To Wait For Mr.
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

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

to Cleveland In a very unpleasant

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.

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.

"The New Code Is the
Best Possible."
Senator Hanna Said These and
Other Things.
Cleveland, 0., Oct. 30. Sonator Han-
na got to talking about the new munici
pal codo In hs speech In a Republican
tent meeUng on the West Side, last
night. "Why talk about home rule?"
said he. "The code is the embodi
ment of homo rule. Every good citizen
will Imkuec tho proposition of having
the appointment of members of tho
Board of Public safety approved by a
two thirds ote of the council. 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 If tho in
doisemcnt of the Council Is not forth
coming within 30 days the Governor
will appoint and he will ccrtaluly ap
point good me)).
"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."
