Midway and Jtiehball.
The Turf, Field and Farm of the 18th
inst., has the following in regard to Com
modore Kittscn and some of his stock:
Commodore Kittson, Mr. D. W. Wood
mansee and Major Hubb&rd were i* the
city last week, and, with Mr. Bonner, they
devoted several hoars to Litlle Brown Jmjj.
They expressed great delight over the
marked improvement in the condition of
the renowned pacer. Tha health of the
commodore is not first rate, and he will
spend the Dalance of the winter in the
A. week or two ago there appeared a
halfway challenge from the owner of Rich
ball, the pacer, offering to pace him
against any horse in the world. It seems
to have been taken for granted that the
challenge was intended for Johnien, now
called Midway, that Commodore Kittson
purchased last fall. The com
modore is not in ; th* habit of
matching his horses for contests for
speed in any other way that entering them
in the regular circuits for purses in the
ordinary form, and as he is act now is It.
Paul, he cannot be interrogated here npoa
this subject. We find, however, in the
Turf, Field and Farm, of the same date that
contains the above selection, the follow
er '&?$/.
No challeage has been put oat in behalf
of Johnson; the record shows this herse to
be the fatest pacer ia the world; bat
should the owners of Richball be burning
for a match when they come north with
their horse, they will be accommodated,
provided that all goes well and they do
not want a first mortgage on the entire
This little item sounds very much like
the manner and form in whioh Dan Wood
mansee would speak in regard to such a
matter. It is quite a long time between
the present and the time when the
season . will open, and the
racing begin. Mr. Woodmansae
is to judicious, and has had too much ax
perience with horses to undertake to ad
vise making a match nor/, to be paoad in
five or six months hence. It would be un
wise to enter now into such an engage
ment. There is plenty of time between
the present and the summer meetings to
match these two great horses, if it should
be deemed best to bring them together in
this way. Both are being properly cared
for and they will, in all probability, be
brought oat in the spring, in (good form
for the work that is expected from them.
If at that time the "owners of Richbs.ll
are burning for s match" they may be ao-
Cammodate<?. The second itom above
quoted from the Turf, Field and Farm says
"they will be accommodated." As Com
modore Kittson andMr.Woodmanseewsro
both in New York about the time the Turf
made this statemant it is reasonable to
believe that the partiss had such a conver
sation, upon tke challenge of tho owners
of Hichball, with the editors of the Turf,
as warranted the latter in stating in the
columns of the Turf that "they will be ac
commodated-." Both of these animals are
very fast, and the record of the pacing last
season indicates that they should stand at
the head of the list of pacers. No doubt
a contest between them would oall out a
very lively crowd of people.
Morse, Notes from Northfieid.
A gentleman from Northfieid who is wall
informed in regard to horsa stock in that
vicinity, send 3 the Globe the following
horse notes:
F. J. Lord, tho popular druggist of this
city, has a good one in his bay oolt. Frank
■ays that he is fast enough now to break
the ordinance if he cuts him loose.
John Schwartz is using his trotting mare,
"Maid of Darkness," on the road. His
colt from this mare, sired by Port Martin's
Almont, a yearling, is very prcmisisg.
D. L. Howe, the banker, farmer and
breeder, has his two oolts by Lyndale Mes
senger, dam by Mambrine Chief, in train
ing at Northfieid. From their breeding
and general appearance they promise
Speaking about oolts, allow me to say
that Major Strait, M.0., from the Third
congressional district, has two colts, wean
lings, by Commodore Kittson's Blaokwood,
Jr., out ot the major's fast pole team, that
will bear inspection.
Charley Story has a sorrel gelding that
he is giving road work this winter, pre
paratory to enteriag the summer cirenit.
He, (the colt,^ is a little rattle headed at
present, but he expects to get him level
headed before the season is over. He is a
dark one boys, look out.
Last but not least is the bay filly
owned by O. S. Brown. Now she is what
Turner would call a charmer, and will un
doubtedly enter the magic oirole the coin
ing summer. Who will handle her is un
certain. It is rumored that Kirk Lord of
this place will pull the reins over her.
