Board Bill Left Behind Will be
A score or more of Akrou people
would give a good deal to know the
whereabouts of John Gable.
He is a painter by trade and has
resided in this city for several years.
Gable boarded on Wheeler st., and
was considered perfectly straight.
One week ago today he failed to re
tnrn to his boarding place. This did
not occasion much concern at that
time. But a week has passed and
nothing has been heard from him.
Many people are much alarmed,
not that they fear for Gable's per
sonal welfare. He will not suffer
from the pangs of hunger or the cold
of winter. Far from it, for ho has
his pockets well lined with the
where-wlth-all with which to pur
chase all the comforts of life. This
was gained in various ways. Some
of it came from acquaintances, but
the larger portion of it was donated
by the Akron Turners.
Gable was an active member of
this society. Ho contributed largely
of time to id in the work of the or
ganization. On various occasions he
had charge of the lunch and refresh
ment counter. Last Sunday when
be left Turner's hail he had iu his
possession $70 belonging to the soci
ety and he still has it, for not one
cent of the amount was turned over
to the treasurer or any of the other
officers. One thing that Gable for
got to take with him was a $60 board
bill. This was left behind, as a re
minder of his having once lived in
this city. Numerous friends have a
vivid recollection of having loaned
him various sums of money,- some
small, others large. An effort has
been made to get some trace of Gable
but so far all clews have proved

day afternoon at the home of bis
daughter, Mrs, Frank Wecht, 810
He was 71 years of age, Sunday be
ing bin birthday. He was born Oct.
28, 1828. His death was due to or
ganic heart trouble, from which he
has been a great sufferer fof the past
For weeks MrBuehl had been un
able to recline in his bed. Because
of his afflction it was impossible for
him to rest in a recliuingposition. The
greater part of the time he sat on the
edge of the bed, resting his head on
a table placed in front of him. His
death had been expected for a month
past. It was only a question of how
long his strength would last.
Mr. Buehl had resided inAkron for
six years, coming here from Wayne
county, where he was a farmer. He
was a respected citizen and a true
Christian. For several years his
brother, Rev. P. J. Buhl, was pastor
of the German Lutheran church,

Factory Wiii be Built
Provided a Sufficient Acreage Is As
sured Employment For Many.
Articles of incorporation have been
prepared for the Akron Canning
Company. The men interested are
largely local men.
.This company will build a plant in
Akron provided the company can se
cure an acreage that will warrant It.
Much depends on the farmers them
One of the in tares ted parties said
"One of ,tlie greatest 'difficulties
so often met in this Jkind of industry
is that of securing enough acreage.
It now remains with the farmer
whether or not the contemplated
factor will be built iu Akron. Its
company is about ready with their
contract, and as soon as five hundred
acres are secured the factory will be
built. Without this amount it would
not be a paying investment."'
"It will, of course, have to be taken
into consideration that a factory of
this kind means au expenditure of a
large sum of money, and our con
tract must be with responsible peo
ple." "With proper cultivation, sweet
corn will be much more profitable
than wheat; in a favorable season,
good tillable lands yield from $25 to
$35 per acre. Points where canning
factories are running have been of
great advantage to the-farmers.
"We are satisfied that after one
year's experience we cannot take
care of the contracts that will be of
fered us. Tomatoes ana other vege
tables will also be canned.
"This factory will furnish employ
ment to about 200 people during the
canning season. The superintend
ent will be a practical man who has
for the past several years had charge
of a large eastern factory with great

Tor many months the officers of
this trust have been somewhat dis
turbed by reports of the formation of
rival corporations. To counteract
this, the directors decided to stifle
competition. The following story
is from the Is. York correspondent
of the Chicago Inter-Ocean. It

turer, with offices at No. 40 Hudson

the large wholesale grocery firm of
Van GlahnBro?., in Brooklyn, which
"With regret we must inform you
that the Diamond Match company
has informed us that if any matches
but its own were handled by us it
would cut us off on its goods. You
can readily see that in view of the
position in which we are placed It
will be impossible to do any business i
with you at present. Therefore your
order for E.T. Brady, No. 491 Hill
street, Brooklyri.has not been filled."
Mr Thuner left jor Detroit yester
day, and his son, who was in charge
of the store, said he had instructions
not to discuss the subject of the let
ter. The letter has been neatly
framed by Mr. Thuner, and hangs in
a conspicuous place in his private
Mr. Claggett, manager of the Dia
mond Match company, said:
"I think it probable that such a
letter as the one referred to was sent
by us to Von Glahn Bros. We do
business through agencies, and we
exact of our agents that they shall
not handle the goods of other manu

