OUR EFFORTS APPRECIATED
Since the publication of The Citi
zen's illustrated boom number the
managers of this paper have receiv
ed Innumerable compliments upon
last Friday's edition. Some, who
were not subscribers, after reading
their neighbor's Citizen, came to this
offlce and subscribed for The Citizen.
Thank you, gentlemen.
With a view of placing further re
strictions around automobilists who,
either through carelessness or igno
rance, are a menace on the highways
of the State, Commissioner Lippin
cott, of New Jersey, has announced
that in future drivers applying for
licenses will have to pass a rigid ex
amination before being given permis
sion to operate cars. The commis
sioner's data on accidents through
out the State lead him to believe
that much of the loss of life and
most of the injuries sustained by per
sons who use cars have been caused
by inexperience and irresponsibility.
Up to the present tme, the meth
ods in force for licensing drivers have
been very lax. Examinations to de
termine the fitness of an applicant
Jiave been merely perfunctory, if not
downright farcial. The commission
er proposes to change all this, and
hereafter examinations will be held
under the supervision of experienced
men, and character as well as me
chanical ability will enter into the
question as to whether a man is con
sidered competent to receive a li
cense. This is a move in the right direc
tion. Other States are doing the
same thing, and there is no reason
why New Jersey, which is becoming
more popular each year as a ren
dezvous for automobiles, should not
be right In the van or progress in

parade. Each boy acted as an aide-de-camp
to an automobile and did
other patrol duty. The Scouts, like
on all other former occasions, ren
dered line service. The success of
the parade depended largely upon
them and their genial Scout Master,
E. G. Jenkins. Honesdale could not
get along without its troop of Boy
Scouts, which is composed of a num
ber of the best young men in the
town. The discipline received is in
valuable to young men. Their duty
and service counts for all that is
good and benflcial to mankind.
A word for the town council of
the borough of Honesdale. To these
gentlemen, whoso pictures are found
in to-day's Citizen, belongs the credit
of vacating lower Main street and
turning over gratis that part of the
borough that now constitutes the
site of the new Gurney Electric Ele
vator Company. If they had dis
agreed it is doubtful that the Gur
ney plant would have been located
in the borough of Honesdale. Much
praise is therefore given to the towu
council of the borough of Honesdale.

In a certain factory a number of
employees were found to be suffer
ing from tuberculosis. The homes
of the men were in good condition.
The disease evidently did not origin
ate there. An expert was asked to
solve the problem. 'He visited the
factory. This -was what he found
careless spitting, few cuspidors, no
disinfecting of cuspidors, the com
mon drinking cup, dust In the air,
closed windows, no hot water for
washing, a trough which was filled
with water from which all the men
washed, no recreation room. Tho men
jvere obliged to eat beside their ma
chines. Is it a surprise that tuberculosis
thrived her6? Matters were remedied
by moving to another building, and
latest reports show a healthy force.
It was not necessary to move, how
ever. The introduction of drinking
fountains, more cuspidors, properly
cleaned and disinfected; more fresh
air, hot as well as cold water, wash
basins, a recreation room, together
with the fumigation of lockers and
thorough scrubbihg of the floors
would have solved the problem.
Employers and employees should
insist upon good working conditions.

Many employers have their employ

the rural fences; tho roadside poles;
and the rocks and trees thus made
unsightly to the gaze of the wayfar
ers. Something may be granted to
the Chicago Judge who maintained
that the State cannot interfere with
property rights on merely esthetic
grounds; yet all duo allowances
made, and without any desire to
strangulate business or deprive the
public of useful information, it must
bo admitted that advertisements tag
ged in woodland spots or thrust ob
trusively into view by held and
hedgerow, are a needless offense
from which the public has the right
to be protected.
From a business viewpoint, the
benefits are inconsiderable, and there
being plenty of other channels open
to the advertiser, it follows there is
no more justification for assaulting
the eye than there would be storm
ing the ear by deafening din. A dis
tinction obtains between politely ask
ing attention, and vulgarly compell
ing it. The average citizen has the
privilege of saying whether he pre
fers scenery kept in its picturesque
simplicity, or at least whether it
shall be preserved from the ugly and
incongruous advertisements which
violate good taste.

DOX'T MAR THE BEAUTIES
Big lettered signs that deface the
landscape are a public nuisance. Men
should not be allowed to mar and de
stroy the beauties of nature in order
to call attention to some articles they
nave for sale. It Is forbidden by law
in some places and a bill at Harris-
burg now proposes that it shall bo
forbidden In Pennsylvania.
A State tax Is proposed on all bill
board and advertising signs. The tax
applies solely to signs which have no
connection witn tne business con
ducted on the premises. A signifi
cant feature of tho proposed Act con
sists in tho prohibition of posting ad
vertisements on public property,
trees or poles along the highways,
The bill generally follows the order
adopted during recent years in other
countries and in certain localities of
our own. Boston, Chicago and St
Louis, though the provisions have by
no means been enforced to the strict
letter of the law.
The measure is responsive to the
widespread attention provoked by
the gross excesses into which this
form of advertising has been carried
As Judge Woodson, of Missouri, re
marked anent tho Supreme Court's
sustaining tho St. Louis billboard or
dinance "advertising is a legitimate
and honorable business if honorably
and legitimately conducted, but
every other featuro and incident
thereto have evil tendencies and
should for that reason be strictly ro-
gulated and controlled."
