The death of the late Commodore Kitt
son furnishes a fruitful source of com
ment to the Eastern papers, especially
to those devoted to the , breeding of
horses. This is very natural as Mr.
Kittson spent a large portion of his time
in the East, and was well and personally
acquainted with Mr. Bonner and all
other leading gentlemen connected with
the turf, including the editors and pro
prietors of the principal turf journals of
the country. In speaking of his death
the Chicago Horseman speaks as fol
lows:
One of the most remarkable and pro
gressive men of the great Northwest
passed suddenly away on Thursday, May
10. Commodore N. W. Kittson was one
of those grand, self-made men. whose
marvelous energy and far-reachine con
fidence in the unlimited capacity of the
mighty West enabled him not "only to
build up a colossal fortune, but also to
Invest it wisely in great public enter
prises which * developed and consolU
dated the prosperity of the vast section
with which bis name was so thoroughly
identified. Mr. Kittson was born
in the Province of Quebec of
a good family, his grandfather
having served under Gen. Wolfe
at the famous siege of Quebec. Between
the far-oil province and the Northwest
ern territories there has always been
the close affinity which a similarity of
climate engenders, and in spite of the
immense distance between them there
has always been a steady immigration
westward. Full of ambition young Kitt
son when sixteen years old turned his
back on the old French province, and as
an employe of the American Fur com
pany he arrived at Fort Sneiling in 1834.
With an energy which never tired, and
a determination which never failed, he
advanced the interests of the com
pany, and in a few . years he
became a partner. During this
period he would traverse hundreds
of miles on snow shoes, or with dog
sleighs, through the district which is
now supplied with excellent transporta
tion by the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba railroad. He went into busi
ness for himself, and prosperity at
tended him. Recognizing the want of
transporting facilities on the Bed River
he established a line of steamers, which
proved immensely successful, But the
financial coup of his business career
was in connection with the reorganiza
tion of the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba railroad, from which he
realized a magnificent fortune. in his
amusements Mr. Kittson was as
thorough as he was in his business pur
suits. Always an admirer of both the
thoroughbred and the trotter, having
unlimited wealth, and leisure to enjoy
it, he determined to indulge his passion
for blooded stock.
He purchased the celebrated thor
oughbred stock farm Erdenheim, near
Philadelphia, formerly the property of
Aristidt s Welch, and began breeding
and training on a large scale. At Mid
way, between Minneapolis and St. Paul,
Minn., he established a stock farm for
trotters, and purchased for racing pur
poses some of the most sensational per
formers of their day. He bought Little
Brown Jug, Z'.llfi, for $17,000; John
ston, 2M',X, for $20,000, the latter mak
ing his great record after his purchase.
lie bought Pilgrim, $13,000; Yon Arnim,
10,000; So So, 2:17^, $10,000; Fanny
Witherspoon, 2:16%, $8,000, and other
fast public performers. In the va
rious, breeders' organizations he
»as always active in word
md deed, being keenly alive
to every movement which would pro
mote the honor and popularity of the
:urf. Conscious of failing health, he
had decided to sell his entire trotting
stud. The deceased gentleman was for
some years in the legislature of Minne
sota, and bad the honor of being elected
nayorof St. Paul. He leaves behind
him a family to mourn his loss, and a
/ast circle of friends who will never
forget the indomitable energy, the im
mense business grasp, the large-hearted
generosity and the commanding ability
if the man who was essentially one of
he grand pioneer generals of the great
West. -
Death of Norman W. Kittson.
Turf . Field and Farm.
Thursday night, May 10, while on
toard a train on his way to St. Paul,.
Jommodore Norman W. Kittson, whose
tealth has been feeble for some time,
[Uietly breathed his last. He was about
seventy-five years old. and at the age of
sixteen he went to Minnesota in the
service of John Jacob Astor. His ex
periences as a trader in what was then
i wilderness sharpened his faculties
tnd made him a man of sturdy
character. After leaving the service
it' Mr. Astor he entered that of the
Hudson's Bay company and remained
ftith it until 1874. His fortune was
argcly made out of the St. Paul &
Pacific railroad. In ISSI he began to
nvest in horses, and his expenditures
imounted to about $200,000 in that year.
\t St. Paul he founded an extensive
ight harness breeding establishment,
md at Philadelphia he owned Erden
leitn. which he bought 111 1882 from