Rice, the hsrnessmaker, has a dark bay,
called (*The Butoher's Choice." He is
being given road work. His defeat at
the county fair last fall in the Green race
has only sharpened his appetite. He will
probably be driven with toe weights and
shin boots after the roads are settled in
Frank Gilford, the president of the Scott
County Agricultural society, has
a clay bank, breeding unknown,
that is threatened with speed.
He is undecided as yet whether he will put
him into the trainer's hands the coming
season or not, as he thinks him rather
young to stand the work.
The 2.20 Sires.
[Breeders' Gazette.]
It is not yet a quarter of a century since
a mile in 2:20 or better was first aooom
plished by a trotter, and yet,sinoe that day
in 1859 that Flora Temple trotted the Eal
amazoo track in 2.19%, no less than 118
other horses have trotted in 2:20 or better,
the number having now become so large
as to wairant the placing of the 2:20 olass
in a list by themselves when the results of
a season.-; trotting are to b3 considered. A
few weeks ago the Gazette published this
li»t, giving the breeding of evary horse, so
far as known, and its compliation brought
to light many facts which oannot fail to be
of value to cii who take
an interest in the breeding of the
trotter. Investigation Ehows that the sires
of all the 119 horses in the 2:20 list are
known, although in some instances the
blDod imes of- these sires are not by any
means established. This is notably so in
the case of the firßt 2:20 horse, Flora
Temple, tho etallio& that got her being a
big, coarse sorrel, of unknown breeding.
The earns may be said of Conklin's Abdal
lah, sire of Raras, 2:13^. He was called
a son of Abdallah, but not the slightest
evidence to support the claioa has ever been
produced. These two were by long odds
the best of their day, and proved, by de
feating ail comers, that their blood, albeit
unknown, was both fast and stout.
With tke dams of the 2:20 horses tkere
i« more doubt, the breeding of the dams
of Camors, Deck Wright, Frank, Annie W.,
Ettia Jones, Nancy Haokett, Sleepy Joe,
Mode»e. Moose, Judge Follerton, Will
Cody, Amsrican Girl, Red Cloud, G©l.
Lewis, Charley Ford, Ooeidest, Blow Go
uad Hanais being wholly unknown, wkile
tkai of several otkers is in doabt. And
yet, when one considers the loose and care
less manner is which the pedigrees of
trotters were, until within a few yearß, es
tablished and recerded, the wonder is that
so many of them have keen pseterved.
To everyone connected with tke trot
ting horse, and especially to the breeding
interests of the country, it is of the utmos*
importance that the blood lines of our trot
ters should be in every instance clearly es
tablished in order that the lessons taaght
by thorn may be ever present to tke minds
of those whose e&pitalis invested ia breed-
ing farms.
We fiad, then, by carefml analysis of the
pedigrees of the 119 homes that have hot
ted in 2:20 or better, that of the stallions
oaaiyrisJE.3 the list of sires nineteen are
orediJed with two or more each in the list.
These stallions and the number «f their
get that have trotted in 2:20 or better,
together with the fastest record made by a
horse of their get, are aa follows:

Of these nineteen korses, no lesa than
nine are sons of Ryadyk's Hambletonian;
threo ars his grandsons, while the old
"Hero of Chester" himself rounds oit the
list, making thirteen, or over two-thirds of
the entire number that belong to the Hara
blctonian family. These thirteen horses
have contributed to the 2:20 list thirty-two
of tka forty-three animals sired by the
nineteen stallions that kave two or more
apiece to their credit —or about seventy*
five per cent of the whole, a showing that
tells its own story.
This leaves seventy-four sires responsible
for the o'chor horses in the list, and exam
ination shows that fourteen of these are
sons of Rysdiok's Hambletonian and five
his grandsons—or about twenty-five per
cent, of the whcle.
Of the ninety-three stallions that have
sired the 119 trotters composing the 2:20
list, thirty, or about cne-third, are sons or
grandsons of Rysdick's Hambletonian, and
the founder of the family must be ad ded
io these figures. It would be easy to fol
low this branch of the subjeot and go into
details is to the breeding of the other
sires represented in the list, bui such
action would not be productive of any
special benefit. Next week we shall take
the dams of the 2:20 trotters, so far as they
are known, and consider their blood lines.
