Rev. 'Hlller said In part:
Text: 1st Cor. 15:57 "But thanks
be to God, which giveth us tho vic
tory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Comrades and Friends: I had hop
ed to listen with you to-night to the
beloved pastor of this church as he
should preach to us the Gospel of tho
Christ he so faithfully serves, and
we grieve that serious illness pre
vents him from performing what to
him would have been a labor of love,
and to us a lesson of inspiration and
profit. May God's blessing rest on
Dr. Swift and his loved ones to-night
and may He in whose keeping he
calmly trusts, speedily restore him
to health and strength.
It is a most fitting custom that
you have of gathering in the house
of God on tho Sunday preceding Me
morial Day; It is tho recognition of
that God who through all the years
of peace and war has watched over
this nation and guided it to the
proud position It now holds among
the nations of the world.
If I understand the object of this
occasion, I am not to deliver an ora
tlon, nor strictly speaking a Memor-
lal address. They -will come from
eloquent Hps on 'Decoration Daybut
my task is to preach to these veter
ans and these younger soldiers and
their friends a simple cosnol sermon
that with God's blessing shall help
us to live In loyal service to God and
But the story of our Civil war Is
itself a sermon, written In blood
and voiced by the pallid lips of our
The echoes that come down tho
years, from bugle, fife and drum; the
the roll of musketry, the prison pen
the soldier's grave, the tears of
motherhood, the grief of wife and
sweetheart, the orphan's cry, the na
tionwide desolation of those awful
years of war, and at last the shout
of glorious victory join together in
the exposition of the fundamental
truths of God's Holy Word.
Hark! Fort Sumpter has been fir
ed upon, but the noise of belching
cannon Is the echo of the Judgment
trump of God and tho wrongs of tho
weak and oppressed must be wiped
out In blood.
Neither individuals nor nations can
long conoone or roster sin and es
cape tho penalty thereof. Now the
war is on, and from thousand of loy
al hearts and lips goes forth the
"We are coming from the east,
And we'ro coming from the west.
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
And we 11 hurl the rebel crew,
From tho land wo love tho best,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
But that did not prove to bo as
easy as men thought it would be.
Brave men met brave men in deadly
strire, while the "king of terrors"
gathered in his victims from tho
ranks of the blue and the gray,
and dearly won victory seemed to
the land was filled with mourning,
crown Rebellion's brow! but why?
Because our leaders sought to com
promise, and God would not have it
so. He had said I will dissolve your
covenant with hell. God's purpose
was to preserve the Union, where
every soul should be free.
Oh! those awful days of disaster
and defeat. The rebel army is in
Maryland. There in the White
House, Lincoln, like Jacob of old,
wrestles with God in prayer, crying,
"Help me out of this hole and I
will free tho slaves." God's answer
was Antietam. Lincoln kept his
covenant with the Almighty and then
successive victories followed, Gettys-
ourg, snerman s triumphant march
to the Sea, Grant's victory at Appoma
tox, won at the prlco of precious
blood, mado possible by the courage.
the loyalty, the unspeakable endur
ance of the Boys in Blue, Is, after all
has been said, tho victory of right
over wrong; it is at once tho victory
of uod ana or tne men who were loy.
al to his truth.
The key to the final triumph, was
tho covenant that the Nation's bead
mado with the Almighty, the turning
of that key in tho door of God's
providence was the act of the heroic
men who "counted not their lives
dear unto themselves." So out of
all there comes tho utterance of
God's truth and the sermon written
in blood proclaims: First, God will
have no compromise with Bin. Sec
ond, the best policy for Warrior,
statesman and Individual is unmncb
ing opposition to all things wrong.
Third, Man's partnership with the
Lord, and tho triumph of righteous
ness over sin. It is everlastingly
"That right is right since God is
And right tho day must win;
To doubt would be disloyalty,
To falter would be sin."
