SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4 PURCHASING AN ENDORSEMENT. Were it not for the fact that candi dates upon tho local Republican ticket have the backing of an enor mous campaign fund were they running wholly upou their merits and the justice of their cause, as tho Democratic candidates, being men of moderate means, are compelled to run there would be no doubt of the result of the local election in Sum mit county next Tuesday. A week ago the Desiocbat told the people that the candi datos upon the Republican county ticket had at their personal service a campaign fund crowding oloBely upon $10,000. Every cent of this fund represented money un worthily taken from tho people of Summit county through the defeat of the Russell Salary bill a bill which the Republican convention two years ago had pledged its nominees to support and for whose passage two thousand prominent Republicans of Summit county had petitioned. A vote for the Republican county ticket next Tuesday will be a vote to r continue the payment of exorbitant salaries to county officials and an endorsement of the under-handed methods by whioh tho Russell Sal ary bill was defeated. Success this fall will strengthen the Machine politicians in their ability to defeat the wishes and the interests of the people. Nothing but the overwhelming de feat of the Machine candidates will teach the politiciaus in control that 'there is a limit to the wrongs and in dignities to whioh the citizens of Summit county will submit. Rebuke the Machine by supporting the Democratic county ticket. THE LAST EXPEDIENT. Probate Judge Anderson has abandoned all hope of getting Re publican votes and is bending his whole efforts to getting Democratic votes. The sole issue upon which the Judge and his organ are begging for votes in the closing days of tho campaign, to the exclusion of all other issues and the interests of all other candidates, is that he will appoint a certain Democrat to the office of Commissioner. Meanwhile the Republican candi dates for Commissioner, who have been promised, only to be turned down; the Democratic candidates who will be willing to stand by the interests of the people through thick and thin if appointed Commissioner; and the thousands of independent citizens of both parties who are dis gusted with Judge Anderson's des perate attempts to build up a per sonal political Machine at the ex pense of the city's best interests, are going to vote solidly againEt Judge Anderson next Tuesday. Judge Anderson has played his last.trump. It will fail. "Jones and Labor His Sucker Rod Company is a Non Union Shop Jones Opposed the Unionizing of It How Does It Tally With Mr. Jones' Professions of Friendship for Workingmen?" Under the above scare heading the Beacon printed a long articlo last night to convince Republican Union workingmen that they are making a mistake when they vote for Mayor Jones. This is demagogy, pure aud simple. Ask the men of the Street Railway Union and kindred labor organizations of Akron how much love the Beacon has for organized labor when it is not engaged in a political campaign? A paper that does not carry the union label itself because of its persistent antagonism to the principle of or ganized labor, should not pick flaws in the labor record of others not even Jones, whom the Beacon used to account a pretty good Republican. In convebsation with an -old soldier friend this week, Chairman Stuart, of tho Republican Executive Committee, remarked that he had "never tried to turn the Board of City Commissioners into a political machine while holding the office of Probate Judge." Any of Judge Stuart's many warm friends in Sum mit county will cheerfully testify that this is a fact. But what ona of them has said as much for Judge Anderson? Mr. Dobson's paper is the only authority that has given Judge Anderson a certificate of non interference in the affairs of Akron. Against the testimony of such prom inent Republicans as ex-City Com missioner Jos. Hugill, Senator J. Park Alexander, chairman of the Citizens' Committee of Fif ty, and many other public spirited members of the Citizens' Committee all of whom have insisted upon one occas ion or another that Judge Auderson has been a dictator the testimony of the Dobson paper does not count. Jodoe Axdebson seems to imag ine that he is the only candidate upon the Republican county ticket this fall. The interests of all other candidates are being sacrificed or subordinated by the Judge and the Dobson paper to give the Judge a second term. The Republican or ganization is being demoralized by Judge Anderson's selfish truckling to the friends of a Democrat whom the Judge is trying to retain in office at all hazards. An official who makes it a practice to give his own party only indifferent support, but who is constantly trimming in his official conduct as a means of bid ding for the support of members of the opposite party, sooner or later comes to grief. Indications are that Judge Anderson is scheduled to be s helved by his party next Tuesday. Republican politicians are con tinuing the cry that they want Mr. McKInley endorsed when it is al roady certain that he cannot be endorsed. Even if Judge Nash should be elected by a small plurality they could not claim it as an endorse ment of the administration. The presidential policies are only on trial in presidential or congressional years. The claim of Mr. Hanna's crew of office-seekers that the president is on trial in every election this year, whether it be for state or county officers or road supervisors, is the last cry in behalf of an expiring and hopeless cause. If ever despairing politicians tried to force absurd and foreign issues upon the people, it has been done by Mr. Hanna's managers in this campaign. It will be remembered that iu the