THE SEBAXJA WEEKLY BAZOO. SEPTEMBER 30, 1890.
3 A FINE SHIPMENT. Eighteen Head of Carriage Horses and Trotters to be Shipped to San Antonio Texas To-night. By All Odds the Choicest Col lection of Horses That Ever Left the Stevens' Stud Farm A Description of the Animals. To-nigbt, at 9 o'clock, an Arms' palace car, containing eighteen head of the finest bred carriage horses ever sent to any market will leave ihe M., K. & T. stock yards for Sau Antonio, Texas. The snipment c imprises the pick of the E. W. Stevens' stud farm, including many winners of blue ribbons, among them the black and bay teams which won golden opinions at the state fair, an t the wonderful "gray" the most promis ing "green" horse in America, whose future history is destined to parallel that of Maud 8. and Jay Eye See. The majority of the horses, which Mayor Stevens ships t) Texas to-night are of his own breeding, the remain der being careful selections from the studs of other well known breeders. The collection, it can b8 said without fear of contradiction, is the finest shipment ever made from any state to another, barring neither the horsps from the blue grass regions of Ken- tuck or the thorough breds of Cali fornia. Mayor Stevens favors San Autonio as a market fur his hordes to any other market in the souih, or west, for the reason that good anima's are belter appreciated and more high'y valued there than elsewhere, he is not a stranger in i hat city either, and tbey should know that whatever Stevens says about a team or a horse can be depended upon. His reputa ion at hume has p.eceeded him, and his word there, as it is here, is as good as gold. A brief description of the horses which will leave Missmri to-night for Texas wi 1 be of interest to all horsemen and especially so to tne peo ple of this city where many of the an imals are so well known. First on list is the pair of blacks, " Tip " and "Pox" a handsome carriage team. Tip was sired by Illinois Chief and Fox by Al West. They are clorely matched in color, action and gait, are very attractive and stylish, attracting attention from all lovers of horse flesh wherever they have been shown. Only a short time ago 1,150 was re fused for them aud a much higher figure will h-ive to be offered before they can be purchased. The bay team " Ben " and " Tom" winners of the first premium at the Missouri State Fair, could scarcely be duplicated if one should seek the wide world over. They are half- brothers, their sire being Joe Elmo, and they are so evenly matched that it would take an expert to find a shade of difference in them. When they were driven onto the track at the state fair, before the prizes were awarded, Mr. Stevens was offered an even 61,000 for the team. He said his price was $1,500 and $1,495 would not touch them. Now he holds them at a much higher figure, and will get it. Ben can pull a buggy with two gentlemen in it a mile in 2:50 and never draw a long breath, and has been driven to a cart over a half mile track in 2:47. These six year old trotters can do a mile to gether in 3:21. Tbey are a wonder ful pair of horses and win the admir ation of all horsemen who have seen them. They are perfect models, and by all odds the best carriage team in this country.. They, like all of the horses handled on the Stevens stud farm, are thoroughly broken and can be safely handled by any one who can pull a ribbon. Chief, by Illinois Chief, is a big bay 16 hands high, for single surrey driv ing. He is a fine stepper, thoroughly broke and stylish. He has been han dled carefully and, although high strung, can be driven by any lady with perfect safety. Charlie N. is a beautiful five year eld chestnut sorrel. He may be called a general purpose horse, either for the saddle or harness, and is thor oughly broken. He has inherited the best qualities of his sire. He is very stylish, with clean neat limbs, with a forearm and muscles that show his breeding. He his paced a mile in 2:40, and any body can drive him. Another stylish horse is a handsome five year old roan, a combination ani mal for saddle or harness. He can out rack any horse in Missouri and can trot in 2:50 to harness. His color indicates indnrance and his legs speed and bottom. The "gray" horse, which has never been named, comes from good blood and was a fortunate purchase. His wonderful performance on a half mile track at Association park surprised his owner. Then he traced his pedi gree back, and found out something he never dreamed of he had pur chased a bonanza for almost a song. This six year old, without training, and never having been started in a race before, went into a large field and trotted a mile in 2:tS6. He wes a big colt then, but now with careful handling carries him self with surprising ease and with the grace of a smaller animal. His first and only race which he made in the time mentioned ws nude without a skip or a break, and. if he had been trained beforehand, could lmve dis tanced the field. It is a pity he is to be taken out of the state. Woodford Knox, Jr., a son of Woodlord Knox, is a blood bay aud a handsome as a doll ; he is six years old with full mane and tail and black points. He is not only stylish, but a prize winuer wherever he may enter into competi ion in his class. Queen,5' a