Of Teeple's Pledge
Senator J. Park Alexander Produces
the Original Petition.
Hon. J. Park Alexander, twice the
victim of the Summit county Hanna
machine, has the documents to back
up his assertion that Aaron Teeple
pledged himself to give his support
to him at the Painesville convention.
Teeple has persistently denied this.
To substantiate his claim, Senator
Alexander is exhibiting the follow
ing: Akron, O., June G, 1899.
"To Hon. J. Park Alexander:
"The undersigned delegates to the
Senatorial convention of the 24th and
2'5th districts, respectfully request
that in view of -your past services to
the party and your usefulness as a
Legislator, and for the reason of the
two-term rule obtaining in this dis
trict, you become a candidate for re
election to the Senate, and we here
by pledge yon our support in all
honorable ways to accomplish your
nomination and re-election.
(Signed) "A. TEEPLE."
It is evident that Senator Alexan
der has the better of the controversy.
He knows, as do his friends, that he
was led into the race for the purpose
of being knocked down.
JUMPED IN CANAL
To Escape Ire of Stepfather Police
Herman Bohnenstelfen, 140
Bartges st., was fined $5 and costs by
Mayor Young Monday morning on a
charge of assault and battery.
Saturday afternoon he went home
in an intoxicated condition, abused
his wife and proceeded to demolish
the dishes and furniture in general.
His stepson interceded. Bohnen
steffen then took after him. The
canal is nearby and the stepson
plunged into the muddy water with
all his clothes on. The "old man"
threw sticks at him, but the son
ducked and avoided punishment. A
large crowd had congregated and en
joyed the amusement.

The Elks Street Fair and Carnival
was as triumphant in its ending as it
was in its beginning.
There was nothing about the
crowds at. the fair Saturday evening
to indicate that they had become
weary of its charms. Instead, the
same jolly, good humor, character
istic of preceding nights, prevailed
everywhere. The merchants and
business men were just as enthusi
astic in describing the articles in
their displays, and the various fea
tures of amusement and attraction
never amused or attracted better. It
was an evening of pleasure and
gayely from first to last, and fun
was fast and varied until the closing

night was about 5,000. Inthe after

Receipts and Expenses.
All the bills not yet having been
presented, and other details not
completed, the committee on finan
ces is not prepared to make a state
ment in reference to what money
was cleared at the fair. It is thought,
however, that not less than $2,000
have been cleared. The expenses
were about $6,000.
At last year's fair the money clear
ed was about $5,000. The fair for 1898
was not conducted on afcflarge a scale
as it was this year, and then, for sev
eral reasons, the attendance this
year was not as good as it was last,
especially in the afternoons.
One of the reasons assigned by
the Elks for the decrease in attend
ance was the less desirable location
as compared with that of last year.
The grounds were smaller, possessing
very little shade, and being quite
dusty, were not attractive to after
Another reason is that the Street
Fairs are in a measure losing their
novelty, and one or two evenings'
visit to the grounds was sufficient to
Was a Success.
But then, the Elks' Street
fair was a success in every
sense of the word. From the
word go it had the stamp of ap
proval of Akron's best people, who
were its most, enthusiastic patrons.
Its social pleasures were many,
and for a whole week's amusement,
nothing has for a long time contrib
uted so much genuine enjoyment to
Akron's people. The shows were
conducted well throughout the cn-
ire week, leaving little room for
complaint from any source.
The midway attractions, under
the management of the Canton
Carnival company, left Sunday
morning for Franklin, Pa., where a
street fair will bo held this week.

accompanied in her visit to Vial's

railroad took possession of Cottage
Grove lake. Saturday, which it pur
chased n few days ago. Last year
Cottage Grove lake was used as a
summer resort and was considered
very popular. The management,
however, was not altogether satis

not a financial success.
H is now proposed that it be turn
ed into a pleasure resort and fixed

and it is expected that the first trips
there will he run in a very short

located four miles from Krumroy, on
the same line.
Resulted In Lively Law
A lively case tried in the court of

afternoon, was that in which Arthur

labor claim of $150 from Thomas
Snyder. Both the plaintiff and de

Three years ago Morgan was em
ployed to work on Snyder's barn.
Some trouble arose when an effort
was made to reach a settlement, and
the bill was not paid.
Farmer Snyder also had a counter
charge against Morganaccusing him
of killing a valuable cow.
The case was decided in favor of
Morgan, who was given judgment for
