AKRON DAILY MOCRA Bacrs' Lancaster Almanac for . . . 1900 HAS ARRIVED AT Steinbacner's, 1 04 E Markets!. 1 VOLUME EIGHT. NUMBER 169 AKRON, OHIO, FRIDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 3. 1899. PRICE ONE GENT. DE i PECULIAR Action of Republican Members of Board. Commissioners McMillen and Crisp Object to a Trifling Change. There ares ome very peculiar in consistencies noticeable in the delib erations of tlie Board of City Com missioners. The following serves as an in stance to illustrate the truth of the above. Recently the Robinson Bros, company asked that a portion of N. Forge street be vacated. This would benefit that corporation by giving it improved shipping facili ties. The Republican members of the Board, Crisp and McXIilleu were agreeable. Again, they did not op pose the vacation of a portion of Factory street. Today Mr. J. R. Kutt, representing the Hamilton Building company, called on the Board and asked for authority to make a slight change in the Mill st. curb line to accommo date theplans the for splendid new Hamilton building. These changes have heretofore been allowed With out ailV UlbCUSNlUll. PUT hUIIlt) TeU- son however. Crisp and ATcMillen, objectpd to the change. The first named voted against it. Mcilillon refused to go'ou record in the matter. The motion was lost. Judgo Stuart had a long conference with ATcMillen later. That commissioner then an nounced that he would vote to ap prove an ordinance authorizing the change. The exchange for the Akron People's Telephone Company is to be located in the new building. If the Republican members of the Board refuse to allow the change in the curb line it would delay the con struction of the building until the plans could be altered.

Did Not Support the Party's Policies renewal of its franchise. Messrs. Paige, McGarry and myself held a consultation in regard to this mat ter. "I said to them, that I was not op posed to granting the Street Railway company what it asked, providing it gave the city a proper equivalent; that as its property had been ap praised by aboard of its own choos ing, at the sum of $932,000, $432,000 of which the appraisers said represent ed the company's tangible property, that which cost it dollars and cents; and $500,000 represented its fran chises, that which had been given it by the city I thought the company ought to, in consideration of the re newal of its franchises so that thev all would expire in twenty-five years from date, agree to pay the entire cost of repaving East Market st to sell six tickets for 25 cents and 25 for $1.00, good for all hours of the day, and eight tickets for a quarter, ! good between the hours of Ave and seven in the morning and five and seven in the evening; and school children's tickets ten for a quarter. 'I realized that East Market street needed improving; that about all the company had left there were two streaks of rust and its right-of-way, but I felt that the improvement of East Market street was more of a necessity to the Street Railway com pany than to the public at large, be- . n!H1t.O fllA OfinHlflrtTl gf lfo flo1-eT nrnr.

Our relations were of the most!" friendly character and 1 was morfc than satisfied with Mr. Paige's official conduct." "I had, 'said the Mayor, "at no time attempted to dictate the course which any of tlio City Commission ers should follow with reference to their official transactions. True, I had frequently consulted with Messrs. Paige and McGarry, the two members of the Board who belonged to the same political party with my self, as to whetherthis or that course would be for the best interests of the city at large or would redound to the credit and advantage of the party which wej represented. "Just prior to the spring election there wa$ pending before the Board of City Commissioners and the City Council an application on tho part of the Street Railway company for a J. Koch & Co. Take Another Step Upward on the Ladder of Enterprise, to Make Their Store Greater Than Ever. This time we have rented the largest and finest store in the city, occu pying, when completed, the first floor and basement of the new six story fire proof Hamilton Building, 70x88 feet, corner Main and Mill streets, opposite Hotel Buchtel, increasing our floor space to 15,000 square feet; and as we do not intend to move any of our present stock into the new store we have inaugurated A STUPENDOUS REMOVAL SALE AND HAVE ..

"Messrb. Paige and McGarry said they would submit these proposi tions to the company and in case it refused to concede them or if they submitted counter propositions, be fore any action was taken by the Board, we would again consult re garding the matter. "Imagine my surprise in picking up the evening's paper to find that ih3 Commissioners, by a vote of three to one, had granted the Street Railway company an extension of its franchise and agreed to the im proving of East Market st. without securing scarcely any of the. conces sions for which Messrs. Paige and McGarry said they would ask. "I afterwjird asked Mr. Paige why this had been done and he said that he supposed I knew that the matter was to be acted upon and that he had forgotten the promise he had made to me. "I can scarcely understand how I ! could have known that the matter was coming up. At noon of the day on which the Commissioners recom mended the renewal, I met one of the members of the Board and asked him if anything had been done and he said, 'No.' "On the afternoon of that day, the representatives of the company met the Commissioners and closed up the deal within a very few minutes.

McNeil company, has asked the court for authority to pay credi tors a dividend of ten per cent. He has a fund of $10,000 on hand, aside from the amount necessary for run ning expenses. He also asks for an order to pay C. L. Douglas et al, roy alties amounting to '$393.75. S. H. Kohler, special master commissioner, has examined the receiver's report and pronounce it correct. Demurrer. The defendant in the case of Ern est E. vs. E. A. Pfiueger has filed a demurrer to the plaintiff's petition. He says there are no allegaeions that the plaintiff is still engaged in the bame business, hence there can no inference that the defendant's conduct harms him. There is no averment that the defendant is en gaged in a like business or threatens to engage in alike business. Asks For Receiver. James Brown has filed a petition asking that a receiver be appointed to take charge of shares of stock of the National Tube Company. He says that A.T.Paige gave liim an interest in 50 stares of stock of the Ohio Tube Company as security for a loan of $2,03t.88. Other parties claim an interest in the stock.
