Thfs time the Mas elllon & Northern Railway, TiompanyJ has been incorporated- to, buildi an electric line from Massflfoh to Akron via Turkeyfoot lake, a route oveV which the Northern Ohio secured right of way somo time ago and grad ed part of the road bed.

Speaker Cannon, who wants the people of this community to elect Ken nedy to congress, does not appear to have taken New York by storm on the occasion of his recent visit. The Pittsburg Dispatch in a telegram from the eastern metropolis says: "'Was Hearst ever in congress? I'll be if I ever saw very much of him,' remarked 'Uncle Joe' Cannon at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel today. "The speaker had Just got out of the bed in the suite of his friend, John W. Gates. He said he was feeling fine, considering the fact that he almost had his bones shaken out of his skin last night in an automobile ride to White Plains and back. "The editors of the Republican news papers of this city are not particular ly Joypus about the Injection of 'Un do Joe' into the campaign. The New York Press In a double-leaded editor ial today calls upon 'the Cannons, the Roots and the Cortelyous' to keep out of the local campaign. "In his speech at White Plains last night Mr. Cannon compared Bryan to a polecat and Hearst to a skunk. This sort of campaigning ia regarded as boomerang work in New York." It does not require a prophet to see that the people of this country are be ginning to place men of the stripe of4 Cannon where they belong and are not being hoodwinked by display of alleged verdancy, profanity and billingsgate by such trust chattels, for that is what Cannon is to all intents and purposes. The calling of people who are against the robbery of the many by the few, vile names is fast passing and the day will soon be when men of Can non's stripe will be relegated so far to the rear that their influence will be but a memory.
