larger than the hall could hold.
Hon. Ii. 1J. Windham presided and

sneech that was sound to the core in

Mr. JJeeson, the speaker, proceeded
at once to the discussion of the para

kept his audience, which filled ater-
man's hall to overflowing, in excel

aullv illustrate a point. Uis address
was au able argument in favor of the
republican platform that to reasonable
men seemed unanswerable.
