Says the Mayor Not Pledged to Any
A Democb at reporter asked Mayor
Young to tell what he thought of the
article in last night's Beacou to the
effect that he was working in the in
terest of John R. McLean for gover
nor. "I hardly think the article worth
noticing," said the Mayor. "The
Beacon has been so given to falsify
ing since Dobson got in control, and
Akron people are so familiar with its
methods, that no one gives its state
ments credence. I might hay, how
ever, that I never expressed myself
either for or against any candidate
for governor. Although personally
acquainted with none of the candi
dates except Sherwood and Rice, I
have thought all along that Col.
Kilbourne was the strongest man
and my inclinations were toward
Stand by Judge Grant.
"I .have believed it very uuwihe for
any summit county .Democrat, wnue
we ourselves have an able candidate
for the state ticket in the person of
Judge C. R. Grant, to make a fight
for any one in the gubernatorial nom
ination. "As to the statement that I have
made frequent trips to Columbus and
Cincinnati, I will say that I have not
been in Cincinnati since the last day
of May, and then I merely passed
through there on the way to Love
land, O., where I was taking deposi
tions. I 'was in Cincinnati only two
hours, and while there t-aw no one I
knew except an old college friend,
and he was a Republican. I talked
politics to no one. I have been to
Columbus twice this summer the
first time at the Bryan banquet; and
while there I saw none of the so
called political leaders of the state. I
did, however, get a glimpse of that
great bugaboo to the Republican
party, Louis Bernard, of Cincinnati,
who was pointed out to me in the
lobby of the Great Southern hotel as
he was hiking the elevator to go to
his room; but I have never mot him
Eersonally and have not the honor of
lb acquaintance. And, furthermore,
none of McLean's agents have been
here to see me.
"As another evidence of the lying
propensities of Dobson and his
agents, I notice that he states that
ex-Mayor Louis H. Gibson of Zanes
ville, a prominent McLean man,'
was here in consultation with me.
About the only truthful tiling in the
whole article was that Mr. Gibson
was in Akron. He came here as the
representative of the Columbus
Press-Post, which een Dobson, in
his dense ignorance, knows is a Kil
bourne paper. Mr. Gibbon ih not
only the representative of a strong
Kilbourne paper, but he is a pro
nounced Kilbourne man.
"The only other time I was in- Co
lumbus this summer was about three
weeks ago, when I spent Saturday
and Sunday with my brother and his
family, and if anxious to know what
political leaders I saw in Columbus,
Mr. Dobson might write to Mr. Geo.
TJ. Marvin, the editor of the Cleve
land Leader, who knows exactly
whom I saw and what I did while
there. Iunight add, however, that I
saw no one in Columbus that I knew
except the manager of the Chitten
den hotel, my brother and our re
Democrats Will Support the Ticket.
"I think that my Democracy is as
pure and unadulterated as that of
Dobson himself. I accord to every
man the privilege of choosing whom
he will support forplaces on both the
btate and county tickets, and I be
lieve that every true Democrat in
Summit county will do just as I
shall do give his hearty support to
the nominees of the Zanesville con
vention. I hardly expect that these
nominee1- will please the editor of
the Br-acon, but I am satisfied that
they will be acceptable to every man

AKRON, OHIO, FRIDAY
Has Found New Land.
Arrives at Tromsoe From
the Frozen North.
Strange Region Explored
by His Party.
Months of Darkness With Corpse
Successful Expedition Story
Walter Wellmau, who was one of
the publishers of the Akron News,
has reached Tromsoe, Island of Trom
soe, Norway, on the return trip from
an expedition in the Polar regions.
His experiences in the frozen
north were harrowing in the extreme.
He succeeded in making several
new discoveries, but at a terrible cost.
A dispatch from Tromsoe, Norway,
tolls the story. It reads:
Walter Wellmau and the surviv
ors of the Polar expedition led by
him, arrived here this evening on the
steamer Capella, having successfully
completed their explorations in
Franz Josef land.
Mr. Wellman has discovered im
portant new lands and many islands.
The expedition brings a grim story
of Arctic tragedy. In the autumn of
1893 an outpost, called Fort McKin
ley, was established in latitude 81.
it was a nouse ouiit oi rocKs ana
roofed over with walrus hides. Two
Norwegians, Paul Bjoervig and Bert
Bentsen, the latter of whom was
with Nansen on the Fram, remained
there. The main party wintered in a
canvas coveied hut called Harmb
worth House, at Cape Tegethoff, on
the southern point of Hall's Island,
About the middle of February, be
fore the rise of the sun to its winter
height, Mr. Wellman, with three
Norwegians and five dogs, started
north. It was the earliest sledge
journey on record in that high lati
tude. On reaching Fort McKinley, Mr.
Wellman found Bentsen dead, but
Bjoervig, according to promise, had
kopt the body in the house, sleeping
beside it through two months of
arctic darkness. Notwithstanding
his terrible experience the survivor
was safe and cheerful.
Pushing northward through rough
pp nnd severe storms, 'with a contin
uous temperature for ten days be
tween forty and fifty degrees below
zero, the party found new land north
of Freedom Island, where Nansen
landed in 1895. By the middle of
March all hands were confident of
reaching latitude 87 or 88, if not th e
Then began a succession of disas
ters. Mr. Wellman, while leading
the party, fell into a snow-covered
crevesse, seriously injuring one of
his legs and compelling a retreat.
Two days later the party was roused
at midnight by an ice quake under
it, due to pressure. In a few min
utes many dogs were crushed and
sledges destroyed. The members of
the expedition narrowly escaped
with their lives, though they man
aged to save their precious sleeping
bags and dogs and provisions.
On Mr. Wellman's condition be
coming alarming, as inflammation
set in, the brave Norwegians dragged
him on a siege by forced marches
nearly 200 miles, to headquarters, ar
riving there early last April. Mr.
Wellman is still unable to walk, and
will probably be permanently crip
pled. After reaching headquarters other
members of the expedition explored
regions hitherto unknown, and im
portant scientific work was done by
Lieutenant Evely S. Baldwin, of the
United States Weather Bureau; Dr.
Edward Hoffma of Grand Haven
Mich. ; and A. Harlan of the United
States coast survey. The expedition
killed 47 bears and many walruses
The Capella arrived at Cape Tege
thoff in search of the expedition on
July 27 last. On August 9 she met
the Stella Polar, bearing the expedi
tion headed Prince Luigi, Duke of
Abruzzl, which had sailed from
Archangel to reconnoiter Northwest
Franz Josef Land, and to meet, if
possible, the Wellman expedition.
Mr. Wellman and his companions
found no trace in Franz Josef Land
of the missing aeronaut, Andre.
Claiming Akron Her Home In
The young girl, Edith Allis, who
was taken from a house on Chestnut
st. to Lakside Hospital a day or two

