In the absence of the Governor of Illinois, the Lieutenant-Governor, Hon. Andrew Shuman, spoke briefly as follows:

"Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, When the Governor is out of the State, the Lieutenant-Governor is required to act as his official substitute. The Governor is out of the State to-day; and, although I will not presume to act as his substitute on this occasion as a speech-maker, I can nevertheless appear before you as his apologist. When Gov. Cullom left for Washington, a week ago, it was his intention to return in time to be present with you, and to take part in your deliberations. There must be a very good reason for his failure to carry out his intention, or he certainly would have been here as he had promised. He is noted for the scrupulous fidelity with which he fulfils his engage

Ladies and gentlemen, if Gov. Cullom were here, he would, as I do, extend to you, in behalf of our people, the most cordial greeting, and the warmest welcome to our state and city.”

Gov. Bishop, of Ohio, responded on behalf of the delegates from other States. He said it was personally very gratifying to be present on this occasion, for he took a deep interest in a subject so vital to the welfare of our common country. He had the pleasure, one year ago, to welcome many who were now present to
