A DaAIc Surprise.
On Saturday morning last a local sen
sation was sprung in Hoaesdale by the
arrest of ex-District Attorney Herman
Ilarmes, one of the most highly esteemed
members of the Wayne county bar, on a
barge df criminal libel, preferred by
Horace E. Williams, of West street. The
arrest was made by detective M. J. Gar
rahan, of Scran ton, under direction bf
Attorney Thomas D. Shea, of the Lu
zerne county bar. Mr. Harmes was at
once taken before Judge George 8. Purdy,
who was asked to put him under $1,000
bonds for his appearance at court. After
preliminary hearing in which Mr.
Harmes was represented by Attorneys
T. Searle and F. P. Kimble, Judge
Purdy accepted Mr. Harraes's personal
recognizance in $100 for his appearance
The libel charge against Attorney
Harmes is alleged to be contained in the
following letter, written to Mr. Williams
nearly five months ago:
Office of Herman Harmes,
Honesdalc. Pa., Oct. 16. 'OS.
Mr. Horace E. Williams:
Dear Sir : Information has been made
to me that you have for some time been
using towards your wife profane, in
decent and vile language, ana have
threatened to drive her and vour two
children from your home; and that your
conduct towaras your wiienas been dis
reputable in every respect.
Now unless this conduct or. your part
ceases at once, and you treat your wife
and children as you should, legal meas
ures will be taken on the part of her
friends and neighbors to bring you to
justice. lours truly.
(blgned) HERMAN HARMES.
Instead of finding anything libellous
in the foregoing letter of the then dis
trict attorney, the ordinary layman, ac
customed to regarding Mr. Harmes as
rebable in his statements and conserva
tive in his actions, will be likely to re
gard the communication as another in
stance of the former district attorney's
forbearance and disposition to avert do
mestic scandal among his townspeople.
On the other hand it is only justice to
Mr. Williams to say that he is also re
garded as a worthy and law-abiding citi
zen, and that the suggestions embodied
in the letter quoted will be a great sur
prise to a large circle of friends.
The sad death of Watson E. Beach, of.
Milanvillc, was briefly mentioned in The
Citizen of February 21th. To what
was then said of his exceptionally genial
disposition, polite deportment and gen
erous heart, as exemplified in all of his
intercourse with his large circle of ac
quaintances, a few facts as to the de
tails of his personal and business career
should be made a matter of record. He
was born at Cairo, Green county, N. Y.,
March 25th, 1850, anddiedFebruary IGth,
1900. His parents were Eli and Mary
Ann (Gay) Beach, both of New England
origin, and always of high social posi
tion. When the subject of this notice
was of tender years the family removed
to Damascus township, this county.
where, later on, Watson E. attended the
district school and the Damascus Union
Academy, afterward entering the High
School at Monticello, N. Y., where he'
graduated with honors. He then com-!
pletcd his business education by ncours:
in the Eastman Commercial College, at
Poughkeepsie, N. Y. On his return to
his home at Milanville he began work in
the store of his father and brother (the
firm of E. Beach & Son) of which he
later became by purchase the proprietor,
After doing a successful business fcr
some years, he disposed of the store and
went to North Platte, Nebraska, where
he bought an interest in the cattle ranch
owned bv his father and brother (the
latter the late Hon. J. Howard Beach)
and the late Ira Nichols. While in North
Platte he purchased the North Platte
National Bank and conducted the same
for several years. While thus engaged
he came east and was united in marriage
with Miss Helen, daughter of the late
David McCulIough, of Cochecton, N. Y.,
whom he took back with him to his Ne
braska home. After a prosperous busi
ness career of several years in North
Platte, he returned to Cochecton, N. Y.,
where he lived until the death of his wife.
He then returned to Milanville, where
he'epent the remainder of his days. For
over thirty years he was a prominent
member of Delaware Lodge No. 501,
Free and Accepted Masons, and was most
highly esteemed by his brethren in that
fraternity. His death is mourned by bit
daughter, Mrs. Romaine Beach Carpen
ter, of Burlington, Vermont ; three sis
ters, Mrs. Matilda H. Connor, Mrs.
Mary A. Appley, and Mrs. Adelia S.
Nichols, and a brother, Charles E. Beach,
all of Milanville. Tbe funeral services
were held on Friday, February lOUi, at
11 a. M., Rev. Joseph A. Coleman, of
the M. E. church, in charge, assisted by
church, M. L. Skinner had charge of
the arrangements. The attendr-nce was
the largest ever known in Milanville
since the death of the father and brother
of the deceased, several years ago.
, There was a time when the speaker
counted that day lost whose low de
scending sun did not witness some
new gem of humor Incorporated Into
the sacred pages of the Record. Now
whenever a statesman gets off some
thing pretty good his friends predict
that his defeat in the next elections la
certain. There Is J. Adam' Bede of
Minnesota, for example. J. Adam has
been for numerous years one of the
shining funny men in congress. It
has been Impossible to pass even an
appropriation bill without some side
splitting thing from him being em
balmed in the Record.
Housa Loses a Humorist.
te bouse after March 4 -will lose
asaan who Is regarded as one of
.really greatest humorists that
Jus ever known. John Sharp
Williams of Mississippi Is a master of
sarcasm, but the streak of genuine
American humor which runs through
his Intellect gives to every utterance
he makes a charm which sets even
his enemies laughing.
Here Is a humorist who In the time
between his departure- from the house
and his entrance Into the senate In
tends to' write a life of Thomas Jeffer
son. His successor as minority leader,
Champ Clark of Missouri, Is one of
the noted wits of the house. He will
be In the next congress, of course,
and may be expected to make lively
many a dry debate. The tilts of hu
mor between Clark and General Gros
venor of Ohio, now an ex-congressman,
afforded amusement for many
generations of soions.

the professional humorists of the

Thad Stevens' Generosity.
The good old humorists of the early
days seem to be passing. There are
few men now In congress who can be
put In the same class with "Sunset'
Cox or Thad Stevens. Old Thad had
a fine sense of humor. One day dur
l"Z the civil war. the burden or wntcn
bc waa carrying on his shoulders he
stepped Into one of the gambling dens
which Infested Washington on his
way to the capltol. He wou a couple
of hundred dollars at a faro bank and
then, accompanied by a friend, resum
ed his way to the house.
Just as he was about to go into the
t building there hailed him a delegation
of Quakers from his native state,
Pennsylvania. They wanted him to
make a contribution for a worthy
charity up Harrisburg way and had
come to Washington to obtain a small
donation from blm. Old Thad dug
Into his pocket, pulled out the $200
the faro dealer had shoved over to
blm and handed It to the chair
man of the delegation. The Quakers
were loud In their thanks. Finally
they bowed themselves away, over
whelmed with his generosity. Old
Thad turned to bis companion and
"God moves In a mysterious way his
wonders to perform."

The approaching completion of the
High School buildings will soon neces
sitate the grading and arrangement of
the school property grounds. No one is
more interested in having this work
properly done than the pupils who are
to use them, and no landscape gardener
should attempt the task without con
sulting them. In order to stimulate
suggestion on this point The Citizen
offers the scholars of the High School
two prizes of $1.00 each for the best two
essays on "The Best Way to Arrange
the New School House Grounds," the
competition to close April 1st. The ar
ticles, which must not exceed two hun
dred words in length, are not to be
signed, but the name of the writer must
be written on a separate slip, and en
closed in an envelope with the essay.
The contributions will benumbered and
submitted to competent judges who will
decide on their respective merits. The
winning essays with the names of the
authors will appear in the first number
of The Citizen following the award.
