GOOD WORDS FOR JUDGE GRANT.
Elsewhere in this issue the Demo
crat publishes the translation of
Editor Seybold's comment, in yes
terday's Akron Germania, upon the
candidacy of Hon. C. R. Graut for
nomination for Justice of the Su
preme Court.
Editor Seybold's warm commenda
tion of the candidacy of Judge
Grant, and his earnest tribute to the
excellent personal character and
qualifications and high standing of
the Judge at the bar, will be read
with pleasure by the latter's many
friends in Summit county and else
where throughout Ohio. But this is
only one of the many testimonials
Judge Grant is receiving from Re
publicans as well as Democrats since
the announcement of his candidacy
last Saturday, and he has every rea
son to feel encouraged.
Yesterday one of the most influ
ential members of the Cuyahoga
county bar, in a letter to the Judge,
informed him that his candidacy
would receive the' hearty endorse
ment of his fellow barristers and that
they would use all their influence in
behalf of his candidacy.
As.the Democrat announced Sat
urday, the Judge's candidacy
depends upon his endorsement by the
Summit county convention. The
Democrat is receiving a number of
communications from prominent
local Democrats, and from independ
ent Republicans who expect to sup
port the Democratic ticket 'this
fall if it does the right thing in its
nominations and pledges of legisla
tion, endorsing the candidacy of the
Judge and urging the local conven
tion to stand unitedly by him. Sev
eral communications along this line
are published today.
THE PASSING OF FORAKER.
Senator Foraker will getlittle pub
lic sympathy to enoourage him in
resisting the organized attacks that
are being made upon him under the
direction of Mark Hanna.
Time was when a word from Fora
ker would have rallied to his" support
thousands of loyal supporters; but
his weak compromises with his
political enemies to favor his own
selfish interests, his faithlessness to
his friends on occasions when they
most needed his assistance, and his
notorious connection with the inter
ests of the trusts, whether as paid
agent or lobbyist, have left him with
out a following, and at the mercy of
the unscrupulous leaders who domi
nate his party.
The fight now being made upon the
Senior Senator is merely the prelim
inary to his defeat for re-election to
the Senate two years hence, and the
election in his stead of a man to be
named by Hanna. Foraker is pass
ing into political oblivion, and pass
ing rapidly.
The opposition to the selection of
Col. Dick as manager of the Hash
campaign, feeble at its best, is not
much in evidence any more. A party
that will stand the strain imposed
upon it by such notorious methods as
practiced by Hanna and Cox at the
recent convention, is not likely to
break down under the additional
weight of Dick.
According to a call decided upon
last night by the Committee of Fif
teen, delegates from Cuya'hoga
county to the state convention will
be selected on July 6. The conven
tion to nominate county officers will
probably toe held on July 8.
The Franklin County Association
of Democratic clubs will issue a call
for a state convention of Democratic
clubs, to be held at Columbus July G
and 7. The Akron Democratic club
should be well represented at this
convention.
He?aed Ilcd Tape.
The late Senator Morrill of Vermont,
was as careful of the public property as
if he bought and paid for it out of his
private puree. He always carefully un
tied and saved the piece of red taps that
came around his mail, in consequence
of which, his. room was the only com
mittee room that never made a requisi
tion for tape.

HEART FAILURE
has often been styled the cause of death
in persons who have long lingered in
disease. The amazing work which the
heart regularly performs would certainly
pre-suppose its breaking down. The most
active climber can raise himself 1000
feet in an hour, the best loco
motive 4000 feet and th'e heart
20.000 feet. To preserve its
energies in full glow

One person out of every four has a
weak or diseased heart, and yet very
few people are aware of it. The
trouble is that most doctors do not
understand heart troubles. They
very often tre.at patients for dis
orders of the stomach, lungs and
kidneys, when the trouble is in the
heart itself. Anyone with weak
heart is always in grave danger, and
proper attention is absolutely neces
sary. People drop dead every day
from heart disease. Beware of
fluttering of the heart, palpitation,
or skipping beats (always due to
weak or diseased hearts.) numbness
or pain in the left side, or under
shoulder blade, fainting spells, dizzi
ness, spots before the eyes, sudden
starting in sleep, nightmare, choking,
sensation in hands and feet, swell
ing of the feetand ankles (one of the
surest signs;) also, neuralgia around
the heart. Heart disease is always
fatal unless properly treated in the
beginning, and death comes like a
flash of lightning.

