END IS NEAR.
Signs Indicate It
Says Preacher of Seventh
Many Believers Have
Assembled In Tents.
State Convention of Church at
More Than 1000 Delegates
The Seventh-Day Adventists are
erecting quite a little city at Ran
dolph park, On the northern part of
the grounds more than 120 tents for
household purposes have been
pitched, besides restaurant tents, a
grocery tent and large auditorium
tents for preaching services.
Quite a number of the Adventists
are already at the park. They come
from all over the stale. Services
proper will commence August 3
when it is thought about 1,000 of the
Feet Trill be at the park.
The services will continue for 10
days. About 20 Adventist ministers
will be present to conduct services
and perform evangelical work.
This is the annual meeting and
conference of the .Adventists of the
state. The annual meeting was held
at Tiffin, O., last year. Elder R. B.
Kennedy, or wneeiersuurg, (J., is
president of the association; E. A.
Merriam, of Mr. Vernon, secretary,
and Elder A-Gr-Haugheyof Iti
Vernon, business manager.
Besides conducting service at the
park, the Adventists will also hold
conference meetings for the purpose
of transacting the business of the as
sociation, and electing officers for
the ensuing year.
Preaching services will be held
three times daily, morning, after
noon and evening. Evangelistic
work will be in progress all the time,
while song and special services will
be many. At 10 o'clock in the morn
ing, Kindergarten services will be

Adventists, who are continually set
ting the date for the world to come
to an end, a few words in reference
to the tenets of their religion may be
End of '.he World.
In conversation with a reporter
for the Dkmocbat, Rev. R. A. Board
man of Mt. Vernon, O., who was
seen at the park Friday evening,
"We have no written creed other
than the Bible. We believe in the
near coming of Christr the signs in
dicating that the world will come to
an end soon."
'How soon will that end come?"
"I'll not set a date," said Rev.
Boarmuan. "We have no patience
with Adventists who are continually
setting dates for the world to come
fo an end. But the signs are very
strong that lhat end is near, very
"Noah was many years in building
the ark. Ho was scoffed at when he
preached about the destruction of
the world by a flood. We are some
times scoffed at, yet we are faithful
in our belief and have just as good
assurance that Christ will come soon
as did Noah that the earth would be
destroyed by a flood.
"The 24th chapter of St. Matthews
contains in it reference to many of the
signs indicative that the world is
near the end. The 29th verse of that
chapter reads: 'Immediately after
the tribulation of those days shal
thejsun be darkened and the moon
shall not give her light, and the stars
Showers tonightCooler in central
portion Fair Sunday.
shall fall from heaven, and the pow
ers of the heavens shall be shaken.'
"Now recall that on the 13th day
of November, 1833, it was dark
throught the entire day, no moon
shone the night following and stars
fell in showers.
"The 12th verse of the 6th chapter
of Revelation also refers in prophesy
to the dark day, reading, 'And I be
held when He had opened the sixth
seal, and lo, there was a great earth
quake; and the sun became black as
sack cloth of hair, and the moon be
came as blood."
"I mightcite many other instances
which gives us good reason for be
lievinsr that the world is near the
end ; we don't know the day nor the
year; we live, trust and hope, striv
ing to live in a manner that will en
able us to meet with happiness our.
God when He comes."
Charge Against Young Man Wanted
A special from Columbus says:
"Ii. M. Bradfield, wanted in Akron
for embezzlement, was locked up in
the city prison Friday afternoon by
Detective Foster. Bradfield was
formerly in the employ of the Adams
Expiess company but for the Last
year has been in the employ of the
Armour company in Akron.
"Returning from making collec
tions one day he was either robbed
of $100 or lost that amount. His
bonding company was held respon
sible for the amount and now the
company desires his detention."
Bradfield never worked in this
city. He in wanted at Canton in
stead of Akron.

Official Ticket Defeated
by Big Majority.
Probably Another Election Will
The slate made up by some of the
ambitious young captains of the
Eighth Regiment was badly broken
in the elections held yesterday.
Returns received from all the com
panies except Mansfield show that
the independent or unofficial ticket
was elected over the official ticket,
better known as the slate, by a vote
of 225 to 59. -Reports from Mansfield
this afternoon show that the com
pany there voted practically solid
for the official ticket, which will
swell the latter's vote to about 100.

