As soon as the election of Dr. Lynch was definitely established plans were made for a public demonstration in honor of the representative-elect by sev eral of his staunch supporters. An old one-1 orse buckboard carrying a pail at the end of a long pole was hitched to an automobile bearing two large signs with the word '"Lynch" printed thereon, and it was planned to drive through? the Main street and bring up at the Brooks House, where there would be speecb lnaking. On account of the unpropitious weather, it was decided to hold the af fair in the evening after supper. When that time arrived, as the weather was still unfavorable, the pa rade finally resolved itself into a truck load of men who drove through Main street cheering lustily for Dr. Lynch. There was some talk -on Main street this morning that if the weather is fair tonight, fi real parade may be staged with a band and i'verythhijj. At the time of going to press, however, it is im possible to state definitely whether this evening's plans will mature. KENNEDY ALMOST WINS. (Continued from Page One.) Congressman Frank L.
