It Revealed the Grotesque Extent to Which
the Local Politicians Were
Of the 6,000 Republican Voters In Akron, Less
Than 3,000 Were In Line, Including the
Bands and Hired Men.
The Flattening Out of the Boasts and Labors of the Trust
Party's Politicians Are an Inspiration to Demo
- - crats, and They Claim Victory.
The "Red Flro" parade of Saturday night, for which such great promises
had been made, and -which for a fortnight had' been the object of the (most
extravagant prediction and effort, measured by the expectations of Its pro
moters was the greatest disappointment of the whole campaign.
The Indifferent and half-hearted response made by local Republican voters
to the entreaties, and In some Instances, the commands of the party's local
leaders, to "get Into the ty,and wagon," has caused the campaign of the trust
party's local managers to flatten out In the elevonth hour, revealing the ox
tent to which their apparent confidence of success ban been a urodlgous bluff,
and to prepare them for the dlpuial result that will answerHheJr efforts to
control the election tomorrow.
All tlio boasts of confidence that bave been published in the Dobson paper
for the last two weeks, and tho attempt to dishearten tho Democrats of
Akron by vile and unprovoked attacks upon, their organization, have been
proven by events, as was so well bald by Mayor Y:oung several days ago, to be
the flimsiest kind of a bluff; and the fizzle of Saturday night, when of tho
0,000 voters who were expelted to be la line, only 2,500 were there ought to
Uflrve tho Democrats to aome effective work tomorrow.
The shop hands were not In tho parado; tho shop girls of whom the Bea
con said a thousand would be in line, were not thpre; the German Republicans
wtro not there; the popular decorations were not there; and most significant
of all, many of those who were forced to tako part In the parade were Bry-'
un men, and made their preforenco known all along tho llno'otiiuarcb. Beside
there was as. much Bryan enthusiasm on the sidewalks as there was for the
object of the red fire demonstration.
"Bands, red fire, fireworks and noise" have been given o fair trial In
Akron, and hnve not proven to bo ver y effective as a vote winner.
To the Voters of Summit County: ""
, Tho Executive Commltteo of the Democratic party In this
county desires publicly to thalik all persous who havt worked
for the success of Its ticket, and the moro especially because
such work has been wholly voluntary, without reward or hope
It makes also a last appeal to tho voters of the county to do
their wholo duty at the polls tomorrow.
Do you wish to endorse a policy which gives tho He to all our
honorablo history, which can be pursued only at a fearful cost of
our best lives, at an Immense expenditure of money, with a cer
tainty of adding to our burdens of taxation, of perpetuating aW
Increasing our national debt, which can never benefit the bull: of
our people, and which must at last fall of Its 'purpose, becauso
It Is founded upon injustlco?
If you do not, then vote for William .T. Bryan!
Do you desire the trusts to obtain complete control of every
avenue of honoiable effort, to Increase the price of all necessaries
of life to tho consuming public, to deny to labor Its Just shaio
of the output of Its own exertions, to shut out young and old alike
from tho honorablo ambition of obtaining tho legitimate rowaiils
of honest merit by a free field of competition and a fair chanco of
pressing to tho front, to crush out all outside Industry, nud to
bring all nllke laborers, producers, and now Independent busi
ness men, to a common low level of servile and precarious de
pendence upon their will?
If you do not, then vote for William J. Bryant
Do you favor for tho Presidency a man who not only knows
what a "plain duty" Is, but who has tho honesty and the courage
to perform It?
If you do, then vote for William .T. Bryau!
Tho trusts without exception, aro looking only to their own
Interests, desire, tho election of William McICInley.
Do you wish to consult their interests, or your own?
If your own, voto for William J. Bryan.
Remember, you can only speak through the ballot-box.
Votes alone talk. Vote as you think; not as some one else
thinks, because your vote belongs to you and not to somo one
Four years hence and tho trustswill havo us all by the throat.
A right voto then will be too late. A mistake tomorrow may
bo the mistake of your life. Take no chances. Vote for William
