FREDERICK ZWICK FALLS FROM
LADDER; FRACTURES ARM.
AVns EugnRCHl in Painting Roof of
Exhibit Cars AVhen Ladder Slid
nnd Tlirew Him to Ground.
Frederick Zwick, a plumber em
ployed by O. M. Spettlgue, received
an injury to his right arm on Tues
day afternoon, that will render him
unable to do any work for several
weeks, if It does not permanently
affect the arm.
He had been sent by the hard
ware firm of 0. M. Spettlgue to do
some repair work and painting on
the North of Bay Counties Exhibit
Cars which are located on the spur
track of the D. & H. near the city
hall. He had been working on the
roof of the rear car and was getting
down by means of a ladder placed
against the car when the ladder slid
sideways for a distance of about
three feet, and caught up suddenly
on a projection in the roof. When
the ladder started to move Zwick
released his hold and when it stop
ped suddenly he was precipitated
headlong to tho ground. The fall
was only seven or eight feet, but
the man struck his hand first and
the force of the Impact caused the
right arm to break at the joint. The
forearm joint was pushed through
the skin of the arm and it was fear
ed that the cords and tendons were
severed. Several men were stand
ing near, witnessed the accident and
ran to his assistance. Dr. Ely was
called and Zwick was taken to the
doctor s house where it was found
that there had been a compound dis
location. It is thought that
the use of the arm will
be endangered. Mr. Zwick carried
$1000 accident insurance with Bent-
ley Bros, and will receive ?5.00 per
weeic wniie kept from work.
He was taken to the State hosnital

CONTRACTS FOR BRIDGES NOT
COMMISSIONERS MEET FOR PUR
POSE OF AAVARDING CON
TRACTS; OBJECTIONS MADE.
All Bids AV1U Have to bo Mndo Over
nnd Readvertlsed For Objection
Over Fact That Some Bid on Only
One Set of Specifications.
The county commissioners, John
Male, Earl Rockwell and Neville Hol
gato held their regular monthly
meeting Tuesday afternoon and pass
ed on the month's accumulation of
bills. Tho principal business at this
session of the commissioners was to
have been the awarding of contracts
for furnishing materials and labor
to complete abutments, wing walls
and bridges over four creeks in
Wayne county. Several bids were
presented but some only bid on one
set of specifications while other
companies put in bids for both sets,
consequently the men who only had
one set thought that it would not oe
a square deal if the bids were open
ed and passed upon at this meetlng-
ing. The commissioners consider
ed the matter and decided to read
vertlse tho bids for the building of
the four bridges. The bids were not
opened and will be returned.
The following bridges are to he
built: Bridge No. 1, located in Dy-
berry township, leading from Bates'
mill to the public highway known
as the Tanners Falls road. Bids are
wanted for furnishing all materials
and labor for building the bridge
and completing abutments and wing
walls. Bridge No. 2, located in Mt.
Pleasant township, over Johnson
Creek and known as the Bryant
Bridge. Bridge No. 3 located in
Lake township, crossing Middle
Creek at A'arden, this county.
Bridge No. 4, located in Salem town
ship, on Five Mile Creek near Ar
lington. Plans and specifications to
be secured at the Commissioners' of
fice in the court house.

WILL THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH
CHANGE ITS NAME?
THE CITIZEN INTERA1EWS REAr,
A. L. AVIIITTAKER ON THE
Tho Rector of Grace Church
There Is No Likelihood of
A representative of this paper
called upon Rev. A. L. AVhlttaker,
rector of Grace Episcopal church
Tuesday morning for the purpose of
ascertaining Mr. AVhlttaker's opin
ion regarding tho proposed change
in tho name of tho Episcopal
church. We found tho good rector
in a reflective mood, and herewith
present his views concerning a sub
ject that is foremost in the minds of
the members of the Protestant Epis
copal church of America. The rector
"It. In nnt. at. all llkelv that tho
name of tho Church will be chang6d
at the General Convention of the
Church, which meets in New York
City in October. AVhenover tho pro
posal to make tho change had been
brought up in general convention it
had been defeated. Even at tho last
General Convention, when a mild
change was suggested, it failed of
acceptance. It is believed to bo the
feeling of Bishop Talbot that it will
servo no useful purpose to have the
matter brought up in the diocesan
convention, which meets in Reading,
May 21 and 22. There has been no
discussion of it in Grace Episcopal
church of Honesdale.
"If a name could be found which
would not be Incompatible with the
broadest charity toward Christians
of every name and would Indeed
serve as a means of bringing about
Church unity, which would be a real
union of all who call upon the name
of Christ for tho fulfilling of Christ's
mission upon earth and would not
prove to be a cause of disruption or
an insurmountable barrier to a
union of Christendom, I would
heartily approve of it.
"Such a name has not as yet been
evolved. It would naturally come
only as a result of a gradual clear
ing up of the ecclesiastical atmo
sphere or by a happy flash of genius
upon the part of some influential
person in the Church who has not,
by marked partisanship, antagonized
any considerable proportion of the
members of the church. If any
change should be made It would not
become effective unless ratified by a
second trl-ennial convention of the
Church at Large. '
Rev. A. L. Whlttaker, not wishing
to be considered in any sense a par
tisan or a member of any of the so
called parties in tho Church, either
High Church, Low Church or uroaa
Church, but simply as a member of
Christ's church, trying to further
Christ's influence in the world, Is
sincerely desirous of the day when
men of all shades of thought in the
Church shall havo found a name for
the Church which shall be cordially
acceptance to all.
"For the present," concluded
Pastor Whltaker, "tho name, 'Epis
copal Church,' should be satisfactory
as Indicating at least generally the
policy and history of the Church."
Pcnn. Diocese A'otes Against
Changing tho Church Name.
Philadelphia, May 7. The move to
change tho name of the Protestant
'Episcopal church by inserting the
word "Catholic" was voted down,
305 to 11C, at the convention of the
Pennsylvania diocese. Delegates to
the general convention of the church
in New York next October were in

vote was: Ayes Clericals, 130; lay

The Citizen's sporting scribe notes
that the German Catholic club has
organized a base ball team with the
expectation of being the representa'
tivo team of the town. Ho has also
heard that they havo scheduled two
games with the strong Taylor team
for Memorial Day, and Is glad to see
that someone has "push" enough to
go ahead and do things. Your scribe
admires the G. C. club for this elo
ment of "push" and think they de-
servo encouragement. Honesdale
should be represented by tho very
best that can bo produced by home
taient in tho line of base ball. AVhile
the G. C. club will havo a good team.
It probably will not bo as strong as
it could bo made. Honesdale wants
and deserves the best.
It is known that if a regular
Honesdale team is organized it will
have undisputed rights to tho
grounds, whenever they want them,
as the owners of tho property have
always made this clear.
Your "fan" is still of tho opinion
that tho Honesdale baso ball team
should bo reorganized for the sea
son of 1913, and know it can be
dono with a little "push." Now,
