That after All the Honor was not merely a matter of Good Luck but it was the natural fruit age of or.

He is a Man of courage a Good business Man a splendid lawyer and Terre haute Warrick h. Ripley of Indianapolis and u. S. Lesh of Huntington. So we see another evidence Liam sport and Warren county. We Are assembled Here to Honor the Man who by dint of toil by hard knocks and adversities but always with Pluck and perseverance with a of the High regard in which our Fel j capacity for hard study arose from Low townsman has been held and a lad of obscurity from the ranks True to his constituents. Backed by All these qualifications is it any wonder that he is loved and honoured by those who mingle with him daily he is human and prone to error but for All that he made a Good Plean race for the office for which he was nominated which is no doubt due to the fact that his standing at Home has been sent abroad until his Bounds of Friendship Are no longer confined to Boundary lines of Warren county but they extend throughout the entire state. We Here in Williamsport love him Best because we know him for his True Worth but no matter where he goes his Noble qualifications arrest themselves and new friends Are soon formed because he is a Man. A in the court room saturday afternoon a Public non partisan reception was held in his Honor to show that we All the people honoured and respected him and that we were proud that we had for our neighbor and citizen a Man who could have the Honor of such office bestowed upon him and at the same time place his town and his people among the Foremost in the state. Hon. E. F. Mccabe was made chairman of the reception committee and when the crowd had assembled in the court room Jacob Sheffer an old Soldier and William Cowgill the county clerk were sent to usher our distinguished citizen in the presence of the waiting assemblage. After or. Stansbury arrived the following gentlemen were called upon who responded by making Short Impromptu speeches Hon. E. F. Mccabe. Quot my friends a this meeting has been called for the purpose of welcoming Back to our town its most we see further that it was not a of a common labourer to the High position in the Legal profession that Walkaway.

It. Wayne and Evans that we As his friends and neighbors Are proud of the Honor accorded him that or. Stansbury was highly honoured by his party in receiving the nomination and that the nomination to him was a matter of just Pride. But the speaker said that t. C. Powell. The following is what t. C. Powell had in mind to say at the reception Given or. Stansbury but because his hearing is poor he did not hear chairman Mccabe Call for other speakers it was not Given in Public and we give it publication which shows that the old soldiers Are True As steel to or. Stansbury quot there is a Little Bunch Over Here that would like to Tell How Well they Are pleased Over or. Stansbury s Success. There is not Many of us but we Are mighty and we know when we have a Friend. Or.

He was not a Soldier but it was not his fault As he did not at that time have enough hair on his face. We have known him Ever since he came to Williamsport a poor boy and almost penniless and when he took a position As a clerk in a Little drug store Down near the Railroad and we see him As he entered upon the practice of i Law and we have watched him As he has been an Able Council before the bar of Warren and adjoining counties for near 30 years and we see him As he was an honorable i member of the House of representatives of the state of Indiana and lican convention the grand old party was represented by l ,169 Stalwart delegates who named a splendid ticket. Goo Oricio s be legion a Tiereo. The platform built upon principles that will meet the approval of every Republican in Indiana. Not Only were the town and the Community and or.

Stansbury should be elected to that they have Confidence in him As Loyal to the interests of Williams-1 Ville the three largest in the state a office to which he aspired an Able attorney As a Wise Council it would be an Honor to the great and they believe when elected to sport. The fact that or. Stansbury in a political Trade against our can does not agree with me about poli dilate it seemed for a time As if of Indiana. Tics religion or possibly the Best Victory was blighted and that Hopes method to end the european War is i of his nomination were forlorn in no reason who i should quarrel i deed but i want to say to you my.

Or. John f. Judy. Judy was present at Chester Rossiter is of Irish decent and he is one of those boys that is always looking for something that will be of Benefit to his fellow Man. Recently our Friend had a Little the building to do which did not require or. Stansbury would do the same for us. Quot when we go away from Home and Are asked where we come from we say most people a Ould ask at once quot where in the world is that quot we can now say quot it is the Home of the Republican candidate for attorney in other words or. Stansbury has put Wiki Asport upon the map and Williamsport should recognize the obligation this fact creates. There Are others Here who will gladly ext o press their congratulations to or distinguished citizen or. Ele stans Tansbury and i will therefore Call Bury who has just been selected by the convention of his party As their candidate for attorney general of the great state of Indiana. Quot in thus honouring one of our citizens there has been Honor conferred upon our town and county. Of All the counties adjoining Warren not one of them has received so distinguished an Honor not one of them had a citizen who was nominated for a place upon the state ticket. And this Honor that has thus come to our fellow townsman is the More signal Honor in View of the fact that the major portion of the old ticket was not re nominated. The Only candidates who succeeded in land ing re nomination were or. Stansbury Horace Ellis of Vincennes and upon some of those present to do prosecutor Carl Mehaffey. Or. Chairman ladies and gentlemen a quot when it was announced in the Campaign but recently waged that Warren county would present before the Republican state convention a candidate for attorney general of the state of Indiana Little did we then think that Warren county could Cope with and win against a candidate coming from the second largest City in the state of Indiana. Quot but my fellow citizens we have met Here today to celebrate a Vic quot and i want to say to you my fellow citizens that when the first ballot was taken and it showed 557 votes for or. Stansbury 336 for or. Harris of it. Wayne and 263 for or. Gulley of Danville that reception and when called upon to any very Large nails and he Pur make a few remarks was for a chased a Small Quantity of Shingle moment taken by Surprise but like nails and with a Sledge Hammer the Man of the hour that he is ready i with which to drive them he for any emergency that May come marched Down the Street As proud to hand he arose and told the chairman that he was not an orator and that he had made no preparation whatever but he said in part quot i have known or. Stansbury for a number of years. I am a great Adas a boy with a new tin top and to every fellow he met he said quot see Here Friend i m a Carpenter and i m going to do some a Little farther Down the Street he met a Friend who became inquisitive about the Shingle nails and peeved or. It j Mirer of men who do things men again made me think that the Story of Pluck and Energy of Good Busi Rossiter by getting too personal on from the Mouths of these strange Ness fighting qualities and with a the subject of work and finally men came from the heart and that grim determination to do something when asked what he was really go Success was sure to follow and for himself and those with whom he ing to do with the nails Chet said when the second ballot was begun j Jug associated. 1 have been closely quot i am going to build a crib i bought before the Roll Call of counties was i aupied with or. Stansbury for several these nails i m going to Plant them half Over both or. Stansbury s of j years in business matters and i and raise spikes and Tiow if any of ponets had withdrawn and then have always found him to be very you Farmers have any crib building aftera week s continuous Campaign a proficient in All his transactions.

