THE FORTY -JVENTH STAR
(Vhile Mr. Downing was penning the last line of this poem, the
whistles began to blow announcing that statehood was an accom
plished fact.) . .
An imperial state is born!
Morning breaks a glorious morn! -After
more than twenty years,
Full of struggles, fraught with fears,
Spite of her imagined sins,
Proudly Arizona wins;
Comes in triumph to her own,
Wears the purple, mounts the throne!
There were "giants in her path,
Like the mighty one of Gath.
Base Detraction dragged her down,
Envy plucking at her gown;
But a slender shepherd took
Smooth, round pebbles from the brook;
Smote her foes between the eyes, '
Stripped False Friendship of disguise.
Grandly, as befits a queen,
Stately, smiling and serene
Gracious in her crowning hour,
Conscious of her sovereign power.
She is welcomed by her mates '
To the sisterhood of states - t
And goes forward, brave and free, '
To her splendid destiny:
One who ipves her ne'er forgets y
Any of her rich assets;
Wealth of forests, mountains, mines,
Fertile valleys, orchards, vines;
Herd and harvest, flock and fleece,
Marvelous its great increase;
Winter roses, orange trees,
Ruddy health in sun and breeze
Therefore, joyful people, shout!
Fling the starry banner out! r
From a stainless field of blue
Shines a Star, undimmed and new.
"tTntil now its brightest beams
Have illumined but our dreams;
Now 'tis neither faint, nor far
Hail the Forty-Seventh star!
Joy of Populaoce Expressed in a Monster Meeting
' on City Rail Plaza '
Music and Oratory Mingled With the Shouts of a
Wildly enthusiastic and thoroughly
non-partisan there was never a more
inspiring" spectacle In this city, never
an incident that spoke more eloquently
of an auspicious future, than the
monster outpouring of the people who
assembled on the city plaza last night,
(to give unrestrained utterance to the
Joy that possessed them In accepting
from the national government the
pure white robe of statehood In which
Arizona is so soon to array herself.
Though splendidly patriotic it was not
an occasion for the distribution Oi
laurel wreaths nor the elevation of
the leaders by the plaudits of the
populace. It was not the hour for any
man's decoration, but was one of those
too seldom events In the life of a
free people, when those In high places
reduce, themselves to the common level
and with one accord there ascends
to heaven tho thanksgiving of the
multitude for Its common heritage.
a- glorified shout of freedom In eman
cipation from the shackles they have
Well appreciating the arduous lab
ors' that have been performed by scor
es and . scores of public spirited citi
zens in the long drawn fight for
statehood, there was no mention of
any man or any set of men, no laudr
ing of " party and no reference to
questionable motives In any 'quarter.
Of-'all who have figured In the events
of the year tho only name mentioned
was that of the president, and that
was merely incidental to the fact of
his having signed the statehood reso
lution yesterday. It- was planned as
a strictly nonpartisan event to cele
brate an incident In which all may
equally rejoice and never was a plan
more perfectly adhered to. The.chair
man of the meeting was John P.
Ormo, a democrat and a member of
the late constitutional convention Of
the seven speakers four are republi
cans and "three are democrats, yet not
one of them referred to their parti
sanship nor that of any other man.
Other than the spirit of thanksgiving,
the speeches dwelt solely on the topic
of good citizenship and the faithful
discharge of tho duties accepted by
the responsibilities of statehood, that
the new star may ever shine with
growing effulgence on the blue field
it is so soon to adorn."
The First Indulgence
The pent up enthusiasm of twenty
years of hope was first liberated
about 2 o'clock In the afternoon when
the news came that President Taft
had signed the statehood resolution.
It was the expected that happened and
It happened with a vengeance. Com
mitteeman O'Malley had made good.
Every steam whistle In the city and
every bell instantly set up a wild and
discordant chorus that was main
tained for a 'full hour. Sounds of a
most dismal and harrowing nature in
themselves, to ears properly attuned
to receive them, were welcomed as an
anthem of surpassing harmony. Men
who have ceased to bo demonstrative
even on 'the fourth of July, jiltched
