His address was delivered in the Swedish language and was on the paramount issues of the cam- paign. As this meeting is the formal opening of the campaign in the city it is considered by all to be a very Â·successful beginning in the cause of sound money. Although the Swedish population of this city and the entire county are almost without exception in favor of McKinley and sound money having had experience with free sil- ver in their own country, and be- came convinced thereby that they do not want to see it here, the ad- dress which they heard on Saturday evening, while it made no converts Â·(because there was none to con- vert), seemed to strengthen those who were already for sound money in their belief that they had taken the right course. And if by chance we have made an error in the state- ment that there were non there to convert we feel perfectly safe in the statement that they were not Skan- dinavians, but those who had gone there out of curiosity and did not understand the words of the speaker. Prof. Enander is a man of ex- ceptionally commanding appearance and courtly address and one who it is a pleasure and an honor to meet. His appearance is excelled only by his fluency of address and a thorough knowledge of The political Â·situation as it exists in the country to-day. He spoke in Ironwood on Friday evening to a large and enthusiastic occurred the following important events in the world's history: HOLIDAYS.

He will open the campaign here for the Republican party. He speaks in both the English and Swedish tongues, but his talk here Â·will be to the Scandinavian voters in their native tongue. Mr. Enander is one of the best known Swedes in America. He is not the finest Swedish orator in this country but is known as a talented level-headed man. During President Harrisson's administration, he was spoken of for the position of minister to Denmark. For a time he was professor of the Swedish language in the Angustana college and he has also held other positions of note. Mr. Enander addressed the Scandi- navian voters of Iron Mountain dur- ing the campaign four years ago, so is no stranger to those who were here at the time. He will speak here under the auspices of the McKinley and Hobart club. There will doubt- . less be a big turnout to hear him. The Grim Reaper.
