NUMBER 170 AKRON, OHIO, SATURDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 4, 1899 PRICE ONE CENT AFTER The Chief of Police. Mayor Young Details a Conversation That May Explain Why an Akron Democrat Is Working Hard to Re-Elect Judge Anderson. Incidentally the Mayor Defends His Position. A Democrat reporter called on 3ayor Young this morning relative to the .report that is being circulated Tjy the friends of Judge Anderson -that Mayor Young had, in last fail's campaign, hired Mr. D. M. Collins to 0 to Peninsula in behalf of Mr. "Wanamaker. What truth is there in this story?" asked the Democrat repre sentative of the Mayor. "Some time during the campaign last fall," 6aid tlm Mayor, -Mr. Collins sent -word to me that ho wanted to see me at hU place of business on Market st. I went there and he told me that on the evening before Mr. W. T. Tobin and several others had been in his place and that he gathered from their conversation that a combination was being formed between certain Re publicans and Democrats by which the defeat of Sheriff Williams and Prosecutor Wanamaker was to be brought about, and that the same combine would effect my defeat lor re-election in the spring. He said that after hearing this he had decided to pull off his coat and go to work for Mr. Wanamaker. "I told him that I had called on Mr. Sawyer early in the campaign and said to him, that owing to the fact that Mr. "Wanamaker and my self had been life long friends and for a number of years been associated in business, I could not go out and work against him. "I promised, however, to take no part in the fight for Prosecutor either for or against either candidate. I said to Mr. Sawyer that no doubt a great many of my enemies would come to him with stories that I was was working against him; that he could test the truthfulness of these stories by asking them to name some Democrat whom I had ap proached; that it would be impos sible for me to speak to naif a dozen Democrats until I would strike one who would 6ay: 'I am a Democrat and propose to support my ticket,' and would call me to task for work ing against the nominee of my party, Ilfffffffl S6s Continued on Last Page. The Inconstancy of a Board. The following comparative table shows how Judge Anderson'i proxies upon the Board of City Commissioners have vacillated upon the Akron telephone question with the vacillations recorded in their chronological order : May 16, 1898, the City Commissioners, by a vote of three to one, approve the twenty-five year fran chise of the Central Union i .. m.

Jan. 20, 1899, Central Union company files ap plication with Commis sioners for permission to put wires under ground as provided by the fran chise.

Committee of Fifty, the Commissioners withdraw this permission. May 25, 1899, in deference to wishes of Citizens' Committee, the Commis sioners instruct the City solicitor to bring suit against the Central Union company, enjoining it from putting or attempt ing to put wires under eround and authorizintr the Solicitor to employ- competent assistant coun sel, counsel is empioved, (Judge Phillips of Cleve land) at large expense to taxnavers. ... - . i June w, ibyy, commis sioners, Crisp, MoMillen and Paige, without con sulting the City's legal advisers, go to office of Central Union Co. 's coun sel and make 'affidavit that they were perfectly satisfied with the plat of tne u. u. t. uo. ana that they desire and always had desired to give the Central Union Telephone company the right to place its wires under ground This last act was evidently too muoh for the gentlemen of the Citizens' Committee of Fifty, as the records show that they finally allowed the Commissioners to remain where in all their evolutions and gyrations they had tried to light from the oeginning upon the side of the telephone monopoly. Judge Anderson's friends insist that he should not be he held respon sible for the Board's vacillating policy. As the Judge is staking the whole issue of his election upon his insistence that the Board ought to be keptjustasit is in Its Democratic complexion especially it is difficult to see how he can evade the responsibility for the Board's conduct. It is not in the telephone controversy alone that the proxy system has been in evidence, to the everlasting discredit of the Board of Commission ers. The Board's policy has been equally transitory and unstable in other matters affecting the public interests. The only way to permit Akron to have a Board of City Commissioners which will place the best interests of the city above the selfish interests of politicians, is to defeat Judge Anderson the author and defender of the proxy system.