Our have Fouad him to be a Good lawyer spikes and at a Small Cost and thus thereby placed upon a Good business Nian a Fine mathematician care and conservative in All or. Business matters and i know that Little town a a the map. Quot i fought Long and hard for Stansbury so did Many another of a he has been of valuable service not his Loyal supporters. To him has Only once but Many times to the fallen the Choice of a great party county As its county attorney. I for a great and responsible position believe that the Man who fills the of Trust and Confidence. A am a re exalted position of attorney general publican and i am for him but of the state of knowing him As a Man of Sterling possessed of All Worth and character i would still and i also believe that should or. Be for him no difference what his Stansbury be elected to this office Creed might be. That the state s business will fall quot in conclusion i wish to predict into Safe hands. Or. Stansbury is that in the event of the election of Broad minded Liberal in View and Hon. Ele Stansbury that his ability Quick to grasp the situation Aid reduce the High Cost of this idea grew on or. Rossiter from jest to reality so his friends say and now Regorrah he is thinking very seriously of sowing his entire Lawn in Shingle nails in the Hopes that his Day dreams May i come True and that he can produce Indiana should be several Hundred kegs of spikes. If these qualifications Chet succeeds in his venture the Nail factories of this country May As Well close Down. Will be reflected in the pursuits of made of just the kind of material tory won your fellow townsman the duties of his High office and that it takes for a Man to achieve oar life Long Friend and neighbor that As a heritage to future years Christian Church ser Ceis. I 9 30 a. school. 10 30 a. services. 7 30 p. services. The Public is invited to attend All a vices. P. T Martin pastor. Several Days before the big Indiana Republican state convention convened in Tomlinson Hall at Indianapolis delegates alternate delegates and friends of the various state candidates journeyed to the state Capitol and did whatever they could do in behalf of their favorite candidate to further his chances of nomination and the result was that the Republican state convention of 1916 will go on record As one of the most enthusiastic and most harmonious in the history of the grand old party. In Many instances Friendly contests were waged for state offices but no matter How spirited they became Harmony was the keynote that prevailed at All times. When Tomlinson Hall opened for the preliminary work of the convention it was packed from floor to galleries but when it opened for the nomination of the state officers the gathering is said to have been the largest that Ever assembled within its Walls. The ticket nominated by this convention on last thursday april 6, has so far As can be ascertained met the Hearty approval of every Loyal., Republican throughout the state. The ticket is made up of representative men of the party and As the convention acted for the party the party seems to have accepted the nominees without a dissenting voice and regards them As the very Best men that could have been selected for the offices for which they were named. Coming to the governorship and senator ship there was but Little for the convention to do but to ratify the Choice of the people in the recent primary in the Case of or. Goodrich and Harry new. In the convention proper or. Watson the nominee for the Short term senator ship showed himself to be possessed of a leadership that knows no fatigue. He was popular with the delegates popular with his Home people and the review Republican thinks that the Choice of the convention in recognizing him As the logical candidate for the Short term will add great strength to the ticket throughout the entire state As a Large majority of the delegates were for Watson first last and All the time Long before the convention met and this coupled with the big vote he received at the primary showed that he had a Large following in the Rural districts. Watson is a business Man a politician a splendid orator and Friend of the common people. Watson will make Good where others fail. With Jim Watson on the state ticket it will Appeal to the people especially the Independent voters who Are ready and willing to help overthrow machine politics. The new Republican platform formulated at the late convention is on a line that can t help but find favor with All the Republican organizations this year. It stand for preparedness and demands an adjustment of the Tariff in Accord with True and tried Republican policies. The present administration which was weighed in the balance and found wanting was severely criticised. It also stands for a merchant Marine. It demands strict neutrality toward nations engaged in War but at the same time we must quot observe Good Faith to All nations without unjust discrimination against any. Presi continued on last Page
