DID NOT REACH ADJUSTMENT Conference Between G. C. I. A. and Employers on Wages and Condition y CUTTERS DESIRED FIVE-DAY WEEK And That Present Agree ment Extend for Two Years More No change has resulted in the agree ment between the granitecutters and manufacturers following the labor con ference which recently adjourned in Boston.

THEATRES GET - REDUCTION Valuation on Park Re duced $15,000 From $65,000 .,;; MAGNET CUT P , N $5,000 A. .w Barre Boar Civil Au- j i i monues ' Considered 0& Claims Rebates of taxes on valuations of $15,000 to the Park theatre, $5,000 to the Magnet theatre and $3,000 to Law rence C. Campbell were granted by the Barre board of civil authority at a two-hour session in city hall last night. Five ballots were necessary to make effective the Park theatre ad justment, while those of the Magnet theatre and Campbell interests each went through on the first vote. All three, however, brought otit consider able discussion. Alfred 8. Black, representing the Park theatre, gave at length his rea sons for believing that the assessment of $05,000 on the property was exorbi tant. He pointed out. that the. assessed valuation of tho place had jumped from $16,000 in a year and that the pr-operty next to his was taxed onlr $17,500. He compared the valuation placed on the theatre with that of other buildings along Main street in order, he said, to show that they were out of proportion. Mr. Black declared that in his hon-1 , est opinion the alterations occasioned bv the fire in the theatre nad artaea no more than $20,000 to the quadren nial appraisal ot Sfio.ntiu maue in tais. He indicated that the original price paid for the property went to a large extent for good will which he claimed was partially wiped out upon ths opening of the Magnet theatre. Aft er voting down, successively, motions to rebate taxes on $10,000. $20,000, $15,0110 and $5,000, a second motion for $15,000 was voted in the affirma tive. The $5,000 valuation reduction voted to the Magnet theatre was given, in what the board agreed was a. fa.ir pro portion to the decrease in' valuation voted the Park theatre. Arthur E. Campbell appeared in be half of his son, Lawrence C. Campbell, a student. He told the board that machinery valued at $10,000 recently had been purchased by his firm to re place machinery worn out. On Apr'l 1, when the assessments were made, he said, the old machinery was in op eration and the new machinery was in the process of installation. The new, he claimed, has been placed in opera tion since then and the old machines disconnected and left on their beds awaiting disposal. He was assessed for $S,000 on the old machinery and $10,000 on the new and requested that he lie given a rebate on the old outfit as it was practically worthless. He was questioned at length by members of the board and in the pro cess declared he did not believe the old machinery to be worth much mop than $3,500." The $3,000 rebate was voted on the first ballot. Two men who have yet to taste the sweets of connubial bliss were voted rebates on poll tax bills made out to their wives. A total of 30 toll tax rebates were voted. FUNERAL OF E. 0LT0LINI Was Held Yesterday Afternoon at 58 Blackwell Street.
