STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER HUNTER MAKES SUGGESTION IN
SPECTS AND ACCEPTS DYBERRY ROAD Mr. HUNTER ON "GOOD
ROADS" WHAT Mr. HALE THINKS OF THE "MAPLE CITY" GOOD
BYE DEAR OLD "MUD" STREET!
The visit to Honesd&lo last Wed
nesday of State Highway Commis
sioner Hunter has given fresh im
petus to the project of beautifying
Main street, that eye-sore of the
otherwise spotless aristocratic Maple
City. Already in many quarters the
project to convert Main street Into a
magnificent 18-foot-wide boulevard,
with driveways on either side, Is
hailed with outbursts of enthusias
tic approval. The old question
"What shall we do with Main
street?" may be solved satisfactorily
next summer, If the financial aid re
quired Is forthcoming from the
State and municipality.
State Highway Commissioner
Joseph W. Hunter, Harrisburg, ac
companied by Division Engineer Ar
thur W. Long, Scranton, came to
Honesdale, Tuesday morning, to in
spect the two-mile stretch of state
road, running from the Texas town
ship line to what is known as Big
Eddy, the Construction of which has
Just been successfully completed by
the contracting firm of Seaman, Ir
win and Brenncman at an approxi
mate cost of $40,000.
Commissioner Hunter was accom
panied on his tour of final inspection
by John H. Hale, Philadelphia, State
highway .inspector who. has been

by the County Commissioners, J. K.
Hornbeck, Equinunk, J. E. Mnnde

Newfoundland; by the Supervisors,
Asa Kimble and Mr. Brown. Super
visor John Relfler, on account of
sickness, was unable to accompany
Mr. Hunter went over the road
thoroughly from end to end, Inspect
ed the macadam and telford, and
found it in first-class condition. He
suggested additional fence, and that
the gutters be shaped up properly
for the winter drainage. The road
was formally accepted by Mr. Hunt
er for the state; by the Commission
ers, for the county; and by the Su
pervisors for tho township, with tho
condition that the Department shall
retain ten per cent, of the original

will keep tho road In repair for six
months, or until June 1, 1911. There
is also a little work on the road
which will have to bo done next
A delegation of citizens from Dy
berry township took Mr. Hunter over
the balance of the road that leads
to Dyberry, to show him the deplor
able condition it Is in. Mr. Hunter
promised to build the same as soon
as he had sufficient funds. Ho also
promised a delegation of Honesdale
citizens consisting of Mayor John
Kuhbach, Judge A. T. Searle, Chas.
A. McCarty, Esq., E. C. Mumford,
Esq., Homer Greene, Esq., that he
would connect the Dyberry road
through Texas township to tho bor
ough line, and from the borough
line to the end of Main street. Tho
construction however will all depend
on the amount of the appropriation
Wayne county receives for tho next
'two years; and also on condition that
the township and borough authori
ties each agree to' pay one-eighth of
Mr. Halo on "Honesdale."
John M.- Hale,- State Highway In
spector. Philadelphia, when seen by
a CITIZEN representative, could not
speak too highly of Honesdale and
Its environs. He said:
"My stay in Honesdale has been
a most pleasant one. I made some
dear friends, and I find the people
here very congenial Probably when
1 go away 1 shall never return, but
always will have a warm spot In my
heart for the Honesdale people. I
find the climate here very beneficial,
and Improved In health." Mr. Hale
leaves next week for Harrisburg,
whore ho will spend the winter.
Tlio Irving Boulevard.
The question of the condition of
the streets of Honesdale was taken
up with Mr. Hunter by a number of
our leading citizens. He seemed to
think that a brick pavement with a
The Celebrated Howe
Change of Venue
Term off Court.
JUIXiK A. T. SEARLE WHO WILL TRY CASE HAS EARNED ES
TEEM OF SCRANTON LAWYERS RY FAIR DECISIONS NEV
ER BEEN REVERSED YET. '
Scranton, Pa., December 1. Tho
caso. against Carl Howe was
changed for trial to Honesdalo by
Judge Newcomb Wednesday morn
ing. Tho change of venue was granted
on the ground alleged In the petition
presented by Attorney Richard Hol
gate that great local prejudice exists
against Howe, duo to tho notoriety
of tho case.
It will be tried, very likely, in
January, but there Is nothing cer
tain as to that. Tho order of this
court certifies tho caso to tho oyer
and terminer court of Wayno, and
the district nttornoy at Wayno will
put it on tho list In tho snmo way
as If the Indictment had been found
In his county.
All tho costs will bo at the expenso
of this county, and District Attorney
O'Brien will personally conduct the
prosecution. Clarenco Balentlne has
beon with him In tho thtfffe trials
hero as private counsel for the pros
ecution Hon. A. T. Searle, Judge of Wayno
county, will prcsldo. Tho venue to
his court is eminently satisfactory to
the commonwealth and tho defense.
As assistant district attorney In tho
United States Court beforo ho was
appointed to succeed tho lato Judge
Purdy, ho had extensive experience
in criminal' cases, not to mention his
goncral practice- as a lawyer before
He bus specially presided in this
court several times, assisting tho lo
cal judges in a rusli and earned tho
esteem of all tho lawyers who had
cases beforo him,
Tho last tlmo tho Howe case was
heard hero It took four days to try
It, and very likely it will last as long
again, If not longer. Tho common
wealth's sldo is not what takes time
boulevard In tho centre, would be
the best solution of the problem.
The Town Council has already sent
In a petition for a state road, which
has been held up by lack of funds.
Seventy-five per cent, of the cost of
building such a road would have to
be borne by the State; twelve-and-one-half
per cent, each by the coun
ty and borough.
Mr. Hunter on "Good Roads."
Mr. Hunter granted the CITIZEN
man an Interview en route from Car
bondale to the Maple City. He was
just finishing his breakfast, and Im
parted large chunks of information
to tho reporter between bites of an
drange, which he munched with evi
dent pleasure. Mr. Hunter is evi
dently a very methodical eater, for
he was very careful to discard the
pulp and fibre of the orange, and
only masticated the Juice.
1 "There aro 783 miles of State
Road in Pennsylvania," said Mr.
Hunter. "In all' there are upwards
of 2800 miles of improved roads, out
of a total milege of 98,000. The
average cost of building a mile of
"state road" is f 10,700. Pennsyl
vania is the only state In the United
States -which Includes the cost of
bridges In the- cost of construction
per mile. Only the very worst por
tions of tho state have beon supplied
with modern highways, which ac
counts for the high cost of construc
tion." ' . ' '
"In our State," continued Mr.
Hunter, "the supervisors have every
thing to say. In Massachusetts the
Initiatives comes from tho State
Highway Commissioner. Oil or wa
ter Is a good "binder." Every town
ship ought to own a road sprinkler."
Mr. Hunter did not seem to think
very much of having special com
mittees accompanying him on his
tours of Inspection. When a rain
storm prevented a large company of
special representatives in automo
biles from accompanying him on one
of his tours in the western part of
the state, he said, "Thank tho

Tho opinion written by Judgo
Newcomb granting tho venue Is as
"Tho defendant stands chnrged
with a grave felony. Ho moves for
chango of venue on two grounds
which ho says would provent a fair
trial In this county, to wit. (1) Great
local prejudice against him duo to
tho notoriety of tho case; (2), that
