Guthiuk, O. T., April 24. Dealers in real
estate began business before 2. o'clock in the
afternoon. Ono enterprising dealer had as
a background for tbe safe transaction of
business a stock of rifles which had boon
placed thero by the government troops on
duty at tho land office. Near by was the
tent ot United States Marshal Needles. The
tent was surmounted by a largo American
Many Disappointed.
When tho second and third section'? of tho
train had arrived noarly everything in sight
had been taken, and the only recourse left to
those disappointed in securing lots was to
buy out such holders of lots as were willing
to sell, or run the risk of hiking outside the
legal limit. Both courses were adoptod, and
a good number of Outhrie city lots changed

Tho first sale was made by man named R,
C. Rummels, of Malvan, Kan., who sold a
fine twenty-flvc-foot lot near the land offlco
for $5 to an old doctor, a resident of one of
the Indian reservations adjoining Okla
homa. The purchuser refused 50 for the
lot flvo minutes later. Several transfers
were made, nnd others who were determined
to locate here drove stakes outside tho town
line. This is preparatory to the purchase of
homesteaders' rights and extension of the
city limits.

In the afternoon at 4 o'clock the first mu

I A moss of mail is expected to reach the
Guthrie postofflco every day. It is now
being run by a postal clerk detailed for thnt

I Thlrtj-l'Ho Thousand Located.
I In fcpite of everything the authorities
could do there wero hundreds of people in
the territory before noon.
The land olllce opened at 12 o'clock and
remained open until 4, merely for tho pur
pose of complying with tho law. But nobody
went there. There are now in Oklahoma
about 83,000 people.
I'nrcell Almost Deserted.
Purckll, I. T., AprJI 24. A great change
has come ovor this town. Monday morning
it was a metropolis, now it is a hamlet in
point of population. The metamorphosis
was effected at 12 o'clock, when soverul
thousand men, women and children crossed
tho Canadian, river and entorod upon a
wild struggle for homos in the promised
Liout. Adair, with a small body of troop
ers, came to the scone at 8 o'clock, and
patrolled the river bank until noon. An
othor guard was stationed at tho Santa Fo
bridge. Still anothor dotaohmout crossed to
the Oklahoma side and began beating tho
bush for hidden boomers. Below the bridge
is a great bend where tho quicksands are
known to be tho most treacherous.
free Fight In a Cur.
As tho trains lay on tho siding each enr
was a theatre. It seemed as if every man
hod a plan whoroby he could leave the train
after it had passed into Oklahoma. Stealthy
glances at the boll ropo showed that tho en
gineer's gong would sound about the timo
tho train was over the bridge 1 olow town.
A discussion in one car brought on n freo
fight among somo gamblers, and pistols wero
flourished in tho most reckless manner.
Thero happened to bo adeputy United States
marshal on tho car, who cut tho lobe from n
man's eur ut thirty paces, and when ho thr.ow
up his gun the others dlsappeaied as if by
Tho Start.
At 11:40 tho conductor of the long spociul
train on on the siding gave tho signal, tho
engines whistled shrilly, and the special lo-
gnu its trip Ok nhomaward. It seemed n if
every man on tho train shouted when the
train moved, and a moment later tho sound
of pistol shots told that the Texans wero
firing their salute. Gathering tpecd, thoi
trains soon came opposite tho ford, and then
n furious fusiludo broko out. It was con-
tinned until tho train dashed around tho
bond, pieparntory to crossing tho bridge.
Tho Jtusli ISckIus.
Suddenly the cheerful strains of the rocnll
nro bounded. In nn instant tho scone
changes, Thero is n mighty shout, nnd tho
advance guard of tho invading army is
racing Uko mad across tho sands toward tho

different directions, but most of too wagons

On the East and Snath.
Fokt Smith, Tex, April 24 The small
bands of sentries and guards on the eastern
and southern borders wero-uttorly nimble to
check the mighty tldo of men that poured
into tho promised land. Tho fit st fight took
place in tbe early morning at tho ford on
i Kickapoo creek. Upon being hailod tho
I boomers made no reply, and those already
across tho creek made every effort to get
back on tho opposite bank. In the rush
threo horses were drowned and a boomer
'named Mnrkbam,, an ox-tragedian, who
was stranded at Memphis, had his leg
llattlo With IJoomorK.
Georgo Hnrkness, leader of tho boomers,
called on his party to retreat in good order,
but tho boomers manifested an inclination to
contest tho right of way and soon two shots
rang out from the loft flank of tho wagon
i train. The guards promptly returned the
' fire and great confusion resulted. It was
1 pitch dark. Horses became wild with fright;
I women shrieked. Men rushod frantically
about trying to preserve order. No ono was

