Carl Abram, president of the
Young Men's Republican club, called
tho banquetors to order, and said
tho Young Men's Republican club
stood for tho motto doing things.
Ho described Lincoln as "rising
from tho, lowest origin sooially that
wo can conceive poor white trash."
Ho said tho club was hoping to
mond tho discords in tho Republican
party. He argued that there ought
to bo more compromises to effect
tho perpetration of Republican prin
ciples. Ho quoted Fred 13. Smith,
tho Y. M. C. A. orator, to tho effect
that there woro cannibals in tho oo-
posltion party wh6 would eat up tho
Republicans. Ho quoted Lincoln to
tho effect that ho thought at ono
tlmo that seven-eighths of tho Amor
lean peoplo woro trying to oat up
tho ono-olghth Ho eulogizod thf
legislatlvo record of Hal- D. Patton
as a member of tho legislature and
saving tho Dairymen's bill.
Mr. Patton was rocolvod with
cheers and applaupo. Ho told of tho
formation of tho Young Men's Re
publican club. It hnd 678 mcmbors
and there was not i sorehead among
them. Tho organization stood for
good, clean and progressive politics.
(Cheors and applause.) Ho. pro
posed a standing toast to tho first
Republican president Abraham
Lincoln. All present aroso and
drank tho toast "A government of
the people, by tho peoplo, and fer
tile people." (Cheers and ap
plause.) Hon. O. N. McArthur was next In
troduced and held his hearors spell
bound. Ho called tho roll of popu
lar heroes and champions of reform
ations for all time and concluding
with thevsubject of his , loulogy.
When ho referred to tlio clash of
arms that resounded throughout the
land for "ono country and ono flag,"
ho was greotted with prolongod
cheers. His financial honesty, his
storllng Integrity and his great loud
ness of heart, were his greatest
traits. , His spefceh throughout was
eloquent and rang truo In every
sentence, Ho quoted from Lincoln's
great speech at Gettysburg, when ho
prayed, "that government of the
peoplo, by tho peoplo, and for tho
people shall not perish from the
John Heltzol hammered the sins
,qf . the, non-partisans, """comparing
them to tho offspring of his Satanic
Majesty, etc., etc. His remarks
wero well received and well taken.
Chas. L. McNary noxt spoke of
Lincoln as a lawyer. Ho was ono
of tho few who was reared and bred
in tho law, and yet died an honest
man. (Laughter.) Ho did not havo
oven tho small opportunities wo glvo
a limn In Salem. Ho told sovornl
stories Illustrative of Lincoln's char
acter. Back of nll Lincoln had a
natural instinct of justico. Ho was
repeatedly cheered and applauded
during his speech.
Dana H. Allen recited Lincoln's
speech at Gettysburg, and tho whole
audionco aroso and cheered him nt
the closo. All folt Inspired nnow to
dedicate themselves to tho prlnclplo
"thnt govornmont of tho peoplo, by
tho peoplo and for tho peoplo shall

Walter WInslow discussed a phaso
of Lincoln's llfo that is not ofton
handlod at such banquets. Lincoln's
foreign policy and his policy of doal
ing with oppressod and conquorod
races like tho Cubans, tho Philip
pines and Porto RlcanB. Ho showod
that tho sontlmonts of tho Declara
tion of Independence oxtended by
the Monroo doctrine, and flrst given
practical application by Lincoln,
woro still tho dominant note of the
Republican party in its doallngs
with all struggling racos.
Tho banquot concludod with throe
cheers for tho great emancipation.
Tho mooting was a groat success and
again demonstrated tho vitality of
