JS THIS PROGRESSIVE JOURNAL
ISM? We print elsewhero a few extracts
culled from the editorial columns of
'the Wayne Independent of Wednes
day, November 13th. Each extract
is from a separate editorial, and all
are simply a sample of tho abuse
with which the columns of one post
election copy of the Independent
The American people aro Inclined
to forgive and forget strong expres
sions used by a partisan journal in
the heat and excitement of a politi
cal campaign. But to continue a
programme of abuse and villiflcatlon
after tho people have settled the is
sues of a presidential contest by'
their ballots, is something hereto
fore unheard of in reputable journal
ism. There were C59 voters of
Wayne county who believed in the
Republican party and its policies,
and in tho administration of Presi
dent Taft, and who by their ballots
at the lato election, expressed a de
sire for the continuance of that ad
ministration. How do these Wayne
county voters relish being told by
the Independent that along with
other Republican voters they cast
their ballots "through the lowest
and meanest of all human passions,"
that "so far as being truthful, that
never was and is not expected of
them," that they are members of
"one of the most corrupt and mali
gnant dynasties that ever cursed a
people," that by voting as they did
" they confess to a baseness of char
acter that places them upon a level
with the political bosses and graft
ers," that they are partlccps criminis
with thieves, robbers, grafters,
bosses, villians, tyrants, liars and
other undesirable citizens too num
erous to mention?
Doubtless the Independent feels
as did the ass in the fable, that it
is quite safe to kick a dead Hon. But
our kicking contemporary should
have a care. This lion may not be
as dead as he seems to the Inde
pendent to be. Six hundred and
fifty-nine intelligent and, determin
ed citizens of Wayne county, resent
ing such malignant and purposeless
abuse as has been heaped upon them
by tho Independent, may turn out,
much to tho dismay of that aggres
sive journal, to be a very live prop
osition. JOURNALISTIC CONSISTENCY.
The Washington party candidate
for congress in this congressional
district was Hon. W. D. B. Ainey of
Montrose. Inasmuch as the Inde
pendent was an olllcial organ of the
Washington party in tho lato cam
paign, and Its editor was the high
chief tan of that party in wayno
county, it might have been reason
ably supposed that the Independent
would advocate tho election of its
party's candidate for congress, or at
least refrain from urging editorially,
tho candidacy of his opponent. As a
matter of fact the Independent's edi
torial columns were used to further
tho candidacy of Hon. Joel G. Hill,
tho Democratic candidate. And
while tho Independent's advocacy of
his cause does not seem to havo re
sulted in any great rush of voters
to Mr. Hill's standard, it must have
occasioned some Inquiry among the
simon pure Washlngtonians as to
tho why and wherefore of tho Inde
pendent's attitude. Mr. Hill was a
worthy Democratic candidate. Noth
ing that could bo said by tho Inde
pendent in his fa'or as a Democrat,
as a man of high character, as a
worthy representative of this dis
trict, would bo an exaggeration. But
what tho curious aro wondering
about is why so rabid a Washington
Ian aB the Independent should have
abandoned its own party's candidate,
a man of no less Integrity and ability
than Mr. Hill, In order to advocate
tho election of tho candidate of a
party so bitterly denounced by Col.
Roosevelt during tho late campaign.
W. W. WOOD
Tho New York Sun has tho fol
lowing: " The victory," said Colonel Roose
velt, just before election, "Is already
won." Ho must havo meant victory
over Taft and tho non-seceding Re
publicans. He must nave meant the
triumph that brought defeat kind
perhaps lssolution to tho party
which has honored him ever since he
first sought its favors. This 1b vic
tory, no doubt, In Col. Roosevelt's
habitually personal way of looking
at things. No other victory has he
won this year.
But the man whom Colonel Roose
velt has thus punished for declining
to invito young Mr. Garfield to tho
Cabinet mahogany and for rightly
dismissing the insubordinate Glf
ford Plnohot from a minor office has
also won a victory of his own. Ho
has blocked the third term. He bas
saved the life of the wise custom
which must ever be the main safe
guard against the success of tho rev
olutionary enterprises of popular ad
venturers. Ho has maintained the
causo of constitutional government
and has held steadily and courage
ously, in the face of almost hopeless
conditions, to tho great principles
which must prevail while tho Gov
ernment we have endures.
We venture the opinion this morn
ing that President Taft's victory is
much the greater of the two. Honor
to him in his honorable defeat!
Gratitude to him for this service to
tho country he has in all other re
spects served so well!

cast their ballots for revenge; they
confess to a baseness of character
that places them upon a level with
tho political bosses and grafters.

