It was 'hot an oratorical effort, but a masterly review of the record of a party, and of a history. The more it is studied the more it will be admired. A New York Democratic organ says "it was an artful speech but there was no. magnetism in it." Senator; Shermampredicts an extra sessipn:, of Goneress-rrand the -^pre- dictionycomlrig from'so experienced .a statesman: and .ex-treasury, official, will probably carry weight 'with it.

He was the twenty- first President of the United States, a worshipper in the church, and in 1884 erected the window to tho memory of his wife. He died November 18, 1886." During the year 1880 Dakota built and ironed 679 miles of railroad, and graded ready for the,ties 341 miles, in all 1,020 miles. Her total valuation of property for taxation in 1886 was $132,063,905. That is greater than is shown upon the tax duplicates of Alabama, Arkansas. Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, or Vermont.
