AMONG THE HORSES. Incorrect Statements About the Twin City Driving and Jockey Club. Jack Chirm Tries to Cut a Man to Pieces at a Race Course, For Which He Is Ruled Off the Course— Out on Bail. George W. Sherwood's Sales— The Union Race Course Obliterated. There is liable to be a collapse in the near future, and the Twin City driving and Jockey club will be lost in the shuffle. This club has held together tor some time, yet nothing has been accomplished, either pecuniarily or otherwise, and the stock has never paid a divi dend. Many of the stockholders are crowing tired at the way the thing has been manipu lated, and are willing, and even anxious, to drop out, even at a sacrifice. Something has been lacking, and no one has been taiisfied. Perhaps it is poor management. No matter whether it is or not, the fact remains that the Twin City Driving and Jockey club has never proved a sucecss. It is strange, too, situated as it is, directly between two large cities, aud where the patronage ought to be immense. The meetings put up there every year, however, have not warranted any large patronage, and have not received it; consequently, it is not strange that the ex chequer is raiher low and everybody dis gusted. Something in the neighborhood of $1,000 was lost on the July meeting, and had it not been for the greater attraction of the fair, which drew the crowds to see the races, their last meeting would also have left a trail . behind. The above appeared in the Minneap olis Tribune, two or three weeks ago, and was copied into the Chicago Horse man and several Eastern papers. The statements in regard to the probable collapse of the Twin City Driving and Jockey club are not true. There is no such probability. No similar organiza tion in the United States stands on a more permanent and substantial founda tion. The stockholders comprise some of the wealthiest men in Minne apolis and St. Paul, and represent an amount of money that runs up into the millions. The association is not in debt, and consequently there Is no pos sibility for a "collapse." The statement that "nothing has" been accomplished either pecuniarily or otherwise"' is not true. Everything aimed at by the asso ciation has been accomplished, viz.: to have a good trotting meeting at Ham line in July. No better trotting meet ing has been held at Hamliue than the one held by this organization last July. This association was formed by gentle men engaged in business. They de pend on their regular business to make what money they desire, and not upon horse-racing for their income. With this idea in view they organized the as sociation for sport and pleasure. They admire trotters, arid have never ex pected or intended to maintain the or ganization as a money-making scheme. If the receipts paid expenses they were satisfied. Mr. Oswald and Mr. Pillsbury, and other Minneapolis gentlemen, and Mr. Beaupre, Capt. Marrat, Mr. Eaton and other business men of* St. Paul, did not go into horse racing as a business opera tion and for the purpose of making money. When the writer of the above extract states that "Many of the stock holders are growing tired of the way the thing has been manipulated," he casts an unwarranted slur upon those who stand among the very best men in the two cities for character, business, and in every other respect. President Oswald anil Mr. Pillsbury, of Minne apolis, have not "manipulated" this organization, nor have they allowed anyone under them to "manipulate" it. Nor is it true that "many of the stock holders are anxious to drop out, even at a sacrifice." Members in St. Paul who have been interviewed upon the subject have never heard of such a thing, and have not the slightest idea of dropping out. They see no occasion for any such move. They propose to go right along as before and hold a meet ing next summer, and have a good one, too. The statement that $1,000 was lost at the last meeting is not true. The association did not fall behind finan cially at its last meeting. JACK CHINN AGAIN. He Makes a Murderous Assault With a Dagger at a Kentucky Race Course. A great many people in St. Paul will remember Jack Chirm, the gambler and well known sport, who, eight or ten years ago had gambling rooms here in St. Paul, and who displayed his money freely and cut a mighty swath. At Covington, Ky., about a week ago he attacked a man with a dagger and would have cut him in pieces had not bystanders interfered. The correspond ent of the Spirit of the Times gives the following account of the affair: "After the fourth race, when the betting quar ters were crowded with people, a regu lar panic suddenly took