Some persons did not have the
privilege of hearing the splendid
speech of Professor Walter S. Da

Liberty Pell, so the Palladium gives
it in full, - as follows:
"The parents and friends pres

I am sure, for addressing these re
marks on the history and the mean

children, and particularly the
smaller children.
"We have come here this after
noon to enjoy one of the greatest
privileges of our lives. "We have
ome to look upon the Old Liberty
Bell, which ,fi't proclaimed our
country's independence. In speak
ing to the school children of Mas
sachusetts, Wendell Phillips said
that when a school boy, his eyes
looked upon General Lafayette on

the years come and go, one of your
most treasured memories will be that

glad tidings that all men are created

"There is nothing for me to say
on the Senatorial question, I be

way today, 'unless it be to repeat
that I am a candidate and to add
.that I have opened headquarters
here in Boom 430 and that I shall be
glad to meet my friends' here at- any

My relations with the trther candi
dates have been most pleasant, and
I trust they may continue the same.
They have as, much right to become
candidates as I had, and if any one
of them can get more votes than I
can I shall be ready to take' off my
hat to him and accept the result
good-humoredly. "
