Special Letter.
WASHINGTON, JAN. 16. The cordial
expressions of regard for .lolui K.
Tener from his colleagues on both
sides of the House upon his retirement
from membership in that body must
have been extremely gratifying to the
new governor. Mr. Toner's resigna
tion went into effect on Monday. On
the day of his inauguration many of
his friends in the housa wired him con
gratulatory messages in which they
predicted that his administration
would be such as to receive the com
mendation of the people. Some of his
Msocifi'-j > al tj sane fl jral pieces to the
executive mansion. Mr. Teller's rec
ord in Congress has been that of an
able, painstaking and public spirited
official, who has rendered exceptional
service for the constituency which
sent him to Washington.
Members of the Pennsylvania dele
gation in Congress have referred to the
fact that in the gratifi cation of the Re
publicans of Pennsylvania over Mr.
Tener's inauguration the campaign
of slander last fail was forgotten. The
echoes of the abuse and misrepresenta
tion of the discredited political coali
atiou which directed that disgraceful
campaign died away with the an
nouncement of another Republi
can victory in the Keystone
State. Since then the methods em
ployed to defeat the Republican candi
date Lave been recalled at intervals
only by the confessions of some of his
enemies that they had lied about him.
Pennsylvania politicians in Wash
ington state that thousands of honest
Republicans who were misled by mis
representation and voted against the
Republican ticket in November are
now willing to withhold judgement in
Governor Tener's case and give him
an opportunity to fulfill the pledge he
made last fall. It is highly probable
that many of these Republicans have
reflected upon what would have been
the consequences if the campaign of
slander had been successful. If so they
realize that at Ilarrisburg on Tuesday
the shouting would have come from
exultant hosts of the Democracy,
Governor Stuart would have retired
for a Democrat, eager to exert the
power of his administration for the ad
vancement of the Democratic party in
Pennsylvania and the nation. And a
Democratic legislature would have dis
placed Senator George T. Oliver with
a Democrat, who would join other
Democrats in the United States Senate
in the enactment of destructive tariff
legislation. Considering the Demo
cratic landslide in November and the
-menace of Democratic tariff revision
in the next, Congress the inauguration
of Governor Tener is peculiarly fortu
nate from the viewpoint of Pennsyl
French Protection.
Tne revised French Tariff is a pro
tective measure fundamentally and
purposely, and it will he kept within
Protective lines at all hazards. It is
the same policy as in Germany and in
every other country except England
and even there the Tariff is as Protect
ive as England can fairly make it, in
view of her fi iliar -ondltlon of hav

Basket Ball.
On Saturday last, Emporium went to
Weedville and played that fast team
to a standstill. At the end of the sec
ond period the tscore was a tie and
Weedville refused to play for tho ex
tra points necessary to decide the
game, the Emporium team was entitl
ed a victory by default, but on- boys
put up no kick as they did not want to
win 011 a technicality This was the
first game Weedville did not win this
year and they say they will have re
veuge 011 return game which will be
played in Emporium on Feh 4th.

On Saturday Jan. 21st., Emporium
will play the strong team from Ridg
way, and although Ridgway beat our
boys a few weeks ago, it does not seetn
possible that they can repeat the perfor
mance, since our team is greatly
strengthened and the team work has
improved wonderfully. Pierotti, the
star player from Kane is now a resi
dent of this town and will be seen in
all games in future.
The following members of the High
School Athletic Association went to
Brookville and Clarion last Friday
afternoon. Messrs. R. H. Edgar,
Eugene Metz, Gordan Vogt, Roy Swan
son, William Howard, Jr., and Oscar
Foster. During the trip two very
interesting games of basket ball
were played. Mr. Gordan Vogt was
captain of the team. At Brookville,
where the first stop was made the
game resulted in a victory for Brook
ville, with a score of 61 to 27. Brook
ville has the fastest team in that sec
tion of the State and have only met
with one defeat this present season.
They played a very clean game and
showed the boys a good time. On
Saturday morning the journey was
continued to uiariiAi, arriving there at
ten o'clock. During the day they in
spected the town and the Normal
and in the evening attended the Li
terary Society and heard a very in
teresting lecture on Nature study.
The game with Clarion Normal was
called about nine o'clock Saturday
evening and the first half finished with
a score of 8 to 7 in favor of Empor
ium, at the end of the second half the
score stood 18 to 13 in favor of Clarion.
Although the boys lost both games
they fought hard to win them and the
teams they visited were stronger than
they are. They expect to have return
games with both these teams in the
near future. The Emporium boys left
Clarion on Sunday morning, driving a
distance of lb miles through the mud
to Brookville where they took the train
for home at 1:05 p. m. arriving here on
the afternoon flyer via Driftwood.

