to do with it.
The Akron Democratic club Is the
first organization in the State to
receive its charter under the newly
organized Association of the Ohio
Democratic clubs. Tho Akron club
will be known as Number 1. It will
continue to rank first, in point of
membership, enthusiasm and effec
tive work for the cause of Democ
racy, as well as in name.
Akron people will hardly know
their own city during the Free Fair

Oriental decorations and surround

of busy workmen. The plans now

O'Neil & Co. and J. Koch & Co. con

transformation in Howard and Main
streets for the Fair.
It is the same old story in the case
of Representative Rutan of Carroll
county. Mr. Rutan has been a life
long Republican, but having had the
independence to denounce Hanna
and bossism, he was defeated for
re-nomination by the Hanna men at
the Carroll county primaries, "Wed

Akroj is coming right to the front
as a convention city. Among the
conventions to be held herenextyear
will be the Sons of St. George and
the German "Warriors of America.
And but for the bigoted interference
of Judge "Anderson, who, acting,
through his proxies on the Board
of City Commissioners, prevented
Akron from having representation in
the League of Ohio Municipalities,
Akron would have had the honor of
" entertaining the state convention of
the League next year. Two years
hence, thanks to the enterprise of
Akron's Maccabees, the Knights
and Ladies of the Maccabees will
have their big convention at Akron.
Akron should be as well prepared to
entertain conventions as any city of
her class in the land. Conventions
benefit and advertise the city, so let
them come, the more the better.
The nation is now in one of the
greatest crises of its history. If
ever there was a time when the
people should think and act for
themselves, it is now. TheAdminis-
tration is committed to policies,
which, if persisted in, must ulti
mately change the entire structure
of the government, desttoying the
very foundations of popular liberty
upon which our Republic rests. It
would seem thnt in such a time the
people should be given every oppor
tunity to consider and decide these
great issues for themselves, in an
intelligent aud dispassionate nanner.
and according to their own best
judgment. But this is not going to
be tho policy of Mr. Hanna's party in
the campaign of 1899, especially in
Ohio. Instead of inviting the peoph
to a careful consideration of issues

SATURDAY, AUGUST 19
tract their attention from the issues
by a liberal use of red fire and brass
bands, and by importing an army
of federal office holders into Ohio to
shout the praises of their patron, the
Administration. Already this pro
gram is becoming very much in evi
dence. The Democratic party, rein
forced by the thousands of Republi
cans who are at variance with the
imperial and trust favoring policies
of the Aministration, will have to
meet this program as it was met in 1896
by asking the people to do their own
thinking and to vote their convic
tions accordingly as they believe to
be to the best interests of themselves
and their country.

Tone. The leaven and the meal. Math, xiii,
S3; Dan. ii, 31-S3, 45. (A missionary meeting.)
The ultimate diffusion of Christiani
ty throughout the world and its tri
umph over the kingdoms of the world
are assured. Christ's parable of tho
leaven and the meal bears testimony to
the first statement, and Daniel's inter
pretation of the dream of Nebuchadnez
zar to the second. But these references
also point out some of the characteris
tics of tho worldwide spread and tri
umph of Christ's kingdom
1. Christ's kingdom is to spread
gradually throughout the world. Small
in the beginning, yet gradually the
leaven diffuses itself throughout all the
meal. One part is leavened, and it
leavens another until the whole is leav
ened. How characteristic of the growth
of Christ's kingdom. First two disciples
called; then 13; at the ascension, 500:
at Pentecost, 3,000; today millions un
der every climo in tho world. First
Asia Minor, which touches continental
Europe, which in turn leavens England,
which leavens America, and today Eng
land and America are touching and
leavening the world Gradually, hut
surely, the kingdom spreads, and. if
discouraged that it is rot fast enough,
let us recall the parable of the leaven.
3 The spread of Christ's kingdom is
to be universal. The sprad of the leav
en was gradual, but at last it leavened
the whole lump, and the stone not only
smote the image, but became a great
mountain aud filled the whole earth
Christ's kingdom i3 to be a worldwide
kingdom Men have tried to found uni
versal kingdoms, but have failed
Worldwide empire has been the dream
of more than one earthly potentate, bnt
baa always failed of realization But
Christ will not fail. His kingdom shall
extend from eea to sea and from the
rivers to the ends of the earth
3 Christ's kingdom will triumph
over all other kingdoms In Nebuchad
nezzar's dream the kingdoms of the
world were represented by an image ,
composed of various metals. Christ's I
by a stone cut out without bands, and i
the stone smote the image, and break j
in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay. I
the silver and the gold. Thus symboliz-!
ing the final triumph of Christ's kingt j
dom over the kingdoms of the world
The kingdoms of tho world that oppose
tue Kingdoms or Christ ehall be over
thrown. Those that accept Him shall
be governed by Him. and thus all king
doms shall be conquered by Him.
What a blessed privilege we shall
esteem it to have some part in this uni
versal spread of the kingdom of Christ
Are we doing onr part of the work? If
we have been leavened, are we leaven
ing others at home, abroad, that the
whole world may be leavened? If not,
may we not question onr own leaven
ing ! Can we be saved and not inter
ested in the salvation of others J

