Hagerstown, Ind., October 23 (Spl) Hagerstown did herself proud in en tertaining Congressman James Wat son tonight and the "Whip" more than justified the welcome that was given him.

Eight hundred persons, most ly voters crowded into the hVl while many tried to hear by standing on the steps leading into it.

Congress man Watson made a rousing good speech in which he dwelt on the rec ord of the party and especiallly the work of the last Congress. The "speak er took a hard rap at Bryan for try ing to steal the glory for what Roose velt had done. Congressman Watson expressed himself, as being heartily In accord with the President and pled ped himself to help carry out the leg islation wanted by Roosevelt during the next session of Congress. This statement was greeted by a great out Iriirst. Throughout his speech Mr. Wat eon was interrupted by applause and he received a splendid ovation at the close.