possession of the crowd, and a violent rush from the ring ensued, men crowding, jostling and trampling each other as if a band of armed cowboys were slaughtering those inside. The cause of the frenzied stampede was the fact that weapons were drawn, and that a gleaming dagger was used with murderous intent, but, fortunately, with comparatively harmless effect. When the excitement had subsided the followiug particulars were gleaned: J. M. Dowling, a bookmaker hailing from Chicago, was examining through his glasses odds on the various slates with a view to putting on some money. While so engaged. Jack Chirm, the well known turf mail and sporting man, came up behind him and drawing a dagger that had been concealed somewhere on his person he plunged it into Bowling's right arm, near the shoulder. Dowling then turned round, and while doing so Chirm made another lunge at him with the gleaming weapon, this time in the direction of the heart, but the blade only penetrated the clothing. Dowling then staggered and fell, when Chirm made another onslaught. At this juncture It. Tucker, the trainer and owner, a friend of Dowling, grabbed Chirm by the arm and telling him he must desist from the murderous work. Chirm then turned on Tucker, and, as is said, threatened to kill him also if he interfered, when Tucker drew his pistol and pointed it at Chirm. Just then., before either knife or pistol could be used, W. 11. Laudeman got hold of Chiun and dragged him away, when order was restored. Chirm and Tucker were shortly afterwards arrested, but released on bond, and Dowling was conveyed in a carriage to a ', bouse close by, where the flow of blood was stopped. He was subsequently taken to his hotel in Cincinnati, where the wound In the arm was sewed up. He fainted from loss of blood, but is now nearly all right again, the wound not being of a serious nature. A meeting of the executive committee of the Jockey club was held that even ing, when Chirm, Tucker and Dowling were suspended from the privileges of 1 lie track pending an investigation. A lull investigation was held next day, all the parties implicated, as well as others, submitting testimony, and the result was that Chirm. was ruled off, Tucker fined 1900 and suspended for the balance of the meeting, while Dowling was ex onerated and reinstated. And now for the cause of the trouble. It dates a long way back— seven or eight years, I believe— when Chirm and Morgan were running a faro bank in St. Paul. Dowling went up there from Chicago and, with a partner, opened a rival establishment. Very soon his place was raided and closed, and he at tributed the collapse as being prompted by his rivals. Subsequently. Chirm se cured an interest in a Chicago gambling house, and, as the story goes, he soon had to quit, caused by the active influ ence and opposition of Dowling. All this time there had been bad blood be tween the two men, which culminated in the manner stated. Jack Chirm is known all over the country, and is generally liked, his manners being of the free-and-easy, bonhomie kind. Indeed, he is one of the boys when there is anything jolly and hilarious going on. Possibly he has been of late a little too fond of the cup that more than cheers, and it is pretty certain he was not entirely sober when he attaked Dowling on Friday. He was prominently identified with the turf a couple of years ago, being in partner ship with George Hankins. He was and is also interested in the Leonatus Stud near Harrodsburg, Ky. 1 am not sure that fortune has smiled on him of late as it did a few years ago. Dowling is one of the best known of Chicago's sporting men, is now a book maker and quite wealthy. His manners are pleasant and taking, and he is said to wield more or less political influence in Chicago. He is well connected and one of his brothers is the Catholic bish op Toronto. Tucker is a successful horse owner and trainer, ordinarily quiet and non communicative. He is the employer of the famous light-weight, Barnes, and has made a good deal of money on the turf. While singularly quiet and peace able, he is said to be a lighter, should occasion or provocation arouse him to the belligerent point. He has had busi ness relations with Dowling. and when be got married in Saratoga last summer Dowlins and his wife "stood up" with him in the Catholic church there. The Erdenheim Sale. Horsemen everywhere are now look ing forward to the great Erdenheim sale that is to take place the Bth of next month. Six stallions are to be sold that are among the foremost thoroughbred stallions in the land. These are Alarm, sire of Panique, Hemyar, Gabriel, Breeze.

