TO TELEPHONE THE DEMOCRAT CALL
THURSDAY, JULY 20
TO OUR READERS.
The Democrat presents its Sou
venir Edition to the people of
Akron today without having wearied
them by a previous flourish of
Newspapers that are forever blow
ing the fog-horn of extravagant self
praise, and trying to make palpable
lies pass for the genuine truth, usu-
niitr i1ikti1.iv the least entemriso and
the most niggardliness when it comes
to lending a helping hand to ad-
vancementof the interests of their
city or its public-spirited citizens,
To this class the Democrat has no
desire to belong.
The publishers have gone to con
siderable expense in presenting this
Souvenir Edition to its readers,
but if it merits the people's approval,
if it helps in its humble way to i
advertise Akron and, incidently, to .
promote the welfare of the Elks'-
Fair, our efforts shall not have been ,
been in vain.

W. C. T. U. Is Pleased Over Con
cessions Which Were Granted.
There seems to have been a mis
take in the statement that the TV.C.
T.U. would hold a meeting Wednes
day evening to take action in refer
ence to certain attractions at the
Elks' street fair. No meeting was
The "W.C.T.U. does not wish to be
apprehended as being antagonistic
to the Elks' fair as a whole, their
stand being directed entirely towards
the objectionable features as design
ed in the society's report published
in the papers Wednesday.
A member of the W.C.T.U. com
mittee said to a Democrat reporter
Thursday morning: "The commit
tee feels glad over the concessions
granted it by the Executive commit
tee of the Elks' street fair. We are
Bd to see the open promise that the
objectionable features would be
closed, and we trust that they will so
remain until the end of the fair."

" Dear Friesd A year ago I was a
great sufferer from female weakness.
My head ached all the time and I would
get so dizzy and have that all gone
feeling in the stomach and was 60
nervous and restless that I did not
know what to do with myself.
" My food did me no good and I had a
bad case of whites. I wrote to you and
after taking Lydia E. Pinkham'5 Vege

truly say that I feel like a new woman
and cannot tell you how grateful I am
"I have recommended it to all my
friends and have given it to my
daughter who is now getting along
splendidly. May you live many years
to help our suffering sisters.'" Mas. C.
Carpenter, 253 Grand St., Brooklyn,
Over eighty thousand
such letters as this were re
ceived by Mrs. Pinkham
during 1897. Surely this is
strong proof of her ability
to help suffering women.

"I never at auy time made any such

Kr.w Yokk, July 20. New York trol
ley men joined the Brooklyn trolley
men in their big strike. The center of
operations in New York city was on
Second avenue. The excitement in
Brooklyn centered in the vicinity of
Thirty-sixth and Fifth avenue, where
dynamite was used in an attempt to
blow down the elevated structure.
Twenty-one strikers were arrested,
charged with the 'dynamiting and held
for exainiuation, bail being fixed.
The rioting that took place in New
York was of a serious nature, infinitely
fiercer than any that has taken place
yet iu the borough across the river.
Scores of people were injured, and
severely injured, in the Second avenue
district. That great thoroughfare was
crowded with a jeering, howling mob,
almost its entire length. The great
tenements gae forth their workingmen
residents, who backed up the strikers.
Several policemen were removed to
hospitals with broken boues and torn
scains. At least ouo striker or strike
sympathizer had his skull fractured,
and a boy had his skull lractured. In
numerable passengers on the cars re
ceived bud wounds.
On the other lines througuout New
York the btriko was not at any tinio
prominent. Last night, however, the
motormen on the Eight avenue line, to
tho number of 100 or more, organized
aud declared a strike.

INDUCEMENTS TO RECRUIT.
Men Failing to Get Commissions Urged
to Ueeoiue Privates.
Washington, July 20. The war de
partment offered extra inducements to
expedite the recruitment of the ten vol
unteer regiments. Nearly all the com
missions having been issued, many of
the disappointed applicants were ad
vised to enter the ranks, as in that way
it might be possible for them to secure
commissions. General Corbin said that
the policy of the administration will be
-so fill all vacancies which may occur
tmong commissioned officers from the
ranks. A number of applicants for com
missions have enlisted as privates in the

