Mr. Pulley s Acceptance Speech
We clip the following from the Huntsville Mercury:
The friends of the successful candidate were wild with enthusiasm and it was five minutes before order could be restored. Mr. Pulley was dragged into the hall and carried to the rostrum. His appearance was greeted with another outburst of enthusiasm and he could not be heard for some time. Mr. Pulley spoke only a few words. He said:
Mr. Chairman and you my fellow countrymen:–There is not one particle of exultation in my heart today for this victory; it is too full of gratitude to you, my friends for this kindly expression of your confidence in me. I want you to know that I realize that I am from this day building before you a character; I hope it will always be prudent, conservative, honest and Democratic. I am for good roads, good schools, higher prices for family products and free silver.

Ad for W. T. Roberts, Undertaker.
