Tho Best Ever Heard In Hones
dale. Memorial 'Day, 1913, will go down
In the annals of local history as one
of the best ever observed In Hones
dale. Patriotism filled the air all
along the line of march. It was re
flected from tho stores and private
houses In the form of Old Glory, be
sides many flags being carried In the
The procession, without a doubt,
was the best ever to have been ex
hibited upon . the streets of Hons
dale. The line of march was stren
gthened by tho addition of the Span
ish War veterans and Jenkins' Boy
hand. There were more children In
line than at any time heretofore, pu
pilB of both the High school, primary
and intermediate grades taking part.
Each pupil carried a bouquet of flow
ers. Owing to some misunderstand
ing the borough council failed to re
ceive their notice to participate in
the parade. Outside of this the af
fairs and doings of the day passed
off smoothly.
Tho program printed in last Tues
day's Citizen was carried out as
reproduced, both as to the line of
march, formation and exercises at
the cemetery. Homer Greene was
master of ceremonies at tho soldiers'
plot, where the exercises wore observed.
The special naval memorial ser
vice at tho bridge was very impres
sive. It consisted of an address by
Rev. C. C. Miller, pastor of St.
John's Lutheran church, which wo
reproduce In part, and tho strewing
of flowers upon the Lackawaxen riv
I er in commemoration of tho marines
who lost their lives at sea.
After these exercises the ranks
were closed and the procession con
tinued its march to the cemetery,
where short services were held. The
exercises were observed as follows:
Exercises nt the Cemetery.

and Drum Corps.

Band: "America."
Attorney Charles P. Searle, orator
or the day, outdid himself in the
rendition of his address. In a clear.
forceful voice he presented before
his largo audience an oration that
will long be remembered In the
minds of patriotic veterans and oth
ers who listened to his masterly ad
dress, lie was heartily applauded
throughout his talk and held the un
divided attention of all. Attornev
Searle is one of Wayne county's ris
ing young lawyers, whose voice we
hope may be heard in the halls of
our legislative and senatorial houses
in the near future. Attorney Searle's
oration will bo found on page 2 of
to-uay's paper.
"Columbia": Band.
Musketry salute to tho dead: Co. E.
Benediction: Rev. George S. Wen
"Taps": Post Bugler.
Tho procession, disbanded in front
of the Post headquarters where din
ner had been prepared by the La
dies' Circle, G. A. R.. Tho largo
number of veterans, their wives and
I children, visiting guests and others
enjoyed the noonday meal. After
wards old time war songs and stor-
lies were sung and told and all re-
Iport having enjoyed themselves.
At St. Mary Madgnlen's Church.
Special Memorial Day services, in
cluding mass at 8:30, attended by
labout 150 children of St. Mary
I Magdalen s church, were held on
Friday morning in that edifice.
iFather J. W. Balta was celebrant.
At 9:30 the children, accompanied
ay tho Sisters of the church and
rather Balta, marched to tho Ger-
Iman Catholic cemetery, where tho
services were concluded. The graves
Bor tno deceased veterans were decor-
lated with flowers and flags. Father
uaita addressed tho children at that
place on the meaning of the day,
Appearance at Cemeteries.
Tho different cemeteries. Including
Jlen Dyberry, Rlverdale, Hebrew, St,
iTohn's Lutheran and German Catho-
llc, were in excellent condition. All
cemeteries, with the exception of the
Batter, are under tho sextonBhin of
Robert J. Miller. Superintendent
i.MUlor has eight men working in
these different plots. Despite the
inclement weather, which sot back
considerable work, tho different lotB
looked fine, reflecting considerable
credit upon Mr. Miller and his efll
biont corps of helpers. Urns on nrl-
raio jots nau lately come rrom tho
Iaplo City green houses containing
uioommg uowers, wmcn harmonized
vith the green vegetation, thus mak
ing a beautiful picture to behold.
