SANDOUSKI �WRITES MONDAY evening property owners hold a meeting at Bogart to protest against the proposed reconstruction of the Milan-rd. They say destruction of the present} road Is needlessly extravagant, and that resurfacing would be the more economical and sensible plan. Taxpayers pre making themselves hltrd. Extravagance In road building Is no longer being tolerated. The propaganda for good roads has had more than the desired result. It has overshot the mark, and has per mitted the waste of much good money. Many have profited; . the taxpayer has paid. It is because the people have permitted the management of their affairs to get out of their own hands. In Brie-co needless expense Is now being decried on all sides. The people still want good roads, but they want a fairer distribution of road funds and more careful expenditure. They'll see that they get it. Complaints have been heard from E. Madisori-st residents that their dirt road is in dire need of attention. A few stones judiciously distributed might improve the road a hundred per cent. Judging from experience, if Madison-st residents had filed their complaint in the spring they might now bo due for some attention. A survey will bo made of the water works plant to determine if the smoke nuisance can be eliminated. It can be, if the proper steps are taken. Why not make the improvement general, and get rid of all the smoke?

During a wind storm some time ago an old tree was razed. For nearly a week owners and occupants of the property permitted the tree to blockade the sidewalk. It was then trimmed of some of the limbs and the trunk placed on the boulevard. It is unsightly and not at all in keeping with the condition of many lawns-in � the vicinity, owners of which regret that the owner of tho tree dots not see fit to remove it'from the boulevard!

Disagreement on Some Technicalities Worked Out At Conference Today. HARRISBURG, Va., Sept. 8.- Rapid strides toward settlement of nil details in the new working contract with anthracite miners were made today when union and operator delegates held a joint session at the capi-tol. After tho morning meeting botli sides announced they confidently expected to finish the work before midnight. Sandusky Boy Scout council offers a free course in Scout leadership. An excellent opportunity for men interested in boys. "Scouting needs big men," Scout Executive Brown says. Everything needs big men. Tho important thing is, Scout training and experience in boy leadership helps to make men big. That is why the opportunities for boy leadership offered by the council should attract men who want to broaden themselves. We wonder where the livestock was at this year's fair? In our opinion, livestock and agriculture should be the biggest part of any county fair. We recommend that the fair board in the next year center its energies on these ments. two depart For the length of time the public has been deprived of the use of the sidewalk and probably will be deprived of it on the Jackson-st side of tho Rieger hotel excavation, we would judge a boardwalk could be used most advantageously. The city spent some money replacing pretty gravelpaths in Washington park with cement walks, but evidently doesn't see the need of a sidewalk on the north side of Tyler-st, near Campbcll-st. A rrest Anderson On Old Warrant AKRON,' Sept. 8.-Harry R. Anderson, former treasurer of the defunct Warrenty Discount Co. in which Akron investors lost $800,000 is in county jail today charged with embezzlement. He was arrested at the country home of his father-in-law nta>- hero : after a search had been conducted for him since last May when he was secretly indicted by the grand jury. The specific charge against Anderson is embezzling of $20,000 from the company. He is alleged to hf.ve diverted the money from tho company's funds for his own use. Harding Estate Worth $600,000 MARION, Sept.

HARRISBURG, Sept. 8.- The end of the anthracite strike is in sight. Both miners and operators, having agreed to Gov. Pinchot's proposals for a settlement, are now engaged in drafting a new contract. When it is finished it will be submitted to a tri-district conference at Wilkes-Barre fyv ratification and the suspension will be declared at an end. The miners, in accepting Pinchot's basis of settlement, abandoned their demand for the check off and for a twenty per cent wage increase. The operators in accepting, agreed to a ten per cent, wage increase and to recognition of the union without the check off. At 7:15 p, m. Friday miners and operators resumed their joint ses- , sions, having been brought together j again through tho intercession of Pinchot. They adjourned at midnight and it was understood substantial progress in drafting a new contract had been made. Pinchot last night received a telegram of congratulation from President Coolidge. Technical points of the proposed contract which will send anthracite miners back to work were discussed today when operators and union delegates went into conference again with Gov. Pinchot. Some dispute has arisen over the details and it may take some time to reach final conclusion. Both sides, however, now are in complete accord on the chief points. Will Ask Increase.

