Thk happiest men in Akron today
are those who have had charge of the
Street Fair management. Their
labors have been well done, as the
next four days will prove. Public
spirit, enterprise and persoverence
such as they have shown in their
efforts to make the great popular
enterprise a success deserves much
Mass meetings of Democrats rep
resenting all factions of the party in
f-lpvfiland have denounced the
Cleveland Plain Dealer for bolting
thfi ticket nominated at Zanesvine,
"The Plain Dealer does not in the
ioof Tonresent Democratic senti
ment in Cuyahoga county," is the
message sent by the mass meetings
to Democrats of other counties. As
a bolter the Plain Dealer is in a class
all by itself. It has been there before.
The Beacon is trying to put 'Squire
A. W. Hall out of action in this cam
paign by abusing him. It charges
that he has no political influence
anyhow, and that the local Republi
can Machine ought to pay no atten
tion to him. It will be difficult to
convince Charley Hatch, defeated
candidate for County Commissioner,
and "Wash Johnston, who ran 300
votes behind his ticket last fall, that
'Squire Hall and tis independent
Republican following are without in-
fliiHnRfi if thev choose to make it
Fob the past two- mouths of the
fiscal year the government has spent
the enormous sum of $103,000,000, of
which all but $21,000,000 was for war
like xpenses. Of this amount $34,-
202,080.06 went to the army, $9,688,
245.40 to the navy; $26,055,074.80 for
pensions, and $9,153,845.38 for inter
est on the war debt, tho expenses
being at the rate of nearly $500,000,
000 a year. This means that of the
Tftst amount of taxes collected from
the American people by the federal
government, about 80 per cent, are to
provide for the military expenses.
At this rate a great deal of trade will
have to follow the flag if tho people
are to bo remunerated for the onerous
burden of taxation which the Ad
ministration's trust favoring schemes
of conquest have thrust upon them.
In another column Judge C. R.
Grant dissects one of the careless
and misleading statements which
appeared in the Beacon last week
nurnortinrr to oe a "defense" of the
Administration's policy of Imperial
ism. The Beacon told of a postal
card vote taken "right where the
Atkinsonian 'aunties' were strong
esf and tried to show that the result
was "overwhelmingly" against the
views supposed to be held by the
"aunties." In this connection Judge
Grant put"; forward an array of facts
and figures which will make very
interesting reading for those who
accepted the "Beacon's conclusions
without suspicion of their unworthi
ness. He shows whatside the farmers
of America are taking on the question
of Imperialism vs. Republicanism.

CAUSE FOR APPREHENSION.
Veterans of the Civil War are very
much dissatisfied with the Adminis
tration's plan of loading the people
down with taxes in order to carry
out its selfish scheme of miliary
For the last two months the
"expenses of the government growing
out of its wars, chiefly those of the
last two -years, have been at the rate
of about half a billion a year a
burden that rests for the most part
upon the producing interests of the
The old soldiers know what this

Administration's present form of

European when ho is born "with an

A reaction against war taxation
will set in. Then will come retrench

will be tho old soldiers who are their
' nation's deserving pensioners.
Herring & Son Will dc the Work
There will be no more fast rides on
Akron street cars within the city
"Not to be run at a greater speed
than 12 miles an hour," stated the
ordinance passed at City Council
meeting Monday night. It is also
stated that the ordinance will be en
forced to the letter.
At Council meeting two
weeks ago the ordinance passed
second reading, when it was tabled
until the meeting a week ago. The
matter was then continued to Mon
day night's meeting, when it. was
placed on its final passage.
To Begin Work on Johnston Street.
Bids for the work of improving
Johnston st. are as follows: George
B. Herring & Son, $6,757.72; P. T.
McCourt, $7,212.92; J.- Wildes s
Sons, $6,920.48. While the lowest
bid has not been formally accepted,
nor will it be for some time yet,
Herring & Son, by reason of theirs
being the lowest bid, presuming that
they will be awarded the contract,
are willing to go ahead with the
work, providing Council would give
an expression of willingness to
stand bv them. This expression was
given by Council, and the work will
be commenced at once. Another
formality, that of there not being
sufficient money in tho treasury to
cover the improvements was in a
like manner dispensed with.
Mr. Brady made a motion that the
present license relating to peddlers
be repealed, from the fact that it
conflicts with residents of the city in
the same manner that it does with
strangers coming into the city to
peddle wares about the streets. The
matter will likely he considered
Change in Equalizing Boord.
By reason of B. F. Clark's, being a
member of the board to assess dam

the law that he also serve on the

pointed a week ago. A new resolu
tion was introduced and Ebenezer
Lewis was placed on the equalizing
board along with August Haberkost

of the Goodrich band stating that I
should be pleased to engage the ser
vices of their bands for the fair. Mr.
Ranck called ou me on August 4. I
tnld him that I could pay $2.50 per

to encage his band, consisting of 25
nieces, for two days of the fair, with
the privilege on my part oi ihhmi

"On August 7th Mr. A. C. Light,
leader of the Goodrich band, came to
my office. I informed him that I
would like to engage his band, con
sisting of 25 pieces, for two days of
the fair, and that I could pay $2.50
per man per day. Tho result of our
conversation was a written contract
of which the following is a copy:

"Accepted, P. E. Werner.'
"I also then contracted with the
various bands located outside of Ak
ron in the different parts of bummii
"Several weeks before I had
made my arrangements with the
various city bands known to me
at that time, Mr. A. V. Foster
accosted me on the street and
informed me that he had a very
excellent band which he called Fos
ter's Concert band. I told him I was
not aware of this fact, but that if he
had a band he should make me a
proposition in writing. As a result
of this conversation Mr. Foster wrote
me on July 16th, the following letter:
'Akron, Ohio, July 16, 1899.

