man did not furnish two or three
sleeping cars free to the members of

that would enable the peuple to ride

Holland a prediction that the repub-

the ward, and challenges any other
ward to equal the record that will be
made. The Union is having a hard
time attempting to patch up the
breaches that have grown out of the
convention proceedings, but votes
are not made through wagers
or blulT. anil the reports from oth
