of the Hanna -campaign in
Ohio this fall was "distasteful
to Judge Nash," as it would be like
shaking the "red rag of defiance" in
the faces of the anti-Hanna people.
It was a crushing blow to the hopes
of the opponents of Hanna when
Judge Nash .appeared in person be
fore the Eepublican State Conven
tion last Saturday and requested that
Mt. Dick be chosen to manage the
campaign. Judge Nash may not
have wanted Dick, but Hanna did,
and that was sufficient.
NO CHANCE FOR BOSSISM.
Among the rules just adopted for
the government of the Democratic
party of Ohio the Democratic
State Central committee- has pro
vided a safeguard against such de
plorable exhibitions of bossism as
disgraced the recent Republican con
vention. Section 12 of tlie- rules provides
"All delegates to any state con
ventioli shall be chosen either by a
direct vote of the people at a general
primary or by a convention of dele
gates chosen by, the people at a pri
mary; and no delegation from any
county to the state 'convention ap
pointed by a county committee or
chosen by a mass convention shall
be legal or entitled to a seat in the
And in section Mi the additional
provision is made that,
"County central committees, county
executives committees, congress
ional, state . central and state
executive committees shall have
no right whatever at any
time to appoint or select delegates to
any convention-." -
This is as it should be. The Dem
ocratic party is trying to obtain for
the people the right of direct control
of legislation. The party would have
appeared in an awkward position
had it denied to its -own members the
right of direct control in party affairs.
FORMER VOLUNTEER UNDER ARREST.
Charged With Murdering a Notorlon
Woman in Havana Other Theories.
Havana, June l'J. The load papers
devoted considerable; space to the mur
der of the notorious Minnie Ross, who
was killed with the ljlunt edge of a
hatchet after" being cljoked, and was
found dead. It was first reported that
a well known army officer was involved,
but the uniform found in the room of
Fred Krauz. now in custody on charge
of being the murderer, is undoubtedly
one formerly worn by him. Krauz was
at one time a lieutenant of the Florida
volunteers. He is said to be a member
of a wealthy Tampa family. Thus far
there is but little evidence against him.
Many behoved from the nature of the
crime that it was committed by a
One theory is that the blow with the
hatchet was not immediately fatal and
that the victim then was choked to
death Robbery could scarely have
been the motive, for the police found
$2,500 in the murdered woman's room
and a quantity of valuable jewelry on
her dressing tabic.
Another theory was that soino gov

her tho person connected with the
police department who was blackmail

To Play Base Ball.
Akron Defeated the
Lavvson Had All
Eighteen young men made an un
successful attempt to give-an exhibi
tion of the great national game in the
hay field, formerly the Buchtel col
lege Athletic grounds, at the corner
of Kling and Wheeler sts., Saturday
Eight of the players hailed from
Wadsworth. These with the excep
tion of one, McShaffery, were pitted
against nine men from this city. Out
of the entire bunch there were per
haps half a dozen who knew the game
enough to make a respectable show
ing when they tried to put their
knowledge into execution.
The crowd was a small one. Half
of the spectators were from Wads
worth. The game was full of useless
kicking, in which- both sides took an
active part. A young man by the
name of Henkle umpired. His work
was in keeping with that of the al
leged players'. No better, no worse.
Eight innings finished the long
drawn out and tiresome contest,
which resulted in a score of 9 to 3 in
favor of Akron. Krohmer, at short,
played by far the best game. Watts,
who pitched, held the visitors down
to one hit. With any kind of sup
port he would have shut the Wads
worth team out. He was unable to
locate the plate with any regularity,
but the. opposing team could do noth
ing with his delivery when he did.

