RECOLLECTIONS OF PIONEER
Historical Incidents That Have Been Crowded Into the Re
markable Life of A. C. Fulton.
When the republic of Hawaii was
struggling' for existence, and Presi
dent Cleveland had put his big foot on
the neck of the infant republic, I, in
violation of the neutrality laws, pur
chased and shipped by Adams Express
and on an ocean vessel arms and
uunmunition at njy own cost, and in
time I received the . following letter
from Sanford 15. Dole, president of
the ocean island republic.
"Department of Foreign Aairs,
Honolulu, Jan. 30, 1894. Dear Sir: It
is my pleasant duty to inform you
that the arms and ammunition you
mentioned in your letter of December
11, last, have arrived.
"I accept with pleasure your gift,
which aside from its intrinsic worth
I esteem and value as evidence that
Hawaii possesses a brave and loyal

present position and build up a stable
and enlightened government in these
islands, you may rest assured. Wo
have, I think, enough supporters here
to oppose attacks by any faction or
clique against constituted authority,
and therefore would not recommend
you to come out here, believing that
yon could aid us quite snfliciently at
home by disseminating correct ideas
in regard to our country.
"Thanking j'ou for your generous
gift and sympathy, I have the honor
"Your obedient servant,
"SANFORD D. DOLE,

Iowa. I". S. A."
The aid of one poor sailor in a na
tion's cause may appear as naught,
yet might lias slumbered in a single
arm. A weak hand, with pen and ink,
may cause thousands to feel the lash
of justice and make them cringe, and
cause tyrants to fear the sword of
vengeance when no sword is in sight.
I do but speak of facts and occur
rences that called my attention or
that I was interested in, or in which
I took nn active part.
I read this from the Democrat:
Our hot stuff can't be
to buy it.
Seventeenth Street j.
- 1 I-l-I-H-M.-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-!-
"'You believe the climate is chang
ing! What makes you think so? lie
cause this is u severe winter! All non
sense. I want to tell you that this
winter is ethereal mildness compared
with a winter we had in old times.
Old settler's brag! Not a bit of brag
about it. What 1 tell you is a fact.'
"The speaker was D. 1. McKown,
the secretary of the Scott County Pio
neers' association, who v lived in
Davenport nearly m'ty years.
" 'It was the winter of 1S42-43, and
I know all about it, for I was in a fix
that made it almost unendurable, and
I counted every one of its tedious
days, looking for a let up every hour
which never came until after six long
months had passed. Talk about cold
weather hanging on why, if this re
gion had been as thickly populated
then as it is now many people would
have perished. It was the coldest
winter ever known in this Mississippi
valley by white men. I will tell you
how it was with me, ami you will see
why my memory of it is so clear.
"And Mr. McKown entered upon a
graphic story of his experience in
that historic winter of LS-12-43.
" A. C Fulton was then, as he is
now, though '43 years older, one of
the most enterprising men in Daven
port. He had a large flat boat built in
October, 1842, by a carpenter named
Charlie Anderson, who named the
boat Eliza, in honor of a young lady
in the village to whom he was engag
ed. In November Mr. Fulton loaded
that boat with onions and potatoes
and intended the cargo for the New
Orleans market. The crew consisted
of Cnpt. John Anderson, Charlie An
derson (no relation to each other),
John McCloskey, a man named King,
and myself. The cargo and boat cost
Mr. Fulton $1,S00. We set sail from
Davenport on the 17th of November,
with beautiful weather prevailing,
Next day it became cool. The water
was low, and it was hard boating, I
tell you, for ice was forming fast.
The third day we tied up at Otter isl
and, five miles above JSurlington, to
wait for a thaw. It was frightfully
cold away below zero and the river
was soon solid ice. Well, sir, we stay
ed there all winter. We lived on
onions and pork took along pork as
part of our provisions. All the drink
we had besides water was a decoction
from sarsaparilla root which was dujf
from under the snow and it thinned
our blood so that it almost killed us.
The man who owned Otter island hir
ed us to chop cord wootl at 37"a cents;
per day and take it' in orders on a
store in Uurlington. Money was very
scarce. We could get no groceries
sugar, tea. coffee, flour, and the like
nothing but cornmeal, whisky,!
powder and dry goods. The only flout j
we had was 10 pounds which our em
ployer had bought us for Christmas
dinner. Oh, that was a dinner! The
Sunday before Christinas the boys
shot a wild turkey, a couple of pheas
ants and three or four hares. There I
was no finer dinner in the land. We
had plenty of good whisky. It was a
"15ut you have forgotten the tern-
pera t tire, Mr. McKown. How. colli
"'One of us used to go down to
Burlington every little while. There
was a thermometer outside a store
there, and it used to register 25 to 28
degrees below zero! Day after day,
week after week, the mercury was
that low. Everybody said it was the
coldest winter ever known here. I
know myself there has leen nothing
like it since. I forgot to tell you one
discovery we made. We found two
bee trees. One was four feet in di
ameter, but there wasn't a pound of
honey in it. The other was IS inches
in diameter, a sycamore, anil we took
70 H)unds of honey from that tree.
How about the break-up? Well,, sir,
there was no break-up until the mid
dle of April. We didn't get away
from the island' until the 23th of
April. Why, on the 17th of April the
ice bridge at Davenport was still solid
enough for teams. We got into St.
Louis on the 6th day of May, seven
months after leaving Davenport.
There we had more bad luck, 'e ran
afoul of a wood flat and sunk it. The
man sued us for damages; we beat
him in court, but we had our lawyer's
fees to pay. We sold flat boat nird
onions at auction.' The onoins were
apoiled because of a leak that had
sprung in the hull when we lay at
Otter island. The net proceeds after
paying the lawyer and .the auction
eer, were $S4. That sum we divided
among the crew, and we separated.
I went to Cincinnati. Mr. Fulton
came down to St. Louis to meet us,
laughed at our story, and said we
had done as well as we could, but he
never went near the boat or its cargo.
Only three of the crew stayed with it
all winter Charles Anderson, Mc
Closkey and myself."
"Learning that our citizen, A. C.
Pulton, had furnished to the Pioneer
Lawmakers a sketch of early days,
the Republican requested a copy,
"'Davenport, la., Jan. 7, 1898. To
Col. John Scott, president, and the
honorable members of the Pioneer
Lawmakers' association of Iowa.
"'Gentlemen: A journal now be

are requested to verbally or throtigh
writing lay before the sixth session
of the association our acts and recol
lections of Iowa pioneer days.
"During our session of ten years
Iowa's historical and legislative fields
have been well gleaned. Territorial
ahd infant state days have been re
hearsed by my honorable members
who have given an interesting history
of their entrance and the part they
took to build up a finished world in
a wjlderness, reducing the labor of
those in the rear. When each mem

page, a fair history of Iowa and be

must add my page of history.
