If Stories Are True
Says Senator Alexander
of Aaron Teeple.
Article Printed In Demo

Had No Thought of Charging a
"A. very fair report of our conver
sation," said Senator J. Park Alex
ander Tuesday evening in comment
ing on the interview-published in the
Democrat last Friday.
The article referred to was that in
which the Senator gave a few details
of the contemptible inctjiods resorted
to by his political enemies to bring
about his defeat at Painesville and
The old adage, "It's the truth that
hurts," is very much in evidence at
the present time. Senator Alexan
der did not spare certain men, here
tofore his professed friends, in mak
ing his statement lo f he. Democrat.
He did not forget that Aaron Teeple
had '"deliberately voted" against his
nomination after making him a
pledge of his support.
This reference brought forth a vi
cious letter from Mr. Teeple, which
waspublished in the Beacon-Journal
at the request of Judge Anderson and
other Hanna machine politicians.
Tuesday Senator Alexander made re
ply to Mr. Teeple in the vigorous
style characteristic of him. Hislet
"I regret that Mr. Teeple has en
tered the 'field of billingsgate,' and
that he confessds to so much ill-will.
Tt seems he has had it in for me ever
since I didn't support him for an of
fice. I have been to no Democratic
or any other paper to air my feel
ings. Mr. Marvin of the Democrat,
called at my home last Friday and
showed me a great display head in
LN the Democrat and anarticle follow
ing which he said was a Columbus
dispatch to the Plain Dealer and
asked ine what I had to say about it.
1 said in reply that he should say
there was not a word of truth in it
from top to bottom, and that I felt
it as -an outrage to print such slush
in a newspaper and then call upon
the parties and ask them what they I
"had to say in answer to it. ."
"Further questions were asked by
Mr. Marvin, to all of .which I made
answer that I did not care to be in
terviewed, ASV REQUESTED HIM TO
MAKE NO REl'ORT OF OUR TALK save
the full denial as above stated. I
have not seen an issue of the paper
except the one in Mr. Marvin's
hands for weeks and do not know
what he published.
"If this action of mine in fairly
seeking to keep out of publication is
in accord with what Mr. Teeple
says, then I am no judge of misrep
resentation. Mr. Teeple bigned a re
quest asking me to become a candi
date with a pledge of his support
this was done voluntarily and with
out a single condition. This was on
the 6th day of June and'Mr. Teeple
saw me or passed my house daily
for the 17 days intervening before the
convention and yet no word of a
change of mind or of the ill-will he
now plainly exhibits. Thirty-five of
like written pledges were sacred be
tween honorable men at the assem
bling of the convention. And it is a
sad comment upon American civili
zation and American politics that so
many like pledges were broken. Two
delegates to the convention reported
to me that Mr. Teeple voted against
me. Is.it strange with ,the exhibi-

tion of ill-will he seems to have
smothered for the past two years,
that I believed these gentlemen? As
to my coming homo from Painesville,
alluded to by Mr. Teeple, it is only
additional evidence of his willing
ness to patch up his conscience by
trying to find fault with me. I wasn't
a delegate. I had agreed not to be a
candidate if I failed of having a ma
jority of the Summit county delegation.-
T did not want to miss the
afternoon trains out- of Cleveland,
thus keeping me out until 10 p.m.
Then I may have had something of
a desire to get away from such de
plorable facts and the living exhibi
tion of the same. Do you wonder
at it. Mr. Teeple?
"J. Park Alexander.''
It will be noticed in reading the
above, that Senator Alexander makes
no denial, either directly or by im
plication, of the statements credited
to him by the Democrat in Friday's
paper. He does, however, take oc
casion to make the same charges
against Mr. Teeple that he did last
week, viz, that of breaking his sol
emn pledge to do all he could to
bring about the nomination of Mr.
Alexander for state senator.
The Beacon, without any authority
or warrant, draws the remarkable
and ridiculously false conclusion
that Senator Alexander lias denied
the report of his remarks made to a
Democrat reporter one week ago.
Just how the Senator could do this
before seeing an issue of the paper
containing the same is not explained
by the Beacon.
A- Democrat reporter Tuesday
evening took occasion to call Senator
Alexander's attention to the article
printed in Friday's issue of this
nanef. It called forth the remark
quoted at, the beginning. In addition
he mi id: "At the time of the conver
sation 1 did not understand that I
was talking for publication. 1 .be
lieved that the reporter had called
for the purpose of showing me the
clipping from the Plain Dealer."
"It was not my intention, in my let
ter in reply to Mr. Teeple, to accuse
the Democrat or Ihe reporter who
called on me of any falsehood. The
article in Friday's Democrat is a
true report of my talk with the re
porter, in all essential details. That
portion, referring to Mr. Teeple, is
quoted substantially correct."
Senator Alexander Tuesday after
noon had this to say as to Mr.
Teeple's action at Painesvillo:
"This morning, while down town I
met a gentleman, a friend, who told
me that he knew Mr. Teeple voted
against me at Painesville. I have
the word of three delegates to this
effect. H it is true, Mr. Teeple is an
unmitigated hyprocrite. I know that

support acted the traitor at Paines

Hambly, of 110 Long st., enlisted at
the local recruiting office into the
regular armyt and on the morning of
the 10th left for Cleveland to be as

Shortly after going to Cleveland
he started for the Philippines. His
parents heard nothing from him un
til Monday, when three letters ar
rived in the mail. They had been
long delayed in the transmission.
The letters had been written from
places at which the ship had stopped
while on the way to the Philippines.
Mr. Hambly told his parents that he
was well and jolly, and liked the
countries he had visited very much.
The letters were written in the latter
part of March. By this time the
young man has reached Manila, and

