A largo delegation of the promi nent citizens of Wnyno county call ed on tho county commissioners on Tuesday and mnde a request that thoy avail themselves of the propo sition made by tho State Armory Board of Pennsylvania to place an armory in Honesdale for tho bene fit of tho Wayne county members of the National Gunrd, the State Armory Board agreeing to placo a building costing from $15,00o to $20,000, If the county would fur nish the site. The delegation re quested the commissioners to ap propriate $1,000 and called their at tention to the fact that the State Legislature had passed an Act giv ing them the authority not only to make this npproprlntion but furth ermore recommended that the same be done. The attention of the com missioners wns called to the fact that under the old enrollment net, Wayne county wns taxed 50 cents on encli male citizen over 18 nnd under 45 yenrs of age, capable of bearing arms, and as we have an enrollment of 3500 this meant a tax of $1730 each year. The new National Guard act repealed this law and saved I Wnyno county this amount each year and consequently tho members of : tho National Guard (Company E) of Wnyno county, who by their ol J untary services save this amount , to the county each year, are entitled to a home. Tho commissioners went into session, and finding that tho law hail been properly quoteu, nnd that they were under obligations to the citizen soldiery of the county, agreed to appropriate $1,000 to wards a site, tho citizens of Hones dale to furnish tho balance. It was tho general Impression of those who were present and listen ed to the arguments of the delega tion, that the action of the commis sioners was wise, and should win : for them the commendation of the t people of Wayne county. 1act!cr.s or TactlulV "Waiters who hire out for parties oight to be trained for that," said ono who has suffered.
