By order of
L. H. AMER, Chairman.
Tell your out-of-town frieuds to
visit Akron during the week of the
Fr.ee Street Fair and Carnival if you
want them to be well entertained.
Chaiioian Dick is charged with
being responsible for about 75 per
cent, of the letters imploring Mayor
Jones of Toledo to become an inde
pendent candidate for Governor. It
maybe difficult to convince Jones of
this until after election.
There'll be plenty of time fo talk
politics after Akron's Free Street
Fair and Carnival has been held.
Just now the people ought to give
most of their attention to helping
Akron's public spirited merchants
and manufacturers make this event
a big success.
Whes Akron's public-spirited
manufacturers and merchants under
take a public enterprise they make
things hum. So great an event has
their Free Street Fair and Carnival
been planned to be, that already it
is the chief topic of interest to Akron
According to the Chicago Chron
icle, Senator H-iuna want3 to suc
ceed Presidont McKinley in 1901, in
the event that that official is given a
second term next year. Suppose
Hanna should succeed McKinley
how many people would feel that
there had been a change?.
An idea of the magnitude of Ak
ron's approaching Free Street Fair
and Carnival was conveyed to the
people in the preliminary address is
sued by Chairman P. E. Werner
yesterday. The entertainment to bo
provided the people each day of th e
fair, absolutely free to everyone, is
being planned upon a scale never yet
attempted in Akron. The city at
large will reap prodigious benefits
from this great enterprise. It is the
duty of every citizen to co-operate in
the fullest measure possible with the
public-spirited men who have the
management of the Fair in charge.
For a scapegoat, Gen. Alger seems
to stand very well in the estimation
of his Michigan neighbors. His
home-coming yesterday was the
signal for a triumph such as Ceaser
might have been proud of.
Gov. Pingree was there, shouting
Algerian praises, and claiming that
"he (Alger) contributed more than
any one else to bring the war to a
successful end." Touching Alger's
grievances against the Administra
tion, Pingree said:
"The people of Michigan will re
member the indignity to which the
state has been subjected. In time
they will come to know who is re
sponsible for it. I think they al
ready see that politics makes cow
ards of some men, in both high and
low position. They will in time de
spise the official, no matter how ex
alted his station, who, to save him
self, bows and truckles to newspa
pers., or money, or influence.or power
in any form. They will turn away
from every official representative of
Michigan at Washington who has
stood by without protest and per
mitted a citizen of the state to be as
grossly abused and misrepresented
as you have been. They will not
forget the cowardly conduct of some
of the newspapers and public men of
the state who have, by their silence,
practically joined in the attacks
upon you." The sense of justice r.nd
fair play of our people will not sup
port such methods. They will be
apparent when the people of our
state express themselves at the
polls." pfc
Pingree might as well have men
tioned names telling what will be
done to certain high officials at
Washington when Michigan people
get a chance to "express themselves
at the polls."
Mo Staled at the Reception lit Detroit.
Welcoming; Committee Met tlie Returning-
Ex-Secretary at Toledo.
Detroit, Aug. 3. A magnificent
welcome was extended the late secre
tary of war, General Kussell A. Alger
by the people of his own city and state.
From the time when tho welcoming
committee crowded into his prh ate car
upon its arrival at Toledo until the gen
eial ceased grasping outstretched hands
the scene was almost a constant and
spontaneous ovation. Smiles and tears
repeatedly struggled for the mastery
over the secretary's bronzed counte
nance as ho gjzed into the faces of the
multitude who loudly and convincingly
insisted that "Alger's all right."
Darkness, fell during the speeches
from the reviewing stand in trout of
the city hall, giving opportunity for
throwing a searchlightjtipon the feat
ures of General Alcer,"drawn in cravon
on a canvas lt feet square, hung from
the city hall front and surrounded by
patriotic decorations. A great crush at
tho indoor reception was the final feat
ure. -
The special train to Toledo consisted
of eight coaches. It carried -100 mem
bers of the reception committee. Ban
ners stretched aloug the sides of the
cars stated that "Michigan welcomed
her honored son, General Alger."
Headed by about 300 bicyclists, over
1.000 marchers escorted General Alger
from the Michigan Central station by
a circuitous route leading past the gen
eral's home to tho reviewing stand.
Militia and veterans of the Civil war,
including Fairbanks post, G. A. R., of
which the general is a member, a com
pany of opanish war veterans and
scores of marchers in secret society uni
form filed past. Fairbanks post carried
two great banners, stretching half
across the street, "which declared "there
is only one Alger."
Whon General Alger appeared on tho
reviewing stand there was a roar of ap
plause from the dense crowd "which
blocked all traffic across the Campus
Martius. The ex-secretary reviewed
tho parade and returned the salutations
of many marchers, especially thoso of
veteran ij. a. k. comrades.
Mayor Maybury made a wolcoming
Governor Pingree, in his speech, read
in behalf of the state, made some
poiuted references to incidents leading
to Alger's homo coming, and fired some
characteristic shots at the newspapers
aud politicions which, he asserted, were
largely responsible. Tho governor said
that Alger's best service for his country
was in his efficient management ot the
war department.
General Alger in a speech defended
his course and at one pomt said:
"And now, my fellow citizens, I come
without a grievance. During that strug
gle, aud wliile tliat great work was
upon me. I can truthfully sav that J
had from the president all the" supo-t
that ho could give."

