Great Disappointment on Account
of Unfavorable Change of Plans
Parade Greatly Curtailed.
The apprehensions felt in Honesdale
yesterday morning, when the heavy snow
storm set in, that the blizzard might ex
tend to Washington and seriously inter
fere with the elaborate arrangements
made for the inauguration of President
Taft, were more than realized. Ateleven
o'clock, through the courtesy and kind
ness of A. J. Coleman & Co., stock
brokers, with office at the Allen House,
The Citizen received the following dis
patch from the National Capital received
by wireless at Philadelphia :
"The blizznrd is racine here this morn
ing. Washington and Baltimore wires
are down. The inauguration parade
will be largely curtailed, and the inaug
uration ceremonies will take place In
the Senate Chamber, and not at the east
front of the Capitol, as is customary,

The weather conditions at Washington
this year were unfavorable beyond prece
dent on any similar occasion. On Wed
nesday the streets were filled with a
surging, jostling crowd, the visitors at
that time being estimated at 00,000,
with the hotels jammed to their capacity,
and the streets thronged, while bands
were playing and thousands marching
in a drenching downpour of rain. It was
almost impossible to make much head
way along Pennsylvania Avenue in the
evening, owing to the tremendous
throngs, and automobiles were renting
at $12 an hour. Notwithstanding the
fact that everybody, so to speak, wrs
soaking wet, everybody wbb happy in
anticipation of more pleasant weather
on the morrow, and an opportunity to
witness a pageant surpassing anything
ever heretofore seen in this country on a
The 'thousands who found themselves
so grievously disappointed yesterday
morning, and especially the Honesdale
contingent in the military display, have
the sincere sympathy and commisera
tion of The Pitizen. There is one great
comfort, after all, with which wo may
console ourselves: no matter .what the
weather, another Republican president
was inaugurated, and his first message,
which will be found elsewhere in this
paper, affords the best of evidence that
for four years to come, at least, there
will be no diminution in the sunshine of
State protection may be withdrawn
from the Turkey buzzard. Under the
new game laws, drafted by State Game
Commissioner Knlbfus and approved by
the legislative committee of the Stnte
Sportmen's Association, the protection
given for years to the eagle, the osprey
or fish hawk and the great blue heron
has been taken away, it being consider
ed that such birds are not beneficial and
entitled to the protection of the law
The removal of the bar to killing of the
slow-sailing scavengers of the fields and
woods is urged and the committee oh
game will be asked to put it on the pro
scribed list. The reason for this move
ment is said to be the statement of the
State veterinary authorities, who have
been fighting foot and mouth disease
among cattle, that the buzzard is a con
sumer of carrion and that by eating re
mains of a cow which may have been
infected with the cattle plague may
spread it. Some of .the country mem'
bers who consider the buzzard a bene
factor will oppose this action and the
buzzard may be the cause of a row
among members of the lawmaking body.
A BILL has been presented in the
House by Mr. Dunsmore, of Tioga, re
quiring State inspectors' approval of
premises used for moving picture shows
and precautions against fire in third
class cities, boroughs and townships
and vesting jurisdiction over fire escapes
in the department. The bill covers
buildings used for public purposes in all
parts of the State except flrstand second
class cities, and requires fire escapes
doors opening outward and landings
four feet in longth. Regulations are
made prohibiting use of oil as an illu
rainant, requiring non-combustible enr
tains and standpipes. This bill is de
signed to prevent a repetition of the
Members of the State police who have
been out on detailed duty during the

This action is not being taken because
of fear of strikes or anything of the kind
but because of the expiration of the ap

men will be sent' out on. summer details
which will include assisting to enforce

Work on Hospital Protfrcsslatf-

The work on the proposed hospital for
criminal insane at Farview is progres-
singmost satisfactorily and, if the present
mild weather continues for two weeks
onger, everything will be in readiness to
begin the laying of the concrete.
On Tuesday evening, the 2d inat., a
meeting of the tax payers and citizens
of Canaan township, was held in the
Canaan Comers Hotel, for the purpose
of discussing the Bubjcct of building a
new macadamized or tilford road from
a point near the line dividing the bor
ough of Waymart from the township of
Canaan west, on the Honesdale road,
and extend straight across the mountain
duo west, to a point north of old No. 7
on the D. A H. Gravity and to join with
a similar road on the line d!,,iding Wayne
and Lackawanna counties, and which
shall extend to Fell township, Lacka
wanna county, to the D. A H. H. R.,
crossing at white's nag station. J. lie
advisability and desirability of construct
ing such a road is so apparent that
nothing can bo said against it. As is
known, the State furnishes six-eighths
of the money when such roads are con
structed under the auspices of the state
law governing public highways. A pe
tition, numerously signed by the tax
payers of Fell township, through which
the road will extend in Lackawanna
county, has been prepared and is ready
for presentation to the courts of that
county, asking for a board of viewers to
be appointed, whose duty it will be to
lay out a definite and exact route for
the construction of that road. This can
not be done, however, until similar pro
ceedings are instituted in Wayne coun
ty, hence at an early date a petition will
be presented to the court of Wayne coun
ty, asking, for a board of viewers to de
fine proper lines for the building of the
road in this county.