By R. A. DONALDSON, (United Press Staff Correspondent) LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8.-Love letters from women in various parts of the country, discussing matrimony, a "love diary," giving the financial rating and stale of health of an "heiress list" and other strange documents were found by police who raided the rooms of a man suspected of being Dr. Percival Allen. The suspect is held here to face a murder charge arising from the pois-onlng of pretty Anna Danielson, wealthy Minneapolis girl. He refuses to talk about the charge or the diary, or police allegations that he courted Ellen Poss of Rochester, Minn., while having been through a marriage ceremony with Beiie Parker, a preacher's daughter, of Evans-ville, Wisconsin. Police say they also discovered what appears to be a form letter for use in proposing to members of the "heiress list." The list contained names of girls with the amounts of their prospective wealth, health, pulchrituro and amenability opposite each, as for instance: "She has $150,000-will got $500,-000 more when father dies." After the names of some of the girls, although they were listed as "good looker" would be the words "no means," "cold proposition," "no good," "does not answer letters," etc. One letter written to the suspect offered him $15,000 if he would marry the writer. Department of justice agents also unearthed one of tho suspect's letters which had not been mailed: "I note your application says you have no children and have $17,000. Oh my darling dear how I wish I could be in your midst now and I am sure I could- prove my worthiness." �� CAU SEDISASTER ? Mountain Off Yokohama! Belched Fire, Then Sank Into Sea Causing Tidal Wave. By CLARENCE DUBOSE, (United Press Staff Correspondent.) (Copyright 1923 by United Press.) (Copyright in Great Britain.) (Copyright in Canada.) TOKIO, (by wireless from Iwaki,) Sept. 8-The earthquake of Saturday which shook from their foundations the cities of Tokio and Yokohama and a score of smaller cities, with appalling loss of life and destruction of property, was the dying convulsion of the once great volcano Oshiina, lying off the coast near Yokohama. The volcano, simultaneous with the quake, erupted, spreading destruction over its picturesque slopes where islanders farmed peacefully and sold their famous shell orjia-rnents to visitors. * The Oshima collapsed and sank into the sea. carrying its inhabitants with it. ' From tho spot where the volcanic isle had stood, a great tidal wave rushed upon the Japanese coast, en- j gulfing part of hapless Yokohama I while that city still trembled in the great 'quakes and took fire. Meanwhile, in Tokio, tho destruction was great. Three-fourths of the capital was destroyed. Fires followed -%he quakes and raged unchecked for two days and two nights. Southward from Tokio to Yokohama, the great industrial region was almost completely devastated. Yokohama was nearly wiped out. The damage extended a hundred miles southward of this city. Broken communications have made it impossible to determine as yet the full extent of the damage in these regions. landslides poured in from bluffs and hills as the earth crumbled unable to stand the strain of the tremors. Lighter earth shocks continued for four days and four nights. Communications almost throughout the whole of Japan were disrupted by estimates-perhaps bastd on nothing better than guesses- made here, are that the homeless Turn To Page^lO-No. 4.)

Premier Mussolini demanded in an interview on Italy's attitude, granted the United Press just before lie left for Milan to attend the grand prix automobile races. "Defense of the League of Nations by a section of the press of a country which refused to join the league is strange, to say the least," the fascist! chieftain continued. The interview was Mussolini's apologia for Italy's stand. The premier showed plainly he felt American criticism of that .attitude was unjustified. Mussolini received me last evening in his large studio. He appeared very tired after a long day in receiving in audience scores of people and dictating instructions to Benito Mussolini. officials at home and abroad between times. When he talked, It was slowly and deliberately, weighing every word, as if the task of refuting arguments of the American press was painful to him. Tho fact is that Mussolini never expected to find opposition in America to the stand he had taken. "I really am sorry," ho began, "that I have not the full text of the speech the then President Wilson delivered when bodies of sailors who ' fell at Vera Cruz after the Tampico I incident arrived home.
