapter of St.' John : "And
he that cometh tome I will in no wise cast out."
His effort was a line one, and eagerly listened to
by the vast multitude. '.]'. - " •

The Fool Boy and His Pistol.
At about midnight on Saturday Win. Wilson, a
yonng mulatto aged 17, says he went out of the
tenement over a saloon on Jackson street with a
bottle to get some gin and ginger for a Mrs.
Robertson, who was sick. He attempted to enter
a saloon on the same street just as the proprietor
was driving the crowd of bummers out for the
night and was; hustled out wkh them. , Some
words sprung} up between "i! two . white men
and a coon, and a man named "Hank" kicked
and cuffed Wilson. . He tried' to get away and
they followedliim and stoned hlri, whereupon he
drew a revolver and shot low instead of high, to
scare them, . and .lodged a bullet in the leg of
Henry Cummings just below the knee. -. The at
tention of Officer Coll, on • the Jackson street
beat was attracted to the locality by some one's
rapping on a lamp post, but the street was still
and empty of the assailed and assailant. Com
mencing a general hunt he found the revolver in
an alley, it having been ■ thrown I out an upper
window by Wilson, and' demanding and gaining
entrance to the bouse so scared Wilson, whom
. he' found in bed, that he confessed to his doings
as above mentioned, and was taken to the city
hall and locked up. . He claims to be a Califor

Deck Hand Drowned.
..While the steamer St. Paul was coming up the

day with a barge in tow a deck hand, known only
to the captain by the name of "Dutchy," was ac
cidently hit by what is known as a "hog chain,"
and knocked overboard between the steamer and
the barge.' ■ The boat was brought to and ' search
made for him but without avail. Late Saturday
the body was- found floating in the . stream v and
towed in shore at what is known as Frenchman's

The attendance on Saturday evening at the
roller skating rink has been the largest in a
long time, a 9 it was the closing night. All the
principal people of the city were present, especi

skating was lively, and it was kept up without
intermission, although the night was warm. All
felt sorry that the place in which they had pass
ed such pleasant hours was being closed for the
summer. The building will be put in the very
best condition for the fall and winter season, as
it requires plastering and other improvements.
The fall season will commence on the Ist of Sep
tember, and should the weather be cool, probably
before that time.
Mr. Gunkle, manager of the Stillwater base
ball club, returned yesterday morning from a fly
ing trip east, where he went in search of players
for the club. At Chicago he got Conners. who
played right field on Saturday in the game
against Milwaukee. From Chicago he went to
Pittsburg, Columbns and St. Louis where he se
cured Peters, captain of the Alleghany Rescues,
of that city. Peters is a well known player, and
was here as short-stop with the Chicagos iv 1876.
In 1878 he was captain of the Milwaukee Profes
sionals. Since that time he has been connected
with the Alleghenies of St. Louis and the Spring
fields. He will captain the Stillwater clnb.
With such management, and a captain that
knows any point in a game that will be to the

success of our club. We are not at the foot of

A train, consisting of a baggage car, a passen

apolis yesterday from the north, and being
switched upon the track of the Chicago, Milwau
kee & St. Paul railway, arrived in St. Paul about
six in the afternoon, and after a few moments de
lay, moved eastward. This train contained a
more novel load than that of the ordinary circus
or menagerie, having on board sixty Vild Crow
Indians of all sexes and ages
and the cloth and poles and other necessaries for
the spreading of quite a capacious canvas. It was
learned by the Globe representative that this body

been hired and outfitted by some enterprising
showman to give a series of exhibitions in the

London, June 29.—At a meeting yesterday of
the conference of the Egyptian question, Gran
ville briefly stated the financial proposals to be
considered. The conference then adjourned to
allow the finance experts to examine the .propo
sals. The date of the next meeting was not fixed.
The Observer believes the proposals have in view
a reduction of interest on the unified 4 per cent.
debt, and privileged debt, each to one-half the
present rates. The domain loans at 5 per oent.
and the Daira Saned loans at 4 to 5 percent, are
to be left as at present. If the revenues are in
sufficient to pay the Daira interest, the Egyp
tian treasury is to be called upon to make up the
amount less one-half per cent. The sinking
funds belonging to the privileged and unified
debts are to be suspended. The interest Egypt
paid on the Suez canal shares, held by England,
is to be deducted from one-half to three-fourths

of those using them. I have uniformly found DR. PRICE'S CREAM
BAKING POWDER the best in all Viese respects.
I have just made another examination of the "Royal," "Andrews'

formerly. DR, PRICE'S CREAM is free from AMMONIA, while
the "Royal" and "Andrews' Pearl" both contain Ammonia. The
final reaction of "Dr. PRICE'S CREAM" is acid, while the "Royal"
and "Pearl" give an ALKALINE reaction, which LEADS to DYS
PEPSIA. Price's fs a pure, clean and elegant proportion of Cream
of Tartar and Bicarbonate of Soda, and there does "in nowise entei
into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoeverjworketh abomi
nation, or maketh a lie."
In raising power "Price's" stands at the head.

Midland morning express ran at an uncontroll

near this city. A corner of the smoking car struck
the upright girders throwing it from the track.

100 feet and .the Washington and New York
sleeping cars fell through the opening into ten
feet of water and gradually sank. Conductor
King was thrown' into the river and although he
had two ribs broken he swam to

through the windows. Most of the
passengers were taken out through holes cut in
the ventilators on the top of the cars, to which

forty passengers in the sleepers and were all
saved. After the water had covered the top of

months old child through a window, and held it
