Senator Stanford's Great Palo
Alto Breeding Ranch. TIIK NOTED SIRE ELECTIONEER. He l« the Father of Hundreds of Cele brated Trotters, and Is a Good Deal of a Goer Himself—Stanford's Passion for Horses—The Horse in Motion. There are many lovers of horses in the United States senate. Many of the most noted horses and several of the finest breeding farms are owned by them. Some of the wealthier senators have done inestimable ser vice in the development of the American horse. The commingling of the best foreign breeds of horses with those of America has been one of the enterprises of ex-Senator Palmer, of Michigan, and not long ago he commissioned an agent to scour the plains of Arabia for rare breeding horses. Palmer is STATION AT PAI.O ALTO. also much interested in the magnificent Per cheron draught horses of Normandy in France, and ho hus some splendid Percherons on bis farm near Detroit. But the most noted horse breeder of con gress is Leland Stanford, the wealthy senator from California. He devoted a considerable portion of his vast fortune of $75,000,000 to the establishment of his great stock ranch at Palo Alto, Cal., and his annual sale is one of tho great events in the world of horses. Stanford is a man of vast experience. Al though it did not take him long to acquire his great fortune, the hardships lie was obliged to undergo during the construction of the Pacific railroads were equal to those of a life time of the average man. From a briefless young lawyer to the possessor of one of the greatest fortunes in the world is a long ascent, but Stanford may be said to have achieved it at a bound. His career since the comple tion of the Central Pacific railroad, wfien he found himself a millionaire many times over, is well known. He has been saddened by the death, while traveling in Italy, of his only son, and it is to the memory of this youth that he hus endowed the §15,000,000 univer sity now being erected in California. Stanford lives magnificently in Washing ton during tho winter. He has several •splendid teams of carriage horses in his stables at the capital. Ho can handle tho ritibous with great skill, and in his younger days was •a fino horseback rider. But ho has ^rnwii rather too heavy for this exercise now. Ho is a fine looking man, with a rosy face, brown hair aud a gray beard. Ho talks slowly and -deliberately, and is one of tho most charita ble of the millionaires. "I becamo interested in thoroughbred horses," be once said, "through ill health. My doctor had ordered a vacation for mo, aud had told mo that I must go away on a tour. I could not. leave at tho time, and he advised me to leave as soon as possible. I bought a little horse that turned out to be re markably fast, and it was in the using of it that I becamo interested in the study of the horse and its actions. I began to buy fast horses and breed them. It was a very ex pensive amusement •at first, but it is now profitable, and think it is useful as well. We are raising a much finer class of horses in the United States SENATOR STANFORD AND HIS COUNTRY RESIDENCE. now than ever before, and I believe that by proper breeding we can double the working powers and the staying powers of our work horses. I do not think there are any fast trotters that have not a trace of thorough bred blood, and I don't believe that any horse without such a trace has ever made mile in three minutes.'' The importance of Senator Stanford's Palo Alto ranch to tho breeding interests of the United States cannot bo estimated. There are ten thousand acres within its borders, bat that is not wonderful, for any man of ample means caii buy tew thousand acres. There are over a thousand horses in its sta bles and pastures, but that is of little signifi cance, as any 0110 with the means to pay for them can buy a thousand horses. It does not entirely consist in the number of fast records to its credit, but it is because lie re is beins raised there a grand race of higli bred, sound, handsome horses which trot fast liecause it is their nature to trot, and because they are bred so that tha trotting instinct i* their ruling passion. WAX AN A. The partial burning of the Palo Alto stables last spring was felt very much by Senator Stanford, not so much on account of the ymn nnn which be lost by the fire, but because man* of Ma favorite horses perished in the flames—including California Belle, Rexford, Maiden, Normaine, and the colts Emma Robertson. Troubadour. Lowell and Howell Electioneer, one of the greatest sires in the world, is one of the many noted horses on (he Palo Alto farm. Electioneer was foaled in 18Q8. He was sired by Hambletonian 10, dam the world famed Hairy Clay brood mare Green Mountain Maid second, dam Shanghai Mary, a fast trotting mare of unknown blood Incredible as it may seem to the theorists and adherents of pedigrees made up of eight or ten crosses of different blood, this is all there is of the blood lines of this famous sire—Hambletonian, Harry Clay and a mare of unknown blood, which has accomplished nothing of note except in this single connec tion. Electioneer is the sire of