its eye on the Northern Ohio road,

If these rumors prove to have suf

that the Erie is to takea step toward

will have not alone the short line to

will have direct connection out of
Cleveland to Uhicago, which it does
not enjoy at the present time. The

it is burdened to the ground with

The Northern Ohio runs from Ak
ron to Delphos, and there it joins
the Clover Leaf. If the Erie owned
both of these lines the connection
would be made at Delphos, and then
the joined roads would continue and
would connect with the present main
line of the Erie at Ohio City. This
would throw both Toledo and Cleve

this city and Marion the plan would
be to parallel the Big Four to New

Arrested As He Was Leaving Mar

A special from "Wooster gives the
following information relative to the
troubles of Jack Crile,the well-known
South Akron saloonist:
A sensation was caused Saturday
evening when John WT. Crile, an Ak
ron saloonkeeper, was arrested here
just as he was leaving the home of
Mrs. Jesse Marshall. He was
charged with loitering and carrying
concealed weapons. Mr. Marshall at
the time was in Akron getting evi
dence against Crile, whom he sus
pected was paying clandestine visits
to his wife, and learned that Crile
had gone to Wooster, where he regis
tered as J. R. Lilley, Akron. The
charge for carrying concealed weap
ons was withdrawn and he pleaded
guilty to loitering. Mayor Smith
fined him $50 and costs, which was
paid. Immediately after Sheriff Mc
Coy served Crile with a summons
for a $10,000 damage suit Marshall
brought against him for alienating
his wife's affections and breaking
up their home. Crile is .a married
