Kauffman, chairman of tbe Democratic central committee of Stark county and the neighbor and former supporter of Congressman' J Whltacre. Mr. Kauffman lives f In Canton, the home , of the congress man, and is in a position to support the facts which he presents as the real reason why Whltacre is advocat ing the election of the Republican nominee for governor. They are con tained in Tli, i terance:' , "His stand' simply shows to what ends the moneyed 'men of the vtate are willing to carry their fight They find that they are hard hit by the tax laws and the workman's compensation law, two of the greatest progressive measures ever enacted. "It should prove to the honest tax payer that he has nothing to fear. These laws have, stepped on the toes of the men who have been dodging their taxes and they are naturally sore and have succeded, if this report Is true, In getting Whltacre to come back and try to stir up discontent. "I don't believe that he can find enough dissatisfied men in the county to form an organization." Supporting Chairman Kauffman Is Thomas H. Leahy, a Canton attorney, who acted as Mr. Whitacre'a field lieu tenant in the recent primary contest. In bis statement he defines His posi tion and raises a question concerning Wlltacre's sincerity: "I.. worked hard for Whitacye's nom ination, but I'm a Democrat and I'm for the ticket from top to bottom; l expect to do everything in any power" to help elect Cox. - VV - "I talked with Whltacre a week ago and he said nothing at that time about a revolt. , I supposed ' all the time that he was sincere when, he said after the primaries that be was through with the fight" BRYAN IN' OHIO.

R. Men at Bier of Comrade The following sketch of ths life of he late M. V. Green, is cop'yi from the Kent Ccrrier, to wbrt i ;. we, are also indebted for the use of the illus tration: , . M. V. Green died at 3 a. m., Thurs day at Medina where he' and- Mrs. Green had been living since last fpring. After their terrible exper ience in the Dayton flood Mr. Green ruffered in-health. During the win ter 'e grew more nervous and the coming anniversary of the flood filled Mm with a dread of its repetition. As a result, they went to Medina, l ack among old home friends; ,Mr. Green being a native of Sharon and Mrs. Green, of Medina, they being married 51 years ago June 1, last in that town. Quiet and ret was obtained, but permanent help was not to be had. For weeks past Mr. Green had been living over the old days of railroad ing, calling in delirium for the men of A. & G. W. days, men with whom he had associated back fifty years ago. For eght days past he had been un conscious and for forty-eight hours he lay motionless, the end coming peacefully, much like his life, f,or in r.pite of the activities of railroading, Mr. Green kept his nerve and 'self- pontrol. He was loved by . the men!011 "The Flag, My Protector," and a with , whom he worked and possessed the respect and good-will of the com pany. "Mat" Green was a good rail road man, a good citizen and friend. Mr. Gree,n had rounded out over 46 M. V. GREEN years of service with the' company. He came 'into the service over ,49 years ago, in 1865, but was with the Wis consin Central in Chicago for three years. ; Few Erie men were better known and none Trad more frends than "Mat" Green." ' . , : Sharon, O., was the scene of Martin V. Green's With, in June, 1840. He was only 1.7 when in 1857 he began his railroad career on the 'Wabash line Later he served with the Hannibal & St. Joe road .and with the Chicago, Burlington & 'Qaincy. He came to the A. & G. W. about the closing of Ovil war days and had been in continuous service on the line under, its various names wih the ex ception of the three years in the windy city, after which he returned to Kent to take, charge of the round house. ; Mr. Green had many relics of the early days m the road, when he ser ved as fireman and' engineer., He treasured memories of the pioneers of he road and had a great fund of re miniscences, both humorous and sad. Scores of his old friend of theiroad have ' met their deaths beneath their engines. Mr, Green was a Xaat winner, yet a careful man and a good . engineer. More than once he won commendation for the display of good Judgment in tain running. During bis long residence in Kent, Mr. Green won a host of friends out tide of raf road circles. Ho was for a number of years a member of the board of education. He spent some years in Gallon. In 1902 he afid,Mrs. Green moved to Dayton, where he had charge cf the round house and the de spatching' of 'engines, a part cf rail road work for. which ho was skilled. Four years ago he was retired by the age limit, but was given other employ ment up until last April, when hii health failed. 'Mr. Green is survived 'by his wife and three sons, Frank C, of. Cleve land, Forest B., of Chicago, . and Charles C.,; of the Philadelphia North American. Mrs. Green was formerly Aurelia B.,Wnitniore, of Medina, i She sad -I'Ti Green were married in 1863.

