IIUTCHINSOST DAILY NEWS, FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1892. 3. AT THE END. LABORS' OF THE BIG CONVENTION ENDED LAST" NIGHT. lt'WiiKthr LurRnat IIIKI Moat Hiirmonloua Convention TlmtJivor Aunt-milled In tlio St«t«—A.litliony CliOMflli »is C'HfKlllllltfl fop Cniir-rnsaiiinii-iit-T.iirBe—Mr. IHRRIT or Our City OhoRcn ttii Delegate to thn Min- IIC»IM>I1K Couvnutlon by n Noitfc Vote— Other Matters. After t-Tie adoption of the resolutions and other preliminary business, the nomination of a candidate for eoDgress- man-at-larfjc was the order. Judge Stover of Allen county presented the (fame of Gen. .1. C. Caldwell; Hon. C. .ft. Mitchell of Cowley placed Ed V. Greer of that county in nomination; Jtidge Grave of Lyon county placed in nomination S. I!. Bradford of Shawnee, and J. IJ . Hristow of Saline county presented the name of ex-Oovernor Geo. T. Anthony amid great enthusiasm. In nominating Mr. Anthony, Mr. Hristow said: Mr. Chairman and |Gcntlemen of the Convention: The gentlemen whose names have been presented to vou upon this oc- are gentlemen worthy casion are gentlemen worthy of the highest honors' that can be bestowed uppn them. They are gentlemen who w-iilil represent you with credit to -Hlfc'msclves'and credit to you and to the state, but I should like to ask you if on<? word has been said in their honor or their praise that can not be emphasized when the name of George T. Anthony is presented. We ask you, gentlemen, to try no experiment, we ask you to run no risks. If there is any man who doubtB the ability of Geo. T. Anthony to represent this state in the American congress, 1 point him to Denver. There last summer in the silver convention, in the very heart of the silver movement of this country, in the state of Colorado. If any of you still doubt, I point you to New Orleans where statesmen sent to him in order to learn wisdom from his lips. Gentlemen, look at the city of Washington, and what do you see? Nothing. Listen and what do you hear? It is the voice of Rachel weeping for her children. The Lamentations of Jeremiah are very well in their place, but they have no business in the Congressional Records. When this gentleman stands upon the floor of congress, he will advertise the '"ict that Kansas has no use for men who malign her name. In his pres ence no man will dare to slur her name, 1 ask you in the name of your party to place at the head of your ticket that illustrious statesman, Geo. T. Anthony. ' Gen. U.K. 1'earsall, of Uourbon, sec onded the nomination of Anthony, followed by J. A. Huron, of Shawnee in favor of Bradford. The result of the tlrst ballot was AnJJiony,' 2M; Greer, 203; Bradford, I 'aldwell, 70. No choice, ic second ballot gave Anthony !13'J: Greer, 101: Bradford, 117: Caldwell, 70. I No choice. The third ballot resulted in Anthony 451: Bradford, 30; Caldwell, 13(3; Greor, 108. It being apparent that Anthony had received a majority, amidst the. greatest enthusiasm the delegations iroin Sedgwick, Cowley and Dickinson moved that his nomination be made unanimous, which was carried with unbounded enthusiasm, which continued for several minutes. A committee was sent to escort Governor Anthony to the convention hall, and after a few minutes brought him into the convention. His entrance was the signal for another outburst of applause. Being introduced by the chairman as the next eongressman-at-large, Sir. Anthony said: OOVBBNOJl ANTHONY'S SPEECH. Mil. PRESIDKNT ADD GENTI.KMKN OK THK CONVKNTION : It would be impossible for me to coin into words an expression of the profound obligation which you have placed me under in selecting me for this exalted position- exalted because a representative position—a position representative of you and of the people of Kansas. I am not here to take your time which you need in the accomplishment of the balance of the work of this convention, but wish to impress upon your minds here to-day that the completion of your work must not be left to those you nominate to position, but itmustbe left to the great is of the people themselves, who sngage in the great work of dis- g the false education that has .... forced on the people and made us appear ridiculous in the eyes of the world. I have only this to say—let us nail on the banner of Kansas the eternal principles of Republicanism. Let us nail on our banner as a motto, the right of the voter to vote and to have his vote counted as he easts it. Let us nail on our banner that citizenship in the United States of America is a boon no man has a right to possess without the qualifications necessary to make himself a good citizen. Let us nail to our banner, "Protection to American Labor and an Honest l)ol lar." Let us do this and we will go on to a victory which will not only be the redemption of Kansas but it will be a a key-note to the country. It will be taken up, and sooner than you think for, the seed you plant will result in ,'SU'publican victory throughout the S ^untry. [Cheers.] It