houe is now fighting the same repub
lican organization in Virginia that he
did four years ago.

saying in his speech at Lincoln, "1
expect, after the nomination at Chi
cago, to cause Nebraska to roll up a
majority of 35,000 or 40,000 for the

such "gray-haired captains" among

who dare to stand up lor truth aud

mond, that your fervent "God bless
you, children," will reverberate
throughout all eternity aud bring
fruit "a thousand fold."
Selections were also read by Bert
Galley, Eddie Ballon and others. Our
juvenile Band is anxious to see an

of the National, or State Humane
Association,) in order to have some
headquarters at which case3 of cruelty
which may be witnessed almost daily
on our streets, can he reported.
