By a Cleveland Herald Correspondent. The following paragraphs have been culled from a letter on Canton, wrltted by one of the Herald staff and which appeared in a recent issue of that paper : 'If you can Induce a Cantonlan to brrg of his adopted city, he will first allude to Its extorsive manufacturing Interests. Prominent among these are tbe agricultural works of C. Aultmsn & Co., which cover several acres, and give employment to six hundred meB ; the Dlebold Safe manufac tory, Spring works, Bteel works, Malleable Iron worke, etc, which altogether give employment to as many more workmen TheStark County Dem ocrat la well known throughout this section of tbe oountry. Mr. A. McGregor, Its editor. Is a veteran In the ranks, Forty-Uve years ago, with his father, be had charge of the old Canton Academy. A few years later, when his father purchased the Democrat, tbe present editor learned to set type snd all branches of tbe art of printing. He Is a Scotchman by blrtb, with a marked taste for lit erature, and tha columns of bis paper sparkle with orlnlnality, He Is the poet laureste of edit ors, an ul flinching Democrat, and the paper does not belle Its name. If you see a fine span o grays decorated with fanoy bells and plumes, and drawing a handsome sleigh, yon may bet your ast nickel that Mr. A. B. Proal or some member of his family are passing. A colored ooaohmau always bandies tbe ribbons. Mr. Proal Is tbe most-talked of man In the city. He Is a hand some fellow of perhaps thirty-two ; always well dressed, whioh heightens bis appearance. As Secretary and Treasurer of the Connotton Valley Railway, be Is, as a friend Informed me, the per Bonification of the push and energy shown by mat company, He Is lavish of h!s wealth, and lives In fine style on Cleveland avenue. One of the most popular Democratic politicians Is Sheriff demy Altekruse. He was formerly a grocer In Mafslllon. After serving as Coroner, he was elected Sheriff Never tiring lndoltgwbat he can to favot any who come In his way, every one in tbe county knows him and baa a good word for blm. He Is certain to be renominated when b's present term expires, andtmly a strong man on the other side will stand any show against blm, I attended the regular weekly meeting of tbe City Council. The manner In wblch buineB8 passed off was in marked contrast with our Solons of Cleveland. There wis little talk, but a genera! disposition to corsider al' things well and then take action, Presldont 8hlelds, tbe ex Mayor, bandies the gavel with the manner of an old band at It. He is a member of the well known law firm of Messrs. Baldwin A Shields A large number of bills were for relle' to poor people. A committee of the Counoll takes this matter in band and dispenses charity when ever It Is needed among the residents. Canton will witness many improvements In com ing months. The Connotton Valley depot, a fine struoture. costing 836,000,1s rapidly approaching completion. A system of sewerage will be con structed so as to drain the entire town. Tbe water works facilities havs been Increased by tbe addition of a pump capable of 8,000,000 gallons dally, and coating 815,000, and soon Improve nents to tbe extent of 820,000 will also be made With Its Increasing railroad facilities the city Is bound to grow, and by tbe lapse of another decade Its population of 14,000 will have nearly doubled. G. H. W. MAYOR'S COURT. William Brit, and Jerome Wilson, tbe two crooks' who picked Aroher Silver's watch from his pocket, on Tuscarawas street Sunday, January 15th, had their hearing last Thursday evening. Mr. R, S. Shields appearlrg for tho defendants, aud Mr. J. P. Fawcett for the prosecution. Tbey desired to glead guilty of petit larceny, but the attorney for the prosecution objected and tbey were bound over to tbe Common Pleas Court on the charge of highway robbery. As neither could furnish 1500 ball they were Jailed The trial of John Roe, a hammerman at tbe Steel works, charged with raising a disturbance at tbe Buckeye House, near the depot, and resist ing Station Policeman Eddleman, while the latter was trying to restore order, began Friday. It was tried to a Jury lu 'Squire Hudson's office, the Mayor's truce being too small to accomodate tbe spectators. City Solicitor Welty bad charge of tbe prosecution and Mr. Charles Upham tbe defense. At noon Saturday tho J my brought iu a verdict of guilty. Roe was flued 812 and costs, amounting lu all to 435. Mr. Charles Herzer baa attached Mr. Archer Silver's watch, at present in possession of the Mayor, for a bill of 813 which he holds against him. HEAVY TRAVEL TO COLORADO. The heavy travel to Colorado, and Denver par ticularly, this spring, Is without precedent. Twenty-one Denver hotels rarely reg'sler less thsn 8 000 arrivals per week, and frequently tbe list stieches to 4 000 and 5 000. Nearly every tourist capitalist, miner, or home-seeker, naturally goes to Denver first, as it is the great distributing, ra diating and outfitting point of the Rocky Moun tain country. This enormous travel, going as it does over the different Colorado lines of the Union Pacific has necessitated great and won' derful