chestnut sorrel mare, a beautiful animal, has many character istics of her sire, Alligro, who trotted a mile in 2:22. She is five years old, a good single driver, very styiiah, clean limb and a handsome mover. B'ack Prince, a six year old black gelding with three white feet and whire nose, is thoroughly broke to harness, has a fine gair, a good stepper and fine action. Anybody can drive him. The black mare Easter, is a perfect lady's horse, is thoroughly broke and will not scare at anything under any circumstance. She has four white feet and a bald face. She is known here as the beautiful Hambletonian mare and is frequently driven by Mrs. S evens, E.ister being her favoite driver. Tom, a handsome blood bay is a typical barouche horse, very kind and gentle and exceedingly stylish. Joe an 1 D in, b'ood bays, are little mnre than colt, beiug four years old, and are as beautiful a pair of carriage horses as ever wore harne-s. The7 aie 16 bauds high, half brothers by Drenon the 3d. They are thorough ly broken to harness and carefully trained. Edward A. is a beautiful bay horse, and, it is claimed, is a full brother to Sedalia Boy with a record of 2:17. He is a handsome barouche horse and by all odds the most attractive horse in the state. He stands 16 hands tall, with a high head and very s'ylisb. Prince, a seven year old chestnut aorreljs another favorite lady'o horse, as nandsome as a picture, a g od mover and a fine driver. Mefi is sure to find admirers every where ; he was sired by Woodford Knox and is a full brother to Willie F. with a trotting record of 2:13 and a pacing record of 2:19. Mrll was driven three heats by Mr. Gillman of this city in each of which he made a mile better than 2:45. When Baby was sick, we gaye her Castoria. When she was a Child, she cried for Castoria. When she became Miss, she clung to Castoria. When she had Children, she gave them Castoria. FIfiE ON WEST MAIN. An Early Morning Blaze Par tially Destroys a Machine Shop. A fire in the second story of Bar ley Bros. & Co., machine shops on West Main street, opposite the Far mers Holler mills, at 0.57 o'clock this morning called out the fire depart ment. The flames had full possess ion of the second floor when the fire companies arrived but the building was quickly delugedjwith water and the fire cofined to thai story. The second story wa? filled with finished work, rakes and harrows, and these together with the destruction of the roof of the building comprised the principal loss. The machinery on the first floor was slightly damaged by water. The total loss has not been estimated, but it will probably not exceed $1,500, How the fire started is a mystery. There was no fire used on that floor,tnd when William bcott, tne engineer, closed up the shops last night there was no fire under the boiler or in any of the stoves. The buildine and machinery were insured for $2,300 distributed as fol lows: Through H. Knapp's agency, Western of Toronton, $400 on build ing and $600 on machinery. Through xtitcney .Bros, agency, Citizens of Pittsburgh, $150 on build- m iner and $350 on machinery : Phoenix of Hartford, fiuu on building and $400 on machinery; North British and Mercantile Jbire lmurance, on machinery $300.

UNION LABOR PARTY Of Missouri, as Represented by the Blake and Alldredge Faction. In State Convention in This City, to Nominate a State Ticket. A faction of the Union Labor party of Missouri, known as the Alldredge, or Blake, faction, met in state conven tion, for the purpose of nominating a stae ticket, in ihe criminal court room of ihe Pettis county cur: Iwusf, t'is morning. Ti ere are two factiocs of the Union Lnbor party in Missouri and tbey are wide apart, apparently hopelessly apart. Oae fact ou is known as the Garland faction, from the iact that W. H. Grlaud, of St. Louis, is its leader and chairman of its state cen tral committee. This faction, the Garland faction, met in state conven tion at Jefferson City last month, adopted a platform, declared itself the only true Union Labor party iu Mis souri and nominated a state ticket. Its nominees Were O. A. IImintor, of Christian county, for supreme judge; Burwell Fox, of Washington county, for superintendent of public instructionjand Patrick Shan on, warehouse commissioner. Of these, Mr. Harrington is the only one that accepted, Messrs. Fox and Shanon declining. The faction that convened here to day met in response to a call issued by Capt. W. C. Alldredge, chairman of the state central committee. The call authorized the election of one delegate from every labor organiza tion and farmers' alliance m the state and one from each ward in St. Louis. As usual, in all conventions, there will be a contest for seats from St. Louis. There are some of the Gar land faction here from St. Louis, who will attempt to gain seats, capture the convention and endorse the Garland nominees. Delegates from the socialistic labor party, the nationalists, and a num ber of trades unions and assemblies of knights of labor, in St. Louis, met at Fourth aud Valentine streeta Wednes day night. They elected three delegates, Fred Westermeier, Aldolph Heppner and Phillip Good, " to represent the city of St. Louis n in the state conventiou but instructed the delegates to with draw