"NUMBER 37 AKRON, OHIO, FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 2, 1899. PRICE ONE CENT AKRON I K THREE Witnesses Examined. Case of Prof. Glover Received Attention. Prof. Thomas Acted as Cro'ss Examiner. Dr. F. C. Reed Asks Questions For the Defense. Reported That Damage Cases Will be Brought. Tt was Btated Friday that Prof. K. S. Thomas would institute damage cases against the witnesses who give testimony before the investigation committee. Those who have been the most active in bringing about the investi-, gation say that this report has had th$.effect of intimidating the teach- crs and other parties, who were ex pected to testify before the commit tee. The committee met at the superin tendents office Thursday night. But three witnesses were examined. The case of Prof. N. L. Glover was con sidered. It will be remembered that a $400 cut was made in his salary. He claims that Prof. Thomas told him that he had protested against the reduction. Two members of the Committee on Teachers aud Salaries, Messrs. Frese and Kelly, say that Prof. Thomas, instead of remonstrat ing against the induction, recom mended that the cut be made. The witnesses examined Thursday even ing were Messrs. Frese and Kelley and Prof. Glover. Prof. Thomas is present at every session of the committee, acting in the capacity of a. cross examiner. Dr. F. C. Reed, who is a member of the committee, it is said, asks ques tions that are calculated to create a sentiment in favor of Prof. Thomas.

Before Senator Haiina retired last night he remarked that the gubernatorial con test was, to him, "like a Chinese puzzle," but it developed' in the con vention this morning that he was merely joking. The balloting for governor demon strated that the Hanna forces were in complete control, for Judge Nash, of Columbus, the Hanna favorite, was nominated with ease. After the Oratorical fireworks had been touched off at the opening of the convention this morning the bal loting for governor began. The first ballot resulted: Nash 2S9, Daughertv 216, Douglas 61, Asa Jones 76, Durbin 46, Hall 39, Nevin 82, Orr 17. Summit county divided its vote be tween Nash and J)augherty, with one each for Durbin and Nevin. Nash Nominated. Nash was nominated on the second ballot, receiving 388 votes. The strength of Douglas, Durbin and a part of the Hamilton county vote controlled by Boss Cox, that had been scattered on the first ballot, made the nomination possible. On motion of Chairman Holcomb of the Cuyahoga delegation, a leading Daugherty man, the nomination was made unanimous. Boss Cox Defeated Alexander. John" A. Caldwen, of Cincinnati, was nominated for Lieutenant Gov ernor on the first ballot, defeating-J. Park Alexander of Akron and Capt. E. S. Stanbery Wilson of Ironton. Caldwell is a favorite of Boss Cox, of Cincinnati, who supported him in part as a means of evening the score with Senator Alexander for legislat ing Cox's Board of Public Affairs and subordinates out of office last winter. , Other Nominations. W. D. Guilbert was re-nomiuated for Auditor of State by acclamation. I. W. Cameron of Columbiana was nominated for Treasurer on the first ballot. Attorney General. On the third ballot J. M. Sheets of Putnam county was nominated for attorney general. Motion to make unanimous carried. . TALKED HARMONY ....SCHOOL CHILDREN'S DAY.... Randolph Park.

Telephone connection between Akron and Cleveland was cut off Thursday afternoon. The heavy storm blew a large tree down at the Boston Ledges, owned bv William H. Evans, the well known real estate man. The tree fell across the Central Union wire and broke it. When the companyte lineman went to repair the damage they met with resistance by Mr. Evans. He ordered the men off his premises. They refused to go. He then armed himself with a double barrelled shot gun and threatened to shoot the first man that attempted to put the wire up on his property. The Central Union sought relief last night by getting an injunction from Judge Stone, of Cleveland, restrain ing Mr. Evans from interfering with the company's lines. Mr. Evans was at the Ledges at the time the storm occurred Idoking after the construc tion of addition to his pavillion. Mr. Evans' Statement. His son, William H. Evans jr., made the following statement to a Democrat reporter Friday morning, He said : "Several years ago the Central Union Co. had its line on the east side of the road. When the A., B. & C. put wires on the east side, the Central Union moved to the west side. It made arrangements with L. K. Ranney, a farmer, south of the Boston Ledges, to put poles on his property. Without asking us the company .afterward intended to cross a corner of our property. Its men trimmed the trees in order to get a line through. The trees were damaged to such an extent that it will eventually kill them. The trees were of special value to us as they furnished abundant shade for our patrons waiting for cars. We ad dressed several letters to telephone oflicials, but received no satisfaction. i'hen we dropped the matter until yesterday, when the storm blew down a tree, which fell across their line, completely breaking it. When they came up Thursday to repair the same we objected to their putting the line on our property, but were per fectly willing to let them put it up in the road. "Sheriff Kelly served an injunction which had been issued by Judge Stoun of Cleveland. Early this morning we consulted an attorney in regard to the matter and fully in tended to obey the orders of the court." The line was repaired today. Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup cures the most stubborn coughs, colds and lung affections. Even incipient con sumption lias been successfully cured by this marvelous remedy. Sufferers will obtain relief after a few doses. " LAST LINKS. HI0RE imn EVER Demonstrating the fact that we sell Good Goods Lower than any House in this city.

We did not like it at first, because it was not. made according to direc tions, but sirtce we have come to know that it must be boiled, we are enthusiastic in its praise. I give lessons in cooking, and am naturally brought in contact with a great many people whose habits of food and drink 1 leivrn. I find that many families have come to know of the advantagoof Postuin Food CofTee and have abandoned common colfee altogether. I could send you a long listol these U you care lor it.

Mrs. Myra .1. TiWlar, 303 W. 6th Ml., KanmiH City, Mo. Indulge In a Controversy on Sunday Observance. Rev. J. R. Rulledge, formerly pas tor of the Main Street M. E. church, has evidently touched the "Mayor of Glenville in a tender spot. The Cleveland Plain Dealer has the following: The village of Glenville is con siderably stirred up over a row be tween Mayor Wright and the Rev. J. R. Rutledge. The minister said something in prayer meeting reflecting on the vil lage omciais and the mayor took ex ceptions to the utterances and called upon the minister. The result of the call was some pretty warm talk be tween the two gentlemen. In the prayer meetiinr Rev. Rut; ledge said all the village oflicials had Mtrcii imrr.rui.cn passe:, m .Tjlicnu Beach park. He declared they had no business to accept such favors as it interfered with the administration of the village affairs. Mayor Wright told the minister lie had not received any pass but that if one were presented to him he'd ac cept It mighty quick and if he want ed to go to the park on Sunday in stead of going to church, he'd go. The minister said the saloons of Glenville were open Sunday. The mayor told him to all intents tlio sa loons were closed and that ho did not intend to "sneak" around back alleys to iind out otherwise. "It's iny business to preserve pub lic peace," said tin mayor, -'and I am doincr that. Another thinsr, a man has as much moral right to take t a glass oi beer on snnuay as lie lias to go to church; .if a man wants to go fishing on Sunday instead of co- mg to church he has a perfect right to (to so."
