Arkansas City, Kan., Sept 18.—At
high noon to-day 100 United States
carbines cracked in the dry air and
with exulting yells 30,000 men and
women, all American citizens, rushed
into the Cherokee strip—almost the
last section of the public domain that
will be thrown open to general settle-
The following figures show the
number of people who made the run:
From Arkansas City—lly train, 8,000;
by horse, 22,000.
From Giidwill liy train, 3,000; by
The view of the rush at 12 o'clock
from the observatory on tho Chilocco
school was full of exciting interest
Just lKjforc the hour, with a field
glass the long line of horses and men
densely packed for 800 feet back could
be seen. At high noon the sharp
crack of a revolver was distinctly
heard and immediately following
came the reports of the carbines. A
hoarse yell went up, softened by tho
distance, aud the line got in motion.
Horses were seen to shoot out from
the ruck and dash across the prairie.
Then a dense cloud of du.it obscured
the lino for a moment, but a brisk
wind from the west cleared it away,
and the men and wagons could be
seen scattering as the slowest were
left behind. Now and then a wagon
would go over with a wheel knocked
A horse was seen to rear in the air
as he was struck by a wagon tongue
and fall back. 11 is rider was up in an
instant and b*nt over his horse.
Then he arose, aud from his gestures
it was plainly seen that he had been
left at the post
The last of tho rushing hosts were
not long in disappearing over the hill
nto the swale at the south line of the
Chilocco reserve, the rear being
brought up by a throng of men and
women on foot and a few teams on a
The whole thing was spectacular,
but it was soon over, too soon.
The trains did not pull out of the
Santa Fe yards until sometime after
2 o'clock and the jam then was awfuL
At least 15,000 people including most
uf the population of Arkansas City,
were there to boar I the trains.
Special trains from Wichita, Wintield
and other near points came in loaded
The way the trains were run was a
bitter disappointment to town lot
seekers, as any wagon which left in
the rear of the line could have beaten
them to Ponca.
Great recklessness was displayed in
jumping on and off the trains by tho
crowd eager not to get left, and there
were many narrow escapes. No cas-
ualties happened, however, and after
considerable delay the first section
moved out slowly. Most of the people
who went in on the trains carried
blankets and provisions and some of
them small tents All will have to
sleep on the ground to-night, as they
will not be able to get back, all of the
regular trains having been laid off.
The crush to get on the trains was
awful. After the cars were full peo-
ple climbed to the roofs aud soon cov-
ered them. They clung to the steps,
invaded the engine and even crawled
upou the trucks. Inside the cars the
iam was frightful,people were crushed
in and tho pressure at the doors
could not be stopped. The efforts
of the deputy marshals did not
avail much after the first, few had
shown their certificates. The trains
left hundreds of disappointed pi oplo
behind who were unable to get a foot-
hold. At the edge of the strip a horde
of people were waiting to b ard the
trains but there was no room for
them. Tho Santa Fe sold 8,000 tick-
ets for the trains, most of them for
Camped along side the track at the
state line were about 200 men. They
had walked out to take the trains
there this morning. When they could
not even secure foothold they threat-
ened to throw ties under the cars.
The town is literally deserted, banks
are closed and most of the stores are
in possession of tho proprietors, all
tlie clerks having gone to the border
to make the run.
Fully Ten Thousand 1'eople Muke the
Cai dwell, Kan, Sept. 18.—Two
minutes after noon to-day 10,000 peo-
ple who had gathered along the bor-
der south of Caldwell were rushing
helter skelter into the strip in every
direction as far as the eye could reach.
Five minutes later the fleetest and
foremost horsemen were mere specks
ami clouds of dust in the distance and
behind them were hundreds and hun-
dreds of white covered wagons and
buggies trooping into the land, leav-
ing behind them great clouds of dust
to mark the line.
The people did not become impatient

more excitement than ever along the
lines of people who had stood so many
hours waiting for the opening.
A 12 o'clock a cannon sounded away
off several miles cast of the hills
where sightseers had assembled.
There was a cloud of dust in the dis-
tance. There was another report
nearer, but it was the report of a cav-
alryman's carbine. The lino of dust

crowd. There were some lively races,
but there are too many entries to ob-
serve individual contests.