Now, if what I have said thus far
is true, then in all reverence as wo
listen to the voices of tho past and
remember the bravo men living and
dead, who offered themselves in de
fence of their country, as we honor
their memories and emulate their
virtues, as wo think of this our na
tive land, free and united, surely in
all reverence and love wo may say:
Thanks be to God which giveth us
the Victory through our Lord Jesus
'Strew with flowers tho graves of
your fallen comrades, let monument
and eloquent lips proclaim their
deeds of sacrifice and valor, rever
ence the veterans that remain, but
let us all remember that the best
that we can do In honor to tho dead
or living soldier Is to yield ourselves
to Him who on the cross made possi
ble the freedom of all men, and who
is calling unto us to follow Him to
the conquest of the world. "Thanks
be to God which giveth us tho victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ."

In the Methodist Church Sunday
Morning Costumes and Curios
Displayed Will Return to India
In tho Future.
Miss Elizabeth Campbell, of Scran
ton( addressed a largo audience in
the Honesdalo Methodist church last
Sunday morning from Rev. Will H.
Killer's pulpit. Miss Campbell, who
has spent two years in India, Is pro
paring herself to return to that field
to continue her work as a mission
ary. She chose as her theme, In
dia, tho Land or sorrows." iuiss
Campbell, after a warm introduction
by Pastor Hlller, commenced her ad
dress by stating that she appeared
before her audience as an India mis
sionary and also an American girl.
She was attired in native costume.
Miss Campbell opened her address by
telling of the different kind of castes
In heathen India, naming iour.
Amonc other things she said in part:
These castes do not mingle with each
other. There are 150,000 of them in
India. She also stated that the peo
ple of the different castes would
starve rather than break a caste.
Miss Campbell related an instance of
little girl four years old, who was
suffering with severe eye trouble
The little one's eyes were badly In
flamed and she recommended that
they receive medical treatment. The
child s eyes were examined but De-
fore the examination was made a rel
ative told Miss Campbell that she
nor the doctor must touch the little
one, for If they did so It would break
the caste. The ointment was secur
ed, but unfortunately was not ap
plied. Tho next time Miss Campbell
saw the little girl she observed that
her eyes were looking worse instead
of better and remarked to the fatner
that his child would lose her eye
sight if not treated. He replied in
an unconcerned way that he didn't
caro if Bhe did, that then she would
go around and beg and being so
small she would receive considerable
money and then ho would not have
to work for years to come.
The greatest drawback In Chris
tianizing India is Its child marriage.
The missionaries of India, however,
under much difficulty, succeeded In
changing tho limit of the marriage
able age from 10 to 12 years. Little
girls become married from the ago of
three to 12 years. Their husbands
are often many years their senior,
Should they die the widow is blamed
for his death. She then goes to live
with her late husband's relatives and
lives an unbearable, life, , There are
26,000,000 widows in India. A wid-.
ow can never marry again. j
The laborers of India are very
poorly paid. There are very few
manufacturing plants there, which
makes the chief work that of agri
culture. Rice is tho chief product.
Tho farmers are entirely dependent
upon tho rains. If there is not suffi
cient rain, then crops will bo poor.
A laborer receives about a cent and
a half a day for his hire. There are
millions of beggars in India. Over
two million priests are beggars.
These holy men go from house to
house and beg rico. You often read
in the papers about a famine in India
and of people starving. One reason
Is that the crops have been poor and
another, you have not sent enough
money to India to help sustain these
people during such times.
The people of India live in houses
12 or 13 feet square. They are one
story high and are made of mud with
straw or bamboo roofs. The whole
family, father, mother, children and
if some are married, live in this
small hut. Should they own a goat
or ox theso also are In the same
When a native of India is asked
how many children ho has ho never
counts tho girls, claiming they do
not amount to much, that they are
expensive ana cost too much to have
them married. Often times when a
bright little girl is born to parents
tne ratner is seen going about the
room with his hands folded and his
thumb pressed hard in the palm of
his left hand. This is to indicate to
the nurse to press a certain spot on
tho top of tho baby girl's head.
rRESTON GIRL STILL IN
Six-year-old Anna Haines, of
Preston Park, who was burned in a
fire last woek which destroyed the
home of her parents and in which
her fourteen-year-old sister was
mortally burned. Is still In a serious
condition and is not yet out of dan
ger, say the doctors at tho State
hospital. It is believed, however,
that the child will recover.

