THE SCR ANTON TRIBUNE-MONDAY, JULY 29, 1901.
BN OIUFTIX nne his father hnel
rlilven nil Hip wny from Monroe
fount. Illinois', to the Oklnhoinn
border, mid thorn. IIvIiik for
three month In their rickety old
wnson, had iiliinned nnel earned Im
patiently lor the day when the kIrhhI
nhot would oiien to them the Rates of
the pinmlHPd lnntl The hoy was .'2 his
heart was set on "owning his own
farm," and day by day, ns boomers and
sooneis swnimed Into the waiting ilty
of tents shnntlcs and nirnviinn hi
chanres of pilnltiR the land he had
chosen for his own eipvv perceptibly
He noted the pumps of desperate
men, mounted on swift hoise, mined
to the teeth, lurklncr alotiR the marpln
of the ftee land. Theie were hundreds
of them. There were other bands equal
ly detet mined and equally leeklei-s,
who rame to the bordei In light KtioiiK
Wagon", diawn by two or four Knllop
lng mule ready to iap with the
swiftest and hold their ptlyes een at
the point of the rllle. With supIi Dan
felt that he had unall ehanec to re.iph
and maintain the quartet section upon
which he and his fnther hail tesohed
to build their new hoinp. Their horse
was old and slow, their poor wngon
was literally fulling to piece In the
Ions drouRht, and scheme as ho inlRht,
Han could think of nothing better than
to follow hl fathei's advice and tide
with him In the old wagon with thp
forloin hope of getting n foothold
after the ilepter boomers had been
The enger l"in had bpRRPd his fnther
to let him make the race on foot. It
was full four nillps to thp pdRp of thPlr
chosen section, but thp outh was suro
he could easily distance the old plow
"You d have to ro unnimed, Dan,"
said the old man, "and they'a kill jou
like a rabbit before the.v'd lpt you hold
th.it claim In ptme. It's one of the
best In the ownshlp, and I'd rather
lose the whole territory than lose jou,
As the lnt day of uniting came and
went Dan was In nn lnermlttent fever
of anxiety and dlspalr. He mingled
anions thp most lawless men of that
gtinggling anny, which stretched smith
and west for miles that nlRht complet
ing pi epilations for the desperate race
of the morrow. It was past midnight
when'he came back to the wagon ami
wokp his father.
"Dad," he began, hesitatingly; "I'm
going to ask jou a fnvor."
"No. Dan,' drowsed Hip old man,
thrusting his head out under the Haps
of the wagon cover, "I know ou want
to make thp mn on foot. I won't hdc
it. You "
"But I don't," whispered Dan, coming
clover. "I Just want you to let me go
it alonp. 1 ptomlsp jou I won't walk
or go on foot. I'll tide. l'e got a new
"What Is it?" ns the youth hesitated.
"I won't tell ou" (doggedly)
"Because jou wouldn't let me do It
If you knew. Come, d.id, don't say no,
because because "'
"Well, If jou bay 'no,' tlang If I don't
do it anjhow."
Dan's father was tllcnt for a mom
ent and tlipn said:
"What about mp?"
"You must drive in alonp. Take your
time. Don't woirj' about mp. You
know where our section is. Well, when
you get there I'll be in vosses.slon.
Leave It to me, there's a good old
"Gol darn your hide, Dan," whimper
ed the old man, "I believe you can do
it But don t tnke no desperate
chances. Remember jour maw's heart
Is all sewed up In you Dan.'
So it w.ks agiecd. Dan waited till
his father was asleep, took his Win
chester down, filled Ills pockets with
cartridges and slipped away into the
darkened city of tents and Catalans.
Those who witnessed the frightful
scenes enacted on that' day n oWen
years ago, when Oklahoma wa. tin own
open to the boomeis, agiee that the
wild ferocity of the inee, thp monstious
deviltry of despeiadoes who, lacing
ahead of oncoming squadions of set
tlers, set Hip to the long dty gians,
the despair and exhiuMlon of those on
foot, the plight of helples women nnd
children trampled by men and horse,
the horior, the Insnnlty, the pity of It
nil, have neer been ndequntcly de
scribed. One of the foiemost vehicles In that
mad race was a IIrIU mountain wagon,
drawn by four fast galloping giey
mules. Two men fully aimed sat on
the single seat, urging the beasts to
top flight; two otheis sat upon the
long sheet-Iron feed box that bttetehed
along the bed of the wagon. There
were four desperate men, nnd ns their
flying vehicle bounded acios the ptalro
they even dared to fire their rltles at
the horses of tlvnls who clattered
abreast or bui passed them, now and
then killing a horse and laughing ns
the battered rider tolled over nnd over
in the dust glass.
But some of the flying hoisemen who
escaped the bullets of these reckless
wagoners contrived reengo more ef
fective and more, fai-i caching than
haphazard bullets. The. wagon had
raced for neatly three miles when the
driver suddenly noticed for ahead, di
rectly In thn path of their piogiepR-,
perhaps a mile away, a wienth of blue,
bieeze-drlven nnd flecked with red, n
cloud that rolled townid them, first
along the giound, then mounting and
wavering tipwnid like a tidal wave of
smoke and ill p.
"The pralre's on fire'" shouted tho
flrlver. suddenly checking his mules.
They could csmell the hot smoke now.
It was rolling swiftly towaids them, a
great half-circle, two mtlon wide, U
teady panic had seized every fcoul In
the path of that Hip. Men, women
nnd boys for n moment fotgot their
desperate greed nnd turned backwnid
or struggled wildly to teach a swamp
or green thicket where stunted willows
or patches of lush ginss hinted nt sonic
slender protection from the llerco but
twlftly passing wave of Are.
