The Citizen has made arrange
ments with the Citizens' Telephone Co.
whereby the paper will receive the elec
tion newa on Tuesday night direct from
New York, by longdistance phone. The
returns, to such an extent as is possible
will be thrown on the Spencer advertis
ing screen near the town hall, by stere
opticon. At the annual meeting of the stock
holders of the South Side Bank, of Scran
ton, last week, S. S. Spruks, formerly of
this place, was elected first vice presi
dent and director, and J. Benjamin Dim
mick also a member of the board of di
rectors. There is not a banking concern
or trust company in 'Scranton in which
Honesdale families are not represented.
It is stated that work willcommence
very soon on the erection of the hospital
buildings at Farview. A representative
of the Philadelphia firm that was award
ed the contract was in Way mart the
early part of last week seeking ac
commodations for fifty men who will be
employed in the preliminary work. It
is said that hotel accommodations at the
present time at Waymart are not suffici
ent to take care of that number of men.
The Carbondale Leader says that if
rumors prove true that city will lose
between twenty-five and thirty residents
owing to the recent change made by the
Srie company in shipping west bound
coal over the main line by way of Lack
a waxen. The Leader thinks that if the
reported arrangement is carried out
Port Jervis will come in for a substan
tial boom, as that is one of the big
centers of the Erie, and more crews will
be required at that point to handle the
coal in transit from Lackawaxen to
The City Water Co., of Scranton, is
considering a project for bringing a
water supply to that town from the
vicinity of Fleetville, plans involving a
tunnel three miles long through the moun
tain at Clark's Summit. The scheme,
as outlined, is a gigantic one, estimated
to cost two and a half million dollars to
get in working border ; as it will neces
sitate the draining of water for a dis
tance of nearly ten miles, overland and
through the tunnel, and from the Sum
mit to Scranton, through pipes twenty
six inches in diameter.
Seeing the "Amendments to the
Constitution" advertisement running co
incidentally with the election proclama
mation, a good many people are wonder
ing how they will vote on the proposed
amendments this fall, and inquiries have
been fired at clerks in State, county and
city offices. As a matter of information,
it may bo stated that the people do not
vote on them at all. The amendments
are advertised for tho purpose of en
lightening the people, and if the coming
Legislature passes the resolutions they
will be laid before the voters of the
State next November.
To-morrow evening is Hallowe'en.
Let us hope, that the young people who
are in the habit of taking advantage of
the vigil not simply to indulge in the
harmless pranks which older people arc
disposed to overlook or excuse, but to
destroy property, remove gates and
signs, blockade streets and make them
selves general nuisances, will behave
with more propriety on this anniversary.
Boys will be boys, and girls will be girls,
without doubt, but there is no need for
boys to become rowdies, or girls tom
boys on Hallowe'en any more than on
any other night. In many towns special
policemen have been appointed with
instructions to arrest such roysterers as
violate ordinances and for the time be
ing make themselves obnoxious to quiet
citizens, but we can't believe that such
precautions are needed here. Surely
with this word of admonition our lads
and lasses will temper their fun iwith a
decent regard for the rights of others,.
The Honesdale banks will be closed
Tuesday, November 3rd. Election day.
The "Dutch Supper" in the Presby
terian chapel, on the evening of the 22d,
was a most complete success. The in
terior of the building was very elabor
ately decorated with the German and
American colors. The guests were pro
vided for at tables neatly arranged around
the gallery and in both of the parlors.
They were presided over by "Dutch"
matrons and maidens, becomingly at
tired. There were songs by a number
of little "Dutch" girls, and others. The
net proceeds were $12G,21.
A letter from Carlisle, Pa., dated
Oct. 22, 1908, contains the following
paragraph of personal interest :
"ft may be of interest to you and to
the readers of your paper to learn that
at the recent election of officers for the
Senior Class of the Dickinson School of
Law, Chester A.Garrett, of White Mills,
was unanimously elected to the office of
Secretary. There is a considerable rival
ry for the class offices, which speaks
well for the popularity of the successful
candidates. CheBter has always been
one of the active men in his class, and
is well thought of by all. He is one of
the most industrious students in the
School, and will deserve good rank up
on his graduation in June, 1909."
A very pleasant banquet was given
with Commissioner J. K. Hornbeckand
John Brown, of the Allen House, as hosts
to about fifty of their personal friends
at Hotel Heumann, on Tuesday evening
last. The menu was excellent from the
first course to the last. Hon. John

