1 cf "Hoosier" I
A story of tho origin of the nan
"Hoosier," perhaps tho truo one, was
told tho other day, "in the white win
ter of his age," by John S. Stackwell,
Iho oldest Inhabitant of Chartestown,
Ind., and a former sheriff of Clarlc
county. Mr. Stockwcll was born near
Charlcstown in 1811. Though 04
years old ho has n vast fund of plo
nror reminiscences, which ho recounts
entertainingly, but tho story of the
origin of tho Hoosier name ho had not
told for years.
The other day Mr. Stockwell met
Carl Brayflold, odltor of tho Clark
County Citizen, on Main street, and a
happy thought struck him.
"Did you ever hear how the name
Hoosier originated?" ho asked.
"I've heard several explanations,"
was the reply, "but nono Is satisfac
tory." 'Then I will tell you the true sto
ry," said the old man, seating hlmselt
before a butcher shop, where a chair
always Invites the loiterer.
"Tho word Is a corruption of tho
"Tho incident that gave the state
lta nickname," continued Mr. Stock
well, "happened at the digging of the
Portland canal around the falls of the
Ohio at Louisville. The date was, I
believe, about 1820, and the Uile was
told mo by William Coombs, who was
a leading citizen or, this town In his
day. Ht said that a gang of Ind!
anions from Clark lounty took a sub
contract to dig the canal, The Indl
anlans lived together In a separate
camp and several other companies ot
laborers had their camps near by. '
"Of ceurse. thero was plenty of liq
uor In tho Kentucky camp. Ono day
a big Hcntucklan got Jubilantly drunk
and started to clean out the Indiana
crowd. Ho posted himself before tho
Clark county camp, like Goliath ot old,
phoutlng tauntingly that ho was tha
best man there.
"'I nm from Lexington,' yelled tho
big fellow, 'where tho women nro tho
liwectest and tho horses aro tho fleet
est and the whisky is completcst of
-ny placo In the universe and whero
tlie Ho always calls for a blow. I
stand up beforo this wholo camp and
call tho d He! I'll fight tho first
man that takes It up!"
"Then out from tho Indiana camp
strode a man whose namo I've forgot
ten. It Is n pity It Is, for ho ought
lo havo n skyscraplng monumant. Ho
was six feet high and of tho good old
stock that smashed tho Prophet of
Tlppccanoo nnd took KnBknsia nnd
Vlnccnncs from the BrltlBh. His
words were few, but ho knew how
to do things.
"'You hush,' said tho Indlanlan
simply, as ho stepped out from his
"I call tho d n lie!' cried tho Ken
turklan onco moro.
"'You hush,' said tho Clark county
man again; you hush and go away.'
Hut tho big man did not hush. Then
tho Indiana man sailed In nnd gavo
him a terrific thrashing. Tho Ken
(ucklnn wni mauled black. and blue,
and finally begged for mercy. Tho vic
tor allowed him to rlso and tho com
batants retired to their soparato quar
ters. '''You wiped up tho earth with
him." said one of tho Hoosier friends
oo Mm champlon'u roturn to tho camp.
" 'Yes,' was tho reply, 'I mndo him
hush. I'm a hushcr.'
"Tho story gotjibroad In tho camp,
and soon tho Iudlanlans wore nit
known as 'Hushcm' about 'tho falls.
Tho name was scattered everywhere,
and peoplo who did not know how
the term originated corrupted it to
When lie had hoard" tho story John
Carr, tho butcher, recalled that his fa
ther, Col. Thomas Carr, an early
sheriff of Clark county, had told him
tho fuino story In Ills boyhood. Doth
ho nnd Cnrl Hrayflold, whoso father
was for many years chief of tho asso
ciate bench of tho Vlnccnncs district
under tho old constitution, "rcmomboi
that tho word "Hushcr," meaning one
who could sllenco thoso who nnnoyed
him by force, was current nil over
In Indiana. With tho spread of educa
tion tho old dialect began to pant
away, nnd tho word "Hushcr" became
corrupted Into Hoosier. nut tho name
to which It gave birth fastened Itself

derhes Its origin was rescued, ns It
