A Brief Sketch of Patron's
Career— He Wins Easily
George B. Clason's Great Dic
tator Colt, St. Paul, as
The Minnesota Breeders to
Meet This Week to Try
Ollie Drake, Mr. Abbey's
Three-Year-Old Colt, Ar
rives in St. Paul.
OW, Patron is un
_ loubtedly the fastest
.ni«l most reliable trot
ter on the turf, and
although his record is
not as low as that of
Maud S or Jay-Eye-
See, it is admitted by
horsemen that he has
-something more than
a -good chance of
equaling or excelling
the performances of
these celebrated trot
ters. When he ap
peared in St. Paul at
the races in July he
attracted a great deal
of attention, and all our owners and
breeders were very deeply impressed
with his evident capacity to trot very
fast. So deep was this impression sev
eral engagements were made at once to
send a number of mares down to Cleve
land to he bred to him. He is a horse
that seems to be coming better and better
all the time. If, in his subsequent races,
he has not lowered hisrerord.it is solely
due to the fact that there was nothing
in the race that compelled him to trot
fast. In his trot at Hartford last
Wednesday in the $10,000 stake race he
trotted against Prince Wilkes and four
other horses, and won in three straight,
easy heats in 2:17%", 2:17 and 2:18. This
was but little better than an exercising
gait for him, and he had to be taken
back on the home-stretch and jogged
home to avoid distancing the whole
field. To show how deep an impression
this young stallion made on one horse
man, it may be mentioned that William
L. McGrath, of St. Paul, went down to
Muscatine, 10., and bought three young
sters by Patronage, a full brother of
Patron. Mr. McGrath says Patronage
is a picture of his fast brother, and is a
large, nice, well-built horse. In com
pliance with the wishes of a number of
horsemen, the following description of
this remarkable horse is given:
Patron is now the years old and was bred
in Kentucky. That he should be a wonder
fully fast and precocious trotter is not strange
when the performances iv that line of his
ancestors are considered. His sire. Pan
coast, has a record of 2:21*4. and his grand
sire. Woodford Mambrino, made a record ot
2:211"! when he was sixteen years old. and
with very little training. The sire of Wood
ford Mambrino was Mambrino chief, the
horse that got Lady Thome, whose mile in
2:18*4 wasa wonderful performance at the
time she was on the turf. in the maternal
live the speed inheritance of Patron is no less
marked, his dam being a full sister to the
famous filly Elvira, that, when a four-year
old, trottea in 2:18„, making what was then
the best record for a horse of her age. al
though a four-year-old has since trotted in
2:10. The dam of Patron was at two years
old as fast as her afterward
but being put to breeding her speed was never
developed. She was sired by Cuvler, a son
of Rysdyk's Hambletonian. the greatest trot
ting sire the world has ever known.
When Patron was a vearliuir he was pur
chased for $800 by a Canadian who had a
fancy for trotters, aud was enjoying a pleas
ure trip through the blue grass region of
Kentucky. At that time the sire of Patron
was not as famous as he is now, and his colts
consequently went cheap. Patron was left
in Kentucky to be developed by G. J. Fuller,
a well known trainer, who has eversince had
charge of him. As a two-year-old he won a
race for horses of his age, "making a record of
2:42'::. The following spring his speed had
greatly increased, and under Fuller's careful
tutelage he soon developed into the fastest
three-year-old that had ever been seen in
Kentucky, and in the fall of 1885, at Lex
ington, Ky., he trotted the best race ever
placed to the credit of a three-year-old, beat
ing Silverone and Granby in 2:20%, 2:25
and 2:19%. The third heat equaled the best
time previously made by a three-year-old, the
California filly, Hinda Rose, having trotted a
mile in 2:l')i*2 against time, but Patron's
third mile in that time, his first heat in
2:20*&, and the fact that this work was done
in a race against other horses made his per
formance by far the best.
