WILLIAM MORAN'S; ROMANCE
How the Seattle Shipbuilder Loved and

About 2S year, ago, back In Tork
Ktnte, two boya who had a stepmother,
set out for the we.t. They had
heard much of the great west, and
with boyish hope, they went to aeek
their fortune. The Moron boya were
of Irish stock and plurk to the back
Tramp fashion the boya made their
way aa fur aa Kanma City, and crow
ing the line Into Kansaa found work
on a farm. Will Moran " became a
"hund" for Thomas Wataon In Wyan
dotte county, nenr the little atatlon of
Wallula, now on the Kanaaa City
Northwestern railway. The other lad
round work with Henry Volght; a
neighbor of the Wateona. They bad
lived the llve of tramps and they
liked It, but they were willing to work
and that made up for all among the
farmer folk with whom they had cast
their lot. The moat priceless treasure

dark-eyed girl who waa the life of the

Moran, rugged Irish-American, tramp

tiful Alice. The farm hand looked
and loved In alienee. Not by a word
did he Intimate to Alice Wataon that
he loved her. The altuatlon becume eo
imhAnrable that he must disclose hla
regard for the girl. Then he thought
of the father. A kindly man to be
aure but with all hie aouthern dignity
and appreciation of the difference In
aoclnl position of a farm hand and
the daughter of a landowner. The
young Irishman's heart failed him.
He could not ak for the hand of the
girl, and he could no longer atay where
he mud aee her every day. He gath
ered hla little bundle of belonging..

before he left, not even to the girl her
self. His one Idea waa that aome day.

might come back and plead his cause.

Hie first disappointment came when
he learned that hi. old sweetheart bad
married a young farmer of the neigh
borhoodWilliamson , by name-
shortly after he and bla brother had
gone away. A family of children bad
grown up around them. A tenant oc
cupied the old Watson homestead and
the old farmer had retired from the
farm to try hi. fortune In a shoe shop
at 611 East fifteenth street. With the
charm of old association, upon him,
William Moran visited the home of the
Williamson family and waa heartily
received. In the presence of her hus
band and children. Mra. Alice William
son heard for the first time of the
affnctlon the farm hand had had for
her when she was a girl at home.
Grace Williamson, the oldest daugh
ter of Mra. Alice Wataon Wllllamaon,
waa almost an Image of her mother at
the same age. Mr. Moran eaw this re
semblance at once and, although he
said nothing at their first meeting, his
heart went out to the beautiful young
woman. He lingered In the neighbor
hood several week, renewing old ac
quaintance and cultivating the friend
ship of Grace Williamson. When he went
away it waa with the request t.ut e
might come again to visit her. This
he did (ome month, later, and Moran,
offering bl. band In marriage, was accepted.
About a year ago, it was September
It, 1903, there waa a wedding out at the
Williamson home, when the beautiful
young woman, Grace Williamson be
