The 'Republican National Committee at Its meeting in Washington
selected Chicago for the 1912 convention at which candidates for President
and Vice-President are to be named. The convention will meet on Juno
18. These officers were elected: Chairman, former Governor John F. Hill
of Maine for the interim till the nomination shall be made, when a new
chairman-campaign manager will be elected; secretary, Hayward of Ne
braska; committee on convention arrangements, Harry New of Indiana,
chairman; David Mulvane, 'Kansas; Franklin Murphy, INew Jersey; E. C.
Duncan, North Carolina; Ralph' E. Williams, Oregon; Arthur I. Vorye,
Ohio; Victor Rosewater, Nebraska. This committee will make all the ar
rangements for the convention and name the temporary officers.
Jonothan Swift gave it as his opinion that "whoever could make two
cars of corn, or two blades of grass to grow upon a spot of ground where
only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essen
tial service to his country, .than the whole race of politicians put together."
For over a century the world has accepted this as a truism, and by the
same logic Dan Rice who made an apple orchard to grow on the top of a
mountain in Perry county, where nothing but weeds and underbrush grew
before, has a rather largo claim to public esteem and gratitude.
Practical apple growers have known for a long time that the top of
mountains such as we have In Wayne county is a good place to .plant an
orchard. Nevertheless overy man who leads In a movement, who iblazes
a trail In a new country, as It were, must have a soul akin to that that In
spired Christopher Columbus, and we venture the assertion that Dan Rice
Is well worth knowing; a philosopher and a guide as well as an apple
grower, and a man that Perry county may well be proud of. His example
will lead to a material Increase in the wealth of the whole State and add
to the sum of happiness.
Years ago we used to think that the goods a grocer took out of his
store for his personal use didn't cost him anything, and that the wearing
apparel taken by the clothier out of his store was free. "We 'have since
learned our mistake.
No doubt a good many adults, not children, think that the publisher
of a newspaper gets his space free, but he is in the same catagory as the
grocer and the clothier of our childish fancy. The Munro, La., Star puts It
Every lino in a newspaper costs its publisher something. If It is to
benefit some individual, he may fairly expect it to say something. You
do not go into a grocery store and ask tho proprietor to hand you out ten
pounds of sugar for nothing, even though tho grocer may be a personal
friend and the gift might not be a largo one. If the beneficiary of adver
tising does not pay for it, the proprietor has to settle the bill. Neverthe
less, many people cannot seem to .learn that a newspaper pays Its expenses
by renting space and that It is Just as much entitled to collect ront for
every day that space is occupied as you are for the house you ront to a

Favors Homer Greene.
Editor Tho Citizen:
Having read in your recent issue
relative to having Homer Greeno ap
pointed Commissioners' Attorney, I
would like to add my approval to this
appointment. Mr. Greene is well
thought of- In this township and the
commissioners will make no mistake
in having him for counsel.
Ariel, Pa.
They Should Piny Fair.
Editor Tho Citizen:
I wish to add a word in behalf of
the appointment of Homer Greene as
Commissioners' Attorney. Wo feel
that Lebanon loyally supported both
Republican commissioners in tho Te-
cent campaign and that they should
pay some little attention to their ad-
herants. We are sure or one thing
and that Is that neither Republican
commissioner need over expect an
other county office of any description
unless they play fair with their con
stituents and cIVo us the man we
want or they will see tho folly of
trying to force upon us a man that
wo most emphatically dor not want
ror ono minute.
LT ITH the closo of 1911 tho manufacturers and business men in gener
Y al have experienced a very prosperous and successful twelve
months. As a whole business has been good notwithstanding the depress
ed condition of affairs In general. Industrially Honesdale's future is
'bright. The different shops that are closed for the usual holiday season
will reopen January 2 with prospects of working steadily the rest of the
Nothing could speak in words louder for the prosperity of Honesdale
and Wayne county thnn tho growing and healthy condition of its banks.
During tho year Just passed there has been about a quarter of a million
of dollars deposited In the Wayne County Savings, Honesdale Dime,
Farmers and Mechanics and First National Bank of 'Honesdale.
The future of Honesdale's financial institutions is Indeed bright. Good
banks attract Investors to any city or town, because these Institutions are
the best criterion by which to Judge of the condition of a municipality.
Tho attraction of investors means more money for tho prosecution of new
enterprises, now enterprises entail new commercial plants, which necessi
tate increase in workmen, which means increase In population and an
Immense stride toward the realization of Greater Honesdale.
That articles made in Honesdale aro good and. have wearing qualities
1b demonstrated In tho following. Michael Horrman; wagon maker, of this
place, has manufactured vehicles toy hand over fortyt years. Mr. Herrman
recently told the writer that many wagons made by him several years ago
are running to-day. He told an instance in which a wagon was made in
1868 for Messrs. Krantz & Hartung, when they started In business In
Honesdale. It is in use to-day and stated that he Just placed the 29th
set of tiros on the original wheels. This speaks good for a home industry.
