SALTER DEAD AF: TER A LONG ILLNESS AT HIS HOME ON N- 5TH His Long and Useful Career Comes to an End Entire Life Spent Here. Ed Salter is dead. This sentence conveys sad tidings to many a house hold in Richmond, where Mr. Salter was known by almost every man, woman and child in the community, and by Avhom he was universally lov ed and respected. After a siege of suffering from a dropsical trouble, the end came peacefully yesterday as the quiet shadows of the afternoon were passing into night. The deceased was a familiar figure in Richmond. He was of the type of men that are fast passing away. He was honest, industrious, kind and affectionate. To do one a favor was one of his greatest pleasures. He seemed to take great delight in being of service to others besides himself and family, and many and many a man in this city today feels deeply obligated to the deceased for many kindnesses rendered. He was socia ble, and his cheery "good morning' ' whether it was morning or evening, will be missed by hosts of people. His services at the Odd Fellows' hall were invaluable, and it will be a long time before another Ed Salter will be found to fill the places made vacant by his death Edward J.

OIDED BY THE MANAGEMENT OF THE MUSICAL FESTIVAL SEASON TICKETS RESERVED Tomorrow Morning at the Coliseum A Word to Ticket Holders. Those of our own citizens who have not already secured their season tick- ets and who want good seats tor the May Music Festival should remember two or three things. First of all, the chorus and orchestra takes up so much room that the visual seating ca- paeity of the coliseum is reduced by nearly five hundred, so the amount of available room is not by any means unlimited. Then the reports from agents indicate that the attend- anee from out of town will be even larger than was anticipated, Season tickets are cheaper than single admissions for those who can attend only two out of the three concerts and give the holders two days in advance for selection of seats. The details of the plan adopt ed for the reservation of seats has al ready been published and will be fully explained tomorrow morning. Oiaate. - - ; ;? THE REPUBLICAN CAL1PAIGH KEY NOTE IS SOUNDED TODAY ACHIEVEMENTS AND FAILURES OF POLITICAL PARTIES MOST ELOQUENTLY PRESENTED BY The Honorable James E. Cllatson . , " v : Permanent Chairman of the Greatest Republican State Convention Ever ' ..',V' Held In Indiana. ': HON. JAES E. WATSON. (Special to the Palladium.) Indianapolis, Ind. April 26. The Republican state convention met to-, day. It will complete its work tomor row. Delegates at large to the Chicago convention are: Senators Fairbanks and Beveridge, Governor Durbin and State Chairman Goodrich. Alternate Delegates H. C. Starr, of Wayne county; Erasfus F. Mc Clure, Howard Maxwell, of Rush, and W. P. Adams, of Portland.' The convention instructed for Roosevelt. At Senator Fairbank's re quest the convention did not indorse him for vice-president. The electors at large agreed upon are George A. Cunningham, Evansville, and Joseph D. Oliver. . . The sixth district members of the ! organization are: On Rules Will Cumback, Decatur. Credentials Fred J. Ferris, Laf ayette. Resolutions H. C. Starr, Rich mond. Vice President Joshua Davis, Union County. Assistant Secretary Walter Ran dall, Shelbv. The convention is one of the, larg est in the history of Republican con ventions in Indiana, and also one of the most harmonious. The meeting was called to order by State Chairman Goodrich. Hon. James E. Watson who was made permanent chairman of the convention, spoke as follows: We are on the event of a great po litical struggle. Vital issues are at stake, stupendous interests are involv ed, the country will be thoroughly aroused and wre shall be expected to prove our right to win. When each party presents itself to the electorate and. seeks support the questions that will naturally arise in the mind of each intelligent voter are: Upon what do you base your claims? WhaT have you done to deserve recognition ? What have you achieved to merit success? For answer to these ques tions the Republican party gladly ap peals to the past and challenges the Democracv to meet it on that issue. And that is the only rational way in which this momentous problem can be solved; for, "by their fruits ye shall know them." The Biblican standard of merit applies with equal force to parties and to men. An or ganization, like and individual, must either stand or fall by its record. The only just way of judging the future of a party is by its past. The only real .way to tell what a party will do is tr.see what that party has done. Promises for the future amount to nothing unless promises in the past have been, redeemed, unless they are backed up by a record of faithful performance. And how proud we are to meet this test. . . .; The Republican Party Proud of Its Achievements, .; -; -.ft! Standing amidst its :nnparalleJdr achievements of a half century the Republican party triumphantly sur veys the past and courageously 'faces the future. Upon its waving1 banners are inscribed the most splendid victo ries of civilization and there are also recorded there resolutions of her roic. endeavor and high emprise. The brightest pages of human history were written by the hands of its vo taries, and we find full inspiration for the conflicts of the future by a review of its marvelous past. Therefore, we this day triumphantly, aye, defiantly invoke the truth of history, knowing full well what the inevitable answer will be. ; . ; Gentlemen, a governmental policy cannot do everything that needs must be done to make a country great, but it can do much. It can do much to develop its natural resources, to di versify its industries, to stimulate ge nius, to give profitable investment to capital, to fully and remuneratively employ labor, to more equally dis tribute the fruits of toil, to fix the standard of citizenship, to more gen erally disseminate happiness among the people, to incorporate the highest ideals in its institutions and embody the dearest principles in its laws. These things this party, of ours has ever done. While it may not be re sponsible for all the marvelous achi evements of the last four and f orty years, 'achievements that challenge historical parallel, yet it is neverthe less true that all that progress has occurred under the beneficial opera tion of its policies and the fearless application of its principles to gov- ' eminent. I The onlv time that tri nmnlinl nrn- cession down the years has been sus pended was Avhen the operations of those policies were temporarily inter fered with, and an indifferent people intrusted the machinery of govern ment to the nerveless and incompe tent hands of a helpless Democracy. And every presidential campaign we are' compelled to temporarily ab andon this great work of commercial conquest - and industrial achievement and overcome the Democratic party, in order that we may continue unin terruptedly this work of progress and patriotism for the next four years. And that is the great enterprise upon which we are embarking here today. And, gentemen, it may be remarked at the outset, as a reason for the uni form success of its policies, that the Republican party has always had the courage to do right, the courage of a sublime conviction, the courage to in corporate the highest ideals in its platforms and apply the loftiest prin ciples in its laws. When the reins of government were grasped by the kindly and patient hand of Abraham Lincoln, it was the spirit of justice that inspired him to heroic action. Then in the shadow of our flag, there were 4,000,000 of our fellow-men in chains, 4,000,000 of hu man beings with manacles upon their minds and with fetters upon their feet, and they cried out for freedom. The Republican party heard the piercing cry and had the moral cour age to face that awful problem. Upon a thousand gory fields of strife, slav ery was shot to death by the million guns of the Union, and that question was forever settled in our land. The flag went down at Summer, but it rose again at Appomattox, uplifting in its rise a race from bondage and a nation to triumphant hope. It was also believed by a hostile party that this nation was but a loose confederacy, a rope of sand, that it might be dissolved at the pleasure of any one of its members, and that neither the Constitution nor the laws had. any binding force upon any State that did not willingly consent to obey thenu: The Republican party heroic- ally met and i ' solved that problem,' State- sovereignty a -piered to death by a million bayonets of the Republic,' and that question, too, was (Continued on Second Page.)