J Schools Honor National Hymn Patriotism was the keynote of the exercises of the Medina public schools Monday morning at 9 o'clock when the "Star Spangled Banner" was sung in the various rooms by the pupils. An interesting program, con nected with the writing of the na tional hymn was carried out. Mon day was the one hundredth anniver sary of the writing of the song by Francis Scott Key in Baltimore. The teachers and pupils of the schools entered into the spirit of the occasion in the morning program. In most of the rooms, a program was carried out consisting of readings, songs, recitations, and short talks. The exercises were held in re sponse to a suggestion from State Supt of schools Frank W. Miller. A salute was given to the American flag by the pupils as follows: "I give my head and my heart to God and my Country. One country, one lan guage, one flag." The program included the reading of Secretary of the Interior Franklin W.

The total valuation of all the tax able property in Medina county for 1914 As shown by the District Asses r'fi books will be $42,934,995, a gain of $2,764,095. The State levy for 1913 was .961 mills. If it had not been reduced Medina county "would have paid the State $41,260.53; but since, it ' has been reduced to .45 mills, we will pay the state $19,320.75, a saving to the county of $21939.78. The increase in the duplicate ($2,764,095) at one per cent wheh 'is about the average for the townships of the county, makes $27,640.95. If we add to that $21, 939.78, the reduction made by the state, we have $49,580.73 more for public purposes than last year pro viding the rate remains the same. .

There have been many successful ones. Last year's fair was a successful one. But the officials are prompt to assure us that the one just over, was ahead in many if not all ways of last year's fair, and indeed one of the better ever held in the history of the asso ciation The weather was ideal and, maybe on account of .the weather spirit ran high. Most everything that goes to make Up a fair was in evidence, but there were some things noticeably absent. The small boy was there, the weak lemonade, the vari-colored toy ba loons, the ubiquitous peanut, the un speakable fortune-teller and the mer maid; these, aye, and more, but .un less we failed in vision, there was one feature lacking. Feature, did we say? Yes, feature indeed. The one thing that really entitles, the yearly occasion to the name fair. . It was the merry-go-round. Did you see it ? we didn't. And we mourn. Those bril-liant-hued tigers with the rigid tails. The lions with the woody mains. The oaken pony and chestnut deer. What a flood of memory was turned awry when in meandering about the grounds this familiar entertainment was not to be found, nor even its con comitant, the orchestrion. ' However, our sorrow was in a measure allayed Wednesday noon when there was wafted td our ears the reminiscent strains of 'Annie Rooney," delivered from a hand-organ operated by a venerable lady who has lived beyond the allotted span, and who very likely has seen better days. , The exhibit of cattle, while not as large, as was expected, nevertheless was of a very high order. No finer array of hogs was ever seen at the Medina fair. In the art hall the ex hibits were not numerous but iwere exceptionally attractive. The ball game Wednesday between Medina and Spencef resulted in a vic- I tornfor Medina in a score of 9 to ,5.; lifx: giuiie w inursaay Between jjver- pbol and Bennetts Corners was won by Liverpool in 'a score of ll'To 67" Wednesday's races resulted as fol lows: In the 2:30 trot, General Fremont, from Ravenna, won first money; Bell- wood, from Litchfield, second; Sgier Direct, third.
