Do Not Want to Inflict
The news that tho citizens of
Cuyahoga Falls had carried their
councilman ic troubles to Probate
court has caused no little surprise
JsmongUhe Inhabitants of the village.
Public isjritimcnt seoins to bo di
vided nn&n the matter and it Is
(reasonable to suppose that the hear
ing before Probate Judge Anderson.
TOiIch Is set for Friday, will bo holly
" i contested.
-, i The information filed in the Pro
bate office charges D wight Shumway,
a member of tho villagp councIl,with
malfeasance in office. The complaint
alleges that Mr. Shumway has been,
unlawfully interested in the profits
o certain work for the corporation;
that he has worked 7J dnyq at
$1.50 per day under "William Robin
son or S. G. Swigart, and gotiis pay
from tho city treasurer upon Robing
son's bill, duly -approved by thai
itrectmfnlTtcc.tif -which Shum-
" way Is chaftmunthatbcijwciS Jaiy
5 and August 2 the following item
' "To rodman C days at $ 1.50, $0 00";
and that between Augusts and Sept.
2 this item was allowed: "To 5 days
as rodman at $1 50 per day, $7,50i'
It Is also claimed"thaton or about
July 6, 1530, said Dwight Shumway
while acting as Councilman as afore
said con pi ol w.'th, one Vm. Robin
son to defraud aid village towit:
That said Dwight Shumway did
agree to and with tho said Wm. Rob
inson that he would uso his influ
ence to secure tho employment and
retention in the office of Civil Engi
neer of said village, the said Win.
Robinson at a salary of $125 per
month, in consideration that the
said Wm. Robinson would pay the
said Dwight Shumway the sum of
$25 per month so long as the said
Wm. Robinson was retained in said
office; and persuant to said unlaw
ful agreement and conspiracy the
said Dwight Shumway on July 5,
1300, influenced and persuaded the
other members of the village Coun
cil to votcior said Wm. Robinson.'1
These charges aie the result of the
controversy over tho street improve
ments in Cuyahoga Falls, which has
hungfiro so long. Tho proceedings
are brought in a mild form, the citi
'zons of the village not wishing to
impose a heavy ponalty. While
more drastic measures might have
been taken'the people of Cuyahog.i
Falls seek only to have Mr. Shum
way removtd from office, should
their accusations be sustained.
What Mr. Howo Say;.
A Deiiocbat reporter went to the
Falls Tuesday night. The gentle
men whoso names nppoar upon the
complaint; were reticent about tho
Mr. Minor H. Howe said: "I was
a member of the Investigating Com
mittee appointed to look into the af
fairs of Mr. Shumway and Mr. Rob
inson. Mr. Shumway refused tocomo
before the Committeo and we were
powerless to compel him to do so.
We have simply taken steps to con
duct tho examination with tho aid of
Trobate court. Since bis term as
Councilman began Mr. Shumway
has acted a3 street commissioner
and money hai been paid out and
our streets are not Improved."
Mayor Fclmy's Statement.
ITayor Felmy was alio seen by tho
reporter and he briefly related the
late s'trcet improvement trouble,
which was published in the Demo
crat when it occurred.
The Mayor said: "Mr. Shumway
has been advised by both myself
and Solicitor Prior at different times
that ha was proceeding in an illegal
way, but lie failed to heed our ad
vice. Ho would not rnpear beforo
the Investigating Committeo, and
the citizens thought it time to "begin
ouster proceedings. Wo do not de
sire to impose a flue, which at the
least is qulto severe In case of con
viction, but only ask to havo him
Mr. Shumway Confidcp!.
Mr. Shumway was seen at his
home on Third street In Cuyahoga
Fall by thojreporter, .He said, "Per
haps I ought not to say much now. I
can see back of it all a, great big
scheme. I have always worked for
the good of. the village and have
been foremost In improving the
town. I have lived here 03 years
and am serving vaj fourth year in
the council. My torm will expire
next April. T had calculated to re
tire at that time, but perhaps I may
run again. I shall demand a jury
trial and they will And that they
have not got me out yet."

respectively, dating back to the be

Clerk Shirer said the minutes

Gibbons wanted to know why this

. Dr. Reed made a motion to cover
his point, but as the legality dat

The announcement by Chairman

Mr. Slabaugh rotorted: "I'll take
the chances on that."
The question of holding back the
teachers' salaries after the regular
payment day was discussed. Dr.
Reed asked by whoso authority it
had been done. Mr. Frese explained
by saying that tho Finance commit
tee had been criticized for paying
out money before being so authorized
by the Board.
Mr. Kelly moved that the clerk
make out an estimate for salaries and
present it to the Finance committee
ia time to be allowedly theBoard.to
comply with the regular rule. This
would havo necessitated making the I
estimate Tuesday night.
Mr. Slabaugh gave notice that he
could not support tho motion:
".There is no necessity for it," said
he "The teachers should practice
such rules of economy as to carry
them from one pay day to another.
The great maiority of teachers in
Ohio ard not paid until the term is
