THEANACONDA STANDARD: SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER is *8^9
Therecent rrU'taratton of the antiiYer-^^mt of the birth of Davy t rocket! baa at^^tracted public attention to one of the moat^remarkable men who ever lived In tbia^State. Comparatively few of tbe preaent^generation are familiar with tbe charac^^teristics of tbe famous Indian fighter,^pioneer, hunter and member of eongreaa.
Inlooking through an old scrap book^today I found aeveral oopiea of the Arirl,^a literary gasette publiabed In Phila^W^l-^phla. The number of January 23, l*fc^,^contains tbe following story of Davy^('rocket, which may not prove uninterest
ingat this time:^Dav
vyCrockett, a Tennessee member of^congress. Tbe facetious Mr. K. of Ohio^tells a good story iu which this congress^^man from tbe wild woods of Tennessee^figures aa tbe hero. Tbe reader will sup^^pose Davy returned from the first session^he had tlte honor of representing tbe peo^^ple in congrcHs. He is to suppose, fur^^ther, that Davy lias fallen in with a num^^ber of his constituents at a raising, and is^telling them of his visit to the president.
Tbefirst thing I did,^ said Davy,^^after I got to Washington was to go to^tbe president's liouse. Thinks I, who's^ufraid ^ If I didn't I wish I muy he allot.^Says I, 'Mr. Adams, I am Mr. Crockett^from Tennessee.* *5So,' says lie; 'how do
Jroudo, Mr. Crockett T and lie shook me^^y the hand, although lie knowcd I went^the whole liog for Jackson. If I didn't I^wish I may he shot. Not only that, but lie^sent me a printed ticket to dine witli him.^I've got it in my pocket yet. If 1 haven't^I wish 1 may Is' shot.^ (Hen- the printed^ticket was cahibitotl for the adiniiatioii of^the whole company). ^I w^ tit to dinner,^^said Davy, ^anil walked around the loiii^^tuble looking for something that I liked.^At last 1 took my seat just Ix'side u f ut
rtose,and I helped myself to us much as^wanted. But 1 hadn't look three bites^when 1 looked away up the table ut a niun^culled 'l ash luttaclici. He was talking^French to a woman on tot her side of da^^table. He dodged his head and she^dodged hers, and they got to drinking^wine across the table. If they didn't^I wish I may In- shot. But when I^looked hack again my place was^gone, goose and all. So I jist^east my eyes down t'otlier end of the table^ami sure enough 1 seen u white man walk^^ing off with my plute. Says 1. 'Hello,^mister, bring hack my plate.' He fetched^it hack ill u hurry, as you may suppose,^and when he set it down la-fore me how-^do you think it was ^ Licked as clean as^my hand. If it wasn't 1 wish I may hc^shol. Says In-. 'What will you luivc sir'.^^Anil says I, 'you may well say that after^stealing my goocc ;' and he begun to lutigli.^If he didn't 1 wish I may lie shot. Then^says I, 'mister, laugh if you please, hut I^don't half like such tricks u|k^ii travelers.^If I do I wish I may Is- shot.' 1 then tilled^my plute with Imicoii ami greens, and^whenever I looked up or down the table I^held my plate with my left hand. If 1^didn't, I wish 1 may Is- shot. When wc^were ull done eating they cleared every^^thing off flu- table ami took away the table^cloth, and what do you think there wus^another tuble cloth under it. If there^wasn't I wish I muy Is- shot. Then I saw^a man coining along currying a great^glass thing with a glass handle below, full^of little glass cups with something ill them^that looked good to cut. Says I, 'mister,^tiring that here.' Thinks I, let's taste 'em^first. Tl^-y vsssj mighty sweet and good,^and sol took six of 'em. If I didn't 1 wish^I may be d-d.
TfcfBAriel of February 7. 1M2^, contains^the following: ^The Hon. David Crockett,^member of congress from Tennessee, who^has Im-cii made the hero of a most laugh^^able story by a wuggish Kentucky editor,^has taken that mutter so seriously to^heurt as to publish certificates of his con^^duct on the occasion alluded to. Mr.^Chirk of Kentucky ami Mr. Vcrplatik of^New York have both certified that his^conduct ut the president's house wus^'marked with tin- strictest propriety.'