Guesses On. Election
Furnished by Mr. Hanna's
From Summit County.
Secretary Young Thinks It's a
' Ghost Story.
As the Republican Committee Did Not
Give It Out.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer pro
ceeded to carry Ohio for Judge Nash
this morning declaring that he will
have about 25,000 plurality over Hon.
John R. McLean.
The P. D.'s estimate is based upon
computations returned from all the
counties. Its estimate of Summit
county, for instance, is as follows:
Conservative politicians of both
parties, who have made a careful
canvass of the situation in Summit
county within the past few days esti
mate that Judge Nash will have a
plurality over Mr. McLean of in the
neighborhood of 1,200 votes. The to
tal vote last year for secretary of
state was 13,879. It is exppoted to
reach 15,000 this year. Kinney had
a plurality last year of 1,454 over
If the estimate in all the counties
upon which the Plain Dealer's cal
culations are based is as "conserva
tive" as that of Summit county,
Judge Nash will be the worst de
feated Republican candidate who
has ever run for Governor of Ohio.
No Repnblican who knows anything
about the Summit county situation
pretends that Judge Nash will carry
the county by 1,200. Chairman Stu
art and Secretary Kenfleld of the
Republican Executive committee
say they "have never made any esti
mate of the Republican vote in Sum
mit county, uor has such a thing
ever suggested itself to them. We
have nothing whatever to base an
If the officers of the Republicans
Executive Committee are not iu a
position to make a conservative esti
mate, who is.
When Secretary E. M. Young, of
the Democratic Executive Commit
tee, was asked for au opinion this
morning, he said:
"I have read the Plain Dealer's
estimate. It is absurd to claim that
Judge Nash will carry Summit
county by 1,200 plurality something
not even Maj. McKinley nor Gov.
Bushnell could do. I havo no hesi
tancy about saying that Mr. Mc
Lean will carry the county by more
than 200. Mayor Jones will have
about 2,000 votes in the county. Who
are the, "conservative politicians of
both parties" whom the Plain Dealer
has seen for its information? It
must have been Dobson who seems
to be both Democrat and Republi
can as occasion demands, for all tho
Plain Dealer ghost stories are manu
factured in the Dobson office. If the
Plain Dealer's guesses from other
counties are as wild as that from
Summit county Judge Nash will be
defeated by 50,000 plurality,

A Cincinnati Correspon
Hanna's Friends Badly Frightened
About Jones Vote.
Mr. Orrville H. Stewart, represent
ing the Cincinnati Post, has been in
Akron tor the last few days collecting
information with reference to the
evil operation of trusts.
Mr. Stewart says that he .has al
ready visited twenty of the promi
nent industrial cities of Ohio and
finds that in all but one of them fac
tories have been closed as a result of
being purchased by trust. He says
that in the places visited mom than
17,000 men have been thrown .ut of
work by the, trusts, not including the
traveling salesmen and membeis of
office forces employed by the com
panies absorbed by trusts. He says
that he has made a similar tour of
Indiana and finds even a greater
proportion of men thrown out of
Mr. Stewart found the conditions
prevailing ; at Akron better than
those in many other Ohio cities by
reason of the fact that Akron's in
dustries are more diversified than
those of other cities. He said that

visited, which had only ono large
factory, a. great many, workingraen

by the closing down of the factory.
He said that in his investigations at
Akron he found ten companies rep
resented in trusts, bnt that aside
from the employes ot the Akrou Salt
company and one of the Rubbrr
companies, Akron workiugmen havo
not been materially affected by the
operation of the trusts.
He found that the Akron lion
company had been forced out of
business chiefly because tho trust
that controlled the supply of -pig
iron had so raised prices upon the
independent manufacturers that the
finished product could be purchased
from the Steel Trust at as low a
price as the Akrou lion Co. could
buy raw material.
"Everywhere I go," said Mr. Stew
art, "I find the people complaining
about thb high prices that are charg
ed by the trusts. Everything the
people buy a.t the stores is being
raised in price and there it no telling
when the upward limit will be
reached. The farmeis especially are
discontented owing to the low prices
received by them tor their products
and the high prices they have to pay
for what they buy, and unless I am
greatly mistaken the trusts, are going
to have very reactionary effect upon
the Republican ticket at the Novem
ber election. Hotel men are com
plaining about the falling off of their
custom on account of hundreds of
traveling men being thrown out of
The local Republican campaign
committee is making the bluff that a
majority of the votes which Mayor
Jones will tally in this campaign are
coming from the Democrats. They
overlook the fact that the Democratic
platform -comes so near to what
Mayor Jones advocates that thero is
no real incentive to Democrats to
bolt their ticket. It Col. Dick were
satisfied that Mr. Jones would get
more Democratic than Republican
votes he would not be writing hys

Jones to retire from the race, and
trying to combatrhis arguments. In
