Proceedings of the Republican Mass
Meeting at Orange City, Oct. 9.
In obedience to tbe call of the Orange
City Republican Executive Committee a
large crowd of ladies and gentlemen col
lected at tbe Deyannan bouse to listen to
speeches on the political issue of the day
by the Hon. Horatio Bisbee and Dr. W. W.
Hicks. The meeting was called to order
by Mr. J. E. Stillman who nominated Dr.
Hammond chairman of the meeting: Mo
tion carried unanimously.
On motion Geo. H. Parker was elected
secretary.
The chairman then introduced the Hon.
Horatio Bisbee who, in a speech of about
two hours duration, held the undivided
attention of the iarge and intelligent audi
ence and was frequently applauded, He
presented the financial question in a very
able manner and explained his,votes on
that question in congress. He also ex
plained how the present Democratic state
government have managed to make a
slight reduction in taxation by reducing
the pay of jurors, and witnesses, and refus
ing them any mileage, thereby substitut
ing a special tax on the individual for a
general one which bore equally on all.
After the conclusion ot his address, the
chairman introduced Dr. W. W. Hicks who
for about an hour kept the audience iu
almost a continual roar of laughter and
applause, at his sharp and witty hits at the
acts and policy of the democratic party.
At the conclusion of this address Mr. J. E.
Stillman moved that a vote ot thanks be
tendered to the distinguished speakers for
their able address, Unanimously carried.
All the republicans present went away
highly delighted and fullv determined to
do all in their power to secure the election
of the Hon. Horatio Bisbee to the forty
sixth congress, and all the democrats
preseut were forced to admit that they
tiad listened to two very talented speakers.
