Now some of the gentlemen here smile scornfully when Charles Sumner;s name is mentioned as a rival to General Grant's Presidential aspirations, but let them remember that "time works wonders." We little thought that "such things could be" a few years ago, as now do actually appear. It is but a question of time. The meeting of the Cincinnati convention will determine the question, and there are thousands and thousand who are waiting for the choice of the Cincinnati Republican Convention, and I say here, gentlemen, and to the lobby, that it does not seem at all wonderful to me that Charles Sumner should be nominated for President by this Cincinnati convention, and I would support him even if there were forty thousand Grants.
I do not intend to be the suppliant tool of any party or clique, and to tell you ot the knavery and intrigues of this Grant party. The acting chairman of this convention has been telegraphed to see that the convention "runs right/" He is made the tool in his official capacity. He must see "that the eonvention runs right." Now, what does that sentence mean ?
