He always had rome Hide splitting Joke
on himself to relate that cunningly bora
on the argument he wished to advance,
and he generally got what he wanted In
fuel his representation of his constituents
was satisfactory, tho "lied lle.ided Hanger
from Texas," as he dubbed htmsolf, ob
taining for his Mntu almost all the appro
priations ho asked for, Ochiltree was
neither Punchinello nor Thersltes, but a
delightful mixture of tioth.
Early In life his shruwd humor developed
Itsolf and helped him forward, Iu a career
dashing ami adventurous In the extreme.
He was born at Nacogdoches parish, Tex.,
in 1811), n stirring period that marked the
close of Texas career as an Independent
republic!. Ills father, .lodge William II
Ochiltree, 11 distinguished lawyer ami n
personal friend of Houston, and those men
who carried the destiny of Texas In their
hands, was desirous of bringing the boy up
In a fashion to suit the rjiilctcr epoch he
Imagined he foresaw. To this end lie
placed him Iu charge of two Catholic
priests, who have both slnco then won high
honors In tho church.
Hut young Tom, whllo displaying n
bright Intellect, also showed the liveliest
signs of life. He abruptly broke olf his
studies Iu his fifteenth year, and volun
teered as a private In the Texas rangers,
coniinanileil by dipt, John G. Walker,
against the Apache and Comanche Indians
lu ISM and 'M. At the close of the cam.
p.ilun he returned to his books; but his was
supremely a youth of action, ami before he
had attained his majority he made him
self editor of The .leliersonliin, and in 1800
attended as 11 delegate the convention:! of
Charleston uml Imltlmorc. Then ensued
the civil war, during which (K-lilltreo
scnctl with distinction on the stall's of
Gen. Tom Green and (Jen. Dick Taylor, of
the Confederate army lie also ivcelved
honorable mention while acting under
special ordoM from Umgstreet, and was
rewarded by 11 colonelcy. After the cessa.
tic 11 of hostilities Col. Ochiltree accepted
the situation in good faith, ami both by
word ami pen exhorted his compatriots to
'stop crying uml llml solace in work."
During President Grant's llrst adminis
tration he appointed the Texan to bo
United States marshal of his state. Hut
I8U011111I '117 saw him again in his editorial
phase. He conducted Tho Houston Dally
Telegraph, ami was untiling lu his cITorts
to keep the resources of Texan before the
world. The attention of the state govern
ment was called to him, with the rebuilt
that he was sent to Europe to act us com
missioner of emigration for Texas, uml In
that capacity hi) paid several visits to the
continent as well us to England. Every
where he became it man marked; his ag
gressive but agreeable manner, his odd
but pleasing pcMim, everything called at
tention to Thomas Ochiltree and he know
well how to keep It there, for lie potilil tell
funny storle.s In Freiuh, Spanish ami En
gllsh Ah a matter of fact Col. Ochiltree
Kim letter known in Europe at this tlmo
than iu the'JnltedStiitoH, outshleof Texas.
It was his lumoiis campaign In 1S32, In
which he ran on the Independent ticket,
uml defeated the so called most popular
Democrat lu Texas, .Mr. Findhiy. that
brought him Into prominence. At that era
the congrexslonal district which he was
contesting embraced :i,r00 siiiare miles
of territory, contained twenty-seven conn
tics, and reached from Galveston on the
Gulf to Eagle Pass on the Rio Griindo
The great light took place at Galveston,
whero Ochiltree mid his adherents occupied
the armory us headquarters, and his oppo
nents the loruo Trcmtint house. Ochiltree
kept everybody iwny from the speeohes nt
the latter place listening for hours at the
armory to slorie.s that he told on himself
stories that have gone the rounds of every
Among othoM he told how, when ho be
gan to practice law with his father, he
took ml vantage of the old gentleman's ah
sonce In San Antonio to have an immense
sign painted which rend, "Thomas P Och
iltree anil father, attorneys," etc
For the past live years Col Ochlltreo ha
withdrawn from politics ami lived at the
Hoffman house, Now York city. In such ro
'Iroiiieut as e-o'Vils of friends who love his
wit and brilliant conversation will permit.
He is a figure of the age lu which wo live
that survives from an a tee gone forever.
As such he merits exploitation before he
disappear from the stage.
