Damages for Injuries Sustained in
Road Accident on Nov. II, 1000,
in Salem Township.
After hearing the arguments of
the attorneys in the cases of Fred
erick Kroiger against tho township
of Salem, and Frederick Kreiger and
Gertrude Kreiger, his wife, against
the same township, the board of ar
bitrators composed of F. H. Crago,
Oscar E, Bunnell and C. M. Betz,
who were appointed by the court to
hear- evidence in tho cases, which
have been pending in the local courts
for several years, awarded the plain
tiffs' damages to the amount of $775
late Thursday afternoon. In the
case brought by Mr. Kreiger, who is
a native of Pike county, to recover
damages for injuries to his horse and
wacon, the arbitrators awarded $25.
In the suit to recover damages for
personal injuries the awards were as
follows: Mr. Kreiger, $150 and Mrs,
The suits for damages were
brought against the supervisors of
Salem township, through Attorney
M. B. Simons, who asked for $1,000
for Mrs. Kreiger and $500 for Mr,
Kreiger, and in the statement filed
the supervisors were charged with
negligence for not having tho road
near Ledgedale properly guarded.
Mr. and Mrs. Kreiger were driving
along the road leading from Ledge-
dale in Salem township on the even
ing of November 11, 1909. The
road at the place of the accident had
a down grade and on one side there
was a high bank and on the other
was a declevlty which was unguard
ed. There was a turn in tho road
and Mr. Kreiger supposing he had
come to tho turn pulled the horses
heads around and drove over the
embankment. It was a fall of many
feet; the wagon turned over as it
pitched downward and threw tho oc
cupants out. Both sustained severe
injuries. Mrs. Kreiger suffered
fractured skull, having as it is sup
posed, struck her head on tho wheel
of tho wagon in falling and has nev
er entirely recovered. The horses
sustained injuries and the wagon
was badly damaged.
The evidence in the case was
heard several weeks ago but a de
cision waB postponed to give tho ar
bitrators "time to go to the scene of
the accident and make an inspection
of tho road. On account of the bad
weather tho trip was not made un
til Tuesday. On Thursday afternoon
Attorneys M. E. Simons for the
plaintiffs, and Searle & Salmon for
tho supervisors of Salem township,
argued the caso before the arbitra-
tors in the grand Jury room in the
court house and late that afternoon
a decision was reached in which
damages were awarded.
Blnzo Discovered in Rcnr of Store
About Ono O'clock by Man Driv
ing Near St. John's Church Con
siderable Damage Done.
Early Sunday morning about 1
o'clock a blaze was discovered in tho
rear of tho Keystone block and an
alarm of fire was turned in.
John Roegner, Jr., was driving
home Sunday morning and when
near St. John's church on the hill
saw tho flames leaping up In the rear
of what ho thought was Erk Broth
ers' hardware store. He turned in
the alarm and tho Honesdale fire
companies responded. When they
arrived they found that tho fire was
not in the building occupied by Erk
Brothers but was In the rear of Men
ner & Co.'s store. The south corner
of the rear end on the main floor was
In flames. The front door was forc
ed and a stream of water was put
into action on tho flames, which were
soon extinguished, but not before
much damage had been done by
smoke and water to tho interior of
the store. If it had not been checked
whon it was, It would probably have
resulted in one of the most disas
trous fires in many years.
There is a porch in the rear of tho
building and beneath this is a space
where the air pipe from tho furnace
protrudes through a basement win
dow. It is supposed that some ono
carelessly dropped a lighted match
under the porch and this smouldered
for some time before breaking out
In a blaze. Somo think that its orig
in was Incendiary. Tho fire burned
the heavy two-inch planks from the
floor of the rear porch and then the
flames leaped through the basement
window where they burned through
the floor leading into the main room
of the store.
It was several hours before the
fire was extinguished from the
smouldering heap of rubbish in the
Mr. Brown told a Citizen man this
morning that he had left the store
about eleven o'clock Saturday night.
Before he left he looked over every
thing and is positive there was no
sign of firo then.
Menner & Co. will be heavy los
ers principally from water and smoke
but tho extent of the damage done
can not be estimated until It is gono
over completely. The loss will
reach up to many hundreds of dol
lars however, but insurance will cov
er part of the loss.
PIANO FALLS OVER.

At tho regular meeting of the
Honesdale school board in tho high
school Thursday evening, tho budget
for tho coming year was made. The
expenses for running the school for
another year was estimated at $15,
300 and in order' to meet this ex
pense, tho members of tho school
board placed the tax levy at six and
one-half mills, which ds the same
as it has been for a number of
years. No increase in the tax levy was
The routine business was disposed
of and current bills were ordered
paid. This meeting of the school
board Is the last, but one to be held,
for the present school year closes .In
June. There will be ono more meet
ing in June, which will bo the last
for this school year.
