A MORNING AT THE RACE TRACK.
With in Sound of Hoofbeats of Levelheaded Trotters. The Descendants of the Moor and Echo in Light Harness. The Yearlings Undergoing Their Prelim inary Education at the Diagonal Gait —Premonition* of Fait Time at the Fair, The air is yet warm, although the sultry days of July and August are left astern in the voyage of the year. As yet thero is no tinge of frost to warn us of the near approach of au tumn, but the nights are cool, and "tired nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleep," comes to the drowsy eyelids more readily than it did in the earlier sum mer days. Still a September in South ern California is a summer month, legit imately enough, just as much so as March is a winter month in Washington or Idaho. And as tbe year is slowly approaching the days when it shall be gathered into the sheaf and stored in tbe garner of tbe centuries, so the liar vest moon haa begun to wane, and the corn goes into tbe barn. The harvest haa been a bounteous one, and the year one of signal prosperity for the smiling south. The season of our annual fair, too, is but four weeks off, and the trot ters have begun to flock into the stables at Agricultural park pretty freely. The victorious blood of Sultan and Echo is now being commingled with that of numerous descendants of Electioneer, George Wilkes and Strathmore, and generally to good advantage. Over sixty orses are now domiciled at the track, most of them being new candidates for the popular favor. The largest number of horses, in any one man's charge, is the stable of Maj. Thomas H. Griffin, who has twenty-seven bead, owned by half a dozen other gentlemen beside himself. AN EARLY MORNINO RIDE. The journey to the work on the street cars tbeae perfect mornings, if one is not rich enough to own his horse and buggy, is one of the pleasures of the season, for the electric line whisks you down there at a rapid pace. But the electric line should leave you at the gate of tbe track, in compliance with its charter, or it should paint out the words "Agricultural park," which now embel lish all its cars. As it is, you are landed in the deep dust at University station on the Southern Pacific road, whence yon have to foot it over to the track. But once there at 8 or 9 o'clock in the morning, you are the willing witness of a busy and exciting scene. A couple of dozen trotters are out on tbe track at once, aome "going around with thesun," while others are driving the reverse way of the track. Let ns get a seat up in the grand stand, from which we bave bo often witnessed the victories gf Stam boul, Alcazar, Ruby, John Treat, £1 Rayo and McKinney, and watch the passing show. Tom Story's fine Caliph colt is the first to attract my attention. He combines our two strongest strains of blood, tbe Sultan and tbe Echo, with the former on tbe side of the sire. In the outlines of his form he leans decid edly toward the Moors, but is a more soggy horse than tbe most of tbem. A VERY PROMISING THREE-YEAR-OLD, This strapping youngster ia full of promise, and Mr. Story is reported to have refused a very good offer for him, last week, made by a San Franciscan through Tom Griffin. Tbe colt goes with a great swinging stride and yet has no dwell in his gait. Very few horses bave much prettier action than this fel low. Close behind him comes John Vance with the beauty, Riceta, a lovely bay mare with a most expressive counte nance and a decidedly rapid way of skimming over the ground with her low, and insidious gait. Sbe is going to be a hard mare to beat in ber class at this fair. Behind her comes Griffin with a lordly, big black stallion, called Laguna, whose gait seems to improve from day to day while, for courage, coupled with an excellent temper, he is not to be sur passed by any horse on the ground. He is by Del Sur, an expatriated sire, whose stock has been generally condemned aa soft horses, but who is the sire of Don Tomas, the horse who beat Bay Rose in 2:20, and of San Pedro, "the hearse horse," that got below 2:11 in bis first season on the tracks. Surely there cam-ot be much tbat is soft about horses which perform like that. Alongside of Griffin ie the emaciated Mr. Lockhart, of Burbank, with a good-looking son of Anteeo, called Anteeo Button. This fel low favorß his sire "the Little Tiger," very much in hia conformation. A VETERAN HORSE LOVER. An elderly gentleman, with side winkers, makes his appearance with a brown stallion, as Lockhart and Griffin drive tbeir foaming steeds to tbeir re spective stables. This gentleman is Mr. Edward Dtipee, who is rapidly nearisg to lee shore of 70. He is a great lover of good trotting horses, however, and enjoys his morning ride in the sulky as well as the younger votaries of the di agonal gait. Vance, who baa just been jogging Riceta slowly this morn ing, now goes to the stable with her, and turns her over to his senior "swipe" for her