TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31 THE PROXY SYSTEM MUST GO. Ex-City Commissioner Joseph Hugill, a respected citizen and business man of Akron, who has grown gray in the service of the Republican party, tells some start ling truths in another column of the Democbat today. He shows why it is that Akron is face to face with a tax orisis as a result of the man agement of the city's financial affairs by the Board of City Commission ers. Mr. Hugill charges that the turn ing of the Board of City Commis sioners into a political machine by Probate Judge Anderson at the ex pense and to the neglect of the city's interests is alone responsible-for the present deplorable condition of Akron's finances. No man in Akron is better quali fied than Mr. Hugill to tell the citizens of Akron the truth about the Board of City Commissioners, for we have Mr. Hugill's own testi mony for it that he was deposed from the Board because he would not be dictated to by Judge Anderson. Cumbersome and expensive as the City Commissioner tystein is to the oitizens of Akron even when men of ability and good business judgment are In charge, it becomes more then doubly so when the Board is turned into a political machine to promote the interests of a self-seoking county official. Mr. Hugill is supported by hun dreds of Akron's Republican citizens In protesting against this selfish interference by Judge Anderson in the affairs of the Board of City Com missioners. No ordinary grievance would cause these men to forget their party ties and work and vote agaiiiBt a member of their own party. When such prominent Republicans as Mr. Hugill and his friends urge Akron people to vote against Judge Anderson because he has set himself up as dictator of Akron, abusing the power that comes to him as one of the officials charged with appointing City Commissioners, it is high time that Akron's citizens also sink their partisan differences and vote to put an end to the proxy system. In no other way can the citizens obtain a rightful voice in the control of their city's affairs. "FOR POLITICAL EFFECT." The discussion concerning the financial affairs of the city was started in Council last night by Councilman Homan, the Republican member from the Third ward. He wanted to know how much the auto mobile patrol wagon was going to cost. During the discussion it was shown that the deficit for the city's current running expenses will amount to $70,000 by the first of January; and that according to Treasurer Berger's statement the deficit already exceeds f 61, 000. In the heat of the discussion, City Commissioner McMillen boldly ac cused Council of introducing the subject of finances "for political ef fect." When it is considered that it was the Republican Councilman from the Third ward who opened under the subject of finances, Mr. McMillen's defense falls rather flat. In this Issue of the Democrat ex City Commissioner Hugill gives Ak ron's taxpayers some interesting in formation concerning their city's flnances,and doubtless Mr. McMillen will accuse him also of calling atten tion to the $61,000 deficit for political effect. The trouble is that for the last three years the whole Board of City Commissioners has been adminis tered for political effect and the lTR6ETfr4cOUNCJj effect has been intended to benefit Judge Anderson by helping him to build up a Machine that would make his re-election certain. If it has come to such a pass that Akron people cannot discuss their city's financial affairs without beiug accused by Judge Anderson's proxy of doing so for political effect, our citizens owe an apology to Mr. Mc Millen. Judge Anderson's proxies should abandon their parrot-like cry, when ever they are made the subject of honest criticism, that it is done "for political effect." If throughout their entire admin istration as public officials they had not been the beneficiaries and the servants of a political machine, sub ordinating the interests of the city to the interest of the Machine, their complaint that they are now being criticised "for political effect" might have some weight with intel ligent citizens. But as it is, the citizens have decreed that the proxy system must go and the proxies must go with it. FACTS FOR VOTERS. . - Two thousand business men and tax payers of Summit county peti tioned Senator Alexander to get a bill through the legislature reducing the exorbitant salaries of Summit county's officials. Senator Alexander, in conjunction witli Representative Russell and Kempel, worked hard for the passage of of a bill that would have saved the people of Summit county $30,000 a year. This bill was defeated a few hours before the leg islature adjourned by the combined efforts of Summit county's Republi can office holders. Senator Alex ander told the Summit county offic ials who were at Columbus lobbying against the bill that they would re gret their selfish opposition to what the people demanded, Every one of the two thousand men who petitioned Senator Alexander to reduce exorbi tant salaries is under obligation to vote against Clerk Hershey and the Republican machine which defeated the salary bill. Just before the Russell Salary bill was defeated, through the efforts of the local Republidan Machine, the following conversation took place on the floor of the Senate Chamber at Columbus: Senator Alexander: "Mr. Her shey, are youhere to defeat the Rus sel Salary Bill?" Clerk Hershey: "That's what I'm here for." Senator Alexander: "You'll re gret it." The Russell Salary Bill would have reduced the salaries of Summit county's office-holders $30,000 and still lmve left them a very liberal compensation- Every member of the Summit County Farmers' Institute and each of the 2,000 business men and tax payers who petitioned Senator Alexander for a salary reduction bill should vote against the Republican Machine which defeated Senator Alexander's efforts. After Senator Alexander, in con junction with Representatives Rus sell and Kempel, had worked to get a salary reduction bill through the Legislature, the political Machine which controls the high salaried offices at the Court House defeated Senator Alexander for a second term in the Legislature. Senator Alex ander was right when he tried to have the exorbitant salaries reduced, and he had the people with him. And at the polls next Tuesday they are going to show that he was right by defeating the Machine which killed the Salary bill. How long would the people of Summit county be compelled to pay their public officials exorditant sal aries if the people had a direct voice in the affairs of the Legislature? The local Republican Office-Holders' Trust would not have been able to have killed off the Russell Salary bill were the Initiative and Referen dum, which the Democratic party now advocates, in ellect.

