A Bri? k History ok the War between Wil-I
liam the Senator and Joseph the Keprekent ;
ative.?Now it came to pass in those davs when
Franklin was the President and John tne Governor
of the province, there arose n great strife
between William the Senator and Joseph the Representative.
And William was a wily man,
, and deeply skilled in all the mysteries of kingcraft
and usury. Howbeil. Joseph was a slow
man, and while'lie slept William had arisen and
gone forth to the President, and by much fair
speech had jierMiaded liiui to give unto liini, and
his followers, many of the tilt tilings, tlie wines:
the fat things full of marrow; the wines on lees

joy, both lie and Ins people, and tliey returned to
their own land with exceeding joy. Then arose
Joseph from his slumber, and he goeth to the President
and saul, 1 pray you give unto nie of the
fat tilings thou hast in store for mc and my people.
But Franklin, the President, said no: thou art
come too late, for William the Senator hath been
here, and he and his follower* have taken with
them all of the treasures and rielies 1 had for the
people in thy country, even California. So Joseph
j departed in a rage, and when he got to his own
country he went forth with his jieople to see the
fleet cliargers course it over the plain. And behold
William and his people were there also. And
as the multitude gathered around, Joseph lifted up'
his voice and saia: Behold, I say unto you, this
William is a deceiver and a coward. He luith
robbed my people of tlieir heritage, and his name
is not written in the book of the faithful. Now
William, though the spirit moved him greatly,
he spoke not. But straightway lie returned to his
own house and he gathered together his family
and fricuds, his wife and his children, and he took
a parchment, and thereon lie wrote in strange
William the Senator, to Joseph the Representative,
"Thy voice was heard by me and my people on
the plain, and thou hast borne talsc witness against
me, and now 1 ask thee: 'Art thou a wine-bibber,
and sayest thou things wTiich thou knowest not the
meaning, or art thou a man that maketh <?ood thy
words:' "
And Joseph sent straightway to William and
|f. _ said "That which wasspokcn on the pluin is affirmed
in the council; thou art as it hath, by inc, been
Then William was full of wrath, and he again
sent unto Joseph and said: "Take ye two friends,
yea three if thou likest, and go forth beyond the
city, and 1 will take friends, the like number, and
in the desert afar off we will battle for that honor
which we so much lack. With sword or with
pistol, with pop guns or with iron guns, we will
tight to the glory of the nation and the vindication
| of ourselves."
I And Joseph said "Amen."
And on the morrow, while it was yet early,
L they arose, and William said to his servants:
W "Saddle me an ass, and my friends saddle each
I an ass, and take you another ass, and put a pannier
upon him; and in the pannier put bread and
wine and much strong drink; moreover, put in
doughnut and sausages, sandwiches and cold slaw,
for we go a long journey, and peradventure we
return no more.' And when the family and friends
< of William heard these words there was great
lamentation, and those that weut not with him
fell on his neck and kissed him, sorrowing most of
all for the words which he spake, that they should
see his face no more.
And in the house of Joseph the lamentation was
yet louder; and as they went forth, each with his
own friends, his own asses, his own doughnuts
and sausages, their wailing could be heard afar
And they went three days' journey into the
desert, and the third day tfiey came to a place
called San Mateo, and they dismounted and took
from their panniers the doughnuts and the sausages
and the strong drink, for the hearts of all were
exceeding depressed, and sorrow sat upon their
faces; and when they hail eaten of the bread, and
drank of the wine, and liecame much drunken, the
spirit came again to tliem, and thev said let the
battle be fought.
So the friends of William conferred with the
f.iends of Joseph, and they measured off a wide
distance, even thirty paces, and William and Joseph
stood at that distance, full of wrath, and
sausage, and cold slaw; and behold when they
took tiieir big guns to deal death to each other,
there were no bullets cast; so they sat down, Joseph
with his face to the east, and William witli
his face to the west, and a servant was despatched
to the tents of the Philistines, which were situated
at a distance of a Sabbath day's journey, nnd he
there found bullets, which he put in tne pocket
of his nether garment. So he returned to the
place whence he caine. And the weapons of
William and Joseph were loaded, doubly loaded,
with powder and ball. Then they stood forth,
William with his face to the east and Joseph with
his face to the west; and as the word cuuic from
the centurion they turned in exceeding haste, and
behold so great was their courage, ana so perfect
their self-possession, that. William hit a raven"
that was flying over, and the ball of Joseph passed
near'the head of Samuel, the friend of William.
This was the first pass. I
And again they stood up, and again they made ,
readv. and strain did thov k.w U - ?:f.?i
J , J -"V,, uui It. UIUIICU not.
The bullets would not kill; and after the third (
time William cried aloud, why persccutest. thou i
me? And Joseph said, because, when we were in i
a strange land, even in Washington, thou didst i
injustice to inc. 1
But William said not so. Then straightway I
the friends of William and the friends of Joseph
took counsel together, and they prepared an epistle
to be published among the faithful at San
Francisco. This epistle is preserved among the
treasures with the last ls?ok of Madras. And it
readeth that Joseph had spoken nothing, but
what he did speak was the truth?that William
? had spoken nothing, and that he too had spoken
truth; and that both were honorable men and valiant.
So they forgot their hate and came again to
San Francisco, and the second night they pitched
their tents in sight of that great city. And the
people within, when they heard that without were
their faithful servants, rejoiced exceedingly. And
there went forth to meet tlicin the rulersund multitude.
And lo, when they saw William afar off,
and beheld his gray hairs streaming in the wind,
they set up a loud shout, ami they went, and took
him from his own beast, and placed him in a chariot,
and with exceeding iov they bore him to his
own house.
And the sequel to the history of this bloody war
may lie read in the 147th chapter of the book of
f (uhakkuk
Coincidences.?A Condon paper brings to
inind the following curious coincidences: On the
< 18th of Juno, 1815, the English and French were
engnged in desperate conflict at Waterloo; on the
(i same day of the same month, in 1853, the English
and French fleets were at anchor off the Dardanelles,
engaged in a common cause. On the
t 14th of June, 1807, Napoleon conquered the
troops of Alexander of Russia at Friedland, and
the two monarchs, at the subsequent interview at
Tilsit, took counsel as to whether, together, they
could not humble the mfvnl power of England.
Forty-six years later, day for day, the navies of
England and France are united to resist the encroachments
of the Muscovite. The brother of
Alexander and the nephew of Napoleon do not
act in concert, but in hostility. That a half century,
however, should produce such changes is not
surprising; but the coincidence of dates is striking.