their voices to the weird ' strain and
bellowed In their glee.
There had been no general ar
rangements for decorating, but as
soon as the noise begun huge flngs
began to bo unfurled and the people
of Phoenix at once realized that now
and henceforth forever, Arizona Is in
and of the United States. The city
hall and court house flew the banner
'of the union and all stores and pri
vate householders who were possessed
of the colors, propmtly displayed them.
"One of the most unique decorations
of the city was a window of the New
York store where a skilled decorator
had spent hours In preparing a beau
tlful scene. Draped from the celling
were numerous flags and underneath
two large ones, sparkling in tho
glamor of- its electric light construc
tion, was a huge star. Across its face
was the word "Arizona." Above and
below It were the words "the baby
sister," forming the rest of a suggestive
The general decorations of the city
wore for the most part confined' to
arranging for the evening Jollification
The band stand on the city plaza was
literally swathed In bunting. The
north entrance to the city hall was
utilized as a speaking stand and was
trimmed In the national colors while
the entrance to the building which
formed the background was tastefully
decorated with flags and the national
Gathering of the Jubilant.
Pursuant to the announcement In
yesterday's newspapers with the com
ing of twilight the people began to
"assemble on the plaza for the enjoyment
oi.ine speccnes wnicn were to uuer
their united sentiments, for the time
"had arrived in the history of the city
.when for once the people were ac
tually unanimous In voice and feeling.
Xo procession or parade had been
planned. Xone was necesary. All
that was needed was a big rousing ex
pression, with all the accompaniment
of music and red fire, and tills was
forthcoming. The Pioneer band took
its place in the band stand at an early
hour and until the festivities began
and alternating between the speeches
later, it discoursed the music of Its
jolliest repertoire. The red fire com
mittee did Its work well and not
only illuminated ,the grounds In ad
vance of the meeting but during Its
progress from time to time the burn
ing chemicals cast a halo of glory
over the scene. Xo prettier sight
could be conjured than the faces of
the people illuminated by a scene
of happiness within, seen In the red
glow of the torches as their radiance
fell between the eye and the sombre
green of the foliage of the plaza
above which the smoke drifted away
in clouds, while Phoenix, hitherto
torn by dissensions and strife, reveled
in the sensuous odors of the pipe -of
Promptly at S o'clock the speakers
took their places on the stand with
John P. Orme In the chair. He an
nounced that the committee was great
1y disappointed at the absence of
GovernoARIchard E. Sloan who had
been expected as one of the leading
speakers. The governor went to Pres
cott a few days ago and had bee,n
asked by telegraph to return for the
celebration. He did not receive the
message in time to catch the Sunday
night train and yesterday's train
would not arrive until after the meet
ing, hence his unavoidable absence.
As the next best thing, however, the
governor had telegraphed to the cele
brat ion committee, tho following mes
sage which George Purdy Billiard was
asked to read:
Governor Sloan's Sentiments.
"I regret exceedingly that it is Im
possible 'for mc to be present at the
mqetlng tonight to celebrate the pas
sage and signing of the Statehood
Resolution. Since statehood seems at
last to be an assured fact. I trust that
for a timo at least, past differences
may be forgotten and that the ut
most "good will may prevail.
"An era ot splendid growth and
prosperity, awaits us of we shall only
approve ourselves wise enough to
avail ourselves of the oportunitles
statehood will present.
"In this connection, permit me to
suggest that self government ?s worth
nothing unless it shall mean economy,
efficiency and honesty In public af
fairs and unless it shall be administ
ered with such fairness to all clas
ses and upon such common-sense
principles of justice as will attract
hlthcrward the honest, the industrious,
the enterprising and the home-loving
and none others. Such a government
can be achieved and maintained if
good citizens will only have the cour
age and determination to fight for it."

