On the way to Mr. Connell's house the participants did not for a moment bridle their noise and enthusiasm, but cheered their way up the hill to Mr. Connell's home which was brilliantly lighted. Mr. Connell made his appearance on the lawn and with head uncovered waited fully three minutes for the cheering to subside, the crowd mean while cheering for McKinley, Connell, the flag, sound money and everything Republican. Across the roadway blazed a bonfire made from material which had been gathered en route from the site of a new building. The speech was finally made though a sentence at a time was all Mr. Con nell could do because of the continuous yells of delight. He said: I am not equal to a speech tonight, but If I fulled to say I was not highly flut tered by this visit I would not bo speak iug the truth. "We have met the enemy and they are ours" In a great buttle thut nun Involved more than things political, almost more thun our flag. It has been a battle out of which nutlonal honor has appeared triumphant. We wanted sound money, protection, belter business and no more burning of fluti and we have won all along the line and brought the country out of the dan ger which threatened It. It all means the overwhelming presence of American hon esty and patriotism. While I congratulate you for a great ami glorious victory, It Is not on my own account. We have redeemed national honor and that Is due to Ood's guidance.
