to Expecta-
With every condition in favor of
assembling an immense crowd on the
occasion of the opening of the Ohio
Republican campaign fine -weather,
free railroad tickets, free refresh
ments, and the best oratorical talent
in the party, the number attending
the opening today is more than dis
appointing to the Hanna manage
ment. Whilejthere is a. liberal representa
tion of the Hanna wing of the party
present, the total absence of friends
of Senator Foraker and Gov. Bush
nell is very significant to those ac
customed to seeing their faces at
campaign openings in the past.
The utter lack of enthusiasm on
the part of the crowd, coupled with
the ominous absence of theBushnell
Foraker contingent, had a distressing
effect upon the party leaders. It
was au indication of what may hap
pen in November if the absentees in
like manner remain away from the
polls-- f -....;,, i .
The first brood of Judge Nash's
chickens have come home to roost.
And there are more to follow.
The first real enthusiasm display
ed by the people was when Gov.
Roosevelt arrived at the head of the
Cleveland delegation, and was driven
down Main st. in an open carriage
with Mark Hanna.
Mark conducted himself with an
air of complacency and satisfaction
as the people cheered, which seemed
to indicate that he felt: "It's for
Chilly Reception.
The reception of Col. Dick and
Senator Hanna at the Hotel Buchtel
was chilly. Only a few people rec
ognized them and these applauded
very feebly.
Gov. Roosevelt seemed to be the
idol of the Republicans. All the
cheers were for him. All the ban
ners read "Welcome Gov. Roose
velt." No where was there a banner
welcoming Judge Nash, and no voice
was raised to cheer him. Judge
Nash was there but that's all. His
personality, like ohis candidacy,
was forgotten in the presence of
Roosevelt and Mark.

Eight Thousand People
Into Akron on Trains.
The Democrat had men stationed
at every depot. A careful count was
kept of all the trains entering the
city. Not counting the regular
trains, 93 extra coaches were brought
into Akron. Agent C. D. Honodle
says that 00 passengers can be seated
in a car and that, upon an average of
75 people were in each of the cars
coming into Akron today.

computation the 93 coaches brought

By A. C. Bachtel. President Ohio Association of
Democratic Clubs.
Democrats of Ohio:
When the history of this American Republic shall
be written, one of the resplendant stars that will shine
forth in all its glory, in those pages, will be the part
taken by the Democratic party of America since the
foundation of the Republic on this continent. Not iu all
the history of the peoples of the earth is there any record
of a political party that has, out of the necessities aris
ing from a Democratic form of government came, iuto
existence, lived a full century,and has, upon entering the
second century, demonstrate'd to the world that it is now
more alert and alive to the welfare of American citizens
than ever ih her honored history.
This being true what citizen of Ohio, or this nation,
cannot be proud of being affiliated with this grand old
party of the common people. No man who Hvps iu this
age of the world can be ignorant of the trend of affairs
in this nation since the War of Rebellion came to a close.
All students of politics canuot help but recognize the en
croachment not only upon human liberty and independ
ence of thought, but that centralization of power, iu the
hands of men, who to gratify selfish purposes, are ready
and willing to stultify even the Declaration of Indepen
dence or the Constitution of this nation, if need be, to
thwart the will of the people. Is it not time the voters
of Ohio should be aroused to the dangers that threaten
the body politic?
As every man values the privilege of American
citizenship he should study the principles that the
Democratic party promulgated in its platform recently
adopted at Zanesville, and upon which we shall wage
our battle until the ballots are cast in November.
It is not only important that every Democrat .should
stand firm in the discharge of his duty, but that every
citizen should consider whether his interest does not
lead them into the ranks of the party of the people this
year. The result in Ohio this fall will indicate largely
what will be the course in National politics next year.
No Democrat in Ohio should find any cause not to sup
port our State ticket, at the head of which stands that
Prince of Democrats, Hon. John R. McLean, the man
who had the courage to stand single and alone in 1896 in
defense of the cause of the American citizens, who stood
for the Chicago platform.
Democrats of Ohio, let every man do his duty. Arise
to the importance of getting out every Democratic vote
on election day. When you have done this, the greatest
victory ever won in this state will have been achieved.
Then with the satisfaction of a work well commenced
we can take up our cause again and battle loyally
for William Jennings Bryan, the man who stands nearer
the hearts of the American people than any man that
has risen in this nation. Their confidence in him is so
absolute tbet they will surely crown him next year with
the highest honor possible for this nation to bestow
upon one of her citizens.
Let us organize clubs, to bo permanent institutions
for disseminating Democratic principles. Only by thor
ough organization can we accomplish the results that
are dear to overy true Democrat. Wo can mako the
Ohio Association of Democratic clubs the most, powerful
factor for Democratic, success ever organized iu this
State. The Democracy of Ohio expects every man to do
his duty, and never falter. It will be done.

Found In Akron Pawn Shop Brought
Here From Canton.
A short time ago the residence of
George Nauman, in South Walnut
street, was burglarized and several
rings and other property stolen, says
the Canton News-Democrat. A few
days ago Miss Ida Nauman was vis
iting friends in Akron, and she visit
ed several pawn shops and succeeded
in discovering one of her rings there.
The broker was forced to give up the
ring to the young lady, who was ac
companied by a policeman. Tho
other ring has not been found, but
the Akron officials are investigating,
and their clue as already obtained
will probably lead to the arrest of
the burglar. The local officials be
lieve that the crime was committed
by local parties and the goods were
taken to Akron and pawned for them
by other parties.
Leave Off the Coffee.
A city solicitor for a grocery in
Americus, Georgia, reports that in
calling upon a Mrs. W. F. Marsh,
found her complaining greatly about
the loss of sleep and nervousness in
the family. He suggested that per
haps the trouble was caused by cof
fee drinking, and advised that 'they
use Postum Food Coffee in its place.
A box of the new Food Coffee was
sent down to them, and at a call tho
second day Mrs. Marsh stated that
about three o'clock in the morning
she was suddenly awakened by her
husband jumping up to dress, stating
that he must get off to work. She
looked at the clock and told him it
,vas only three o'clock, and ho must
have made a mistake. He said he
felt there was certainly something
wrong with the clock, for he had
lept his usual time, was perfectly
refreshed and had his night's rest
out. The good sound sleep contin
ued night after night after leaving
off the coffee and using in its place
the Postum Cereal ooa (Jollee.
The solicitor further says: '! told
this experience of Mr. and Mrs.
Marsh to Mr. If. F. Davenport, and
after the first night's trial ho told me
lie had never slept better in years.
Mrs. Davenport was in the store this
afternoon, pronouncing it wonderful.
"Some of the doctors here are
strong advocates of Postum Food
Cofiee. One lady, Mrs. W. 11. How
ard, buys it by tho dollar's wor.li,
and is getting all her guests and ac
nuaintances to use it. Tho president
of one of our banks ues Postum
Cereal Food Coffee to the exclusion
of all other beverages. It meets
with the approval ol some of our
best citizens." T. W. Callaway, of

I Notice to the Citizens of Akron:
: In order to introduce into all homes in the city of
I 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 1,000 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.