He appeared but twice in 1886. having in
jured himself early in the season by being
cast in his stall. Last fall C. F. Emery, of
Cleveland, 0.. purchased a half interest in
Patron for $12,500, with the intention of
trotting him this season in an effort to give
him the fastest stallion record and then
place him in the stud. In his first race this
summer Patron was not in shape, and was
beaten, but the following week he defeated
Arab and several other noted horses in fast
time over a slow track. He then went to De
troit, where he won his race with ease, mak
ing a record of 2:16 in the third heat, this
being the fastest time ever made by a five- -
year-old stallion. The result of this race was
that a special race was made between Patron
and Harry Wilkes, the latter having a record
of 2:13",2, to be trotted at Cleveland the fol
lowing week. Harry Wilkes was a great fav
orite in the betting, but Patron defeated him
easily, and in the third heat trotted the mile
in .2:14*4, being so far ahead .ot his
opponent at the head of the homestretch
that Fuller allowed his horse to come home
at ease, absolutely jogging under the wire.
This record of 2:l4*«i placed Patron in the
very front rank of stallions, his time having
been beaten but by two other entire horses—
Maxey Cobb, 2:1314, and Phallas, 2:13%.
Said of George B. Clason.
George B. Clason, of the Milwaukee
& St. Paul road, has considerable of a
reputation among horemen, and he
owns quite a number *of good trotters
to-day. The Turf, Field and Farm has
the following to say in regard to Mr.
Clason and his young Dictator colt, St.
George B. Clason used to be a regular vis
itor to Kentucky in the fall, but of late he has
not shown up at Lexington when the trotters
were scoring for the word. His duties as an
officer of the Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad
have probably kept him at home. Mr. Cla
son owns a stallion which he has named St.
Paul. He is five years old and was got by
Dictator, out of Floretta, by Milwaukee, son
of Hambletonian; second dam Mary Borden,
by Hobkirk's Sir Henry, Jr. Mary Borden
was a long-distance mare, and her grandson
has inherited much of her stoutness. We
hope that St. Paul will trot as fast as any son
of Dictator has trotted, and that he will
prove a source of pleasure and profit to Mr
The Minnesota Breeders.
This week the breeders of Minnesota
will meet at the state fair grounds to
try conclusions with each other as to
the speed of their young stock. There
is a general feeling of satisfaction that
M. T. Grattan is to be the starting
judge. He is a horseman, knows the
rules by which the races are to be gov
erned and is believed to have nerve
enough and honesty enough to do his
duty and see that the races are conducted
as they ought to be. So far as the stock is
concerned it probably comprises, as a
whole, the best lot ever gotten together,
and there is reason to believe that they
will all be brought to the post in better
condition than at any previous trial.
There are certainly some very excellent
youngsters that show a good amount of
speed. It looks as though the meeting
would be a good one.
Tnrns Out a Pacer.
Aleck, the three-year-old entered in
the stake race for Minnesota-bred colts
to be trotted the coming state fair, has
within the past three weeks changed
his gait from trotting to pacing, which
necessitates. his withdrawal from this
stake. He promises to be a very fast
pacer, having lately been driven a
quarter in 39 seconds, a half in 1:20 and
lull mile in 2:48 with ease. He was
broken and developed thus far by C. Q.
Weeks, about May 1 being the first time
he was ever hitched. «.
Local Horse Notes.
F. J). Abbey has received his three-vearold
stallion colt, Ollie Drake, and has him at his
stables on Sixth street. He is a handsome
bay, and is possessed of a good deal of speed.*
Just previous- — his being sent here he - was
entered in several races and received forfeit.
He will be sent to Mr. . Smith's stables in
Hastings, where he will serve a few mares,
and in the spring he will take a little fast
work and will probably enter some of the
races. He is by Joe "Gavin, by Messenger
Durae, by Hambletonian, dam by, Louis Ba
polean, by Volunteer.
The first meeting of the Cass County Stock
and Trotting association will be held at Cas
selton, Dak., Sept. 27 and 158, and tho entry
list closes on Sept. 13." The card for the open
ing day consists of the 2:40 trotting class,the
2:30 pacing class and a running race, half
mile heats, two ln three. On the second day
there will be the three-minute class, the free
for-all trot and a running race, mile heats.