Irho graves also were universally
Ilecorated. Tho Glen Dyberry Como-
ery company are opening up a new
errltory on the side hill on which
lire a number of beautiful lots. Tho
roadway which was commenced two
years ago, will bo extended this sea-
fortunes and their lives to tho cauBO
of popular liberty. We cannot say
too much in praise of their heroism,
unselfishness and patriotism. They
placed courtesy above life and prin
ciple above mere existence. They
thereby teach us that life is not
worth living if principle and truth
be missing. It is most fitting there
fore, that we as a nation, set apart
one day of tho year for the purpose
of showing our gratitude, our rever
ence and our love for those who
went forth to light, to suffer, to
groan, to bleed and to die if neces
sary, in order that " this nation un
der God might live and not perish
from the earth."
On this day North and South, full
justice is done to the memory of
those who fought on land; but not
enough has been said of those who
fought and fell on tho mighty deep.
How well they performed their duty
under the most trying circum
stances, is a priceless heritage.
Never, since the great sea fight of
Lepanto, where 300 royal Galleys
manned by 50,000 warriors met 250
Galleys manned by 120,000 men;
never, since Augustus with 269
ships met and scattered the 260
ships of Mark Anthony; never, since
tho inglorious destruction of the
Spanish Armada, has the world seen
such a miraculous creation as the
American navy.
What brilliant achievements are
suggested by the names of Rear Ad
mirals, frigates, ironclads, gunboats
and men of war. Think of our John
Paul Jones, who when asked by the
British Captain: "Have you struck
your colors?" replied, " I have not
yet begun to fight." Think of Hull
and Arnold and Decatur and Potter
and Farragut. Think of tho magic
names of those famous vessels tho
Bon Homme Richard, the Delaware,
the Constitution and the Chesapeake
commanded by Lawrence, whose dy
ing words to his men were: "Don't
give up the ship." Think of the
Niagara commanded by Commodore
Perry who wrote his famous mes
sage on the back of an old letter,
" We have met the enemy and they
are ours." Think of the achieve
ments of Dewey and Schley and of
all the heroic men who fought on
land and sea ever since we became a
While wo then follow with just
and exalted pride the footsteps of
our soldiers, from the Aroostook
to the Golden Gate, from Porto Rico
to the Philippine Islands, erecting
monuments over the graves of thoso
fallen on land and crowning tho
brow of tho living with imperishable
fame, let us concentrate a single
niche in the palace of our memories
to tho patriotic American sailors
who braved the shafts of disease of
every clime, who fell In battle far
away from every sight and sound of
home, parents and friends, whoso
shroud was the Union Jack, whoso
requiem is the everlasting anthem of
the storm-tossed waves, and whose
only monument is the unsullied flag
of their country for which they
fought and died. Ah, they knew
that loving arms would carry the
men who fell on land and bury them
with the honors of war; but for
them, whose ship was at once their
tent, their battlefields, their ambul
ance, their hospital and their dying-
Dea, tnere remained nothing, save
only the cruel jaws of the man-eat
ing shark and the endless tossing of
the sea which knows no rest.
In the cemeteries of Federal and
Confederate dead, North and South,
lie the remains of most of those who
fell and died on land, but where
those are who fell fighting on tho
deep will not be known until the sea
gives up its dead.
Let us then unite with Nature in
adorning tho graves of those who
have gone hence, with greens and
uowers, tokens of our unforeetful
ness and praise. As they cast aside
all distinctions of creed and color
race and position, and strove for a
common cause, the perpetuity of the
iiepublic, so lot us follow Nature
and decorate all graves with equal
tenderness and love. From the
greatest General to tho youngest
drummer boy; from the greatest Ad
miral to the smallest cabin boy, we
do nis day honor all without dlstinc-
tlon. 9
Let our young men and maidens
now scatter flowers in profusion up
on the sepulchres of the nation's de
renders and upon the waters of our
rivers, that they may be borno out
on the receding waves of the sea as
messages of lovo to the bravo sailor
boys who sleep beneath, and may our
nearts mis day noid sweet commun
ion with the dead.