A special train will be run from New York on the day of the sale, of wliich due notice will be given. Catalogues can be obtained on application to S. I). Bruce", P. O. box 30-, New York city. Some Fine Stock. There is a fine four-year-old gelding at King's stables, corner of Fourth and Minnesota streets, that has been attract ing the attention of horsemen during the past week. This colt is by Alex ander, out of Drift, by Alcalde, by Mambrino Chief: second dam Snow bird, by Steele's Snowstorm; third dam by Copperbottom ; fourth dam by Black burn's Whip. He is a promising young fellow, handsome, speedy, gentle, and will be an acquisition for a gentleman as a roadster. Col. De Graff has several geldings and young mares by Alexan der and Railroad at the barn in matched teams and single drivers that he calls the attention of purchasers to. During the season there has been often noticed upon the street a fine, black matched team, be longing to Mrs. Minnie De Graff Ber key. These mares are by Railroad, son of Alexander. Railroad's first dam was Roving Nelly, the dam of Mambrino Boy, the sire of the dam ofthe two-year old Axtell, that trotted on the Minne haha track In 2:24. Parties desiring to visit the Lake Elysian stock farm, by telegraphing or writing Alexander Gunn, superintendent, will be met at the station and taken to the farm. Rollins, Perry & Co. This firm, that has its headquarters at Decorah, 10., has made its fifth im portation this season of thirty-six fine thoroughbred draft stallions, and they are now comfortably quartered in the new iron barn, near Water street, De corah. These horses were carefully se lected by J. C. Rollins, a veteran horse man, for the breeders of the Northwest. They constitute a very superior lot, and it would be greatly for the advantage of all stockmen that are breeding this species of snimals to examine them and send for a catalogue. They consist of Cleveland bays, English Shires and French Normans. These animals, though selected for breeding purposes, are for sale, and consequently no one need to want for the best. A Benson Breeder. H. W. Stone, of Benson, Minn., though not a professional breeder, has some good horses on his farm near Benson. He has a filly by S. A. Bell, brother to Bell Boy, 2:20, a yearling by Marrett's Nutwood Mambrino; a filly by Mr. Merriam's San Gabriel, and a filly by Masterlode, Jr. In addition he has a number of brood mares of a very choice quality and a large number of well-bred Shetland ponies. Mr. Stone is engaged in the banking business and keeps these fine animals for his pleas ure and amusement. A Famous Race Course. Those who admire good horses, and especially those who lived in or around New York twenty-five or thirty years ago, will learn with regret that the old Union race course is left there only in memory. The stroke of the hammer and the grating of the saw are now heard on the historic ground where the click of the shoes of Eclipse, Sir Henry, Boston and Fashion was heard in 1523 and in 1840. Old horsemen have seen the celebrated Flora Temple and other horses equally noted flying around the track. The faces of Hiram Woodruff, John McMahon, the Dwyers and others could be seen there, ln the heyday of its prosp rity the Union course was patronized by the elite of the city, and it is estimated that 70,000 persons at tended the race between the Virginia ! bred horse Boston, and New Jersey i mare Fashion, and that upward of $200, --1 000 changed bands on that occasion. ! But Benjamin 11. Hitchcock, the pur , chaser of the property, has ruthlessly cut it up it up into building lots. Local Horse Notes. George W. Sherwood has made the ' following sales from his Sheldon stock | farm: To E. C. Clark. Cadott. Wis., ' Maud, bay mare, foaled 1881 by Walter ! Farris, dam said to be by Green's ; Bashaw. To William Schutte, St. Paul, I bay mare Fable, foaled 1883, dam Mollie | Martin, by Old Mack, 2:31%.