The trotting and pacing purses are from S2OO
to $300 cash, and the. running purses $100
and $150 respectively. Casselton has a good
half-mile track, with good stables and water
The last foal on George W. Sherwood's farm
made its appearance last week. It is by Bay
onet, dam Authoress by Referee, second dam
by Old Mack.
On Aug. 27, Robert Bonner drove Maud S
on his three-quarters of a mile track, on his
farm, the fastest mile that has ever been
made to wagon. The first half was made in
1:084 and the last half in 1^4%, making
the mile in 12:13*4. Mr. Bonner urged the
mare only in the last half, when she made
the marvelous time of l:o4?i.'* Mr. Bonner
weighs thirty pounds over the regulation. He
says the world has never seen the equal of
Maud S, and that she is a better mare to-day
than she ever was before.
Lady Carr. by American Clay, dam of Am
bassador. 2:21 U, is likely bo appear in the
next annual list of great brood mares, as her
four-year-old colt, Alcondre, by Alcyone, was
a good second in 2:25*,2, and it is "stated he
trotted a trial in 2:28. It looks as if Susie S,
by Hylas. is liable to beat the three-year-old
record, 2:19"&. In her recent attempt to do
so she trotted to the three-quarter pole in"
1:43, but she lost her chauce in a bad break.
Had she kept up the clip she would have
reached the wire in 2:17",*j.
Rowena, 2:2-I*4, by George Wilkes, has a
filly foal by Sorrento, "son ot Woodford Mam
brino. Rowena will be bred to Psneoast, as
will also Mattie Graham S-.aii'i by Harrold.
The last named is owned by J. H. Shults, the
owner of Paneoast, and his rule in regard to
brood mares is mat they shall have a record
of 2:30. ..
Sire Bros., the men who own nnrry Wilkes
and Rosaline Wilkes, have purchased the
pacer Gossip, Jr., 2:14, by Gossip, dam by
Monmouth Eclipse. Last year Gossip, Jr.,
was a star pacer, but he went amiss. Now
that Sire Bros, own him he will be handled
by Frank Van Ness.
Lot Slocnm, that recently made a record of
2:20 in California, is the eighth Electioneer
to enter the 2:20 list, thus placing his sire on
an equality with George Wilkes in the matter
of 2*20 trotters. His dam is by Mohawk
Chief, and it is asserted that he can trot

The proposed match between Patron and
Clingstone has fallen through.
, PLAYED OUT. :
Collapse of the Room in Pennsyl
vania Oil Wells.
Pittsburg, Sept. 3.—-In a few days
the Pennsylvania oil fields will be vir
tually idle. The producers are bank
rupt, and will shut off production as a
last and desperate chance of relief. The
regions that have produced millions
upon millions of dollars worth of pe
troleum are little better off than if the
golden fluid had never been discovered.
Sheriff's sales are the most conspicuous
signs everywhere. Splendid residences
that were built by^» the lucky
oil seekers in the palmy days
before '85,. are the only in
dications that prosperity once abided
with the oil producer. Even those are
sadly out of repair, and the once for
tunate owner, who found the roomy man
sion too small for his wealth, now dis
covers that he has a white elephant
on his hands and is content to occupy
two or three rooms of the dwelling, let
ting out the remainder to lodgers. Men
who formerly had an income of $25, $100
and 3200 a day from their wells now get
a laborer's wages. Many of the large
producers are running their wells at a
loss. Hundreds of drillers, tool-dress
ers, pumpers and carpenters are out of
work, because almost no new wells are
going down, and those now in opera
tion are worked in the most economical
manner possible. Wages have not been
so low since oil was discovered. If this
depression continues for another six
months those still engaged in the oil
businsss will quit it, as many hundreds
have already done. Speculation, too, is
paralyzed. Speculators have learned
by sad experience that, owing to-the ex
cessive storage charges, they must clear
25 per cent, on their trades to come out
even. With the operator and driller,
they are engaging in other pursuits.
