According to tho law governing the
school board, that body Is out of ex
istence after tho first of January, tho
clerk being tho only officer to hold
over Into tho now year. Clerk Brlggs
acted as chairman, after last year's
business was completed, and thd elec
tion of officers was taken up, but this
reorganization did not get farther
than tho presidency. Momber Jacoby
was elected presldont on tho first bal
lot, receiving flvo voles.
Trouble started when the mombers
commenced balloting for the vice
presidency. The members formed
themselves Into two factions, three
favoring tPennul and thrco for Dlck
rrson and ten rounds of balloting did
not change their choice. Unable to
decide on a vice president, n clerk
uas the next offlcor to be elected
Members Hill and Pennoll received
tin cuual number of votes for flvo bal
lots. Member Guthery was compelled
to leave the meeting at this point to
llll another engagement, so It was de
cided to defer tho election until the
Cuptaln Hlchurdson, Major Mc.Mur
niy and Qwlterm.lHter.Sorgeun,
C'rcekbuum wore present at the meet
ing, seeking to obtain a lot, on which
to ere'-t a new armory, which tho
state has furnished $15,000 to build
providing the city donates tho slt
Captain Richardson explained the
plan of the structure and tho site
most desired Tho plans call for a
building 130 feet long, CO feet wldo
and two and one-half stories high,
containing the company's quarters,
rooms for veterans, and an auditor
ium larger than any In tho city which
may bo used by the citizens and tho
schools. It Is tho captain's idea to
form military classes among tho high
school students to Instill a martial
spirit Into tho younger generation
Either the lots to tho north or to the
south of tho high school building nre
the ones asked for by tho military
men. The question concerning tho
legality of such a transfer aroso and
It was learned tlmt other cities had
done the same, that the property had
been deeded to tho board of education
by Judge Bennett and, providing the
people favor such a. move, the board
Is at liberty to deed tho ground to the
state If they see fit.
The elevations in the armory plans,
drawn by Architect Scofleld, of Cleve
land, do not harmonize In any way
with tho present high school building
and would prove to be an architectural
monstrosity It the present plans are
followed. If tho plans could bo re
drawn to harmonize with the sur
rounding buildings, the proposed sites
would bo excellent places to erect such
a structure, tho city would be bene
fited and would be receiving a beau
tiful nddltlon to tho city buildings
Bccauso of the absence of one of

took for his subject "Prayer." His
text wus found in the twelfth verse
of tho sixth chapter of Luke. "All
night long ho prayed continually."
Rov. Rourko said:
"Tho essential things of prayer arc
not tho position, nor tho voice, nor
the manner. Three things must be
held In mind by him who prays. -First,
ho must reallzo that Cod Is all-wise;
second, that ho Is praying to ono of
supremo control; third, that Ood is
nigh unto us and is not afar off."

"Tho church will not do tho work
It should do until each mombol real.

things to bo done by tho porsonal

The county commissioners huve
been Informed upon the authority of
tho attorney general of tho state, that
tho action which they took In reduc
ing tho salaries of tho members of the
board of review for tho.clty, from live
dollars to $3.50 per day, was not reg
ular and that cannot stand.
A few days ago tho board of com
missioners determined to reduco the
pay of the members of tho board ot
review and without further ado made
the cut. No reason was given at tho
time for tho reduction. When asked
by a. member of tho board of review
why It had been done, tho commis
sioner stated that it had been con
sidered ever since tho quadrennial, ap
praisers for tho city had put up such
a kick when their sctlarlcs were fixed
at J3.no Instead of flvo dollars per
day as hud been expected. At that
tlmo the appraisers, pointed to the sal
ary which was being paid to tho
boards of rovlow members as proof
of their claim that tlvo dollars per day
was not out of reason, holding that
their services wero Just as valuable
to tho city and county us wero the ser
vices of tho members ot tho board of
rovlow. The matter had boon allowed
to drag along with tho commissioners,
with tho old salary prevailing for tho
members of tho board of equalization
or rovlow until a few days ago when
tho reduction was made.
Tho matter' was takciv up with the
state auditor by tho board of review
and County Auditor C. I Allen. Thu
statu auditor gavo tho board an opin
ion which was handed down by tho
attorney general In a parallel caso
which was decldod In tho courts some
tlmo ago. This opinion Is to tho ef
fect that tho board of commissioners
has the power to fix tho salaries of
tho members of tho board of rovlow
at tho beginning of each year and
that onco having fixed the salary for
tho year It cannot -bo changed during
the year. This Is In accordance with
tho rule which does not permit an
official's salary being Increased or de
creased during his term of office. Tho
opinion holds that tho salary of tho
board members was fixed at the time
they began work for tho year and that
It can neither bo raised nor lowered
until tlio tlmo for fixing tho salaries
for tho next year.
Some of tho members of tho board
of review held a confcrcnco, Monday,
with tho county commissioners and
presented tho matter to them with tho
result thut the order which was made
somo days ugo will .probably bo re
scinded and the board will bo per
mitted to draw tho salary of flvo dol
lars per day, at least until tho begin
ning of tho next yeur's work, In April
The county commissioners Monday
disclaimed all knowlcdgo of an error
which was alleged to havo been mado
by tho board of review and stated that
reports of that sort had no bearing
whatover upon tho action tuken by
them. They stated that thoy had met
with tho board of rovlow only onco,
when tho city and county boards .of
rovlow hold a short confcrcnco to do
tormlno what should bo dono with tho
land values In tho county and thut
they know nothing of tho manner in
which tho city board wus working
Thoy ulso dlsclulmed making tho
statement thut tho board of review
for tho city was making tho clorku
do all tho work while tho memborj
looked on. '
As bold a hold-up and robbery as
wiih oyer perpetrated In the wild west
in Its palmiest day was pulled' oft In
a W. Bower's Jewelry store, Just be
fore the noon hour today, when Rob

Mr. Bowers would return In a few
minutes. Tho fellow left tho storo and
was gono but a few minutes when he
returned. Miss Krause walked up to
tho show caso to wait upon him and
was confronted with a revolver shoved
into her face. The fellow said to her:
"Don't you scream, or I'll kill you
You go to that window and get mo
that tray of diamonds."
Miss Krause was mi taken by sur
nrlso that sho hardly realized what
sho was doing and ropllcd to his de-
"Why, man, whut arc you doing?"
Tho fellow still keening tho revolver
pointing directly In Miss Krauso's fuc
eamo around tho show caso and lorced
her to go to the window and get the
tray of diamonds und had them over
to him. Then ho darted out of the
storo and ran south to tho alley be
