FEDERATION [CLOSE TODAY (MPORTANT PAPERS AND ELEC TIOS or OFFICERS. \ At a meetiug ot the officers uf thi KofiabUcau county central committee and Republican candidates tlil» afternoon steps were taken to make thi closing of the campaign a hot out Plans were made to hold a meeting every night next week in echool hous ca centrally located in the differeni toivnahips. A list of speakers com po ^ed of^ iDc best in the party is bcin( made up this afternoon and will be an nouuccd in a day or two. Already number < of local' speaker^ have offered 4h«?lr services and It is cxpectci that no locality will be overlooked. • The meetings thus far this fall bavt been vei'y successful. >\irmers havi turned out in large numbers and hav( taken aii active part in workiug U| cnltauaiasm in the campaign. Mow ever it was fouud that many locali tics would not be reached by holding one meeting a night, hence the pur pose of the meetiug this afternoon. On account of the storm, the presi- dnut of the Republican club at North Slaplc Qrovt school houso asked the commlttqo to cali off the rally billed for that place tonight. The roads are very' bad.|and if it contiuues raining wvfaith appears very ptobablc, a good cro^d could not be expected. '^Although the wind was howling, the r&in falling in.torrents and the .street;: almost impassable with mud. tbe Republican meeting at Savonburg last night was well attended and the aud ience was' one of the most cnthuiias- tic of the campaign. On accotint of tl^e storm it w-as not expected that there would be many on liand but over 200 people braved tlie elements to hear the Republican doctrine preached. ', The speaker of evening was At- toa-ney General Jackson. With: an address filled with statistics and. interesting facts showing why the Republican party should again be placed in control. Jlr. Jackson struck a responsive chord. His every utterance commanded the etrictcst attention and he was interrupted-frequently by enthusiastic applause. The attorney general made much the same speech that he did at LaHarpe. presenting the reason^ why Republicanism is the best thing for the country, and at the same time showing the fallacy of the issues UiKin which Mr. Bryan Jiopes to secure his election. The crowd and interest indicated tiiat Savoubrug Is a stronghold of Repablicanism. I<^)llowing the attorney general judge Foust and A. F. Florence spoke. They were greeted heartily, both making strong addresses. MINGLE. HAD VISITOR IN JAIL. Passed asjHH Wife, but She Was in Wichita.
