FRIDAY, NOVEMIIER 34, 1011.
November Is proverbially a month
plenty of sunshine In the homo.
John Temple Graves, who delivered his scholarly lecture upon " The
Reign of the Demagogue" during Institute week, was the running mate
of William Jennings Bryan for the Presidency.
HOLIDAY SEASON HERE.
It Is now only five weeks until Christmas Day and less than two
weeks until Thanksgiving Day, two great holidays that the people of
Honesdale and vicinity always appropriately observe On Thanksgiving
morning union sorvlces will be held in the Central Methodist Episcopal
church. Rev. G. S. Wendell, pastor of the First Baptist church, will de
liver the annual sermon appropriate to the day. The prospects this year
are excollent for a pleasant and profitable observation of these events.
TIIE COUNTItY EDITOR.
The man who edits the average country newspaper cannot well avoid
treading on somebody's toes continually; must expect tot be censured often
for unintentional failures; must expect hard work and little thanks; must
expect to be called a coward because he does not "pitch Into" everything
that somebody thinks is wrong, and a fool if he speaks out too plainly on
public evils; he must expect to grind other people's axes and turn the
grindstone himself. Still we think It is one of the noblest professions on
earth; the one In which the earnest man can do the most good to his
fellow man and in which an honorable man can wield much power for
PATRONIZE YOUIt HOME MERCHANT.
Most of the worklngmen in this community have been regularly em
ployed during the past year. Between now and Christmas there will oc
cur several pay days, and already the merchants, realizing the extent to
which the early shopping movement has spread, are imparting an air of
tho holiday season to their stores. Shortly the holiday rush will be on in
earnest, and during the days of hustle and bustle, happily will be those
who were farslghted In advance. Do your shopping at home. The
Honesdale merchants havo just as good selections In holiday gifts as
are obtainable anywhere else and the goods are just as cheap. Patron
Izo your homo merchants.
DESIRE CHANGE IN ELECTION LAWS.
It is altogether likely, from present Indications that the next legisla
ture will hear a good deal about the last election. From every quarter
come complaints of the size of the ticket and the tedlousness of the work
of the election officers under the now order of things which does away with
tho old spring municipal elections and provides for tho voting of munici
pal and county officers at the same election.
Nor are the complaints entirely from this source for many voters ar
gue that there is entirely too much time required In the election booth
to properly understand the ticket to select tho candidates for whom they
desire to cast their ballots.
John Temple Graves, who was In Honesdale last week, Is one of
tho editorial writers upon the Now York American and Journal. Mr.
Graves In writing upon children and parents states If a parent says that he
cannot bring up his children and control them without beating them, you
(may say to that parent:
You never struck a child In your life except when you were angry, and
you would not have dared to strike It If It had been of your own size.
Children 'born of decent parents can be brought up, and ARE brought
up, without beatings, and if yours are a different kind of children It Is a
reflection on YOU, and on your whole brood and family.
Tho poor, ignorant hen can teach Its young ones to scratch and hunt
worms, and acquire whatever education they need, without hurting them,
and a human being should he able to do for his own as much as a hen can
TIIE PEOPLE TO DECIDE.
The political campaign of next year will bo much simpler than tho one
this year. There will be comparatively few candidates to nominate at tho
primaries and to vote for at the general election. At tho primaries candi
dates for Congress and for the Legislature will bo nominated and delegates
to the national and State conventions will ho elected. Tho ballot will be
small. At the general election candidates for presidential electors, State
Treasurer, Auditor General, Congress and Legislature will bo voted for.
This ballot, too, will he comparatively small. Tho candidates 'for Auditor
General and State Treasurer are selected at the State Conventions.
Tho campaign will bo waged entirely on national and State Issues.
There will not bo tho name of a single county or municipal candidate on
tho ballot. Elections for these officials are hold only once every two years
under the constitutional amendments. Judging from present conditions,
tho tariff will bo tho leading issue. It will bo left to the people- to decide
whether tho old haphazard system of revising tho tariff shall prevail or
tho now plan advocated by tho President.
Favors Two Election Districts.
If the election board is overwork
ed, as a matter of simple justice .they
should be relieved. Eighteen hours
aro too long for any man to work at
anything. Without question Hones
dalo borough should be divided Into
two wards. The obvious division
lino would bo the river.
Republicans everywhero aro Jubi
lant over tho returns from the elec
tions of November 7th. Tho victories
in New York and New Jorsey were
most significant and if maintained,
point to a gain of two Republican
United States Senators. Maryland
elected n Republican Governor for
the first time In many years and
Rhode Island, where the tariff was
the whole issue, went decisively Re
publican. Tho majority of Governor
Foss In Massachusetts was cut down
by the Citizen Publishing Company.

