falso and utterly without foundation.
That upon the oontrary wo luvor a

That in his efforts to thus booloud

most fertile and in all things tho
grandest state in the union Twenty
livo years ago sho was a wilderness, but
today is populated with as good, as
honest, as industrious, as liborty loving
a people as were over known. Among
her population is tho German-Ameri-oan,
Avho oamo hero seeking liberty,
and tho fact that they havo contributed
to sogreat anoxtont to tho prosperityof
our grea state shows that thoy aro
thoroughly identified with us.
The speaker then gavo a history of
the German and Anglo-Saxon races as
learned in youth from Roman litera
ture, and again congratulated them
upon their oituenship mnong tho
peoplo and in a country in which thu
honor of her men and tho virtue of
her women is cherished.
The typical oharaotcr of tho Gorman
is that ho is temperate, frugal, indus
trious and brave, and longing for that
liborty their forefathers longed for,
thoy came among us bclioviug thoy
could get that liberty hero.

masters in art, scionco and literature
