It wals soundly abused by ov eryibody. The only .way to correct these ovlls is to have two strong par ties in thjs State- It cannot bo done by allowing boiup luirty to run tWngs by default.

Senator Bradley and his friends made a hard fight for him to get on the delegation to the Chicago Conven tion. His speech before the state con vention was one of the ablest cam paign efforts of his life. Although he went down ln defeat by not being sent as a delegate 'to the National Convention, Senator Bradley moved on to Chicago and opened up headquarters, which proved to be a drawing card at the convention. The Senator's last important work was the preparation and delivery of a speech agalnBt the repeal of Panama free tolls, Ho went into the subject exhaustively. The speech was one of the longest delivered at the present session of Congress. -It abounded with citations and was considered a legal masterpiece. It , was a subject on which he ,bd strong convictions and many Senators believed that the labor expended la connection with it may be partly reseeatible for his death, al though a complication of diseases and a recent fallfrom a trolley iaf, hasten ed the end. Senator Bradley married, la 1817, MUs Margaret Robertson. Djptean, of Lancaster, and besides the widow, is survived by one daughter, Mrs. 'Chris tine South, of Frankfort. ..