He says: "After resorting to a number of so-called 'specifics,' usually kept in tho house, to no purpose, I purchased a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which acted like a charm.

A Letter to an Akron Firm That Shows How the People Must Pay Tribute to Industrial Robbers. The extravagant increase of the prioes of articles manufactured by the Trusts is beginning to affect the workingmen of Akron in a very oppressive way. Coal, furniture, hardware and every article of food which they use upon their tables areincreasing in price. The use of beef, owing to the large advance made by the Beef trust, Is almost prohibitive to workingmen of average wages. Akron's merchants in all lines of trade are receiving letters every day or so notifying them of the advances made upon articles manufactured by the trusts. One of Akron's prominent hardware firms kindly furnishes the Democrat the following letter, which is a fair sample of how the people are notified of the advanced prices which they have to pay the trusts: Detroit, Oct. 10, 1899. Since the last advance in prices on stoves there has been a continual increase in cost of all materials, including about five dollars per ton on pig iron, and corresponding advances on other raw materials; also, shortening of time on most of the staples to thirty days, with either one per cent, or no discount for cash. Materials we use largely have advanced since laEt summer as follows : . Pig Iron. 125. Steel 100 Copper. . . 81 Tin Plate f6 Wire 132 NaUs iro Lumber - 8r Bolts 111 Asbestos 31 Pipe 184 Pipe Fittings 111 Sivets 110 OUs 100 These advances in stove materials average over 100 per cent. There seems to be no possibility of reductions for some time to come ; therefore, an other advance of 5 per cent, is necessary on stoves at this time, and the changing of terms to those usual in other lines of trade, viz. : 60 days; 2 per cent, discount, for cash 10 days, these changes taking effect immediately. Yours very respectfully. DETKOIT STOVE WORKS. This letter Bhows an average advance of 109 percent, in the prices of thirteen articles whose supply is con trolled by trusts. Another letter, to the same Akron firm, written by F. and L. Kahn & Bros., of Hamilton, shows that the average advance of wages has been only 12& percent. It will be noticed that the letter from the Detroit Stove Works says : "There seems to be no possibility of reductions of prices for some time to come." If the workingmen of Akron vote to sustain the party, which, in its nearly four years of power, has di rected its whole efforts to encouraging the organization of trusts, they must expact yet higher advances in the prices of everything they eat, drink and wear, or use in their homes. Register your opposition to the trusts and the Ad ministration which favors them by voting the Democratic ticket one week hence. v NEXT FIGHT With Joe Choynski. Hurst Offers $1,000 and Half Receipts. Will Come Together at St. Louis Soon. E Team Won Evening's Series by One Pin. Akron High and Lorain Will Play Off Tie Game. Ruhliu's next fight will be with Joe Choynski in St. Louis. Tim Hurst, the well known base ball umpire and promoter of pugu listic contests, wired Billy Madden, Monday, offering a purse of $1,000 and 50 per cent of the gross receipts for a 20-ronnd go between the men on Monday, Nov. 0. Acting for Ruhlin, Madden promptly accepted the offer, but asked that an extension of a few weeks in the date be made. Contest between those two men TRUST GREED should be an interesting affair. Choynski has recovered much of his strength and skill and should be able to put up a game fight with Ruhlin, who will no doubt be the favorite in the betting. Close Game. The C and E teams of the Kirk- wood club bowled two close, games Monday evening. The first game won by the C team by - 37 pins, tho second went to the E's by 38 pins, giving them the evening's play by one pin, out of a total of 5,799 pins.