Weare told thut Mr. Crockett is a sen^^sible man, but suppose it is true that he^has something of tin- ^half horse, half^alligator^ in his manners. The Middle^^sex IJaxetfr noticing him in the following^maimer, gives something tictwixt a ciiri-^caturc uihI u true picture of Mr. Crockett^anil u large |s^rtioii of his constituents :
Insome of the western states grout^muscular force is all indispensable^rcouisite in u successful candidate for^public favor. This Mr. Crockett or, us^ho is familiarly termed. Davy- possosm-d^ill uu extraordinary degree; and, while^his eolll|m-titor Was telling the people of^his grout merits, Da. y wus giving prac^^tical evidence of his by grubbing up a^stump which two ordinary men would^have abandoned in despair. This strik^^ing demonstration of statesmanlike^qualities was irresistible to the yeomanry^of Tennessee, and the election of our^worthy Davy was by acclamation.
Whileon his way to Washington, he^assured his companion that he could wade^the Mississippi with a steamlsMit on his^back, whip his weight ii wilfleats, and^'rifle a streuk of lightning tiure-liaeked.*^Davy is the man who proposed to whip all^the animals in a menagerie, consisting of^a lion, a parcel of monkeys, and a zebra,^tin a certain occasion he said he intended^to -peak in the House of Representatives,^for he saw no reason of being dillldeiit, as^he could flog any man in it.
Thefact that Davy produced evidence^ill refutation of the charges made against^him by the ^good Mr. K. of ^ thio,^ d^s-s^not detract from the interest of the story.^In tin- Kiiccii-dhig iiuiiils-rs of the Arirl^no mention is made of Mr. Croc keel hav^^ing denied tlu- above statements of the^Middlesex (lazrllr; so the present genera^^tion must either accept them us truths or^account for non-denials of them by pre-^| siimiug that Mr. Crockett wus not long iu^discovering that public servants are open^to public criticism anil that many stories^are told ut their expense.
Inthis col ^ in-el ion it muy not Is- ina|^-^propriatc to relate an anecdote of Davy^which I remember to have read, ami^which bus Ih-oii receiitly erodib-d to Tom^Corwiti, of ^ Hiio.
Crockettwas sitting in a hotel at Wash-^' ington in company with u iiiiiiiIm t of^other congressmen. A inemls-r from^Massachusetts, whose name I do not re-^member, was standing in the floor. Turn^^ing to Davy, he called out : ^Cr^h-kett.^here come some of your constituents.^^Davy arose, walked to the floor, and^calmly surveyed a drove of mules ls-iug^driven flown the street.
Whereare they going'.'^ aalpafj the^member from the Buy Suite.
Theyi^r^' going '*^ Massachusetts to^teach school, repli'fl Davy, without^changing the expression of his fuct*.^Crockett quietly tfsik his scut beside the^stove again. He had turned the joke.^Let us hope that the Massachusetts mem^^ber was lilieral enough to treat.

THErriost important election^in which the people were ever^called upon to participate is^but thirty days off.
Neversince the organization of^the territory has the Democracy^been so united or seemingly so in^^vincible. Our cause is just, our^candidates invulnerable, and our^victory ought to be certain. There^is but one danger to be feared, and^that is a failure to register. Let^every man that deserves well of^the coming state see to it that He^is not disfranchised by that vicious^and partisan law, which ought to^have been entitled ^An act to dis^^franchise the farmers, miners and^stockmen of Montana.^ and w hich^was born of the first republican^legislature of Montana.
Register,and do so at once, and^thus rebuke the party that enacted^such a law. Delay is dangerous.^In order to vote you must register^on before September 15.
l.ctthe naturalized citizens of^this territory who have been voting^unmolested for years, hunt up^their papers that they have not^seen for ten years, ami go to the^place of registration anil register,^ami at the same time register a !^vow to rebuke the political party I^that puts you to this great in- j^convenience and practically dis- ,^franchises you by the absurd pro- j^vision which requires you to pro^^duce your papers, and in some^instances to travel a hundred^miles to register before you can^exercise the rights of freemen.
Weask all who are interested^in good government to read the^platform of our party. Examine^the public and business records^of our candidates, pursue anil in^^vestigate them in all their rela^^tions to the public, to the last and^final analysis, and we are confi^^dent that you will find them^worthy Montanians, men who will^guard and protect her interests at^all hazards.
Registerand tell your friends to^register.
