Breckinridge Given an Ovation

Monterey, Ky., June 23. - Over 3,000 people assembled here today to hear Colonel Breckinridge. It was the largest meeting ever known in Owen county, the home of E. E. Settle, the opposing candidate. People came by all sorts of vehicles, many on foot. Colonel Breckinridge was greatly moved by the reception during the day and the demonstration in the grove. He made one of his most eloquent speeches, never referring to Owens or Settles. After speaking over two hours, he shook hands with hundred, the ladies being given the first chance with him.