time in the letd of every one and they

Twentj-Klve Thousand People Make the
Hush—Maujr Huoners Already In.
Orlando, Ok., Sept 18.—Twenty-
five thousand men and women with a
goodly number of boys and girls
started at the sound of carbines held
by cavalrymen sharp at noon to-day.
Hundreds went in on trains which
were jammed but tho grand rush was
by horse and wagon.
Trains both north bound and south
bound yesterday and to-dav ran in
many sections and all were loaded to
the platforms. Women clung to the
guard rails and men hung to tho
engines and the roof like bees. The
rush was especially big from Arkansas
City and was made up of men who
came to this side of the strip to run
for Perry town lota Conductors esti-
mate that no less than 5,000 men
crossed the strip yesterday.
Yesterday trains encountered prairie
fires on the strip which burned so
fiercely that in a number of placosthe
ties were so badly scorched that there
was danger in passing over the track.
Frequently the trainmen had to get
off and pour water upon the burning
ties and once a bridge was found to bo
on tire. The slow speed necessitated
by the fires enabled the men to get
off the trains in great numbers. Fully
300 boomers managed to get off and
run into hiding in the Ponca reserva-

All of this army of men were after
homesteads and none wanted town
lots. In consequence there were no
thoroughbred racers in tho line.
Scores went into the lard in wagons
with equipments necessary to begin
farm work at once.
There were of course many exciting
races for quarter sections believed to
be extra good, but these contests were
not marked features of the run.

to a point thn-e miles south of Man-
teno when a local train, which was
preceding it, slowed up, and a fiag-
uiau was sent back to inter ept
it. The engineer 011 the first section
obeyed the signal and drew his train
to a standstill. The flagman of the
first section in turn started for the
rear, but tho second section was fol-
low.ng so closely that he had gone but
a few yards when around u sharp
curve the headlight of the second
section appeared. Tho first sec-
tion was now at a standstill and the
second section had not lessened its
speed of thirty-five miles an hour. The
curve was partly responsible for this.
The flagman .lumped down the steep
embankment just in time to save him-
self from death. The engineer, as
his locomotive rounded the curve, re-
versed the engine. Seeing the hope-
lessness of any attempt to check the
speed of his train in so short a dis-
tance, lie jumped down the embank-
ment. and his fireman followed him.
The crash came then and the loco-
motive drove ahead with 111 ghty force
into the heavy sleeping car, smashing
the frame work of its rear end to

in turn driven into the day coach next

pletely, its timbers being lighter.

with people, more than half of those

ing timbers of the wrecked cars.

Ceutennial of the l.ayinjf of the National
Capitol Corner Stone.
Washington, Sept. 19 —The hun-

corner stone of the capitol building
was celebrated yesterday with impos-
ing ceremonies. When the corner stone
was laid this magnificent city was a
village. Escorted by a small band of
patriotic citizens and a troop of
soldiery, Washington, accomoanied by
his cabinet and many of the illustrious
men of his day, rode to the forest-
crowned hill on which the capitol now
stands to lay the corner stone of
that giant structure. Over the same
route yesterday, President Cleveland
was escorted by dashing cav-
alry, marching infantry, blaring bands
and a vast multitude of people, to add
his presence and words to tlie cele-
bration of the anniversary of tho
event Upon the gaily decorated
platforms, in addition to the orators
of the day, there sat the members of
both branches of congress, the judges
of the supreme court clad in their
judicial ermine, the members of the
cabinet and other high dignitaries of
the government On the right of the
platform was stationed tho marine
band and the chorus of 1,500 voices
under the direction of Prof. CIoward.

about half way between Calumet and

After securing the booty the rob-

affair was such a surprise that the
passengers knew nothing of it till the
train had started.