We have been shown a letter from
Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, Commissioner of
the State Department of Health, to
Health officer Dr. B. Schermerhorn,
which sustains the doctor in his opinion
that the water of a certain spring within
the borough limits is contaminated, and
suggests that it is at present inadvis
able to use it for domestic purposes
without half an hour's boiling. It is also
advised that the spring be disinfected
with unslaked lime ; then cleaned out
and allowed to refill, after which fresh
samples of the water should be subjected
to analysis. The Commissioner's letter
does not state positively, however, that
there were any typhoid bacilli in the
specimens already examined by the ex

A Letter From A New MHford
New Milford, Pa., Oct. 27, IMS.
EmvAitn B. Gavittk, M. 1).
White Mills, Pa.
My Dear Doctor:
Your letter of inquiry regarding the
place of residence of my neighbor Col.
C. C. Pratt received to-day. 1 am justly
proud to state to you that Col. Pratt is
a resident of New Milford, Pa. He was
born and grew up in this town ; was
away from here some seven or eight
years when a young man, but for the
last thirty years his residence has been
For the last five years he has closed
his house for a few months in the win
ter and gone to Biugliamton, where
Mrs. Pratt's mother has her home and
where the children could attend a high
school without leaving home. He was
here every few days to look after his
business and to get his mail and always
came here to vote.
Now doctor, 1 have lived a near neigh
bor to Col. C. C. Pratt for eighteen
years, during which time 1 have been
his family physician and have had many
business dealings with him.
He is a broad minded christian gentle
man of more than average ability and n
desire to see every man have a squat c
deal, and especially to help the poor
man who is trying to help himself.
They have always lived in a rented
house when in Binghamton, and Mrs.
Pratt has an electric runabout which
she runs herself and kept at a garage.
The dealer who sold them the ear,
Sherman Lewis, of Binghamton, pro
cured a license to run the car gave the
residence as Binghamton, N. Y., with
out consulting them.
I see that The Daily Times Record of
Sayre, Pa., is claiming that this license
to run a motor car in Binghamton is
evidence that Mr. Pratt is a resident of
Binghamton. Of course this will not
injure Mr. Pratt where he is known, and
I hope that the sensible people of tliif
Congressional district will recognize tint
political trick which is being worked on
Col. C. C. Pratt should receive the
vote of every man in this Congressional
District who has the best interest of the
country at heart regardless of his p:u
ticular party. Yours fraternally,
A. E. S.nydeh.'m. I).

Tho coming of "Girls" to the Lyric,
on Wednesday, Nov. 4th, will bo anx
iously awaited by local theatre goers.
"Girls" is just what could bo expected
from the pen of tho versatile and sur
prising Clyde Fitch. Dramatic critics
are loud in their praise of both play,
production, and presenting company,
and all seem to bo of tho same opinion
that there is nothing so refreshing after
a hard day's work as to spend an even
ing with "Girls," and listen to tho spark
ling dialogue of the "man-haters," and
to witness tho innocent trouble they suc
ceed in making for themselves.

haters," the newest comedy by Clydo

successes to tho stage, will bo the mag

Tho skirmishing is all over, tho plan
of battle is marked out. The Democratic
leaders have concentrated their forces in

didates is defending his job in the Court
House. The Republicans are massing
their forces all over the county. The
men of Buckingham and Manchester
under tho leadership of Polk Hornbeck;
the men of Preston, Mount Pleasant and
Lebanon will rally around Perham, who
will be supported by Larrabee with the
Scott and Starucca legions. "Up from
the South at break of dawn" will come
the old reliables of Lehigh, Dreher, Ster
ling, Salem, Lake, Hawley, Paupack and
South Canaan, with Madden and Lesher
in the load. The tribes of Damascus
and Oregon with the Berlinites will come
fiom the East with banners Hying, shout
ing and voting for Barnes ; Blake, with
headquarters in the saddle, will marshal
the men of Bethany, Dyberry, Clinton,
Waymart, Prompton, and old Canaan,
