The Evening Tribune September, 1891

Hon. Geo. W. McBride.


   Capt. Geo. W. McBride of Grand Haven was in the city today to consult with Gen. Fred S. Hutchinson, in regard to a history of their old regiment, the Fifteenth Michigan Infantry. These two were appointed at the last reunion to present a history of their old regiment at the next reunion to be held in 1892. The captain professed not to be engaged in politics this year, but says there is a very strong sentiment in Grand Haven and vicinity in favor of Ex-Senator Thomas W. Ferry as the candidate for congress this fall. He thinks by reason of past experience and thorough familiarity with congressional work, Mr. Ferry would be able to accomplish a great deal of work for his district in congress. He also has words of praise for Gerrit J. Dykema who is making quite a hustle in the congressional line. The gallant captain hardly looks a day older than when he made the canvass of Ionia county in 1886 in his own behalf. Ionia Daily Sentinel.