Tho Wayno Street Railway com
pany has been granted its charter by
Governor J. K. Tener.
That the company received tho
charter so soon after' the right of way
was obtained, is due to Mr. E. F.
Draper, of New York City, who left
no stone unturned in getting It. Mr.
Draper is a hustler. He secured the
right of way, (which under a new
law must be had before a charter
can be obtained,) went to Harrisburg'
and in four days' time had the as
surance that the charter would be
granted. In other words what would
have taken an ordinary procedure,
a month to acquire Mr. Draper did
in less than a week. He is a man of
experience, having built seven trolley
roads and operates one, and knows
how to do things. Mr. Draper will
remain in Honesdale during the con
struction of the trolley road, giving
his undivided attention to its construction.
A meeting of the stockholders of
the company will be held on Wednes
day afternoon at 3 o'clock at which
time organization will be perfected
and officers and directors elected
The board will consist of eleven di
rectors, all of whom, except two
Hawleyltes, are residents of iHones-
Mr. Draper was persistent in his
work In getting tho right of way
from the Erie railroad. Possessing a
great big share of that excellent
quality, stlck-to-lt-iveness, Mr. Drap
er finally secured the signature of the
Erie president, which makes possible
the building of the Wayne County
Street Railway lino between Hones
dale and Hawley. The right of way
is along and over the old Delaware
and Hudson Company's tow path,
which is owned by the Erie railroad.
Material for building the road will
be shipped to Honesdale and distrib
uted along the survey of the propos
ed route as soon as possible. Two
hundred workmen have been engaged
which will insure laying about one
half mile of road per day. .
Mr. Draper has also secured the
right of C. Lambert, of the firm of
Dexter, Lambert & Co., to erect the
street railway's car barns on a plot
of ground just below the Herman
bridge. Work on tho construction
of this building will also begin with
in a short time.
The equipment, cars, etc., will be
of lthe latest type and the best ob-
lainaoiG. ren cars win De purcnasea
but all of them will not operated at
one time, unless occasion demands
it, such as holidays and the like. Ex

tween the terminal points on the
Until tho Wllsonvllle dam will
have been completed and placed in
condition to furnish electricity for
power, the trolley company is plan
ning to receive its juice from the
Honesdale Consolidated Light, Heat
and Power company and the Haw
ley Electric Light company. It will
either do this or perhaps build Its
own power plant In Honesdale. It
Is more than likely, however, that
the power will be obtained from the
two electric light plants at the north
and south terminals of the road.
When the time comes, and it is
expected that it will bo here within
a few months, the Wayne County
Street Railway company will do its
share toward paving Main street,
Tho company will pay for that sec
tion between tho rails and two feet
on either side. This will entail an
expenditure of about $10,000.
There is another feature connected
with the operation of the trolley
system which The Citizen Is unable
to mention In this article, but will
enlighten its readers as soon as it
possibly can do so. It is something

Tho trolley will be the means of
developing Wayne county, especially
that territory that lies between
Honesdale and Hawley. It will be re
ceived by the welcomo hand of the
merchant, manufacturer, newspaper
man, suburbanite and public at large.
Its usefulness cannot be estimated.
Tho Citizen congratulates tho incor
porators of the proposed trolley sys
tem in obtaining Mr. Draper, who
sees a big possibility In Honesdale
from a commercial and industrial
standpoint. Due credit also belongs
to Postmaster M. B. Allen who was
Instrumental in securing Mr. Draper

COMMITTED TO JAIL
FOR ALLEGED THEFT
THOMAS HALEY, HONESDALE
YOUNG MAN, MUST AWAIT THE
ACTION OF GRAND JURY.