"Vigilant" in the Spirit of fh>. Times:
Ircquois will be trained again. When he
returned from Baltimore it was the gen
eral impression that tha hero of Epsom
and DoßCaster had answered the ball fcr
the last time, and that ne would retire to
tho placs which ha 3so lontj awaited him in
his own pleasant homo at Ranoosas, from
whence he would, through his wooißgs of
Vaadalite, Florenca, Suaan Ann,atid others
of the Belgravian coterie who browse over
its pastures, send out a race of flyers that
would bring renewed glory ta the ehttrry
jacket. Mr. Lorillard, however, is not
disposed to allow the American career of
his Derby winner to end with the past sea
son. Iroquois will be bred to some fif
teen or twenty mares at Rancocas, and
will then be prepared for his engagements.
We have been accustomed to exalt Iro
quois. We still believe him to be one of
the speedies* horses on the turf. But we
are in doubt if he is quite the stayer we
bad supposed him. After his races at
Moamoath we spoke so his driver about it.
" Ob, well, replied Byrnes, " you expect
ed too much. You muut not forget that he
was only two weeks oil gbip; he had broken
a blood vessel, and his feet troubled him
some. R«t it was as good a race as he
every run in England."
"But in England he stayed nearly two
railes under heavy weights."
11 Why wouldn't he ? Over there they
don't be^in until the last half mile ; here
it's from the start."
" Then you haven't a high opinion of
English horses."
" Not as stayers, sir, no ; but they are
very fast."
Now, although Byrnes did not aay that
Iroquois was not a stayer, his words hinted
the belief. At least they struck us that
way at the time. It will also be remem
bered that in the race for the St. Leger, at
Doncaster. in 1881, Irequois did not make
Mb run until the last furlong. A friend
of ours, who witnessed the race, asked Pin
cus if Archer rode to orders.
"Oh, yeri," replied Pincus.
"Why did yoa desire to wait so long
with Iroqnois?"
"Oh, well, I was afraid he was a little
short of work," was Piacns' answer.
Now, then, it isn't likely that Pineus
would say that it was because he feared
Iroquois could not stay if they came out
sooner. If once the secret was known the
English trainers would soob have found a
way to settle him, and Jake Pineus is the
last man to show his hand. We never
liked the action of Iroquois in front. He
seemed stiff in the shoulders, and remain
ed so throughout the season; but they say
he had that in England. One day we ask
ed Pinous how much below his English
form he thought Iroquois had shown here.
"Oh, he was a little better than in the first
race at Monmouth," he replied. This did
sot enlighten us any. The first race at
Moumoi; i was badly ridden, as Feakes
made two attempts instead of nursing his
horse for a single dash. Moreover, the
circumstances were unfavorable, and, had
he been the best stayer in the world, much
more could not have been expected. Those
raoes knocked him out of sorts, but Hay
ward maintains that had the Pimlico
stakes been a quarter of a mile less he
could have "squandered" Miss Woodford,
and even at a mile and a half he could
have beaten her, but for the muddy traok,
to which the horse was unaccustomed. It
is likely that Iroquois will be nominated
for the cups, but we expect him to play a
more important part in such ricea a3 ihe
Ooney L,!ar.d and Ocean etakes.
Tfee Boston Herald has recently been in
terviewing Col. H. S. Huseell and talks
thus pleasantly of the premier stallion.
"Since his retirement from competition
Oft the traok, Smuggler, the fastest trot
ting stallion the world his ever known,
hati been in easy retirement in breeding
quarters, and in all probability will never
again trot another r&ce, as he is now sev
enteen years old. The fast son of Blan
oo, whose record of 2:15*4 in 1876, has
never jet been equalled by a trotting stal
lion, has been little heard of for the past
four yearß, as, during the season of 1879,
1880 and 1881, he was in retirement at
Cynthiana, Ky., and most of the time since
then has been on the breeding farm of
John Woodnut, at Minneola, Long Island.
He is as fine looking to-day as he was
seven years ago, when he ma4e his great
record, and te the unprofessional eye
•*. _-j;s ii;, with proper oare and handling,
to repeat see performance next year. Col.
