A smooth shaven and Iwnovolent-faied
old gentleman with snow-while hair
and slightly sleeping form sat , the

recalled lo a Nobiaskan piusunl , lhatof
thoeniliest nettled paitor of Trinity
chinch In Omaha , and investigation
verified the suggestion. In an ani
mated conversation ol ox or an hour in
length , Mr. Watf-on wont over his ex
porionceH of Iho early dnjs in Omaha ,
nnd his conversation is repioduicd in
verj'\ feeble foi in , for the benefit of
many ol the older readers of the Dili : ,
who tomember , with warm feelings of
affection , the first Episcopal pastor In
jour city , and the pioneorof Lpiscop.iey
in jour stale.
"I shall never forget Omaha , " said
Mr. Watson. "Many of the tendeiest
rocol lection sot in early ministry clwttor
mound the citjThlitj' jears have
passed siiu-o I llrst mndo it my homo ,
mingled with its people , and was a part
ot the fiontier life. The old names come
back to me noxv with a thrill
ot pleasino. Iho old scenes
are indelibly stamped on my
memory. It is gr.itoful to recall
them after the lapse of veara and to
hear of those whom once I loved and of
whom I inn still fond. " .
"Nebraska , when I was first iiim-
inoned to make it a residence , was n
vorj'small plneo in ov 01 j thing but lei-
ritory. I'uilj in the w tutor of IS"I !
was pleaching in a small town in east
ern iovx'ii. xxhen I locoived a letter fiom.
Hishop Leestiongly uiging mo to take
charge of a recently organ i/ud chinch
in Omaha. 'You must resign jour charge
tit once , ' wiolo the bishop , 'and go
( underscoring the go ) . You are young ,
unmarried and Inn e no but dens. ' I had
been Uishop LCO'H assistant in Now
York stntu and wsus deeply attached to
him. Without hesitation I nccupled
the siiarge. It was .lanuarj' and in the
middle of a very seveio winter when I
started on the journey from loxxa Citj' .
The snow xxns waist deep and tlio ther-

Two nights out wu lost the load and
finally found a cabin xxith a single mom
and bud. both well occupied "bj1 bolutud
travelers. Wo slept on the floor and
fought for the privilege. The next
wo sighted the Missouri and eio-sod it
lo Omalia on ico.
"Omaha in 1.S-Y7 was a elnir.icteris.tie-
tilly westcin town. Farnam street was
sealccly defined by tlio foxv sti.iggling
stores and houses xxhich inn fiom thu
liver to the foot of the steep lull. Bo-
3ond that was the prairie. Tlieio weio
saloons in plenty , HOV oral hotels and
hoim * cabins which passed for private
ivL'idenijuri , but vxhih ( would lo jlay
l > robiibly not ho envied by the poo'rcst
of jour mechanics. I romumbor well
the loom of Senator Ililchcoek , then n
joung and unmarried manvxith ils bare
walls and seuHtj furniluio. I have often
onjojed its hospitable floors xxith its
warm bullalo icbe bed. Mr. Woolwoilh ,
u hriglil , keen and interesting jonng
man , xxtis not housed in a palatial resi

a dinner when the table xvas hotbotxveen
the doors of two rooms in older to ac
commodate the guests.
"Thoio vxoio no church buildings and
the beginnings of few church orgnni/u-
tioiiH. Bishop Komper had organi/ed
an Kdiscopal chinch which was home
less and without u pastor. 'Among its
\ostry , as I recall it , was C. W. Hamil-
Ion , A. J. Popploton , .J. M. Woolwoilh ,
T. H. Cnmiiig and John M'Coniho. It
was hard vxoik to find n place for vvoi-
Bhip. The jogishituro then in tension
, occupied Pioneer lwlPl.entod ( vxhoio
Goodman tioxv has his drug store ) and
the Claim cldh'nnd othc-r benevolent so
cieties shared its conveniences. My
first sermon was preached thoto. Dur
ing its delivery a man walked up to the
Improvised pulpit and handed me u
note. It read :
Preacher hurry up. Wo want lo tiy a

