Mr. G. W. Albright, the colored orator of Kansas, familiarly known as the Kansas Cyclone, an able, and intelligent gentleman, was the next to address the voters upon the leading and general issues of the national campaign. He was accorded respectful attention and was often applauded and cheered.

During his discourse he expressed regrets that there were not more of his race present. There was, however, quite a number of the more intelligent ones in attendance.

After finishing his address he gave his address to some colored gentlemen and told them if they wished information upon any of the campaign issues he would be pleased to have them call upon him and he would gladly give the information.

There were no bouquets, but upon adjournment Mr. Albright was the recipient of an elegant watermelon.
