Official Paper of the City of
TO TELEPHONE THE DEMOCRAT CALL
BLUFFS OR STUPIDITY WHICH?
Ever since the Zanesville conven
tion the Hanna newspapers of Ohio
have tried to disparage the Hon.
John R. McLean's candidacy for
governor. At no time have they
accepted the situation as serious, but
instead have attempted to convince
their readers that by reason of Mr.
McLean's nomination the Republi
can party will have a walk over at
the polls in November. The Cleve
land World, itself an uncompromis
ing Hanna organ, rebukes its con
temporaries for their short sighted
ness. Says the World :
"We invariably measure eminent
men by the public positions they
hold or have held.
"That is, instead of the statue, we
size up the pedestal.
"If we were to judge John R. Mc
Lean by this common measurement
he would, appear but a sorry figure,
for, though in politics nearly all his
life, he has never held political office
never been set up above the level
of the eye.
"But McLean's influence m the
politics of the state has been, through
long years, too potent and too un
doubted to permit of his being judged
by so poor, a standard.
"No man has so 6teadily impress
ed for the last 20 years his force upon
the Democracy of Ohio as has John
R. McLean. Other leaders have
sprung into prominence, exerted a
fleeting influence, weakened and
dropped back into obscurity; many
have flourished and have faded; but
McLean has ever been the same
the one Ohio Democrat who hold the
power to eventually make or mar
any leader in the party. He has
been the first man that every .candi
date in recent years has consulted.
He has been the man with whose op
position Democratic defeat was ever
certain and without whose support
success was impossible. While
holding himself in the background,
he has been the foremost, and, while
never appearing at the head, he has
always boon tho real leader.
"Let no Republican lay the sweet
miction to his soul that John R.
McLean is inexperienced in practical
politics because he has never beoua
candidate before. No other man in
this state and few in any state
knows so well the tricks of effective
Coming as it does from a Hanna
organ, this is no scant tribute to the
seriousness of Mr. McLean's candi
dacy from a. Republican point of
view. The additional fact that
Judge Nash and Chairman Dick are
now touring the state imploring
their followers, as they did at Akron,
not to be too confident in the ap
proaching campaign, indicates very
clearly one of two things either
that tho Hanna newspaper bureau,
in belittling the candidacy of Mr.
McLean and making extravagant
claims of Republican succe.ss is
guilty of gross political stupidity, or
it is simply bluffing.
The Philadelphia Record has
figured out that there have been
seventeen Governors elected in Ohio
since the end of the civil war in 1865.
Of this number four wcro-Democrais.
The time is ripe for the election of a
Democrat this year in the evolution

tics, tho last Democrat Governor
Campbell having been elected ten
It -was an easy matter to bring
Judge Tibbals and Col. Sanford into
line for the Hanna candidate by
offering them front seats in the band
wagon on campaign opening day, but
how about the fellows whose only
recognition is an invitation to shake
hands with Judge Nash? The
Machine must regard them as very,
Eveby booth rented from the Fair
management by Akron's merchants

great entertainment. Merchants
whose places of business are not in
the down town district should all bo
represented" in the booths.
The surviving soldiers of the Civil
War, members of the G. A. R., are
still numerous enough to make a
niiigniflceiit showing in their na
tional encampment at Philadelphia.
Long life and happiness to the vet
erans. Moit3 than a hundred thousand
people will visit Akron throughout
the week of the Fair. Akron's citi
zens will join in giving them a cor
dial welcome and in making their
visit a pleasant one.

Every public building in Akron
will be arrayed in gorgeous colors
during the week of the Free Carnival

buildings should follow the example.
Every home in Akron should be
decorated throughout Street Fair
week with the national colors. This
will leave a pleasing impression upon
Akron's many visitors.

THE FATE OF THE MELON.
Whj- n. Hungry Family Waited For
It In Tain.
He was a family man, though evi
dently not of loug standing, for he had
not yet acquired the faculty of doing
the marketing without looking sheep
ish. Ke was buying provisions at a large
and central grocery the other day,
when for some reason or other he add
ed to the heap of parcels before him
a tine big watermelon.
"Going to carry them, did you say?"
remonstrated a clerk. "Melons are
mighty slippery. Better let me send it,"
But the family man shook his head
"I've stuck to them when I was go
ing at a dead run and climbing over
fences when I was younger, and I
guess I'll be able to stick to one now,"
he remarked loftily. "How much did
you say? AH right." And he strode
away with his possessions in his arms.
He might have got on very well If
he had not tried to look dignified. But
it Is hard for a man to look dignified
with a big watermelon under his aims.
At any rate he found it out, for as
he strode on to his car he felt an awful
slipping. There was no time to clutch.
Catch that car he must, and,. pressing
down on the slippery encumbrance as
bard as he could, but never deigning
to look at it, on he vent and was all
but safe, wbeu right at the car steps
there was a sudden slide, a crash, a
Juicy splutter, and there lay upon the
pavement the wreck of his melon.
He was dimly aware of a row of
grinning faces and a rush of news
boys to the. scene, but still stood, star
ing tragically down at the heap of
scarlet, while the car went on. Then,
nearly upset by the scrambling urchins,
he turned and strode away as dignified
as ever, but It's safe to predict that one
family at least went without melon
that night. Cleveland Plain Dealer.

saying he must not speak that way of
judges. M. Trarieux roplied that he
had not referred to judges, but to La
Colonol Jouaust then pointed out that
M. Trarieux was taking M. Labori 's
place and making a regular speech for
General Billot declared that M. Trar
ieux had delivered an eloquent oration,
but that it was special pleading for
Dreyfus and Picquart and m arraign
ment of former ministers.
General Billot praised Lieutenant
Colonel Picquart for his sorvicos iu tho
army, ana dec area mat no Had had the
greatest confidence in him a confidence
which, however, no had sinco been
compelled to withdraw. .
Replying to M. Labori, General Bil
lot accepted entire responsibility for tho
receipt given to Major Estorhazy for
the "document liberatour" by the chief
of tho cabMiut, aud expressed the opiu
iou that even r-roof of Esterhazy's guilt
would not acquit Droyfus, as often sev
eral culprits wore mixed up iu espion
age. The following was reported to
SI. Labori That goes without saying. But
excuse mo, Jlr. President, it- has never been
taid that Dreyfus had an accomplice in Ester
hazy. Wo must know If tho prosecution or
accusation is approaching that theory.
At this juncture tho prisoner startled
the court by shouting in ringing toues:

31. Labori I must submit to your ruling,

This retort by couusel for the defense
aroused immense excitement in tho
courtroom. Cheers broke out, drown
ing the murmurs of the generals and
Colouel Jouaus,t, after quiet had been
restored, remarked that if the.demon

would be cleared. The president of tfie

had any questions to put.
31. Labori I ieaiv respectfully; but since it
is impossible for me to approach those ques