wounded in tho thigh.
Another Fight.
Anothor fight took place fifteen miles east
of Niebeck, in which a man and woman
were killed. They belonged to a party of
Mlssisslpplans, whites and negroes. They
belonged to a party who hod been making
moonlight trips into Oklahoma, and about
five miles across the line had staked off
claims amounting to 1,400 acres
Nine Prisoners Taken.
A squad of Cheyenne scouts came upon
the trail just as day dawned, and followed it
to whore tho men were. The scouts followed
tho retreating intruders right into tho camp
and n hot fight ensued while they wero en
deavoring to tako prisoners. A young man
named Molson was killed, as was also a
woman, while sho wns running toward tho
brush. Tho scouts retired with ni.io pris
oners without losing a man.
Three Men Murdered.

Kingfisher, O. T., April 24. This

A strango scono took place in Kingfisher nt
11:53. Nino United States deputy marshals
i?sigued their office while in Oklahoma and
stepped ovor to Kingfisher and selected the
choicest lots before tho crowd arrived. 1 hen
the people camo they all secured lots for
themselves, and one old man homesteaded
tho whole city nnd began to dig up the gi ass
to plant his corn. As nobody yet has a titlo

whether tho old man will seize the city for a

Continuing, ho said: "Tho Nipsic is again

New York, April 24. Sir Julian Paunco
fote, the now English minister who arrived
on the Etruria Sunday, was sufficiently re
covered from tho fatiguo of his voyage
after a night's rest at the Brevoort house tq
soo newspaper men Monday. Sir Julian is
a typical Englishman.
He is over six feet tall, well built, with tho
appearance of an athlete, arH Is in striking
t j,nst to nis

Snckville, who
wns under-sized.
His face is clean

tone of a man accustomed to public speak

The suavity of his bearing and genornl
appearance nro not unlike Mr. Chnuncey M.
Depew. "I know I shall like America," Sir
Julian replied to the usual question. "True,
Ihave had scarcely a chance to soa anything,
but I have mot so many Americans" in En
gland and heard so much of your country
thnt I do not feel like n stranger."
Regarding tho questions in dispute
between this country and Great Britain,
Sir Julian spoke with diplomatic reserve,
probably having in mind Lord Sackvillo's
"I shall not venture to givo nny opinions
on political subjects," he said. "My position

whother another commission will be sent

Tho fisheries dispute is probably tho most
serious, but I am hero with tho most
pacific intentions, and bear with mo the
cordial good will of hor majesty's

am confident that I shall find it reciprocated

"Did you meet Mr. Blaine' when ho was
in England," tho reporter asked.
"Yes," he replied. "I was present at a
dinner givep to Mr. Blaino in London, but I
did not hnvo an opportunity of conversing
with him, as his attention was engaged by
people of more importance than myself."
"How was Mr. Lincoln's appointment re
ceived in England J"
"I left so soon aftor his appoiutment that
I had no chance to observe Tbe first ex
pression was rather one of inquiry. I have
no doubt that he will receive a cordial re

Sir Julian dined with Minister Whitelaw

England in August for his family, consist

whom are in society, while tne other prob

Sir Julian expressed regrot at not being
able to remain for the centennial celebration.
Will Probably lie Thirteen Miles Long.
The Naval Display Will Do Grand.
New York, April 24. Gen. Butterfleld,
grand marshal of tho civio and industrial
parade of tho Washington centennial, sent a
lotter to Mayor Grant in which he an
nounces that tho parade will probably bo
thirteen miles long. It is absolutely neces
sary, he says, that tho streets bo cleared of
all obstructions. Mayor Grant is asked to
co-operate with the police to effect this re
sult. Tho applications for plaoos in line
havo swelled to such proportions that it has
become necessary to ask tho different appli
cants to reduco their numbers in tho parado,
if possible, otherwiso it is feared the proces
sion will not end In day timo.
Tho naval committee has tolegraphod Ad
miral Porter, asking him to send to this city
his chief of staff to nrrango the dotails of tho
naval parado. This committo havo secured
threo steamers for tho accommodation of in
vitod guosts.
Tho plan nnd scope committee has decided
that Hamilton Fish, the president of tho
centennial celebration, shall rocoivo Presi