"I cut whorl several heads of my dis

' 'An amusing incident which I cat
never forget occured in the eluucli 01
Farnam street. We weio to have i
Christmas exhibition , acd as part of tin
programme , I vva.s set down to exuniin
the children in thuir catechism. Tin
first question is not adillleultono. 'Wha
is your namej" and I looked over th
llttlo group to select the smallest ono t
unswor the- easiest of the catechoslieu
wroblems. A vxco little tot of perhtip
four years mot my oj'o and amid a dee \
stillness I put th'o vuestlon , 'What i
your iinnior' The nnsxvor came in
ohrill but triumphant trebly childls
voleo :
'Mary Bovvmnn born in u waggin' .
"The exnmination could not go ou fo
sovcrnl miinitea. Mary's advent wans
typical of that of number of pionee
children thut it brought down the house
und pastor and congregation Joined i
the merriment.
"My pastorate took in Council Blufl
os well as Omaha. Many a Sunday
Jmvo walked uoioss the frozen rlvoi i'
'carrying u polo in ease of : icfcldunUun
tramping thr'ough pnow nearly wnist

BlutTs was tnen a livyly town. Judge
Douglas learning thut the board at the
hotels was about equal to my salary , of
fered temporarily on vorj' leasonablo

toniporarj1 accommodation spread itself
Over two years.
"I recollect lus vtvlilly as if It were
yc loiday .ludgo Conkling , tall , slim ,
stately , punetltlous for all the proprie
ties , and one of the ablest lawj'ers
which Now York has ever produced. Ho
had given up his fedcial jiidgcshlp for
the western distilct of Now Yorkunder
piyinlsei of jiolltlcal inefermeiit , and
after diplomatic service" In Mexico
came to Omaha , much against the
wishes of his familv. to build up a now
practice on the ftonlicr. Ho was a
stickler for correct English , niul the
slang of the frontier was his abomina
tion. Knowing this the joung lawjors ,
never too rigid in their n&oof language ,
Used to expand their vocabularj fre
quently to call outrematks fiom the
judgo. I remember one day in
his olllco Mr. Woolwoith , with
iv qui/zictil look , bioko out in
true fiontior style for the judge's ben-
lit. I shall never forget the tone of
stately rebuke with which the judge
said'Mr. ' Woolworth , it is astonishing
to mo that a joung man of your biccd-
ing and liberal education should use
such atrocious I'nglish. '
' 'Win. N. Byer was then in Omaha ,
iicllvo , vigorous and prosperous ! It
was a great duy In the town when ho
started for Denver with his printing
moss loaded In his wagon. Half of the
Inhabitants were in the stieottoseo
him olT and bid him Oed speed.
"Christmas was not our only festival.
I recall the Hrt Tlmnksgiv ing as well
as if it weroyojterdaj' . Win. D. Hlch-
atdfron was then governor and John M.
Coniho was in his olllco. Mr , McConiho
happened as t lemombcr it , tobo treas-
uior of the church. I dropped in one
daj" to see him , piobablj-about my sal-
arj' . Quitoaciowd was sitting mound
good natmallj challlngnnd in the inter
change of remarks some one called out
to the governor : 'Dick , all the other
states and territories are going to have
Thanksgivings and jou'll have to issue
' 'All ' called
a pioclamallon. righ ,
back Uichardson. 'Who can vvrito
pious' ? ' I don't remember whether
McConiho volunteered or not , but it was
cairied unanimously thai NebiusKnnot
to bo behind the states should have a
Thanksgiving and that Richardson
should issue the pioclammation. Then
began tin animated discussion as to the
day to bo set. 'Let's have it on Satur-
daj so that wo can sober up on Sunday.
v\a's suggested. The suggestion met
with general approval and Salmday was
the day sot for the first Thanksgiving
while 1 was in the leiritorj * .
"I retail an incident that occurred in
.Tune. I think , Of ISIS. T was in Lewis
Cass county , anxious to ride over in the
countrj to a parishioner's , T missed the
stage. Inquiry in the town brought out
the information that a land-huntor was
in the same ii\ and thut wo could proba-
blj * arrange to hiic a rig together ,
hunted him up and found him. Flo was
a cm uuis looking specimen. His legs
and arms weioof unusual length , encased -
cased inn suit of the cheapest kind of
linen , which looked tis'if they had come
f i oin a second-hand store. Thev weio
splashed fiom head to foot with mud
Hough , coarse boots , filled bj' huge , lln
bonj' foot , wore daubed \viththofriendlj' \
soil of Iowa. But he piovcd a delight
ful companion. He poiued anecdote
after anecdote in mj * eats , illustrating
almost cvorj * topic under the sun the
west , the republican paitv , slavorj' in
the terutorics and the political outlook.
It was Abiahtim Lincoln , f recall his
sij ing , 'If the people of the territories
honestly want admission with blaverj' ,
want it on a fair expression of opinion
of the majority , I am in favor of bowing
to tticir will. But I think'ho added
with a ' queer look'that they would bo
darne'd u > ols. ' '
"Mr. Lincoln was cither then securing
the quuitor section which ho owned in
Iowa or inve.stigating its value. Ho
spoKe a day later in''Council Blufls.
Among the crowd dressed in their bent
he stood in his linen suit , the mud spots
still ihero in spite of the brushing and
the boots by no means on regie for an
orator. But what a. speech , lie was
the greatest stump speaker I ever
hoanl. The audience was elootrfied and
was swajed at will by the now or of his
oiatorj- .
"It has boon manjjearr since I huvo
scon Omaha. The occasional messages
which I got from old friends grow moro