The magnificent Western Pennsylvania
exchanges, erected in the halcyon days
of "dollar" oil, are now little attended,
and in the vast emptiness the occasional
bidder is startled at the sound of his
own voice. The consumer for years has
been paying to the Standard Oil com
pany for refined oil one-third more than
it would cost if the production and man
ufacture of oil followed natural laws.
The consumer has really enriched the
great oil monopoly more than the pro
ducer, but because the cost has been
lightly laid upon him individually, he
does not feel it. A few cents a week
from each consumer makes millions of
dollars for the Standard. With no
excuse whatever, the Standard in
1878 put up the price of re
fined oil from 16 to 32 cents a
gallon, and in ISSO it raised the
price from 8 to 12 cents. In both in
stances the purchasing price of the crude
oil remained the same. The Standard
buys at its own price and sells at its
own price. Other commodities are
"cornered" occasionally, but oil is in a
chronic state of "corner." Should the
Standard desire there is nothing to pre
vent its putting the price of oil up to 50
cents a gallon for at least six months, as
it would be that time before competition
could be developed to cut down the
price. It rules the home and foreign
trade alike. The Russian companies,
about which so much has lately
been written, will not be serious com
petitors of the American monopoly for
several years, even supposing that the
quality of the oil is equal to the Penn
sylvania product, as the cost of produc
tion and transportation in Russia by
present methods is too great to make
the business in that country profitable.
Washington, Sept. 3.—There is a
good deal of stir over the recent action
of the second comptroller about the
shortage in the payments of accounts.
Among those short in accounts are Pay
master Daniel MeClure, §338.43, which
he claims to have turned over to his suc
cessor, but lost the receipt; Paymaster
Bash, $7,350, stolen from him; Pay
master Candee, $1,187, paid to wrong
man; Paymaster William Smith, $3,851,
which he paid to witnesses in the Whit
taker trial; Paymaster Alexander Sharp,
$754, and many smaller accounts with
other officers. Capt. George Mitchell
has filed a claim for additional longevity
pay for the time covered by his service
in the volunteer army. If allowed it
will open the doors to millions of dollars
more of similar claims.

The New American Party.
Washington, Sept. 3.— is proposed
to establish in New York city a weekly
newspaper to explain and advocate the
principles and aims of the new Ameri
can party. The reticence of the leaders
in the party movement is puzzling to
the politicians, who are curious to
learn all its purpose, that they may be
able to speculate upon the problem as
to whether the American party will
draw greater membership from the
Republican or Democratic parties. It

St. Louis Traders Indignant at the
Manner in "Which They Aro
St. Louis, Sept. ">.— Chicago quo
tations were received at the "Merchants'
Exchange here on the opening of busi
ness this morning, and when it was as
certained that the telegraph wires were
not at fault, much comment and inquiry
was excited. Later a dispatch came
from A. M. Wright, of the Chicago
board, to President Gainie, saying, "We
temporarily suspended your quotations
to observe results on Western and
Southwestern bucket shops.". This was
regarded as saying that the St. Louis
exchange was furnishing these bucket
shops with Chicago quotations, and it
aroused a good deal of indignation and
caused much hard talk. The suspen
sion had very little effect on the busi
ness of the board, however, as private
messages immediately took the place of
public dispatches and there was scarcely
a lull in trade. It is said that
the exchange will take no action in the
matter, but maintain a dignified silence
and will neither ask for an explanation
nor for a renewal of the quotations.
C*_sv___tra>, 0., Sept. The final
hearing in the injunction case of W. J.
Cain, a broker, against the Western
Union Telegraph company, asking "for
an order restraining the company from
removing a telegraph ticker from Cain's
oftice, was heard by Judge Stone, of the
common pleas court, this morning. It
was decided that the Western Union
was not-the proper defendant in the
case, the petition for an injunction was
dismissed and the temporary restraining
order was dissolved. Judge Stone held
that the Chicago board of trade was the
proper defendant and that the Western
Union simply acted as a carrier.

Indianapolis, Sept. 3.—A railroad

of young men went out to the scene of

these odd Trousers in all departments to supply the demand.
