NEXT REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. 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. PEOPLE'S FORUM. DAN RICE, PUBLIC BENEFACTOR. 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. NEWSPAPER SPACE. 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 concisely: 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 tenttut. The Citizen Publishing Com pany assumes no measuro of re sponsibility for any articles which may appear In this col iumn. ' 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. REPUBLICAN VOTER. 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. LEBANON FARMER. COME TO 1IONESDALE WE'LL SHOW YOU DZOW. 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 yoar. 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 In A liofr rlao tnAatail In TT.... ..-.I t .. i I ! 1 1 mi . ... - . ' iu jiuuuBuuiu uuu viLHuvj'. lug opportunities anoraea here aro manifold and should attract many people to our beautiful and neauniui town, uomo to Honesdale we'll show you how 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. AN ARIEL VOTER. 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 amen. A STERLINGITE. WASHINGTON LETTER. 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. OBITUARY.
