The keenly anticipated Andre ws-
Kcighati joint debate lias passed into
history , and with it go a train of most
highly gratifying remembrances to the
Republicans of iMcCook and south
western Nebraska. In the first place
the demonstration made by the Repub
lican clubs of Holdrego , Cambridge ,
Benkelman , Ilaigler , Max , Hayes
Centre and McCook , preceding the
debate , was unparalled in point of
numbers and enthusiasm in local
annals. There were perhaps over f)00
voters in line , led by the uniformed
brass hands of Cambridge and McCook ,
and the uniformed martial bands of
Benkelman , Uoldrego and Hayes Cen
tre ; and together with their torches and
banners galore , they made an inspiring
scene , unbounded enthusiasm prevail
ing all the while.
The attendance exceeded expectations
and the wigwam provided in the open
space noi th of the Commercial [ louse
was entirely unequal to the task of ac
commodating the applauding hundreds
As to the merits of the debate our
independent friends doubtless entertain
other and different convictions than do
the Republicans. But the latter have
every reason to feel proud and gratified
at the splendid defence made of Repub
lican doctrines and principles and poli
cy by their admirable and able champion
and standard bearer , Hon. W. E. An
drews , who gave most convincing and
entertaining proof of his ability to cope
with the wily and practiced veteran
Congressman McKeigban , who has met
in Mr. Andrews a gentleman , scholar
arid debater pre-eminently worthy of
li\s \ steel.
The Republicans of this part of the
district will go away from this debate ;
with a confidence immensely strengthen
ed , for their leader has in their hearing
given most vigorous evidence that their
trust has not been misplaced , that he is
able to maintain their cause with digni
ty and power.
The ladies of the Congregational
church realized a neat sum out of their
supper , Jast evening , and assisted large
ly in feeding the crowd which thronged
to hear the debate.
As usual both sides won or think
uitjy uiu wnicii is not. auogeiner unue-
sirable , as all can feel happy.
When it comes to banners galore the

in it. -
It was the largest and most intensely
enthusiastic political gathering ever held in
