except installation of officers, which
took place on Thursday, when the offi
cers of the vRriooa bodies, elected and
appointed, were installed w;ta the en

observed by the different branches.
Daring the eassion the different
bodies received the reoresentatives of
numerous Bister jurisdictions some
twenty odd Slaws and Territories being
represented besides representatives for
Canada, Nova Sootia, Guatemala in
Central America and from Mexico.

When the regaUr toasts bad been
disposed of there was a call for im

The most notable epaochea of the

Republicans Celebrate Mark Manna's
Reeent Victory .
Ncgal.es, Ariz., Nov. 7sb, 1S97.
In honor of the R ipublioan victory in
the State of Ohio, and more especially
in honor of tbe triumph in that state
of Senator M. A. Hanna, the McKmley
club of this plaa kapt open house , to
night, holding a roost enooeeafol re
oeption, where over two hundred of the
leading people from both sides, of the
international line were entertained in
most hospitable manner. The doors of
the Nogales Athletic club were thrown
open at 7:30 o'clock. From that time
until about four o'olook the next morn
ing the festivities were, kept np without
even the ressmblanoe of a let-up.
The stage was embowered ia flowers
and Amerioan flags. It presented a
beautiful Eight and of itself waa an In

geniality that seemed to posses ail those

instead of against us.
It was the year of a people impatient
for a eight of the great Amerioan cation
blossoming forth onca again ia all the
glory of a bullion dollar country leading
tbe civilizad world ia every avenue of
human aotivity.
Daring the campaign just closed in
the "off year" States tbe personality of
Ssnator Hsnna has been interjected
into the antl-Rspublioan canvasses
everywhere, while tbe State of Ohio has
experienced tbe most heated political
contest in tbe history of the country.
From William J. Bryan down, every
man aod thing that oonld assist in de
feating Senator Hanna was pressed into
service. And all because as Chair
man of the National Republican Com
m it tee in 1S96 he directed the brilliant
battle that gave us William McKinley
for .President of tbe United States,
That they did not suooeed proves that
Sanator Hanna is immeasurably greater
than be appears when seen throogh op
position spectacles. Their failure ia the
oause of our celebration here this even
The treatmaat aooorded Sanator
Hanna doss not differ, except in de
gree, from that whioh other men f ani
ons in Rpublioju circles have experi
enced in the past. Previous to 1SSS
Matthew Staaley Qusy enjoyed
an unsullied reputation. He
stood, with other eminent Republi
cans, high io the .'estimation of his fel
low men. The entire nation, regardless
of politioal divisions, proclaimed him
an honored oitizan of a grand common
wealth, a commanding figure in all that
party. Since then I have learned be
a tiger bas aa many lives na a oat J
oiuiuauj as alive vgniu lou liU Willi U
Again, from the teachings of
Hanna we learn that m man, doicg al
his power to icsore the snooess of
party, while be, equally with otbef
has the right to ask yet has no jJ
grounds npon whioh to demand re we)
for hie services. We find herb a pa
man who will aay, "I have stood io t
rront ranks oi the KepuDIloan paij
ever einoe its inception; I have nevl
received any federal recognition; I ba
made application to the President
an appointment, backed by the ba
recommendations that tbe count
oould afford and my olaima have bee.
overlooked or ignored," and he wil
oomplain of iajnetioe. Has euoh a on
just grounds of complaint? It ia ex id

to insure tne oontiouea aominatloa q
bis party, acting on the conviction tbar
by so doing he is advanolog tbe true its
tereeta of humanity, he has simply don
hie duty; and duty should be performed
irrespective of rewards.
Daring the national and State earn
paigoa we saw Mr. Hanna in the mide
of conflicting foroes, working with im
pertnrbable good temper, exhanetlee
patience, unoeasing effort, uniting net
rogenoua elements aod -combining tn
almost irreoonollable into a bond o
union acd strength that Insured eno-t

forefathers withbeid from them that
knowledge we now so amply share,

took place and th- prog-ess of knowl

the gloom of igooranoe and barbarism.

