COMMISSIOXERSCOXSIDER PLAN-TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OK PRECINCTS IN COUNTY Estimated That Some $1,750 Would Be Saved Taxpayers By Proposed Change Fairmount Township To Vote in Fairmount and At Fowler-ton According to Plan. At the suggestion of John A. Jones, Republican district chairman, the board of county commissioners, at their session Monday, took the first step in a proposed plan to cut the costs of elections, by cutting down the number of precincts in the county from G7 to 30, the following being the proposed reductions in precinct voting places: Sims township, from 3 to 2. Voting places at Sims and Swavzee. Fairmount townshin from .1 tn 2. Voting places at Fairmount and Fow- lcrton ami i"Mv td place. Monroe township from 2 to 1. Washington township from S to 1. Pleasant township from 2 to 1. Richland township, unchanged. Green township, from 2 to 1. Liberty township from 2 to 1. Jefferson township from 4 to 2. Franklin township, from 7 to 2 or Van Ruren from 3 to 1. Voting place at Van Huron, Center township is to have the num- ior pf precincts cut down as low as possible, city of Phis township includes the Marion. Wherever it is thought advisable, two or three pre - cmcts will be consolidated. Approximately $1,750 will be saved by this plan, it is estimated. ' Expenses for each precinct is divid - 'd as follows: Inspectors, $12; judge, clerk, M; voting place rent, $.; m,.ls for inspoetor, judge and clerk, moving ballot boxes, $2; inciden-$1; total, $50. tab A special session of the commission- In this business of winning the Ford Sedan Car or c.i.y rr.o of the other Grand Prizes the News is offering, candidates are reminded that it is not only getting the subscriptions that count, but in getting them while they ccunt the most in the way of EXTRA VOTES.

Trustee Albert Fisherbuck, of Jefferson township, states that he feels certain Upland will have a commissioned high school when the fall term opens on Sept. 5. After the town, ship advisory board failed to make provision for adequate school facili- ties by refusing to enter into a con- tract for a new high school building, the state board of education some months ago revoked the Upland i school's commission. The advisorv ' board has as yet taken no action that will insure a new building, but Trustee Fisherbuck believes that the board will in the near future make the necessary arrangements that will insure a renewal of the school's commission and adequate housing facilities for the, school. It is not thought that a new building can be started and completed thi year, but the resident? ot L piaiKt and .icnerson township are insisting that a start be made. . ; M'EVOY NOW PRESIDENT OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. t a meeting of the school board -vWt elect- he!ll Mon,av J.

EFFORT TO ENFORCE REMOVAL OF ALLEGED NUISANCE CAUSES WARM CONVERSATION Petition Presented Asking That the Board Declare the Halperin Junk Yard a Nuisance, But Action Deferred Suit to Enforce Completion of Wilson-Paxon Road. The regular meeting of the town board Tuesday night was out of the 'ordinary, in fact unusually interest- ing and at times inclined to be heated. Junk was the chief topic of discussion during the evening, and the members of tha board were "assisted" in the talk by some fifty citizens and property owners, and Lee Halperin, owner of the junk yard on East Wash- i ington street. The citizens were pre- sent before the board in opposition to the continuance of the junk yard in its present location, while Mr. Halperin was there to defend his rights and interests. A petition was presented to the board asking that the junk yard be declared a nuisance and ! its removal to another more secluded j location be ordered by the board. J The protesting citizens presented 'and argued the claim that the junk I yard in its present location was a detriment to the property interests of ; those living in the vicinity, and like- j wise a nuisance, in that various and ; divers odious and noxious smells and 'odors eniinated from the iunk vard. ; to tho 1iostriK.tion of the pi..u.e and .,f ti,t . jthus affronted." In like manner it ! was asserted that the rust accumulat- ing on the mass of old iron which was I accumulated in the yard was a source jof great annoyance and discomfort. inasmuch as the rust dust being blown i miner and tnitner oy the genue, or le, or pene- . otherwise, breezes, frequently I 4 i j l. .. j : : . jl . .1 1 1 ait-ii uk- (iminii rooms vi me residents of the vicinity with the result that food on the tables not f roque-nt- j. - . - - should not remain where it is. t i.,r.,.. at- AIII.IWIIUv-iv-mv- .til h;s own detense .lr. Halperin denied that his place of business was i.t. ...- , r claimed, and in support ot this he presented a remonst ranee .ifainst the petition numerously signed. He asserted that he had taken unusual precautions against giving cause for any such complaints as had been lodged against him, and that his premises were as clean and odorless as any such place could be. He admitted that he did have a few hides stored in his warehouse, but with these he had used every precaution,, annoint-ing them with deodorants approved by those who know how to approve such things. He pointed out that an enforced removal to any other location would entail upon him heavy expense and financial loss. The problem as presented proved to be an exceedingly knotty one for ths board, and no definite action was taken Tuesday night, the board deciding to engage legal advice in order that it might know wherein its powers lie, and just what action might legally ba taken in the matter, the question being laid ovsr until another meeting. Another matter that called for considerable discussion and not a little caustic comment was the condition of the Paxon-Wilson road. It was point ed out that although the time limit for th'6ompletion of the road had ex- just one year ago, the road was in an uncompleted condition, be- really in a worse condition than before the contractors began work on it. It was claimed that all efforts to indues the contractors, John A. Jones and William Williams, to complete their contract had failed, and inasmuch as all of the" leading industries of Fairmount are located on that street its present condition was not only deplorable but a serious handicap to those industries as well as to the residents of the east part of town. The board ordered that legal counsel be employed and suit be instituted immediately against the bondsmen of the contractors to compel them to complete the road according to the specifications. Crushed stone for the repair of streets was ordered purchased, and a petition for the repairing of East Third and Vine streets was granted, the work to be done as soon as possible. R. C. Smith was granted per- pirar ami nng has demonstTateil what results a lit- charter membership, and the indicate real effort will bring about. Miss tions are that before the charter list J. D.
