Each pamphlet is accompanied by a circular letter, signed by .1. F. Druekeiniller, the local manager.

"The experience of telephone users in other cities, where compet ing' companies have gone into opera tion, has demonstrated that the cost of service to the individual user is greater under such condition, than where the business tats conducted by one company.

The Union Match company, which was incorporated unde the laws of New Jersey Monday with a capital of $10,000,000. it is claimed, will not be in any way connected with the Diamond Match company.. This is the statement made by the incorpo rators. Advices from New York give additional details which tend to show that this is untrue. It is be-. lieved that the Diamond Match com pany has made arrangements with Edwin Gould, whereby the two match industries an- combined or that the Diamond company is be hind the recently organized corpora tion and that it will build an immense plant near Gould's for the purpof-e of making a light for the complete con trol of the business. O. C. Barber, president of the Dia mond Match company, when approached- by a Dkmochat reporter expressed complete ignorance of the new company, its aims or objects.

DAUGHERTY Does Not Please Dick. He Evaded Making Any: Reference to Him. Looks Upon Judge Nash With Much Favor. Would Accept the Chairman- ship If Offered. Believes Col. William. J. Byran be Renominated. Will Col. Charles Dick returned Irom Cleveland Tuesday night, where ho had been in conference with Senator Hanua during the afternoon. "Wednesday morning he spoke freely with a Democrat reporter in reference to the political situation and the probable gubernatoral nominee. He politely declined, however, to divulge the nature of the business discussed in his conference with Mr. Hanna, but said that it pertained to national committee affairs. In reply to the question, as to who wns the Administration's choice for governor he said: "There has been no disposition on the part of the ad ministration to favor any particular man, only so far as it gives its pref erence to any person who is a loyal administration man, and one who has the best interest of his party at ' henrt- "It has been reported that, the ad- niinstration has agreed upon Mr. Nash. Is there any truth in the re port?" was asked. "No sir," was the emphatic reply. "Mr. Nash would be very acceptable as would a number of other good men. but the national Republicans ,' hitve Hot centered upon any man." The candidacy of Daugherty was mentioned, and his acceptability to the administration asked. On this subject lie was rather evasive. Col. Dick replied inanswer to the ques tion whether or not he was an aspi rant for the chairmanship of the State Convention. "1 'haxe never aspired to that honor, and I am not a candidate. The question is almost new to me." "Would you accept it if it were tendered you?" was asked. "That I cannot answer," was h answer. Senator Foraker's return to the Hanna fold was discussed and tho Colouel's opinion solicited in regard to the sincerity of Mr. Foraker's mo tive. "Senator Foraker's motive is not questioned; he is faithfully exerting himself on behalf of party unity for this year and for all years to coino." From the foregoing statement it can be reasonably inferred that the Colonel expects Foraker to toot a horn in the Hanna band which he believes will play so lustily at tho next convention. He expressed his confidence that the administration would "be in tho majority when the roll was called, and further anticipated no factional friction at the convention. His attention was called to the newspaper account of Secretary Sherman's political rehabilitation. "I have not heard of Mr. Sherman's name mentioned in that connection. He has, however, shown his willing ness toaecept any trust his constit uents may see fit to honor him with. I don't believe that he will be a can-, didate." While in Hot Springs, Col. Dick met Paul Sorg, who until recently was considered the probable Demo cratic nominee. Mr. Sorg informed the Colonel that he had renounced politics, however, and would herd after lead a retired life. "I believe Mr. Sorgis "the strongest man tho Democrats could put forth. He would make a good fight." Referring to national politics he said that Col. Bryan would beiioini nated. but forgot to meiition'that he would also bo elected. Col. Dick N greatly pleased with ' .the present situation and political) outlook and is even sanguine that it ' will be a walkover for the Hanna forces. ATTACHMENT.