Which Would Kestilt In HI Ilelng

Affairs l)cllu May Be Censured.
Chicago, Jnly 20. Acting Chairman
William J. Stone of Missonri called to
order the Democratic national commit
tee this morning, at the Sherman House.
William Jennings Bryan will prob
ably bit as a committeeman, arrange
ments having been made to furnish him
-Tnliii P. AlttrMlil holds this uroxv oE
William H. White of Washington. His
presence in tho committeo may cause
trouble, for it is believed that Thomas
Galian, member of the committee from
Illinois, may question Mr. Altgeld's
right to represent a Democratic commit
teeman. Mr. Altgeld said that he did
not euro to bit in the committee if any
of tho members resented it, and accord
ingly telegraphed Mr. "White suggesting
that some other proxy be named, al
though he s.iid he would serve if he did
not hear from White or if tho latter in
sisted on his serving.
If acting Chairman Stone's wishes
are carried out, and apparently most of
the committeeman are with him, the
factional differences local to Chicago
and New York will not be brought be
fore the committee in any form.
It is probable that a now rule will be
adopted today providing that whenever
a vacancy ocenrs in the national com
mittee, the. state committeo shall elect a
member of tho national committee to
nil such vacancy. Another rule which
is under consideration gives the na
tional committee the right to judge of
t,. ,,i;flfvtrinrs nf its own members.
Still another rule is being talked of
which would force ex-Governor Altgeld
out of his position as a member of the
"auxiliary"conunittec," which was orig
inally composed of Mr. Altgeld. Sena
tors Jones, Teller and Allen and Will
iam J. Stone. This rule will provide
that all committees, auxiliary and
otherwise, of the national committeo,
shall be made up onlT of members of
the big committee. As Mr. Altgeld is
not a member of the national commit
tee, the adoption of this rule, would
prevent his serving on any auxiliary
According to tho plan of action given
out there will be two subsidiary coni
it.Q nml fhfi finance, which will
take tho place of the committee on ways
and means, and the executive commit
tee, which, in addition to its other
duties, will take charge of the press bu
reau. It was predicted that it a sub-comnut-teoof
the finance committee is named
to do the work which has been done by
the ways and means committee, Urey
Woodson of Kentucky and J. G. John
son of Kansas will be two of its mem
bers, and that Samuel B. Cook of Mis
souri will be made superintendent.
Mr. Woodson and Mr. Johnson, who
were members of the committee selected
to inquire into the protest made by
Thomas Galian against P. J. Devlin,
press agent of the national committee,
have their report ready to submit today.
The report is understood to censure Mr.
Devlin for the part he took iu tho Harrison-Altgeld
campaign last spring, and
to recommend the abolishment of the
It is intimated that the resignations
of Senators Teller and Allen and ex
Governor Stone as members of the
"auxiliary," or ways and means com
mittee.jwill be handed in today. Senator
Jones' absence in Europe will leave Mr.
Altgeld the sole remaining member of
this committee, and an attempt may be
made to force him out and reorganize
the committee with only Democrats as
members, leaving out the Populists and
Amone the prominent Democrats
here were: George Fred "Williams of
Massachusetts, Oliver H. P. Belmont of
New York, Clark Howell of Georgia,

Representatives of the Chicago plat
form Democrats of the state of New
York issued an address "to the members
of tho Democratic national committee
and to tho Democratic voters of the
United States," in which they declared
that a majority of the Democrats were
for the pnuciDles of the Chicago plat
form and "favored nominating the
man who most thoroughly stood for
those principles, but that the party
machinery was in tho hands ot the
Tammauyites, whoso record disclosed
their hostility to these principles. They
close by saying:
"We issuo this address in order that
the fact may be put before the Demo
crats of the nation that the Tammany
organization is indifferent where it is
not hostile to those national issnes fur
which tho Democratic party stands; aud
we ask the co-operation of all Demo
crats, in or out of official station, in the
work ot giving to the Democratic voters
of the state oi New York an oppoi Ut
ility to express themselves and make
their convictions effective iu the nation.

When a builder wants to put up a per
manent structure, he looks well to the
foundation. He digs deep andlays the
stones with exactness and precision. He
"trues" and "plumbs" and "levels." A.
defect or weakness in the foundation will
affect everythtuff aoove it. A
solid foundation is an absolute
necessity for a solid hou4-e. In
the physical structure
stomacb ts the
on it depends the
support of every
other organ in
the body. It is
, J -. , 'A'
ousness, .... ,.
sleeplessness, and all the woes of dyspep
sia. It is the disordered stomach that
makes thin, impoverished blood, where
microbes of consumption flourish and mul
tiply. It is the weak and disordered stom
ach which brings about conditions that
cause a hackinsr cough, sore throat, bron
chitis, weak and bleeding lungs.
To make the foundation of your physical
structure solid; so that the rest of the or
gans may successfully resist the attacks of
disease, nothing equals Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. This medicine is a
tonic, an appetizer, a blood purifier, a
nerve builder, a flesh maker, a foe to weak
ness and a blessing to worn-out and run
down humanity. It is a non-alcoholic
specific for every disease that comes mad
vance of consumption. It is a distinct
remedy and stands alone. Nothing is like
it, and there is no substitute for it. It has
a record of thirty years of cures.
Sirs. Lula Hedgecoke. of Dozier, Collings
worth Co.. Texas, writes: "I was troubled for
seven or eight years with indigestion and liver
complaint, and received more benefit from the
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
and Tleasant Pellets' than any medicine I
have ever tried."
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets
are for constipation, biliousness,
and torpid liver. These troubles
they cure permanently without
causing distress. They are pleas
ant in fact as well as name no
griping. At all dealers.
