The Harrisburg authorities are finding
some of the counties and townships rather
slow In paying their share of the road
improvement cost. The State builds the
roads and pays all the money in the first
instance, but under the law the counties
and townships are required to reimburse
the State in a certain per cent, within
thirty days after the road is completed.
It is stated that the delinquency now
amounts to about $500,000, which the
State is going to collect if it can. So far
as we know no complaint Is made as to
Wayne county or the townships in which
road improvements have been made.
The postal savings bank bill is con
fronted with a thorny path in this and
the next Congress. Though it is a meas
ure advocated in the Republican plat
form, there are indications that senti
ment has changed on the subject. The
monetary commission investigated con
ditions abroad, and its members aro now
on record as being against the govern
ment engaging in the banking business.
The National Bankers' Association is
strongly against the proposition, and it
is claimed It would prove an expensive
department for the government to main
tain, costing far more than any possible
revenue which could be derived from it
One of the most significant develop
ments in the last ten years has been the
adoption of pension plans by more than
seventy great corporations. This is one
of the most tangible ways in which wage
earners have profited from the recent in
dustrial prosperity. In 1898 the pension
idea was practically foreign to this conn
try : now it is very much in the air. In
that year only one railroad, the Haiti
more & Ohio, systematically granted re
tirement allowances ; since 1808, eigh
teen lines, representing one-third of the
railway mileage of this country, have
adopted automatic pension schemes.
Ten years ago almost none of America's
great industrial corporations regularly
made provision for their old men j now
the largest do so, or have at present
plans under way to that end.
Dr. J. O. Kaldfus deprecates the use
of high power guns by hunters andclalms
that the result of the fall hunting season
shows that he is right. He says: "I am
in receipt of numerous complaints con'
cerning dangers arising from the use of
the high" power guns, the orguments be
ing that because of thick undergrowth in
Pennsylvania the hunter is often not
able to see game or secure a shot at a
greater distance than that at which black
powder would be effective, and that,
therefore, the use of high power is un
necessary. While we have been to an
extent relieved of danger to human life
through the passage of the law compel!
ing deer hunters to look before they shoot,
there is still serious danger threatened by
the use of this gun, and it should be pro
hibited in Pennsylvania.

THE DIMMICK BOOM.
, Ben Dlmmlck's Private Secre
tary Kabatchnlck Speaks Right
Out Why Our Former Towns
man Soould be Knox's Suc
cessor. Myer Kabatchnlck, private Secretary
of our former townsman, now Mayor of
Scranton, J. Ben. Dimmick, has been
visiting the City of Brotherly Love, and
reading the riot act as to Mr. Dim
mick's claims to the United States Sena
torship, made vacant by the promotion
of Senator Knox to a cabinet position.
Ho says of Mr. Dimmick :
"He has civen to Scranton a business
administration that has made our city
noted among municipalities of the union.
Upon the foundation of honesty and
great natural ability, he has added cul
ture and the study of governmental af
fairs so that in our estimation he stands
head and shoulders above any man who
has been suggested as Senator Knox's
Suchinfluential papers as the Wilkes-
Barre Record and all the Scranton pa
pers, irrespective of party, have declar
ed in his favor before the movement for
him was fairly under way. In fact, it
cannot be said to be under way even
"Just what will be done by the men
who are urging his candidacy has not
been decided but it will be aggressive
and whole-souled ; of that there is no
"Of course, the formal launching of
his candidacy will probably be mado in
Scranton, but it will immediately have
a wider scope than our city limits. His
nativo county woyne, ona our neign
boring counties, Luzerne, Monroe, Sus
quehanna, Wyoming, Carbon and
Schuylkill will be Invited to go along.
"This movement has dock oi it tno
union of all elements in the party in
Northeastern Pennsylvania. It is in
spiring because it has as its candidate a
clean upright citizen of towering ability.

