JAMES E, V, Addressed the Largest Meeting of Campaign at the Coliseum Last Evening.. No one will ever be able to say ih at tlio campaign of l!)04 closed in a listless fashion in Wayne coun ty. The closing meeting of the Re publicans at the Coliseum last night was a rousing one from start to fin ish. " Congressman James E. Watson, of (he sixth concessional district, ad dressed a large audience at the Col iseum and a more enthusiastic audi ence would inn he cared for. The address ;f Mri AYatsou was a won derfid j'ue anl he outlined; the his (ovy -of Uk -Republican party for years and compared it with the his tory of the Democrats for the same period. After the parade ' had disbanded last, evening the Coliseum rapidly filled up. The stage was filled with the vice presidents of the meeting and soon after S o'clock twelve members of the Newcastle glee club walked onto the stage and they re ceived a generous amount of ap plause. Mr. Watson followed , them and was accompanied by A. M. Gardner, chairman of. the county committee, and W. C. Converse, chairman of last evening's meeting. The glee club opened the .evening's program by giving a number of campaign dities. All of their songs were par odies on the popular songs of the day and they did not miss any. One of the amusing parts of this was the antics of Joe Landwer, in rendering a song entitled: ''Get on the Wa gon," Mr. Landwer made quite a hit with the audience. In a few wen put remarks Mr. Converse introduc ed Mr. Watson to the meeting. Mr. Watson said:" Stupendous in terests aic involved in elections. In every; election the country is arous ed. As each party seeks the support of the people the questions that arise in the minds of the people are: 'On what do you base yonr claims ?' The Republican party points to its past record and challenges the Democrat ic party to meet it on that issue. A party can not do everything to make a country great; it ean do a great deal in the development of a coun try. What have the Democrats ever done in the development of this country? Thev claim .that! we do not give God any credit for. the work he has done and that we always hap pen to be on the side of providence. If that is the cause for our success, why-do they not try 'to- use provi dence in their platforms. The uni form success of our party is thil it has always had the courage to d things that are right. In 1896 the national honor of this country was attacked by--the Bryan Democracy. They wished to' -put us on a level with Mexico and "'China on the money question. In 1900 the same party proposed that we should pull down the old Hag in the Philippines and forget Dewey and Lawton. The Democrats are advocating free trade.
