FLEISCHMANNS PURCHASES Twenty-One Head Imported Fron France and England Arrive in New York. NEW YORK, N. Y., Dec. 9. The horses which were purchased abroad for Julius Fleischmann arrived from London today on the Minnewaska of the Atlantic Transport Line, after a long and trying trip of eleven days. The voyage was one of the roughest ever encountered by the ship and her arrival was delayed for twenty-four hours. Heavy seas and strong head winds held her back. The horses shipped in splendid condition despite the rough seas and the only one to show any distress was a yearling colt, Carlo-man II., by Console, from Carlite Roger. This youngster, the only one of the get of Console sold in France this year, "is a racy fellow. He improved rapidly the last few days of the voyage. Twenty-one head were imported from France and England, and, following an examination by Dr. McCully, were shipped to Aiken. S. C, for the winter. Thomas Mc-Creary. who assisted Mr. Fleischmann in the purchases abroad, arrived on the Minnewaska. He was loud in his praise of the manner in handling the horses. "The trip was a rough one and took eleven days, but the horses stood up in fine style and I have never seen a lot ship better," was his comment The accommodations alloted the thoroughbreds were on the shelter deck, and each horse was stabled in a comfortable box stall. There was plenty of light and the air circulated fully through the quarters during the day. No drafts or rain penetrated the stalls. Harrovian, a bay gelding by Nassovian Lady Brendan, bred by Mr. R. L. Kidston, is one of the best in the shipment. A winner of seven races this year, he is a well proportioned fellow, and Mr. McCrearys present intention is to put him through the steeplechase field. His best race in England this year was in the Finale Handicap at Lingfield, in which he carried 122 pounds, and won easily. Two Irish hurdlers, Booty and Away, both winners this year, will be placed back in training during the winter. Away is a grey colt by Clonmeen Far Gone, while Booty is a brown colt by Levanger Plyte. Dandiprat, a three-year-old French colt, by Sans Le Sou Dame Marie II. will also b3 schooled for Continued on sixteenth page. FLEISCHMANNS PURCHASES - . .
