the Factions and llrtng the Party
Into Cloier Unity-Some Ex-
preislone lly Canton
Canton Democrats are well pleased
with the ticket nominated at Kansas
City and with the platform. Not a
Democrat In Canton has been heard to
offer a word against either ticket or
platform. News-Democrat reporters
Interviewed a few of the Democrats In
various walks of life with a view of
setting the general sentiment. Not one
was met who was not enthusiastic and
ready to vote a straight ticket. Ap
pended are some of the Interviews:
President Otto Eckhardt, of the cjty
council: "The ticket was the strong
est that could have been selected. Ste
venson Is the right man for vice presi
dent, and our ticket will be elected with
out a doubt. The platform could not
have been more Judiciously framed."
Councilman Keller Huff: "We could
not have selected a better ticket In the
United States. Stevenson Is a very able
man for second place, as he has proven
by previous official duties. The plat
form is an excellent one."
City Clerk Ley: "The ticket Is the
best which could have been selected.
Every Inch of Stevenson Is a Democrat
and the ticket will be elected. The plat
form could not have been Improved
Dr. S. A. Conklln: "The ticket Is as
good a one as could have been selected.
Stevenson Is the best man for second
place that could have been secured, ir
respective of any other man, Towne not
excepted. The platform Is next to the
Declaration of Independence; the con
stitution first, then the Declaration of
Independence, and next comes the Dem
Joseph Munter: "The Kansas City
ticket will be a wlnper. Stevenson is a
good man for second place. I believe
Imperialism will be the issue this year;
and under the present circumstances
the ticket as well as platform are as
well Selected and framed as could have
cratlo party; strengthen It because It
serves to modify the silver clause, and
strengthen the party. Couldn't be bet
ter. If we are successful In electing
our standard bearer, we admit that
there Is much to do. The present ad
ministration has claimed to be the In
stigator of the proseprity which we
have enjoyed during the past few years.
I am not ready to concede that they are
entitled to all the credit. The prosperity
naturally comes from supply and de
mand, which no administration can
claim to control. We realize that if
Bryan is elected we shall have much
to do. The present condition of our
times and treasury has depleted our
finances to such an extent, that If our
candidates are elected the country may
expect too much. The declaration of
Bryan in his notable speech at Chicago
In 1896, "You shall not place upon the
brow of labor the crown of thorns, you
shall not crucify mankind upon a cross
of gold," will be verified If he Is elected."
John S. Melcholr of No. 107 Wade
street, said: "For forty years I have
stood by my party. I voted for Bryan
In 189C. I endorse the candidates. If
we could elect them we would save the
country. As It now Is the country la
going to h 1 at the rate of one million
dollars per day. The platform Is all
right. The Republican partly cannot
retrelve Its Indebtedness unless labor
works for 50 cents per day, and glad to
work at that. The Republicans are In
a box and they would be glad to put tho
Indebtedness on Bryan. We Willi elect
him, however, and stand by him.
John Barry, No. 822 South Market
street: "It Is a good ticked and meets
with my approbation. Stevenson Js a
good and tried man, and I think will
strengthen the ticket. The platform
Is a marvel in construction, and should
win. If the ticket Is elected we will
have our hands full on account of the
Indebtedness and condition existing In
Henry Bobsean, 22G East Eighth
street: "The ticket will be hard to
beat. Stevenson will give It a caste as
well as financial strength. The plat
form Is a good one and I am satisfied.
E. W. Haymaker: "The ticket on the
whole Is all right. I would have prefer
red Hill as vice president, but am sat
isfied as It is. The platform covers
everything as completely as It ls pos
sible to do. They will be off soon, and
I can but quote the language of D. B.
Hill, 'When they are oft I can better
Judge as to the finish.' "
Several prominent railroad men were
Interviewed, who requested that their
names be not mentioned, because their
positions might be at hazard. The old
coercion plan adopted again for this
year caused many who would have been
glad to have expressed their approval
of the ticket and platform to abstain
from showing their true colors.
J. A. Jeffers: "I am well pleased with
the Democratic ticket. I have always
been a Bryan man; I am satisfied with
Stevenson. The platform pleases me
and I expect t'o vote the Democratic
Ed. L. Smith: "The ticket is all right.
Bryan Is nil right. Stevenson Is all
right. The platform Is all right and
I am satisfied."

