Washington, Aug. 27. Another
turn in the Mexican situation late

This statement by Mr. Bryan was
regarded as significant. Up to this
time ho had refused to commit him
self on the Mexican situation beyond
saying that it was unchanged. The
fact that he was willing to announce
that it was "encouraging ' led to the
belief that Huerta has given some
substantial ground for hope.
Mr. Bryan declined to indicate in
any way whether Huerta had made
concessions or what was the basis of
The note, a summary of which was
communicated to Mr. Bryan, was
sent by special courier to Mr. Lind at
Vera Cruz by President Huerta last

anxiously for some word in regard
to this note but when it failed to

HONESDALE IS ASSURED OF
CHAUTAUQUA NEXT YEAR
Everybody Praised the Program
LAST SESSION CLOSED AVEDNESDAY NIGHT WITH AHLE ADDRESS
BY VM. T. ELLIS, LECTURER, TRAVELER AND WRITER
JUDGE BEX LIXDSEY, JUDGE OF THE JUVEXILE
COURT OF DENVER, PLEASED LARGE AU
DIEXCE TUESDAY XIGHT EXTER- '
TAIXERS OF HIGHEST MERIT.
The Chautauqua interest was man
ifested as strongly on Monday as any
day of the week. Dr. Turner again
greeted a large audience who listen
ed with the closest attention to his
lecture upon The Family a Social
Unit." He introduced his subject
by stating that there are four rea
sons for marriage, namely, beauty,
love, purpose and business. The
presence of children in the home was
advocated by Dr. Turner. A child
has done much to bring about har
mony and concerted action between
the parents. In punishment, Dr.
Turner stated, there ought to be an
agreement between father and moth
er, that is, if a father corrects a child
the mother should uphold him in dis
cipline. The speaker believes that
husband and wife should enjoy pros
perity together and share in sym
pathizing in sorrow. An illustration
of the fidelity of this was shown in
Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Strauss, who
both sank with the Titantlc. This is
a strong bond in the social unit. On
the other side of the ocean the man
asserts himself as being the head of
the house. Sociology believes that
that is better than no head or where
the boy or girl is tho domineering
The question of who a young man
or woman should marry is one wor
thy of consideration. It was ' the
speaker's opinion that a young man
would do better to go out of his own
community to find a wife. Should a
young man marry for money?
Should ho be encouraged to marry
his mother-in-law? Not by a license
but "Take Mary take me." The ma
jority of this kind of cases are un
wholesome and unhappy. The young
couple should start out in life alone.
If in after years a home can be pro
vided for tho loving father and ten
der mother, well enough, but not at
the beginning of the wedded life.
Marry early. The speaker's advice
to young people was to become home
owners rather than tennants. He ad
vised young couples to get in debt
very early in life for what it is neces
sary to have. A house is something
you need, Don't buy what you
don't need, for instance an automo
bile. The present schedule of di
vorce laws In the 48 states is a dis
grace to the Union. By living in Ne
vada a few weeks a man can dissolve
the marriage bond between himself
and wife. Women don't nag your
husbands and husbands don't get the
nagging habit. Often times men and
women are nervously constituted and
sooner or later become Dhvslcal
wrecks. In tho world do your duty
and more. To do only your duty is
hard and cruel. To be happy you
should give. Do your duty and a
little more. It will bring to you
Dictrics and Rosnni Amuse.
Following Dr. Turner's address
Mr. and Mrs. DIetric entertained the
audience for the remainder of the
aiiernoon. jur. uietnc was very
ciover in perrorming ins magic tricks,
which greatly pleased the little folks
and grown people as well. Rosani,
the Prince of Jugglers, by his won
derful juggling acts, demonstrated
to the audience that ho Is what his
name implies. Ho did a number of
astounding feats in balancing. He
was one of the star attractions of the
AVllliam Sterling Battis.
William Sterling Battis imperson
ated the characters In a number of
Charles Dickens' writings with great
aptitude. Mr. Battis represented the
following characters: "Bill Sykes '

from "A Tale of Two Cities"; "Sam

"Uriah Hepp, rrom David Copper-

ers. Mr. uattis mado up his charac
ters on the platform before his audi
ence. Tho evening program closed with
Tuesday Gain Day for Children.
The coming of Judge Ben B, Lind

to Honesdale on Tuesday gladdened
more than one boy's and girl's heart.

