T&ast Arcade Building:
.- Steinbacher's J
! No. 104 East Market Street.
Talked of an Arrest.
Result of the Sensational
Charges Made
Against Him by Mr. W.
Clarence Findley.
He Called up Chief of Police
The Affidavit Has Not. Been Filed
Another Meeting.
The heated controversy of Prof. It.
S. Thomas and W. Clarence Findley
at the High school Monday night
has created no end of excitement.
An exclusive account of this side
session of the investigating commit
tee was printed in Tuesday's Demo
crat. Mr. Findley's ire was
aroused because of certain state
ments which he alleged the superin
tendent had made. The lust named
denied the charges. Mr. Findley
thereupon told him point blank that
he was a "liar." After the meeting
of the investigating committee Prof.
Thomas called Chief of Police Har
rison by telephone. He asked what
-steps he could take to have a war
rant issued for the arrest of Mr.
Findley. He intimated that he in
tended to take action in the matter.
Mr. Findley was informed by
friends of the proposed move of the
Superintendent. He immediately
called up the city authorities and
gave his side of the story. He told
Chief Harrison that it would not be
' necessary to serve the warrant if it
was issued. He asked that he be
notified if Prof. Thomas filed an affi
davit, giving the official assurance
that he would immediately report.
At the time of going to press the
affidavit had not been filed.
Another session of the investigat
ing committee will be held tonight
at the High school. The action tak
en by the Board Tuesday night in
restoring Prof. Glover's salary and
re-instating Mrs. Sproul is looked
upon as a decided victory for the
anti-Thomas members. Those who
are carrying on the prosecution of
the charges say that the report of the
committee will be a unanimous one.

This Law Suit.
Brothers-in-law Have a Complicated
Difference to Settle.
When a few months ago Wm. Cal
vin loaned to his brother-in-law,
Patrick Scully, a gasoline stove, and
the latter loaned to the former a bull
pup, there were not better friends in
Akron than these two men. Since,
however, things have gone different.
On Saturday, June 10, a replevin
suit will be heard in Justice Thomas'
court. The plaiiitifT will be Galvin ;
the defendant, Scully. Galvili wants
the stove; Scully wants the bull
pup, and besides that there's threats
of hanging hand-painted pictures
under the eyes of two men. These
two men are Galvin and Scully.
Each will clean out the other.
The case, too, is complicated.
Scully claims the stove was given
him by Galvin. He also wants the
pup, which he claims Galvin gave to
his father. Now the pup is exten
sively absent, hence Scully's coun
tercharge. Good legal talent will handle the
case, and an interesting suit is prom
