Much is said and done In favor of
foreign missions which is all right,
but some times there is missionary
work very near our door as the fol
lowing pitiful case, which has re

Frank H. Elsele, superintendent of
the Honesdale Consolidated Light,
Heat and Power company, is endeav
oring to organize a branch of the
United Sportsmen of Pennsylvania
in Wayne county. He has approach
ed the proposition to several
Honesdale and Wayne county sports
men and has met with great en
couragement. The members resolve
to obey the fish, game and forestry
laws of the Commonwealth of Penn
sylvania and to assist in their en
forcement. To give active aid in the
perpetuation and increase of the fish
and game in Pennsylvania. To help
In the preservation of tho purity of
the waters of tho Commonwealth and
to encourage preservation and in
crease of the forest areas and to be
of asslstanco to fellow sportsmen.
The purpose and object of the
association is stated in the foregoing
paragraph and we see no reason why
Mr. Eisele could not organize a
strong association here. The object
is a worthy one and should be given
the undivided support of every
sportsman in the county. Scranton
has an enthusiastic organization as
should Wayne county.
An unusually strong vaudeville

His playing on tho saxophone seems
ro De appreciated mostly. Ho is an

to greater and more persistent efforts,
noV only to retrlve our lost fortunes
but to place our town upon a higher
industrial plane than it held at any
time. "And Honesdale used its own
dead self as stepping stones to higher
The pioneers of our early industries
merit tho highest pralso for their ln
domlnable courage and persistency
under difficulties, their Indefatigable
and untiring efforts to wrest success
from most unfavorable conditions and
their determination to place Hones
dale upon tho map.
There are names so closely inter
woven with this Industrial struggle
that If mentioned here, would evoke
your loud applause, but tho list would
be too long to name them all, and wo
could not discriminate by mentioning
any number less than the whole. In
tho past how well they have succeed
ed, this celebration is the crowning
and conclusivo proof.
Creative and constructive genius
havo from time to time through all
the ages manifested itself in works
more or less enduring, symbols of the
ago in which they wero produced and
the conditions which made them pos
sible. The pyramids and obelisks of
Egypt display in their conception and
construction a knowledge of artistic
and mechaical skill which Is the mar-
vel of all succeeding ages, but no ben
efit has accrued to humanity by rea
son of their existance, excepting to
arouso our curiosity or possibly our
admiration. To the present age, they
convey little meaning and touches no
chord of human sympathy.
The Coliseum and Amphitheatres of
Ancient Rome are marvels of archi
tectural beauty and construction but
they wero debased to the use of glad
iatorial combats to furnish a holiday
to the aristocracy of Ancient Rome,
and to use as a place for Christian
martyrdom, but the race was not
mado better or happier by their exist
ance. Genius has been exhausted in tho
construction and erection of monu
ments to perpetuate the ambitious
and victory of petty conquors and
statesmen while the people are under
the pressure of misused power.
And yet, neither the monument in
Trafulgar Square which commerates
the victories of Nelson on the Sea,
nor tho column vendomo to perpetu-
ate the victories of Napoleon on land,
ever fed or clothed a child, but let
such monuments stand through all
time as evidences of the different uses
which may be mado of genius when
used in the different ages of the world
The nineteenth and twentieth cen
turies are not wanting In monuments,
but instead of preserving within their
walls tho dead bones of departed
greatness and antique souveniers of
ages past, you may see there, thon

