THE CLOSING RALLIES AT HENNEESSY.
Republicans, Democrats and Socialists Give a
" Last Word " to the Voters.
A MAMMOTH CROWD MERE LAST SATURDAY.
"Lost they forgot--lost thoy so that when ho comes to Hen
forget,"—each of the political
parties planned for and hold
meetings at Hennessey on Satur-
day, September 14,—the last
Saturday before election day.
Of course, the intention was to
"rivet" the points made by the
various speakers during the cam-
paign so the voter—re inforced
by the intelligence of the cam-
paign orator—would be sure to
go to the jtolls and when there
prepare a ballot that should help
to "save" the country—likewise
to get his party favorite into
The day—a very fine one—was
well calculated to bring a large
crowd of people to town and be
fore the noon hour arrived the
streets began lilhng up with peo-
ple from miles away.
THE UEPUISUCAN MEETING.
Early in the campaign the ro-
nossey, as he said to the writer,
he feels that lie is among old
friends, and his appearance here
is more in the nature of a visit
than as a political mission.
We are unfortunate at this
place in not haviner a public hall
or auditorium of sufficient.size to
accommodate the jx'oplo who want
to listen to a speaker of such
popularity as Mr. Flynn. The
republicans had engaged opera
house several weeks ago, but it
would not hold one-third of ti
people who came to hear Dennis
Elynn. Probably 3(10 people
crowded into tin? opera house-
half of them being compelled to
| stand which made it very un-
comfortable,—despite this he
bold the attention of the large
crowd throughout the two hours
in which lie unmasked the plots
of the constitutional convention
publicans of Hennessey asked | and showed the glaring defects
for and secured the promise of of their constitution. As usual
Hon. 1). T. Flynn that lie wr.uld
give them a date for the Satur-
day before election— preferring
to be billed here by the State
Committee—but if the committee
did not arrange for his appear-
ance here lie would come at that
time on his own arrangement.
Dennis Flynn always meets a
hearty greeting at Hennessey.
It was here that ho began his
first campaign as a candidate
for delegate for congress in 1 HUi?,
an 1 he has kept up the custom—
iiv his speeches—Mr. Flynn
made no statement that he did
not have the necessary docu-
ments to substantiate. His time
was directed to a discussion of
the constitution—showing its
objectionable features to the best
of his ability. In his speech he
showed how much more Oklaho-
ma Territory was paying for
statehood than the Indian Terri
tory is paying. He was fre
quently applauded during his
A martial band fursished the
music for the republicans.
The democrats had also plan-
end grand rallies for Kingfisher
and Hennessey—both afternoon
and evening—the intention being
to have the speakers change
places—those speaking here in
the day to be at Kingfisher at
night, .and vice-versa.
The Enid band was employed
and furnished good music. The
day meeting was held at the
south park and was presided
over by Uev. H. It. Love, pastor
of the First Christian church. A
good sized crowd was in attend
ance, the principal speaker being
Ilou. W. S Whittinghill, of Enid.
M. J. Kane, of Kingfisher was
also present. Mr. Whittinghill,
is one of the orators of the demo-
cratic party who can be relied
on to satisfy a democrat audience
— as he was formerly a republi •
can and as is usual when a man
leaves apolitical party, or a re-
ligious denomination and .-initiates
with another one lie has to lie-
little tho organization he former-
ly belonged to in order to
show cause for his change of
"head." In the campaign of
1894, Mr. Wliittinirhill made a re-
publican speech in the old
j ('rider opera house, advocating
the election of Dennis Flynn and
the republican candidates. He
left the parly in lH'.Mi as a free
silver follower of Bryan and has
j been following liiin "afar off"
The speaking followed a parade
of ladies and gentlemen on horses
preceded by .carriages contain-
ing the speakers and ladies
and gentlemen, all led to the
grounds by the Enid hand.
At night a torchlight procession
took place. The speaking was
done from a dray as a platform,
just north of the First National
Bank Building. The evening
train from the south was several
hours late and Col. Hoffman and
Editor Muliinax had to drive
from Kingfisher, and did not
arrive until late. The crowd
was held by a talk by Elder H. It.
Love, pastor of the Christian
church of Hennessey, and Col.
Hoffman made an eloquentspeeeh
—strictly in harmony with his
party on the constitution and
political questions of the day.
The socialist held a meeting at
four o'clock in the afternoon and
also at night in the Zuher build
ing formerly occupied by the
primary school. The meetings
were addressed by A. VV. Iten-
shaw, socialist candidate for
Congress for the first district
and A. S. LauderniilU, of ElKeno,
socialist candidate for Associate
Justice of the Supreme Court
for the fourth district. Mr.
Laudermilk is credited as being
one of the best posted men in
tjie territory on the principles of
Union Prohibition Meeting.
Last Sunday night a union
meeting of churches in the inter-
est. of the prohibition cause was
held at the M. E. church. A
union choir of the churches, led
by Tom Hughes, furnished good
Hinging. Addresses of 20 min-
utes in length were made by the
Baptist, Methodist, and Chris-
tian churches, and a talk by 11.
K. Bowerman. Eight little boys
bearing banners containing a
prohibition sentiment and scrip
ture verse, marched into the
church, displaying their banners

Hennessey to Lose the Water
E. Brawner says he must
leave town with his sprinkling
wagon in order to make a living
and pay expenses. There are
plenty of business people in this
town of Hennessey to make a
man living wages. But there
are a good many seem to think
he can live and feed his team ou
a small amount and these same
people say it does not benefit
them any but after it is too late
they will see the difference.
Mr. Brawner left, to look for a
new location to day. Where he
will go is not known.

sas, will preach in the Congrega-
tional church uext Sunday, Sept.
