The first annua) commencement of
the Triadelphia graded school was held
in the M. R. church nf that place on
Friday evening. The house was crowded
with what was said to have been the
largest audience It ever contained. A
ward drill preceded the exercises of the
graduating class. Eighteen young girls 1
of the Junior class, all dressed In white. :
marched down the aisle to the sound
of music and. taking position on the
stage, went through the evolutions of i
a drill, consisting of four series of move- ]
\ ments. keeping time to the music. j
! After the Juniors retired, the orches,
tra struck up a inareh and the gradu- I
I :?tlng class preceded and followed by i
y ?ung girl marshaJs. marched in slni
gl* flic to their places on the stag**.
The cla?f was composed of eleven :
young ladlns and one young gentle- |
I man. The Indies of the class were arrayed
In white, the young gentleman in
, th* conventions I Mark. Th?? clasa co|- I
! ors were orange and purple. On the platform
were seated the principal, with I

just what this meant, but Mr. Holllngsworfh.
one of Belmont county's prides,
stepped to the front and neatly announced
that If he was the person
meant he desired to say he was not a
candidate In any sense. He paid a high
compliment to Major Cunningham, of
Cadis, as tho man (or that place.
Here Hon. S. K. McLaughlin, of Harrison
county, took the floor and In a
great speech named Dr. S. II. McOavran.
Miles 8aunders took the'floor.and
protested agninnt the politicians ruling
against the voice of the people} they had
not been treated fairly;-he was one of
the people and the popple appealed, to
the convention to name a delegate from
this dlstrict.to tho national convention.
This was so heartily received that the
sixteen McOavran men withdrew. The
convention went on and before they got
back Belmont county cast her sixty-five
votes for Major Cunningham. Then Dr.
McOavran withdrew In a splendid
speech that was manly, and ho paid a
tribute to the victor in his own county.
The balance of the vote of the counties
was then taken without formality, and
the major was nominated by an unanimous
vote. AH was harmony at last,
and everybody cheered for everybody
else. It was a harmonious climax to
what threatened to be a bitter tight.
The committee reached the hall with
Captain Danford at this point, and
there were cries for a speech, but the
rink was hot and so were the people.
| Congressman Danford added to the enthusiasm
and interest that had been
| shown but a moment before with a brief
