Preceding Parade of Mili tary and Veterans. a t Lincoln riny was quite generally cel ebrated in Phoenix yesterday, the banks and most offices being closed and the stores very largely observing a half holiday. A formal celebration under tho auspices of John W. Dwen Post, G. A. R., consisting of a street parade and exercises of oratory and music, was participated or witnessed by most of the people of the city. The parade was under the general direction of Colonel J. H. McClintock marshal of the day, and moved about 10 o'clock along Washington 'street west to the Klks theater. The escort consisted of the Indian school band, Companies A and B, N. G. A., the Normal cadet company and the Indian school cadet company. Following the military organizations came the vet erans, of whom there was a good turn out, considering their rapidly dimin ishing numbers. At the theater the parade broke ranks, the Women's Re lief Corps meeting the marchers there, then proceeding to positions of honor in the theater building. The veterans, officers of the occasion, speakers and singers and corps filled the stage, and the auditorium was filled with the populace. The back of the stage was entirely concealed by an enormous American flag, the speaker's stand was draped in the colors and against it leaned magnificent large picture of the mar tyred president. P. P. Kyle, repre senting the Grand Army, presided over the meeting. Chaplain Scott offered an invoca tion. Miss Anna Monihan read quite impressively Lincoln's Gettysburg speech, and the audience sang "Amer ica. A collection was taken up to defray the expenses of the exercises, and . Mrs. T. Francisco . Hughes sang "The Star Spangled Banner" mid the waving of flags by the members of the Relief Corps. Her rendition was most enthusing. General Archibald J. Simpson, the orator of the day, next delivered an address on Abraham Lin coln. That was followed by a few re marks by Frank Howard, Sr., a gentle man now eighty-four years old, who was introduced by the chairman as one who had the honor of having been present at the convention that first nominated Lincoln for president. The exercises ended by the benediction be ing pronounced by Rev. Wilkinson. The address of General Sampson was woven around the Bkelotonlzed history of the great war president, mentioning each mile post in his ca reer as it was passed and elaborating on the effect on the nation and the generation to follow; of the modest, unostentatious, yet wise and thought ful action of the pure-minded man whom all the world reveres todav.

Mrs. Lilur Wilson, Prop. . 2C3 E. Wash St Phone Black 2031. commanded nint attention. It Is here with given in full: ' ' ' General Sampson's Address. . Abraham Lincoln, the first, was born in Massachusetts, January 13, 16&8. His descendant, Abraham Lincoln, the seventh, was born in Hardin county, Kentucky, February 12, 1908, of one of America's grandest mothers. The Lln colns moved to Spencer county, In diana, in 1817 and to Macon county. Illinois in 1830. Thomas Lincoln the father, and an estimable citizen, died in Cole county, Illinois, In 1851. Abraham Lincoln married Mary Todd at Springfield, 111., November 4, 1842. Of this union there were born four children, all dead except Robert Todd. Abraham Lincoln died by the assassin's bullet April 15, 1865. Such is the condensed outline his tory of the one in whose memory ex. ercises are today being held, both on land and sea, the world ever. Of but few who have lived and died ouly the outline is needed. Not so In this case. His birth place was a humble cabin in one of the most undesirable parts of Kentucky The little babe, rocked In a sugar trough, gave no better promise of the future than millions of others. No friend came to greet the mother and babe; In fact, it is doubt ful if he had much of a welcome from anyone; first it was with difficulty that the parents were able to "make both ends meet" in the battle for bread. Lincoln told friends. In later years. that many a night, as he lay on his hard pallet, he looked at the laughing stars through holes in the roof. And yet this dilapidated cabin of the fron tiersman was the birth place and home of one who was born to be a leader of men; an able, faithful, hon est ruler; the man that put his faith in God in the days of battle who led him and our nation into aglorious peace! a man honored, loved, believed in, fully trusted in, in the time when he held so important a place In the nation, and who now and forever will hold one of the most Important places in the history, not alone of our own nation, but of the whole world. At the age of 8 years he was taken to the wilds of Spencer county, Indi ana, where the lack of the comforts of life was nearly the same as In Ken tucky. Hard work, plain food, coarse clothes, poor pay, little life outside the home were his. He early became a faithful reader. He read everything he could get, but as money was scarce his supply was. limited. One book he had which