HONORS FOR SUMMIT COUNTY.
The announcement is made in our
new? columns to-day that Akron's
distinguished lawyer and citizen,
Hon. C. R.. Grant, will boa candi
date before the Democratic State
Convention for the nomination for
Justice of the Supreme Court.
For several months Judge Grant
has been urged by his friends here
and elsewhere throughout the State
to allow his name to go before the
convention. It was understood sev
eral weeks ago that he had yielded
to the advice of his friends, but the
first public announcement of his can
didacy was made today.
Several days ago.a local paper an
nounced that Mayor W. 33. Young
would be a candidate for the Demo
cratic nomination for Attorney Gen
eral. In an interview, published
elsewhere, the Mayor defines his
position in the matter.
Of course Summit county cannot
get two places upon the State ticket.
The Democbat is satisfied, from its
interview with Mayor Young, that
he is not an avowed candidate for
Attorney General and will not oppose
Judge Grant in obtaining the
honor of a nomination for Supreme
The Democrat was informed today
that if Senator J. Park Alexander is
defeated for the nomination for State
Senator he will be a candidate ior
Representative. If the Machine ex
pects to bar the Hon. J. Park from
every avenue of access to the Legis
lature, it will not have much time to
nttend to Mark's campaign.
The Hon. H. C. Sanford claims to
be the only logical candidate for the
Republican nomination for Repre
sentative, and Is inflating his boom
for all it is worth. Wonder what will
happen should political exigency
force the Hon. J. Park Alexander
into the race for Representative?
"Woed is being passed around that
the City Commissioner deadlock
will be broken next week. If this is
so, Mayor Young and Judge Ander
son do not seem to be on the inside

On the Duty of the Democratic Convention
. No Bossism.
To the Editor:
The attitude of the Democratic
party, as shown by it latent declar
ation of principle, the Chicago
platform, is very fair to labor, both
organized and unorganized. That
platform demands the passage of
"such laws as may be necessary to
protect labor in all its rights." Speci
fically, it demands the passage- of a
law to secure arbitration of differ
ences between employers engaged in
interstate commerce and their em
ploye. It denounces "government
by injunction as a new and highly
dangerous form of oppression by
which federal judges, in contempt of
the laws of states and the rights of
citizen';, become at once legislators,
judges and executioners." And it
approves legislation providing for
trials by jury in certain caes of con
tempt. Relying upon that declaration of
the Democratic party, viz. "we de
mand the passage of such laws as
may be necessary to protect labor in
allits rights," labor has aright to
ask and to expect that specific de
mands for such legislation as labor
through its organizations desires
will be incorporated in future Demo
cratic platforms. And labor has
moreover a right to ak and to ex
pect that laboring men, who have a
real and sincere sympathy excited by
practical knowledge of the condi
tions of the masses, shall be chosen
in part to carry out the declarations
of the nlatform. Whatever may lie
said of the character of Senator Quay
of Pennsylvania, he told tho truth
once when he said that "the people
most deserving of representation and
most in need of legislative protection
are the farmers, the small store
keepers, the artisans and the lab
Democrats, if you ardently desire
the can-vine out of Democratic
principles, go as the senator says he
does "into the barricades with the
bourceoise and the men in blouses."
Consult with them, place upon them
a part of the burden and responsibil
ity of government, and you will nave
"a government of the people, by the
people and for the people" in fact as
well as in name. Labor has surely
learned the folly of expecting any
legislation, or action to enforce legis
lation in its interest from the Repub
lican party. Labor has seen one of
its favorite measures (the eignt
hour law) strangled recently in the
Republican senate: it has seen under
n JiopubUcfliu-ajiillillUtration -th
upbuilding and multiplication of
trusts, which play with the
people as a cat plays with a
mouse. It sees even now Republi
can conventions declaring against
trusts but endorsing the Adminis
tration and standing by the policies
which built them up.
It sees a Republican Adninistra
tion engaging the people in a war of
conquest, attempting to commit
them to apolicyof imperialism, with
its.gttendant.evil, militarism, while
claiming a monopoly on patriotism.

Witnesses So Charged Before
DAVIS ATT.UKKll THE STANDARD.
The Ohio Producer ami Itelincr Made
bouic Strong Charges Oil I.eliner West- (
gate of Tiltmlllr, Pa., Told of His Kx
pcrieucc In Competing For ltusiness.
