MEETING OF T OWN COUNCIL Nothing the Matter With Lake Lodore ROUTINE BUSINESS DISPOSED OF AND 92702.15 WORTH OF HILLS PAID. " The Council don't think there Is anything the matter with Lake Lo dore, and If the Honesdale Improve ment Society thinks there Is they can report the matter to the State authorities. Such was the action taken at the October meeting of the Town Coun cil, last Thursday evening, when the matter of the condition of Lake Lo dore was brought up for discussion, following the statement of President Caufleld that the president of the Improvement Society was consider ably worried about the condition of the Lake Lodore dam, in view of the recent tragedy at Austin. One of the councilmen remarked that he had talked to a lawyer about the matter, and tho attorney sug gested that the Secretary of the Town Council ought to write to the Water Commission at Harrisburg about it, as there were two pretty big bodies of water up there on tho -mountain, and if hoth should give way some of those up town would catch It. The majority of the borough lath ers seemed, however, to think there could be no possible danger from the threatened breaking of the dam, and spoke of a similar hue and cry raised many years ago about the Lake Lodore dam, when tho council went so far as to. send a man up there to examine the breakwater construction. Nothing satisfactory ever came from his report, and it cost the borough $25 for his ser vices. The general impression seemed to be that in the remote event of the breaking of the dam, the water would all be dissipated before it got to Honesdale. One councilman even went so far as to say, that, in his opinion, the State Examiners were not more practical than the men here, as .many of them held their jobs as political appointees. Bills and claims amounting to $2,762.45 were ordered paid, large items of which were the following: Seaman, Irwin and Brenneman, for stone used on County Seat streets, $2002.13; Light company bill, $264. 49. The meeting was called to order by President Caufleld at 8:09 p. m. when all the members answered to their names at roll call. Others present at the session were: Street Commissioner Lawrence Weidner, Attorney P. H. Iloff, Chief Engineer John M. Lyons, Christie Rabbltt and representatives of the Scranton Truth and the Citizen. Treasurer Penwarden reported as follows: DR.

Lawyer Iloff, attorney for Mrs. Maggie Stengel, Spring street, ap peared before the council asking on behalf of his client, that the sewer on West street be extended 75 feet to her corner property. The rea sons ue assigned in urging the councilmen to grant her request were as follows: " Mrs. Stengel," he said, " was one of the five or six original con structors of the sewer on West street. Subsequently tho borough took over this sewer. Those Ave or six persons each paid $25 to build tho sower. Mrs. Stengel asks that the sewer ho extended to the corner property. She thought sho should be entitled to an extension up to the corner house. 'She Is willing to pay $25 for tho extension." Mr. Iloff further declared that he was going to bring suit against the borough if the council didn't lay the sewer. "We're like the game cock," ho said. "Wo are willing to fight if we aren't treated right. "Airs. Stencol." he o.nntinued. " has a good cause for action in tho changing of the grade There was a cut oi tnree or lour feet in front of her place. If she wished she could bring a nice suit." Tho president assured Mr. Iloff that the council would give hlra a decided answer within a week, and the breezy incident was closed. The committee on testing tne nro plugs, consisting of Councilman Pen warden and Chief Engineer John M. Lyons, reported that they had test ed all the plugs in the borough, Wednesday afternoon, and found them all O. K., save the one at Main and Fifth street, which needs some repairs.

AND THE, COUNTY Bright Outlook for Devel opment of Lackawaxen Valley CONDITIONS ARE RIPE FOR A RIGGER, 1IETTER AND BUS IER TOWN. The Honesdale Citizen heartily endorses a bigger, better and busier Honesdale and Wayne county; the development of the Lackawaxen Valley or anything that means more business for dear old Wayne. Honesdale Is the home of a half hundred varied Industries and its Wheels in the different mills and shops hum from morning till night. Industrially Honesdale is far ahead of other towns and cities. Parties at different times In their lives who, by the turn of the tide of circum stances 'have loft Honesdale, invari able return to this place to make their fortune and live the balance of their lives In their home town. The opportunities afforded In Honesdale and Wayne county are many and diversified. There are several waterpowers developed and others possible of development. Within a few miles of Honesdale a dam is being constructed for the largest power In this section of the country and in the State of Pennsyl vania, that of harnessing the waters of "the Wallen-Paupack river. This will Insure cheap power, which alone will be an Incentive to locate in Honesdale. Another wise precaution to consider regarding the possibility of the breaking of the dam of this mammouth lake Is that Honesdale is several feet higher than the site of the overflow of the water and con sequently would do away with, any possible flood or danger. Locate in Honesdale and be on the safe side. It Is In Honesdale that free sites are offered by the Greater Honesdale Board of Trade to any new industry locating within its boundaries or in Texas township. Sites can be secur ed on elthgr the Erie or Delaware arid',Hnds6n railroad entering Hones dale. There are no strings attached to the sites offered by the Board of Trade, but they are offered abso lutely free to the prospecive manu facturer. Since the census of 1900 several industries have been established and located in Honesdale. ( Continued on Page Four.) JOHN MALE, Elected Commissioner by Hnndsoma Mnjority. W, D. 1'.

October established a record for the number of checks issued in a month by the State Treasury, th books of the department indicating that in twenty-three business days no less than 3,853 checks were drawn after warrants had been presented from the Auditor General's Depart ment. The best previous record was about 3,000. The bulk of the checks were drawn In the latter half of tho month when warrants in payments of salaries of judges and various appropriations were presented in addition to heavy disbursements on account of school appropriations. Over $3,000,000 of the school appropriation has bon is sued and over a million more will go out shortly. Tho aggregate of th disbursements by the Treasury for all purposes last month was $3,585,650. 12, th.e receipts being $3,310,822.13. Tho receipts were, unusually high for October, owing to the fact that a number of settlements of corpora tion taxes were made In that month instead of being made in September. V. W. WOOD Js Wayno county's noxt Treasurer. His voto In 35 districts was S704 against 2374 for A. P. Voigt.