Harness Lets Polo of Surrey Drop in
Going Down Hill Turns and
Tlirows Occupnnts Out Horses
and Surrey Tumble into Ccllnr.
Frank Taylor suffered a severe cut
over the eye and Mrs. Frank Pethick
sustained a badly injured foot as the
result of an accident Friday even
ing about half-past nine o'clock
when they were driving down Green
street on the hill near the Genung
school house.
Frank Stegner, Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Pethick and three children
and Frank Taylor were in the sur
rey. They were returning from Mr.
Taylor's farm that evening arter
spending the day there. The team
of horses driven by Mr. Taylor were
very spirited and when they were
descending the hill the neckyoke of
the harness broke and tho tongue
of the surrey dropped to the road
suddenly, and tipped it completely
over In the road. The occupants
wore thrown out. All sustained
injuries of some sort, but
Mr. Taylor fell, striking his head on
a sharp stone and Mrs. Pethick bruis
ed her foot.
The horses did not stop, however,
and dragged the surrey down the
hill about two blocks where the
whole thing, horses and all, fell In
a tangled mass into the pit dug for
a cellar near the foot of Green street.
They were not badly injured but
were marked with bruises and cuts.
The surrey was completely demolished.
There was a sharp turn in the
road near tho foot of Green street
and instead of turning tho horses
went straight ahead and fell head
long over' the cement wall of tho
cellar of the house Mr. Polley Is
erecting near the foot of the street.
Neighbors came and helped get
the horses out of the pit. It took
an hour to get them out. Dr.
Griffin was called to attend Mr. Taylor.

years of his priestly life. For each
year of his charge a flag was placed
by children around his grave, form
ing a square of 37 flags.
Four flags were placed at Father
Canavan's grave the years of his
priesthood. In a loud and clear
voice, Paul O'Neill read Mr. Homer

Death of Harry Karslake.
Harry Karslake. well known to a
number of Honesdale and Wayno
county friends, died of catarrh of
tho stomach on Saturday at his homo
in Long Island City, N. Y. Mr. Kars
lake was born in England about 68
years ago and had been a resident in
this section of tho country for a
number of years. He is survived by
a wife. William II. Karslake, of

Ho had been attending the auction
horse sale in the afternoon and was
helping a purchaser put a halter on
a wild animal. In somo way tho
horse grabbed tho second linger and
bit it off, pulling a cord or muscle
six Inches long from tho hand and
arm, making a terrible wound. At
the Austin horse sale Saturday over
luu norses were sold.
Fierce Flnmes Robbed of Their Prey
Tiirougli Recent Removal of 500,
OOO Documents.
The savage tiro which broke out
in tho basement of the Geological
Survey building on Sunday, May 18,
while in a sense disastrous, did, in
fact, far less damage than was at
first supposed. Tho bulk of the dam
age was in the largo document room
containing Survey reports and geo
logic folios and a similar- number of
topographic maps. Fortunately,
over 90 per cent, of the Survey bul
letins, water-supply papers, mono
graphs, and other reports had been
transferred last winter to the Gov-
ernment Printing Office and work
had but just begun on the transfer
into the resulting space, from the
adjoining "Annex," of the three and
a half million topographic maps con
stitutlng the Survey stock. Thus
had the Are occurred earlier the loss
in documents would have been many
times greater, while If it had occur
red a little later than It did, after
the transfer of the maps, the loss
would have again been several hun
dred thousand dollars. As it is, about
a quarter of a million topographic
maps were slightly damaged and the
stock of geologic folios was more or
less damaged by fire and water, but
from 80 to 90 per cent, of the folios
are believed to be usable. All these
folios, the regular price of which is
25 or 50 cents a copy, are now offer
ed to the public at 5 cents each, with
no further reduction for wholesale
orders. The "reserve stock" of the
Survey publications is largely
mass of ashes and charred paper,
Many of these reports, from 20 to 30
years old, are now rare books and
this loss perhaps constitutes the
most serious damage. A careful es
timate of the damage caused by the
Are corroborates the original state
ment of a loss of $75,000.