next came the duty of the eonven, tion to select six delegates-at-largo to the Minneapolis convention. A i ber of names were presented to the convention, among which wus the name of Hon. fi.. A. Bigger of this city, The roll of counties was called and the vote announced by the chairman of escbi delegation, as it was called wi .wi resulted in the election of the folloiviug gentlemen: E. G. Little 604 votes; L. A. Bigger, 585 votes. A. B. EUIB, 461 votes. Calvin Hood, •43 vote*. C. C. James, 435 votes. The viously chosen by i acclamation as a del- j egate, and as chairman of the delegation, amid deafening cheers, while Hags, hats, handkerchiefs, etc., were waving wildly. A resolution having also previously passed, that the five gentlemen receiving the hipUes vote be declared elected, the abore named gentlemen were declared duly elected. The following is a list of the names of the alternates: A. B. Ivcllar chosen as Ingall's alternate, Geo. N. Nickel, E. M. Bmmrtns, II. V. Mason, Ira Collins and Chas. W. Hall, Dr. King, Rudolphs UatBeld and Win. Hamilton were chosen as electors at largo. A. R. Peters was unanimously recommended as national committeeman. ^ A resolution was,passed urging recognition of the needs of western Kansas on the question of irrigation. A resolution was also introduced and passed the substance of which was 1 'That no man be placed on the national committee who is a federal officeholder." This completed the work of the great convention, and an adjournment was taken and the delegates began to prepare for the departure for home. It was/ 'indeed a greot gathering. The largest convention that ever assembled in the state. Many wero the kindly words spoken by the delegates as they took a view back over the; time covering the convention and their stay in this city. Our convention hall was a surprise to every one. It is near enough to completion to give all an idea of the character of the building when the finishing touches have been given to it. It was the universal decision of all that Hutchinson had done herself proudly in the manner in which she had cared for her many distinguished and representative visitors. The labors of the convention were very satisfactory to all, and even the defeated candidates were outspoken in their admiration for the good will and harmony which prevailed. In the selection of lion. L. A. Bigger of this cii/, as a delegate-at-large, the convention did a wise thing, and thereby selected one of the best men in central ^or western Kansas. And the vote which he received at the hands of the delegates was a fitting attestation of the regard which the Republicans of Kansas have for him. MK. CUBUISON'S SPEECH. MR. CHAIRMAN AND GENTLEMEN OF THE CONVENTION : Since the day I led my blushing sweetheart to the altar, this is the happiest day of my life. Tho gratification of presiding over an intelligent convention of the most intelligent state in the Union is enough for any man. The Republican party is stronger this year than it has been since the memorable campaign of 1880 when we succeeded in electing that trained talesman and martyred president, amos A. Garfield of Ohio. The Hepub- icau party is stronger with the people to-day than it was in 1888 when the allant Ben Harrison [cheers | confronted a condition and not a theory the person of Grover Cleveland [laughter]. In November of that year an autopsy was held, and the American _ eople serving as acting coroner, sat upon the remains of Grover Cleveland and returned a verdict of "inocuous desuetude" [applause]. Ben Harrison himself is stronger with the American people to-day than he \^as in 1888 [applause]. The Republican party consists of more than one man and of more than one idea, and it always has the courage of its convictions [cheers.] It had the courage to pass the MelCinley bill in the face, of approaching defeat. It courted defeat in 1890, but knew it would be ultimately successful because that bill voiced the sentiments of American labor. The preseut administration has taken tho boldest position in favor of American labor and American honor that has been assumed by any administration for the past fifty years [applause]. The Republi can party has always represented the same principles in every state in the union—it stands to-day for patriotism, freedpm and equality, as much in Texas as in New England—it advocates a free ballot and an honest count, as much in Ohio as in South Carolina [applause]. It advocates protection as much in Georgia Massachusetts. It loves Bill McKinley as much in Kansas as in Pennsylvania and it loves reciprocity and Jim Blaine in every state of the union [cheers]. A Delegate—"Three cheers for Blaine!" [The cheering was tumultuous and long.] Another Delegate—"Three cheers for Harrison!" [The audience again broke loose. After some minutes Mr, Cubbison continued.] During the present administration there htavc been more complicated questions to settle with foreign nations than