of clouds, but that need not hinder
from 35,000 to 7,000 but all the rest
of the Republican ticket was elected
and Massachusetts will be In the Re
publican column next year, as will
all other New Engand States with
New York and New Jersey.
rno Congressional elections re
sulted very favorably from a Repub
lican standpoint. In tho first Now
Jersey District whore H. C. Louden
slager received only 840 plurality last
year, w. J. Browning received 3,000
this year. A Republican was elected
to succeed a Democrat In the four
teonth Pennsylvania district. In tho
second Kansas district a Democrat
was elected to fill the unexpired term
of Mr. Mitchell, duo to a factional
fight, but tho district will elect a Re
publican next year and tho lndlca
Hons aro that the Republicans will
have a good substantial majority In
tho next House of Representatives.
President Tart and his friends con
sider his trip a great success from
overy standpoint. It brought him
close to the people and showed them
what an earnest, honest, candid Pres
ident they have. Mr, Taft explained
Tils views of public questions and his
arguments were unanswerable. Es
pecially clear did he make his rea
sons for veotlng tho Democratic tar
iff bills of the extra session. He
showed that tho enactment and oper
ation of those bills would have
brought destruction to our Industries
and Inadequate revenue to tho Treas
ury. Tho bills were simply a hodge
podge of hasty framing and wore
devised with no idea of justice or
Much has been said of Mr. Taft's
Jocular allusion to tho possibility of
Domocratlc victory next year. It was
a seml-facetlous remark and nothing
more. Mr. Taft is a very generous,
whole-hearted man. Ho is not a poli
tician who goes about claiming every
thing. He Is the most modest Presi
dent we ever had. But ho is none
the less confident that he will bo re
elected and with him a 'Republican
House of Representatives. Ho 'be
lieves In and relies on the common
sense of the people.
The President's trip was beneficial
not only to himself but to the people.
It brought him Into close touch with
the masses and he found out what
they wanted and these wants will be
reflected In his message to Congress
upon which he is now at work. It
will perhaps be tho most Important
message of his first term. He will
probably not allude to the tarlk, mak
ing that the subject of a special mes
sage afterwards. But ho will advise
legislation that will help business
and carry greater benefits to the peo
ple. As the message will be before
the people In a few days It Is useless
to 'discuss It at this time.
No previous administration can
show such advanced and progressive
results as the work accomplished by
President Taft and his cabinet offi
cers. Of course as wo lncreaso In
population, wealth and power there is
more work to do and greater respon
sibilities to meet, but tho present
administration has not only been
equal to the task but has taken up
new plans and put them Into execu
tion with most satisfactory results.
In all this work the President and
his cabinet have 'moved from a non
partisan standpoint. The trust prose
cutions; the tariff board; tho Conser
vation Measures; the economy and
efficiency plans, by which millions
have already been saved; the postal
inquiries, the monetary Investigation,
and various commissions have all
been inaugurated 'by tho President
for the ultimate benefit of the whole
people, and it may be added that all
of the appointments of President
Taft have been nonpolltical selecting
and appointing in every case the
man best equipped for the position.
What Rev. Rollin Howard Snys.
The eminent New York divine,
Rev. Rollin Howard, In a recent ser
mon, was gracious enough to say
" Madam X" teaches a better lesson
than the clergy have ever been able
to deliver. Tho noted novelist and
dramatisti Alexandre BIsson, Is at
his best in this play and its real
moult fully justifies Its remarkable
success. In tho selection of the
present company for "Madam X"
(which by the way Is tho only one
legally authorized to play It) tho
management exercised great care nojt
only In engaging artists of positive
ability, but "types" that fill the yjs
ual requirements of the roles- and
convey to the auditors the best' pos
sible effect of tho real characters liv
ing their parts on the stage. This
commendable and unusual effort as
sures a great deal of Interest and
enjoyment to audiences who caro for
less "acting" than for realizing true
embodiment of character. The moral
of "Madam X" is pure and uplifting;
teaching the greatest of all passions
"Mother Lovo" one feels ever so
much better after seeing It. "Madam
X" comes to town on Monday, Nov.
Transmitting Pictures Ry Wire.
It is a well-known fact that the
metal solenium varies in Its electrical
resistance with tho Intensity of the
light falling upon It. This peculiar
property of solenium has been made
usd of In a German apparatus, used
for telegraphing reproductions of
photographs. This achievement, al
though the device does not appear
as yet to have been put to commer
cial use, has naturally led to the
quickening of tho expectation that
the day will como when we shall be
able to see as well as talk over
wires charged with electricity. But
solenium, In spite of its advantages,
has held out no promise of our being
able to tell the colors of a distant
Bceno as the metal does not distin
guish between colors and Is therefore
Incapable of transmitting them. But
a professor In Amsterdam has dis
covered that another mineral also
varies In Its electrical conductivity
with tho light falling upon It and
that in addition It varies in its con
ductivity according to tho color of
that light. Green has only a slight
effect, red rays act much more
strongly, while violet rays reduce the
electrical Infusion to about ono two
hundredth of what It was In the
dark. In consequence It Is felt that
the use of this mineral, which Is
called stlbnlte, may eventually enable
us to tell colors at a distance. Stlb
nlte, however, Is not a new mineral,
but Is a common ore of antimony
which was known even to tho anci
ents, who. It is said, used to color
their eyebrows by running this reddish-brown
material over them.
