THE PROXY SYSTEM MUST GO.
Ex-City Commissioner Joseph
Hugill, a respected citizen and
business man of Akron, who has
grown gray in the service of the
Republican party, tells some start
ling truths in another column of the
Democbat today. He shows why
it is that Akron is face to face with
a tax orisis as a result of the man
agement of the city's financial affairs
by the Board of City Commission
ers. Mr. Hugill charges that the turn
ing of the Board of City Commis
sioners into a political machine by
Probate Judge Anderson at the ex
pense and to the neglect of the city's
interests is alone responsible-for the
present deplorable condition of
Akron's finances.
No man in Akron is better quali
fied than Mr. Hugill to tell the
citizens of Akron the truth about
the Board of City Commissioners,
for we have Mr. Hugill's own testi
mony for it that he was deposed
from the Board because he would not
be dictated to by Judge Anderson.
Cumbersome and expensive as the
City Commissioner tystein is to the
oitizens of Akron even when men of
ability and good business judgment
are In charge, it becomes more then
doubly so when the Board is turned
into a political machine to promote
the interests of a self-seoking county
official.
Mr. Hugill is supported by hun
dreds of Akron's Republican citizens
In protesting against this selfish
interference by Judge Anderson in
the affairs of the Board of City Com
missioners. No ordinary grievance would
cause these men to forget their party
ties and work and vote agaiiiBt a
member of their own party.
When such prominent Republicans
as Mr. Hugill and his friends urge
Akron people to vote against Judge
Anderson because he has set himself
up as dictator of Akron, abusing the
power that comes to him as one of
the officials charged with appointing
City Commissioners, it is high time
that Akron's citizens also sink their
partisan differences and vote to put
an end to the proxy system.
In no other way can the citizens
obtain a rightful voice in the control
of their city's affairs.
"FOR POLITICAL EFFECT."
The discussion concerning the
financial affairs of the city was
started in Council last night by
Councilman Homan, the Republican
member from the Third ward. He
wanted to know how much the auto
mobile patrol wagon was going to
cost.
During the discussion it was shown
that the deficit for the city's current
running expenses will amount to
$70,000 by the first of January; and
that according to Treasurer Berger's
statement the deficit already exceeds
f 61, 000.
In the heat of the discussion, City
Commissioner McMillen boldly ac
cused Council of introducing the
subject of finances "for political ef
fect." When it is considered that it was
the Republican Councilman from the
Third ward who opened under the
subject of finances, Mr. McMillen's
defense falls rather flat.
In this Issue of the Democrat ex
City Commissioner Hugill gives Ak
ron's taxpayers some interesting in
formation concerning their city's
flnances,and doubtless Mr. McMillen
will accuse him also of calling atten
tion to the $61,000 deficit for political
effect.
The trouble is that for the last
three years the whole Board of City
Commissioners has been adminis
tered for political effect and the
lTR6ETfr4cOUNCJj
effect has been intended to benefit
Judge Anderson by helping him to
build up a Machine that would
make his re-election certain.
If it has come to such a pass that
Akron people cannot discuss their
city's financial affairs without beiug
accused by Judge Anderson's proxy
of doing so for political effect, our
citizens owe an apology to Mr. Mc
Millen. Judge Anderson's proxies should
abandon their parrot-like cry, when
ever they are made the subject of
honest criticism, that it is done
"for political effect."
If throughout their entire admin
istration as public officials they had
not been the beneficiaries and the
servants of a political machine, sub
ordinating the interests of the city to
the interest of the Machine, their
complaint that they are now
being criticised "for political effect"
might have some weight with intel
ligent citizens.
But as it is, the citizens have
decreed that the proxy system must
go and the proxies must go with it.
FACTS FOR VOTERS. .
- Two thousand business men and
tax payers of Summit county peti
tioned Senator Alexander to get a
bill through the legislature reducing
the exorbitant salaries of Summit
county's officials. Senator Alexander,
in conjunction witli Representative
Russell and Kempel, worked hard
for the passage of of a bill that would
have saved the people of Summit
county $30,000 a year. This bill was
defeated a few hours before the leg
islature adjourned by the combined
efforts of Summit county's Republi
can office holders. Senator Alex
ander told the Summit county offic
ials who were at Columbus lobbying
against the bill that they would re
gret their selfish opposition to what
the people demanded, Every one of
the two thousand men who petitioned
Senator Alexander to reduce exorbi
tant salaries is under obligation to
vote against Clerk Hershey and the
Republican machine which defeated
the salary bill.
Just before the Russell Salary bill
was defeated, through the efforts of
the local Republidan Machine, the
following conversation took place on
the floor of the Senate Chamber at
Columbus:
Senator Alexander: "Mr. Her
shey, are youhere to defeat the Rus
sel Salary Bill?"
Clerk Hershey: "That's what
I'm here for."
Senator Alexander: "You'll re
gret it."
The Russell Salary Bill would
have reduced the salaries of Summit
county's office-holders $30,000 and
still lmve left them a very liberal
compensation-
Every member of the Summit
County Farmers' Institute and each
of the 2,000 business men and tax
payers who petitioned Senator
Alexander for a salary reduction bill
should vote against the Republican
Machine which defeated Senator
Alexander's efforts.
After Senator Alexander, in con
junction with Representatives Rus
sell and Kempel, had worked to get
a salary reduction bill through the
Legislature, the political Machine
which controls the high salaried
offices at the Court House defeated
Senator Alexander for a second term
in the Legislature. Senator Alex
ander was right when he tried to
have the exorbitant salaries reduced,
and he had the people with him.
And at the polls next Tuesday they
are going to show that he was right
by defeating the Machine which
killed the Salary bill.
How long would the people of
Summit county be compelled to pay
their public officials exorditant sal
aries if the people had a direct voice
in the affairs of the Legislature?
The local Republican Office-Holders'
Trust would not have been able to
have killed off the Russell Salary
bill were the Initiative and Referen
dum, which the Democratic party
now advocates, in ellect.

