This means that the Sum mit county delegates will go the con vention unpledged so far as the gubernatorial nomination is con cerned. The Dobson oigan made one of its characteristically venomous attacks upon Councilman Fiebeger last nightbeeause that oillcialwas guided by his own best judgment, instead of by the wishes of the Republi can Machine, in voting upon seveial propositions before the Council last Monday night. Mi. Fiebeger was chaiged with being such an uncom promising partisan that in his capac ity as a public ollicial he permits the city's interests to suffer in older to serve bis party. So high does Mr. Fiebeger stand in the estimation of the citizens of Akron, and bo well merited is the confidence tlie people have in his ability and integrity as their lepiesentative, that anything, the disreputable Dobson organ may say against him is regarded as a vin dication rather than a condemna tion. Every citien of Akion who knows Mr. Fiebegei and few there are who do not knowslhat neither in public nor private life is he a bitter-partisan. This explains why the attack made upon him last, night is being so geneially condemned by Aki on's business men today as being -vicious and wholly undeserved.