he read .and re-read, time and again; the book of books; trust in which is the anchor of all our power, our glory, our stability; the safe guide of youth and counsellor of manhood the Bible. One of the guards at - the White House, during the early days of war, testified that many and many a time when he came on duty at 8 o'clock a. m., he found the president reading the Bible. The truth is he had more con fidence and trust In it during those trying days than' In a"y of his counsel lors. When one of tftem remarked, "I hope the Lord will be on our side," Lincoln replied, "yhat concerns me most is that we be on the Lord's side." In his boyhood constant labor de manded his time from early morn till late at nigtu. No electric light or gas lamp, no not even'k friendly ' tallow dip aided him in these night readings. Before the bright Wickory fire. In the big, old-fashioned fire place, he stretched himelf ouj ofi: the-fioor and read bv the hour.' He was a genuine backwoods boy. Awkward. as awkward couid be. Such a life as "he led was not calculated to make him graceful. Neither did his physical make-up con tribute to elegance 'in manners. His hands were very large and his arms so long it was difficult ,to find a place for them to rest, while his long legs gave him a ludicrous motion when moving. and when sitting he kept crossing and re-crossing them until it seemed as if he were really trying to 'tie them in a bow-knot. His angular appearance and homely face were the subjects of frequent remarks. His home-spun clothes. Ill-fitted to his lean, lank form, were better suited to the occupation of, one driving an ox team, such as he followed for many months, rather than for appearance in the social circle. In a social gathering, even or tne oacK- woods, he would almost have felt "out of place." What do you think of the early pros pects of this subject? You have seen him in Kentucky, and in Indiana. Two mile stones in his history are past and we find him nearlng tne tniru, at tne age of 21, the pilot of a "prairie schoon er" bound for Macon county, Illinois. This "prairie schooner" was drawn by two yoke of oxen. "Buck" and "Ber ry" and "Jim" and "Jerry" got many a prod on that long Journey from the youthful pilot. Word bad reached them that the prairis of Illinois fur nished a better prospect for life than the forests of Indiana, so into the promised land they went. The third mile stone in his life had been reached. On his advent into the state that later and ever will be to honor his memory, he came in no. Pull man palace sleeper; not carrying with him a diploma from any Institution of earning, not even the possessor of a good1 common school education; not dressed in the latest style of the art. such as would give him an entre in 1820. into the "society of the MO" of the prairies of Illinois. But, thank God, he did bring with him something that was better than all these. He brought with him a rug ged constitution and a clear brain. uninjured by the "fast life" that comes to too many; he brought with him a firm resolve to win in the battle of life; he brought with him a pure, hon est, sympathetic heart; he brought with him a firm resolve to be true to himself, true to his adopted stale, true to his fellowmen and true to his God. No wonder was it, with such a founda tion of character, such a purpose to be and to do, that in a few years he be came known beyond his own bailiwick. He had passed another mile stone In life's Journey. He had secured some what of a reputation as a lawyer In riding the circuit." that Is, going with the circuit judge from county to coun- to"'plck up" some business. .' In this he was successful. And in another re- pect these tripe were of benefit to him. It was when he and the other members of the bar were gathered in the hotels of these country towns, to pend the long evenings, that he se cured the reputation that followed him all through I'fe as one of the most ready and ;i;.t in illustrating every point In argument in conversation with That reminds me," etc. His gaunt, , quaint, awkward make-up added much to the . effectiveness of stories told While others were convulsed in laugh ter he seldom laughed aloud on such occasions, but almost constantly smiled. It was this, in part, that gave effectiveness to his "reminders," many of which, It is believed, he Improvised on the spur of the moment. But we can not dwell on this part of his life. Is full of Interest. We pass to the next mile stone, when we find him helping to make the laws of his adopted state and later, as a repre sentative of that state in the national congress. These things were not to his taste nor crowned with brilliant sue cess. - . We read on the next mile stone an account of that most wonderful de bate In the history of our nation, be tween him and Senator Douglas, the "Rail Splitter" and- the "Little Giant. The great debate between Webster and Hayne in the United State's sen ate was tame in comparison with this one.