Cleveland, Oct. 31. Certain eastern and Ohio capitalists are said to bo desir ous of making Cleveland the pivotal point of the greatest suburban electric railway system in tue world. About 25 Philadelphia and other capitalistsare ex pected iu Cleveland today to interview representatives of street lailway com panies and members of the chamber of commerce. The visitors will probably remain in the city for a few days, and will make tours of inspection-over the various suburban hues. In a few weeks they have visited Niks, Youngstowu, Warren and other places in the northeastern section of the fctate, inspecting various suburban hues. Steps have already been taken toward the establishment of the new system, about 230 miles of right of way having been secured in the northeastern section of the state. Franchises have already been secured for the new road at Bur ton, Jefferson and Audover. In order to facilitate the work a corporation, known as the Barton, Jefferson and Andover Electric Railway company, has been formed. Tho officers are: Eugene Rawdon, president; W. H. Dodge, vice president; A. H. Lindfcley, treasurer, and E. H. Green, secretary. Negotiations are in progress for the purchase of the sub urban line between Warren and Youngs town. Representatives of the eastern in vestors are at work between Youngs town and Pittsburg and within a few years Cleveland and Pittsburg will bo the terminals of the largest electric rail way system in the country. At present, however, it is proposed to start with Cleveland as the basic point, and build out in an easterly and southeasterly di rection. PENNSY MAY GET CONTROL.

M'GIFFERT WOULD NOT RESIGN. Committee Will Iteport to New lork Presbytery ou Ills Case. New Yokk, Oct. 31. Prof. Arthur O. McGiffert of Union seminary refused quietly to resign from the Presbyterian ministry. At the final meeting of the committee of the New York presbytery it was decided so to report to the pres bytery at its next meeting. Nov. 13. The committee will report to tho presbytery that Prof. McGiffert's views are not in accord with the cardinal doc trines of the church and will recom mend that the presbytery refer the case to the general assembly of next May for more definite instructions. It is not certain that tho presbytery will accept the recommendations of its committee to refer the case back to the general as sembly as it is quite within its power to order a trial of Prof. McGiffert on its own responsibility. Prof. McGif fert and tho members of the committee refused to discuss the controversy for publication. Wot His Style. "A musician out of work, are you?" said the housekeeper.

The Spanish commission, which en tered the ui?urgeut lines a month ago with money to relieve the wants of sev eral thousand military and civil Span ish prisoners, returned to Manila. The commissioners reported that they spent moat of the time in Tarlac and vicinity, where there were some 200 sick Span iards in the hospital. The Filipinos ill treated aud"illted them, refusing to sur render them, as well as the other Span ish prisoners, in the hope of compelling Spain to recognize the independence of the islands. There were 14 American prisoners, they said, at Tarlac, all of whom were well treated. Lieutenant S. C. Gil more of the United States gunboat Yorktown, who fell into the hands of the insurgents at Baler, on the east coast of .Luzon last April, where the Yorktown had koiio on aspecial mis sion to relieve tho Spanish garrison, was at Biucrat.

According to the commissioners' state- ' ment. Amunaldo. who was at Tarlac with about 3,000 troops, wished to con tinue the war, although ho had a high opinion of the American officers and soldiers. General Lawton he called "El General de La Noche" (the night general), because that commander has attacked him so often in the darkness that he never knew when to look for him. Agninaldo was said to be well sup plied with arms and ammunition and he was able to get plenty of rice from tho northern provinces. With the Spanish commissioners came a large number of women, the families of eight prominent officers of the Filipino army, who recently applied to General Otis for permission to send then: families to Manila.