day, says the Cleveland Leader.
When she became ill Dr.
Colton ordered her" taken to
the hospital; and it was
thoughC that she was the vlotim of
an operation. The girl is but fifteen
years old, and claimed to have come
from Akron. She is simply suffering
from typhoid fever.
EVENING. AUGUST 18,
Comic Opera Put on By
Enjoyable Performance at St. Vincent
de Paul's School.
A fair sized audience was present
at st. Vincents nail Thursday even
ing to enjoy the comic opera, "H. M.
S. Pinafore." rendered by local tal
ent under the direction of G. Van
Demorest, of New York. The opera
was enjoyable throughout and the
audience appreciative. The piano
accompaniment to the opera was
played in a musical and sympathetic
manner by Miss Mamie May.
The cast of characters rendering
the opera is composed of the follow
ing named persons:
Joseph Porter. K. C. B., first lord of
the admiralty, Mr. Demorest; Ralph
Rackstaw, an able seaman, L. Hafli
nan; Dick Deadeye, an able seaman,
M. A. McDonough; boatswain, Ar

Majesty's ship. Pinafore, J. F.

tain's daughter, Mary Doran;
Little Buttercup, a brimboat
woman, Winnie Burman; Hebe. Sir
Joseph's favorite cousin, Frances
Kelloy; LadyFillls and Hon. Miss
Frost, Sir Jdseph's favorite aunts,
airs. Tenanrand Mrs. Htoeckle;
Agnes Nelari, Lena Henry, Eliza
Henry, Maggie McGarry, Mary Mo-
Garry, Mrs. Barton, Agnes Burman,
Miss Uommins, Collette Steinger,

Bertha Hahn, Maude McClean, May
Dellahanty, sisters, cousins and
aunts of Sir Joseph; Glen White,
VinTobin, John Dunn, Louis Helb
ling, Robert Doonan, James Murphy
and Randall Murphy, able seamen'.
All the performers did well and
those having the more prominent
parts introduced considerable dra
matic force into their acting. Mr.
Demorest's portrayal of the charac
ter of Sir Joseph Porter was clever
and full of realism. The central fig
ures around whom the romantic love
plot centered were Josephine, the
captain's daughter, and Ralph Rack-
straw, an able seaman. These char
acters were impersonated by Miss
Mary Doran and L. Hallinan. Their
acting was good and each possess
fine voices, calling forth much ap
plause from the audience with their
6inging. J. F. tstoeckle had a rather
heavy part in the handling of Capt.
Corcoran, bathe got along well. One
of the most pleasing figures in the
opera was Little Buttercup, whose
role was executed in a most pleasing
manner Dy miss Winnie Jdurnmn.
Dick Deadeye, a crusty old sea dog,
was the part played by M. A. Mc
Donough. Dick invariably lamented
about his pt.sonal -appearance, es
pecially the homeliness of his face,
which indeed was contorted and
built up with false whiskers and var
ious artificial marks. It is but due
the'popular "Mart" to say that he
was a fine favorite witii the audience
and that to really look ugly It was
necessary to have every portion of
his face covered or disfigured with

Club Will be Reorganized
Lack of Practice Was In
Rankin Is Willing to
Will Cover Any
It is probable that the Akrou base
ball team, as organized at present,
has played its last game.
For some time the team has not
been making a success in its exhibi
tions of the great national game.
There are gooa individual players,
but team work is missing.
No one has known where he was
to plav until after he reached the
grounds aud as a result the team has
failed to make much of a record as
winners. After the last game with
the Nebraska Indians a number of
the players wanted to disband. Al
though there has been no formal ac
tion taken it is said that the club, as
now constituted, will not appear on
the diamond again.
One of the backers of James Ran
kin, jr. called at the Democrat of
fice Thursday and stated thatif Dech
was anxious for another race with
their man he would be accommodat
ed. Any forfeit that is posted at the
Demockat offico by Dech or his
backers will be promptly covered.
Rankin will insist, however, that he
be allowed to name the conditions
for the race.

who are interested in the reorganiza