Vristidcs Welch, and improved. Com
nodore Kittson was more partial to
rotters than to runners, and his power
ul stable, under the management D. W.
rVoodmansee, was once a ruling factor
n the battles of the Grand Central cir
:uit. Among- the horses owned by him
vere Fanny Whitherspoon, Yon Arnim,
30-So, Blackwood, Jr., Lady Roife, Little
frown Jug and the great pacer John
don. The thoroughbreds were man
ured by Maj. J. S. Hubbard, and the
Srdenheim colors were popular on the
.inf. Commodore Kittson was not a
letting man. He did not use his horses
is instruments of speculation, but sim
>ly to gratify bis love of sport. He was
in old man when he engaged in the
ireeding and racing business, but he
oliowed it with the zest of youth. His
sterling integrity made him an honor to
►oth branches of the turf. lie was one
if the men that we would like to always
lave with us, but nature does not work
hat way. His death, with its tragic
:olor, is very widely regretted. He was
luce times married, arid has left a large
SamilyJ
A SHOBT BUT FEELING TKIBCTE.
Walter T. Chester, the compiler
»f the vety valuable work known as
'Chester's Complete Trotting and Pae
jig Record," publishes in the Turf,
held and Farm, a few words in relat
ion to the deceased, in which he fur
fishes an illustration of the way in
vhich Mr. Kittson seized hold of 'men
md held them without any apparent
sffort, and also how ready he was to
alee hold and help any one that needed
issistance. The following are Mr.
Chester's words:
In the death of Commodore N. W
Kittson, of St. Paul, horse interests
both thoroughbred and trotting, have
suffered a great loss, nts almost un
imited means enabled him to be as
princely in his purchases and expendi
tures as he was princely by nature. I.
hall never forget the extremely kind
etter sent me by Commodore Kittson |
shortly after he had received and exam- j
ned a copy of my original work, for
vhich he had subscribed in advance.
Vmong other things, he said: "I only |
>arlly express my pleasure in saying, i
that I am greatly pleased with the work.
It is beyond dispute by far the complet
est work of the kind ever published. I
shall call on our horsemen and see if I
cannot order more copies from you."
The idea of the richest man in the
Northwest voluntarily constituting him
self a book agent, so to speak, for a
struggling compiler! But it was char
acteristic of the man, with whom, at the
time, I had no personal acquaintance.
He was eminently practical, and had no
false pride.* 1 remember that a check
for four copies speedily followed his
first letter.and in many ways since have
1 been conscious of the effects of his
kind words.
The Horses to Be Sold.
The sale of the horses at Midway that
was partly arranged for by the late
Commodore Kittson before his death, it
has been determined by the trustee and
executor to have take place on the 27th
day of June next. In the meantime an
order from the probate court will be ob
tained authorizing the sale, so that
everything will be regular and properly
anthorizea. D. W. Woodmansee, who
has been retained by the trustee and
executor as the manager, the same as
he was under the late Commodore
Kittson, is making all the necessary ar
rangements for the sale, and all in
quiries about the sale or the stock can
be directed to him at St. Paul,
Good Advice From Mr. Grattan.
To the Editor of the Globe.
The nominations in the four colt
stakes to be trotted at Rochester in Sep
tember are certainly creditable to the
breeders of road horses in Minnesota.
Secretary Van Campen is much pleased
with the "list, but fears that as in the
past they will all drop out but one or
two in each class, leaving small fields in
which the crowd will take little interest.
In that event he says his association
will regret having opened the stakes. j
Much of this dropping out is the result I
of wild talk about the speed of some
particular colt, and Secretary Van I
Campeu desires me, in the Globe, to I
protest against it as detrimental to the
interests of all., A breeder must be pre
pared to make some sacrifices to make
colt trotting a success.. The winner
must have a background to show against
and we must all take our turn at fur
nishing that part of the entertainment.
But the fact is that colts that might
have won are often dropped out, be
cause of some exaggerated stable rumor
or paper trotter. Again a fast colt often
loses by bad acting, or goes amiss or
possibly never was fast, only lived
about For my part 1 would rather take
defeat in & race than to wilt beforehand !
from fear. Defeat by a shadow is a
greater disgrace than the flag, and a i
colt that is dropped out shows worse for
its sire than does the last colt in the j
actual race. Let us all score up for the
word, then, gentlemen, and take our
medicine, because it is good for us and
will strengthen our trotting constitu
tions. M. T. G.

