SPLENDID AUDIENCE Greets Gorernor-EIect Chas. H. Brongh Monday Night. Maslerfut Address Popularly Receired. One of the most representative audi ences that has ever arsembled to hear a public speaker, was presented Mon day night in the Lancaster court house to listen to the convincing, arguments. oratory and entertainment furnished by Governer elect, Chas. H. llrough, of Arkansas. Gov. llrough is a fluent speaker; he is a convincing speaker, and it may be said to his credit, one of the fairest speakers his large and ap preciative audience ever iisteued to, The issues of the national campaign were discussed by him in a most mas terful manner. He did not criticise his opponents in politics, but rather gave them the credit of being as honest in their;belief as is he himself. He did not indulge in billingsgate but chose the tho most refined and courteous terms when referring to republican leaders and voters. Gov, llrough is an orator of no mean ability, and his audience wus charmed and delighted with his speech. Many times he would drift off into flights of oratory and word-paint' ing that were beautiful, and effective in their application. "My wife is Kentuckian" he said, "and all that I am, or will ever be, is due to her.' He paid many handsome and deserved compliments to the town of Lancaster and Garrard county, adding that he felt sure that the voters would recog nize the worth of their present chief executive and the great service he has done for the country at large. He pre. dieted the election of President Wilson by a big majority. Gov. llrough has just returned from an extended trip through the north making campaign speeches in the in terest of the present administration. He said that the popularity of Mr. WII son was increasing dally, even tli states of Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin would come Into the Democratic fold in the November election. The visit of Gov. llrough will be long remembered by those who were fortu nate enough to hear him Monday night. He Is a genial, wholesoul scholarly gentleman whs is well posted on the political Questions of the day. He left Monday night to All a series of en' gagements throughout central Ken' lucky. His tour will unquestionably count many votes for Mr. Wilson and S3 1 99 I S T 0 Y E S LORENC! Make Your Home Comfortable. A No. 53 Florence Heating Stove will heat four and five rooms.
