THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28
Vote for the Republican county
ticket andHigher Salaries !
Trusts are raising the price of
everything the people have to buy.
How much are your products and
labor increasing in value?
"What farmer or workingman in
Summit county can make $8,000 in a
single year? This is what some of the
offices at the court house pay their
incumbents. If you believe in a con
tinuation of these high salaries, vote
for the candidates nominated by the
local Republican Machine.
REFKESEJ.TATIVE KeJIPEL is
pledged by his party's platform to
introduce a bill in the next legisla
ture doing away with the fee system
under which Summit county's office
holders receive from $0,000 to $8,000 a
year. No other candidate before the
people is so pledged. Vote for Mr.

Dobson paper calls Representative

the people of Summit county, espe

well satisfied with Mr. Kemper's
record and they are going to give him
To date the only thing the Dobson
paper has been able to say against
the candidates upon the Democratic
county ticket is that they are "non
entities," "do-nothings," "wooden
men" and "weaklings." It is an
easy matter to call candidates for
public office harsh names; it is
another matter to convince the peo
ple that they are deserving of fiuoh
Representative Charles W.
Kempel was referred to as a
"wooden man" by the Beacon last
night. If there had been a few more
wooden men like Mr. Kempel in the
last Legislature the Republican
office-holders of Summit county
would not have succeeded in defeat
ing the Russell Salary bill when
they sent men and money to Colum
bus to work against it.
Chairman Stuart will be con
ferring a favor upon the people by
pointing out to them what great
public enterprise Judge Anderson
has ever headed. Who knew with
certainty where he stood while
Akron'-? citizens were trying to force
fiie Telephone Monopoly to recognize
their rights? Ask Senator Alexan
der, who was the head of the Citi
zens' Committee of Fifty, whether
very much dependence was placed
in the Judge's professions to stand
by the people.
Whes Judge Anderson wants an
office he relies upon his own political
machine to ;pull him through.
"When the other fellows are up for
election they have to use a crowbar
to move the Judge along. Some of
the other fellows now holding office
at the court house have caught on to
this quaint characteristic of the
Judge. The grim satisfaction with
which they are wet blanketing his
canvass, carries a moral to all office
seekers who are always for them
selves and for nobody else.
Judge Andeksox and Clerk Her
shey are holding a series of secret
conferences throughout all the town
ships of the county. At these meet
ings the political healers who are a
part of the private political machines
of these candidates are called in.
How many of the farmers who have
to pay exorbitant fees and salaries
to these officials are invited into the
conferences and given a chance to
get back some of their own money
by working for the re-election of
Messrs. Anderson and Hershey?
Don't all speak at once.
Within the last thirty-five years
the fees of county officers have been
reduced several times by acts of the
Legislature, but an inspection of the
records of the court house will show
that in some cases fees collected to
day are higher than they were forty
3'ears ago. The Russell salary bill,
which was defeated by the efforts of
the Summit county office holders,
placed the officials on salaries and
did away with the obnoxious fee
system. Taxpayers who want to
save themselves $d0,000 a year in the
amount of compensation paid their
county officers, should vote the
The Democratic party believes in
increasing the money supply and
Never has the local Democratic party had the moral and active sup
port of so many of Summit county's prominent Republican voters as in
this fall's campaign.
In their many years of practically uninterrupted power the Republican
office-holders of the county have built up a powerful Machine, which not
only controls the affairs of their own party with an iron hand but pre
sumes to dictate what shall be done in every department of the local public
service, whether city or county.
This Machine's power has been made still more absolute by the finan
cial backing of the corporate interests, which, in exchange for liberal con
tributions to the campaign fund, expect to be repaid with privileges
at the expense of the people. The large contribution of the Telephone mo
nopoly to the Machine's campaign fund last fall and last spring, is a case
in evidence. Does not this explain why many local Republican officials
with a few honorable exceptions and the politicians who enjoy favors at
their hands, have acted as an organized lobbying commission to get fran
chise or similar grants through the Council or to control acts of the Legis
lature when the welfare of the corporate interests domauded it?
And that they have not been backward about lobbying for themselves
when their own interests demanded it, is clearly shown by their defeat of
the Russell salary bill.
Every Republican who has paid auy attention to his party's local affairs
knows that these are facts.
The Democratic party, at its 'County Convention last August, recog
nized the deplorable condition of affairs when it adopted the following
planks as a part of its platform:
10. We favor the enactment of laws reducing the compensation of
county officers, and promise to use our efforts to that end and in good
11. We denounce the system of Government by Probate Judge,
now practiced iu this county, under the auspices of the Republican
party, and we will elect a man who will abolish the same ana confine
himself to the duties of his office, without dictating, or interfering with
the duties of others.
The platform of the Republican County convention, controlled as it
was by the Machine, was abjectly silent upon these issues. This waB not
surprising in view of the fact that a platform that had been adopted by
the previous year's convention, pledgiug Republican candidates to work
for lower salaries, had been shamefully violated after the election.
A'll thlB shows why hundreds of Republican voters of Summit county
are going to support the Democratic county ticket this fall to defeat the
political trust that has taken control of their party's local affairs.
The high-handed practices bfjthe Machine in defeating and humiliat
ing worthy Republicans who would not do the Machine's bidding while in
office; the outrageous opposition to a measure that would have saved the
people of Summit county $30,000 a year in the exorbitant salaries paid their
county officials; the offensive favoritism to the privileged interests that
contribute to the party's campaign fund, combined with the consequent
neglect of the peoples' welfare; the unwarranted interference by county
officials in the affairs of the city; the attempt to fill the public service with
political favorites at excessively high
equally competent and willing to work for reasonable compensation alj
these abuses, of which the Machine has long stood convicted before the
people, can only be condoned by the

