THOUGHT FOR TODAY.
Our character Is our will for what vta will
we are. Archbishop
Tho Republican party Is to bo congratulated when men of tho charac
tor and standing of Homer Greene and John W. Codding offer themselves
as candidates for delegate to a National Convention. There Is no compel
satlon attached to tho position, and the delegate must bear his own ex
penses. It is a matter of pure and disinterested party service. It is a pos
ition moreover which requires not only party fealty but Judgment and ex
perience. No qualifications which fits him for this service is lacking in
cither of the two gentlemen named. That they are not only willing but
desirous of representing their party nt the great convention, speaks well
not only for their party loyalty but for tho standing and principles of the
party that can command their services. Tho Republican voters of this
congressional district are fortunate to have tho opportunity of being repre
uo nod at Chicago by men of their calibre, character and standing.

THE NEXT STATE TREASURER.
Hon. C. Fred Wright, who is serving by appointment as treasurer of
tho State of Pennsylvania, will bo a candidate for the nomination to that
office at the next Republican State Convention, and will undoubtedly be
Ho has been one of the 'best treasurers the state ever had. His long
experience as a banker, and his many years of successful training in large
business enterprises havo endowed him with a peculiar fitness to handle un
dorstandingly the finances of tho stato. He has given the offlco the benefit
of his personal attention, and has conducted the business with vigor, -with
exactness and to tho great advantage of the commonwealth, as tho records
of his abundantly show. His nomination at the State Convention for
the coming full term should be a matter of course, and if nominated his
election will be practically assured.
What is said in another place on this page concerning tho good fortune
of tho Republican party In being able to enlist tho services of such men as
Homer Greene and John W. Codding as candidates for delegate to the Na
tional Convention may be said with equal force of William F. Riofler and
Dr. L. P. Cooke who are candidates for delegate to tho State Convention.
Both of those last named are men of high standing and character, both aro
men of largo business interests which require their constant and careful
attention. In standing as candidates for stato delegate they are entirely
unselfish, they have no axes to grind, nothing to gain except the satlsfac
tion of having served their party and the people of tho state. Moreover,
If elected, they will go to tho convention with a full knowledge of tho
party's needs and the people's wishes They are no recent acqulsltibns to
tho party, nor are they dormant timber now starting for the first time into
-party life. For a quarter of a century they have been among tho foremost
In tho party counsels, have pratlclpated actively and honorably in all of tho
party struggles, victories and defeats, are well known by tho Republican
Toters of Wayne county and have their confidence and good will. It
-would be difficult to find better men to send to a state convention, and the
Republicans of Wayne county are to bo congratulated on being able to
command their services.
Tho Ktnto Department Received Over
1,500 of Oio Petitions Tills leur.
Chlof Clerk Georgo D. Thorn, of
tho Stnto Department, Harrlsburg, es
tlmates that fully 1.G00 nominating
petitions were on file nt tho State
Canitol for congressional, senatorial
and legislative nominations and that
all records would bo broken. It was
figured out that there wero between
1.300 and 1,400 nominations on tuc
but later scrutiny showed that over
1,500 wero In the files.
Tho highest previous record was in
1010. when 1,400 petitions were en
tered for tho same nominations, but
this year, owing to activity of tho
Prohibitionists and Socialsts in mat
inc nominations, tho difference made
by failure of Keystoners to nominate
has been more tnan made up. beven
petitions which arrived at tho Harris
burg postofllco after midnight on
Saturday were rejected, three of them
did not come in until Monday morn
The department rejected four po
titions to bo candidates for sonato
in tho Fourth Philadelphia district
where Senator 'E. L. Tustln resigned
and the vacancy there will havo to
be filled by a special election, for
which papers will bo filed later on.