Opp. New P. O.
scheduled to arrive in Honesdale at
10:15 from Farview where he stop
ped for a short time on his way here
from Carbondale. At 10 o'clock
about fifty children headed by a
juvenile fife and drum corps, (but
instead of fifes, horns were used)
marched down Main street from the
Chautauqua tent to Central Park.
The children carried the stars and
stripes at the head of the procession,
while placards, bearing the words,
"Hurrah for Ben, the Children's
Friend," "Vote for Ben," and other
banners were held aloft by the lit
tle admirers of this great jurist.
Miss Foster, who had charge of tho
Junior Chautauqua, and Mr. AVard
accompanied the procession. Judge
LIndsey upon his arrival was given
a hearty welcome by the children t6
which he responded in his most gen
tle and characteristic manner. After
a short address by Judge Lindsey the
little company disbanded, all children
going to their respective homes with
lighter hearts and a feeling of sat
isfaction like they had not experi
enced in some time.
The first session was opened by
Dr. Turner who gave a masterful
lecture upon "Sociology and Educa
tion." He said in part:
"If America is not democratic in
the true sense in her system of gov
ernment, she .is democratic in her
schools. Education was defined as
the maintenance of social units in
their normal relationships.
Certain defects of the educational
system were graphically pointed out.
The speaker emphasized particular
ly the large number of incompetent
teachers to be found in tlie profes
sion. He attributed this situation to
the prevalent practice of making
school teaching a stepping stone to
one's ultimate vocation. The prime
responsibility for this situation,
however, was said to be the par
simonious policy of the average
school board. It was affirmed that
teifthers wero more Inadequately
paid than any other class of profes
sional men and women. A salary
which is paid for nine months must
be made to cover twelve because the
vacation period must be given large
ly to more thorough preparation
for the work which the teacher is
expected to do.
It is fortunate that taxpayers are
willing to contribute generously for
courses of Instruction in scientific
farming, the protection of animals
and trees, and a large yield of grain,
but this expenditure ought not to
reduce expenditures made in behalf
of the children of the community
who compose Its most valuable as
set. The scientific courses of study,
especially the abuse of electlves, the
inadequate provision for urban pu
pils, and the lack of unity in the
American system as a whole were
characterized as serious defects.
The speaker suggested as a means
of .remedying these conditions; First,
the exaltation of the individual in
education; second, the promotion of
thinking; third, due attention to
tho relation between results and pro
cesses. Whllo praising measures re
cently proposed in support of con
servation, such as tho protection of
water supply, the care of forests,
and government supervision of food
supply, the. lecturer emphasized the
fact that tho greatest conservation
problem before the American citi
zen to-day is the sane, well-considered
and purposeful training of
the boys and girls who must In a
few years assume the duties of lead
ership and service.
At the closo of the speaker's ad
dress the "Niagara Male Quartette",
furnished excellent music in solos,
quartottes, piano soles, etc. The
young men were heartily encored.
Ono of the largest audiences ever
to sit beneath the Chautauqua tent
assembled Tuesday evening to greet
Judge Ben B. Lindsey, of Denver,
Colorado. At 7:30 the Niagara Male
Quartette, attired in the Seventeenth
century costume, entertained for a
half hour. At 7:15 Jenkln's Boy
Band and Honesdale Troop of Boy
Scouts assembled at the Allen House
to escort Judge Lindsey, Burgess Mc
carty and Prothonotary W. J. Barnes
to .the tent. Judge Lindsey, by the
way, is a director in the National
Boy Scout movement. At tho close
of this treat, Dr. Turner, platform

sey, Burgess C. A. McCarty and W.
J. Barnes, vice-chairman of the
Honesdale Chautauqua, took their
respective places on the platform bo:

CHILDREN TURN OUT
TO REAR JUDGE LINDSEY
SPOKE TO JUNIOR CHAUTAUQUA
FKO.A1 COURT HOUSE STEPS
He Tells of the AVork Done in Den
ver For the Good of tho Children
How the Juvenile Court Move
ment Has Grown.
A large crowd greeted Judge Ben
B. Lindsey, of Denver, Colorado, on
his arrival in Honesdale Tuesday
morning via automobile. The party
arrived here about ten-fifteen o'clock
and Judge Lindsey registered at the
Allen House. He was then escorted
to the Court House where the large
crowd awaited him. The Junior
Chautauqua under the direction of
Miss Foster gathered at the foot of
the steps leading into the building.
The crowd scattered over the lawn in
front of tho court house expectantly
as Juvenile Court Judge of Denver
arose to speak. On the steps back
of the speaker wero Dr. Turner of
the Chautauqua Association, and sev
eral members of the local committee.
Judge Lindsey spoke mainly to tho
children whom he told of the many
tilings the city of Denver had done
for tho children. He told how he
had upheld boys that were brought
before him for swimming in the pub
lic fountains. He said that as long
as tho city did not furnish public
bathing places for the boys he
would not punish any of them. The
result was that public bathing places
were built for the children of that
For many years Judge Lindsey has
fought the gang and political crooks
of Colorado single handed. Last
spring when he was a candidate for
re-election he was elected by a ma
jority or zt.uuu. This rail he was
elected by a majority of 35,000.
Judge Lindsey told of the neces
sity of having public baths, play
grounds, Boy Scout clubs and van
ous other forms of amusement for
tho children, so as to afford them
the proper kind of amusement. This,
he said, would be an added step in
the right direction, as It would tend
to tho development of more healthful
and bright young citizens.
" AVe givo the children justice out
in Denver," said Judge Lindsey, "for
we know that they are not wholly to
blame for the so-called crime. I try
to be the children's friend for I know
that the children aro my friends."