forty-one 3:30 trot ters, aud forty-six daughters which have pro duced more than fifty 2:30 trotters, andis out of this great old mare. He is a combination of the founder of the greatest trotting family, and the foremost mare of a great brood mare family a trotter himself, and all his sisters and cousins and aunts are trotters, and from the most prepotent families. His great suc cess is not enigmatical or a marvel, but only the legitimate sequence of a grand speed in heritance and strong individuality. Senator Stanford purchased Electioneer of I Charles Backman in 1878. At Stony Ford the horse had been given but little opportunity to demonstrate his quality as a sire. At that time large stallions were in favor, and the breeding of the dam 'of Electioneer was extremely unpopular, so much so, in fact, as to be held in contempt. It resulted that Electioneer was entirely neg lected and had but few foals when he was re moved to his California home. At the close of the year 18S7 had about 320 foals of these 33 were weanlings, 37 were yearlings and about 40 were brood mares without records. 01 the whole number of bis foals 231 were bays, 8 were roans, 3 were grays and the residue were either browns or blacks, so that more than 08 per cent, of his get are solid color. At the close of 1887 there had been bred at Palo Alto2!M foals by Electioneer of this number 38 now have records in 2:30 or better. Nine of them, as 2-year-olds, secured records better than 2:30. They are Wildflower, 2:21 Palo Alto, 2:23% Bonita, 2:24^ Fred Crocker, 2:25^f Bell Boy, 2:26 Carrie C., 2:27^ Sphinx, 2:29X Palo Alto Belle, 2-.2&X, and the wonderful Sunol, 2:18. In addition to this Suisun trotted to a record of 2:31 (trial 2:26) Ella secured a record of 2:33^, and Chimes, 2:33J^. Seven have received records in 2:30 or better as 3-year-olds. They are Hinda Rose, 2:19)4 Manzanita, 2:23^ Rexford, 2:24 Maiden, 2:23 Grace I«e, 2:29Jjf Ella, 2:29, and Gertrude Russell,' SPRITE. In the year 1S87 eight of tho get of Elec tioneer entered tho magic circle. They were Ansel, 2:20 Maiden, 2:23 Bell Boy, 2:20 Whips, 2:27% Old Nick, 2:23 Stella, 2:23% Clifton Bell, 2:24, anil Eros, 2:2S%. In the year 1888 thirteen of tho foals of Electioneer trotted to records in 2:30 or better. They were Elector, 2:21% Juno, 2:23 Gertrude Russell, 2:23 Azmoor, 2:24% Morea, 2:25 Arbutos, 2:27% Cubic, 2:28%: Express, 2:29% Grace Lee, 2:20% Ella, 2:29 the great 2-year-old Sunol, 2:18 Palo Alto Belle, 2:2S%, and Mortimer, 4-year-old, 2:27. The power of Electioneer to sire fast trot ters from all kinds of mares is especially noticeable, and his marvelous producing power is apparent in. the fact that from strictly thoroughbred mares he has sired fas* trotters, nor does it seem that his ability in this direction is confined to one class of thoroughbreds, or to mares of any certain lines of blood. Of the thirteen trotters by Electioneer this year, three were out of strictly thoroughbred dams. The list of his get from thoroughbred dams to date is Ansel, 2:20 (in a jog) Palo Alto, 4-year-old record 2:20% (quarter in 32 seconds) Gertrude Russell, 3-year-old record 2:23 Azmoor, 2:24% Whips, 2:27% Cubic, 2:28%, and Express, 2:29%. The development of extreme speed at an early age has been the aim ut. Palo Alto. The results are beyond the most sanguine hopes of tho friends of Electioneer, llinda Rose has a yearling record of 2:36%, which stood un challenged for six years. Norlaine, a grand daughter of Electioneer, holds the world's yearling record of 2:31%. Hinda Rose in 1S83 trotted to a 3-year-ohl record of 2:19%, which was undisturlied until 18S7, when it was beaten by Sable Wilkes, 2:18. Man zanita holds the 4-year-old record of 2:16, and tho nearest approach to it is Susie 8.'s mile ill 2:18. Wildflower, iu 1881, astonished tho world by trotting a 2-year-old record of 2:21, which was never approached until in 1888, Axtell, by William L., trotted in 2:23, while a fort night only elapsed until the 2-year-old Elec tioneer filly Sunol trotted in 2:20%, and a fortnight later in 2:18. This giv^s to Pale Alto the fastest yearling, 2-year-old and 4-year-old trotting records. Electioneer's roll of honor now embraces nine trotters with NORMA records in 2:20 or better, four with records better than 2:18. two with records better than 2:1?, twelve with records better than 2:33, and twenty-three with records in 2:25 or better, while only two of his entire num ber in the charmed circle have records as slow as 2:30, and all of this bas been accom plished in the short space of. one decade. It is necessary to write at. this length in regard to Electioneer, as he is the central figure at Palo Alto. There is also at Palo Alto the fastest sou of the famous Alrnont, Piedmont, 2:17%. pi» foals, especially those from daughters of Electioneer, are without exception of good MM, symmetrical conformation, high finish and excellent trotting action. There area few two year olds, but the greater number of them are yearlings, and from this union there will undoubtedly come some first class trotters. The yearlings by Norval, Ansel. Clay