Prevent Time's .Being Devoted
This Year's Picnic.
For the last four years it has been
the custom of the Democrat to
give a Free Trolley Excursion and
Outing to the children of its sub
scribers and advertisers.
The fact that the attendance at
these events has increased each
year, until at the last, outing more
than 7,000 children were entertained,
is an evidence of their success ana
Tills having been the pleasant ex
perience of previous years, the
Demockat regrets that the picnic
intended to be given for 1899 will
have to be postponed until next sea
son, when it will be bigger and better
The Democrat has just closed a
contract for an up-to-date Goss per
"fecting press, to be installed in our
press room within the next
three weeks. This improvement has
been necessitated by the steadily
growing circulation of the Demo
crat. It will enable the publishers
to increase the size of the daily from
the old four-page form, to the more
convenient and modern eight-page
form, and will print, fold and count
10,000 eight-page papers per hour.
In addition to this improvement,
type-setting machines will be in
stalled as soon as the order can be
filled by the manufacturers. This
will give the Democrat an equip
ment excelled by no other paper in
any Ohio city of Akron's class. It
will enable the Democrat to furnish
its readers within a few weeks with
a complete telegraphic news service,
more local news, and at the same
time greatly improve the carrier and
mail delivery service.
An addition is now being built to
the Democrat V press room and will
be ready for use within three weeks,
These improvements mean that the
Democrat's subscribers and the
people are going to get a better
paper. And they explain why the
Democrat must postpone this year's
Children's Outing until next year.
Much time and careful attention
are required to make the outings
successful. The safety and enter
tainment of the children must be
well looked after. The attention of
the publishers being engrossed by the
improvements that are under way,
they cannot spare the time necessary
to give the outing this year.
But we want to say to our little
friends that next year the Demo
crat's picnic will be bigger and
better than ever just as the Demo
crat is going to be within a few

Direct Method of Settling
That Exist Between Capital and
Labor Practical Sermon.
A very practical and forceful ser
mon was preached Sunday morning
at the First Church of Christ by the
Pastor, Rev. C. J. Tannar, on "The
Commercial Value of the Command,
Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbor as
Reference wa&Jiiade by the pastor
to the great street railway strike at
Cleveland. He deplored the fact
that it. exists and has continued so
long. In his remarks MrTannar
championed neither the side of
capital or labor, but spoke emphati
cally of the value of tly3 golden rule
and the love of one's neighbor as a
direct method of settling all differ
ences. He said that President
Everett was not all to blame nor
were the street care men all to blame
for the trouble. It is his opinion
that reasonable concessions should
always be made by both sides, and
that right should at all times govern
the settlement of labor troubles.
Several instances were cited where
large manufacturing concerns have
adopted the golden rule as their
motto for the governing of their em
ployes, and everywhere the golden
rule principles have been tried suc
cess has followed. Mr. Tannar urged
that it was not only possible but at
all times to live strictly in accord
ance with the golden rule.
Quite a large audience was present
and the able sermon was appreciated

Sailor Tells Just How it
Nebraska Indians Took
Games From Akron.
Temper Trotted Fast Mile Sporting
Tom Sharkey has already mapped
out his plans as to how he intends to
fight Jim Jeffries when they fight
their twenty-five round bout for the
championship of the world on Octo
ber 23. Sharkey, according to the
information, expects to win from
Jeffries by exactly the same blows
he beat Gus Ruhlin within one round
at the Greater New York Athletic
club at Coney Island last year.
These blows are a short left swing
for the jaw and a quick follow up
blow with a right swing for the oth
er side of his jaw. Sharkey in se
lecting these two blows to beat the
present champion, Jeffries, is doing
so on account of the height of Jeff
ries, which will put him at a great
disadvantage. Sharkey "imagines

without exerting themselves. In
the first only five innings were play
ed. The score resulted 8 to 1 in fav
or of the Red Men.
In the second game the Akrons
succeeded in getting two runs while

Queer Arrangement Said to Have
Been Made In Washington.
A curious story obtains here that
great dissatisfaction prevails among
the colored voters in Ohio; that they
resent the attitude of the adminis
tration toward the lynching of ne
groes in the south, and that they
complain of nourecognition in local
politics, says a Washington special
to the Enquirer. A notable example
is cited in Franklin county, where it
is said a brilliant and deserving
young colored man was ruthlessly
turned down for the Republican
nomination for representative.
It was rumored here several days
ago that Dick was coming down to
fix up a scheme to whip the colored
vote into line. It was said that ho
would come here to enlist the serv
ices of a Mr. Cooper, a colored man,
in this city, who affects journalism,
with whom the Administration has
dealt previously, to conduct a Re
publican paper to be circulated
among the colored people in Ohio.
Just where this paper was to ba
issued did not appear in the allega
tion. The simultaneous arrival of A.
W. Maynes of Akron, with that of
Colonel Dick, and their being quar
tered at the same hotel. lent color to
the idea that the story contained
some truth, at least, and that the said
paper was. to bo pinted in the Co
lonel's home town, Akron. When
asked concerning the truth of the re
port, Dick indignantly and emphati
cally denied it.
"I haven't seen Cooper, nor do I
expect to," said he. "There isn't a
word of truth in it! It's preposter
ous!' Col. Dick will probably remain un
til Monday, though he says he may
leave at any time, and cer