toilet. He now mounts another Bulky, to which is harnessed a low and lengthy dapple gray stallion of tbe famous Richmond blood, which is now beginning to be regarded with much favor aB an outcross upon the Hamble tonian blood. This strain of blood is full of native excellence, ac exemplified through the male line in Richmond Jr., 2:15, Leon, 2:22%, Romero, 2:l9>_, and Arrow (pacer), 2:13%- In tDe female line we rind this blood equally stable and meritorious, its exponents being Anteeo, 2:16%, Antevolo (four years), 2:l9>_, and Rory O'Moore (pacer), 2:19%. In all, the Richmond blood shows ten per formers in 2:30 or better, and the dams of eight more. If Mr. Joseph C.Simp son had done nothing more than bring "old Al" to California, our people would still owe him a debt of unceasing grati tude. A NEW BATCH OF FLYERS. A fresh lot of trotterß now appear, as the first lot are being rubbed down and put away. Vance has a handsome chestnnt mare which looks a trifle too big and bulky to trot a good race this season; and they do say tbat her visits to McKinney, 2:12,'-_, are the immediate cause of her corpulency. She is a very handsome mare, however, and will make a glorious looking matron when finally relegated to tbe stud. She has a good gait and may yet "astonißh tbe natives" under different surrounding. Griffin is out behind another stallion this time, a .-eon of the immortal Stamboul, 2:11, LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 12, im. who did more toward advertising South ern California abroad than any one of a dozen other horses. This colt is running bred on the dam's aide, hia maternal grandsire being a eon of the gallant old bay horae whose record at three-mile heats remaioh unbroken to this very day, although accomplished over a quarter century ago. The difference between this stout little cob and hia younger half-brother, by McKinney, 2:12..., is very noticeable when both colts are out on tbe track together. The 2 year-old ia the larger horae already, but tbe Stamboul colt ia a little dandy, never theleae. These two showy youngsters are the property of Mr. J. W. Gardiner, who, like tbe late J. Morgan, haa "played the organ" to some purpose. DEBUTANTS FROM CHINO. Mr. Richard Gird, owner of the fa mous Chino ranch, purchased the stal lion Wolsey, own brother to Sufiol, from Senator Stanford, at Palo Alto, and from this fine young horsa he haa bred aome of the showiest horees ever aeen here or elsewhere. About a year ago the horse strained himself while at play in. his paddock, and brought on a case of varicocele, which led up to a partial emasculation. He t haa, so far, gotten Rome good colts, but it is feared that hia procreative powers are at an end. One of hia progeny now makes his appearance in Tom Story's sulky, and a magnificent, rangy fellow he is, a golden chestnut, with a fine neck, and very expressive face. It ia a great pity there are not more like him. "Here cornea one of your favoritea," exclaims Tom Griffin, as Dr. Williams entera the gate, in a cart drawn by a eolid bay stallion, built as compactly aa old Justin Morgan himaelf, and yet con siderably over the average size. "That'a him—that's Marlborough, and a fine looker he is." Thia horse ia one of the kind of stallions the New Eng land horsemen like best; ribbed home like an English parson's cob, and muscled inside the thighs like a Texaa quarter-horse. His stroke is a sort of fortuitous combination of the low, daisy-cutting action of the Sultana with tbe vigorous knee action of the Hamble tonian blood on hia sire's aide. "want to drive a yearling?" asks Griffin, but I politely decline the invitation, as memories of rides behind Shot, Jim Barton, Latham and Young America come back to me, veiled by the mista of receding years. Out he comes with Zeus, b. c. by McKinney, out of Grace Kaiser, by Kaisei, 2200, who is one of the very best bred sons of George Wilkes, the immortal. This colt is the old man of all the fleet. He ia scant 15 months old, but is as thoroughly track wise and as fully accustomed to sulky duty as most 3-year-olds. His stable companion is a pretty bay filly called Perfection, and the title is far from being a mis nomer. She is by Count Simmons, and can show quarters at a 2:28 gait already, but the big colt, who has never yet trotted a quarter inside of 40 seconds, will be able to beat her very cleverly next year- Nor is Griffin alone in this equine nursery discipline, for along comes Vance with a bay yearling filly by Atto Rex out of a mare by Rustic. She is very showy, although he has a little one by Stamboul, jr., ont of an Anteeo mare. Just as I am admiring her, up comes a diminutive African into the grand stand and says: "Please, Bah, Mr. Ryan sends his compliments to yer, and axes ef yer won't come over to de house an' hey some breckfuss wid de fambly?" Hidalgo. DEALERS IN MONEY. Some Notables Here From JCastern Banking; Circles.