"We of the northeast have never had
a United States senator to represent us,
Wo have up there the only anthracite
region in the world and a great manu
facturing territory. It is time there
should come representation for these
elements. We feel that the western part
of the state will be ably represented by
the presence in the cabinet ot Mr. Knox
and that should satisfy it.
"We mean business, rue men who
are back of Mayor Dimmick are of the
type that will fight harder against op
position." We can't quite agree with the Al-
toona Tribune in its idea that education
is "a drawing out" instead of a "pour
ing in." Of course everything depends
upon what the Tribune's definition of
"education" is. Webster gives us as
one of the meanings of the word, "to
prepare and fit for any calling or bust
ness by systematic instruction," and we
well remember hearing Principal Reu
ben Nelson, of good old Wyoming Sem
inary memory, lay it down as a rule.
that, "you can't get anything .out of
your head that you don't put into it."
But here is the Tribune's argument:
"Some of the successful men of the
day never had many advantages, either
in the way of education or social sur
roundings. But that is nothing against
education. All the moral one can ex
tract from such circumstances is that
no system in the world will make a suc
cessful man out of one who has no abil
ity. It is quite sure that education is a
drawing out, .not a pouring in. You
cannot teach a man anything who lacks
the capacity. On the other hand, it is
very difficult to keep down one who has
the root of the matter in him. If he
have native intelligence he will get the
education somehow. "
William V. Dolph, a brother of John
N. Dolph, formerly principal of the
Honesdale Schools, now Superintendent
of the Port Jervis Schools, died at his
home in Montour Falls, Schuylkill Co
N. Y., Tuesday morning, Dec. 22, 1908,
after a protracted illness, in the 72d
year of his age. Mr. Dolph had been
postmaster of Montour Falls for eight
years, and County Justice of Sessions
for many years. He visited Honesdale
on two or three occasions while Prof,
Dolph was located here.
"Paid In Full."
Walter P. Eaton, tho well known
writer on the New York Morning Sun,
says of Eugene Walter's play, "Paid in
Full," which has been the dramatic
sensation of both Chicago and New
York, playing for five months in tho for
mer city and now being in its second
year in the eastern metropolis:
"Not since the watcher sat silent up
on a chair in the Princess Theatre two
years ago, and saw 'The Great Divide
swim into his ken, has the weary yet
hopeful theatregoer experienced that
thrill of discovery felt by everybody at
the Astor Theatre last evening,
'"Paid in Full' was the play j Eu
gene Walter, the author. It is not quite
his first play, but it is the first to reach
Broadway, for reasons that are too
saddening to discuss now. Hence for
the audience last night there was joy in
the discovery. Eugene Walter's future
work will be awaited with interest and
watched with attention. Ho has de
cisively joined the too small band of in

A Double Barreled Torpedo.
One of our naval commanders has
Invented n torpedo which may do
more mischief to an enemy's battle
ship than one of those "all big gun"
Dreadnoughts we are launching. This
new torpedo, shoots twice, so to speak
that Is, It makes two holes Instead
of one In the target. Theoretical
ly the old torpedo would rip a hole
In the side of a warship and let n wa
ter enough to, sink her. As n rule.
how'ever, torpedoed ships have kept
afloat until the repair shop made them
ns good as over.
The shell of a big gun will do more
diunago to a warship than any torpe
do, provided It explodes Inside the
vessel, say In the engine room or mag'
azlne. But a Bhell may pass through
a vessel, leaving only two small holes
and n few wrecked things In Its wake.
The torpedo which becomes the ex
clusive property of the United State's
becnuse an officer In servtco devised It,
will smash a big hole In the armor
where It strikes and at the same time
project a shell carrying a fuse timed
to explode it at any desired distance
Inside. Unfortunately this govern
inent cannot monopolize the genius of
tho world, and If war comes to us the
enemy may have somo contrivance
that will sink a battleship as effectual
ly as our double acting torpedo.
Tho Year's Happenings Abroad,

been forced to swallow disappoint

When tho Turkish constitution of
1870 was restored In July the act was
believed to bo a concession to reform

result was tho loss to Turkey of the

Roumella and the nominally Turkish
provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Whether Turkey will now be decent