Washington, Jnue 10. Ex-State Sen
ator Theodore F. Davis of Ohio, both a
producer and a refiner of pretrolenm,
'located at Marietta, gave testimony be
fore the industrial commission winch
dealt with the operations of the Stand
ard Oil trust and the Argand Oil com
pany. He complained of the discrimin
ations of the railroad companies, s..f ing
that the manager of some of the loads
were interested in rival companies and
the oilier coniintnies were so favored
rlut his company had been compelled to
suspend liu-iiies.. This discrimination
was ;il.-u pracli'ed liy the pipe lines
ajrahist- pro,lm-es- who did not control
tho.-e Inns. In such cases they were,
also unable Io sejure fair rates lrom rail
roads, forving the conclusion that the
railroad companies were concerned for
tho success ot pipe fines.
Mr. Davis said rlmt the Standard copi
pauy had been able to come into the con
trol of most of the producing area and this
was accomplished through co-operating
companies. He said that as a refiner he
had pnrclia.si 0 conside. le oil from the
Standard company ami that it was the
ciistom of the Standard company to.
charge up its losses' of oil by fireleak
age, etc., in any given district to the
purchasers in that district, distributing
the los among them. Healbo said that
the Standard company had such close
lelution-. with the railroad companies
and so completely controlled the mar
kets as to lender it almost impiacticable
for any other i eliiiur to enter upon the
manufacture of such la-products as
Ke st ited that on one occasion a ship
ping clerk ot his linn had been ap
proached by the Standard company and
offered money lor information as io ihe
business of the concern. This scheme
had failed, owing to the fidelity of tho
clerk, but. tho firm became satisfied
that the Standard company had in

Every shipment was followed up and
the consignees approached with oilers

also resorted to duplicating his brands
and tending out under them inferior
articles of oil. Tho competition had at
: The magnificent revival of true De
I mocracy. which gave birth to the
I Chicago platform, must be continu
ed. The working masses will sup
port the Democratic party in a fight
against trusts, franchise steals and
special privileges. They will sup
port the Democratic party in a fight
against militarism and world con
quest. But the day has gone by
when they will blindly support and
yield allegiance to leaders whom
they cannot trust. It would seem
as though opposition to bossism was
useless judging by tire result of the
recent Republican convention, but
that convention did not in any sense
represent the people; least of all
. wage working people.
I In the Summit County Republican
convention reprentative laboring
men who were named to go as dele
pates to the State convention were
i simply ignored and ground up by the
Machine. The Republican party has
j no use for the labor element except
on election dav to have them inarch
up to the polls, like regular soldiers,
stepping to the music of Hannahs
; band, to put in their little vote for
your Uncle Mark's choice. This is
the simple truth which all the prat
tle about prosperity and protection
to working men cannot hide. The
brazen cheek of the Hanna-Cox gang
in putting an anti-trust plank
in their platform can only
be compared to that of a foot-pad
who would offer to escort one through
a dark alley. The remark of Mayor
Jones of Toledo, when asked wheth
er he would run independently for
Governor, "I might- some time, if
there was occasion. 1 don't see the
occasion for it right away" simply
means that if the Democratic party
fails in its duty as to candidates and
nlatform, the occasion will have
come. The Democratic party is
solemnly pledged and it is being led
by men who will carry out the
pledges. Let no man he nominated
for Governor who must be adjusted
to the platform; no man for Attor
ney General who is an ingrain cor
poration advocate, and no man for
Supreme Court Judge who" believes
only in "government by injunction."
Labor's demands are not unreason
able. The abolition of the prison
contract system, for instance. The
passage and enforcement.whefe they
now exist, of eight-hour laws for all
persons engaged on public work done
directly or by contractors and sub
contractors, would only be giving
equal rights to all public employes,
JoxjvhatLofficial or even clerk is re
quired to work more than eight
hours? Public ownership of public
utilities has already been advocated
in part by the Democratic party.
The Initiative and Referendum was
demanded by the last State conven
tion of the Democrats of Ohio. La
bor has been pegging away at thest
things in an impractical way for
years and though "the constant
dropping of water will wear away
the hardest stone;" it will take
sledge-hammer blows to batter down
the rocks of bossism. O. S.
last uecome so fierce that'his house had
been compelled to go out of business.
Mr. Davis was followed by Mr. T. U.
Westgate, an oil refiner at Titusville,
Pa. Among other companies in which
he is interested is the Pure Oil com
pany. He said that in both New York
and Philadelphia the Standard com
pany iiad reduced tho prico of oil imme
diately upon his company entering the
held, and that owing to this reduction
oils were now 1 ciug sold in both mar
kets at prices which render the business
unprofitable. Mr. Davis related some
of the particulars of his competition
with the Standard company, saying
that the Stiudard managers kept a
strict account of all the oil sent out by
rivals. His company was in the habit
of protecting customers where neces
sary. His general policy was to try to get
only a small percentage of the business
in each place, and ho had found that so
long as ho pursued this plan prices could
be held up, bat that if he endeavored to
increase the quantity prices were imme
diately reduced with the intention of
driving him out of the field. Mr. West
gate had no doubt that the Standard
company know each morning just what
his shipments had been the day before.
