O a 1?devoted to the interests of find of Loren county. % vol. , Waken county la a dials a thit Buday october 7, 1897. Us Bill 41. A hon. J. Frank Hanly foe the u. S. Senate. Or. Hanly s friends Here Are delighted to know that he has consented to be a candidate for thi United states Senate to succeed senator tui pie. For several Mont lis his friends including May of the leading politicians of the state have been urging him to Jermit them to press his claims for that place. Las week matters became so shaped that it was necessary fur him to either be or not be a candidate. After very carefully consider ing the conditions and prospects or. Hanly consented that the papers announce him As a candidate. Warren county and her people Are proud of Hanly a because a claim him. It was in this county that he landed a ragged hungry penniless boy of fourteen years poor in everything but brains integrity and undaunted courage. I was Here among Wiir be Ojile that he Laid hold of every Opportunity that presented itself. He employed his time at All kinds of work and studied All kinds of Good books never Idle. We saw him transformed from that boy into what he is today a scholar a profound Law yer a statesman and an orator without a Superior in the state of Indiana. No Man in Public life in Indiana today has won his place against such adversities As has or. Hanly. Ten years ago with his own hands he was making tile drains for the Farmers of this county and ii. School season he taught school. H was never ashamed or afraid to Dot whatever presented itself provided it was honest honorable and elevating. In 1884 he began his career As a political orator and he has Ever since rapidly grown in popularity until today he is acknowledged to be the equal of any political orator in tie state. We have tried him in Many capacities a As a citizen As a Christian As a teacher As a lawyer and As a statesman and he has never betrayed a Trust but has always filled our most a Siguine Hopes and expectations. In 1890 we elected him a member of the state Senate and by his course there we Learned that he was a Wise Law maker. In 1894 the republicans of the old ninth District sent him to Congress and by the masterly manner in which he filled that place we now know him As a statesman worthy any political Trust. Few men Ever entered Congress who in a single term created As Strong and favourable an impression As he and now the demand for his candidacy for the United states Senate comes from All parts of the state and from the very Best people. The Republican press of this congressional District is a unit for him. The masterly Campaign he made throughout the state in 1896, has made his name a household word in every family of Indiana. He is a Man with a wonderfully Well developed and Well trained mind full of Power and Manly vigor. He is a Republican because he has Faith in the principles of that party. He is in touch with the people. Should he be successful there will be no Mau in the Senate closer to the hearts of his constituents or More eager to serve them Well. The review is sincerely glad to be allowed the privilege of presenting the claims of such a saudi Date and every citizen in Warren county should feel a sense of Pride and gratification that one so near to us is knocking at the door o the United states Senate and we should see to it that men Are sen to the legislature who will be Able to press or. Hanly s candidacy to a successful termination.
