following declaration of principles
was unanimously adopted:
The spirit of tho times is progres
sive. The man who is not progres
sive cannot hope to advance or to
hold his position In business, poll
tics or religion.
We are Justly proud of tho fact
that our own Keystone state was
one of the first, by her votes In tho
.primaries, to declare emphatically
for progressire leadership under the
direction and by the .power of tho
people and for clean and honest men
for public office.
We commend our state legislature
in special session In 1900, for hav
ing passed a Uniform Primary act
which provides that a state delegate
can request and have printed upon a
primary ballot whom he will favor
in a state convention, because of Its
proven beneficial and wholesome
The Constitution- was ordained
and established'' that tho people
might rule and they have .thereunder
undoubted right to be heard. Every
man who asks for the suffrages of
the people should declare openly
and above board what he stands for
and for what ho means to support.
By this means only can the people
We, therefore, commend the plan
laid down by the 'Harrisburg con
vention that tho people should
know how their representative Is go
ing to vote and he therefore should
declare his Intentions that his con
stituency may know his position.
We especially commend the ac
tion of the state convention for its
removal from the hands of an in
dividual political boss tho control of
law-making and the placing of this
power In the hands of the people
through Its appointment of a legis
lative committee to draft proposed
legislation, and tho keeping alive
for two years of this convention for
the purpose of re-assembling it, If
necessary, on the call of the com
mittee to urge passage of legislation
demanded by the people.
We heartily endorse as a whole
the platform adopted 'by tho Repub
lican state convention at (Harris
burg on May 1st and call upon all
"Republicans In Wayno county to
support by Influence and vote tho
candidates nominated thereat and
standing on said platform. We also
ask the same support for Hon. 11.
Clark Jackson for representative and
Hon. W. D. B. Alney for member of
Congress on the grounds that they
support the principles laid down in
'We commend Messrs. Crossley
and Samson, our two Roosovelt dele
gates to the state convention, for
carrying out tho wishes of their
constituency, and also for having
secured the honor of naming Supt.
J. J. Koehler for presidential elector
from tho 'Fourteenth Congressional

and wero attended by a largo num

parishioners of Grace Episcopal
The services consisted of special
consecration and evening prayer.
Tho Instruments of donation wero
read by Senior 'Warden Samuel
Saunders. Tho consecration was
read by Rev. A. L. Whlttaker, rector
of Graco Episcopal church, for Bishop
Talbot. Lewis Simons, secretary
of Christ church vestry was con

very briefly and told of the gratitude
and appreciation of the earnestness
and faithfulness of the people which
made It possible for the church. He

from Boston University, of Cam
bridge, Mass., has already taken up
the duties as rector and Is under
Rev. A. L. Whlttaker, of Graco
E,piscopul church, Honesdale. To
Rev. Mr. Whlttaker Christ church
owes Its existence. It was through
his untiring efforts that it became
possible that a place of worship was
erected at Indian Orchard.
Rev. A. L. Whlttaker held Episco
pal services June 1, 1908, In tho
Indian Orchard school house. This
was followed by the organization of
a Sunday school held the next Sun
day and services havo since been
held. The first superintendent was
Samuel Miller. He faithfully per
formed his duties for a year. Since
E. IE. Gregory, who was equally
faithful has continued to servo in
that capacity. About a year ago the
project was started which resulted In
the building of Christ church. The
trustees of the Indian Orchard
Cemetery company very gladly fell
In with tho proposition. They made
a grant of $400 from the funds on
condition that the rector of Grace
Episcopal church, Honesdale, Rev.
A. L. 'Whlttaker, should raise $300.
The hustling rector surprised the
trustees and raised over $800.
Encouraged by the magnlflcent
Btart, the building and finance com
mittees went eagerly and enthusias
tically to work and the result is a
very pretty Gothic church or panel
stucco or stippled concrete. The
church la mounted with a castlated
towor 14 feet square.
Tho interior Is finished in weath
ered oak and the windows are of
stained glass, four being Memorial
windows, which makes a very pretty
effect. The building has a fine
basement suitable for holding
socials and will be used as a Sunday
school room. It will bo heated by
hot air, a furnace being Installed.
The treasurer's report shows a
total expenditure of $3,200, In
cluding an Item of $200 for labor,
which was donated. Of the original
cost all except $140 Is paid, which
Is for furnishings and the sidewalk.
This is very gratifying to tho par