A Minister's Dasinefis.
A minister of the gospel should be
looked upon as as much of an authority
and as skilled an adviser in things spir
itual as a doctor is in matters of health
and a lawyer in matters of property.
And it is the minister's business to be
as well informed and able to advise
thoe in his care as the family physician
or the family lawyer. To be such he
must be not only familiar with his doc
trine, but eaturated with the Epirit of
the Bible, imbned with the mind of
Christ, have the heart and genius of a
pastor and such knowledge of human
n.itnro and fact in dealing with all
classes of men as will enable him at
once to know and appreciate the needs
of his people and satisfy them by dis
pensing to them the rich treasures of
truth and grace over which Christ has
made bini a steward. Reformed
A Time For Common Sense.
Now is the time for the sober,
thoughtful, intelligent body of the
American people to assert itself. We
must not be stampeded in either direc
tion or by any leaders, no matter how
distinguished No false glitter of pa
triotism mnst be allowed to dazzle ns
into losing sight of what trne patriot
ism means. Now is the hour for com
mon sense shrewd, hard, dogged com
mon sense, which cannot be fooled or
cajoled or browbeaten to assert itself.
Whatever our decision, let it be made
calmly, intelligently and as in the Di
vine sight Thus only can we reason
ably expect the Almighty to bless the
United States henceforth, as heretofore
("The heart is deceitful above all things and

All. me! rbere lurks not greater foe without

The Master taught
That deadlier enemy to self than self
Mortal hath not.
Life's iesues or of good or aril trend
Lie all within;
He who would not bit up holy hands must guard

Oh. Thou Eternal One, who searching eye
Burdened with conscious guilt, to Thee we come
In mute despair.
Cover our mortal weakness with Thy strength
And make us bold

Thus, with life's fountain head made clean and
Life shall be pure.
Nor can deceit or wickedness long vex
Heart so secure.

A HANDICAP TO TRADE.
Dan's BevltoW Sajs It 1 the Advance In
Prices The Shortage of Steel.
New Tore, Aug. 19. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade issued to
day said in part:
The Cramps have discharged many
hundred hands, and ask Russia to ex
tend time for completion of two war
ships because they cannot get the steel.
Completion of 21 out of 37 vessels build
ing iu the Delaware is also affected. It
is a curious experience for this country,
butshowb the gigantic expansion of
home demand. No one can question the
fact that payments through the princi
pal clearinghouses have been in August
M.9 ner cent larger than in 1892 for the
mouth thus far, and outside New York
23 per cent.
No better test of the volume of busi
ness is kuown, but there is a growing
handicap in the advance of prices.
How loug and how far this advance can
go without reaction is the problem
which level-headed business men are
studying. Evidences of checked con
sumption are rare, but it would be
childish to hopo that at some point
higher prices would not hinder buying.
In iron tho quesition of steel billets,
which the great consuming companies
liave bought far in advance, so that all
new orders have a narrow market. For
six months billets have sold at $i to $0
higner than the rails made from them.
Other demands, not covered by con
tracts, are mainly for various shapes
and sizes, only prescribed iu contracts.
While prices have risen 25 cents for
southern pigiron, 00 cents for Chicago
local coke and 75 ceuts for Grey forge
at Pittsburg, rails have advanced $1 per
ton, with, woru covered tor all tue year,
and 400,000 tous or more taken .beyond
what can be delivered until next year.
Other finished products do not change,
although tho demaud at all points ex

in the same weeks of 1892. Goods have
advanced further, especially iu cassi
nieres, cheiot aud cotton warp cajsh
ineres, and the tendeucy is upward in

Wheat has advanced about 1 cent dur

Exports ot wheat in three weeks have

Atlantic coast aud it is expected they
will be reaay to sail by the iniddlo of
October aud will Uko three regiments
via the Suez canal.
At tho latest calculation it is now be
hoved to be possible to land all the new
regiments in the Philippines by Dec. 1,
or very soon at tor that date.
Wnile it may not be necessary to use
all the troops- in the Philippines, it is
understood to be the plan of Secretary
Root to have a sufficient force to not
only defeat the insurgents at every
point, but to garrison and hold the
places that may be taken and thus in
sure a safe line of communication.
