THOUGHT FOR TODAY.
Other things may bo seized by
might or purchased with money,
but knowledge Is to be gained only
by study. Johnson.
We refer the Independent to its
files about two years ago and thero,
in black and white, see how much
boom-matter It contained concerning
Honesdalo. Then upon another oc
casion, when Honesdalo experienced
an Old Home Week, how that journal
thought the time was not right for a
like celebration. Despite the opposi
tion ejected Into that paper by the
power behind the throne Old Home
Week was the most successful cele
bration of Its kind Honesdale ever
experienced. To cap the climax the
Independent, in an editorial, in last
Friday's issue, literally took the
credit of obtaining the Gurney Elec
tric Elevator company's new estab
lishment. If the Independent has a
change of heart many more times
people won't know where it stands.
OUR GCRXEY EDITION SCORED A
That the Board of Trade, reading
public, out-of-town newspapers, and
people In general appreciated The
Citizen's special write-up concerning
the Gurney Electric Elevator com
pany's proposed new establishment,
which appeared In last Friday's issue,
Is evinced by the many complimen
tary and flattering remarks we have
The Citizen was the first Hones
dale paper to present this exceeding
ly glad and good news to the public.
Shortly after the paper had gone to
press a bulletin containing the full
details of this new acquisition for
.Honesdale. was placed at the en
trance of the Citizen offlco on Main
street. The leading headline was
played-up in red ink and immediate
ly caught the reader's eye. The
first, fourth and fifth pages contain
ed special pictures of local men who
helped acquire this Industry and
Illustrated the article. An exclusive
cut of the block plan of the large fac
tory appeared on the first page.
There was a big demand for The Cit
izen, wo being compelled to print a
second edition of that paper. The
Issue scored a lilt and from reports
we feel repaid for our efforts. If
wo attempted to print the compli
mentary remarks we heard concern
ing the Gurney number It would
more than fill the forty-eight col
umns of this paper. We, however,
-will not outgrow the size of our hat,
but will keep right along progressive
lines and continue to give the people
of Honesdalo and Wayne county as
good a newspaper as Is published.

PRESI DKXTIAL ELECTORS.
In view of certain suggestions
that havo recently been made con
cerning the duties and privileges of
presidential electors, It may bo of
interest to consider briefly their pre
rogatives under tho federal consti
tution. This constitution was adopt
ed in 1787 and the section relating
to presidential electors was amend
ed in 1804. As It now stands each
stato Is entitled to bo represented In
tho electoral college by "a number
of electors equal to tho whole num
ber of senators and representatives
to which tho stato may bo entitled In
tho congress." It was the purpose
of tho framers of tho constitution to
leavo tho selection of a president en
tirely to this body of electors who
wero expected to bo mon of judg
ment, patriotism and Impartiality.
'Party nominations for tho office
wero not then contemplated. This
Idea of the constitution makers was
by the Citizen Publishing Company.

carried out in all presidential elec
tions up to and Including tho elec
tion of 1790. Tho electors felt free
to uso their own judgment as to
whom they should vote for, and there
were many scattering votes in the
electoral colleges. But In tho fourth
presidential election the line between
the two great parties, Federalist and
(Republican, was closely drawn, each
party put Its candldato In tho field,
and electors were chosen, morally If
not actually, pledged to vote for the
candidate of tho party that had ap
pointed them. From that day to the
present there has not been a single
instance of an elector bolting or be
traying tho candidate named by his
party. While thero Is no written
law that binds an elector to voto for
his party's candidate for the presi
dency he is nevertheless as fully
bound to do so by tho law of custom
and political morality, as though not
to do so worked a violation of the
criminal code. Indeed political sen
timent concerning the matter is such
in tho Unted States that a presiden
tial elector who should fall to vote
for his party's candidate for the pres-
dency might as well expatriate him
self at once. He would receive and
probably deserve the obloquy of all
good citizens as long as he should
It Is hardly supposable therefore
that any Republican presidential
elector now nominated and to be
chosen at the polls In November,
will break away from the moral
precedent established more than a
century ago, and observed without a
break to tho present time. Declara
tions of excited politicians that this
may be done in the event of a cer
tain nomination being made at Chi
cago should not be taken seriously.
No matter who receives tho Republi
can nomination at Chicago, tho Re
publican electors who will bo elected
in November will cast their votes for
him in the electoral college. To do
otherwise would be a betrayal of
trust and breaking of faith such as
would bring a condemnation so se
vere and lasting that no man would
dare to face it. It Is pretty sure that
thoso who are reckoning on a bolt
by electors aro reckoning without

Honesdale has secured a new In

prise that makes a town grow.
Now that the Greater Honesdale
Board of Trade has engineered the
proposition of tho Gurney Electric
Elevator company, making possible
for this proposed largo establishment
to begin work at once, the Board
begs to announce that in all proba
bility the paving of Main street with

will be remembered that tho Street

the paving of Main street with brick.

"The Greater Honesdale Board of

shown by the announcement that, af

planning, It has succeeded in induc
ing the Gurney Electric Elevator Co.,
which does a business of a million
and a half dollars a year, to locate
Its new manufacturing establish

Citizen devotes a large portion of its

structive story of how tho important
transaction was accomplished. To
show the magnitude of the task un
dertaken by a small town, it Is only
necessary to say that in order to se
cure the industry, it was necessary
to raise $200,000, the money to be
furnished as a loan to the elevator
company, secured by five per cent,

That tho llttlo borough of Hones
dalo should be able to go out and get
a big elevator plant which means tho
erection of a $200,000 building and
employment of four hundred men Is
a big thing, and when It Is realzled
that It expects to do a business
close to $2,000,000 a year It Impres
ses ono emphatically.
Honesdalo Is ono of tho most de
lightful towns in this section of tho
state to live In. It Is essentially la
an agricultural community. It has
not tho railroads that Scranton Is
blessed with, nor has It tho fuel at
the back door as has Scranton, but
what it lacks in this It makes up in
energy and enterprise and none will
dare but say that it is entitled to tho
new industry. That it has a livo
board of trade Is indicated by its suc
cess after a year's efforts to get tho
plant. What a fino thing It would bo
could Scranton get an industry of
such magnitude, particularly slnco
the Allis-Chalmers company closed
shop. The big empty building that
this company left is hard to pass by
without feeling the loss It represent
ed when the company quit here. Its
windows are still boarded and its
doors fastened. It Is waiting for a
tenant. Maybe the board of trade
will get one.
That so big a building should
stand Idle In tho heart of the city
and with such facilities as aro to be
had Is not creditable nor encourag
ing to the Industries that remain.
Surely somewhere in this country
there is an Industry to take Its place.
Honesdale got an elevator plant.
Mayhap Scranton can not get one,
but how about that automobile plant
we heard of from time to time In the
last year? The board of trado is
devoting Itself to getting a thousand
members, and is meeting with rea
sonable success. It ought not be for
gotten, however, that a big member
ship is not always necessary to get
an industry. Sometimes three men
can do moro than a hundred. Tho
Scranton Board of Trade has good
material in it and we do not doubt
that properly directed energy will re
sult in new industries to fill the gaps.
As an example, Honesdalo furnishes
a lesson that is interesting and hope
ful. except Sunday, directly to Honesdale,