The Astonishintr Recovery of Two
' Well Known Akron Citizens.
Credited to the Boy
His Many Remarkable Cures Have
Created An Exciting: Episode
In Our City.
The past week our citizens have
been electrified, dumbfounded, bewil
dered, and finally convinced by a
most wonderful occurrence. Almost
daily during that time reports have
reached the public press and been the
chief topic of conversation upon the
streets relative to the surprising and
unparalleled cures of prominent citi
zens accomplished by a mere, youth,
known sis the Boy Phenomenon. The
healing of so many well-known per
sons of ailments supposed to be in
curable has attracted the most wide
spread attention and were a source of
w,onder and astonishment every
where. In fact so remarkable were
the results achieved that they were
almost beyond human belief, and not
until incontrovertible facts, support
ed bv overwhelming evidence of au
thenticated and indisputable proofs
were obtained would they be given
But thanks to a discriminating pub
lic, truth, honesty, merit and skill
have triumphed, and today -animal
magnetism and the Boy J?henome
non stand, without a pger. preemi
nently at the head of all healing
The unparalleled success attending
his work in Akron the pastweek and
the miraculous cures effected of
many prominent citizens, whose mal
adies were considered hopeless have
gained for this mere youth not only
an enviable reputation as the great
est, of nil matrnetie healers, not only
the plaudits of the public and the
indorsement of the press and pulpit,
but the personal knowledge, which
is more gratifying than 'all. that he
has been able to restore sight to the
blind, hearing to the deaf, strength
to the weak, causes paralytics to re
cover the use of their limbs and
rheumatic pains to disappear.
The following letters oi gratitude
from cured patients are only samples
of many dozens already received,
one or two of which will be publish
ed every day during his stay in this
city, to give those who are interested
an opportunity to investigate their
authenticity before taking treatment.
Names are never published without
consent of patient.
To the afflicted :
From gratitude for my sudden
restoration, I make this public ac
knowledgment, feeling it a ditty to
humanity to give credit where merit
is found". During the Civil war, 34
years ago, I contracted rneumatism,
which has battled all Kinas oi treat
ment. I have suffered untold agony,
and at times been perfectly helpless.
If was with difficulty I hobbled
around on my cane, but since this
young magnetist treated me I
have discarded my canes, the pains
have ceased, and I feel like a new
man. He has certainly wrought a
miracle in my case.
139 Bartges st.
Geo. E. Baehtel, of 103 LaSalle St.,
is another old resident of Akron whol
can testify to the marvelous healing
power of Vital Magnetism, as con
tained in the body of the Boy
Phenomenon. Mr. Baehtel has been
unable to do a day's work in over a
year, being laid up with rheuma
tism, but is now able to resume work
after only two visits to the healer.
His testimony, while short, is to the
"I have been a great sufferer from
rheumatism for three years, but only
during the past year did it make
such a cripple' of me that I had to
quit work. Since this young apostle
of healing treated me the pains have
disappeared and now I have free use
of my limbs. Geo. E. Bachtel."
Those who wish treatment may
obtaiu consultation any day from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Buchtel hotel,

Washington', June 1!). L. M. Lock
wood, an oil producer of Zoliuoplc, Pa.,
in his testimony before ft J industrial
commission Saturday declared that the
Standard Oil comjxiny had driven the
iudependent refineries into bankruptcy.
Going back to 1872, he referred at
length to :v contract made by tho trunk
lines of Pennsylvania, with the South
Improement company. LTuder this
contract, he said, tho freightrates on oil
were doiibled and one-half the amount
collected was paid back as a rebate not
only tlrs, but the contract company re
ceived a like rebate on tho shipments of
all other companies.
This contract, he declared, ha"d been
secretly continued by the railroads with
the Standard Oil company. He quoted
A. J. Cassatt, the new president of the
Pennsylvania Railroad company, as tes
tifying lieforo the Interstate Railway
commission to the effect that whilo the
open rate to the. public was 1.00 per
barrel, the rate to the Standard com
pany was 80 cents.
Further investigation, said Mr. Lock
wood, had developed the fact thai the
railroad companies actually received
only 33 cents. This condition of affairs
had resulted for a time, according to the
witness, m giving the btandard "com
pauv a profit of over 400 per cent.,
while the independent refineries were
being rapidly driven into bankruptcy.
Mr. Lockwood characterized both the
oil company and railroad officials as
highwaymen and brigands.
"If you have-got to bo robbed," he
exclaimed, "it does not matter much
whether you are held up by Dick Tur
piu with a pistol or by John Rockefel
ler with a railroad; it is robbery all the
same." He said that men who had
carefully analyzed the testimony taken
before the Hepburn committee esti
mated that in 10 months' time the five
trunk lines of Pennsylvania had paid
the Standard company 11,000,000 in
rebates. The railroad companies. liad,
he said, completely ignored the orders
of the interstate commission to cease
their discrimination in favor of the
Standard company, resorting to the
system of false billiug.
Speaking of the remedy for the evil,
Mr. Lockwood said it was yi public
ownership of the railroads and not in
the courts. "The railroads and the oil
company .can razoo a man up and down
in the courts for ten years," he said,
"until he is ruined financially, and then
go on with their work, leaving their
victim stranded. As a reward the com
bines elevate their instruments to higher
places politically. Thus it is that the
thonght of the common people is gradu
ally becoming fixed to the effect that the
great railway combines are gradually
packing the supreme courts with uien'in
sympathy with their monopolistic tend