campaign last spring, when they felt themselves losing grouud,the friends of Mr. Arthur J. Rowley circulated & petition asking the Republicans of Akron to vote for Mr. Rowley on the strength that it would be "holding up the hands of President McKin ley." Some of Judge , Anderson's friends are appealing for votes for the Judge upon the same issun in this campaign. For fear that they might have overlooked the fact the Democbat reminds them that Mr. Rowley came within 850 votes of carrying Akron. At its Dayton convention last spring, the League of Ohio Republi can clubs adopted the following resolution: "We declare our uncompromising hostility to trusts and combines and call upon the good people of the state, regardless of party, to hold up the hands of Attorney General Mon nett in his vigorous efforts to secure the enforcement of the law." Attorney General Monnettgot just one vote in Mr. Hanna's convention. That was the way the "good people" upheld his hands. What will the League of Republicans do about it? Workingmen, g& "Speaking about trusts," said President Walsh, of tho Akron & Cuyahoga Falls Rapid Transit com pany, today, "the railway companies are being squeezed about as hard as the workingmen. We have just given an order to the Steel Trust for some new rails at $37 a ton. A year ago these same rails could have been bought for from $16 to $18 per ton." Mr. Walsh is more than ever con firmed in his opinion that the only way to curtail the evils of trust operation is to vote the Democratic ticket. If Judge Andebson would devote half as much personal energy to re-electing the Republicans who are candidates upon his own ticket as he does to the attempt to retain in office a City Commissioner who is not a member of his own party, lie would get more Republican votes next Tuesday. Hundreds of prom inent Republicans are going to vote against Judge Anderson because he abandoned his own party's cause and demoralized its organization by attempting to promote his own sel fish Interest. Oveb iu Europe when a subject speaks lightly of tho king they call it "lese-majesty," and the punishment is more or less severe. In Akron, when a Republican citizen dares to say a word against the uncrowned king who rules Akron by proxy from his throne on Court Honse Hill, they employ the Dobson paper to read him out of tho Republican party. And yet it is a common boast that America guarantees to her citizens the right of free thought and free speech. What has Senator J. Park Alex ander been doing in this campaign? It is well for him that be has made no public utterance against the powers that be, for if he had he would have been read out of his party in WHO IS THE "The people had an opportunity of seeing a man, claiming to be big enough to be president, acting the part of a demagogue on the rear platform of a car." The foregoing is an extract from the press dispatches of Mark Han na's speech at Bowling Green on the 25th ultimo. Since Mark Hauua and President McKinley are in practice 6trictly convertible terms, it is no injustice to the latter to imputo this language to him as well a3 to his principal the junior senator from Ohio. The speech suggests another ques tion pertinent to it: Did the people a week or two before have an oppor tunity of seeing a man, claiming to bo big enough to be twice a presi dent, acting the part of a demagog on the rear platform of a car? It may be said indeed that in this com parison Mr. Bryan has at least some negative points of advantage. It is safe to say that his hippodrome did not tour the country at the expense of the government or as the bounty of the corporations. He did not spend his time in electioneering while drawing a salary from the pub lic funds of $50,000 a year. He did not take with him a 6uite com posed of high officials whose duties are supposed to keep them elsewhere, and when ho made a statement of fact he did not conceal the most material part of it upon the presumption that his hearers either were too ignorant to know it, or were too lazy to verify it. For example, the president, from the rear platform of his car defended his imperial policy by citing our former acquisitions of territory. He was especially voluble in his praises of Jefferson for negotiating the great Louisiana purchase, and argued from it that the conquest of thePhil lipinos must be equally praise worthy. But one thing he was care ful not to tell his hearers; he did not so much as refer to the following provision of the treaty by which that purchase was consummated. "ARTICLE III. "The inhabitants of the ceded ter ritory shall be incorporated in "the Union of the United States, and ad mitted as soon as possible, according to the principles of the Federal Con stitution, to the'enjoyment of all the rights, advantages and immunities of citizens of the Uuited States; and in the meantime they shall be protected in tne tree enjoyment of their lib erty, prosperity and the religion which they profess." And yet Mr. McKinley well knew that a like guaranty to the Filipinos is not, and never has been, within the purpose or intent of the present ad ministration iu its scheme for the subjugation of their islands. Was his iteration and reiteration of the beneficent results of the Louisiana purchase, his statement of a half truth and the suppression of the other half of it, fair and plain dealing with the American people, who so far re spected the chief magistracy of our country as to go to hear him? With equal unction the President spoke of the tieaty which evidenced the purchase of Florida. But from aught that was heard from the "rear platform of his car," no one would know that a part of that treaty reads thus : "ARTICLE VI. "The inhabitants of the territories which His Catholic Majesty cedes to the United States, by this treaty, shall be