tribute to tho policies of tho Republi
can party, and to the leaders respon
sible for tho exposition of these poli
cies. Gradually hut adroitly he led
up to his eulogy of tho Indiana
statesman. Dolliver's peroration was

"While ho has not sought to con
strain tho Judgment of tho conven

American people, and I do not doubt
that his heart has been touched' by
tho volunteer expression of universal
good will, which already has choson

for tho Republican party of tho United
States. Tho ofilco has sought tho
