RATIFICATION SATURDAY NIGHT.
MEETING TO ARRANGE FOR THE
Nearly Five Hundred Torches Will Be
in Line Bicycle Turnout Promises
to Bo a Feature.
The chairmen and officers of the Republican
precinct clubs met at the
Chamber of Commerce last night with
the general committee of arrangements
to make final arrangements for the
grand Republican ratification to be
held on Saturday evening.
The Republican clubs and precinct
clubs will gather at the drill shed at
6:30 Saturday evening. In the meantime,
each precinct chairman will arrange
for floats and banners to gU'e
eclat to the parade. It is expected that
450 torches will be in line. The expenses
for floats and transparencies
will be borne by the precinct clubs.
What promises to be one of the
pleasing features of the parade will be
the bicycle corps. Every Republican
in town who can't ride a bicycle, that
is well, is daily practicing to master
the two-wheel steed. There are few
Republicans in town who do not own
bicycles. During tho four years administration
of President McKlnley
such a wave of prosperity has struck
the land that it has extended to far-off
Hawaii. And even Democrats hero,
oppressed by stagnation prior to Mc-Kinley's
inauguration, own bicycles,
too. The Republicans are making
strenuous efforts to have the Democratic
bicyclists turn out Saturday
The bicyclists promise to make an
imposing feature of the paratle. Some
of the wheels; in fact, many, will be
adorned with Chinese lanterns.
There promises to be' music galore.
The Government band will turn out
and Will C. King will have his drum
corps in line. W. J. Coelho will organize
an independent and impromptu
band for the occasion.
Briefly summed up, there will be a
ratification Saturday night with lots
of red fire, ordinary fire and fiery eloquence.

interesting reading. In the most elegant
legal phraseology Thompson tells
what he found. Among the receipts
enumerated under "principal" is cash

words about the $4,550 which appears
In the inventory as having been deposited
In the bank of Bishop, & Co.

of Bishop & Co., I was informed that
on October 23, IS37, tho executor drew
a check ror $S50, and on October SS
of the same year he drew another
check for J 1.000. I was also Informed
that this deposit was nude as an open,
and that since the last check was drawn
there has not been another deposit
made on account of the estate of Joseph

upon the face of the accounts it appears
that the executor made no Investment

"In all the evidence beforo me nothing
was adduced as to any demands
having been made by,any of tho devisees
for the immediate payment of
the several legacies as by will pro-vided.'-
Aftermrn tioning legacies paid, the

making the Inquiries. I had on many
occasions requested the executor to exhibit

books of accounts, but he has failed
to do so."