Construction of New Fireproof
Building Delayed.
Tho last session of Congress, after
20 years of more or less constant im
portuning, authorized the construc
tion of a new fire-proof Geological
Survey building at a cost not to ex-
ceed $2,596,000, but before actual
work can be commenced this amount
will have to bo made available in a
regular appropriation bill. This
means an unfortunate delay of an
other year beforo any work can start
other than -the preliminary estimat
ing by the supervising Architect of
the Treasury Department. It may
bo , stated, in justice to tho present
rented survey Duiiding, which is Ire
quently referred to in tho nowsna-
pers as a "flro trap," that this Is a
correct statement largely becauso of
the fact that the congestion due to
the necessary crowding of a very
large bureau into a much too small
building has necessitated the erec
tion' of somo two acres of thin wood
en partitions and other Internal ar
rangements which make the building
a very uaa nro risk.
In Two Trials In Wayne
Wltliin Last Two Years
AVas Indicted Turns Around and
Asks Damages.
George W. Swartz, of Ariel, started
suit in the Wayne county courts
here Saturday through his attorneys,
H. Holgate, of Scranton, and
Kimble & Mumford, of Honesdale,
against Floyd Bortree of Ariel,
claiming tho sum of ?10,000 for
slander and defamation of charac
ter at the hands of Mr. Bortree.
The declaration set forth that G.
W. Swartz, a citizen of the Common-
ealth of Pennsylvania, was In the
mploy of Floyd Bortree, at the lat-
ter's mill at Lake Ariel up to Octo
ber 1911. At that time he was
charged with larceny of money and
merchandise from the mill and was
taken before 'Squire L. J. Pelton
where he was obliged to give bail for
his appearance at court. Ho was
subsequently indicted by the grand
jury on eight counts. In the trial
that followed he was acquitted by
the jury who brought In a verdict
of "not guilty." In March of 1912
he was again arrested on a similar
charge and was again acquitted by a
Mr. Swartz claims that his good
name and standing in tho commun
ity has been ruined by these actions
to impeach his honesty and he
brJngs the action for damages as
u payment of the disgrace he has
suffered on account of it.

First AVent to Olynhnnt. 0-21
Second Called Off to Catch Train.
Score Stood 10-9 Favor of Locals.
The G. C. Club opened their base
ball season hero on Memorial Day
with a team representing Olyphant,
in two loosely played games. In the
first game Olyphant made 6 runs
on 3 hits while tho Honesdale team
only made 3 runs on 9 hits. None of
the pitchers were very well support
ed, but Rose and Loll of the G. C.
club suffered tho most. Rose, who
started to pitch for the G. C. club,
was, very wild, although the boys
from over the hill couldn't hit him
when he got thom over. Olyphant
made their first when Taylor got in
the way of one of Rose's slow ones,
and went to second on McGlaugh
lin's sacrifice, which Dalles muffed,
letting him go to third, and came
home when Shilling juggled Balles'
high throw to catch McGlaughlin at
second, in the third Rose took his
trip in the airship when Zevin .was
safe on an error by W. Polt, Schen
ockl on a error by Mangan and Rose
hit Barnett, Rolls and McGlaughlin
while Taylor made a nice single.
which, coupled with an error by Bal
les netted 4 runs.
Loll, of White Mills, started In
the fourth for Honesdale, and al
lowed two hits and one run for the
balance of the game. His work was
the bright spot in the G. C. side of
the game, as ho seems to have a fine
assortment of curves mixed with lots
of speed; J. Hessling, however, has
trouble in holding him.
The G. C. club made their first
in the second on a hit by W. Polt, a
passed ball and a hit by H. Balles.
Another run crossed the pan in the
fourth on an error by Corsak, a sac
rifice and another hit by H. Balles.