URGES FARMERS TO COMBINE

About Applo Wn.sto In Wayne
Loss in Freight Hatca.
Considerable spaco was given in
Monday's Tribune-Republican of tho
Applo Wasto in Wnyno County,
which wo think will bo read with In
terest by our readers. It Is given
herewith In part:
Wnyno county, located In tho heart
of tho richest applo growing region in
tho country, according to United
States agricultural reports, has a rec
ord applo crop this Fall, and no
market for tho yield, becauso of the
alleged failure of the farmers thero
to organlzo for common business ad
vantages. Tho crop, it Is said, Is
largo enough to supply Scranton, and
another city of Its size, with apples
for thp Winter, but few Wayne coun
ty apples will bo sold here on ac
count of tho absenco of a produco ex
chango to place Wayne's crop on the
A Lackawanna avenue wholesaler
declared yesterday that ho in com
mon with other avenue produco deal
ers, Is now buying his apples from
tho orchards of New York state and
tho Cumberland valley, because
Wayno county apple growers are
blind to their best Interests. This
wholesaler declared that ho visited
Wayno county farms and offered to
buy outright tho crop of farmer af
ter farmer at fifty cents a bushel,
and pick and barrel tho apples at his
own cost, but the farmers declined
to sell for only ono reason.' "Farm
er Bill Jones" refused to sell becauso
ho seemed to think that his neigh
bor, "Smith," would get fifty-five
cents for his bushel, and he would
not havo It said that his apples were
not as good and as valuable as his
Whore tho consumer will feel tho
effect of tho Wayne situation was
also pointed out by this merchant.
Tho freight tariff on apples shipped
into this city from tho Cumberland
valley, from tho towns of Winchester
and Chambersburg, is something like
fifteen cents a hundred weight. The
tariff on apples from Honesdale to
Scranton Is eight cents tho hundred
weight. This Is a difference of seven
cents in tho hundred pounds, and
somebody must pay the seven cents
difference. The payee will likely be
the city housekeeper.
Tho cost to the consumer Is only
one factor in tho alleged bad busi
ness methods of not only the Wayne
county farmer, but farmers in this
and all other counties in this part of
the state. During the month of Oc
tober there were nine carloads of
apples shipped into Scranton from
the Cumberland valley and from New
York state by one road alone.
"There," said the wholesaler, "were
nine carloads of produce that might
just as well have come from Hones
dale, and besides we would probably
have a better apple to sell at less
cost to the consumer.
Whero the neighboring farmers
are careless to their own Interests,
tho wholesaler claimed, is that they
fail to see the advantage to be gain
ed by working in common for the
interest of all. Unllko other farm
ing communities the farmers of
Wayno county and of Lackawanna
havo never organized a produce ex
change. Such a house is necessary,
it was pointed out, if tho farmer
expects to get his crops placed on
the market. A produco exchange
and a live secretary or manager In
charge, would ascertain the extent of
the crop of each farm and then
would find a market for the crop,
whether It be apples, cabbage or po
tatoes. Such an exchange has been
maintained in Virginia and is
known as tho Eastern Shore Pro
duco Exchange. It Is at only, Vir
ginia. Ninety per cent, of the farm
ers aro members, and all their crops
are sold through the exchange. It
has succeeded to a degree that ad
mits of a secretary at ?5,000 a year
While Wayne county apple grow
ers havo been cited specifically, the
same criticism was directed against
tho Lackawanna county farm own
ers, and, in fact, all other counties
in this region. Scranton Is a market
for produce from all parts of the
country, except right here at home,
it was pointed out. Onions that are
sold in tho city aro shipped hero all
the way from Texas; more -onions
come from New Jersey. Onions aro
delivered to Scranton wholesalers In
quantity of twenty-flvo carloads the
month. That was the quantity re
ceived in this city from Texas and
New Jersey in October and this ship
ment arrived by only one of tho sev
Potatoes that might be shipped
Into the city from tho surrounding
country aro received now from New
York state. During tho month of
October thero were 128 carloads of
potatoes received by Lackawanna
avenuo wholesalers. Tho railroad
that shipped those 128 cars received
something like ten cents a hundred
weight for all potatoes carried from
the country around Windsor, N. Y.
Thero was not a carload of potatoes
shipped from tho country towns
north of Scranton or from Wayno
county, although tho freight rato on
potatoes from Honesdale to Scrtfh
ton was said to bo about ilvo cents.
according "to tho T.-R. informant.
Tho difference between tho shipping
cost from Honcsdalo and Windsor,
N. Y., must bo met by tho consumer,
and for every 100 weight of pota
toes the consumer pays live cents ex

Tho Wayne county teachers are
again on duty fresh from institute
week. No doubt many, perhaps all,
brought back bags well filled with
butternuts. Will they give their pu

will they deal them out moderately
and furnish bags to hold them?
Many of tho boys and girls looking
up to them for instruction have no
bags to hold the nuts and these
must be supplied with such recep
tacles. Will some of theso teachers
tie the mouth of that nut bag with a
hard knot and set it aside never to

"cramming" is another thing. There