JUDGE LINDSEY TALKS
DISCOVERY OF Wi Al
THREE FOOT A'EIX OF LEAD ORE
THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN UN
COVERED IX LAKE TWP.
Large Chunk of Metal Brought To
Surface on AVilliam Swingle's
Farm Near Lake Ariel AAlien
Boring n Well.
The discovery of a three-foot vein
of ore beneath the surface of land
owned by William S,wlngle, who
l'ves about a mile north of Lako
Ariel, In Lake township, one day last
week, caused no little excitement
among the people living in this vi
cinity. The vein appears to be a
good one and from the appearance
of the metal it is judged to be lead
ore. The vein runs parallel to a
ledge of rock and lies on top of tho
rock. By the size and appearance
of the specimen that was brought to
the surface it is thought that a rich
deposit of lead ore lies there. For a
a long time it has been tho general
supposition that copper and lead ore
existed in parts of AVayne county but
up to this time no evidence of a vein
had been uncovered. The Swingle
farm lies in rather hilly country
this side of the village of Lake
The discovery of the vein of what
is supposed to be lead ore by Mr.
Swingle came as a surprise. Ho had
been engaged in boring a well on
his place and last Friday after
hoisting the loose dirt and clay from
the hole he found a large piece of
metal. The piece gave evidence of
having been cut away from a larger
formation and was about three feet
in thickness. The metal was soft
enough for the drill to cut through
and it lav on ton nf a rnck formation
It is not known just how far be
neath the surface tho. vein was en
countered. Samples of the ore tend
to prove that tho find is a valuable
one, but Mr. Swingle in all probabil
ity will send the ore specimens to
the assay office at Washington for
The finding of what is supposed
to be a lead deposit in Lake town
ship recalls to mind a story that has
been handed down for many gener
atons concerning the existence of
lead ore. The story originated with
the Indians and appears to have
been about the time of the Revolu
tonary war. Old residents state for
a fact that the Indians who roamed
the lands at that time knew of the
existence of lead ore and for some
unknown . reason concealed the
knowledge from the white settlers
after their advent into that region.
It was only by accident, so It Is
stated, that its existence became
known to the settlers and then after
finding the mine they were no long
er able to locate It.
The Indian mind was subtle and
evidently knowing that lead was
used for the making of bullets for
their muskets, also realized that It
was better to keep the location of
the mine a secret.
An old resident of that locality
relates that when his father was a
young man and the valley was yet
the home of the red man, he and
another man brought up the. subject
of the existence of lead while con
versing with a friendly native. The
old Indian said that the story was
true but refused to tell them where
it could be found. After some per
suasion the Indian consented to lead
them to the mine and secure for
them a small quantity of the ore If
they would allow themselves to be
blindfolded. The men submitted
and the Indian led the way through
the forest, winding in and out as he
did so, so that a trail could not bo
followed. In due time tho bandages
were taken from their eyes and they
beheld a largo flat stone lying be
fore them. They wero in an open
space in tho forest. Tho stone was
removed, revealing a hole Into the
earth. Tho old Indian bade the men
descend into the hole and take what
they wanted. They took tholr axes
and chopped away from what ap
peared to bo an endless supply of
lead. Taking as much as they could
carry, they were again blindfolded
and led away. They tried to mark
the trail by breaking off twigs from
the shrubbery and trees but in mak
ing an attempt to find the spot in
the midst of tho forest a second time
they failed. The trail had been lost.
Many times people have searched for
this lead mine and failed and tho
story as It Is handed down from
generation to generation loses none
of Its mystery and leaves the present
day people of that region still won
dering whether or not there ever was
such a mine. Perhaps Mr. Swingle
has stumbled onto an end of the
vein. AVho knows?