and other sons of Electioneer are also remarkably fine. They all act like trotters, and are vounxsters of substance and high finish, preserving in a great degree the Elec tioneer type. Nephew, 4-year-old record 2:36, is also in the Palo Alto stud. He is by Hambrino, 2:21X, dam Trotting Sister (dam of three horses which have sired 2:30 trotters), by Alexander's Abdallah second dam Lydi* Talbot (dam of Pacing Abdallah), sire of Bay Mate, 8:30. Hambrino is the sire of Wilkeebrino, 2:23 Hambrino Belle, 2:25% Hamdallah, 2:26% Ben Hur, 3-year-old rec ord 2:28, and Baroness, 2-year-old record 2:33. He is by Edward Everett, dam by Mam brino Chief. Nephew, prior to his recent installment at Palo Alto, has had but little opportunity in the stud, yet he has sired, mostly from mares of little quality, Bracelet (pacer), 2:21 Voucher, 2:22 Barney Horn, 2:23% Lottie M., 2:24 Baby Mine, 2:27 Lucilla, 2:28% Fred Arnold, 2:30% Ha Ha, 2:31, and Elite, 2:34. He is a grand horse, and will distin guish himself as a sire of game, courageous trotters. DAME WINNIE. There are at Palo Alto about 300 brood mares, which are being bred to Electioneer, Nephew, Piedmont and their sons, and to the sons of Gen. Benton. At Palo Alto great attention is paid to the mating sire and dam, with a view to con formation, temperament and gait. Indeed, this point is considered of paramount impor tance, even ranking above the mere question of blood lines. One theory is that a colt by a good sire out of a good dam will show speed according to its balance and friction less way of going, and bo places these points far above any mere question of breeding. Senator Stanford's theory is that extreme ef forts atan early age can only be sustained by great vigor, perfect conformation, a high nervous organization and a long, unbroken line of extreme speed inheritance. He finds these qualities to his greatest satis faction in choicely selected thoroughbred mares of certain families, and believes that his grand stallion will impart to them the trotting instinct and action. It is nonsense for any one to say they can detect the differ ence in trotting action between the foals by Electioneer from thoroughbred mares or those strictly trotting bred. This theory is rank heresy to the mere theorist in breeding, but pending their discussion of what some of them are pleased to call eccentricities, he goes on astonishing the world with his phenomenal record breakers. On this subject a writer in Tlie Horseman says: "Our own ideas concerning the selection of a trotter by Electioneer would be a colt from a mare with one trotting or pacing cross, and a long line of choice thoroughbred ancestry. When we first saw Norlaine we thought she was tho sweetest thing of animal creation, but when Sunol was placed by her side we saw even greater finish, fully as faultless con formation, and a sort of "hard as nails look," which excited our unqualified approval. Nor laine had all the grace and beauty, and the sweet, mild look of a fawn Sunol had the proud, self confident, reliant air of royalty, and in very truth she seemed in all respects a queen. It was this, together with her easy, elastic action, that induced us to pub licly predict that, if no accident occurred, she would break the 2-year-old record of 2:21. How grandly she has performed her task is known to the world. She has made three at tempts, the first early in the season in 2:25, the second early in October in 2:20%, the third a few days later in 2:18. What else Marvin [Senator Stanford's trainer] has in store as a surprise we are unaftle to pre dict. Last spring he stated to us that his ambition was to beat 2:30 with a yearling, to beat 2:18 with a 3-year-old, to beat 2.20 with a 2-year-old, and to reduce the 4-year-old rec ord below 2:15. This accomplished ho was willing to rest upon his laurels. "If he meets with no accident in the next two years we firmly believe ho will accom plish the task. People wonder that more Electioneers do not go into the 2:30 list, and that moro daughters of Electioneer do not produce. It should be remembered that there is practically but one trainer at Palo Alto, and that his sole aim and purpose is to secure each year some phenomenal youngster, and to that eiid all other considerations are sacrificed. We have seen at Palo Alto 2 and 3-year-olds from Electioneer mares which, without being in Marvin's hands, have shown quarters iu 30 to 37 seconds, and were then ordered by him to the stud or paddock. It would give us great pleasure to see a system atic effort made for two years to train all Palo Alto horses to a record better than 2:30 which show ability to train to such record." When Senator Stanford goes down to his country home it is his pleasure to sit in a large chair in the center of a ring aud see his favorite young flyers brought out for trial. It was while watching oue of these fast trot ters—an animal which had the enormous stride of twenty-three feet—that the million aire conceived the idea that in some part of his course the horse must entirely clear the ground and have all four feet in the air. So he