HONESDALE, WAYNE CO., PA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1910. NO 70 Ctteea OFF FOR PHILLIE TRAMPER TA11ER, OX WAY FROM j AUUUHN TO QUAKER CITY, GOES TJ I HOUGH WAYNE COUX- j TY AX1) HATS AND SIjHKI'B AT WlXWOOl) AND HONESDALE AVERAGES OVBIl 20 MILES A DAY. A tall, lathy, pleasant-faced young fellow with eyeglasses and a cane walked Into the Wayne hotel at C o'clock Wednesday night and said ho was walking from Auburn, N. Y., to Philadelphia and guessed Hones dale would be a good place to stop over night. Ho said he was C. F. Taber, employed In tho Quaker City but living In Bordentown, N. J., a Burlington county village 25 miles up the Delaware. Mr. Taber walked from Auburn to Chenango Forks, N. Y from Chenango to Deposit, Deposit to Scott centre, Scott to Lake Como, Lake Como to Wlnwood, where the tired but confident tramper slept Tuesday night. "How many miles a day do you walk on an average?" Mr. Taber was asked. "About 22 or 23," he replied, "but It all depends. Some days I feel like getting In 30, and I do It. Other days, passing through a beau tiful strip of country or meeting friendly farmers, I stop to look and talk. There Is no money Induce ment to get up my speed. I'm out for fun and health." "How about the expense of such a trip?" "Well, It Is fairly expensive. It costs me $2 or $3 a day to keep going, for I stop at good hotels when I can." "How are your feet?" butted In a bystander on the hotel piazza. Mr. Taber laughed. "Only one blister," he said, "and that one's coming nicely. I cut It open and treated It, and then I put on cohesive plaster. That's tho best way." "What do you think of Pennsyl vania roads?" "Some of them are good, but, the avorage road la Now York goes ahead of them. They post notices warning drivers not to keep right along in the same rut and to use wide tires. .The good roads senti ment Is powerful In the lower tier of York state counties." Mr. Taber will start today for Stroudsburg. His baggage was shipped there from Chenango. He Is due In Philadelphia Sept. 15. "But I can't tell you the precise day when I shall hang up my hat in the city of Brotherly Love," he added. "I may find some village that appeals to me and stop over there for a day or two." He thinks Wayne county Is a beautiful region. Unlike Edward Payson Weston, Mr. Taber 1b out solely for the fun of the outing. Unlike the veteran tramper, too, he lopes from the hip, does not swing his arms and shoulders violently, and does not howl and swear at everything that gets in the way of his pedestrinal progress. His walks, which have taken him through many states and to hundreds of interest ing places, are taken goodnaturedly and Mr. Taber says he has hundreds of acquaintances in New York and Ohio and Michigan and California who want him to call again. JLAKKIN AX1) WATF.lt WAGOXS. Prohibition Candidate for Governor Asks City Sprinklers as Adver tisement. SCRANTON, Sept. 1. Madison F. Larkln, Prohibition candidate for governor, wants to uso the city sprinkling wagons in tho Labor day parade to advertise his candi dacy on the cold-water ticket. Mr. Larkln made his request at the office of Director of Public Works C. V. Terwllllger. He said ho un derstood the city had six water wag ons and so wanted to uso two of them. "I will cover the sides of the wag on with posters," said Mr. Larkln. "Wo will bring up the rear of tho Labor day parade Just after tho in dustrial division." Tho request was taken under ad visement by tho director. Tho fact that Scranton's first candidate for governor would take advantage ot water wagons to urge bis candidacy, and especially at the tail end of a Labor day parade, shows that Mr. Larkln is alive to the power ot ad vertising.

To this end we earnestly recommend that cagh grange set apart a number of meetings for the discussion of these questions and report their action to the worthy master of state grange before the coming annual meeting of the state grange. The legislative committee was formed to aid in securing the passage and enforcement of laws of which we approve and the influence of your committee in securing J legislation depends primarily upon the fidelity of the mem- bership in selecting favorable legislation and in urging them both directly and through your committee to vote for these principles. A thorough discussion of these ques- t tions will do much to clarify sentiment and a definite re- port discloses the unity of the opinion. i.

