Colou.l Dielt Thompson Remembered
The moment Chairman McKintay brought
down h» gavel, Chaancoy M. Depew was
on his feet to annonnee the eightv-thiro ;
birthday of Colonel Dick Thompson, of In

The convention congrutulatea Colone
Thompson and he was escorted to the chair
Mr. Thorajison said it made him yonnx ;
again to look about the convention. H« j
waa not half eighty-three, for he was stipm
lated by an undaunted Republican »pint
and by tho belief that that paçÇy was t<
the country for years and years t<

dent was cast for Henry Clay, that greai
protectionist, and hoped that the time
would come when tho country would vindi
cate the bij} which (turning to Mr. McKin J
ley) "bears your honored name, sir."
At this point the electric lights went out
leaving the speaker's figure hardly dp.tin
guishable in the blackness. Ttio lighti
blazed up again in a miniU©, and Mr

an eulogy of the McKinley bill. A reaolu