decided to have bis horses photographed while in motion. Ho secured the services of a skillful photographer named Muybridge, who arranged an ingenious system of cam eras worked by electricity, by which an in stantaneous view of the animal was given ns he passed the home line. About $40,000 were spent on these experi ments but they overthrew all previous no tions on the subject, and the book which Stanford bad written and published, "The Horse in Motion," is a valuable contribution to science. Tho success of the Palo Alto farm has demonstrated that the climate of California is equal to that of Kentucky for the breeding of swift trotting and running stock. The rocent sale of Palo Alto trotting stock at the American Institute in New York city realized about $50,000. and many celebrated horses were sold. A Good Story About Forrest. Forrest on one occasion was rehearsing a tragedy and spoke to one of the "warriors" who entered in a slouching, undignified man ner: "Don't come on like that," he said, in a dis gusted tone, "but like this"—and, stepping into the wings, be showed him an impressive entrance. "But, Mr. Forrest," said the man, "if I could come on like you do you think 1 would bo working for eight dollars a week?" "Is that all you get!" asked Forrest, indig nantly. "Yes," answered the helmeted Thespian. "Well," exclaimed Forrest, walking away, "come on as you please 1" The Recent Trouble with Rob inson, of St. Louis. TIM KEEFE, OP THE NEW YORKS. What President Reach, of Philadelphia, Says About Johnny Ward aud His Pro posed Release—Tim Murnane, the Vet em naseball Writer and Player. The trouble over "Little Robby," of the St. Louis team, has made quite a stir. It only goes to show how much trouble a little thing will sometimes make. Before the game be gins Robinson sends a boy out of the grounds in St. Louis to get his baseball breeches, giving tho boy at the same timo note of readinis sion. When the boy comes back with the breeches he presents the note to Niehaus, who is at the gate,aud who refuses to admit him on Robinson's signature. Then Robinson gets his back up, cusses Niehaus, gets lined $2T, refuses to pay it, is backed up by tho team, and a general row eusues. Then the whole matter is settled, the St. Louis team gets advertised free gratis for nothing, and all is harmony. Robinson, however, is too good a man for the St. Louis team to part with. He is one of the best second basemen in the country. He was born in Philadelphia, and first played ball, in 1881, with the East Saginaw (Mich.) club in the Northwestern league. He then played with the Baltimore Unions. He has played on the St. Louis team for five years. WILLIAM ROBIN SOX. WHAT PRESIDENT BEACH SAID. It seems that President Reach of the Phila delphia club is not willing to pay $12,000 for Ward. "I would certainly like to have Ward," he said in a recent interview, "but the Philadelphia club will never pay $12,000 for his release. The New York club would no doubt like to dispose of W ar for $12,000, but I don't suppose any club will ever give them that much for bim. It would cost us $17,000 to get this player—$12,000 for his release and $5,000 for salary. policy to even start it Now, does any sane man believe that Ward or any-other player is worth that much to tho 'Philadelphia club? The day of enorm ous prices for players' releases is past. It was poor and if an end had not A. J. KEACH. been put to it there is no telling where it would have led to. Iiigh prices for players' releases and fancy salaries would have killed baseball in a very short time if measures had not been taken by the club owners all over the country to put a stop to it. "I see some jjeoplo say that if we had Ward wo would surely win tho pennant. If these same people who make tho.so assertions are so positive about it, let them purchase Wane's .release, and I will give them S 15,000 next fall if the Philadelphias win tho pen nant. Hero is a chance for somebody to mako $3,000 to back up his opinion. Now, if ho is afraid to risk his money, why should ho ask us to throw ours away? "Of course, these people would not make these unreasonable demands of us if they were in our place and knew the inside facts as well as \v: do. One man can never win a championship, and if we cannot win it with out Ward we could hot win it with him. Wo are uot as much in need of a short stop as several other clubs in the League, and even they" would not pay half the amount for Ward that New York asks for him. "The reason that tho price set on Ward was placed at such a high figure was not because of his superiority as a player (as theroare many players just as good as he), but because he is an intelligent man and would make a good manager for any club. Tho club that would use him as a player-manager could afford to pay twice as much for his release as we, because they would save a manager's salary by tho operation. We have a man ager, however, and it would bu throwing money away to purchase some player's re lease simply because he has demonstrated that ho could also manage a club. If people would only stop to think over these matters they would not make such unreasonable de mands of us.'