showing that Guantanamo was capitu

The other officers advanced a similar

Sick Women Advised to Seek
Advice of Mrs. Pinkham.
"I had inflammation and falling
of the womb, and inflammation of
ovaries, and was in great pain. I took
medicine prescribed by a physician,
but it did me no good. At last I heard
of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and after using it faithfully I
am.thankful to say Iama-cveH women.
I would advise all suffering women to
seek advice of Mrs. Pinkham.' Mbs.
G. II. CiiAPrELL, Gbast Park, III.
" For several years my health was
miserable. I suffered the most dread
ful pains, and was almost xra the verge
of insanity. I consulted one of the
best physicians in New York, and ho
pronounced my disease a fibroid tumor,
advising an operation without delay,
saying that it was my only chance for
life. Other doctors prescribed strong
and violent medicine,, and one said I
was incurable, another told me my
only salvation was galvanic batteries,
which I tried, but nothing relieved me.
One day a friend called and begged mo
to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. I began its use and took
several bottles. From the very first
bottle there was a wonderful change
for the better. The tumor has disap
peared entirely and my old spirits have
returned. I heartily recommend your
medicine to all suffering women."

Claimed That He Does
Not Want to Race.
Ford Lilly Poisoned In Kent
Road Race.
Ace Lost to the Maid Sporting
It looks as though Jake Dech was
not sincere when he issued a chal
lenge to race any man in Summit
county a distance of 100 miles.
James Rankin, Jr., immediately
posted $30 to make a match. Deeh
was notified that the money was up,
but he has failed to come forward
and cover the same. The money is
in the hands of the Union Cycle
company, where it will remain for
several days. If it is not covered
during that time Rankin and his
friends will believe that Dech is
afraid to meet him.
Racer Poisoned.
Ford Lilly, who was thrown from
his wheel during the Kent road race,
is suffering from the effects of his
fall. He plunged into a clump of
bushes on the road side and was
poisoned. His face and lips are
badly swollen and broken out as a
The Maid Won.
Ace, the heavily backed favorite
for the 2:10 pace at Columbus failed
to deliver the goods at Columbus
Wednesday. First money went to
the Maid, who captured the fifth,
sixth and seventh heats, pacing to si
record of 2:05. Searchlight won
the 2:04 pace in straight heats. He
made a new record of 2:03K.
Lett a Bad Taste.
It lias been a long time since any
thing has occurred at the Glenville
track that left such a lasting impres
sion on the minds of a vist number
of Clcvelanders as did what has be
come known as the "Fanny Dillard
deal" last Thursday, says the Plain
Dealer. Nor was the lasting'impres
sion on the minds all that was left
by the deal, rt also left a bad taste
in tho mouths, a bad "crimp" in the
rolls, and something that sticks
hard in the "crops" of many