Taft's Inaugural Address.1
(Continued from first pnee.l
The Labor Question.
There Is one other matter to which I
hall refer. It was made tho subject,
of great controversy during the elec
tion and colls for at least a. passing
reference now. My distinguished pred
ecessor has given much attention to
tho cause of labor, with whose strug
gle for better things ho has shown tho
slncerest sympathy. At his instance
congress has passed tho bill fixing tho
liability of interstate carriers to their
employees for injury sustained In tho
courso of employment, abolishing the
rulo of fellow servant nnd the common
law rule as to contributory negligence
and substituting therefor tho so called
rulo of comparative negligence. It has
also passed a law fixing tho compen
sation of government employees for
Injuries sustained In tho employ of the
government through the negligence of
the superior. It also passed' n model
child labor law for the District of Co
lumbia. In previous administrations
an arbitration law for Interstate com
merce railroads nnd their employees
und laws for the application of safety
devices to snvo tho lives and limbs of
omployecs of Interstate railroads had
been passed. Additional legislation of
this kind was passed by the outgoing
I wish to say that, In so far as I can.
I hope to promote 'the enactment of
further legislation of this character.
I nnr strongly convinced 'that the gov
ernment should make Itself ns respon
slblo to employees Injured. In Its era,
ploy as on Interstate railway corpora.
Hon Is made responsible by federal
law to its employees, and I shall be
glad, whenever any additional reasona.
bio safety device con be Invented to
reduce the loss of life and limb among
railway emnloyees, to urge coucross
to require Its ndoptlon by Interstate
Use of Injunctions Necessary.
Another labor question 1ms arisen
which has awakened the most excited
discussion. That Is In respect to the
power of the federal courts to issue
Injunctions In industrial disputes. As
to that, my convictions are fixed. Take
away from courts, if It could be taken
nwny, tho power to Issue Injunctions
In labor disputes, and It would create
a privileged class among the laborers
nnd save tho lawless among their num
ber from u most needful remedy nvnll-
nble to all men for the protection of
their business against lawless Invasion
The proposition that business Is not a
property or pecuniary right which can
be protected by equitable Injunction Is
utterly without foundation In prece
dent or reason. The proposition Is
usually linked with one to make the
secondary boycott lawful. Such a
proposition Is at variance with the
American instinct and will find no
support, In my judgment, when submit
ted to the American people.. The sec.
ondary boycott Is an Instrument of
tyranny and ought not to be made
The Issuing of a temporary restrain
Ing order without notice has in several
instances been abused by Its incon
slderate exercise, and to remedy this
tho platform upon which I wns elect
ed recommends tho formulation In n
statute of the conditions under which
such n temporary estralnlng order
ought to Issue. A statute can and
ought to be framed to embody the best
modern practice and can bring the sub
ject so closely to tho attention of tho
court as to make abuses of tho process
unlikely In the future. American peo
ple, If I understand thorn, Insist that
the authority of the courts shall be
sustained nnd are opposed to nny
change In the procedure by which the
powers of a court may he weakened
and tho fearless and effective admin
istration of Justice be Interfered with.
Having thus reviewed the questions
likely to recur during my administra
tion and having expressed In a sum
mary way tho position which I expect
to take In recommendations to con
gress and in my conduct ns an execu
tive, I invoke the considerate sym
pathy nnd support of my fellow citi
zens and the aid of Almighty God In
tho discharge of my responsible duties.

Everybody has the chicken fever and
will attempt to increase the tempera
ture a few degrees. "What is the best
feed?" Well, let me say right here,
that the standards of rations set up in
many poultry journals and poultry books
known . a the narrow ration, aro very
expensive when you ndd to the cost of
the great number of eggs one never gets
by using these balanced rations, i lie
most deadening winter feed I know of
is one compounded largely of theproteln
element. 1 have often wondered wheth
er the men who condemn corn as n food
for laying hens ever owned a, chicken.
These people forget in their theorizing,
mat energy is worm more in a laying
hen than anything else, and energy
comes from the carbonaceous foods.
Did you ever stop to think whv hens lav
better just as winter breaks up than at
any other time of the year V It is the
excess of carbon in the system that en
ables thein to grow eggB nt that time.
This heat also stimulates the sexual
system. This idea that the lieu needs
a big lot of protein to form eggs is all
nonsense. Analyze the droppings, and
vou will seo where the nroteincoes when
you feed it strongly. There is no other
aii-arouna loouas good as corn, wnen
ever you reduce the amount of corn fed,
and substitute something more album
inous, tho hens reduce the number of
eggs. I hnve known people wlio leu
nothing but corn to go far aneau ot
narrow ration fellows in eee production.
The reason for this is that corn produces
heat, and all bent producers arouse
the sexual nature, and this is what we
should aim to do. Do not bo afraid of
corn, but do not use it exclusively ; no
groin is n proper exclusive food.
