Oifl Unnamed Association of the
etf fcitants came back from
"ernity yesterday to announce
ohUw a sPeclal committee of the
cnamber of commerce that the present
iown of Phoenix will be 50 years old
October 20. Glory be!
The matter of an appropriate cele
bration is now before the special com
aaite alUlouSh no plan3 have been
outlined, everything being in a tenta
tive state awaiting public opinion and
expressions from old timers and others
Members of the unnamed fraternity
came back as they had lived, sturdy,
strong-, honest, wearing the same
clothes they had worn 50 years ago
With nothing of the Rip Van Winkle
type about them. They held a meet
ing In the head of the publicity man
of the chamber of commerce. it was
a well attended meeting and they de
cided above all alse that the revival of
the old days should be made as real
istic as possible.
Jack Swilling, noted frontiersman
and builder of the first canal, was
chairman of the meeting, and Darrell
Duppa, who named the town, was the
secretary. Among the most promi
nent members of the "Unnamed" pres
ent were Captain Hancock; Moore and
Grlffen. Major McKinney, J T. T
Smith and AI Dove.
The meeting did not open with
prayer. Chairman Swilling said
simply: "Gentlemen, we are here today,
in the name of Phoenix, to give thanks,
recall old days and lift a cup of water
la the absence of anything stronger."
How Present Town Was Named
That noted mass meeting of settlers
October 20, 1870. was recalled at the
meeting yesterday. At this " mass
meeting Duppa, Moore and Griffin
were delegated a committee to look
for a new townsite. The meeting
was held at the old town of Phoenix
below what is now Joint Head and
which Duppa had named Phoenix be
cause it was built upon the ruins of an
ancient pueblo, and in consequence
arose from its ashes, so to speak.
Captain Hancock at yesterday's
meeting said that at that mass meet
ing he urged that the new town of
Phoenix be situated at a point about
a mile north of Rio Salado near the
. Swilling ditch in the midst of the most
promising area of farming land. Cap
tain Hancock, retired Indian fighter
from Fort McDowell and an engineer
of foresight, recommended as the best
place for the townsite the north half
of section 8, township 1 north, range 3
east. After a discussion, he said yes
terday, the settlers decided in favor of
his proposal.
The committee on townsite hunting,
namely, Duppa, Moore and Griffin,
authorized the captain to stake out
the town.
Why Phoenix Was Moved
Chairman Swilling told why it was
necessary to move the town from the
old ruins. He said the people in those
days wanted more elbow room. He
said the town on the ruins had a ten
dency to close them in and that fur
thermore the ditch had its intake near
the town, where no population was
needed, and that the farmers were
scattered pretty rmich below the town.
He said this made it inconvenient
for the farmers and settlers in general,
as they wanted their town more cen
trally located.
Duppa, who admitted yesterday he
was somewhat of a poet, said he op
posed moving the town because of its
pre-historic significance. Chairman
Swilling replied by saying: "And you
would have let us climb over those
adobe nightmares until this day had
not Maior Mr.Kinnpv onmnlained that
his saloon was losing business because
so many of his customers fell over the
ruins and almost broke their neck."
Duppa smiled and said: "But they
made me chairman of the committee
to select a new townsite."
Swilling answered: "They had to in
order to save your own neck."
Major McKinney who has been sit
ting silently in one corner of the pub
licity man's head whipped out his
handkerchief as if about to polish
glasses and said: "Gentlemen, what
will you have"
An Imaginary Bar
Members of the Unnamed arose from
v all parts of the head and approached
an imaginary bar. Chairman Swilling
rapped for order and reminded mem
bers that the town had gone dry.
Major McKinney lapsed -into a state
of watchful waiting In hrs corner ana
the meeting proceeded.
The discussion now was centered on
the new town and many little things
were brought out which now stand as
pillars of the City or Phoenix.
Mr. Chairman." said Member Grif
fin "will Al Dove tell about our first
city jail wnicii blwu wucio m ..na
tional Bank of Arizona now stands?"
The chairman nodded to Mr. Dove, who
did not nod back. But he said: "You
needn't single me out to tell that story,
for without mentioning names I can
see many here who knew that jail as
well as I did."
Whisperings about the assembly re
vealed the allegation that Mr. Dove
got drunk one night in the 70s ana
was put in "jail," which consisted of
a log of wood, a chain and leg irons.
Mr. Dove, it appears, got dry along to
ward midnight and carried the jail
over- to the nearest saloon, got several
bracers, then carried the jail back to
its original status and went to sleep.
The old flour mill then came up.
Members told of its establishment by
W. B. Hellings and how it later devel
oped into what is now known as the
Valley flour mills. It was related
that the nearest railroad was 1.000
miles away, and supplies had to be
freighted from St. Louis on the east or
from California on the west. The
stories members of the Unnamed told
about the language used by the
freighters were so hot that they would
burn the paper if set down here.
"Mule skinning wasn't in it." said Mr.
Dove. I
Prices Then And Now
Member Moore presented a state
ment on prices in the 70's and now.
The statement, which "was unani
mously adopted, reads:
"Flour sold for $10 gold a hundred
pounds, which is about the same as it
is today with railroads. Bacon sold
for $1 a pound, which is a little more
than it is today and about what it was
during the world war. "Whiskey sold
for 25 cents a drink, which is about
5,000 per cent cheaper than it is to
day. Sugar dragged 1,000 miles
amidst violent swearing sold for 20
cents a pound as against 25 and 30
cents todas. with railroads."
"Indians never got within shooting
distance of Phoenix," said Old Crow
Williams, ex-army scout and saloon
orator, when asked by the chair to say
something about Indians for the ben
efit of movie fans of today. He con
tinued: "If old Geronimo had ever
crossed the river in the direction of
Phoenix, it wouldn't have needed a
big army with a dozen generals to
capture him, which later was the case.
Don't you remember, Mr. Chairman,
we had 400 population when the town
was moved, counting kids and ladles.
Well, out of that 400 there must have
been 250 boys old enouh to fight, and
men. That 250 looked like 25.000 to
old Geronimo. so he stuck to his
Apache trail and kept on going south
and west looking for Yaquis and
The meeting brought out develop
ment when Chairman Swilling said:
"How can we give thanks enough this
day that Phoenix has so prospered?
We boys of the half century now gone
did not think we were going to be the
beginning. Our little ditch, our glor
ious hardships, our social life, our
quarrels, all have been cemented to
gether for the upbuilding of a city a
little city today, a great city not far
in the future. The anniversary should
conform to every phase of life in the
days of '70, with the present happily
commingled with the past. Major
McKinney, "a toast from your best
stock. Drink heartily, gentlemen."
