Bryan, Si cretary da aug 1-8 wk aug 5-12 It would seem that President Cleveland ought to know by this time that this is a Democratic administration. Several Democratic gentlemen have so said, since the 4th of March. And Mr. Hendricks lias said that they were correct. Dr. Newman's Mt. McGregor memorial address upon Gen. Grant is praised even by papers that evidently dislike the doctor. The glimpses it gives into the hero's inner life, are -such as no other speaker is so well fitted to afford. Major Armstrong and the Cleveland Plain Dealer want to know whether a Republican postmaster is to be retained at Cleveland under a Democratic administration, ajid if so, they propose to know why. So, Mr. Cleveland, you may as well prepare to stand and deliver. New York city papers boast of the millions of money that will be left behind in Gotham by the mjuriads of visitors attracted by the Grant funeral ceremonies. Meanwhile the Grant "monument movement in the metropolis languishes, and her millionaries and other people hang on to their pocket-books with a grip peculiar to the greed of the most grasping great city on the American continent. If the !New Yorkers put into the Grant monument fund only a small per centage of their revenues on Saturday from renting windows and doorsteps to see the funeral procession, it will probably be more than the wealth of that city will contribute toward the monument they want the rest of the country to build for them. For unadulterated meanness in such mat' ters the metropolis takes the palm from all other American citie3. St. John in Georgia supported Local Option and opposed partisanship in prohibition. If he was an honest man he would pursue the same policy in every Northern Republican State that he did in a Southern and Democratic State. This would only be the com monest decency and simplest fair ness, and if he should pursue such a course, all complaint against him would subside and all suspicion of his motives would be set at rest. The query naturally suggests itself to readers of Cleveland's sharp letter to a Cincinnati Democrat, How many offices has this "reform" President filled on the strength of recommendations like that which the Cincinnati man signed ? Is a Democratic administration going about the "reform" of .he public service by appointing to jffiee men whose unfitness for public place is notorious, and known best of all to the men who sign their petitions 'i The talk of tinkering the Ohio Re publican platform is foolish and origin ates in Democratic quarters, while as -cribing the desire in that direction to Senator Sherman does that gentleman an injustice that might naturally be xnected from the enemies of Kepubii canism. One correspondent, speaking of Sherman's alleged anxiety "to have a weak spot repaired m the platform McKinley made, says: Tt The ia not th best of feel ing between Sherman and McKinley, ..i.w -and t htt (Vmurpssman has Sen atorial aspirations also. He may resent .any interference with his platform." JJosh! is the proper comment upon such nonsense. Th civil service commission throws a crumb of comfort to Hendricks by giving his Indianapolis Postmaster, Aauila Jones, an easy letting down. The commission say in substance that Mr. Jones was ignorant of the amount of civil service reform there Tpallv was about the administration under which he served and that when be said the bad words attributed to him concerning civil service rules he reull v didn't mean all he said. They ay that Jones has now found out what the rules are and will try and steer clear of "political discrimination in the future, like the good little man -t-.hev believe him to be. It is as if the commission had said: "Go to your seat 'Quilly, and don't let me hear another naughty word from yon about Georgie Pendleton." has led them into the meanest and moat ghoulish form of larceny deserve to be punished like any common thief Some of them have even been mean enough to steal from Dr. Douglas': coat pocket the slips upon which Gen Grant wrote some of his last notes to his physician papers which money could not have tempted the venerable doctor to part with. He will be marked man who ever dares exhibit these invaluable mementoes. REFLECTIONS AND SUUQES-TIONS. Upon this day which the American people are making a Sabbath sacred to their silent soldier, it is appropriate to note as best we may some of the char acteristic things in the life of "The old Field Marshal immortal," that from them may be gathered hints of the true strength of his character, in order that the fire ot patriotic devo tion and service, which burned in him so clearly and wisely, may be Inspired in many other minds. First we note that love for his country controlled Gen. Grant's conduct in a remarkable degree. It moved him in the very out break of the war to hasten to offer his services to the Government in anv ca pacity where the education it had given to him could be used in helping to save its imperilled life. This one act puts him far above every man who forswore his allegiance