Right- along these: lines Is an on
portunlty for the merchants of
Honesdale to' create or devise some
means whereby large numbers of
people, wllj be attracted to the town
once or twice a month for the pur
pose of stimulating business.
The summer boarding season is
here and there are large numbers of
,tne city' guests who come to the
county annually to have a good
time and be entertained. The num
bers are increasing yearly. Every
day the boarders go somewhere' for
a drive, .traveling sometimes from
fifteen to twenty miles. They go
to the largest country town or city
from where they might be staying
and money is no object with them.
It now lies with the Business
Men's association and Greater
Honesdale Board of Trade to co
operate in this matter and secure
the business' that might otherwise
go elsewhere. Floral parades, car
nivals, or other doings of a special
nature can be planned to attract
the people to Honesdale.
The summer-boarder Is not the
only class that the town wants, bjrt
It Is very desirous of the rural dis

who now go to other places should

number of people to Honesdale.

JONES ROAD BILL CUT $500,000;
SCULPTOR BARNARD GETS
Next week will see the finish of
the legacy left to Gov. Tener by the
late Legislature, as the thirty -days
after adjournment will have elapsed.
All bills will either have been vetoed
or signed, or they will become laws
by reason of the expiration of thirty
days without action on the part of
the Governor. Quite a number are
still in his hands, although this
week has s'een the closing up of a
great many. '
Among the bills signed was one
providing for an addition or exten
sion of the Capitol Park grounds,
carrying an appropriation of $2,d00,
OOpr although only $200,000 Is made
available this year. Not a little ,
pressure was brought to bear upon
the Governor by Harrlsburg people
to sign the bill, and the Executive
evidently gave the matter careful
consideration. This was evidenced
by the statement he gave out when he
signed the .bill to the effect that if 'it
should develop that the land in ques
tion could not be secured for the
amount of the appropriation, he
would recommend that the next leg
islature repeal the bill. How likely
they are to do this may be guessed
by the fact that two successive Leg
islatures passed such a bill as Gov
ernor Tener just signed, almost un
animously, and this undoubtedly had
some Infliinnna with tho nnv.nn.

In vetoing a number of salary rais
ing bills, while approving others less
worthy,, the Governor brought down
upon himself the condemnation of
those" he did not favor, and many
comparisons .were made. What mov
ed him to such action is a matter of
conjecture, but he doubtless had
what he regarded as good and suffi
cient reason. The vetoes were not
on account of Insufficient revenue.
Another veto, which will probably
cause "more condemnation, was the .
Jones road bill, which was given
$500,000 by the Governor, instead of
the $1,000,000 appropriated by the
Legislature. There are many who
believe that the dominant party will
lose by this action, among the farmer
voters, for this bill appealed to them
especially. If money were necessary
thaf amount could have been cut
from some other bills, for there were
quite a few where the State was more
generous than fair.

of the untorrlfied was on hand. Con
gressmen Pamer, Stroudsburg, and
Wilson, Tioga county, were also
present. Thero Is no doubt but our
friends are In better fighting' shape
