The Great Boss Does
Not Feel Secure
Unless His Own Diciples
Are on Guard.
Hiltabidlc's Good Words For
Third Ward Statesman Defeated by
Those skilled in reading botween
the lines thought they saw more
than a mere news item in the state
ment that Captain V. M. Hiltabidle
had resigned his position as superin
tendent of the northern division of
the Ohio canal.
It is known that Mr. Hiltabidle, in
opposition to the general edict of the
Hanna gang, worked in the interests
of Harry M. Daugherty, candidate
for the Republican nomination for
governor at the State convention
at Columbus, June 2, against Hanna's
protege, Judge Nash. Thjs was an
incident demonstrative of the fact
that Mr. Hiltabidle has the courage
of bis convictions in politics, and
wears no man's collar.
But no one doubted that the re
lentless boss, who had the audacity
to order his vassals to slay Hon. J.
Park Alexander right in ""the house
oi his friends," would in same man
ner attempt to mete out punishment
to"Mr."Hlltabidle for hts offene
that of voting against the will of the
big boss. So when Mr. Hiltabidle's
resignation was announced, the care
ful observer said bis punishment had
The appointment ofIrvin John
ston, son of Washington G.Johnston,
member of the Board of Public
Works, to fill the vacancy seemed
only to confirm the impression that
the whole move was a selfish political
deal, inspired by Hanna.
Mr. Hiltabidle's term does not ex
pire until next April. ,He will re
main in charge of the office until
Speaking of the matter the other
day to a reporter for the Democbat,
Mr. Hiltabidle said: "The impres
sion that I was asked to resign,
through the influenceof Mr. Hanna,
is absolutely without foundation.
The members of the State Board of
Public Workh. 'Messrs. Frank A.
Hoffman, of Delphos; Charles A.
Goddard, of Franklin Furnace, and
Washington G. Johnston of Ault
man are all friends of mine and have
been for years.
"I have heard that some of the
rabid Hannaites were sore on me, on
account of my working for Daugh
erty, but even if they had been in
strumental in asking for my resigna
tion it would have done them no
good, as I wear no man's collar; no
one leads me at the end of his chain.
"I was for Harry Daugherty for
Governor, and I am proud of it, be
lieving him to be one of the brightest
Republicans in tiie state, and emi
nently capable of holding the office
to which he aspired.
"I merely resigned because I was
offered a better position with the
Manhattan Fire Insurance company
of New York."
"Are you, as a Republican, satis
fled with Mr. Hanna's methods of
campaigning?" was a question evad
ed as follows by Mr. Hiltabidle:
"I hope that Mr. McKinley will
select some other person than Mr.
Hanna to manage his next cam
paign." Hannaites Defeated Alexander.
Referring to Senator J. Park Alex
ander's recent disappointment at the
hands of the Hanna aggregation,
Generally fair to-night and
Mr. Hiltabidle said : "Had Hanna's
Summit county friends been with
Mr. Alexander, he would undoubt
edly have been given the second
term to the Senate, to which all men
are honestly entitled."
So it is to be seen that local Re
publicans are displaying no enthu
siasm over the movement of the
party under Mr. Hanna's manage
ment. Their manhood cries out
against the manner in which this
despotic ruler drags down into the
mire and pollutes those principles
made sacred by the immortal Lin
coln. No wonder! From Lincoln to
Mark Hanna! To what a narrow
point the Republican party's princi
ples have degenerated. "It is now
an epigram," was facetiously re
marked the other day.
A little more laying on of the lash,
defeating a candidate here, ousting
an officeholder there, and subduing
a questionable politician over yon
der, the Machine crashes on, while
reflective Republicans quietly ignore
the whole aggregation, sighing:
"How long, Oh, Lord, how long?"

Thrown Into Canal.
Its Cries Were Heard by
Could See the Child In
Matter Reported to Chief of
Canal Will be Dragged to Recover
Shortly before 8 o'-clock Monday
night Harvey Kauffman, a boarder
at the residence of William H. Eulitt,
who resides near Lock 2 of the can
al, heard a child cry in the vicinity
of the canal, near McClellan's plan
Accompanied by two friends,
Harry McLaughlin and Thomas
Peters of Bolivar, Mr. Kauffman
hastily ran down to the canal. The
cries seemed to come from the pool
just below lock 2.
After reaching the foot bridge Mr.
Kauffman struck several matches,
whose light enabled him to catch a
glimpse of a child's face as it rose to
the surface three times. The child,
he says, appeared to have been about
six months old, and it was impos
sible to rescue it as the men were
fully ten feet above the waters
As the men ran down to the canal
they fancied that they heard voices.
Before starting down they say the
child's cries were such as might in
dicate that it was being choked. It
is possiblejthat the infant was strang
led almost to death before it was
pitched into the water.
Win. Eulitt and Thomas Peters
notified Chief of Police Harrison of
the matter and he made a prelimi

and light, are exceedingly reasonable. This is a splendid opportunity
for such wide awake business men as will know how to make the best
of such a rare opportunity. Thousands of people will throng the
streets on the days of the Fair.
The space on the east side of Main st., between Mill and Quarry,
is also at the disposition of the committee. No booths will be erected
there but this space will be rented out to such parties as may wish to
