At the Basket Picnic Held
Indiana Oratory, Poetry,
Music and Feasting- On
the .Program.
The Hoosiers held forth yesterday
nearly all day at Kustlake park where
about two hundred of them gathered
ear.y from city and countryside for
the annual basket picnic and reunion.
The weather though a little threaten
ing: was pleasant and the crowd of
Indiaiutns thoroughly enjoyed the oc
casion. A diversified series of events
was to take place and all assembled
with the spirit of goodfellow ship and
Plate pride. There was not a single
unpleasant incident to mar the happi
ness of the passing hours, and but one
disappointment perhaps, and that was
the absence of Governor Kibbey who
had been expected to deliver the prin
cipal . address of the day. Honever
from him nas received a letter which
was read during the course of the af
ternoon program.
The morning- was devoted to forming
acquaintances and discussion of topics
of special interest to Hoosiers. The
park management gave the grounds
over to the uses of the Indianans, and
the swings and the grassy lawns, and
the boats on the lake with an oarsman
were -utilized by the children and older
folks as well. At noon dinner was
spread on the lawn and the sumptuous
feasts were brought from the baskets.
The iavixhhess with which the ladles
so adept In the culinary art had pro
vided for the occasion, left nothing to
be desired, except to lounge In well
fed ease, till the Indiana oratory and
poetry and reminiscences should be
marshaled on the scene. -
At the close of a varied and interest
ing afternoon's program it wax voted
to make the organization ' permanent
and the picnic an annual occurrence.
The following officer were elected:
Joseph H. lyibbey, president; DrMon
ical, vice president: Mrs. E. T. fol
dings, secretary; Mrs. G. F. Merryman,
treasurer. The speech-making and
music were listened to in the park
summer theater building where the
people assembled shortly after dinner.
Dr. Monical presided and briefly ad
dressed the meeting, and introduced
the speakers. Judge Kyle spoke to the
Hoosiers in a few well chosen remarks
and read the letter from the governor
which was as follows:
The Governor's Letter.
'It is with regret that I have to an
nounce to you my inability to attend
the Indiana picnic on the 19th instant.
Official matters requiring- my personal
attention call me to other parts of the
territory, so that I shall be absent from
Phoenix on that day. I cannot refrain,
however, from sending you and the
other Hoosiers -who may be assembled
on that occasion, a few lines of greet
ing. "It is a notable trait" of Americans
that they can and do readlly.and con
stautly expatriate themselves, and yet
are of all people of the earth the most
patriotic. We Hoosiers left the" state
to which we were, and are yet, attach
ed by many ties. We are proud of
Indiuna, of its people, of its history, of
its development. We cannot review its
history without reflecting that we are
glad that we may claim that we too
are Hoosiers. Tet now we are as com
pletely loyal to our new adopted home
we are as truly Arizonians as ever
we were Hoosiers. It is this that
prompted me to note the readiness
with which the average American ex
patriates himself. Strictly, I suppose,
the term Is not applicable; for after
all true Americans regard the whole
American nation as their country
this allegiance Is to the whole as well
as to any particular part, and in a
strict sense it is not expatriation to
remove from the state of our nativity
to assume a new home anywhere with
in the union. Still, it is characteris
tically American. As his country is
broad, open and comprehensive, so too
are his mental attitudes, his ambition,
and his patriotism.
"While there is in the heart of every
one of us a loyal pride of Indiana,
there is, too, the equal pride of Ari
zona; and combining the two, and
equally of them both is our pride as
"I truly wish that I might be with
you on this happy occasion.
"Please accept, and convey to my
fellow Hoosiers my hearty greetings.
"Sincerely yours,
The Indian school band which was
seated on the stage followed with a
selection, and most inspiring music by
the organization was intersperced
throughout the remainder of the pro
gram, including national airs and Irish
melodies and popular . compositions
which found a warm place in the
hearts of the hearers. Mrs. E. T. Col
lings gave an excellent reading of a
poem by Alice Greenwood. Dr. A. M.
Gibbons a native of Ripley county de
livered an extemporaneous address. He
dwelled briefly on the greatness of In
diana as a commonwealth which had
once been his home, and then passed
to the vastness of the country of which
It is a. notable and historic subdivision.
