The Rifle Its Influence
In American History
D. Wiggins
From that bright October morning
in 1102, when ascertain Genoese sail

Castile with salvoes of musketry on
the sands of a little island in the Ba
hamas, the taint of gunpowder has

history. 1 he investigation of some ot

It was the crash of a cannon fired
from the leading vessel that announc-
1 to the expedition that the end of
the voyage was reached. And it was
the thunder of the arquebuses that
filled the hearts of the gentle inhabit

ed them to pray to the "God of thun
der, as they christened the weapons,
not to sluv them.
Jts pretty safe to affirm that if the
Conquistudores had depended on cold
steel we wonldn 't be here today, for
the sudden death dealt by the fire

charm to the Indians. They decided
that the holders of such fearful wea
pons were gods, a belief that was soon
Fussing from the Spanish gold seek

Massachusetts and Virginia, we still
find the gun their main dependence
for food and protection against sav
age beasts and men. The I'ilgrim is
invariably pictured as going to church
with his fusil over his arm, but
when ye scribe sneakes his Winchester
out of doors on the Saliliath he is nev
er asked what the text was.
The rifle as we know it did not ap
pear in nnv great numbers iu America
till the dawn of the IHth century, the
first crude model being brought trom
Germany, und subsequently improved!
till the frontiersman was satisfied to
trust his life to it in nnv danger. The
most noted of the arms, of those days
was the Deckard ritle, made by Ju
lius Deckard in a little shop in Penn
sylvania -
The first forcible injection of
American shooting into national af
fairs came in the colonial wars with
France. The borderers on both sides
appear have used the twisted gun,
as it was called, with deadly effect on
their antagonists, and the eagerness ot
the Kuropcan troops to charge the
buckskin clad men became noticable
by its absence.
Perhaps the most noted body of men
in the French and Indian War was the
corps commanded by James Rogers, and
known as Rogers Hangers; their fume
as fighting men was second to none in
North America. Their operations were
principally on the northern New York
frontier, ami the French held them ill
great fear. A tavorite exorcise among
riflemen of that day was the splitting
of a bullet on the edge of a limiting
knife at fiftv paces; the execution
done bv such shots is belter imagined
than described.
And (hen came the Revolution.
This struggle impressed upon the
civilized world the fact that a back
Woodsman equipped with his rifle was
a good person to avoid when seeking
trouble. Man for man, he was far the
superior of the flower of European
Morgans Rifles, a Virginia regiment,
was composed exclusively of dead shots
and on the marksmanship of one of
them, an risternian by the name of
Tim Murphy, rests a large amount of
the credit for the victory at Saratoga.
I will explain the statement this way:
The battle of Saratoga is recognized
by all historians as the turning point
in the struggle for independence, and
the loss of General Frazer was the
fatal stroke to tho British arms.
Frazer, a Scotchman, was the direct
ing genius of the expedition, Aid to
Burgoyne, he was the man who miulc
the plans for the great inarch, and at
tended to every detail. His was the
guiding spirit, for he appears to have
been the only officer of ability, in tho
whole command.
During the fighting Frazer was di
recting the movements of his men
from an exposed position w hen he was I
niticed by Benedict Arnold. Arnold I
seems ot have known Frazer before
the war, and to have recognized the;
fact that upon Frazer depended the
fate .'(! the day. Riding under the tree
in which Murphy and another were
sniping the enemy, Arnold told the lug

English Expect Trouble
With Clyde Laborers
London, June 12. (By Mail) The
labor troubles on the Clyde are over
for the moment. '
That, there will be further strikes in
this big munitions making district is
not only feared, it is expected.
Opinion in England today is divided
as to the real reason whv some 3,000 1
workmen, at the most critical period !
ed' the war, downed tools in defiance
of the government and despite the
patriotic appeals of their own labor
union; but there aw few who will dis
pute th assertion that the situation
was sadly mishandled by the author
In the first place the fact I hat a
strike was on was concealed until'the
last possible moment.
Then, insteirtl of acting with vigor
under the acts of Parliament which
forbid striues in munitions factories on
any ground whatever, and promptly ar
resting the offenders, tho government
compromised by merely deporting the
ring-leaders to another district.
That these men were not given a
public, trial is resented as much by
workmen generally as by their asso
ciates. Such a. trial would doubtless have
brought o"t the underlying causes of
the strike. The charge has boon freely
made that German influences, including
German money, w'ere responsible. This
is hotly denied, not only by the men
involved but by lnbor leaders generally.
It is much to the credit of organized j
labor in this fount rv, however that the
strikers have been roundlv denounced
by the responsible heads of the labor i
Even those
labor leaders who nre
avowed pacificists, like George Lans
bnrv. have condemned them.
"Wo pacifists," says Lansbury,
''dare not interfere with the essential
supplies needed by the army and navy
until the nation gives the word to
'stop tho war'. It is simply murder to
send men out unarmed and improperly
equipped. It. is our own flesh and
blood in the trenches, and at whatever
cost, we who remain at home must do
nothing to hinder them."
Lansbury ascribes the troubles on the
Clyde chiefly to lack of sympathy be
tween employers itd. workmen, similar
to that prevailing in the South Wales
One of the most radical, as well as
most troublesome, labor leaders befol'
the war was Ben Tillett, of the Trans
port workers' union, who in tho lasl
few months has been going up and
down the ootintrv preaching patriotism
and loyalty among his fellow workers,
and urging them to join the army.
Few men have been more bitter in
titcir denunciation of the action of the
Clyde strikers, but even Tillett has
been uble to see "the other side" of
the question.
"From the point of view of the men
the trenches," said Tillett today,
accuracy of which it was capable.
The musket was without these grooves,
and was not dangerous at over one
hundred and fifty yards. All muskets
iu use today are rifled, however.
During a long period the tide of
emigration was pouring westward, and
the hardy pioneers depended upon the
rifle to feed them, and also to ex
terminate the Indians and dangerous
animals. Boone, Sevier, llarind, Rob
ertson, anil others of their ilk were
not men to waste a shot when a miss
meant the loss of their scalps.
As it is the fashion among the mod
em writers to jeer at our achievements
during the War of 112 would like
to call their attention to the battles
in the Ohio Valley, notably
tense of Fort Meige and tli
the de-
bat ties
at the Thames. Both of these engage
ments were riflemen's fights, and cer
tainly refute the statements that oui
men were ilriven like sheep.
Tho shooting nf the Americans on
