HONESDALE'S FREE LIBRARY.
Wo all believe In public libraries.
We frequently discuss the library we
are to get "bye and bye." We do not
find that it Is helping the boys and
girls who are growing up In our town
now. Will the next generation need
it more than this? Will the children
of the next generation be dearer to
us than the boys and girls that now
cheer our firesides? Will they use
a library better because their par
ents have not had such privileges?
We all want a library, for. our
selves, for our neighbors, for the
good name of our village. Why not
get it now and be getting the good
out of it?'
It is only a question of method.
The library when built should
benefit all tho people, and therefore
it should be built by all the people.
Give us all a chance to help, and then
the library will belong to all of us.
Honesdale and the immediate vi
cinity has been divided Into districts
and solcitors have been appointed to
make a house to house canvass for
tho .purpose of securing a free will
contribution for the benefit of the
school library. This is an exception
ally worthy cause and should be giv
en the hearty support of the com
munity at large. Bo liberal. We
should all work In the interest of
this institution. Co-operation is
A public library Is tho flower of
the modern forms of co-operation,
which secures for the individual lux
uries which he could not afford oth
erwise. Instead of buying so many books
and magazines which wear out on the
shelves after one reading, let us
"pool our issues" and put the multi
tude of small sums in one fund, buy
the best at tho lowest prices, and
then use the volumes so brought for
the good of all. We need spend no
more money each year for literature,
but wo need to save the wastage due
to unused books, foolish purchases,
book agents, commissions, and need
less profits and we can have a pub
lic library without other cost.
A good public library In this town
will help our neighboring farmers as
well as our townspeople. They can
not support public libraries in their
small communities. Their small
school libraries give tho children a
taste for reading, but give them
nothing to giatify that taste when
they leave school. Let us join our
forces for mutual advantage and get
a better library and a wider commun
ity of interests. Again we say, be
THE INCOME TAX NOW POSSIBLE
Tho adherence of Wyoming, unex
pectedly in advance of that of either
New Jersey or New Mexico, makes
the income tax amendment a part of
tho Federal Constitution. Congress
at last has tho constitutional power
to lay a tax upon incomes, from
whatever source derived, without ap
portionment among tho States.
The exercise of this power, Is with
Congress which submitted the resol
ution to tho States on tho general
theory that It was a power to be used
in an emergency, as a last resort, and
not in tho ordinary business of pro
viding ways and moans.
How far tho new Democratic dis
pensation will depart from this origi
nal attitude toward tho Income tax
Idea, how strong will be the effort
to make it the Instrument of odious
class discrimination and Inequality
for socialistic or near socialistic pur
eposes wholly apart from the question
of revenue, now remains to bo seen.

A "puro shoo" bill is before the
legislature at Harrlsburg, fathered
by Representative Charles J. Hom
mlnger of Somerset county. Tho
Somerset statesman declares that
the people ought to have exact
knowledge of tho kind of stuff their
shoes are made of. Ho proposes to
have a tag placed on every ehoe re
citing the Ingredients of which it is
composed. Jfi there are leather

It Is all right to guaranteo to the
people purity In all the goods they
purchase, but this thing of attaching
to every article of manufacture a
genealogy, an affidavit and a certifi
cate of character is going to add to
the complications and tho high cost
of living. Think of a shoe carrying
forward through all the intricacies
of manufacture a daily increasing
series of labels and tags certifying
to the character of tho materials and
to tho honesty of tho numberless
people who have worked thereon.
And think how tho whole process
would be simplified by an adult dose
of common honesty to begin with in
all of the people who made the shoe.
It Is to bo doubted whether the world
Is to be made good by investigation,
affidavit and exposure after all.

TISING. Every merchant in Wayno county
should write to Hon. H. C. Jackson,

eral Assembly, also to Senator Har
vey Huffman of the Senate of this

the Pennsylvania legislature, Har

DIRECT VOTE BILL PASSED
Rati lies Popular Election Amend
ment to Constitution by Over
Whelming Majority Big: Clinngo
Harrlsburg, Feb. 4. By a vote of
193 to 3 the lower house of tho
Pennsylvania general assembly rati
fied the popular election amendment
to tho United States constitution pro
viding that United States senators
shall be elected by direct vote of the
people of the several states.
Tho decision of tho House follow
ed a debate of two hours, In which
J. Baldwin, of Delaware, made a
number of speeches against the
amendment. E. E. Jones, of Susque
hanna, the author of the amendment,
in an address to the house said that
as a candidate on tho Republican
and Democratic tickets in his district
and as a member of the state grange
ho felt in duty bound to present the
resolution to the house.
In his talk Mr. Jones replied to
an argument of Mr. Baildwin to the
effect that a constitutional provision
good enough for 124 years ago was
good enough now, and said that un
der tho present system of electing
United States senators the evils of
bossism ihavo arisen. An additional
reason offered by Mr. Jones for the
passage of tho amendment is that the
election of United States senators by
direct vote would divorce tho sena
torial issue from the candidacy of
Stand Solidly for Resolution.
All the Northeastern members
voted for the resolution. The six
Lackawanna members, two Bradford,
one Susquehanna, one Wyoming, one
Wayne and eight Luzerne members
standing solidly for the bill. Tho
104th vote was cast by John F. Man
nlon, Democrat, of the Fifth Lacka
wanna district. The house gave
eighty-nine votes more than a ma
jority. The overwhelming decision of the
house this year In favor of tho di
rect vote resolution is all the more
significant when It is known that in
the session of 1911, two years ago,
it was not possible to get tho reso
lution out of committee and bring it
to a voice.
Representative John F. Mannion's
bill appropriating $160,000 to the
state bureau of mines for the pur
pose of extinguishing the Carbondaile
mine fire was Introduced in tho house
of representatives. Tho bill pro
vides that before any of the appro
priation shall be expended by the
chief of the bureau of mines the
county of Lackawanna shall "obli
gate itself to this commonwealth in

as sha'll be approved by the attorney
general of the commonwealth, that
if the sum appropriated by this act
shall be Insufficient for the payment
of such expenditures said county will
pay such additional amounts as shall
County Must Givo Bond.
The act would give the chief of the
bureau of mines power to condemn
land, to destroy, appropriate or uso
such material as necessary to carry
out the provisions of the act, and the
attorney general is authorized to sue
for and recover from the property
saved from loss or damage by reason
of the state's activity, all or as much

Tho local option bill endorsed by
the Anti-Saloon league and provid
ing for units of counties and munici
palities of over 10,000 population
was Introduced in tho house by Mr.
Rockwell, Tioga. An election is to
bo held on petition of a per cent, of
tho voters according to the bill.

act was presented by Mr. Matt, Bed
ford. It limits expenses of candi

had received the petition of Thomas
D. Shea, Wllkes-Barre, asking for tho
Impeachment of Judge Henry A.
Fuller, of the Luzerne county courts,
and referred it to the judiciary gen
oral committee. Allegations that
Judge Fuller had failed to decide
cases and committed various acts In
offlco which the petitioner deems Im
proper were made by Mr. Shea.

One of these goes to Philadelphia

fourth Is secured by a redlvision of
