DICK CONFIRMS IT. Will Manage the Campaign For Judge Nash. A special to the Enquirer from Columbus says : "The exclusive announcement in The Enquirer this morning that Colonel Charles XV. V. Dick is to bo tho Republican Campaign Chairman is confirmed tonight, by a telegram received here from the Akron man himself. Iir this message Colonel Dick says it has been definitely de cided that he is to manage the con test. "John R. Malloy, who doubtless will be the Secretary of the Execu tive' Committee, returned this after noori .from Cleveland, where he has been in conference with Senator Hanna since yesterday, with regard to the management of the campaign. It is understood that unusual respon sibility is to .fall on the secretary this year, inasmuch as it is the plan of Mr. Hanna to have Colonel Dick devote considerable attention to the preliminary work of the Presidential contest, not only in Ohio, but through out the country." PROTESTS Against the Proposed Annexation to Akron. Three Different Remonstrances Are Being Circulated by Residents. The proposed annexation of prop erty surrounding Akron has stirred up hundreds of residents living in the outskirts. A petition is being circulated on North Hill, which has received 145 signatures, protesting against being annexed. Their reason for this is that the benefits to be derived are not sufficient to warrant the annexa tion, as they claim they will not re ceive any advantages, but be com pelled to pay higher taxes. On West Hill and near the AVoos ter ave. street car barn similar peti tions are being circulated and freely signed. It is said, nine-tenths op pose annexation. The three petitions will be presented to .the County Com missioners. All the petitions ask the Commis sioners to abide by the majority. PECULIAR PETITION. Citizens Want a Shrill Choked Off. Whistle Citizens living in the community adjacent to the India Rubber Go's plant will, in a few days, it is said, present a petition to the City Com missioners asking that the present whistle of the plant be- either sub dued or a new whistle put in use. The whistle is especially strong and shrill. Tin strong points in the ob jection are that nervous or sick per sons can scarcely endure it. PENSION INCREASED The pension of Johann Bro'esamle of Ak ron has been increased from $8 po $12 per month; JEFFRIES Picked as the Winner By the Old Time Cham pion John L Sullivan. I The Hero of the Prize Ring Is Here. Gives His Opinion of the Com ing Battle. Program of Races at Fountain Park Today. The famous John L. Sullivan is here. He, in company with the members of his comedy and vaudeville com pany, arrived in the city from Tiffin about 6 o'clock this morning. The company is at the Empire house. As soon as he arrived John L. went right to bed and remained there the greater part, of the day. He has not had much' sleep for the past few days, but is taking a good rest today. "When seen at his room today by a Dkmockat reporter the great ex- champion was in a good humor and conversed pleasantly. John is the pink of politeness when it comes to treating reporters with courtesy. Sullivan's weight is now 295 pounds. He is five feet pleven inches tall, and presents a good appearance. His hair is slightly streaked with gray, but there is -nothing about him to indicate premature old age, and when one realize's the battles he has gone through, ajittlo idea of his iron constitution may be given. Sullivan is now in his 40th year. "When asked his. opinion regarding the out come of the championship battle between Fitzsimmons and Jeffries Friday evening, Sullivan remarked emphatically that Jeffries will win. He added: ""Jeffries is a mighty strong and clever boxer. The Cornishman will meet his Waterloo when he comes up against the big California boilermaker. I learn that the authorities are not going to per mit any knockout slugging to be done; that it must be a scientific boxing exhibition only. That will make it lose some of its red-hot in terest." "But say,' continued John, "You must keep your eye on what Jeffries does with his left duke. .He can strike like a trip-hammer." John also regretted that pugilism is losing some of its vim and vigor. "It is not like the days when T used to go into the ring," he said. And when one recalls the fight between Sullivan and Kilrain, when they fought 75 "rounds with bare knuckles, there's lots of truth in what the ex champion says. - Jake Kilrain is with Sullivan. He weighs 254 pounds and looks well. He and Sullivan spar at the conclus ion of the -vaudeville performance tonight. "I'm as strong as ever I was," said John, "and if I could only reduce my weight I'd made the fur fly off the best of them yet." Not long ago he weighed over 300 pounds. Sullivan closes his theatrical sea son at Youngstown Saturday night. He likes the show business first rate. The Sullivan comedy and vaude ville company is a good one. There are 21 members of the company here today. Among the number are some good artists. The performance to night at the Grand Opera house will be introduced with the one-act com edy, "A Trip Across the Ocean." Following will be a number of vau- doville performances. In the com edy Sullivan is first, introduced. He . has a part to perform, and it is said he is quite clever. The show will be concludedwith a sparring match be tween Sullivan and Kilrain. The Races.