Btructed machinery in the production

these inmates an equal chance with
tho most fortunate to profit by their
own efforts, and it is to celebrate one
of these modern monuments, the
Gurney Electric Elevator Works that
we are assembled here. Her industries
aro the most valued asset of a town
such as this, they are not only an as
set of the town, but a part of the town,
and that part from Whldh all the
material wealth comes. Honesdale
then welcomes this new and most ex
tensive industry to our town and as
part and parcel of the town and offers
her official greeting to those whose
efforts are the cause of tho good for
tune of having such an improvement
to our wealth and tho wealth of our
However, much we would like to
speak In abstract and in generalities
tho occasion calls for some brief
sketch at least of the monument which
wo are here to celebrate. The Gurney
Electric Elevator Works is not with
out a pedigree, reaching back over
long years of time and several gener
atlons of people. The evolutions, vie
isltudes and changes through which
this institution passed until it has
reached its crowning time now, year
after year, changing Its products as
occasion required, always ready to
adopt itself to tho requirements of its
times, it tolled on, passing in time
from one management to another,
growing and expanding as It passed
down through good reports and ovil
reports, through prosperous times and
times of depression. The names wero
changed to the National Elevator
Works, and finally to the Gurney Elee
trie Elevator Works, its present name;
then quietly, noiselessly, without a
ripple on the surface, under the guld
ance of a Master mind and a Master
hand, the produot of this company
reached perfection and were shipped
to cities remote and far from home.
By and by the plant was found too
small to fill the orders which camo In
and tho management was confronted
with the necessity of a new and larg
er plant. Tho question then present
ed Itself as to the possible location
within the limits of the town and ono
of two things had to occur, the plant
had to have larger quarters or it
should move to other and more invit
ing fields. Then there came forward
an organization which had been vigl-
lent for some tome regarding tho wel
fare of the peoples interests, and
known as "The Greater Honesdalo
Board of Trade." This organization
had adopted as a motto, "Watch
Honesdale Grow," and now tho propo
sltlon of one of our greatest Industries
being compelled to leave Honesdale
for tho reason that a sultablo location
could be found upon which to lo
cate the new and magnificent plant,
which Mr. Gurney wished to erect, re
quired solution promptly or tho Great
er Honesdale Board of Trade should
forever after hold Its peace.
The Greater Honesdale Board of
Trade had now confronting It, a prob
lem which, it properly solved, may
simplify the real work of tho board,
that of a "Greater Honesdale," not by
the equlsltlon of new territory but by
making Honesdale Itself greater, and
In this way solve the question which
was the reason of its exlstanCe. The
Greater Honesdale Board of Trade ac
cepted the challenge and sent word
to Mr. Gurney that It would furnish
the goods, then the most serious ques
tion came up before the Board as to
who should be appointed on tho com
mittee on sites and location, to secure
tho necessary grounds. In looking ov
er the members present Mr. F. W.
Krletner, president of the Board ap
pointed on the committee Mr. Robert
J. Murray and Mr. L. Blumonthal, as
best adapted to do the work, presum
ably on account of the peculiar quali
fications of each.
Mr. Murray had largo experience
throughout Wayne and adjoining coun
ties In locating men who needed agri
cultural machinery, engines and oth
er articles In Mr. Murray's line, and
now he could turn this experience to
good account In locating a site for an
Elevator plant. Mr. L. Blumenthal,
who has long been known as an adept
In tho art of securing all that he went
after, and had a marvelous capacity
of being able to convince men that
their best interests would be served
by doing as Mr. Blumenthal wanted,
a better team could not be found any
where, and so it camo to pafcs that
morning, noon and sometimes late at
night these two men wero seen at al
most any point of the compass cau
tiously, carefully, diligently viewing
the surrounding county around
Honesdale, hoping to find tho desired
site, Mr. Murray always looking for
the locations, Mr. Blumenthal Inquir
ing as to the lowest purchase price.
In this way many options were secur
ed, but for one reason and another
they were not accepted, one available
site was rejected because so many
heirs owned the title. At last, like
all good things, If carefully looked for
could be found at home, and so final
ly the present location was fixed upon
as most tivailable, All the owners
turned over their titles willingly, de
manding In return, only a fair consid
eration, and not one obstaclo was met
in this part of the work, including the
Borough of Honesdalo, which held
the disposition of the street which di
vided the land and became necessary
to the proper use of tho plot; the rest
was easy and hence the new and im
posing factory.
In the bringing about of this great
industry many elements entered, and
only by their co-operation and har
monious working could the plant be
made a possibility.
First: Mr. Gurney, by his marvel
ous ability In the construction of ele
vators, made the product sent out
from his factory so much superior to
all others that the necessity for en
larged quarters became a necessity,
and then there are other Boards of
Trade, as well as The Greater Hones
dale Board of Trade, anxious to se
cure the prize.
Then the question of grounds should
be secured If the factory was to be lo
cated here, and then the financing of
tho enterprise. Fortunate Indeed, for
Honesdale, that by tho thrift economy
and industry of her people, our four
banks are repositories of millions of
dollars, held in trust for them, guard
ed by officers of recognized and con
ceded financial ability.
These banks aro the envy of all
surrounding financial institutions and
thoir officers are always ready to placo
tho peoples' money In any enterprise
where it will not only bring a fair re
turn to the owner but will help to
enrich tho wholo community and ev
ery person therein; and so the financ
ing of the enterprise was at once as
sured by tho subscribing of tho four
banks of all tho issue of bonds, am
ounting to two hundred thousand dol
lars; every element necessary and es
sential to the success of tho enter
prise. And now comes tho crowning
tlmo as a reward for faithful, persist
ent eftort; but now there is much to
bo done, eternal vlgllence is the price
of success, there should bo no relax
ing of efforts, but all should work to
gether not so much for a Greater
Honesdale as to mako Honesdale