'Dear Sir: Inclosed you will And

"Ev'ii this did not fully satisfy me
that Mr. Foster had a band which
could he relied upon, and I therefore
suggested to him that he should, at
his first opportunity, present his
band to me that I might be able to
form an opinion. Ou August 10th,
Mr. Foster advised nie that on Tues
day morning, August 15th, he would
bring his band to my office at 9:lo
o'clock, so that I could see and hoar
it. This promise was carried out by
Mr. Foster, and on August 16th I
wrote Mr. Foster that I could oflre
his band'an engagement at the Fair,
18 men, one day, for $2.50 per man,
which proposition he accepted on
August 18th. "His letter reads as

it will be as many days ao possible,

can favor me with the date or dates

"This completed all my contracts
with the Akron bands.
"Several .weeks ago E B. Sisler,
who claims to he f lie manager of the
K. O. T. M. hand, and A. C. Light,
leader of the Goodrich liand, came to
my office and stated that there was
considerable di-satisfaction among
their ipen because they understood
that the Eighth Regiment band
would receive more per man per day
than I contrasted for with other
bands. I told these gentlemen that
this was not tho eabo and, at Mr.
Sisler's suggestion I wrote him a let
ter stating that the Eighth Regiment
hand was engaged at tho rate of $2.50
nor man per day. As far as I was
concerned I took it for granted that
evervthiuir.was satisfactory in fact
I gave this matter no fuither consid
oration, as I had written contracts
with all the bunds. On August 29th
I compiled and issued tho official
urogram for tho fair, which wnb pub
lished in all tho newspapers, and
mailed to each leaderof the different
bands a copy of the same so that they
might-bo fully informed with regard

to the disposition of the "various
bands ou the different dates and at
the various locations. In my letter
accompanying the copy of the official
program I asked the leaders to notify
me whether the disposition of their
band was satisfactory to them.
Prompt replies were received from
the leaders of all the bands except
from the leaders of the Goodrich and
K. O. T. M. bands. Mr. Foster wrote
me as follows :
'Akron O., Aug. 30, 1899.
'Mr. P. E. Werner, Akron, O.
Dear Sir Your letter of the 29th

your favor and accept Thursday and

that you will be more than pleased
vith my band, for I will do all I can
to make it a go, and the best one in
the city. Thanking you again, I am,
'C. A. Foster.'
"As no replies wore received from
the leaders of the Goodrich and K.O.
T.M. bands, I wrote them again on
September 2 as follows:
'Akron, O., Sept. 2, 1899.
'Dear Sir On Auir. 29th I wiote
vou a letter which you no doubt re
ceived on the 30th. In it I requested
the acknowledgment of the same.
You have had your letter three days
and I have not received an acknow
ledgment. I now enclose a stamped
envelope so that you will not have to
incur any expense in sending me
your reply, and I hope to receive it
on Monday at the latest.
'Yours very respectfully,
P. E. Werner,
'Chairman Exec. Com.'
"No reply from either of the above
mentioned baud leaders was received
to my second letter. On September
5th Mr. Foster called at myofficeand
stated that there was dissatisfaction
his men had left him and that he
could not fulfill his engagement for
the fair, notwithstanding the con
tract he had entered into with me in
writing. L told him plainly what I
thought of his actions and, m tne
course of the conversation with Mr.
Foster, I made up my mind that he
had been made the scape-goat ot
others. I mistrusted that something
was wrong with the Goodrich and
K. O. T. M. bands, and I then de
cided to send Messrs. Jesse P. Dice
and E. M. Robinson, two young
gentlemen who were soliciting and
collecting funds for -me for the fair,
to E. B. Sisler, the manager of the
K. O. T. M. band, as I had been in
formed that A. G. Ranck, the leader
of the band, was absent from tho
city, and the leader of the Goodrich
hand, in order to find out the cause
of not receiving a reply to my last
communication. Messrs. Dice and
Robinson reported to me. the follow
ing day, that the two gentlemen
acted very peculiarly, found a great
deal of fault, stated it was reported
that tho Eighth Regiment band was
receiving more money than their
bands, and on general principles
acted in a manner which was a great,
surprise to my representatives. T
could not believe that it would be
possible that these two bands would
revoke the contracts they had en
tered into with me for the fair. I
then gave Mr. Dice the original con
tract made with the Eight Regiment
band, asking him to show the same
to the two gentlemen and to
endeavor lo obtain their promise
that they would carry out their writ
ten contract with nie. Mr. Dice in
formed mo that he was unsuccessful
with them that these two band
managers absolutely reiuseu to car
ry out their written agreements and
that they considered their engage
ments with me cancelled. Mr. Dice
also informed me that the managers
of the Goodrich, K. O. T. M. and
Fosters bauds had, on August 31st,
entered into an agreement between
themselves, of which he gave me a
copy, and which is as follows:
'Akron. O., Aug. 31st.
'We, the undersigned, K. O. T. M.
baud, Goodrich "band and Foster's
Concert band of tho city of Akron,
do hereby refuse to fill any engage
ment whatever nt the Akron Street
Fair and Cnrnival, to be held m our
city for Sept. 13 to If!, inclusive.
'E. B. Sisler,
- 'A. G. Light,
'C. A. Foster.'
"From this it is evident that, near
ly one month after the contracts
were made in writing with the above
mentioned bands, the leaders -of
these three bands entered into a
conspiracy, the result of which was
their sweeping agreement copied
'Ordinarily 1 would give a matter
of this kind very little attention and
very little thought, but. since the en
tire public is interested in the Street
Fair, I concluded to make known the
facts. It is unnecessary to make any
