Backing Steel Plant,
Which Will be Erected
Near This City.
Is Splendidly Located
If present plans do not miscarry,
an immense steel plant will be erect
ed on tho Foust fnrm about midway
between Akron and Barberton.
This great industry may prove the
connecting link, that will bring Bar
berton and New Portage into Akron.
The property sold was owned by
George Foust. Thero are 40 acres in
the tract. The consideration was
$8,000, $200 per acre.
The land is located west of the
Erie railroad and a little south of
Halo. The Akron & Cuyahoga Falls
Rapid Transit lines pass it, the tract
being between the steam and elec
tric railroads. Negotiations for the
transfer have been pending for some
time. The deal was closed Tuesday.
The purchaser represents the John
ston Steel company. The matte
was kept quiet until the terms had
been agreed upon.
The site is an excellent one for a
steel, plant. . It is adjacent to the
, and C, A. & C. rail-
the canal. Switches can
be builMo the plant with little diffi
culty, giving the best shipping facil
ities. People in the vicinity are en
thusiastic over the projects and real
estate has jumped to a high figure.
It is said that work on the plant will
commence this fall, and that the
plant will be pushed to completion
as rapidly as possible. No estimate
of the cost of the plant or the num
ber of men to be employed is obtain
able. It is claimed however, that it
will be an immense affair. This is in
dicated by the large amount of land
Zlmmerly Bros, are ereoting a
large packing and slaughter house
near Halo. It will have a much
larger capacity than anything of
the kind in this vicinity.

Enormous Campaign Fund For
Betting That Favors McLean
At thoaneeting of the Akron Bar
bers' union Monday night Mr. Frank
Henderson paid the following tribute
to Hon. Chas. W. Kempel :
"I take it for granted, gentlpim-n,
that you will pardon mo for intro
ducing politics before this body, but
I do not exactly consider that of
which I shall speak as a direct mat
ter of politics. It is more of a re
ciprocal! nature. I urge the mem
bers of this body to do all within
their power to bring about the elec
tion of one who has labored earnest
ly iu the behalf of labor a member
of the Central Labor Union, and
who worked hard in tho Legislature
te secure a barbers' license. I refer
you to Hon. Chas. W. Kempel, a
man who knows what it is to work
and who has a big-hearted way of
showing Sis appreciation of his fel
low man: Every member of this
union, irrespective of party, should
vote for him."
Rev. W. F. Crispin told a Demo

that hehad again been approached
by a lojal Republican, whom.he.be

the officeis and influential members
of the local Prohibition paity to use
his influence to obtain the entire
Prohibition vote for C. F. Seese, the
Republican candidate for Repre
sentative. Rev. Crispin told hib visitor that
he had set forth his views upon the
question in Solid Facts last week.
He reiterated that the Prohibition
party cannot be cajoled Into slaught-ering-any
of the candidates upon its
ticket for the benefit of old party
candidates, and expressed surprise
at the persistence of the efforts being
made to capture the Prohibition
vote in behalf of Mr. Seese. The In
dications are that Mr.Seese's friends
are badly frightened over the out
look , -- "
"I find that there are a great many
prominent Republicans in Summit
county who are much dissatisfied
with the Amlnistration's imperial
istic policy," said Rev. Crispin.
Prohibitionists are hopeful that

many Republicans who dislike to
vote the Democraticticket will sup

Mr. Rowley is treasurer of the Re

funds. Candidates are in a combine.
They direct all applicants for assist
ance to their agent, who has the
reputation of being able to determine
the cash value of every petty politi

informed a Democrat reporter Tues
day that $ 5,000 would be expended
by the candidates in Akron alone,
exclusive of the funds sent here by
the State Executive committee.
With an unlimited amount of
money tno Republicans expect to
create wild enthusiasm for the ticket
between now and election time.

anti-Hanna Republicans in the state,
a close friend and confidant of Chas.
L. Kurtz, and the stoward of the
