Deserted Judge Nash
To Follow the Hero of
Change In Program
After Roosevelt Quit Talking It
Was All Over.
Senator Alexander "Doing as He
The speaking program Roosevelt
day was changed so that at Grace
park, in the afternoon, Governor
Roosevelt spoke first, and Hon. Geo.
K. Nash followed. This change was
necessitated by Roosevelt's being
obliged to leave the city earlier than
But the change was a great mis
fortune. The worst fears of the ex
ecutive committee were realized.
When Roosevelt's speech was con
cluded the crowds almost deserted
During Roosevelt's speech there
were present between 5,000 and 10,
000 people. The Governor read his
speech. His delivery was tedious,
and he was very seldom inter
rupted with applause. The people
apparently did not realize that
they were listening to one of the
greatest heroes of the Spanish-American
war. It was really-embarrassing,
the lack of enthusiasm.
But when Judge Nash was intro
duced, amid the wild cheers of the
oommittee on the grand stand, it was
particularly noticeable that those
who cheered were persons who were
obliged to do so by their affiliation
with the powers that be. Very few
of the Republicans who think and
do as they please were present to as
sist in the cheering. They were en
route for the down-town districts to
derive what pleasure they could
from the brass bands and visiting
delegates. The grand symphony
rendition of "America" by all bands
present at the park at the conclusion
of the exercises did not materialize,
from the fact that but two bands re
mained. It must have been very embarrss
ing to Judge Nash to witness the
disappearance of the crowds when he
was introduced. It was really a
great breach of etiquette on 'the part
of the people, but perhaps the great
er number had not received direc
tions before they congregated. Even
a fair-sized crowd left the grand
stand. All but three or four of the
newspaper men also left their tables.
J. Park Alexander was there to re
ceive the visitors on the grand stand.
He made a few remarks to the crowd
relative to who were entitled to the
honor of seats on the stand. He was
merely working as a matter of form.
He was not enthusiastic, and said:
"lam merely following directions,
doing what I am instructed to do."
So far as any benefit to Candidate
Nash was concerned the meeting
was a '-frost." The people came to
see and hear Roosevelt. Gov. Bush-
n ell's friends did all in their power!
to wet blanket the- occasion by re
The Railsplitters of Toledo, made
the hit of the day. Attired in neat
fitting uniforms of purple and white,
the organization .presented a splen
did appearance. All along the line
of march they were enthusiastically
applauded. They executed numer
ous difficult foot movements that
showed a perfect knowledge of
inarching tactics. The club was
headed by the Toledo Marine band,
36 pieces, one of the best in the State.
Immediately after the parade the
band serenaded the Daily Demo-
Fair tonight and Tuesday; cooler
tonight with probably heavy frost in
cbat. It -was accompanied by the
Railsplitters and the Lincoln club.
During the day it was rumored
that Senator Hauna was to deliver
one of his characteristic addresses at
Grace park. Lovers of oratory were
at the park to hear him, but he dis
appointed them. Uncle Mark was
there but he had nothing to say,
aside from the orders he gave to his
agents. It was rumored Saturday
night that at a conference of the
friends of Judge Nash it was decided
to have Tho "Senator keep in the
background as much as possible
throughout the campaign. Mark
has something to say about that. He
is not going to take his orders from
his own lieutenants.
In the parade there were 25 bands,
composed of 635 musicians, an aver
age of one Kornblower to every 5J-J
men in line. The musicians
received upon an average of $2.60 per
day for their services, which does
not include transportation. The sal
ary of the players for Saturday was
at least $1,337.50.. Add to this $2 per
man for transportation and expenses
and it will be seen that the music
alone cost Uncle Mark in the neigh
borhood of $2,500. And this was only
one small item of the expense. His
barrel is big and round, but, it was hit
Very few of those who were in the
down town section followed the pa
rade to Grace park. They were out
to see the parade and hear the brass
bands. After the marchers had pass
ed enthusiasm was at low tide.
In an interview at Cleveland with
a Plain Dealer reporter Senator
Hauna had the following to say of
his meeting here in Akron:
"The meeting at Akron," he said
in answer to a question, "went far
beyond our expectations'. The
crowd was larger and the enthusiasm
ran higher than we had hoped for.
It was a grand success all the. way
through. The campaign opening
could not have been opened under
"Was Roosevelt's reception as en
thusiastic as.given him in the east
on such occasions?"
"He was given a rousing recepj
tion," said Mr. Hanua, "and I think
it was equal to anything that could
be done for him anywhare. I never
was present at any ot his eastern
"Did it satisfy you to see state is
sues left out of the speeches of
Roosevelt and Nash?"
"Yes, sir, it did. I was entirely
"Will .State issues come up any
more in the future during the cam
paign thaii they have already?"
"I don't know. 1 am not running
"Will you answer this question,"
was next-asked. "Will the Republi
cans make as much of State issues in
this campaign as do the Demo
crats?" In answer to thiB question Mr.
Hanna replied :
"Do you remember whai I said in
Columbus once? Well, I said there
that we knew our own business."
This was expected to put an end to
any further questions on that sub
ject, but one more was asked as to
this discussion of trusts and the tar
iff, to which he replied:
"No, sir; I cannot answer that. I
refuse to talk on that question."
That harmony doe's not exist in
the ranks of the Republican factions
in this city was made manifest to
day in a very decided manner, when
Charles Galloway, clerk of the
courts, and a strong follower of the
Kurtz-Bushnell faction, refused to
permit his deputies to attend the
Nash-Hanna opening at Akron, says
a special. Two of these clerks, Jos
eph Lott and Charles Frank, are
members of the Republican Glee
Club, and were desirous of attending
tiie Akron meeting. Apparently
they were reluctant about asking
permission to attend the meeting,
and Prof. W. H. Lott, musical direc
tor of the club, was selected to do
the asking. Mr. Lott called up the
clerk's office by telephone and asked
to talk to Mr. Galloway. The clerk
was busy at the time, and Jacob
Reed, who answered thu telephone,
asked if any message should be sent
to his boss.
"Ask him," said Mr. Lott, "if Joe
Lott and Charley Frank can get off

