Audubon Boy, 1:59 1/4, was shod in our blacksmith 
shop on the morning of September 22d, 1905 (When he broke 
his record and equaled the world's record for mile pacing 
without wind shield) by our blacksmith and he used your 
nails, which always give us perfect satisfaction on trotters, 
pacers, light driving horses, — and on our few draught 
horses they give the same results.

What is the Dorchester Gentlemen's 
Driving club, its source., its strength, its 
accomplished work and its aims? Of 
whom is its list of members composed, 
and what notable horses do they, or have 
they owned? All these things it is the 
province of this offering to tell. 

Besidents of Dorchester, Milton, Hyde 
Park and other localities to the south of 
Dorchester will recall that fifteen years 
ago the only snow speedway in the vicin- 
ity was on Eiver Street from Mattapan 
to the Lower Mills, and that there was 
no place on the south side of Boston 
for brushes to wheels. Electric car tracks 
made Eiver Street impossible, and a short 
snow speedway was established on Talbot 
Avenue, Dorchester, from Codman to 
Peabody Squares. When Blue Hill Ave- 
nue was widened the scene of activities 
was changed to that thoroughfare, that 
part from Harvard Street to Morton 
Street or thereabout being used. The 
permit had been obtained through the 
efforts of John M. E. Morrill, now of 
the Morrill Construction Co. ; Charles 
H. Belledeu, the contractor and interior 
fitter, and present owner of Kentucky 
Star, the fastest horse ever owned in the 
club; and Hollis P. Gallup of Ashmont, 
at whose well-appointed stables so many 
of the club horses live or have lived. 
These three gentlemen met by accident 
one day in the blacksmith shop on Barnes 
Street of E. P. Denn and discussed the 
probability of being allowed to speed on 
Blue Hill Avenue, and it was at this time 
and place that the Dorchester Gentle- 
men's Driving club was conceived. Like 
many another youngster destined to wax 
big and powerful even if its parents 

could not foresee what the periods of 
gestation, birth and development would 
bring forth. 

The permits obtained, Messrs. Belle- 
deu, Morrill and Gallup at once formed 
themselves into a committee to keep the 
track in good condition. Mr. Belledeu 
was secretary, Mr. Morrill treasurer, 
and Mr. Gallup road inspector, and 
several hundred dollars were secured 
each winter. Later they started a peti- 
tion for a permanent speedway on Blue 
Hill Avenue, which was signed by many 
prominent road drivers and business men 
of Boston, Dorchester and the neighbor- 
ing suburbs. The superintendent of 
streets, however, refused to grant the 
petition, as objections had been made by 
the property owners adjoining the street. 
He suggested that the committee apply 
for a speedway on the marshes of the 
Charles river near Brighton, and some 
of the Boston signers to the petition 
acted on the suggestion and secured the 
mile speedway which was opened to the 
public in September, 1899. 

Being so far away from Dorchester and 
sections lying beyond, it proved of no 
use to local drivers and the road com- 
mittee decided to take more active steps. 
Accordingly, Messrs. Morrill, Belledeu 
and Gallup invited other horsemen to 
meet with them on April 26, 1899, and 
as a result the Dorchester Gentlemen's 
Driving club was formed, with a charter 
list of one hundred members. The offi- 
cers elected were : C. L. Young, presi- 
dent; S. Walter Wales, first vice-presi- 
dent; Louis Pfingst, second vice-presi- 
dent; C. H. Belledeu, secretary, and J. 
M. E. Morrill, treasurer. Edgar 0. Had- 

dock was appointed clerk and the first 
regular records of the club are dated 
May 10, 1899. Mr. Haddock was suc- 
ceeded on October 30 of the same year 
by Frederick J. Brand, later president of 
the club. At the annual meeting in 1900 
all of the original officers were reelected. 
The full board of officers and the com- 
mittees were as follows : 

President, Charles L. Young. 

First Vice-President, S. Walter Wales. 

Second Vice-President, Louis Pfingst. 

Secretary, C. H. Belledeu. 

Treasurer, John M. E. Morrill. 

Clerk, Frederick J. Brand. 

Directors, Charles L. Young, Louis 
Pfingst, E. S. Fitch, C. H. Belledeu, 
John M. E. Morrill, T. A. Bresnahan, 

lie interest been manifested. The prizes 
for the winners were blue ribbons and the 
contests were as fierce as for thousand 
dollar purses. No record was kept of 
the races for the year 1899, but for the 
year 1900 the full record follows :

President Wales was reelected in 1902 
without a dissenting voice, but there 
were several important changes else- 
where. Secretary Charles H. Belledeu, 
who had filled the office from the incep- 
tion of the club, could no longer give it 
the time it required, and resigned both 
as secretary and director. His place as 
secretary was filled by the choice of 
George H. Greenwood, who still holds 
the office, and on the board of directors 
Mr. Belledeu was succeeded by Almond 
S. Gushee, one of the most active mem- 
bers of the club. Treasurer John M. E. 
Morrill resigned and was succeeded by 
the present treasurer, Robert S. Fitch, 
who was at the time second vice-presi- 
dent, Mr. Morrill accepting an election 
to the latter office. Mr. Morrill and Mr. 
Fitch simply swapped places. The full 
board of officers for the year was : 

President, S. Walter Wales, proprietor 
of the Boulevard stables at Grove Hall. 

First vice-president, Louis Pfingst, 
street railway supplies. 

Second vice-president, John M. E. 
Morrill, builder. 

Secretary, George H. Greenwood, cigar 

Treasurer, Eobert S. Fitch, real estate. 

Clerk, George W. D'Arcy, men's fur- 
nishing goods and president of the Brat- 
tleboro Overall Co. 

The directors were Messrs. Wales, 
Pfingst, Morrill, Greenwood and Fitch, 
and T. A. Bresnahan, Jesse Moulton, 
Frederick J. Brand, Charles L. Young 
and Almond S. Gushee. 

The committees were : 

Pacing and speedway committee, Al- 
mond S. Gushee. chairman; S. Walter 
Wales, Fred S. Eldred^e, Jesse Moulton, 
Hollis P. Gallup, George W. D'Arcy, W. 
W. Grant, Louis Pfingst, R. S. Fitch, 

William P. Boutelle, Randolph K. 
Clarke, D. W. Sullivan, Walter E. New- 
bert, Fred S. Gore, L. S. Timberlake, 
Charles L. Young, William M. Brum- 
mett, Edgar 0. Haddock, J. W. Linne- 
han and William J. Fitzgerald. 

Finance committee, T. A. Bresnahan, 
F. J. Brand and Jesse Moulton. 

Membership committee, George E. Grif- 
fin, Charles L. Hinds, Dr. R. W. Balkam 
and E. S. Harris. 

House committee, Wm. P. Boutelle, 
H. R. Barry, D. W. Sullivan, J. K 
Berry, W. E. Newbert and Charles L. 

The year 1902 was one of the greatest 
activity for the club. Many new mem- 
bers were added, the cash balance was 
largely increased, races were many and 
well attended, and entire harmony pre- 
vailed. As the year approached its end 
there was much speculation as to who 
would succeed President Wales. There 
was talk of a third term but though the 
president did not have an enemy in the 
club there were many members who did 
not like to see a third-term precedent es- 
tablished. First vice-president Louis 
Pfingst having entered the political arena 
thought it best to resign from the 
directorate of the club and from the list 
of eligibles to the presidency, Second 
Vice-president John M. E. Morrill was 
buried in business and the choice fell on 
Frederick J. Brand. The full board for 
the year comprised: 

President, Frederick J. Brand. 

First vice-president. Randolph K. 

Second vice-president, J. M. E. Mor- 

Secretary, George H. Greenwood. 

Treasurer, Robert S. Fitch. 

The above-named and Messrs. S. Wal- 
ter Wales, T. A. Bresnahan, Charles L. 
Young, Almond S. Gushee and Hollis P. 
Gallup composed the board of directors. 

The committees and other officers 
chosen by the directors were : 

Racing and speedway committee, Al- 
mond S. Gushee, chairman; S. Walter 
Wales, George H. Greenwood. Hollis P. 
Gallup, Hiram A. Haven, George W. 
D'Arcv. W. W. Grant, Louis Pfingst, 
Jacob Mosser, R. S. Fitch, William" P.

Press representative, Edward G. Rich- 

The election was held on Jan. 5. 
After the announcement of the balloting 
had been made known, Director T. A. 
Bresnahan said that President Wales had 
been present at every meeting of the club 
since he had been its president, fre- 
quently at much inconvenience to him- 
self and his family, and the speaker 
thought that the retiring officer had es- 
tablished a precedent which would be hard 
for any other president to live up to. For 
the president's faithfulness, Mr. Bres- 
nahan moved that the club give him a 
rising vote of thanks. The members then 
gave President Wales a rising vote of 
their appreciation and wound up with 
three cheers and a tiger. 

D. W. Sullivan said that words of 
praise should not alone testify to the re- 
spect in which Mr. Wales was held by the 
members. He held up a silver horse 
shoe, the exact counterpart of those worn 
by Rondo, the fast gelding owned by the 
president and said that it had been made 
by E. P. Denn, one of the club members, 
but that both Mr. Denn and the speaker 
were too modest to make the presenta- 
tion. A 7 ice-president Morrill was then 
called upon to make the presentation 
speech, which he did. Picking up the 
handsome gift, he read the inscription 
which was : "S. Walter Wales, President, 
Rondo 2.14 3-4 D. G. D. Club, 1901- 
1902." On the reverse side was the 
name of the donor, "E. P. Denn." 

There was still another nresentation 
during the evening, when the first presi- 
dent, Charles L. Young, was given a 
loving cup in commemoration of the 
record made by Landlord, the pacing 
champion of the Blue Hill avenue speed- 
way. Director Almond S. Gushee made 
the speech of presentation. Mr. Young, 
in accepting the gift, thanked the mem- 
bers for the trophy and said that he had 
probably had as much fun in defending 
the title of King of the Speedway as the 
members had in seeing him do it. 

The cup is a costly one of solid silver 
with a gold lining. On one side is in- 
scribed : 

Landlord 2.16 3-4.

chairmanship of the membership com- 
mittee ; and of Ernest H. Morgan, who, 
since the resignation of Mr. Eichardson,. 
had been press representative, as clerk

Said the report of this meeting: The 
result was a credit to all concerned and 
a tribute to hard working officers. Under 
President Brand's leadership the club 
stands much higher in point of mem- 
bership than a year ago and the cash 
balance has increased by about 30 per 

Good racing was enjoyed during the 
year, an added incentive being the vote of 
the club, of March 23, 1903, on motion of 
Walter E. Newbert, that a silver cup to 
the value of $25 be given each to the 
trotter and the pacer winning the most 
blue ribbons during the season. 

During the season of 1903 eighteen 
races were held on the Mattapan speed- 
way, exclusive of one match made but 
which did not come off, one of the horses 
failing to appear, the ribbon going to the 
other by forfeit. This was the India 
Panis-Susie F race for Oct. 29 for the 
trotting championship of the speedway. 
By a mistake India Panis failed to ap- 

pear and the ribbon was given to Susie 
F. That horse has since demonstrated 
her superior speed, however, and as the 
records show, has held the ribbon against 
all comers, has beaten fast pacers and 
ended the season of 1904 without a de- 
feat. Twenty-five different horses start- 
ed in 1903 and the aggregate number 
starting was 41. The racers and results 
were : 


Bath Belle, br m, trotter (F. J. Brand),

The important changes at the begin- 
ning of the 3^ear 1905 were the election 
of Almond S. Gushee second vice-presi- 
dent, to the presidency; of George W. 
D'Arcy to the office of first vice-president, 
and of Jacob Mosser to that of second 
vice-president. At the same time Fred 
S. Eldredge, one of the most popular 
members of the club and who has trained 
and driven many of her horses to victory ; 
J. B. Stuart, Jr., owner of the champion 
trotter of the club, Susie F; and Walter 
E. Newbert, who had been the chairman 
of the racing and speedway committee, 

were added to the board of directors. 
The contest at the election was a strenu- 
ous one but after the smoke of battle had 
cleared away the decision was accepted 
with the utmost good humor by every 
one. After President Gushee had made 
his appointments the board of officers 
stood thus : 

President, Almond S. Gushee. 

First vice-president, George W. D'Arcy. 

Second vice-president, Jacob Mosser. 

Secretary, George H. Greenwood. 

Treasurer, Bobert S. Fitch.

gerald, Fred S. Eldredge, Hollis P. Gal- 
lup, J. Bollin Stuart, Jr., and Walter E.

A part of the clerk's report for 1904 
was as follows : 

The club has held 48 regular meetings 
this year. An aggregate attendance of 
1944 members or an average of 40 1-2 for 
each night. An election of officers was 
held on January 4, but owing to a ques- 
tion of its legality a second election was 
held on January 18, the list chosen at the 
second election being that which has 
served the club the past year. 

Several stag parties, whist parties, and 
socials have been held and the annual 
ladies' night and concert were not omit- 
ted. The annual ladies' night was held 
in the Woman's club house on Centre 
street on the evening of April 17. The 
appointments, entertainment, music and 
attendance were of the highest class. 



First Vice President 1901-1902. 


Press Representative 



Following the custom inaugurated last 
year, a second annual banquet was held in 
the Woman's club house on the evening 
of October 27. The affair was very suc- 
cessful, and the club cheerfully made up 
the deficit in the receipts.- Many of the 
city officials and members of other clubs 
were present. 

The long fight for the Franklin Field 
speedway culminated on Thanksgiving 
day when the speedway was formally 
dedicated. The day was inclement, and 
it was impossible to hold races, but a 
goodly number took part in the prelimi- 
nary parade, and many others gathered 
along the line of the new speedway and 
stood in the drizzling rain in the hopes 
that the racing would take place. 
Ground was broken on August 1, and on 
November 21 the club was notified that 
a quarter-mile track was completed. 

The by-laws have been materially 
altered in some instances, the most sig- 
nificant instance being in the form of 
voting for membership, the ball ballots 
now being used, five adverse votes or 
black-balls to reject. This was incorpo- 
rated in the by-laws at the meeting of 
December 12, and used for the first time 
at the meeting of December 19. An- 
other important change was in regard 
to the right to challenge for the cham- 
pionship ribbons. 

Fifty-seven new members have been 
voted into the club during the year. 
Eacing, which languished during the first 
half of the year, began with its old-time 
interest after the appointment on October 
3 of a matching committee to make the 
matches among such horses as their 
owners announced would race. Since 
then there has been no dearth of races. 

The club has held two public races at 
Eeadville, one on June 17 and one on 
Labor Day. The balance from the two 
races was on the right side of the ledger, 
notwithstanding the fact that the club 
paid $250 for the track, instead of $100, 
the sum which it had previously paid. 
Five hundred dollars were paid in purses 
for the June 17 race and $400 for the 
Labor Day race. 

