The correspondent of the Wayne In
dependent says "the people (of Forest
City presumably) ure In favor of a new
county being formed. Sure, Brother
Budd, sure. They would be also In fa
vor of making Forest City the county
seat anil of having several other things
happen that would be benetlclul to us
In this immediate vicinity, but thut
might seriously conflict with the Inter
ests of a great number of other people.
Look ut the practicability of the thing!
If the stute of 1'ennHylvmila ullowed
every section that was a little incon
venienced, a little more disgruntled and
above all hud an ambition to strike out
for itself, to be formed Into a new coun
ty, the state would soon be chopped up
into counties us small as townships, und
every roadside hamlet would like to be
a county seat and have a court house.
Of course we would like to have a new
county, with dear ancient old Coaltown
as the county seat (if we couldn't get
that plum ourselves), but It is not to
be. Wayne and Susquehanna and
Lackawanna will have something to say
in the matter and Anthracite county
will be burled and Brother Mooney will
be the only mourner at the ybsequles,
because nououy else ever loon me mai
ler seriously.
false alarm of fire was given Fri
day night while the blizzard was at IH
worst. The water had frozen in the
valve cup of the Clifford whistle und
was being thawed out. All at once the
whistle began to blow, and before the
steam could he shut off a first class
Are alarm had been unintentionally
sounded. The flremun ut the Forest
City breaker heard It and Joined In with
a shrill note of danger. The lOnterprlse
Hose company, despite the fierce storm,
were at the hose house In a body In an
almost Incredible space of time and had
the hose cart dragged over snow banks
four und live feet high and were half
way up to the Clifford breaker before
they found out they had been fooled.
It was an unpleasant experience for
them, but It showed Forest City people
that there was us good a volunteer com
pany here us can be found in the state.

Division Xo. Ill, Ancient Order of Hl-

The Hillside employes received their
monthly pay yesterday. The pay was
a small one, as the Clifford colliery
worked but eleven and one-fourth days.
and the Forest City colliery ten and
one-fourth, both considerably less than
half time.
The people here have known for a long
time that The Tribune was the best
paper for general news and editorial
comment in this "neck of woods." and
they have also observed that Forest
City is getting its share of local notice.
If you want the best in every depart
ment, read The Tribune.
"A Iiarrel of Money" is the name of
a play that Manager Collins expected
to have produced at Davis' opera house
tonight. On account of the storm and
a consequent inability of the company
to till all Its eiuigements the manager
received notice Tuescluy that the dale
would have to be cancelled.
It Is said that Charles Staley will
build and run a steamboat on Crystal
hike next summer. He has hud experi

could make It a paying venture.
A correspondent of a Wayne county
paper tukes our councilinen by the
metaphorical ear, shakes their anatomy
up considerably and bluntly tells them
that they gave a traction franchise to
a company on paper so thnt they would
he uble to withhold It from the Lacka
wanna Itapid Transit company. That
company now runs from Carbondale to
Vandling and Intermediate points, and
the correspondent estimates that dur
ing the holiday time alone Forest City
lost I.10U In trade because Vandling and
Uichmondale were connected with Car
bondale by trolley, while If the people
of those places got to Forest City they
had to walk. Xow all this may or may
not be so, hut we cnll the attention of
our esteemed fellow townsman to the
fact that he Is hardly consistent, for
further on in his article he spoils what
he has said at first by saying that "the
road Is a public nuisance" and by
dubbing It a "public man killer."