Henry S. Russell, of Milton, has own&d
Smuggler Bince early in 1875, having
bought him of Mr. Tough,of Leavenworth,
Kac. Smuggler first developed speed at
Olatha, Kan., whither ho was tak&n as a
oolt by Mr. John M. Msrg&n, by whom he
was bred near Columbus, O. Smuggler's
dam was a pacing mare which had seen
service in the army, and was bought of a
cavalry officer at Clarksburg, Ya., in 18G3.
The mare was a fast pacer of unknown
pedigree, and was so wall &ni
powerfully built that it was de
cided to make her a brood mare,
aad Bhe waa seat to Blaaoo, a son of Iron's
Cadmms. Col. Russell was asked a few
iays ago what he iateaded doing with
Smuggler next season. Hia answer was:
"Uadar the present arr*«e talent his sea
son will expire aext May. bat «s far as I
know at preseat, he will remain on Long
Island next year."
"Very little has been heard of Smug
gler of late," was siggested.
"That was to be expeoted," said the
colonel. "There are two periods when a
trotting stallion may get reputation. One
is when he makes a remarkably fast per
formance; the other wmem his sons and
daughters bring him iato promiaenee by
their performance*. Imtuggler has had
his trotting day aad kas doae woaderfally
well, as the record will show."
"What are his prospects for getting
rapitatien as a sire of trottsrs?"
"Tiweand patience are neceseary to
•how that. The great breeding stallion
Rysdyk's Hambletonian was seventeen
years old before any of his get trotted a
mile under 2:30, and then time was made
aader saddle, aad Hambletonian was
eighteen years aid before the famevs Dex
ter, whose sire he was, made hie then great
record of 2:17J4 at Buffalo. Smaggler
has reached his seventeenth year, and
none of his get trotted cader 2:30 until
this last season, when Smuggler's daughter
made a r»cord of 2:29J^."
"Then, judging from the experience of
the Hambletooians, next year oaghi to be
a good year for the Smugglers?"
"It would seem so," said the colonel,
evideatly amused at the idea. "Bat we'll
wait till next year and see."
"Wedgewood has had an excellent &e&«on
"Oh, yes," answered Col. Russell. "Well
the first year that Smuggler served at
Home Farm he had forty-two mares at
$200 each, besides my ewn. Too muoh is
expeoted of young colts, and people are
too impatient to see them do wonders in
trotting long before time has developed
them. I haven't retained my old interest
in the breeding of horses, because I have
sold out all my stock, with the exception
of six yearling oolts of Smuggler. All the
brood mares are gone; in fact, I gave the
last oae away. The great barn at Home
Farm has been fitted for cattle breeding;
and that interests me at present far mere
than the breediag of horses. Now," con
tinued the colonel, smiling, "if there's any
information you want about Jersey cattle,
I think I can interest you, but really there
isn't much to say about Smuggler, exoepi
what I hava te'dyou. From present in
dications he will remain at Minneoln tkis
Matt Byrnes, the Rancocas trainer, has
purchased a handsome farm of eighty-seven

the Captain does as well on the Democrat
a he did on the Globb we Bhall welcome
a valuable exchange.
The Amerioan Stud Book, Tol. IT, will,
we understand, ba ont about March 1. It
will be remembered that Col. Bruce had
completed, in February, 1882, wken the
manuscript was destroyed by the fire
whioh occurred, thus rendering it necessary
to go over the work again. The volame
will oover nearly 700 pages, and will sup
ply a want long felt, as it clears up many
of the old pedigrees which have hitherto de
pended upon tradition.
S. Aiken, of Deoorah, la., writes: "I
have a colt a year old last May, that
weighed, December 20, 1,005 pounds. What
is remarkable about him is that he is an
inbred Hambletonian. His sire is Wales'
Volunteer, by Goldsmith's Vol»nteer,whoie
dam was by Rysdyk's Hambletonian. The
dam of my oolt is by Wilbur Hambleto
nian, he by Rysdyk's Hambletonian. He
is only in ordinary fleeh, very strong bone
and muscle, stands just sixteen hands
high, and promises to trot fast.
Veritas, in Spirit of the Times: "Dr. E.
