SIXTEENTH and EDDY STREETS, Clicyoniio, yo. FOR THE SECOND TIME. The Hon. Francis E. Warren Again Made Governor.

Nominated by President Harrison Yesterday. Republicans Well Pleased With the Appointment. A Public Demonstration in Honor of the New Executive. The News Received. President Harrison yesterday nominated to the United States senate for governor of Wyoming the Hon.

Francis E. Warren of Cheyenne. The Leader was first apprised of the prooedure by a special telegram from its Washington correspondent, and a few minutes later the Associated Press announced the appointment to the newspapers of the country. A bulletin giving the news was posted at this office and in a very short time several hundred citizens were perusing the few lines. The news was received with genuine delight by Mr.

Warren's supporters. There was much handshaking and a great display of genuine enthusiasm. At 1 a reporter called on Mr. Warren with Judge Bergman and A. J.

Parshall. Several others were present to congratulate the new executive and the first lady of the territory. Among the number was Receiver Garrard, of the land office. Secretary Shannon Ailed later to pay bis respects. During the visit numerous congratulatory messages were received by telephone and telegraph.

On departure Mr. Warren accompanied his callers to the gate. F. E. Addoms halted to shake the hand of the nominee, while F.

8. He bard, W. M. Masi and a number of others happened along. All were very earnest in their congratulations.

Numerous friends were en route to the residence, and quite a large party had assembled before the first visitors were fairly away. The callers were in every instance most cordially greeted. An Arrangement Meeting. About noon a number of Republicans conceived the idea of holding a meeting to arrange for a jollification at once and a subsequent formal ratification. Two hours later the office of the Cheyenne real estate agency in the Post block was filled with the faithful keen to do honor to Mr.

Warren. Ixiuis Kirk presided at the meeting, while A. J. Parshall recorded the proceedings. These committees were named: On jollification and formal ratification to occur on confirmation of Mr.

Warren's nomination A. Slack, H. G. Hay, Dr. H.

J. Maynard. Willis VanDevanter, IL Donzelman, Wm. Sturgis. and Wm.

R. Schnitger. S. Hebard, Ed T. David and John Roberta.

Bonfire and M. Masi and T. B. Adams Sturgis, 11. G.

Hay and H. Donzelman. Manager Rhodes of the opera house tendered the celebrants the use of the Unde Vabin good one for last outbreak. The offer was accepted with a vote of thanks. After the business of the meeting bad been transacted Capt.

N. J. proposed three cheers for Governor Warren. They were given with a will. Judge Bergman suggested a repeater for President Harrison, and everyone responded heartily.

The cheering in the closed building was almost deafening. The committees had enlisted in earnest, and commenced work at once. Two brass cannon were brought from Fort Russell. Material for a great bonfire was collected and piled in the center of the street near the opera house, while every good and true party man was advised to be present and invitations were extended to the public at large. Many flags were displayed in honor of the event of the day.

John Chase draped the entire front of his Inter Ocean. Sixteenth and Ferguson streets presented a Fourth of July appearance. Banners were resurrected and the dealers in bunting did a rushing business. The Demonstration. For an impromptu affair the demonstration in honor of Mr.

Warren last evening was a howling success. The clans gathered at the opera house, where the brass cannon belched fire to the discomfort of nervous people and the bonfire sent a dense volume of smoke heavenward. Captains and Smith commanded the artillery in the regulation military style. W. M.

Masi and Louis Kirk massed the marchers. The splendid 17th infantry band was very appropriately placed at the head of the column, with prominent citizens bearing torches next. Then came the musical more light carriers. A drum corps and miscellaneous phalanx brought up the rear. At the Carey block a stack of campaign torches were pressed into service by the promeHaders.