The club did not take part in the open 
air meeting of the New England Horse 
Breeders' association in the fall, but did 
take part in the horse show at Mechanics 

hall in the spring and carried off the 
second prize. President Brand with 
Minetta, led the Dorchester contingent 
of the parade, followed by Mr. Stuart 
with the speedway champion trotter, 
Susie F, Mr. Biggs with Authentic, Mr. 
Nevens with Eichmond, and Mr. Haven 
with Baroness. The cash prize of $50 
was turned into the club's coffers. 

The record of the races Avhich took 
place on the speedway during the year 
1901 is as follows : Forty-five different 
horses have started, the aggregate num- 
ber started is 176, and 82 races have 
taken place. J. E. Stuart, Jr.'s, Susie F 
held the trotting championship ribbon at 
the beginning of the season and it has 
never been wrested from her. Mr. 
Hood's Camden Girl, Mr. French's India 
Panis and Dr. Turner's Max G have been 
the horses trying for the trophy. In ad- 
dition, Susie F has gone up against two 
of the fastest pacers in the club and has 
never been beaten. 

The pacing championship ribbon at the 
beginning of the season was in the hands 
of W. F. Furbush who had won it with 
Mazie Sidney. On his selling the horse 
the ribbon reverted to the club. Mr. 
Linnehan with Eex and Mr. Clarke with 
Gladys M contested for it on October 13, 
Eex winning. Mr. Blaney with Charlena 
tried twice for it unsuccessfully, and Mr. 
Terry tried for it with Checkers also 
twice, successfully on November 3, but 
losing it on November 10, the trophy 
ended the season in the possession of 
Mr. Linnehan. 

The cup winners are Susie F (Mr. 
Stuart), for the trotters, with six ribbons, 
and Mutineer (Mr. Blaney), for the 
pacers, with seven ribbons.

Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving Club 
horses played a very important part in 
the races which took place at Combina- 
tion Park, Medford, at the Elks' Carni- 
val July 30 and August 4, 1900, the 
entries including many of the crack 
horses of the club. As a result, Mr. 
Belledeu's pacer, Kentucky Star, took 
first money and lowered the half mile 
record of the track, the Star's old antago- 
nist, Landlord, beating him out for the 
first heat, and taking second money by 
closely following him for the next two. 
Two days later Walter Farmer's mare, 
Russell Maid, won an easy victory in the 
invitation match, Mr. Fitch and Little 
Fred taking second money, with J. A. 
Hart's Glendale, driven by Mr. Gallup, 
Mr. Boutelle's Baby Logan driven by Mr. 
Morrill, Captain Hall and his then owner 
Mr. May, Walter Newbert and his game 
little mare, Alice B, and Mr. Abrams and 
Billy Crocker following. Two days later 
the crowd saw Mr. Clarke and Gladys M 
come under the wire first, with Dr. G 
(Brand), Bob Fitz (Gallup), Lida A. 
(Hart), and Mr. Blaney's Randolph K, 
driven by Mr. Morrill, in the above order. 
Following scriptural injunction, the last 
was first on the Saturday night closing 
the carnival, and Mr. Morrill drove Mr. 
Blaney's Little Fred (second money 
taker a few days before as the property of 
Mr. Fitch) to victory, Glendale again 
driven by Mr. Gallup, Ramus (Carey 
Keith), Ashmont (DeVee), and Light- 
foot (Galvin), coming in the order in 
which their names appear, at this carni- 
val. Mr. Wales' gelding, Rondo, then a 
new purchase, took second money in the 
race for the $100 purse, being driven by 
Mr. Gillies. At the Brockton fair 
Mr. Blaney took a part of the purse 
in the $600 event for double teams, with 
S. R. and Randolph K. 

Mention is made elsewhere of the cap- 
ture of the first money in the free for all 
at Readville on May 30, 1901. At this, 
Carey Keith took first money in the 
special trot, winning in straight heats and 
defeating such horses as Camden Girl, 
Alice B, and the old champion, Lady 
Madison, in the above order. An event 
worthy of much more than passing 
notice was the wonderful showing of Fred 
S. Eldredge's little mare, Silkey, at Cam- 
bination Park on the evening of June 27, 
1901. Mr. Tewhart had owned the mare 
as a trotter and had sold her to Mr. 
Eldredge. She was fairly good but Mr. 
Eldredge did not like her gait and at the 
cost of a good deal of skill, patience, 
hard work and time had taught her to 
pace. He had not intended entering her 
in the races but to accommodate club 
members who wanted to fill a special class 
made for the club's benefit, Mr. Eldredge 
consented to do , so. Baby Logan, with 
the veteran reinsman Ed. Gillies driving, 
was looked upon as an easy winner. Alice 
B, Mr. Morrison's Nellie W, and Mr. 
Abrams' Gem being the other contest- 
ants. Silkey simply "smothered 'em." 
At the start she kept with the bunch and 
then, apparently aware that she couldn't 
be fooling away her time, pulled ahead 
with the greatest ease and came easily 
down the stretch with a wide margin of 
daylight between her and her nearest 
competitor. It was a great day for the 
graceful little animal and for her owner 
and driver, one of the best liked men in 
the club. A great crowd of Dorchester- 
ites, headed by the then president, S. 
Walter Wales, saw the race. 

Two handicap races, one for a two- 
minute harness, given by W. W. Grant, 
and one for a whip, given by John Forgie, 
were held on September 5, 1901. For the 
• first, Elvino, the brown gelding, driven by 
Mr. Clarke, started at scratch, Bright- 
ness, the black mare, driven by Walter 
Newbert, having a handicap of 39 feet

and taking the race. Mr. Eldredge's 
Silkey, with a handicap of 810 1-4 feet 
took second money; Mr. Lally's Wilton 
Boy, 'with 924 feet to overcome, third 
money; Mr. Clarke's Gladys M with 
814 3-4 feet handicap, fourth money, 
the scratch horse being last, and Ken- 
tucky Star, with the heaviest handicap 
of all, 971 feet, being drawn. 

Mr. Fellows' Bex was the scratch 
horse in the race for the whip and took 
second money. First money was taken 
by Azote, owned and driven by Mr. Had- 
dock, with a handicap of 678 feet; Mr. 
Gallup drove Captain Hall, which took 
third money with a handicap of 725 1-4 
feet; the old King of the Speedway, 
Landlord, handicapped 910 feet, coming 
in fourth; and Bubsley G, owned and 
driven by Mr. Moulton, coming in fifth 
with the heaviest handicap of all, 992 

A whip offered by J. W. Linnehan for 
the horse making the most winnings on 
the speedway for the first half of 1902 
was won by Mr. Brand and Princess 
Ebilo with seven races and no defeats. 

At the annual field day at Combination 
Park, July 26, 1902, in aid of the Work- 
ing Boy's Home, Mr. Clarke with Gladys 
M took first prize, a pneumatic-tired, 
one-man road wagon in the style contest. 
Mr. Linnehan and Budweiser took the 
fourth prize, a cooling blanket and pair 
of horse boots. In the special class, 
open only to members of the Dorchester 
Gentlemen's Driving club, Mr. D'Arcy 
and Bonnets o' Blue took the first prize, 
a $75 harness; Mr. Brand and Princess 
Ebilo second, a pair of reins; Mr. Linne- 
han and Budweiser third, a whip; and 

Mr. Barry and W. W. Saylor fourth, a 
collar and pair of horse boots. 

On the evening of Memorial Day, 1902, 
a special event was arranged at Combi- 
nation Park for Dorchester Gentlemen's 
Driving club horses alone. A big Dor- 
chester contingent was present and six 
horses participated. There were three 
half-mile heats, each heat counting for a 
race. India Panis (G. A. French) came- 
under the wire first in each heat in 
1161-2, 113 1-2, 114 3-4. The other 
horses in their order were Ramus 
(Carey Keith), Alice B (W. E. New- 
beit), Ninety-One (R. C. Richardson),. 
Azote (E. O. Haddock), and Mattie Mil- 
ler (J. W. Linnehan). 

A special class was also made up at 
Combination Park on the Fourth of July 
following. Walter E. Newbert's chestnut 
mare, Alice B, was the winner after one 
of the most exciting races ever held 
under the club's auspices. Seven heats 
were necessary to decide the event. They 
were mile heats, the best time being in 
2 27 3-4, but it was fight from start to- 
finish. Newsboy (F. S. Eldredge), Ra- 
mus (Carey Keith), India Panis (G. A. 
French), Mattie Miller (J. W. Linne- 
han), and Ninety-One (R. C. Richard- 
son), came in in the order in which they 
are named. 

On July 19 following, a special class- 
was made up at South Weymouth, India 
Panis winning in straight heats in the 
2 23 trot, Alice B, Ramus and Mattie Mil- 
ler trailing. In the 2 23 trot or pace r 
open to all, Captain Hall (A. S. Gushee) 
and McNary's Hah owned by R. Y. Wood- 
bury, and driven by Walter Newbert took 
second and third money respectively. 









From almost the first the club gave 
ribbons to the winners of races and among 
the most prized — the most prized — have 
always been the championship ribbons, of 
which there are two : one for trotters and 
one for pacers. The history of how these 
ribbons have shifted ownerships is of 


The game little mare, Alice B., owned 
and driven by Walter E. Newbert, was 
the first holder of the trotting champion- 
ship ribbon. A word should be said of 
mare and driver. Both were always 
ready to race anything at anytime. A 
"cinch" was not necessary. If they were 
beaten they were just as ready to race the 
next time. Both went in to win, and the 
pair have furnished as much genuine 
sport for spectators as any man and horse 
in the club. It was a distinct loss to the 
club when the little mare was sold out 
of it. 

Alice B. first won the ribbon on the 
Blue Hill Avenue speedway on November 
24, 1900, in a race with Little Fred, 
owned by C. C. Blaney and driven by J. 
M. E. Morrill. On December 8 of the 
same year Carey Keith and his gelding 
Ramus, contested the championship, and 
were victorious, but Alice B. was again 
the winner in straight heats on Christmas 
morning, 1900. On Patriots' Day, 1901, 
E. S. Fitch, then vice-president, came on 
the scene with his new purchase, Bessie 
Rampart, and Alice B. went down to defeat 
in straight heats. A great crowd saw 
these two last races. A race was arranged 
immediately between Bessie Rampart and 
P. J. Fitzgerald's bay mare Lady Madi- 
son but bad weather intervened and the 
issue was not decided. After a few weeks 
Mr. Fitch announced that his mare was 
not in condition, that he did not think it 

right to withhold the trophy under the 
circumstances and it went to Lady Mad- 
ison by forfeit, Mr. Fitch reserving the 
right to again challenge if his mare came 
around all right. 

The first to take up the gage was Mr. 
Newbert who tried with Alice B. to regain 
the honors he had lost. The attempt was 
futile, however. The race took place on 
June 6, Lady Madison winning easily in 
straight heats. Carey Keith with his bay 
gelding Ramus was the next to try his 
fortunes. This race took place on June 
17 and more than 3000 people witnessed 
it notwithstanding the many counter 
attractions. Lady Madison was forced 
to step a little faster than before but she 
had the goods and although breaking and 
losing the first heat, took the three fol- 
lowing, the race and the ribbon. 

The next fight was a trifle easier. 
Charles L. Young,' then president, owner 
of Landlord and possessor of the pacing 
championship ribbon so many had tried in 
vain to wrest from him, had bought a bay 
gelding trotter, Roy K by name. A 
match was made for Lady Madison and 
the former record was repeated : Lady 
Madison went to a break in the first heat 
and took the next three. The race took 
place on July 11. If the Lady had 
earned a rest she was not allowed to take 
it and a week later was compelled to 
knock another two seconds from her best 
time. At this time John W. Linnehan, 
one of the gamest members of the horse- 
loving and horse-driving community 
became a member of the club and in 
behalf of his mare Lady Banker, which 
just then was enjoying the distinction of 
a hard race at South Weymouth without 
breaking in one of the heats, challenged 
Mr. Fitzgerald and the other Lady. The 
two came together on July 18. Walter 
Newbert drove Mr. Linnehan's mare 
which took the first heat, Lady Madison

as usual on the first heat going to a break. 
The next heat was a fight to the finish and 
was only won, as it was reported, by 
"Lady Madison sticking out her tongue." 
Again did Lady Madison break and the 
other Lady easily won. The next two 
heats were won by Lady Madison, every 
inch, however, being fought. And again 
did she go home with the coveted ribbon. 
At a return match given October 10, 
1901, the result was practically the same. 

Mr. Belledeu challenged in behalf of 
Ben H. late in the year but bad weather 
intervened and the race did not take 
place and Lady Madison was left in un- 
disturbed possession of the ribbon until 
April 10, 1902, when Mr. Haddock and 
Azote tried to win it but could not, Lady 
Madison being pushed no harder than 
36 1-1. On May 15 of the same year she 
clipped four seconds off that gait but Mr. 
Brand and Princess Ebilo were there 
with something a little faster and the 
ribbon left the speedway tied on the tet- 
ter's bridle. The mare wore it home 
again on June 5 when a return match was 
made. The Princess was then sold out 
of the club the ribbon returning by the 
rules to the club. On October 23, Lady 
Madison the long time champion, and D. 
W. Sullivan's Belle Lome raced for the 
ribbon, the Lady having an easy win in 32 
seconds. Later Mr. Fitzgerald drove her 
over the track just for fun in 30 seconds. 

For a time trotting for the champion- 
ship languished; then George A. French 
of Braintree, owner of India Panis, win- 
ner of many races, took up the gage, and 
on August 13, 1903, Lady Madison went 
down to defeat. On October 29 of the 
same year India Panis lost by forfeit 
through non-appearance to Susie F, the 
present champion. Mr. Stuart, owner of 
the mare, did not want the ribbon in 
that wa3 r but was forced to accept it under 
the rules. The ribbon was, however, 
found to be well bestowed as from that- 
time on, the gallant mare from Elm Hill 
has met all comers and has never suffered 
defeat. She met ' Mr. Hood's Camden 
Girl on April 19 and May 28, 1901, win- 
ning in straight heats each time ; defeated 
her old rival India Panis in straight heats 
on Nov. 3. and in what was one of the 
hardest fought and prettiest races ever 
seen on the speedway, defeated Dr. Tur- 

ner's Max G on Dec. 1, 1904. It took five 
heats to decide the event. Susie F took 
the first and the two last heats, and closed 
the year as the champion trotter of the 
speedway, the cup winner for the trotter 
winning the most blue ribbons, and with 
the record of a season's races without a 


As one never thinks of the prize ring 
without thinking of "John L." or of 
base-ball without the peerless "Mike" 
Kelley, so veteran members of the Dor- 
chester Gentemen's Driving club think 
always of Landlord when speaking of the 
pacing championship. Landlord went 
down in honorable defeat first on a mile 
track and then on the speedway, but it 
took one of the best horses in the country 
to beat him, and for five years the grand 
old pacer was the king. The first race 
recorded for the pacing championship, 
although there was then no championship 
ribbon, was between Landlord and Dr. Gr 
on June 7, 1900, the latter being owned 
by Mr. Brand, later President Brand, and 
driven by Mr. Gallup. Landlord was an 
easy winner. On July 17 of the same 
year, Mr. Blaney, • with Randolph K,. 
tried conclusions with Mr. Young and 
Landlord, the latter winning in straight 
heats. The dose was repeated on October 
18 of the same year with all the actors in 
their original roles. A week later Jesse 
Moulton and Rubsley G were after the 
president and his gelding. Result : three 
straight for Landlord. Another week and 
it was another "G," this time George G, 
owned by W. J. Fitzgerald and driven by 
"Ed." Gillies. George G went the way 
of the others. 

