AKRON DAIty DEMOCRAT. ' i 1tf VOLUME 11 NUMBER 165. AKRON, OHIO, THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 30, 1902. PRICE ONE rnMT "- '4 j ' tW , I I i WILLING To Wait For Mr. Hanna. Mayor Johnson Would Like to Talk With Him. Even Its Enemies Arc Forced to Defend New Code. Cleveland, O., Oct. 30. Mayor John Eon is winning new laurels nightly In the meetings ho Is addre&sing and last night spoko twlco In one of the Republican strongholds of k tho cltJ' The first meeting waH at Burton st. and Woodbrldge av. Among other things the Maj'or said: "Hanna Inst night said that ho Is camping on my trail. 1 am very glad to hear it Now, if the old man will only hurry up a little I will go hIow, and perhaps he will overtake me. That woud bo most satisfactory. There arc a great many things which I would like to discuss with him, and It Is very pleasing to know thut ho Is camping on my trail. But, seriously, I do not believe that ho will get much further than camping on my trail. I believe that ho has no wish to over take mo. This Is not because Mr. Hanna Is ufrald. Ho s not a coward. But there are a number of questions which he knows I would ask him, and ho does not qare to face these propositions. He Is not a liar. He would have to run or answer, and ho would not answer falsely. And Mr. Hanna la not the kind of a man who enjoys running away. So I fear that his camping on nry trail will not bring about the meeting Which we hao all bo greatly desired." At the other meeting at Sibley nnd Haywood sts., tho Mayor seveiely criticised President Haney D. Gould er, of the Chamber of Commerce, for his recent defense of the Municipal Code. "One, instanco will show what he roic efforts are being made by the Republicans to whip tho memheis of their paity into line for the suppoit of the Municipal Cod," said tho May or. ,"Mr. Haney D. Gouldcr, pi evi dent; of the Chamber of Commeicc, was, the hcad,flf(the committee of tho Cbajnber"whleh went tovColunibus to urge .upon the Hoube and Senate tho adoption of a decent code, especially Dno with some provision for the nieilt system, or civil service. Thnt com mittee was tieated so rudely that many of them i of used to speak befoie the lawmakers nt all, declaring that the body was dominated by outside Influences, and that whatever they ivould say would be of no mail. Nevertheless tho wise recommenda tions of tho committee were present ed and were utterly Ignored by butli Houses. The commltteo came back to Cleveland In a very unpleasant name of mind and had hard things to say of tho Legislators and their code. And ono of these was Mir Goulder, who occupies tho high and bonorablp position of president of the Chamber. "Now Mr. Goulder seems to havo HAVE SEEN THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL Machine Politicians Will Bet No More Money on Their Candidates. About a week ago, it was nnnounced that thero was $5,000 In sight to back up the old claim of tho machine poli ticians that Pardee would hao 500 more votes than Young. Tho Young supporters wentnftor this immediately, and after a groat deal of skirmishing and ontreaty thoy managed to get $100 of it. This Is all of tho alleged "$5,000 in sight," that was put up. Tho best that can bo got out of the Pardee men at present Is even bets, and they're very slow in putting these up, too. They are offering no odds whatever, and this Is another indica tion of the fact that the voters havo no faith in tho statements of tho ma chine behind Pardee that ho will be elected by a flue majority. Tms dampening of onthuslasm has taken nlaco durlmr tlin nnihnn itnm as a result of tho discovery of tho real I Buunuou. An mo uoclo bill has had a great deal to. do -with it. tnn. rri in. dependent voters In tho ranks of our inenas, mo enemy, have redoubled their efforts In tho intnroutu nt m Democratic ticket since the enactment Df me code bill. They reallzo that tho uouo uni win enauie tho machine to pet a muclj tighter grip on tho peoplo d tho city than it has now, if these politicians win out this fall, and for this reason many of tho lniionAminnfr roters w ho have been working quietly nice mo opening or tlie campaign aro low out openly, dolng'their utmost changed bis mind. Ho has actually como out and defended tho sanio things which ho befoio so bitterly de nounced. Mr. Goulder haK simply been whipped Into line. They havo succeeded In- whipping Mr, Goulder In line, but they will not succeed In whipping tho masses of the party Into line. Tho masses of tho Itopubllcaii party, no less than tho masses: of tho Democratic party, believe In Justice, decency, and fair play, and cannot bo brought by Sonator Hanna to en dorso what has been done by tho bost domlnated Leglslatuie."

Uncle Sam Won't Trifle With Colombia, But Start the Panama Canal Very Soon. Washington, Oct. 30. It Is an nounced today at the State depaitment that the United States Government will not bo delayed beyond a reason able time In its plan JTor tho construc tion of the Panama canal. If Colombia manifests a disposition to hagglo over tonus, the price to bo paid her and the extent of the United States' Juris diction on the Isthmus, tho United States government will not wait to conclude a treaty with her, but wlll begin digging tho canal and discuss the toims afterwards. This govern ment has determined to construct a canal, it has selected the Panama route as the best, most practical and cheapest, the money to purchnse it has been appropriated, and the title has been found perfect.

Kar over in one comer of the cleared ground Is n'snug shooting box. Tho pioporty represented an outlay of $50,000, but it was on the market for some time nt ?12,n00 befoie Mr. Rockefeller bought it. Ho bought the property that ho might have a golf couise. He has taken to golf as his mode of exercise. to defeat tho candidates of the ma chine. ( There will bo a landslide from the ranks of the machine thl3 fall, if the voters opposed to It stand firm and Keep up their good work. Barker men are also not as "chipper" as they weie a week ago. Somo of them wero then offering to bet that ha would win by a majority of 1,000. They are now offcilng nothing better than oven money. In tho case of Clint Kllno there is positively no money in sight to back up the claim that he will win. Some have offered to bet that ho will not be tho lowest man on tho ticket, This Is tho only bot that tho Kline men will make. Tho Smith men ore also somewhat discouraged by rumors to the offect that ho Isn't anxious to bo elected Treasurer since the new Codo takes away from the County Tieasuror all of tho city funds. The city fpndB will' be handled by a City Treasurer, and tho offlce of County Treasurer will be greatly diminished as a money maker. Nothing Is being said about tho other county candidates on tho nepubltcan ticket, nnd this suggests tho conclusion that they, too, are marked for slaugh- ten You -can set It down that thero will bo a landslide to the Democratic can didates In Summit county this fall and nothing will prrmVlV j ' " " vA GRASPED Lever, Reversed the Engine, And Dashed on to His Death, Brave Engineer Lost His Life In a Wreck.

"The code is the embodi ment of homo rule.

It Is a wise safeguard enacted solely for the Interests of the people and to take tho board out of polities and Uejoud tho giasp of pojltlclans.

"And In this connection I will say that I do not believe a group of men could be selected who would frame a better code than the one that has Just hrcn enacted Into law. Now when nnj body dates to say that the last Leg. Islaturc In framing the code was actuat ed by nnj thing save patriotic motives I answer that It is a black falsehood. The code was not framed in the inter ests of any set of men, but for tho peo. pie of the state. You will wclcomo tho new code, where all your servants will bo directly responsible to you. And In addition It s a great recommenda tion that the codo is Indorsed by Gov. Nash, for )io more honest man ever sat In the Governor's chair." Crawford Returns To New York Now Yoik, Oct. 30. F.