The wagoners dilvlng the four grny
mulefl wme now thoroughly terroi
Htilkcn. Tho veiy beasts which had
dragged them toward this danger of
their own cowardly making now show
ed moie courage than they.
"Tuin backl Turn back!" screamed
the two men on tho feed box, dropping
their rifles nnd clinging to the rails
like drunken seamen as the wagon
whirled to retreat.
"Throw out that damned box!" howl
ed tho driver. "lighten the, wagon.
We got to race now for sure."
The lone encet-lron box was quickly
slipped from tho wngon. The cowards
even throw nway their guns, their am
munition nnd their tentnge In tho
frantic effoit to lessen the load of tho
now stampeded mules as they flew to-
WMtd a distant e-wuinp In the well-nigh
hopeless lace with coming death.
The moon was high thnt night when
Daddy Grimn, mounted on his bare
back Dobbin, and laughing nnd crying
In tho tumult of his Jo, found his boy
Dan, llllc In baud, standln? guard upon
the ioi nor of their tou'tid fiuuitcr
section. "Pinlse Clod, Daniel, yer nllvo an' nil

howled the old fellow hugging his son.
"All right, daddy, and I'e got the
"And how In the name of good (Tod,
Daniel, did jou do It? How did you
come'"' The old chap was holding his
boy off at nrm's length, peering Into
his face with the Incredulity of over
mastering happiness. "How did j'ou
ever get through thut Are?"
Hey diddle dldJIe, the cat and the fiddle ;
The cow jumped over the moon ;
The hitle dof laughed to see such sport.
And the dish ran alter the spoon,

John H. Raflerty, In Chicago
DISRAELI'S MAIDEN SPEECH.
He Expected to Conquer but Was
Piomptly Hooted Down.
From Jlacmllllan's Magazine.
One night early In 1SJS (the year after
he had tailed in his contest as a Radical
for the botoiigh of High Wycombe)
UenJ.inlm Disraeli, fitting in the
Stranger's Galleiy of the House of
t'ommons, llstpned to the dsbate on
th nddiess In which Loid John Itus.
sell Macauley, Stanley, Rulwcr nnd
other leading members of the hou-e
took ii.n t. Next day he wiote to his
sister. "Was at the House of Commons
jeMeiday duiing the whole of the de
bateone of the llnest -we have had for
years. Macaulaj" was admirable, but
between ouisehes, I could (loot the in
nil. This entre nous. I was neer
more confident of anythlrg than that
I tnulel cany oveiythlng before mo In
that House. The time will come."
The time did come four ears later,
when on Dee T, 1S.17 Dlsiaell, having
been returned ns a Tori stood up In
the House of Commons to make his
mnldPn speech. The story of that
historic fiasco has neer been fully told.
What Is geneially known Is that DIs
rarll wns Inteirupted by bursts of
Ironical laughter almost from the be
ginning of his speech, and that nt
length, utteiahly unable, to catch the
enr of the House, he concluded by
shouting nt the utmost pitch of his
voice the famous phrase: "Though I
sit clown now, the time will come when
you wjll hear me." nut tho whole
episode, what led up to It nnd what
followed It, Is moat Interesting.
Tho subject of the debate wns a
motion by Smith O'Rrien for a select
committee to inquire- Into the nlleged
practice of vexntlous petitioning
ngnlnst Irish members elected in the
popular interest. Daniel O'Connell
t-upported the motion, nnd It had been
ai ranged that Sir Robeit Peel should
reply; but the stiongly expiesed wish
of Dlstiaell that tho duty might bo
Klen to him, backed as It was by
many membeis of his partj', Induced
the Toiy lenders to give way to this
ni dent young; reciult.
Theio had been nn nrdent, though
eiy blttei ciuarrel, betwen 0':Uonnell
and Disraeli's sponsors when he car
ilecl tho Haellcul flag on the hustings
nt High Wycombo In 1832. Three jenrs
later Disraeli, hnlng turned Torj', at
tacked tho Melbourne administration,
which was ictulned In power by the
Irish p.wty, for having elapsed ns ho
put It, "the bloody hand of O'Connell."
O'Connell retorted In a speech of snv-
ngo vituperation In which ho declaied
that Dlstiaeli's life was n "living lie,"
and that he was a "descendant of the
Impenitent thief on the Cioss," DIs-
raell challenged O'Connell. but the
Irishman, after killing D'Esterre In
1S15 had made a vow against duelling,
and alwaja wore a black kid glove on
his right hand as.a token of his life
long repentance for having shed an
other man's blood, "Then," wrote DIs
taell, In a scathing letter to O'Connell.
"We shnll meet at 1'hlllppl." Now tho
two nntagnnlsts were face to face nt
Phlllppl In the Houso of Commons,
with, hnpnlly, the floor between.
Disraeli's failure on this occasion wns
not duo to nervous timidity, but to the
less amiable fault of ever-confident
lluem-y, to the young member's irrltn
tlng self-nssutnncc of manner, Inspired,
oblvlously, by the conviction that ho
wns nbout to lenp Into pnrllnmentaiy
fame at a single bound. This, with his
foplsh attire, his nffected gestuies, nnd
the knowledge of his rapid change of
political opinion, caused the Biltlsh
Radicals nnd the Irish Rpppaleis, both
led by the lusty lungs of O'Connell, to
Indulge In tours of Ironical laughter
and other disconcerting cilcs.
