scheduled to reach Lincoln an hour

was the iornmon wish of republicans
and democrats, alike in Fairbury to
day, where thousands gathered to ex
tend a welcome to Charles E. Hughes,

of the United States.
. All day the city was filling with
people from the country for miles
about and great cavalcades of auto

Kennedy.- R.,B. Steele, of Fairbury
was head ot the reception committee.
Mr Kennedy prefaced the; earning
of Charles E. Hughes by explaining
to the -voters of JFairburv the char

had been made on Mr. Hughes for
the last si weeks and he explained
that Mr. Hughes. Is not a knocker

statesman. ... ' r -'; ' , ' '
Mr. Hughes and party arrived here
at 2, o'clock and were conveyed im

they were received with . long and

Over 13,000 posters advertising the
nieeting had been distributed over
radius of at least fifty miles in every
direction from Fairbury. Nearly ten
automobiles travelled the country all