This was on Nov. 1, 1900. On Nov. 
12 the club voted to give a pacing cham- 
pionship ribbon as well as one for trotters,, 
and the first race for the trophy took 
place on Nov. 22 between Landlord and 
Ned Winslow, the latter driven by his 
owner, Charles H. Belledeu. The race 
was one of the Closest ever seen on the 
speedway and thousands came to see it. 
Landlord won in" three straight, but was- 
forced to cut his record down to 31 1-1 
seconds. Mr. Moulton had not got enough,. 







and on Christmas Day, 1900, again tried 
with Rubsley G- to carry off the ribbon. 
This was a hard fought race, each horse 
alternating with a heat, Landlord taking 
the odd and winning out. 

It was not until March 28, 1901, that 
Landlord was again called upon to defend 
his laurels, when G. W. D'Arcy, now first 
vice-president, with his pretty mare, Bon- 
nets o' Blue, essayed the feat. Bonnets 
o' Blue, took the first heat, Landlord 
going' to a break, but he was there with 
the goods for the next three heats. And 
yet again on June 20, 1901, Mr. Moulton 
put up Eubsley G to win the ribbon, but 
put John M. E. Morrill up behind the 
gelding to lift him to victory. Stanley 
Nichols tells of the "Rube" who tried to 
drink all the rum there was in Boston. 
He didn't succeed, but he "made 'em put 
the price up." Mr. Morrill did not win, 
but he "made 'em cut the time down." 
Landlord, however, won in three straight. 
Bonnets o' Blue tried it again on May 16 
and again won one heat, but Landlord 
was again victorious. 

Just at this time, to show that he was 
no quarter-mile horse, Landlord won in 
straight heats in the free-for-all, mile 
heats, at Eeadville, in a race held under 
the auspices of the Jamaica Plain Driving 
club. Mr. Stuart, owner of Susie F, the 
champion trotter, was with his gelding, 
Dempsey, among those pitted against Mr. 
Young. No race ever created greater ex- 
citement on the track or was witnessed 
by more people. But Landlord's star was 
about to set. On August 28, 1901, at 
Eeadville, Mr. Belledeu with his pacer, 
Kentucky Star, with a record of 2.08 1-2 
to sulkey and 2.09 1-4 to wagon, and 
which has since done the full mile 
at Eeadville in 2.03 1-2, raced Mr. 
Young and Landlord mile heats y and 
the latter was defeated in two straight, 
the Star's time time being 2.16 1-4 in 
each heat. On Labor Day following, at 
Eeadville, Landlord was badly beaten in 
the free-for-all. On October 2 the Land- 
lord-Kentucky Star race for the cham- 
pionship took place on the speedway, and 
although Landlord lowered his record two 
seconds on the quarter mile, there was 
the Star a little ahead all the time, and 
the pacing championship ribbon, so long 
and ably defended, passed into new hands. 

The time at this race was 29 and 29 1-4 
for the quarter. 

The history of the ribbon since then is 
more varied and perhaps a little less spec- 
tacular. Mr. Belledeu forfeited to Mr. Bla- 
ney, who at first refused to take it in 
that way, but who under the rules of the 
club was compelled to accept it. He had 
challenged for Charlena. Mr. Blaney for- 
feited to Mr. Brand, who had challenged 
for Dr. G. The first struggle for the 
ribbon thereafter was on March 27, 1802, 
when Mr. Boutelle drove his mare, Baby 
Logan, to win against Dr. G (Mr. Brand 
driving) , five heats being necessary to de- 
cide. Mr. Linnehan's Budweiser, was the 
next horse to win the ribbon, the race tak- 
ing place April 24. Baby Logan was in 
bad condition and her owner drew her 
after the first heat. Budweiser's time as 
a champion was brief, as on May 8 
Charles W. Arnold of Haverhill came over 
with his mare, Ida J, and won in straight 
heats. Baby Logan being by this time 
again in condition, Mr. Boutelle again 
challenged for the ribbon and was de- 
feated by the Haverhill contingent in 1, 2, 
1, 1. Mr. Arnold later surrendered the 
ribbon to the club, and on Oct. 16 Bud- 
weiser and Mr. Barry's cup winner of the 
next year, W. W. Savior, contested for it, 
the judges deciding in favor of Budweiser, 
with some of the spectators a little skep- 
tical, so close was the match. At a re- 
turn match en Nov. 22 it was Budwieser 
1, 1, 1. A year before, when Landlord 
won the ribbon and "Wilbur C. Littlefield 
owned the mare Beauty, a challenge for 
the ribbon was issued in behalf of the 
mare. The race did not come off, but C. 
C. Blaney, who had bought the mare, re- 
newed the challenge, and Budweiser again 
went clown in defeat, to slow music, how- 
ever, the fastest heat being in 33 and the 
slowest in 36 seconds. 

Little more was done in championship 
pacing in 1903. Beauty lost to W. J. 
Furbush's Mazie Sidney on April 2, and 
Mr. Linnehan at once challenged in be- 
half of his pacer, Eex. The race, half- 
mile heats, took place on May 14, and al- 
though Eex was defeated, lie made the 
Newton mare go in 1.05 to do it, Mazie 
Sidney again successfully defended the 
trophy on Oct. 22 against A. E. Kenney's 
Early Bird Jr., and was then sold out of

The ribbon then lay, metaphorically, on the first and taking the next three heats,

*-, ' 





The active fight for a permanent speed- 
way for Dorchester and vicinity began on 
May 14, 1900, when a hearing was given 
representatives of the Dorchester Gen- 
tlemen's Driving club by the Boston board 
of park commissioners, relative to a track 
on the Talbot Avenue side of Franklin 
Field. The petition, signed by 2000 men, 
including such well-known horsemen as 
John Shepard and the late John M. 
Forbes, was presented by S. Howard Mil- 
dram, then councilman for Ward 24, and 
an active member of the club. The fight 
ended on Thanksgiving day, 1904, when 
with a drizzling rain overhead and several 
inches of mud underfoot, a long proces- 
sion of prominent men and women in 
natty rigs, led by a tally-ho and brass 
band, started from Codman square, and, 
reaching the new speedway via Washing- 
ton street, Columbia road, Blue Hill and 
Talbot avenues, formally dedicated the 
speedway to the public use. An interest- 
ing program of races had been prepared 
by Walter E. Newbert, chairman of the 
racing and speedway committee, but 
neither the weather or the track would 
permit of their being pulled off. But the 
indefatigable "Little Japs" of the Dor- 
chester Gentlemen's Driving club had 
won their five years' campaign and 
entered the hard-won mud as their proto- 
types a few months later entered the 
hard-won Mudken, with flying colors. 

Two or three days after the first hear- 
ing in 1900 the board of park commis- 
sioners unanimously passed an order set- 
ting off a strip of land for speedway pur- 
poses, providing the city council would 
vote an appropriation of $25,000 for con- 
struction purposes. Opposition began at 
once, some of the daily newspapers treat- 
ing the matter lightly, and at least two of 
them coming out in strong editorial op- 

position. The Boston Herald for Jan. 
17 editorially estimated the first cost of 
the speedway at $210,000, with no pro- 
vision for annual maintenance, and the 
necessary land at nearly one-quarter of 
the playground. These attacks were kept 
up and citizens and even high school 
boys were asked to protest in written com- 
munications, which were published. 
Hearings were held before the finance 
committees of the board of aldermen and 
common council, but an item of $25,000 
for construction was included in the loan 
bill, was signed by Mayor Hart late in 
1900 — and then the board of park commis- 
sioners promptly rescinded its vote and 
asked that the money be devoted to other 

The story of the fight need not, and in 
fact hardly can be, told in detail. It en- 
tailed hopes and discouragements, prom- 
ises kept and promises broken, an appro- 
priation made and unspent, but looked 
at with hungry eyes for a score of pur- 
poses; attempts to divert it to other uses, 
and "backing" and "filling" for five years. 
The contention was that the city's' money 
should not be spent to make a race track 
for a few, and that if racing were permit- 
ted, spectators would be bowled over by 
the flying horsesTike nine-pins. The ad- 
vocates, the horsemen and others, replied 
that so far as danger was concerned there- 
was none; that every kind of sport was 
provided for at the expense of the tax- 
payers, largely at the expense of horse 
owners, as a man who can afford to own 
one or more fast horses for pleasure driv- 
ing is necessarily a man of substance; 
that no place was provided for the horse 
owners' amusement; and that, with all 
the miles of bicycle tracks and automobile 
roads, and riding horse tracks, and all the 
acres of tennis courts and football 
grounds, and baseball grounds, and golf 
links, all the baths and gymnasiums, 
everything that pertains to outdoor or 
indoor athletics, a quarter or three-

eighths of one mile was not much to ask 
for horse racing. 

The action of the park commissioners, 
although it should be said that from the 
first Laban Pratt, the Dorchester mem- 
ber, did all in his power to bring the 
speedway about, created consternation, in- 
dignation, and not a little ridicule. Hear- 
ings began again, and more than one 
member gave up hopes of ever having 
the coveted pleasure ground. When 
Mayor Collins came up for election a sec- 
ond time he was interviewed by members 
of the club, and like his predecessor prom- 
ised to do what he could. E. Gr. Bichard- 
son of the Transcript, then the press 
representative of the club, did a lot of 
good work and got his fellow reporters 
on the other dailies to do good work, 
either actively or passively, either by talk- 
ing or saying nothing, the last being 
sometimes more efficacious than the first. 

Some of the hardest work clone outside 
of the club was by members of the city 
council in trying to get the money for 
some other purposes than that for which 
it was set aside. Fortunately, the efforts 
in that direction were futile. An effort 
was made early in 1904 to enlist the aid 
of the Jamaica Elain and South Boston 
clubs, and the latter came out, was hand- 
somely entertained and under the influ- 
ence of hospitality, liquid, solid and 
purely fraternal, agreed to help — and 
then went home and the members were 
''ripped up the back" by other members 
for their pledges; the South Bostonites 
wishing a track on the proposed new 
Strandway, at the Calf Pasture or near it. 
They were later brought a little more 
into line, but even some of the Dorchester- 
ites for a little time thought it better to 
compromise on the South Boston location, 
and Councilman Burr, an honorary mem- 
ber of the club, who really wanted the 
speedway here, told the club publicly that 
there was little chance of its ever being 
built. Another meeting was held later in 
the winter in the club rooms at Codman 
square in which doubt prevailed, and 
there was something of a chance of a 
stampede for the Strandway. President 
Brand had not thought that he could be 
present and had prepared and sent the 
following letter which was read in the 
club : 

Dorchester, Mass. March 7, 1904. 
To the Members of the Dorchester Gentle- 
men's Driving Club: 

Gentlemen — Realizing the importance of 
the subject which will be discussed tonight, 
I wish to add a word of caution. I was told 
a few days ago that Park Commissioner 
Laban Pratt had said that our chances of 
securing a speedway on Franklin Field were 
never as good as at the present time, and 
that if we would take this subject up and 
present it now, we would undoubtedly se- 
cure our long cherished object. Mayor 
Collins has been seen on the subject, and 
has agreed to take the matter up imme- 
diately. He will visit Franklin field with 
the park commissioners, within the next 
few days, as he is anxious to make good 
the promise made to your committee just 
prior to the last election. 

With these facts in mind, I feel that the 
club will agree that it would jeopardize our 
prospect of ever getting a speedway on 
Franklin field, should we in any way com- 
mit ourselves to the speedway on the 
Strandway. I believe that a committee 
should be appointed tonight to wait on 
Mayor Collins and urge upon him the 
justice of our cause; and I believe in a very 
short time our efforts will be crowned with 

If, after we have exhausted every re- 
source, we find there is no hope of getting 
the speedway where we want it, it will 
then be time for us to try to secure it else- 
where. I am not unmindful of the interest 
manifested in this project by the members 
of the South Boston Driving club, and I 
believe their loyal support will be given us 
in our efforts. I trust the interest they have 
taken in the matter will be recognized by 
our club tonight, and a vote of thanks ex- 
tended to them for meeting with and co- 
operating with us. 

Very truly yours, 

J. F. BRAND, President. 

This was the turning point of the 
affair. A committee of the Dorchester 
club was appointed to meet a committee of 
the South Boston club, with a view of 
furthering the project. The committee 
did what it could, but one of the present 
members, Director P. J. Fitzgerald, a 
man who has always kept himself modest- 
ly in the background, did more and was 
able to do more than all the others put 
together. It is believed that no member 
of the Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving 
club will deny this. By what art or craft, 
what argument or inducement it was 
done, the writer certainly does not know, 
but progress was constantly reported. 
Mayor Collins' interest was aroused, lie 
visited the site of the proposed track, and

The social events of the Dorchester 
Gentlemen's Driving club have always 
been among its strongest features and to 
give even a list of the parties and enter- 
tainments, stag rackets, whist parties, 
and little socials and dances in which the 
ladies took part would be beyond the 
scope of this article. Of some of the 
more important, however, mention should 
be made. The first "ladies' night" was 
given on the evening of Dec. 11, 1899, in 
the Dorchester Woman's club house where 
the most or all of the state affairs of the 
club have been held. A fine entertain- 
ment was given, an equally fine supper 
served and dancing was enjoyed until well 
along toward daylight. Vice-president, 
later President, S. Walter Wales, was 
master of ceremonies, the committee in- 
cluding President Young, Secretary 
Belledeu, Treasurer Morrill, Councilman 
Mildram and Messrs. Pfingst, Fitch, 
Greenwood, Bresnahan and Dr. A. T. 
Davison. More than 400 attended and 
the success of the affair was unqualified. 

Many of the members recall the spicy 
and witty poem, "Horse Talk at the 
Club." It was written by T. A. Bresna- 
han, director, and one of the most 
esteemed members of the club and was 
read by Vice-president Wales at the open- 
ing of the fall season with a clam supper, 
Oct. 1, 1900. More than 100 were pres- 
ent and the good-natured touches on the 
tender spots were enj.oyed by victims and 
onlookers alike. The poem follows, the 
author being awarded the club's badge of 
honor, a blue ribbon. 


There has been a lot of horse talk in the 

season that's just passed, 
And many would-be winners have found 

themselves outclassed; 
While others who said nothing, but always 

wore a smile, 
Have been doing all the winning, and have 

made their little pile. 