He could not say that the railroads sup
plied the information, but he knew that
it did not go from his own oilice. He.
also told of. instances in which the
Standard company had .made efforts to
entice his men from him ,and alsTi -of
threats Fit cases-where the competition
was sharper than the Standard com
pany enjoyed. s
Mr. Westgate said Jhe raihoads had
been very careful about giving "rebates

OIL AND GAS
To be Drilled For at
Stock Company Organized Some
thing About Local Field.
Brittain, Ohio.. May 21, lfeSS.
To whom it may concern, and espec
ially to citizens of Summit County:
Oil has been produced for nearly
half a century in several states of the
union. It is classed as a deep min
eral, and it certainly lies very deep
here in Summit County, for an un
limited number. o. attempts have
been made to reach it. Four wells
have been drilled in the city of Ak
ron. One of them was located in the
Sixth ward ; one at the Cascade mills;
one in the southern limits of the city
and one on Perkins hill the depth
not exceeding 2,300 or 2400 feet in
any instance. Besides, other wells
have been placed. Brewster Bros.,
have gone down about 1,300 feei.
There i one in the celery Jield at
Greentown, 2,400 feet, beside a num
ber at Sufileld, Portage ..County,
Ohio., but all to no purpose.
The drilling of such a number of
wells in such, proximity was the
magnet that attracted Mr. H.D. Van
Campen to this territory,and as a sur
face reader, he, too, concluded that
deep minerals abound here. It
was suggested to the citizens of
Wadsworth that a company be
formed and a deep well drilled and
it sufficed, ho agreeing to go 2,000
feet or more if necessary, ami it was
necessary, for the well was drilled
to the depth of 3,2i5 feet, disclosing
the fact that an enormous bed of
salt was at their disposal. Today
Wadsworth people are reaping their
reward, for it was the means of
placing one of the finest salt plants
extant in their vicinity with a daily
out-put of from five to ten hundred
Eventually one of the capitalists of
Akron secured the services of the
same driller, or, rather, formed a co
partnership, and placed a well at
Brittain, Springfield township, bum
mit county, Ohio, known as the Sei
berling well, which was drilled to the
depth of 3.51G feet, or thereabouts,
here, too, penetrating a salt bed of
more than 300 feet. The great drill
was pushed onward and on the 8th of
November, 1892.it was placed in both
oil and gas at the depth of 3,516
After a delay of one month and
three days it became apparent to those
interested that they could not work
harmoniously and after a littlo alter
cation the matter drifted into the
hands of what was known as "The
Akron Gas Sr Oil company." Tho
failure on their part to further de
velop the field was the cause of we
local boys stepping to the front, in
defense or rescue of the field, for we
were and are in possession of real
estate close to this well and having
lad free access to the derricks,
tnow all concerning the well and its
output. We could not suffer or sac
rifice further developments, for we
had witnessed the workings of the
well; had seen them bailing oil in
quantities great enough to convince
us of the probable merits of the well.
The well was witnessed to have three
natural flows, continuing for twenty
minutes at a time, or thereabouts.
This was simply miraculous, owing
to the disadvantages under which it
was working. The oil producing
rock had simply been reached, not
drilled into but a very few blows, and
just as soon as the gas was noticeable
tho engine was reversed or brought
to a stand-still. As no leases were
taken before drilling began, and be
causeof this delay there accumulated
2,700 feet of this liquid in the well,
which was a hindrance and a serious
damage. An attempt later on to
drill the well deeper proved futile.
The tools would float and no blow
could be struck.
One of the principal millers and
grain buyers of Akron called at the
well and was heard to say: "What
a waste ! I never became wealthy by
such practices. You outfht to be
served with an injunction. This oil
ougtnot to be allowed to come down
the river, it gets into our forebays
and is damaging."
Oomervative parties were heard to
say: "T believe there are one
thousand barrels of oil, in that pool
or ravine." It was'.repdcted that oil
had been hauled to and emptied into
the- well. We simply say it was im
possible to have done anything of
tho kind without having been seea,
jienrcl .or- leaving some tracks. Jn
conclusion concerning the" well, we
ask: "WlnJre could oil have been
secured?" for this oil "cannot 'be
duplicated anywhere or by any field.
Quite an amount was carried to the
Empire Mower fc Reaper manufac
tory and Used on their fast running
innchines, giving the best 'of satis
faction as a lubricator. The B. & O.
sestec! it on their car journals, pro
nouncing it equal to oils retailing at
fifty cents per gallon. A chemist or
Pittsburg pronounced it the best that
had ever been brought to his notice.
