You have gone through a moat weari some contest : For thirty days it haa continued and I congratulate you that , as the result of the contest from this republican state , a republican sena tor has been elected. [ Applause. ] lama republican. T glory in the fact and delight to contemplate the history of the party , of which I have been a member. But while a republican I nice for something higher , I am a citizen of this glorious state [ ap plause ] and I go to the high placu to which I am elected , as a citizen of this state of Nebraska , representing , I hope no faction , no party , but the Interest of every party and of all parts of the cltizenehln of thia commonwealth , [ A.pplanao. ] I am a republican , but I glory not in the past of that party , but I glory that within it there la stamina , there is en ergy , there la determination not to live upon the past , but to progress with the march of events into the fa- tnro. In the place that I am to fill I assure yon that whatever there is of wrong that may bb rem edied by my action It will have my beat and earnest endeavors. There are agitated in the national congreaa questions of vital importance not only to the paoplo of this state but to the nation at largo.

All that there I In mo shall bo devoted honestly an faithfully to the performance of th duty to which you have elected mt I look forward to no six yoara ef east I know that It moana a term of hai labor and oarnoat work. I bel there is something higher and no In the position of a senate . the United States than that of T- ' , the simple medium through whlob patronage of this government sha dladenaed. That fa a part of the d perhaps , but I look upon it aa the meanest part. I certainly do not de sire that this high oflico should be come a more broker shop for the dis tribution of offices. [ Applauat ] I aoo aomothlng higher than that and I will act my aim higher. I may falter on my road to reach It , but I assure yon gentlemen , that It will not be becanau I do not doalro to roach that high aim , but It will be from an inherent weak ness beyond my control , I will i < ot detain you further. The president of the senate caullona mo that the time ( a progressing , and that you are anx ious to como to an adjournment. Gentlemen of the convention , I heartily thank yon , and in giving you my thanks I desire to return them al so to the gentlemen who have competed with me for this high honor. It Is to the credit of this state that wo come out of thia fight with no blttornesj whatever.
