of which tho Republicans would

As to tho platform adopted, wo shall

Of Average Yioltl This Summer-
Corn Prospects Better.
Columbus, O., July 0.-(Spl.) -The
wheal harvest Is on with a prospect of
only LT per cent of an average product,
n still further decline of 1 per cent
as compared with the prospect Indi
cated Juno 1. Wheat prospect has
shown a steady decline from the ap
pearance of tho plant of which will
undoubtedly bo tho lowest product
since 18110.' Tho crop Is bud over tho.
entire Stale, ranging from total failure
to ahove fill per cent lu hut four un
important wheat counties. The great
proporl leu of the crop Is below lifi per
cent; twenty-four counties incraglng
below J5 per cent. A great many
Melds will simply bo cut for feed or
pasture. A vast amount of wheat was
plowed up and put to other crops, prin
cipally corn and oats. Of the :i,KtO,S.M
acres estimated to have been sown last
fall, l,f..'(,no. acres Is the amount es
timated to have been plowed up this
spring, leaving hut 1,077,;ifil acres for
the harvest, and much of this not
worth tho cutting. It can very read
ily be seen that tho Ohio wheat crop
for IPOO Is a great failure compared
with the average product and with tho
possibilities of the State hi wheat pro
ductlou. A'i cannot now anticipate a
crop of morn than 1,000,000 bushels.
Tho slgiilllcauco of this Is strikingly
apparent when wo consider that Ohio
has produced nhovo 50,000,000 bush
els. Ill USDS nud 1800 Ohio had a large
corn area, hut tho area of the present
jour will exceed either of those years.
The present corn urea Is estimated at
.'l.O.'il.TiW acres, an Increase over last
year of ltfi,U7U acres, and being about
the largest area lu tho history of the
Minle. Tint ciop shows a very fair
condition of growth throughout tho
Htalo aiid present prospects aro prom
ising. Recent raliiti havo aided lu ad
vancing tho corn growth and It went ti
er communis continue lavoratiio nio
corn crop of 11)00 will he among tho
largest lu total product as well as lu
total area, The only complaint at
present Is on iicount of tho cut worm
and whllo grub, which aro reported to
ho working lu tho corn, the out limited
dantago for each being about IS per
cent, which damage rapid growth may
There Is a fair average area of po.
taloes, a slight Increase over last year's
area, but weather conditions have not
been altogether favniablo to a success
fill growth. The Condition, howover,
Is 1KI per cent of a fair average, which
Is moro promising than tho very short
crops that have been produced the past
IMoiitfhl sownoly affected timothy
and as a coiisciiuenee the crop of hay
Is light. '
Pastures suffered ory materially
from drought, during most of tho
spring, but recent rains havo some,
what lovlved them.

Hdltor Dally Democrat: ""'
Will jou kindly allow mo spaco In
your paper to make a few corrections
relative to Impressions conveyed by
Mr. Paul and a fow other members
of the City Council, In remarks niado
at last Monday oienlng's Council meet
ing, where they made such serious ob
Jeetlous to my going out to Summit
lake park Inst Sunday, with a squad
of 10 olllcers to prohibit an advertised
Sunday game of base ball?
They said that in so doing I had va
cated 10 police beats. Now this goes
to show how little they know, as
Couucllmen, about the nil's Irs of tho
city of Akioii, as there aro only 11
police beats lu this city, all told. And,
again, nine of tho nineteen olllcers
were not on regular duty, and had
volunteered their services on that
day. These, men wero on tho night
trick and not under obligations to work
that day and, consequently, thnl part
of this so-called "religious net," us
.Mr. Paul terms It, did not cost this
oily one cent, and certainly ought to
be ory satisfactory to this great re
former In the next place, does It
not look a little suspicious and qucrV
that all these kicks and objections to
my atteinptlng to euforce tio Sunday
laws should all como from members
of Iho Council that belong to tho miuto
political party, and neaily everybody
knows .Mr. I'uil's politics. 1 will leave,
tho pnbllc to Judge.
I also ask the question, were not
these 10 officers and myself still doing
police duly within tho limits of the
city of Akron on last Sunday, and If
so, what to all this kick about? And
again, If this matter of giving tho
iicwlytiitinoxcd territory, and, especial
ly, tho parks and pleasure resorts, at
Summit lake and other places, proper
Sunday polleu protection sijiacks too
much' of religion for tho Council to
tackle, as Mr. Paul thinks, then why
not let II alone? What Is the necessity
of calling It up lu Council, by members
themselves, and then refuse to tako
a stand, or go on recoid, one way or
I have the greatest respect for Mr.
Paul and have no personal feelings
ngalust hliu, but wo differ on the Sun
day question, and, such bolng the
case, I claim I lmvo the right of public
expression, Just as ho has. Therefore,
la It not amusing that Mr. Paul dis
likes things that smack of religion
and at tho same time puts himself up
as tin; champion of a Sunday base
ball team that he says Is composed al
moot entirely of church members?
1 alho ask Mr. Paul whether he or any
oilier member of the City Council
wants me to come out and say where
and for wlmt purpose ?S0 of the .flOS
on the special pay roll was used?
No, of course, they don't. It would
be damaging to ho best Interests of
the city of Akron, and every iiowhi
paper reporter In this city knows It
nud has been Instructed to that effect.
And jet It Is nuido to appear by mem
bers of Council that tint City Comtuls
sloiiers and tho Chief of Police wero
to btanio for all this, when such Is not
the case; but Is a matter of serious
circumstance which I -would not pub
lish, oven lu self-defenho.
Now, lu conclusion, I havo only this
to say: I think It Is about tlmo that
these political club that huo been
hanging over the beads oi tno pmico
department for years should bo drop
ned. and tho olllcers allowed to do
their sworn duties lu enforcing tho
laws nud ordinances of this city.
With icfeieueo to my liiend, Mr.
Paul. I have Ibis to say: If he would
devote oiily a part of thu llmu that h
occupies lu preparing abusvo speeches
about the City Commissioners to Couu
ellnunlo duties proper hu would make
ono of the bcM. Cuiiuclluiou this city
ever had, and U would not lmvo been
neccbbiiry for mo to publish this urtl
cle. Lul the nubile be tho Judge.