Comparing it with Lima oil he said:
"One barrel is worth ten of Lima's
oil." In the face of all these facts
wo could idly afford to allow this en
terprise to go by the board, hence
wo secured tho services of Air. Van
Campen and drilled another well
known as the Brittain well. This,
too, was drilled to the depth of thirty
five hundred and eight feet. This
being located up "a stream on ground
nbout twenty-one feet higher than
the Seiberliug well necessitated a
deep well. Unfortunately our cable
snnpped before reaching the goal.
This well was scientifically cased,
there being no water in the well ex
cepting thnt which was poured in for
drilling purposes. A responsible
company is being formed to drill a
well at Barberton, Ohio, capital
stock $12,000. More than half is al-
rendy subscribed for. five thousand
acres of leased land are included.
We invite the attention of the public
to this enterqrisc. We ask you to
give it your consideration, and hope
for an immediate response.

Philadelphia, June 10. At a special
meeting of the board of directors of the
Pennsylvania railroad A. J. Cassatt of
this city was elected president to suc
ceed the late Frank Thomson.
James McCrea, of Pittsburg, first vice
president, was chosen a member of the
boaid of directors to fill tho vacancy
created by Mr. Cassatt's election to the
Mr. Cassatt's elevation to the presi
dency of the great corporation with
which he had been connected for so
many yeai.s caused surprise in railroad
and fiuaucial circles, as it had been by
many anticipated that First Vice Presi
dent" Green or one "of the other vice
presidents would secure the honor. The
board of directors, however, were unan
imously of the opinion that tho emer
gency latiscil by the sudden death of
Mr. Thomson could best be met by Mr.
Cassatt, and that gentleman, after some
hesitation, concluded to accept the re
sponsibility. Mr. Cassatt is conceded on all sides
to be the man best fitted for the posi
tion Like Mr. Thomson he has been
connected with tho road since his boy
hood and has a thorough knowledge of
the road, its resources and business.
In 1SS-J he resigned as first vice presi
dent of the company, but was subse
quently iuduced to become a director
and since then ho has taken a most
active interest in tho affairs of the com
pany, occupying m fact tho position of
managing director or "power behind
It is no disparagement of Mr. Thom
son's ability or power to say that Mr.
Cassatt's authority in the management
of the road was equal to that of the
late president. So that, in view of this
fact.'Mr. Cissatt is no stranger to tho
duties that he will bo called upon to
perform in his new position. Mr. Cas
satt is perhaps the best kuown railroad
man in the country and he will un
doubtedly be a leader in trunk line
The election to a directorship of
James McCrea, who has charge of the
lines west of Pittsburg, brings to the
board a strong railroad man to take tho
place of Mr. Cassatt in that body.
Alexander Johnston Cassatt was born
in Pittsburg Dec. S, 1839. His father,
Robert S.' Cassatt, was for a number of
years closely identified with the finan
cial and industrial Interests of Western
Penusvlvaimi and was tho first mayor
of Allegheny City.
A. J. Oaisatt received his primary
education in the schools of Pittsburg,
took ii liberal course in the famous Uni
versity of Heidelberg, in Germany, and
in lSJ'.t graduated as a civil engineer
from the Reusslaer Polytechnic college
at Troy, N. Y. In ISiil he settled in
Philadelphia, was appointed a roadman
on the Philadelphia division of the
Pennsylvania railroad. Two years later
he was made an assistant engineer, and
in 18S4, when the Pennsylvania rail
road assumed control of the Philadel
phia and Erie road, Mr. Cassatt was
transferred to Rcuovn, Pa., and ap
pointed resident engineer of the middle
loiter he was appointed manager in
charge of the Warren and Franklin
.railroad, a branch road in the oil regions5,
and afterward was made assistant gen
eral superintendent of the Philadelphia
and Erio railroad. In 18GG Mr. Cassatt
was transferred to Williamsport, with
the title of superintendent of motive
power and machinery of the Philadel
phia and Eric, and in 1807 he was ap
. pointed to the like position on the
Pennsylvania railroad, with headquar
ters at Altooua. In 1870 ho was made
general superintendent and in 1871, ,
when thu Pennsylvania raid leased tho
United Railroads of New Jersoy, ho
was appointed general manager of all
the Pennsylvania lines.
After the death of tiio president, J.
Edgar Thomson, a reorganization of tho
higher officials becamo necessary, aud
in 1874 Mr. Cassatt was advanced to tho
position of third vico presideut, which
oflico ho held until 1880, whon, upon
tho retirement of Presideut Scott and
Uie accession to tho presidency of Mr.
Roberts, he becamo first vice prosident.
In September, 1882. he resigned his high
oilice and retired to private lifo, but a
few years later he was iuduced to accept
a seat in tho directory of tho company,
and remained a member of tho board
until his elevation to tho presidency.
