Edwnrd A. Pcnnimnn Receives Con
gratulations at His Beautiful
OOD morning, Mr. Penniman!
So the Honesdale National
Bank and the celebrated af
fair of the Alamo were not
all there was to the year
1836, after all. Something happen
ed in Cleveland, Ohio, on April 4,
1836. That little happening, by the
way, was tho birth of Edward A.
Penniman. His father, Francis B.
Penniman, removed from the "Buck
eye" State to Binghamton, N. Y.,
and in 1844 he removed from the
city where Lester Boots were made
E. A. PENNIMAN.
to Honesdale. His father began
publishing a local newspaper in
Honesdale. He called it The Hones
dale Democrat, and it was the organ
of the Whig party. The first number
was published on September 17 of
that year. When Edward became
Old enough to vote he acquired a half
Interest in the Democrat, in which
office he had learned his trade. One
year later he became Bole proprietor.
Mr. Penniman remained as a proprie
tor of the paper that was started in
1844, since 1870 as co-partner with
the late Hon. Henry Wilson, until
Sept. 24, 1908, when he sold out his
Interest and retired to spend tho
remainder of his days in his beauti
ful home in the upper part of
One of the valued possessions of
Mr. ' Penniman are tho bound vol
umes of the paper that was started in
Honesdale in 1844 from the first
number that was published to the
time of his retirement. JHe has them
In a room that is specially construct
ed for them; they are nicely and
plainly labeled, and the volumes
make a priceless collection of local
history.. Provision should be made
at county expense for the preserva
tion of the volumes in a fire-proof
But these are only a part of the
literary treasures that Mr. Penniman
has In his library. He has taken
special pains to gather every scrap
of history pertaining to the people
from Wayne County who served
their country in the Civil war, and
he has taken great pains also to gath
er and classify many other things of
interest to the people of this county,
To-day is Edward A. Penniman's
birthday, and he is spending it at
homo by receiving the congratula
tions of his fellow-townsmen. Every
day he comes down from his home
to the newspaper offices, where ho is
always a welcome visitor. We hope
to greet him and shake his hand up
to at least April 4, 1936.

ON ASSAULT AND BATTERY
CHARGE, ALSO TO KILL.
Hearing Commenced AVcdnesday Af
ternoon, Continued Until This
Morning Many AA'ltnesscs Called
Mcbs Held For Court.
Peter Polt, who pled not guilty to
a charge of assault and battery on
the person of Leonard Mebs, before
'Squire R. A. Smith on Tuesday and
who was held under $500 ball, al
though already held under a sheriff's
capias, started to avenge his wrongs
on Wednesday when he had Leonard
Mebs arrested and charged him with
assault and battery with attempt to
kill on Saturday night. The hearing
was begun yesterday before 'Squire
R. A. Smith and Polt was allowed to
testify. He stated that on Saturday
night between eleven and twelve
o'clock ho left the Commercial Hotel
and started home. Some distance
down tho street he came up with a
bunch of follows one of whom was
Mebs. Ho said Mebs started toward
him, calling him a vilo. name and at
the same time asking his companion
for his gun to shoot him. Polt then
asserts that Mebs struck him and he
struck back. He said that he had a
stone ring on his finger and that
probably made the cut on Mebs' nose.
No witnesses were called and Justice
Smith continued the hearing until 11
o'clock this morning when it was
This morning when the evidence
was resumed, Polt's attorney, C. P.
Searle, called three witnesses, who
corroborated the story already told
by Polt. They were with him Satur
C. A. Garratt defended Mebs and
produced many witnessos all of
whom denied that a blow was struck.
Mebs said that he and five others
were going up the street when they
met Polt and his crowd. Polt came
up to him and gave him a shove with
his elbow. This was followed by a
clinch, but no blows were struck.
Mebs said that Polt then reached in
to his pocket and the next thing he
knew he had been cut and he cried
out for help.
Toward the end of the hearing the
sister of Mebs was called as a witness
and some very sensational evidence
was given. She said that she was
afraid of her life and that Polt had
threatened to kill her if she did not
go with him. She denied that she
had told Polt that her brother was
laying for him with a gun. Polt was
then recalled and said that Miss Mebs
had told him that her brother was
going to kill him. Other evidence of

tend to All Small Towns in That
' The Progressive Telephone Com
pany of Northern Wayne county
gave a dinner Wednesday night at
Lake Como to Its stockholders and
officers, which consisted of about
twenty-five of northern Wayne's
leading citizens. The dinner was
held In the Healy Hotel.

Healoy, of Lako Como; Frank - W.
Stahlhebor and Fred A. Tiffany, of
Poyntelle, and others spoke of the
prospects of becoming the. beautiful
highlands of northern AVayne coun
In the after dinner remark's it was
very evident that the citizens or
northern Wayne county are awaken
ing to the great possibilities of de
veloping their region with regard to
summer business. The spirit shown
was that they should develop their
present telephone system and assist
the various struggling small rural
companies to rebuild and place their
lines on a strong commercial basis.
Tho board of directors of the Pro
gressive Telephone company met
yesterday afternoon for the purpose
of planning to extend the scope of
their territory to take in the smaller
towns in that locality that are clam
mering for service. Through the
efforts of these men an organization
was effected and the necessary stock
sold and the following towns have
been opened up In that vicinity: Or
son, Poyntelle, Lakewood, Lake
Como, Preston Park, South Preston,
Rock Lake, Starlight and Equlnunk.
It is the intention of the men en
gaged In the work to develope that
region as a summer resort. With its
beautiful mountains and lakes it
would make one of the most beauti
ful summer resorts in the east, and
they realize that the making of bet
ter telephone facilities is the first im
portant step in that direction.