CANAL FULTON NEWS.
Canal Fulton, July 11.
Mrs. Rev. R. M. Yoder Is spending
the week with relatives In Holmes
Mrs. Fred GreisHinger, an aged citi
zen of Canal Fulton, died at the home
of her son-in-law, Leonard Pffafle,
Monday evening. The funeral will be
held from the Reformed church at 1
o'clock p. m. .
Slath Mobley, a former resident of
this place, and Harry Mabley, a twin
brother of Second Lieutenant Grler,
who Is serving his country In the
Philippines, are visiting. with Mr. C.
A. Vanderhoof, of this place.
Cyrus B. Fockler, who was In the
lumber business In this city and after
ward turned preacher and started out
to cure people by divine healing has
again gotten himself in trouble in
Mansfield. It will be remembered by
the citizens of Canton that Fockler
was In trouble In Mansfield about n
year ago. At that time he treated a
child in that city and the result was
that the child died. An Indictment was
brought against him by the Richland
county grand Jury nnd after going
through the courts Fockler was acquit
ted. While the Indljtment was stand
ing Fockler made several visits to this
city and was Interviewed by a Newi
Democrat representative. He saild at
that time that he was confident of be
ing acquitted as the courts could not
bump up against the rock of Christ
Jesus. The rock of Christ Jesus won
out nnd Fockler was acquitted.
Now he Is again In trouble. On July
4th a child of Charles Bauer, of Mans
field, died. The child was receiving
divine treatment from Fockler. The
case was brought to the attention of
the authorities and tho Coroner found
that the child came to Its death through
convulsions. The coroner also found
that the child had been treated by
Cyrus B. Fockler and believed that If
the proper medical treatment had been
administered the child would have lived,
Regarding his escape to Chicago the
Mansfield Shield says:
Cyrus B. Fockler made the wisest
move of his life Monday when he left
Mansfield for Chicago to confer with
Dowle, for had he remained In the cltv
Monday evening he would have surely
received a coat of tar nnd feathers
and much rough treatment adminis
tered by an infuriated crowd of citi
zens. About C o'clock In Central park a
plot was hatched to give the ZIon
elder a free rail ride and a coat of tir
and feathers. It was decided to pay
the home of Fockler a visit at 0
o'clock Monday evening. Accordingly
when the town clock struck the nine
o'clock hour the crowd, estimated from
230 to 500 men and boys with grim
determination on their features, moved
out of the park, down Park avenue
east and thence south to East Second
street to the home of Enoch II. Leiby,
209 East Second street, where Fockler
resides. The occupants of the house
were badly frightened and the Whole
neighborhood was aroused and turned
out to witness the result of the mob'n
visit. Loud were the cries for
Fockler and efforts were made to open
the doors, but In vain they were
locked. Finally Enoch Leiby, one ot
Fockler's flock, appeared at the door
and stated that Fockler had left the
city in the afternoon, but the crowd
was not satisfied.
Two or three members of Fockler's
flock appeared on the scene and tried
to prevent entrance to the house. It
looked as though trouble would surely
follow when Leiby finally announced
that he would allow one single member
of the crowd to enter the house to
search for Fockler. Accordingly a
well known young man was selected
and scoured the house from cellar to
garret but found no trace of the much
wanted man. The crowd was hardly
convinced and remained in the neigh
borhood for an hour. Several persons
carried with them ancient eggs, some
had a long rail and others had tar and
feathers. Among the asembled
crowd were many women and children
who were loud In their denunciation of
Fockler. A number of the crowd
drove to the scene In carriages. The
baffled crowd left swearing vengeance
upon Fockler and promising to repeat
their visit it Fockler returned to the
It Is stated that Fockler must have
had some Intimation of what would re

his way to the depot Monday evening
with his satchel in his hand. As it is,

field he will be in danger of personal

In such crises and should always be

Its every article, section and clause.
In accordance with this view Is the

The American people have so under
stood the matter. They have applaud
ed no extreme exercise of the presi
dent's power as commander In chief
except such as has been clearly In line
with the general purpose of the consti
tution to provide for the public de
fense and to maintain the integrity and
life of the republic.
They have approved of such exercises
of power only In great emergencies, as
when Jefferson acquired the Louisiana
territory In order to provide for effec
tive defense by securing control of the
Mississippi river from Its source to
the gulf, or when Lincoln emancipated
the slaves as a military measure.
Tho American people have never tol
erated any extreme exercise of the ex
ecutive power or any departure from
the prescribed order of the constitu
tion save In such emergencies. Any
thing approaching Its customary or
continuous exercise they have always
regarded as Intolerable.
They are now OBked to depart from
their unbroken usage. They are Invited
by the party In power to regard with
complacency the assumption of prac

of people, not'In a sudden crisis merely,
but continuously; not only In a case
where immediate action Is Imperatively
necessary and where either congress
cannot be convened or Its powers of
prompt action are inadequate, but as
an every day affair, and where con
gress has had ample time with unques
tioned power to act.
The American people cannot afford to
accustom themselves to look with In
difference upon this every-day exercise
of power, which is Imperial in fact if
not in name.
They cannot nfford It, because If they
tolerate such things they afford the
first designing man who succeeds In
winning their confidence all the oppor

military despotism at home as well as
If eternal vigilance Is the price of lib

power of the president from becoming
ordinary and familiar.