Minn., the brown colt Highroad, by Herod, dam Jane, by Trample. Miscellaneous. The four-year-old stallion Brown, record 2:18%, that went lame during the breeders' meeting in this city, is slowly recovering, but will not take part in any more races this season. He is owned by J. I. Case, and the other noted horses that aire the property of that gentleman, Jay-eye-see and Phallas among the number, are reported in the best of health. Bither thinks that Jay eye-see will be ready for business again next year. Phallas was exhibited.at St. Louis last week. _££•$ Breeders' Gazette: The stallion Pilot Medium, whose get have been winning so many races this year, was sold to his present owner for for 8125, having a spavin and being deemed of little ac count. Now his colts bring fancy THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 15, 1888. prices. Girflue, the three-year-old by Pilot Medium that Peter Johnston gave a record of 2:28 Vat the Wisconsin state fair, will probaoly be bought by Chicago parties within a few days, the price to be paid being 13,000. Viking, 2:2o>£, by Belmont, and out of the famous Pilot, Jr., mare Water wich, trotted a -mile over a half-mile track at Tilton, N. H., recently In 2:22, which was a great performance in view of the fact that he had just closed a heavy season in the stud, having, as Is the case with most stallions that are trotting-bred and whose speed has been developed and publicly shown, all the mares that his owner cared to breed him to. "Mambrino," whose right name is H. D. McKinney, has a right to be proud of his stallion Phaliamont, a son of Phallas, as his get were first in all the stakes of the Wisconsin Breeders' As sociation trotted during the state fair in Milwaukee. Phaliamont Girl, the crack three-year-old of the McKinnev stable, can trot in 2:20, and the others are good ones of their age. Diabolo, a son of Eolus, that has already won stakes to the value of $14,000 this year, cost his present owner less than $500 last winter, being deemed of little account. As the get of Eolus generally train on, it is expected that Diabolo will cut a prominent figure in the handicaps next season. At the combination sale at Lexington, Kv., last Thursday, Lady Bunker, dam of Guy Wilkes, 2:15%, fifteen years old, by Mambrino Patchen, dam by Amer ican Star, was sold. The sale started at $1,500, and quickly ran up to $6,500, at which figure she went to Garret Long, of Buffalo, N. Y. A. A. Bonner has purchased Volmer, 2:14%, by Gambetta, by Volunteer, and will send him to Kentucky to remain next season in the stud. Arab beat Stamboul and Lot Slocum at Stockton, Cal., Sept. 20.

In response to many inquiries, the Elmo Park Company announces its purpose of first offering its lots in "Elmo Resi dence Park" for sale ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1888, _t 10 a. m., at the office ofthe company, Room 252 Drake Block, St. Paul. Until that date no lots will be sold, or contracted to be sold, in order that all may have an equal chance for a first choice.. The prices of these lots have been fixed, and a printed price-list, together with a lithograph copy of the plat, will, after a few days, be furnished on application. ,-.. For three years the Elmo Residence Park scheme has re ceived the careful study of the ablest specialists in Landscape Art and Civil Engineering. Prof. H. W. S. Cleveland was given charge, and sent by the company to the East to visit all the prominent residence parks there for the purpose of securing every valuable feature for this park. Benezette Williams, the Eminent Civil Engineer of Chi cago, who designed and constructed the water and sewerage system of Pullman, 111., which is renowned for its completeness, is perfecting the plans for a similar system for Elmo Residence Park, which will be pushed to completion in time to meet the demands of those building. The Elmo Park Company has platted 330 of the 750 acres owned by it at Lake Elmo. About 150 acres bordering the lake are to be inclosed, and will be known as -'Elmo Residence Park." It is believed that no residence park scheme of equal complete ness in all its details has ever before been offered. About 180 acres north of the railroad are platted as the town site of Elmo. The Park now has within its limits the Elmo Park Hotel, com pletely equipped in every particular, with its Electric Light Plant, Steam Laundry, Stables, Capacious Cold Storage House, etc., besides the Finest and Largest Fleet of New Cedar Boats ever provided for a lakeside hotel. The lots average about a Half-Acre in size, and it is the purpose of the company to furnish the residents within the Park with every convenience for home life which they would secure in the best part of the city. A strip about 100 feet wide along the lake front is reserved for the common benefit of all lot owners. About thirty well-known gentlemen of St. Paul have ap plied for lots in the Park, and many signify their intention of building next spring. Some will build Summer Cottages, but more will build Permanent Homes. Such restrictions will be made in selling lots as will secure a fine class of residences. No other buildings will be allowed in the Park except in the stable quarters, where private stables may be built by those not desiring to use club stables. '' I The Elmo Park Hotel will hereafter be practically a Club House for the use of those residents of the Park who prefer to take their meals at the Hotel. It will continue, however, to in vite such guests during the summer months as have patronized it so liberally for the past three summers, and assisted in making it a very delightful resort.
