UNCOVERING 31R. BERRY.
Gubernatorial Candidate BERRY,
of tho mongrel FLINN-VAN VALK
ticket, is making speeches
throughout tho state and continuing
to set up the false pretense that has
characterized the Keystone party
since its inception.
He asserts again and again tho
same old things that have been fully
displayed In the vain hopo that he
can fool tho voters into giving him
and his colleagues their suffrages.
Ho opened his campaign in To
wanda, at a meeting which ROBERT
EDMISTON, campaign manager for
the BRYAN-Democratic nominee for
Congress, GEORGE W. KIPP, call
ed to order.
Just previous to the meeting 25
selected delegates had held a "con
vention" and Indorsed the BRYAN
Democrat KIPP for Congress.
In the course of his speech BERRY
said that public sentiment through
out the state had been for his nom
ination at the Allentown convention,
although the undisputed fact is that
the vast majority of the delegates
had gone there to nominate CYRUS
LA RUE MUNSON, for whom there
was genuine public sentiment, and
despite the fact that It. Is not de
nied that there were more GRIM
delegates In that convention than
there were BERRY delegates.
BERRY also repeated his absurd
misstatement that PENROSE con
trolled the nomination of GRIM and
the withdrawal of MUNSON, when
It Is now fully known that MUNSON
declined to run because of the
very fact that he expected BERRY',
defeated for tho nomination, to run
Independently and thus draw upon
the Democratic voters needed for his
election, and because his physician
told him his health would not per
mit him to undergo the stress and
strain of a campaign.
What excuse is there for BERRY"S
repeating these silly lies which were
brought Into being at the time the
FLINN-VAN VALKENBURG gang
of political pirates and tho BRY'AM
Democracy bolters were trying to
Btlr up excitement In order to ex
cuse tho bringing Into existence of
tho mongrel Keystone party?
The voters of Pennsylvania are
not so stupid as to be fooled by such
downright lies, especially when they
are so silly.
It Is well to note, too, that the
Democratic Philadelphia Record
now asserts that BERRY was de
feated for tho nomination by tho
Allentown convention, oven after
GUFFEY was ready to turn in for
him when MUNSON had withdrawn
"on account of his (BERRY'S) fi
nancial transactions with Col. GUF
FEY' and tho Harrlsburg Trust com
pany, while filling the ofllco of state
And this Is the kind of man who
goes before the peoplo of Pennsyl
vania on a "holier-than-thou" plat
form, trying to get tho peoplo to
wreck tho Republican party and
send BRY'AN Democrats to Congress
and FLINN-VAN VALKENBURG
men to tho legislature!
A now airship record Is broken
about every day. So Is an airship!
Just because tho early bird catches

there are early risers whoso grass Is

surpassingly practical Judgo Wilson
was when he said the man who Is
independently rich is not halt so closo
to a home on Easy street as the man

There Is some physical frankness

day at tho lake and that game will
be a pleasant memory to Honcsdale,
not only because the Maple City

Mooslcs conducted themselves like
A Pottsvllle man was fatally kick

KEYSTONE PRESS, t
Reports from the department of
agriculture and elsewhere indicate
that tho only real failure of the year
Is the Berry crop. Help! Help!
No more dreadful fate can over
take a town than that which appears
to have practically wiped out several
small cities in Idaho and western
Montana. Tho number of dead re
ported is comparatively small, but
hundreds of those who escaped from
the burning towns with their lives,
saved nothing else. Their distressful
situation will awaken wide-spread
sympathy. Harrlsburg Patriot.
The Wayne Independent In com
mentlng on some recent cases where
boys have been taken before a justice
and fined large sums for catching a
kind of fish they did not know was
protected by law, says It was the
general opinion tho magistrate should
have let them off for the first offense
with a reprimand. There are times,
adds the Independent, when the of
fence causes less public aversion than
tho punishment. Wo think tho
Honcsdale contemporary right In its
deductions. The trend of the times
is to make the laws a little more
llexlble, as Is shown by the new state
law now which makes sentences of an
indeterminate nature. Many a boy
has, perhaps, gone wrong for want
of discipline, and it is probably just
as true that many another lad has
been made reckless by over-disci
pllne. Nothing wrecks a good dis
position quicker than punishment
which the victim believes is unde
served. Forest City News.
GOODNIGHT TO MR. KIPP!
Old Dyed-in-tlic-Wool Democratic
Argus Can't Stomach Him.
Wayno county Republicans have
noticed with much satisfaction that
tho Towanda Argus has concluded
not to support Georgo W. Kipp,
Democratic-Keystone candidate for
Congress in the Fourteenth district.
Of this defection the Towanda Reporter-Journal
"Tho ancient Argus, after a long
period of hesitation and doubt, has
made up Us mind. This old and
honored mouthpiece of true Demo
cracy in this district will not follow
after strange gods In this political
scrap, but will support Grim, tho
Democratic candidate for governor,
and will opposo Klpp, tho Congres
sional candldato on tho Keystone
and Democratic tickets. Whether
it will actually champion tho cause
of Mr. Pratt, tho Republican coil'
gresslonal candidate, wo aro not in

