fall for John Oi Cbaney for congress believiag that his course tn the house at representa tives thus far has been that he Is justly entitled to n election at the hands of the people of the Second Indiana dis I was In the United States navy as mate on the Galatea and and I have been especially interested in Chaneys attitude toward the soldiers ana the It appears to me that his record in congress Is proof that he and sincerely the friend of the and the sailors t and I know from my personal observation thiit he JIM given best endeavors to their welfare without asking their politics His position on the invalid pension committee has made It pos sible for htm to do the things for the soldiers that he has in his heart to In I will say that while the question of his kindness to the Union
