Recorder, subject to the decision of the
county convention, Aug. 23.
OAPT. JA8. H. BURT,
The Democrat is informed by a
prominent local Eepublican close to
the councils of his party that Gov.
Roosevelt has been brought to Akron
to overcome the severe disaffec
tion among local Bepublicans who
disapprove of the Administration's
policy of imperialism. Nothing will
be neglpcted to stir up Eepublican
enthusiam in Summit county, and
all for the glory of the great I Am,
the ambitious Col. Dick. He will
get ali the glory.
Dispatches to the Plain Dealer
from Columbus show that Col. Dick
is going to make a special effort to
carry Summit county this fall, as he
was called down byHannatwo years
ago for not having the county better
in band. The opening of the cam
paign at Akron is a part of Dick's
plans in this regard. Everybody
knows that this is true. But the
voters of Summit county are not
going to be influenced by red fire and
brass bands in this year of grace.
They were duped once and have had
time to repent of their mistake.
Please announce my name as candidate
for the office of County Recorder, subject
to the action of Democratic convention to
be held August W. WM. F. LANTZ.

Mr. V. A. Clark, of 605 "West Cedur St., will

Tub prolonged deadlock over the
appointment of City Commissioners
is likely to result in one benefit to
the people of Akron it will very
likely bring about the repeal of the
law next winter. Akron is only
going through the same experience
that Youngstown had last winter.
The Youngstown Probate Judge,
line AKron's, insisted on governing
the city by proxy, and the deadlook
caused by his failure to get his favor
ites in office lasted for more than
eight months. The people will break
the Akron deadlock next fall by

DON'T BE HOODWINKED.
The .Dobson organ is trying to set
Summit county's Democrats to fight
ing one another on account of the
It is not necessary to tell the local
Democrats how much credence they
ought to give to the statements made
in the political columns of tho Bea
con. In another column of today's
democrat, Chairman E. L. Andrew
tells how he was grossly misrepre
sented by the Dobson paper last
night, and Mayor Young and Clerk
Isbell also tell what they think of
the Dobsonian lies that were told
At the convention two weeks hence
Summit county's Democrats are
going to give Judge C.,R. Grant an
enthusiastic and unanimous endorse
ment for the nomination for Justice
of the Supreme Court, and they are
going to send a delegation to Zanes
ville which will use all honorable
means to bring about his nomination.
And many of Summit county's Dem
ocrats, in addition to the regular
delegation, will be on hand to urge
the nominatiou of Judge Grant.
The assumption, therefore, in the
the columns of the Dobson organ,
that local Democrats do not know
that the gubernatorial contest has no
part in determining the selection of
delegates, as to do so would injure
the candidacy of Judge Grant,
denotes even a greater degree of
imbecility on the part of our neigh
bor than Akron people have given it

The perfect weather hastened the
early arrival of special trains from
Alliance, Salem, East Liverpool,
Mt. Vernon, Delphos, Canton and
Cleveland. At two o'clock by a close
estimate the crowd numbered about
11,000. During the morning hours
concerts were given at the various
stands throughout the grounds by
the K. O. T. M. band of Akron, the
New Berlin, Benton and Copley
bands. At 12 o'clock the entire party
adjourned for dinner. Every table
on tho grounds was taken and many

The afternoon sports opened up at
1 o'clock with a ball game between
the Kent and New Berlin teams for
a purse of $25. Partisans of both

trouble was narrowly avoided. A
very ragged game was played by
both teams for several innings, Kent
Anally winning out in the ninth by
opportune batting. Close decisions