incorporated in the Union of the United States, as soon as may be consistent with the principles of the Federal Constitution, and admitted to the enjoyment of all the privileges, rights, and immunities of the citi zens of the United States." When Mr. McKinley held up the Florida purchase as a shining exam double quick time by the Dobson paper. Aside from reading out of the party all prominent Republicans who have uttered a word against Judge Anderson, Mr. Dobson's paper has had very little to do since the campaign opened. Workingmen, g& It will bo observed that the Bea con has dropped its stereotyped joke to the effect that Mayor Young and City Clerk Isbell were trying to have Mr. Phelps withdraw from the county ticket. If every Democrat in Summit county will support Can didate Phelps as faithfully and as energetically as the men whom the Beacon has been abusing havo sup ported him, Mr. Phelps will be elected with the largest plurality ever given a Democratic candidate in Summit county. In his speech at Assembly hall last night Senator Foraker said that there is so much money on hand in the national treasury, $290,000,000 more or lest that Secretary Gage does not know how to get rid of it. The war of conquest in tho Phil ippines is rapidly solving the prob lemgetting rid of upwards of a million dollars a day. If the war is continued it will soon become a question of more bonds or more taxes. The President of tho Akron Bar bers' "Union says that Judge Ander son even attempted to dictate what that Union should do in the matter of endorsing candidates for City Commissioner. If the voters of Sum mit county vote to sustain tho ad ministration of "Judge Anderson next Tuesday, ihoro is no telling where this dictatorial polioy will end. By Judge CHARUES FJ GRANT. ple of imperialism, he know that his treaty contained no such reservation of rights for the people of his to-be-conquered territory; on the con trary, he knew that such a provision would be quite inconsistent with the plans of the exploiters who make up his foreign policy. Similar reference was made by the President, in the tour of his hippo drome, to the territory acquired by us as a result of the Mexican war, in 1S48. He perhaps forgot, at all events, he failed to mention, one or two things to be found in the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. "ARTICLE VIII. " Those who shall prefer to remain in the said territories may either retain the title and rights of Mexican citizens, or acquire those of citizens of the United States.. ARTICLE IX. "The Mexicans who, in the terri tories aforesaid, bhall not preserve the character of citizens of the Mex ican Republic, conformably witl what is stipulated in the preceding article, shall be incorporated intc the Union of the United States, ano be admitted at the proper time (t bp judged of by the Congress of tin United States) to the enjoyment oi nil' the rights of citizens of th United States, according to the prin ciples of the Constitution; aud in th meantime, shall be maintained and protected in the feee enjoyment ol their liberty and property and se cured in the free exercise of their re ligion without restriction." Mr. McKinley was dumb as to tbi treaty obligation which secured full American rights to all the Mexican' in California and New Mexico in 1S18, just as his treaty is silent as to the guaranteed and certain rights of the Filipino people, whom he calls "insurgents," but never citizens present or prospective. The Gadsden purchase of territory from Mexico, in 1853, was likewise dwelt upon by the president, as an example which ought to reconcile his hearers with his policy of bhooting Americanism into the inhabitants of Luzon. He appears, however, not to have known, or to have forgotten, for he said nothing of it, that the Gadsden treaty contained this stip ulation. "ARTICLE V. "All the provisions of the eighth and nintn, sixteenth ana seventeenth articles of the treaty of Guadalupe. muatgo, snail apply to tne territory ceded by the Mexican Republic in the first article of the present treaty. and to all the rights' of persons aud property, both civil and ecclesiasti cal, within the same, as fully and as effectually as if the said articles were herein again recited and set forth." And while Mr. President was thus reasoning from these treaties to his treaty, but suppressing the fact, lim ning through all of them, of solemn covenants of equality of civil rights with us, and which makes his basis of analogy absolutely worthless, aud in view of the policy pursued by his General Otis, of refusing even to re ceive or recognize any deputation from the Filipinos seeking an ami cable solution of their disagreemenf with us, it would not have been en tirely out of plac9 for Mr. McKinley to tell his listeners tho purport of another provision of this same treaty to which, among others, he so confi dently appeals in justification of his policy of conquest: "ARTICLE VII. "Should there at any future period (which God forbid) occur any disa greement between the two nations which might lead to a repture I of their relations and reciprocal peace, they bind themselves in like manner to procure by every possible method the adjustment of every dif ference; and should they still in this manner not succeed, never will they proceed to a declaration of war with- Akeox's Republicans will observe that it was only when Judge Ander son was approaching the time when he would bo a candidate for a second term himself that he became an ardent advocate of the second term principle in public office. Second terms cut no figure in the cases of Messrs. Jos. Hugill and Franklin G. Stipe. Indeed, a score or so of prom inent Republicans who had been 'promised" were not even given one term. Ay Akbox dealer informs the Democrat that the increase of thirty cents a barrel in the price of salt will net the Salt Trust $1,200,000 a year. And this is an insignificant sum compared to the tribute the peo ple have to pay to the five hundred or more other trusts. The prosperity of the people Is going into the coffers of the Trusts. Will the people vote to sustain the Trust Administration next Tuesdpy? Workingmen, g& If any Summit county Democrat has any other than purely selfish reasons why Judge Anderson should be re-olected Probate Judge, the Democrat would be glad to publish them. No Democrat can show that it will be to tho host interests of the city to havo Judge Anderson re elected with power to continue tho proxy system for the noxt three years. 