to the United States to join the enemies banded to gether for the Nation's destruction. And the greater and better and wiser that they were, the deeper that part of their offense, which is forever beyond forgiveness. It is this that made the very virtues of Robert E. Lee, Tnomas Jackson, Jefferson Davis and all the rest of the oath-breakers, their heaviest condemnation. Grant, too, was a pri vate citizen, whose retirement from the publ;c service was practically not his act but that of the government, absolv ing him from his allegiance, lint no such quibble uttered his clear mind and honest heart. And no foolishness about his State confused his ideas of duty. It was the Nation, not theSta'e, that he sought to servo, and if Illinois had no place for him, then Ohio might have, but entor the Union aimy he would, and he did, and this day crowns what was that day bri:-in. Speaking of Capt;':u Grant's with drawal from "the l-l army," it directs attention to circumstances of peculiar honor to him, when all things are taken into account. That it was due to drink appears to be the blunt truth, however much sugar-coated. But perhaps that very fact put Grant in training for the greater responsibilities soon to come upon him. And who can tell what his true wife was to him and to his upbuilding in thoso darkest days of life, when he took wood into St. Louis for sale in a wagon drawn by a mule and an ox, and when he stayed in the little leather store at Galena for lack of any thing better to do. Gen. Longstreet hears witness as to greeting Grant in St. Louis at this period and he had stopped drinking. Gen. Fremont gives the same evidence as to Grant, when the latter first reported to the Pathfinder" for duty at St. Louis at the beginning of the war, and Gen. O. O. Howard says the same-tbing about the General, when they tented together in the Chattanooga campaign in the Fall of '63. It is due to General Grant to say that the evidence is that a glass of wine affected him more than bottle might many another id "in, but is still more due to him to say that he has the glory of having conquered himself, the greatest glory a man can have and a glory open to the humblest. Per haps it was those years of retirement from the world, of struggle for self-mastery, that ripened him for the mighty tasks reserved for him to do. And what encouragement there is for . every tempted man, for every wife sharing such a sorrow, iu this Provi dential career of which the St. Louis Qlobe-Demotrat has well said: "Let the novelist of to-day tell the story of Grant's life;of the unpromising career at WestPoint; the apparent lack of individuality in the army; the fail ure as a farmer; the lack ot success as business agent; the story of the days at the tannery, when half clerk, half porter, he seemed to have relinquished both past and future let him tell the tale of the succeeding 25 years: how the hitherto luckless man rose step by step, with a rapidity almost be general of the army, twice Pres'ient, then for a year the honored guest and associate of the greatest monarchs or the earth; then let him reduce the hero to pover ty, and at his death honor him with a national funeral, and the book would be laughed at as too wildly improbable to be worth cocrrieration." Is it not wonderful, beyond the wild est dreams? Who imagined in the arly days of the war, when this and that man was looked upon as the hero of the hour, that it should yet be written of a clerk in a leather store in an Illinois town Surely no otnor earthly career of uninspired man can Icompare with that of Ulysses S. Grant." And may we not justly conclude that this matter of which we have spoken, was of immense importance in the years so full of great deeds that were before him, when God would call him from his obscurity to "be the military saviour of a great people and to take rank with the chief captains in the history of warfare, and then to be President of the United States? But other characteristics of the man as remarkable, none more so than the fact that he never used profane language and that his lips were free from impure speech. If the lads upon every street in America only learn this much from to-day s memorial services, it will be of untold value to the land Grant loved and for which he risked his life. If this hero, honored by the world, and with all the responsibilities that were upon him, could get along without swearing and without nasty talk, why cannot the youth and the manhood of his country, learn to do likewise ? Another peculiarity about Gen Grant and his wife was refreshing and ought to be encouraging to better things In these days of "shoddy" and snobs, when young chits of girls aie rained at home to snub everybody without good clothes and dashing man ners, xnai is, mat, in weir time of prosperity, when they were at the very apex of popu larity and of power, they never despised, much less forgot the "plain people" of their own kindred, or even of their old acquaintance and former homes. There is altogether too much