views as to the duty of such officer and
seemed to meet the approbation of all
bis hearers. Next in line was the Hon.
J. F. Boyd, our able candidate for con

give the same treatment to his constitu

his district "a square deal" and that he
will stand pat with Boosevelt and his

years his head, mind and knowledge of
state affairs was equal to the oldest in
habitant of the state. He was a very
convincing speaker and told hie hearers
of the evils of therailroada and gave a
satisfactory remedy for the same. The
speaking concluded with a rousing talk
by our United States Senator who dealt
out facts so convincing that the crowd
present remained until a late thoar and
then urged him to continue. The meet
ing was largely attended,, and though
this being a busy season for the farmer
the hall was overflowing with people of