pecially prepared to meet the de
mand for a good .heart tonic. It is

Haxila, June 14. General Lawton
unexpectedly stirred up one of the live
liest engagements of tho" war south of
Las Pinas Tuesday, upon which occa
sion American field guns were engaged
in the first artillery duel against a Fili
pino battery concealed in the jungle.
Companies F and I of the Twenty-
nrst lurintry were nearly surrounded
by a large body of insurgents, but the
Americans ctft their " way oat with
heavy -loss.
The United States turret ship Monad
nock and the gunboats Helena and. Z-a-firo
trained their batteries ou Bakoor
and the rebel trenches near Las Pinas.
Bakoor was once on fire, but the natives
stopped the spread of the flames.
During the night au insurgent cannon
was fired three times at the Americans
on tlie outskirts of Las Pinas. General
Lawton, Tuesday .rooming, took a bat
talion of the Fourteenth regiment and
two companies of the Twenty-first regi
ment to locate the rebel battery and
then two guns of tne Sixth artillery aud
four mountain guns were plauted
against it at 00j yards distance. The
rebels had :i largo gun from which they
were firing home made canister loaded
with nails and two smaller guns.
Their shooting was most accurate
Tho first lot of cauuister burse directly
in front of Scott's guns and anothar
shattered the legs of a private iu the
Fourteenth inlantry. Several shots
struck the edge of the town. The coun
try traversed was a bad place, being
mainly lagoons, mud and water fringed
with bamboos.
As soon as the fighting opened the
Americans wero attacked by hidden
riflemen on all sides, even the Amigos,
or "friendly" natives in the hpuses of
the town, shooting into their rear.
Tho companies of tho Twenty-first
regiment, skirmishiug' along the beach
with Amigo guides, found apparently a
handful ot rebels, who retreated. The
men of the Twenty-first followed and
suddenly the rebels opened' a terrific fire
on the troops from the sides and rear.
The soldiers withdrew to the -water's
edge, -finding what shelter they could
and were picked off rapidly. After the.
ammunition was nearly exhausted the
companies of tho Tweutry-first re
treated, but General Lawton dashed
down and rallied the men.
A little group made a stand, General
Lawton, Major Starr and Lieutenants
Donovan tincl Sonnell taking rifles from
the wounded men aud firing at the
enemy, bringing down some of the
rebel sharpshooters from a tree. Finally
their cartridges were all gone aud they
were lorced to break through the
enemy's flank, carrying the wounded to
the main body of the troops.
Lieutenant Donovan whose leg was
broken, floundered lor a mile through a
bog after leading his mon in the face ot
a greatly superior force.
General Biwtou ceased fighting until
reinforcements could 'bo brought up.
Two battalions of tho Fourteenth
regiment and ono battalion of tho Ninth
regiment wero hurried to thefroutaud
in tho afternoon the battle was resumed.
The Monadnock anchored close to the
shore and her heavy guns pounded thu
rebels continuously, whilo tho smaller.
warships, steaming along tho shore,
poured bullets from their rapid-firo guns
at tho euomy.
Tho Filipino forco engaged appeared
to nave been tne largest aud Lejt orga
nized body which had met our troops.
Ihe Americans were compelled t j ad
vance nljng marrow roads and over
small bridges commanded by earthworks
ten teet tlncE.
The ou.y means of crossing the Za
pote was a small bridge, which the Fili
pinos commanded with trenches spread
ing -shaped, whence they could con
centrate tneir fire oil the bridge. They
also had the advantage of the trees ani
jungle, so tho Americans could hardly
see a neud.
Vnen the baitle was resumed with
the leinforcenients, our battery having
silenced the enemy's guns, the Ameri
cans wadin waist deep in tho mnd of
the salt Har.s slowly and pouring steady
volleys.of n-.isL.etry at the rebels, droe
their opponents beyond the river. Then
the two armies lay facing each oth'r
across the deep stream, the enemy prac
f'cally out of sight while the men in
bine "and khaki lay in the mud and
bushes, many of theni withontrany shel
ter, for three hours without a moment's
ceasing in tho fight, firing bullets at rhe
enemy as fast as they could load. The
rifles blended into a continuous roar so
vastly different from the intermittent
skirmishlike rattle of most of the" en
gagements. One battalion after another General
Lawton summoned the reserve from
Las Piuas until only enough troops
were left in the town to prevent the
Filipinos from attacking the Americans
in the rear, which was feared, as they
were creeping around our left through
the woods, delivering a flanking fire
which put a great strain upon the en
durance of the Americans who were
floundering in the mud across the river,