The church fair Riven by the ladies of St. Mary's Catholic church opened b nday evening at St. Mary's nail on South Main st. As large a crowd as the hall would hold was in attend ance, and the opening evening an en ure success. The'hall was very nicely decor ated with bunting and lights, and the many booths were very attract ively arranged. The program for the evening consisted for the first part, of a minstrel performance, en tirely oy local talent. Those who took part showed them selves able exponents of the black lace art and won hearty applause. Mr. Geo. D. Casey was interlocutor. The end men were Messrs. Edward Watts, Thomas Coghlan, Michael Ford ana Micnael Connelly. The second part of the program was farce, entitled, "That Rascal Pat." This was also civen by Akron young people, and proved a laugh-maker. The fair will continue well into next week, aud possibly Saturday night. Tonight an entirely musical program will be given. Several con tests are to take place and prizes will be drawn, while the excellent program for each of the evenings should insure the sucoess of the fair. Claim That They Are Not Treated Fairly Making Things Unpleasant. The messengers for the American District Telegraph company went on a strike again Saturday. They claim that they are not treated fairly in reference to wages by the company. A number of the strikers gathered in front of the office and -made mat ters decidedly unpleasant for those who refused to join in the strike and the messengers who were employed to take their places. They would greet the new arrivals with cries of "Scab" and otner equally compli mentary terms. - One of the new messengers was caught and tied to a post where he was kept prisoner for some time.

In Col. Dick's "Own County," Too. By Thomas F. Walsh, President Akron fc Cuyahoga Falls Rapid Transit) Company, I believe that Jolin R. McLean will carry Summit county by from 500 to 000 plurality. There is no op position to him in his own party, except among a very limited number who will vote for him, despite the fact that he was not their choice for the nomina tion. There is great opposition to the Republican ticket, due to the stand of party leaders on the trust question. Hanna is driving a great many Republi can votes to Jones. I think that Jones will have in the neighborhood of 1,000 votes in Summit county, and 700 of these will come from the Republicans. It is my belief that the Democratic ticket will win be cause the people have awakpned to a realization of what is right and right will triumph. The can didates on the Democratic county ticket will be elected by pluralities ranging from 600 to 1,000. Some will havo pluralities even exceeding this. The ticket will win from top to'bottom. By Ex-Oov. Sidney Edgerton. The election which is to take place next Tuesday, I consider of paiamount importance; and I desire to make a last appeal to the Republican voters of Summit county 4-with whom! have labored for so many years. I l beek no office. I desire no favors from any poim- cal party, and 1 acknowledge no boss or dictator, but I " consider tho prpsent political condition dangerous to the liberties of the American people. That grand old party which it wab my good fortune to help organize, and for whose good I spent the earliest and best days of my life a party that has achieved so much for this country has abandoned "every principle for which it was founded. It was founded on the Declaration of Independence, J which declares that all men were born free aud equal, fr and that nations derive their just power from the con t sent of the governed. That doctrine is now scoffed at and derided by the party that presumes to call itself the Re publican party. It was founded in opposition to slavery aud polyg- j.ainy, which we denounced as the "twin relics of bar barism." Under the present Administration the American flag V" has been raided over contract slaveiy in Hawaii, where men are driven to their labor as slaves were driven on the Southern plantations. Under the present Administration the American flag lias been raised in Sulu over the slave pens and harems xf tho Sultan and his subjects and by trpaty this Ad ministration has guaranteed the perpetuity of these in stitutions, and. what ib more, has agreed to pay the Sultan $10,000 a year with which he may add to his slave pens aud replenish his haiems. I ask my Republican friends if they can justify these acts and go to the polls next Tuesday and vote their approval. What is more, this Administration has launched the country into a merciless war of conquest. All wars of conquest are simply murder. We have no justification, iu honesty or morals, in invading a peaceful and unoffending country, desolating it by Are and tword, murdering its people who aresimply defending their own altars and firesides as our fathers defended theirs in the days of the American revolution. It is Idle to set up the pretext that wo bought these peoplo from Spain. We Republicans used always to denounce the buying of men, women and children, even at retail, but the claim is now set up that we bought 10,000,000 people at .-wholesale for thopaltry consideration of $20,000,000. At the time pf this pretended sale, Spain had uo Title to a foot of land in tho Philippines, or any control over the people of those islands. She had been conquered by the Filipinos and had surrendeied before the treaty was made. The Filipinos had established a government which our minister at Hong Kong and others declared protected both life and property. Will you Republicans by your vote approve of this act of our government? I wish to ask my Republican friends what they propose to do with the Filipinos in event of their being conquered? Are they to be free American citizens with representatives in our Congress? or are they to be slaves? Thc-y must be one or the other. How many American lives are you willing to sacri fice to satisfy the greed of a few millionaires and the ambition of reckless political leaders? The present Republican'party, through its speakers, openly advocateb the creation and continuance of Trusts. Are you in favor of buildjng up these great monopolies which are fast increasing the prices of everything you eat, drink and wear? I am not. Are you in favor of a large standing army, which haB always been the bane of liberty? If you are, in voting for Mr-. Nash, you'll vote for tho right man ; for such an army we would then be obliged to support not only to guard our foreign properties, but also to protect the large corporations and trusts. Are you in favor of brutal bosslsm, which dictates the offleers you are to elect, and how you shall vote? In other words, are you in favor of the tyranny of Mark Hanna? Some of my Republican friends have asked me how I could support the Democratic party. I do it because I think it is right, and the Republican party wrong. I wasnot reaied in the school of Old Brabautio, who "would not serve God if the devil told him to." I be lieve that right is more than party, and that independent manhood is more than ofllce. .. Wre paid $20,000,000 for a barren title, and are spend ing nearly $1,000,000 daily in a wicked, merciless, inhu man war, which our children and children's children will have to pay a burden which we have no right to impose upon them. Vote as your conscience dictates, and not as your party boss commands. VOTE EARLY. Recent Opinion of Secretary of State Necessitates This. Secretary of State, iu a r.ecent opinion, announced that voters could not oast their ballots after 5:80 o'clock even though they are inside the both . at that hour. This only emphasizes the fact that the only safe plan to adopt 1b that of voting early. It is probable that there will be a great many who will wait until the last minute before starting for the polls. To guard against losing your chanco to vote, go to the booth early.