THE WORK HARD IN GRAY MATTER A Mail Clerk Talks About the Service's Hardships. Labor Which is a Constant Strain on the Memory. An Inmate of Stockton Who if Con stantly Throwing the Scheme. The Things Clerks Have to Remember. "For double-distilled essence of brain destroyer, commend me to the railway postal service," remarked a weary looking member of that department of the government to a Herald reporter, yesterday. "It's a wonder to me," he continued, "that there are not more men in the railway mail service than there are, who become howling, irreclaimable ma niacs." ' • "Perhaps you never considered the service from a lunatic-making ma chine standpoint," said the postal clerk, nervously, while his hands beat a curious tatoo on the arms of his chair. The young fellow suddenly began to make his right hand describe lightning like movements, which locked as if he was chucking imaginary letters and par cels into innummerable holes. "I wake up' in the night doing tbat," he said. "My brain keeps at work after I am asleep, and it is only a question of time, I believe, before I will be yanked up before the commissioners in lunacy as a candidate for an asylum. Just like that poor fellow who went from Lob An geles to Stockton a few months ago. He has never quit throwing the scheme since he has been there, and the doctors aay he never will. He has distributed tons upon tons of letters and cursed at tons upon tons of newspapers, and ex amined thousands of postal clerks. He is haunted day and night by the dread that be has missed some insignificant little hole of a place for throwing off mail." "Did he lose his mind from the work he did?" . "Exactly. He was the examiner of the boys at Los Angeles, and bad to re member about 20,000 postoffices. Not only tbat, but tbe different combina tions of routes, distributing offices and all the intricate thousand and one changes and details of the most laby rinthine system that a man ever under took to retain in one small brain. He had to know it better than any individ ual postal clerk, and keep up the strain of going over it all with each man. It is not only the California post offices, you understand, but this dis trict includes all the Pacific coast states and territories. He had to have every one of the thousands of postoffices and routes, through pouches, local pouches, and all that, at the tip of his tongue. The strain was too much, that is all. His gray matter gave way completely, and it is my opinion tbat statistics, when compiled,on this subject, will re veal the fact that the percentage of men who go crazy is larger in the railway postal service than in any other nerve paralyzing business on the face of the earth." "It becomes very mucb a matter of habit, and mechanical, though, doea it not?" "With come, yea; but with many others, whose temperaments are highly strung and who are bundles of nerves, they are driving big -spikes into their coffins every time they study out, and go over a scheme. These are the men who ought to throw up their places and go right out into the world. They have no right to commit slow suicide in that manner. One of tbe commonest com plaints' in the service is insomnia. Yet there are some fellows who drink con siderably and still come right up to the .highest percentage, with seemingly very little strain on tbeir mental forces. You see the government demands a high percentage in this business, and it is one of the most astonishing things in the world how retentive the memories of some men become under tbe con tinual training they are bound to fo through. The training of 'Poor ohn' and 'Pompodour Jim' waß nothing in comparison to the mental gymnastics of a postal clerk. When he works out a heavy load of mail matter in his car he ia, nine times out of ten, in a state of mental collapse, and probably the next morning is due at the case to throw five or six hundred cards into the little compartments of the frame of some state or territory. Any per centage under ninety is bad. I have just finished throwing Arizona, and I went through it in a little over an hour, making 09 per cent. I missed four offices, and two of these were forget ful ness of the railrond combination. The department recognizes accuracy and time in throwing the scheme, and estab lishes premiums on these qualities. They want me to try for the first place, but I'll fool them. My percentage is above the average, and I am haunted by the prospect of going off my mental bal ance. The same fear ie prevalent in the service. There are very few of the boys who like to undertake the position of examiner, and there are fewer atill since the collapse of the poor fellow who is now at Stockton." "Ib the number of mistakes very large," asked the reporter. "No, it is quite small. Mail matter seldom goes wrong, bo expert have the men become who bave been in the ser vice quite awhile. The new man, though, has not a bed of roses to lie upon. His first six months are months which will long be remembered with anything bnt roseate colors. Not long ago a new man went ont north with con siderable of a stack of mail. He was in structed to put off mail at each station. Very early in the action he