"Haxka's bossism and money are
ruining the Kepublican party," says
ex-Representative E. Conn, candi
date for re-nomination on the Repub
lican ticket.. The doctor might have
emphasized his statement ana np
proached nearer to the truth had he
used' the past tense, and said that
Hanna's bossism and money "has
ruined" the Kepublican party.
"Frank Mveks of Mogadore is
older than I, and if he is a candidate
for the Legislature I shall not stand
in his way," says the Hon. Eli Conn.
What a prodigal waste of the milk of
human kindness, is this! Age pay
ing phantom courtesy to age. But
even though the brotherly love of
Prank and Eli surpassed that of
David and Jonathan in the quali
ties of sincerity, tenderness and
endurance, it would be unavailing.
The spectre of opposition that haunts
the ambitions of Mogadore's venera
ble statesman is not the candidacy
of his good friend and former col
league, Conn. It is the certain
knowledge that he is not to be the
Machine favorite for Representative
that makes Mr. Myers' canvass for
the nomination a hopeless and per
functory task.
ALL HAIL THE CENSOR.
Every time Senator Alexander
talks for publication" on matters
political, Probate Judge Anderson
makes it his business, secretly, of
course, to have the Senator repudiate
his remarks.
iast Friday the Democrat pub
lished an interview -with Senator
Alexander and the ink was scarcely
dry upon the paper before Judge
Anderson sent word to the Beacon
office to hare Senator Alexander
repudiate the statements accredited
to him. Whether the Beacon obeyed
orders or not is not known, but if it
did it evidently failed to find the
Senator in a "repudiating" mood.
It would seem that going into
this censorship business is one enter
prise from which oven His Imperial
Highness,. Judge Anderson, would
shrink. Everybody admits that the
Judge is a very subtle man, and none
will deny that for three years he has
been absolute monarch of the City of
Akron through his willing proxies on
the Board of City Commissioners,
but that as one of his royal preroga
tives he should assert the right to
act as censor of the political opinions
of the independent Hon. J. Park
Alexanders almost too amazing for
belief.
But let us submit to the powers
that be.
Henceforth when the Democrat is
so fortunate as to have interviews
to publish with Senator Alexander or
any other Republican citizen it will
be careful to submit advance proofs
of the same to Judge Anderson,
king, censor, politician, and supreme
arbiter of what local Republicans
may think or say.
This timely precaution will spare
the King the petty annoyance of
commanding his indiscreet subjects
to repudiate their opinions, and thus
permit his royal highess to give more
attention to the weightier affairs of
state.
ACCEPTED ALTGELD'S INVITATION.
Uarriisoti Then Wanted Bryan to Refuse.
Ilarriou Asked to Speak.
Chicago, July 17. John P. Altgeld
received a message from William J.
Bryan, iu which Mr. Bryan said he will
speak at the "Chicago platform niass
meeting," which will be held at the Au
ditorium on July 20, the date of the
meeting iu Chicago of the Democratic
national committee. According to The
Tribune, the supporters of Mayor Har
rison had strongly hoped Mr. Bryan
would refuse Mr. Altgeld's invitation
and even wrote to Mr. Bryan, setting
forth reasons from the viewpoint of the
Harrison sido why Mr. Bryan should
not speak at the meeting.
Mayor Harrison was invited to de
liver au address of welcome. He is in
vited as the mayor of Chicago and not
as a Democrat. "Mr. Harrison is mayor
of our city," said Mr. Altgeld, "and it
is only proper that we should invite him
to welcome the visiting Democrats."

TRIPS
RETURNS
After Sixty Years
To Akron, the Home of
His Boyhood.
Mr. G. G. Gollmar Was
an Eye Witness
Of Garfield's Famous Towpath
Scrap."
Corrects a
False Impression
cerning it.
Con-
Akron lias changed considerably
since 1830 the year in which Mr. G.
G. Gollmar, then a young man of 20,
left Akron and went to the great
northwest to make his fortune.
Mr. Gollmar located at Baraboo,
Wis., and prospered. Yesterday, at
the age of 7(i, he returned to Akron
with his venerable wife his first
visit to his boyhood's home after a
lapse of more than half a century.
"The only landmarks I can recog
nize," said he to the Democrat to
day, "are the old Stone mill and the
canal. In 1839 the two villages then
known as Upper and Lower Akron
were separated by a dense forest.
Where the forest then was is now tho
business oiiarter of the city. You
have erected a court house since I
left, and I am told your people have
for many years considered it old
fashioned and want to get rid of it.
It makes a man feel pretty old when
he outlives a public building, such as
this."
There was a time when Mr. "Goll
mar worked on the Ohio canal as a
driver. He remembers James A.
Garfield well. The martyred Presi
dent wf driving at the same time as
Mr. Gollmar. He was popularly
known as "Jimmy" Garfield.
"One thing that amused me very
much during Garfield's campaign
for the presidency was the story his
enthusiastic Ohio friends circulated
about one of the chief incidents in
Garfield's life on the towpath. It
was to the etrect that Garfield had
given a severe thrashing to a fellow
driver who had offered him some in
dignity. After a lapse of so many
years the story was made to serve a
very useful and romantic purpose,
but it was not historically correct. I
know this because I came as near
being an eye witness to the affair as
anybody could be. I'll tell you the
story if you'll listen :
"It was getting well along toward
evening when the driver for an up
bound boat, who had just passed Gar
field and a fellow driver quarreling
somewhere between locks 14 and 18
over some trivial affair, hailed me
with the words: 'I guess Jimmy
and will have a fight.' I can't
recall the name of Garfield's oppon
ent. When I got down there the
boys were at it. Garfield had been
down and was just getting up. He
had had 'enough,' and in those days
when the under man yelled 'enough'
it had to be respected by his antag
onist or bystanders had a right to
interfere. . In after years when the
campaign orators wanted to give a
clever touch to the story in order to
emphasize one of Garfield's sterling
characteristics, and he had them a
plenty, they used to tell how Jimmy
walked seven miles to whip that
driver, but they forgot, to add
that tho driver made him
holler "enough." I never challenged
the story because I was somethingof
an admirer of Garfield myself, if I
am a rock-ribbed Democrat."
Mr. and Mrs. Gollmar will remain
in Akron for several days visiting

Brower of tho civil service commission
Ixwrd, which had been conducting a
hearing at Concord, J. H., of charges
against Senator Galhnger, said hero:
" The commission was grossly deceived

The little god of love turns away from a
sictly, sallow, nervous, head-achey, back
achey, lifeless woman. Every woman
should have the beauty, vivacity, and vieor
ol pertect liealta. Tne
bright glow of health,
bright eyes, clear skin,
red lips are more attrac
tive than any mere reg
ularity of feature. A
woman can't change the
shape of her features
but any woman may
have the beauty of
health No healthy
woman can be ugly. No sickly woman
can be beautiful.
Regularity of the functions of the distinct
ly feminine organism is the first esccntial to
womanly happiness, comfort and beauty