Indirect effect of Its course will bo

In deciding not to lino up with tho
Berry crowd tho editor of our Dem
ocratlc contemporary has dono wlse
ly. It would havo been bad policy
for this old exponent of Jeffcrsonlan
principles to cast its lot with tho
small band of renegade Democrats
(tho leader of whom Is a sorehead
and running on tho Keystono ticket
because ho couldn't capture tho Dem
ocratlc nomination) who are trying
to secure control of tho state gov
"Candldato Klpp will miss tho
Argus' support. Wo understand tho
Argus will oppose him on tho ground
that ho Is no longer a Democrat, and
that ho is trying to break down tho
Democratic party In tho state. What
Mr. Klpp now considers himself to
bo as regards party ainiiatlons we do
not konw. It doesn't matter much.
Judged by the representations of his
clnckers when appealing to tho peo
ple for votes, he has for soveral
years been almost everything and
anything. But notwithstanding tho
Argus has ceased to bellovo It, Mr.
Klpp Is a Democrat first, last and
all tho time and will work and vote
with the Democrats If fortunate
enough to sccuro another seat In Con
gress. And that Is the thing for Re
publicans who aro asked to voto for
him to remember."

Atlantic City on my vacation trip,
I did pay one short visit to that fam

IRVING CLIFF HOTEL COMING?
She fiuro Is Snys Lawyer Gnrrntt,
CtiMtudlnit of tho Plans.
Tho front elevation of tho pro
posed now Irving Cliff hotel, plans
by Davey & Crowther of Scranton,
has this week attracted considerable
attention In tho window of O. T.
Chnmbers's drugstore. Not much
information is given out by W. H.
Dimmlck and Chester A. Garratt,
the two men most Interested In en
gineering tho project, but It Is
known tho hotel, if built, will bo
200 feet long and three stories high,
all of native stone, and will con
tain 142 rooms.
Mr. Garratt told tho newspaper
men that they could say tho Irving
Cliff hotel Is coming. Ho added
that the cornerstone would not bo
laid Labor day, though at flrst It
was hoped the laying might take
placo then. Tho detnlled plans fill

wards of the new Institution, ca

patients, will bo ready,
i Whether the state will avail Itself
of tho opportunity of occupying a
portion of tho hospital at that time
is a question. If It Is decided to
transfer patients there from other
hospitals scattered throughout the
state, It will be necessary to provide
a temporary heating plant and light
Tho sections of the hospital near

D and G, each with accommodation
for 62 men. Tho loggia connecting
the two is also about finished. The
commission is hopeful of securing
sufficient lunds from tho next legis

th'o final completion of the hospital.
Additional wards for male patients
are to be erected, also tho wards for
women, the power house, heating
plant and several minor structures.
Work on tho administration build
ing will be deferred until last.
Members of the commission who
Inspected the work Friday and Sat

Fltzsiminons is on the ground su
pervising tho construction of the
hospital. Tho contractor is the

Stick To tho Farm In Good Old
Tho Columbus, (O.) Journal gives
this additional reason for sticking to
tho farm: "Hero comes a spring
chicken into tho household. It is a
dellcato llttlo carcass, and makes a
flno meal for two; no more, no less.
Spread out ready to fry, It Is not as
largo as your two hands; no larger
than ono, If you're quite a man. It
costs 65 cents. Wo havo seen three

let that doesn't spraddle out bigger
than a bullfrog when dressed, sell

we may expect when everybody
rushes to tho city to eat chicken and
fow stay back on tho farm to raise
them. If this tiling keeps up, only
tho malefactors of great wealth will
think of eating spring chicken."