ROWLAND IS DEAD POPULAR LAWYER MOURNED HY HUNDREDS OF FRIENDS IN TWO COUNTIES ONE OF THE MOST GENIAL AND WINNING OF .MEN, HIS KINDLY PRES ENCE WILL HE MISSED UNI VERSALLY. Orville Lafayette Rowland "Cap" Rowland his hundreds of friends affectionately called him died Tuesday afternoon at 4.30 at his home, 309 Tenth street, of con gestion of the brain. He had been ailing several weeks and for four or five days before the end came his condition was critical. Hope was abandoned Tuesday noon, when Dr. H. B. Ely and Dr. F. W. Powell, the attending physicians, told Mrs. Row land and the children that the hus band and father of their home could not possibly get through another night and might breathe his last be fore sundown. The wife, son and daughter of Mr. Rowland were at the bedside when the struggle ended. Never a man to complain, Mr. Rowland kept up and dressed as long as he could and did not go to bed until Saturday. Up to that time he had lain down a good deal, but always went to the table regularly for his meals. He lost a good deal of flesh lately. When In his proper condition he weighed something like 195 pounds, but he lost 10 or 15 pounds during August. One of Mr. Rowland's closest friends was Dr. Harry B. Searles. To him he said on the street one day last week: "My head bothers me all the time. I don't know what's the matter with me." Dr. Searles advised him to see his physician without delay rind Mr. Rowland did that. He was advised to rest and take things easy for a time. Soon after that he went to bed. There was no man in Wayne county who had more warm and devoted personal friends than Orville L. Rowland. He was an exceeding ly genial, frank and companionable man, and he was free from the smallest suspicion of professional crookedness. Many who knew him well say he was far and away too tenderhearted to be a lawyer. Ho hated to see people In trouble. Ho generally advised people to steer clear of the law, though he could have materially augmented his in come by steering them into it. All his brother lawyers respected hla high moral standards and tho thoroughness of his legal learning. One of them, who Is not quoted by name, said today: "Rowland, like all of us, was sometimes approached by parties with a crooked scheme to put through. They would ask him, say, how $2,000 could be made by this trick or that. He invariably gave them a patient hearing, for Row laud was always patient, and then ho'd say: " 'Yes, that thing can be done, but don't count on me to help you do It.' " Mr. Rowland's mental equipment Tor the law was very noticeable, even to laymen. He had a very retentlvo memory and an excellent command of clear, Idiomatic English, though he never tried to be a fancy speaker. Ho was eminently peaceablo in tem perament and disliked to engage in disputes outside tho necessary argu ments of tho courtroom or to hear wrangling on the part of others. It was frequently said of him that he could calm discordant factions with fewer words than any other man In Wayne county. In outdoor sports Mr. Rowland was particularly Interested. He lov ed to shoot and fish, and every fall he made it a point to drop law busi ness for a fortnight In order to go over into tho woods of Pike county and rough it. Ho was a good shot and handy with rod and line. Ho was an Ideal hunting nnd Ashing companion and men that had been In the Pike woods once with "Cap" Rowland wore always eager to go again. Mr. Rowland had Just turned his half century. Ho was born at Rowlands, tho Plko county vlllago that long ago was named for tho family, Nov. 21, 1859. His father was George H. and his mother Katherino Rowland. He wont to school at Rowlands and was a dill gent studont. At 15 ho entered Wyoming seminary and at 19 grad uated. Ho had decided to bo a law yer and from Wyoming ho went to Albany, N. Y. Law school and stud led threo years. Mr. Rowland's wife was Harriot Julia Genung, daughter of Ezra and Nancy Genung ot Honesdale. Tho wedding took place hero on Sopt 12, 1888, Rev. Georgo C. Hall, at that time settled over Grace church, ty ing the knot. Mr, and Mrs. Row land had two children. Harold Genung, their son, has lived here all (Continued on Pago Eight).
