Alliance, O., Sept. 30. The result of
tho service board meeting to be hold
Monday forenoon will be watched with
interest by tho citizens of Alllanco as
at that time Is to come up the question
of ousting Superintendent John Bra
chor of the city water works. At Fri
day's meeting of the board, two of
tho three members voted In favor of
a resolution asking Mr. Bacher to re
sign. The superintendent .however,
will not comply with the demad,
claiming that the board cannot re
movo him without cause as his office
comes under tho civil service system.
No charges of any kind have been
filed against Mr. Bracher. He has tak
en counsel with good legal talent and
will fight the case to a finish.
The question of passing upon the
bids recently received for two new
boilers for the water works plant will
also come up for action at the meet
ings. It will bo remembered that
when other bids were received some
time ago and tho board by a vote of
two to one decided to award the con
tract to the Wickes Boiler company,
although It was claimed that tne bid
of tho Sterling Boiler company was
lower, an Injunction was taken out
to stop the board from awarding the
contract to the Wickes people. At tho
last bidding, the Sterling company did
not fllo a bid, it being said the specifi
cations were such that this company
could not enter their makes of boiler.

AND LOAN COMPANY
Of the Winter Scries of Plays by St
Peter's Dramatic Club Good
Tho first production of the season's
series of plays to be given by the St
Peter's Dramatic club was put on at
St. Cecelia hall Sunday evening with
a record-breaking attendance. Tho ti
tle of the piece is "A Noble Outcast,"
a southern drama In tour acts. Under
the direction of Rev. Zleholf the char
acters took their parts in a manner
that would do credit to many so-called
professionals and coupled with tho
beautiful scenery and stage effects
made it by far the best they have over
produced. The piece Is by no means a
light production and has been played
on the road by professional companies
In the audience were several mem
bers of the "PIff, Paff, Pouf ' company,
one of whom formerly was in a cast
that played "A Noblo Outcast," and
who spoke In a highly complimentary
manner of their endeavors.
This club was organized five years
ago and is composed of tho beat am
ateur talent in the city, several of
whom, by long practice, have shown
possibilities for professional work.
As Is their custom, the play will
be put on again this evening and an
other large attendance is expected.
The proceeds go to the -St. Peter's
church and over $800 has beon mado
since their organization.
New York milk dealers propose to
raise the price, to Induce producers to
