his naval pride, while Billy Mason
waltzed with the strawberry blonde
while tho band played out. The old
leaguers and the young leaguers met,
mingled and parted, and as tbe
erenlng wore on they made more
merry and tbe fun wai fast and furi
ous. It waa a mighty carnival where
mirth reigned ru pre rue, and 'every
thing was put aside for the enjoy
ment of the hour.
Just before midnight those who
wished to compete for prizes were
lined up and a grand march arcund

SEEK TO SAVE PRINCE.
Contr.tfnwni Fraendc In Uenry Ounntr
The GeceFeo Republic and other
friends of Corgressman Prince in
Henry county are mak'rg an uphill
t.-fl! against lcjul bins to tave
PriDco in tho delegation to be
sent to the republican oongrassional
convention from Henry county. The
Kepablic prints the Gslesbarg Piain
dealer's disparaging comments on
Prince and ssys of Henry Emrich,
the editor that he "is a member of
the Teeth district republican congres
sional committee, and is also a dis
appointed mn because ho failed to
secure the Gilesburg postctiice, for
which he was en aspirant. J he lat
ter fact doubtless colors his views of
the situation to the prejudice of fair,
opun and above board politics. He
uggeslH trade and traffic, anything
iu fact to satisfy bispt rsonal grudge.
We regret this, for Emnch, under
normal condition, is a gcoi fellow.
Ordinarily ho would concede what
every other republican paper in
Kuot claims Hint that county is
unanimous for Prince." Tneu the
Republic seeks to overcome the
home feeling in Henry in favor
of Judge Hand, by seiking of
thd advantages of exporience. It

we turned Gen Hnderson down for
a Henry county man. and the Henry
county man for a Lee county man
and the Lee county man fir a White
side county man. and t Whiteside
county man for a Putnam county
man. Following Gen. Henderson we
were thrown into the present dis
trict with Gen. Poit, who had been
in congress several terms, and who,
had cot death intervened, would
probably be serving us yet. Then the
field was open to all aspirants.
There was a lively convention, and
(ieorge W. Prince, oor present mem
ber, won the bojoc. and is now serv
ing his se"ond term. Considering
his age and congressional experience,
we doubt if any representative from
any sta'e has ever de veloped mor;

st he can serve our peop'o h is a
Henry couuty mat, as was Gen. Hen
derson. There art probably many
men in the district who are his equal
in ability and oiher creditable attri
butes, but no one of them will suc
ceed him without a contest, and no
bndy can say wuj will be named if
every county trots out a candidate,
as promises to he iko case if Henry
enters the field with one. We be
lieve that on deliberation, Henry
county will arrotbRi its best inter
