WILLIAM H. TAFT, PRESIDENT OF THE UXITED STATES.
UNDER TAFT'S ADMINISTRATION
The tariff has been revised. With
in a year following passage of the
Payne bill wages were increaseu
more than ?500,000,000. Industry
Is operating at high pressure, gener
al business is prosperous and there
Is a scarcity of labor everywhere.
Two acts providing safety for rail
way employes and proper inspection
of appliances have been passed.
Tho Federnl Mining Bureau, ror
reducing the dangers -to- workmen!
haB been- established -
A children's bureau, to minimize
Infant mortality, and reduce child
employment in factories, has been
Pensions for Union veterans or the
War of the Rebellion have ibeen
broadened and Increased.
White slavery has been outlawed
Our trade with foreign nations has
been enormously Increased, particu
larly In Iron and steel manufactures.
Congress has made the contract
between railroads and their employ
es more favorable to the latter.
Shippers by rail and patrons of ex
press, telegraph and telephone com
panies are assured just rates by rea
son of additional authority conferred
upon the Inter-State Commerce Com
mission. Tho eieht-hour law on Government
work has been extended to Include
Practice In the federal courts has
been simplified to the interest of all
litigants, which will relievo partlcu
arly the poor suitor.
Postal savings banks have been es
tablished to the great convenience of
persons who formerly hoarded their
Provision has been made for the
parcels post, which will begin opera

These nro nnioiic tlio achievements
of three years of Taft. Xo other ad
ministration within tho same brief
limit has accomplished so many sub
stantial uencilts to tho people. Why
mako a change, Involving widespread
upheaval or business, when .ever'
physical and material condition is
At a Republican meeting held
Tuesday evening In Harrlsburg,
Governor J. K. Tener devoted con
siderable attention to tho practical
accomplishments of tho Taft admin
istration. His address was tho key
note of the rally. Governor Tener
called attention to tho fact that
President Taft came Into office fac
ing a panic in the country and a
governmental deficit of ?C7,000,000.
To-day there Is countrywide prosper
ity and no deficit. Ho has mado tho
Postofllco Department, for tho first
time, self-supporting. He has
brought business people to an under
standing of what tho law requires
and tho knowledgo that they must
llvo up to thoso requirements.
"And I am glad to say that Penn
sylvania has done equally well under
Republican administration," contin
ued Governor Toner. "Right hero
In Harrlsburg wo have given you tho
things you want In tho way of park
cxtonslon and have made your city
the hub of a great road system. Aro
you going to turn Ropublcans out of
office for giving you the things you
want? I know you are not, If you
you only pauso to think about it.
And that Is tho thought I would
leavo with you think, think, think."
Taft Will Ho Re-elected.
An honest estimate of the candi
dates forces tho conviction that Pros
Ident Taft Is tho man for the people
to .elect this year. He represents in
tegrlty, courage, Juatlco and Teal
progress, and Is In complete 'bar
nidny with the new era of prosperity
thatsls now setting In for all the
land. If the people of the United
States give this subject the attention
It deserves. President Taft will be
re-elected by an overwhelming ma
jority, and his success will mean re
newed prosperity and glory for this
Republic. Scranton Truth.
Swing for Tnffc is Increasing, Says
ttva. - uus. ... ,.
Republican national headquarters
wero more busy Wednesday than any
time since the campaign opened and
Chairman Hilles conferred with par
ty leaders from various sections. He
said that he was more than pleased
with recent developments, and that
there was little doubt that the swing
toward President Taft was lncreas
lng as the days went by.
Tho chairman's chief caller was
United States Senator Robert Gam
ble of South Dakota, who reported
that the electoral situation in that
state was being cleared up. The
Roosevelt electors would bo removed
from tho Republican column, he
said, and at a convention to be held
September 19, Taft men would be
designated In their places.
Hull Mooscrs Disturbed.
The Bull Moose is reported to bo
greatly disturbed over the "baiting"
he has been getting In California by
J. M. Harlan and J. Adam Bede,
known as the "Taft truth tellers,"
who have been following tho Colonel
from place to place and showing up
somo of his statements In a manner
not at all creditable to him. A dls
patch from Los Angeles says this
has been getting on the Colonel's
nervo to such an extent that ho
scolds and rants about it to his as
sociates when tho "dear people" are
not within hearing. Tho thing which
troubles him most Is that Harlan and
Bedo aro drawing as big crowds as
Ohio and Kentucky Im Line.
National Chairman Hilles has re
ceived reliable reports from Ohio and
Kentucky that tho sentiment of the
voters is rapidly turning to Taft. It
is said that Roosevelt's high-handed
expulsion of all tho southern colored
delegates from the Bull Mooso con'
ventlon at Chicago will cost him
ELECTED ASSESSORS TO SERVE
Last fall there was some excite
in out over tho election of men to fill
the office of assessor, becauso of tho
fact that this office was not Included
In tho schedule of tho constitutional
amendments. Various opinions were
given out and It was decided that
tho old assessors would continue to
servo In that capacity. Tho newly
elected assessors were therefore left
out In tho cold, so to speak, and
thoso whose terms expired In 191
wero notified that they could hold
over until 1913. Now, by a decision
of tho Superior Court, tho men who
wero elected last fan to nil that or
lice aro entitled by law, to hold It