E.Frost, of Worcester, Mass., owner of
Administrator, writes me that his Lambert
mare, Annie Page, full sister to Aristos, is
in foal to his horse, and that she is very
fast on the enow this winter, having trot
ted a quarter mile in 31 seoonds, a half
in 1:06, and a mile in 2:15 on the ioe. He
adds that Administrator is in fine fettle,
and took first premium at the New Eng
land fair and wherever exhibited last fall;
that he then showed a quarter in 36 seconds;
over a half-mile traok without preparation,
and not a boot or a weight on him."
The following horses are now at Mr.
Case's Hickory Grove Stock farm, Racine,
Wis., and will be campaigned next season
under the trainging of the gentlemanly
young driver, Edwin Bither, viz: Jay Eye
See, Phallas, Endymion, J. Irving See and
Gurle. The king of trotting geldings Is
now running out daily, barefooted and un
blanketed, inside the track enclosure.
Phallas is jogged regularly, and will make
an early season in the 6tud, say up to
April 1; after that he will be put in active
training. Gurgle, by Pocahontaa Boy, is
receiving moderate exercise, and will be
dangerous in the slow pacing classes, as
she has ghown far better than 2:20.
Endymion is a youngster of good behavior
and great endurance.
A turf circuit, to be called the Rocky
Mountain circuit, is in process of organi
zation, with a capital stock of $10,000,
half paid in. The money will be used as a
nucleus for the purpose of purchasing
lands and building houses and tracks at
the various towns in the cirouit, which will
include Helena, Butte, Denver, Pueblo,
Omaha and San Francisco and other towns
that may hereafter bo decided upon.
Horses going east from San Francisco in
the spring will be able to take in the
Rocky Mountain circuit, and returning
from the east will be enabled to join in
the fall meetings. So, also, horses coming
fiow Omaha and tke east in the early part
of the year will be able to enter the Socky
Mountain circuit for the spring raoes, and
raturning from the coast will be able to
taka part in 4he fall meeting.

[Special Correspondence of the Globe-]
Milwaukee, Jan. 19, 1884.—1n last
week'a letter, in speaking of the necessity
of Alex. Mitchell's assistance in the East
Side hotel project, reference was made to
the millionarie's deep pockets. The al
lusion was recalled to mind, the other day,
I as the Globe correspondent stepped into
Mitchell's bank on business; not business
in connection with any heavy deposit or.
draft of bis reporter's do not know
how those things feel —but as U3ual on
matters of more import to others than
to himself. As he stood on the tiled floor
and gazed at the surroundings, the im
pression of solidity thai strikes almost
everybody who enters the room impinged
sharply upos him. Everything seemed
to testifiy to resources unfathomable. And
this testimony of the present was rein
forced in your correspondent's
mind by a tradition which
tells of a run on the bank
away back in the early days, before ths ad
vent of railroads. Tke panic stricken
depositors were besieging the bank, where
the ocol teller was paying out money on
demand, without hesitancy; but the teller's
coolness had no effect on the heat of de
moralization, and it was not until the
treasure wagon, guarded by men, arrived
from Chicago, that the panic subsided.
When the boxes of bullion were laid upon
the floor behind the line of desks and
roughly opened with a hatchet, exposing to
view the glittering wealth to a seemingly
fabulous amount, the effect was like that
of water «pon fire. Borne of those who
were waiting for thair money tamed away
satisfied, while others who had but a short
time before drawn their wealth returned
and redeposited it. The aged German
from whom this tradition was handed
down to the writer was in the panic, and
was bent upon drawing his money.