At the races held on Labor Day, stanch 

"Landlord" took the dough. 
He knew that Young would knead it; into 

doughnuts it must go. 
He found he had no pudding, for Morrill 

drove "S. R." 
And made him pace the closest race that 

he has had thus far. 

Grandma "Trinket" shed her years and went 

a splendid mile, 
It pleased the people one and all, to see her 

put on style. 
Not quite "so young as she used to be", but 

yet she feels quite "Gushee", 
And those who chase her on the road have 

found her very brushy. 

"Lewiston Belle" cut quite a swell, no rec- 
ord has she got. 

She would have found one Labor Day, but 
Fitch says, "I guess not." 

He thought at first he'd try to win, but later 
changed his mind, 

And got a little souvenir for jogging in be- 

"Kentucky Star" is always game; he needs 

no praise you know. 
He's fairly won his laurels, which he wears 

with modest show. 
His gait is clean, his head is clear, and when 

he gets the word, 
He shoots out like a pickerel, and flies home 

like a bird. 

Another horse is "Rubsley G." This gelding 

in dark bay, 
Won three straight heats at Saugus, thanks 

to his driver Nay. 
The owner, Jesse Moulton, is a man all men 

And it pleased them much to see his horse 

the first to reach the wire. 

"Ned Wilkes" has proved as game a horse 

as anyone could wish him. 
He held his own along the line; no other 

horse could dish him. 
He shook his mark by many points, and 

still can shake it more, 
For he has proved a finisher; a race horse 

to the core. 

"Art Alco" is another horse that's done 

some noble deeds, 
Too numerous to mention; but anyone who 

The horse news in the papers is always sure 

to know, 
The winner in the 2.10 pace; the hero "Art

There is another pacer, and "Rondo" is his 

For stepping on the half-mile rings, he's 

winning lasting fame. 
He's won his races right and left, and yet 

he sighs for more; 
He's the king pin horse down at Grove Hall; 

what could you wish for more? 

There are many other horses, already with 

a mark, 
"Doctor G", "Alice B", that one owned by 

Randolph Clarke; 
"Bob Fitz", and "Ashmont", "Randolph K", 

"George G" and "Baby Logan"; 
"Nellie Bly", who did not die, but comes up 

at the slogan. 

When "Newbert" went to Rockland, Maine, 

he thought he had a cinch. 
He saw the hayseeds on the train; their 

money he would clinch. 
He put his trotter in the race, his money 

on the mare, 
And when he left the track that night, his 

pockets they were bare. 

It was a race of seven heats and three were 

won by "Alice", 
And Newbert said he thought that day 

that he could beat "Chehallis". 
They tied up all his money, and robbed him 

of his glory; 
If you would know how he got left, he'll 

tell you his own story. 

Now Edgar Haddock wore a smile, I'm sure 

you'd call it rich; 
He got it on the speedway, when he had a 

race with Fitch. 
He thinks he'll rest his horse awhile, and 

put him in the paddock. 
Now if you want a good fish tale, just get it 

straight from Haddock. 

That day "Prince Wilkes" and "Little Fred" 

were feeling on their mettle 
They had a little matter which they were 

bound to settle. 
Belledeu hitched up "Prince Wilkes", and 

Morrill "Little Fred", 
And up on to the speedway, with both their 

steeds they sped. 

"Now we want the word," said Morrill, as 

through the air he flew; 
"And that is just my pudding" said the noble 

Although a half a length behind he said he 

would not quarrel, 
But before they reached the quarter pole 

he was ahead of M'orrill. 

The next time they came down the stretch, 

John Morrill was behind, 
With "Little Frederick," cutting ice; to win 

he was inclined. 
So they got the word and off they went; he 

overtook the "Prince", 
But he lost the two next heats so fair he's 

not forgot it since. 

Now, boys, we want a speedway, and this 

we're bound to get, 
For the "pols" are with us hand and glove, 

we'll stick to them, you bet. 
We must always pull together, so when you 

go to vote, 
Stand by the ones, who stood by us, their 

interests promote. 

Tonight we come together to have a little 

Of Hollis Gallup's choice steamed clams, 

and Charley Young's rare punch. 
If you find that you are getting gay, and 

cannot stand the limit, 
Just sing a song or make a speech, or else 

you are not in it. 

My story now is ended, and I hope it won't 
be long 

Before some other member will produce an- 
other song. 

And if I have not stated right the doings of 
you all, 

Just criticise my simple rhymes, or lay it to 
my gall. 

At the stag party which followed, a 
month later, more than 200 were present, 
and these parties were frequent thereafter 
for two years or more. The ladies were 
frequently entertained but the second 
annual ladies' night was not held until 
Jan. 30, 1901. Thomas N. Hart, the 
Mayor of Boston, honored the occasion 
with his presence. S. Walter Wales was 
then president and John M. E. Morrill, 
then treasurer, had charge of the floor. 
Like its predecessor it was an unqualified 

The third big stag party of the club was 
held on the evening of Jan. 30, 1902, and 
again did Mr. Bresnahan contribute the 
feature of the evening in good rhyme, 
good wit and good sense. His poem was 
entitled : 


Have you heard about the horses that were 

out upon the snow, 
Rushing down the boulevard where the 

fastest speeders go? 
They came for many miles around to take 

part in the races, 
And as they passed adown the stretch, I 

saw these happy faces: 

Our president with Rondo wore his pleasant 

Grove Hall smile, 
Though Charlie Young and Landlord (with 

his whip) held him in style; 
'Twas nip and tuck the whole way down, 

and ne'er a one went faster, 
While Jacob Mosser barely 'scaped what 

might have been disaster. 


ORNAMENT (2.18 1-4) chestnut pacing gelding. 
By Red Bell. Owned by C. H. Morse. 

CHECKERS (2.24) bay pacing gelding. 
By Red Sam. Owned by J. N. Terry. 

Charles Belledeu with Winslow was as 

proud as he could be; 
He had a horse that stepped as fast as any 

I could see. 
He headed out some cracker-jacks, among 

them Halle Rocket, 
And never had to use his whip, but left it 

in the socket. 

The next familiar face I saw was John 

Morrill as of yore, 
Who drove a fine bay gelding, and knew 

just how to score; 
With four now coming down abreast, it was 

a splendid sight, 
And John won out so easily, it filled him 

with delight. 

Fred Eldredge started Silkey, and the crowd 

knew there was fun, 
For Sullivan went after him, like a shot 

from out a gun; 
Then, Boutelle joining in the race, the 

three hung close together 
Till Baby Logan nosed them out, for 'twas 

her kind of weather. 

Jesse Moulton's Rubsley G and Blaney's 

Randolph K 
Stepped by some of the fastest ones — it 

seemed to them like play; 
While Linnehan's Budweiser and Newbert's 

Alice B 
Were neck and neck, when Alice broke and 

lost the race, you see. 

Louis Pfingst and Fitch and Clarke and 

genial George M. Potter 
Went down the stretch just for a heat; the 

heat grew hot and hotter; 
'Til Gladys M, led by Ned Wilkes, that 

famous race-track pacer, 
Held on so fast she made him skip, but sure 

he won the race, sir. 

Hollis Gallup was in the swim, and thought 

he'd try Bob Fitz, 
His young roan lightning pacer, that has 

made so many hits; 
He struck a gait, and went so fast, it filled 

the crowd with wonder: 
Then Gallup said, "For cash or sport, I'll 

race you all, by thunder." 

Oh, where did Fred Brand keep himself with 

famous Doctor G? 
His scalp was sought by many, but his face 

they did not see. 
Littlefield was also missed, but Gushee's 

Captain Hall 
Had an argument with D'Arcy's mare, the 

beauty of them all. 

There were many other horses, but their 
owners all claim glory, 

So I will not interfere with them, but listen 
to each story. 

And when at night we hear them talk, while 
sitting round the fire, — 

I have my mind on one of them, a first- 
class "horse-tale" liar. 

Now it seems to me the speedway cranks 

had better stay at home, 
And patronize that quarter-stretch that we 

now call our own; 
But no, to Brookline they must go, have 

their names and pictures taken, 
And published in the morning news, while 

our speedway lies forsaken. 

This is our third stag-party, and I'm sure 

you'll all agree, 
That it pays to have them often, as it fills 

us all with glee; 
One gets full by drinking punch, another'll 

punch a drinker, 
And tell him that he's had enough, but he 

don't care a tinker. 

All hearts are filled with merriment, all 

faces wear a smile, 
Until the owners meet their wives, then 

watch the kettle "bile"; 
The air gets hot, their legs get weak, they 

wish that they were dead, 
Till their wives just do the hustle act, and 

bounce them into bed. 

Then they fall off in slumber, hitch up an 

old nightmare, 
And dream that they have twenty heads, — 

just nineteen "blocks" to spare; 
The ones they have next morning would 

fill the State House dome — 
They are not fit for business, so they have 

to stay at home. 

Now, the moral of these rhymes, my boys, 

while horsey as you see, 
And meant to bring in mirth and fun, 

where everything goes free, 
Is: If you would be* popular, at the club 

and on the road, 
Just take your share and swallow it, but 

don't take home a "load." 

The club does not allow any champion- 
ship honor to go unchallenged, not even 
that of poet laureate, so a little later in 
the year President Wales received the 
rhymes which follow, and which he read 
at the meeting of February 10, 1902. 
They were sent in anonymously, but it 
has been the general impression that there 
may have been some connection between 
the poem and the sudden increase in the 
bills for midnight oil which Mr. Grusbee, 
now President Gushee, was called upon to 
pay at about that time. 


It was a winter's morning, and crisp and 

chill the air; 
And brightly shone the midday sun upon 

the day so fair: 
And silver sweet the tinkling bells, o'er hill 

and valley rung, 
And in the streets of Dorchester were 

gathered old and young. 


BETSEY (2.35), black trotting mare. 
Owned by J. W. Dannahy. 

BELLE LORNE. bay trotting mare. 
Owned by E. W. Berrigan. 


Now rushes down the speedway track, in 
fiery haste along 

With panting steed and merry chime, a jol- 
ly sporting throng. 

Here comes the well-known "Alice B", al- 
though sometimes erratic, 

We think she's going mighty well since 
Newbert got rheumatic. 

If he would only let her be, and did not al- 
ways fret her, 

Perchance sometimes she'd win a heat, at 
least she'd go much better. 

Can "Azote" trot? the question comes. 
Why doesn't Haddock answer, 

And tell Fitzgerald to produce his fiery lit- 
tle prancer? 

Now white-faced "Ramus", Cary says, is 

game as e'en the best, 
And if they do not give him room, will 

knock them "galley-west." 
Fred Eldredge too, is very slick with his 

converted trotter, 
And when he brings him out my boys, look 

out, there'll be a slaughter. 

So "Gladys M." is in the swim; she never 
wears a blinder, 

But always stays well in the bunch, when 
Randolph K's behind her. 

On Labor Day, when she got hot, her own- 
er got still hotter, 

Although the mare had won the race, 
Clarke drove another quarter. 

Here's Littlefield with "Beauty" bright; he 

never has to lash her, 
But let's her sail the quarter-stretch with 

tail strung o'er the dasher. 
Now listen friends and you will hear that 

stern though distant slogan: 
"If tracks be good and skies be clear, I'll 

come with Baby Logan. 

"And if perchance some doughty knight does 

think that he can size her, 
Then bring your plug in haste that day, I'll 

not except 'Budweiser.' " 
Why Walter Wales should keep his nag so 

closely in the stable, 
And only let the Mrs. drive, is queer's an 

Aesop's fable. 

If I owned "Rondo" for one day I'd never 

stop to parley, 
But trot him out upon the stretch and tackle 

smiling Charlie. 
John Morrill says that he must buy a regular 

old bruiser, 
And drive him in the foremost ranks; he 

cannot bear a loser. 

Now Morrill, sure, may take his pick and 

later on may rue it, 
For every horse that comes along does not 

turn out a "Jewett." 
When Semple gets his "Mutineer" hitched 

right and steady going, 
There's not a youngster in the club can 

make a better showing. 

The belle unrivalled of the club "Bonnets 

o' Blue" is surely, 
And on her throne this stately queen in 

triumph sits securely. 
Now Gushee, too, drives "Captain Hall" 

and drives him very steady; 
Next year he'll beat you every one, so get 

your horses ready. 

Now don't disturb him in his glee, but let 

poor "Gushee" think it 
For on the sly, my boys, you know, he has 

not got a "Trinket." 
"George G", "Brand's G", and "Rubsley G", 

make a trio great and speedy; 
And if some Reuben picks them up, he'll 

find that he is seedy. 

Then there's that colt of high degree, that 

finely bred "Nagaina"; 
No doubt she'll make a race horse too if 

Gallup does not train her. 
When Sullivan, with rosy cheeks, his steed 

'gainst others pits, 
You might as well give up the fight as 

tackle lithe "Bob Fitz". 

Upon the track you seldom see that horse 

of Louis Pfingst's; 
But when he's feeling like himself he'll 

streak it like a lynx. 
"Kentucky Star" that race horse true, who's 

in the fastest racket, 
Has never dropped a race for blood, nor lost 

his "yellow jacket". 

There's "Camden Girl" and "Wilton Boy", 

with "Aggie H" worth shunning, 
And Hollis P., you plainly see, has "Emma 

Westland" running. 
Then "Ella H" and "Nellie Bly," with 

Wales and Mosser driving; 
Who always do the proper thing to keep the 

club a-thriving. 

The day is spent, the night draws on, and 

all are homeward going; 
Now Where's the club, go far or near, can 

make so fine a showing? 

The third annual ladies' night took 
place on Feb. 11, 1902. President and 
Mrs. Wales led the grand march at the 
dance which followed the entertainment 
and supper. George W. D'Arcy was 
chairman of the committee of arrange- 
ments. John M. E. Morrill was floor-di- 
rector, assisted by Secretary Greenwood, 
Councilman W. E. Hannan, Henry E. 
Barry and Edward G. Richardson. A 
year 'later, or on Feb. 12, 1903, the 
feature of the ladies' night was the pres- 
entation to the retiring president, S. 
Walter Wales, of a costly gold stop-watch. 
President Brand introduced Mr. Morrill, 
who made the presentation speech. The 
watch is inscribed : 


CAPTAIN HALL, black pacing gelding. 
By Silvertail. Owned by Almond S. Gushee. 

REX, bay gelding trotter. 
By Electricity, dam Lady Index. Speedway cup winner for trotters in 1903. Owned 

by Albert Fellows. 


"Presented to S. "Walter Wales by the mem- 
bers of the Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving 
club as a small token of their esteem and ap- 
preciation of his efforts in behalf of the 
Driving club, while he was president. 

"Boston, February 12, 1903." 

The evening of April 9, 1904, was again 
given up to the ladies, the programs for 
the evening being gems of art from both 
a literary and mechanical point of view. 
On January 19 of the present year 
(1905) a ladies night was held, E. K. 
Clarke having charge of the affair. 
Former successes were repeated. 

