Oregon paid a. tremendous tribute of
love and respect to the memory of
Abraham Lincoln last night.
The occasion was a monster banquet

under the auspices of the newly organ

were held forth as the inspiration for
future party success, as well as for fu

coupled with reference to the notable
record of the Republican party fre
quently aroused the banqueters to en
thusiastic roars of approval.
Optimism la I'resent.

Republicans there were confident of
approaching party victory. The fact
that the various elements of Repub
