He Was Well Supplied n i in muimy. i Large Sum Belonged to Akron Turnverein. Board Bill Left Behind Will be Remembered. A score or more of Akrou people would give a good deal to know the whereabouts of John Gable. He is a painter by trade and has resided in this city for several years. Gable boarded on Wheeler st., and was considered perfectly straight. One week ago today he failed to re tnrn to his boarding place. This did not occasion much concern at that time. But a week has passed and nothing has been heard from him. Many people are much alarmed, not that they fear for Gable's per sonal welfare. He will not suffer from the pangs of hunger or the cold of winter. Far from it, for ho has his pockets well lined with the where-wlth-all with which to pur chase all the comforts of life. This was gained in various ways. Some of it came from acquaintances, but the larger portion of it was donated by the Akron Turners. Gable was an active member of this society. Ho contributed largely of time to id in the work of the or ganization. On various occasions he had charge of the lunch and refresh ment counter. Last Sunday when be left Turner's hail he had iu his possession $70 belonging to the soci ety and he still has it, for not one cent of the amount was turned over to the treasurer or any of the other officers. One thing that Gable for got to take with him was a $60 board bill. This was left behind, as a re minder of his having once lived in this city. Numerous friends have a vivid recollection of having loaned him various sums of money,- some small, others large. An effort has been made to get some trace of Gable but so far all clews have proved false. DEATH Claimed Peter Buehl On His Birthday. For Many Months a Sufferer From Heart Trouble Funeral.

Articles of incorporation have been prepared for the Akron Canning Company. The men interested are largely local men. .This company will build a plant in Akron provided the company can se cure an acreage that will warrant It. Much depends on the farmers them selves. j3 One of the in tares ted parties said today: "One of ,tlie greatest 'difficulties so often met in this Jkind of industry is that of securing enough acreage. It now remains with the farmer whether or not the contemplated factor will be built iu Akron. Its company is about ready with their contract, and as soon as five hundred acres are secured the factory will be built. Without this amount it would not be a paying investment."' "It will, of course, have to be taken into consideration that a factory of this kind means au expenditure of a large sum of money, and our con tract must be with responsible peo ple." "With proper cultivation, sweet corn will be much more profitable than wheat; in a favorable season, good tillable lands yield from $25 to $35 per acre. Points where canning factories are running have been of great advantage to the-farmers. "We are satisfied that after one year's experience we cannot take care of the contracts that will be of fered us. Tomatoes ana other vege tables will also be canned. "This factory will furnish employ ment to about 200 people during the canning season. The superintend ent will be a practical man who has for the past several years had charge of a large eastern factory with great success." AKRON-CANTON Road Will Be Built Next Year Company Incorporated. The cities of Akron, Canton and Massillon will be connected by an electric railroad within the next year, if present plans are carried out.

Agents instructed Not to Handie Matches Made by Any of Other Concerns. the Letter Received by an Indepen dent Company. Another Match Corporation Enters the Field. The Diamond Match company has adopted rigid methods to do away with competition. Tor many months the officers of this trust have been somewhat dis turbed by reports of the formation of rival corporations. To counteract this, the directors decided to stifle competition. The following story is from the Is. York correspondent of the Chicago Inter-Ocean. It reads : John Thuner, a match manufac turer, with offices at No. 40 Hudson street received recently a letter from the large wholesale grocery firm of Van GlahnBro?., in Brooklyn, which said: "With regret we must inform you that the Diamond Match company has informed us that if any matches but its own were handled by us it would cut us off on its goods. You can readily see that in view of the position in which we are placed It will be impossible to do any business i with you at present. Therefore your order for E.T. Brady, No. 491 Hill street, Brooklyri.has not been filled." Mr Thuner left jor Detroit yester day, and his son, who was in charge of the store, said he had instructions not to discuss the subject of the let ter. The letter has been neatly framed by Mr. Thuner, and hangs in a conspicuous place in his private office. Mr. Claggett, manager of the Dia mond Match company, said: "I think it probable that such a letter as the one referred to was sent by us to Von Glahn Bros. We do business through agencies, and we exact of our agents that they shall not handle the goods of other manu facturers. We pay the agents 10 per cent, on their sales, and give them 30 days' time. It is our object to pro tect ourselves and our agents from prico cutting." Another New Company. Mentiouwas made a few davs aeo of the incorporation of the American Match Machine Co. Still another corporation has been chartered to buck the trust. Saturday articles of incorporation were filed in Trenton, N. J., by the Seloh & Namret Match company. with an authorized capital of $200,000. AKRON District Conference of Methodist Church. Sixty Delegates Are In Attendance Matters of Interest Discussed.

