Gentlemen, I arcerit the nomination.
At the close of the address there was an
cther demonstration, and It was only with gr*at
ClSlTTJlty that the crowd was restrained from
rushing by the barriers in Its d»slre to congratu
late the speaker. When the cheering had sub
eided Senator Ma.by introduced M. Lir.n Bruce,
of New-York, the nominee for lieutenant" Gov
ernor, who said:
Mr. Chairman ar.-l Gentlemen: I thank the Re
publicans of the State for the honor they hay»»
conferred in nominating me for the office of Lieu
tenant Governor, and through you I extend my
hearty appreciation If elected, my standard 0"?
rondunt shall be my oath of office. I shall recoij
r.!z* no other authority. I shall seek no approval
save that of the people when I account to them
for my tru«»t. To be associated with Prank Way
land : ~KK'.v* Is a signs honor; he is no experi
ment; his cnaracter and career yuarantee a fear
1-ES, independent progressive administration. Ir.
htm are exemplified Integrity of purpose, wt^dotr
in council, uprightness in conduct, and mental and
moral stability. Our piatform Is the record of our
party, -a confidence we SUbßlt our cause tt>
the people.
Mr. Bruce was followed by Judge Julius ii.
Mayer, who spoke even more briefly. His sar
castic reference to the attitude of Attorney Gen
eral Cunneen and his pledge, if elected, not to
wait until the heat of a campaign before takir.g
even unofficial recognition of alleged wrongdoing
was greeted with prolonged cheering. He said:
I am eommi?sion«d by my associates to express
on their behalf, and on my own. profound appre
ciation of th" great honor that nan come to us in
the nominations received from the Republican con
vention at Saratoga. Some already have had the
opportunity of nerving tn»ir State Controller Kel
sev. Secretary of State O'Brien -•i State Engineer
Van Al*tyn» have served their State honestly and
wei;. Their integrity and fidelity to d'lty is the be.it
pledge that can be riven on'their behalf at this
time B6 place. As for myself, if elected. I shall
expect the value of my opinion as Attorney Gen
eral and my sincerity shall be tested by legal ac
tions brun and successfully terminated, and not
by the belated Issuance of lawyers' briefs, mislead
ing In purpose, printed in .the heat of a political
campaign. Mr. Wa'.!>?r.rneier and myself al!k«. new
to a - -*: • number, hope to have the ability to serv*
the p«ople of the State with that same fidelity ex
hibited by our neighbor and the next Governor of
the Empire State. Frank Waylaai Higgins.
"vVhen the last of the speaking was over the
crowd could no longer be restrained- Climbinj
or fences and tables, breaking through shrubbery
and vines, it descended onfhe candidate. Many
hands were outstretched, and. walking down to
the lowest step of the piazza, the candidate ac
cepted the congratulations of his neighbors and
friends. For ha!* an hour he stood there shak
ing hande. State leaders who grasped his hand
were shouldered down the line by men in work
ing clothes. The evidence not merely of per
eonal esteem, but of personal Joy. shown by this
entirely unexpected part of the celebration wig
striking. When It was finished the candidate,
breathless and wearing his collar hanging limp,
walked back to the piazza to accept the con
gratulations of his associates and of the polit
ical leaders who were here.
But tie local celebration was not yet over.
Once more the two bands started off. and the
•ong lines of citizens marched back and forth
aJyng the broad main street, cheering ag£ in and
fcfiain. At sunset the fireworks began, followed
» UtUe later by a. torchlirht procession and tM .
other mass meeting-, and It was lrag after mid
night when the celebration ended.
The celebration was marked by a single unfor
tunate incident. A local Jeweller whose politics
la not known left bis store unmatched, while
he crossed the street to hear the afternoon
speech of Senator Dep*w. It was probably the
largest price ever paid to hear the Junior Don
ator speak, for when he returned $3,000 in dia
monds were missing, but even the jeweller's woe
failed to excite sympathy in the face of the en
thusiasm, and even the "local policemen returned
to duty with a sigh.
The night celebration was marked by still
stronger evidences of the widespread popular
rejoicing of the people of ' Lieutenant Governor
Kiggins's home city at his nomination. The
main street was strung with electric lamps on
either side for more than a mile. Many build
ings were illuminated, and the small boys of
every age were provided with Roman candles
and fireworks. Through this Illumination the
voters of this city and surrounding counties
marched in a brilliant torchlight procession.
There w»re scores of mounted torch bearers,
and delegations from adjoining counties carrying
appropriate banners. Cowbells, tin horns and
every sor * of noisy instrument and two local
band's were pressed into service. The streets
were lined with hundreds of cheering people,
and. amid a pandemonium of rockets, bombs
and firecrackers, the enthusiasm of the Repub
licans found full expression. Beside the uproar
«nd illumination of the night celebration even a
Tammany Hail notification tit a local ticket
would be tame.
Depezv, Bruce and Woodruff Speak
at Mass Meeting.
Clear. N. Y. Oct.. 4.— The mass meeting in th^
circus tent on the city square which preceded the
notification ceremony was marked by the eri
tnusiastic welcome which greeted sad frequently
interrupted Senator Depcw as he discussed th
caropaig.-.. a.r.d the royal greeting to the Ex-Ueu
tenant Governor. Timothy L. Woodruff, who spoke
briefly but in glowing terms of Lieutenant Gov
ernor Higjrlr.s. Congressman E. B. VreeJano" pr
sided at the mass meeting, and created a general
laugh by presenting Senator Depew as "a KepuD
li"an who began to make speeches at twenty-one,
aad ha# continued for twenty years sinre."
M. Linn Bruce also spoke briefly, and his praise
of Lieutenant Governor Higgins was warmly ep
Senator :■•-.■- eulogized Lieutenant Governor