- TIM KEEFE. Tim Keefe got what he asked for, and he ought to be correspondingly happy $4,500 for the season's work is no slouch of a figure for a pitcher, even if he is the best in the country. Still no one will say that Tim is not worth it to the New Yorks. As a matter of fact. however,the Giants will not lose much cash by the trans action, as some su perfluous talent has been released to make up the dif ference. Keefe was born in Cambridge. Mass., in 1 He played ball first with amateur clubs iu the vicinity of Boston. He made his professional debut in 1ST"), with tho Lewiston (Me.) club The next year he signed with the Our Boys club of Boston. In 1877 he went with the West bo ro club. TIM KKEKE. In 1S78 he was with the Clinton. Mass.. club, but finished in Utica, N He re mained with the Uticas until the summer of the next year, when he was induced by Man ager Mutrie to leave Utica and go to New Bedford. Mass. In 1S80 he opened with Albany and finished with Troy, wbere he stayed until IS82, when he went with the Metropolitans of New York. Then he began to gain celebrity as a pitcher. His reputa tion assumed such proportions that Manager Mutrie was so anxious to get him on the New York team that he hustled him ofT to Ber mudaand kept him there until he waseh-t ble to be .igned. For this smart bush-ess. Keefe was fined $.*00 by the American a^so ciatiou. Keefe has been with the New ork team ever since. TIS UURXAXE. It is said that Tim Murnane, the veteran baseball writer and player, was offered »h* other day the baseball editorship of The Chi Cago Tribune. I In 1370, says The SJXM ting Times, Mr. Slur nane played ball with locafclubs in Norwalk, West port and Stratford, Conn. In the win tar of '70 and '71 he went south and was con nected with The Savannah Advertiser, play ing ball iom the strong amateur club of that city. In the summer of *71 this southern team paid the north a visit, going as far east as Portsmouth, N. H. Ben Douglass, who was managing the Mansfields, of Middletown, Conn., induced Murnane to remain north and play with his team, where he remained until 1873, when he joined the Athlet ics, of Philadelphia. In '74 he was oue of the party who paid England a visit. and the following season found him a member of the Philadelphia team. In 1876 be went to Boston and was one Tin MUKNA-VE. of the members of the champion team in 1877. In '7S Manager Douglass induced him to leave Boston and go with the new Provi dence team the first year they were in the League. In '79 Mr. Murnane went with several old League players to Albany to form a club, but remained but a short time when the team was transferred to Rochester. In the fall of that season they took a trip through the west and went as far as California. Murnane then went into business in Boston and gave up the game until the Union association was formed and he was drafted into the business once more as manager of the Boston team in that association. In 1876 he organized the Boston Blues, of the New England League, and lo cated thern in Boston, where ho sold out his franchise to Walter Burnham in the summer of that season. He has done work for The New York Clipper, Police News and several other papers and is now the baseball editor of The Boston'Globe. There are not a dozen writers on our national sport who are so well equipped to analyze a ball game as is Tim Murnane. As a player ho never lost his head. As a writer he is always clear and judicial in his judgment. He calls a spade a spade, and he "knows a hawk from a handsaw." He is quick to detect the weak points of a player and is just as ready to say kind words where praise is merited. Tim Murnane has a legion of personal friends, and the baseball multitude are agreed that his opinions arc always worthy of consideration. He has brought out some of the best players in the country. WING WHISPERS. Mrs. Langtry will shortly dispose of all the scenery and properties of her various plays, prior to a long rest. Emma Abbott has contracted with a Phil adelphia firm for a monument to her hus band, Eugene Wetharell, that will cost $S5,000. It will be erected at Gloucester, Mass. It is composed of various kinds of marble. Beneath it will be a vault to con tain two bodies. Above is a canopy support ed by four columns of Gothic style, on the top of which is a figure of Hope. The whole is 54 feet high. Miss Abbott intends to have her body cremated, and her ashes will be placed near tho body of her husband.

Sporting men at New Loudon, Conn., are disappointed because of Harvard's probable withdrawal from the four mile 'varsity race on the Thames with Columbia next June. There is a tendency to censure the crimsons for their conduct in this matter, on two grounds chiefly. The first is because their refusal to row smacks of unfair dealings, as in the formal agreement between the two colleges for annual races the events are un derstood to be fixtures, unless either crew is unable to row, and Harvard is uot disabled, as she is to take a hand with Yale. —Philadel phia Times.
