Sioux City Journal: The convention proper more than divided time with the republican league clubs of the state, and there were oratory, music and parades, and shouting, and so forth and so forth sufficient to tax the endurance of the people of any other state than South Dakota. There was a big meeting, under the auspices of the league, on Tuesday night, and the convention was willing to wait while the league went on with another big meeting on Wednesday night. The convention met at '1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, effected a temporary organization and adjourned early until 10:. 'in in the evening. The auditorium was packed with enthusiastic republicans: every county was represented and every delegation appeared to be THE TIC WET. The ticket nominated at Sioux Falls m strong and clean from top to bottom. No apologies or defense need be made during the campaign. At the head of the ticket is Hon. F. W. Martin for congress, a new man in politics, but well km w n to the people of the Black Hills and to thousands of people east of the liver. All that the Pioneer Times said of him before the convention goes now just the same as it did only- more so. The preliminary campaign has prepared him for the one to 'follow.