Election Furnished by Mr. Hanna's Cleveland Paper. a Conservative" Estimate From Summit County. Secretary Young Thinks It's a ' Ghost Story. As the Republican Committee Did Not Give It Out. The Cleveland Plain Dealer pro ceeded to carry Ohio for Judge Nash this morning declaring that he will have about 25,000 plurality over Hon. John R. McLean. The P. D.'s estimate is based upon computations returned from all the counties. Its estimate of Summit county, for instance, is as follows: Conservative politicians of both parties, who have made a careful canvass of the situation in Summit county within the past few days esti mate that Judge Nash will have a plurality over Mr. McLean of in the neighborhood of 1,200 votes. The to tal vote last year for secretary of state was 13,879. It is exppoted to reach 15,000 this year. Kinney had a plurality last year of 1,454 over Guthrey." If the estimate in all the counties upon which the Plain Dealer's cal culations are based is as "conserva tive" as that of Summit county, Judge Nash will be the worst de feated Republican candidate who has ever run for Governor of Ohio. No Repnblican who knows anything about the Summit county situation pretends that Judge Nash will carry the county by 1,200. Chairman Stu art and Secretary Kenfleld of the Republican Executive committee say they "have never made any esti mate of the Republican vote in Sum mit county, uor has such a thing ever suggested itself to them. We have nothing whatever to base an estimate on." If the officers of the Republicans Executive Committee are not iu a position to make a conservative esti mate, who is. When Secretary E. M. Young, of the Democratic Executive Commit tee, was asked for au opinion this morning, he said: "I have read the Plain Dealer's estimate. It is absurd to claim that Judge Nash will carry Summit county by 1,200 plurality something not even Maj. McKinley nor Gov. Bushnell could do. I havo no hesi tancy about saying that Mr. Mc Lean will carry the county by more than 200. Mayor Jones will have about 2,000 votes in the county. Who are the, "conservative politicians of both parties" whom the Plain Dealer has seen for its information? It must have been Dobson who seems to be both Democrat and Republi can as occasion demands, for all tho Plain Dealer ghost stories are manu factured in the Dobson office. If the Plain Dealer's guesses from other counties are as wild as that from Summit county Judge Nash will be defeated by 50,000 plurality, SAUER KRAUT Delayed Traffic On Street Car Lines For Some Time.

A Cincinnati Correspon dent Interviewed. Tells How Thousands Lost Employment. Have Hanna's Friends Badly Frightened About Jones Vote. Mr. Orrville H. Stewart, represent ing the Cincinnati Post, has been in Akron tor the last few days collecting information with reference to the evil operation of trusts. Mr. Stewart says that he .has al ready visited twenty of the promi nent industrial cities of Ohio and finds that in all but one of them fac tories have been closed as a result of being purchased by trust. He says that in the places visited mom than 17,000 men have been thrown .ut of work by the, trusts, not including the traveling salesmen and membeis of office forces employed by the com panies absorbed by trusts. He says that he has made a similar tour of Indiana and finds even a greater proportion of men thrown out of work. Mr. Stewart found the conditions prevailing ; at Akron better than those in many other Ohio cities by reason of the fact that Akron's in dustries are more diversified than those of other cities. He said that in some of the towns which he had visited, which had only ono large factory, a. great many, workingraen .ucLor.v, . juu "..... , , wh uaa uwc-uiiHf-iHHUtt. uu - "- r !.. i. !. ...nn.f.. HAn.,iitinTnn by the closing down of the factory. He said that in his investigations at Akron he found ten companies rep resented in trusts, bnt that aside from the employes ot the Akrou Salt company and one of the Rubbrr companies, Akron workiugmen havo not been materially affected by the operation of the trusts. He found that the Akron lion company had been forced out of business chiefly because tho trust that controlled the supply of -pig iron had so raised prices upon the independent manufacturers that the finished product could be purchased from the Steel Trust at as low a price as the Akrou lion Co. could buy raw material. "Everywhere I go," said Mr. Stew art, "I find the people complaining about thb high prices that are charg ed by the trusts. Everything the people buy a.t the stores is being raised in price and there it no telling when the upward limit will be reached. The farmeis especially are discontented owing to the low prices received by them tor their products and the high prices they have to pay for what they buy, and unless I am greatly mistaken the trusts, are going to have very reactionary effect upon the Republican ticket at the Novem ber election. Hotel men are com plaining about the falling off of their custom on account of hundreds of traveling men being thrown out of woik." The local Republican campaign committee is making the bluff that a majority of the votes which Mayor Jones will tally in this campaign are coming from the Democrats. They overlook the fact that the Democratic platform -comes so near to what Mayor Jones advocates that thero is no real incentive to Democrats to bolt their ticket. It Col. Dick were satisfied that Mr. Jones would get more Democratic than Republican votes he would not be writing hys terical letters trying to persuade Mr. Jones to retire from the race, and trying to combatrhis arguments. In stead, Col. Dick would be willing to contribute several barrels to the Jones fund. As usual, Mr. Hanna's campaign managers are bluffing in theory, but In practice tney are lrignteneu naif to death. The effect of Mayor Jones' candi dacy is going to be tho defeat of the Hanna candidate for governor, and they know it. Mr. Jones has always been considered a pretty good Re publican and he is going to got hun dreds of votes upon that issue alone. BIRTHS. HUTOHINSON October 29. to Mr. and Mrs. Wm.