What is true concerning Mr. Herrman's business Is also true of other I

Another Voto for Homer Greene.
Editor Tho Citizen:
I notice with a. great deal of pleas
ure tho effort being made through
the columns of The Citizen by voters
of various townships to secure the
appointment of Homer Greene as at
torney for the county commissioners.
It certainly appears reasonable that
If ono lawyer has held the position
or attorney for the county for ten
years that another lawyer should be
given the office If he wants It and is
capa'blo of filling the position. There
is certainly no question as to the abil
ity of .Homer Greene to take care of
the duties of the position and if he
wants it he should have It. He is
certainly a good, straightforward at
torney who has shown .his interest
dn the welfare of the county in vari
ous ways, and the least the county
commissioners could do would be to
give him the office In question, and
I trust the effort made by citizens
from various sections of the county
to secure for him t'ho attorneyship
for the county will be successful.
Sterling AVants Greeno.
Editor The Citizen:
In regard to the appointing of a
Commissioners' Attorney by the
commissioners, we would like to say
that so far as Sterling is concerned
nothing would please us better than
to 'honor the office by appointing
Homer Greene, and we will all say
Special Correspondent.
President Taft's annual message
was approved from one end ot the
country to the, other. The Idea of
dealing mainly with one subject- em
phasized the matter far more than.'if
the message had been ten times as
long dealing with a score of sub
jects. The message has been follow
ed by others whldh In turn will be
followed by more from time to time
during the session.
But the messages of President
Taft will have scant recognition by
the House majority which seems
bound to Inaugurate legislation re
gardless of the recommendations of
the Chief Executive. In the matter
of appropriations and tariff legisla
tion the bills presented will toe Demo
cratic 'bills regardless of the best In
terests of the country. These can of
course bo amended in the Senate or
vetoed by t)he President should they
ever reach him. It Is not likely then
that any destructive legislation can
be enacted at this session of Con
gress. 'Democratic economy has most em
phatically been changed to Demo
cratic profligacy and waste. The
Coming appropriation bill will, It is
expected, carry a much larger sum
than ever before in our history. The
raid on the Treasury has already be
gun and there Is no telling whero It
would end were there not a Repub
lican Senate and President to check
the reckless onslaught.
A score or more of so-called inves
tigating committees have been pro
vided for by the Democratic House.
These committees are costing tho
Government thousands of dollars a
week and In the end tho cost will
be enormous for Junketing trips, for
extra stenographers, for printing and
In mnny other ways, without any re
sult beneficial to the country. So far
nothing has been found to Justify
these great expenditures and It Is not
expected that anything will be dis
covered. The Tesult of Democratic legisla
tion so far has toeen void, except the
prominence given to certain members
who could have attained publicity In
no other way. This obviously Is for
tho purpose of securing re-election
but when the people learn the truth
there is liable to be many surprises
when the votes are counted next No
vember. Tho tariff question will soon bo
well defined and will no doubt bo the
issue of the .coming campaign. It i
will be a clear cut Issue, between ade
quate Protection and a tariff for rev
enue only. Speaker Clark and Chair
man Underwood have put the Demo
crats on record as opposed any pro
tection whatever to American labor
and industry but favor such duties as
will allow of vastly Increased im
portations which must displace our
homo productions or compel wages
to be reduced to the foreign level.
The Republican policy will con
tinue to be a plea for such duties,
and such duties only, as will equal
the difference in the cost of produc
tion here and abroad, with a reason
able profit for our farmers, miners
md manufacturers. This should
overshadow every other question in
uio coming campaign and there Is
not the slightest doubt that Protec-
will be To-olected and with him a
Republican House of Representatives
to work with a Republican Senate.
The present Protective Tariff per
mits tho largest Importations ever
known more than ?1, 500, 000, 000.
It also produces more revenue than
any other tariff In our history.
Labor's share in tariff benefits Is, to
be found In wages from two to twen
ty times higher than in other parts
of tho world; also In t'ho certainty of
employment. Labor's share Is rep
resented in the higher standard of
living and in tho nearly ?5,000,000,
000 of deposits In American savings
banks, and as much more In build
ing and loan associations, life Insur
ance, etc.
Tho percentage of latoor cost is al
ways underrated by Free-Traders.
Cost of production in clothing goes
far back of tlhe single Item of wages
paid for weaving the cloth. Labor
cost is all along the line, from the
foaling of the lamb to the fabric,
while back of that Is the labor cost
which began with the first shovel 'of
dirt In digging for the .foundation of
the factory, and continued until tho
wheels began to turn. Labor cost
and production cost aro practically
synonymous terms.