Wbarever the arrs flourish, there it

The universal principles of the Art

tbe nature of our institutions that in

was made considering tbe short time
that had been devoted to the prepara
tion of the programme.
Two orchestras furnished tbe music
for the evening. The regular band un
der the leadership)! Professor Gutier
rez treated the andienoe to some very
choice selections, while the Ladies'
iiianaolin club rendered sorc very
pratty pieces that were heartily ap
plauded. At nine o'clock tbe formal exaroises
were initiated by P.-asidant Cheno
weth. He extended a warm welcome
to the gues'.s of the McKinley club
whioh organization, he said, bad re
garded it befitting that some demon
stration should be mada by it in recog
nition of the Rspublicau victory in Ohio
which had, been the real battle ground
of the "off year" elections. Especially
should all good Republicans rejoice that
Senator Hanna had won the legislature
of the Backeye State against the com
bination of all the hostile elements that
were lined up to briag about bis defeat.
H:s politioal enemies bad neves forgiv
en him for the masterly oampatgn
whioh he waged last year for the Re
publican party and they were" bent npon
humiliating him before tbe world by de
feating him for Senator. He bad how-
everwon over all opposition and in his
victory there was abundant oauae for
the Republican party every where to
celebrate the event.
President Caenoweth concluded ic a
storm of applaus ncd introdaoed Hon.
3. J. Daok worth, who spoke bs follows:
Mr. President, Fellow Citizens of Ne
gates: la the popular movemant of last year
which resulted in plaoieg Willibm Mc
Kinley in tha Presidsntal chair, the
Pima County MoKicley Club occupied
an honored acd honorable .station. We
are here this evening to join it in cele
brating an event fraught with the
greatest importance to the country in
whioh we live and bearing more or lees
on every branch of the national ad
ministration. The great victory of William Mo
Kinley at St. Louis in 1896 over the
combined forces of all tbe political
machines in America was due, as was
wall said by the distinguished leader
who presided over the National Repub
lican Convention of that year, to the
tact that 1896 was a year of the peo
ple. Yes, indeed. This was the year ot
people who believed that the oiouds of
doubt and fear and gloom that hovered
ever us should be dispelled and vanish
forever from Amerioan eo:1 befcre the
sunlight of American industries re
vived. It was the year of tbe people who be
lieved that American capital should be
employed in American oommerce and
prodaotive enterprises instead ot being
at reat in tbe darkasss of safe deposit
It was tbe year of tbe people who be
lievrd that American lubor should ba
employed in American factories earning
tbe daily wage that it deserved and of
whioh it caver should have been de
pr vrd.
I; w.-.a the year of tbs paople who be-l-evt-d
tbtit the national treasury should
eogged in ensealling instead of in
increasing tta National debt.
1 was the year of th peo'e who be-
great State of Pennsylvania, a patriotlo
Amerioan, loyal in every sense to bis
country and its institutions, worthy in
all respects of the confidence and
esteem ot all good Americans.
Mr. President, yonr olub is oertainly
deserving ot commendation for the
eminently appropriate aotion it has
taken In oelebrating the victory aohiev
ed in the Buokeye State. Sterling Re
publican organization that it is it could
hardly have done otherwise; nothing
less was to be expected of It. Senator
Hanna, in the oanvass juBt dosed, rep
resented tbe National Republican party,
He etocd for. its principles. Ha battled
for its rights. He presohed Its gospel
He defended its honor. Against him
were arrayed all the'elements that reject
Rapublioan teachings, that spurn Re
publican dootrines, that give battle to
Republican polloies, tbassek to hinder
and embarrass Rapublioan administra
tions. He bas oonquered them all
He bas swept them off the face of tbe
earth. The star of Republicanism still
twinkles merrily a fall orb, shedding
luster and brillianoy, throughout the
world of American confidence in Re
publioan statesmanship proclaiming
the perpetuity and stability of Ameri
can institutions. (Cbeere).
Following tbe address musio, appro
priate to the oooasion, was rendered by
the orchestra, whereupon Judge Eb
Williams, Ithe old warhorse of the Mc
Kinley Olub, was introdused and spoke
in part as follows, the audiecoe inter
rupting him time and again with hearty
and enthusiastic applause:
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentle-
men: Tonight, away out here in Noga
les, in tbe Tarritory of Arizona, on the
far-eff ragged edge of national political
reoognition, we, the Rjpubltoans of the
and thus united we will ia future con
flicts bear aloft the banner ot oat party
and plant it on the walls of euooees
This I know we will ao Bnd so, Mr.
Chairman, send to Mt. Hanna out
hearty graftings, ooai.!.sdVwita the s
snranoe that when Arizona shall be ad
mitted as a State there will be two
more right-line Rapublioan Senators
added to the Congress of the United
The Ladles' Orchestra again played
one of Its sweet eeleo lions, after whioh
President Chenoweth delivered tha
concluding speech of thfl evening, ex
tending the olub's .invitation to all
present to attecd the- grand ball with
which the festivities were to be closed.
When the grand march was played It
transpired that the large hall ot tbe
Athletio olub, all of whioh had been
oleared and prepared for the dancers,
was utterly insufficient to accommodate
tbe orowd. There was the largest at
tendance at this ball ever B6en in this
section of Arizona.
The festivities lasted no til 4 o'olook
in tbe morning. At 11 o'olock refresh
ments were served to all present. The
entire programme was carried oot tn
the most complete and creditable zsan--ner.
Much praise has been bestowed
upon tbe MoKinley Club for the excel
lent entertainment provided by It.

victory of our party in tbe State of Ohio
and to show our appreciation of the
services to tbe party ot tbe Honorable
Mark Hanna, to whose efforts that vic
tory is mainly du9 and who, in the at
tack made upon the party .lines, was tbe

While we are so assembled we thank
the fair ladies of oor town who grace
our assembly by their presence and we
extend a hearty welcome to the men of

We learn that victory is the result ot
Indefatigable labor and that above all
things we should never underestimate
the power of our political enemies; that
no indication of weakness must be ac
cepted as conclusive ot their inability
to struggle. I remember that during
the last campaign, in a harangue whioh
I delivered in the opera bouse at Tuo
son, among'other things I said: "That
great bark, the Damooratio party,
freighted with illusions, lies stranded
on tbe rent of its own errors acd eacb
wave that rolls in npon it from the
great ooaan of American thought car
ries away some mast, some bulwark,
6oma spar, to be bashed against the
rooks of publio detestation acd carrtad
baok by tbe undertow of derision and
oontempt and scattered so far and so
wide that all tbe wreckers of the Dam
ooratio party will never be able to gath
er enough of its shattered fragments to
build a catamaran on which a man
could paddle across the muddy
puddle of a town election into tho office
of PoundmaBter." Aod when I said that
I believed it. Toe Damooratio party
was disrupted, torn in two, a house
divided agaicBt itself and my conclusion
would have been true, given a like con
dition of things, of any organisation ct