while on the right the Filininos sharp
shooters, hidden in the trees, were pep
pering our men. But, thanks to the
poor marksmanship of the rebels, our
Joss was not as great as it would hava
beeu if the Filipinos had shot straight.
An army, however, seldom fougi
under a greater ban -icap or more cor.(
ageously than did our regulars,, a m -jority
of whom were, comparative
jpeaking, recruits, who could have
been nardoned for retiring, iu the face
of sneh a fierce fire, froiti their exposed
positions.
The "Fourteenth regiment lay to the
rigid ot the bridge and in trout of
tflcui was the Twelfth regiment, with
tho Ninth ou tho right aud the Twenty
first upon the toad, faciug the bridge,
which was the key to the situation.
On tlfe bridge were the bodies of two
Americans who had" atempted to rush
across, and many wounded men were
carried from tho open ground before
the bridge .
After firing in volleys for a short
time, the Americans weie ordered to
file whenand where they could see the
enemy. It was every man for himself
aud the best our men could do was to
aim at tiie faint mists arising from the
rebels' smokeless powder.
General Lawton. though exhausted
by the morning's fight,.rallied by sheer
Will power and was the commanding
figure in the battle. He went along the
lines directing and encouraging the
troops.
General Wheaton and General Oven
shine were equally courageous. In fact
the generals were among the few men
ou the battleueid who refused to take
shelter under the hottest fire.
The only approach to the fighting
ground was by a narrow and winding
road, where the rebel bullets dropped
thickly, wounding several of our men.
About 4 o'clock there was au hour's
lull in the lighting and an artillery ser
geaut galloped back to where two guns
ot the mountain battery were waiting
in reserve and shouted:
"Bring up those gnus."
The sergeant then tumbled exhausted
from his horse.
Twenty wounded men were carried
to a cascoe (native boat) Waitmg"ou tho
beach, which was rowed to Paranarme.
It was impossible at present to esti
mate tho number of Filipino dead.
There were many dead bodies in the
fields the Americans traversed.
This battlefield, incidentally, was for
merly the scuue of several of the great
est struggles between the Spaniards and
the Filipinos. The Zapote was consid
ered impregnable, and hundreds of
Spaniards and Filipinos were killed
while fighting over the same bridge in
former contents for its possession. Iu
June, 1807, Generals Pio del Pilar and
Trias turned a scale of war on the side
of the Filipinos by deserting the Span
ish army there on the eve of a decisive
battle, carrying the native militia with
them and thereby breaking the chain of
defenses around Manila
Manila, Juno 14. There reached
here information, believed to bo reliable,
that General Luna and his aid-de-camp,
Lieutenant Pasco Ramon, on Juno 8,
were assassinated by some of Aguin
aldo's guard at the- headquarters of
Aguinaldo.
Luna aud Ramon, it appeared, went
to tho Filipino headquarters to confer
with Aguinaldo, got into au altercation
with the captain of the guard and one
of them drew a revolver. The guard
then killed Luna and Ramon with their
bayonets.
General Antonio Luna was the bit
terest foe of peace with whom Ameri
cans had to deal, and it was hinted that
his death was brought about by Aguin
aldo, whose offer of peace had been op
posed by the" fighting general. Luna
was an irreconcilable, and his death will
leave Aguinaldo and his followers free
to treat with the Americans. Even the
rank and file of the Filipinos hope the
report of Luna's death is true, as they
see iu it an omen of peace.

of State Senator Lesch is somewhat

during the afternoon and has shown

Friend Why do you get married so
soon after the death of your husband?
Widow My dear, if there was any
one thing that my poor dead and gone
husband insisted upon, in season and
out, it was that I should never put off
till tomorrow-what I could do today.

not more surely

The child that is
born with a shallow,

youth who daily
crouches over an
office desk; the me
chanic who toils in
an atmosphere of
dust, and the woman whose .household
duties constantly restrict her tq. the close,
heated atmosphere of her home, all live
under the blighting shadow of consump

curing all the abnormal conditions which,
if neglected lead up to consumption.
Mrs. Josie E. Clark, of Enterprise, Shelby Co.,
Mo., writes: " I had despaired of ever getting
well. I had been in bad health for twelve years.
Had aches all through me, numb hands, cold
feet, and everything I ate distressed me; bowels
constipated, was very nervous, depressed and
despondent. I have taken six bottles of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, and my
health is now good."
Constipation disappears while you sleep
when you take Dr. Pierce's Pellets.