WARNS CONGRESS CANDIDATES,
THE RULE OF THE PEOPLE.
" Do you believo in tho rule of the people?" asks Col. Roosevelt In the
pagos of a recent number of his magazine, The Outlook.
Of course wo do, Colonel. We believo In It not only as a thing to 'bo
desired, but we believe In it as an accomplished and existing fact. In this
commonwealth especially, the people have the first and last say. If they
did not have it it would not be because they dod not have abundant op
portunity to have it. Take it in tho matter of elective ofllces In this state.
Our primary law, enacted by a Republican legislature and approved by a
Republican Governor, gives to tho voters the largest possible freedom of
choice in the selection of their candidates. A certain limited number,
from ten to two hundred of tho voters of any established party may, by
filing a petition In the proper offlce, have the name of their candidate
printed on the official ballot. Each wing or faction In tho party, any
group of men In the party has tho same privilege. Nothing could be furth
er from dictation or bosslsm. Nothing could put the sources of political
power more directly in tho hands of tho people. Under this system If the
Toters do not get the candidates they desire, t Is absolutely their own
fault. The primaries and the doors leading to them aro open wide. To say
that the people aro not and cannot bo in control of their own affairs under
our present system Is as false as It is foolish. The cry that tho people
ro deprived of their rights is the cry of the demagogue. It Is the wooden
horse concealed within which certain shrewd seekers after political con
trol hope to enter the citadel of power. Listen to the cry if you please but
take It for what It Is worth.
PROGRESS OR RETROGRESSION?
The spirit of progress and activity 1s moving In Honesdale and Wayne
-county. The recent number of real estate deals consummated, the prospects
of tho erection of several new buildings and the remodeling of others is
evidence that tho seemingly apathetic condition of affairs Is broken. Un
questionably thero are a number of people residing In Wayno county and
especially Honesdalo who would like to see It advance and prospor and are
willing to place tholr shoulder to tho wheel and get out of tho rut of Indlf
foronce. Yet thero are others who aro satisfied and set In their conserva
tlvo ways who think that things aro good enough as they stand, let alone
tmprovo thorn. Any municipality cannot stand still and prospor. It must
elthor advance or go behind.
Honesdalo Is now at a point whore It can ndvanco and become a city
of 10,000 Inhabitants. Tho Greater Honosdnlo opportunity Is gradually
bolng grasped and tho spirit seems to bo moving. Three sections of Texas
township recently petitioned tho Town Council for admlttanco and havo
been accepted. Individuals living in different parts of tho abovo named
township aro anxious to come in. This Is ample evidence that tho peoplo of
Texas aro moving 1n tho right direction. Honesdalo Is well on tho road
to a greator and better town. This movement needs 'the support of every
resident of Texas township who is out for bettor things, and wo know that
thoro aro nono but would wish to see this community experience a boom
on a safe and substantial basis.
By a mutual Impulso the realization seems to havo come to tho peoplo
that Honesdalo nvuBt not be loft to depend upon those natural processes of
accretion by which merely " good towns " grow. The awakening of tho
trade organizations and the chic associations with which Honosdale and
Texas township 1s provided, and their Impulse for co-oporatlon, Is hopeful
and Inspiring. It means a rovlval of tho forces that havo become latont
through tho onjoymont of a very comfortablo prosperity. Honesdale Is bo
elnnlng to learn that towns do not stand still any moro than peopie stand
still. Thoro must bo progress or retrogression, and Honesdale has. decided
for progress. We hope Honosdaleans generally will absorb this spirit and
with ono voice decdo that Honesdalo shall progress. Then when the op
pcrtunlty Is afforded work In co-operation with Texas township and wo
will havo Groater Honesdale.

ing hundreds of tho trees throughout
mo siaic, anu tno situation Is so dan
gerous that tho stato legislature has
appointed a commission to investi
gate tho spread of tho blight. A
great difficulty, however, lies In find
ing tho afflicted trees. In this work
tho Boy Scouts of America can be of
great valuo to tho commission and
tho Department of Forestry. The
uoy scouts are taKing up tho work
becauso they havo already had so
much fun going chestnut hunting
that their loyalty to tho sport com
pels them to do everything thoy can
to save the trees.
" It has occurred to us," writes
Irvln C. Williams, Pennsylvania
Deputy Commissioner of Forestry,
" that this would bo valuable exer
cise to Boy Scouts, It would teach
thorn woodcraft, would enablo thom
to recgnlzo tho disease, will teach
them how to discriminate between
wild chestnut trees, and other spec
ies of trees, and will enable them to

of the occurrence of tho disease.
This work will bo of gerat help to
tho commonwealth becauso the dis

trees aro to bo saved."
Scout Master E. G. Jenkins of the

Agent appointed outsldo of the 35

Commission. He had tho privilege
last fall of accompanying one of tho
most experienced experts on a tour
of lnspction, locating blighted trees,
and receiving field Instructions.
Recently a number of Scout Mas
ters In the state have been appointed
Field Agents. As such, they aro at
liberty to enter any woodland or
other property to cxamino chestnut

use proper measures In combating It,
and with some training the boys can
assist In locating the disease and In

tho law relating to trout fishln
changed so that thoro will be no limit
to the bIzo of fish caught but tho limit
as to the numbor caught will bo re

no trout less than six Inches may bo
retained when caught, and a fislior
man is limited to 40 In ono day.
Old exports, who havo knowledge
whoreof they talk, and ono of them

that when a trout of less than six in

Quick changes of temperature and the advent of spring
