ONE DOLLAR FEB TEAB W I fi y. t n :- 3 - '-. i- i LIPFNINC OF 80HOOL MAY BE DELAYED Inspection Was Completed Yesterday Report Made to Depart ment by Inspectors. Hinted That It Will be Necessary to Oharige Date. Tuesday, Inspectors J. A. Robinson and Li. W. Ralston of the state de partment of Inspection of workshops, factories and public buildings, com pleted their examination of the Can ton school buildings, with the excep tion of tho parochial schools. They have sent their report to the head of the department and it will be made public In the near future. Whllo neither of the Inspectors would say much concerning tho out come of their examination of the var ious buildings, it has been learned that numerous suggestions for im provement to the flro protection In the schools have been made. While none of the buildings were extremely dangerousto tho life of the children iu case of Are, It was considered best that certain precautionary measures should bo recommended In the report. The boar dot education will receive their orders about the action to be taken, from the department in a few days. The inspectors say little, but hint that school may no.t be opened In Canton on September 8, as proposed by the board and the superintendent. It is utterly impossible to open the schools without having first acted upon the orders of the Inspection de partment, and it the improvements recommended are of any extent, it will be Impossible to begin the school year for some time. Canton, has been unfortunate In having the inspection made bo near tho beginning of the school year, for they will be. given little or no lime to, cary out the orders of the depart ment. But what Is one's loss la an other's gain. Had some other town In this district been neglected for the examination of the Canton schools they would have been made to suffer Instead. Tho number of inspectors of the department for the amount of work that has to be taken care of, is woefully Inadequate. There are about 15,000 school buildings to.be inspected annually besides the workshops and factories, and there are but twenty three inspectors In the state. Twice this number could hardly handle the work properly. Until a short time ago, there were but thirteen Inspectors In the- state but recently the force was Increased by ten. Many of the Inspections will not be made In some places until after the school year opens and then they will have to be ehut down, pending the making of the repairs. Alliance is tho one city of Stark county that will be prepared for the opening. During the early part of he summer many changes in the fire protection systems of the schools ,wero recommended and for a time tho board of education made no effort to fet-upca the suggestions. Tho mayor took up the matter and Informed them that no school would be allowed un til the orders of the department of Inspection were carried out. About August 1 work was started there and the Improvements are nearlng completion. There Is positively no excuse for the delay In the opening of the Mas slllon public schools. The Inspection of the MasBlllon buildings was made last March, and many changes were recommended by the Inspectors. The board received its orders soon after from the head of the department but neglected to take action upon them. Now the sohood opening will be de layed some length of time and the board will be forced to nuiko the sug gested Improvements before the build ings can be uLed. Mayor Frantz of that city has agreed to stand by the department of Inspection to see that the proper fire protection Is provided. Superintendent Baxter when It was hinted that the Canton schools might be held up, said: "We have been conducting sohool for a number- of years under the present flro protection and all has gone well. However, we are only the agerits of the inspection department, and can only obey Its or ders." I ' Former Resident Injured. Serious Injuries toavo befallen Em met K. Wllllaman, a former resident ff'thU city, In Akron. This young fnan was employed In tho 0. T, Parka undertaking establishment and while making a run to tho rubber works there with' an anbulance the vehicle was overturned and Wllllaman was thrown to the street, being dragged flulto a dlstauce ' beforo the horses could be Btopped.