SOMETHING ELSE TO TRY OUR
ewsnaper Editors Evidently Have
Not Enough to Do Outside of
Pleasing tho Public.
Washington. Sept. 19. Postmast
er General Hitchcock to-day Issued
Instructions for carrying into effect
the new newspaper and periodical
law, Hrst returns under which must
be mado by October 1.
Tho law requires that publishers
shall file on the first days of April
and October of each year, both with
the postmaster general and with the
local postmaster, under penalty of
denial of the use of the malls, a
sworn statement of the names and
addresses of tho owner, publisher,
editor, managing editor, and busi
ness manager, of their newspapers
and periodicals. Religious, frater
nal, temperance and scientific pub
lications are exempt. For a corpor
ation, tho names of tho holders of
more than one per cent, of the stock,
bonds, or other securities, must be
given, and, In the case of dally news
papers, a statement of the average
aid circulation for the preceding six
months Is required.
All editorial or other reading mat
ter appearing In a newspaper or
magazine for the publication of
which pay is accepted or promised,
must be marked "Advertisement"
under a fine of not less than $50 or
moro than $500.
Although this law was not favor
ed by the postofllco department,"
said Postmaster General Hitchcock,
'.It will be administered faithfully
and impartially. In framing the act
congress doubtless had in mind the
leading daily nowspapers, out It will
afreet also nearly 18,000 weeklies
Many of these publications are hav
ing a hard struggle for existence

"In my Judgment, and I so ex
pressed It to the congress, the pro-
Islon will be harmful, as It will re
quire the continuous use of valuable
spaco in the publications and, at the
same time, be resented as a censor-
hip of the press. One of the great
est difficulties now encountered in
the enforcement of laws relating to
tho second-class mall privilege, Is
that the postofflce department Is
compelled by law to make Inquiry
into so many aspects of tho private
business of the publishers. This
gives rise to tho complaint Ill-
rounded in my Judgment that tho
government Interferes needlessly
with the privileges of the press. My
udgment Is that It should be the
constant aim, not only of the con
gress, ,but of tho postofflce depart
ment, to lessen the necessity for
supervision of the public press In the

ORIGINAL CLEVIS OF THE
on Display in S. T. Ham's Harness
Store Was Connecting Link Be
tween I'.iigiuo and Tender Is a
Tho original clevis taken from tho
"Stourbrigde Lion," tho first loco
motive to run upon rails In Ameri
ca, tho Initial trip having been mado
In Honesdale, August 8, 1829, Is on
display In Councilman S. T. Ham's
window. It has been in Mr. Ham's
cousin's possession for a number of
years, having been taken from tho
Stourbridge Lion about 70 years ago.
nr. nam received the following
letter from Thomas F. Ham, of tho
law firm of Ham & Ham. Wauseon.
This Is the connecting link or
clevis between tho Stourbridge Lion
engine and tho tender. This clevis,
as wo learned from father, was tho
one he took from the engine by sug
gestion from his foreman, while
working for tho Delaware and Hud
son Canal company. I cannot glvo
tho date, but I know from what fath
er said it was before I was born and
I am GO years old. It was used on
the farm for many purposes up to
tho time rather sold his farm In
1873, when the writer who was then
present, took It from a pair of bob
sleighs and brought It home from
Ohio, where It has remained In my
possession ever since. I give It to
you for your personal disposal. You
win noto that It is not a common
pieco of metal and also notice the
"THOS. F. HAM."
Mr. Ham prizes the clevis verv
highly. It is looked upon by tho
public with much curiosity and Is a
valuable relic of tho first locomotive.
After keeping It in his possession for
some time he will probably send tho
clevis to the Smithsonian Institute,
Washington, D. C, where the Stour
bridge Lion Is on display.
ihe clevis is possibly the last niece
belonging to the historic engine in
this section of the country. A rep
resentative of the government went
through Honesdale and other towns
a few years ago and collected all the
available loose pieces that persons
had taken from the old locomotive,
when It stood as scrap In Honesdale.
The boiler was shipped to Washing
ton and tne loose pieces placed In
their proper location on the old en
gine. Missing parts were made and
to-day tho people of tho land vleTC
tho Stourbridge Lion almost as It ap
peared wnen it made Its initial trip
In Honesdale 83 years ago.