Testifies to the Good Qualities of Chamber-

On the 10th of December, 1897,
Rev. S. A. Donahoe, pastor M. E.
Church, South, Pt. Pleasant, W. Va.,
contracted a severe cold which was
attended from the beginning by
violent coughing. He says: "After
resorting to a number of so-called
'specifics,' usually kept in tho house,
to no purpose, I purchased a bottle
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
which acted like a charm. I most
cheerfully recommend it to the
public." For sale by all druggists,

A Letter to an Akron Firm That Shows
How the People Must Pay Tribute
to Industrial Robbers.
The extravagant increase of the prioes of articles
manufactured by the Trusts is beginning to affect the
workingmen of Akron in a very oppressive way. Coal,
furniture, hardware and every article of food which they
use upon their tables areincreasing in price. The use of
beef, owing to the large advance made by the Beef trust,
Is almost prohibitive to workingmen of average wages.
Akron's merchants in all lines of trade are receiving
letters every day or so notifying them of the advances
made upon articles manufactured by the trusts.
One of Akron's prominent hardware firms kindly
furnishes the Democrat the following letter, which is a
fair sample of how the people are notified of the advanced
prices which they have to pay the trusts:
Detroit, Oct. 10, 1899.
Since the last advance in prices on stoves
there has been a continual increase in cost of all
materials, including about five dollars per ton on
pig iron, and corresponding advances on other raw
materials; also, shortening of time on most of the
staples to thirty days, with either one per cent, or
no discount for cash.
Materials we use largely have advanced since
laEt summer as follows :
. Pig Iron. 125.
Steel 100
Copper. . . 81
Tin Plate f6
Wire 132
NaUs iro
Lumber - 8r
Bolts 111
Asbestos 31
Pipe 184
Pipe Fittings 111
Sivets 110
OUs 100
These advances in stove materials average over
100 per cent. There seems to be no possibility of
reductions for some time to come ; therefore, an
other advance of 5 per cent, is necessary on stoves
at this time, and the changing of terms to those
usual in other lines of trade, viz. : 60 days; 2 per
cent, discount, for cash 10 days, these changes
taking effect immediately.
Yours very respectfully.
DETKOIT STOVE WORKS.
This letter Bhows an average advance of 109 percent,
in the prices of thirteen articles whose supply is con
trolled by trusts. Another letter, to the same Akron
firm, written by F. and L. Kahn & Bros., of Hamilton,
shows that the average advance of wages has been only
12& percent.
It will be noticed that the letter from the Detroit
Stove Works says : "There seems to be no possibility of
reductions of prices for some time to come."
If the workingmen of Akron vote to sustain the
party, which, in its nearly four years of power, has di
rected its whole efforts to encouraging the organization
of trusts, they must expact yet higher advances in
the prices of everything they eat, drink and wear, or use
in their homes.
Register your opposition to the trusts and the Ad
ministration which favors them by voting the Democratic
ticket one week hence. v

