Prof. Seese Very Wisely
Seese Will Support McElroy
Invited to Get
Representative Charles F. Seese,
of Summit county, reached tho city
to-day and nt once took a stand on
the clerkship in opposition to what
was expected, when it is considered
that be comes from the home county
of General Dick, nays the Columbus
Dispatch. Mr. Seese declared his
preference for McElroy and was giv
ing that gentleman open support in
tho hotel lobbies. "Thore is consid
erable talk about an administration
slato," said Mr. Seese, "but I do not
bolleve one has been made. At least
I know nothing of any such arrange
ment, and it seems to me that I
would havo some information en
this subject if such a move was con
templated. Without regard to what
others may do, I shall support Mr.
McElroy for clerk of tho houso."
Notwithstanding the position of
Mr. Seese, It is evident today that
some of the gentlemen who are well
known as managers for tho controll
lng powers of tho party, are out in
tho open for Griffith, thus confirming
the rumor that the latter gentleman
is tbo choice of the Administration

not advocate the Introduction of
such a measure in the next legisla

til the union acquired greater
strength. In this connection Mr,
Klapetzky said the International

For the Decrease In
The annual meeting of the congre
gation of the First Congrogatlonnl
church was to have been hold Thurs
day evening, but owing to small at
tendance, It was postponed to Thurs
day evening, Jan.-4.
Dr. T. E. Monroe, the pastor, mado
a few remarks deploring the falling
off in attendance nt regular and mid
week sorvices. "Never In the his
tory of this church has its regular at
tendant boon so small as it has been
during thepast year," he said. "True,
many of ourmombcrs dq not live
near tho church, and tho distance of
the journey may make a difference.
But I hear similar reports from other
Akron churches, nnd from othor
cities, too. Perhaps conditions havo
had something to do with this state
of affairs: First came the war with
Spain. Many of our boys are thero.
Then last summer, there was tho
Elks' fair, nnd in the fall tho Street
nnd County fairs.
"However, the social clubs of Ak
ron are largely responsible for this
decrease in cburoh attendance.
There nro upwards of 100 olubs in
this city and their doors are onen on
Sunday. I havo hopes, though, that
better times are in store for the
churches, and that this difficulty
may be overcome."
