He then aunr-hed out in a review of the war, iving the Republican party credit for •what had so far been done in the prosecution of the fwar with Spain. He «howed his preference for the. nomination of Steele by eulogizing the Major's services in Congress and intimating that it might be a good thing to :eep a man in Congress vrbo will stand like a stone wall for his country's lonor. At the close of the address the chair announced that the next thing in order would toe the selection of tempor- iry secretary. After some delay John B.''Rowe, of Wabasfe, was named and •lected.

The committee on resolutions reported a platform that reaffirms the national platform of the Republican party of 1S06, endorses President Me- Kinlcy's administration and his conduct in relation to the war with Spain: praises the State officials, Senator Fairbanks and the Republican Con- sresstr.en and congratulates Admirals Dewey, Sampson and Schley. The' Republicans of the Eleventh congressional district, in convention assembled, do hereby embrace this opportunity to reaffirm their unqualified faith in and adhearance to the principles of the Republican party as enunciated in the the platform of tha: party in 1S06. We further endorse, without reservation, the acts and conduct of the administration of President McKinley in national affairs, and of^ •State adjninJsrratu>n |- Snd of Senator Charles W, Fairbanks and onr representatives in Congress.

Admiral George Dewey, and his gallant officers an-d men. believing the outcome inevitable we 1 also commend and congratulate Admiral Sampson and Commander Schley upon their heroism and seaman-like conduct in Cuban waters in pursuing and punishing the enemies of the United States. REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OX CREDENTIALS. Warren G. Sayre of Wabash sub- mitred the report of the committee on credruiials as soon as the convention coavf-i].',1 at the afternoon session. He reported that the committee on credentials were unable to make a report—the committee standing 3 to 3. Capt. Milton Gfirrigus of Howard county made an explanation of the situation as it relates to the contest in Miami county and offered a resolution seating both contesting delegates and giving to each contestant a vote in the convention. Mr. I.ovel.ind moved to amend the resolution by seating the regularly elected or Stntesmen delegates. The amendment was seconded by Mr. Boy?r of Cass. After some preliminary sparring Mr. Lovpland got the floor and spoke at length in favor of the seating •Statesman delegates. He told of the troubles that had occurred in the city of Peru at the time the delegates to the convention were chosen. It was a sorrowful tale in which the wickedness of the Steele men was portrayed You Make a Mistake IF YOU DON'T READ SALE ADS.

He read the- en 11 for the Pern convention, and showed his readiness to help Steele knock out 'Statesman. When he made a. point favorable to the contestant?:, the men vented their approval •with cheers. He pleaded for harmony and magnanimity. At the close of Garrigue' plea for the Sreele contestants, Mr. Boyer of Cass got the floor and he cheered the iStutesinan 'men immensely by declaring that the contestants'Ought not to be recognized. Mr. Love-land closed the debate.'He -warmed 1 up and poured hot-afoot into the ranks of the Steele contestants. While he -was speaking there was much turmoil and some outsiders be- gnn to ask questions; ' - •' When Loveland' closed, a 'vote -was taken viva voce and 1 the amendment •was declared adopted ; by the chair. This hear the Steele men and they induced the chair to make a call of the counties for a division. As the call .proceeded the Steele men voted "nay"' and the McDonnell and/Statesmen following voted "yea.". When Miami county -was called a •wrangle occurred over die .question of permitting the contemns delegates to vote. The chair ruled against their voting and the vote Showed" that the Steele men had S3 votes to Statesmen's 51. When the vote was announced Harry 'ertit of Wabash moved to reconsider he vote. Milton' Garrigns moved to ay motion on the table amd the motion prevailed. STUTBSMAX'S SPEECH. .Tames Statesman then got the floor ancl withdrew from the convention as candidate.

The announcement of Judge McConnell's name w.as received witii lou-d and approving applause. Dr. D. K. Francis of Marion presented the name of Major Steele in a very flowery speech and he delivered it very well. The first ballot resulted in Steele's nomination as follows: McConndl Steele Cass 16 6 .

It is said at the medical department of the army that a great number of the volunteers who have been rejected for physical disability are bicycle riders, who, by that violent exercise, have developed diseases of the heart and the spine which unfit them for erposure or endurance. These troubles are said to lie confined almost entirely TO riders who use low handlebars and .learn forward in .the saddle.