Is It Malaria or Alum? f Popular Sclcuon Jlonthly.l Languor, loss of appetite, indiges tion and often feverishness arc the common symptoms of a physiological condition termed "malaria." xVll these symptoms may be and fre quently are the effect of the use of alum baking powders- in food mak ing. There is no question about the" poisionous effect of alum upon the system. It obstructs digestion, pros trates the nerves, coagulates and devitalizes the blood. All this has been made clear, thanks to physi cians, boards of health, and food coin- inissous. So "hiirblv ininrinns to i the health of the eo'mnmnitv" does the eminent head of the Unlversitv ! or rennsyivania, ur. .Barker, con sider the alum baking powders, that he says "their sale should be jirohib ited by law." Under these circumstances it is worth the while of every housewife. to employ the very little care that is necessary to keep- so dangerous an clement from tho food of her family. A pure cream of tartar baking pow der, which is tho only kind that should be used, ought to cost about forty-five .to fifty cents a pound. Therefore, if you are paying" much less, something is wrong; if you are paying twenty-five cents or less por pound, the powder is certainly made Irom alum. Always bear thcscsimplo facts hi mind when purchasing baking pow der. DRAW. Twenty Fast Rounds Were Fought by Maher and Ruhliiu Referee Unable to Pick the Winner. Both Men Were Strong The Finish. at Jimmy Gardner Met Accident. With an Gus Ruhlin demonstrated Tuesday night that he is made of champion ship timber. He more than held his own with a i man who has long been looked upon as a top notcher. and whose exper ience in the ring commenced long before the Akron heavyweight knew what n pair of boxing gloves looked like. The fight, under the auspices of the Lenox Athletic club, New York, was "witnessed by a crowd of more than 6,000, made up of representative sporting men. Maher was a prime favorite before the battle, odds of 100 tobO being offered on thelrish cham pion. After the first round even 1 n,on.v was ottered on Ruhlin. The j returns, on the light were received in thiscity. Ruhlin's friends were en- thusiastic oyer the showing he made. But little money was posted on the j result in Akron. Maher weighed 1S1 pound.- and f Ruhlin 100. As soon as the referee called them together for instructions Maher sized up his opponent and as he retired to his corner he said: 'I've got an easy thing." The moment the men shook hands in the opening round Ruhlin went right to his man and landed a right smash on Maher, which almost closed the optic. A hard right on j tho body sent Ruhlin to the door and ! he took the limit to get up. Peter smashed a hard right to the light eye, bleeding it, and each slugged until the bell rang. In the second Ruhlin had all the better of the argument, ' sending straight lefts to the face, while Peter played for the body. Both of Maher's eyes were well bunged when he toed the mark for the seventh round, during which he failed to make any visible impres sion on Ruhlin's countenance. In the eighth, after a long spell of sparring, Ruhlin sent his right irp under Maher's chin, but there was not sufficient force in the ,blow to count. Toward the end of this round Ruhlin sent a hard left to Maher's left eye. drawing blood, and the Irishman went back with both hands swinging on neck and body. Maher was the stronger when the bell rang. Ruhlin forced the fight in the twelfth, landiugjioth hands on face and chest with vigor, while Maher played continually for the body, with a lookout for a possible cross on the jaw. At the beginning of the next round Ruhlin was by far the strong er,' but helms very careful. He was fooled by a feint for the jaw and ducked into a clean uppercut on the chin, b.ut Maher's blow lacked steam. Maher had the call at the bell. In the sixteenth the pace which both had maintained up to this time wns evidently having serious effect on each of the lighters, and Maher. contrary to all prediction, as lo-liN staying qualities, came out of the mill at the close of- the round by far the fresher of the two. 'Hound 20 Maher led, but failed to 'ilIul- Ruhlin landed a right on the : iijtori .iiifi iiiinur iiiiMiirni'iif i mi i stomach. Ruhlin tried a, left hand for the head, but missed and Maher got under countering on the wind. Maher was willing to rush matters, but Ruhlin stood oil his rushes and the referee declared it a draw.

Hard arrived in this city last night and weld almost immed iately to the residence of Col. Chas. Dick, where he remained until after midnight. He was seen Wednesday morning by a Dkmocrat reporter, and said that his. conference with Col. Dick was in regard to regimental affairs. He threw some light upon the disor ganization of the Ohio Guard. Col. Dick told him that the abolishing of a number of companies of the guards was the result of lack of funds. At present the State is in no posi tion to re-equip the companies; the extra pressure caused by the recent war all but depleted the treasury. Only 34 companies remain under the present organization, and a coni- j-p:y constitutes the highest and ! lowest unit or division. All the officers under tho colonels will be discharged. The colonels and the officers of higher rank are held by reason, of property accountability. As soon a this is adjusted they will be discharged also. Consequently there are now no brigade regiments, etc.. the different companies being under orders from the adjutant gen eral only. PERSONALS.
