VOLUME EIGHT. NUMBER 77 AKRON, OHIO, WEDNESDAY EYENING, .1ULY 19. 1899. PRICE ONE CENT AKRON DAILY DEMOCR AT. HYPOCRITE. If Stories Are True Says Senator Alexander of Aaron Teeple. Article Printed In Demo crat Was True. Did Not Deny That Correct. It Was Had No Thought of Charging a Falsehood. "A. very fair report of our conver sation," said Senator J. Park Alex ander Tuesday evening in comment ing on the interview-published in the Democrat last Friday. The article referred to was that in which the Senator gave a few details of the contemptible inctjiods resorted to by his political enemies to bring about his defeat at Painesville and Columbus. The old adage, "It's the truth that hurts," is very much in evidence at the present time. Senator Alexan der did not spare certain men, here tofore his professed friends, in mak ing his statement lo f he. Democrat. He did not forget that Aaron Teeple had '"deliberately voted" against his nomination after making him a pledge of his support. This reference brought forth a vi cious letter from Mr. Teeple, which waspublished in the Beacon-Journal at the request of Judge Anderson and other Hanna machine politicians. Tuesday Senator Alexander made re ply to Mr. Teeple in the vigorous style characteristic of him. Hislet ter follows: "I regret that Mr. Teeple has en tered the 'field of billingsgate,' and that he confessds to so much ill-will. Tt seems he has had it in for me ever since I didn't support him for an of fice. I have been to no Democratic or any other paper to air my feel ings. Mr. Marvin of the Democrat, called at my home last Friday and showed me a great display head in LN the Democrat and anarticle follow ing which he said was a Columbus dispatch to the Plain Dealer and asked ine what I had to say about it. 1 said in reply that he should say there was not a word of truth in it from top to bottom, and that I felt it as -an outrage to print such slush in a newspaper and then call upon the parties and ask them what they I "had to say in answer to it. ." "Further questions were asked by Mr. Marvin, to all of .which I made answer that I did not care to be in terviewed, ASV REQUESTED HIM TO MAKE NO REl'ORT OF OUR TALK save the full denial as above stated. I have not seen an issue of the paper except the one in Mr. Marvin's hands for weeks and do not know what he published. "If this action of mine in fairly seeking to keep out of publication is in accord with what Mr. Teeple says, then I am no judge of misrep resentation. Mr. Teeple bigned a re quest asking me to become a candi date with a pledge of his support this was done voluntarily and with out a single condition. This was on the 6th day of June and'Mr. Teeple saw me or passed my house daily for the 17 days intervening before the convention and yet no word of a change of mind or of the ill-will he now plainly exhibits. Thirty-five of like written pledges were sacred be tween honorable men at the assem bling of the convention. And it is a sad comment upon American civili zation and American politics that so many like pledges were broken. Two delegates to the convention reported to me that Mr. Teeple voted against me. Is.it strange with ,the exhibi- JBM lff W THE "WEATHER: Fair tonight Increasing cloudiness Thursday Continued low temperature. tion of ill-will he seems to have smothered for the past two years, that I believed these gentlemen? As to my coming homo from Painesville, alluded to by Mr. Teeple, it is only additional evidence of his willing ness to patch up his conscience by trying to find fault with me. I wasn't a delegate. I had agreed not to be a candidate if I failed of having a ma jority of the Summit county delegation.- T did not want to miss the afternoon trains out- of Cleveland, thus keeping me out until 10 p.m. Then I may have had something of a desire to get away from such de plorable facts and the living exhibi tion of the same. Do you wonder at it. Mr. Teeple? "Respectfully, etc., "J. Park Alexander.'' It will be noticed in reading the above, that Senator Alexander makes no denial, either directly or by im plication, of the statements credited to him by the Democrat in Friday's paper. He does, however, take oc casion to make the same charges against Mr. Teeple that he did last week, viz, that of breaking his sol emn pledge to do all he could to bring about the nomination of Mr. Alexander for state senator. The Beacon, without any authority or warrant, draws the remarkable and ridiculously false conclusion that Senator Alexander lias denied the report of his remarks made to a Democrat reporter one week ago. Just how the Senator could do this before seeing an issue of the paper containing the same is not explained by the Beacon. A- Democrat reporter Tuesday evening took occasion to call Senator Alexander's attention to the article printed in Friday's issue of this nanef. It called forth the remark quoted at, the beginning. In addition he mi id: "At the time of the conver sation 1 did not understand that I was talking for publication. 