if any other delegates from St. Louis were admitted. Before the delegates were elected nearly all the delegation present had withdrawn from the hall, except those from the socialists', nationalists and three or four unions that are composed principally of socialists. Members of the union labor St. Louis city eentral committee say that they do not see how the delegates elected at this meeting can be admit ted to the state canvention, as the call does not provide for any dele gates except those elected from the ware's and from individual unions. Such delegates have been elected, and left St. Louis last night for Seda lia, arriving here this morning. If the delegates from the wards and unions are admitted, the Blake-Garland fight will come up in the con vention. Mr. Garland said in a recent inter view : "All we want is to harmo nize the union labor party in the state. "We held a convention at Jefferson City which we consider to be the legal convention. Candidate! for the three state offices to be filled were nominated, bat only one ac Drop a Nickel hi your grocers hand and get a package of PYLE'S PEARLINE the original and best Washing Com pound. It will save you time, trouble, health, wear and tear, which cannot be computed in dollars. cepted, Mr. Harrington for the supreme judgeship. 41 We shall ask the Sedalia conven tion to iudorse Mr. Harrington and to fill out the other two vacancies on the t;cket. We shall do this for the sake of harmony, aud it the propositi n is accepted, there will be only one state labor ticket in the field. "In regard to the state central committee, we are willing to give the county delegates control of that." The Blake faction, however, will oppose any recognition whatever of the Garland ticket or committee. Thecouventiou was called to order at 10:30 o'clock this morning, by Capt. W. C. Al dredge, ot Moniteau coun'y ! chairman of the state central co .: 1 inittee, who rtad the call for the con J vention. ! The first thinj in order being the t selection of a temporary chairman, j Frank McAllister, of Sedalia, was nominated and unanimously chosen, amid cheeis. Oil taking the chair, he made a neat speech of thanks and was liberally applauded thereon. For tempo rary secretary, half a dozen were out in nomination It finally narrowed down to two and one of them, S F. B.ynton, of Newton county, was chosen. A motion was nude that the dele- sratf-s from each congressional district meet ia separate groups and, after mn. til taiou, roport two PrtTTlTTlifctPf. men irom eacn district, one ou per manent organization and credentials and one on resolutions. The motion prevailed and the delegates separated into groups. At; this point, a delegate from St. Louis, one of the three elected from the city, at large, and understood to be Garland men, stated that there was a contest from St. Louis and moved that the three St. Louis dis tricts be passed over in the selection of committeemen. Mr. Swain, of St. Louis, opposed the motion and bitter ly denounced the three delegates who were elected from the city at large and denied their light in the convention. The motion was de feated. Mr. Swain then moved that all disputes as to credentials be left to the committee on credentials; car ried. The several districts then reported their commiteemen, as follows : Third On resolutions and organiza tion, J. E. Holt; on credentials, J. E. Holt. Fourth On resolutions and organ ization, B. F. Dragoo; on creden tials, B. F. Dragoo. Sixth On resolutions and organiz ation, S. A. Wright ; on credentials, J. B. Hedges. beventh On resolution and organ ization, G. S. Bowles; on credentials, G. S. Bowles. EighthOn resolutions and organ izatieD, G. J. O'Reilley; on creden tials, H. Ball. Ninth On resolutions and organ ization, W. C Thornton ; on creden tials, W. A. Stebben. Tenth on resolutions and organiz ation, N. Eaaton: on credentials, C. Shadmeier. Twelfth on resolutions and organi zation, F. W. Trader; on credentials, J. W. Ham an. Thirteenth on resolutions and or ganization, S. F. Boyden : on creden tials, D. M. Cowan. The First. Second, Fifth, Eleventh and Fourteenth,districts were not rep resented. The convenfion then took a recess until 1 o'clock, in order to give the committees time to prepare their re ports. Itwas2;10 when the convention; reassembled after dinner. i The committee on credentials report ed three delegates from the third, three from the fourth, two from the fifth, fifteen from the sixth, three from the seventh.two from the eighth, ten from theninth,five from the tenth, one from the Eleventh, eighteen from the Twelfth and six from the Thir teenth congressional districts present ; total, sixty-eight. It also reported in favor of seating W. H. Blake, a dele Kate from St. Louis, and against seat- ing Hepner, Good and Westheimer, ths three delegates elected irom tne City of St. Louis at large. A minor ity of the committee on credentials re ported against seating W. H. Blake. At this juncture, Mr. Blake took the floor and spoke at length in his defend, He was answered byffcSecre tary Boyden. At fair o'ebek, the report of the conmrttee on credent'als was still under consideration. A P L a ASANlT AFFAIR. Bev. Father Graham Celebrates His Hirer Jubilee To-day, Id St Joseph Mo.