Mr. Galloway's response was to
"Tell him," said the clerk, "that
neither Joe Lott nor any other man
in my office can go to Akron Satur
day." This was the end of the conversa
tion, andas' a naturaf result, the en
tire office force was at work Satur
day. It is rumored that from now on
the Kurtz-Bushnell people will make
an open fight on Judge Nash and
everybody on the county ticket who
is allied with the Hanna forces.
The Democrat was the only local
paper Saturday which gave figures
showing the number of men in line.
By actual count, 2,918 men, women
and children passed this office in the
parade. The Sunday World's count
increases the number 25, the re
porter from that paper making it

Of Great Reputation
Will be Present at State
Of Ohio Woman Sufferage
Mrs. Jack Casement the First
Never Lost an Opportunity to
The coming annual convention of
the Ohio State Woman Suffrage As
sociation which convenes in Akron,
October 2 and 3, bids fair to be one'of
the most interesting ever held by
this association, says Elnora M.
Babct ck in the Cleveland World.
Quite a number of Cleveland wom
en are on committees of the State
organization and a large delegation
from this city will attend the con
vention. Among the prominent women who
will deliver addresses during the
convention are: Mrs. Carrie Chap
man Catt of New York, national or
ganizer and lecturer, and one of the
most eloquent speakers upon the
public platform ; Mrs. Harriet Tay
lor Upton of Warren, O., treasurer
National Suffrage association, and
Rev. Henrietta G. Moore of Spring
field, O. Miss Moore is pastor of a
large cliurch in Springfield, and lias
lectured in every state and territory
in the Union. She is a .direct de
scendant from a member of the
"Boston Tea Party" and inherits the
same love of liberty which has made
her ancestors immortal.
The present association was organ
ized in 1885, with Hon. Ezra B. Tay
lor, father of Harriet Taylor Upton,
as president. Judge Taylor was an
Of Equal Rights,
but owing to his many duties as a
member of congress, he was obliged
to decline the office, and the vice
president, Mrs. Frances Casement,
became president. Mrs. Casement is
the wife of Gen. "Jack" Casement.
Their home is in Painesville, but at
present they are in Costa Rico.where
the general is building a railroad.
Judge Taylor never lost an oppor-
xTttnity to lend a helping hand to the
cause oi woman simexage, ana wnen
in congress he was chairman of the
judiciary.committee which bro'ught
in a majority report in favor of a
sixteenth amendment, giving women
the right to vote. He wrote Miss
Anthony that his daughter, Harriet,
who was a most wonderful woman,
was largely influential in bringing
about the favorable result.
Mrs. Caroline McCollough Ever
hard, of Massillou, was the second
president. She is a beautiful, rich
and highly accomplished lady. On
the night that the news of McKin
ley's election became known Mrs.
Everhard went to Canton and
was the first person to
congratulate Mr. McKinley. Mrs.
Everhard is a director of one of the
Massillon banks. She has three
children all of whom are married.
The present president, Mrs. Har
riet Brown Stanton of Cincinnati, is
a modest, retiring woman of Quaker
ancestry, the wife of a prominent
physician and a member of the state
board of health. Her husband is as
ardent a suffragist'as herself, and his
sister, Caroline Stanton, was one of
the secretaries of the second wo
man's rights convention held in this
country at Salem, O.
Mrs. Louisa Southworth and Mrs.
Darius Caldwoll of this city are

