ErRLXGFiELD, 111., May 4. One of the
largest conventions in the history of Illi

of representatives is entirely inadequate
for the accommodation of the persons in
attendance. Every seat on the floor and
all available standing room are occupied,
and yet duly accredited delegates are
unable to secure places. Gov. Fifer still
holds an easy lead for renomination.
Shortly after 2 the convention was
called to order by Hon. A. M. Jones,
chairman of the state central committee,
who introduced Congressman A.J. Hop
kins, of Aurora, as temporary chairman.
Hopkins was pleasantly re
ceived by .the convention. In his
address be scored Altgeld, the
democratic nominee for governor, com
mitted the republicans to protection and
sound currency, and concluded by pre
dicting a sweeping republican victory,
spoke of the diplomatic genius Blaine,
and declared tnat whoever is named at
Minneapolis will be the next president of
the United States. Blaine came in for
the lion's share of applause, and when
the chairman predicted that the candi -
date nominated at MinnearjoMs would
be electe-.l. there were loud cheers of
'and his name is Blaine, Blaine, Blaine!''
Chairman HopkR-s read a telegram
just received from Senator Cullom,
in which be said "the people of the
nation will confirm the republican
party in power in all branches of
the government and make sure and
permanent the cause of a free bal
lot, honest money, the protactive taiiff
system, and the energetic admin
istration of local and foreign affairs."
The rem lining temporary officers were
then selected: J. D. Puterbauzh, of
Peoria, secretary; W. L- Etton, of Win
nebago, and G. W. Horner, of Crawford,
assistant secretaries. The various com
mittees were selected and it was decided
to refer all ' resolutions and communica
tions affec.ing thv platform to the com
mittee without reading. A large number
of. them were so referred. Resolutions
were then adopted for adjournment until

to the ravages of grip last year the in

Kisses Saved Vp.
A traveling man, who was also the
head of a prosperous firm, promised his
newly wedded wife that he would give
her a dollar every time he kissed her.
and in that way she could save plenty of
money. Things went on in this way for
several years, and, as he made plenty of
money, he faithfully kept his promise,
Finally reverses came and the once pros
perous traveling man found that he
was virtually a pauper. He went home
to his wife and told her all. She, how
ever, did not seem to feel worried, and
he was somewhat surprised when she
asked him to take a ride with her that
afternoon, but he accepted her invita
Passing a large block on a well known
street she said, "That's mine." Soon
she came to a handsome flat and said,
"That's mine." Well, she showed him
several places with the same remark
until he began to be suspicious, and in
quired, "How in the deuce did you ac
cumulate so much wealth?" "Do you
remember the contract yon made when
we were first married!" she said. "Yes."
he replied, "I do." "Well, I invested it
and it has made us rich." The traveling
man hung his head and said nothing)
This was kept up for thirty minutes,
until his wife became alarmed, and she
asked, "What in the world is the matter,
and what are you thinking about?" He
said, "I was thinking of how rich we
would be if I had done all my kissing at