Rlcardo Rodri guez, chief of the bureau of stamps and materials In the Havana post ofilco, was arrested tonight on tho charge of having stolen stamps of the value of $53,135. Rodriguez disappear ed last Saturday but was found hid ing In Havana this evening and lock ed up. For several years Rodriguez had been abstracting sheets of stamps from the original packages and then re-seallng the latter. By this method he succeeded In deceiving the Inspec tors when they checked up tho Btock. Rodriguez Is 70 years of age and was employed for ten years In the Philadelphia postofilce. He entered the Cuban service at tho time nf tho first intervention on the recommen dation of the Philadelphia postal authorities. T T On Wool Did Farmers of Stark This Year With NO TARIFF REVISION Stark county fanners who are en gaged in sheep raising lost between $0000 and $7000 as a result of the Re publican panic this year. The fall In tho price of wool was between 7 and 8 cents, a decrease which prevailed during the entire wool season. Tho season in which the sheep are shorn ends in the early part of the summer. During tho months of April, May and June, tho majority of the farmers dispose of tho wool to the dealers. According to the assessors' report for April, 1908, there were 15,031 sheep in Stark county. His re port also states that during 1907, 80,801 pounds of wool were shorn in the county. Based upon these figures the estimate of tho loss to the farm ers has been made. A farmer who owned a flock of 100 sheep lost approximately $50 this year by the drop in the price of wool caus ed by the stringency of tho money market. The ordinary person doe not know of the loss to the farmer, but the sheep raisers appreciate things to their full extent, und tho result will show on olection day. The output and demand for wool this year was as great as any previous year, at the prevailing price. While Stark county farmers have lost a neat wad, there aro others who have suffer ered. Many counties in the state raise as much wool as Stark and a few of them more, and the sheep men all over the state have lost out on wool this year.

Then he proceeded to review the work of tho different organizations of the congregation, crltloizlng each in turn.

" N AND SAFER8 GET TOGETHER Will Sell Bonds For New Building But State no Additional Appropriations Will be Made For Extras. Local Products May be Used For Plumbing. The members of tho city council and tho board of public safety held a joint meeting In the council cham ber Tuesday night and tho quostion of selling $42,000 worth of city bonds for the erection of tho new Central flro and police station has beon agreed to. All member sot the council with the exception of Wliltmlre were in actendance as wore the members of tho board. Mayor Turnbull and Archi tect Epperson were also present. President Owen, of tho council, presid ed and Clerk Loyd called tho roll. Dr. E. S. Folk, the chairman of tho finance committee, at whose instance the ses sion was held, told of the object of the meeting. He wanted the members of the board present with all tho bids for tho construction of the building. When he made this statement Pres ident Dunwoodie, of the safety board, came forward from the spectators' seats and presented Dr. Folk a copy of all expenditures that had already boen made by the board, Including tho bids for the plumbing and electric wir ing, which tho board had rejected at a meeting held a short time previous. Councilman Williams wanted to know if porcelain lined plumbing was to be cut out and enamel substituted. He said that If ordinary plumbing was substituted that at least $3000 could be saved, and that If Canton materials could be used that there would be another big saving. Architect Epperson was asked about certain matters and in turn asked per mission of the president to make a statement. He said that while tho Motts company's work was used as a standard to go by with the plumbers bidding upon tho work that It did not exclude Canton goods from being used, as long as they wero equal. Folk thought that home materalls should have been specified as a stand ard, while Epperson answered that all architects used the Motts wares as standards to bid on. Ho did not claim that they were better than the things made In Canton. Aungst declared that the members of tho board had exceeded their au thority, as they had proceeded to tear down the old engine house and erect new temporary buildings without tho consent of the council. Folk thought that the council was as much to blame for this as any one else and did not blame the board to any groat extent. Ho said that the couucllmen neglected their duties when they did not stop the board in tearing down the old buildings and erecting the new ones. He said that he was satisfied to issue the $42,000 in bonds, making the total amount to bo spent by the board $70, 000, as was agreed to formerly, but that ho would never vote to pay for any extras that the board might want to run in. This seemed to meet the approval of all oounollmen and Folk Williams and Aungst signed the de port favorable to selling the bonds, every councilman voting to sustain their report. Tho safety board will now proceed with tho work and the plumbing will be roadvortlsed at once. ARE SOLICITING SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR NEW INDUSTRY According to V, A. Dougherty, pres ident of the board of trade, the can vass for subscriptions to the fund for tho purchase of a slto for the pro posed new industry, will begin some time this week, as soon as the com mittee finds time to beglD the work.
