Hon. J. Park Alexander is still a
big factor in Summit county politics.
His enemies paid just after
the Painesville convention that the
Senator had been permanently
shelved, and that he would never
again be heard from in a political
That they made a grievous mis
take in assuming this to be true, is
evidenced by Senator Alexander's
statement, made to a Diimookat re
porter Friday. He was asked if he
had retired from any active work in
directing tne altairs or ins party in
this city and county.
To this question he answered nit
emphatically, "No, sir!"
"Are you a candidate for the Re
publican nomination as Representa
tive," was asked.
"I am not a candidate and have so
informed my friends. I have been
asked i be a. candidate, but will not
accede to (he desires of those who
made the request."

foolish to attempt to defeat them for

the fight would be on the re
election." "Will you, if they are renominated,
work against them for re-election?"

answer this question. He stated
that he prefered not to be quoted on
the matter at all. Later he made
this very significant remark: "I do
not believe that City or County
elections cut any figure at all in
national political aifairs."
During the conversation he placed
himself on record as favoring the
primary system of nominating dele
gates. This led to a discussion of
the convention at Painesville, at
which, it will be well remembered,
Senator Alexander was, for the
second time "slaughtered in the
house of his friends."
Referring to this, he said: "The
methods adopted to defeat mo at
Painesville were contemptible. It
was a cut throat ..game from begin
ning to end. The delegations from
this county to the convention were
selected for the purpose of defeating
me. Iu the wards the delegations

again called.
Mr. Welker said that he was not
familiar with the system used by

Ohio has purchased the Pittsburg &
Western bonds held by the Lake
Erie & Western, thus obtaining con
trol of the road.
The Pittsburg & Western is a very
valuable connection for the Balti
more & Ohio. It starts at Pittsburg
and runs to J airport, O., winch
makes it valuable as an ore and coal
carrying road. Incidently, it might
be said that it has done a vast
amount of business in that territory
for the B. & O. in the last few years.
The road has also a cross line to Buf
falo and one running from Warren,
O., west to Akron, where it makes
direct connection with the Western
division of the B. & O. It also has a
line running from Butler to Orinsby,
which is a valuable strip for freight
business. The railroad guides give
the road a total mileage of about
2,356 miles.
Concerning the future of the Cleve
land Terminal & Valley there is very
little doubt. It has been considered
for a long time as a part of the Balti

ently be taken in. The reorganiza

days that, any day may see the ab

"I have been a user of cofiee for

I steadily lost strength and health.
I was finally forced to enter the

In five months I left the hospital

I found in my absence my good wife

like it I will give you coffee." I did
so, but with an anticipated bad opin

has been in daily use at our tabic,

now directly trace, in a great, meas

I consider that one of the strongest

The attack made on Guard Blocker
at the penitentiary by Otis Hurley
will not result fatally as at first
feared. His condition has improved
and it is now believed that the
danger point has been passed.
"According to the information re
ceived by the penitentiary officials
Otis Hurley comes from bad an
tecedents," says the Columbus Dis
patch. "He was arrested a number
of times by the Dayton police before
they were able to land him in the
big prison for a term of years.
While iu the Dayton jail he plaved
insane and the sheriff was compelled
to nauuie mm without gloves. On
one occasion he went too far and the
sheriff 'persuaded' him to behave Thirteen are still pending.
hose was laid on with considerable
vigor, but at the same time it left
but few bruises. After it Avas all
over Hurley thanked the sheriff for
the 'striking' lesson he had taught
and after that thero was no further
trouble between them, for the
prisoner obeyed the rules of the jail.
Hurley has always been known for
his treachery.
"The prison officers say that he is
known to be one of the kind of men
who always smiles and affects tho
best of humor until the intended vic
tim is thrown off his guard when a
knife or some otherweapon is plung
ed into him. Miss Daisy Spragne
was given no admonition that ho in
tended her the least harm before tho
knife was plunged into her breast,
and Guard Blocker was treated in
the"!saino manner before the "stab
ber" was plunged into his bowels. It
was the pleasant smile and oily way
of the prisoner, who protested that
lie was about to do the guard a favor,
that threw him off his guard, and
the next moment an effort was made
to kill him. Even after the btabber
had been plunged into his bowels
Hurley gave no intimation by word
or act that ho was not in the best of
humor or that he held any enmity to
the guard.
"The prison officials realize that
Hurley is soured against the world
and has no use for any person that
cannot bo used by him. Another
tiling that enters into his frame of
mind is tho fact that he knows
that the cage that is to contain the
four prison demons is approaching
completion, and after its steel doors
close on him his privileges will be
cnrtailed to a minimum. In fact
about all that will be left to him will
be the privilege of living, and the
chances of thatwill be reduced to the
smallest fraction when it is known
that tho men he will be compelled to
associate with are fully as desperate
as himself.
"Tho weapon he used on Guard
Blocker was made from a steul wire
taken from a bucket, and had been
sharpened like a needle. When
found, about an inch of the sharp
point had broken off, and it was fear
ed that the section had been left in
the wound, but that proved not to bo
true for it was afterwards found and
is now in the possesion of Deputy
Warden Dawson. Tliu puith gave
evidence that Ilurluy had been com
pelled to make herculean ollortB to
break tho wire after it had served
his purpose."