lowing foals at his stock farm, Sheldon,

Local Horse Notes.
R. C. Judson, secretary of the Breed
ers' association, writes to the Globe,
and states that "the following entries
to the breeders' stakes came to hand
after the entries had been forwarded to
you for publication: J. V. V. Lewis,
Hutchinson, one entry in Slake 6 and
one entry in Stake 9; George Spear,
Minneapolis, one entry in Stake 4; F.
A. Sabine, Lake City, one entry in
Stake 2, one entry in Slake 7, and one

chestnut mare Maty, by Herod, dam by
Albion, g. d., the Hudson mare ;g also
the bay mare Jennie, by Combination,
son of Herod, dam Mary, by Herod, g.
d., by Albion. Mr. Hughes intends to

ship them with his Herod colts to his
place at Spokane Falls, W. T.
Favori, the French coach horse re
cently pmrchased by A. K. Barnnm, is
now standing for mares at Mat Balfour's
stables on Selby avenue.
D. W. Woodmansee has been re
tained as manager of the stables at Mid
way by the executors.
The sale of the horses of the late Com
modore Kittson will take place on the

Miscellaneous.
Now that Norlaine is dead and gone
Marvin is not slow to tell what a won
derful filly she was, and it is no secret
that he expecied this season to beat with
her the 2:21 of Wildflower, made as a
two-year-old, and that has for so many
years stood at the top of the tree for
performances by trotters of that age.
Another one of whom Marvin had great
hopes was Manzanita, and it was his
idea that she would go a mile this year
in 2:12. The injuries she received at
the Palo Alto lire were not dangerous,
although severe, and it is probable that
she will soon be able to take regular
work.
William 11. Doble, father of Budd
Doble, whose name is a familiar one
wherever the trotter is . known, is now
seventy-six years old, and . as lively .as
most men at sixty. At the opening of
the Suffolk Park races at Philadelphia
last week Mr. Doble was present and
enjoyed the sport. At present the old
gentleman is keeping a road house on
Belmont, avenue, Philadelphia. He has
driven horses in races until the present
season.
H. M. Smith, of the Fashion farm, is
to breed the famous dam Lucy, 2:lBJ£,
Barney, brother to Opal, 2:23, this
spring. Lucy is now thirty-two years
old. Green Mountain Maid is twenty
six. She is in foal to Messenger Duroc.
Miss Russell and Addie are twenty-five.
Both of them are in foal to Electioneer.
Maid of Clay is thirty-two. She has not
had a foal, however, since 1881, but was
bred last season. Lady Fashion dropped
George B when she was twenty-eight.
Augusta Schuyler, record 2:20, made
last fall, is to be bred to Chimes, a full
brother to Bell Boy and Hiuda Rose, he
being by Electioneer, dam Beautiful
Bells, by The Moor.and the result of the
union will be a colt of wonderful blood
lines so far as producing capacity is
concerned, as Augusta Schuyler is a
daughter of the famous mare Emeline,
six of whose sous and daughters are in
the 2:30 list.
Ed Bither, with his string of ten good
ones from Hickory Grove farm, Racine,
Wis., the home of Phallas, has arrived
at Freeport, 111., for the purpose of put
ting his horses in shape for fast work.
So far this season the weather and going
has been such that he has not had an
opportunity to extend his flyers.
The first colt got by the California
stallion Stamboul, 2:liy, won a race
tor two-year-olds at Los Angeles not
long ago, which shows how precocious
the family it, as it is probably unheard
offer a six years Qld to have a two
year-old daughter that is a winner.
W. 11. Crawford, of Lexington, Kv.,
has purchased of I*, L. and F. D.
Stout, of Dubuque, 10., for $9,000 the
bay stallion Sentinel Wilkes, 2499,
foaled IS3-2, by George Wilkes 519, dam
Saturette, by Sentinel 280; second dam
by Bolivar, a whip horse.
The trotting stallion, Voting Smug
gler, owned by John W. Bines, of Kent
county, Maryland, died a few days
since. He was twelve years old, sired
by Smuggler, dam Parepa Rosa, by An
drew Jackson, and had a record of

REPORTS.
From Superintendent of Fire Alarm-
To the Honorable Board of Fire Com
missioners of the City of St. Paul.
Gentlemen: I respectfully report
that the working of our telephone
service is very much interfered" with
between the hours of 5 and 12 p. m.,
caused by the induction from electric
light wires, which are placed in
close- proximity to our wires
in many places, namely, on East
Seventh, Wabasha, and Dakota avenue.
While there is an ordinance requiring
all wires to be placed under the lire
alarm wires, it has not always been
done, as the electric light wires in
many places have been put up by con
tractors who do the work in a cheap
and careless manner, and not comply
ing with the ordinance requiring tne
said companies to consult the superin
tendent of the fire alarm telegraph be
fore stringing the wires, the crossing
over and v inter of our wires by them in
many places leaving just enough room to
clear them causes interruptions and
interferences with our fire alarm wires.
I would recommend that the line on
Seventh street, between Jackson and
Broadway, be rebuilt with longer poles,
as it is now short poles and the electric
light poles on opposite sides of the
street and at crossings are much longer
poles than ours. Respectfully,
I. R. Jenkins.
Superintendent of Fire Alarm Tele
graph.
On motion report accepted, adopted
and recommendations concurred in.
and the superintendent was instructed
to replace the present poles with longer
ones on Seventh street between Broad
way and Jackson. On motion the
Board directed that a communication be
forwarded to the Common Council, call
ing atention to the present workings of
the department telephones which are
being interfered with by electric light
wires, and asking that an ordinance be
passed requiring all companies to pro
cure a permit from the Superintendent
of Fire Alarm Telegraph before con
structing or repairing lines, so that they
will not interfere with the department
system.
