"Our murderous Fourth" a Port
Jervls preacher called it. Strong
language, but pretty moderately ver
acious after all!
Three or four real warm days, one
right after the other, and the conser
vative Wayne county citizen will bid
the winter understuff sklddoo. Hut
will we get 'em!
And after all that rain, Wayne
county pastures are said to be not
much more than half what they
should be. Must we move to
Washington will be the Deserted
Village tomorrow, her political men
from both sides of the party fence
swallowed up in the great outpour
ing of populace at a Xew York gang
plank. To bring up a child in the way he
should go, why Just travel that way
yourself once in a while. Gilbert
ville cor. of Stroudsburg Times.
No sort of use; it ain't human
Honesdale may not get quite so
safe and sane a Fourth as some cities
expect and others are to demand;
but Honesdale, it goes without elab
orate argument, is going to ego a
prosperous Fourth. With most of
the glass men at work once more,
drawing good wages and spending
their money in the place where they
earn it; with another shop coming to
swell the list of local industries;
with Wayne county gardens looking
up after the rainy spell, and five-cent
milk when most places in the East
are paying six and seven who says
we are not going to feel extra good
on the great patriotic holiday this
Hoke Smith will not run again for
governor of Georgia. He planned to
be governor again and to make a sec
ond term in the state house at At
lanta the stepping-stone to the sen
atorship on which he long has had
his solicltious eyes. The Hon. Hoke
says he has not pulled out because
he fears another primary licking like
unto that of 190S from "Little Joe"
Brown. He says he cares not a red
cent for the antipathy and antagon
ism of the railroads. Probably, then,
he is forced out of the running by
his aversion to more misspelling of
the good old Peachtree name of
Hoke on the part of the newspapers,
at least a score of which Including
one in the governor's own congres
sional district alluded to him as
The most important state conven
tion of the summer comes next week
in Ohio. Gov. Judson Harmon, who
carried the state by 27,000 the same
day that sas Taft get the Buckeye
electoral vote by 00,000, will be nam
ed again. The prevalent opinion in
the middle west is that if he is not
opposed by an extra strong candi
date, the Democratic governor of
Ohio, a man of prodigious personal
popularity, may succeed himself at
Columbus. If this should happen, the
1912 nomination of Harmon would ho
inevitable. The strongest Republi
cans in the state Burton, Garfield
and Cole have turned the nomina
tion down. Nick Longworth, the
hard man to elect, is again proposed.
His nomination would bo the worst
blunder tho Buckoyo Republicans
could commit at this critical moment.
The son-in-law of Col. Roosevelt,
more or less of a Joke In Washing
ton, would bo moro than that in an
effort to unhorse Gov. Harmon. Tho
Democratic candidate for anothor
term at Columbus must bo met with
heavier timber or Ohio will have an
other Democratic governor and tho
1912 ticket will carry tho name of a
powerful Ohio Democrat for president.
Glenn Curtiss, who flew down the
Hudson at a mile a minute, got $10,
000 for the Job but a correspond
ent asks, Has he got it now? Not all
of it, probably. Aviator Curtiss hap
pens to be married, you know.
That St. Louis editor who believes
the grewsome Job of coroner ought
to be wiped off the face of the earth
must be one of those rare, happy and
peaceful souls of the Fourth Estate
whose fear of a violent death at his
desk Is not so distressing ns his fear
of the sheriff and the sheriff's pad
lock. That plan perfected down in Ari
zona by which incorrigible boys nre
to be sent to a summer camp in the
mountains, where they are to govern
themselves, does not look like the
very worst form of punishment that
could be devised. Woman's National
Now, what would have been the
matter with giving those "incorrigi
bles" a football and compelling the
whole gang to go to It for a week?
Citizens imbued with the idea that
New York needs good government
and also with the realization that
under Charles Evans Hughes she has
been getting it deplore tho fact that
the governor Is going to move away
permanently, but Just the same the
average newspaper reader will be
delighted by the retirement of that
Incessant sentence, "the governor was
attended by Col. George Curtis Tread
well, his military secretary." Here's
.some compensation for the pain of
parting from so excellent an execu
tive as Gov. Hughes.
Scranton Is fortunate indeed in the
prospect of seeing Mrs. Phil Sheri
dan in her midst when, on the
Fourth, the beautiful Sheridan mon
ument is dedicated. "Fighting Phil"
was the most brilliant commander of
the Civil war and every American
heart is proud of the work he did to
preserve the Union, but then, we all
know It's "the girl behind the man
behind the gun" that often furnishes
Southern chivalry, too often prone
to urge Itself as the motive for fool
ish actions in the country below the
Potomac and the Ohio, has gone the
limit at last and in Gabbettsville,
Ga., a pretty little miss of an even
11 summers is the train dispatcher on
an important division of the Georgia
Central. She was appointed "beca,use
everybody that knew Frankie sa,ld
she was competent, and we didn't
want to hurt the little girl's feelings
by turning her down." In less sen
timental sections of this country de
vout supplications will rise to the
Creator that human life itself may
not be turned down on the division
that gets its orders from Gabbetts
ville. Those Stroudsburg promoters of
Old Home week who went over onto
Jersey soil to get practical ideas
anent this celebration scheme acted
wisely, wo grant, for the folks to
whom they applied for information
are posted on the Job of running Old
Home weeks the way they ought to
be run; but why did they leave
Honesdale off their map of inquiry?
We had a reunion here that is ad
mitted to have been a model of Its
kind. Tho press notices of its suc
cess were not too flattering. The
former residents who came, some of
them from a distance, to partake of
our hospitality did not praise it too
highly. Honesdale's Old Homo week
exceeded the hopes of its most san
guine supporters and set the pattern
high for other small Pennsylvania
communities that expect to celebrate.
Stroudsburg, however, should and
probably will do equally well with
hers, for tho Delaware Water Gap,
one of the bost-advertlsed places In
Christendom, lies right at her doors,
and tho Water Gap's ability to help
get out the crowd is.worth something.
PROF. SMITH ARItiIEI); NOW