The first state banquet, dedicated espe- 
cially to the men, took place at Hendrie's 
on the evening of Nov. 5, 1903. The 
affair was both formal and informal. 
The members turned out in goodly num- 
bers, and many invited guests were pres- 
ent, private, political and otherwise, 
although politics in the club is debarred. 
The long-table idea was passed by in the 
arrangements, and the members and 
guests gathered around small tables, 
choosing their own companions. Ran- 
dolph K. Clarke, then first vice-president, 
was at the head of the committee of ar- 
rangements. The affair was a "wet" one, 

which, of course, did not dampen the fes- 
tivities. A fine entertainment was given 
and there were some excellent speeches. 
One of the features of the evening was 
the presentation to Almond S. G-ushee, 
now president, but then finishing up a 
three years' service as chairman of the 
racing and speedway committee, with an 
eas} r chair. Mr. Gushee has given very 
largely of his time, thought and money 
to the welfare of the club and no man 
contributed towards the gift without re- 
garding it as a pleasure. Ex-President 
Wales made the presentation speech. 

The event so auspiciously inaugurated 
was repeated on the evening of October 
27, 1904, Mr. Clarke being again chair- 
man of the committee of arrangements 
and toastmaster. The banquet was held 
at the Woman's Club House. Members 
and guests were present in even greater 
numbers than on the year previous. The 
Franklin Field speedway, the construction 
of which was hanging in the balance 
and discussion of which was taboo at the 
previous annual banquet, was at the 
1904 meeting almost completed and was 
the subject of a good deal of talk and

speed. Last fall he stepped the Mattapan speedway, which is 3-8 of a mile long, re- 
peatedly in 48 seconds, a 2:08 gait, and he will surely beat 2:10 this year.

The first public parade of the club was 
held on Memorial Day, 1900, and no affair 
of the kind has created greater local 
interest. Almond S. Gushee, now presi- 
dent of the club, was chief marshal, 
assisted by the dashing young rider, S. 
Walter Wales, Jr. The formation was in 
Peabody Square, Ashmont, and the route 
to Codman Square via Talbot Avenue to 
Grove Hall via Washington street and 
Blue Hill avenue to the speedway. Prizes 
were awarded for the best turnouts, John 
Jewett of the Boston Herald, E. E. Cogs- 
well, then of the Traveller, and T. F. 
Anderson of the Globe being the judges. 
The prize-winners were : 

Four-wheeled speed-wagons, one man — C. 
H. Belledue, Kentucky Star; C. L. Young, 

Pneumatic road-wagons, double — W. F. 
Hall, Delegate; Randolph K. Clarke, 
Gladys M. 

Special prize for stallions — W. F. Hall, 
Delegate; C. C. Blaney, Brick Wilkes, Jr. 

High-wheeled wagons, single — E. P. Denn, 
Lady Wentworth; R. S. Fitch, little Fred. 

Double-hitch, road-wagons — E. F. Gould; 
A. W. Davis. 

Special Prize, double hitch — C. L. Hinds 
and A. H. Langille, pair of blacks.

Alderman Franklin L. Codman. 

Goddard buggy — G. A. Whitney; George 
H. Greenwood, Prince G. 

Special prize, depot-wagon — A. H. Morgan. 

Interesting brushes filled out the after- 
noon. The club entertained at its head- 
quarters on Centre street and Secretary 
Belledeu entertained the officials and 
newspaper men in royal style at his home 
in Ashmont. 

The big parade, the biggest ever seen 
hereabouts, scheduled for May 14, 1901, 
several times postponed on account of 
weather, and finally held on May 30, 1901, 
was not a distinctly Dorchester affair but 

it was so largely tinctured with Dorches- 
ter that it is fairly given a place in this 
book. By far the largest entry list for 
any locality was from Dorchester, and B. 
K. Clarke, later first vice-president of the 
club, was chief marshal of the day. 
Prominent on the committee of ar- 
rangement were Messrs. Wales, Pfingst, 
Fitch, Belledeu, Morrill, Brand, Timber- 
lake, Gore and Moulton. The parade, ac- 
cording to a reporter, "twice postponed 
because of weather conditions suited only 
to ducks, devil-divers and black bass" was 
started "under a grief-gray sky that 
wrapped all the world in twilight. Top 
coats, racing wraps, blue shivers and exe- 
crations against a month that had nothing 
better to offer rioted together." But in 
spite of all this the parade was a success. 

Below are given the Dorchester entries 
with the marks of the horses at that time. 
An examination will show the phenome- 
nal and unparalleled average speed. 
This has since been somewhat reduced as 
many of the horses have made much lower

The Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving 
Club formed the second division, the aid 
being George B. Fowler. The club's dis- 
play was led by a four-horse brake con- 
taining the committee and guests. The 
brake was decorated with the club's colors, 
yellow and blue, and small yellow and 
blue flags were attached to the heads of 
the horses. Behind the dray was 
"Junior" on horseback and bearing the 
banner of the club, yellow and blue and 
gold. Brushes followed the parade. 

On Decoration Day, 1902, the Dorches-

another big parade with the route as 
before and with Bandolph K. Clarke as

The star attraction of the day was Mr. 
Belledeu's Kentucky Star, the fastest 
horse ever owned in any club hereabout. 
Mr. Belledeu on this day entered with 
the Boston club to which he also belonged. 
No prizes were awarded. 

The last parade in which the club took 
part was on June 10 of the present year 
when it acted as escort for the guests at 
the celebration of "Dorchester Day." 
Ex-President S. Walter Wales was mar- 
shal of the day, and about 70 teams were 
in line. The club furnished ribbons for 
each team entering under the club 
auspices and the exhibit was the most 
marked feature of the day.

The hvo veteran road-drivers of the 
Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving club, as 
they are in point of service, among the 
oldest road-drivers in New England, are 
the first president of the club, Charles 
L. Young and former First Vice-Presi- 
dent Eandolph K. Clarke. The former 
as a driver slightly antedates the latter, 
and was driving fast horses when the 
parents of some of the present members of 
the club were in short dresses or knick- 

"Most things go by comparing" said 
David Harum. "I suppose if the general 
run of horses never got better'n three n a 
half that a hoss that c'd do it in three'd 
be fast, but we don't call 'em so nowa- 
days." Old Dexter was a wonder and a 
world-beater when he touched 2.40. To- 
day no one would dispute his eligibility 
to that breeder of dissension, the Special 
Slow Class of the Dorchester Gentle- 
men's Driving club. Ex-President 
Young's span as a driver of fast horses 
furnishes a fair exemplar of the evolution 
of the road horse. As he tells the story 
most entertainingly we will let him tell it 
in his own words. 

"The first horse I owned," said the 
genial ex-president, "was a trotter named 
Tige. That was in 1875. He couldn't 
do a mile better than three minutes, but 
at that could beat eight out of ten horses 
going over the road. I kept him about a 
year, and then thinking that I wanted 
something that could go a little faster, 
swapped him with my brother, who said 
he would give me something that could 
fly. He gave me a western pacer that 
had always been driven double. He had 
no name, but I found one for him as quick 
as I had my first ride. 

"I paid my boot and got my nice looking 
bay horse on Friday night. Now the boys 
all know that I don't race on Saturday, 
as the beans and brown bread must be 
looked after, but that time I could not 
wait till Sunday, so I hitched up Satur- 

day afternoon. It was a fine, pleasant 
afternoon in the fall. Brighton avenue 
was the only place then of any account 
where there was driving, and the road 
was filled with the best turn-outs in the 
city. So I started with my bay pacer. 

"He was all style and I guess had never 
been in a crowd before. I never had any 
fear of a horse, and always supposed I 
could hold one as long as the reins held 
together. That was where I made my 
mistake, for before I went a hundred 
rods I found out that I had my hands 
full, and pulled in behind a big express 
wagon to get a better grip. When I 
thought I was all right I pulled out 
again, and then the fun (for the boys) 
began. The first thing the horse did was 
to make some leaps that couldn't have 
been less than thirty feet. I 3 r elled to 
clear the road, and everybody who could 
get out of the way got out of 
the way. By this time the pacer 
was going like a ' wild horse, and all I 
could do was to hang on. I had neither 
time nor nerve to steer him, and could 
only trust to luck. Everybody was yell- 
ing 'clear the track, Young is running 
away.' That was where the boys made a 
mistake, for 1 wasn't going any faster 
than my horse was — that is not till a 
minute later when I struck a lamp-post 
and went into the air. 

"I sailed for about fifteen feet and 
landed on about even terms with my 
pacer, and with everything bottom side 
up. I struck on my feet and hung on 
to the horse, which made another jump 
and wrecked a team which the owner said 
cost him $450. I was shaken up a little, 
but wasn't scared. My head was clear, 
and I was the first one to my horse's head ; 
and the reins and the bridle and I were 
all that stuck to him. Then I named him 
]STo Good, and swapped back with my 

"This time he gave me a Lambert named 
Wevmouth Bov, and there were few

horses on the road that could beat him. 
Lady Morrill, 18 years old and with a 
record of 2.29 1-2, made some time back 
in the seventies, was my next find, and 
she was a good one and could beat nine 
out of ten horses she tackled. One day I 
went out to Concord to a horse race and 
saw a nice looking horse warming up. I 
got over the fence, looked him over and 
bought him on the spot. He was 17 hands 
high, young and sound, but I could not 
get speed enough out of him to suit me. 
I swapped him with John Morrow for 
Cleo, one of the best little horses that 
ever went over the road, and the one with 
which Mr. Hall of the Adams House 
used to have so much sport. The game 
little mare was burnt to death in a stable 
a few years later. 

"The next horse I owned was Eclair, 
a good horse in his day, but his day was 
a little gone by before I got him, so I 
swapped him with a man in the country. 
Eight there is where I made another mis- 
take, and found out that the city fellow 
don't know it quite all when it comes to 
swapping horses. I saw an advertisement 
and went to see the horse. He was a 
dapple gray with a banged tail. One 
shoe would weigh four ounces and one 
about a pound and a half. I had heard 
that the man was too mean to shoe his 
horses properly and supposed it was shod 
out of the scrap heap; so I traded, and 
much to my surprise got fifty dollars to 
boot. The man said he would not put 
me to any trouble, but would deliver the 
horse at my end instead of half-way, as is 
the custom where the parties are thirty 
or forty miles apart. The next day I 
took my new find to the shop and had 
him shod properly and went out to show 
the boys what a fine family horse I had. 
I started in to trot and thought I started 
an Anvil Chorus. Say ! he forged to beat 
the band, and you could hear him half a 
mile away. I did not go very far or say 
very much, but I walked my handsome 
dapple gray around to the blacksmith 
shop, had his old shoes put on, and the 
next day sent him to the sale stable. 

"My next horse was a sorrel pacer from 
Prince Edwards Island. It was said that 
he went a mile clown there in 2.18 with 
a load of ladders. Pacers were of little 
account around here then, so I changed 

him over into a trotter. It took a 3-lb. 
shoe forward to bring him down to a 2.10 
clip, which was fast then. This was in 
1880. When I was sleighing I used an 
old-fashioned cow bell up under the sear, 
and when I let that ring there were few 
horses, you bet, which could take my sor- 
rel's measure. He was what we used to 
call a corn-cracker. 'May Bird was the 
next, fast but unsteady; and the next 
was a big road horse, but I had speed on 
the brain and let him go. Henrietta was 
the next, and she was a corker. She had 
one spavin, and if she had had two I 
would have been all right. It cost me 
something for laudanum and ether to 
make her go sound, but when she got lim- 
bered up she had speed to burn, and 
horses costing up in the thousands had to 
take her dust. I could name a good many 
who went up against her, but it isn't good 
taste to do so, for the owners felt bad 
enough at the time, and I'll let the mat- 
ter drop. Old Beacon Park was her 
stamping ground. She cost me $300. 
That was my long price then. 

"The old war-horse, Northern Spy, was 
my next purchase. He was the fastest 
half-mile horse known at that time, and 
had sold for a brush-horse to wheels or 
runners as high as $5000. James Golden 
had trotted him four quarters in two min- 
utes on the ice at Spy pond. His stride 
was 28 feet and he travelled three feet 
wide behind in action. He pulled -175 
pounds a quarter in 35 seconds at old 
Beacon Park. I waited till the owners 
came to my price and then bought him. 
They did not make the running gear 
very wide then so I had shafts eight feet 
long put in so that he would not hit the 
runners. This did the trick. If I had 
had a sleigh built as they make them 
now people would have thought me crazy. 
I waited till I got the old horse on edge, 
and one fine Sunday went out on the 
Arsenal road where the sports congregate, 
the Beacon Street boulevard not being 
then in existence. I felt the old horse 
out a little in spots, and found that I had 
speed for anything on the road and a lit- 
tle extra to burn, and then I put in one 
of the pleasantest afternoons, I believe, in 
my life. As it was Sunday we couldn't 
vent our feelings — simply sat stiff and 
said nothing. Lamp-posts looked like

candle sticks, and we seemed to melt the 
snow behind us, but we did leave the road. 
The next morning the old horse was as 
good as dead and I never rode fast behind 
him again. Northern Spy was then 22 
years old, and as I wanted him every day 
the sun shone he could not do my work. 
I sold him for fifty dollars, but the one 
Sunday afternoon's fun I had with him 
was worth five hundred — and it cost me 
about that amount. 

"The little 'D. P.' (Detective Patchen) 
was my next horse and one of the best 
brush horses that ever went down a speed- 
way. I drove him four 3-ears over old 
Beacon Park and all the roads in Boston 
and vicinity, and over the track at 
Brockton in 2.30 1-2. This was in 1885 
and the time was considered fast in those 
days. He was a trotter, sound as a nut 
and cost me $180 when he was nine years 
old, and it took their thousand dollar 
horses to take his measure. He would 
seldom break and kept everybody guessing 
as to whether he would beat or get beat. 

"Next came Mabel Scott. I used her 
eleven years and raced everything that 
cared to tackle her. She was steady, sel- 
dom broke, and there were few that could 
beat her. She is still living, is about 20 
years old and is owned by a private family 
in Milton. A good many of the boys will 
recall my last r?ce with her when she 
proved herself a safe and gentle horse by 
running away and not breaking either my 
neck or her own. Tt was on Washing- 
ton's Birthday, 1895. The sleighing was 
fine and the speedway at that time was 
clown Talbot Avenue from the White 
Church to Peabody Square. I was a new 
comer to Dorchester then. It was Sat- 
urday and if I had been at home looking 
after the beans and brown bread as I 
had ought to have been, it would not have 
happened. I had been out to Beacon 
Park and coming back, about four 
o'clock, found about fifteen good horses on 
the speedway. I went down twice and 
did up the gang to the queen's taste. The 
third time I scored around, the shaft-iron 
broke and the sleigh runner went in be- 
tween the mare's hind legs. I was a little 
ahead which was a good thing for the 
mare began to run to get clear of the run- 
ner which was cutting her at every jump. 
The more I pulled the mare in the worse 

it cut her. 1 won the heat all right, 
and when the policeman stopped us, up 
this side of Milton, the sleigh was a 
wreck and I was sitting straddle of the 
only runner. 

