The Democratic County Con
vention tomorrow will be held
at Mayor's Court Room, City
Hall. R. L ANDREW,
New Fall Carpet:
At the last moment, orders went
forth to down Col. H. C. Sanford.
Everything and anything that the
Machine could do to bringabout this
result was done.
An edict was issued from the Han
na Eing headquarters, to lieuten
ants in the various precincts, to de
feat Sanford. He had refused to
bow down and worship at the shrine
of Marcus Allpowerful Hanna. This
indication of independence sealed
his political doom.
After the battle was over, when
the smoke had lifted just a trifle,
Col. Sanford could see the true con
ditions that had brought about his
defeat. He realizes something of the
handicap that he was up against.
He does not mince words in express
ing his opinion of the methods used
against him. He is another of the
"dreamers" who believe that there
is a Court House Eing in Summit '
We are just opening
the finest line of MORRIS
CHAIRS ever brought to
Akron. Some of them
are very cheap, while
some are finer and higher
priced; but the line is
very select and the buyer

county. He expressed himself freely
in conversation with a Dkjiocrat
reporter Friday. He said:
"It was a still hunt on the part of
the Ring. I was led to believe that
I had the support of its members,
that they were working for my
nomination and that here in Akron
I wonld carry the precincts by an
overwhelming majority. Instead of
that the Ring worked to-defeat me."
"Then you do believe there is a
ring?" was asked.
''Great governor! Well if there
isn't one in this county,! don'tknow
where you will find any. I know
practically every member of this an

"The Eing opposed me because it
did not believe I was an enthusiastic
Hanna man. Well, I am not, I do
not approve of his political methods.
Recently I said that if half the stor
ies told of Senator Hanna were true
he was not the man for Senator.
This reached the ears of the Machine
and it was afraid to trust me, in ref
erence to doing as Senator Hanna
dictated. For that reason I was de
feated. The Eing did not fight me
in the open. It's work was all under
cover. Since the primaries I have
heard of the methods used against
Col. Sanford claims that in Greens
burg, the Ring agents, headed by
Wash Johnston and Squire C. C
Foster, carried matters with a high
hand. Referring to the primaries in
that precinct he said : "My friends
in Green tell me that both 'Wash'
Johnston and Squire Foster worked
against me. A week before the pri
maries I had assurances from both
that they would support me. John
ston had told me repeatedly that he
would carry the precinct for me by a
large majority. Two days previous
to the primaries he was in Akron.
On that visit he told me that there
was to be a large picnic of Green
township farmers the day of the pri
maries. I asked him if that would
not interfere with getting out the
vote. He told me that it would not.
He said they would be through with
the picnic exercises by five o'clock,
and that he and Squire Foster would
line all of them up for me when they
came home to do their chores. One
of my friends was at 'the polls that
evening. I was getting a large vote.
Johnston and Foster had received
their order from the Ring and they
were working against me. This
friend of mine was near enough to
hear Johnston say: "Sanford is get
ting a large vote. We must hustle
for Seese or he will be downed here."
The primary officials at Greens
burg were evidently red hot Hanna
ites. Col. Sanford has been in
formed that they were so zealous in
their work for Seese that they mark
ed ballots before turning them over
to voters. As they handed out the
slips they stated that the ballots
were already marked. And it was in
this way that Col. Sanford was de
feated. A few days after the primaries he
met "Wash" Johnston here in Ak
ron. The Greensburg statesman was
cordial in greeting Col. Sanford. He
regreted the fact that Green had
not given him a larger vote.
"I was one of the first to vote for
you," said Wash.
"I felt like telling him he was a
liar," said Col. Sanfor, "but I did
not believe that would be exactly
gentlemanly. Instead I reached
into my pocket and -pulled out a $10
bill and offered to bet him that
amount that he had not. 'I will bet
$5 that I did,' was the answer, but
he did not produce the money. I do
not know why Greensburg's returns
were so late, in being forwarded to
They were a day and a half late in
"The funniest feature of the whole
thing was up in Stow," said Col. San
ford. "A week before the primaries
r drove to Monroe Falls. I learned
that Rev. Frank Green had been
there ahead of me. Von know I de
feated him once for Representative.
He had been working against me. I
found that lie had fixed things there
pretty well, so I decided to pay a
visit to AVill Lodge at Silver lake.
He was not at home at the time. Two
days later I again went up to the
lake and found Lodge. He was for
mo, and with the assistance of a young
man employed on thS grounds they
had soon prepared a Hat of 18 names,
each and every one of -"which was to
vote for me. I then agreed, believ
ing it would bo perfectly legitimate,
to furnish a conveyance to take the
entire party to the polls. For this

purpose T left $2. Well the Eing
heard of this and they went to the
lake. On the day of the primary, 15
of the 18 were hauled to the polls at
my expense and voted for Seese."
Col. Sanford has received reports
from all sections of the country, tell
ing of the work of the Machine
against him. In every precinct tke
methods pursued were similar. So
effort was made to get out votes, un
less it was certain that the men were
true worshippers of "Your Uncle

Notice to fha Citizens of Akron:
In order to introduce into all homes in the city of
Akron in the shortest possible time the use of Natural
Gas, The East Ohio Gas company will give
A Discount, From the Present Fixed Rates, of
5c For Each l,G00 Cubic Feet.
Of gas used for domestic purposes during the year com
mencing July 1st, 1899, and ending July 1st, 1900.
As the company is making all house connections at
actual cost of materials and labor, it believes that this
saving in the price of gas will go largely towards the
expense of piping the houses and will give the company
the advantage of having every citizen (even the poorest)
as a consumer, thus affording to all the best and cheap
est fuel. ' To encourage the use of gas by manufacturers,
special rates will be given on application at the office.