became rat tled and began to heave off mail without regard to its destination at every stop. He even dumped off the, through pouches, so that when he reached the end of his run he hadn't a solitary sack left. Tbat mail was traveling around seeking its proper destination for two or three weeks, and the new man hasn't heard the last of it to this day. On my first run I forgot to put off Pasadena when we went through there, and car ried it along for some distance, so that there were the angriest lot of business men in the Crown of the Valley the next day tbat you can imagine. The new man's lot is not an enviable one. People who receive their letters and newspapers every day sel dom give a thought to the boys who distribute the matter from innumerable places in rapidly-mov ing care, with scarcely ever an error. Business men, whose tran sactions would be seriously inter fered with by mistakes rarely give the postal clerk a thought, but he works along just the same, sometimes collaps ing physically and sometimes mentally, and tbe mails go on forever." "What is the largest number of post offices that any one has remembered?" ' That is difficult to say. There are some men who claim to be able to thor oughly know 25,000. Just think of tbat number of combinations of letters danc ing around in the recesses of the postal brain, playing hide and seek with each other, jumping around in grotesque corners, appearing in all sorts of places and in all sorts of company to render life miserable. We consider our lives overcast in this district, but the clerks back east have so many- more postoffices and networks of rail roads to learn that we may be considered lucky. Any one who considers the rail way postal service a soft snap should come out with me on my run, sometime, and I will paralyze him in the first round." EXPLAIN, MR. WALKER! AN INDIGNANT SAN PEDRO TAX PAYER. WANTS INFORMATION. He Not Only Pays His Own Poll Tax, but That of Another Man, and Wants to Know About It. Walker Never Paid. A taxpayer who lives down at San Pedro writes the Herald an interesting letter detailing his experiences in deal ing with Borne of the present Republican county officials who are conducting the $12 per minute government on court house hill. The taxpayer aforesaid calls attention to some of the "new settings up" of tbe said Republican officials, which are a source of annoyance, and work a hard ship to the already overburdened small property owners. In his letter he re cites the following facts, and asks some questions. "On May 21,1888, Mr. A sold a lot 40x120 to Mr. B in the city of San Pedro. In 1889 Mr. B Bold the lot to me, and since 1889 I have held the ownership. Mr. A is supposed not to have paid his poll tax in 1888, whereupon in this year of our Lord, 1892, a party named R. F. House writes me a piece of poetry to the effect that I am indebted to the etate of California in the sum of $12, for the rea son tbat Mr. A. bad failed to pay his poll tax in 1888. "I came to Lob Angeles and inter viewed Mr. R. F. House at the court house, in one of those elegantly fur nished offices, equipped with marble floors, beautiful desks and counters. I asked bim for an explanation, and be told me tbat a man in the county audi tor's office would give me a receipt and take my money. Further than this Mr. House was blissfully ignorant. "After an interview with tbe county auditor, I concluded tbat the beet thing to do waa to pay. I had no time or money to do anything else. I therefore paid and received the following receipt: Delinquent poll tax $ 4 00 Cash 60 Soid to state 4 SO Interest on above ill Notice., 3 00 Twenty per cent, amount sold to state... 1 12 County auditor's fee 2 00 Total $11 73 "So the state of California is loaning money on claims at a rate of interest that will bankrupt a bank. I get it whacked to me in the sum of $3 for hav ing a notice served on me that it cost 5 cents to serve. The county auditor gets a large salary and does nothing. Yet I am mulcted for $2 to pay him a fee for collecting $11.73. "It is time. The taxpayers of thia county are getting it soaked into them with a vengeance. Ido hope tbat we can get a new set of officers at the ap proaching election. I bave never voted the Democratic ticket before, but thie year lam going to go it straight. Any thing for a change. We can't bave it any worse than it is now. "One ot- the Soaked in Taxpaberb." There are some questions asked by the "Soaked in Taxpayer" that the Herald cannot answer. The supposition is that the $11.73 was collected from him "ac cording to law," yet it does seem cruel that he should be forced to pay tbe poll tax of Mr. A. for 1888 in order to clear the title to his little home. Perhaps Mr. N. B. Walker, the Republican nom inee for county tax collector, can tell him how to avoid paying his own poll tax, let alone being forced to pay that of another man. Mr. Walker, although he has been drawing a salary from the city and county for four years last past, has never paid a dollar of poll tax, and if be will kindly consent to tell how he managed to have his brother Republican officials overlook him in this particular, it would furnish an interesting chapter.