1 .be lieved that the reporter had called for the purpose of showing me the clipping from the Plain Dealer." "It was not my intention, in my let ter in reply to Mr. Teeple, to accuse the Democrat or Ihe reporter who called on me of any falsehood. The article in Friday's Democrat is a true report of my talk with the re porter, in all essential details. That portion, referring to Mr. Teeple, is quoted substantially correct." Senator Alexander Tuesday after noon had this to say as to Mr. Teeple's action at Painesvillo: "This morning, while down town I met a gentleman, a friend, who told me that he knew Mr. Teeple voted against me at Painesville. I have the word of three delegates to this effect. H it is true, Mr. Teeple is an unmitigated hyprocrite. I know that 11 of the delegates pledged to my support acted the traitor at Paines ville." NOTHING Heard by Parents From Their Soldier Son Until He Had Sailed For the Philippines Three Letters. On the- 9th of March Charles Ham bly, son of Mr. "and Mrs. William Hambly, of 110 Long st., enlisted at the local recruiting office into the regular armyt and on the morning of the 10th left for Cleveland to be as signed to a post. Shortly after going to Cleveland he started for the Philippines. His parents heard nothing from him un til Monday, when three letters ar rived in the mail. They had been long delayed in the transmission. The letters had been written from places at which the ship had stopped while on the way to the Philippines. Mr. Hambly told his parents that he was well and jolly, and liked the countries he had visited very much. The letters were written in the latter part of March. By this time the young man has reached Manila, and his parents are expecting another letter soon. Mr. Hambley is with the 13th in fantry. Annual Statement. The eighth annual statement of the Win. H.

AT THE FAIR. Big Crowd Present. People Flocked to Exhibi tion Grounds. Everybody Enjoyed the Novel Sight. Liberal Patronage of Midway Attractions. Show Is Now la Notes. Full Blast With its magnetic influences of spontaneous gayety and irrepressible merriment, with its endless round of jolly amusements, the dazzling lights from the booths and bazaars, the happy faces and merry glee of count less children, the soft, mellow colors of the women's summer gowns, the grace and loveliness of Akron's wealth and fashion, the soft and swelling notes of the orchestras, and thousand and one pictures presented by the throng at the Elks' fair Tues day night caused the casual observer to ponder for a moment in wonder ment whether he wasn't realizing the fairy's dream of paradisiacal exist ence. It is carefully estimated that 12,000 people visited the fair Tuesday even ing. All the attractions were at their best, and every show on the grounds was in full operation. Achilla's Act. First of all, perhaps, .should be mentioned Achille Philiou's acton tho spiral tower on the midway, how balanced on a large "wooden ball, he rolled himself up a winding path to the top of tho high tower and de scended amid a shower of Are works that for iridiscent display almost challenge description. The feat was wonderful and performed with a suc cess indicative of superb skill in the artist. He was vigorously applauded by the large crowd. The refulgence of the pyrotechnic display was an ecs tatic inspiration to all who witnessed it. Mr. Philion's act will be a great favorite with the thousands who visit the fair. Streets oi India. The Streets of India were very popular Tuesday evening, with their elephants, camels, donkeys, magic ians, acrobats, Arabs, Hindoos and fakirs. Hassan Ben Ali's troupe of Arab ian acrobats do some of the best tumbling acts ever exhibited to the public. The concluding feature of each performance is indeed a great climax. It is a human pyramid, whose only support is Hassan Ben Ali. He holds his entire troupe and the aggregate weight is almost two tons.. Prince Ishmael, the Hindoo magi cian, performs some very clever tricks, which are a source of great entertainment to the visitors. Ride On the Elephant. Many visitors to the Streets of India enjoy a ride on the backs of the elephants iiud camels. In riding they not only enjoy themselves but also furnish lots of amusement to tho crowd, especially those who ride the camels. Venetian Gondola. Just outside the midway is located the Venetian Gondola, which is one of the gayest and enjoyable features of amusement on the ground. The Gondola was imported from Eng land, and Is under the management of Fred Lewis. While the Gondola is much like a merry-go-round, it is also quite different. The car riage seats are whirled around same as those of tho merry-go-round, but run on wheels over a circuitous course which is up and down, up and down. Those who have ridden on the Gondola pronounce it great sport and it is being well patronized. The 'merry device is lighted bril liantly by electricity produced by its own dynamo. A large steam engine furnishes- the power to operate the Gondola. So inside the circuit of seats there is a small elec tric power house, boiler room and engine room. The midway was well patronized Tuesday night, and its. amusements are becoming more interesting with each performance. The German village was crowded with people during the entire