THE FAXJIiT OF THE BRIDGE.
Qn Tuesday, a small boy on his way to school ran across the State
Bridge gjam-bang into an automobile which turned the corner from Main
street Into Twelfth. Fortunately, the little chap was not seriously hurt,
and the conduct Of the automobillst, who picked the boy up and drove
"him" in the machine to a dpptors was all that it shpuld be,
The accident waa not due to any carelessness on the part of the
.motorist because his Jipyn was tooting away before be turned the corner.
"Neither was. the accident flue to any fault of the small boy whose head
barely reaches half way up'tbs irOR partition which separates the roadway
from the passenger walk. -. ' 1
ii. The accident Wfts "entirely 'due to the fact that the average passer-by
"S much less a small boy is not tall enough to look over the partition,
and as it is of one solid sheet of iron, of course no one can look through It.
As the accident Tuesday clearly demonstrates, serious accidents are
Jiable to .occur at either end of the bridge unless something is done to pre
"vent'tliem, T " 1 . 1 --:,-- -t ywMfilio ..
Tho simplest way, it seems to Us, for reducing this danger to a lnlnl
'Inum, Is to cut a number of parallel slits in the Iron sheet on each sldo of
the roadway, so that pedestrians may stop before crossing Twelfth street
or Park Place if they see a vehicle is going to Urn the corner. As it is
now, pedestrians cannot see through and often cannot hear tho automo
bile horn because of the high partitions now standing.
THE SHAMEFUL INACTION OF COATESVILLE.
Many days have elapsed since Zach Walker, the negro who killed a
white man and then tried to kill 'himself, was dragged from the hospital
by the Coatesville mob, and thrust time and again into the fire until he
was burned to a crisp, and yet nothing or, at least, very little, has
been done towards removing the stain of that crime from the fair name
of the State of Pennsylvania.
There has been talk; lots of talk but no results.
The Governor, the Attorney General and the District Attorney of the
county have all talked of their determination to use all their power to
bring the murderers to justice.
Judge Butler, on the bench at 'West Chester, in charging the grand
jury, said that every person present in the mob, whether actually partici
pating in the burning or not, was guilty of murder, and some half dozen
persons have been arrested and indicted. But they are mostly boys or
persons of no Influence in the community, while it was said at the time
and has been continually repeated since, that the mob was largely com
posed of those well known, not a few of them leading citizens.
It will not do to make scapegoats of a few obscure individuals, while
the men whose responsibility is the greatest are permitted to escape on the
jlea that they cannot be identified so as to secure conviction, and we
"Hrust that "no such attempt is to bo made.
It is reported that Attorney General Bell and District Attorney
Gawthrop have agreed upon a plan of action to secure the indictment of
those higher up than any yet in custody, by the Grand Jury which has
not yet made its final report. There should be no doubt of their success if
they are really in earnest, and if Chester county is worthy of the good
name that it has had in the past. ' The State and county authorities cannot
escape their responsibility in this matter. The people look to them to
vindicate tho name of Pennsylvania, as a Commonwealth in which sum-'
mary vengeance cannot be visited upon any one, no matter how humble
or how criminal he may be a Commonwealth in which justice is admin
istered according to law.
Can't Something bo Done?
Editor The Citizen:
I saw in the Toledo Blade an ac
count where the western ranchmen
are to have a meeting to see what
can be done about the high price of
meat. .They claim that the beef
cattle were never cheaper than they
have 'been the past year, and the
middlemen are making 300 per cent,
profit. Is that right? Now let us
look to home for example. The
butchers are the same with the
same per cent, profit. If a farmer
goes to them and wants to sell them
a dressed hog, they will tell them
they have lots on hand, and that
they are cheap, as all they are giv
ing is from G to 8 cents per pound,
and are willing to buy in a few days.
The price of meat which they aro
selling is lower than it has been.
But let a customer ask for a few
pounds of meat and they will tell
you how scarce it is, and will charge
you from 1C to 40 cents per pound.
Now I wish something could be done
in Wayne county. I would suggest
that the Grangers start a regular
Grange store where they could get
what their meat and other produce
Is worth, so as to make the meat
dealers come down on tho price of
their meat, as it is as dear now as it
was during war times.

wearing their blankets they present
a very ludicrous and uncomfortable

they usually die. Such as survive

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED
by local applications, as they can-
not reach the diseased portion of the
ear. There Is only one way to cure
deafness, and that is by constitu
tlonal remedies. Deafness Is caus
ed by an Inflamed condition of the
mucous lining ot the Eustachian
Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Im
perfect hearing, and when it Is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result.
and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out
ol ten are caused by Catarrh, which
is nothing but an Inflamed condition
of tho mucous surfaces.

TO THE REPUBLICANS OF WAYNE COUNTY:
Pursuant to the requests of my many friends in the county and
the general understanding three years ago that I should again- offer
myself as a candidate for the nomination for Prothonotary at the com

state that after a short start by

about thirty years ia the school
of hard knocks as a farmer and
lumberman Jn Wayne county.
Have met many people in the var

and this long experience has en
abled me to meet many whom I
esteem as friends and gain at
least enough knowledge to appre
ciate the needs and requirements
of my fellow man.
My aim has steadily been to
deal honestly, frankly and fairly
with all and to dearly cherish all
of our country's institutions, and
to encourage and assist every
true effort to maintain and ad
vance them. I invite the fullest

knew me best. Although always a resident and large taxpayer in
Wayne county, I never asked for office except on the aforementioned
occasion when I was defeated by M. J. Hanlan who, though opposed to
me, never, to my knowledge, said or did anything detrimental to me.
I therefore earnestly request your support and promise if nominated
and elected to faithfully perform the duties of the office to the very
best of my ability and in all things observe the spirit of the - Golden
