Six months ago Roosevelt was op
posed to woman suffrage. Three

ladles' card party was playing for a
two dollar book as a prize, the sons
of these samo ladies, (small boys),
were arrested in a haymow while
playing for a fifty cent prize. They
had originated a club like their
mothers'. Tho mothers cried and
said: "What a terrible place this
town is to raise boys in anyway."
Served them right. They might have
known the difference between a hay
mow and a parlor, and a two-dollar
and a fifty-cent prize.
Dr. Albert Robin, one of the fore

In view of the facts, known to tho
entire country, this statement is al
most tho limit of effrontery. One
would imagine that Mr. Roosevelt
was talking in Egypt instead of to an
Intelligent audience of Minnesota
farmers who read the newspapers.
It need scarcely bo said again, as
the drama was acted out before all
men, that Gov. Wilson won as a re
sult of the pressure of public opin
ion In his favor. No more grotesque
perversion of the facts could be made
than to say he was "arranged" for by
a combination of bosses, big or lit

this valiant and knightly "fighter"

Who keeps on repeating slanders,
hoping some of his mud will stick?
Incidentally, this cheap and false
talk, when tho country has really
serious problems to solve, is a meas

THE NEW PARTY.
A number of honest, sincere folk
have a leaning toward the new party
because it is new. They are weary of
tho machinery of the old parties and
they are hopeful of a new era in
which there shall somehow be a par
ty voicing directly the better hopes of
The course of events at Syracuse
Is a rude shattering of these Ideals.
Ambition, jealousy and machine tac
tics have flung out their banners in
the new party. And worst of all, the
hand of the boss has appeared on the
scene to direct the entire proceed
ings. This turn of events will doubtless
give a sad shock to the idealists in
the Progressive convention. But, in
truth, they havo been ostriches with
their heads In the sand in expecting
anything else. Tho political millen
nium is not here nnd cannot be hur
ried up over the horizon by singing
"Onward, Christian Soldiers" as a
campaign song. Until human nature
Is changed there will bo selfishness
and manipulation and dictatorial
leaders in political gatherings as in
every other sort of meeting.
What Is the bitterest pill, however,
for the sincere Progressive is tho fact
that their party not only Is develop
ing the human frailties of other par
ties but continues as it began, the
most completely bossed party that
our country has known. Its princi
ples were sifted, selected and chosen
by Theodore Roosevelt. It speaks
only as ho approves. So far from
being a direct expression of popular
will It Is little more than tho mani
kin of ono ambitious man. New

NEW ERIE TIME-TABLE SEPT H8.
A change In the Erlo time-table is
scheduled for Sept. 28. It Is stated
that tho Sunday morning Erie train
will be discontinued and that the
7:17 train will go back to tho win
ter schedule, that of leaving at 8:20
No mention has been made of the
discontinuance of the 8:08 Scranton
morning train, together with
tho Scranton afternoon train, arriv
ing here at 3:50 and leaving at G
o'clock. These trains, the former
only being run to Honesdale since the
summer schedule went into enect
last June, havo become very import
ant trains. They have gained a
large patronage and also give Hones
dale excellent mall service. The
business men of the town, banks, In
dustries, newspaper offices and In
dividuals of Honesdale, besides a
large number of peoplo residing In
southern Wayne county, make a
special appeal to the transportation
department of tho Erie company to
continue the Scranton trains. It is
the best service this company has
given Honesdale In several years and
it is indeed greatly appreciated.
We have been informed that the
Business Men's Association and
Honesdale Board of Trade have writ
ten letters to Erie headquarters in
New York telling tho company of
the Intrinsic value of their train ser
vice entering and leaving Hones
dale, and how much tho town prizes
their excellent passenger and freight
service. It is the earnest desire that
no change will be made in the opera
tion of these trains.

Dosing the stomach won't kill Ca

The quickest way -to kill germs Is
to breathe deep Into tho lungs the

As this antiseptic air passes over
the sore spots infested with Catarrh
germs, It not only destroys them,
but heals the inflamed membrane and
stops tho discharge of mucus.
Then hawking, spitting, snuffling,
crusts In nose and foul breath will
disappear, and vile, disgusting ca
tarrh will bo conquered.
