During the last week every tele

Each pamphlet is accompanied by
a circular letter, signed by .1. F.

The letter reads:
"Permit me to hand you herewith

The Union Match company, which
was incorporated unde the laws of
New Jersey Monday with a capital
of $10,000,000. it is claimed, will not
be in any way connected with the
Diamond Match company.. This is
the statement made by the incorpo
rators. Advices from New York
give additional details which tend to
show that this is untrue. It is be-.
lieved that the Diamond Match com
pany has made arrangements with
Edwin Gould, whereby the two
match industries an- combined or
that the Diamond company is be
hind the recently organized corpora
tion and that it will build an immense
plant near Gould's for the purpof-e of
making a light for the complete con
trol of the business.
O. C. Barber, president of the Dia

by a Dkmochat reporter

He politely declined, however, to
divulge the nature of the business
discussed in his conference with Mr.
Hanna, but said that it pertained to
national committee affairs.
In reply to the question, as to who
wns the Administration's choice for
governor he said: "There has been
no disposition on the part of the ad
ministration to favor any particular
man, only so far as it gives its pref
erence to any person who is a loyal
administration man, and one who
has the best interest of his party at
"It has been reported that, the ad-
niinstration has agreed upon Mr.
Nash. Is there any truth in the re
port?" was asked.
"No sir," was the emphatic reply.
"Mr. Nash would be very acceptable
as would a number of other good
men. but the national Republicans

The candidacy of Daugherty was
mentioned, and his acceptability to
the administration asked. On this
subject lie was rather evasive. Col.
Dick replied inanswer to the ques
tion whether or not he was an aspi
rant for the chairmanship of the
State Convention. "1 'haxe never
aspired to that honor, and I am not a

While in Hot Springs, Col. Dick
met Paul Sorg, who until recently
was considered the probable Demo

the Colonel that he had renounced
politics, however, and would herd

"I believe Mr. Sorgis "the strongest

Is It Malaria or Alum?
f Popular Sclcuon Jlonthly.l
Languor, loss of appetite, indiges
tion and often feverishness arc the
common symptoms of a physiological
condition termed "malaria." xVll
these symptoms may be and fre
quently are the effect of the use of
alum baking powders- in food mak
ing. There is no question about the"
poisionous effect of alum upon the
system. It obstructs digestion, pros
trates the nerves, coagulates and
devitalizes the blood. All this has
been made clear, thanks to physi
cians, boards of health, and food coin-
inissous. So "hiirblv ininrinns to i
the health of the eo'mnmnitv" does
the eminent head of the Unlversitv !
or rennsyivania, ur. .Barker, con
sider the alum baking powders, that
he says "their sale should be jirohib
ited by law."
Under these circumstances it is
worth the while of every housewife.
to employ the very little care that is
necessary to keep- so dangerous an
clement from tho food of her family.
A pure cream of tartar baking pow
der, which is tho only kind that
should be used, ought to cost about
forty-five .to fifty cents a pound.
Therefore, if you are paying" much
less, something is wrong; if you are

Twenty Fast Rounds
Were Fought by Maher
Referee Unable to Pick
Men Were Strong
Gus Ruhlin demonstrated Tuesday
night that he is made of champion
He more than held his own with a i
man who has long been looked upon
as a top notcher. and whose exper
ience in the ring commenced long
before the Akron heavyweight knew
what n pair of boxing gloves looked
The fight, under the auspices of
the Lenox Athletic club, New York,
was "witnessed by a crowd of more
than 6,000, made up of representative
sporting men. Maher was a prime
favorite before the battle, odds of 100
tobO being offered on thelrish cham
pion. After the first round even
1 n,on.v was ottered
on Ruhlin. The
j returns, on the light were received in
thiscity. Ruhlin's friends were en-
thusiastic oyer the showing he made.
But little money was posted on the
j result in Akron.
Maher weighed 1S1 pound.- and
f Ruhlin 100. As soon as the referee
called them together for instructions
Maher sized up his opponent and as
he retired to his corner he said:
'I've got an easy thing."
The moment the men shook hands
in the opening round Ruhlin went
right to his man and landed a right
smash on Maher, which almost
closed the optic. A hard right on j
tho body sent Ruhlin to the door and !
he took the limit to get up. Peter
smashed a hard right to the light
eye, bleeding it, and each slugged
until the bell rang.
In the second Ruhlin had all the
better of the argument, ' sending
straight lefts to the face, while Peter
played for the body.
Both of Maher's eyes were well
bunged when he toed the mark for
the seventh round, during which he
failed to make any visible impres
sion on Ruhlin's countenance.
In the eighth, after a long spell of
sparring, Ruhlin sent his right irp
under Maher's chin, but there was
not sufficient force in the ,blow to
count. Toward the end of this round
Ruhlin sent a hard left to Maher's
left eye. drawing blood, and the
Irishman went back with both hands
swinging on neck and body. Maher
was the stronger when the bell rang.
Ruhlin forced the fight in the
twelfth, landiugjioth hands on face
and chest with vigor, while Maher
played continually for the body, with
a lookout for a possible cross on the
jaw. At the beginning of the next
round Ruhlin was by far the strong
er,' but helms very careful. He was
fooled by a feint for the jaw and
ducked into a clean uppercut on the
chin, b.ut Maher's blow lacked steam.
Maher had the call at the bell.
In the sixteenth the pace which
both had maintained up to this time
wns evidently having serious effect
on each of the lighters, and Maher.
contrary to all prediction, as lo-liN
staying qualities, came out of the
mill at the close of- the round by far
the fresher of the two.

for the head, but missed and Maher
got under countering on the wind.
Maher was willing to rush matters,
but Ruhlin stood oil his rushes and
the referee declared it a draw.

Dick, where he remained until after
He was seen Wednesday morning
by a Dkmocrat reporter, and said
that his. conference with Col. Dick
was in regard to regimental affairs.
He threw some light upon the disor
ganization of the Ohio Guard. Col.
Dick told him that the abolishing of
a number of companies of the guards
was the result of lack of funds.
At present the State is in no posi
tion to re-equip the companies; the
extra pressure caused by the recent
war all but depleted the treasury.
Only 34 companies remain under
the present organization, and a coni-
j-p:y constitutes the highest and
! lowest unit or division.
All the officers under tho colonels
will be discharged. The colonels and
the officers of higher rank are held
by reason, of property accountability.
As soon a this is adjusted they will
