Increased enthusiasm marks the nearness to the dates set for the two big Republican mass meetings, which are to be held in Evanston this week. This evening there will be two meetings, one in the South End and one in the North End. The meetings will be addresses by Congressman Charles F. Scott, chairman of the Republican national publicity committee and County Commissioner C. R. Chindblom of Chicago.
One of the meetings will be held in Redfield hall, Main street and Sherman avenue, at the same hour as the other will take place in the auditorium of the North End Y. M. C. A., Prairie avenue and Central street. The same speakers will address both meetings.
On saturday night will occur one of the greatest political meetings ever held in Evanston. On that night Gov. Charles S. Deneen, Lawrence Y. Sherman and Attorney General William H. Stead will be the speakers. The meeting will take place in a monstrous tent at the corner of Orrington avenue and University place. This will be the only opportunity during the campaign that these men will appear in Evanston.
Owing to the fact it is expected that thousands of people not only from Evanston, but from the towns to the north and the wards in Chicago will take advantage of the opportunity to hear these three celebrated men discuss the political issues of the day.