a man who thought he had one of
the best of good things.
It will be hard to convince anyone
who "went against" the deal that it
was not the rankest concocted in a
long time. It was announced in this
paper the morning following the race
that there was something decidedly
wrong, but it has required some time
for the extent of the wrong to leak
It now seems that many a smart
bettor fell in on the deal, and among
the fallen ones are some who will not
forget thoso who let them down in a
In the first place Fanny Dillard
looked good enough to the knowing
ones to dispose of her field easily.
When she was sent away lengths be
hind and on a break in the first heat
she soon showed what she could do
with the bunch by closing up the
gap with ease. Then she went out
and won a heat without the least
All this made it look exceedingly
good, but there are other things that
made it look better.
The deal was a "double cross" to
no small extent. Those who were
"on" took good care that Dillard
was well touted then they played
the field. After the excellent exhi
bitions in the first two heats it look
ed a little strange that even money
could be had on Fanny Dillard in the
books. Under ordinary circum
stances the accustomed liberality of
the book-makers would have put her
at about 3 to 10. But perhaps they
knew something.
That somebody "got to'' somebody
there is no doubt. It has been
stated that it cost just $7,000 to fix
the race, aud that the money went
three ways. A well known man
about town is given the credit (?) of
having engineered the deal, so that
explains one way in which the
money went. The other parties to
the deal must be imagined.
There is no friendship in horse
racing and there were several ex
tremely "good fellows" who took
particular pains to see tnat their
friends were tossed.
But the deal was not a clever one.
It leaked out too soon. Plenty of
evidence can be found if any one
cares to follow up the case, but the
chances are that the numerous
threats to cauFe investigation will
soon be forgotten.

Washington, Auir. 3. Advices re
ceived by Surgeon General Wymau
from Hampton, Va., showed that the
only change in the yellow fever situa
tion was the addition of four suspected
cases to tUose already in existence.
These wero sent from the camp to tho
hospital. This information and the ad
ditional statement that there had not
been a death since 7 o'clock Tuesday
night, and that everything with refer
ence to the disease is more than favora
ble, was received from Governor P. T.
Woodfin of the Soldiers' home. He also
wired tliat he was quite sure the pesti
lence will be stamped out. From Dr.
White, who has general charge of af
fairs at Hampton, buc who remained
away Iroui tlw institution, word came
that the situation was unchanged.
(iovernor Woodlin prepared a list of
all members of tho home who had been
f urloughed &iuco July 22, at the same
time giving their destination. This
will bo telegraphed to Surgeon General
Wyman aud will be spread broadcast
through tho press, thus enabling mu
nicipalities where the inmates may
now bo to detain them for a reasonable
length of time. Dr. Wymau sent dis
patches to the health commissioner of
Baltimore and the nresident of the
board of health of Richmond asking
them what measures are being taken
regarding refugees from the home at
Hampton or the adjoining town of
Photons. The doctor thinks it is of
the utmost importauco that all such
pertous tJiould be kept under close ob
servation lor ten days following their
departure, particularly those who
stopped over one night in cither place.
Beplies have been received from both
places showing the surgeon general the
activity of the officials and their ability
to cope with tho situation.
Surgeon Farquhar, at Portsmouth, 12
miles from .Hainptou, reported finding
four colored people who had been at tho
latter place. The authorities sent them
baclr to Hampton. Dr. Wjiuau directed
Surgeon Farquhar hereafter not to send
such persons back to Hampton, but to
havo them taken to Crauey island,'
where they may be detained under ob
servation Dr. Wyman says that al
though Hampton is not infected, he
thinks it best to take charge of people
who may come from Hampton and keep
them under observation for a limited
period of time. Arrangements havo
been made to send to the home two im
mune male and two immune female
nurses and two immune physicians.
The removal of troops from Fort
Monroe and the officers and their fami
lies, it is expected, will begin today.
Dr. Wyman received a dispatch from
Surgeon Pettus, at Fort Monroe, saying
there was nothing suspicious there. A
train lett for Richmond with about 100
people. All were inspected before board
ing the train aud made to prove they
had not been exposed to infection. A
steam launch is patrolling the water
front and guards are being sworn in as
fast they can bo obtained.
A dispatch from Dr. Wasdm says a
house iuspection of tho worst portion of
Phoebus discloses nothing. The dis
patch adds:
"Suspicious caso of last (Tnesday)
night verified. No new case at the
home today (Wednesday). Ono des
perate." Dr. Wasdin said he will start today to
canvass 1,500 of the inmates, then to
disinfect the rookeries (presumably
those at Phoebus).