Harry Norris Smith, a professor in

Detectives White and Speeco in Har

he "acted suspiciously." Smith wltn

to witness tho G. A. R. festivities.
While elbowing his way through
tho crowds Smith excited tho atten
tion of Detective White and Speeco.
Detective Whito said that in three
different sections of tho central part
of tho city Smith witnessed tho par
ade. Finally ho went up to him, ask
ed his name and homo town, and nf
ter being told by Smith that ho was
a student at Yale ho locked him up.
Ho had In no way molested any one.
At tho police station Smith told
his correct name and profession and
denied absolutely that his actions
wero such as to cast suspicion upon
him. Ho was then discharged.
It Is said that he threatens to bring
suit against tho city for falso arrest.

the highways, and that owners should
have the hignways as free from ob

supervisors should be held liable for
injuries and criminally prosecuted.

Success Magazino contains a sensa
tional expose of "The Evils of tho
Night Messenger Service," written
by Lcroy Scott. Telephono nnd
telegraph companies use boys for
the delivery of messages, nnd besides
this, In every city, there aro thous
ands of boys, most of them under
sixteen, whose business It Is to carry
messages nnd do errands wherever
they are ordered. They become go
betweens in mntters of assignation;
they nre made to pilot strangers
through tho tenderloin; they aro sent
to purchase liquor nnd opium nnd
otherwise evade the law; they aro
called to take drinks into houses of
prostitution. As a result, the service
becomes a veritable school of Iniquity.
As has been expressed, "It Is a blind
alley industry, with a gambling den
nnd a house of prostitution nt tills
end, and tho bread line and peniten
tiary at tho other." The boys come
to the service during the period of
adolence, when they are especially
susceptible to evil Influence and when
they need most to be shielded from
It, nnd are thrust Into temptations
which almost Invariably ruin them.
In other words, the service Is a com
panion Infnmy with the white slave
trafllc, the one wrecking tho working
girls for purposes of profit and the
other entrapping and ruining the
boys because they can be employed
cheaper than men. As Mr. Scott puts
It: "Why nre these young boys em
ployed In a service that ruins them,
mind, soul and body? Tho answer
is simple. The reason Is the same as
impels the employment of children
In cotton mills and coal mines. Chil
dren can be secured for lower wages
than adults. There Is more profit,
more dividends, in children." The
evils of the messenger service are
things which have been exploited but
little, but they nre not the less vici
ous because not known; and this evil,
like almost every evil that shames the
century, is directly traceable to tho
profit system, the system which many
good but uninformed people seek to
maintain as though it were the acme