Prescott, Ariz., Aug. 21 (Special.)
The news this afternoon that the

.uicnard E. Sloan, who for the first
time since his return from Washlnton
last fall spoke anent the statehood

I am not here tonight In am- of
ficial capacity. I am here as one of
jou to express my profound satisfac
tion that after twenty years' effort
statehood for Arizona is a sure fact.
o matter what has happened in the
past, tiie press news of this nf tor-
noon is of such importance as to
warrant us coming together tonight
to celebrate this happy evont.
It brings a great opportunity that
we have wished and hoped for manv
years. An era of splendid crnwthaml
prosperity awaits us if we make.cood
use of our opportunities. It is not
necessary for me to sav how n-o
faiiouiu ustf this opportunity but pverv
true hearted Arizonian shall see to
it, that our new state bo so mannered
that It will attract the onternrfsinir
ami nome-iovlng and none other.
It Is within our power to nonloct
this" golden opportunity and to mar
the future beauty, of this common
wealth. I believe that we have here
the actual and potential assets to
make this commonwealth av crroat
success. But things do not work out
tnemseives; every citizen must do his
full duty according to thi llirhf
God gives him to do that duty, so
tnat we shall obtain in Arizona a
government which shall not alone be
our boast but the boast of our chil
dren and our children's children."
The meeting was entirely non
partisan; two of the speakers were
democrats and two, republicans.
Ashurst declined to attend the meet

Cunnlff was here and Is said to have
been asked but refused to go on the

ference to him how it had been done.
He further suggested that the legis
lature make August 21 an annual
state holiday as on Twenty-first
we outgrew the Infancy of territorial
ity and became a state.
Hon. Robert E. Morrison colli thnt
prosperity had come with statehood
as within a few minutes of the re
ceipt of tho message the supervisors
of lavapal county had reduced tho
tax rate to two dollars on the hun
dred. He paid a glowing tribute to
the efforts of Ralph H. Cameron and
the crowd howled with delight.

oust Dr. Harvoy W. Wiley, hlef of
the bureau of chemistry, .closed today
with the testimony af Secretary of
Agriculture Wilson. The committee
wil hold an executive session to
morrow to consider its rpport.
Many time today the testimony of
Wilson condemned Wiley's demeanor
charging that he was over-sensitive
because his findings as to pure
foods and drugs, were not accepted as
final, but occasionally he referred to
the referee of ths board or which Dr.
Ira Remsen was chairman -As- he
was leaving jthe stand Wilson de
clared that he 'would "rather resign
his job than go. through another bu
The witness was -not cross ex
amined by counsel for Wiley. Secre
tary Wilson said that he became sus
picious of the employment of Dr. H.
H. Rusby of New York, the storm
center of the investigation, when
shown a letter said to have been
written by Dr. Kebler, of the bureau
of chemistry, telling' Rusby ' that it
was all tho same whether he worked
one day or many. Wilson said he is
now investigating the report that
Rusby accepted fees from drug im
porters for opinions regarding sam
ples referred to him, and then had
passed on the drugs later as a repre
sentative of the government."
The secretary said an, inspector re
ported that he had discovered one
such instance. The witness then de
clared that "Wiley seemingly wants
to put me In a hole about, the corn
It Is in this case that Wiley testi
fied that three cabinet officers over
ruled the decision "oftho pure food
board as to whether a substance
could rightfully be labelled "glucose"
or "corn syrup"' after "the Heclsion
had gone Into print.
"Dr. Wiley has forgotten a' con

Interesting, yes, very."
Then lie told hpw the three cab

be called "corn syrup " . Representa

done out of regard for the views of

'it might be well for. thosa-under a
man to listen to him or leave the
Wilson then denounced as "rad
ical" the recommendation of Wiley
that food containing alum, be pro

passed on' the matter. The secretary
referred to President Taft's decision
that manufacturers 6f bleached flour
be permitted to continue until . tho
courts had passed on the matter.
"If we took the action "recommend

is no question of the deleterious ef

John Ball Osborne, ' thief of the
