Grant county triends would never have
just cause to regret that they had so
signally honored him.

short speeches, one of the best being
made by John Koelle, ot Ilevillo, a for
mer democrat, who told how he had all
his life voted the democratic ticket and

the friends ot the American people
rather than the foreigner.
The convention was one of the most
enthusiastic republican love foasts that
has been held in the county, and the
feeling that prevaded the convention
presages the political victory that will
place William McKinley in the presiden
tial chair, and that tbe republicans of
