Routine business was transacted, and the second session was held at the same place, President Kayser of Ft. Scott occupied the chair, and the genial sec retary, R. J. Huns, recorded the proceedings of the meeting. Immediately upon assembling after dinner the reports of officers and committees were resumed, and R. S. Crohn of Kansas City, Kan., ofTored the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: The traveling man has always been an embodiment of Integrity, energy, pluck and Industry. No one class of men has ever done more to enlarge and increase the commerce andindustry of this, the greatest and grandest government the light of civilization has dawned upon. It remained for Congressman Otis, who through an accident in the political affairR ot this great and magnificent commonwealth, was elected to a post tion he has disgraced since assuming it, to arise in the halls of congress and publicly Insult and besmirch every man who bears the grand and enviable title of commerclat traveler. And It were less than manful, less than honorable, less than respectable, were we, the traveling men of Kansas, assembled in our annual meeting, to fail to take some action in this matter. Therefore be It Resolved, By the Kansas Travelers' Association that we can llnd no language forcible enough in its expression to denounce Congressman Otis who termed us "commercial tramps," and be it further Resolved, That In the event that the party responsible for the promotion of this man from his milk wagon and cans, again puts him before the people of the Fourth district for re-election, we, the KansaB traveling men, pledge our sacred word of honor, to do all in our power, by our votes, to relegate this calamity howler to his proper place and level. Be it further Resolved. That the secretary have these resolutions printed and placed in the hands of every traveling man, whether a member or not, and see that they are distributed In the offlce of every hotel in the Fourth district, patronized by tbe commercial men of this district. Resolutions of respect to the memory of 0. It. Fargo of Chicago, who re cently died, were passed by a unanimous vote. Mr. Fargo was an honory member of the K. T. A. Messrs. Crohn, Burton and Porter were appointed as a committee to prepare and present the thanks of this association to the Trans-Missouri Passenger association for special rates. Messrs. Moise, Riehter and Forker were appointed as a committee to prepare resolutions of thanks for the hospitality enjoyed. The election of officers resulted as follows: President—Georgo T. Irvan, nuteh- inson. First Vice President—C. H. Fuller, Emporia. Second Vice President—Sam,' A. Berry, Wichita. Secretary—R. J. Haus, re-elected for the fourth time. Treasurer—Harry Devlin, Leavenworth. Mr. Irvan, the newly elected president, is a citizcu of this city, and numbers his friends by the score—in fact, to know him is to be his sworn friend. He is a first class parliamentarian, is familiar with the laws of the order, and will make them a good presiding officer. His friends here congratulate him on account of the honor bestowed upon him. Shortly after his election he received the following telegram: HUTCHINSON, Kan., May SI, 1802.—Geo I. Irvan, care Secretary R. J. Haus, Whitley Hotel: Please accept congratulations on your election. We feel sure the Kansas Travelers' Association could not have made a better selection. We regret we missed the train. YOUNG, MOOBE, TuoKun, MAGGIE, CAIN DUBBING. POUTKK, MUCIGJNB and fifty others. The next meeting will be held in Wichita, and the occassion will be looked forward to with pleasure by all the boys of the Kansas Travelers association. At the close of the business session the parade, headed by ihe Emporia band, and officers of the association and a line of 200 traveling men, formed at Fifth and Merchants, marching to Sixth and returning on the same street to Fourth, thence east to Commercial and north to Tenth Avenue, west to Merchant^ and south to the Hotel Whitney. The lines formed into an open double file and the ladies In carriages were driven between the ranks, whUe the band discoursed lively music. The members retired to the hotel to enjoy the evening until the opera, Pirates of Penzance, at the Whitley opera' house this evening. In front of his place of business, E. A. Beecher presented each gentleman in line with a cane, ornamented with a neat ribbon, inscribed, "Souvenir—E. A. Beecher & Co., Hatters and Furnishers, Emporia, Kansas." Saturday Kveittng'H Programme. At 8 o'elock Saturday evening the Whitley opera house was crowded to its utmost capacity in the parquet and the gaUery was well filled. Tho een- tral block of seats down stairs had been reBorved and was occupied by the visiting K. T. A's. and tho resident commercial men. The remaining seats were occupied by citizens and their families. Seated on the platform were president elect, Goo. T. IavM,..)ftteK$Ms^ dont Kayser of 11 Sc.otJ|>JI« J". Hotis the efficient secretary of%t||E >'y,:;!,J 1 and Claude Duval of Hutchinson. Mr. Haus Introduced Hon. I. E. Lambert of this city, who delivered an address of welcome, which was received with hearty applause. The following is a synopsis of his address: '•This great empire has been developed by noble efforts, and commerce has played an important part in the work, and when we contemplate the results we realize that the greater part of ' it has been done by traveling men, whom Emporia cor dially welcomes to this city. In speaking of such a body of intelligent men, It a disgrace to any man, in any position, whatever it may be, at home or abroad, to rise in his position and Insult the character of men who have done so much to up­ build tho state, and no such sentiment permeates the blood of any true Kansan. As citizens of Kansas you are welcome. As representatives of industry and commerce wo welcome you. As the seasons come and go we expect to meet you in the reunions and prosecution of business duties. Our citizens appreciate the honor you have conferred upon us by meeting here, and the city is yours. In order that people may be assured an entrance any place, they are always provided with a key, and on behalf of the citizens and business men I herewith pre- ITomeB." Byrnes. Responded to by T. F. T. F. BYRNES' RESPONSE. Mr. Toastmaster, Ladles and Gentlemen: "First in the crowded car is he to offer— This traveling man unhonorcd and unsung— The scathe paid for is lie first to proffer, To Bome lady old and wrinkled, or to some lady fresh and young.

I know of no field of action where the better qualities of woman can be displayed than in the family of the traveling man. While we are out upon the road new scenes are presented each day; men of different temperament are met, new places are visited—what we call the vexations of business tend to him. This much abused, misused, 'commercial man.'" The toast assigned to me this evening is a grand subject for thought and speech, and I fully realize that my remarks will fall far short of giving expression to my thoughts or doing justice to the subject. There are in the United States 480,000 commercial travelers, who are continually traveling over the land visiting every place (that is any place) representing by their energy and ability the entire manufacturing and mercantile interests of this drive oway dullncB8 great commercial nation, and by their good conduct and kind acts -480,000 1 homes. This great body of strong, self-reliant, home-loving men, are not I tramps, but are a grand commercial army of peace for trade and commerce, maintains peace and plenty and en- cial army, 480,000 strong. The soldiers I of the sword were stimulated by love of land and home to go forth to battle, and the soldiers of commerce are imbued with the same love of home and numerous to mention, we can but feel welcome.

Let you life and mine be such that our wives will be proud to call us husband, not ashamed to bear our name. Let joy reign supreme, let gentleness, kindness, forbearance, sympathy, charity, be our watchword. Then will we have, happy wives, happy children, happy homes and the cry "Papa is coming," ring through the house like the merry chimes of silver bells, and after life's fitful dream is past we will need no more fitting epitaph than than this, he knew his duty to wife. The next toast was, "Our Host," Ire- jonded to by Col. II. C. Whitley. The colonel was in his usual happy mood and said that he had written out, as he thought, a very good speech which he intended to deliver at this banquetand he read it to Joe Waters, who also " thought it was good. Joe slipped the speech away from him and delivered it before the audience in the opera house, and he therefore would have to be excused from making any extended remarks, which predicament received rounds of applause.
