lant leader. William J. Bryan, for his
renowned canvass for the presidency
and for his great patriotism.
Wc consider the present state ad

worthless that ever afflicted any state,

We desire to express our earnest
approval of the war now leing car

our country and the Spanish dcsMts.
ami while wc are not desirous of
making it a war for acquisition of
territory, yet it is our opinion that
the lighting should not cease until the

that fact is accomplished.

and in detail up to the time of the
break. How the outcome was brought
alwut is interesting. At the close of
the 76th ballot Mercer county asked
for a reeess for consultation. In the
conference it was decided that Brock,
the Mercer county man. could lie
nominated only by a combination of
Mercer. Rock Island and Whiteside.
Kock Islaud gave Mercer to under
stand that at the proper time
she would go to Brock, but
the trouble was that the Bock
Island county delegation could not
deliver the goods contracted for. So
that after the 76th it was agreed that
the Mercer delegation should stick to
Brock for a few more ballots, when,
if Kock Island did not come into line
for him. each man would lie left free
to vote according to his personal
preference. Four more ballots were
taken and there was no sign that the
Rock Island delegation intended to
switch to Brock. Mr. Brock released
the Mercer county delegation from its
jdedge to him. and the change liegan
But the Mercer jicople gave the Kock
Island men another chance. On the
81st ballot Mercer gave one vote to
Prince. On the Sail she gave lnm

the Mercer county delegation gave up
all hope of securing more votes for
Brock, and 14 of the 16 delegates

These resolutions were adopted:

pride and gratitude the prosperous
condition of the country under a
republican national administration
and the tact that there has been a
magnificent revival of trade and in

also believe that this result is due to

of the adherence of the party to its
determination to maintain the money
of the country on a solid lwsis.
We fsjiecially desire to commend
the patriotism, wisdom, forliearance

that we are lighting for a cause that
is just and righteous, and that should
have the heartiest approval of the en

Resolved, That we commend the
zeal and readiness with which thi
people of the state of Illinois and of
the Tenth district, in common with
the whole country, have responded to
the call for troops, irrespective of sec