This was the line of march: Seventeenth to Ferguson, north to Eighteenth, west to Eddy, south to Seventeenth, cast to Ferguson, south to Sixteenth, cast to Central avenue, north to Seventeenth, east to the mansion, corner Seventeenth street and Warren avenue. There was a magnificent display of lurid red fire at the Inter Ocean corner. Cheering commenced here and is continued to the end of the trip. The shouts were paiticularly in passing Mr. place of business.

At the residence of M. Masi there was more red fire. The post adjutant had instructed the band master to. leave bis dirge music at the garrison, and the order was dutifully obeyed. The serenade at the residence and the music given while marching was very fine and of an order calculated to wake merriment and elevate spirits.

After the rendition of several airs by the bands, Messrs. Adams and Masi were delegated to request the new executive to at once prepare and deliver an extemporaneous speech. Attorney General Donzelman mounted an improvised stump, and securing the attention of the serenaders and callers, formally presented Mr. Warren, who had been greeted with cheers upon his appearance on the balcony of his residence. He said: "Friends and Fellow Citizens I am indeed very glad to see you, but I propose to make a speech to-night.

The remarks shall be reserved for some future time. My heart is too full to talk now. I can only invite you one and all to come into my house and afford me an opportunity to grasp you by the hand. All come The tremor in the voice changed to a hearty tone during the utterance of the final sentences of the brief speech. The Reception.

More than 51)0 citizens, including the best people of the city, to the invitation to enter. Mr. Warren and his wife extended welcome to all and a surfeit of refreshments were served as the people stood in the elegantly furnished parlors. The visitors continued to arrive and depart until nearly midnight. Gen.

Mizner and a party from the fort were there. Mrs. Warren was assisted by a number of society ladies. The hospitality was of the genuine sort. Mr.

Warren was frequently called from handshaking to sign for telegrams or receive the floral offerings which were constantly arriving: The finest of the latter was a magnificent token from John Chase, This was a massive affair of rare flowers. In red buds were the words. An immense calla lily was the center piece. This offering elicited the admiration of all and was especially prized by Mr. Warren.

Hiogrnphicnl. The small town of Hinsdale, is the birthplace of Francis E. Warren, who is still a young man, being now in his 44th year. His boyhood was spent among the rugged people of that section, where he was regarded as a promising lad of sterling qualities. When a boy of 17 Mr.

Warren responded to his call and enlisted in Company of the 49th Massachusetts volunteers. His military record is an unusually good one and truly remarkable for one so young. He was promoted for bravery until a sword hung from his side. For three years he has been an active member of John T. Reynolds post, G.

A. R. of this city. At Port Hudson Corporal Warren and a comrade answered a call lor volunteers to perform some desperate mission and were successful in the undertaking. It was a case of forlorn hope and the display of courage was commended by all conversant with the facta.

Cheyenne acquired a valuable citizen and the territory a man who was to become a potent factor in its development and advancement when Mr. Warren cast his lot here in the spring of 1868. He had wandered about the West for twelve months and concluded to make the Magic City his permanent abiding place. He became a clerk in the furniture establishment of A. R.

Converse, ana by industry and frugality was soon enabled to pur chase an interest in the growing business. Mr. Converse gave his attention to other commercial enterprises, and in course of time the young clerk became proprietor of the house. Ho was, and still is for that matter, primarily a business man. He is now a in nearly all of the ten counties of Wyoming, president of the Warren Mercantile company and Warren Live Stock company, a director of the Cheyenne and Northern railway, and a stockholder in the electric light and gas companies of this city.

The new appointee has been in public life for many years. lie has been territorial treasurer, president of the legislative council and twice a member of the assembly, chairman of the territorial Republican committee, for two terms a Cheyenne aiderman and once mayor of the city. The Wyoming Republicans on one occasion tendered him the nomination for delegate in congress, but he declined for business reasons. With Mr. Warren it is a case of born again in a gubernatorial way.

President Arthur made him executive in February, 1885. upon the death of Governor Hale. De remained in the chair about two years. The new executive says that in the administration of the office he shall know neither sections nor Democrat or Republican. Congratulations by Wire.
