Arousrrl Kiitha?ta*m,
One of the but meeting* ever held In
the pavilion at Briber:'* Carder,
held by Triadoiphia district Republican*
last night. There was enthusiasm
to burn, though the Register, a* usual,
will have "frost" In title morning's account
of the rally. Speeches were made
by Hon. H. W. Harmcr, of Clarksburg;
Mr. M. H. Willi*, of Olenvllle; Hon. W.
H. C. Curt If, ef West Liberty; Messrs.
Harry W. McLure and C. II. Haonlng,
of this city, and Mr. John Arbons, Jr.,
of Pleasant Valle?-.
Selbert'a pavilion Is an Ideal place for
meetings, and It wn3 decorated In great
shape last night by Colonel "Charley"
Selbcrt. The roaring lire In a large
atnve was quite Inviting on a chilly
night, and the n^ellng wan a nnc one
in all respects. It wr.a called to order by
Mr. Fred C. Bade, Republican committeeman
for TrJadelphla district, and
County Clerk RIchut-d Robertson was
voted to the chair.
The conduct of the war which appcnr*
Co furnish a straw for tho drowning
Democrats to grasp at. was fflven due
attention by all the speakers, and Re.
publicans are only too willing to discuss
it, tcr e? Mr, Willis Inquired, If the
Democrat intend to chiir*c the Republicans
with miseries of the war they
should also give the Republicans the
glories as well. But. thf; speakers Ifii
silted, the war was American, not Re?
publican or liemocratlc.
The prlnclpnl speakers scheduled
were Messrs. Arben*. Willis and Harfntr,
but none spoke st length, und
whc-o the? roncjuaud mere wore cries
for Harrv McLtjrc, who was In the audience.
Mr. McLuro opened by telling
a Hood story on Homer Smith, and the
elm tree near th?? lialtlmore /t Ohio

for Trladelphla district.
The speech of the evening was made
l>y Mr. Curtla, of Liberty dlatrlct. and
It nraa well received Indeed. Mr. Curtla
(aid that the Democratic speaker* at
Wedneaday sight's meeting at the
Opera Hooae claimed there was but one
Issue?the war. They asld It had been
mismanaged and that tbe war might
make America cut loose from paat traditions.

it was imperative, in view or the war.
that the should.
But at to mismanagement ot the
war, Mr. Curtis sold such a question
hould never have been rslsed (or political
capital, and speaking along this
line he became particularly eloquent
Bis hearers were thrilled at his wordpalntlng*
of the glorious achievements
at Manila and Santiago, and the pavilion
rafters rang at Intervals with enthusiastic
applause. Those who howl
that the war was mismanaged, said the
West Liberty orator, were not those
who answered the call In the "sixties"
or In the spring of '98. The howlers
were not the soldlera who wore the blue
or gray, nor were they the aona of the
civil war veterans, who stood shoulder
to shoulder In '98 cementing the ties
broken by their sires when titer left
homes to march beneath the 3tars and

Confederacy. Grand old "Joe" Wheeler?

government for the hardships of the

Incurred in any struggle In, the world's

Mr. Curtlh was tendered an ovation
when lie concluded his magnificent addresK.
He was followed "by Circuit
Court Clerk Hennlng, who urged the

Last Night and Thi? Morning That ,
Amused Many People;
There was a caJce walk of iho.genuine
character at the Democratic hall. South j
Main street, met nigni. n waw u -warm
baby." Eight couples entered the contest
"fo* dat cake," and they really grave
a splendid exhibition, and put In the
nhade many cake walkers In colored |
minstrel companies. There were many
white people In the large audience and
they enjoyed the affair hugely.
The cake walk was late in starting, it
being after midnight when the master
of ceremonies cried out: "Lead on Macduff."
Then it wad that the crowd on
'tl\e benches, lining the four walls, held
their breath. Out stepped the leader,
cane In hand, and his first evolution
proved him a "peach." The leader was
Sam Ramsey, who hustles unwashed
linen for the WheeWng Laundry. Sam
was t'he star attraction. He was graceful
as a fawn, and tie "cut the coiffers"
in great style.
He led the couples out from the bunch
one at a time, arid when they had circled
the room they were led to ih(.Jr
original station, while the next in line j
proceeded to do the grand. After all had
