Assault on L.K.Stone.
Was Knocked Down and
Two Unknown Men the
Object of Their .Attack Is a
They Did Not Take Any Money or
At 11 o'closk Tuesday night, Louis
K. Stone, of the In Greenwood
Bros.' store, and -who resides at 110
Park Plaek, departed from the Elks'
olub rooms for his home.
Passing along Ash st., when in
front of the Enterprise Manufactur
ing company's plant, he was ap
proaohed by two well-dressed young
men, whom Mr. Stone alleges as
saulted him. Suffering from the ef
fects of his injuries be is in bed to
day. IMrs. Stone told a reporter for the
Demociiat the following story of the
"My husband returned home at 3
o'clock Wednesday morning, cov
ered with blood and scarcely able to
walk. He sank down on a sofa and
became unconscious. Reviving
later, he told me that two young
men had approached him, one of
them struck him on the head, pre
sumably with a sharp internment.
He was then knocked down on the
pavement. They kicked him in the
face and side1: and about the hips,
finally rolling him into the ditch,
" Air. Stone lay there for almos't three
hours. "When he recovered suffi
ciently to start home, ho was still so
dazed that he could not And his
house for some time, during which
he wandered about on the street."
The assaulted man was placed in
bed, and a physician called. The
cut on his head is an inch long and
quite deep, the bruises are very pain
ful, yet Mr. Stone's condition is
much easier today, and his friends
hope for his speedy recovery.
A most peculiar feature of the as
sault is that it is not clear for what
purpose it was committed. The vic
tim of the brutal assault had with
him considerable money, a fine gold
watch and chain, diamond rin g and
other valuables. These the assail
ants did not touch.
Chief Harrison visited Mr. Stone
"Wednesday morning for the purpose
of obtaining evidence with which to
form a clue toward ascertaining the
guilty parties. As yet no evidence
" of an incriminating nature has been
found. Mr. Stone was held up at the
same place about four months ago,

Written by Corporal Gayer
Dated Nine Days Before His Death
at Manila Was Improved.
Relatives of the late Corporal
Henry Gayer have rcelved a letter
from their son, written nine days be
fore his death. ,
It was dictated to a nurse of the
Second Reserve hospital corps.
Corporal Gayer was in the hospital
at Malate at the time. The letter is
dated September 25. He had been at
that time in the hospital since Aug
ust 5. He said that he was feeling
much bettor. He was propped up In
"Bea7overlooklng Manilla bay. He
says much in praise of the hospital
and the treatment he received. He
wanted his relatives to tell "the
boys" that he bad not forgotten them
and that he would write as soon as
possible. The nurse adds a line say
ing that Corporal Gayer was much
improved and that he had just fin
ished a hearty meal. Corporal
Gayer's parents still refuse to believe
that their son is dead. They are hop
ing against hope that there Is a mis
take somewhere and that he Is still
Must Make Way For a
Ex-Marshal Mason Lost His Employ
' ment How It Happened.
Postmaster Ebright assured Ex
Marshal Wm. Mason several weeks
ago that if he would resign his em
ployment as watchman at the "Wer
ner works he could get the position
of janitor at the Akron post office
building. This position has been put
under civil service regulations and
applicants were required to take an
examination. After "holding the
place for several weeks, Mr. Mason
took the examination, along with
other candidates and passed.
Ex-Mayor E. R. Harper thought it
a good time to even up with Mr.
Mason because the latter had op
posed him for re-election as Mayor,
so he used his influence with Col.
Dick to prevent Mr. Mason's ap
pointment as janitor. The place
went to Enoch T. .Tones, of Doyles
town, who, several years ago was a
member of the Akron Street depart
ment and a valuable member of
Judge Anderson's political machine.
Ex-Marshal Mason is an old sol
dier, and his comrades are indignant
at the treatment he has receive!,
especially as there is a law which
provides that in all matters of ap
pointment to public office, old sol
diers, if within the eligible list, shall
be given the preference."
Mr. Mason was within the eligible
list. Several of tho applicants for
the examination had a higher per
centage of eligibility than Mr. Jones
who received the appointment. "
It is to the credit of Postmaster
Ebright that he did all in his power
to bring about tho appointment of
Mr. Mason, but as against tho com
bined influence of ex-Mayor Harper
and the local Republican Machine,
which wanted Jones, Postmaster
Ebright's wishes amounted to nothing.

The Machine Politicians Have Every
thing Planned About Right.
The Democrat has autheutic in
formation that the local Republican
Machine has already parcelled out
Summit county's officers for several
years in advance of nomination.
Mr. H. M. Hagelbarger, who re
cently resigned as Court Steno
grapher, is to succeed Prosecuting At
torney "Wanamaker. Clint "W. Kline,
the pioneer of "Sure Thing Candi
dates" in Summit county, is to suc
ceed Auditor Sisler; A. J. Rowley is
to have the nomination for Probate
Judge; and unless ex-County Treas
urer Miles succeeds in getting some
soft berth from the National Ad
ministration, he is to have the
nomination for County Clerk If he
wants it. Mr. J. A. "Wilson, of the
Fifth ward, is to have the appoint
ment to succeed Commissioner Mc
Milieu next spring.
Just paste this in your scrap-book
and as tlme'goes by see if the Dem
ocrat hasn't prophesied right. It
all depends upon how long Summit
county's Republican? permit their
party's affairs to be dominated by
the .Office Holding Tniht which is