The members of the board discuss
ed the new law that was recently
passdd by the State Legislature re
garding the placing of an agricul
tural course in the high schools
throughout the state. The bill has
been passed and signed by Governor
Toner, but It did not carry with it
enough of an appropriation to make
It possible for it to be carried into
effect by the school boards of the
State. The bill provides that the
State be divided Into thirty districts.
Wayne, Susquehanna and Pike coun
ties comprise one of these districts.
It also provides for state help in pay
ing for an agricultural professor and
for the rental of a 5-acre tract of
land as an experimental farm, where
experiments in farming can be car
ried on by tho classes under the di
rection of an experienced teacher.
The Honesdale school board are do
ing all they can to get the appropria-;
tlon bill passed so that a course of
this kind can be put Into operation
in the Honesdale High school. It is
hoped that the efforts of these men,
aided as they are by County Superin
tendent J. J. Koehler and several
other prominent men in Wayne
county, will be rewarded, for an agri
cultural course .In our schools will
prove of everlasting benefit to
BIG TRUCK TIME-SAVER.
Since the Installation of the Gar
ford truck by Riefler & Sons, Tan
ners Falls, used to convey charcoal
and acetate from the acid factory to
Honesdale, replacing horses, a trip
has been made in 37 minutes. Here
tofore it took a team from two and
n half to three hours to cover the
distance. The truck not only makes
the trip In one-fifth of tho time, but
accomplishes the work of six teams.
The average trip is mado in 40 min
utes. On one occasion 9,210 pounds
was carried and it took just 45 mln-'
utes to come from tho factory to tho
dock at Honesdale. The truck is
four ton capacity and also weighs
about that much. After better fa
cilities for loading soft coal at
Honesdale has been secured it is
expected that, whereas it now takes
half an hour to load, it can be done
In five minutes. Mr. Riefler has
asked the Delaware and Hudson
company to erect a coal pocket at
tho place of loading. After this is
erected Mr. Riefler estimates that tho
truck will bo able to do tho work
of eight teams of horses.
Riefler & Sons make and ship
large quantities of charcoal. Tho
company average a car a day. The
charcoal is shipped loose, although
it comes to market in bags. The
product is taken from the bags when
tho car is loaded, it requiring about
400 'bags to fill an ordinary freight
Mr. Riefler some time ago contem
plated building a steam tramway in
the lumber camps to convey the acid
wood to the factory, but has resorted
to the "pole road" instead. Tho
teams that were formerly used to
convey the factory's product to
Honesdale are now used in tho
woods on the polo road and elsewhere.

Question Far Reaclilng Orientals'
Challcngo For Equality Wlth
Whitcs Must bo Answered.
London, May 19. The Times gives
prominence this morning to a long
article by Sir Valentine Chlrol, its
foreign editor, treating the Japanese
dispute with the United States as a
grave international issue. The
Times editorially takes tho same
view. The article says:
'The ultimate point of tho dispute
does not affect the United States
alone, still less California. It is a
world question essentially. The fears
of the inhabitants of the Pacific
slope are exaggerated and prema
ture, but they are not entirely
groundless. No useful purpose can
be served by blind condemnation of
the tendencies of public opinion in
tho Western States. They do not
spring so much from race hatred as
from the Instinct of self-preservation,
and if the present minor dispute
is composed they will assuredly re
cur. The timo has come when Japan
is disposed to challenge the very es
sence of the attitude of Western na
tions toward Asiatics. She asks ad
mission to the comity of nations on
Emphasizing ono of tho points
made by Sir Valentino Chlrol, the
"Japan's challenge comes at a mo
ment that is fraught with peculiar
danger. Japan is entering upon a
new era. Her elder statesmen have
nearly all passed away and few are
left to check tho impulses of popular
passion. The semi-divine attributes
of the ruler no longer serve to sway
or soothe the nation in moments of
anger. Japanese democracy is knock
ing at the doors of the council cham
bers and we fear it is a 'democracy
"Which Is headstrong, excitable and in
experienced, qualities which are
shared in a greater or less degree by
all democracies. We are thus on
both sides confronted by a situation
of very special difficulty."
Dealing specifically with the Cali
fornia Issue the editorial says:
"It is an issue which will become
moro Insistent, whatever may be set
tled now, and It will have to receive,
tho earnest attention of all white
races in time to come. But tho mag
nitude of tho question Is out of all
proportion to the immediate dispute."
"Japan nevertheless will do well
to remomber that her claim to enter
a neighbor's garden can at best be
only' quietly pursued. ' It is not the
kind of a claim that can be pressed
with an unrestricted indication, how
over strong its documentary support
