We are here to pledge our support to the man who Hhnll be chosen to wear the mantle of our honored President. Whether that mantel shall fall upon the shoulders of Taft (loud oheors) or any other good republican, we are here to support him. i "This will be n hard fought campaign, and it is our duty to gird on our armor mid tight. It in the duty of every loyal Republican to take the Held and exert himself to the utmost for his party and the principles whioh it represents." "It is a promising sign that, so early in the campaign, you are willing to turn out in suoh numbers, 1 ' said K. A. Meserve. "It shows that you are ready to get into line. And , it shows that you want to get into line an Republicans and Dot as the tail of any so called 'reform' kite. , We must see that we win the (joining election by the greatest majority ever known to history. We shall not be called upon simply to pile up a majority for the candidate of our party: we shall be called upon to net the seal ot our approval upon the administration whioh is now drawing to a close. "In time of war, men under tiie excitement of the moment, take delight in tmcritlcing themselves, in going to the front and laying down their lives if need be, in defense of their country. It may not be easy to hear the call of duty during tiinua ot peace, but the call is there just the Name. It is juwt as much our duty to turn out now and work for the principles which we believe iu aw it would be in time of war for us tn go to the front; there is just as much room for patriot ism now as there ever ban been. "Take can what men you neiid to the Chicago convention. Htv lhat your phitform contains planks which ntand for the policies of the Republican party. See that it represents the policies which have distinguished the party dining the past lour years. See that It indorses Roosevelt V light for letter government, tor enforcement ot the law.

(Prolonged applause, ) The next speaker Introduced was William J. tlanlon. In introducing him Mr. Lee said he is one of the younger men in the Republican ranks, one of the young men whose enthusiasm would be of inestimable value iu the coming campaign. Col. P. M. Chapman of Covinn, member of tho Governor's staff, spoke on behalf of Gov. Gillett, saying briefly: "The Governor has hoped to he here tonight to extend to you his good wishes iu person. He was unable to make connections, however, so upon me devolves the pleasing duty of representing him. It is a gre'it pleasure to see so many of you here this evening, and wo old Republicans, who have been through many a hard-fought campaign iu this State, are thankful for the enthusiasm which you are showing. It speaka well for the success ot the coming campaign. " State Senator W. H. Savage spoke in behalf of the Army and Navy Republican League.