The I'onttst bolx.-con barburi'-m and

Indians vv ithout any schools in our coun

blindly for tight ; ignorant of Oed ami
the Savior of mankind : bowing down to
idols of wood and stone : and all this is
in our own country under Iho slars and
slrti > es of freedom'tinder Iho very shad
ows of the CCO-.3 of Christ , and almost
within thu MM ml of chuich bolls in the
west. Shame upon our civill/ation ,
Minnie upon our juslice nnd slunnu upon
our C'hrislianllv. Those good people of
Boston , New York , and Philadelphia
and other cities who ate anslous about
the heathen of other lands had better
look to Iho heathen of their own land.
Every one of these i2l,8S ( ) Indian child
ren of a schoolable ago should bo in
school and we should provide schools
for them. The govcinment will not
do it ; it is too mean and will only pilfer
and rob the Indian of his land.Vo
should have a do/en such schools as
Carlisle , Hamilton , and Forest GIOVO.
They do good but they do not wholly
moot the wants of the Indian. The
children should be educated at home ,
a1) ) far as possible , that wo may have the
inlluence ot the children unon their
juronls. Look at the example ot our
foreign population : in the last eleven
jears ox or l.ooS.UOO immigrants fiom
every country in the world have landed
on our shores and assimilated with our
people. Kvery year more foreigners
come than the whole Indian population
in our country amounts to and they dis
appear in the great mass of our people
and assimilate with them and wlijV
Dccause * they enter our schools as soon
as they come and begin studjing our
language , manners nnd customs. I
would have every Indian educated in
our Innguago and not his ow n ; stop the
Indian jargon and teach them to .speak
I'nglish. Then we can civili/e and
chriitiani/o thum and point them the
way to God.
All tribal relations should bo seveied
ns soon as possible , and the Indiansseat-
tered and put on farms. When thej be
come farmers they will cease to bo war
riors , and all danger fiom them be at an
end. The government should help
them liberally , giving them seed to sow
and farmers to shoxv them how to plant.
Cattle , hordes , implements and wagons
should be given them. They should be
eiiunii.iged lo work , but not compelled.
The truth is we can do but little with
the old follows , but the .voting ones are
as blank sheets of wluto paper unon
which wo make anv , kind ot an im
pression xve please. Tl-o older one will
soon pass away and Ihe joung ones take
their place * , timl then w ill come the real
civili/ation , education and refinement
of the Indian race in our country. It
may take two or three generation to per
fect the work , but il can be done if we
are pitiont and linn , and the Indian
can bo educated , civih/cd , i dined and
assimilated with our laws , people and
While the Indians aie dependent on
the government tor support I would not
allow any parent his rations of beef ,
Hour or 'anj thing unless ho kept his
children in school. This would conquer
the most sullen and unruly tiibcn'and
compel them to educale their children.
Hut Ihere is little tiouble in getting In
dian parents to send their children to
school ; all that 1 have seen aie glad to
do it. and seem lo understand as well as
vv Into people thu importance of educa
tion. "Tlio white man's loud , " as thoj'
call it , is a favoiite ro id for them , and
the children will go to school willingly
if thej' arc kinrtly treated ; and if they
don't go willingly their patents will
m.ike them go.

then , did thej- fall to get the biand of < iuint-

these balls a number of very fashionable
men , in this case u hundred , named each
seven persons to be invited. Not onlv wore
thej' eh irged to select proper individu
als , but the lists were scanned closely by a
special and export committee. Now , this
"host society" of ouis Is alvvijs desirous of
Itself pleasantly published. Of course , it
wouldn't do to Issue icgulur Invitations In

of papers refused vv hen the question was
raised scvci al vcurs ago to send rciwrters
to hang about the doors and poop through
the kov holes. That might bo done for the
sake of Important news , but not for uny ball.
Mrs. William Aator happened to bo thu con

two beaux , whoj jiersonallj'convejed to the

example settled the usago. Chosen rcjmrt-

to whom ha hud boon Introduced by his
former college chum , the son of a Crcusus.

not mean that the institution should go Into

This v car they went aiound with a pauer
