was early this morning before the
conferences held between the leaders
of the Republican party adjourned,
but despite the long and earnest ef
fort made to bring about some sort
of an understanding the situation
today is no easier of solution than last
While Judge Nash,Hanna's favor
ite, is the strongest individual can -didate,
it is doubtful if he can poll
more votes than the combined anti
Hanua opposition, and the move
ment now is to solidify the latter up
on some candidate, either Chairman
H. M. Daugherty or a man named by
the Bushnell-Kurtz people.
To that end the leaders of the lat
ter faction met last night and con
ferred until nearly morning.
Though no fixed decision was
reached Lieut. Gov. Asa Jones of
Youngstowu was given by far the
most consideration and it is not im
probable he will be the first choice..-
The meeting of the Committee on
Credentials to be held tonight will
determine largely the outcome 'of
the contest, and the control of this is
therefore being eagerly sought for.

Two communications from the

satisfied with present quarters.
The first is addressed to the Dkmo
"Akkon, O., May 30, 1899.
We the prisoners incarcerated in
the Summit county jail do humbly
appeal to you as our only hope of
having our wants adhered to. It is
a shame and a disgrace to the city
and tax payers of Summit county
and a crying shame to the prisoners
confined here in jail. We have made
several appeals to the Sheriff but all
of no avail. We are suffering here
in a damp and unwholesome place,
with not half sufficient food and it is
a nightly occurrence to retire, to a
damp cell hungry. There are some
of the prisoners running about on
the cold, damp floor without shoes
or stockings. Such articles have
been asked for time and time again
without being forthcoming and we
humbly request you to make it
known to'the public at large and be
stow a great favor on suffering hu
manity. "We all join in the endorsement of

of Summit county jail, and hoping
to hear from this in the near future
The other letter was written to the
County Commissioners. It follows:
"I beg to call your attention to my
case. I have been incarcerated since
May 4 for common assault.- I am
without sufficient means to pay my
fine and my health is continually
failing in this damp and cold place.
I have been troubled with heart
trouble for years, causing me to be
idle from four to six months a year.
I beg you gentlemen to give this your
attention and to alleviate the
suffering of your fellowman. I pa
tiently await your action.

The state is to be enjoined from

ing was concluded with prayer by
Mrs. H. B. Carter of Cuyahoga
The opportunity was given at the

The Work of an Alleged
Prominent Druggist Arrested Boy
"It seems to be a mighty disgust
ing crisis when evidence against
business men, suspected of doing
illegal business, must be bought, or
carefully planned games of strategy
resorted to to obtain criminal evi
dence against them," remarked a
prominent citizen, the other day
when speaking of the arrests of men
charged with selling liquor on Sun
day. Then, he continued, "these

Attorney Lionel S. Pardee, is
defending Geo. C. Himmelman in
Justice Campbell's court, in. a, case
where this well-known druggist is
accused by Milton S. Bassett, a de
tective residing at lot wale St., witn
selling cigarettes tojhis (Bassett's)
10-year-old nephew, George Shepler.
It is the opinion of the attorney that
Bassett's desire to get a little share
in the costs is vuite as enthusiastic
as his love of protecting the
dear public, for, as the attorney
alleges, Bassett instructed the boy to
iftomnf liirinrr ninrorortoc of. TTllTI
inelnian's, and while the little fellow
did so, loitered about the window
and watched .the transaction. Mr.
Himmelman claims the boy had
been in the habit of buying cnbeb
cigarettes, for an aged relative who
had given him authority to sell to
the boy, stating that they were to be
used by them.
In stating the merits of the case to
the court, Mr. Pardee referred sar
castically to the plaintiff as "a sneak
that goes around and gets little boys
to commit crime."
An effort was made to have Dr.
W. C. Jacobs give expert testimony
regarding the medicinal merits of

A man who is thoroughly convers

Democrat reporter information on
this subject Wednesday. He
said that during the last year
the Central Union had placed
about$35,000incirculation in tin's city
promoting the franchise interests.
The company has a balance on hand
of $100,000 which will be expended in
the same way. He predicted that
the company would soon introduce a

The enormous profits which the
Central Union company has enjoyed
by reason of a practical monopoly,
has resulted in the creation of a rich
fund which is to be used in an at