pinchbeck "pride" among the AmerL can people in certain classes, that puffs them up with the least success until ashamed even of their own fathers and mothers because they are "not stylish enough." There was none of this meanness about U. S. Grant atd even the "nepotism of which his enemies made so much in the bitterness of political strife, was a credit to him, when we look at it from the standpoint that it was a practical exhibition of his warm feeling3 for his family and the friends of hij obscurity. Other great qualities were his for giving and self-forgetting spirit and his magnanimity, of which Dr. Newman speaks so eloquently. In this discourse, too, which we are glad to print in full in this memorial number of The Beacon, the great General's inti mate friend makes plain other things in the character of our common country's hero, that reveal in a new light the inner life of the old Field Marshal, "the silent soldier," "the sashed and helmeted Sphinx." The tenderness and depth of love for his wife and his family; the unex ampled heroism of his toil for them on his dying bed; the sweetness and sincerity, the simplicity and strength of his religious faith, form a picture such as the world has rarely seen exhibited by those who have been raised to lofty position, and the story of them will be told while human speech lasts. These thiugs touch the hearts of all men and win their : love, and so long as our land has in training in its humblest homes such men of ster" ing virtues as Lincoln and Gaiiield and Grant to be called to the front In the hour of need, just so long and only so long "government of the people for the people and by the people shall not perish from the earth." There is no need to commend the ex cellence of the selection of George W. Crouse as a candidate for State Senate, to the people of Akron and Summit Countv. They have canvassed his merits too often and endorsed him too emphatically, to necessitate any state ment to his home constituents of his record and his worth. The unparallel ed response in his favor by the Repub licans of his own city and county at the close of a contest unsurpassed n earnestness, shows that his neighbors know George W. Crouse and like him, and is an t arnest that they will stand by him at the polls as they did at the primaries. Past differences of preference and of opinion can now be lo3t sight of in hearty zeal for the common cause, and determined efforts for complete and sweeping Republican triumph. Whilo Mr. Grouse's election i a foregone conclusion, there should also be a set purpose from the first to make his majority and that of every man upon the entire Republican ticket ust as large a possible, for its moral effect upon nnr party associates throughout this State and upon Repub licans everywhere.. The programme set up for the uem- cratic State convention at Columbus Aug. 19 and 20, js thus outlined by W. A. T." in the Cincinnati Post: Hoadly and as many more of the old ticket as possible will be renominated; Judge Thurman will be named for the United States Senate, and Cleveland's civil 8ervics reform will be en dorsed. The McLean plan was to bend every nerve to give the convention an anti-administration complexion and to get a spoils and protective tariff platform. That scheme miscarried and now McLean and the Kids are making a strike for the Democratic State committee. Tney have been sys tematically left out in the distribution Ohio spoils and they propose to squeeze the administration into terms, j "When the McLean gang secure control of the campaign committee they will begin on a masterly piece of wrecking. If they cannot get recognition from the administration in the appointment of Kids to Federal places in Ohio, they will so mismanage the campaign that Democratic defeat will be sure and emphatic. It is in short one of those delicate rule or ruin schemes in which the McLean crowd are so conspicuously fertile. It is a tragedy in which the Republican party will take the role of chorus. One aim of the new Ohio law pro viding that all executions shall be held in tho Penitentiary, was to secure the greatest possible privacy iu hangings and to reduce to a minimum the evil of wide-spread and sensational publi cations of every trivial detail of the last days of the condemned man. These nauseating details have informed the reader how many eggs the murderer ate at his last breakfast ; the size of the new boots the jailer had made for the prisoner's trip from cell to gallows; whether he twiched nervously or only gazed stolidly into space as the rope was being tightened around his worth less neck and so on for quantity. But with all its provisions tor privacy the new Ohio law was outwitted by three newspaper men at the hanging of Wagner, the Morrow county murderer, at Columbus last Friday. The provision of the law permitting he condemned man to have present three personal friends" at his execution wa3 used in this case for the smugg ling in of three newspaper men. They persuaded the poor craven who was to furnish the