P. T. CHINN RETURNS TO KENTUCKY T. C. McDowell Lowers Stud Fee of Good Stallion The Manager Flittergold Arrives from East. LEXINGTON, Ky., December 5. Col. and Mrs. Phil T. Chinn arrived today from New York to remain during tlie winter. Flittergold, the brother of Fair Play, which was purchased by Colonel Chinn from Joseph L. Murphy of Philadelphia, to go into service next season at Himyar Stud, also arrived here this morning, shipping in good condition. In the car with him were the horses Tom McTaggart, Sundial II. and Nightstick. Colonel Chinn says Murphy has reserved the rijlit to breed five mares to Flittergold for five years. Major Thomas C. McDowell today announced that the stud fee for The Manager this year will be 00. "I want more representatives running for my horse," said he, "and I have observed that when a merchant offers some desirable article at a price considerably less than its value he invariably attracts custom to his store,. Therefore, instead of raising The Managers fee, which would from every angle be entirely justifiable, I have made it an inducement to owners of good mares." Sam Nesbitt of Montreal, is among those who came here for the sale today. He says he has several magnificent yearlings and weanlings by Doraute at his place. Dr. W. M. Williams of Hopkinsville was at the sale ring this afternoon. West Kentucky horsemen are presenting Dr. Williams to Governor-elect Edwin P. Morrow for a seat on tlie next Kentucky State Racing Commission.
