CALLED NOW-A-DAYS; HAS
HIGH HOPES FOR THE
Several hundred men attended an
rally held Wednesday evening In the
Lyric Theatre, at which Democratic
County Chairman Chas. A. McCarty,
Esq., presided, and stirring addresses
were delivered by Dr. O. H. Rock
well, Monroeton, Hon. William H.
Berry, Chester, and Hon. William H.
Dlmmlck, Esq., Honesdale.
Seated on the stage with the
speakers and the county chairman
were Messrs. R. M. Stocker and N. J.
Spencer. The meeting was opened
shortly after eight o'clock by Chair
man McCarty who Introduced as the
first speaker Dr. O. H. Rockwell,
fusion candidate for Congress from
the Fourteenth Pennsylvania dis
trict. Dr. Rockwell spoke for seventeen
minutes saying among other things
that he was unalterably opposed to
boss rule. He claimed that the laws
of the country to-day are being
made by the progressive Democrats
and progressive Republicans. He ex
plained that although he used to bo
a Republican he had never held of
fice, nor was he a sorehead. His
remarks were punctuated with ap
plause. In Introducing Hon. W. H. Berry.
Chairman McCarty said that his
name Is a household word in Penn
sylvania where he received 384,000
votes when he was a candidate for
Governor on the fusion ticket last
Fall. " If the men gathered here
are Democrats," continued Mr. Mc
Carty, "then two out of three vot
ed for Mr. Berry la3t Fall. If they
are Republicans then one -Oiiit of
two voted for him."

held the closest attention of the vot

lltical situation In the country and
state to-day, spoke of the value of
manhood, the worth of principles,
and discounted the evolution theory
in what he himself admitted was a
"funny kind of a political speech."
Mr. Berry's speech was more of
a lecture than anything else. Out
side of a few brief references to the
duty of the voter to elect Dr. Rock
well, his address would have passed

He declared, in sneaklntr of noli-

for the label on the can so much as

stress on principle than on party.

Master 'Percy was scheduled to ap

other boys were arraigned, but Dep
uty Constable P. J. .Moran was un
able to find him, and so he had a
separate hearing in the afternoon.
His mother appeared before the
bar with 'him. Master 'Percy said in
reply to the Judge's questions that
he was twelve years old, lived in
Texas township, and stole one of the
revolvers from Watts' store. 'He
also said he got 3 or 4 knives after
they divided up.
" He's an Inveterate smoker of
cigarettes," declared his mother.
" There ought to be some steps
taken to stop the selling of cigarettes
In Honesdale," said Judge Searle.
" Well," spoke up Mrs. Wright,
" I don't think it makes a particle
of difference about the selling. I
think they can get the 'makings.

"Yes," answered Percy tearfully.

THE PEOPLE'S TICKET.
The voters of Wayne county want a representative ticket. A public
office is, and by all the laws of right and justice, ought to be a public
trust. The nominations made by the Republican voters at the recent pri
maries show that they are fully alive to the necessity of having strong,
able, men at the head of the county government.
It was fortunate for the taxpayers that the voters showed themselves
able to select a ticket as strong as that presented by the Republicans In
The Republican candidates represent the popular choice. We be
lieve that always you can trust the people. We also firmly believe that
the people of Wayne county will show that they can tell the difference be
tween a ticket representing the entire county and one that represents but
one section by electing the splendid Republican ticket with a magnificent
majority on November 7th.
THE JUDGESHIP, THE PARTY, AND THE PEOPLE.
Every voter In Wayne, who desires not only the success of tho Re
Republican candidates, and use all his Influence to secure their election,
tions that will hereafter keep the county In the Republican column, should
feel it a duty to go to the polls on November 7th, cast his vote for the
Ropubican candidates, and use all his Influence to secure their election.
A substantial majority for the Republican ticket will, to a great extent,
be decisive as to .the future success of tho party, and a failure this year
will have a far-reaching effect hereafter.
While a full victory for the ticket will point the way to future suc
cess, the election of the Judge is especially Important in this respect. The
nominee for this office Is the head of the ticket, and his defeat would havo
a more disastrous effect than the defeat of all the other candidates. Its
demoralizing influence would reach ten years into the future, and prob
ably longer, while it would seriously affect every election meantime. On
the other hand, his election would largely tend to maintain a vigorous In
terest and spirit among Republicans, even though Democrats held the coun
ty offlcs for the next four years. But the election of the whole ticket
would give the party a prestige and a militant force that would contribute
very effectually to Its permanent predominance in the county. The enac
tion of the head of the ticket is the first condition looking to future suc
cess, and the election of the whole ticket would supply other . essential
Yet we go beyond party considerations in advocating the election of
Judge Searle, and urge it on- grounds that apply without distinction of
party. Judging him by the record he has made arr'the- benchr4he -people
should not permit his defeat, but should Insist on retaining him in the
general Interest of the public. In the discharge of his official duties, he
has shown a readiness of preceptlon and judicial Judgment, a firm and
comprehensive grasp of all matters involved in the causes heard before
him, a broad knowledge of the law, both in its general principles and its
technical details, an accurate application of legal principles to the ques
tions presented, and an obvious impartiality, which permitted no doubt as
to his absolute fairness of purpose, which have commanded the confidence
of the bar, the people, and of his brethren on the bench wherever he has
held court. The administration of justice cannot he more effectually pro
moted than by retaining him In this position for ten years to come.
SPEECH RESTORED BY ELEC
TRICITY. The many friends of John Sam
uels of Canaan street, Delaware and
Hudson fireman, who lost his speech
as the result of an accident which
occurred at Farview on the Hones
dale branch last July, will be pleas
ed to learn that ho has recovered his
speech from treatment which he re
ceived at the Medlco-Chl hospital in
Philadelphia. In Jumping from an
engine, Mr. Samuels struck his head
against the track and when taken to
Emergency hospital it was discovered
that he had lost his speech. After
recovering from minor injuries a few
weeks ago he went to 'Philadelphia.
It was first thought that an operation
would be necessary but it was de
cided to first try an electrical treat
ment, which proved to bo very suc
cessful. The treatment lasted from
two to three hours each day and
when developments were looked for
one of the physicians asked the pa
tient if he thought he could enjoy a
hearty meal. " I certainly could,"
was the reply of the patient and the
utteranco was an agreeable surprise
to both. They were the first words
uttered by Mr. Samuels since before
the accident which was the most pe
culiar that ever came before the no
tice of the local physicians. Mr.
Samuels will have to make another
visit to Philadelphia before the
treatment is completed. Carbondale