The Library Board met Friday evening with the following mem bers in attendance: Messrs. Sey bold, Humphrey, Vaughan, Hoynes and Doran. The name of Miss Jnlia Brady was presented as an applicant for the po sition of assistant librarian. There is a large number of these applica tions in the hands of the Board. The librarian's report showed the receipts for the past month, $14.07, and the expenditures, $19.03, a de crease as compared with last month. Bills aggregating $267.40 were al lowed and ordered paid. At the last meeting a communica tion wasTead frpm Mr. R. Watters, representing the Chicago Library Bureau, with Whom the Board lias" had a long controversy regarding furniture bought from the Burea. The letter was referred to the Li brary committee, who reported last night, that if the Chicago people would allow a reduction of $50 for the wiring of stacks, the bill which amounts to $400, would be paid. It was moved and carried to pay the bill if such arrangements could be made, Mr. Humphrey stating that his consent was given with reluct ance. A memorial of the late H. K. Sauder was shown to the Board, and Mr. Barnhart, who prepared it, was ordered paid. The Finance committee was in structed to ascertain the amount of insurance caried on library property, and inorease it if necessary. There is now about $2,000 in the treasury.

THE FARMERS Mr. Lambacher's Good Record. Mr. Christ Lambacher, Democratic candidate for Land Appraiser of the Fourth ward, was elected to that office ton years ago, and for his good record made then the tax payers can make no mistake by re-electing him. Col. Chas. Dick, at that time auditor, remarked that he was one of the best appraisers in the county and he was only sorry that he was a Democrat. Mr. Lambacher's report to the Board of Equalization was accepted Without making a single change. Mr. Frank G. Stipe, the Republi can candidate for Land Appraiser, was a member of the Board of Equal ization at that time and if any tax payer in the Fourth ward did not get a proper adjustment of his taxes it was no fault of Mr. Lambacher's.