He illustrated forcibly the magnificent
distances in the width and breath and
the scope of the United States, by the
incident In the life of an English, lec
turer who was booked to lecture from
New York to Frisco. He got as far
west 'as Chicago ani finding that he
was only beginning hU Journey can
celled his dates, saying he would never
attempt to talk in a country as big as
this one. and where there were so
many other people talking at once.
While the speaker said he held sacred
ly In memory his recollections of In
diana, he had found much more to ad
mire In the Western Empire, He con
trasted the Indiana mud and snow and
weather to the bright salubrious days
in the Salt River valley.

Miss Gilchrist recited a Riley poem,
entitled "I'm From Old Hancock, Too."
Rev. R. H. Wilkinson was introduced
and made some happy allusions to In
diana's history. His county, Franken
burg had furnished eight governors,
three United States senators, three
generals to the civil war and other
noteworthy statesmen and citizens.
Goodfellowship was the spirit of the
occasion. "I think that we Hoosiers
as a class are given to goodfellowship.
Indiana is a grand old state. Its early
immigrants were of the best blood of
Ohio, New England and other states.
There were two townships in my coun
ty which were settled by the Irishmen
from the north of Ireland. The char,
acter of the citizenship was the best.
There were Yankees in the western
part. Switzerland county was settled
by the Swiss. In Dubois the Germans
were the pioneers, and along the west,
em side from Terre Haute to old Vin
cenes were in the early days, the
French. The name Hoosier was not
originally a name to designate In
dianans. Natural conditions in Indiana
had much to do with forming the char
acter of the people. The soil helped to
make them great and self-reliant.
Chemical analysis shows the soil holds
an unusual amount of heat unit and
nourishing elements. A notable fact
is that the Indianans were the tallest
soldiers in the civil war. Indiana sent
into the field during the war a larger
per cent of its men as soldiers than
any other state. On the first call
5.000 men, the full quota, was made
up in two weeks." Dr. Wilkinson then
spoke of some of the pleasant past
times of the young Hoosiers in the
early days, the frolics, the husking
bees, the quilting parties and other old
fashioned pleasures participated in by
those who lived on "the banks of the
Wabash" and beyond.
One of the most enjoyable parts of
the program was the volunteer ad
dresses furnished by those most inspir
ed by the- occasion to speak their hon
est thoughts and sentiments. Rem
iniscesces of "the airly days." the
puncheon floor, i the trundle beds that
each helt two." and the "latch string
ahanging out o" the door," tog rollings
and neighborly social events of kindred
nature, were recounted and heard with
much interest. Among the volunteer
speakers were Mrs. E. T. Collings, Mrs.
Joseph Kibbey. Dr. Monical then
introduced Mrs. M. Craig a native of
Carroll county whose grandfather came
to Indiana in 1800. Her recollections
were most homely and appropriate,
harking back to the log cabin days
and the "rail-roads" through the prim
eval forests. The "rail-roads" were
constructed of hickory rails laid cross
ways of the bogs and mires and were
recommended by the speaker as being
better than pink pills for pale people.
n. u. t. Claire proved to be a na
tural humorist and said that he was
born in Indiana by preference. He
claimed though that he was no speak
er, he had hud no chance to learn, for
he was married young. His education
had been sadly neglected he said, or
rather his neglect had been sadly edu
But F. J. Murphy of South Bend
came forward to the defense of the
ladies and tossed several bouquets
along the suffrage line which were
much applauded. He said beauty had
never blossomed in the female of low
er life. You did not look for It in Hot
tentot women but in the men. not in
the Indian squaw but in the "stralght-as-an-arrow'
figure of the brave. But
in Christian races and civilization
beauty came to its full flower In worn
anhnod, to which Inriianu women were
no exeeptioa.
Mrs. Hunter gave a pleasing rendi
tion of a Riley favorite who is rightly
called the poet laureate of the people
Mrs. Stewart spoke -briefly along a
reminiscent line. Levi .Young who
later moved that the Indiana society
be made a permanent organization
drew a word picture of log-cabin days
in Indiana. This he was well able to
do for he had been born in a log cabin,
a fact of which' he was proud. He de
scribed the manner of construction of
the cabin and' its old fashioned and
Impoverished furnishings.
The program was concluded with a
national air by the Indian band, and
the day became a page in Arizona his
tory, which alt present will many times
recall with most happy remembrace.
