This Is not a matter to bo delayed

being delayed. . Mr. Fllnn, who is a
leader In the now party, Intending If
possible to destroy the Republican
party, Is able to prevent the reslgna
tlon of tbo Roosevelt men on the
Republican ticket until all possible
Injury has been done to President
Taft and all tho advantages Mr.
Fllnn can get out of it have been ob
tained. In open hostility to tho par
ty Mr. Fllnn is also in control of
what is called tho Republican State

has reason to feel that whatever

These facts have created an em
barrassing situation in the State, but
they do not make tho Issue one be
tween Penrose and Flinn. If Mr
Fllnn. is an issue at all It is with the
whole body of Pennsylvania Republi
cans because no is standing in tne
way of fair and honorable treatment
of their candidate for President.
Having got aboard his new craft
himself he is leaving his men on
the Republican ship to disable it as
much as possible and to scuttle It if
they can. The presence of these hos
tile elements both on the electoral
ticket and the State Committee has
delayed the work of the Republican
campaign, as it was intended to do.
It has prevented organization and ef

THE ISSUE WITH FLINN.
In his authorized statement WI1
Ham Flinn draws the issue In thl
btato as one between himself and
Senator Penrose. That may bo tho
Fllnn view of It tho view of a cun
nlug and unscrupulous politician to
whom no trick Is unhandy If it can
be made to servo his personal ends
But tho hundreds of thousands of
Republicans of the Stato who aro not
concerned In tho personal fortunes
of either Senator Penrose or William
Fllnn, but Who are loyal to the prin
clples and candidates of tho Ropub
ncan party, navo no such narrow
view of the situation. Mr. Fllnn
wants to savo himself, and ho Is using
all tho chicanery of which he Is mas
ter In the effort to do it, but that Is
not the Issue. Tho question Immedl
ntely confronting tho Republicans of
the State Is integrity of tbolr elec
toral ticket. Tho matter of first Im
portance is to get a complete list of
electoral candidates for whom the
Republicans of tbo State can vote
with confidence that they aro voting
for the regular Republican nominees
for President and VIco-PresIdent.

Have you awakened to tho fact
that tbo Honesdale base ball team Is
playing good ball? White Mills has
the best team this year that we ever
knew them to have (and that's go
ing some) but they wero not as
good as the locals on Saturday. It
was the best played game seen here
this year; tho locals again showing
tbe effects of the coaching of Captain
"King" Brader, while the playing
of the White Mills boys was, as
usual, very good, although Tuman
failed to show any of his stato league
form. Taken as a whole that White
Mills bunch are a gentlemanly lot
of fellows as well as being good ball
players, and wo are always glad to
eeo them scheduled to play on our
lot. White Mills defeated Hawley
in three straight Ramos. which
shows that the locals were playing
good ball, especially as Walto Mills
had their star slabman Loll in tne
box, who let Hawley down with four
hits on one or two occasions; but

No, tho Issuo Is not between Fllnn
and (Penrose; it Is between Flinn and
the loyal Republicans of the State, all
of them, who are supporting the prin
ciples and candidates of their party,
which Mr. Fllnn has deserted, and to
which be is In open and declared hos

PENROSE IS CORROBORATED
John D. Archbold, of tho Standard
un company, in his testimony on
Friday last before the Senato Com
mlttee, clearly proved that ho had
contributed $125,000 to tho Roose
velt campaign in 1904 and Intimated
that tho Colonel was fully cognizant
of tho transaction. This Is a com
pleto corroboration of tho statement
made a few days ago by Senator
Penroso In answer to tho Fllnn al
legation. Colonel Roosevelt again
asserts that ho had no personal
knowledge of tho Standard Oil con
trlbutlon, but the political pot is
boiling and tho end is not yet. It
Is expected that Roosevelt and Fllnn
will bo called beforo tho Senato com
mltteo before it concludes its Inves

Right here wo would like to call
tho 'Hawley Times Sporting Editor's

good with the Hawley team as the
players aro also a nice lot of young
fellows nnd get along just as good
with our boys if It wero not for the
outsiders who come looking fo
trouble, If it wero not for tho fact
that the majority of those outsiders

GOLDEN WEDDING IN HILLS OF
A golden wedding is an unusual
event even where tho unusual hap
pens frequently, but when such a
wedding occurs in the midst of tho
quiet hills around Shehawken, in
the highlands of Wayne, a special
interest attaches to this revival of
the memories of a half century ago.

in 1843, and will have reached tho

life in a few months, while Mrs.
Stanton has soen sixty-seven Sum

isn't sticky! Zemo is a fine, clear,
