pleaEe, it will afford you consolation
And hence no occasion will there be for
dispute.
"On the 15th day of June 1856, forty,
four years ago day after tomorrow, John
D. Prey and his eon, John W., landed at
or near the Bait basin, and were the
first that came with the purpose of mak
ing this their permanent home. Im
mediately came the Dee family, and in
a short time the new settlement con
tained a goodly number, among them
the names of, Keys, Gregory, Cadman,
the Loders, Retzlaff, Wollingford Doni
van, Moraan, Queen, and so I might go
on, names all familiar to you, with the
blue blood ot the pioneer, that came in
the Mayflower, coursing in their veins;
they came for a purpose, not alone to
satisfy any personal ambition but to
build for posterity that which we enjoy
today. Those were days ot great hard
ship, their privations were extreme; it
was a time when men's souls were tried
with equal severity to those their fath
ers endured in establishing the New
Republic. When you remember Cap
tain Donivan, Gregory, Warnes, Wal
lingford, Loder and Wood, perhaps one
or two others, it seems to me now there
were eight in number, mounted on their
jaded horses, armed with rifles, patroled
the bleak and lonesome prairies to pro
tect the settlers from the marauding
movements of the bloodthirsty Sioux,
now dealing with the mischiveious
Cheyennes, then treating with the
troublesome Arapahoes, all with a cour
age and determination of purpose that
must convince you that they were of
the came stock, were selected for the
same purpose, as was Staodish, Winslow
and others who came on the same mis
sion over a century before them.
"It was not alone, however, in the
men that the work was to be performed,
but they were strengthened, encourag
ed and sustained by the noble women
that came with them and endured the
awful privations uncomplainingly, and
with that degree of fortitude that is
again convincing that they were chosen
because of that peculiar and perfect
fitness for the mission that brought
them, and when Mrs. Prey was rescuing
little Rebecca, single handed and alone
from the marauding band ot Cheyennes
and Arapahoes on that bright, spring
day as she played among the wild
flower?, but a little ways from where
we now stand, wreathing garlands in
childish glee, it serves only to illustrate
the character and determination of all
the women that endured those dangers,
privations, distress and sorrow that we
might some day be possessed ot the
blessings and comforts that we now en
joy. "I wish that the time permitted a
careful and more extended review of
their lives, of their deeds, of their
character, and that I might contribute
to their memory the honor that is their
due. Jacob Dawson, Elder Young,
Doctor McKesson, T. S. Schamp, John
Giles, Jonathan Ball, Luke Lavender,
Thomas Hudson. And so I might go
on, repeating familiar and honored
names. Everyone of them, together
with their noble, loving and faithful
helpmates, earned the reward ot their
master for the faithful performance ot
their duties he gave them in charge to
do, and the loving memory ot a grateful
people that have profited by their lives,
sacrificed upon the alter of human pro
giees. "There can be no mistake therefore,
when I urge that they came for the
great purpose that I have outlined thus
briefly in this paper. Pioneers, upon
whom we tocToften look as an adven
turous class, drifting upon the tide of
humanity, without ruddbr or compas,
such were not the ones whose memory
we honor today, and find pleasure in
relating the reminences of their past,
which certainly will, as the years go by,

grow sweeter, by a better appreciation
by thoBe that are yet to come, of what
they did for humanity's sake. The
vital principles of constitutional exis
tence will then be better understood,
which they bo boldly enunciated, and
promptly endorsed. It is for time to
batter impress upon the understanding
of men the importance of the duty and
the obligation to perform it, as declared
by them, when they commenced the or
ganization of this colony. Their words
will go ringing down to prosperity, as
the guide to the future conduct of men.
"Let us perpetuate the blessings con
ferred upon us, so that the soverign
citizen of any state, looking to the
steady and harmonious progress of our
young territory, and its manly defense
of the interests of this republic may ap
ply to us, and with as profound emo
tion, the enconium bestowed by an il
lustrious general upon bis victorious
comrades, after a hard fought battle.
We have been baptized in fire and blood
and we have come out Steele.
"Let us heed then the lesson that
this celebration teaches. Let us be
alert to the progressive ideas that the
age advances, and make noble and
grand the inheritance that these, our
fathers, have left.
"For humanity sweeps onward ;
Where today the artyr stands ,
On the morrow crouches Judas ,
with the silver in his hand ;
Far in front, the cross stands ready,
and the crackling Fagots burn .
While the hooting mob of yesterday ,
in silence all, Return .
To glean up the scattered ashes , .
into history's- golden urn ."
"New occasions teach new duties;
Time makes ancient good uncoucth ;
They must upward still, and onward,
Who would keep abreast of truth ;
So before us gleamed her campfires;
We ourselves must pilgrims be,
Launch our Mayflower, and steer boldly
- Through the desperate winter sea ,
Nor attempt the future's portal
with the past's blood rusted key."