Philadelphia, April 84, Tho Missouri
camo to her dock after 5 Monday evening
nnd was greeted with cheers from tho crowd
awaiting hor. It was a joyous reunion. 4
Capt Murrell, of tho rescuing vossel, gives a
graphic account of meeting the distressed
ship, of tho signalling which passed between
him and Capt. Knudsen, of tho dnngors of
getting tho Danmark's passengers off, of tho
heroism of tho Swedes and the final cut
loose from tho sinking ship.
"On looking ovor our provisions," ho says,
"wo found, after n careful esthnato of the
number of mouths wo had to feed, wo hod
only enough food on board to last threo
days, and I decided to make all possible '
baste to rench St. Michaels, which was 720.,
miles away. Our jettisoned cargo consisted
of rags."
On April 7 Mrs. Linnio, agod 18 years, a
Danish woman, who was on the way to
America to meet her husband, gave birth to
n girl. Tho Httlo stranger was christened
Atlantic Missouri. Tho child was born
during n howling storm.
Just before arriving at tho pier a florist's
agent boarded the ship, and searching out
Capt Mun ell presented him, on behalf o
several prominont ship owners nnd .citizons,
with a handsome floral ship, tho hull and
rigging being composed of pink roses on a
sea of evergreens and trimmed with silvered
sails. It was a complete surprise to tho cap
tain, but ho recovored himself and nccepted
it in a fow words, where in his modesty
again played a prominent port.
"I thank you," said ho to those who had
gathered around him, "for the officers and
crew of my vessel for this offering, because I
appreciate that this is not alone intended for
me, but for the bravo men who surround
me. It has been said that thero are po
more British sailors, but I have been con
vinced on this trfp that the British sailor
still lives."
Capt Murrell will be lionized for tho noxt,
day or two as a mark of tho esteem in which
he is held by those who know him and of his
gallantry. He was made an honored guest
nt tho annual dinner of the Sons of St
Tho final leave-taking between Capt Mur
roll and tho passengers of tho Daumnrk was
affecting. For all of those who grasped his
hand the master had a smilo, a kind word ot
well wishing.

as follows i
"House of Commons, )
London, April 12.
"Dear Sir I have the honor to acknowl
edge your letter of tho 22d of March and tho
remarkable list appended to it of thoso dis
tinguished citizens of tho United States who
havo testified through tho memorial you
mention their interest in the condition of
Ireland, nnd their desire for a just and rea
sonable acknowledgment of her National
claims and aspirations. ,
"I rejoice not only to think but to know
that throughout tho wido confines of tho
race to which w e all belong thero is an over
whelming preponderance of sentimont in
favor of that acknowledgment At home
this judgement has boon constitutionally, re
corded by Ireland herself, by Scotland and
Wales, tho representatives of all the threo
being in favor of Home Rule by a majority
of threo or four to one.
"And, founding ourselves on the ovidenca
of tho eloctions in England which havo taken
place since tho goueral election of 1880, we
firmly believe that England horsolf wore the
opportunity now offprdod her by a dissolu
tion, would record a verdict decisively in ac
cord with thoso of tho other portions of tho
United Kingdom and of tho Anglo-Saxon
race at largo. Encouraged by these indica
tions at home nnd abroad, and by tho wise
ndvico of their representatives in parliament,
the Irish people show an indisposition to
crime and outrago not less remarkable than
their determination to carry forward their
cause to its successful consummation now
retarded by tho votes of men who do not
represent tho real sentiment of tho country.
"It is a further satisfaction to me to in
clude in this acknowledgement local, but
authoritative, manifestations from America,
only less remarkable than what has pro
ceeded from the centers and hns had the
illustrious sanction of the president himself.
This very day I have received a communica
tion in tho same spirit with your own from
the legislature of Nebraska, ono further in
dication of tho sentimont and desire which
prevails throughout the vast domain of tho
United States, Finally, I rejoice to bo put
in possession of such declarations at a mo