II. It. Ostendorf, Cnnnnn, is Prosecu
tor Only $1.10 Found on Man
When Arrested Friday Night
Hearing Held Saturday.
Thomas Cortrlght, alias Thomas
Haley, was committed to the county
jail Saturday In default of ball to
await the action of tho June grand
jury. It is alleged that he took $40
from the pocket of H. B. Ostendorf,
a farmer living near Waymart, with
whom he was driving between
Honesdale and Waymart on Thurs
day night. Detective Spencer arrest
ed Haley at the Hotel Wayno Fri
day night and he was given a hearing
Saturday morning In tho Sheriff's
office before 'Squire W. H. Ham.
Three hundred dollars' ball was ask
ed by the justice but the man could
not get It and went to jail to await
the action of tho grand jury.
According to H. B. Ostendorf, the
two men spent the afternoon In
Honesdale where both made the ac
quaintance of John Barleycorn and a
few others. Ostendorf then invited
Haley to ride back to Waymart with
him. The Invitation was accepted.
Just what happened on the way was
not clear to either of the men when
telling their story to the justice.
When Ostendorf arrived home he
found that his money was gone and
he looked around for Haley. The
latter was enjoying himself and ap
parently had plenty of money In his
possession. When arrested in Hones
dale the next day Haley told Detec
tive Spencer that Ostendorf had giv
en him $2, but on being searched
$4.10 was found on the man and he
told the justico that Ostendorf had
given him $C. Tho remainder of the
money including a few checks were
not found but It is supposed that
they were transferred for drink while
Haley was enjoying himself In Way-
Haley was arrested several years
ago on the instigation of E. H. Cort

The largo home of Frank Bodie
was destroyed by fire at Prompton
on Saturday morning, burning most
of the contents. Mr. Bodle and wife
were in Honesdale when their home
caught fire and were reached by
'phone. They were taken to Promp
ton by auto. A new fire was built
in their stove in the morning and it
is presumed that the conflagration
started from a spark. As far as Mr.
Bodle knows everything was appar
ently In a safe condition when he
left tho place.
General Bodie, who lives near his
father s home, rushed to the burn
ing building. He broke in the front
door. Fire was leaping up the
stairway between the first and sec
ond floors. Very little of the con
tents were removed. Tho barn,
which is almost new, was saved by
hard work on the part of the neighbors.
Mr. Bodle carried $050 insurance
upon his homo. Mrs. Bodle had
$400 insurance on the furniture.
The building was known as the
Scudder property. Mr. Bodle has
been in possession of the place for
about a year.

TO THE PUBLIC:
Circumstances alter cases. On April third we announced that on or about May first, we
would occupy a new store in the Schuerholz building, opposite the new post office. The cir
cumstances were these: We saw a chance for improvement in the store features and the opening
was deferred four weeks. Now, on Saturday, May thirty-first, we will do business in the new
and most modern jewelry shop in Northeastern Pennsylvania. We say the most modern be
cause it is the most modem, and we leave it to you to share judgment in this assertion.
That old saving, "Competition is the life of Business": Fiddlesticks, Ideas are the life o
Business, and these are the ideas that go to make up the new store. First of all the quality o
the goods that we will sell to you and you and you. Absolutely the best jewelry that we can
buy and sell to you at a reasonable price, and then the exclusive sale of Ray Hand Painted
China (painted here in Honesdale) and sold at a remarkably low margin of profit. Those are
the best ideas of the jewelry business m an up-to-date jewelry store that we can tlnnk of.
In conclusion, we want every one, man, woman, boy and girl to visit our new store this
coming Saturday, May thirty-first, regardless of whether you are an old customer, new custom
er, purchaser or non-purchaser, and voice your sentiments. Come after six o'clock p. m. and
get a souvenir worth while. You are not obligated to a single purchase. Just a great big
invisible Welcome sign hangs over the door.

