The Republican ratification banquet at the Hotel Vendome Tuesday evening, convinced the line officers of tho local Republican party that the unity in tbe local moverueut ia absolute, and that the chances for good, concerted action in the future are excellent. Tbe beuquet came as a surprise to some, but was tbe outcome of tho general good feeling prevailing after tbe election. Forty prominent business men of Covina participated. Tbe diniug room of the Vendome was tastily decorated with pepper bl jssoms and huge chrysanthemums, the flowers coming iu part from Mrs. John Coolman. Tbe tables were arranged so that all were comfortably seated. Toastmaster J. L. Matthews in opening tbe affair said that he Was happy for many reasons. Happy because be is a Republican, happy because tbe Republicans won, and because the victory made it possible to hold this feast of ratification. At this point Andrew MoAllen was called upon for an original song he had prepared, and tbe song was rendered to tbe tune of "Goodbye My Love, Goodbye," while the whole gatheiing came in heavily on tbe choruses. The words were: "The battle is over, the victory won, Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye; ANDREW M. PENCE ATTORNEY-AT-LAW Notary Public Phone 1039 Reed Block Covina, Cal and fun, Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye.' The campaign just finished was n strenuous spell, Goodbye Bill Bryan, Goodbye, And uow the people with prosperity's swell, Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye. Covina uow boasts of a prophet indeed, Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye; With the folks saying 'How did you know it, Doo Reed?' Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye. That great state, Missouri, did do her part well, Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye, With the Democrats following the G. O.P. bell, Goodbye, Bill Bryan, Goodbye. When the echoes of MoAllen'H masterpiece bad been safely stowed »wuy in the archives and furthest rnftcis of the building, tbe turkey begun to come iu in great plates prepared for campaign appetites. The slaughter of delectable things to ent was carried on amid the shouts of victorious Republicans who bad scoured themselves against famine by waylaying the waiters. Proprietor FitzGerald was everywhere and made tbe banquet n signal success. The hotel gave a very creditable dinner, nnd one that will be remembered for some time. Interspersed between tbe courses were speeches grave and gay. General S. P. Jeunison, the Republican wheelhorse, grown old but straight as a gun iu the service, made an address in which he touched upon tbe inception of tbe Republican party, telling of the first work personally done in the New England states when the Whigs were abroad in the land. Tbe General was witty and kindly in his remarks, and frequently was interrupted by applause. As fast as a speaker relinquished bis right to the floor, a song wns sent ringing to tbe roof by Republican Henchman Andrew McAllen, and every throat poured out, the old melodies from "America" to "We Won't Go Home Until Morning." Dootor J. D. Reed was called upon by Toastmaster Matthews, but instead of delivering a speech, explained bow Missouri happened to go Republican. The genial doctor devoted himself to a number of humorous happenings of the peat conttned to local men present at the banquet. The doctor told a number of anecdotes about people present, touching with delicate sarcasm some of the pet schemes and ideas of bis bosom friends. Prof. A. H. Collins delivered a short talk iu which be spoke of his introduction into the party as a young man, and of the prosperity which he had invariably seen in bis,country when the par ; Andrew McAllen, in responding to the toaat, "William Jennings Bryan, "made the speech of tho evening. He was interrupted repeatedly by applause, and his tribute to Bryan will be remembered as a flue bit of oratory. "Bryan hua done what no other American has done iu leading one of the great parties three Union to dofnut.s which are achievements almost, to bo ranked higher then victories," tho speaker said. "We IH known in tho countries across the water as our greatest American, a mau recognized as an orator of the highest ability and a statesman taking rank as second to none in this country," Mr. McAllen paid that ho ex- expected tho day to come when Bryan would be heard in tbe senatorial halls at Washington, representing tho great state of Nebraska, while it would not bo a surprising fact to find tho present president, Roosevelt, representing -New York at the same timo. (Continued on last pa EDITOR RIDES WELCH STRIDES Election Wager Paid While People Laugh and It is hard to say what effect poll-| ticaliy the wheelbarrow affair of j Tueaday aftero)pon had on tho community, but it is sure that nearly 2,000 people had a whole load of fun out of it, which was the main \ thing to be considered. J. L. Matthews, editor of the Covina Argus, divides the honors of the day equally with R. A. Welch, the Democrat who wheeled him down the street in payment of an election bet. Welch wns dead sure that Bryan would bo elected. Considering the rote that Bryan got, there were others iu this country who believed in the policies of the Great Commoner, but he didn't win out, and Mr. Matthews received a nice free ride down the main street, which all were there to see. Tho wheelbarrow was one of these ordinary dirt-dumping makes, but it was made beautiful to see by America Liberty bunting and placards. Mr. Welch saw to it that it was liberally covered witlr placards. Welch himself wore a sign which proclaimed, "Poor Bryan," while Mr. Matthews had one inscribed, "Taft Smiles." The trip down from the school house was en livened by music from the high school band, and frequent stops -.s- j elch neared t tf»ef corner vwhote bis real estate office 'is situated, he quickened bis paoe, and finished tho ride in a blaze of glory. The entire population of the grammar and high school wna there to see, mid HO surrounded Uio lowly vohiolo Unit it was for anyone else to see at, all, When Ui« ride wan over, Mr. Matthews mounted an automobile with tho panting Mr. Welch and in- trodured Mr. Welch an "tho hardest, lighter arid the best, loser in tho town."