exhibition, to sign a card designating them as the "friends1 named by the law and tne result was even a more minute portrayal of death agonies than often attends a public execution. The effects of these de tailed publications are not whole some. It is only a prurient curiosity that craves such reading, and the day has come when people should be taught better employment than poring over the horrors of a fellow mortal's last torment. The aims of the new Ohio law are good, but the Columbus experi ence shows that an amendment is needed to prevent any stretching of the "three friends" clause that would in clude newspaper men, whose only friendship for the condemned grew out of his opportunity for furnishing them a morsel of sensation. Coventry. Coirespondence of the Boccon. - Aug. 7. A new brick school house for District No. II, is being built. A. A. Brewster, is building a barn, Charles Adams is visiting relatives in Pittsburgh. Philip Bock's horse was knocked stiff by lightning a few days ago, while hitched in front of tne Misses II. and L. Allyn's house. Mrs. Hannah Clark is very sick. Zic Stilweil is going to Council Bluffs to visit relatives and will be gone sev eral weeKs. The Street Commissioner should take a look at South Sptcer Street. INVENTIVE ACTIVITY.

Gai'liek. a millwright at the Akron Milling Company's mills, has in vented an automatic grain dryer winch is meeting with much favor. The drawings, which were executed bv D. G. Church, have been presented to the Akron Milling Company, who ordered two of the machines to be placed in their mills as soon as they could be ouirc. ine aryer is to be bricked up eight feet wide, two feet thick and as high as desired. Heat is created by gasoline lights and tho grain is dried on an endless belt which carries it from top to bottom. An Inventive Akron Fireman's Improvement In Boxus. Frank Loomis, the chief engineer of the Akron Fire Department, ' has iust been granted a patent on a lire alarm telegraph box, and will soon receive his papers. Mr. Loomis has had three of these boxes, Nos. fit, 02 and 63. in the Sixth Ward, in operation for some time, but one of them was tried in actual use for the first time last week for the Akron Stoneware Works fire, when it worked very satisfac torily, the alarm coming very distinctly. The b5xes are a great improvement over the old ones. All that has to be done to send in an alarm, is to open the door of the box whicit strilies the gongs in all the en gine houses in the city. An effort will be made to have the city provided with these boxes. Mr. Loomis has also arranged asepe- rate telephone system for the engine houses and residences of chief's and as sistant chiefs. Any one of which can be called up independent of the central telephone station. i'ouNGSTOwNEiis Inspecting Akron Ligiits. Jamej Squires, P. D. Cotter, R. Montgomery, James Kennedy, J. D. Porter, B. O. Eddy, J. A. Woods, Joliu Tomlins, J. C. Malooey, A. B. Brown-lee, George Welsch, R. E. Daniels and George Summers, members of the Youngstown City Council, and D. M. Simpkins, city clerk, and J. M. Reno, city engineer, were in the city last night to inspect the working of Akron s electric light system. The visitors were taken about the city by . A. D. Swan, of Kent, B. C. ' Herrick and Dr. A. M. Cole, three of - the incorporators of the Akron Electric Construction and Supply Co., and shown the illuminating powers ot tho 1UO Thomson-Houston arc lights suspended over Akron street corners. 1 hey were emphatic in expressing their satisfaction at the abundance; and quality of the light furnished. The new Akron incorporation has submitted a proposition to the Youngs town uouneu to light tnat city bv the Thomson-Houstou system, with 125 lights of a nominal power of 2,000'can-dles, for $8,750 a year, Youngstown is now lighted by gas and gasoline at an annual expense ot about $8,500. The visitors arrived on last evening s 0:48 train, N. Y., P. & O., and stopped at the Empire House. Thev returned at 8:39 this morning. Senatorial Nominations Well Liked. ralnesville Telegraph. The nominations at Warren yester day, of Messrs. Ford, of Geauga, and Jrouse, or Murumit, ror state senators, will give very general satisfaction to the Republicans of the district. It is a strong ticket. Lake would have liked the nomination of Mr. Tryon, but failing in this, is well pleased with the re- Aslitabu'a Sentinel. To-day we add to the ticket which we believe will be elected in October the names of Hon. George W. Crouse, ot Akron, and Hon. George H. Ford, of Geauga, as candidates for Senators for the 24th and 2(5th consolidated Senatorial districts. These gentlemen were nominated by the convention held in Warren on Tuesday, which was as harmonious a body as it has been our good fortune to attend. The first named gentleman is a stranger to most of our people, but tne introduction ne gave himself in his modest and well timed speech of acceptance, after nomination, made all hearts warm toward him. and we are perfectly willing to accord him our confidence and