"And then came Landlord, well known 
by almost every one who has had any- 
thing to do with horses. They ran up 
against him for five years and the horse 
that could beat him had to do the first 
quarter at a two-minute and the second at 
a 2.01 clip. Landlord was never beaten 
on even terms on the speedway but once. 
That was by the Star which went four 
quarters in 1.58 1-1. Otherwise the grand 
old pacer was king of the speedway for 
five years." 


Mention is made elsewhere of this 
wonderful animal whose picture taken 
when she was 26 years old, also appears 
on another page. Trinket was a bay 
mare, foaled in 1875. She was by Prin- 
ceps, dam Ouida by Hambletonian 10 ; 
grandam. Morning Glory, by imported 
Consternation. She was bred by E. S. 
Veach of St. Mathews, Ky. As a four- 
year-old, in 1879, she was the sensation of 
the year, obtaining a record of 2.19 3-1 
which was the fastest for the age at that 
time. In 1880 she came out in fine form 
and met her great rival, Maud S, which 
was one vear older. They met at Chicago 
July 21th, and Maud S won in 2.13 1-2. 
Trinket lowered her record to 2.19 1-1 
that season and was bought by John W. 
Shaw of New York for $11,000. She 
was then placed in the hands of John E. 
Turner who overcame her peculiarities, 
and after a series of easy races in the West 
she started down the Grand Circuit in 
the 19 class and won all along the line. 
At Fleetwood Park, Morrisania, N. Y.. 
Sept. 22, she reduced her record to 2.11. 
During the season she started in 22 races, 
winning 11 and netting $10,000 in purses. 
Her name appeared but once in the year- 
book as she was retired from the turf 
before the first volume appeared in 1885. 
During her trotting' career she won over 
20 races and more than $27,000. 

After her racing days were over 
Trinket was bought by Mr. Hobart of 
California for breeding purposes and was

the stable companion of the great Stam- 
boul. She had several foals, all but two 
or three of them still-born. One which 
lived was Trinket Boy, by Stamboul, 
which as a yearling sold under the hammer 
for $5000. Trinket Boy never surpassed 
his dam in speed but was the sire of sev- 
eral fast ones. After Mr. Hobart's death 
his stable was sold under the hammer and 
the late J. Malcolm Forbes, who was then 
scouring the country for fast horses for 
his breeding stable, bought Trinket for 
$3200 at auction. The mare was not a 
regular breeder and Mr. Forbes never suc- 
ceeded in getting a foal from her. She 
was sold by Mr. Forbes to Mr. Gushee. 

Trinket's history would not be complete 
if it were not followed down to her 
twenty-fourth year and noted what this 
evergreen mare did when her days were 
nigh unto a quarter of a century. 

She was then owned by Almond S. 
Gushee, now president of the Dorchester 
Gentlemen's Driving Club. On Septem- 
ber 4, 1899, Mr. Gushee started her in 
the free-for-all at Beadville. It was 
the first race he ever drove, but the grand 
old mare, game to the last, lighted up the 
closing day of her illustrious career /by 
winning the race in 2.20 3-4 - 2.20 1-2, a 
rate of speed equal to her flight as a 
four^ear old when her name was first on 
every tongue. She could easily have made 
the mile at Beadville in 2.17 or 2.18 if 
her owner would have let her have her 
head. Her old sporting blood stood by 
her to the last and the sound of the gong 
drove her half wild. She was gentle as a 
kitten in the stable or anywhere where 
there was no racing, but it took three men 
to harness her at the track, and she would 
pick up a 200-pound man with her head 
easily. She was simply a bunch of nerves. 
She would easily, when she was 25 years 
old, road 15 miles an hour. She was a 
fine road and driving horse except that 
she would not walk. 


There is standing up in Ashmont. in 
quarters better than the average human 
enjoys, his strenuous work done, and the 
most considerate care ensured for his 
old age, and yet as sound of limb and 

wind as ever, without blemish, one of the 
grandest little horses which ever stood on 
feet. This is Kentucky Star, the bay 
gelding pacer, owned by Charles H. Belle- 
deu, with a racing record of 2.08 1-2 
made in a field of 11 horses, which has 
been the full mile at Beadville in 2.03 1-2, 
has been a half mile on the ice in a min- 
ute flat, and which competent judges 
believe with proper early handling could 
have paced the full mile in two minutes. 
His history is of the greatest interest to 

Kentucky Star, foaled in 1887 is of the 
very highest breeding. His sire was the 
famous Bobert McGregor, with a record 
of 2.17 1-2 made to the old-fashioned 
high-wheeled sulky, one of the gamest of 
fighters, and which died a few years ago 
at the great age of 27 }^ears. McGregor 
was also the sire of the famous Cresceus 
(2.02 1-4) and Lurline (2,11 3-4) to both 
of which the Star is half-brother, and 
80 others in the list. Bobert McGregor 
was by Major Edsall, and his dam was 
Nancy Whitman by American Star. 
Kentucky Star's dam was Lalla by 
Fetoskey, and his granddam was Lalla 
Bookh by Vidette, a son of Vindex by 
Hambletonian 10. Betoskey's sire was 
by George Wilkes (2.22) one of the great- 
est trotting sires that ever lived. Her 
dam was by Iron's Cadmus, sire of the old- 
time pacing champion Bocahontas 
(2,17 1-2) and grandsire of the old pacing 
champion stallion Smuggler (2.15 1-4). 

Kentuck}*- Star was bred by J. F. Hern- 
don of Lexington, Ky., and as a youngster 
was not particularly valued. He was 
used in the stud when young and was the 
sire of Bay Star with a record of 2.08. 
He was brought on by Mr. Stearns of 
Springfield and was bought by Mr. Elliott 
of Springfield for $125, as a three^ear- 
old. The latter raced him in New Hamp- 
shire and Vermont but he was full of 
what Artemns Ward would call "excen- 
trissities," he pulled and ran and was 
altogether too much horse for his owner. 
His mark was then 2.32 when he was five 
years old. It was at Greenfield that it 
dawned on people that he was a great 
little horse. 

As all the parties are dead, and living 
or dead no one would be harmed, a little 
inside history is admissible. The Star's

owner and driver had struck Greenfield 
flat broke, without even money enough to 
pay the entry fee. They got trusted for 
the latter and went in to the race. It was 
as much of a case of "must" to win as it 
was for the boy to out dig the woodchuck ; 
with the minister at the house and the 
family out of meat. The track was 
muddy and heavy and the Star tired out. 
He won the third and fifth heat, lost the 
sixth and went into the stable to be 
cooled out for the seventh so tired and 
weak that he could not stand. It seemed 
a crime to send him out again but the 
conditions were desperate. A man on 
either side held him up while the shafts 
were droj)ped over his back, and he reeled 
rather than paced out to the track. He 
scored down once or twice and then 
seemed to pull himself together and all 
the old fighting blood of his forebears 
came to the surface, and he went in and 
easily outfooted the field. 

This bull-dog gameness coupled with 
marvelous speed have been the Star's 
strong points. His mark was brought 
down to 2.18 and the next year to 2.16. 
T. P. Eadiker bought him about this time 
for $1600 and Fred Howard drove him. 
He was entered all down the big line the 
next summer and brought his record down 
to 2.12. He was sick but was raced 
through sickness and all, and altogether 
was in 18 races. It has been charged that 
he was not always allowed to win when 
he had an easy stunt if his managers could 
make more money by pulling him. If 
this is true it would account for some of 
his unevenness and "exeentrissity." 

It was at Eigby Park, Portland, Me., 
in 1896, that he made his mark of 2.08 1-2 
in a field of 11 horses for a $2000 purse. 
The class was a 2.12 pace, and the time 
and place was the same in which John E. 
Gentry paced a mile in 2.00 1-2. The 
horsemen called the Star's performance 
scarcely less remarkable. He made the 
three heats all in less than 2.10. Said 
the report of the race : 

"In a field of 11 horses he drew ninth 
position and Howard (his driver) .was 
content to trail with him until after 
passing the half where the Star was ask- 
ing for his head and getting it paced 
through the field and passing the three- 
quarters was up third. Here he broke but 

quickly recovered and set sail for the 
leaders. At the seven-eighths he had 
Simmons disposed of on a break and it 
was only a second more when Brennan 
went into the air, the Star coming home 
in 2.09 1-2. In the next heat the Stal- 
led the procession coining home in 
2.08 3-1. In the third heat Kentucky 
Star was blocked by a solid wall and How- 
ard had to sit still going down the back 
side letting one and another pass him 
until reaching the half when he was in the 
sixth horse place. At this point Howard 
saw an opening and pointing the Star for 
it he went through, passed the leaders 
handily, and came in under a pull in 
2.08 1-2. The quarters were 32, 1.01, 
1.36, and he must have stepped the last 
half in 1.03." 

Mr. Belledeu bought him for $1000 at 
Combination Park ten years ago and since 
then his record has been well known. He 
has stepped the last eighth at Combina- 
tion Park in 13 seconds, has stepped a 
full mile at Eeadville in 2.03 1-2 and has 
beaten everything put up there against 
him and a good many have been brought 
forward to lower his colors. And at 17 
years old he was apparently as good and 
speedy and with as sound wind as at seven 
years old. He was, the first horse to go 
over the Charles Eiver Speedway after it 
was formally opened, being closely fol- 
lowed by Eandolph K. Clarke with Ean- 
dolph K. 

Kentucky Star has won more blue rib- 
bons than any horse in Xew England. 
In 1903. in the Boston Gentlemen's Driv- 
ing club at Eeadville he won twelve 
straight races. He has never been 
beaten in the Boston Gentlemen's Driving 
club or in the Dorchester Gentlemen's 
Driving club. His owner, Mr. Belledeu. 
who has driven and won more races than 
any amateur reinsman in New England, 
has many silver cups in his den in his 
handsome home at Ashmont, Dorchester. 

The race which excited the most inter- 
est in the Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving 
club in which the Star took place was 
probably the Kentucky Star-Landlord 
race for the pacing championship of the 
speedway, a title which the latter had held 
and defended for several years. The race 
took place on October 2." 1901. The fol-

lowing account was printed at the time. 
It was written by John M. E. Morrill and 
is a fine, vivid bit of description : 

"This race/' said Mr. Morrill, "had been 
a long time in coming, but when it did 
arrive proved to be the greatest race ever 
seen on any sjseedway. I doubt if there 
were ever four quarters as fast as these 
paced on any race track in the world. I 
say four quarters, for these two horses 
went the third heat without getting the 
word, but driving at top speed all the 
way, and this one quarter must surely 
have been as fast as the fourth quarter, 
which was in .29 3-4. The Star won this 
heat, really making four heats he won 
instead of three. It was a great race to 
see, and those who missed it will probably 
never have the chance to see its like again. 
The conditions were right, and both horses 
were right on edge, and although Land- 
lord was defeated, he was not disgraced. 
He put up a noble fight, but there is not 
a horse in the world today, in my opinion, 
which can take Kentucky Star's measure 
on that speedway when he is on edge. 
The race was timed very carefully by 
three gentlemen of experience in timing 
and in driving speedy horses. If the 
four quarters which were done separately 
had been put in together, the mile would 
have been in 1.57 3-4. Just think of it ! 
A faster mile than the world has ever seen 
at the trot or pace. 

"Well ! Now for the race itself. It is 
a beautiful afternoon — one of those lovely 
fall days when all nature smiles, and the 
owner of a fast horse smiles also. Ken- 
tucky Star comes on the Speedway with 
that easy, gliding gait for which he is 
noted, and he certainly lookecl and acted 
as if he felt confident that he was to 
dethrone the/King of the Speedway — that 
good horse Landlord which has heretofore 
defended his title against all comers. 
First one and then the other comes flying 
down the stretch getting warmed up for 
the greatest effort in their lives, and the 
cranks are eagerly watching every move 
of both horses and drivers. After a little 
delay Starter S. Walter Wales gives the 
warning bell and instructs the drivers to 
go up and turn and come together for the 
word. They swing around just below 
Morton street and come for the wire like 
an express train let loose on a western 

prairie. They don't get the word, as our 
friend Young is too far ahead, well know- 
ing that every foot he can get the best of 
at the start is worth so much at the finish. 
After scoring a few times more, Starter 
Wales gives them the word, with Land- 
lord a little in the lead. The race is on 
and both men driving like demons — Mr. 
Belledeu to set the fastest record the 
speedway has ever seen, and Mr. Young 
to get at least one heat, if possible, for he 
realizes he is up against the stiffest game 
he has ever struck. Down to the eighth 
Kentucky Star is out in the lead and grad- 
ually pulling away, but Young is driving 
for all he knows and Landlord -is respond- 
ing nobly. It is of no use, for the Star 
holds him safe. And now they are near- 
ing the finish line, and such pacing that 
it makes one's hair stand on end to see it. 
On and on they come, and both men 
yelling like Indians and both horses 
straining every nerve. Kow they cross 
the line, Kentucky Star about three 
lengths ahead; time .29. Kow they jog 
back for the second heat, and after a little 
jockeying for the start, they are off, both 
Young and Belledeu driving right away 
from the wire for all that's in them. 
Landlord is working at Young, while the 
Star is coming on with that powerful 
stride. He is up beside Landlord and by 
him like a flash of greased lightning. As 
they near the finish line the clip is too hot 
for the old Boman, and he drops back a 
bit. The Star comes on, ever increasing 
his lead at every stride, and he crosses the 
line ahead of Landlord by several lengths ; 
time .29 1-4. 

"Once more they jog back for the word, 
and as they turn and come for the wire it 
is plain to see that each driver is playing 
for the best start he can get. So eager 
are they that they go the full course with- 
out getting the word. The Star wins, 
but it doesn't count ; time for this heat 
.29 3-4. They go up by the starter, and 
as they swing for the word, Mr. Young 
sits down for one of those old-fashioned 
drives, with grim determination written 
on every feature of his face. Mr. Belle- 
deu is no less determined, but much more 
confident. This time they get the word 
and they go away boiling, on the last heat 
of a most wonderful race. They are driv- 
ing like madmen and thev are coming

better than a two-minute clip. The Star 
is soon out in the lead, but the least mis- 
take on his part would lose the heat; but 
he is not making any mistakes, he is put- 
ting up a world's record. Three hundred 
feet from the finish now, and he is pull- 
ing away from Landlord at every stride, 
and crosses the line about seven lengths 
ahead, in .29 3-4, the winner of the fastest 
race of its kind on record." 


A race which excited fully as much 
interest as the Kentucky Star-Landlord 
contest was held on the speedway on 
Patriot's Day, 1900, between Mr. Brand's 
Dr. G (whose picture appears on another 
page) and Mr. Morrill's Vondell. The 
ground had been fought over twice by the 
same horses previously, each having one 
race to its credit. Excitement, therefore, 
over the decisive race ran high among 
club members and their friends. It was 
estimated that 4000 people lined the Blue 
Hill avenue speedway, covered the fences 
and walls and utilized every hillock and 
"coign of vantage" in the vicinity. Many 
handsome equipages were out especially 
for the race, among the turn-outs being 
a four-horse tally-ho which came loaded 
with gentlemen and ladies from Jamaica 
Plain. The weather had been bad and 
the regular stretch used for racing was 
like a ploughed field so a track was laid 
out further down the avenue towards 
Grove Hall. 