improvements in the carrying facilities of that model route, Tbe Kansas Division formerly Kansas Faciilo Railway Is now running tW3 magnificent passenger trains between Kansas City and Denver dally. TbeBe are equipped with tbe finest Pullman 'sleepers, Horton Recllnlng-chalr oars, and every other needful lmprovmenta known to railroading; and this is the only line running trains or cars of any description through between the Missouri River and Denver. The Great Platte Valley Route Omaha to Denver Is keeping abreast with tbe times, and must always remain the popular line into Northern Colorado. APPRECIATIVE SCHOLARS. Miss Emma Selss, wbo resigned her position as teacher In tbe High Sehool lt.st week on account of Illness, was the recipient of several handsome presents from the differentolasses last Friday. Tbe first olass presented her with a silver and glass boquet holder, the third olass with a silver card receiver and boquet bolder combined, and the second class with a handsome silver and glass berry dish. Tbe third olass accompanied their present with tbe following appropriate sentiments: "Although our school days together are ended, our friendship is not. We have struggled along side by side, during our course In tbe high school, a period almost equal to three years, and our greatest desire was that you remain with ns the remaining portion of our school days. Your pu pils will remember you as one who was always ready to give aid to those wbo desire It, and belp tbe deflolent pver many rough and broken plaoes.

Tbe offer to take the road and commence tbe construction within six months and have 1( completed by July 4, 1882, after abort debate was accepted with but one dis senting voice. Tbe Baltimore, Pittsburgh A Chi cage Company Is composed of Pittsburgh capital ists who agree that tbe road shall be maintained and operated Independent of all other lines, bnt ultimately extended to Fort Wayne, and there connect with the Wabash system. The transfer to this company Is gjneraflly regarded as a vlcto'y for Jay Gauld over tbe Baltimore St O'Jio people, wbo have been trying to secure potsesalon for some time. CONNOTTON VALLEY. Cleveland, January 19 -A mortgage deed of trust securing bonds of tbe recently consolidated Connotton Valley Railroad has been filed at the CouBty Recorder's office. Copies of the mortgage were filed simultaneously In Summit, Portage, Stark, Carroll and Harrison oountles. The mort gage secures 12,600,000 worth of bonds, and Is sign ed by William J. Rotch.President of the Company and made In favor of Frank Morrison of .Boston Trustee. ' Tbe Connotton Northern Company and Connot ton Valley Railroad Company, at tbe time oflEeTr consolidation under the name of the Connotton Valley Railroad Company, bad outstanding IC62,- 000 and 81,125.000 In bonds respectively. At a meeting of tht stockholders of the Consolidated Company It was voted to issue 12,800.000 bonds to take up the $1 ,787.000 bonds orlglBally Issued by tbe two Companies Included in the consolidation, and with the balance (8813,900) remaining to oom plett tbe road. Tbe bonds run thirty years from date, are payable In gold in Boston, and bear 7 per cent Interest. Oae clause of tbe resolutions subjoined to tbe mor'g ige provides that the agree ment between the Connotton Railroad Company and the Boston Equipment Company, dated Jan uary 1, 1871, for the leasing and oondllsonal pur chase of rolling stock shall be recognized as the deed of trust filed January 18. h. The bands were placed upon the market about a week ago. A suit has been entered In tbe Common Pleas Court of Carroll oounty against the ;Con notion Valley Railroad Company by a number of credit ors of the old Ohio Sc Toledo road. The latter op erated about twenty-two miles of road between Minerva, 8tark county, and Dell Roy, Carroll connty. In December, 1877, suit was brought against the Company In the Stark oounty Court, and resulted In a Judgment In favor of all the dl'. ferent creditors of the road, among wblch was one In favor of George P.Davis, Trustee for the first mortgage bondholders, for 838,383 56. The road was unable to meet these Jufgments, declared Itself Insolvent, was appraised (with rolling stock and other appurtenances) at 841,000, and sold by the Sheriff of Stark oounty to Georga L. Ingersoll for 827,601. Ingersoll in turn sold it to the Con notton Company for 81. The road was laid with new rails, and at present forms a part of tbe Con notton Valley. In December, 1880, T. D. Yost & Co., who beld a Judgment for 1911 87 against the O. & T, Company, made an attempt In the Court here to recover It by having the saleot the Sheriff declared Invalid. The suit, however, was lost. The petition In this latter case before the Carroll county Court, asks that the sale be set aside on tbe ground that there was collusion between the officers of the Ohio & Toledo and the Connotton Companies to defraud the creditors of the former by selling the road to the latter Company at a price much below lis real value. The Connotton management say that this Is but another attempt to annoy them and that tbe Con notton will not be affected In tbe least