FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1013.
1913 has been an "off" year since
Its appearance nearly six months
ago. It started In March with a
Democratic administration; the fall
of snow was light, thus affecting
lumbering; sap did not flow In its
accustomed season; frost came too
early and cooked vegetation and
there are other things.
There is an old saying that runs
along something like this: "May
come soon or late it will make the
old cow shake." If ever this has
been fully demonstrated it certain
ly was this spring. Man as well as
beast has shook and the straw hat
which made its appearance a few
days ago, has been "shook" back in
to the banbox.
In computing the value of what
we got for the $40,000,000 wo paid
to the French our Government jots
down the stock of the old and inade
quate Panama Railroad at $9,000,
000, which is nearly $200,000 a mile,
and we are spending about $200,000
a mile more to relocato and rebuild
most of it. The average capitaliza
tion of United States railroads is
about $00,000 a mile. The gross
earnings of the Panama Railroad are
about $92,000 a mile per annum, as
against $11,000 a mile average in
the United States. The first class
passenger rate is 5 cents a mile and
its average rate a ton mile 5 cents,
as against an average of three
fourths of one cent a ton mile in the
United Stdtes; and when the railroad
was threatened with congestion the
company simply notified prospective
patrons that they would not take any
additional business. New York Sun.
DH YOU MISS YOUR SAMTM3
Beginning with Tuesday last wo
began placing a sample copy of Tho
Citizen in every home in Honesdale,
in Hawley, in White Mills and in
Texas township generally. It takes
a lot of papers to do this, and there
may be some homes that have been
overlooked. If YOU did not got a
copy of Tuesday's issue, which con
tained the first installment of Thos.
Dixon's great serial, "Tho Root of
Evil," we shall esteem it a favor if
you will notify this office, by 'phone,
or by tho most convenient method to
you, and we will most gladly see that
you get a copy. Another thing: Did
your neighbor get a copy? Please
find out, for we want to do exactly
what we sot out to do put a copy of
THE CITIZEN in every homo in the
places mentioned above.
NEW CIGARETTE IiAW.
A bill prohibiting the sale or giv
ing of cigarettes to minors, has been
signed by Governor Tener. If the
new law is properly enforced it will
have a tendency to stop all cigarette
smoking by boys who are under age.
It Is a measure that has attracted
much newspaper comment in evory
part of tho state. Thoro has been,
up to tho present time, a law on tho
statuto books, regulating the sale of
cigarettes to minors, but the enforce
ment of the law was very lax
and it might as well nover have been
passed. The same may be truo of
the now law, If It is allowed to re
main a dead letter, and no strenuous
action taken for its rigid enforce
ment. The bill says that any person who
Bhall furnish to any minor by gift,
salo or otherwlso, any cigarette or
cigarette paper, shall bo guilty of a
misdemeanor and upon conviction
thereof shall bo sentenced to pay a
fine of not less than $100 or raoro
than $300 and to undergo imprison
ment of not loss than thirty days.
Any man being in possession of a
cigarette or cigarette paper, who
shall refuse to tell where ho got it,
shall bo guilty of a misdemeanor
and shall bo subject to a fine not ex
ceeding $5 and undergo imprison
ment not exceeding five days.
It is charged against tho cigarette
that it lias caused moro boys to lose
their employment than any other
reason, and that tho effect of the
poison it contains upon persons of
tender years is deplorable, Justifying
EAItTA' CLOSING ADVOCATED.
The merchants of Honesdale are
endeavoring to close their respective
stores on Monday evenings, which
should have been dono several years
ago. The hardware stores have
practiced early closing for the past
few years, and it is claimed that
nothing can induce these gentlemen;
to go back to the old regime of keep
ing their stores open after G o'clock
at night. The Business Men's Asso
ciation members and others will give
early closing a try-out during the
months of July and August. It is
hoped that at the end of that time
the merchants will all turn tho key
in the doors of their respective
stores at G o'clock and not return to
the old and present method of keep
ing shop open after that hour. If all
the merchants closo at G o'clock
there will be nothing to lose.
When once a habit is acquired it is
hard to get away from it. Mer
chants of Honesdale acquire the
habit of early closing!
faction in proclaiming as Secretary of
State the amendment to tho Consti
tution providing for tho direct elec
tion of Senators, of which ho was
an early and an ardent advocate.
The amendment gives constitu
tional sanction to a" method which
has been attained indirectly In many
states by means of Senatorial pri
maries whose results were binding
by force of popular opinion, and in
honor if not in law upon members
of the Legislature. There is no
doubt that popular sentiment sus
tains this charge, so contrary to tho
wishes of tho makers of tho consti
tution. Lot the tree be judged by its fruit!
The Senate has been losing, not
gaining, Intellectual distinction in
tho last few years. Whatever tho
causes of this, every Senator will bo
in a few years, as many Senators are
now, tho chosen of tho people. There
can be no shifting of responsibility,
no evasion. Tho Senate, so long as
sailable as "a millionaire's club," Is
soon to be absolutely an elective
council, coming straight from the
The business men and merchants
of Honesdale are planning to take
advantage of the Chautauqua by
having special trade days while that
educational fote is being held in
Honesdale. It would appear from a
layman's point of view that this
would be an ideal time to work up
new business, owing to the fact that
so many people from the surround
ing rural territory will be in town.
The Citizen will boom and give all
assistance possible in its columns to
help make this a paying feature for
the merchants. Gentlemen, you are
on tho right track. What is the
matter of taking advantage of Fair
week in the same manner? Periodi
cal trade days will have a tendency
to stimulate business and is a good
medicine for every man in tho mer
cantile line to administer to himself.
Democratic leaders at Washington
are now making the threat that they
will Increase the severity of the Un
derwood bill and greatly change the
free list unless the manufacturers
carry uncomplainingly and at a loss
the burdens that are about to be
placed upon their shoulders. Speak
ing as a member of tho finance com
mittee, Senator Charles S. Thomas
of Colorado, said recently:
I serve notice on those man
ufacturers who attempt to
coerce their employes and who
in other ways would discredit
tariff legislation by threats of
closing their factories or reduc
ing wages that if they are not
careful the rates will bo not only
further reduced but tho free list
will be enlarged.
Was there ever a more shameful
attempt to mislead and inflame pub
lic opinion and to blackmail the
manufacturer into paying for the
follies of political theorists?
If he finds that'under the now bill
his profits have been taken away, he
Is not to bo permitted to closo up
shop under penalty of forfeiting
whatever ho may have loft. If he has
no orders to fill, or if ho is selling
finished products for less than raw
materials cost him, ho must keep
going just the same. Ho must main
tain wages at protection figures be
causo he will be hanged on "a gib
bet as high as Hainan's" if he
Tho thing is absurd, of course. No
man can be compelled to do business
at a loss, and tho only possible pur
pose of such preposterous talk is to
prepare tho minds of tho people for
an industrial collapse and to have
suspicion of the manufacturer firmly
Implanted in the popular mind before
tho blow falls.
In this way, tho Democracy hopes
to escape tho penalties of its ruinous
radicalism. It has no Republican
Senate to blamo eventualities on now,
and must And another scapegoat.
Who so tempting as tho manufactur
er? The very transparency of the con
spiracy will prove its undoing.