thus gradually restoring the values
that have been taken from all forms
of property owned by the people
through thirty years of the Single
Gold Standard. The Republican
party's policy is to make "money
scarce and therefore dear," and all
forms of property cheap. But to
prevent the trusts from being
squeezed by this same system
which takes away the value of the
people's property, the party of Mr.
Hanna favors the trusts by legisla
tion which enables them to arbi
trarily fix their own prices for their
products. Voters may take their
choice between the two systems.

The local Republican campaign is
being conducted after the most ap

of the prosperity that under the po
litical trust system leaks down occa
sionally from the "classes to the

the enormous campaign fund that is
being spent by the Republican

Of the Legislature
Largely Responsible For
Clay Mine Horror.
Rigid Laws Should Have
Providing For the Inspection
of His Verdict
Coroner Leberman holds the state
responsible for the numerous fatal
accidents in clay banks.
He savs that the failure of the
Legislature to enact laws for the in-
spectiou of clay banks similar to
those for coal miners, constitutes
gross neglect on its part.
His verdict in the East Akron clay
bank horror was filed Thursday.
Three employes of the Buckeye
Sewer Pipe company, Daniel Calla
han, John Jaskey and Andy Polasky,
were killed. The transcript of find
ings is as follows:
"I do find that the deceased
(Daniel Callahan) came to his death
by reason of injuries sustained in a
falling clay bank on the premises of
the Buckeye Sewer Pipe Co., on
July 22, 1899. I further find that the
aforesaid clay bank, while being
worked in accordance with the cus
tom prevalent among the owners of
clay banks In this viciuity and per
haps clay banks in general, was in a
highly dangerous condition at the
time of the accident, and was not, in
my estimation, a safe place in which
a miner might work; nor was the
manner of removing the clay of such
a nature as to add the greatest secur
ity to the life and limb of the em
"Furthermore I have been unable
to find any provisions in the laws of
Ohio for the inspection by the State
or District Mine Inspector of clay
banks, such as the one iu which the
unfortunate Callahan and his fellow
workmen met their untimely end
The abssnee of such provisions
(which are so fully and vigorously
enforced in the case of coal mines)
makes It possible for every owner of
a clay bank to mine his clay in such
a manner as to insure him the great
est ease and largest profits in taking
out his clay and places no restriction
on the manner in which the clay
should be removed, so as to best pro
tect the miuers employod.
"Considering the immensity of the
clay industry in this state, the mul
titude of men employed In mining
that mineral, the hazardous nature of
the occupation and the largo number
of lives which have during the past
few years been lost in following it, I
consider it gross neglect upon the
part of our legislative bodies in fail
ing to provide suitable regulations
for the mining of clay in connection
with tho laws governing the conduct
of other mining of a scarcely more

On Building Boom.
Number New Houses In Barberton
Falls Away Below Anticipation.
Barberton is be o Ming considerably
these days in the way of new build
ings, no less than 25 being in course
of construction at present.
This number falls far below that
anticipated last spring, and lias been
caused principally by the great in
crease in the price of building ma
terial. O. C. Barber in speaking with
a reporter for the Demockat several
months ago intimated that Barber
ton's growth would bo so rapid as to
indicate that its size would soon be
equal to that of Akro.i. But it will
bo many years, at the rato of 20 or
30 houses each season until tills is
done. Under tho condition of trusts,
with building material advanced to
an average of 40 per cent., only such
houses as are au absolute necessity
will be erected.
The industries of Barberton are
booming, yet the price of rent for
houses is advanced to an enormous
figure. On Third st. the owner of a
five-room house asked a prospective
renter $30 a month. Not desiring to
build, under prebent conditions nor
pay the rent asked, many new-comers
move to Akron and rent houses,
and go back and forward on the street
cars, saving considerable, even after
the price of car fare is deducted.