thereby. Steubenville, Cadiz and other cities toward the river are anxious to have the Connotton extend ed southward. Some of tba princlpalbuslness men of Steubenville are canvassing that olty to see wbat will be done by her citizens, At Cadiz at Impromptu railroad meeting was held recently and a commit ee, oonBlstsng of H. Boyles, John Con well, W. B. Law, and John N. Haveifbld, was appointed to come to Canton and confer with the management of the Connotton as to the prospects of tbe proposed road through Cadiz, FREIGHT BLOCKADE ON THE P. F. W. &C. The Ft. Wayne read is laboring under a freight blockade. Like all the other great trunk lines it has had an enormous press of business this season and their supply of cars and engines has been Insufficient to trai sport the fast accumulating freight with sufficient dispatch. One or the rules of the road is that all freight cars after arriving at their destination must be unloaded at the expira tion of twenty-four hoars. This rule Is involun tarily broken almost every where. Herein Can ton tbe switching engine does not generally got all the freight cars on the unloading switch with in that time. NOTES. As roon as tbe weather will permit, Willis, Ben skin Si Co. will begin the construction of tbe new Valley depot on West Tuscarawas street. Tbe Interior work on the Connotton depot Is In progress. The N. Y., P. O, has closed a contract for 2,700 new box cars. It Is proposed to extend tbe Alliance & Lake Erie railroad to the Ohio river, and a charter has been taken out with that object in view. Strong i Carey, contractors on the Connotton have removed their headquarters from Kent to Bedford, and have commenced work on their contract for sixteen miles of gradlrg north of Streetsboro. Cleveland Herald: Barzllla Roblnette has com menced suit against the Connotton Valley Rail way and Strong Si Carey, contractors, seeking to enjoin them from grading a certain street In bed ford village. A temporary Irjuctlon waaallow by Judge Hamilton. Messrs. N. A. Smith St Co. have leased the stone quarry on the James Huston farm, along the line of the contemplated change of grade of the Con' notton. The O. C. C. St B. Is proceeding with work of grading quietly but quickly. Our depots present an animated appearance upon the arrival of the trains. The opposition 'bus linos mansga to make themselves heard. On Tuesday morning things were so lively at the Valley depot that a fracas was anticipated and a policeman telephoned for. Mr. J. H. Soott, or e of the ol 'est conductors on the Ft. Wayno road, and who for the past fifteen years ran between Pittsburgh and Crestline, died at his residence In Crestline of congestion of the lurgj last Monday morning. A new switch engine and crew took charge of the Canton work last Monday. Yesterday morning the switching engine was partly off the rails at the east end of the ware' house track and work was considerably delayed. Obrvilli. Owing to tbe Increased business of the Orrville post office, It has been transferred to a higher grade (3d class), with a salary of 11,100 we believe, and tbe laws governing this class of post offices require that tbe postmaster shall be appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Heretofore the postmaster baa been ap pointed In tbe spring by tbe post office depart ment and the applicants, of whom there are sev eral for the position ol postmaster did not amid pate a new appointment until that time of year, or If they did know of tbe change, Idled their time away, and allowed Mr. Shriber to quietly prepare bis petition and steal a march on them and again secure the cove tod prize. The friends of the other applicants are extremely unnerved about tbe matter, and an effort Is being made to have the Senate notconfirm tbe appolntment.and it yet remains to be seen whether the effort will prove futile. tracts.

Never known to be better. Miss Eyster from Masslllon Is visiting her grandfather, Mr, Jos. Doll. J. R. Warner, of the Arm of Nina St WirnAP. paid his parents a flying visit last week. The gossiping which was in circulation some time ago about some of our most prominent out sins has made no new development. Mr. Z. Doll and B. F.

R, a visit, to asoertaln the probable cost of opening their mine and putting it in running order. They estimate the cost be tween four and five thousand dollars. We rejoice to know that the oompany means business and have already eommenced to "get out their ttm ber." They are all business men and will push It through as fast as money and labor oan do it.

The Mahoning Coal Company of Youngstown are about to Introduoe coal cutting mechlnery In one of their mines in the Mahoning Valley. This coalcutter Is not the Lechtner machine now In nse In the Hocking Valley mines, but la what is known as Harrison's coal cutter, and has been used for some time In the mines of Braldwood Illinois. The result of this experiment In the Mahoning Vslley mines will be watched with In terest by other mining operators. It will be re membered that there was serious trouble among the miners In the Hocking Valleylmlues last fall growing out of the use of similar machinery.