Court Holds Commissioners Lia
ble for Own Expenses
While Traveling.
Should the higher courts sustain
; Judge Fanning, of Bradford county, in
an opinion handed down in Tonawan
da, that no county is liable for the per
sonal expenses of county commis
sioners in discharge of their public
duties, it will make a sweeping change
! in customs which have prevailed in
j nearly every county of the State for
I years.
The decision, while involving only
' the small amount of §1.75, affects the
I entire state. It means, in brief, that,
if upheld, when county commissioners
| are away from home on official bnsi
| tiess hereafter, they will be personally
; liable for individual expenses. In
other words, on county business, the
J county is liable for mileage and noth
i ing else, and that food and beds are
' for the commissioners to pay out of
their own pockets.
In common with other counties,
! Rradford is divided into three poor
districts, and each commissioner looks
after the indigents in his subterritory.
A woman residing in Commissioner
1 Marsh's division was declared insane,
i and it was incumbent upon him to re
| move her to an asylum, which he did,
j rendering a bill of $1 75 for meals on
the trip. The bill was attested by the
commissioners' clerk, and drawn on
the county treasurer, who refused to
honor the order on the ground that the
law did not contemplate paying the
commissioners' individual expenses,
The case hinges on the construction
of the words "traveling expenses ne
cessarily incurred in the discharge of
their official duties," which Judge Fan.
ning holds does not iuclude eats.
Hereafter, Bradford commissions can
not eat out the county treasury, and
must carry full dinner pails en route
on county business or take their lunch
in a rag.

Ye editor very recently visited New
| ton Wiley cemetery and while a
I blanket of snow covered the ground,
we noticed very many beautiful tokens
j of affection deposited upon the resting
' places of dear ones Beautiful, impos
j ing mausoleums, monuments and head
i Btones dotted all portions ol the "Silent
I City" and while we drove through
j the avenues we could not but
j think of the very many departed
. friends wiio rested with the dead,
! where we all soon would be number
ed. Would doubt if more beautiful
monuments can be seen in any ceme
tery than one notices there. The lat
est to be erected is a handsome Barre,
| Vt., granite monument recently placed
l on Hon. B. W. Green's lot, in memory
of his wife. It stands about six feet
and is a very massive, one of the larg
est in tiie cemetery; of elegant design
and the best of workmanship. The
monument weighs over ten tons and
required strenuous work to place it in
position. The Foley Brothers Com
pany, monument builders, Oleau, N.
Y., were the designers and contractors.
While writing these few words the
situation as to the future comes to our
mind very forcibly: We remember
when Newton Cemetery was located
and deeded by T. L. Messereau and
wife to John B. Newton, and by deed
from John B. Newton, June 29th, 1881,
to the Borough of Emporium. A
major portion of the lots had been sold
by Mr. Newton yet a large number of
unsold yet remained. Long since all
of these lots have been disposed of and
a large plot of land, owned by the J.
S. \V iley Estate added. Naturally the
owners of lots in the two cemeteries
wonder what will be the future pro
visions made to care for the cemeteries.
It has been suggested that an organiza
tion be formed and both cemeteries
secured, and a fund deposited as an
endowment, the interest to be devoted
exclusively, for the care and improve
ment of the resting place. Another
suggestion has beeu made that a large
plot of land, sufficient to last for many
years, be secured if possible near the
original Newton Cemetery. Who will
move iu this matter?
