THE DAY PHffiNIX.
The Celebration Locally a
A Very Clever Address by
J. W. Crenshaw.
A Creditable Parade- and a 3(ugnill-
cent Outpouring of People
Tho "day wo celebrate" opened up
bright and propitious, and wovoral de
grees less warm than tho days of the
week preceding. JuBt enough breezo
was stirring to throw out and unfold in
its full beauty, from every flagstaff, tho
glorious emblem of our country's power.
At 5 a. m, tho Pioneer Brass Band as
sembled at the corner of City Hall plaza
and greeted the day with the inspiring
strains of tho "Star Spangled Banner."
Other patriotic melodies followed, pleas
antly awakening the tow nspeople.
Tho work of decorating began early
and was not suspended until noon, when
the city presented an appearanco both
patriotic and attractic. All tho busi
ness houses had their fronts adorned
with streamers of bunting and scores of
flags, and a number of tho displays wqw
Alout nine o'clock the outbide resi
dents and farmers commenced to pour
in and tho streets filled up with pleasure
seekers from all parts of tho valioy.
At4 p. m. tho crowd surged out to
Patton's Park, where a match game of
base ball had been arranged between
tho Phtenix and Bee Hivo clubs. Tho
contest was apparently a ,ery one-sided
affair, for tho score at tho'end of tho
ninth inniug btood 10 to 2 in favor of
Pha-nix. Tho puree played for was $50,
but sido bets increased tho amount to
about $100 a side.
Later in tho afternoon tho center of
attraction was the corner of Montezuma
and Washington streets, where the pro
cession was to start.
Contrary to tho usual custom, tho
procession started promptly at tho time
advertised, and swung around into
Washington street in brilliant style.
The column was led by Major
Schwartz, marshall of tho day, who was
assisted by City Marshal Blankcnship
ami Ed. Scarborough.
Next came the Pioneer Brass Band,
discoursing military music in a manner
that would have done credit to a profes
Company II, First Regiment, N. G. A.,
followed, with Captain Andro at tho
head. The marching of these young
soldiers was much commended by on
lookers, tho alignment being especially
noticeablo for its excellence. The order
of inarching was changed at times, but
in an tno movements tno company
showed tho results of careful drill. Tho
uniforms were neat and all the
accoutrements wero soldierly.
Tho Select Knights, A. O. U. W.,
wero next led by Vice-Commander
Itecarti. Their handsome uniforms and
steady marching made them quite an
attractive feature in tho line.
. Two carriages, respectively containing
the Governor, the speaker of the evening
and tho City Council, came next.
Chief Czarnowski led tho Firo De
partment. Engine Company No. 1 was
first, their machine handsomely deco
rated w ith streamers and Hags. Follow
ing were tho Hook and Ladder Com
pany and Hose Companies Nos. 1 and 2,
The general public in vehicles closed
Tho line of March was to tho Lemon
hotel, countermarching on Washington
street to Mohave, thence to Monroe, to
Yavapai and the parade grounds.
A crowd of at the lowest estimate
2600 pcoplo had assembled on
and around tho benches in front
of the sneakers stand, which had been
neatly decorated by tho committee.
The column disbanding, tho militia
company marched to tho rear of the
stand and fired three rousing volleys as
. a saluto to tho day.
Governor Woliley was tho chairman
of the evening. At 8 o'clock he stepped
to the front of tho platform, under tho
glare of tho electric light, and called tho
audience to order in tho follow ing terms:
Ladiex and Oe.nti.emen' To -the members
of the I'hcenlx Uuanl we owe the pleasure of
thus beliiK able to celebratu this our natal
day of liberty.
ft Is the day on which our impulses should all
beat as one. It Is the day that risliif; generations
should be taught to respect and to venerate.
It is the day that should be as an evergreen In
all our hearts.
The ceremonies will begin with a blessing by
Her. Mr. Fuller.