0 Between holding In line tho col ored men who aro not going to vote for Nash ; tho Welsh voters who are going to vote for their countryman, J-nes; nutl tiio Republican voters who are going to vote for Phelps, the Beacon is having an uphill timo of it. Ir any of Summit county's Repub- DEMAGOGUE ? out having previously paid attention to what has been set forth in articlo 21 of the treaty of Guadalupe Hidal go for similar cases, which article is here re-affirmed." Now article 21, thus referred to, provides for the settlement of differ ences by arbitration. The President wanted his hearers to believe that in his course in the Philippine islands he is but tread ing the path of time-honored Ameri can precedent and upholding patri otic American tradition. To induce this belief it was of course essential to be silent as to treaty provisions which destroy the value of tho in ference he wishes thepublic to draw. He was equally insistent on the good which has come to us from the purchase of Alaska. He said noth ing about a part of the treaty by which Alaska became ours. It is this: "ARTICLE III. "The inhabitants of the ceded ter ritory, according to their choice, re serving tneir natural allegiance, may return to Russia within three years; )"ut if they should prefer to remain in the ceded territory, they, with the exception of uncivilized native tribes. -hall be admitted to the enjoyment of ill the rights, advantages and im- uunities of citizens of the United States, and shall be maintained in he free enjoyment of their liberty property and religion." Now a fair reference to our former icquisitions of territory should have included a statement of this uniform line of treaty agreements by which the full equality with us of the rights f citizenship have been so solemnly safeguarded for incoming peoples, hut which are not secured to the Philippine islanders. Why was it not maue, as well as a frank ac knowledgement of the world-wide difference between the peaceable purchase of territory contiguous to ours, and the military conquest of islands in another hemisphert? But the sins of presidential omis sion do not end here. Mr. President said from the "rear platform of his car," that "America never buys peace with gold." Here is a singu lar lapse of memory. He plainly had forgotten (for otherwiso surely he would have told it) the treaty by which three month ago he bought the peace of his "good brother," Hadji Mohamad Womolol Kiram, otherwise known as the Sultan of Sulu, paying him therefor ten thousand dollars, moreor less, and throwing into the bargain the right to keep up a slave barracoon and to maintain a harom of plural wives two things which Mr. McKinley's party a generation ago began de nouncing as "twin relics of barbar ism," and which it pledged itself to extirpate, aud did extirpate, at a cost too well known to us all, and both of which are nowprohibited by American law. Tho President did not even explain to his audience what kind of a diplomatic acrobat it takes to make a treaty with his own subject. Perhaps Mr. President had a mental reservation up his sleeve in the fact that Hadji etc. was paid off in Mexican dollars. But then, in the Canton porch platitudes these same, dollars were regarded as so sinful, so depraved and immoral, so utterly dishonest that to pass them off on any one except a Mussulman would be a grievous wrong. Mr. McKinley, while "swinging 'round the circle," ala Andy John son, had a great deal to say about "destiny" pushing him into his war of conquest ; about destiny determin ing duty; about "responsibility born of duty;" about waging this war "because in the providence of God luIS "rcnipeiago nas Deen piaceu in the hands of the American people;" licans who are disaffected will kindly call at the Probate Judge's office, they will be given a "promise." Mr. F. W. Rockwell, and a score or more of other prominentlocal Republicans, know 'that Judge Anderson can do his duty well in this particular line. Two hundred and eighty-six o Akron's leading citizens and busi ness men petitioned Judge Anderson to reappoint Mr. F. G. Stipe, an old soldier, to the Board of City Com missioncis, bat Judge Anderson turned him down at the eud of his first term. The Machine has sought to get Mr. Stipe back into line by giving him tho nomination for real estate appraiser from a ward in which he has no earthly show of election. This is the way of Machine politics. The Democbat has it from good Republican authority that when Mr. C. S. Seese, the Republican candi date for Ropresentative,v,Tas a candi date for delegate to the State Conven tion, lie remarked, when asked whom he would support for Governor: "Any man who is good enough for Mr. Hanna is good enough for me." No wonder the Republican friends of Senator Foraker have organized in Summit county to invite Mr. Seese to stay out of the Legislature. Some of the Court House officials may have observed tht Senator Alexander postponed his trip to tho Sandwich islands long enough to be in Akron to vote. rAOTios to ovn ke.idf.im In iiuylng Uio remedy "To Cure n Ciild In On, lny."