Get Republican Support.
Cant. Jos. H. Dowling. who is one
of Dayton's prominent Democrats,
and closely identified with the par
ty's State organization, called at the
Democrat office while in Akron,
"I am here to get a few pointers
upon Mr. Hanna's campaign open
ing," said Capt. Dowling. "I've
heard a great many Republicans say
today that they regard the meeting
as a frost, to far as any benefit to
Judge Nash is concerned. Roose
velt is the whole thing. You can say
that with fine weather, the Demo
crats will have one of the greatest
campaign openings at Hamilton on
next Saturday that ever happened.
More than" 20,000 people will be there,
exclusive of the Cincinnati delega-
tion. Hon. John R. McLean is going
to be ,()hio'R next Governor. Our
ticket will get solid Democratic sup
port, while thousands of Republi
cans will vote for our candidates as a
rebuke to Hannaism, imperialism
and war taxation."
Capt. Dowling said that an invita
tion had been extended by the Ex
ecutive committee to Judge C. R.
Grant of Akron, to deliver an ad
dress at the Hamilton meeting.
Forthe Home on Sanctity
J. E. Bushnelfs Sermon
Trinity Lutheran Church.
Rev.J. E. Bushnell, at the request
of theLTinverXeague of the Trinity
Lutheran church, preached an inter
esting and instructive sermon on "A
Lesson for the Home on the
Sanctity of Marriage" last evening.
Rev. Bushnell related mauy prac
tical problems that arise in married
life, and told how to solve them. He
emphasized the fact that marriage
was a divine appointment of God
and therefore it should not be lightly
spoken of in our common fellowship.
God iutended that marriage should
be a blessing to man. and he is ap
pointed the only sacred foundation
of a home.
Speakingon the subject of divorces,
he said that it appears that in no
case that the Lord'did advise or ap
prove of divorces in the sense of
authorizing a woman of separation
to marry again. He was, at this
point, careful to put stress on the
fact that a separation between hus
band "and wife is often justified on
grounds of cruelty and other rea
sons, but in such cases the state or
church should not authorize such
parties to marry again.
In Act of
Undertaker Geo Billow and Clar
ence Serfass detected two men at

The men were frightened away.
They had the harness out of the

One of the fellows appeared at the

they make an evening call they will
be treated to a hot reception.

Of the Robbed Girl's
Sister Was Brown.
Two Alleged Burglars Brought to
Akron One Pleads Guilty.
Ther? is a very interesting story
connected with tho burglary of the
residence of Mrs. Anna Souers, 270
Carroll st. last Thursday morning.
Through the clever work of Sheriff
Kellv. assisted by Detectives De-
Celle and Doran, two men are in cus
tody, one of whom has pleaded
guilty to a charge of grand larceny.
The men were arrested in Cleve
land, Friday. They were brought to
Akron, Sunday. They registered as
Curtiss Brown and Mike Murray.
The last named, it is claimed by the
officers, is a man with an extensive
record. Brown formerly lived in
Cleveland and is not so well known.
For some time he was the favored
friend of a sister of Miss Susan L.
Beatty. It was while calling on the
sister that he discovered the fact
that Miss Beatty wore a beautiful
diamond ring. He communicated
the news to Murray and plans were
laid for the robbery. Miss Beatty
lived at the Souers residence and
Brown was familiar with the house.
The night of the robbery Miss Beatty
recognized Brown's voice, this lead
ing to his arreBt. He entered a plea
of guilty in Police court and was
taken to the county jail. Murray
claims he is innocent. He will have
a hearing Thursday.