Rev. Fuller's prayer was a beautifully
worded appeal to tho Almighty to watch
over and direct tho fortunes of tho Re
public. After music by tho baud Webster
btreet was presented and read, in a for
cible manner and sonorous intonation,
tho Declaration of Independence.
J. V Crenshaw was introduced as tho
speaker of tho ecnlng. His oration
was short, but full of points that drew
from tuoaudience tho applauso deserved.
It w.asaa follows:
Ladjes and Gentlemen: When we turn over
the pages of history and trace tho rise and fall
of empires, the mighty revolutions, which have
so often varied the nations of the worlds, strike
our minds with solemn surprise, unci we
are naturally led to search the (.antes of such
That man Is formed for socIr) li fn li ih (U.i
observation which Is presented to our view and
our reason approves that wlo anil generous
principle which actuated tho first founders of
civil government; an Institution which tales
i uriKiu iruiu inuneuKiiessoi inuivldualsand
has for Its end the strength and security of all.
and so long as tho means of effecting this lm
portent end are thoroughly known and con
scientiously attended to, government Is one of
the greatest blessings to man land should. be
held in tho highest veneration.
In young und new formed communities the
grand design of this Institution Is generally
understood and strictly regardtd; the motives
which urged to tho social comiuit
cannot be readily forgotten, and that
equality which Is remembered to have so lately
subsisted among them, prevents those who are
clothed with authority from attempting to In.
Tude tho freedom of others: or, if an attempt 1
made. It prevents the community from sullerlng
the i offender to go unpunished: every member
feels It to bo his duty to preserve iuvlolato tho
constitution on which tho nublln nftv .i.
ponds, and so long as this noble, attachment to
a constitution, founded on freo and benevolent
principles exists In full vigor In any country,
that country must be prosperous and happy. It
was this attachment to a freo constitution
which raised Home from tho smallest boglnnlug
to that dazzling summit of happiness and glory
to which she attained: it was the loss of this
which plunged her from that summit Into the
black gulf of infamy and slavery.
It was this attachment to a constitution
founded on free and benevolent principles,
which inspired the first settlers of this country
and It was this attachment to a freo constitution
which caused tho representatives of theAmcr
lean colonies to meet at thdeity of I'hlladelphia
one hundred and fourteen years ago today, end
sire as a logaoy to tho American colonies that
bill of rights tho Declaration of Independence.
Yes, we have assembled together today to cole,
brate the anniversary of American Independ
encean occasion commemorating the loftiest
achievements of political virtue having tor Its
foundation principle, equal rights to all, and
among tbeso ure life, liberty ana the pursuit of
This was the true and enduring principle on
which our government was founded, and we
ought to be tilled with sentiments of tho
warmest enthusiasm, when wo celebrate our
Independence, and also with feelings of the
greatest respect and veneration for those
patriots who fought, bled und died for liberty.
More than a century has passed away since
the Declaration of Independence and tho adop
tion of a constitution, jetso firmly planted fn
our hearts is tho attachment to n constitution
founded on freo anil licuevolent principles, that
wo can meet and feel the sumo enthusiasm us
was felt one hundred years ago. Then our
country was In its Infancy, now it stands among
tho first nations of tho earth. Then It had a
population of a Utile more than three millions,
now its population Is more than sixty millions.