he would only smile and say: 'I want
to po back with my boys and fight with
them to the last.' Once an aide of Gen
eral Halo was sent to tell Col. Hawkins
to look more to his safety when on the
firing lines. '1 am all right young
man,' and into the smoke he went
"He always seemed unconcerned
about his safety, and yet I never saw a
man so solicitious about his meu. At
the midnight attack, July 31, 1898, he
showed the same pluck and energy by
getting out of a sick bed and going to
the front against the will of his physi
cians." Tho docking of the transport Senator
was" unaccompanied by the blowing of
steam whistles and the ringing of bells,
Mi impressive silence prevailed
throughout tho operation in spite of
tho fact that thousands of people
thronged tho docks to witness the laud
ing of the vessel whica had borne the
Teuth Pennsylvania regiment from tho
Philippines to a friendly shore. There
was no cheering as tho vessel made fast
to the government dock.
The dtath of Colonel Hawkins seemed
to have impressed every one in an un
usual mauner, and along the water
front flags hung at lrilfmast out of re
spect to the hero of two wars.
Later in the day a detachment of
soldiers carried tho casket coutainiug
the romains from the transport to a
waiting nearse. lieaas were Dareu and
not a few of the Pennsylvania boys
bhed tears as the coffin "was silently
placed in tho hearse to bo taken to an
undertaker's establishment. A detach
ment of 11 men and an officer escorted
the hearse through the streets.
There was no other military demon
stration, but a gnard will watch con
fctantb' beside the casket and when tho
remains arc placed ou board the cars
for the east a guard will bo detailed to
accompany it.
Colonel Hawkins' body was wrapped
in the silk regimental flag presented to
the legimcut on leaving home, shattered
aud torn by winds and rains of cam
paign and numerons battles in which he
was engaged.

Colonel Hiruett has been instructed to

is reduced to two weeks.
In case it is not sho desires tlie body

the commander will be buried with mil

when he was dying.
The Hawkins family burial grouud is

colonel's remains will be interred in the
cemetery here. A movement luts been
started here for the purpose of having
the funds for tho reception of the Tenth
ixpended for the erection of a monu

meets with general approval among tho
people here.
Sirs. Hawkins has received hundreds
of messages of condolence during the
day from friends of tlie colonel's mili

over tho state and country.
At a meeting of the Washington
county Republican esecuti ve committee,
held in the office of Owen C. Under

itarincnlous Convention Held and Smith
Earned For Governor Sharp
ltesoltltion ou Trusts.
Baltimore, Aug. 3. The Democratic
state convention, held at Ford's Opera
House here, nominated the following
ticket: For governor, John Walter
Smith of Worcester county; for attor
ney geneml.Isidoriiayncr of Baltimore;
for controller, Joshua W. Herring of
Carroll county.
Tho convention was unusually har
monious and all tho nominations were
made by acclamation, Edwin Warfield,
Mr. Smith's principal opponent, with
drawing at tlie last moment and plac
ing the successful candidate in nomina
tion. Tho platform made no reference to
the silver question, to Bryan nor to tho
Philippine situation
On trusts it said: "Wc view with
alarm the multiplication over the laud
of such gigantic industrial and com
mercial trusts, the outgrowth of Re
publican legislation as stifle competi
tion, threaten popular government, in
crease tlio cost of living and curtail the
individual rights of the people and we
favor vigorous measures by the states
and by congress to repress this great and
growing evil."
The platform further demanded non
partisan administration of the police
department of the city of Baltimore
and of the public schools in the state
and declared that the Republican party
was responsible for the numerous vio
lations o"f the law upon the part of the
negroes, because the latter behoved
they would be afforded protection and
immunity from punishment by reasou
of their votes, whieh, the platform as
serted, were cast almost solidly for the
Republican ticket.