S. Walter Wales was the starter and 
the judges were Fred S. Eldredge, W. P. 
Boutelle, Hollis P. Gallup and Council- 
man S. Howard Mildram. The owners 
drove. Yondell made a break in the 
first heat just when things were going 
well and Dr. G came under the wire in 
32 seconds. In the second Dr. G returned 
the compliment and the heat was Yon- 
dell's. The best heat was the third when 
neither horse broke but fought every inch 
of the way Dr. G winning by a nose in 
32 1-4 seconds. For the fourth and 
deciding heat each driver realized that no 
advantage could be given and the horses 
scored clown fully twenty times before 
getting the word. Everv inch was fought 
but just before the finish Voridell both 

broke and threw a shoe, and Dr. G came in 
the winner in .32 1-4. The event was fully 
celebrated later at the club house. Echoes 
of this famous race are still heard among 
the old guard. 


The Boston Herald of Jan. 29th, 1897, 
had the following regarding Jewett, the 
famous old snow horse long owned by 
John M. E. Morrill. 

Jewett has gone and his place is still un- 
filled. There has not been sleighing enough 
this winter to determine what horse is 
champion of the Boston snow path, but it 
is doubtful if there soon appears another 
such distinctive leader of the snow 
brigade in this city as was Jewett (2.14) 
the black pacing son of Allie West. 
Although his gait in late years was that 
of the pacer, this famous horse first 
appeared upon the turf as a trotter and 
acquired a record of 2.20 at the lateral 
gait, and was champion three-year-old of 
the world. For three years Jewett was 
king of the road among the merry sleigh 
riders, and that, too, after he was 15 years 
old. Jewett was a remarkable horse. "I 
never expect to breed another as good," 
said Uncle Isaac Smith of Lexington. 
Ky. "He was the best horse I ever had 
or expect to have," said Mr. Morrill, his 
Boston owner. It was at Lexington, in 
Otober, 1879. that Jewett trotted into 
prominence and the world's record of 
2.23 1-2 for three-year-olds, and for the 
next 14 years, in both grand and minor 
circuits, he was a prominent and success- 
ful actor. Sold a few months ago and 
shipped to Buffalo, he met with an acci- 
dent just before he was to be unloaded 
that caused his death. 

It is a coincidence that in the wide- 
awake horse city of Toledo, the home of 
so many fast ones, the chestnut pacer 
Charley Friel, another son of Allie West, 
now 20 years old, should be this season 
as for several seasons past, the monarch 
of the snow road. Says a local paper. 
"All sorts of money has been spent and 
all kinds of horses rmrob^sed and brought 
here to beat Cbarlev "Friel. but today as 
for even vears past. Cbarlev Friel is the 
unbeaten horse on the snow." 









President Almond S. Gushee is a 
charter member and has been one of 
the hardest-working and most useful 
men in the club. He was secretary 
of the racing and speedway com- 
mittee for two years and the chairman 
for three years, and has given very largely 
of his time in the performance of detail 
work to further the interests of the club. 
A proof of his popularity was shown at 
the first annual banquet of the club, when 
he was given a handsome and costly 
chair by the members. Mr. Gushee 
was born in 1856, in Appleton, Me., 
and passed his early years on a farm. 
He had received the ordinary country 
school education, but, aspiring to some- 
thing better, came to Boston in 1875, 
almost penniless, and worked for a 
year. He then returned to Maine, and, 
taking the money he had earned to pay 
current expenses, and working for his 
board, he graduated from the state nor- 
mal school at Castine, and later taught 
for two years. He returned to Boston in 
1879, and in 1880 began the milk busi- 
ness on the spot where he now lives, at 
the corner of Washington and Fuller 
streets, Dorchester. His early years in 
business were days of the hardest work, 
but hard work and honesty brought their 
reward, and later years have brought 
more leisure. . He likes and drives good 
horses, and is the owner of Captain Hall, 
a black pacer with a mark of 2.20 1-4. 
Captain Hall was the wonder of the day 
at Marshfield last year, and won the high- 
est encomiums. Few horses owned in the 
club have more speed. The most famous 
horse that Mr. Gushee has owned was 
Trinket (2.14) which held the world's rec- 
ord for four-year-olds for eight years, 
being finally dethroned by Jay Eye See, 
named and then owned by J. I. Case, and 
which at . one time trotted the world- 
famous Maud S for the world's cham- 
pionship, losing by a half second. More 

extended mention of Trinket will be 
found elsewhere in this volume. 


First Vice-President George W. D'Arcy 
was born 37 years ago, in Apponaug, 
E. I., was educated there, and came 
to Boston in 1882. He began business 
for himself in 1896, and is the proprietor 
of several large furnishing goods stores 
and the president of the Brattleboro 
Overall Co., with offices at 77 Summer 
street. He has lived for the past 
ten years at 49 Dix street. Among 
the speedy horses he has owned are Ken- 
wood, 2.14; B. C, 2.14 1-4; Ben Strath- 
more, 2.18, and his present pretty mare, 
Bonnets o' Blue, 2.18 3-4. 


Second Vice-President Jacob Mosser is 
a charter member of the club, a Boston 
business man, and known also as a lover 
and owner of good horses. He is a mem- 
ber of the leather firm of Keck, Mosser & 
Co., with offices at 54 Lincoln street. He 
comes of the best German stock and was 
born and educated in Allentown, Pa., 
coming to Boston and entering business 
in 1883. He is a charter member of the 
Colonial club of Dorchester, but is affili- 
ated with no other social or secret bodies. 
In horse-flesh he affects pacers, and has 
owned Ella H, with a mark of 2.19 1-4, 
and Eosewood, with a mark of 2.22. He 
owns Nellie Bly, one of the best known 
horses in the club, which has a mark of 
2.25 1-4, and the handsome grey gelding, 
George K, the speediest and best horse 
he has ever owned. 


Secretary George H. Greenwood proba- 
bly enjoys a larger acquaintance with men 
than any other man in the club. For 
nearly 30 years he has kept the store for

ington and Boylston streets, Boston. He 
has been, in a business sense, but once 
away from the corner in all these years, 
and that was while his present location 
was being rebuilt, and he was the first 
man back when the building was complet- 
ed. Mr. Greenwood has a large trade 
among business and theatrical folk. He 
has a wife and son, and the family have 
lived in Dorchester about 18 years. His 
present home is at the corner of Mellville 
avenue and Wellesley park. He is a 
charter member of the Colonial club, and 
Mrs. Greenwood is prominent in the af- 
fairs of the Dorchester Woman's club. Mr. 
Greenwood is a member of the Massachu- 
setts lodge of Masons. He was born in 
Westboro and has lived in Boston for 
about 30 years. 


Treasurer Bobert S. Fitch has lived in 
Dorchester about 20 years. For the. past 
14 years he has been in the real estate 
business here and has the care and dis- 
posal of some of the largest estates. His 
home is on Morrill street. He has owned 
and driven several speedy horses, includ- 
ing Little Fred, with a mark of 2.19 1-4; 
Lewiston Belle; and the brown gelding, 
Douglas, which he drove to a record of 
2.22 1-4. Mr. Fitch was one of the first 
members of the Dorchester Gentlemen's 
Driving club, was chairman of the racing 
and speedway committee in 1900, second 
vice-president in 1901, and was made 
treasurer in 1902. He is a member of 
Union lodo;e of Masons. 


Director Peter J. Fitzgerald was born 
in Ireland, 58 years ago, but came to this 
country with his parents when a child. 
After his education, he entered the street 
lighting business, in which he has ever 
since been engaged. His early life was 
passed in Pennsylvania. He has been in 
business in Boston and lived in Hyde 
Park for about 15 years. He is president 
and general manager of the Rising Sun 
Street Lighting Co., with offices at 186 
Devonshire street. He has owned Lady 
Madison, 2.20 1-2, for years the trotting 
champion of the speedway; Grover C, a 

pacer with a- mark of 2.27; Prince 
Eda, by Broomeall, he by Stranger, a very 
promising five-year-old and other speedy 
ones. No man in the club is more highly 


Director Hollis P. Gallup is Boston born 
and has lived in Boston and Dorchester 
the most of his life. His father was a 
stable keeper, but died when Mr. Gallup 
was a child. The latter has been a dealer 
in horses and cattle, milk dealer, coal and 
wood dealer, and stable keeper at the 
same time. For some years his stable was 
on Dorchester avenue, opposite Melville 
avenue. For about ten years his large 
boarding and sale stable has been on 
Barnes street, and it was in his office that 
the Easy club (which furnished several 
members to Dorchester Gentlemen's Driv- 
ing club) met. Mr. Gallup is the 
only member of the club who has never 
missed a meeting, and he has put in more 
new members than any other man. He 
has owned a good many speedy and valu- 
able horses, among them Velvet by Edge- 
mark; Bob Fitz, 2.17 1-4; Rubsley G, 
2.16 3-4; Queenie, 2.20 1-4; Dark Secret; 
Celia; Nagaina by Arion; Dewey by son 
of Electioneer, dam Josephine by Daniel 
Lambert; and the reliable old Ashmont 
needing no introduction. 


Director Fred S. Eldredge was born in 
1863 in South Harwich, where he re- 
ceived his education. He came to Boston 
when he was 18 years old and entered 
the employ of C. D. Swain & Co., the 
Roxbury grocers. He began business for 
himself as a grocer 21 }^ears ago. Mr. 
Eldredge was always a lover of horses, a 
good driver and a good judge of horses. 
He bought and sold horses for a good 
many years and of late years has trained 
them for and driven then in races. He 
was the owner of Silkey, the pacer which 
made such a phenomenal win at Combina- 
tion Park a few years ago, and which Mr. 
Eldredge converted from a trotter, and 
he has handled the lines and won money 
in many a hard-fought race. Mr. 
Eldrede,e is married and lives on Anarell

J. Eollin Stuart, Jr., who was this year 
made director in the club, of which he 
was one of the earliest charter members, 
was born in historic Tarrytown, N. Y., on 
January 13, 1866. He went as a boy to 
Milwaukee where his early years were 
spent . and his preliminary education 
gained. Coming to Boston, he gradu- 
ated from the English High School 
and entered business in 1883. In 
1887, with others, he established the 
blacking house of Pike, Ordway & Stuart, 
which in 1890 was incorporated as the 
Boston Blacking Company at 96 Beverly 
street, Boston. The business is a very ex- 
tended and prosperous one, with dealings 
all over this country and in many foreign 
countries. Mr. Stuart, although a quiet 
member of the Dorchester Gentlemen's 
Driving club, has been a valued one. He 
is the owner of Susie F (2.10 1-4), the 
fastest trotter in the club, holder of the 
championship ribbon, winner of the 
silver cup in 1904 for the trotter winning 
the most races on the speedway, and 
which has never been defeated in a race 
on the speedway. Mr. Stuart has also 
owned the pacer Dempsey (2.10 1-4), 
Willie Bobs, a pacer (2.14), and Vixie 
Adams, a fast pacer but without an offi- 
cial mark. Mr. Stuart lives in a hand- 
some home at 156 Ruthven street, in the 
Elm Hill district, Boxbury. 


Director Walter E. Newbert was born 
in Appleton, Maine, 31 years ago, and 
was rocked in his cradle by the present 
president of the club. Mr. Newbert was 
educated in his native town and after 
leaving school went to New York, where 
he was six years with the Oaks Manufac- 
turing Co., dealers in dye stuffs, and was 
later six years with the same company in 
Boston. He began business for himself 
about three years ago. With his brother 
he forms the Newbert Color Company of 
Milk street, Boston. He is a charter 
member of the Dorchester Gentlemen's 

Driving club and has always been one of 
its most active members. He has served 
on many committees and for the year 
1904 was chairman of the racing and 
speedway committee. He was elected 
director this year. Mr. Newbert was for 
some years owner of the chestnut mare 
Alice B, the first horse to hold the 
championship trotting ribvon. He is 
married and lives at Ashmont.

1848, and came to Boston as a young 
man. He entered the baking business, 
and began business for himself in Boston 
30 years ago or more. He came to Dor- 
chester about nine years ago, and is the 
proprietor of the Home bakery, corner of 
Washington and Boslin streets. He owns 
the real estate, and also lives there. Mr 
Young is a veteran horseman and one of 
the "foxiest" drivers in the club. He was 
driving fast horses when some of the pres- 
ent veterans were in their swaddling 
clothes, and at an earlier period even 
than that. He has owned many fast 
horses among them the famous Landlord, 
for five years the unbeaten "King of the 


S. Walter Wales, the former president 
of the club of which he is a charter mem- 
ber, is a member of one of Doi Chester's 
oldest and best families. He was born in 
Dorchester, educated there and has always 
lived there. Few men are better known, 
few as well loved and none are more 
highly respected. He has been in the 
stable business at Grove Hall for the past 
twenty years and is the proprietor of the 
Boulevard stables. He has given unstint- 
edly of his time for the club, and for 
several years acted as starter on the speed- 
way, never missing a race. As an instance 
of his faithfulness to duty it should be 
said that as president he was never absent 
from a meeting. His son, S. Walter 
Wales, Jr., commonly called' "Junior" by 
his father, is the dashing young horseman 
who has acted as marshal for the club at 
the Readville track, and for other races 
at the same place. Mr. Wales is the owner 
of Rondo, a pacer with a mark of 2.14 1-4. 
He has owned Chrome, a trotter with a 
mark of 2.26 1-4, made in a seven-heat 
race ; Clara, a trotter with a mark of 2.30 
and a record of 15 miles an hour ; and 
Kitty, a trotter with a mark of 2.28. 

a young man. He began as salesman 
for the firm of A. B. Crocker & Co., then 
the largest felt house in the country. On 
the death of the senior member he or- 
ganized the Boston Felting company, of 
which he was the head, and which was 
conducted with great success until the 
formation of the American Felt company 
which merged all the leading felt inter- 
ests in the country. The Boston Felting 
company was among others absorbed, 
and Mr. Brand was made manager of the 
Boston branch, a position he still holds, 
with offices at 112 Beach street. For 
several years he made his home at the 
South End, in old Ward 17, but about 
ten years ago bought the estate num- 
bered 4 Melville avenue, one of the 
handsomest on that aristocratic street, 
where he lives with his wife. Mr. Brand 
is a charter member of the Dorchester 
Gentlemen's Driving club, of which he 
was clerk for several years. He is a 
member of St. John lodge and Dorchester 
Royal Arch Chapter of Masons, a 
charter member of the Colonial club of 
Dorchester, a member of the Boot and 
Shoe club, and of the Trade club of 
Boston. He has always had a love for, 
and interest in, horses and has been and 
is the owner of some speedy ones. 
Among them may be mentioned Dr. G, 
pacer, 2.20 1-4; Princess Ebilo, a trotter 
with the same mark; Bath Belle, a trot- 
ter with a mark of 2.26 1-2; King Wilkes, 
a trotter with a mark of 2.26 1-4; Joe 
King by May King, a pacer from the 
celebrated Lookout farm, which as a 
three-year-old took second money at 
Brockton in 2.19 1-2 ; and Helvetia, a 
handsome brown filly by Bingen, now 
owned by J. M. E. Morrill. He was part 
owner with Mr. Linnehan of the pacer 
Reno K, later owned by Mr. Linnehan, 
with a mark of 2,17 1-4.' 