The result of the election, being as
it is highly complimentary to Messrs.
Weybrecht and Volirath, is not sur
prising. The legality of the election of men
upon the independent ticket will be
called into question. The Ohio Mi
litia code provides very explicitly
that only such candidates as are
nominated at a convention may be
Upon the other hand the state law
says any man may be voted for in
the discretion of the members of the
Attorney General Monnett and
Adjt. Gen. Axline will have to de
cide the matter.
The likelihood is that the election
for all the officers except Col. Dick
will be called off, a new nominat
ing convention held, and Messrs.
Volirath and Weybrecht nominated
as regular candidates therein. An
other election will then be held.
This will be done in the interest of
harmony, as neither the Adjutant
General nor the Attorney General
will dare to interfere.
There is but one thing for the
Board of Canvassers to do accept
the votes only for the official ticket.
The Board will meet at 1 o'clock

Election Officers Eighth Regiment
Sure to Result In Trouble.
The election of officers for the new
Eighth regiment, O. N. G., took
place Friday at the armories of each
of the eight companies.
The returns will be counted at the
Empire House next Monday at 12
o'clock by the board of canvassers.
The board is made up of Captain F.
C. Lee, Wadsworth, chairman; Cap-
AKRON, OHIO, SATURDAY
tain F. S. Gerlach, Wooster, secre
tary, and Captain Herman Werner.
The members of Co. F cast ballots
for the official and independent tick
ets. Whether the independent ticket
is legal is a question. Count will be
kept, -however, of both tickets.
Captain Herman Werner, when
asked in reference to the legality of
the independent ticket, said: "I
have taken a neutral stand in the
matter 'rom the very beginning. I
maintain now that in accordance
with the code of Ohio. I am com
pelled to recognize only the official
nominations made last Monday by
the eight captains of the regiment.
The case has been very plainly
stated to all the members. Before
we count the ballots next Monday
we will telegraph Adjutant General
Axline for instructions and his de
cision will be final."
Lieutenant J. P. Colwell was judge
of Co. F's election. Sergeant Julius
.Myers ana Watson W. lsh were
clerks. The returns will be forward
ed to members of the Canvassing
Whatever the outcome of the
election may be there promises to be
a bitter fight in the new Eighth
regiment. Everybody is satisfied
with Chas. Dick as colonel. The
trouble lies with the lieutenant colo

It is safe to say that the majority
of the members of the Eighth are in
favor of Volirath and Weybrecht

major respectively, ynouiu tne in

and Volirath aif angry because of
the way in whic.h the nominations
were made. Captain Werner, it can
be truthfully stated, was not a party
to the trickery, but held out for
what was fair and just.
The result of the election and Gen

with much anxiety.

A Queer Mishap.
A young society couple of South
Akron went to Silver Lake park
Thursday evening. During their visit
to the park they went in bathing.
What with diving off the spring
board, riding down the holy-coaster
and chasing each other about in the
water, as lovers will do, thoy had a
delightful time. Only one thing oc
curred to mar their pleasure. The
young woman attempted to laugh
while under water, during which
act her false teeth were soaked loose,
and out they floated, coining to the
top of the water and then skimming
hither and thither out upon the bo
som of tho deep, far, far away. The
young woman was so much discom
fited by the affair that she remained
in the water three hours, or until it
was too dark for the people on shore
to discover her plight.

Denver gives the following account
of the Ruhlin-Lawler fight:
Gus Ruhlin, the Akron giant, was
entitled to the decision in the first
round of his alleged glove contest
with Lawler. The agony was pro
longed into the ninth round, because
Ruhlin, who appeared good and
strong, was unable to land anything
more effective than a half-arm
punch. Lawler bled freely from the
left eye and nose, but came up for
punishment cheerfully. He was not
out when the referee called it off, but
as he was down tor the limit the
general opinion was that the match
had gone far enough. II was one f