evening. The Tyrolean singers with their jolly songs continue to delight the crowd and the refreshment, are becom ing famous. About 10 o'clock the tire works display began. It was continued for about an hour and was one of the finest ever witnesbed in Akron. Tt is expected by the Elks, exhib itors and show people that the at tendance tin's evening will be the largest, of the week. Clevelanders Coming. A large contingent of Clevelanders are expected tomorrow afternoon, and they will remain over for the evening performance on the Midway. Cleveland has a street fair in con templation, and the visitors will un doubtedly make careful note of the manner in which affairs of this kind are conducted in large cities. New Effects. Achile Philion introduced some new effects in his fire works display last evening. The A. L. Due Co. of Cincinnati, have lately introduced a new effect on an illuminating piece, the lighting power of which equals the candle power of two arc lights. Mr. Philion used several of these last night with telling effect. Admitted the Children. Col. Gaskill endeared himself to the children yesterday afternoon. When the hour arrived for the per- formance on the Streets of India three or four hundred children ncre outside gazing hun- gerly at the entrance. Tha warm hearted colonel gave orders to let the children in and they pourod in through the entrance, a stream of joyous, happy, shouting humanity. The acts of the Arabs drew forth theirheartyapplau.se and Ishmael, the Hindoo magician, was also liber ally rewarded. Col. Gaskill's name will live in the memory of the youngsters as, "d- guy dat let de kids in free," as one urchin express ed it. Riding Parties'. Tim elephant and camel riding craze has struck the vibitors to the Streets of India. A number of rid ing parties were out last night, and arrangements arc being made in ad vance by contemplated parties to secure the animals for certain hours. Largest Wardrobe. Bebe, the golden haired dancer in the Congress of National Dancing Girls, boasts of the largest wardrobe carried by any actress on the road. She is the proud and happy possessor of 62 costumes, requiring 10 big the atrical trunks to transport them. Her dance is one of the most inter esting of any on the Midway, being full of merit and introducing some startling surprises. Camels. The riding camels on the Streets of India answer to the names of "Holy Moses" and "Lilian Russell," while the elephants are known as "Jess" and "Babe." Big Crowd Today. The big show started out with its usual vigor this afternoon, and large crowds are in attendance. Delega tions of Elks from Ravenna and Massillon are present, and delega tions from other places are expected Thursday. Notes. A number of events that are of in terest to Cleveland people have suc ceeded in gaining the sanction of the Central Passenger association for a reduced fare, says the Leader. The first is the Elks' fair at Akron on Friday, for which the Cleveland Terminal & Valley will run a special train down, tho rate being one fare for the round trip. The war exhibition produced by electricity in the Elks' midway, was the center of attraction in that tho roughfare of nations last night. The battle productions are wonders. A genuine Spanish bull fight is also produced. Burglars at Work. Frank C. Lee of Wadsworth, in forms Chief of Police H. H. Harrison that his house was robbed Monday night. Among tho missing articles was a ladies gold watch. The new orchestra at Randolph is there and is deserving of nice crowds. Everybody should hear it. The management wants all to be come acquainted with it and on Thursday will sell round trip tickets to tno park for 15 cents with free ad mission to the dance floor to holder of ticket and will put on a iree mat inee in.the afternoon at the theater for all not wishing-to dance. Take' your children, neighbors and friends an'd spend the day at the park. For fine plumbing call on C. M. uoerun lor prices. ACTION Taken by the Elks Concerning the Midway Attractions. The W.: C. T. U. Com mittee's Request. Objectionable Features Will be Suppressed. Nothing But Chaste Authorized. Attractions When the executive committee of the Elks street fair booked the Mid way it was assured by Manager Gas kill that the exhibitions would be clean and creditable; that there would be but one muscle dance, bet ter known as the couchee-couchee. Mayor Young visited the Dayton street fair on the closing day, when there was only a small crowd pres ent, and was only able to see the Japanese and American exhibitions. The fair was given under the auspi ces of the Chamber of Commerce and the Commercial club. Mayor Young talked with the executive committee and some of the prominent citizens, including the mayor of the city, and was assured that the shows given by Mr. Gabkill were very satisfactory. He visited Dayton to ascertain the amount of ropm mcessary for tho shows and tho character of their im bibitions. The notico that considerable com plaint was niado of (hebhowat Co lumbub in reference to some of the attractions on the Midway was im mediately telegraphed to Mr. Gas kill that he would not he permitted to bring