Ex-President Frederick J. Brand was 
born in Connecticut, and received his 
education there, but came to Boston as 


Charles H. Belledeu, one of the found- 
ers of the club, its first secretaiw and the 
secretary for the first few years of its ex- 
istence, is a native of Stonington, Maine, 
where he was born 40 years ago. He 
Avofked on his father's farm until he was 
17 years old, but was no - less a T over of 
fast horses as a bov than as a man — with

less leisure and less money, however, than 
in later years. He came to the city un- 
known and almost penniless, but with 
good, honest, down-east grit and self-con- 
fidence. He learned the carpenters' trade, 
began business for himself while a very 
young man, and as a contractor and fitter- 
up of fine offices now does one of the larg- 
est businesses in the city. He owns a 
beautiful home at Ashmont, where he lives 
with his wife, who was a charming south- 
ern lady. A spacious and finely appoint- 
ed stable on the grounds shelters his stud 
of horses. Mr. Belledeu is one of the most 
prominent horsemen in Boston, and one 
of the most prominent members of the 
Boston Driving club, of which he was for 
some years chairman of the racing and 
speedway committee. He refused to serve 
on any committee last year, preferring to 
have "a year of fun." He won 32 races 
during the season, a record never equalled 
by an amateur. Mr. Belledeu is a 32nd 
degree mason and a member of the Mys- 
tic Shrine. He is the owner of Kentucky 
Star with a record of 2.09 1-4 to wagon, 
.and has owned Ben H, 2.12 ; Ned Wins- 
low, 2.12; Susie K, 2.14 1-2; Ludlow, 
2.19 1-2; Doctor G, 2.21 1-4; Prince 
Wilkes, 2.22 1-2; Black Diamond, 2.32; 
Mollie B, 2.35. 


John M. E. Morrill, the first treasurer 
■of the club, has for the past twenty years 
been one of Boston's prominent builders, 
and Greater Boston and other towns and 
cities have many handsome and costly 
structures, public and private, which he 
has reared. He is a native of Connecticut, 
w r here he was born 45 years ago. He came 
to Boston as a young man and almost im- 
mediately began business for himself. He 
is a 32nd degree Mason, a Knight Tem- 
plar, member of the Boyal Arcanum, the 
Knights of Honor and the Order of the 
Pilgrim Fathers. He is married and 
lives on Alpha road, Dorchester. He is 
.a skillful driver, a devoted lover of the 
horse, and has owned many fast ones. 
His name is inextricably interwoven in 
the history of the club. 


Eandolph K. Clarke, .first vice-president 
in 1904, is a native of New Brunswick. 

He came to Boston in 1869, and has for 
many years been prominent in the whole- 
sale clothing trade. He is on the directo- 
rate and is manufacturing manager of the 
Ehodes & Eipley company, of Lincoln 
street. He is one of the early members 
of the Dorchester Gentlemen's Driving 
club and has for a good many years been 
prominent as a lover of horses and owner 
and driver of some speedy ones. He is 
one of the oldest and best-known road 
drivers in or about Boston. He is a mem- 
ber of Gate of the Temple lodge of Ma- 
sons, of St. Matthews chapter and of St. 
Omer commandery. He lives at 14 Wol- 
cott street. Among the speedy horses 
be has owned are Grey Dan, Black Pilot, 
Blackstone Maid, Bonny Doon, Creole 
Maid, all fast roadsters; Eandolph K. 
(for three years king of the snow speed- 
way), and his present speedy, graceful 
pacer, Gladys M, with a mark of 2.21 1-4. 
Mr. Clarke has been marshal at most 
of the big parades of horsemen held for 
a good many years in Boston. 


Former Director John W. Linnehan, one 
of the most active and hustling members 
of the club, was born in Topsfield, Mass., 
44 years ago, was educated there, and came 
to Boston about 14 years ago. He was 
for two years cloth examiner for A. Shu- 
man & Co. ; for several 3 r ears on the road 
for Boston and New York trade papers 
and then entered the employ of Gilbert 
Brothers & Co., importers of dye stuffs and 
chemicals. He began business for him- 
self in 1890, as a dealer in anilines and 
colors at 185-7 High street. He is the 
gamest of sportsmen. He has been- the 
owner of Budweiser, 2.211-4; Eex, 
2.13 1-4, and Beno K, 2.17 1-4, all pacers, 
and all well known in the New England 
circuit; of Mattie Miller, a trotter with 
a mark of 2.30; of Little Bud, a phenome- 
nal little pacer, and of other speedy ones. 
Mr. Linnehan, with his wife, a pretty 
and charming woman and genuine 
"chum" for her husband, and daughter 
lives on Grace street, Ashmont.

wa} r , and one who has owned more fast 
horses than any man in the club, not a 
])rofessional horse dealer, is the most. 
"Boston" man in the organization. He 
was born in Boston as were all his fore- 
bears on both the jDaternal and maternal 
side, back to the early part of the seven- 
teenth century when the original settlers 
of Boston came from the other side. Mr. 
Blaney has lived all his life in Boston. 
He is in the metal business with offices 
on Devonshire street. He lives at 981 
Morton street, Dorchester. He is a game 
sportsman and usually has from one to 
three horses at the Beadville or speedway 
races. His black pacer, Mutineer, won 
the silver cup for the speedway races last 
year. Among the horses owned by Mr. 
Blaney are : General Tracey, chestnut 
gelding, by Einaldo; Lucy Hunter, bay

Edward G. Eichardson, the press rep- 
resentative of the club, is one of the best 
known newspaper men in Boston and is 
connected with the staff of the Transcript. 
He "does" the city hall as a steady thing 
but has reported all the most important 
murder and sensational cases, military 
encamjmients, etc., for his paper for a 
long time. He was born in Eoxbury in 
1871 and comes of the best old revolu- 
tionary stock, his great-grandfather hav- 
ing been one of the Boston Tea Party. He 
began his newspaper work when he was 
14 years old on the Transcript, was a 
full-fledged reporter at 17, left to help 
form the City Press Association and re- 
mained with it for the six years of its 
existence and then went back to the 
Transcript where he has since remained. 
In 1902-3 he was grand dictator of the 
Knights of Honor in Massachusetts. He 
is married and lives at Ashmont. Mr. 
Richardson has been of great assistance to 
the Driving Club and by his pen and 
through his influence with politicians and 
newspaper men has helped materially to 
procure favors and improvements. 


A charter member of the club, its first 
clerk, and one of the best known drivers 
on the New England circuit is Edgar 0. 
Haddock, who knows a horse "from A to 
Izzard." Mr. Haddock was born 45 years 
ago in Portsmouth, N. H., and when Tit- 
tle more than a boy went out West, and 
for a number of years was a "cow 
puncher," a vocation which he looks back 
upon with infinite relish. He was just 
the age for that kind of life, and describes 
it as "camping out and getting paid for 
it." He came to Dorchester about 20 
years ago, was in the hay and grain 
business for a Avhile with his brother, the 
old league pitcher, and for some years has 
been inspector of lights for the Eising 
Sun Street Lighting Company. Mr. 
Haddock is married and lives in the Grove 
Hall district. Said Mr. Coggswell, the 
well known writer on horse matters, of 
Mr. Haddock a year ago: "In the sulky

at the club's matinees he has been a 
power and is usually behind a horse in 
every race. In these events he has 
driven to their records Grover C. (2.27), 
Brightness (2.24 1-4), Azote (2.28), Yel- 
low Ash (2.24 1-2), Billy Barlow 
(2.26 3-4), Authentic (2.20 1-4), made 
Princess Ebilo get her mark of 2.20 1-4, 
won the 2.19 class two years in succession 
with Ornament (2.18 1-4) over Budweiser, 
Capt. Hall, Susie F., etc., made Capt. Hall 
step better than 2.17 to beat Brightness, 

and Kentucky Star pace in 2.10 to beat 
Wilton Boy (2.11), while last fall he drove 
Early Bird, Jr.. in the match against May- 
sie Sidney for the championship of the club 
that took six heats to decide the latter a 
winner. Not a heat was slower than 
1.04, and a couple were officially timed 
in a minute flat. It was the fastest race 
ever held on the Mattapan speedway. 
Mr. Haddock's skill with the reins is at- 
tested by the fact that he has not been 
back of the money in all the races in 
which he has taken part."

On another page will be found a pic- 
ture of certain members of the "Easy 
Club/' an unincorporated, unofficered, un- 
known-to-the-general-public body but still 
in its day a very live and jolly one. Its 
membership embraced some fifty or sixty 
men, many of whom boarded their horses 
at Hollis P. Gallup's stable, and the club 
gave several members to the Dorchester 
Gentlemen's Driving Club. The "club 
house" was Mr. Gallup's spacious and 
cheerful office, and the meetings were fre- 
quent although not regular. The club 
was not, however, without its social func- 
tions, one of the most notable being a 
genuine "barn dance" at the stables. The 
main floor was cleared for dancing, for 
which and for a promenade concert an 
orchestra was engaged; even the horses 
took part in the affair for fancy straw 
was strewn in front of the stalls, and the 
handsome animals were led out for inspec- 
tion; and 150 members and guests of the 
club sat down to an elaborate supper 
served in the wagon and harness rooms. 
The situation was unique, and the whole 
affair was highly enjoyed. Another 
notable night was in 1895 when Mr. Gal- 
lup was summoned from his stable to his 
home, which he found in the possession of 
his friends and fellow members of the 
club who presented him with the hand- 
some picture of which a reproduction is 
here given. The men whose faces appear 
are W. F. Greene, for many years the 
Ashmont Square druggist ; Albert Fel- 
lows, the Ashmont grocer, whose horse 
Rex won the blue ribbon for trotters in 
the Driving club in 1903 ; James A. Hart, 
the fish dealer of Ashmont, for some time 
chef of the Driving' club ; C. T. Reming- 
ton (now dead). M. T. Pooler, H. F. 
Chandler, F. E. Burden, L. J. Malonev, 
Dr. C. H. Miller, W. H. Ellis, Hollis P. 
Gallup, George E. Griffin, Asaph 
Churchill, Bert Stiles, J. G. Gallup and 
E. P. Denn. The presentation was 

only a feature in a long and very jolly 
evening. The picture hangs in Mr. Gal- 
lup's office. 

The reproduction of a little corres- 
pondence which took place about that 
time will revive pleasant memories : 
Mr. T. T. Hartford, Ashmont. 

Dear Sir:— The members of the Easy club 
are desirous of getting up a gentlemen's 
road race, for $500 a corner, to determine 
the fastest horse, owners to drive, and the 
winner to take the purse. Mr. Clarke, Mr. 
Chandler and Mr. Gallup have agreed to 
enter. We understand that you think you 
have a fast one, and if agreeable we would 
be pleased to hear from you at an early date 
as to your feelings in the matter. 

The following entries have been made: 
Randolph K, 2.14 1-4, Mr. R. K. Clarke; 
Smitty Monwood, 2.16 1-4, Mr. H. F. Chand- 
ler; Joe Davis, 2.22 1-2, Mr. H. P. Gallup. 
Appended are records. 

Respectfully yours, 


To this the following reply was re- 
ceived : 

Boston, December, 17, 1895. 
To the Executive Committee of the Easy 


Gentlemen: — Your favor without date at 
hand. As you state therein that you are 
anxious to determine who owns the fastest 
horse, this seems to me a dead easy matter. 
I am satisfied that Mr. Clarke has the fastest 
horse, and from what I have seen of that 
gentleman I thing he is capable of taking 
care of his own affairs without consulting 
the executive committee of the Easy club. 
My advice to you would be to trot horses 
more and talk less. As I keep my horse for 
family and pleasure driving I shall in all 
probability have him on Talbot avenue every 
pleasant day when the sleighing is suitable, 
and as he is always ready for a brush, and 
does not require any preliminary fitting, you 
will have a chance to satisfy the desires of 
the Easy club without the trouble of taking 
up a collection. And in regard to driving: 
In . view of what I saw recently on Talbot 
avenue, I would suggest that others than 
owners had better drive. 




The Easy Club then got in this parting 

Boston, December 4-11-44. 
Mr. T. T. Hartford. 

Dear Sir: — In reply to yours of the cur- 
rent date the executive committee of the 
Easy club begs to state that, wishing 
to foster the speed of Ashmont, and be- 
ing desirous of determining who possesses 
the most of this coveted article, we have 
sent invitations to several gentlemen to 
enter a friendly contest for money, mar- 
bles or a bucket of pigs' feet, the prize 
to be of secondary importance; and from 
many large, double-breasted and voluminous 

expressions of the wonderful speed and en- 
durance of your trotter, we certainly sup- 
posed that you would come in out of the wet. 
We beg you to excuse the omission of the 
date on our previous communication, and re- 
spectfully remind you that the above date 
should be a winner. 

Respectfully yours, 


The respective speed of the horses, it 
should be added, was never determined, 
as the races never took place but the palm 
as a letter writer was unanimously voted 
to Mr. Hartford.

The H. fl. White 


728 Dudley Street, Upham's Corner, 

MRS. WHITE— Lady Assistant and Embalmer 





Fred H. Bellows, one of the gamest and 
sportiest members of the Dorchester Gentle- 
men's Driving Club, and who has "hung up" 
a $50 suit of clothes to be given to the 
member winning the most points in races 
for the season of 1905, is the well-known 
gentlemen's tailor at 182 Tremont street, 
Boston. Mr. Bellows came to Boston un- 
known about 13 years ago and without 
influence other than energy and merit has 
succeeded in building up one of the most 
lucrative businesses in his line. He has a 
very large theatrical and professional trade 
and is always in the forefront as regards 

fashions. He has monthly importations of 
both goods and fashion-plates from the 
principal European centres, and patrons 
always know that they can be accommo- 
dated with the most extreme styles if it is 
their desire. The manufacturing is done on 
the premises under the personal supervision 
of Mr. Bellows and his able assistants. This 
fall the entire third floor at 182 Tremont 
street has been leased by Mr. Bellows who 
is thus better equipped for trade than ever. 
Rain coats and sporting garments are among 
his specialties. Mr. Bellows is the owner of 
Helgamite, the beautiful little pacer, one- 
time champion of the Dorchester speedway 
and many times a blue ribbon winner, whose 
picture appears elsewhere in these columns.
