" Storo For Rent."
This simple announcement, dis
played In the window of the Main
street shop, occupied by Morris
Freeman, Tuesday morning, was the
first intimation hundreds of Hones
dale people had of the retirement
from active business life of one of
the oldest and best known merchant
tailors in Northeastern Pennsylva
nia. For more than fifty years, Mr.
Freeman has designed custom-made
clothing for the residents of the
city and county.
'When seen by a Citizen man at
his home, 814 Court street, he
talked freely of his experiences. He
" In War times, I couldn't make a
suit for less than $40 or $50. Every
thing was high then. I had to pay
$19 a barrel for flour.
" There Is less custom-made
clothing now than then. People buy
more ready-made clothes. The
farmers, too, pay more for ready
made clothes than they did years
" I was in business In the Eas
mann building for twenty-eight
years. I used to keep twelve or
fourteen girls working all the tlnre.
" I came to Honesdale when I
was about 1C. I am 72 years old
now. I have been living here 56
" I learned the trade in the oM
country. You work w'ith tho boss
there. He gives you 'felling' to do,
and you have to pick up the trade
" Here in this country, one. tailor
makes the coat, another the trous
ers, and so on. It goes from one
hand to another.
" Yes, they make very good
ready-made suits now. Years ago It
wasn't that way. You can't get
girls or men to learn the trade
now. I could take half a dozen at
that time. Now I can't get one.
" There's not tho style to a custom-made
suit as to a ready-made
suit. If you want to pay the price,
and pay $50 to $75, of course, you'll
get a good custom-made suit.
No, you can't get a young man
to learn tho trade, nowadays. You
couldn't get them to sit down on tho
bench and learn It."
One 'by one the men who came to
Honesdale in the fifties, when the
town was nothing but a village, and
was hemmed In on all sides by vir
gin timber, are retiring from active
life, to spend the remainder of their
days in peace and quietude.

forest, who were forced to give way

At a meeting of the Republican
conferees of the Fourteenth con
gressional district held in the par
lors of the Oakland House at Sus
quehanna, 'Wednesday afternoon,
Captain W. D. B. Ainey, of Mont
rose, was unanimously chosen as
the nominee for the vacancy caus
ed by the sudden death of Congress
man George W. KIpp, of Towanda.
When the meeting was called to
order Henry M. Harding, of Tunk
hannock, was named as chairman.
There were present four conferees
from Bradford county, three from
Susquehanna county, two from
Wayne county and ono from Wyo
ming county. W. J. Marsey, of For
est City called the meeting to order
and M. E. Simons, of Wayne coun
ty and E. M. Lyons, of Bradford,
were chosen secretaries, and the
meeting proceeded with tho nomina
tion of candidates.
After the presentation of the cre
dentials Mr. Maxey offered a resolu
tion embodying the rules authoriz
ing the meeting and these were
adopted and this was folowed by an
attempt 'by Mr. Decker, a Wayne
county conferee to have the gather

people from Wayne county felt that
It was a snap convention. Their
candidate he said was unable to
be present as the time was so short
that he could not arrange his busi
ness so he could get there. While
he did not think it would change the
result he felt that in the Interest of
the eandidate named it would be far
better to take the action he sug
gested. D. L. Sweet;-of Bradford, opposed
tho motion saying the people of his
county wanted Ainey and it would
be doing them an injustice to fail
to jnake a nomination to-day.
Mr. Harding, of Wyoming, spoke
In the same manner and said he did
not suppose it would make any dif
ference any way as things were
shaped up for 'Mr. Ainey and a de

The name of Captain Ainey was
presented by E. B. Joachin, of tho
Bradford county delegation, while
that of Attorney Homer Greene, of
Honesdale, was 'presented by, the
Wayne county conferees. The name
of W. N. Reynolds, of Tunkhannock,
was presented ny tho Wyoming
county conferee. A vote was taken
which resulted In Ainey receiving
seven votes, Greene, two, and Rey
nolds, one. Captain Ainey had re
ceived the united support of the
Bradford and 'Susquehanna delaga-
tlons while Wayne and Wyoming
had voted for their favorite sons.
Upon the announcement of the
vote V. A. Decker of Wayne county
moved that the vote 'bo made unani

by "Henry M. Harding, of Wyoming

composed of owners of cottages bor-
uering on tnat neautuui lake, iorm-
erly known as Big Pond, Pike coun
ty, is doing good work along the
line of improvements and protection
for the cottagers.
The association is planning to
connect Fairview Lake with the Mill
Pond, a short distance from the
former lake. Tho Mill Pond, like
Fairview Lake, is fed principally by
springs. By rebuilding the dam at
the outlet of the Mill Pond and con
necting the two lakes by enlarging
tho channel between tho two bodies
of water a lake about three miles
long can -be made. This can be done
by erecting a six foot dam at the
outlet of the Mill Pond. Other im
provements are contemplated, which
if they materialize, will make Fair-
view Lake the Ideal resort in this
section of the state. The area of this
lake is 500 acres. The lake will be
restocked. The association recent

EDWARD MURTHA IS RENEWING
OLD FRIENDSHIPS IN HONES
DALE. Edward Murtha, of N6V York city,
who had the honor of driving the last
boat out of Honesdale on the Dela
ware and Hudson Canal, almost thir
teen years ago, Is spending several
days In town, renewing old friend
ships. According to his statement, the
last boat of pea coal left Honesdale,
Saturday, November 6, 1898. She
was numbered 1107 and bore the
euphonious name of "Sunshine."
Frank Hinzenbecker, of 49 Ger
man street, Kingston, Ulster coun
ty, New York, captained the barge
on her swan trip, and Edward Mur
tha was the driver.
Peter B. Balles, of Erie street, was
one of the gang of men that helped
to load the boat "Sunshine" with
pea coal at the Union Dock, on that
memorable day in November, 1898.
The Delaware and Hudson Canal
was built in 1828, at a cost of $6,
339,210. It was in operation for al
most 71 years, and was finally sold
in June, 1899, to the Erie Railroad
Pessimists In the days of '98 pre
dicted that the abandonment of the
waterway would mean the wiping of
Honesdale from the commercial map.
That their predictions were not
well-founded is shown by the fact
that the Maple City still lives and
flourishes; that her manufacturers
were never more busily engaged In
filling orders; that at the present
time and that, notwithstanding the
labor troubles of last year, her stores
are doing larger ameunt of business
than ever before, and labor continues