hearty support. In the peison ot Hon. Ueorge 11. i ord, of Geauga, we meet a well known gen tleman in this district. He has represented Geauga County for the past two years, and his family are as closely identified with his county as its name In tms representation the district is safe and the interests of all parties will be faithfully guarded. We believe with this ticket in the field the Repub lican party will give the State ticket an increased majority and will thus add to the Grand Total in October. In connection with this subject we must admit that we were disappointed that the candidate presented by the county failed to be nominated. But we a glad to sav he is too large a man, and too well rounded out in his ideas to let the defeat rankle in his breast, and he will continue to be as he has been in the past, the active and con stant Republican he has always been. Pkesident Lewis Miller. Chautauqua Assembly Herald. The program never seems complete when Mr. Miller is not present to pre side at some of the exercises. President of the C. L. S. C, and l'resident of the University Board, he is anxious ly looked for by all Chautauquans who are familiar with his presence and manajje.tnent. He and Dr. Vincent are inseparable in the history of this move ment. It is a positive loss to the Chau tauqua public that Mr. Miller's im mense business interests press so heav ily upon him in the Summer season that he cannot break away to give more time to this enterprise. The fact remains, however, that every person who is benefited or whose pleasure is increased by Chau tauqua, is a debtor to Lewis Miller. Though he may not be here every day, yet his thought touches the wnoie circle or our proceedings, while his hand is helpfulness itself. Mr. Miller's wife and several members of his family came here early in the season, and Mr. Miller arrived Saturday evening, xney may be round m then cottage on the old Auditorium. Canal Fulton Signal on the Lang- Williams foot race says: "Lang seemed 1 to be more than a match for Tommy and beat him some nine yards in the quarter mile time M seconds, with a heavy track, it having rained the greater part of the day. The darkey who has been training Williams for some three weeks past seems, from all appearances, to have been too sharp for all the sports of Fulton; he roped them in fine style. You need not use much argument to convince some of the boys who lost heavily that there is truth in the adage, 'a fool and his money soon part.' It ought to be a lasting lesson. It is said by some of the knowing ones that Akron parties went home with about $600 of Lawrence township money, which ought to have been used in a more legitimate way." The "huckleberry" season is on and vet there are no sigrrunWco-- FASTEST TRAIN IN OHIO IS THE COLUMBUS-AKRON EXPRESS ON THE C, A. & C. N. Y., P. & O. MOVEMENTS. Impoktant C, A . & C. Connections Arrangements have iust been com pleted, whereby the Cleveland, Akron & Columbus and the New York, Pennsylvania & Ohio Railroads will join interests in passenger business. Train 5, west twunu on ine jn. x., l ic o. will here after connect with train 2 southbound on the C, A. & C, which leaves here at 10:30 a.m. for Columbus, thus giving tne js. 1 ., l ix, u. and Erie a direct route to Columbus and other important points not heretofore enjoyed In addition ' to this, beginning on Monday next the O, A. & C. northbound Columbus express will arrive here in time to connect with theN. Y.', 1. & O. east bound express, which leaves Akron at 3:35 p. m., giving the C, A. & C. direct connection with New York and New England in general. and also making sure of all Lake Shore connections at Cleveland, both east and west. To make this connection the time of the Columbus express must be changed, as will be done. It is important and interesting to know that this Columbus Akron ex press train over the C, A. & C. is the fastest schedule train in Ohio, making the run from Columbus to Akron, a distance of 131 miles in three hours and 55 minutes, including six stops. This train yesterday made ths run from Warwick to this citv. 13 miles, in iust 16 minutes. This shows that the C, A. & C. Road, under its present man agement, is in most excellent condition and that their train system is arranged in the most satisfactory manner. But the management are determined to do still better as is shown by the fact that an order has just been placed by that company for another 1,000 tons of steel rails, which'are to be used in general repairs and in perfecting the entire line for the safest and most rapid tran sit. The arrangement referred to in yes terday's Beacon, by which the N. Y., P. & O. is to get info Springfield. O. goes into effect Sunday, according to a telegram received at the N. Y.. P. & O. oilice m this city to-day. N. Y., P. & O. trains will run on to the I., B. & W. track by mens of a switch which has recently been constructed five miles this side of Springfield; will run into Spiingfield over I , li. & W. iron and then return to their own iron bv