When he saw the boxes of "shiners"
on the leer behind the desk he pished
back his "pile" and accepted his certificate
of deposit. The air of carelessness with
wkith the boxes of bnllion were permitted
to lie about the floor had a most reassuring
effect. In the lose; years that have passed
since the transaction had its origin, the
personnel of the bank has, of course,
changsd somewhat, but
be*ind the desks, and David Ferguson,
cashier, and John Johnston, his assistant,
kave been with him long enough to claim
identification with the institution from
roots upward. Mitchell and Ferguson kave
grows older, but Johnston seems to .be
growing younger, the rejuvenation dating
from his second conrtship and marriage a
few years ago. The spruce and natty
Jokn of to-day bears no resemblance to
the austere and whisker-obscured Johns
ton ot years agone. Ferguson's familiar
fora may be seen at the bank every day,
his facial appearance somewhat marred by
two peculiar patent ear drvms which flank
his genial countenance. Mitchell
invariably wears a buttonhole bouquet,
and walks about the room with a firm
step, indicative of his sturdy character,
which is mirrored in his full and ruddy
Scotch face. His sanctum sanctorum is in
one corner of tho bank, and is an elegant
little place. Here the great financier re
ceives business "company" and listens to
appeals for charitable and other contribu
tions. When a delegation waits upon him
the spokesman, generally with trepidation
wholly unwarranted, tells Mr. Mitchell of
their plans. The firßt pause is filled by
the great banker with "Well, what of it?"
Spokesman, collecting his wite, then in
forms the man of money that he is looked
to for a contribution. If the cauee is a
worthy one Mr. Mitchell invariably gives
something dismissing the petitioners and
instructing the officers to pay the amount
of hia coiitribation. After the order ia
given within hearing in this manner:
"John (meaning Johnson), give these
I o/s" $50, $100 or $200, as the case mny
be. A change has lately been taken place
bshind the desk. Chae. L. Blanchard's
calculating eyeß no louger peer through
tha teller's window. He resigned some
time ago to go into buasnens, and is now
connected with the Standard* Paper com
pany. William Bollow, his as
sistant, has taken his place, and Bol
low's position has been filled by the ap
pointment of Alex. W. Ding wall. The
familiar countenance of Robert L. Jen
nings, the correspondent of the bank, is
still visible near the teller's desk. He, too,
has been with the bank long enough to be
denominated a fixture.
There is trouble in the county board. It
has the flavor of age, and dates back to the
baiting of Supervisor Hase, when he man
aged the house of correction. W. M.
Brighajs, a prominent Republican mem
ber of the board, has badgered Hase con.
siderably during his career as a supervisor
aad now the latter tkinks ke kas Brighan
where he can pinck kirn sharply, and
judging from indications Brigham ia go
ing to be pinohed. Hase has disooverod
that the firm of W. M. Brigham & Co.,
commission merchants, has furnisked the
county with supplies during Brigham's in
cumbency of tho offioa of supervisor,
and as this is a breach of the
law in such oase made and pro
vided, Hase has taken steps to have
Brif ham expelled. Tke matter has been
brought to tho attention of the diatriot at
torney, who says he will institute o/u* war
nto proceedings to oust Brigham. The
prominence of the parties makes the fight
interesting, and as Bngham brought the
storm upon himself by trying to fasten a
similar misdemeanor npon Hase, tke af
fair, in the eyes of the latter's friends, has
taken oa a retribntive tcne. Brigham
hints that if he is forced out he will drag
others with him. Brigham's persecution
of Arohiteot Gombert has also been turned
upon him like a boomerang, and the ene
mies of the former are trying to fasten
upon him the responsibility of certain im
perfections in the new county hospital,
whioh he attempted to shoulder upon Gom
bert. The music has just begun.
William G. Swan, a prominent rail
road man, died early yesterday morning
of Bright's disease, aged forty-one
years and eight months. He commenced
railroading at the age of 15, in the employ
of the Chicago and Northwestern road,and
by attention and work won bis way to
prominence. He was at one time superin
tendent of the West Wisconsin railway,now
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and
Omaha. In 1877 he aeooptod the office of
assistant general freight agent of the Chi
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, and
in 1884), when the oftoe of superintendent
of freight traffic was created, he accepted
the position and held it until sieknesa in
oapitated him. Hia funeral, which occurs
to-morrow, will bo conducted by the
Knights Templar, Mr. Swan having been
a member of Apollo oommandery of Chi
cago, and tke Oriental Consistory, of the
same city. Mr. Swan's railway companions
have raised a purse of nearly $10,000,
whioh will be presented to his widow as a
practioal expression of their love for her
deceased hnsband.
There is muoh subdued talk about an
approaching marriage which will raise a
servant to the proud position of mistress
of one of the most elegant residences in

children, and his first wife hns been dead ;