Much Enthusiasm Shown by nil
Present Looks Like There Was
Many Suffragettes in Honesdalo
Spoke in Mlllord Friday Night.
" The subject of universal suf
frage, to give the woman the right to
vote, has been widely misunder
stood. It is not a struggle between
men and women. It is not a ques
tion of sex, but of right. Wo can
never have a pure democracy until
women have been given the ballot,"
said Miss Lydla Stokes Adams, ad
dressing a good-sized audience in the
High school auditorium Thursday
night. Miss Adams has been a prom
inent worker for the cause of woman
suffrage In the state for many years
and Is devoting her time to organ
izing suffragette societies through
out the state, although as she said,
"wo think we will get our bill
through anyway, but we want so
cieties In every county so that tho
constituents of the men in Harris
burg may feel sure that they are
acting In good faith In voting for tho
It was a fairly representative
gathering that greeted Miss Adams
Thursday night, notwithstanding tho
fact that it has always been general
ly supposed that Wayne county, and
especially Honesdale contained very
few "suffragettes." As Miss Adams
explained the claims of women and
championed the cause, there was
much enthusiasm shown. Miss
Adams did not mention the suffrage
movement in England and tho meth
ods that are being used there to gain
the ballot. The leaders of the move
ment In this country are not militant
and in this respect they can be com
plimented. "Some of tho causes of the promi
nence of the movement in Pennsyl
vania," said Miss Adams, "are first,
that the gates of higher education
have been opened to women. They
are now found in all walks of life in
competition with men and earning
their own living in the professions
and industry of the world. The
second cause that has led up to this
movement Is the industrial revolu
tion that wo have passed through.
Women suffrage Is not a new thing.
It has a natural growth with the de
velopment of Ideals and morals.
From the time, not so very many
years ago, when woman was consid
ered the property of her husband,
and she could not own property of
her own or even call her children
her own, down to the present day
when the laws of most states have
changed all these things. Wo do not
say that wo want the ballot in order
to make the government better, but
o believe that it is our right. Bet
ter government will inevitably come
with universal suffrage. Women
have always worked and never shirk
ed. They want to share in the duty
and responsibility of government.
They do not wish to be classed as
minors or Idiots or imbeciles to
whom the government refuse the
right to vote. Women are capable
of doing the things man does if they
are given the privilege of representa
tion so that they may learn.
"The vote is necessary to the
working woman. She must be able
to protect herself in her work. It is
necessary to the women in tho
home. Formerly the food and cloth
ing wore prepared in the home, now
by the Inventions of men they are
prepared outside the home.
Women are what is called "the
neglected factor.' Their point of
view is not represented in govern
ment. The vote is the tool, and we
must get that before we can ad
vance in science and civic develop
ment. 'Taxation without represen
tation Is tyranny.' This is as truo to
the women of to-day as it was to tho
men of yesterday. At that time the
man represented the women but the
laws have undergone a process of
evolution duo In a largo degree to
the efforts of tho pioneer suffragists.
To-day women have more individual
rights and should be represented by
the ballot. They pay a large per
cent, of the taxes, therefore it is un
just that we should be classed with
aliens and minors. The principle or
democracy Is based on tho fact that
all just governments derived their
powers by the consent of the govern
ed. If this is truo then we have no
democracy. Women must have the
opportunity to give their consent to
In summing up, Miss Adams said
that the object of tho movement is
to raise the status of women. It is
not primarily to improve govern
ment. It is non-partisan and free
from all affiliations.
Mrs. Chapman, of Scranton, was
introduced by Miss Adams. Mrs.
Chapman is not a speaker, but an
organizer and she talked of a possi
ble organization for Honesdalo and
Wayno county, Tho fifth division in
cludes Wayne county and sho is
chairman of this division. She ex
pressed her willingness to come to
Honesdalo at any time and help or
ganize a society here.
It is thought that a society will
be started here in the near tuure.
