Sir. William SlcOarrahan is n familiar
figure In Washington, where ho lias spent
most of his time for tho past tpiarter of a
century in the prosecution of his claim
for the title to the Panocho Oramlo laud
grant in California, upon which nro loca
ted the celebrated New Idrla quicksilver
mines. The general history of this noted
cn-p and of SIcGarrahan's continuous
struggle for what ho considers his Just
right, is piclty well known to the publlo
nt laigo, as numerous reports ol Congres-
sionnl committees, decisions by courts
and departments have boon published
from time to time, and the "SlcGarralian
claim" Is notorious throughout the laud.
On several occasions ho has been nearly
successful in securing confirmation of Ids
clniiii, when somo new point would bo
sprung by his rich nnd vigilant adversa
ries, and "Mnc" would be knocked out
lorn time, but ho always camo up smiling
and lenewod tho contest with unabated
vigor; nnd to-day, after nil his set-hacks,
he is hopeful in Ills feelings and buoyant

Wm. SIcGnrrnhnu, the "claimant" in
one of tlio most distinguished of celebra
ted cases in history, was born in Funis
killcn, County Fcuuanngh, lu the noith
of Ireland, in October, 1828.
His family nud thatof his mother the
SlcMnnus had been extensive hiudhold
eis, but were only in moderate circum
stances when the subject of this sketch
lie attended school In his native town
until i) years old, when ho wont to Sligo
to live with his maternal uncle anil re
mained until the lnttcr's death In 1813,
during which time ho attended private
On tho death of his undo ho began a
small business as n grocer nnd wluo
dealer, which ho conducted successfully
for sovcral years. He hccaino early en
listed In the ranks of tho party who tie
slietl to see Ireland free from British rule
and governed by Irishmen, and whononly
a little abovo 10 years of ngo was made one
of thcdclegation of six that represented tho
citizens of Sligo in the national ceremonies
nt Dublin, May 30, 1815, to celebrate the lib
eration of O'Connell and his soven mar
tyr friends. The other members of tho
delegation included the mayor, aldermen,
town clerk and town sollcitorof Sligo.
This great celebration was composed of
representative Irishmen from every part of
the three kingdoms of Ulster, Minister and
Lciiistcr, nnd included such men as Henry
Grattan (tlio son of tho great orator), who
presided; Smith O'Brien, Thomas Francis
Slcngher, Thomas Devln Reilly and
Thomas d'Arcy SIcGee. Tlio delegates
adopted a resolution pledging themselves
to assert to the death Ireland's right to
self-government, and overy one signed it,
voung SIcGarrnhan with the ret, ami ho
is still an earnest ad vocato of tho political
creed ho then subscribed to.
When, In 1S1S tlio French revolution re
sulted in the overthrow of monarchy in
Franco nnd tlio downfall of Louts Phil
lippe, gieat consternation ensued among
tlio eiowned heads and rulers of Europe,
butnt tho same time a Hood of joy lilted
the hcaits of the men who wero struggling
lor liiiicpenuenco nnti seii-govcrnincnt.
All Ireland was enthusiastic at tho result,
and addresses of congratulation went from
overy considerable town throughout thu
threo kingdoms. At Sligo n monster meet
ing was held, at which an address was
ndoptctl congratulating Franco in tho
establishment of a Kcpublic, and a com
mitteo of thrco wns elected to picscnt this
to tho French Republican Government,
Tho committee Included young SlcGar
rahan, then under 'JO years of ago; ex
Mayor Vcrdon and Alderman O' Donovan.
During tlio repeal agitation of 1S13-1
young SIcGnrraban, despito his years,
took a prominent part ami was intimately
acquainted with most of tlio leaders, In
cluding O'Connell himself; hut when tho
division camo between O'Connell and his
Whig followers anil the " Voung Ireland"
party the future initio claimant seceded
with "Young Ireland," under Thomas
d'Aicv SIcGee, who proposed him as a
member of the "Irish Confederation." tho
parliament of (he paity. lie continued
actively engaged with this party until it
wns disbanded in tlio dark days of ISIS,
when nearly nil of its chief lcadershnd been
seized and sentenced to banishment by
tho British Government.
In tho early summer of 1818 tho writ of
habeas corpus was suspended, and tho
British oltlcials oxerciscd tho power
to enter ami search any house und arrost
and imprison without question, or tho
uopo oi ictiiess, invasn icigu ui leinii,
but tlio Irish patriots held to their l'a it h
audbitll'crcd all rather than submit.
The very day tho news of the suspen
sion leached Sligo, McGurrahan's resi
dence was searched for arms and papers,
but luckily without success. One of tho
first acts oftlio British was to put a pneo
ofjC500on D'Arcy SIcGeo, and a penalty
of font teen years Imprisonment forany
ouo to assist or harbor him. Justnl'tor
waul SIcGeo returned from a mission to
Glasgow, where ho had been sent by
O'Biien, Meagher and Dillon, and tho
boy SIcGarrahan, although living only a
few tloors away from tho police head
hunt tors, received anil sheltered SIcGeo
until that patriot, finding O' llrien and all
tho oilier leaders under orrost, escaped
with the help of SIcGarrahan nnd other
devoted friends and escaping out oftlio
country by Slalin Head, on tho iron
bound North Const, came to Amorioa,
McGiirrahau sold out his then oxtcuslvo
and piosperous business nnd his property,
nml followed his chief, arriving In thu
United States In Starch, 1811).
Alter visiting in tho F.ast and N'ow
Orleans for a few months ho turned to
waul tho now Kl Dorado, und set out by
wnv of Panama, arriving nt San Francisco
in October, 1S10, when ho wasjusttwenty
one. There ho nt onco invested his capital In
his foimer business anil steadily prospered,
so that by 1853 ho was one of the loading
business men on thoPacilloCoast, and Had
accumulated a good storo of Mils world's
goods. In that year ho went to Ireland,

cooped from Australia. In Dublin his

and John Neil SIcKeima both .since
knighted who were (he members of the
British Parliament from Wexford and
Youghal, anil at a dinner given in Ills
honor by Sir. Dull'y, Mr. SIcGarrnhan was
assured that If he would again tnkc up his
residence In Ireland he would also bo sent
to Pniliaiiient. During this visit he re
newed his old acquaintance with Slaurlco
Lcgne, tlio nephew of O'Connell, nnd John
Cnshcl Hoey. After nn extended visit on
the conllntiitho returned to California in
185 1 anil resumed his business, and also
purchased n rnnche In San Jose Valley
which ho sk eked with the llrst Improved

About this llmo his various luvestuientf)

struck out with his right flipper on Piatt's
face, spreading his noo all over his coun

other optic anil foiled his bitter enemy to
tlio lloor. Tho assault, though brief, was
terrific, nnd In consequence Colonel Piatt
was confined to his loom for a couple of
weeks with tho worst disfigured face ever
seen outside of a fiercely contested prize
No arrests were made, but the news