Manx worthless lmlta lons nr put up ander similar sames and tt9 ulculated to decelre the public. that the war "came to us not of our own seeking," and soon in kindred pious ejaculations for quantity. Here again Mr. President forgot to say what bis former Secretary of State and his own personal and con fidential representative in the Span ish treaty commission was at the same moment saying in a published letter, to wit: that our title to the Philippines rests not at all upon con quest, but wholly upon purchase, Mr. Day also saying that this must be so because when the treaty was negotiated we were in possession of only an infinitessimnl strip of Philip pine territory. Mr. McKinley then, should have told his hearers, if he had desired to tell the whole truth , why, since our title depends solely upon a treaty purchase, and since tho treaty did not go into effect until each of the parties to it had ratified it, and since Spain did not ratify it until late in March, he was claim ing both title and possession of those islands as early as December, when he fulminated his "benevolent as similation" doctrine. And since it is thus certain that the islands were not forced upon us by the fortunes of war, but were bought for twenty millions of hard earned dollars, Mr. President can hardly pose as the humble instrument of God's provi dence in waging war on the other side of the globe, and all his pious talk about "destiny" and the like can deceive no man who is not will ing to be deceived. The fact is, as Mr. Day's letter "proves, we bought from Spain an option to fight the Filipinos, and no amount of patron izing of Providence will shirk off on the latter the responsibility for the present war. Farnsworth, the man who is under arrest in Chicago for bigamy, admits having 45 wives. He puts up as a defense that as our constitution se cures to all citizens the uniform operatioYi of laws iu every part of the United States, and since the Presi dent claims that the Sulu islands are a part of our territory and yet suffers tho Sultan to keep a plurality of wives, that since this is so, he, Farnsworth, ought to go acquit; nor is it hard to point out the inconsis tency of his position. Surely Mr. McKinley will not allow "foreign pauper labor" in tho wife business to compete with "home industry" in the same line. Mr. President may "shove the queer" on the poor Hadji Mohamad Womolol Kiram, in the shape of "dis honest Mexican dollars; he may state half truths to tho people from the rear platform of a car. He may devolve upon Providence the respon sibility of an act for the benefits of which he claims credit for himself; he ought also to bear in mind Low ell's verse : 'EI you take a sword an' dror It, An' go stick a feller thru', Guv'ment alnt to answor for It. God'll send the bill to you." Ho seems, however, to have been reading rather, the "Pious Editor's Creed:" "I du belie-v e utever trash '11 keep the people In blindness Thet we the Mexicans can thrash Bight Into brotherly kindness, Thet bombshells, grape, an' po der 'n bnll Air good-will's strongest magnets, Thet peace, to make It stick at all, Must be druv in nith baynets.

In view of these things, from tho rear platform of which car was "the part of a demagog" acted? GENEROUS Treatment of the Eighth Ohio Boys. John R. McLean Remembered Them While They Were In Camp Alger. In June, 1898, while the Eighth Regiment, O.V.I., was stationed at Washington, D. C. John R. McLean visited the camp, and asked the boys what they wanted. Tho boys intimated.that some to bacco would fill a long-felt waut,and so Mr. McLean said they should have all they wanted. Major Weybrecht detailed Lieut. W. O. Rutherford of Company B, a well known Akron young man, to call on Mr. McLean for the coveted articles. Mr. McLean took Lieut. Ruther ford to a tobacco store and said: "Now pick out what you want, and don't limit the quantity." The soldier boys' benefactor as sisted in selecting the good, and when the consignment was ready to go to camp, there were in it plug to bacco, finecut. smoking tobacco, pipes and cigars for all the boys in tho Third battalion. When the appreciated gift arrived, the boys all congratulated and gave three lusty cheers for John R. Mc Lean. During tho hot season, Mr. McLean also sent a thousand pounds of Ice every day to Camp Alger.
