A letter of inquiry has been re
ceived from Akron asking for infor
mation concerning the death of
Clarence H. McKean, who died last
Thursday at 371 South Third street,
says the Columbus Dispatch. The
letter bears the name of Mrs. F.
Flynn, 564 East Buchtel St., as the
writer, who claims to be his daugh
ter. She says- that Mr. McKean
died in Columbus last Thursday ,and
on Friday the body was taken to Ak
ron and buried without the knowl
edge of his wife and daughter.
Mr. "Wagner, who keeps the board
ing house at S71 South Third st.,
made a statement concerning the
case. She says that McKean came
to her house five weeks ago from the
St. Anthony's hospital, where he had
been for about niue weeks. He died
of quick consumption. Several men
have died at her hoube before this
time and when she found that Mc
Kean was suro to die. she talked
seriously with him and he told her
that years ago whild under the in
fluence of liquor he married a woman
and next morning when he found
what he had done he left her and
never lived with her afterward.
He traveled over the country as a
decorator, and never spoke of his
family at home."r It is known that he
carried a policy of $7,000 on his life,
but it was not made over to this
At the health office, this certificate
bears the signature of George Mc
Kean, a brother, but not of any phy
sician. Mrs. Wagner says that Mr. Mc
Kean's mother and brother were here
from Akron and took charge of the
remains shortly after his death. Mrs.
McKean talked with the physician,
whom Mrs. "Wagner believes lives on
State st., but she does not remember
Mrs. Frank Flynn, of 561 East
Buchtel ave., the writer of the letter
above referred to was seen Friday by
a Democrat reporter. She is at a
loss to know why her father was
buried without the knowledge of
herself or sister, Miss Mattie, his
"There is something behind all
this," said Mrs. Flynn. "I have all
reason to believe that my father
loved us two children. He came to
see us occasionally and invariably
brought us presents or gave us
money. Once he told me that he
had his life insured for the benefit
of my sister and myself.
"It is not impossible that we shall
have father's body disinterred that
we may have a last look at him. My
sister and I talked seriously in refer
ence to this action Sunday.
"My mother, Mrs. Alida E. Mc
Kean, lives at 839 Bowery st. My
sister, Mattie, lives with mother.
"Father and mother were divorced
about 10 years ago. Prior to that
time they lived together a few years
' in Akron. I am 24 years of age and

secret burial of my father was for no
other purpose than to keep us, his
children, from obtaining the
Clarence H. McKean was an all
around printer. For quite a number
of years he worked as pressman in a
Columbus printing establishment.
He was aged 42 years, and was well
known in Akron. He was a son of
Mrs. Mary McKean, 520 West Ex
cfiange St., and a brother of George
T. McKean, a clerk in the postotlice.
A few years prior to his death. Mr.
McKean was a decorator.
The remains of the dead man were
brought to this city Friday evening
and taken immediately to Glendale
cemetery, where burial was made.
When spoken to in reference to
the complication of affairs Friday
George T. McKean said to a reporter
for the Democrat:
"This is the first that 1 have heard
about my brother's having any life
insurance. I hope that his daugh
ters get the money. 1 will in no
manner attempt to keep them from
obtaining it. My impression, how
ever, is that my brother possessed
nothing. I paid for his funeral ex
penses, and also some back pay due
It has also been developed that
from among the wardrobe of the dead
man the vest of his every day suit is
missing. The question now arising
is: Were the insurance papers, if he
possessed any, in that vest? It will
be difficult to learn this. It is known
that a watch was in the vest. Mr.
McKean was also atone time a mem
ber of the Knights of Pythias order,
but it seems that his dues were not

No city in the State or the United
States for that matter, has attempt
ed to give a street fair on such a
scale of magnificence as that which
is to be held in Akron, September
13, 14, 15 and 1(.
Every business man iu the city is,
or should be, personally interested in
the success of the undertaking. It
means more advertising for every

other way. Akron's reputation as a
city is at stake. People from all
over the State will bo visitors here
during the four days of the'carnival.
Within the next two weeks 3,000
colored posters, picturing the various
attractions, will be distributed in a
district, making a circuit of 100 miles
in every directon from Akron. All
the people living in that section will
receive an invitation to be a gupst of
Akron during the Carnival. It is
the duty of every local citizen to
decorate his lot and buildings. A
splendid impression can be mad on
the visitors. Bunting and flags
should be liberally displayed all over
Akron. The appearance of the city
will long be remembered by the
thousands of strangers who come
here during the Carnival.
Designs of the decorations, plans
for the ornamental buildings and
illuminations, will be prepared
Monday. These will be placed on
exhibition in some of the down town
show windows Monday. The per
spective drawings will be finished in
color and from these the people will
be able to get some idea of the beauty
and splendor of the fair section dur
ing the carnival.
The Agricultural Premium exhibit
promises to be one of the features.
It will represent the products of the
soil of Summit and her sister coun
ties, illustrating the progress and in
dustry of the sturdy farmers of
All of the first-class attractions
will be on exhibition, conveniently
and safely located. No objection
able features or exhibitions will be
permitted. The principal streets of
the fair district will be kept free
from vehicles of all kfnds from 7:30
until 11 o'clock p.m., thereby giving
the people an opportunity of witness
ing the various exhibits and per
formances without being subjected
to inconvenience and accidents.