When we looLbaik to 1770, and see tho thtr
teen States that compo-cd tho Union, with their
8pirsely eettli.il country and their straightened
circumstances, opposing the greatest nation on
earth, wo woudcrat the fortltudo and courage
dlsplajed, and the glorious victories that
followed, giving to us a land of freedom,
whose ports huv o o v or been open to the oppressed
of all nations America! the homo of liberty:
the asylum of the oppressed! America, whose
liberal support of schools and colleges, her ad
vancement In the sciences and arts and her
noble institution s of charity have given the
crowning grace aud glory to modern civiliza
tion. Yet, wo have made rapid and lasting strides
In the devplopraent of our internal resources;
our commerce with foreign nations has In
creased In such a manner that we see in our
marVets the goods aud products from all nations
of the globe, with whom we exchange our com
modllles; we have done much to lurtherthe
cuum) of universal cducatleu; and last, but not
least; we have held dear the rights and interests
of our fellow men ovcrj n here; und have done
inuth to promote religion, peace and good will
among the nations of the earth,
We come, then today, my friends, with hearts
filled with gratitude to Uod and man to pass
down our country, and Its Institutions not
without scars aud blemishes, not without shad
ows on the past or clouds on the future, Dut
firmly rooted In the love and lojalty of a united
people to tho generations which are to suc
Somo one has said "Happy are the people
which have no history.' Not sol As it is
better to have loved and lost than never to have
loved at all, so It Is better to have lived greatly
even though we have suflereil much than to
have passed a long 1. fa of Inglorious case. We
havosutlered greatly and greatly reloUcd, we
have drunk deeply of tho cup of Joy and of
sorrow, wo have tasted the agony of defeat, and
we have supped the pleasures oCvletory. We
have proven ourselves equal to great deeds,
and wo have learned what qualities are pos
sessed which we ourselves did not suspect.
And here! would Impress Uon the rising
generation and invoVe them to imitate and
emulate tho example of virtue, purity and pa
triotism, which tho great founders of our coun
try have left them. America has presented to
the world the character of Washington, and tho
enthuslastlo veneration aud regard in which
the peoplo of tho United States hold him, prove
them to bo worthy of such a countryman.
My friends, we should feel grateful on this
occasion for many things. We should feel
?rateful to our revolutionary heroes
or giving us such a magnificent form
of government, and for protecting und sustain
ing It through times of uncertainty and war:
wo should feel grateful for tho preservation of
the Union during the time of civil war, when
father fought against son, and brother against
brother: we should feel grateful for peace and
prosperity after the roar of cannon und tho
deafening din of battlo are heard no more
when the Implements of war aro laid aside to
rust and business occupies the thoughts of our
people; and w e should greatly rejoice that today
we are one people, reunited with one country
and one flag.
We stand today, on what was once a desert,
over which roamed the wild Apache, dealing
out death and destruction to the car! settlers.
If It were possible for places to speak, every
trail throughout Arizona could tell of the dteds
of this heartless and savage tribe, and also of
the courago and bravery of the pioneer and
miner, to whom we are Indebted for what Ari
zona is today. American progress and industry
havo reclaimed Arizona both from tho Apache
and the desert.
Wo look around us and, Instead of a trackless
w aste, w e behold beautiful fields of yellow grain,
green pastures of alfalfa, orchards and vine
yards filled with luscious fruits, and embowered
amongst the green foliage of the Cottonwood,
ash and umbrella, wo And the homes of an In

shaw's ellorts had hardly subsided when
tho firework display upon tho rear stand
was commenced. A low rockets wero,
successfully sent skywnrd, when a
refractory ono took a sido shoot and
knocking aside tho canvas cover of a box
full of material for colored 11 res and
rockets, set the contents on firo. The
rockets shot aud tho fires blazed and
Sergeant Ambler and Private Mintz,
the committee in charge, lost no time in
tluiir going. Mintz jumped from tho
twelve-foot platform without injury, but
Ambler lit hcaily, spraining both
ankles and breaking one of tho small
bones of tho leg.
A few daring spirits managed to se
cure several boinns that wero lying un
der tho stand, but tho rest of the $160
display sputtered and fizzled and flew
around in a dangerous way until en
tirely consumed. Tho firo then spread
to tho wood work and tho scaffold was
brightly blazing when tho lire depart
ment arrived on tho scene. Tho firo
was quickly put out though but llttlo
remained of the light structure.
About this time tho electric lights
went out and tho crowd, with enthu
siasm decidedly dampened, turned
away, some towanl their homes and
others to tho Fiesta.