duSe.AjbjectiouableJshows to Akron; Mr. Gaskill replied that he was held responsible for all the ob jectionable shows, but the fact was that he had nothing to do with their management, as llicy were side at tractions. Tuesday night, the executive com mittee visited all tho shows on the midway. A meeting was held this morning at which it'was decided that all exhibition of muscle, or couchee-couchee dancing, must be stopped, with the exception of one show, that show to be composed of Oriental people, and to be exhibited to both sexes who desire to attend. There will be no shows for men only and back room shows will not be permitted. The Executive committee, as well as members of the lodge, pride them selves in the fact that they have brought together one of the best en tertainments that could be seen at a nominal fee. They propose to con duct it in a manner that will give no offense to any one. They realize,however,that an exhi bition or entertainment of this kind must be somewhat general or popu lar, as it is but natural that amuse ments should be furnished to please all the people. They expect that every man, woman and child in Ak ron will see the, show by the end of the week. A committee of ladies from the W. C.T.U., accompanied by a sub-committee of men, called upon Mayor Young at the city hall this morning. Their visit resulted in a meeting of the Elks' Fair Executive committee being called, and action taken as above. The W.C.T.TJ. committee is sued the following statement: To the Citizens of Akron : A committee consisting of Dr. Katherine Kurt, Mrs. Emil Ganune ter and Mrs. Alex Adamson, was ap pointed by the W. C. T. U. at its meeting on Monday afternoon to in vestigate tho character of the enter tainment now being given at the Elks Street Fair. A committee of three gentlemen was also appointed to assist, consisting of the Rev. A. B. Church, Mr. S. H. Mantle and Mr. D. W. Gammel. The men visited the fair and have submitted a writ ten report to the committee of the W. C. T. U. From this report the committee feels warranted in sub mitting to its members and the citi zens of Akron buch portions as may appear in print: "The undersigned, your committee, appointed to visit tho Elks' Fair, be ing held in Akron this week, beg leave to submit the following report of findings: Up to tho present time in the commercial and industrial, and many of tin- entertainment features of the Fair, we saw much to interest, instruct and legitimately amuse. In the German village we found City Ordinance 353 A. and B, referring to the employment of ladies as -waiters in' places where beer, wines, etc.. are being sold, openly violated. In the midway we tounu some leaiurus oi merit, aim others of the modern fakir order, designed to beguile and relieve peo- pie of their money. At the 'Oriental Theatre,' undor the supervision of Abdul-Nov, -we found 3 female char acters who were bold, coarse, and lascivious in their conduct and con versation, about the tent entrance. The theatrical performance 'for men only' was simply forms of the couchee-couchee dance. These so- called dancers were in the main most disgustingly licentious and bawdy. From the pro fane language of the spectators the performance had the desired effect. Ami on tne west sine ot the mall In the tent advertising animals and French dancing girls, the spec tators were informed that if tiiey would pay an additional fee of 25 cents they would be treated to a spectacle behind the scenes even more disgusting than that of the reg ular performance. The presence of two policemen presumably prevented this performance from being little more than an open fraud of money getting. Both performances and their characters are an offeiibe to common decency; an outrage to so cial virtue and morality, and corrup tive of personal purity. No civilized community can afford to tolerate their presence." The women of Akron have a right to know what manner of temptation their sons and husbands meet in at tending these entertainments. From such evidence as is here furnished, it is plainly to be seen "the Orien tals" coming to entertain people with their Midway are not educated in the moral sense of a Christian com munity. The W. C. T. l and many others, advocate one standard of morals, for men and women. Thev believe that a scene or any entertain ment unfit for woman's eye and ear, is bad for men. The committee truts that the local Elks will close these objectionable features of the fair at once. Committee. LAST LINKS.

McBride, of 580 West Market street, were accidentally poisoned by an over-dose of chloro form Tuesday afternoon. The children had been suffering with whooping cough for several days. The nurse in giving them their medicine failed to shake up the con tents of the bottle. The chloroform, which was one of the ingredients, was on top. A teaspoonful of the powerful drug was given each child. In afewmifiutesthey were taken for a drive. Both fell asleep but nothing was suspected. When they reached home they were placed in bed. Some time later an aunt discovered their condition. Three-physicians were called. After several hours' work the children were revived.
