tirilgnrd II. J. BuddJ devoted to Spring,
field, auclal, industrial and political, from
which we make the following extracts;
Tbe other day I dropped down upon thli
acmewbat tamoui city ot almost 30,000 In
babllanti, aitualeii in the rich Had Rlrer Val
ley, in tbe central part oi Oblo. Tbe apaclous
pub'ic iquare to the middle ol tbe city, a few
yards from tbe Union Depot, rnounded with
tbe hammer and saw. On tbls iq are was
being erected the large convention ball, in
wbicb is to be held the Oblo Republican
State Convention on tbe lttb ol June.
I found the people of Springfield very
much elated over tbe fact that tbey bad se
cured tbe coming State Convention, to be
held in this city. Heretofore this important
conrentlon baa always been held in some
one of the larger cities Inthe State, and re
cently it baa been thought that Col ambus,
tbe capital, was, tbe only proper place to bold
the convention. When tbe time came lor the
Central GotnmllWa to select a placa for tbe
convention tbe Oulumbui people made no el
fort to secure the sam, supposing that tbe
convention would le tbatrs by a 'sort of
divide right, which Dobody ,would have tbe
baf'iibood loqutetlooi but a committee! ol
wide-awake Republicans and Influential boil
ness men of Springfield weal over I o Columbia
on au early train tbe day.the choice wai.io l
made by tne .Central Committer, andeutae
quently took tke.coiuuiiiteai by.iaiorm wilb
their demand that the convemfon be held in
SptlnKfitld.- The idea was almost ridiculed,
as It was known that' Spriogleld bad nJ edi
fice large, enough to accommodate such a
bodyiol men as -the couieullon,cll together.
Tbe.SpnnKfleld commllUe promised to build
a hall and pay oil expenses ol tbe convention.
Tola offer was at once accepted by, the Central
Commuter; The ball Is now-completed and
Is about 100 by 160 feet in dimensions, and
of tbe proper height, and will accommodate
over 4,000 people. It baa arisen almost as If

CanvasilDgwtbe prospects 'of.tbe.a,iou
candidates, the correspondent has tbe follow
ing to say about General Keller:
Bi-Sptakar V. Warren Kelfer Is considered
by, some to'.have a remote possibility ot tbe
noralqation. Many of tbe best friends ol
Oeneral Kelfer, however, feel that bis nomi
nation at tbls lima would be injudicious, as
It would not only arouse recently allayed an
tagonisms IdSlde the .party, but it mlgJjt also
result In, hit permanently laying aside ahould
be by any poVslbllitybe defeated. It .is pos
sible that such feeling may be engendered in
tbe convention between tbeadvocatesjol the
two P'ain candidates Judge Foraljer and
Oeneral Beatty that a candidate ttjot now
prominently spoken ol ma arise at'lbe last
moment, Hon. A. 8. Bashnell It soietlmes

has ever been expressed by any reliable body

a candidate for Congress today be would un.
doubtedly secure, the vote of many who re
cently opposed his renominatlon. The'ie-

with marvelous good spirit. He saldi to

Of the jtiowih of Springfield tbe Reis.er
From 1870 to 1880 Springfield has doubled
her population. Tbe growth of tbe city bas
not been owing to any particular natural ad
vantages. Tbe face ot tbe country about tbe
city is level or slightly billy. There la a small
but rapidly diminishing water power, whleb
has never ol late years been utlllz.d to any
extent. It is true Springfield's railway fa
cilities are now excellent, but her prosperity
has not been due t- these railway facilities;
on tbe other band the railway facilities have
been the outgrowth of berrnrosoeritr.' In a
'word, and this is a matter. for consideration;
me marvelous growtn ana ntjsiness prosperity
of Spiingfield bu .been, tbe;' result, almost
wholly, ot the Innate energy,; push, industry,
and intelligence ol her business men. Tbe
OLampion City, although , an ,. Inland town
wltb few natural advantages, and wltb none
of those surroundings likely to make a great
city, has, by her inherent powers, asserted
herself and become a source ol political and
Industrial iuflueoce throughout the State and
throughout tbe Natlou. Springfield is no
place for drones or' Idle man. Her older
men and capitalists either work themselves
or keep their capital working, and ber
yonoger men, ber pride and ber stteogib,
are found at tbe helm of maoy of tbe most
prosperous Institution in the city,
' Nothing shows so conclusively tbo relative
position ol Springfield a a manufacturing