The G. C.'s best run was made in
tne sixth on an error by Colin and
hits by Mangan and Schilling.
xno second game reallv ended In n.
tie, 9 to 9, as tho Olyphant players
had to catch a train. They allowed
their side to bo retired in the first
of the seventh after only one man
was out, and Honesdale In taking
their bat In the last of the seventh
made on run on a three-bagger by
Balles and a sacrifice fly by Hoef
lein. This run, if counted, would
make Honesdale a winner. 10 to 9.
as the game ended at that point, but
the score should revert to the end
of the 6th Inning, making the game
a tie, 9 to 9, because Olyphant was
unuueu to a run lnnine in thn first
of the seventh. Tho lineun:
That Honesdale will have a
Bure base ball team this year is now
almost an assured fact for N. B.
Spencer has taken up tho work ol
organizing with a will. For a time
the prospects looked rather dubious
but they are growing brighter every
day. Mr. Spencer has been assured
of much financial backing from tho
local business men and If enough
money can be raised the grounds
near the silk mill will be scraped
and leveled; the grand stand renew
ed and new bleachers put In. It is
proposed to change the home plato
around so that the right foul lino
will be tho corner of the silk mill.
Saturday afternoon last a few
good "fans" were talking over the
possibilities and finally became so
enthusiastic that our friend, "Nick"
Spencer, whom tho Citizen first
boomed as tho proper man for man
ager, started out to Jlnd just what
the sentiment of some of the local
enthusiasts was, and found so much
enthusiasm, and of the "dig down in
their pocket" kind that It is almost a
sure thing that our newspaper base
ball team will bo a reality in tho
near future. In fact our hustling
manager Spencer has already sent
out his lines fof a game for next
Saturday, and will have repaired tho
bleachers and cleaned the grounds
by that time. Of course all this
means money and we understand
that everyone is to have the privilege
of contributing to the cause.
It is the intention to use a few
White Mills players, and wo under
stand that they are willing. Tho fol
lowing is a list of some of the play
ers who have been mentioned: Loll
of White Mills, a pitcher of tho very
best rank for amateur ball, and the
old reliable Bennie Hessling, Sander
cock, Weaver, Larson and Wenders,
of White Mills; Brader, Mangan,
Dudley, Schilling and Curtis.

Dr. J. H. Franklin, of Philadel
phia, who is spending a few weeks
in Honesdale, is a veteran of tho
Civil war, having served his country
both on land and water. He enlisted
at Cincinnatti, Ohio, as a hospital
steward and was afterwards trans
ferred to Nashville, Tenn. He was
then placed in tho navy. Dr., Frank
lin did service on the gunboat "Car
ondolet'' two months and was then
made hospital steward, having charge
of the sick bay on the boat. Often
times In the absence of Dr. Bannon,
surgeon in charge, Dr. Franklin was
left in full charge of tho hospital
ward on board the vessel.
During tho fight on tho Mississippi
the Carondolet, which was an iron
clad and tho strongest of six iron
clads of tho fleet, captured several
places. Vicksburg was captured af
ter two weeks of hard and terrible
lighting. Other places taken were
Grand Gulf, Yazoo River, Island No.
10, Deer Creek, Rolling Fork and
other places.
Tho Carondolet was equipped with
eight inch guns, four guns on the
port and starboard sides of the boat,
and twelve inch guns in the bow.
The Carondolet always took the lead
in the conflict and was never disabled.
Dr. Franklin said it was a cruel
and barbarous war and only those
who participated in it really know
about it. AVhiie fighting on land it
was a common occurrence to sleep
between two dead men to keep the
cold and chilly winds from blowing
over one, take a stone or fence rail
for a pillow and lay on wet and hard
ground. Those were experiences Dr.
Franklin and others had while doing
duty between Nashville and Chata
nooga. Dr. Franklin had three
brothers enlist in tho 8th Pennsylva
nia cavalry and all survived the war.
