Anti-Thomas Mam
Placed on the Investi
gating Committee.
This Has Caused Con
siderable Comment.
All Meetings Will b'e Behind
Closed Doors.
First Session Held Friday " Nights
Members Mum. '
The personnel of the committee
which was appointed by President
C. T. Iuman, of the Board of Educa
tion, to make the investigation au
thorized by the resolution passed at
the meeting Tuesday night, has
caused much comment.
The resolution was introduced by
Mr. Kelley and it was generally ex
pected that he would be made chair
man of the committee. Instead of
that, however, Mr. C. B. Raymond,
who is considered one of Prof.
Thomas' warm friends, was placed
at the head. Mr. Kelley and Mr:
Frese, who took the lead in bringing
about the investigation, were not
even made members of the commit
tee. Perhaps this fact would not
have attracted so much attention, if
it were. not for the fact that Dr. F. C.
Heed was named as a member. He
is generally considered to be very
friendly, to Prof. Thomas. A nephew
of Dr. Beed is now a teacher "in ' the
High school. His appointment was
recommended by Prof. Thomas.
This may not influence the action of
Dr. Beed, but those who are anxious
to have the investigation a thorough
one would rather not have Dr. Reed
a member.
J. T. Diehm lias heretofore been a
Thomas supporter. He is another
member of the committee. S. P.
Hartzell and W. E. Slabaugh, the
remaining m'emb'ers of the commit
tee, arc said to be neutral.
A number of citizens expressed
surprise Friday that Mr. Imnan had
not given at least one of the anti
Thomas men a place "on the commits
tee. By doing so, nil suspicion of a
whitewash investigation would have
been removed.
The investigating committee will
conduct all meetings behind closed
doors. All testimony submitted will
be guarded with the greatest se
crecy. A member of the Board said
Tuesday that no information will bo
furnished the people until the com
mittee's report is submitted.
The committee met Friday night,
A plan of procedure was adopted.

An informal joint meeting was
held by the County Commissioners,
the General Improvement Commit
tee of the City Council and the Presi
dent, Secretary and Municipal.Com
mittee of the Chamber of Commerce
with a view to determine the proper
lines of the annexation of the city's
The new proposed boundary leaves
the eastern boundary of city prac
tically as it is, annexes a portion of
land south of Hart allotment, an
nexes tp.e Steiner allotments on the
south of the city, placing the. control
of lands around Summit lake
with the city, extends the
western line of the city
from a point west of the Manchester
road, includes the partially
improved and allotted lands west of
the city running north along Fast St.
to a point north of West Market st.,
then easterly to Ohio canal to a line
west of Ely st., then northerly to in
clude that portion of North Hill al
ready built up. crossing Howard st.
beyond Chalker's Landing to a line
leading south across the east end of
Lods st. from which the present cor
poration line is followed to the
southeast corner of the city bound
aries. It is the desire of the im
provement committee to place this
line at.a point where the city has
been built and will naturally build
to during the next 20 years, it being
nearly that many years since the
last annexation took pla?e.
By this plan the farm lands in the
southeast and northwest, which
proved the stumbling blocks in pre
vious proposed annexation, have
been left out. As far as possible
without making a very irregular
line, vacant farm lands' lmv- boon-
left out, except where between two
built-up portions which it was de
sired to annex. Nearly all portions
included are partially built up, im
proved and allotted and their owners

Asked the Sheriff to Stop
the Show.
He Will Not Act Unless a Warrant Is
Issued to Him.
Sheriff Frank G. Kelly informed a
Democrat reporter Saturday that
ministers of the Evangelical Alli
ance had called on him Friday. .
They wanted him to arrest the
managers of the Lakeside casino
Sunday- if a performance was given.
He answered that he would not ar
rest them unless he was provided
with a warrant. While the preach
ers did not say anything further, it
is almost a foregone conclusion that
warrants will be issued. Should
such be the case, ft is said that bonds
will be furnished for air appearance
in court, hence the performance will
not be interrupted.

Tax Duplicate Will be
Larger This Year.
A Heavy Loss by the Settlement of
an Estate
The verbal reports maijo to Audi
tor Sisler by the various ward as
sessors, iudicates that there will be
a gain of from' $400,000 to $500,000 in
the city's tax duplicate.
The manufacturers have been or
dered to file their own returns. There
is a considerable increase in that de
partment. The assessors have add
ed considerably to other valuations.
The Second ward will show a de
crease. This is due to the settle
ment of the Cornell estate. Practi
cally all of this property is taken
away from Akron. Iiast year the
executors of the estate returned
$223,000. This year the valuation is
$25,000, a loss of $198,000. Aside from
that one loss there is a good gain in
the ward. In the townships it is
about even with 18SI8.
The original and the pioneer of the "Hot
Blast" is the Jahant Hot Blast Furnace. The

Established In 1881 One of the
Successful and Leading Firms
of Akron.
Nothing succeeds like success, but
honesty, integrity, fair and honorable
business dealings are necessary to
establish confidence, which in
variably brfngs success. This is true
and applies to the business career of
Mr. Nicholas A. Laskaris, who began
business June 11, 1831, in the frame
building, corner South Howard and
Cherry sts.
In this location, he built up an
enormous wholesale and retail trade,
but the recent fire and lack of
room and more modern equipment,
to conduct his constantly increasing
business; necessitated his providing
larger quarters.
The handsome, three-story, press
ed brick building now occupied at
No. 1G2 S. Howard st., is especially
adapted in every way to the business
of Mr. Lasknris. The interior ar
rangement and furnishings are ele
gant. The office, with gallery, is
fine and spacious. A metal ceiling
artistically decorated adds to the
general appearance.
The beautiful onyx soda fountain,
with fine oak canopy and French
plate mirrors, costing $1,500, is one
of the finest in the state. An invit
ing and pleasant feature is the ice
cream parlor, which is comfortably
and richly furnished. .The entire ar
rangement is up-to-date in every
One of the important departments
of the concern is foreign fruits,which
are purchased direct from the im
porters by car loads. Olive oil is al
so received direct from Sparta,
Greece, from the orchard owned by
Mr. Laskaris. Pure olive soap for
toilet use, is importe'd from Turkey
and a full line of other imported
goods is shown.
A large force is employed to manu
facture ice cream and candies, and is
under the direction of a candy and
ice cream maker direct from Paris,
whose skill and ability is unques
tioned. The machinery used in this depart
ment is the best and latest improved,

ing orders for both home and foreign