during any preceding administration of this government. When the greatest empire on earth, with the arrogance of a despot and the audacity of a pirate, trespassed upon our coast and endeavorod to de stray our Alaskan seal flsherios, it on- countered the grand intellect, the mighty brain, the master mind of James G. Blaine—and as a result of that interview the British lion sneaked home with head down and tail droop ing, while the festive seal gambols and sports at his leisure upon the icebergs of the north land. [Loud cheers and laughter.] When the people of New Orleans found it necessary to kill a few dago cut-throats and oath-bound assassins in order to preserve law and order, the Italian government became insulted, severed diplomatic relations and threatened war—and again tho present administration rose to the occasion with courage and intelligence Another foreign nation Interviewed our great secretary of state, and result of that interview the Italian government has, since the calling of this convention, accepted Mr. Blaine's terms of settlement, and friendly relations have been resumed. [Applause. JI When American seamen, belonging to an American man-of-war, were waylaid, assassinated, brutally beaten and murdered in the principal streets of Chili's capital city, the old Republican loyally to the llatr—the old courage of lies'.ieea- --of Kenesaw mouutaiii—of !'eiif !i Tree creek—Hashed from the p.itri.itic eye of Ben Harrison, and he voi <:i -d th" sentiments of the great patriotic heart of America, when ho said in substance to the Chilian government: "Fight or apologize, and do it mighty quick." [Prolonged cheer- The great cardinal doctrine of the Republican party has been protection to America and to American labor, and under its mighty influence the United States has made such majestic strides of civilization that the whole civilized world has gazed in astonishment upon our marvelous progress [applause]. No wonder the Democratic party is opposed to protection, for it assisted materially in keeping that party out of power for a quarter of a century. When the Democratic party, turned this government over to the Republican party in 1801 it delivered it to us with a mighty civil war upon our hands, and the United States treasury so empty that even the mice ran away from it with tears in their eyes. [Cheers and laughter. J Patriotism and protection saved the nation, and the Democratic party was so disappointed that it has been opposed to them ever since. [Laughter.] The McKinley bill has shut out of American markets the goods and merchandise manufactured by the pauper labor of Europe, but this is not enough—we must have legislation that will prevent the offscourings and pauper labor of Europe from coming over here [cheers] and degrading American labor. [Applause.] Shutting out the goods made by foreign labor will not of itself preserve the American market for the American citizen, so long as we permit the cbeap foreign labor to come in. The time for sentiment has passed —the hour has arrived when this nation must exercise some good American horse sense. [Applause. ] Europe has been sending over to us her poor relations, her vicious black sheep, long enough, They simply de grade American labor to their own vicious level. The Republican party must rise in its grandeur and bar out this mass. Let none but worthy persons cuter. This government has a room and a welcome for the decent and law-abiding foreigner who is attracted to our shores by the liberty guaranteed and inspired by our country's starry banner—it matters not to us whether they come from the vine- clad hills of Prance, the rocky peaks of Wales or the highlands of Scotland —whether from the valley of the Rhine, the lakes of Killarney or the frozen shores of Scandinavia—we have a room and a welcome for them all we have no room and no welcome for that low, vicious class of foreigners who only come to compete with and degrade American labor and to revile the Hag that protects them. [Cheers.] Our Democratic friends in congress have been making a great noise about free wool. True to its history and traditions, the Democratic party is too cowardly to attempt to repeal tin McKinley bill, so they are endeavoring to assassinate it. [Applause.] For more than twenty years years the Democratic party howled against the "robber tariff" on iron, because iron was the greatest product of the north But the benefits of protection, like th dews of heaven, have fallen upon the sinner as well as the righteous, and to-day the southern heavens are black with the smoke from the furnaces and rolling mill andiron industries of east Tennessee northern Georgia and Alabama—so to day, while these southern states arc coming to life under the inspiring touch of protection, backed by north em capital, the Democratic party overlooks iron and attacks the northern farmer by advocating free wool, [cheers and cries of "that's so!" | And yet the Democratic party, in its