CAPl IaLIST.S WORK OX TH E SC1IEME
Said to Desire to Make Cleveland Pivo
tal I'oint or Greatest Miborbau Electric
System la World To Inspect Avail
able Lines.
Cleveland, Oct. 31. Certain eastern
and Ohio capitalists are said to bo desir
ous of making Cleveland the pivotal
point of the greatest suburban electric
railway system in tue world. About 25
Philadelphia and other capitalistsare ex
pected iu Cleveland today to interview
representatives of street lailway com
panies and members of the chamber of
commerce. The visitors will probably
remain in the city for a few days, and
will make tours of inspection-over the
various suburban hues.
In a few weeks they have visited
Niks, Youngstowu, Warren and other
places in the northeastern section of the
fctate, inspecting various suburban hues.
Steps have already been taken toward
the establishment of the new system,
about 230 miles of right of way having
been secured in the northeastern section
of the state. Franchises have already
been secured for the new road at Bur
ton, Jefferson and Audover. In order
to facilitate the work a corporation,
known as the Barton, Jefferson and
Andover Electric Railway company,
has been formed.
Tho officers are: Eugene Rawdon,
president; W. H. Dodge, vice president;
A. H. Lindfcley, treasurer, and E. H.
Green, secretary. Negotiations are in
progress for the purchase of the sub
urban line between Warren and Youngs
town. Representatives of the eastern in
vestors are at work between Youngs
town and Pittsburg and within a few
years Cleveland and Pittsburg will bo
the terminals of the largest electric rail
way system in the country. At present,
however, it is proposed to start with
Cleveland as the basic point, and build
out in an easterly and southeasterly di
rection. PENNSY MAY GET CONTROL.

New Yokk, Oct. 31. Prof. Arthur O.

ministry. At the final meeting of the
committee of the New York presbytery
it was decided so to report to the pres
bytery at its next meeting. Nov. 13.
The committee will report to tho
presbytery that Prof. McGiffert's views
are not in accord with the cardinal doc
trines of the church and will recom
mend that the presbytery refer the case
to the general assembly of next May
for more definite instructions. It is not
certain that tho presbytery will accept
the recommendations of its committee
to refer the case back to the general as
sembly as it is quite within its power
to order a trial of Prof. McGiffert on
its own responsibility. Prof. McGif

Manila, Oct. 31. Three companies
of "Colonel Bell's regiment had two en

gents left four officers and eight men
dead ou the field ana the Americans
captured three prisoners and several
guns. On tho American side, one man
was killed aad two officers and sis men

The Spanish commission, which en
tered the ui?urgeut lines a month ago
with money to relieve the wants of sev
eral thousand military and civil Span
ish prisoners, returned to Manila. The
commissioners reported that they spent
moat of the time in Tarlac and vicinity,
where there were some 200 sick Span
iards in the hospital. The Filipinos ill
treated aud"illted them, refusing to sur
render them, as well as the other Span
ish prisoners, in the hope of compelling
Spain to recognize the independence of
the islands.
There were 14 American prisoners,
they said, at Tarlac, all of whom were
well treated. Lieutenant S. C. Gil

The commissioners brought a letter
to General Oris from a relative of the
murdered Filipino General Luna, who
wished to avenge the assassination by
Aguinaldo's officers, and who asked a ',
personal interview with the military
governor. .
According to the commissioners' state- '
ment. Amunaldo. who was at Tarlac
with about 3,000 troops, wished to con
tinue the war, although ho had a high
opinion of the American officers and
soldiers. General Lawton he called
"El General de La Noche" (the night
general), because that commander has
attacked him so often in the darkness
that he never knew when to look for
him.
Agninaldo was said to be well sup
plied with arms and ammunition and
he was able to get plenty of rice from
tho northern provinces.
With the Spanish commissioners
came a large number of women, the
families of eight prominent officers of
the Filipino army, who recently applied
to General Otis for permission to send
then: families to Manila. Upon the re
ceipt of the military governor's reply,
the nature of whish had not been dis
closed, tho women and children started
under escort from Tarlac for the Ameri

MacArthur compelled them to halt
about a mile beyond our outposts,
where they were to remain while their
