At the final session Friday of the
convention, Hon. John W. Kern of
Indiana was nominated for vica
president by acclamation. His

The Banquet given Wednesday
evening by the office force, foremen
and bosses, of the Mengel Box Com

every way. The banquet was given
in Mr. Walker's front yard. The
yard was made as light as day with
gas lights, and the table, half as
long as the yard, was a good sight.
Barbecued mutton and pork, lots of
other things to eat and good things
to drink, made the occasion one to
be well remembered. After supper,
speeches were made by Col. Walker,
J. W. Roney, Bob Wolsifer, Allison
Tyler, John Dillon, Sr., Capt. Ma.

rendered. The occasion in every
respect, was a success, and will
long be remembered by those who