of the Hatter Bat Wanted
Nothing Bald Abont It
There were reports on the streets
early Wednesday that a plot had been
hatched In New York for the purpose
of taking the life of President McKlnley
and that Cubans and Spaniards had
a hand in It. Inquiry was made at the
McKlnley residence by a News-Democrat
man and it was stated there that
they knew nothing about the matter.
It Is a known fact that when the
president of the United States goes
anywhere there are detectives near.
This Is particularly true In Washing

They are by no means In constant at

but are where their services could

The Cleveland Leader has the following
concerning the alleged plot to assassin
ate the president:
At an early hour this morning the
following story, which the New York
World publishes today, was received by
the Leader by Associated Press:
"A plot to assassinate President Mc
Klnley has been frustrated. It was
concocted by a group of Spanish and
Cuban conspirators with headquarters
In New York.
"One of the plotters weakened and
sent a warning letter to a member of
the Republican national committee.
That letter was placed In the hands of
Secretary Charles F. Dick, who refer
red It to Chairman B. R Odell, of the
New York state committee, for investi
gation. Mr. Odell engaged a detective,
who speedily verified certain Important
allegations made In the warning letter.
Thereupon Mr. Odell reported to Secre
tary Dick, who laid all the facts
BEFORE CHAIRMAN HANNA.
"Mr. Odell's report caused great
alarm among the president's close
friends and advisers. Mr. Odell made
It plain that he regarded the plot as a
matter of the utmost seriousness and
urged that extreme precautions be
taken to, keep the president out of
"Messrs. Dick nnd Hanna laid the
whole matter before the president
shortly before he departed for Canton.
They instructed Mr. Odell to continue
his Investigation and cautioned him to
work with the utmost secrecy.
"To a World reporter last evening
Mr. Odell admitted that he and certain
members of the national committee had
discovered a plot to assassinate the

Odell, chairman of the New York Rft
nublican state committee, who was
quoted in a New York morning paper
as confirming the report that a plot to
assassinate President McKlnley had
been discovered and frustrated In thl3
city, gave out the following statement
at Republican headquarters here, this
"I have nothing to say upon tho sub
ject, except that I made an Investiga

except to express my regret that some
one has been indiscreet enough to make
of this trifling matter tho gigantic plot

DON'T BELIEVE IT.
A. Washington special to the News-
pemocrat says: Officials of the secret
service do not take much stock in the
story originated In New York, this
mofnlng, of an alleged plot to assassin
ate President McKlnley.
"No one mentioned any such con
spiracy to us," said Chief Wllkle. "Tho

Is It welt to keep alive the memory
tho massacre of Wyoming, as Is done
by commemorative exercises every
year? What good is done by recalling
annually the Incident of that dreadful
3d of July, 1778, when a force ot British,
Indians and tories murdered In cold
blood, a large body of tnen, women and
children? It was a fearful episode of
war, butwhat Is to be gained by dwell
ing upon it nearly a century and a
quarter after it occurred?
The Democrats are pretty certain to
carry New York this fall, but we think
the elimination of Roosevelt from the
politics of that state will have little ef
fect on the result. The Democrats will
win in New York not only because the
party Is united, but because of the vital
principles at stake. There has never
been' a contest In this country since the
pre-revolutlonary disputes between
Whig and Tory In which the Issues
were so clearly defined between Amer
ican and anti-American principles.

from the Philippines Into China, there
to co-onerate with the armies of the
European pwers in a combined attack
upon the Chinese, fn giving that order
the president went outside of the con

those established by himself. But as
the constitutlln has become obsolete,
seemingly, precedents no longer count.

Washington, July 11. Political
Prophets are now determining the fate
of President McKlnley's cabinet mem

that he will have tho second term,
they say that not more than one-half
of his present official family will ac

Journey. Attorney General Griggs, it
is said, has already told the president
that he cannot afford to accept the
position again. He Is losing from $40,

of the attorney general his law practice
in New Jersey being worth that.
Secretary of the Navy Long, it is said,
will retire after his present term of