a switch just outside of the city. I., B. & W. and N. Y., P. & O. run closely parallel from Urbana to Shattuc junc- i.ion, where the switch on to the former has been built. Springfield Qlobe-Bepublic : Alter many days of consultations and parleys between the I., B. & W. and Erie officials, the deal by which the N. Y., P. & O. trains run through the city on the I., B. & W. track, has been conclu 'ed, and the local officials have arranged the time card, which they hope to have in effect by next Sunday. It is doubtful, however, if the arrangements can be made so that the N. Y P. & O. can come through at that time. The stations named in the new time card, which is liow on the press, are Shattuc, Engine House, Springfield, West Springfield aud Durbin. The latter is the name of the new station at the crossing' about five miles west of town, wueretne jn . x ., p. .to o. trams re turn to their own traSk. All trains of both roads between Shattuc and Durbin will be under the control of the I.. B. & W. train dispatcher here. McHenry Beaten Again N. Y, P. & O. Lease May. be Dropped. From Friday's Dally Beacon. A Pittsburg dispatch says that it was expected that the opinion of the court upon the application of certain Holders or securities or the New l ork. Pennsylvania & Ohio Railroad to have the company taken out of the hands of Receiver Dick would probably be hied to-day and it would grant the petition for the receiver's removal. Tho case will be taken from the Crawford court. the receiver will be dismissed and the United States circuit court will tnke jurisdiction of the cause. Judge lle- Kennan was in Pittsburg yesterday and had a consultation with Judge Acheson on the case. The affidavits on file were examined at length and a conclusion was reached. J udge Acheson is writ- ng the opinion of the court. It is un derstood that the court will hold that there was no legal reason for the appointment of a receiver in the Crawford County case. This will leave the road in the hands of the trustees. I The published statement .of Erie Road earnings for n ne months ending June 30, show N. Y., P. & O. earnings of $2,500,176 and expenses of $2,877,350, making a net loss or $317,174 for the nine months. The Cleveland Leader commenting on the above says: "Thus the lease of the N. Y ., P. x O. by the Erie entails a net loss of over $4CO,000 per year. At this rate in all probabil- ty the Krie will be forced to drop the N. Y., P. & O. The Erie is earning at the rate of about $4,000,000 per year above running expenses, which, after allowing for rentals, taxes and repairs, will tail nearly $3,ljo,ooo short ot paying interest on its bonds. Unless its bondholders are more forbearing than most oonduoiders are it is only a ques tion of time when it will strike its normal condition and need a receiver, as its means of borrowing have long since been exhausted. When the Erie went into a receiver's hand3 the last time it found a way of getting rid of its leases, and if a receiver is again appointed it will likely do the same thing. The Erie will not retain the N. x .. P. He O. any longer than it is for its interest to do so, and some day the stockholders of the N. 1 ., P. .v O. will hnd their prop erty thrust back to them when they are not looking tor it. Local Railroad Notes. Of 400 Little Miami railroad em ployes examined, seven were color blind and five had defective eyesight. Pittsburg, Fort Wayne & Chicago limited averaged 61 miles per hour between Crestline and Fort Wayne last Monday. Coshocton county has granted a free right of way over all it3 highways to the Mt. Vernon, Wheeling & Coshocton nauroaa. State Board of Equalization has as sessed value of Valley Railroad $500 per mile for the main line, which is 75.4o miles long. W. II. Pettibone. ex-superintendent of Chicago & Grand Rapids Road, has been made general superintendent 01 1. u. x, bi. Li., vice E. P. Murray, re signed. "Officially denied" that Wm. Clem ents, formerly master of transportation of B. & O. has been appointed general manager of New York, Lake Erie & Western . One of tne most recent stories about li,rie is that negotions are pending be tween that company and the Nickel Plate for a through line to Chicago in opposition to the Jewett interests in the Chicago & Atlantic. Plain Dealer: No official announce ment of the fact has been made, but there is no longer room for doubt that the reorganized management expect to widen the guage of the Cleveland & Canton road to the standard width. At least very convincing circumstantial evidence to that effect is now attaina ble. In the natural course of events General Manager Briggs has found it necessary to make various renewals, and it is a simple matter of fact that the material ordered is mostly for stand ard guage, sooner or later and not very much later to be such. Among the recent purcnases are iu.uuu standard guage ties, which are about two feet longer and cost about one-fourth more than the narrow guage variety, which would certainly suffice if a change were not contemplated.
