His work in connection with the ex-

brought him in contact with some of
the ablest men in the State, both in a
business and political way and he thus .
gained an intimate knowledge of
many of the big political deals that
were pulled off in those days. Infact
he was a trusted lieutenant of the
late Governor Hastings and was in-
variably in the thick of the old-time
political fights which used to be an
annual occurrence in Centre county,
but which now, alas, have passed into
history. :
To Mr. Malin, without question, be-
longs much of the credit for laying
the solid foundation on which the tel-
ephone business is now conducted in
this vicinity. Thirty years or there-
abouts of the best years of his life
were spent with the Bell people and
in 1901 he resigned and for two years
was engaged with the late Alexander
Patton, of Clearfield, in the contract-
ing business in Cambria county. Ear-
ly in 1903 he was persuaded to go
with the newly organized Huntingdon
and Clearfield Telephone and Tele-
graph company and the ensuing six
years were spent in establishing that
company, the Indiana Telephone com-
pany and others on a sound founda-
tion and the final merger of all into
the American Union company. In
1909 he retired from the telephone
business and accepted a district agen-
cy for the Mutual Life Insurance com-
pany of New York. He made a suc-
cess of this business from the begin-
ning and frequently made the record
for business written in his territory.
He continued in the life insurance
business until failing health compel-
led him to lay aside active work and entire life, seventy-three years ago. |

Lodge of Masons and a thirty-second
degree member of the Williamsport
On November 23rd, 1871, he was
united in marriage with Miss Eliza-
beth Miles, who passed away six years
ago. He is survived, however, by

In 1891 he began operating in the
coal business in a small way and in
1895, in connection with the Kelley
his interests in this direction have
proven unusually profitable, especially
within the past few years. Some
years ago he became interested in
some timberland in Florida but a good
part of that is as yet undeveloped.
During the past few years he has
spent-the winters in Florida and his -
summers at Snow Shoe.
In addition to being a shrewd busi-
ness man Mr. Budinger was a genial,
companionable gentleman. He was a
member of the I. 0. O.F. and the
Clearfield Lodge of Elks.

Small Vote at Tuesday’s Primaries.
Had it not been for the excitement
of the campaign waged between Tom
Beaver and the Hon. Ives Harvey over
the nomination for Assemblyman on
the Republican ticket Tuesday’s pri-
maries would undoubtedly have been
a record-breaker for a short vote.
Take the Democrats, for example.
They were not worked up over any lo-
cal contests and not much interested
in the fate of the ticket at large and
the result was less than a thirty per
cent. vote was out. Of course the nice
weather and the fact that the farmers
simply couldn’t spare the time from
their work to go to the polls was prob-
ably the main reason for the short
vote in the country districts. t
And even with the one or two live-
ly contests théy had on hand the
usual vote polled at the primaries. It
is altogether possible that the result
would have been the same even had
the vote been much larger, only the
majorities may have been more pro-
But it must be admitted that many
voters are lax in their interest in
the primaries. This fact is too often
true, and very frequently results dis-
astrously in getting men on the tick-
ets who should not be there, but this
is hardly true this year. In fact, not
one in ten voters knew one man from
another on the ticket outside of the
local candidates, and no
less which of them was nominated, so
‘ that there was little lost by the small ;
vote cast on Tuesday.

{ Rhoda Royal's Circus Billed for Belle-
| fonte.
| The advent of the Rhoda Royal's
greatest shows, on Monday, May 31st,
“will, it is said, mark an epoch in the
| matter of tented amusements in Belle-
| fonte. That this show will present the
i biggest and finest street pageant
| Bellefonie has yet witnessed, 1s as-

| circus company numbers more circus
| performers and of a better order of
merit than have heretofore been
gathered together under any one
: management, is also stated positively.
{ Thousands of dollars cash were ex-
| pended last winter in accumulating
new features to add to the glories of
' the “Rhoda Royal Greatest Shows.”
‘ix The menagerie is said to be a very
' complete one, containing the finest
collection of rare wild beasts ever on
' the coast. The newspapers all along
the line speak highly of this huge en-
tertainment, and the “small boy,” as
well as those older folks who will be
delighted again with the feats of the
{ many male and female performers,
the handsome horses, the wonderful
ex hibition of wild beasts in the circu-
| lar steel cage, the marvelous aerial
i acts, and the exciting races on the
hippodrome track. Exchanges are all
| unanimous in praising the courtesy of
| Royal’s employees while handling the
' immense crowds and finding seats for
late comers.
The lack of “sure thing” men and
| fakirs also adds materially to the en-
| joyment of the spectator.
| The reputation of Rhoda Royal for
| faithfully carrying out all his advance
promises and for dealing fairly with
| the public in all things, affords posi-
| tive assurance that his show will

— Tuesday’s primaries most sure-
ly demonstrated the fact that if there
is any one thing that the constitution-
al revision committee should do, it is
recommend some kind of a new ballot
law that will not only simplify the
casting of the ballot but also wipe out
the vast amount of labor connected
with counting the vote. The ballot on
Tuesday was not only unusually large
but so complicated that it took the or-
dinary voter from two to five minutes
to find out who he wanted to vote for,
and quite a number of ballots were
invalidated in part because the voter
voted for too many candidates. And
then the stupendous task of counting
the vote has become such a bugbear
that it is rather difficult to get men to
serve on the election boards. And it
isn’t any wonder, either, when the
fact is considered that the election
board in the North ward of Bellefonte.
not only worked all of Tuesday night
but until nine o'clock or later Wed-
nesday morning before they got their
count completed and return sheets
made out. In fact many of the elec-
tion boards in the county worked un-
til almost morning to get their re-
turns out.