Liberal Patronage of Midway
With its magnetic influences of
spontaneous gayety and irrepressible
merriment, with its endless round of
jolly amusements, the dazzling lights
from the booths and bazaars, the
happy faces and merry glee of count
less children, the soft, mellow colors
of the women's summer gowns, the
grace and loveliness of Akron's
wealth and fashion, the soft and
swelling notes of the orchestras, and
thousand and one pictures presented
by the throng at the Elks' fair Tues
day night caused the casual observer

It is carefully estimated that 12,000
people visited the fair Tuesday even

best, and every show on the grounds
was in full operation.
First of all, perhaps, .should be
mentioned Achille Philiou's acton

balanced on a large "wooden ball, he

wonderful and performed with a suc

artist. He was vigorously applauded
by the large crowd. The refulgence
of the pyrotechnic display was an ecs

it. Mr. Philion's act will be a great
favorite with the thousands who
visit the fair.
Streets oi India.
The Streets of India were very
popular Tuesday evening, with their
elephants, camels, donkeys, magic
ians, acrobats, Arabs, Hindoos and
Hassan Ben Ali's troupe of Arab

tumbling acts ever exhibited to the
public. The concluding feature of
each performance is indeed a great
climax. It is a human pyramid,
whose only support is Hassan Ben

Many visitors to the Streets of
India enjoy a ride on the backs of
the elephants iiud camels. In riding
they not only enjoy themselves but
also furnish lots of amusement to
tho crowd, especially those who ride
Just outside the midway is located
the Venetian Gondola, which is one
of the gayest and enjoyable features
of amusement on the ground. The
Gondola was imported from Eng
land, and Is under the management
of Fred Lewis. While the Gondola
is much like a merry-go-round, it is
also quite different. The car
riage seats are whirled around same
as those of tho merry-go-round, but
run on wheels over a circuitous
course which is up and down, up and
down. Those who have ridden on
the Gondola pronounce it great sport
and it is being well patronized.
The 'merry device is lighted bril
liantly by electricity produced
by its own dynamo. A large
steam engine furnishes- the power to
operate the Gondola. So inside the
circuit of seats there is a small elec

A large contingent of Clevelanders
are expected tomorrow afternoon,
and they will remain over for the
evening performance on the Midway.
Cleveland has a street fair in con

doubtedly make careful note of the
manner in which affairs of this kind
are conducted in large cities.
Achile Philion introduced some
new effects in his fire works display
last evening. The A. L. Due Co. of
Cincinnati, have lately introduced a
new effect on an illuminating piece,
the lighting power of which equals
the candle power of two arc lights.
Mr. Philion used several of these
last night with telling effect.

To the Citizens of Akron :
A committee consisting of Dr.
Katherine Kurt, Mrs. Emil Ganune
ter and Mrs. Alex Adamson, was ap
pointed by the W. C. T. U. at its
meeting on Monday afternoon to in
vestigate tho character of the enter
tainment now being given at the
Elks Street Fair. A committee of
three gentlemen was also appointed
to assist, consisting of the Rev. A. B.
Church, Mr. S. H. Mantle and Mr.
D. W. Gammel. The men visited
the fair and have submitted a writ
ten report to the committee of the
W. C. T. U. From this report the
committee feels warranted in sub
mitting to its members and the citi
zens of Akron buch portions as may
appear in print:
"The undersigned, your committee,
appointed to visit tho Elks' Fair, be
ing held in Akron this week, beg
leave to submit the following report
of findings: Up to tho present time
in the commercial and industrial,
and many of tin- entertainment
features of the Fair, we saw much to
interest, instruct and legitimately
amuse. In the German village we
found City Ordinance 353 A. and B,
referring to the employment of
ladies as -waiters in' places where
beer, wines, etc.. are being sold,
openly violated. In the midway we
tounu some leaiurus oi merit, aim
others of the modern fakir order,
designed to beguile and relieve peo-
pie of their money. At the 'Oriental
Theatre,' undor the supervision of
Abdul-Nov, -we found 3 female char
acters who were bold, coarse, and
lascivious in their conduct and con
versation, about the tent entrance.
The theatrical performance 'for men
only' was simply forms of the
couchee-couchee dance. These so-
called dancers were in the
main most disgustingly licentious
and bawdy. From the pro
fane language of the spectators the
performance had the desired effect.
Ami on tne west sine ot the
mall In the tent advertising animals
and French dancing girls, the spec
tators were informed that if tiiey
would pay an additional fee of 25
cents they would be treated to a
spectacle behind the scenes even
more disgusting than that of the reg
ular performance. The presence of
two policemen presumably prevented
this performance from being little
more than an open fraud of money
getting. Both performances
and their characters are an offeiibe to
common decency; an outrage to so
cial virtue and morality, and corrup
tive of personal purity. No civilized
community can afford to tolerate
The women of Akron have a right
to know what manner of temptation
their sons and husbands meet in at
tending these entertainments. From
such evidence as is here furnished,
it is plainly to be seen "the Orien
tals" coming to entertain people with
their Midway are not educated in
the moral sense of a Christian com
munity. The W. C. T. l and many
others, advocate one standard of
morals, for men and women. Thev
believe that a scene or any entertain
ment unfit for woman's eye and ear,
is bad for men. The committee
truts that the local Elks will close
these objectionable features of the
fair at once.
