VOLUME EIGHT. NUMBER 104
AKRON, OHIO, SATURDAY EVENING. AUGUST 19, 1899.
PRICE ONE CENT
To Their Manhood
Would be an Order to
Assemble Eight's Men
In Akron on Day of Gov.
So Says Captain H. A. Fisher
of Company C.
Not a Machine For Any Political
A special to the Cleveland Plain
Dealer from Columbus mentions the
name of the Eighth and says that it
will be assembled at Akron on the
occasion of the opening of the Be
publican campaign, says the Canton
News Democrat. Canton members
of the regiment talk freely of this re
port and do not like the plan. They
say it is an inRult to their manhood
to insist that any political party can
Uhe the organization for its benefit.
A private in the- ranks of Company
C said this morning that they all re
spected Col. Dick and had voted for
him as their colonel, but they didn't
p'ropose to be turned over, bag and
baggage, to the Eepublfcan party for
campaign purposes. He said they
would be pleased to honor Boosevelt
as they thought he was all right but
could not expect to come-on a politi
cal mission and use any attention
that might begiven'him,JnT the -interest
of the Bepublican party.
Captain M. A. Fisher, of Company
C, was seen by a News-Democrat re
porter this morning and was interro
gated concerning the report. He said
he did not take much stock in it
and had made no investigation as to
"I do not believe that Col. Dick
contemplates anything of the kind,"
said Captain Fisher. "He 1b popular
with the boys and they have selected
him ns their colonel, but I am sure a
sense of the proprieties will suggest
to him that a movement of the kind
said to be contemplated would
not stand with the men. The Eighth
regiment ig ready to respond to a call
for duty, but it is not a machine for
any political party. 1 am certain
that Major Weybrecht -would not call
" out his battalion for any such pur
pohe'and I am sure I would not as
semble my company to attend any
"We are not organized to further
party interests. The Eighth regi
mentwilluotbe in Akron at the cam
paign opening. A few of the mem
bers may be there as individuals,
but they will not be in uniform and
they will not take any state property,
as they would have no right to do
that. No one can object to an indi
vidual, as an individual, going to
Akron to the campaign opening, but
they will not see Company C there
as a company. But as I said, I do
not believe that Col. Dick has any
thing to do with such a movement.
It could not be successful and I do
not think it will be undertaken."
A Democrat reporter was inform
ed by Captain Feederle, Friday, that
the escort which was to be tendered
Gov. Boosevelt would be made up of
such members of Company B as
cared to participate. No order will
be issued calling out the men. They
will not appear in uniform.

Will Get $1,500 a Year,
Doing From Five to Eight Men's
Work Health Board.
At the regular meeting of the
Board of Health last evening the
salary of 31. W. Hoye as milk in
spector was increased $5 a month
and as sanitary policeman $20 a
month , making his yearly compensa
tiou $1,500, instead of $1,200.
Messrs. Lyon, Sargent, Koplin and
Palmer were present at the meeting.
Mayor Young presided, but under
the rules had no vote upon the mo
tion. Mr. Koplin stated that Sanitary.
Policeman Hoye is doing work very
satisfactorily that most cities em
ploy from five to eight men to do.
Youngstown, for instance, has
eight sanitary policemen besides a
health officer, having paid $3,084 last
year for the sanitary policemen
alone. The expenses of Akron's en
tire health department last year
were only $1,800.
Messrs. Sargent, Lyon and Palmer
all spoke-in favor of increasing Col.
Hoyo's compensation and compli
mented him for his efficient work.
Mr. Sargent says the dutieg of the
office are specially onerous. The
fact that ColJHoye had to keep two
horses in" his work, at his own ex
pense, was commented upon. The
vote was unanimous and would have
been the same had all members been
No other business wab transacted.

hotel, was attended by a majority of

The only club scoring against Akron

game with the Chicago Athletic
club when it starts on its eastern

Attempt to Wreck an A.,
B. &C. Suburban Car.
Was Crowded With Returning Pic
nickers No One Injured.
A dastardly attempt to wreck a
Broadway car was made Thursday
night about 10 o'clock, says the
Cleveland Plain Dealer. Luckily,
however, the first car to pass after
the explosive had been placed upon
the track wab a large A., B. & C. sub
urban car. The car had been crowded
with picnickers returning from Silver
When the car reached the city

ed, leaving two women, a child and
seven men aboard. It is very proba
ble that had all the passengers re
mained on the car loss of life or
serioub injury might have resulted.
Before proceeding toward the Pub
lic square the conductor requested
all of the passengers to sit near the
center of the car. This was dune and
the forethought of the conductor did
much toward preventing the passen
gers being injured.
As the car reached Humboldt st.
on Broadway an explosion occurred
which raised the car .off the track.
The report was deafening and in
stantly the car was filled with dust
and smoke. Tho passengers were all
thrown from their seats and the con
ductor, who was standing in the
aisle, was precipitated through the
doorway to the rear platform. The
lights of the car were extinguished
by the trolley yleaving thewire. The
conductor was uninjured and called
to the passengers to keep their seats
as no damage had been bone. The
car proceeded on its way to the
It is not kuowu what sort of ex
plosive was used but it is thought
that had it been a smaller car the
accident would have proved more
serious. The front trucks passed
entirely over the explosion without
setting it otf and it was the rear part
of the car which was lifted into the
air. Considerable excitement pre
vailed in the neighborhood on ac
count of the explosion.

Rushing Trade In Automobile Bodies
The Frantz Body Mfg. Co., of this
city, builders for the trade of high
grade vehicle bodies, were obliged to
erect a large addition to their pres
ent'plant in South Akron in order to
meet the growing demand for their
goods. This firm, which -was but
lately added to Akron's industries,
makes a specialty of automobile
bodies, and reports a nice trade on
this line of work.
Manager!?. X. Frantz reports that
the company's representatives are
now calling on the trade making
contracts for the coming season, and
judging from the number of orders
booked for early shipment the com
ing season will be a "banner" year
for the body business.