advocacy of free wool, is just twenty-nine years behind the Republican party. The Republican party took its stand in favor of "free wool" on the 1st of January, 1803, when the immortal Abraham Lincoln issued the emancipation proclamation [tumult of cheering] and put wool upon the free list—the "wool" that grows upon the negro's head! The mission of the Republican party will not be ended until every black man in the south can freelv east his ballot and have it honestly counted. [Cheers.] To permit one class of men to disfranchise another class under a Republican form of government, is like tying firebrandB to the foxes' tails and turning them loose among the standing corn; it is like putting out the eyes of a Sampson and then twining his arms around the pillars of the nation's temple, for a government founded upon the ballot cun not survive the destruction of the ballot- box. [Cheers.] Every time the "force bill" is mentioned the southern Democrat goes into spasms. [Here the speaker recited an amusing story, and emphasized the necessity of the Republican party choosing its weapons accordance witli the character of its opponents, eliciting prolonged applause.] The force bill is the only pitch-fork that will ever settle this southern question and settle it right, and that is what we will have to do sometime. [Cheers.] Now. gentlemen of the convention, I haven't said anything about the third party, for wicked as I may be, there is one crime 1 have never committed and never will-—I never desecrate the graves of the dead. J Laughter.] This convention here to-day is here for business—it is here to nominate a ticket that will sweep Kansas and give her again the pure name she had while the Republican party controlled the state. [Applause]. Half a dozen gentlemen will come before the convention for congessional honors, any one of whom will add glory to Kansas. ietorv is in the air this year—you can almost, feel it. Old Jim lllaine and re- iprocity are with us this year [cheers], protection and Bill McKinley are with us this year [cheers], John Sherman and honest money are with us this year, and before November God Almighty and good crops will be with us. [Cheers]. This simply means that Kansas vill be her old Republican self and that lien Harrison will be the next president of the United States. [Prolonged cheering].

Ingalls as the first dole- gate-at-large, was carried with great enthusiasm. Some of the counties with only three votes experienced great difficulty in giving one vote to each of the four candidates for congressmen-at-lavge. Chairman Cubbison is quite an orator, ami as an executive officer he has but feu equals. His rulings gave very general satisfaction. It was a good humored convention from first to last. Everybody felt enthusiastic even in the face of defeat for position on the ticket. An Oltl Timer. Lute Perry of Paola, has been in the city attending the convention. He has thoroughly enjoyed the visit, as this is the first time he has been here since leaving eighteen years ago. He and his brother were tho founders of the NEWS , the first paper printed in Reno county. Tl*e first edition was a boomer, and 5.000 copies were printed on a hand pi-ess and distributed throughout the east. As an incentive to the boys to start newspaper, Mr. C. C. Hutchinson gave them a large slice of Main street prop erty. After looking over the city Mr Parry thinks he would like to be kicked for not keeping his lots and staying in what is now the best city in Kansas. Mr. Parry is a very pleasant gentleman, and has received a hearty welcome from the old-timers with whom he was a favorite twenty years ago. •loliu ,J. IiignllH for President. Hon. S. .1. Hale, delegate elect to the national Republican convention at Minneapolis, from Rush county, has started the ball to rolling that the Kansas delegation to Minneapolis be solid for that unique statesman and brilliant orator, John J. Ingalls, for president of the great meeting to be held at .Minneapolis. The Republicans who will go to this convention owe this much to their gallant son; and besides, no man in this great nation would add more dignity to the office, than would he who was the chief attraction in tho senate of the United Stales, as the representative of the greatest state iu the Union. The ball is now started, and let us keep it rolling until it shall reach its grand climax when tho convention meets. The Young Kepuhllcana or the Weat. One of the noticeable features of the convention held in this city, was the presence of so many intelligent, fine looking and rising young men. The young Republicans were not only delegates, but were at the head of im portant committees and conspicuous in many respects. Formerly—this was not the case—they were usually relegated to tho rear. But this is now different, .hist as it should. Hurrah for the young men. HUTCHINSON STOCK YARDS CO., Are Doing a General Yard Business. Ample accommodation for cattle, hogs and sheep.