was "one of remarks. Sic success, and truly Amer

Senator Depew was foilowe«l tv M Liza Bruce.
who said:
Theodore Rooseveft was not the choice of the
politicians. It 1.1 not saying too much that he was
nominated in spite >i£ tne politiciaaa. He was not
the choir** of ttv truats or of the gr««at corpora
tions. His nomination was effected in spue of tnetr
opposition. He wan not the choice of any class or
of any section. His nomination wan made tc re
sponse to tne universal cemand of tae r&Ek ami tlie
of his party in every State and throughout the
xrhoie country. He was neither unknown r.or un-
Triad. for twenty year* he has bren m public Ufa.
Bis views upon a" grrat questions were known to
the people who demaruied his nomination.
Who nominated Jud«e Fark«r for the Presi

nomination was directly brought abou; by David
B. Hill. He was far from being the. unanimous
choice of his own party tn his own Sta *. lias
vi«ws upon rational questions were entirely un
known and undiscoyerabie. and it was only by the
masterly manipulation of Mr. HUL, Mr. Sheehan.
Mr. MeCarren and Mr. Belmont that bis nomina
tion was made possible.
Ex-Ue-jtenar.t Governor Woodruff said:
The record cf Mr. Higgin* is known to you and tn
me, and ie one which should commend Itself to all
the citizens of the State, irrespective of party
affiliations. As State Senator from t.-.is district and
as Lieutenant Governor he has rendered conspicu
ous service to the State of New-York. It is not
fair to him or to the Republican party, or for that
matter to the people oi the State at large, to be~
cloud the Issue of hi» splendid services by attacks
upon any one else. .
Thin year we look confidently to a still c -. :l r
majority than that of 19no. and in return, while we
anno from our Democratic end of the State send
up t^ sou a majority, we will gend to you for the
national ticket arid al«"u for the State ticket, for
M - Hiffßins and for Bruce and Mayer who are
arnoiff :h« best citlzers of the great riry of New-

which will not only bo welcome to you but win

Judg« L. L. Shedden. cf Clinton County, who is
condactmr the campaign us the district of John F.
O'Brien, said: "There is n->t any dis-iatiaf action of
Republicans on the northern tier. W**U give th«
State and national ticket a big majority in Clinton
County outside of Flattsburg. and carry that Dem
ocratic city into the bargain. There's no boltir.g
of Republicans, but we »-• going to have more

A similar situation was reported In St. Lawrence

just wait until our county is heard from,"
"We shall give our usual majority. " said Senates
John Raines, of Canandaigua. "and more if this
mudslinging campaign continues. ! never knew
such a campaign to fail to react. W« shall In
crease our majority a little, a considerable thing
when you consider what has happened in the last
Jew years in the way of Republican majorities in
Western New- York."
"Broone will do as usual for State and national
tickets," said Colonel George w Dunn-
Scores of other leaders expressed a slxr.Car senti
ment. There was a note of buoyant confidence evi
