thrice armed with the riyht on their

proposition that this country should
louyer sully its fair fame and besmirch
its splendid banner by a murderous
course of conquest and pillaye.

all three proved themselves pastmas
tersiuthe art of debate, preserving
at all times a coolness of head which
more than once stood them well in
hand, and demonstrated their ability
to think clearly, incisively and rapidly
whiieupon their feet. Their delivery,
and especially that of Millard Leflier,
Earl Travis, Don Despain and Leon
I'eppei-bery, the I'lattsmouth boys,
labored under the disadvantage of
bavin- had less of team work and pre
paration than their opponents. But
the earnest spirit in which they went
